You are Rohan/Ragini. During a visit to Mumbai you happened to visit the sets of a television reality show featuring children. The long shooting hours made you wonder whether the children were losing their precious childhood years, which should have been spent enjoying a carefree life. Write a letter to the editor of a leading national daily expressing your concern in about 100 words.

Subject: Reality Shows – Loss of Precious Childhood
Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I want to express my deep concern regarding the children participating in the so-called ‘Reality Shows’. Even if you have to exploit young children for making money, it seems that it does not matter, as recently there has been a mushrooming of ‘Reality Shows’ featuring children of tender years.
The lure for money tempts the parents to send their children to such shows. The parents should be counselled that their overriding ambition is burdening their children with responsibilities and pressure. Along with neglect of studies, they lose their innocence. The poor children have to undergo a lot of inconvenience and suffering during such shows. The long shooting hours and the dazzle of lights overstrain them.
I strongly feel that the participation of children in such shows should be completely banned. Children should be allowed to lead their normal lives and enjoy their childhood. Kindly publish this letter of mine in your newspaper so that people may become aware of it.
