PASSAGE

A study of Hum Log’s audience showed that a high degree of para social interaction occurred between the audience members and their favorite Hum Log characters. For example, many Hum Log viewers reported that they routinely adjusted their daily schedules to ‘meet’ their favourite character ‘in the privacy of their living rooms’. Many other individuals reported talking to their favorite characters through the television sets; for instance, “Don’t worry, Badki. Do not give up your dream of making a career.”



Hum Log achieved audience ratings of 65 to 90 percent in North India and between 20 and 45 percent in south India. About 50 million individuals watched the average broadcast of Hum Log. One unusual aspect of this soap opera was the huge number of letters, over 400,000 that it attracted from viewers; so many that most of them could not be opened by Doordarshan officials.

  1. (a) In what ways did viewers express their interest in T.V. programmes like Hum Log? How do you think they express their interest today?

Q30 (b) Discuss the ways in which a mass medium like television can act as a powerful agent influencing public opinion in both positive and negative ways.

Passage Question:

Q30. Read the given passage and answer the following questions



PASSAGE

In a country where half the children in the age group of 5-14 are out of school how can there be space for children with disabilities, specially if a segregated schooling is being advocated for them? Even if the legislation optimistically tries to make education available to every disabled child, parents in a village do not see this as instrumental in achieving any autonomy for their disabled child. What they would prefer is perhaps a better way of fetching water from the well and improved agricultural facilities. Similarly, parents in an urban slum expect education to be related to a world of work that would enhance their child’s basic quality of life. [Source: Anita Ghai, “Disability in the Indian Context”, 2002:93]





  1. (a) According to the author of this passage, what kind of educational facilities do disabled children need? Do you agree? Give reasons for your answer.

(b) It is said that social attitudes towards the disabled are as much of a problem for them as their disability itself. What is the justification for such a view, and what is your own opinion on this issue?
