Save the teens

Teenagers today are growing up in a dangerous environment. I am a student of an eminent English medium school and witnessing this destruction taking place first hand. In TV, our own channels provide little entertainment for adolescents so we turn to foreign channels where scenes of kissing and other immoral acts are only normal. Today most teens are more attracted to 'Indian Idol' and 'Hot and Wild' than to 'Medhabi', 'Horlicks Genius Bangladesh' or 'India's Child Genius'. In my classroom alone, indecent behaviour by some students during the break is not uncommon but a daily affair. This is extremely sad, as such behaviour is not a part of our culture or religion. Can anyone save the teens from such moral degradation?
