According to the poet, to save the children from the addiction and other ill-effects of television watching, the parents should —

  • never let their children near the television set,
  • throw away the idiotic box, and
  • install a lovely bookshelf in its place and fill the shelves with lots of books.

the poet has suggested to throw the set and install a bookshelf on the wall and after some time when the children have nothing to do..they will eventually start reading books and slowly it will become their habit

The poet suggests that parents should not install the idiotic box at home and rather install a bookshelf in its place. It helps us increase our creative faculty and saves us from loss of our imaginative power staring at the idiotic box.
