What would fill the children’s minds with joy when there is no TV according to the poet Roald Dahl in the poem ‘Television’?
According to the poet, only books can give real joy to the young minds. Once they start reading, they will find it interesting to read more and more books. That will give them the imagination and thoughts, the knowledge and wisdom, the satisfaction of mind and heart. And at one stage they will grow so keen on reading books that they will wonder what they had found in that silly machine called television. They will find the television screen disgusting and unclean then, as they will discover the real joy of reading books.
