    In this article, an example o! a kid @sycholo"ist(s poll with set o! parents and teachers

    the option *$ )owe#er, later the psycholo"ist pro#ed with a #ideo communication aout

    kids which showed that 40 o! kids would eha#e like cartoon characters$

    %he article stated that suconsciously kids are prone to !ollow what they see and hear

    on the cartoons =2011, p$ , para$2>$ 7hen children see !i"hts, !ury, #en"eance they

    In my research arena, I otted down se#eral research Fuestions to !ind out whether )indi

    Are Hindi cartoon shows influencing change in the beha#ior of kids?

    'y hypothesis is that today(s kids are smart and as usual they try to imitate what they

    like$ )owe#er, there is a ri"ht side and dark side o! it$ )indi *artoon show dilemma is

    I assume to !ind out that the kids who pre!er those cartoon shows are imitatin" or

    eha#in" like the cartoon characters$ As a result, they are adaptin" other cultural #alues

    rather than their own$ In my opinion, the parents are worried aout this dilemma that

    )indi cartoons ha#e caused$
