TOI - Adults Only

sj had written
Look at Times of India, especially the Bangalore Times supplement. Yes, it does help kids develop their General Knowledge - but of a different kind. Why not impose a ban on such tabloid newspapers.
His wish may be granted, though not with a ban, and not by the government. The Supreme Court is working on it. Our prayers are with the petitioners. Wouldn't it be supremely befitting if ToI were forced to warn its readers on the front page, just below the name
This newspaper contains sexually explicit material. It is not suitable for children aged 18 years and below. Parental discretion advised.
Appealing as the thought is, much more so is the hope that parents vote with their wallets and cease letting this vile newspaper into their homes.
