VCD producers should not make shows for just recreational purposes but also for education, said Tamil Nesan.
Quoting Datin Seri Indrani, the wife of MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, the paper said that most VCDs in the market were only to entertain people.
It would be fruitful to the community if they served a more useful purpose, she said.
Indrani, who is president of the Sri Sruthi Mandram, a non-governmental organisation for Indian women, made this call when launching a VCD magazine in Ipoh on Saturday.
The monthly magazine documents, among other issues, the difficulties of Indian families in raising disabled children.
Indrani said more should be done to help these families.
In another Tamil Nesan report, Johor MIC chairman Datuk K.S. Balakrishnan urged youths to be IT-savvy to benefit from the opportunities that come their way.
He said this when opening the partys state Youth convention on Saturday, adding that there were hundreds of sectors that they could take part in.
