I&B Minister inaugurates BES Expo 2013


Minister for Information & Broadcasting, Shri Manish Tewari has said with the exponential growth in the media space, a paradigm shift has taken place wherein regulations have to keep pace with changing technologies. An enabling statutory environment has to be in place to keep pace with changes taking place across platforms. The changing landscape of the Media and entertainment industry had enabled it to become one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy. This had been facilitated by policies that have encouraged investments, sustainability for business models and promoted entrepreneurship and innovation. It was imperative that the industry specially the Broadcasting sector had learnt to adopt, adapt and innovate with the changes taking place. Shri Tewari stated this while delivering his address at the BES Expo 2013 here today. 

The Minister further stated that the renewed thrust by the industry has reinforced the concept of inclusive growth. “Inclusive Growth” is an act of faith - It was a developmental model that addressed the concerns of each stakeholder and recipient by the effective placement of social development programmes and policies. On the issue of democratization of media, Shri Tewari stated that it was important to understand the implications of this process on the social ethos of the country and the people at large.

Shri Manish Tewari further mentioned that due to the paradigm shift taking place, Broadcasting shall always remain a dynamic medium of communication. The guiding principles for this sector will always be innovation, ingenuity and the vision to converge technologies. Conferences such as BES Expo 2013 provided an opportunity to introspect and bring about changes at the policy level keeping in mind the roadmap and requirements of the future.

Earlier addressing the delegates, Shri Sam Pitroda, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Public Information Infrastructure and Innovations said technology had brought about a major change in the lives of the people.The shift was also visible in the way the broadcasting sector was functioning. The challenge lay in imbibing the innovations in the critical sectors which would determine the course in the future. During the course of his address , Shri Pitroda gave an overview of the initiatives undertaken by the government to strengthen the national knowledge network and public infrastructure system. In the course of his address, Secretary I&B, Shri Uday Kumar Varma highlighted the changes that had taken place in the sector in view of the policy initiatives undertaken recently and the immediate concerns that had to be addressed by the industry at large.

आकाशवाणी भोपाल का दो दिवसीय नाट्य महोत्सव संपन्न


आकाशवाणी भोपाल द्वारा विगत 17 एवं 18 जनवरी 2013 को ’’दो दिवसीय नाट्य समारोह’’ आयोजन किया गया । इस नाट्य समारोह में राष्ट्रकवि मैथिलीशरण गुप्त द्वारा रचित काव्यकृति “भारत भारती” की नाट्य प्रस्तुति तथा नाटक फूलमती का मंचन किया गया ।
आकाशवाणी भोपाल द्वारा भोपाल के शहीद भवन में आयोजित इस दो दिवसीय नाट्य समारोह के पहले दिन 17 जनवरी 2013 को रीवा के ’’पारिजात रंग समूह’’ द्वारा नाटक ’’फूलमती’’ का मंचन किया गया ।
आंचक गीतो के समावेश से परिपूर्ण रीवा के पारिजात रंग समूह द्वारा तैयार यह नाटक एक ऐसी महिला की कहानी पर आधारित है जो अपने अधिकारों के लिए लडना जानती है । और जिसे किसी के दबाव में आकर गलत काम करना कतई गवारा नहीं है । नाटक की शुरूआत अनुसूचित जाति की गरीब महिला फूलमती से होती है । फूलमती का का पति छोटेलाल हमेशा वर्तमान में जीना चाहता है वह वही काम करना उचित समझता है जिसमे वर्तमान में फायदा हो । वहीं मातादीन नाम का दबंग आदमी है जो मासूम एवं दलित गांव वालों पर तरह-तरह के अत्याचार करता है । फूलमती इस अत्याचारों का विरोध करती है तो छोटेलाल अपनी पत्नी को समझाता है कि वह मातादीन के खिलाफ न जाए, मातादीन से विद्रोह करना सही नही होगा । लेकिन सही रास्ते पर चलने वाली फूलमती अपने पति से तो टकराती ही है फिर पति के साथ आ जाने पर वह मातादीन का जमकर विरोध करती है । इस सबके बीच वह कई बार टूटती बिखरती है नाटक के अंत में फूलमती को निराशा के क्षणों में सूचना मिलती है कि इस बार के गणतंत्र दिवस पर झण्डा फहराने के लिए उसे आमंत्रित किया गया है तो वह खुशी से फूली नहीं समाती है । सम्मान की यह अनुभूति फूलमती में नई आशा का संचार कर देती है और वह संकल्प लेती है कि अब वह पूरे जीवन गलत बातों के विरूद्ध संघर्ष करती रहेगी क्योंकि संघर्ष कभी बेकार नहीं जाता ।
नाटक में फूलमती की भूमिका में सुनीता शरण, छोटेलाल के किरदार में राजाजी राव व मातादीन के पात्र के रूप में फखरूद्दीन थे । नाटक का लेखन व निर्देशन योगेश त्रिपाठी ने किया ।

नाट्य समारोह के दूसरे दिन 18 जनवरी 2013 को राष्ट्रकवि मैथिलीषरण गुप्त द्वारा रचित काव्यकृति “भारत भारती” का मंचन रंगशीर्ष नाटय संस्था भोपाल द्वारा किया गया। भोपाल के जाने माने रंगकर्मी श्री संजय मेहता के निर्देशन में मंचित यह नाटक पूरी तरह संगीतमय था, राष्ट्रीयता से ओतप्रोत इस नाटक की शुरूआत कविता से हुई " हम कौन थे, क्या हो गए, क्या होना है अभी, आओ विचारे आज मिलकर ये समस्या सभी"

इस नाटक में कलाकारों ने स्वदेश प्रेम के माध्यम से भारत को, दुनिया में शिरोमणि रूप में स्थापित करने का आह्वान किया। मंचन में निर्देशक ने अपनी निर्देशकीय क्षमताओं का प्रभाव छोड़ते हुए कलाकारों के अभिनय पक्ष का भरपूर उपयोग किया । नाटक में प्रकाश व्यवस्था मंच सज्जा, वेष-भूषा आदि के द्वारा ’’भारत भारती’’ की श्रेष्ठ प्रस्तुति की गई, जिसे भोपाल के रंगकर्मियों व दर्शकों ने बहुत पसंद किया ।

उल्लेखनीय है कि विगत एक वर्ष से आकाशवाणी भोपाल द्वारा आमंत्रित श्रोताओं की उपस्थिति में लगातार मंच पर कार्यक्रमों का आयोजन किया जा रहा है जिसे आमंत्रित श्रोताओं /दर्शकों का बहुत प्रतिसाद मिल रहा है। आकाशवाणी भोपाल के कार्यालय प्रमुख पं.रामस्वरूप रतौनिया के मार्गदर्शन में आयोजित, इन कार्यक्रमों के मूल में आकाशवाणी के महानिदेशक श्री लीलाधर मंडलोई की परिकल्पना को आकाशवाणी भोपाल द्वारा लगातार मूर्त रूप प्रदान किया जा रहा है ।

“The idea is to give viewers an opportunity to watch a modern channel and give them modern programming, beginning with the prime time slot.”-Tripurari Sharan, Director-General, Doordarshan



In a bid to consolidate its position as a mass channel, national broadcaster Doordarshan has revamped its look and also sought to consolidate its 8-10 prime time slot with new shows.

Doordarshan has witnessed several changes in the last few months with a huge amount of money being allotted by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, as well as a slew of fresh recruitments.

The revamp has been carried out in three major channels of Doordarshan – Doordarshan, DD News and DD Urdu.

He further said, “We are also changing DD News by bringing in new faces and presenting news in a different way. There will be news and discussions in a one-hour format for Hindi and English news. The new packaging will create multiple windows and new technology will take it one notch higher.”

Among the new shows is one titled ‘Yeh Hai India Meri Jaan’ by Saeed Mirza. With this, the well-known filmmaker – known for his works such as ‘Nukkad’, ‘Salim Langde Pe Mat Ro’ and ‘Albert Pinto Ko
Gussa Kyun Ata Hai’ – returns to Doordarshan after 20 years.

Expression of Gratefulness to Chief Executive Officer, Prasar Bharati



 We feel overwhelmed to see a word of applause in the message of our CEO on completion of 65 years of AIR Patna on 26.01.2013 for which we are thankful to him.

We, on behalf of each and every member of staff of AIR, are immensely enthused by the introduction of a game changer initiative by our learned CEO Shri Jawhar Sirkar, IAS. The launching of Prasar Bharati Blog will synchronize the State media with the new media / social media and thus with the current social order. Our leader has granted an additional sense of purpose and belonging. Our team feel privileged to have a visionary CEO who keeps us focused to the mission statements of AIR & Doordarshan which ultimately makes our democracy more vibrant and lively.  The suggestion of our CEO that ‘Celebrations’, by giving their best to the society vis-a-vis the nation, ought to be a continuing affair and a HR practice, will encourage us to go on achieving milestones in services.

Our team is indebted to our CEO who bothers for his employees that learning (working with New Media) should be a career long process. Kindly rest assured that, at the station level, the management will take all possible steps to ensure that human resources at our end are well trained. Staff will be encouraged to summon courage to step out of their comfort zone. Certainly, they will understand, trying something new opens up the possibility of discovering a love and passion for something new, thereby recognizingthemselves that they are on the path of excellence, which is an important part of professionalism.Development requires that we take new actions. Thrusting oneself into new situations often forces gradual beneficial changes in skills. There might be problems and setbacks but that will disappear as soon as the learning takes off, knowledge escalates and performance soars. Therefore, we hereby pledge our obligation to the views expressed in the message of our CEO, to stations regarding achieving comfortable level of IT literacy.

The initiative in this regard at our station is on the verge of achieving 100% accessibility for employees through a network of computer/internet based communication system, integrating Progrmme, Engineering, Administration, Regional News Unit and Audience Research points of action. We all attribute success of our efforts to the encouragement and blessings we use to receive from our hon’ble CEO. We further beg to submit that our team of officers and officials will never be found lacking in so far as preserving the legacy and honour of Prasar Bharati is concerned.
