Retirement Message from RK Saksena, ADG(D), DGAIR



Dear Friends,

Time has come for me to say “GOOD BYE” to all my colleagues. I am superannuating today after serving the department for 33 years. It was a long but very fruitful & satisfying journey. I had the privilege of being part of the Golden Era of AIR when AIR Engineering fraternity had made a lot of valuable contribution to various international fora and earned international fame for the department.

I started my journey in AIR from the East Zone office at Kolkata in 1981 and went on to serve the department in various capacities at various AIR Stations, Zonal Offices & the Directorate. Every ‘seat’ was a Temple of Learning and every individual, with who I worked, was a source of knowledge. Whatever little I could achieve in the department was due to the contribution made by one & all.

Today when I reflect back, I only find fond memories of the years I have spent in the department and a sense of gratitude to all my senior officers who guided me during my formative years.

I take this opportunity to say my sincere thanks and Best Wishes to one & all.

[R. K.  SAKSENA]
Addl. Director General(Dev)

Sh. RK Saksena will be remembered as one of the most dedicated, straight forward and perfectionist officer of All India Radio. PB Parivar wishes him a healthy, happy and contented retired life.

शशिकांत व्यास ADP AIR Indore आज होंगे सेवानिवृत्त.....

सेवानिवृत्त होने से अब आपका पत्र में नहीं सुनाई देंगे शशिकांत व्यास....सतत रूप से कई वर्षों तक श्रोताओं के पत्रों का जवाब देने वाले शशिकांत व्यास अब इस कार्यक्रम में सुनायी नहीं देंगे । श्री व्यास अपनी मीठी, सधी हुई आवाज से श्रोताओं की शिकायत को इतने प्यार से पढते थे कि श्रोता स्वयं ही सब कुछ भूल कर अगले कार्यक्रम में प्रशंसा पत्र भेज देता था ।
अपने सादगी पूर्ण और मधुर व्यवहार के चलते सारी समस्याओं और लोगों के गुस्से को शिव की तरह पी जाने वाले व्यास जी की कमी आकाशवाणी इन्दौर को बहुत खलेगी ।37 वर्ष के आकाशवाणी के सफर में शायद ही किसी ने उन्हें गुस्सा होते देखा होगा । स्वयं मैने भी उनके साथ कई बार ऐसी कई बातें की होंगी जो कि किसी भी व्यक्ति को उत्तेजित कर दे लेकिन व्यास जी जिस मिट्टी के बने थे उसमें गुस्सा नाम का कण था ही नहीं ।
10 नवम्बर 1976 को आकाशवाणी इन्दौर में उद्घोषक के रूप में नियुक्त होने वाले शशिकांत ने आकाशवाणी इन्दौर में कई कार्यक्रमों को लोकप्रिय बनाने में अपनी भूमिका निभाई । श्री व्यास 1988 में यूपीएससी से कार्यक्र्म अधिकारी के रूप में चयनित हुए । और ज्वाईन किया आकाशवाणी जयपुर में वहॉं से कार्यक्रम अधिकारी के रूप में वे बाडमेर, छिंदवाडा, इन्दौर, जगदलपुर में अपनी सेवायें देने के बाद वापस इन्दौर पंहुचे इन्दौर में सहायक निदेशक के रूप में पदस्थ होने के बाद आज 31 मार्च 2014 को वे सेवानिवृत्त हो रहे हैं ।
श्री शशिकांत व्यास ने अपने जीवन के शुरूआती दौर में ही प्रसिद्ध साहित्यकारों, कलाकारों, गायकों के साथ साक्षात्कार का अनुभव ले लिया था इनमें प्रमुख रूप से शिवमंगलसिंह सुमन व स्वर कोकिला सुश्री लता मंगेशकर जैसी हस्तियॉं शामिल रही हैं । 
श्री शशिकांत व्यास ने अपने कार्यकाल के उत्तरार्ध में कई महत्वपूर्ण कार्यों में अपनी सहभागिता दी है इसमें 3 नए आकाशवाणी केन्द्रों का शुभारंभ भी शामिल है इसमें से एक आकाशवाणी का उज्जैन केन्द्र हैं वहीं 2 रिले सेंटर रलताम एवं झाबुआ भी शामिल है । इन कार्यों के दौरान ये देखने में आया कि वे 24 घंटे कार्य को तत्पर रहते थे । चाहे देर रात को ही घर लौटे हो और सुबह 6 बजे फिर जाना हो तो भी व्यास जी तैयार मिलते थे ।
इन्दौर केन्द्र पर एक लोकसेवा प्रसारक के रूप में वे आकाश्वाणी इन्दौर के आधार स्तंभ श्री रामचंद्र मण्डलोई जिन्हें श्रोता कान्हा जी के नाम से याद करते हैं उनका साक्षात्कार करने सुदूर ग्राम उन में श्रोता अनुसंधान टीम के साथ पंहुच गये थे । इसी तरह श्रोता अनुसंधान के फीडबैक पर लोकप्रिय कवि श्री बालकवि बैरागी का साक्षात्कार, संस्कृत समाचार की पहचान बने श्री बलदेवानंद सागर का साक्षात्कार भी श्री व्यास द्वारा किया गया । 
श्रोता अनुसंधान टीम के साथ श्री व्यास जी ने ग्रामीण क्षेत्रों में कई श्रोता सम्मेलनों में अपनी शिरकत की है इसमें उन्हेल, आलोट, बडवाह, सनावद, खरगोन, महाराष्ट का शेगांव और यवतमाल भी शामिल हैं यह श्री व्यास की का ही प्रयास है कि आज आकाशवाणी इन्दौर श्रोताओं के बीच फिर से अपनी कुछ पहचान बना पाया है । आकाशवाणी इन्दौर कार्यक्रम प्रभारी के रूप में प्रभारी का नम्बर सदा ही श्रोताओं के लिए उपलब्ध रहा करता था उनकी श्रोताओं के बीच लोकप्रियता का आलम ये हैं कि साल भर पहले प्रभारी का कार्यभार छोड देने के बाद भी श्रोता गाहे बगाहे उसी नम्बर पर कॉल कर लेते हैं । श्री व्यास की कार्यप्रणाली और व्यवहार के चलते उनके इस योगदान की कमी आकाशवाणी इन्दौर में लम्बे समय तक महसूस की जाती रहेगी । सेवानिवृत्ति पर प्रसार भारती परिवार की ओर से हार्दिक शुभकामनायें..
श्री व्यास को शुभकामनाये देना चाहे तो उनके मोबाईल नम्बर 9575102588 पर उनसे संपर्क किया जा सकता है ।

RNU AIR Kohima Event - Nagaland CEO Calls on Media to Provide Correct Info to People

Nagaland Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Sentiyanger Imchen on 29-03-2014,called upon media to provide correct and unbiased information to the public. Addressing the inaugural function on the topic "Sensitisation on role of Public Service Broadcasting in election coverage" organised by Regional News Unit (RNU) of All India Radio (AIR) Kohima, Imchen said it is very essential that the information provided in the news should be correct.

"People generally accept the news in media to be correct without going into the veracity," he said while cautioning that media report the facts without favouring any particular party or person. He also urged the public broadcaster to educate the electorates to come out to exercise their franchise on the day of the polling scheduled for April 9 in Nagaland. The State Election Department, he said, has made arrangements for live casting of over 100 polling stations while also maintaining that the counting of votes on May 16 would also be live through web from the all 12 counting centres.

Resource person for the workshop, Additional Director DAVP New Delhi, Manikant Thakur asked the reporters and correspondents of public sector broadcasters like AIR and DD not to indulge in any controversial reporting to come into the limelight themselves. He also stressed on the need for the correspondents to emphasise on spreading awareness amongst the first time and women voters.
