आकाशवाणी भोपाल में राजभाषा पर कार्यशाला संपन्न...


विगत् 29 जून, 2015 को आकाशवाणी भोपाल राजभाषा कार्यान्वयन समिति द्वारा विज्ञापन प्रसारण सेवा तथा सिविल निर्माण स्कंध कार्यालय आकाशवाणी भोपाल के संयुक्त तत्वावधान में एक ‘‘पूर्णकालिक एक दिवसीय हिन्दी कार्यशाला’’ का आयोजन किया गया।
आकाशवाणी भोपाल के सभाकक्ष में आयोजित इस हिन्दी कार्यशाला का शुभारंभ प्रातः 11.30 बजे आकाशवाणी भोपाल राजभाषा कार्यान्वयन समिति के अध्यक्ष व आकाशवाणी भोपाल के उप निदेशक (कार्यक्रम)/केन्द्राध्यक्ष श्री अनवार अहमद खान तथा कार्यक्रम के अध्यक्ष व उप निदेशक (अभियांत्रिकी)/अभियांत्रिकी प्रमुख श्री सुदर्शन अंसोलिया ने माँ सरस्वती के चित्र पर माल्यार्पण के पश्चात्, दीप प्रज्जवलित कर किया। इस अवसर पर विज्ञापन प्रसारण सेवा की कार्यक्रम निष्पादक/कार्यालय प्रमुख श्रीमती रेखा श्रीवास्तव के साथ दिल्ली से पधारे श्री अशोक कुमार वरिष्ठ लेखा अधिकारी, इरला ग्रुप, सूचना एवं प्रसारण मंत्रालय, भारत सरकार, नई दिल्ली भी विशिष्ट अतिथि के रूप में शुभारंभ समारोह मंे मौजूद थे।
कार्यशाला शुभारंभ के अवसर पर उप निदेशक (कार्यक्रम)/केन्द्राध्यक्ष श्री अनवार अहमद खान ने उपस्थित अधिकारियों/कार्मिकों को अपने संबोधन में कहा कि हम सबको अपनी राज-काज की भाषा अर्थात् राजभाषा के साथ-साथ अपनी मातृभाषा का सम्मान करना बहुत आवश्यक है। आपने अपनी बात को आगे बढ़ाते हुए कहा कि अपनी मातृभाषा और राजभाषा अपनी माँ के समान है और अपनी माँ का सम्मान करना हमारे लिए गौरव की बात होनी चाहिए। श्री खान ने आगे कहा कि दुनिया के सभी देशों में उनकी अपनी-अपनी भाषाओं में ही काम-काज होता है तथा वे अपनी भाषा में ही बात करना और काम-काज करना पसंद करते हैं। हमारे देश में लंबे समय तक अंग्रेजी राज होने से अंग्रेजी में काम करने की हमारी प्रवृत्ति बन गई है जबकि हकीकत यह है कि हम हिन्दी में जितनी अच्छी तरह से अपनी बात कर सकते हैं उतना प्रभावी ढंग से अंग्रेजी मंे नहीं कर सकते, इसका कारण है कि, हिन्दी और मातृभाषा से हमारा जुड़ाव जितना अधिक है उतना अंग्रेजी से नहीं, इसलिए हम सब अंग्रेजी भाषा में उतने दक्ष नहीं है जितना कि हिन्दी में। आपने अपनी बात को समाप्त करते हुए कहा कि गलत अंग्रेजी लिखने और बोलने से बेहतर है कि हम सब अपना सरकारी काम-काज राजभाषा हिन्दी में करें।

अपने अध्यक्षीय उद्बोधन में उप निदेशक (अभियांत्रिकी)/अभियांत्रिकी प्रमुख श्री सुदर्शन अंसोलिया ने कहा कि हिन्दी एक ऐसी सहज सरल भाषा है जो हम सब के बहुत करीब है, जबकि अंग्रेजी में काम-काज करते समय हम में वह विश्वास नहीं आता जो कि, हिन्दी में कार्य करते समय आता है। श्री अंसोलिया ने कहा कि हमारा कार्यालय ‘‘क’’ क्षेत्र के अंतर्गत आता है, अतः हम सबको अपना सरकारी काम-काज राजभाषा हिंदी में ही करना चाहिए। आपने अपनी बात को स्पष्ट करते हुए कहा कि मुझे खुशी है कि, हमारे कार्यालय में बहुत अधिक कार्यालयीन कार्य हिन्दी में होता है तथा हिन्दी काम-काज के निर्धारित लक्ष्य को प्राप्त करने में हमारे समस्त अधिकारियों और कार्मिकों की अहम भूमिका है। आपने अपने उद्बोधन के अंत में कहा कि, हम सबका दायित्व है कि हम सब अपना शासकीय काम-काज सरल, सहज हिन्दी में ही करें, ताकि हम अपने निर्धारित लक्ष्य को प्राप्त कर सकें।

इस एक दिवसीय पूर्णकालिक हिन्दी कार्यशाला में आकाशवाणी भोपाल, विज्ञापन प्रसारण सेवा तथा सिविल निर्माण स्कंध कार्यालय के 40 से भी अधिक अधिकारियों व कार्मिकों ने हिस्सा लिया। कार्यशाला में ‘‘हिन्दी पत्राचार तथा हिन्दी टिप्पण आलेखन में हिन्दी का प्रयोग’’, ‘‘मानक शब्दावली’’ तथा ‘‘प्रोत्साहन योजनाएं’’ विषय पर व्याख्यान आयोजित किए गए। व्याख्यान के पश्चात् समन्वयक द्वय राजीव श्रीवास्तव व श्री अनिल श्रीवास्तव ने कार्यशाला में प्रतिभागिता करने वाले अधिकारियों/कार्मिकों की जिज्ञासाओं, प्रश्नों, शंकाओं तथा हिन्दी काम-काज में आने वाली कठिनाईयों का समाधान किया।

DD Kisan cultivates a dedicated viewership

DD Kisan has attracted viewers, but application of new farm technology shown on the channel remains a challenge. When a farmer from Rajasthan ended his life at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar during a protest against the land acquisition bill in April, prime-time television immediately launched into blame game. The problems faced by the farmers became the backdrop.But such occasions are rare.

The problems of India’s farm sector and allied occupations, on which 60% of world’s second-most populous nation depends, are rarely the focal point of television news or debates.DD Kisan, a 24x7 channel launched by the state broadcaster Doordarshan (DD) on 26 May was meant to change this.A month on, it is proving to be a sort of game changer in attracting rural audience. It’s very likely to earn many times more than the government investment into it, and it’s only a matter of time before the private channels follow suit, say top executives at the channel.

The steady stream of calls from farmers across the country on the channel’s live evening show, Hello Kisan, is a testimony to this. On 23 June, the topic of discussion was crop insurance and farm credit. Guided by an anchor, two experts—an insurer and a rural banker—addressed farmers’ queries ranging from rates of insurance premium to how much loan a dairy farmer can get from a bank.A disgruntled farmer from Rajasthan asked, “My premiums get deducted, but why don’t I ever get paid or even have a paper showing that my crop is insured?”

Not just Hello Kisan, the channel has lined up an array of such programmes.

सेवा निवृत्ति के बाद अन्तर्राष्ट्रीय पर्यटन- एक बेहतर मनोरंजन


वर्ष 2013 में आकाशवाणी में कार्यक्रम अधिकारी पद से सेवानिवृत्त होने के बाद मैने अपना अधिकांश समय लेखन और पर्यटन को समर्पित कर दिया है ।देश के लगभग सभी पर्यटन स्थलों का भ्रमण करने के बाद मैं सपत्नीक 12 दिवसीय यूरोप टूर पर निकल रहा हूँ ।इंग्लैंड, स्विट्ज़रलैंड,फ्रांस, आस्ट्रिया ,इटली आदि देशों की सैर करने का भरपूर रोमांच युवा जीवन के समान महसूस कर रहा हूं ।इस दौरान हम लोग इन देशों में बने इस्कान के मंदिरों का भी अवलोकन करेंगे । रिटायरमेंट के बाद जीवन में अचानक आये इस खालीपन को कुछ हद तक इस तरह समय समय पर पर्यटन करके भरा ही नहीं रोमांचित भी किया जा सकता है ।

Bharti likely to start making set-top boxes in India

Firm plans to make STBs in Pune in partnership with an electronics manufacturing company
A company under Sunil Bharti Mittal-led Bharti Enterprises Ltd is likely to make set-top boxes in partnership with an electronics manufacturer in the country.“Bharti is planning to make set-top boxes (STBs) in Pune in partnership with an electronics manufacturing company under its commitment to support Prime Minister’s vision on Make in India,” a source aware of the project said. A Bharti Enterprises spokesperson declined to comment.

The process of cable digitisation is under way in a phased manner, which is fuelling demand for STBs. The government has mandated that the cable TV transmission would be done through digital addressable system only where consumer can access to large number of TV channels compared to only 60-70 channels that they can access through analog cable transmission.The switch over from analog system to digital is being done in four phases. The phase 3 would complete by the end of this year while the last phase by next year. Foreign STB makers almost wiped out domestic players during phase 1 and 2 of cable TV digitalisation with around 95 market share. These phases covered Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and 38 cities having population of more than 10 lakh.

Out of total installation of about 55 million units, domestic players were able to sell about 10 million units of STBs as on December, 2012. By March 2014, more than 22 million STBs were deployed in the country, as per telecom and broadcast regulator Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai).As per industry estimates, the cable digitisation programme has created huge demand for STBs and it is likely to reach 75 million units by 2016-17.

Set-top box for smartphones



The TVOnGo device allows you to use your smartphone as a full-fledged TV without the need of any Internet connectivity. It runs on Sony’s Digital TV (DTV) tuner module, which enables mobile devices to receive signal from various types of digital terrestrial TV broadcast systems. Essentially, it acts like a set-top box for your mobile phone.

TVOnGo has been developed by New Delhi-based AB Innovators, in association with multinational company Sony Corp. It is a first-of-its-kind device in India.

TVOnGo is a compact device, only slightly bigger than a pen drive. It works with any smartphone that has OTG (on-the-go) compatibility and plugs into the micro USB port on the phone. It does not require any additional power source and does not drain the phone’s battery. The device has an integrated antenna that can be used for improving signal reception, but we didn’t notice any major improvement in signal strength during our tests. Our only worry is that for a device meant to be used on the move, it doesn’t feel hardy.

Usability: plug and play

To use TVOnGo, all you have to do is plug the device into a smartphone’s micro USB port and download the free TvOnGo app from the Google Play store. The app lists all compatible phones, so you can easily check if TVOnGo will work on your phone......read more at

Be punctual or face actio-. Govt warns central government employees

Monday warned all its employees to come in time to offices, failure of which might attract disciplinary action.The Department of Personnel and Training has written to all central government ministries to ensure punctuality in government offices.

"Habitual late attendance is viewed as conduct unbecoming of a government servant and disciplinary action may be taken against such a government servant. It is also added that punctuality in attendance is to be observed by government servants at all levels," the DoPT said in its missive. Service rules stipulates that every government servant shall at all times maintain devotion to duty, it said.

There are about 48 lakh central government employees working across the country. The DoPT order said instructions have been issued from time to time with regard to the need to observe punctuality by government servants. "Responsibility for ensuring punctuality in respect of their employees rests within ministries, departments or offices," it said.

The Centre has also introduced Aadhaar-enabled enabled Bio-metric Attendance System (AEBAS) in central government offices, including attached and sub-ordinate offices, to replace the manual system of marking of attendance. The AEBAS system to ensure punctuality is to be implemented in all ministries and departments, the DoPT said.

"There have been instances of tardiness by employees in coming to offices. The ministries have been asked to ensure that all employees mark their attendance through the biometric system and take action against habitual offenders," a senior DoPT official said.

As I will be walking on to the sunset for my colleagues and friends in Doordarshan and Prasar Bharati, I would be preparing myself for a fresh innings or who knows fresh game in altogether different terrain in my life. To all those, who loved me, hated me, appreciated me and tainted me, I would like to say just one thing- I always wore the jersey of Doordarshan and Prasar Bharati with pride, and this pride has ever been my strength and honor.

Wearing this jersey, I worked to the best of my ability. I gave my best. Wearing this jersey, I got the best. As I leave this jersey today, I would like to say that I have no regrets for what I did. As I am about to hang this jersey I would like to reiterate, I have no regrets from all those who tried to harm me, planned or unplanned, designed or undersigned.
This jersey gave me new avenues, new challenges, new opportunities, new setbacks, good times, testing times and hard times. Wearing this jersey there were nights when I could not sleep and days when I could not weep. No regrets from those who were my friends and those who were not. But those who called me friends and acted otherwise gave me unbearable pains (JIGAR MEIN NISHTAR KI TARAH). The wounds out of these pains multiplied manifold when many of them came latter on to say that we could not understand you then. The damage was done by then. No complaints for those setbacks which were borne out of my follies. But those bad memories haunted me from my journey from womb to tomb when adverse definitive judgments were passed totally ignoring facts and my side of the factual stories. I weathered all these storms. More importantly, I did not allow these to hamper my performance, my passion and my zeal for the work, even for a second in my entire career. As I bid good bye to you all, trust me- this was not an easy thing to do. 
Today, as I go down the memory lane from my journey from Chinar in Kashmir to Qutub Minar at New Delhi, I know that the agony, the pain, the wounds inflicted on me could not be undone as there is no reverse gear to the life motor, but I will think that all these were worth, when in future none of my colleagues had to go through all these, what I had to face.

As I pass on the baton today, I will pray to Almighty that Doordarshan's glory is back. Honestly speaking, the situation doesn’t give me this confidence and hope. I could see the entire structure crumbling, stone by stone and brick by brick. No organization with such a huge responsibility and objective could survive for long on insulin. Life support system in no way could be replacement for naturally functioning vibrant body system. Who are being far behind the times? Programmers are supposed to be the soul of the broadcasting Eco system. But they have become an endangered species now. We need to introspect and introspect deep. We need course correction. We need surgery as mere putting bandage and having pain killers are not going to work anymore. Present leadership against all odds from within and outside has done a superb work by infusing some bottles of fresh blood into this ailing body- God bless him & those we helped him to make it happen.

Friends, my words may sound bitter and harsh to you. But I would be dishonest to this great organization which has given me so much and doing disservice to its staff, if I don't speak out truth with full honesty. For, till my last breath, I would like to see this great institution flourish with pride.

Where ever I be, will always be available to you all officially/Unofficially- Just a call/sms/text or e-mail, twitter, hand phone or landline.

Give it a try – Contact me.

WILL MISS MY ADVERSARIES MORE THAN YOU AS THEY MADE ME IRON-IN-N-OUT-GOD BLESS THEM AND YOU TOO
