It was a great moment for Shri Dilip Chauhan's after Prime Minister Narendra Modi referred him during his fortnightly Radio and Doordarshan programme 'Mann Ki Baat' aired on 27th December, 2015. Shri Chauhan is a Teacher (PGT) and teaching English at Kendriya Vidyalaya, Shahibaug, Ahmedabad since 2010.


Shri Chauhan was invited to Doordarshan Kendra, Ahmedabad to share his experience. Shri Chauhan was surprised when Shri Surya Prakash, Chairman, Prasar Bharti welcomed him at DDK, Ahmedabad. During his interaction with Shri Surya Prakash, Shri Chauhan told that PM Modi mentioned his name in connection with the programme conducted by him on 3rd December, 2015 on the eve of World Disability Day to spread awareness among students that the disabled people too can live a normal life without depending on anyone and how they are at the receiving end of undue discrimination. He shared his efforts with Hon’ble Prime Minister by sending a Voice Mail. With great joy and satisfaction he expressed that it is a proud moment for him that his efforts and contribution towards betterment of disabled are acknowledged by the Prime Minister on such a big platform.


In his reply to a question asked by Shri Surya Prakash, Shri Dilip Chauhan informed that he completed his schooling from Blind School, Navrangpura, Ahmedabad and went to L D Arts College for his Master's degree.

He also informed that he is regular viewer of “DD NEWS” as it has provided him the information required to face the “Competitive Exams”. He also suggested to the students preparing for Competitive exams that “DD NEWS” is the only channel which covers NEWS on all the topics in different programmes and segments and its becomes very easy to get all the information on a single platform.

Talking about the "Accessible India" campaign that PM talked about, Chauhan said the idea behind the campaign is to enable disabled people to get equal opportunities, live independently and participate fully in all the aspects of life in an inclusive society. On a question about his future plans, he said that he would like to continue as a teacher and will continue helping the disabled to access technology like normal people."

5. Designed software and hardware to detect failure of Earth Station signal using throw away equipment for which ‘Ganesan Award’ was conferred to the Station in BES Expo 2013.

6. Redesigning of old Darbari dimmer circuit .

7. Currently the Station is designing a digital hybrid switcher circuit. If the project is completed, the switcher can replace some of the old analog patch panels and provide equivalent operational ease of a router

These inventions will perhaps make public broadcasting more affordable for this department and beyond.

प्रधानमंत्री ने आज "मन की बात" कार्यक्रम में मध्यप्रदेश के सीहोर जिले के भोजपुरा गाँव के बुजुर्ग कारीगर दिलीप सिंह मालवीया के स्वमेव प्रयासों को तहे दिल से सराहा।समग्र स्वच्छता अभियान में स्वैच्छिक सहयोग करते हुए इस ग्रामीण मिस्त्री ने बिना एक ₹ की मजदूरी लिए एक सौ से अधिक शौचालयों के निर्माण में अपने कौशल की ईंट के साथ राष्ट्र निर्माण में जन सहयोग का मजबूत पलस्तर भी जोड़ा है।दिलीप सिंह मालवीया का जज़्बा कायम है।शौचालय हेतु निर्माण सामग्री उपलब्ध कराये जाने पर वे अपनी मज़दूरी न लेने के संकल्प पर अडिग हैं।आज पीएम के मन की बात कार्यक्रम के जरिए सुर्ख़ियों में छा जाने वाले दिलीप सिंह मालवीया को हमें केवल सीहोर जिले के एक ग्रामीण के बतौर नहीं बल्कि समूचे मध्यप्रदेश के ग्रामीण क्षेत्रों की अनुगूंज के रूप में लेने की ललक है। 

"मन की बात" कार्यक्रम में प्रधानमंत्री द्वारा दिलीपसिंह मालवीया का ज़िक्र होते ही हमारे सीहोर संवाददाता प्रदीप चौहान भोजपुरा के लिए रवाना हो गए।इधर डीडी न्यूज़ के भोपाल ब्यूरो की टीम ने आज राजधानी के न्यू मार्केट में समता चौक से "मन की बात" पर त्वरित जन प्रतिक्रिया हासिल की।संवाददाता अजीत द्विवेदी व कैमरामैन शिशिर दीक्षित को लाइव कवरेज के लिए तकनीकी सहयोग क्रू मेंबर्स ने उपलब्ध कराया।सबको धन्यवाद।

RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan at DDK Mumbai


MEN, MATTERS AND MEMORIES...
Tea, though ridiculed by those who are naturally coarse in their nervous sensibilities will always be the favorite beverage of the intellectual.
All true tea lovers not only like their tea strong, but like it a little stronger with each year that passes.

This is the 3rd year when the RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan came for the RBI Quiz at DDK Mumbai as well as for the Hot cup of Strong Tea..

Text of Hon'ble PM's Man Ki Baat on Akashvani on 27.12.2015



२७ दिसंबर २०१५ को माननीय प्रधान मंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी ने आकाशवाणी  से की  मन की बात : शब्दोमे

मेरे प्यारे देशवासियो, आप सबको नमस्कार। 2015 – एक प्रकार से मेरी इस वर्ष की आख़िरी ‘मन की बात’। अगले ‘मन की बात’ 2016 में होगी। अभी-अभी हम लोगों ने क्रिसमस का पर्व मनाया और अब नये वर्ष के स्वागत की तैयारियाँ चल रही हैं। भारत विविधताओं से भरा हुआ है। त्योहारों की भी भरमार लगी रहती है। एक त्योहार गया नहीं कि दूसरा आया नहीं। एक प्रकार से हर त्योहार दूसरे त्योहार की प्रतीक्षा को छोड़कर चला जाता है। कभी-कभी तो लगता है कि भारत एक ऐसा देश है, जहाँ पर ‘त्योहार Driven Economy’ भी है। समाज के ग़रीब तबक़े के लोगों की आर्थिक गतिविधि का वो कारण बन जाता है। मेरी तरफ़ से सभी देशवासियों को क्रिसमस की भी बहुत-बहुत शुभकामनायें और 2016 के नववर्ष की भी बहुत-बहुत शुभकामनायें। 2016 का वर्ष आप सभी के लिए ढेरों खुशियाँ ले करके आये। नया उमंग, नया उत्साह, नया संकल्प आपको नयी ऊंचाइयों पर पहुंचाए। दुनिया भी संकटों से मुक्त हो, चाहे आतंकवाद हो, चाहे ग्लोबल वार्मिंग हो, चाहे प्राकृतिक आपदायें हों, चाहे मानव सृजित संकट हो। मानव जाति सुखचैन की ज़िंदगी पाये, इससे बढ़कर के खुशी क्या हो सकती है|

आप तो जानते ही हैं कि मैं Technology का भरपूर प्रयोग करता रहता हूँ उससे मुझे बहुत सारी जानकारियाँ भी मिलती हैं। ‘MyGov.’ मेरे इस portal पर मैं काफी नज़र रखता हूँ।......................
......................................
............ जब इस वर्ष हम बाबा साहेब अम्बेडकर की 125वी जयंती मना रहे हैं तो क्या हम 26 जनवरी को निमित्त बना करके स्कूलों में, colleges में, अपने गांवों में, अपने शहर में, भिन्न-भिन्न societies में, संगठनों में – ‘कर्तव्य’ इसी विषय पर निबंध स्पर्द्धा, काव्य स्पर्द्धा, वक्तृत्व स्पर्द्धा ये कर सकते हैं क्या? अगर सवा सौ करोड़ देशवासी कर्तव्य भाव से एक के बाद एक कदम उठाते चले जाएँ तो कितना बड़ा इतिहास बन सकता हैI लेकिन चर्चा से शुरू तो करेंI मेरे मन में एक विचार आता है, अगर आप मुझे 26 जनवरी के पहले ड्यूटी, कर्तव्य – अपनी भाषा में, अपनी भाषा के उपरांत अगर आपको हिंदी में लिखना है तो हिंदी में, अंग्रेज़ी में लिखना है तो अंग्रेज़ी में कर्तव्य पर काव्य रचनाएँ हो, कर्तव्य पर एसे राइटिंग हो, निबंध लिखें आपI मुझे भेज सकते हैं क्या? मैं आपके विचारों को जानना चाहता हूँI ‘My Gov.’ मेरे इस पोर्टल पर भेजिएI मैं ज़रूर चाहूँगा कि मेरे देश की युवा पीढ़ी कर्तव्य के संबंध में क्या सोचती हैI

एक छोटा सा सुझाव देने का मन करता है। 26 जनवरी जब हम गणतंत्र दिवस मनाते हैं, क्या हम नागरिकों के द्वारा, स्कूल-कॉलेज के बालकों के द्वारा हमारे शहर में जितनी भी महापुरुषों की प्रतिमायें हैं, statue लगे हैं, उसकी सफाई, उस परिसर की सफाई, उत्तम से उत्तम स्वच्छता, उत्तम से उत्तम सुशोभन 26 जनवरी निमित्त कर सकते हैं क्या? और ये मैं सरकारी राह पर नहीं कह रहा हूँI नागरिकों के द्वारा, जिन महापुरुषों का statue लगाने के लिए हम इतने emotional होते हैं लेकिन बाद में उसको संभालने में हम उतने ही उदासीन होते हैं| समाज के नाते, देश के नाते, क्या ये हम अपना सहज़ स्वभाव बना सकते हैं क्या, इस 26 जनवरी को हम सब मिल के प्रयास करें कि ऐसे महापुरुषों की प्रतिमाओं का सम्मान, वहाँ सफाई, परिसर की सफाई और ये सब जनता-जनार्दन द्वारा, नागरिकों द्वारा सहज रूप से होI

प्यारे देशवासियो, फिर एक बार नव वर्ष की, 2016 की ढेर सारी शुभकामनायेंI बहुत-बहुत धन्यवाद।

Inspiration : How a Farmer’s Son is Helping Over 170 Children in Rural Maharashtra...



“The life of a farmer is very tough. With no other revenue source, he has to totally depend upon the year’s crop. And if it happens to fail, an entire year is lost,” says Shyam Wadhekar, a farmer’s son who comes from a very humble background.

The education of the farmer’s children is often the first casualty of a failed crop. But Shyam and his siblings were lucky because despite his financial condition, their father was keen on educating his children. With his support, Shyam managed to become an engineer, his sister a doctor, and his younger brother is currently pursuing engineering.......
This farmer’s son had seen many kids in drought-prone Maharashtra villages drop out of school due to financial constraints. So he set up Kartavya, an organization that is helping students who would otherwise have quit school as early as Class 5, to continue with their education.  ...
