Nostalgic Memories of serving at AIR - Mallika Banerjee
Namaskar! I joined as a Pex directly recruited through UPSC in 1988. Prior to this I was a regular visitor to AIR Delhi since my childhood and I never dreamt of a job in AIR. I remember as a child I accompanied my mother for her broadcasts in All India Radio. She won first prize in AIR music competition and started broadcasting since 1962. I vividly remember a day when I accompanied her I was mesmerised by the patterns on the floor of the gallery in front of room number 37. I was playfully stepping one foot on each square and followed my mother to a room which is now the museum in the Broadcasting House. At that time it was the duty room. I saw one auntie entered the room with lots of spools in her hand and accidentally one spool slipped and fell from her hand due to which the tape ran out of the spool . This amazed me a lot. Who knew at that time that I will become a part of this amazing world one day!
