AIR Kohima celebrates advent Christmas

AIR Kohima was the first radio station to broadcast Christmas messages and dramas in the country, a former official informed today. The programmes were first broadcasted in English and gradually in the dialect bulletins and got feedbacks from places as far as Finland, the official added. The former Station Director and retired Deputy Director General of AIR and DDK, Northeast, V Sekhose disclosed this while addressing the advent Christmas celebration of All India Radio (AIR) Kohima at its studio complex on December 8. She also reminded the Staff of AIR Kohima that the greatest objective of the establishment is to give public quality service broadcast. Maintaining that AIR and DDK are the most popular media among the electronic media owing to its credibility and authenticity, the former Station Director said that the two broadcasters were among the first media institutions in the region to provide information to the people, which they relied on even today.

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi has popularized radio more through the Mann Ki Baat programme, in which the Prime Minister reached out to the people, she added. She also called on the employees of AIR to continue to work with dedication, truth and sincerity for the service of the people. Meanwhile, sharing about the real meaning of Christmas with the gathering, Sekhose said that Christmas is not just a mere festival like any others, but a festival of love and peace. The celebration with rites and rituals without Christ are all empty, she maintained calling upon everyone to put back “Christ first in the Christmas.” Also speaking on the occasion, Director Engineer, K.K Rangma said the current year has been a busy and challenging one, with repeat transformation of the entire establishment to a digital platform. Other highlights of the programme included various Christmas song presentation by the different sections of the Station, stated a press note from AIR.
