AIR, Sambalpur bagged two Akashvani Annual Awards-2016

AIR, Sambalpur bagged two second prizes in the Akashvani Annual Awards-2016 for its entries 'Rambair Katha' under Womens Programme category and 'Nua Sakhal' under Farm & Home category. The programmes were authored by Shri Ratan Kumar Pujari and Shri Ganesh Ram Seth respectively. Both the programmes were produced by Shri Randeep Kumar Pradhan, Programme Executive assisted by Laxman Kumar Panda, Santosh Ping, Programmes Executives and Shri Satyaranjan Panda, Technician whereas music was scored by Shri Bijay Kumar Behera and Shri Prafulla Kumar Mitra respectively.

Gist of the programme 'Ram Bair Katha': For a change, this is the true story of the indomitable spirit and fighting quality seen in a woman to whom everybody should doff his or her hat and applaud. Even the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India felicitated her and mentioned about her in his “Mann Ki Baat”. Born in a typical village with all the associated bottlenecks and obsolete customs and mindset, she had a normal childhood, except that though her friends were reading in the village school, she was deprived of that as her father could not afford it. On attaining puberty she was married off. But the fact that she gave birth to a daughter was not acceptable to her family and she was sent to her parental home. Though later she was brought back, after the birth of her second daughter the old story repeated with much hostility and she was kind of driven away. After few months she got the news of her husband’s death. Any lesser mortal would have given up but she was made of sterner stuff. It is not easy for a young widow to rear two growing girls. Then she decided to take up cultivation in a big way and her mother stood by her as a pillar of rock. She used to sell vegetables herself in a bicycle in the local markets. Gradually, she ploughed the profits earned into acquiring more land and appointed more hands in her endeavour.  In course of time she acquired a cult status and the male dominated society grudgingly admired the guts and gumption and steely will shown by Rambai.She proved that women are not weak but are made of sterner stuff. She would not suffer injustice blindly or take it lying down. She possesses the capability to change the society. She should only be given a scope for her innate strength to blossom through education.

Gist of the programme 'Nua Sakhal' :The programme “Nuan Sakhal” is about a typical village of western Odisha. Here, agriculture is totally dependent on a good monsoon. If by chance, rainfall is inadequate, the sufferings of small and marginal farmers multiplies manifold. Not only the people suffer, so also the domestic animals as fodder is hard to come by. Highly erratic rainfall due to environmental degradation causes untold hardship.  To compound matters, middle-men, employed by rich businessmen of neighbouring state lure unsuspecting poor farmers into a debt trap. They advance large sums of money to them by getting a bond signed which stipulates that they will repay the debt by working as bonded labourers in the brick kilns or in other hazardous activities. They are forced to migrate to the neighbouring states by the middle-men and their henchmen. They and their family members are exploited. When Saibani and Gulthu are at their wits end thinking how to cope with the impending disaster, they are shown the way by the official from agricultural department. He counselled them about soil testing, organic farming and use of vermi-compost. They were also briefed about the easy and simplified norms of agricultural credit at door step to Jan-Dhan account holders by the B.C.Agent (Business Correspondent Agent). Also they are told that henceforth the wages of MGNREGA work will be directly credited to their Jan-Dhan accounts and will not be pilfered by the contractors. Since at least one hundred days’ employment is guaranteed, they need not migrate as bonded labourers. This has put a new lease of life into them and kindled new hope.

डॉ.सुप्रिया भारतीयन, प्रोगाम एक्सक्यूटिव, आकाशवाणी बिलासपुर ने किया एक दिवसीय वाइस कल्चर कार्यशाला में मार्गदर्शन

हर आवाज की अपनी एक पहचान होती है। अपनी आवाज का पिच जानना बेहद जरूरी है, किसी की कॉपी नहीं करनी चाहिए। आवाज की गुणवक्ता, वोकल ताकत, मॉड्यूलन टेक्निक्सेस, सही पिच सिंगिंग, श्वास व्यायाम जैसी बातें वाइस क्लचर के अंतर्गत आती है। वाइस कल्चर को समझना बहुत आवश्यक है। यह बातें रविवार को वाइस कल्चर की एक दिवसीय वर्कशॉप में डॉ.सुप्रिया भारतीयन ने लोगों से प्रियदर्शनी कला मंदिर में कहीं।
अग्रज नाट्य दल की ओर से एक दिवसीय वाइस कल्चर कार्यशाला का आयोजन इंदिरा विहार स्थित प्रियदर्शनी कला मंदिर में किया गया। कार्यक्रम में आकाशवाणी की प्रोगाम एक्सक्यूटिव डॉ.सुप्रिया भारतीयन ने वाइस क्लचर के विषय में लोगों को जानकारी दी। उन्होंने कहा कि वाइस मॉड्यूलेशन से व्यक्ति की इंद्रिया प्रभावित होती हैं। सही तरह से बात करने से शरीर भी रिलेक्स महसूस करता है। अग्रज नाट्य दल की सदस्य संज्ञा टंडन ने कहा कि कार्यक्रम का उद्देश्य वाइस कल्चर के विषय में लोगों को बताना है। पहली बार शहर में इतना भव्य आयोजन वाइस कल्चर पर हो रहा है। इसमें अंबिकापुर, मनेंद्रगढ़, पाली, बैकुंठपुर, रायगढ़ जैसे शहरों से उद्घोषक, सिंगर, थिएटर आर्टिस्ट सहित युवा पहुंचे हैं। सभी ने वाइस कल्चर के माध्यम से आवाज पर कैसे कंट्रोल किया जाए और कब, कैसी आवाज निकाली जाए, इसका गुर सीखा।
कराया गया अभ्यास- कार्यशाला के दौरान वाइस कल्चर में बात करते समय सही समय पर सांस लेना और छोडऩा चाहिए। सांस लेते समय पेट अंदर होना सही ठंग है। आवाज निकालना पूरे शरीर का काम है। योग को हर दिन में शामिल करने की बात कहीं गई। इस सब बातों का अभ्यास कराया गया।
वाइस कल्चर में पीएचडी-डॉक्टर सुप्रिया भारतीयन आकाशवाणी बिलासपुर में प्रोग्राम एक्सक्यूटिव हैं। उन्होंने वाइस कल्चर पर पीएचडी की है। साइंस की स्टूडेंट रही हैं। इस वजह से वाइस कल्चर को बहुत अच्छे से समझा है। वाइस कंट्रोल के माध्यम से वाइस कल्चर की सही जानकारी दी। अपनी आवाज में मधुरता लाने के लिए सही तरीके सिखाए, साथ ही समय के मुताबिक कब और कहा कितना बोलना इस पर लगभग 4 घंटे तक जानकारी दी।इस अवसर पर सुनिल चिपड़े, योगेश, अनिल, सुनिल, श्वेता पांडे, चंपा, एेश्वर्यलक्ष्मी बाजपेयी सहित बड़ी संख्या में शहर के नागरिक उपस्थित थे।

इश्क रीमीक्स - आज के जमाने में सच्चा प्यार पैसों के आगे छोटा हो जाता है। पैसों की वजह से ही इंसान प्यार की कद्र करना भूल गया। ये विषय था प्ले इश्क रीमीक्स का। यह नाटक दविंदर सिंह ने लिखा है। इसमें 21वीं सदी के प्यार को दिखाया। किस तरह आज के जमाने के हीर रांझा और मिर्जा साहिब का प्यार बदल गया है। हीर और रांझा का आपस में चैटिंग के दौरान प्यार हो जाता है, लेकिन जब रांझा कैनेडा से इंडिया आता है तो उसे पता चलता है उससे हीर नहीं बल्कि साहिबा चैटिंग करती थी। उसे साहिबा से प्यार हो जाता है, लेकिन साहिबा को मिर्जा से प्यार है। पर रांझे को अमीर देखकर वह मिर्जा को अंत में गोली मार देती है। इसमें भरत कुमार, प्रीत सिंह, सैंडी, राजबीर चीमा, अनिता देवगन ने किरदार निभाए।
