  1. Shri Ashok Kumar Mishra Agnya. You may not remember me but I, Tholeti chandra Shekhar was a Lower Division Clerk at AIR, Jeypore (Odisha) at the time of your joining this prestigious institute All India Radio in 1983. I have been in constant touch with you indirectly through our mutual friends who visited my working station i.e. Visakhapatnam. It goes without saying that I am an ardent admirer of you since you were a casual announcer there. I admired your many talents and your mannerisms, which I still. I am very proud to see the blog praise you to the sky and still feel it is not sufficiently justified for your excellence. A harvest of 26 Akashvani Annual Awards and 3 International Awards is not a small thing which can be told in words. I doubt whether it is a sort of record in the annals of All India Radio's history. My pleasure increased when I read on 30.03.2017 that AIR, Jeypore (Odisha) has own first prize in the category of best children's programme which had your presence. That too on a day before you are to retire. What a gift you gave to this institute and in return the institute gave to you. I am also surprised that you attained superannuation so early, though I too retired on superannuation on 29.02.2017. I pray Maa Jagat Janani of Jeypore (Odisha) to shower her best blessings on you and your family and also that you should without taking any rest do your best in producing more best programmes with best of your efforts, I presume which are still in a nascent and tender stage or age.
