International Award for AIR Radio Documentary by Rakesh Dhondiyal
……and here comes an International Award
This is your friend Rakesh calling from cloud nine…..my documentary ‘keep Coming Nanu Thangu ‘has been declared as the best programme on climate change by Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union. The award was declared in the 3rdABU Media Summit on Climate Change held in Dhaka.It carries a trophy and a cash prize of $1000. The Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) is an association of broadcasting organizations with 280 members in 57 countries and reaches a potential audience of about 3 billion people. The awarded documentary is an endeavor to throw light on prevalent Indian traditions that are close to nature. Hundreds of examples exist in our folk and tribal life that reveals profound understanding towards our environment. It is extremely important to dust off these rich traditions, integrate them into our present lifestyle and incorporate them in the strategy being adopted to tackle water crisis, stemming from climate change. Kudos respected Dr Arvind Kumar Soni ji and Rajesh Bhat ji you are more than a colleague… gem of a person. Thanx Abhay Phagre ji for composing such a beautiful song. Thanks dearest Padam Bhandari …you are one of the best Hindi voices in country.
