Plight of migrants to find voice on All India Radio

UNESCO will air series of radio programmes to evoke sympathy amongst urban dwellers towards migrants, starting tomorrow on the International Labour Day. "Khanabadhoshon Ki Duniya" (A World of Migrants) is a series of 10 radio programmes -- 3-4 minutes each -- produced by UNESCO featuring several real-life situations involving migrants and the challenges they face in accessing their rights and entitlements. The first radio programme will be aired tomorrow on three channels of All India Radio -- FM Gold, FM Rainbow and MW Indraprastha. The complete series will be broadcast over a period of 4 weeks, on weekdays, twice a day, from May 1 till May 26.

The radio programmes will highlight unique characteristics of migrants in the cities, like their work as agents of development, upholders of cultural diversity, contributors to skill diversity, symbols of new aspirations and migrant working woman. "The approach adopted is to evoke empathy amongst urban dwellers by focusing on similarities between migrants from rural areas and residents from urban areas," UNESCO said in a release. The series will focus on sharing the experience and contributions of migrants to the cities they migrate to and thereby disrupt the homogeneous image, it added. "We wish to draw attention to the brave choices migrants make and encourage city dwellers to ensure that migrants feel part of a city which is welcoming, inclusive and recognises migrants entitlement to a dignified life," said Marina Faetanini, the section's chief and programme specialist, social and human sciences, UNESCO (New Delhi).
