Keshav Kaka, the guard, loves to listen to the programmes on this frequency. “The programmes are fresh and informative and its better than listening to old Hindi songs on repeat,” he said.

The community radio was launched in 2005 where the station air programmes cater to students. “The radio is very impactful and powerful. People can avail this facility to communicate with others in dealing with issues, finding solutions and also give a platform to showcase their skills.The radio is slowly improving its range of reaching out to many areas in Pune, by using omnidirectional anteenainstead of dipole anteena,” said Mahesh Jagtap, producer,Vidyavani,community radio from SPPU.

आकाशवाणी छतरपुर के सहायक निदेशक (कार्यक्रम) श्री हीरालाल की आत्मा की शांंति के लिए शाांति पाठ सम्पन्न !

गत 24 अक्टूबर को दिवंगत आकाशवाणी छतरपुर के सहायक निदेशक( कार्यक्रम) श्री हीरालाल की आत्मा की शांति के लिए उनके शिवाजी नगर , झांसी स्थित आवास पर 28अक्टूबर को परिजनों और आकाशवाणी स्टाफ की उपस्थिति में शांंति पाठ,हवन,भोज और श्रद्धांजलि सभा सम्पन्न हुआ । उनकी पत्नी श्रीमती रंजना, पुत्र द्वय प्रांजल और हर्षित, पुत्री अंशिका,भ्रातागण कुलदीप,डा.रामानंद के अलावे आकाशवाणी झांसी में कार्यक्रम अधिकारी के रुप में पदस्थ उनके भाई अमर सिंह भी सम्मिलित थे।ब्लॉग रिपोर्टर हतप्रभ है कि लगभग 8वर्ष उम्र में छोटे मेरे अनुज समान श्री हीरालाल (57) अब नहीं रहे। मुझे वर्ष 1982 का वह क्षण याद आ गया जब उन्होंने आकाशवाणी रीवां में नया नया पद ग्रहण किया था ।वे छुट्टी लेकर इलाहाबाद आये थे जहां मैं पदस्थ था ।उन्होंने इच्छा जाहिर की थी कि यदि इलाहाबाद स्थानातरण हो जाय तो वे कुछ काम्पिटीशन की तैयारी भी कर सकते ।मैं गोरखपुर जाने के लिए इच्छुक था ।कुछ ऐसा संयोग मेरे सामने बैठकर उन्होंने म्यूचुअल का आवेदन किया।उनकी और मेरी इच्छाओं को मंजूरी मिल गई थी ।डा.करुणा शंकर दुबे के अनुसार 09 अगस्त 1961 को श्री हीरालाल का जन्म हुआ और 1982 में वे शासकीय सेवा में आये, रीवा में प्रसारण अधिकारी बनकर ।वे जून 1991 में कार्यक्रम अधिकारी बने और वर्ष 2016 में सहायक निदेशक होकर इन दिनों छतरपुर में पदस्थ थे । मित भाषी ,मितव्ययी ,सहज - सरल स्वभाव ही उनका व्यक्तित्व था ।चाहे बनारस ,आगरा ,झांसी, इलाहाबाद या कहीं भी रहे हों ,मधुर संबंध के धनी थे । 

उनके असामयिक निधन पर मैं ही नहीं आकाशवाणी में उनसे जुड़े सारे लोग हतप्रभ हैं।ब्लॉग रिपोर्टर के मन में उनकी आत्मीय स्मृतियां अब भी जीवित हैं ।उनका आकाशवाणी रीवां में प्रसारण अधिशाषी बनना,मेरा श्री बजरंगी तिवारी की जगह आकाशवाणी गोरखपुर से आकाशवाणी इलाहाबाद जबरन स्थानांतरित किया जाना और फ़िर उसी परिदृश्य में श्री हीरालाल का संकटमोचक बनकर स्वयं इलाहाबाद केन्द्र पर आकर इलाहाबाद में मेरी जगह के विकल्प बनने पर सहमति देना एक चमत्कारिक घटनाक्रम था।आगे कुछ ही दिनों में श्री बजरंगी तिवारी गोरखपुर से वाराणसी,मैं ,इलाहाबाद से गोरखपुर और हीरालाल जी रीवां से इलाहाबाद आ गये थे।ऐसी थी उनकी सदाशयता !आकाशवाणी में सहायक निदेशक कार्यक्रम पद से सेवानिवृत्त श्री यतीन्द्र चतुर्वेदी ने उनको याद करते हुए लिखा है - "सन 1982 आकाशवाणी मथुरा से हम लोगों की मित्रता थी, भाई हीरा लाल जी से ।वे तब नये नये प्रसारण निष्पादक के पद पर आये थे बाद में सन 2002 से कुछ समय के लिए आकाशवाणी ग्वालियर पर भी कार्यक्रम अधिकारी के रूप में मेरे साथ रहे। कालांतर में 2011 में मथुरा पंहुचने पर मेरी भेंट अनेक कार्यक्रम बैठकों में होती रहती थी। संयोग वश वे और मैं पुनः मध्य प्रदेश आये तो भी कार्यक्रम बैठकों में हमारी भेंट होती रही। आकाशवाणी भोपाल में जब मेरे सेवा निवृत्त होने से पहले मेरी फेयर वेल पार्टी हुई तो उन्होंने भी मेरे लिए अपने उदगार व्यक्त किये थे। स्व. कार्यक्रम अधिकारी श्री पी एन खरे की श्री हीरा लालजी बहुत ही मदद करते थे। आकाशवाणी मथुरा के वरिष्ठ उदघोषक पंडित श्री कृष्ण शरद के अनुसार वे हिंदी के विद्वान थे तथा काव्य शास्त्र पर गहन रूप से चर्चा भी करते थे। आप समर्पित कार्यक्रम अधिकारी थे किसी भी कार्यक्रम को पुनःप्रसारण के लिए शिड्यूल करने से पहले वो उसे भली भांति सुनते थे।जहां तक मुझे याद है आप आकाशवाणी रीवां,मथुरा, आगरा, ग्वालियर झांसी, वाराणसी, इलाहाबाद, नजीबाबाद, व छतरपुर, आदि केन्द्रों पर पदस्थ रहे, फोन पर भी हमारी आप से काफी चर्चा हुआ करती थी।कुछ समय पहले ज्ञात हुआ कि वे कैंसर से पीड़ित हैं और उपचार के लिए मुम्बई गये हैं। आप का लौटने पर मेरे पास फोन भी आया बहुत ही क्षीण स्वर में बुझे बुझे से मन से मुझ से बातें भी कीं ।यथा संभव मैं हिम्मत रखने की बात करता रहा ।मुझे क्या पता था कि यह मेरी उनकी आखिरी बार बात हो रही है। ईश्वर उनकी आत्मा को शांति प्रदान करे और उनके परिवार को यह असीम दुख सहने की शक्ति प्रदान करे। वे आयु में मुझ से छोटे थे। उनके असामयिक निधन से मन दुखी है। वे मूलतः चित्रकूट बांदा के निवासी थे ।उनको विनम्र श्रद्धांजलि।"

प्रसार भारती परिवार प्रार्थना करता है की ईश्वर उनके आत्मा को शांति दे और उनके शोकाकुल परिवार को इस संकट की घडी को सामना करने की शक्ति प्रदान करे।

Inspiration - How a Tiny Naga Village Became Tobacco, Plastic and Waste Free

 Did you know about a village in Nagaland which is tobacco, plastic and waste free?
Well, the village in question is the Sishunu village, located 11 km away from the state capital of Kohima.

Today, the Ministry of Rural Development congratulated the residents of Sishunu as the village has achieved all three objectives (stated above) through funds delivered under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA).

Government officials have said that no tobacco products will be sold inside the village premises, and smoking and chewing tobacco will be banned across educational institutions, offices, community halls, bus stop, and library, among other major public structures, reports Morung Express.

To ensure that the village is following tobacco control initiatives, a Tobacco Control Committee made up of government, police, National Tobacco Control Programme (NTCP) and village officials will be put in place to ensure that it follows up while meeting once every quarter. Defaulters will be penalised as per the rules under the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act 2003.


Sishunu is the fourth village in the state to go tobacco-free.
On the subject of waste, particularly plastic, the village council has banned the dumping of any sort of garbage in public places, besides taking up waste segregation measures. Necessary action, including fines, will be taken against those violating these provisions.

Last month, the Nagaland government set a deadline for December 2018 to free the entire state of plastic waste.
In fact, in November 2015, the state government passed an order making it mandatory for all road contractors to use plastic waste along with bituminous mixes for road construction. This measure was brought forth to help overcome the growing problem of plastic waste disposal in India.

Meanwhile, under the MGNREGA programme, all 349 households in the village are now connected with footsteps. Other initiatives include the purchase of a community bus, construction of public toilets, besides the cultivation of kiwi fruits, banana, orange, pomegranate, cardamom, papaya, among other initiatives under MGNREGA.

Inspiration - Meet this Restaurant owner Shraddha Bhansali listed in 2018 ‘Forbes India 30 under 30’.

Today’s generation is not only rewriting the rules of the game but also creating new games as well. This is the time of Young and fearless achievers who are putting their mind and money in their dreams rather than any product or business. It is the same belief in their dreams which turns them into entrepreneurs. Today we have come up with a story of a successful entrepreneur who has recently been listed in ‘Forbes India 30 under 30’. She is none other than 25-year-old Shraddha Bhansali, the owner of the famous restaurant Candy and Green in Mumbai, India.

Shraddha Bhansali was born and brought up in Mumbai and belongs to a business class family with his father being a businessman. She always has a deep interest in the art of cooking and used to closely follow her mother at the time of cooking. Shraddha went to the US for further studies after completing her schooling from Mumbai. She graduated in Hospitality and Business Management from Boston University from 2010-2014. After returning to India, Shraddha started her career in a five-star hotel.

Although Shraddha was paid a good amount in the five-star hotel, she always wanted to follow her dream of starting her own business. It was her mother who serves as a role model and inspiration for her to open a restaurant of her own. Her parents supported her decision of opening a restaurant and quit her job. Shraddha at first did some research and then opened her first restaurant, Candy & Green, in Breach Candy, Mumbai in the first quarter of 2017 and was financed by her father.

The best part of her restaurant is that the ingredients used in food preparation are grown in the restaurant itself. Shraddha did not want to serve anything unhealthy to the customers so she started growing a variety of vegetables on the restaurant roof built on 400 square feet. Shraddha ensures that only seasonal vegetable and fruits are grown and used in the meals so the menu of ‘Candy and Green’ changes seasonally. It is a pure vegetarian restaurant which offers Chinese, Italian, and Thai cuisine, apart from the traditional Indian food. Shraddha’s restaurant is famous for not only its healthy stuff but also due to the proper hygiene maintained in the restaurant.

It was always about following her passion for Shraddha and as a result, she has been able to step into the world of Entrepreneurs. Shraddha Bhansali has established herself as a role model in the Food and Hospitality section to the people who are trying hard to get the best ideas for their startups. We believe her achievements will surely bring a positive mindset of eating healthy and clean. We believe Shraddha’s dream of opening a restaurant for common people where they can get clean and healthy food at a very low cost, would surely be a reality soon.

Status Of Digital Radio Broadcasting In India

Yogendra Pal
All India Radio (AIR) has adopted the international DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) standard for digital terrestrial radio transmissions in the MW and SW bands. DRM allows for multiple FM-like radio services plus associated data such as multi-lingual news articles to be carried in place of or as an extension to the former analog radio services, while maintaining the large-area service coverage of the AM band. 35 MW transmitters of AIR, of power ranging from 20 kW to 1000 kW, continue to operate in DRM – 2 of these in pure DRM and 33 in simulcast. Twenty five of these are working in pure DRM daily for one hour. Two SW transmitters are also carrying services on DRM. Two more transmitters, 100 kW each, are under trial in Delhi and these are expected to be operational in a couple of months. In June (5 and 6) AIR in Delhi has tested the newly installed 100 kW SW transmitter in DRM. The schedule was: 0400-0630 UTC (0930-1200 IST) on 9950 kHz beamed to South India (Pure DRM, Channel A – Urdu Service, Channel B FM Rainbow).In a recent tweet AIR welcomed the fact that organization has begun to appear in the media with good news about the reduction in the receiver cost apart from the portrayal of the astounding features of the technology.

Cars with built-in DRM digital radio reception
One of the welcome features of the current roll-out of DRM in India has been the early and overwhelming commitment of the car industry, which is already equipping new car models with default DRM radio sets at no extra cost. Keeping pace with the digital radio developments, the car receiver industry in India has invested lakhs of rupees in the domestic development of DRM digital radio capable receivers and chipsets. It is pleasing to see that the roll-out of DRM equipped cars is growing rapidly with each month.By the end of 2017, this number was estimated to be about 5 lakh cars, while as of the beginning of May 2018 the volume has already surpassed 8 lakh.Hyundai has built-in DRM radios in all its models except one. They launched two models in May 2018 with a built-in DRM receiver. One is called Creta and the other popular brand is i20 Active.Maruti Suzuki has also incorporated DRM receivers in six models (three of them are shown in the picture) and all their models are expected to have built-in DRM receivers by the end of December 2018.Mahindra has also installed DRM in its TUV model.
Most of the leading car manufacturers in India have either already incorporated DRM receivers in their cars or are in the process of incorporating them. The increase has been spectacular in comparison with similar digital radio rollouts in other established markets in the world. Indian listeners have already benefitted from the domestic car industry’s joint effort to provide the in-car DRM functionality as a line-fit option for new models without charging the consumers any extra cost. In comparison, other digital radio markets around the world have taken decades to reach this level of commitment by the automotive industry, which for the most part expect car buyers to pay extra if they want to enjoy digital radio.Radio consumption in India is driven by listening in cars, which explains the paramount importance of the early-on commitment of the Indian automotive industry to DRM for the ongoing success of India’s digital roll-out program.

Standalone DRM radio receivers
In the domain of standalone DRM radio receivers for consumers there has been an increased activity especially in the past 12 months.Communications Systems Inc. ( is the first radio manufacturer in India to domestically develop and produce a DRM receiver (AV-1401), an ambitious full-featured digital radio. It offers a color screen display, stereo speakers, built-in chargeable battery with 10-hour capacity on full charge, external power source connection, detachable remote control, recording and playback from an external source, and a full-fledged media player for all types of digital content. In terms of digital radio reception, it supports all the DRM-specific features including Journaline advanced text and Emergency Warning Functionality (EWF). As part of the company’s continued commitment to DRM in India, the model was recently updated and easily meets DRM’s minimum receiver requirements as recommended by the DRM Consortium. Enhancements through the newly improved model include superior sensitivity, enhanced support for EWF with provision to switch on the receiver automatically on EWF alarms, even from deep-standby, and a bigger and improved LCD screen. The upgraded unit can receive AIR DRM signals of both the transmitters in Delhi in very good quality even inside buildings. The company is in the process of supplying AIR and has received orders for export to Australia, too.

Several additional Indian companies are also in the process of designing/developing DRM receivers.
Inntot Technologies (, a young start-up enterprise in India, which has already won the CII Industrial Innovation Award 2017 and several other awards, has developed a software-based DRM receiver, which is based on a generic processor. It also meets all the specifications for the minimum receiver requirements, supporting all DRM core functionality such as Journaline advanced text and EWF. The design has been field tested in a number of cities in India. It is expected to be very cost-effective.Recently it was announced that the Software Defined Radio (SDR) startup Inntot Technologies has raised about `3.3 crore (USD 0.5 million) in its seed round from early-stage venture capital firm Unicorn India Ventures for developing DRM receiver solutions and other digital radio products. “The USP of our solution is that it runs on generic hardware thus making it an affordable solution for the OEMs. We are also exploring the mobile phone segment to use our SDR solution for radio reception,” declared Rajith Nair, cofounder, Inntot, to the Economic Times of India. The company is open to collaboration for its projects and for the manufacturing of their solutions. While the first models included solutions for DRM in AM, provision for DRM in the FM band is also planned to be incorporated in the unit soon.
GeekSynergy ( another start-up company in India, which has been given awards by the President of India and the Karnataka Government, is working on the development of a highly affordable yet full-featured DRM receiver, which is likely to be showcased by summer 2018. The company is also working on incorporating DRM into smartphones using one of the most well-known chips installed in all the branded mobile phones.
Gospell Digital Technology Co. Ltd. ( located in China has presented a very well-reviewed DRM Receiver, GR216, which is already in production. These units can receive DRM signals in the AM as well as the VHF bands for large-area and local services, respectively. Core DRM features such as Journaline advanced text and EWF – with automatic device-wake-up from deep-standby are supported. The company is likely to market their units on Amazon and also receives separate orders. The model has obtained CE certification for international distribution including to Europe. In addition, Gospell is developing a DRM receiver dongle, GR-227, which can be plugged in the existing audio systems in the automobiles on USB ports or Aux input to receive DRM signals. This was highlighted in his tweet feed even by the AIR CEO in June 2018. The receiver model will allow legacy cars already on the road and with analog AM and FM reception to be upgraded to DRM digital reception through this simple add-on device. The unit is likely to go into production shortly.
Titus SDR (, a Panamanian-based company, has developed a multi-standard and software-based digital radio receiver, supporting DRM in all bands (LW, MW, SW, VHF bands I, II, III), FM analog including RDS and AM analog including AMSS. The full feature set of DRM functionality is supported by this device, including Journaline advanced text with full Unicode multi-script support, slideshow images, EWF, transparent file transmissions (e.g., for educational services, when combined with the power of the full integrated Android based tablet), EPG/SPI, and service logo download. In addition, the model features a wi-fi hotspot feature, which allows all wi-fi enabled mobile devices to connect to the Titus and receive all the DRM services including audio streaming and Journaline using their standard web browser. The Titus receiver was showcased at the IBC Exhibition in Amsterdam, at HFCC meetings, and at the recent DRM General Assembly 2018 in Palma de Mallorca. The company is offering an innovative OEM model for production in interested markets using local expertise and manpower – another excellent open solution ideal for joint ventures.

AIR in phase-II of the DRM roll-out
A lot has been achieved in India recently and the stage is well set for rolling out fully-fledged digital broadcast services on the terrestrial network in India. AIR has the opportunity now to explore the full potential of DRM digital broadcasts so that radio listeners see the benefits of acquiring and using digital radio desktop receivers and cars with line-fit DRM radios. So far, the national DRM roll-out project by AIR was focusing on establishing the transmitter network all over the country (which was successfully concluded). It is the time now to concentrate on optimizing the DRM coverage and service quality, while also finalizing the content offerings with additional audio services and the innovative advanced DRM features such as Journaline advanced text. Those enhanced DRM services with greatly improved coverage and audio quality along with Journaline and service logo transmissions have already been placed on-air in Delhi and Bangalore and are scheduled to be on-air within the next weeks in Pune and Chennai. Step-by-step the remaining DRM transmissions all over the country will then may be upgraded to the full DRM experience. AIR in Bangalore has added on its website ( a dedicated section called Listen Live. DRM features there prominently under the heading: DRM Digital Radio Bengaluru. Both best known AIR programs, Vividh Bharati and AIR Gold FM, can be accessed and listened to. In addition, Journaline advanced text is also accessible on that site. The AIR Bengaluru site can be accessed easily on any type of device, including smartphones.Here is an example of the AIR Bengaluru on-air monitoring service, with current DRM programs and the AIR Journaline Service text content (including latest AIR news on various topics, EPG program information and schedule, DRM updates, and AIR contact and background information).This ongoing activity by AIR to upgrade their service offerings to the full DRM experience should be on the agenda and closely accompanied by the interested stakeholders who meet regularly. At their latest meeting at the end of May several ideas and suggestions were made or reiterated for making AIR a digital radio pioneer like:
1)Provide popular programs in excellent digital audio quality
2)Provide innovative and relevant multi-lingual text services through Journaline
3)Provide traffic information, EWF, logo transmissions, etc.
Take private FM broadcasters on board on AIR’s DRM national network in the MW band and provide them with either time slots or with one exclusive channel (out of the up to three channels are now available in pure DRM from one transmitter). Since AIR DRM transmitters can cover an area of over 60 percent of the country when operated in pure DRM, listeners in these areas would be able to receive programs of private broadcasters too, which so far have not been available on FM with its limited coverage area. Listeners in these areas would therefore be motivated to buy DRM receivers. This would create a quick popularity of DRM services, as seen in the case of the introduction of FM India. All this needs an extensive public awareness campaign including demonstrations of digital services in community centers, railway stations, airports, and other public places
Programs on the DRM digital radio platform are already bringing new content to many areas in India, in which they could previously not be received over any radio platform (neither AM nor FM). AIR should identify these areas and start a public awareness campaign in these specific areas
AIR should start DRM digital services on the two 100 kW SW transmitters under installation/testing in Delhi. One was tested recently proving the commitment of AIR to fulfill the assurance made by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to the Indian Parliament and mentioned in the report of the ministry for 2017 under Major Achievement of the Ministry that two new shortwave solid-state digital transmitters of 100 kW to broadcast to the border for Afghanistan–Pakistan region
As already mentioned, stakeholders are encouraging the government to consider giving incentives to the private broadcasters to start DRM services and to the domestic DRM receiver manufacturers so that standalone DRM receivers are available in ever increasing numbers at affordable prices
As the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has already made its recommendation on the digitization of the VHF band II (FM), the major Indian stakeholders are expecting the government to frame a policy for digitization of the VHF band and announce it urgently so that there is no uncertainty or confusion among major stakeholders and that the full ecosystem for digital broadcasts can continue to be developed smoothly.
With so much progress having been made in India, there is increasing pressure for the implementation by AIR of all the DRM features, and for the public announcement of a clear roadmap for introducing all the digital radio services (coverage and features) in India; the official public announcement is needed by all the broadcasters, the radio receiver industry, as well as by listeners

Inspiration - Meet the 10-Year-Old Child Prodigy Who Turned down a Job Offer from Google!

At an age where most of us were lost in cartoons, Samaira Mehta is taking Silicon Valley by storm! The 10-year-old is a skilled programmer and has become somewhat of an icon for aspiring coders.

Samaira has developed Coder Bunnyz- a coding board game that teaches children all the concepts necessary in computer programming. She has already attended events by technology giants like Google and Microsoft as a keynote speaker!

Speaking to Medium, the coding prodigy says, “I always loved board games, and I always loved computer programming, but I didn’t like the fact that I had to do both of them separately, so I thought if I can’t bring board game onto a computer coding screen, so why not bring the computer coding to a board game. And that’s when I got the idea to create a coding board game, and that’s what I’m doing today.”

However, it wasn’t just developing an enjoyable board game that made her the talk of Silicon Valley.
Samaira’s father, Rakesh, who is an engineer at Intel and Sun Microsystems/Oracle, had a strategic business plan in mind for Coder Bunnyz.
It started with young Samaira testing the game with her friends so they could point errors and share feedback. Accordingly, Samaira refined Coder Bunnyz to perfection.

The duo didn’t stop at that. They arranged for coding workshops for kid coders which Samaira conducted. They also established a company to launch the game.
An open offer from Google is a dream come true for most. But Samaira replied  saying that she’s happy being an entrepreneur and didn’t know if she wanted to join Google!

Inspiration - इनसे मिलिए, ये हैं बॉडीगार्ड वीना गुप्ता.

TEDx ईवेंट में वीना गुप्ता बताती है। ...... Imagine you're walking and sitting in a car alongside is a bodyguard...  a female bodyguard. Yes, I'm Vina Gupta, I'm your bodyguard I'm here to protect you isn't in an imagination soft looking woman soft-spoken wearing sari how can she protect me that's true this is my journey which was shaped because of society because of colleague, my competitor of course the family . I have faced many challenges in following my passion my dream because I was a rare case being a woman into male-dominated business profession .
47 साल की वीना गुप्ता पेशे से एक बॉडीगार्ड हैं और महिलाओं को सेल्फ डिफेंस की ट्रेनिंग भी देती हैं। महिलाओं को आत्मनिर्भर बनाने के लिए उन्होंने एक ऐप भी बनाई है। 
वह दूसरी महिलाओं को फ्री कोचिंग समेत अन्य सुविधाएं भी मुहैया कराती हैं। वीना के इस कदम के पीछे उनकी बेटी सबसे बड़ी वजह हैं।
वीना ने बॉडीगार्ड बनने का फैसला तब लिया जब वह खुद ईव टीचिंग का शिकार हुईं। 2007 में वह अपनी बेटी और फ्रेंड के साथ मार्केट में थीं। इस दौरान कुछ लड़के उन्हें परेशान करने लगे। इस घटना से वह काफी डर गईं। सवाल न सिर्फ उनकी सुरक्षा का था, बल्कि बेटी की सेफ्टी का भी था। उन्होंने फैसला किया कि वह इस डर से उबरेंगी और सेल्फ डिफेंस की ट्रेनिंग लेंगी। इसके बाद वह बॉडीगार्ड बन गईं।

सेक्टर 56 में रहने वाली वीना गुप्ता बचपन से ही दबंग रही हैं। उन्हें इस काम को करने में किसी तरह का हिचकिचाहट नहीं हुई। घरवालों ने भी उन्हें पूरा सपोर्ट किया। पहले वो छोटे स्तर पर ही यह काम करती थीं, लेकिन अब उनका यूएस बेस्ड अमेरिकन बॉडीगार्ड कंपनी से टायअप है। इसके माध्यम से वह विदेश में भी अपनी सर्विस दे रही हैं। कॅनडाअमेरिका समेत वे कई देशों में जा चुकी हैं। साथ ही कोई विदेशी इंडिया आता है, तो कंपनी के माध्यम से एनआरआई को भी वह बॉडीगार्ड की सर्विस देती हैं।

वीना डब्ल्यूईएसएस यानी वुमन एम्पावरर्मेंट सिक्यॉरिटी एंड सेफ्टी नाम का एनजीओ चलाती हैं। इसके माध्यम से वे महिलाओं को फ्री में सेल्फ डिफेंस की ट्रेनिंग दे रही हैं। हर शनिवार को वीना 3 घंटे सेक्टर-57 में महिलाओं को ट्रेनिंग देती हैं। साथ बॉडीगार्ड बनने के लिए कई महिलाओं को फुल ट्रेनिंग दे चुकी हैं। पहला बैच वह मुंबई में तैयार कर चुकी हैं। इसके बाद अब दिल्ली-एनसीआर के ग्रुप को तैयार करने लिए शेड्यूल तैयार कर रही हैं।

वीना बताती हैं कि ऐसी महिलाएं बहुत कम होती हैं जो इस प्रोफेशन में आती हैं। इसके लिए सबसे ज्यादा जरूरी होता है घर वालों का सपोर्ट। अगर परिवार के लोग लड़कों की तरह लड़कियों को भी पूरा सपोर्ट करें तो विमिन सेफ्टी का मुद्दा ही खत्म हो जाएगा और इस पुरुष प्रधान समाज को महिला प्रधान समाज बनने में देर नहीं लगेगी। बचपन से ही लड़का और लड़की में घर वाले फर्क न करें तो यह मुद्दा कभी निकल कर ही नहीं आएगा।
