Seminar held on ‘Family-based agriculture’


Marking Radio Kisan Day, Prasara Bharati, Akashvani and others had jointly organised a seminar on ‘Family-based agriculture’ at the premises of Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL) recently. Speaking on the occasion, Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) Director Dr. Chandregowda opined that the concept of family-based agriculture was going extinct owing to the migration of the youth from rural to urban areas. In the early days, three to four generations of a family used to be involved in agriculture which was also contributing to good rearing of livestock and processing of organic manure.

The weekly shandy in villages was the usual place to market the agricultural produce. The need for preservation of ground water has become vital. To earn more with less inputs, farmers are resorting to cash crops using chemical fertilizers which is a dangerous trend, opined Dr. Chandregowda. The programme was inaugurated by progressive farmer couple from Indi taluk in Vijayapura district Rajashekar Revanna Siddappa Nimbaragi and Renuka by watering a sapling. Addressing the gathering, Rajashekar said that he passed SSLC securing 13th rank in 1974 and took up agriculture.

He recalled that he was using chemical fertilisers to get more yield but faced other problems before advised by an Agricultural Officer to attend an agricultural workshop where he was introduced to organic farming which he has been advocating now and getting good yield. A two-minute silence was observed to pay respects to soldiers killed recently in the terror attack in Kashmir. Families of farmers participated in the seminar and shared their experiences. Akashvani Assistant Director H. Srinivas, Engineering section Director Sunil Bhatia and other were present.

Inspiration - No Plastic, No Paper, All-Organic Millet Feasts: Pondy Couple Sets #WeddingGoals!





Many of us are familiar with the concept of a big fat Indian wedding.They comprise loud music, extravagant decor, lavish meals, and expensive attires, all of which serve to depict the prosperity of the families coming together.While on one hand, this trend continues to exist, there is another fast-growing group of couples who have begun to see through the shiny veil.For them, it is not about how big a wedding is, but how unusual and meaningful it can be.Keeping this in mind, a couple in Puducherry decided to set the wheels in reverse, and return to their roots.


A simple ceremony with a lasting impact is what this couple had in mind, so they decided to go green and ensure that their wedding in January 2019 would be completely eco-friendly.

“Food is one of the most important parts of a wedding. Keeping the menu traditional, they experimented with healthier alternatives like healthy rice varieties, and millets.

To eliminate the use of plastic and paper, the food and drinks were served in plates made of leaves and ever silver (stainless steel) tumblers, respectively. Even for invitations, the minimal use of paper was promoted.

“We introduced e-invites for friends, and minimal paper invites for the elders, which explained the nature of the wedding. The couple’s wedding invitation also encouraged guests to donate for a more significant cause, instead of giving them gifts.

“We solicit your presence more than your present (gifts). We would urge you to donate for a cause to ForestFirstSamithi.org for planting trees in the Western Ghats which is the source of rivers for South India on our behalf,” the invitation stated.

This couple set a truly positive precedent by marrying for their family, themselves, and the environment, making it a memorable experience.

आकाशवाणी नेल्लोर एफएम केन्द्र का उद्घाटन ।



उपराष्ट्रपति एम. वेंकैया नायडू ने गुरुवार 21 फरवरी को आकाशवाणी एफएम केन्द्र का उद्घाटन किया। इस मौके पर उन्होंने कहा नेल्लोर की जनता के लिए आधुनिक तकनीकी रूप से तैयार आकाशवाणी केन्द्र की शुरुआत करना बहुत खुशी की बात है।

आंध्र प्रदेश एक ऐसा राज्य है जिसमें सबसे पहले नेल्लोर समेत आसपास के क्षेत्र में आकाशवाणी एफएम की सेवाएं शुरू की गई हैं। जब वेंकैया नायडू केन्द्र सरकार में सूचना एवं प्रसारण मंत्री थे तब उन्होंने नेल्लोर में इस आकाशवाणी एफएम रेडियो केन्द्र की नींव रखी थी।

इस केन्द्र का गुरुवार को उन्होंने उपराष्ट्रपति बनकर उद्घाटन किया है जो कि उनके लिए हर्ष की बात है। 
उन्होंने कहा यह स्थानीय एफएम रेडियो सामाजिक, आधुनिक तकनीक को जनता तक पहुंचाने में मुख्य भूमिका निभाएगा।इस एफएम केन्द्र्र में स्थानीय कलाकारों को विशेष ऊर्जा देने के लिए आगे आने को कहा। संगीत, शास्त्रीय संगीत और भी अन्य विषयों में कलाकारों को मौका दिया जाएगा। साथ ही उन्होंने सभी वर्गों की मुख्य सूचनाएं प्रसारित करने की बात कही।

उपराष्ट्रपति ने कहा कि आज अंतरराष्ट्रीय मातृभाषा दिवस है इसलिए तेलुगू भाषा का आदर रखकर उसे प्रोत्साहित करने की आवश्यकता है। भाषा भावों को एक सूत्र में बांधना भारत देश की एक विशेषता है। इस अवसर पर उनके साथ स्थानीय नेता और अधिकारी भी उपस्थित थे।

Radio Saving Lives - Workshop - A Joint initiative of All India Radio,UNICEF and BBC Media Action, New Delhi

यूके एशियन फ़िल्म फ़ेस्टिवल में अपनी आवाज़ बुलंद करेेेेगी फिल्‍म 2 Band Radio



2 Band Radio, Actor Pradhuman Singh, Film 2 Band Radio, Kunwar Shakti Singh, Miss India Tourism-Supermodel Sneha Jagiasi, Neelu Dogra, Rahat Kazmi Films, Saki Shah., Sneha jgyasi, Tariq Khan Production and Zeba Sajid Films, UK Asian Film Festival, निर्देशक सकी शाह

2 Band Radio की कहानी हिमालय के एक छोटे से एक गांव की पृष्ठभूमि पर बनी है जहां रहनेवाले लोगों ने कभी रेडियो देखा नहीं

ज़रा कल्पना कीजिए कि आप बड़े ही उत्साह और इत्मीनान के साथ अपनी साइकिल चला रहे हैं और उसी वक्त किसी अनजान से कोने में छुपकर खड़ा नगरपालिका का एक कर्मचारी आपके पास लाइसेंस है या नहीं, ये देखने के लिए आप पर झपट पड़ता है. आप दरवाज़े‌ पर पड़ रही दस्तक के बाद दरवाज़ा खोलते हैं और आप पाते हैं कि सामने स्थानीय पोस्ट ऑफ़िस का एक कर्मचारी आपका लाइसेंस मांग रहा है. दरअसल, हम जिस लाइसेंस कि बात कर रहे हैं वो है रेडियो का इस्तेमाल करने के लिए लगनेवाला रेडियो लाइसेंस.

70 के दशक के रेडियो लाइसेंस बुक आज संग्रहणीय माने जाते हैं. ऐसे समय में निर्माता राहत काज़मी लाइसेंस के उस रोचक दौर में इस्तेमाल किए जानेवाले रेडियो को जीवंत कर दिया है. उल्लेखनीय है कि पोस्ट ऑफ़िस से रेडियो लाइसेंस बुक को हासिल करना उतना ही मुश्क़िल काम हुआ करता था, जितना कि आज के समय में अपने ऑटोमोबाइल के डील के लिए आरसी बुक पाना होता है.

राहत काज़मी कहते हैं, “उस दौर को फिर से जीवंत करना उतना आसान नहीं है जब पोस्ट ऑफ़िस हमारी ज़िंदगी का एक बेहद अहम हिस्सा और बाबूगिरी के दबदबे की पहचान हुआ करता था. वो वक्त विविध भारती और ऑल इंडिया रेडियो के वर्चस्व का था. 2 Band Radio की कहानी हिमालय के एक छोटे से एक गांव की पृष्ठभूमि पर बनी है जहां रहनेवाले लोगों ने कभी रेडियो देखा नहीं है. फिल्म की कहानी वहां पहली बार रेडियो के आने के बाद मचनेवाले हंगामे और उससे पैदा होनेवाली हंसी पर आधारित है.”

उल्लेखनीय है कि राहत काज़मी ने आइडेंटिटी कार्ड, मंटोस्तान और लिहाफ़ जैसी बेहतरीन फ़िल्मों‌ के‌ माध्यम से अंतरराष्ट्रीय स्तर पर अपनी पहचान बनाने में कामयाबी पाई है. अब तारिक़ खान प्रोडक्शन्स और ज़ेबा साजिद फ़िल्मस के साथ मिलकर राहत काज़मी फ़िल्म्स ने हंसी और तंज़ से भरपूर एक अनोखी फ़िल्म 2 Band Radio का निर्माण किया है. इस फ़िल्म की कहानी 70 के दशक में सेट की गयी है जिसे लिखा है राहत काज़मी और कुंवर शक्ति सिंह ने जबकि इसे डायरेक्ट करेंगी पहली दफ़ा फ़िल्म निर्देशन के क्षेत्र में कदम रखने जा रही सकी शाह.

‘तेरे बिन लादेन’ में नज़र आ चुके प्रद्युम्न सिंह इस फ़िल्म में मुख्य भूमिका में दिखाई देंगे. एनएसडी में उनकी सीनियर रहीं नीलू डोगरा भी फ़िल्म में दिखेंगी तो वहीं फ़ीमेल लीड के तौर पर नज़र आएंगी मिस इंडिया टूरिज़्म सुपर मॉडल रह चुकीं स्नेहा जग्यासी. इस फ़िल्म‌ में यूके में रहनेवाले अभिनेता जीतेंद्र राय भी एक ख़ास रोल में दिखेंगे. इस सबके अलावा राहत काज़मी, रितु राजपूत, ज़ाहिद क़ुरेशी, तारिक़ खान, हुसैन खान सपोर्टिंग रोल में दिखाई देंगे.

फ़िल्म‌ की निर्देशक सकी शाह ने कहा, “2 Band Radio फ़िल्म आज के हालातों के मद्देनज़र एक बेहद सामायिक फ़िल्म है क्योंकि ये फ़िल्म हमारे लालची स्वभाव से पैदा होनेवाली कुंठा और गहरी उदासी को दर्शाती है.”

Articles from Prasar Bharati Engineers featured in three consecutive issues in it and one of it ,authored by Satyajeet Dash, DDG(E) won First Commended Article Prize . The other article in same issue by Rajeev Kumar , Umesh Sikri etc.., is also an illustrative chronicle on Spectrum planning for DD Terrestrial Network. It is an initial and most important step in the process of planning for digital migration. Meenakshi Singhvi DDE & S N Singh DDG(E) are other prominent writers, whose articles are very informative. There are many Indian faces of AIR & DD officers , featured in the latest issue of ABU Technical Review i.e 276Q4, including two officers at page 23 under "ABU Technical Bureau 2018/2020".

Another pride moment is about the articles authored by M S Duhan DDG(E) {MSD} which were figured in three successive issues i.e 274Q2, 275Q3 and 276Q4. Articles titled “ Frequency Planning for 2x630 Digital Terrestrial Transmitters (274Q2), Tower’ing Tasks: Criticality in Digitalisation of a Terrestrial Network(275Q3) and Anatomy of RF Amplifiers – Failure Mechanics and Maintenance Strategies(276Q4)” constitute glorious hat-trick in three issues of a year by any author (Duhan in this case).It is rare & perhaps first "Hat-Trick" authored by one author in successive issues in the history of AIR & DD. Is't it ? Thus it is a proud moment for Prasar Bharati and warrants for "High-T" . Here "T" may be read as "Talk". Do you agree? Perhaps ----.

DD, All India Radio plan digital drive to woo young audiences


Prasar Bharati will have a completely new look in the next five years that will be able to connect with the youth, says its CEO Shashi Shekhar Vempati. Prasar Bharati will leverage latest digital technologies and improved social media practices to appeal to the country’s youth as it looks to catch up with private television and FM radio networks.The public broadcaster will also upgrade its studios and networks, apart from creating appealing content for India’s young population, said its chief executive Shashi Shekhar Vempati.

“The vision going forward is: more digital, more IT savvy, and preparing for a big transition because a lot part of our workforce will retire in the next few years,” he said in an exclusive interaction with Financial Express Online.“We have to prepare a completely new look Prasar Bharati… able to connect with the youth,” he added.

Prasar Bharati recently received Rs 1,054 crore funding from the central government for upgrading the infrastructure and network of Doordarshan and All India Radio, a significant portion of which will go into the creation of appealing content.Vempati said as a national broadcaster Prasar Bharati has a mandate to serve under served areas and those groups and languages which are not served by mainstream media.“Even now the FM radio station that is available in many small towns is All India Radio. There is no private sector,” said the Prasar Bharati CEO, adding that expanding the FM footprint is a big focus area for him by leveraging the latest technology as most of the radio listening has moved to the smart phones with many having an in-built FM chip that clearly makes them choice of listening for future.

Prasar Bharati will also leverage its presence in digital media to appeal to the youth. National broadcaster has more than 150 active twitter handles and 60 YouTube channels.“We have more than doubled our digital growth and our network of YouTube channels is delivering million plus views daily,” said Vempati, highlighting the fact that the fresh round of funding is ultimately aimed at preparing for the future.Despite the massive resources at the disposal of the national broadcaster, Doordarshan and All India Radio’s digital and social media properties lag behind in terms of impact and popularity. While NDTV’s twitter handle has 11.2 million followers, Times Now has 8.75 million and Aaj Tak has 7.75 million followers on its Twitter handle as against 2.43 million followers on the Twitter handle of DD News.Similarly, Aajtak’s YouTube Channel has 14 million subscribers, ABP News 10 million, NDTV 3.5 million. Another public broadcaster Rajya Sabha TV, which started its operations in 2011 has almost twice as many subscribers for its YouTube channel as the YouTube channel of DD News.

“Now that we have content funding coming in…so you have the opportunity in the market and you have the opportunity in terms of funding and the challenge before the team is to quickly capture the opportunity,” said Vempati while discussing the future plans for the public broadcaster that once commanded the nationwide admiration not because of the monopoly it had but because of the quality of its programme.

DD is the only platform that delivers news, don’t know what others do: Prasar Bharati CEO


Prasar Bharati CEO defended the level of autonomy enjoyed by his organisation, saying that just being adversarial does not enhance the role of a public broadcaster in anyway.

The television audience is happy with Doordarshan as it’s the only platform that gives news, Prasar Bharati Chief Executive Shashi Shekhar Vempati said, defending the role of the public broadcaster in a crowded market. “I don’t think we have fallen short in delivering the news that matters to the people. In that sense we have done our job. Everybody else… I don’t know what they’re delivering,” he said. The private news channels that dominate India’s news space are criticised by many for not spending enough on news gathering and sensationalising the coverage, reducing the prime time news into a cacophony of opinions.

Mr Vempati defended Doordarshan and AIR when questioned about the independence with which it delivers news. “Our track record of news coverage speaks for itself,” he said in an exclusive interview with Financial Express Online. “I don’t see that just because you are adversarial then in any way you are enhancing your role as a public broadcaster. See the role of public broadcaster is being much larger than getting into this, for example who is going to do news in Khasi, who is going to do news in Garo, who is going to do it in Dogri and Gochri, so those are my bigger priorities right now,” added Shashi Shekhar Vempati, who is working towards serving the underserved areas and communities.

Prasar Bharati was set up in 1997 to bring Doordarshan and All India Radio into one autonomous corporate entity. It runs two 24×7 news channels (DD News and DD India), in all, Prasar Bharati has 7 national and 17 regional channels in its bouquet. Once a monopoly, Doordarshan is facing stiff competition from private channels at present. Though their reach is unmatched, Doordarshan channels have fallen behind private players when it comes to delivering news in cable and satellite homes. Prasar Bharati is taking several steps such as expanding digital and social media footprint and launching a revamped mobile app to regain its position as the preferred news source of Indian audiences. “The unfortunate attack that happened in Pulwama, the news coverage that DD News was doing in the last few days has seen DD news alone clocking million plus views daily,” said Vempati while referring to the audience engagement on the YouTube channels of DD News.

Inspiration - The richest man in Asia who had to quit school at 15: Li Ka-shing.

This Hong Kong business magnate, investor, and philanthropist is the richest person in Asia, with a net worth of $31.9 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, as of April 16,2014.He was born in Guangdong province, China. After his father's death, he was forced to leave school to support his family before he turned 15. He found work at a plastics trading company where he laboured 16 hours a day. After years of back-breaking work, he was able to start his own company, Cheung Kong Industries.

According to a Harvard Business School article:
"From his humble beginnings in China as a teacher's son, a refugee, and later as a salesman, Li provides a lesson in integrity and adaptability. Through hard work, and a reputation for remaining true to his internal moral compass, he was able to build a business empire that includes: banking, construction, real estate, plastics, cellular phones, satellite television, cement production, retail outlets (pharmacies and supermarkets), hotels, domestic transportation (sky train), airports, electric power, steel production, ports, and shipping."

Today, Li's businesses cover almost every facet of life in Hong Kong, from electricity to telecommunications, from real estate to retail, from shipping to the Internet. The Cheung Kong Group operates in 55 countries and employs over 260,000 staff worldwide.
