HMIB Shri Prakash Javadekar inaugurates All India Radio’s new Broadcast Auditorium


Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar has inaugurated All India Radio’s new Broadcast Auditorium and launched a digital version of ‘Gurbani’ of archival value as preserved in Prasar Bharati Archives at New Delhi today. To mark the 550th Prakash Parv of Guru Nanak DevJi, ‘BaniUtsav’ – a Shabad-Kirtan Concert by eminent Raagis was also organized by the External Services Division of All India Radio.

Expressing his contentment over the successfully completed new Auditorium, the Minister for Information and Broadcasting (MIB) Prakash Javadekar stated that this multi-purpose auditorium will now act as a one-stop-destination for artists which will help in promoting their creativity and talent while also catering to honing one’s own skills and thus simultaneously representing India in the global front.

“An auditorium of its own would not only help in organizing the existing regular events but also organise more events to popularise various genres of music, dance, theatre etc. and have the potential of turning the place into a new cultural hub and destination in the capital,” he said.

Lauding the joined efforts of both Prasar Bharati and MIB in completing the state-of-the-art modern auditorium, Javadekar stressed to make the adequate utilization of such a facility and promote work of art.

Accompanied by Union Minister of Food Processing Industries Harsimrat Kaur Badal and Minister of State for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Babul Supriyo, a Plaque of the New Auditorium was also unveiled by Javadekar.

Recalling upon the teachings of Guru Nanak DevJi Maharaj Harsimrat Kaur Badal spoke of the noble saint’s Prakash having spread far and wide not only today in the times of technology, but over 500 years ago when he walked on the surface of the earth and travelled from Asia to Middle-East, Caribbean shores to Central Asian meadows and was received as a prophet of succour and solace needed by humanity for worldly and eternal peace, with a message of universal brotherhood.

The need for a modern auditorium of its own was felt for long by the constituents of Prasar Bharati – All India Radio and Doordarshan for organizing cultural events like music and dance concerts, talent hunt shows, memorial lectures etc.

The 465-seat Auditorium encompasses Broadcast Museum, SanskarGeet Corner, Rehearsal Hall, Library, Conference facility and Cafeteria under one roof with a gallery overlooking the floor and inbuilt devices for recording, online editing, uplinking and live streaming of audio and visual content. This facility will cater to the requirements of PrasarBharati’s aural and visual wings, i.e. All India Radio and Doordarshan.

The auditorium complex which is situated inside the AIR premises in Parliament Street overlooks a newly created sprawling Rock Garden as part of its front façade and a huge green lawn at the posterior. The facade of the auditorium complex has been planned in conformity with Broadcasting house which is a heritage building Grade-II as per the NDMC list of the heritage buildings.

It is worth mentioning that the entire space where this modern auditorium has come up was in a dilapidated condition. Massive renovation and retrofitting was required to be done to suit as per the requirement of the auditorium complex. The project was completed within a record time of 15 months which included six months’ time for renovation and retrofitting.

Amongst those present at the event were Prasar Bharati chairman Dr. A. Surya Prakash; Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Shekhar Vempati; MIB secretary Amit Khare and AIR DG Fayyaz Sheheryar.

Inspirational:Dubai Techie Quits Job to Help 90 Cyclone-Affected Villages, Revives 564-Acre Lake



Located in the Thanjavur district and spread across 564 acres, the lake was responsible for irrigating 6,000 acres of agricultural land. However, due to constant misuse and exploitation by the soil mafia, it did not hold sufficient water.

In November 2018, 31-year-old Nimal Raghavan, a Dubai-based software developer, decided to make a trip to Nadiyam, his native village, which is located in the Cauvery Delta Region. Little did know that that he would be welcomed with the sight of utter destruction left behind by the severe cyclonic storm, Gaja.

“90 villages located in the Delta region, which is known as the ‘rice bowl of India,’ lost everything they had. The cyclone snatched people’s near and dear ones, damaged their property, destroyed their agricultural land and adversely affected their livelihoods. After the news went viral, many of my friends who were working abroad but had plans to eventually settle down here, changed their minds. However, the most unfortunate thing that happened was that generations of farmers who had lived here started abandoning their only source of livelihood⁠ and moved to cities in search of employment.”Perturbed by these developments, he did the unthinkable and resigned from his high-paying job in Dubai.“I decided to stay back in my hometown and dedicate all my energy to help the affected villages return to normalcy,” he says.

Starting with relief work, he ran the viral social media campaign #BounceBackDelta which sourced relief materials such as clothes, groceries, toiletries, tarpaulin sheets, and monetary donations from across the globe to the 90 villages affected by Gaja. He was soon joined by other youngsters in the village for the #DeltaSaplingChallenge which aimed to mitigate the loss of thousands of trees.
While the efforts continued for two months, Nimal realised they couldn’t rely on relief alone. A sustainable solution was required to help the villagers bounce back and prevent farmers from giving up agriculture.While sourcing sapling was certainly the first step, when Nimal and his team travelled across villages and interacted with the farmers, they unanimously lamented about the lack of adequate water resources in the region to sustain farming.

But the challenges were many.

When Nimal’s team started desilting this colossal lake, they only had 11 members in their group. The initial capital they started with was just Rs 20,000, whereas the expenses for renting heavy desilting machinery such went upto Rs 40,000 to 60,000 per day!Although the team saw no restraint from the district administration and the Public Works Department (PWD), sections of elders in Peravurani and nearby areas questioned the group’s capability to pull the project off.“They would discourage us, but as time passed, the youth continued their back-breaking efforts. Moved by their dedication, the inhabitants of Pongadu and Pazhaya Peravurani villages went door-to-door and contributed money amounting to almost 2 lakh. We were moved to tears by this gesture.”

 One of the village kids also donated six months of his savings. And a married couple, merely 20  minutes after the wedding ceremony, came to the site, and donated money and saplings.

Impact:
In a short span of 104 days, Nimal and KAIFA desilted approximately 250 acres of the lak e and set up soil boundary walls⁠—four km on one side, 12.5 km on another. They deepened the lake, raised the height of the existing bund by 4-5 metres and also formed and widened a bund on the northern side of the lake.They have now created three islands in the lake and planted 25,000 native saplings that help bring rainfall, maintain conducive atmospheric moisture and improve groundwater levels.
Shedding light on the impact, Nimal says, “As we speak, the lake has reached 70 per cent of its capacity. This was nothing short of a miracle for the people, who had waited for nearly two decades for this development. The rejuvenation of Peravurani will avoid wastage of 150 TMC of water in the delta region and impact more than three lakh lives.”

Watch the rejuvenated Peravurani Lake in all its glory in a video below:
