AIR plans major push into left war zone with shanti geet, folk songs, welfare talk

This is part of new policy to help
All India Radio reach out to 35 districts
worst affected by Maoist and Naxalite
violence.
The centre has decided to counter Left wing propaganda in Maoist and Naxalite affected areas with a radio broadcast programme riding on "Sanskar Geet," traditional folk songs centred around community welfare and peace in local languages and discourses by religious and spiritual personalities and content showing ill effects of violence in the most affected districts. This is part of the new content policy that it has come up with to help All India Radio reach out to people in 35 districts worst affected by Maoist and Naxalite violence. At present people in these areas that have no access to TV or newspapers and limited radio access. The new content relayed by six new high power transmitters will focus on promoting stories of government schemes to eliminate poverty, showing true stories of how violence has wrecked lives, interviews of law and order authorities in these areas, apart from programmes to promote local culture, sports and arts. Till now AIR in these areas had content only in Hindi or Telugu, largely film songs, but now there will be content in 30 tribal languages, including Bhojpuri, Maithili, Dhurvi, Dorli, Chhattisgarhi, Sindhi, Santhali, Desia , Mundari, Kurukh, Khariya , Ho and Bangla, besides other dialects and languages.

These decisions were taken in a high powered meeting on June 24 initiated by Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi when chief secretaries of seven Naxal-hit states, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Telangana and Maharashtra came together. Nine secretaries of the central ministries participated in the meeting presided over by Home minister Rajnath Singh. The centre has now instructed the I& B ministry and Prasar Bharti to install new high power transmitters in six areas most affected by Left wing extremism. "The transmitters at Jagdalpur, Sambalpur, Bhawanaipatna, Jeypore, Vishakhapatnam and Hyderabad are still based on valve based old technology (and) will be now replaced by solid state transmitters. The centre has allotted a sum of Rs 32 crore for the project, to start with," an official said. High power transmitters in Patna and Ranchi have been replaced with solid state transmitters as part of the reach out efforts. Similarly, setting up of FM transmitters at Sukma, Jagdalpur, Narayanpur, Dantewda and Gaya has been submitted to the I & B ministry for which Rs 300 crore have been allotted, he added.

Weekly programmes are being designed on highlighting the "failings, misdeeds and exploitation of Naxalite groups and also the futility of extremism and violence, promotion of local arts, local folklore, sports, and interactive programmes based on telephone calls to increase participation of state functionaries," says the concept note designed for executing the policy. News based programmes to show how the world is moving forward, government's efforts to reach out to the poor and steps taken by the administration to intensify struggle against "anti-constitutional" elements will also be shown. "Most importantly, there are traditional songs and shanti geet in these areas that we want to record as part of our archives and broadcast on regular intervals," an officials said. "The point of these 15 minute programmes is to make the people there realise how futile violence is and make them turn to education and peace," an official said.

Akashvani Pune - Divyang Warkaries flag off Akashvani 'Studios on Wheel' for Ashadhi Wari with Director/Actor of National Awardee film 'Ringan'






Divyang( Blind) friends and Actors of National Award winning film ‘’Ringan’’ flagged off two Akashvani’s’Studio on wheels’ today i.e.on 29 June 2016 at 5 pm from Akashvani Pune Shivajinagr campus, which will accompany lakhs of people walking in wari from Dehu and Alandi to Pandarpur. Ashadhiwari is a historic event, a yearly yatra by lakhs of persons – around 250kms covered in 18 days, which dates back to 16th century. In the WARI participant WARKARIS are undaunted by natural impediments (rain or shine, winds and darkness) and hardships of the walk. Participating in the WARI is its own reward and Panduranga the lone object of worship. The WARI is a microcosm of the vast sects, sub-sects, castes and trades that go into the making of the state of Maharastra – as men, women, young and old people from all walks of life, age and socio-economic status walk alongside each other, never for a moment being aware of their differences or status.

Akashvani Pune has been giving live commentary of the wari procession for past 20 years as it passed through the city of Pune, but since last year Akashvani Pune took a unique initiative and sent two vehicles (Studios on Wheel) along with wari, to catch the bytes and feelings of this historic journey on whole of it’s route. Akashvani Pune programmers and engineers move with lakhs of devotees and record the interviews, bhakti songs, special events 24X7 and prepare a daily radio report which is broadcast on all Akashvani stations of Maharashtra. Trying to truly live up to it’s mission statement – BahujanHitaya- BahujanSukhaya, this is Akashvani Pune’s humble effort to connect with the people at large, walking on streets. 

As it’s tribute to lakhs of warkaries who walk together forgetting the man-made differences of caste, creed and economic and physical disparities, this year Akashvani Pune’s Studio on wheels are flagged off today by two Divyang ( Blind) friends, Shri Shantaram Gawade and Shri Ganpat Jagtap who despite their physical challenges have been walking (250 kms) for 21 days in wari for 20 years regularly. Director and actor of National Award winning film ‘Ringan’ Shri Makarand Mane and Shri Shashank Shende, which is having wari theme were also there during the flag off. This type of Radio coverage of such a magnitude continuously for over two weeks will be a world record and the AkashvaniPune team is working for it’s entry / documentation in Limca book of world record this year.

The flag off was done by Shri Prakash Chabria,Chaiman,Finolex Pipes and two Divyang ( Blind) friends, Shri Shantaram Gawade and Shri Ganpat Jagtap. Shri R.D.Chavan,AGM,Bank of Maharashtra,Shri Ashish Bhatnagar,DDG,AIR Pune,Shri Nitin Kelkar,DD, News,AIR Pune and Shri Ravindra Khasnis,Head of Prog.,AIR Pune graced the event.
