AIR played an important role in my marriage: Mamta Sehgal

A woman plays diverse roles before and after her marriage and each time with numerous challenges in life. Somewhere between the hustle bustles of the family responsibilities she aims to achieve her goals. Not all manage to do balance it all, but RJ Mamta Sehgal has learnt the art and there is no looking back.

Today Radioandmusic l gets you the story of Mamta Sehgal, a homemaker, a poet and an AIR casual announcer. Mamta does an 11-2 show. She has a very interesting journey to share with us; radio played a very important role here. Excerpts.

How did radio happen to you?
I was doing my MA in Economics from Mumbai University. One day I participated in a poetry circle competition held in the university where Vijay Akela (lyricist) was invited as a guest. I read the poetries written by me and he loved the way I expressed myself while reading and writing poems. He suggested me to not leave my talent at this stage and move ahead with it. He also went on to introduce me to All India Radio.
How did you manage to get into AIR?
When I first went for an interview, I went through different tests and the entire team appreciated my work. It had been a month and I did not get any call from the team. I was wondering whether I was selected or they just appreciated me as a kind gesture. Out of curiosity, I called the office to check up on the results, they told that the results were pending, but they secretly told me that I was selected.
Tell us about your first show on AIR?
In 2004 I joined AIR with a few more people. For the first 10 days, we were trained how to play a radio and the eleventh day we were given our own show. Anurag Pandey, Siddharth Kannan, Dilip Jain, Anirudh – all the renowned RJs now were my seniors back then.
My first show Chithi Aai Hai was about reading letters. The AIR Rainbow fans used to send us letters. While reading those, I used to smartly fit in my poetries in the form of a reply. That was a completely different feeling for me. It was good to know the responses from the station.
Why did you quit AIR in 2005?
In 2005, I got a call from Red FM that they want me as an RJ on their show. They heard me on AIR and loved my style of talking. I did an evening 5-9 show called Happy Hours with Jose and a countdown show on Saturday with a national show which simultaneously aired in Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata. Then I quit Red FM after one and a half year because I got an opportunity to anchor for a news channel, something that I always wanted to do.
What got you back to the place where you started from?
It was in 2007 when I got back to AIR. Before this when I was anchoring for a news channel, it was too much hardship for me, with no fixed schedule. Also, I was attacked twice post work. I used to always leave late from work and that did land me in trouble twice. Also, the schedule was harming my health. Thus I decided to quit anchoring and get back to radio talk. The team was kind enough to take me back on-air and since then (2007) I have not taken any break.
AIR has played an important role in your marriage. Tell us a bit about it.
It was in 2008 when I met my husband on Shaadi.com. During those days I was doing a midnight show called Dil Se from 12-2am. He heard my voice and fell in love even before we actually met.
The day we met for the first time he was filled with nervousness and excitement due to which I couldn’t talk much. The same day while I was on-air, he was listening to my show and asking me questions via SMS as how was his impression on me, if I like him and more. To answer each of those questions I used to reply in the form of a Shayari on-air and he understood them. This is how our story began.
What is the procedure for being a casual announcer at AIR?
To be a casual announcer on AIR, one needs to be a graduate. Everyone can be a casual announcer unless you are not a government employee. One needs to go through various tests and if selected you get a ‘Vani Certificate’- a voice training certificate from AIR as a voice artiste. With this certificate, one can apply in any station on AIR across India in languages like Hindi, English, Gujarati, and Marathi.
What is the process of show designing?
The best part of AIR is you are your own writer, presenter and music producer, it’s like you are your own boss. All we are expected to do is submit our script well in advance for approval. There are times when I do not have stories for my show; this is when I travel in local transport and observe things around. I get a lot of stories this way to share with my listeners.
Are there any limitations when it comes to broadcasting content on AIR?
Yes, being a public broadcaster we go through certain restrictions when it comes to playing music and jockeying. We cannot promote alcohol or smoke in any manner. So, we do not play any songs that include words like smoke or alcohol.
How do you feel being an AIR’s casual announcer?
I feel so good and an active woman at the same time. As I have responsibilities of my home and family too, I have opted for an 11 am- 2 pm show because my daughter comes back by 4 and I don’t want my schedule to be hampered on her.

ग्रामीण समुदाय की आवाज बना अल्फाज़-ए-मेवात सामुदायिक रेडियो


सामुदायिक रेडियो की अवधारणा आकाशवाणी की रेडियो सेवा को ध्यान में रखकर की गई थी. आकाशवाणी सरकारी तंत्र की सहायता से सूचनाओं का अदान-प्रदान करने के साथ-साथ गीत-संगीत, साक्षात्कार तथा परिचर्चाओं के जरिए जनता से रूबरू होता था और यही एकमात्र सूचना, संगीत और मनोरंजन का साधन था. आकाशवाणी और दूरदर्शन के जरिए दूर-दराज के ग्रामीण क्षेत्रों में सरकार की आवाज तो पहुंच जाती थी लेकिन समुदाय की आवाज हमेशा दबकर रह जाती थी. समुदाय को विकास योजनाओं से जोड़ने तथा योजनाओं में उनकी भागीदारी सुनिश्चित करने तथा उनकी प्रमुख आवश्यकताओं को बारे में शासन-प्रशासन अनभिज्ञ रहता था. समय के साथ-साथ ग्रामीण समुदायों के जोड़ने की पहल हुई और पंचायतों को सशक्त बनाने के लिए अधिक अधिकार दिये गये ताकि पंचायतों के जरिए सरकारी योजनाओं का लाभ हर अंतिम व्यक्ति तक पहुंचे और ऐसा हुआ भी है लेकिन जानकारी एवं साक्षरता के अभाव में कई तबके पीछे छूट गये हैं. समाज के हर अंतिम व्यक्ति तक सरकारी योजनाओं का लाभ पहुँचाने और जागरूक तथा शिक्षित बनाने के उद्देश्यों ने सामुदायिक रेडियो की परिकल्पना को साकार किया है. सामुदायिक रेडियो विशुद्ध रूप से समाज सेवा के मकसद से चलाये जा रहे हैं. यह शैक्षणिक संस्थानों तथा गैर सरकारी संस्थाओं द्वारा समाज के विभिन्न वर्गों के उत्थान के उद्देश्यों से चलाये जा रहे हैं और इनका सबसे बड़ा प्रभाव यह हुआ है कि यह वंचित समुदायों की सशक्त आवाज बनकर क्षेत्रीय विकास में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभा रहे हैं. अखबारों, इलैक्ट्रॉनिक चैनलों और कमर्शियल गीत-संगीत एफ.एम. चैनलों की भरमार के बीच लोकप्रिय होते सामुदायिक रेडियो यह साबित करते हैं कि यह वंचित समुदायों और शासन-प्रशासन तथा सरकार के बीच संवाद का सशक्त माध्यम बनकर उभरे हैं.

सामुदायिक रेडियो एक ओर जहां लोगों को जागरुक करने का काम कर रहे हैं वहीं दूसरी तरफ आम लोगों की आवाज बनकर उनकी समस्याओं को शासन-प्रशासन तथा सरकार तक पहुंचाने में मदद कर रहे हैं. यह समुदायों को आपस में जोड़ने तथा सामुदायिक भावना से सामूहिक निर्णय लेने समुदायों को प्रेरित कर रहे हैं. सामुदायिक रेडियो के माध्यम से लोग अपने आसपास घट रही घटनाओं का बारे में जागरूक हो रहे हैं. सहगल फाउंडेशन की संचार निदेशक पूजा ओ. मुरादा का कहना है कि अक्सर देखा गया है कि पारंपरिक मीडिया मसलन टी.वी. और अखबारों में ग्रामीण खबरों, समस्याओं और मुद्दों का अभाव रहता है. ऐसे में हम सामुदायिक रेडियो "अल्फाज़-ए-मेवात" के जरिए ग्रामीण भारत को शहरी भारत से जोड़ने का प्रयास कर रहे हैं. उनका कहना है कि कम्यूनिटी रेडियो के माध्यम से हम मीडिया को ज्यादा लोकतांत्रिक और विकेन्द्रीकृत करने का प्रयास कर रहे हैं. रेडियो पर क्षेत्र की समस्याएँ ही नहीं बल्कि स्थानीय लोगों को अपनी कविताएँ-गीत, पारंपरिक ज्ञान और खासकर लोकगीत गाने और प्रस्तुत करने का मंच भी प्रदान कर रहा है. ग्रामीण क्षेत्रों में जहाँ आज भी में मनोरंजन के नाम पर न तो टीवी है और न ही अखबार वहाँ यह जागरूकता के साथ-साथ ज्ञान-विज्ञान और मनोरंजन का साधन बनकर लोगों के जीवन में बदलाव का द्योतक बन गया है.

नूंह जिले के गांवों में डिजिटल इंडिया के इस दौर में भी 10 प्रतिशत से कम घरों में टेलीविज़न हैं, ऐसे में जो महिलाऐं पढ़ना-लिखना नहीं जानती रेडियो सुनकर सारी जानकारियाँ पाती हैं. पिछले 5 सालों से रेडियो अल्फाज़- ए- मेवात न केवल समुदाय की महिलाओं से जुड़ा है बल्कि समाज के हर वर्ग बच्चों, किशोरों ,किसानों, वृद्धों को विभिन्न रेडियो कार्यकमों के ज़रिये सूचना और जानकारी देकर आत्म- निर्भर बनाने में सहयोग कर रहा है ताकि वे निर्णय लेकर समाज में अपनी भागीदारी सुनिश्चित कर सकें. रेडियो ने सफलतापूर्वक पांच साल का सफर पूरा कर लिया है और इन पांच सालों में इलाके में सामुदायिक रेडियो से आये बदलाव की झलक साफ दिखाई देती है. आज इंटरनेट रेडियो (जिसे वेब रेडियो, नेट रेडियो, स्ट्रीमिंग रेडियो और ई-रेडियो ) का नया दौर चल रहा है यानि ध्वनि तरंगों के माध्यम से रेडियो का कोई भी चैनल दुनिया में कहीं पर भी सुना जा सकता है. डिजिटल इंडिया के सपने को साकार करने के लिए रेडियो का मोबाइल ऐप भी बनाया गया है और उसे स्टोरी टैलर के माध्यम से श्रोता कहीं पर भी सुन सकते हैं. रेडियो अल्फाज़-ए-मेवात की प्रोग्राम लीडर आरती मनचंदा ग्रोवर बताती हैं कि श्रोता रेडियो पर प्रसारित कार्यक्रमों का संक्षिप्त ​रूपांतरण ऐप के जरिए अपने मोबाइल पर कहीं भी और कभी भी सुन सकते है. पंचायत की भूमिका, महिलाओं की पंचायतों में भूमिका व टी.बी. की बीमारी का पूरा इलाज करवाने के महत्व पर कार्यक्रमों के अलावा ग्रामीण समुदाय को शिक्षा, चिकित्सा, साफ-सफाई, जल एवं पर्यावरण संरक्षण, आधुनिक खेती, समेत अनेक मुद्दों की सफलता के उदाहरण मोबाइल ऐप पर उपलब्ध कराये गये हैं.”

इस मोबाइल ऐप में बच्चों की शिक्षा, ग्रामीण महिलाओं का सशक्तिकरण जैसे गंभीर मुद्दों को कहानियों के माध्यम से पेश किया गया है ताकि स्कूली बच्चों से लेकर, किशोरियाँ एवं महिलाएं बेहिचक अपनी समस्याओं का निदान पा सकें. डिजिटल इंडिया के दौर में लोग गाँव हो या शहर, घर हो या खेत-खलिहान लोग मोबाइल का प्रयोग फोन करने के साथ–साथ रेडियो सुनने के लिए भी करते हैं, चाहे घर पर या फिर फिर यात्रा कर रहे हों और गांवों में यह सरल व सुलभ साधन है और इसके लिए स्मार्ट फोन की भी जरूरत नहीं है. एफ.एम. तो सभी मोबाइल पर उपलब्ध है.

क्षेत्र की किशोरियों को सशक्त बनाने और उनके सपनों को उड़ान देने के लिए रेडियो अल्फाज़–ए–मेवात, यूनिसेफ और बी बी सी मीडिया एक्शन ने मिलकर नई रेडियो श्रृंखला "फुल ऑन निक्की" की शुरूआत की है. समुदाय को सशक्त और जागरूक बनाने और कार्यक्रमों को जनोपयोगी बनाने के लिए रेडियो में ऐसे कार्यक्रमों को प्रमुखता दी जाती है जिसमें, विशेषज्ञों तथा विभागों के उच्च अधिकारी लाइव चर्चाओं के माध्यम से स्वयं लोगों की समस्याओं का निदान करते हैं और यथोचित सलाह देते हैं. अल्फाज -ए-मेवात के स्टूडियो के मोबाइल नंबर 9813164542 पर कोई भी फ़ोन करके विशेषज्ञों या अधिकारियों से बात करके अपनी समस्याओं का निदान पा सकता है. सामुदायिक रेडियो एस एम सहगल फाउंडेशन (गैर सरकारी संगठन) द्वारा 2012 में नूंह के गाँव घागस में स्थापित किया गया है. रेडियो घाघस से 20 किलोमीटर की परिधि में आने वाले 225 गांवों के ग्रामीणों को रोज विभिन्न सूचनापरक और मनोरंजन कार्यक्रमों का प्रसारण कर जानकारी प्रदान करता है. रेडियो समुदाय के हर वर्ग मसलन बच्चों, महिलाओं, किसानों, किशोरों तथा वृद्ध लोगों से विभिन्न कार्यक्रमों के जरिए जुड़ा है.

पूजा मुरादा, निदेशक, संचार, रेडियो अल्फाज़-ए-मेवात (अध्यक्ष- कम्युनिटी रेडियो ऐसोसिएशन) बताती हैं कि पांच साल पहले 3 घंटे प्रतिदिन के प्रसारण से शुरू हुआ उनका सामुदायिक रेडियो आज 13 घंटे प्रतिदिन प्रसारण कर रहा है और 2015 में रेडियो को क्षेत्र में महिला सशक्तिकरण, पंचायती राज संस्थाओं के सशक्तिकरण और सुशासन में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाने के लिए मंथन अवार्ड से नवाजा जा चुका है. मंथन अवार्ड के लिए 36 देशों से 412 से अधिक सामुदायिक रेडियो ने भाग लिया था. उनका कहना है कि "समुदाय के सहयोग और लगातार प्रयासों से यह संभव हो पाया है. रेडियो के सफल संचालन के लिए एक कोर टीम का गठन किया है जो रेडियो कार्यक्रमों की विविधता, सामग्री का चयन, विशेष दिनों में खास कार्यक्रमों का प्रसारण, कार्यशालाओं एवं लाइव चर्चाओं की रूपरेखा और समुदाय एवं सरकारी विभागों से फीडबैक की रूपरेखा तैयार करती है और उसी के अनुरूप रेडियो की प्रतिदिन की गतिविधियों का संचालन किया जाता है. यहां की महिलाएं और किशोरियाँ इतनी सशक्त हुई हैं कि रेडियो कार्यक्रमों की लाइव चर्चोओं में भाग लेती हैं, अपनी राय प्रकट करती हैं और गाँव में कुछ महिला समूह ऐसे भी हैं जो रेडियो कार्यक्रमों को बनाने में भी सहयोग देते हैं. आज इन महिलाओं की सोच में बड़ा बदलाव आना शुरु हुआ है". पूजा मुरादा का कहना है कि "सामुदायिक रेडियो चलाना बड़ा चुनौतीपूर्ण है. प्रसारण के लिए नित नई एवं विविधतापूर्ण सामग्री जुटाना, फंड की व्यवस्था एवं सामुदायिक रेडियो लिए स्टाफ को बनाये रखना चुनौतीभरा काम है. लेकिन हमारे रिपोर्टर और एंकर स्थानीय समुदाय से सम्बंध रखते हैं इसलिए कार्यक्रमों को बनाने में समुदाय की सलाह और फीडबैक प्राप्त करने में उन्हें आसानी होती है. स्थानीय समुदाय से भी कई लोग परिचर्चाएं में हिस्सा लेते हैं और अपने रिकार्ड किये हुए प्रोग्राम सुनने एवं सुनाने में तथा स्थानीय समुदाय को रेडियो से जोड़ने में उनकी महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका होती है. सोहराब, शाकिर, फाकत, मुफीद और अनुराधा हमारे रेडियो चैम्पियन हैं और कार्य निष्पादन में उनकी महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका है".

किसी ने खूब कहा है कि "जिंदा रहते हैं वो लोग, जिनमें हालात बदलने की हिम्मत होती है, फिर चाहें वह ख्यालों में जिंदा रहें या विचारों में, लेकिन वे हमेशा ज़िंदा रहते हैं ". यह पंक्तियां उन सभी महिलाओं को समर्पित हैं जो तन्मयता से समाज के विभिन्न वर्गों के सशक्तिकरण में जुटी हैं और विशेषकर जो महिलाओं को सशक्त बनाने में जुटी हैं.

Inspiration-College dropout to business tycoon — tracing Gautam Adani’s thorn-filled journey.



This isn’t just your ordinary ‘rags to riches‘ story. This is the extraordinary tale of a man who refused to cower down to fate and chose to make a solid mark in the business world instead. Gautam Adani, Founder and Chairman of the Adani Group, is one of India’s foremost business tycoons

Unlike many businessmen, Adani didn’t inherit his power and position. Hailing from a typical Gujarati-Jain family, Adani had a natural propensity for ‘dhanda’ flowing through his veins. His parents, Shantaben and Shantilal Adani, had migrated to the city of Ahmedabad from a small town called Tharad in Norther Gujarat in hopes of securing greater opportunities for their eight children. Supporting eight children was difficult, and understandably, money was a luxury for the Adanis.

He completed his schooling from Seth CN Vidyalaya in Ahmedabad and then enrolled himself for as Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce at Gujarat University. It was when he was pondering over accounts and statistics, he realised academics was not for him. Instead, he felt that he could be using his time to do bigger and better things. While still in his second year, Adani shocked many by dropping out of college. With only a hundred rupees in his pocket, he took off to the City of Dreams – Mumbai.

His had his first encounter with Lady Luck when he procured a job as a diamond sorter at the Mumbai branch of the Mahindra Brothers. Soaking in the A to Z of the trade, while also simultaneously making mental notes on the changing markets, he set up his own diamond brokerage at Zaveri Bazaar, the unrivalled jewellery market of the city. This was his first big break.

A year later, his older brother, Mahasukh Adani, bought a plastic unit in Ahmedabad and requested him to return home and run the franchise. This turned out to be a turning point in Gautam’s life. His decision to import polyvinyl chloride, a key industrial raw material, marked his advent into the global trading market.

Economic liberalisation proved to be a blessing to Gautam. Using the situation created in the markets to his advantage, he established the Adani Group in 1988. During its initial years, the soon-to-be multinational conglomerate focused on agricultural commodities and power. By 1991, the company had grown in both resources and power. Gautam believed that the time was right for the company to diversify its commodities and interests.

Since then, the Adani Group has emerged as a diversified Energy and Logistics conglomerate with key interests in Power Generation and Transmission, Coal Trading and Mining, Gas Distribution, Oil and Gas Exploration as well as Ports and Special Economic Zones. Despite owning this business giant with a flagship of over several billion dollars, Gautam never forgets his humble beginnings. Thus, he makes it a point to give back to society. With the support of his wife, Priti Adani, a dentist and Managing Trustee of Adani Foundation, the Adani Group is tied to a number of philanthropic organisations associated with Education, Community Health, Sustainable Livelihood Development and Rural Infrastructure Development. His vision is to “accomplish passionate commitment to the social obligations towards communities, fostering sustainable and integrated development, thus improving quality of life.”

 As he has often said, the key to success lies in constant learning. With this as his mantra, he trots off to acquire yet another billion dollar enterprise.

Technology Updates - Machine learning and AI



The next 20 years are likely to see more technological innovation than the world has seen in the past 300 years, and Louisa Heinrich’s ‘Inventing the Future’ panel looked to predict and analyse some of the possibilities.Hiroyuki Kawakita (a research scientist at NHK, Japan) showcased the broadcaster’s experimental work using stereoscopic TV as an overlay to mobile phone image capture. Another project was very high-resolution 360° (with footage captured in Patagonia) using a 4K image for each ‘eye’.Nils Lenke (Nuance Communications) explained how ‘intelligent assistants’, already present in vehicle audio and some home automation systems, would grow exponentially. He talked about Amazon’s Alexa, and how it and similar concepts would expand and become even more versatile and how the internet giants would – no doubt – try to dominate. “It will be usual that these AIs will talk to each other. But would you let yours talk to your bank?”

Sasha Schriber, from Disney Research in Zurich, supplied a compelling demo of how Disney prepares for current and future projects, not least in tough to render problems like snow (real, and collected from Davos for digitisation), human skin and eyes, and with clever applications such as their Cardinal ‘script to screen’ time-saving software.George Wright (head of internet research, BBC R&D) explained that huge progress was being made. Notably, projects such as VR had moved out of the lab and was now in the hands of the commissioners and for delivery. “But some of our experiments fail. It isn’t always easy to hit the sweet spot.” Wright said he had no doubt that machine learning and AI would remain of huge interest to the BBC.

Inspiration:How 4 Girls Are Working to Make the World Wonderful for 50 Underprivileged Kids in Hyderabad!


To say you desire a world where everybody lives in harmony, unity and cooperation may seem like a utopian idea. But 19-year-old Meghana Dabbara is already laying the foundation for this utopian world in Medchal on the periphery of Hyderabad.The dwellers of this world are 50 children from underprivileged sections who are imbibing values of empathy, understanding and positivity in addition to education, nutrition and all-around psycho-social development at home in Medchal.Believing a harmonious world can be achieved through a positive environment and not corporal punishment,Meghana Dabbara and her friends and fellow core team members, Khyathi Chodagiri from Hyderabad, Saumya Katuri (18) from California, and Pranita Garimella (20) from New York started Make The World Wonderful, an NGO with a vision of a world where people live in harmony, starting with children first.

Today, they are using unconventional methods to ‘Make The World Wonderful’ in numerous ways.The inspiration behind the NGO ‘Make The World Wonderful’ dates back to when Meghana was ten years old and would listen to bedtime stories of her mother’s harmonious village, where people helped each other and co-existed in harmony.By the age of 13, an older Meghana was taken aback at the stark contradiction that existed between her mother’s stories and the harsh realities of the world outside.It was then that she decided to get onto the mission of creating a world where harmony was the underlying value.

It was only in 2015 that iB Hubs connected Khyathi, Saumya and Pranita, three young and passionate girls with similar visions. Together the four young girls are working towards their vision of harmony.“My mother is my inspiration. And I am ever grateful to the iB Group, who encouraged me to realise my vision and make it a reality,” Meghana told The Better India.Following the NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling) curriculum, children are encouraged to look at the world in a new light with a number of activities and programmes.The young team has designed and researched various activities focussing on the core essence of values, integrating them into the children’s regular curriculum.

For instance, one of the activities encourages them to answer the question, “Have you filled your bucket today?” It is a program where each child has his or her own invisible ‘bucket,’ which symbolises their mental and emotional self.So, a full bucket means you feel more confident, secure, calm, patient, and friendly, while an empty bucket may make you sad, insecure, angry, stressed, afraid, or physically ill.Another activity encourages them to make a list of ten blessings they are grateful for and why, while appreciating that blessing as much as they can.Another modern-day ritual is that of holding the stone of gratitude (‘Magic Stone’) in their hand and reminding themselves about the best thing that happened that day and feel thankful for it before they sleep every night.These are kids who have lived and seen the world with its harsh realities before getting adopted under MTWW’s Child Adoption Programme (CAP).

Be it, Pooja and Rajeshwari who were left orphaned after their father was stabbed to death and mother passed away of mental shock, or the story of Aarthi and Abhishek who were asked to discontinue studies by a drunk father after their mother died in an accident, as their older elder sister was struggling to buy a one time meal.

Today, each of them has a transformation story to tell.

The children also engage in writing and reading aloud positive affirmations about themselves every day. Five times before going to bed and another five moments after waking up, it’s like music to the ears to hear a child saying, ‘I am a happy and loving kid. I respect everyone and everything. I love to learn!’They also have weekly sessions, where they gather and share their success stories with their friends.In order to build a stronger family bond between the children, another program pairs older kids with a younger one. The idea is to encourage them to look after each other.While the older kid ensures the younger one eats meals on time, attends classes, and completes their duty, it helps the younger kid imbibe values from his/her older partner and become independent.

These kids who once entered with immense emotional baggage are now not only able to take care of themselves but also are able to help other kids today. Every child also has a mentor, who guides them in all aspects of life.
