When children call the shots at AIR

india Updated: Dec 11, 2006 17:02 IST

THE REINS of all programmes broadcast by the Akashwani Bhopal on Sunday were in the hands of children to mark the International Children’s Broadcasting Day.

Right from the Vande Mataram greeting early morning to all the popular interactive programmes through the day, children anchored them with skill and immaculateness.

The children presented news, anchored question answer programmes, presented dramas and songs and in general conducted all the proceedings through the day.

Almas Khan, Akshay Dwivedi, Animesh Shakya and Yashaswini took the cudgels as the announcers. They also presented devotional songs themselves. The daily thought (chintan) was read out by Shivali Tyagi. The morning programme `Namaskar Bhopal’ was anchored by Vaishali Aditya and Vivek Arya between 7.11 and 7.55 am. The children also presented songs and short play based on AIDS – as per theme given by the UNICEF. They also read out the headlines from the newspapers.

The ‘Aapka Patra’ (your letters) programme was anchored by Alankrita Shrivastava and Devansh Thakur who gave very interesting answers to the queries by listeners.

The phone-in song request programme was also interesting as the children interacted with the callers in an interesting manner.

Vishakha Rajurkar and Praharsha Bhandari conducted the ‘Hello Akashwani’ programme between 1.10 and 2.10 pm. Visually impaired children Rajkumar and Jitendra read out employment news and regional news. At 3.00 pm, the programme Balsabha was held under which drama and songs were presented.

The formal conclusion of this programme of Akashwani Bhopal, being organised with the support of UNICEF will be held on December 19 at Samanvay Bhavan, New Market. Governor Balram Jakhar will be the chief guest.

Sunday’s programme was coordinated and directed by programme officer Basant Aatram under the guidance of station director Asha Shukla and assistant station director Ramswarup Ratonia. Amita Trivedi and Pushpa Tiwari also took efforts for the success of the programme.
