STRUGGLE WITH RADIO | By Sumantra Mukherjee

Internet radio has always worked to connect the lives, sentiments and emotions of the people of various communities thereby giving a launch-pad. Since the internet users in rural Assam are much less, therefore the internet radio may not be a big thing. A person in rural Assam still prefers to sit with transistor radio or commonly the radio of their phones and tune to the AIR FM station listening the songs and news updates. And our aim is to make this internet radio station “open-source”. Any person having any knowledge can volunteer to enlighten us as well as the listeners. It is the one-place where poetry, drama, songs, dance can roll without any premium terms & condition provided it does not hurt the sentiments of any. That’s how we can nurture our beautiful ethos of Assam and bring back the golden bird in front of the world.
