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.

Nirendra Narayan Dev The best part of West Bengal electoral battle of 2016 is the washout of the communists – a long deserving gift from the frustrated people.

Narendra Modi's 'Somalia' remarks: Bongs and Malayalis - The bond is beyond Karl Marx ! - By Nirendra Dev

So what does this bring about? Mallus and Bongs have something common to talk about.

My wife articulates it in her own wisdom: “West Bengal’s politics for last five decades has been essentially based on violent control of territory and merciless elimination of political rivals. Every Bengali worth his or her salt knows this. But when it comes to glib talks, most Bhadraloks will talk about jungle-raj in Bihar and insurgency-related killings in Assam and beyond”.

Hence my mallu friends are wasting no time to suggest that Modi has insulted Keralites!
