On 12 November, Akashvani celebrated Public Service Broadcasting Day, which commemorates Mahatma Gandhi’s visit to Akashvani studios in Delhi in 1947.
Gandhi had visited Akashvani’s New Delhi studios to address people who were briefly stationed in a camp in Kurukshetra. The Mahatma had applauded the work and reach of Akashvani across India.
AIR DG F Sheheryar said, “The very idea of public service broadcasting emanates from serving the forlorn segments of society who have least access to print and visual media and are dependent on radio receivers on their pillows.”
The special programming on the occasion included recitation of Gandhi’s favourite bhajans by the Vadya Vrinda artists of AIR, Delhi station. The students of Air Force Bal Bharati School performed songs on national unity.
