'Hamari Beti' programme on air from today

Today is the World Radio Day, and the day the Panjab University's community radio, Jyotirgamaya 91.2mhz, launched the 'Hamari Beti' programme.

If you recall, last year, we had tied up with the University's community radio and initiated the recording for a radio programme on 'Hamari Beti' by creating a bank of recordings with various women personalities of the city.

Thanks to the School of Communication Studies, and with the coordination by the alumni of SCS and Rotary Club of Chandigarh members, the radio programme, 'Hamari Beti' went on air today morning, with the formal inauguration by Prof. Arun Grover, Vice Chancellor of Panjab University, Chandigarh.

This was a momentous occasion as President Rtn. Vivek Gupta, Director Community Services Rtn Shuchita Luthra, Hamari Beti Chair Rtn Senu Duggal, and I attended this event.

Prof Arun Grover also launched the audio-books created by the students and Rotaractors from our Club, for the visually impaired children to help them prepare for examination.

In end-March/April, we shall be launching 'Hamari Beti' Awards for recognising the women in our tricity area who are not only contributing to the society but excelling in their own respective fields.

We welcome more suggestions from our members for taking this programme further.
