Students Exposed to Community Radio

Prof Kandarpa Das, Founder-Director of Radio Luit Guwahati addressed the faculty and students of Assam Don Bosco University (ADBU) faculty and students of the School of Social Sciences at Azara campus on Monday.

Prof Das insisted that “Community Radio is a powerful medium to give voice to the voiceless.”

After explaining in detail the various aspects of starting a community radio in the context of an educational institution Prof. Das encouraged both faculty and students to exploit the medium of community radio and come up with program of social relevance to the community.

The students and faculty had a vibrant inter-active session when they clarified various doubts regarding the medium and programming for it.

The ADBU Mass communication department students prepared and broadcast seven radio programs last November with Radio Luit.
