India gifts Bangla Prez AIR records of liberation saga

Bangladesh President Abdul Hamid, in the country for a six-day visit, has been gifted a piece of shared history by India. On the request of President Pranab Mukherjee, All India Radio (AIR) has culled out rare speeches given by former PM Indira Gandhi and Bangladesh PM Sheikh Mujibur Rahman given during the country's liberation movement. This includes the public address given by Sheikh Rahman in January 1972, interviews and speeches on the surrender of the Pakistani forces on December 16, 1971 and other programmes.

The two CD set include "Struggle of a Nation" which is based on the recordings of Akashvani, Kolkata, and documents important happenings and events from March to December 1971 and the speeches of the then PMs of India and new nation of Bangladesh. It also has the 'Samvad Bichitra' newsreel programme, that played a pivotal role during the liberation movement.

The second CD "Liberation of Bangladesh 1971" contains the public speeches from Akashvani Delhi of the then PM, Lok Sabha statements, interviews and speeches of Sheikh Rahman also known as Bangabandhu, the surrender of Pakistani forces on the 16th of December, the public address of Rahman in January, 1972 and other programmes, that are mainly in Bengali.

The recordings for the two new CDs were restored after Mukherjee and Bangladesh state radio Bangladesh Betar expressed interest that the historical material should be put in the public domain. Prasar Bharati CEO Jawhar Sircar said that the CDs had been produced in the last one month after renewed effort was put in to salvage the old recordings.

Officials said that Akashvani expecially the Kolkata station had played a critical role in the cause of Bangladesh liberation. However most of the broadcast schedule and programs were not kept in a permanent format as archives because of several constraints. "Even so Akashvani has been able to retrieve several tapes of that period," an official said.

Everyone can reap benefits from radio programmes: Rahul - Imphal



'All India Radio has been continuously feeding the listeners with useful information on a variety of subjects and the people of the state can benefit from the various programmes of the AIR Imphal'.This was disclosed by Hidangmayum Rahul Sharma, winner of the 'NE Body can sing' event organised by All India radio, North East Region at Yu Su Su Auditorium in Shillong.Narrating his ordeal leading to the success in the reality show to this Daily, the triumphant Rahul said that an elder from his locality who is a regular radio listener informed and instigated him to join the competition.

Rahul, son of H Brajamani Sharma and Bidhumukhi of Thinungei Sorok Mapal ward number 9 in Bishnupur district, had earlier earned the fourth position in the 'Best of AMMIK' competition held at Lamyanba Sanglen at Palace Compound Imphal."It was an inspiration for me to join in bigger competitions like the 'NE Body can sing', the 16th Reality Show of All India Radio", said Rahul.He had to pass a number of auditions at AIR Imphal, before participating in the competition.

In the first round, altogether 166 competitors of the state vied for the seats.Only 36 including Rahul were selected for the second round."When the result for the first round of screening was declared, I was in Guwahati.As the audition was to be held the next day, I had to return home immediately", the winner related.
Although Rahul boarded the Imphal bound bus at Guwahati and proceeded upto Jorhabad, he had to get down from the bus and return back to Guwahati after realizing that the bus-journey would not drop him at Imphal early next day.After booking a flight the next day, he arrived at Imphal on October 17 around 12 pm and participated in the second round of screening.

Subsequently, he reached the final round of the audition along with other eight contestants.In the final round, he presented the infamous number from noted singer Nongmaithem Pahari 'Nang gi Napal gi Thouraba Tingkhangna, which he never heard before.After a few days, news of his selection for the event came.Hectic rehearsals for the competition kept him engaged for a number of days."I had to present two songs in addition to the one sung in the final round of screening, so I picked up Huidrom Naoboy's song 'Sukke Keda Ningthijabi.' as my second number in the contest", Rahul told this Daily.

"At Shillong, the venue of the event, programme executive of AIR Imphal Bijaya Yumlembam guided and inspired me to attain success in the contest", Rahul recounted and said that he presented the two numbers nicely enthralling the audience.Being the fourth contestant in the final round, Hidangmayum Rahul had the confidence that he would win the coveted title.Rahul said he would never forget the contributions made by Akoijam Manikanta from Thingnungei, Polestar Guardian Association, lyricist Thingbaijam Swarankumar, and staff members of AIR Imphal in his success at the contest. He also lauded Director Moirangthem Kanankumar and staff of AIR Imphal for extending him a warm reception.

Dr. Rafeeq Masood's book making some daring new innovation in form

Rilke, one of the greatest modern poets, has a poem that reads:

THE POET SPEAKS OF PRAISING 
Oh speak, poet. what do you do?
I praise. 
But the monstrosities and the murderous
days,
how do you endure them, how do you take them? 
I praise.
But the anonymous, the nameless
grays,
how, poet. do you still invoke them? 
I praise.
What
right have you, in all displays,
in very
mask, to be genuine? 
praise.
And that the stillness and the turbulent sprays
know you like star and storm?

Drawing inspiration from Rilke, I today praise a little known contemporary Kashmiri poet who has struck some deep chords in me, as a token of gratitude for the ordeal that the poet has suffered for conceiving or writing poetry. A work of art has to be approached first and foremost as a work of art and let us note that some masterpieces of poetry in all traditions have been composed by people whom nobody knows. Seeing myself as a visitor of a City or Castle of Art, I enjoy some art works more than others and one hardly asks in a beautiful museuem about CV of the artist or unknown craftsmen who gave them to us. Believing with the traditionalist critics that every man is a special kind of artist and not that an artist is a special kind of man, I have been seeking some contemporary pieces of works of art that would be possibly of interest of some more readers. Slim works of poetry are less suspect for being worthy of larger attention. Mostly few poems of poets are all that deserve to be preserved for posterity. Rafiq Masoodi’s slim volume captured my attention, so today his work provides me the opportunity to offer my gift of praise. Let it be noted that man is a praising animal and I can’t resist praising.

No proposal to reduce retirement age from 60 to 58 years...

Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Jitendra Singh NEW DELHI, DEC 18:  There is no proposal to reduce the retirement age of employees from 60 to 58 years, the Cente said today even as it noted that 78 per cent of its total wage bill of over Rs. one lakh crore is spent on three departments — railways, home and defence (civil). In a written reply in Rajya Sabha, Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Jitendra Singh said, “The retirement age for Central Government employees was revised from 58-60 years in 1997 on the basis of recommendations of the fifth Central Pay Commission,” and that there is no such proposal “at present” to reduce the age. 
To a query whether the Centre’s was aware of the Haryana government’s move to reduce the retirement age of its employees, Singh replied in affirmative saying, “The various state governments are having their own service conditions for their employees.”
He also ruled out that there was any proposal to fix single retirement age limit policy in all state government’s and PSU in the country.“There is no such proposal at present. Age of retirement in state governments/PSUs is decided by respective state governments and board of PSUs etc depending on their requirements,” Singh said.
The Minister also said that the total wage bill of central government employees in 2012-13 was Rs. 1.04 lakh crore whereas in 2011-12 it was Rs. 92,264.88 crore and in 2010-11 it was Rs. 85,963.50 crore.The details in the reply showed the highest wage bill was that of the railways which incurred Rs. 38,560 crore (almost 38 per cent of total wage bill) in 2012-13, Rs. 35,097.08 crore in 2011-12 and Rs. 33,580.41 crore in 2010-11.Followed by the railways, the home department had the next highest wage bill of Rs. 25,113.14 crore in 2012-13, Rs. 20,036.76 crore in 2011-12 and Rs. 17,809.16 crore in 2010-12, he said.
The Minister said defence (civil) had the third highest wage bill with Rs. 14,502 crore incurred in 2012-13,Rs. 13,102.38 crore in 2011-12 and Rs. 12,127.92 crore in 2010-11.The cumulative wage bill for three departments was Rs. 78,175 crore which comes to about 78 per cent of the total wage bill of over Rs. one lakh crore incurred in 2012-13.
