Best of Indian Cinema - organized by DD in Hyderabad gets praise from Film Industry


I am writing this to express my deep gratitude for the wonderful film festival - Best of Indian Cinema - organized by DD in Hyderabad on 12th and 13th July, 2014. 

It is an irony that many Indian films, like my film Khargosh, get shown in many parts of the world in various film festivals but it is shown in very few places in India! More Europeans and Americans get to see these films than our own citizens ! In this context, DD has done a great service not only for the makers of such films but also for the people of this country who are starved of quality films. Moreover, these artistically aspiring films are being increasingly restricted to small tv screens. No doubt, the reach of television in a vast country like ours cannot be overstated but, showing these films on big screens gives a true experience of the films. Therefore, the extra effort put in by DD to show these films on big screen has been truly worth the tax payers’ money. 

Enthusiasm of the audiences (all the shows were “houseful”!) could be felt during the lively interactions with the film-makers after the screening. A big part of the audiences was young students, many of them studying mass-media. The experience of these films will go a long way in spreading and cultivating a taste for better cinema in the country. Yet another reason for which DD should conduct such festivals in many more cities and towns in the country. [ In fact, in my limited understanding, DD, with its country-wide network of centres, is the only organization in the country which is equipped to do so. NFDC is production oriented and DFF is largely oriented towards international film fests.] 

And lastly, but most importantly, the festival was so well organized, it was indeed faultless! All the arrangements and the entire atmosphere exuded so much warmth! I will indeed cherish this wonderful experience for a long time to come!

My hearty congratulations to team DD. I most sincerely hope that DD will continue in this major contribution to the spread of ‘good cinema’ in the country.

Thank you,
Best Regards, 

Paresh Kamdar

Broadcast frequency change underway for DD, AIR Prakash Javdekar I & B minister in Pune

An ambitious project to switch Doordarshan and All India Radio (AIR) broadcasts from medium wave frequency to 'FM' will soon be completed to enhance the audio quality, Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar said in Pune on Saturday.

"Work is underway and will be completed soon," he said, talking to reporters in Pune.

The ministry undertook this project as the use of cell-phones is affecting the medium wave broadcasts, he said.The minister also said that new recruitment will made at the Prasar Bharati without undermining its autonomy.
Javadekar was on Saturday felicitated by the city-headquartered Bank of Maharashtra, where he had once worked for a decade.

PM Narendra Modi wants I&B to explore ‘synergy’, exploit existing facilities.

Installing FM radio transmitters atop existing telecom towers and taking satellite television signals to villages through existing optical fibre cable network are two ideas of “synergy” which the Prime Minister’s Office wants the Information & Broadcasting Ministry to explore on priority basis.

The Narendra Modi-government has asked the I&B ministry to explore and devise ways to execute several of its important projects in tandem with other ministries so that duplication in setting up infrastructure can be avoided.

To begin with, the PMO has suggested that I&B should be actively looking at possibilities to install its FM radio transmitters on existing towers erected by the government telecom providers — MTNL and BSNL. “Erecting new towers for FM stations not just entails a huge financial cost, but is also a time-consuming process. We have received a suggestion from the PMO that we should consider putting up our radio transmitters atop the already existing telecom towers so that there is no duplication of infrastructure,” a sources in the I&B ministry said.

Another “idea” which the PMO wants the I&B ministry to explore is using the optical fibre cable network to broadcast signals of television channels. “A project to connect 2.5 lakh panchayats with optical fibre cable is already underway across the country. In fact, a sizeable number of panchayats are already connected by OFC. Since the broadband bandwidth provided by the OFC network is substantial, it may have the potential to carry signals of hundreds of satellite television channels right up to the panchayat level. From there, last-mile connectivity efforts can be made to take these signals to individual homes,” a ministry source explained.

GUEST HOUSE FACILITY AT MUMBAI

 WELCOME TO MUMBAI-THE CITY OF DREAMS

Besides being the financial & commercial capital, it has one of the largest cotton textile industries in the country.The biggest & busiest port in India. It has the largest source of oil and natural Gas.

The largest stock exchange in India, and third largest exchange in the world! Mumbai is also the capital of India's Pharmaceutical Trade and Industry.
The city is a transit point- manufactured medicines come into the city from all over India and are stored in what are called central depots from where they are redistributed all over the country.
Many multinationals & mega corporate head offices are located here, and the largest motion picture Industry in the world is here!
The city is known for creating wealth, from the busy business tycoons to the beggars in the street everyone gets his share of the pie. 40% of India's GNP, is generated from this city.
Its port handles 50% of the country's foreign trade. 40% of India's textile industry, and its citizens pay 1/3 of India's Income tax!
Majorities of the people here are Hindus, followed by Muslims, Parsis, & Christians. The city has a growing population of 15 million. Due to the high level of congestion, population has grown in the suburbs and in Navi Mumbai particularly 
The city attracts a large number of migrants from the state and other parts of the country, specially from rural states.


This port city (India's largest and busiest) accounts for a major share of the government's revenue, and has one of the world's largest harbour. In a recent survey of cities compiled, Mumbai is the fifth most expensive city in the world. 40% of this island city consists of reclaimed land from the sea.

This mega cosmopolitan city is a city of contrasts. The deceptively calm sea, its beaches and fishing boats, give lie to a city, which is bursting at its seams with population, pollution and space.

Over 60% of air pollution is due to the 7 lakh vehicles on the roads. Space constraints have given rise to towering skyscrapers standing majestically next to sprawling slums ( Dharavi -Asia's biggest slum is here). 

Haute cuisine besides hawker stalls. World renowned designer labels and brands to exquisite made in India items.
People of various caste, culture, and religion inhabit the city, and due to this diversification the customs, languages, and even the food is of infinite variety. 
The language spoken here is Hindi & Hinglish which is street speak and slang a mixture of Hindi & English. The official state language though is Marathi. 

The city is multi religious, multi cultural, multilingual.

TECHNOLOGY UPDATES


India all set to become electronic hub

In the years to come India is all set to become an electronic hub as the government has geared up to create a vibrant policy for 'Fabless Design' Industry. The ministry of information technology and brodcasting has approved the proposal and has forwarded the draft report to cabinet for approval. Zee Business is in possession of the draft report.

Fabless Design is the design and sale of hardware devices and semiconductor chips while outsourcing the fabrication or "fab" of the devices to a specialized manufacturer called a semiconductor foundry.

India would be competing with countries like China, Taiwan and Japan. India is likely to have around 55 billion worth of demand for semi-conductor, chip and embedded software by 2020.

The government of India will offer slew of incentives to domestic chip and embedded software manufacturing companies. According to the draft report, the government will provide 200percent income tax benefit under Section 35 (2AB). The government will also offer 2percent export incentive under focus product scheme and along with this 5percent interest rate subvention on working capital loan....

The IT and Broadcast Ministry is mulling to set up an electronic hub in India as the demand for electronic good is about $400 billion.
The demand for semi-conductor and chips have shot up to $80 billion, despite such whopping numbers India's contribution is negligible in this sector.
