World Radio Day - Prudence Dwarka 16B
“TV gives everyone an image, but radio gives birth to a million images in a million brains.” - Peggy Noonan
World Radio Day is an observance day held annually on 13 February to celebrate radio as a medium of communication. It was proclaimed on 3 November 2011 by UNESCO’s 36th General Conference after originally being proposed by the Kingdom of Spain. A radio show was presented by the students of Grade I-A, 6D & 8E on the occasion of World Radio Day which showcased radio as a strong means of communication as well as entertainment.
Students portrayed the role of radio jockey and shared the valuable information on leprosy, its causes and methods of prevention. A strong message about the power of ‘voice’ was shared through this show as radio is the only means that is accessible to maximum Indian population mostly in rural areas. It was also presented as a good career choice.
