Raghav Mahato… the "Amitabh Bachchan of CR in India today”

It’s very exciting to see Raghav Mahato demo his technological innovation at the Community Radio Forum India meet at the India International Centre, now underway in Delhi. Raghav told how he ran his radio station for “five to six years” before being stopped by the authorities for “violation of the law”. It’s amazing to see how a young man, with little education (“I learnt to sign my name now”) could master this technology. Stalin K, the newly-named convenor of the CR Forum India, called him, half-seriously “the Amitabh Bachchan of the Indian community radio movement”. Everyone was inspired! At least I was…. and the others clapped loudly.
