Radio Salesian Drama Educates, Entertains in COVID-19 Times
By Father C.M. Paul
Kolkata, May. 4. A community radio in the hills has hit upon a novel way to instruct and entertain its listeners during the COVID-19 lockdown and self isolation caused by Covid 19 through radio plays on social issues. ''We have been organising a Radio Drama Series from Monday 23 March 2020, during which we will feature a series of social dramas recorded in our studio,'' said Radio Salesian Programme Director Radio Journalist Samir Chhetri.

The Radio plays featured in the proposed one hour morning prime time show from 9 am to 10 am and from 1 pm to 2 pm each day (weekdays) are the winning scripts of Radio Natak Competition organised by Radio Salesian 90.8 FM two years ago for 3 categories of participants namely schools, colleges and general public.

Three winning play scripts from each category were later recorded into radio plays and packaged for half hour broadcast segments.

The Radio Play Week show will continue in the coming weeks with popular radio natak series entitled Mitini, a Sagarmatha 102.4 FM Community Radio production from Kathmandu from 1pm to 2 pm daily.

Radio natak Mitini is a social drama, which features the joys and travails of a young girl in Kathmandu valley by the same name, and runs into 118 episodes.

''Wonderful job. Especially the Corona episode is life saving effort and praiseworthy initiative. Great work,'' said Director of Kathmandu-based Community Radio Sagarmatha Dr. Raghu Mainali complimenting the effort by Radio Salesian team.

Radio Sagarmatha (estd May 1997) is one of the most popular FM radio stations of the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. The first independent community radio in entire South Asia, FM 102.4 MHz Radio Sagarmatha (Mount Everest) is on air from 5 am to 11 pm every day.

All the radio plays are in Nepali language and Radio Salesian programs are available 24x7 on internet. Besides real time 8 am to 8 pm shows, the shows are repeated from 8 pm to 8 am. To listen to Radio Salesian on internet, download 'Listen2MyRadio' App from Play store and search for 'radiosalesian'. END
