About Gurgaon Ki Awaaz Samudayik Radio Station

Gurgaon Ki Awaaz Samudayik Radio Station is located in Gurgaon. A suburb of Delhi, the city is a fascinating mix of global corporations and call centres, and more than 100 villages on the fields on which a city of more than 2.5 million residents has mushroomed.

Gurgaon Ki Awaaz focuses solely on the voices of the marginalised communities within Gurgaon -- local villagers and the lakhs of migrant workers and their families that have shaped Gurgaon with their work. The station allows our community to go on air with their programming (the bulk of it created on-site in villages such as Garhi Harsaru, Sikanderpur, Sarai Alawardi and Dhankot) and is also a wonderful medium to reach this community -- because by its very sound and music, it is very evidently "their" station.

The station records and airs folk music and folk ballads in Hindi, Haryanvi, Bhojpuri and myriad other dialects performed by local music groups and performers, children's music (much of it recorded by the children in government schools), and debates and discussions very much like Chaupals, that bring together diverse, but local, voices.

Programs focus on careers, entrepreneurship, health, education, civic issues, governance, rights and citizenship, women's empowerment, and holding it all together a vibrant bouquet of entertainment in the form of folk music.

Our team of reporters are all drawn from this community. Education levels range from high school to post graduates but all of them manage the entire production cycle of the radio station.

Community media is any form of media that is created and controlled by a community, either a geographic community or a community of identity or interest. However, if the fundamental premise of the media is to engage those groups that are categorically excluded and marginalized from the media-making process, it will be included on this website, even if it is not explicitly created and controlled by the community.
