About Radio Siddhartha

We have prepared a proposal for making the community radio programmes more participatory and relevant in the real sense of the term with minimum investment.

Signature Programme:
The signature programme Amrutha Bindu focuses on community feelings, community orientation and community development by invoking commonalities. This programme is designed to create a positive approach among the listeners irrespective of the caste, community, religion, age, sex, etc. A mass-based programme, in the real sense of the term, we air five to six popular songs arranged thematically consisting a film song, lyric and a folk song for the day depending upon the circumstances and importance.
If it is mother's day, for example, important songs related to motherhood will be played on that day with the support of a good anchoring, highlighting the good qualities of mother inviting the audience to ponder over it. This is to create a sort of community feeling among the people. The programme has become very popular and depends mostly on the qualities of anchoring and narration. The programme also picks up some of the events locally important for the day by taking into account day to day happenings and also to get connected with the public in general.

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.
