About Kisan Vani

There is a continuous effort by the ISAP CRS staff to engage with the local community in order to understand their interests, aptitude, issues, culture and tradition. ISAP conducts local events like mushaira/kavi sammelan, quiz competition amongst students, and folk-song competitions from time to time.
This helps in generating interest from the local community members. Further, many programmes broadcast from Kisanvani are interactive in nature.
At 'examination' times for school going children, a special programme is scheduled wherein local school teachers are invited to the studio. Over an interactive session, students call the teacher posting their queries/ doubts, etc. Issues such as coping with examination pressure, methodology of study, trends in teaching/learning practices, etc. are dealt with exhaustively.
The answers are suitably edited before airing it so as to adapt it to the level of the students. For this, frequently asked questions with appropriate answers are also developed to enable the CRS build for forthcoming similar educational programmes.
During harvest time, awareness camps are held in the CRS premises, wherein representatives from various marketing department of respective Boards inform farmers on variety solicited, procurement status, standard specification of products that would be procured by Government agencies and related information. Such programmes keep the community engaged with Kisanvani.

Signature Programme:
Our most popular programme is 'Kisan bhaiyon ke liye Phone-in'. This programme is a fusion of folk song and agri-information bulletins. In this programme, farmers call up Kisanvani CRS to obtain agri-related information and demand folk songs of their choice by local artists. Kisanvani receives average 25 calls a day. Local artists use their traditional style of singing, which includes 'Rai', 'Aala', 'Gaari', 'Lahangi', 'Lamtera' and 'Kalgi-Turra'. Folk songs composed by these local artists are often made thematic and meaningful, which convey important messages on social issues.
For agri-related queries, scientists and officials from nearby agriculture research station and local office of agriculture department are invited as experts. This programme is a big hit on Kisanvani and in the region.

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.
