For the last 7 years, information about the movement of elephants is being given in Akashvani's 'Hamar Hathi-Hamar Goth' program.
Raipur : In the Mann Ki Baat program today, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi praised the All India Radio program 'Hamar Hathi-Hamar Goth' based on information about the movement of elephants in the state of Chhattisgarh.Addressing the audience in Mann Ki Baat programme, he said that a unique example of how much change the power of radio can bring is being seen in Chhattisgarh.For the last 7 years, a popular program is being broadcast on the radio here, named 'Hamar Hathi-Hamar Goth'.Hearing the name, you might wonder what connection there could be between radio and elephant. But that's the beauty of radio.In Chhattisgarh, this program is broadcast every evening from four centers of All India Radio, Ambikapur, Raipur, Bilaspur and Raigarh and you will be surprised to know that the people living in the forests and surrounding areas of Chhattisgarh listen to this program with great attention.
Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said that in the program 'Hamar Hathi - Hamar Goth' it is told through which area of the forest the herd of elephants is passing. This information is very useful for the people here.As soon as people get information about the arrival of a herd of elephants through radio, they become alert. The danger of going on the roads through which elephants pass is averted.While this reduces the possibility of damage from elephant herds, it also helps in gathering data about elephants. The use of this data will also help in the conservation of elephants in the future.Here, information related to elephants is also being disseminated to the people through social media. This has made it easier for the people living around the forest to keep pace with the elephants.People living in other forest areas of the country can also take advantage of this unique initiative of Chhattisgarh and its experiences.
Presenter of 'Hamar Hathi-Hamar Goth' program Mr. Amalendu Mishra said that the program is broadcast at 5:00 pm from four Akashvani centers of Chhattisgarh state, Ambikapur, Raipur, Bilaspur and Raigarh.This program is also available in News on AIR and FM channel of Android mobile which can be easily heard in vehicles also.
