Birth of Computer in All India Radio (Ministry of I&B) India: A saga of computer history from 1980's 30/05/2022

Birth of Computer in All India Radio (Ministry of I&B) : A saga of computer history in India from 1980's:
In this video, I am describing the birth of Computers in All India Radio & Doordarshan, Ministry of I & B. In 1982, there was a rapid expansion plan of Doordarshan and staff at 180 new TV stations had to be posted. I was finalizing the places of posting for gazetted staff. One evening at about 20.00 Hrs., Shri P. S. Dhagat, Engineer in Chief walked to my chamber, sat down and enquired what was I doing so late in office. He also asked me what were the bundle of letters lying before me. I told him that, I had written letters by hand individually to about 200 officers asking their choice of place of posting. The idea was atleast, a majority of the people shall be posted at their place of choice and we shall have to deal with few people who shall represent against their transfer. He was surprised at my effort and jokingly told, “you know there are computers, in which you could just push a button and you can get all the information about personnel, their previous postings, home place, optional places etc.” The idea stuck to me.
I started examining about the availability of computers and possibility of using these for Personnel Management Information System (PMIS).
In 1982, computers in India were rare. Wipro, DCM and Usha used to sell PC XT with 8088 chip for about Rs. 5.0 Lakh. After examining their PCs, I wanted to procure slightly more powerful computer. I found about two computers being used in Delhi at that time, one by Cabinet Secretariat, a US manufactured PDP-11, computer and the other by Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA), a mini computer made by ESPL, Mohali Punjab. The visit to these places was facilitated by Sh. S. S. Varma, Director General. My first preference was PDP-11, but I learnt US was very reluctant in exporting computers to India and export could take several years. So I decided for Mini Computer from ESPL, a PSU which was faster. We procured the first computer and it was installed on 5th Floor of Akashvani Bhawan with PMIS and Payroll to start with. The Computer center was inaugurated by Shri V. N. Gadgil, Minister of I & B.

I attribute the credit of giving idea for use of Computer to Shri Dhagat and I mentioned this in my interview published in Telematics. Shri Dhagat, who had retired by that time, saw the article and on his visit to Delhi, he met me and expressed his joy for this. One of the finest persons, and a great humane, I can never forget Shri Dhagat. The humility can just be felt that a speaker in his farewell speech at his retirement mentioned that he was the son of a State Minister of Madhya Pradesh.
Shri Bhatikar took over as Engineer-in-Chief after Shri Dhagat’s superannuation. He was equally keen in promoting IT and computer system in AIR.
We procured four more mini computers and commissioned in the four Zonal offices in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata.
I was not satisfied with the computing power. Those days, US or its allies had put restrictions on procurement of main frame computers, with the fear that India could use it for defense purposes by using simulation of processes. National Informatics Centre (NIC) wanted to control all processing systems in his center with computer terminals with Govt. departments. No Government department could procure Computers without approval of NIC. Maize of restrictions nationally and internationally. With lot of persuasion and the fact that, AIR wanted to use Computers for Computer aided design (CAD), whose data could not be transferred using DOT lines during those days, NIC ultimately approved the setting up of Computer division with a mainframe computer and CAD terminals with necessary staff under a Director IT for which the post was also created. During 1985, Norwegian Government agreed to supply main frame computers to India though it’s company Norsk Data, Norway, which used its proprietary OS (SINTRAN) and Database. They were supplying computers to CERN, Finish and Swedish nuclear plants. India jumped on the opportunity and procured six super-mini computers, one for AIR, one for DESU (Delhi Electric Supply Undertaking) and four for Defense.
We established the computer division with Norsk Data ND-550, supermini computer with CAD center and a Mini computer in Computer Headquarter in Akashvani Bhawan, four mini computers in Zonal offices, several PCs at various AIR centers including News Division and started implementing automation in several processes. We operated 14 databases and automated many processes that received several awards and acclaims. We shall discuss a few processes in other series. Dr. H. O. Srivastava was the Director and pivotal in establishing the Computers in AIR, DD and several other departments of Ministry. He also started networking of the centers under the project (AIRNET).

Broadcasting has informed, educated and entertained the world population during last 120 years of its inception. There has been lot of technical evolution during this period namely coming of digital and compression technologies, emergence of satellite, internet and fiber optics adding to the earlier terrestrial mode of transmission and providing simplex to duplex mode and interactivity. This has also led to any person becoming a broadcaster using her/his smart phone and the social media like YouTube, Instagram, Facebook etc. apart from tens of thousands of DTH channel operators. In this scenario, the content called king, has suffered most, losing its appeal, integrity, reliability and ethics. Authors feel that by 2030, this will lead to the closure of most of the Public Broadcasting services, News Channel and unethical content broadcasters on social media. Only A few bigger global delivery companies will possess the skill and finances to harness the potential of interactive
and enhanced TV (ITV and ETV) which shall permit the users to view or skip a program or commercial.

Broadcasting today:
Prasar Bharati which controls both All India Radio & Doordarshan has been shutting down the terrestrial transmission systems at regular intervals. This was predicted by me in my paper, "Broadcasting in 2020: A Prediction" published in 2003. An excerpt is given below:
"broadcasting is bound to change a lot by the year 2020. This paper predicts the shape of broadcasting in 2020. The key predictions are death of public broadcasting, emergence of many key players such as network provider, program houses, subscription management agencies etc."
Most of the predictions have come true. You can read the full paper on the link given below.https://wdfindia.in/Broadcasting_in_2020.pdf

Birth of Agriculture Channel in India
In this episode I narrate the efforts of AIR Resources to start the Kisanvani Channel. In a country like India, where the literacy level is low and different languages are spoken in different parts of the country, radio and television play significant role in informing the farmers for using the modern methods of farming in their own language. Although some agriculture programs were broadcast from AIR and Doordarshan for a long time, it was Nov. 2001, when the Ministry of Agriculture approached Ministry of I & B and Prasar Bharati to provide a channel exclusively dedicated to farmers for broadcast of information regarding agriculture and allied fields. It was the year 2003, when Dr. H. O. Srivastava, Head AIR Resources from Prasar Bharati had a meeting with the Secretary and other senior officers of Ministry of Agriculture to frame the proposal. Ultimately, a meeting was fixed with the then Honourable Minister of Agriculture, Shri Rajnath Singh to finalise the proposal which was attended by me from Prasar Bharati side and senior officers of Ministry of Agriculture. Honourable Minister asked me to provide a channel just like All India Radio and Doordarshan, for farming community. I told him, “Sir it will cost about Rs. 50,000 crores.” He told, “It is OK. Prime Minister wants this and it must be done immediately.” My next reply was “Sir, such a network will take some time. I have an immediate solution to start the channel. I can provide the entire AIR & DD network dedicated to kisan program for a few hours and we may launch it tomorrow.” Everyone in the chamber was excited. I was requeued to submit the proposal along with the draft Cabinet note. I did it in a couple of days and the approval of the Government was obtained and the Kisan Channel was launched on 15th Feb 2004. The salient points were:
An exclusive project on Mass Media support to Agriculture Extension entitled ‘Kisanvani’ from February, 2004, in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture Cooperation & Farmers’ Welfare, Ministry of Agriculture, to keep the local farmers informed about the daily market rates, weather reports and day to day information in their respective areas, at micro level.
Broadcast from identified 96 AIR stations across the country in a narrow casting mode.
The program is mostly interactive in content involving field-based recordings of farmers and
studio dial outs and dial-ins with experts and farming community which are quite popular among the target audience.
The immediate solution was provided in 2004. However, the total solution could not be undertaken due to change of Government and change of my portfolio.
As on date, the agriculture productivity per worker in India is 2% as compared to a farmer in USA, primarily due to lack of education, skill, knowledge and capacity. There is need for lot of upskilling of farming community for transformation of traditional agriculture to knowledge agriculture. A new mode of upskilling of farmers using technological intervention is required immediately.
If we provide right skill and tools to the farmers, the farming will be a profitable business in the country.

Earn Millions by transforming education 02/10/2021

Opportunity for Universities to Emerge Global leaders
The COVID has severely affected the education system all over the world. The Institutions had to resort to closure affecting 98.6% of worlds learning population totaling to 1.3 billion of the learners around the globe. AS recommended by UNESCO, many institutions are turning to remote learning. Many Institutions are also preparing to open their premises. Moving from on-campus to remote learning needs several issues to be addressed ranging from creating interactive compelling content, setting up technical infrastructure, logistics, engagement, access, and delivering everything for which students pay for the expensive education in renowned Universities. The present paper advocates a new world order for learning; partially remote learning supplemented by use of labs carefully at Universities; opening of branches of IVY leagues in less affected locations in several countries, collaborations, use of emerging technologies like AI, VR etc for compelling and entertaining content and providing a feel of vibrancy typically found on campuses by using video options for counselling, online mindfulness classes.

Birth of Radio on Indian Rails
I am describing about efforts made by AIR Resources in extending AIR radio services for the travelers on Indian Rails in 2002. During my college days, I immensely enjoyed cricket and hockey commentaries. All India Radio was the only source which used to relay live commentaries. In those days, while travelling on Rails, I used to miss AIR news and special programs such as live commentary of cricket matches.
I wished to fulfil my young age dream using WorldSpace satellite that AIR had leased to provide services in Asia and Africa. The problem of satellite radio is that the dish antenna must continuously get the signal from satellite. We decide to use a technology known as space diversity which uses multiple dishes at several places. We contacted Indian Railway authorities and explained our plan to conduct the trial. We fitted the dishes on the top of the train both on engine and guard side to avoid interruption while the train passed though bridges. The signals were combined and fed to the announcement system using a bridge and control system in Guard’s room. It was decided to relay the news, morning broadcasts and special broadcasts, if there were any.

Discussions were held with the top authorities of Railway board who gave its in-principle approval to go-ahead on select Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains. It was decided to conduct the trial and Delhi-Mumbai Shatabdi express on 18th June 2002. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was agreed to be signed after the June 18 trial run. It was decided that AIR and the Railway Board will hold another round of talks to finalise the modalities of the new service.

The first trial was on Delhi-Mumbai route on 18th June 2002 was a grand success. People on train were amazed and excited to get the program on running train including the relay of 2002 FIFA World Cup commentary. Subsequently, this was extended to more express trains which had facilities of PA system in the train.

One morning, I learnt that Engineer in Chief, AIR sent his favourite person from R & D to present this innovation in International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Geneva without the knowledge of innovators. Nevertheless, it was highly appreciated and acclaimed by ITU. It was learnt that China was quick to use in their trains.

Birth of AIR Global: Extension of AIR Delhi FM to Mauritius:
In this video I am describing the Birth of AIR Global: Extension of AIR Delhi FM to Mauritius. It was May 2002, and Shri Anil Baijal, CEO Prasar Bharati rang me and told that he has scheduled a visit for us to Mauritius next week. He further told me that this was on invitation of H.E. Shri Vijay Kumar, High Commissioner of India to Mauritius who wanted PB to implement a scheme which could strengthen the relation between the two countries. He left on me to decide the scheme. I did not know what miracle could be done within a week’s time. While pondering, an idea flashed. I talked to the Director General of Mauritius Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) and offered him to extend the FM music program of Delhi using DD uplink which he could download and feed it to all his 6 FM transmitters to cover the entire country for broadcast of Hindi film Music. He was very excited and we setup the system in two nights and carried out the trial runs. After reaching Mauritius, I met DG, MBC, got set up the entire chain and then we took Mr. Baijal to MBC Headquarter to show the result. Everyone was surprised receiving Indian music in the entire country. MBC had several interviews of Mr. Baijal and broadcasted all day on the local electronic media. Mr. Vijay Kumar organized a meeting with Sir Anerood Jugnauth, Prime Minister of Mauritius. Shri Vijay Kumar, Shri Baijal and Dr. H. O. Srivastava met the PM and demonstrated on a receiver, the reception of Hindi song from Delhi. PM was overwhelmed, profusely thanked us and requested us to provide Bhojpuri Songs also.
Subsequently AIR Resources signed a MOU with MBC for a token fee of 40000 USD per year for the service.
Taking the Cue PB extended AIR FM Gold: Program to Egypt, Tanzania, Tunisia, Myanmar, Japan, Bangladesh, Japan, and several countries.
The program extension had a profound impact on countries relation which has been described by Ministry of External Affairs, India in its video, “India Global- AIR FM Gold: Program on Mauritius” at
