AUG 15th - "At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom." I remember presenting my first Independence Day celebrations on radio in 1989. I started the broadcast with these words of India's first Prime Minister, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru and to my surprise, listeners called in to tell me that they have never heard this landmark speech before. I then realized the importance of these broadcasts and the role radio plays in shaping a community.
