Moodubidire: Principal Advisor of Heritage Project, Govt. of India, Dr. C V Anand Bose said, The ‘’Village TV’’ is going to change the perception of news segment and it will go long way in projecting good things which are done in villages.
He was speaking after launching the first kind of ‘’Village TV’’ at Peri Anganwady, in Hosangadi village of Belthangady taluk, a project jointly run by Alva’s UG and PG dept of Journalism Spearhead Media Private Limited of Mangalore, Global TV, CNET, Edulink ITEE and Hosangady Village Panchayath.
He said, ‘’Village TV must fulfill the vision of Mahathma Gandhiji, India to become Cultural, educational and intellectual superpower in all possible way. It should always strive to show the truth and only a naked truth’. ‘When we are all running forward in life, when we become prosperous, rich, educated and powerful let us not forget, if there is one person is fallen on the wayside, we should take them up and walk along’, he added.
Vice Chancellor of Mangalore University Dr P Subrahmanya Yadapadithaya said, “India lives in villages and its success lies in developing villages instead of cities. He added and said; technology should be used for the advancement and benefit of the society.
Gandhiji had worked for Gram swaraj and Village TV is the firm step that takes the vision forward, said CA Valarian Dalmaida. Our villages are having rich resources. More than that our villages have human resources and human values. Development is not just making infrastructure. It is in instilling values and relationship between people. Non Resident Indians are closely connected to their native places. They wanted to help their village grow. We should work to bring people for development of villages, said CA Valerian Dalmaida.
Presiding over the program, Alva’s Education Foundation Management Trustee Vivek Alva said, though the students of cities are getting education, they are somewhere failing in acquiring value education. But children of villages are taught responsibility, leadership and skill along with education at their tender age, which makes them stand different in the mass’’.
Former MD of Indian Railways Financial Corporation, Santhosh Kumar Pattnayak, spoke on the occasion. Earlier, the dignitaries had visited the Panchayath Office where works and best practices of village were presented to them. An appeal to accomplish Hosangady Gram Panchayah a complete solar village and construction of two sizeable check dams was submitted to Dr CV Ananda Bose.
