Apro­pos your in­for­ma­tive ar­ti­cle “Ra­dio re­birth” (Oc­to­ber 2012), it is time an In­dian com­pany made a ra­dio that is ca­pa­ble of catch­ing au­dio from TV chan­nels. Some Chi­nese ra­dios with this fea­ture are avail­able for Do­or­dar­shan’s ter­res­trial chan­nels like DD I and DD Metro, but their per­for­mance leaves a lot to be de­sired. How­ever, on DTH one can lis­ten to ra­dio pro­grammes on tele­vi­sions, but the re­verse is still a tough task. The gov­ern­ment should give a boost to ra­dio in the coun­try by mak­ing FM avail­able with­out an­ten­nae and mak­ing all broad­casts dig­i­tal. Com­pa­nies, mean­while, must try and make ra­dio sets of dif­fer­ent sizes and shapes for the con­ve­nience of peo­ple. There is still no sub­sti­tute for the ra­dio, which al­lows one to do many things while lis­ten­ing and en­joy­ing pro­grammes on it. Tele­vi­sion, how­ever, re­quires con­cen­tra­tion on the part of the viewer. Plus, ra­dio does not af­fect eye­sight and is very af­ford­able.
