Internet Radio in the Toy Village

Thatta Ghulamka Dhiroka – Toy Village and also Dolls Village – has entered a new era with the start of the Internet Radio Project “radiotv -thatta village”by the NGO Anjuman-e-Falah-e-Aama. The idea of the Internet Radio originated from influx of visitors and their interests since early 90s. The usage of city based knowledge in combination with the experiences gained in rural areas was already an important aim and now the NGO wanted to integrate lectures and workshops that are held in the village. Awards from international exhibitions and organizations intensified the desire to engage more with the periphery. Although there is quite a lot of varied interests and participations from the surrounding areas, the knowledge gained however can be spread effectively only with modern means, like the Internet-Radio.

One should not hinder the modern technology rather integrate its useful aspects in the lives of people.
