Jnan Taranga

<p>One of the distinctive and learner friendly characteristics of Open Distance Learning (ODL) is that &lsquo;you learn while you earn&rsquo;. Similarly the greatest advantage of radio is that &lsquo;you can listen when you work&rsquo;. The Krishna KantaHandiqui State Open University, with its ultimate aim to create a knowledge based by bringing the deprived and marginalised to its foldthough ODL decided that community radio would be another important mode of communication to reach them and provide them an equal platform, otherwise ignored by the mainstream media.</p>

<p>Krishna KantaHandiqui State Open University is the only State Open University of the entire north -east. In order to reach the unreached and provide a common platform to the marginalised sections of the society, the university took the first initiative to launch the first community radio service of the region. This was a novel idea in the sense that the media somehow remain as one way medium of communication. With the motto of providing voice to the voiceless, KKHSOU launched the Community radio station christened as Jnan Taranga.&nbsp;</p>
