Description: Radio Dhadkan - CDKN Shubh Kal Programme on ‘water problem and conservation’ – Final Radio Script Radio Dhadkan Signature Tune (01 - 36 secs) Shubhkal Signature Tune (37 – 49 secs) Radio anchors in conversation (Male anchor - Santosh and Female anchor – Rekha) (50 sec – 01:59) Santosh - Hello friends and welcome to the Shubh Kal programme on Radio Dhadkan 107.8 MHz. I am Santosh and am accompanied by my friend Rekha. Rekha - Hello to all Radio Dhadkan listeners! Santosh - We are now about to start your favorite show Shubh Kal. Rekha - By now I am sure all of you must be aware that with every episode, we try to cover a fresh topic. I hope you all are benefitting from our shows! Santosh - Today’s episode is dedicated to the problem of unavailability of water that affects most of the villages in our district. Rekha - This problem is only going to get bigger in the future. Santosh - Therefore we must utilise water judiciously and not waste it. Rekha - Yes Santosh! Water is a limited resource and is very precious for our farmers particularly. Santosh - We have some farmers from Piparsama village with us who will explain how water problem is affecting their lives. Music Transition (02:00 – 02:04) Radio Reporter - What is the situation of water in your village? Farmer Dhakad - Irrigation is done with the help of tube wells which are now 700 feet deep. For drinking water purposes, we use tube wells situated outside our village. Reporter - What are the sources of water for farming in your village? Farmer Dhakad - We have tube wells and recently under the Balram Talaab Yojna (a government scheme), we have constructed ponds to store water. Radio Reporter - Why do you think rainfall is decreasing with time? Farmer Dhakad - Rapid deforestation is the main cause of climate change. Cutting of trees is reducing rainfall and increasing temperatures. Radio Reporter - In order to improve the water situation, what do you think can be done at the community level? Farmer Dhakad - Farmers must adopt techniques like field bunding and construct stop dams. Planting as many trees as possible will also prove beneficial. Music Transition (03:10 – 03:12) Farmer Komal Prasad - About 20 years back, we used to receive very good rainfall for 4 months. So there was no need for rain water harvesting. Now with increasing shortage of water, storing rainwater has become a necessity. By practicing field bunding, farmers can capture rainwater in the fields. This helps to increase the moisture content in the soil which in turn results in better productivity. Music Transition (04:00 – 04:03) Radio anchors in conversation (Male anchor - Santosh and Female anchor – Rekha) (04:04 - 04:46) Santosh - So Rekha, did you see how worried farmers are about water scarcity? Rekha - The underground water level is decreasing as well. Santosh - This is one major example of the consequence of climate change. Rekha - We must therefore conserve water so that our future does not suffer. Santosh - Yes Rekha, it is impossible to imagine existence of life without water. Rekha - Santosh, we can talk about this issue in a while. First tell me how are we entertaining our listeners today? Santosh - Today, instead of a regular folk song, we will entertain our listeners with Radheshyam’s jokes! Music Transition (04:47 – 04:49) Jokes (04:50- 6:35) Music Transition (06:36 – 06:38) Radio anchors in conversation (Male anchor - Santosh and Female anchor – Rekha) (06: 39 – 07: 31) Santosh - That was a good change. I too enjoy cracking jokes all the time! Rekha - But now let us proceed with our programme. Santosh - Absolutely! This is our program Shubh Kal where we are discussing water problems today. Rekha - Water is precious and its scarcity is increasing day by day. Santosh – If I talk about the past few years, there was not much water problem. Wells and ponds were always full with abundant water. Rekha - Unfortunately the situation has reversed with time. Wells and ponds have dried in many places and the underground water level is also decreasing which is a major concern for the farmers. Santosh - To discuss these issues, we have an agricultural expert with us who will tell us about less water intensive crops and various water conservation methods our farmers can adopt. Rekha - Let us talk to him. Music Transition (07:32 – 07:35) Radio reporter in conversation with KVK scientist – Dr. Ashok Singh Yadav Radio Reporter- Sir in this situation of climate change, which seeds do you advise our farmers should grow? Dr. Ashok Singh Yadav (Scientist at KVK, Piparsama) – With climate change rainfall patterns have become very erratic. Keeping the changing climate in mind, one must choose seeds and crops very carefully. In the Kharif season (summer season), farmers should use less water intensive crops like Jawahar soybean 9560 which mature in less time. Also in areas facing water scarcity farmers should grow crops like sesame, lentils etc. in the Kharif season which require less water. Ridge and furrow technique should be used by the farmers to retain moisture in the soil and get a good yield even in a water scarcity situation. Radio Reporter - How do farmers tackle scarcity of water? Dr. Ashok Singh Yadav - Water problem is increasing day by day hence farmers must adopt water conservation methods. Our government provides many schemes for rainwater harvesting like Balram Talaab Yojna and Khet Talaab Yojna. These schemes give subsidies for constructing rain water harvesting ponds. Farmers must take advantage of such schemes and construct ponds in their fields to collect and utilise the rainwater. Radio Reporter - With this continuous change in climate, what measures can our farmers take at the community level to overcome the problem of water shortage? Dr. Ashok Singh Yadav - Farmers must work together to ensure rainwater harvesting in their villages. Field bunding should be practiced as well. Radio Reporter- Thank you sir for giving this important information. Music Transition (11:20 – 11:23) Radio anchors in conversation (Male anchor - Santosh and Female anchor – Rekha) (11:24 – 12:10) Santosh - That was our agricultural expert telling our farmers about less water intensive crops and methods of farming. Rekha - This would help our farmers improve their produce even in the prevailing situation of water scarcity. Santosh - Rekha, it is very important to remember that water is precious and should not be wasted. Rekha - With this we have come to the end of our show and I would like to request our listeners to send us their feedback. Santosh - Our address is Radio Dhadkan, Gwalior bypass, A.V. road, Shivpuri. You can also call us on our number 07492401520. We shall now take your leave. Goodbye! Rekha - Bye! Shubhkal Signature Tune (12:11 – 12:22) Radio Dhadkan Signature Tune (12:23 – 13:00)
