As we move on to 2015, let me just glance back at the wonderful happenings of 2014 in the world of broadcasting in India. BES saw a new dynamic council taking over the reins, amidst lot's of challenges and expectations, We saw one of the worst floods at Jammu and Kashmir and the brave bold brilliant efforts of broadcast engineers to run the transmissions – the lifeline for the stranded people, then we saw Cyclones throwing away the infrastructures and the swift efforts of broadcast engineers to rapidly resume operations. We saw India marching at ABU with quality documentary inputs from AIR and Doordarshan and Jawhar Sircar CEO of India's Public Service broadcaster - Prasar Bharati clinching the prestigious post of ABU Vice President, a pride moment for our country. We also saw some of our beloved senior broadcasters leaving this world and we saw inflow of some of the best latest technologies in the form of Digital Radio and TV in our country. We saw excellent activities at the grass roots– indigenous developments at some Doordarshan stations, Seminars / Workshops at the local chapters - Ahmedabad, Thanjavur, Hyderabad, Pune and Mumbai.
