Kalika F.M. marks seventh anniversary
 

 CHITWAN, Oct. 13: Kalika F.M. radio station, a community radio broadcaster, here has entered the seventh year of its successful operation.

Kalika F.M. which started its test transmission seven years back is the first radio station outside of the capital to start 24 hours transmission. Initially the station broadcast programmes for six hours every day.

This F.M. station was also adjudged the best F.M. station in the Western Region of the country in a survey conducted last year by an organization called Equal Access.

Kalika F.M. radio station also broadcasts musical programmes on a separate frequency band F.M. 91 Megahertz. Thus, it is also the only radio station in the region operating a twin radio station.

Kalika F.M. organized a function here on Sunday to mark its sixth anniversary on which occasion senior musician Khim Bhaadur Gandarva was presented with the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’.

Similarly, five artists, musicians and singers among them, from Chitwan and Nawalparasi districts were presented with cash awards and certificates on the occasion of the sixth anniversary.

Likewise, two journalists were awarded the ‘Kalika Outstanding Journalism Award’. The award is given each year to two journalists one each from Chitwan district and Nawalparasi district on the occasion of the anniversary of Kalika F.M.

The recipients of the award this year are Shanta Adhikari from Chitwan and Lal Kumar Bhattarai from Nawalparasi.

On the same occasion, students securing the highest marks in the School Leaving Certificate (SLC) examinations of 2007 were honoured. They include Bikas Chepang who secured the highest marks in the SLC exams from the Chepang community and Asim Poudel of Chitwan and Rakesh Gupta of Nawalparasi who secured the highest marks from among the differently able students.
