SRINAGAR JUNE, 14: Umar Nisar, (17) boy from a small hamlet in Tral-Awantipora area of south Kashmir, one of the most disturbed areas of Kashmir, is working hard these days to take the voice of the valley to the world.
At a very young age, Umar Nisar has already become founder and Director of Pannun FM Digital Media & Broadcasting Network, a Digital Media Network and radio station. Through his radio station, he aims to play news regarding burning issues of the state and also start a new discourse about Kashmiri art and culture. The radio, that plays both Bollywood numbers and Kashmiri songs, can be heard round the globe, Umar explains.
He has also keen interest in Mass Media And Journalism. Umar is a music buff and that was his inspiration behind setting up ‘Pannun FM International’ a worldwide radio system.
“When I joined computer institute my joy had no limits,” says Umar, who rather than spending his time surfing the net concentrated on programming instead. “I wanted to become a programmer.”
Thus began Umar’s journey to do something extraordinary with his skills. “I wanted to create a platform for youngsters like myself. And that is how Panun FM happened.”
But the journey was not as easy as Umar had thought. It took him almost eight months to finish . “I would skip meals, borrow books on software from professionals to get through,” says Umar
Till the time Umar was done with his FM station, he has kept the project a secret. “I wanted to surprise everybody,” says Umar
However, before surprise her mom and dear one, Umar wanted to be sure that it is working the way he had thought. “Human communication is easy. Technology need proper encoding and decoding to work,” says Umar
Ask him about his future plan and Umar takes a while to answer. “Dream to be in Bollywood,” he says with a smile.
