I used to love listening to radio broadcasts when I was still in high school. In fact, my little radio had remained a source of entertainment and news to me for a long period of time. But, as I grew a little older and became a little busier with life, the habit of sticking my ears with a radio just faded away.

But still, whenever I get an opportunity, I listen to one of my favourite radio programs, which is aired in “Bengali” language from “Radio Bangladesh” 106.5 FM. It is a weekly program on agricultural activities in the south-western part of Bangladesh.

The program is aired every week on Sundays, and I try to listen to it every week. I find the program really interesting as it broadcasts success stories of farmers from some unknown and isolated parts of Bangladesh where opportunities are just too limited. Especially interesting are the program episodes where it broadcasts the success stories of women in prawn farming which helps our country to grow and export very high-quality prawns to other countries. In fact, I just love the way the radio commentator takes interviews of those honest and hard-working farmers who seem to be happy by getting an opportunity to just talk on the radio for a minute.

Besides, I take a great interest in listening to this radio program because my family owns mango gardens, and the program does talk about mango farming from time to time. On top of that, the particular program also interests me because it discusses in great detail the prospect of Bangladesh becoming one of the most successful countries in the world in agricultural production despite the fact that its agricultural land mass is declining at an alarming rate. Finally, I just love listening to this agricultural program because it takes me close to the life and domain which are free from the “hullabaloo” of city life.
