A class 10th Kashmiri student, Umar Nisar, has developed an online radio application, all by himself, to highlight problems of the youth in the conflict-ridden state.

The student who hails from Tral, a town in South Kashmir known as hotbed of militancy, chased his dream despite all odds.

The idea for the online radio ‘Pannun FM International’ came to him as he wanted to give voice  youth in Kashmir and also promote Kashmiri culture and language beyond the state’s borders.

For that, he says learnt programming all by himself. “This will be an inspiration for youth. It will also be a platform for them to explore their talent. I have invested my own money. But I am yet short of important equipments like microphones and computers,” Nisar told IANS.

The 15-year-old is expecting advertisement revenue or an angel investor to raise money and set up a full fledged studio to create more programmes.

Presently, he is managing programmes on a simple desktop.

 

Nisar, whose father drives a tractor for livelihood, took eight months to write the code for the on-line radio.



After doing a lot of research and handwork, Nisar radio programmes discus issues like water, power and education. They also talk about the daily life in Kashmir and hosts queries from school-children.

For now, Nisar’s friends and some local journalists help him in generating the content for the radio.

When he grows up, he wish to be a broadcast journalist and hopes that this project will help him in becoming a successful one.
