The radio man of Kumartuli

Set against this unlikely backdrop, Amit Ranjan Karmakar’s little shop is easy to miss. In his mid-60s, the ‘radio man’ of Kumartuli sits surrounded by radio sets of all sizes and vintages. (Express photo: Shashi Ghosh)

    Having been on both sides of the broadcasting ‘Manorama’, the gratitude we in radio owe to people like Ranjan Da who contributed his life’s work to the magic of radio is heartfelt. While some of us have taken ourselves out of radio but none have managed to take radio out of themselves.
    Radio will continue to live on .
