The Time I Got to Speak on Radio!
By Aisiri, Ekya School BTM Layout
Everyone has a dream to either hear themselves on the radio or watch themselves on television, don’t they? But our school decided to make this dream of ours come true. On the occasion of Teachers’ Day, some of us were given a chance to speak about our favourite teacher – the trickiest assignment we have received so far.
That day we left school after the first period, and got into a bus. The air was filled with excitement and nervousness. I talk a lot when I get nervous and that day, I couldn’t stop blabbering. My teacher was actually scared that I might lose my voice before the recording!
Our bus went to the Ekya School JP Nagar campus where more kids got in, one of them was my friend. We enjoyed our way to the Radio Mirchi studio which was about a 25-minute drive to the city. We had to wait a while for the students from Ekya School ITPL to join us. We were later introduced to the scriptwriter who recorded our voices.
When we told him how nervous we were, he made us do a small exercise, we were asked to stand in a circle and told to massage each other’s shoulders. This relaxed us a bit, but we were still scared about messing up.
Each one of us spoke on the microphone and later heard our voices. I really didn’t know I sounded like that! Once everyone was done with the recording and taking pictures, we bid farewell to our friends and headed to our respective schools, just in time for the national anthem and dispersal. I really enjoyed the amazing experience I had in the studio! I really look forward to doing that again. If I ever get a chance to, I would like to talk about more serious problems being faced by the society and would like to talk for a longer period of time.
