RJ Rafiq : Born Vella, Always high on energy I am Mohammad Rafiq pir and I come from place best known for its walnuts called Handwara. People know me as No 1 Vella of Kashmir and they call me RJ RAFIQ. I have done my studies in Srinagar.
RJ Rafiq : Being a child, I was always fascinated about Radio and its workings, never knowing that this would be the field i would venture and excel in.
RJ Rafiq : I don’t think one requires any special skills persay to be a Radio Jockey, however the passion of the industry and most importantly willing to express your mind freely and fearlessly is what makes you fit for the job.
Over the years ,In Kashmir we have had huge listnership of radio but with the launch of private radio stations and the format these stations operate on, Radio jocks engage to the mindset of youth providing them with full on entertainment and at the same time also subtly highlighting and reaching out to the concerned authorities about peoples day to day issues. So yes we do affect people in a positive way.
RJ Rafiq :Well…. the first thing that hits my mind is my initiative that i started few months back on radio called “BHADAS BOX”. It was program highlighting our social issues like eve teasing, body shaming, domestic violence and general harassment which was run on radio as well as on digital platform. This received a huge response and appreciation amongst the listeners.
RJ Rafiq : At times you land up in a situation where in things get difficult to handle, but we are trained well enough to tackle that scenario. I remember one such instance wherein i had this celebrity in studio when we were live on air and i was not aware that the mic was on. We were in the middle of what you call a candid conversation not knowing that we are going live, but thanks to the past experience i handled the situation beautifully and it came out to be a whimsical entertaining conversion.
RJ Rafiq : Flipside……which profession hasn’t?…everything you do has two ways of seeing it…it is just that you do justice to whatever you are doing and stop taking everyone seriously.
RJ Rafiq : Well i think it differs from person to person. For me the best way to get a good script is an in depth research about that topic and at the same time observing and taking out the pointers from a real life scenario.
RJ Rafiq : I guess just follow your dreams, don’t forget your roots and be true and passionate about what ever you do in your life. And most importantly always respect your parents.
