In Conversation with RJ Alisha at Radio One 94.3 FM

By Mridula Dwivedi July 7, 2015 36 Comments , , ,

When I met RJ Alisha, I asked her “How did you find me, because we don’t know each-other?” She replied, “We searched a lot about travel bloggers and discovered you!” And that is how I appeared on the Sunday Brunch of Radio One 94.3 FM.

I was not sure when the program would be on air. And at 1.00 pm on Sunday I saw a tweet by a friend, Shashanka, that I was live on Radio One, from 10 to 11 am. I was swimming at that time! I saw the tweet two hours after the program went live. I sent a few tweets to the official handle of Radio One and they gave me the recording, which I duly present to you.

Even though I have been on radio before, they were recording live from our destination! This was the first trip to a recording studio! When I went through their office, I was amazed at how young the employees were! It actually looked like one of my classrooms when I used to teach!

Alisha and I talked about trekking in India and nearby. When I listened to our conversation once again, I realize that she asked me about solo trekking more than once. I tried to say that it was not easy for beginners.

I will elaborate on it here. You can go solo on the trails that are well marked like Triund and Valley of Flowers. But otherwise, it is easy to get lost and we, in India, do not have an effective rescue system in place. In a group someone will realize that a member is missing. Locals or your guides will search for you. But alone you are much more vulnerable.

I have never been lost (other than for a shot while in Goa and we were a big group) but I have heard stories of people who were forced to spend a night in the open in the jungle and it is not a pleasant thought.

That said, listen to the recording and tell me how did you find me on Radio One 94.3 FM?
