Time will come when Bhubaneswar will be known for this event. Radio Fair is having a great potential. I expect it will be a large event in couple of years.
Events like Radio Fair provides feedback to the Government for development of the sector. More people should be connected to Radio Fair. This should be a bigger event.
Radio Fair will have a unique place in my heart. Because this is itself an unique initiative. Organizer of the event is doing a commendable job.
