Earlier I used to make radio programmes on different issues and they used to have community participation but not at every level. Community Learning Programme (CLP) has taught me to explore various layers of an issue and once you know how things are inter-linked, you become non-judgmental about them. Now I try and understand issues from various perspectives and only then present my opinion. And interestingly, this practice has also influenced my personal life and how I deal with issues at home. It has become a way of life.
