ARTICLES: Community radio on wheels

Community radio on wheels

UP in the hills of Kothmale, about 25 kilometres southwest of Kandy in the central province of Sri Lanka, a strange vehicle can be seen sputtering along the dirt tracks of the villages. At first glance, it is an autorickshaw or tuktuk, a familiar sight on the roads of South Asia and as common on the streets of Sri Lanka as sarongs.

But this is no ordinary vehicle. This is eTukTuk, the world's first radio-station and multimedia centre on three wheels.
