It was a great knowledge sharing and learning opportunity, where we had language experts and activists from 3 different locations – one from the US, and two from Uttar Pradesh and from Uttarakhand – visit us at Anubhuti. They shared about the work they are doing in context of language revitalization and Deepa Pawar shared her work around the same in context of her own Ghisadi and NT-DNT communities.

Language being an intrinsic part of any community’s identity, dignity, intellectual development and existence, this meeting opened up new learning points for the entire team – who all belong to NT-DNT and Dalit communities and are working with groups who speak languages that are slowly fading away.
