Literacy for a Billion through Bollywood Songs
Same Language Subtitling (SLS) is simply the idea of subtitling the lyrics of existing film songs (or music videos) on TV, in the ‘same’ language that they are sung in. Call it Karaoke on Bollywood for mass reading! A deceptively simple innovation, SLS is already delivering regular and inescapable reading practice to 150 million weak-readers in India.
Please visit our website to know more.
Every 1 USD spent on SLS generates about 30 minutes of reading practice for approximately 5,000 people for a year.
PlanetRead has offices in Mumbai and in Pondicherry. We are usually open during weekdays from 9am to 6pm. People interested in seeing our work can just send an email to Parthibhan Amudhan [email protected] to make sure that someone is available when they visit.
What To Bring
Many of us love dark chocolates... just kidding :-) You are welcome to join us for a homely south Indian meal and coffee at Pondicherry and some nice tea in Mumbai.
