In our land where orality rules communication,
where 800 spoken languages reign,
lives a population that does not speak any of them.

These are the 63 million people who have deafness in India.
How can they form authentic connections if almost no one speaks or understands their only known language?

Our September launch - ‘Unspoken’ wishes to voice what cannot be said and what is not said.

We’ve collaborated with some incredible masters of the spoken word to use their words and our art to convey emotions and feelings which are usually left unspoken.
Our attempt is to raise awareness awareness about equality for the deaf and also make real impact by sponsoring meals for them.
