I use technology to empower language and preserve ´╗┐culture

My work consists of several projects to create digital documentation of vulnerable cultural practices including performing arts, musical traditions, lesser known monuments, neglected languages and palm leaf manuscripts. This makes cultural history more accessible, understandable and preserves it for the future.

Apart from that, I research and write about Odisha’s ancient culture on the lines of mythology, the arts and ethnomusicology. The core of my work is to elevate the power of digital mediums like YouTube and Twitter and through them breathe new life into endangered traditions, backed with rigorous research.
