WHAT IS DTUD?

A unique initiative to preserve our age-old oral traditions and pass on this knowledge to further generations by mapping the rural skills of India and digitizing them.

We are collecting and documenting oral stories and traditions which are slowly becoming extinct due to lack of interest. We are recording these stories with the help of local collaborators, organizations and volunteers from the grassroots communities. The aim of this initiative is to give a voice to these unheard stories through online platforms and keeping the age-old knowledge alive.

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

We are collecting and documenting stories which are slowly becoming extinct due to lack of interest and digitalizing the undocumented traditions for eternity. 

 

We are documenting stories in the following categories like-

WHY WE ARE DOING?
