PlanetRead's documentary explains the work that PlanetRead does and its impact on illiterates in India.
PlanetRead is a not-for-profit organization registered in CA, USA and in India. It is dedicated to reading and literacy development around the world and has a solid track record of work in India. PlanetRead was originally created around the idea of Same Language Subtitling (SLS), now a globally recognized innovation for mass literacy and reading development on TV. SLS for literacy was first conceived and researched in 1996 at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. Then PlanetRead pioneered the concept of "Same-Language Subtitling" (SLS) for mass literacy, by suggesting its implementation on the immensely popular Bollywood film songs on TV in India.
PlanetRead's "karaoke" approach to literacy provides automatic and regular reading practice to over 200 million early-literates in India. In addition, nearly 270 million illiterate people are motivated to become literate.
