Group Project 4 - Language, Literature & Ramayana

A study of Ramayana & literature from this city, which at the same time is national as well as universal. Such a study will yield connections with contemporary life leading to an understanding of character, human relationships, family as well as society. Through this, one could incorporate elements in education that enhance human sensibilities and human values.
This project would also be used to connect young people with language and literature of Hindi and other languages spoken in Varanasi and surrounding region.
A translation effort which would use machine translation tools would also be tried. Students from IIT (BHU), BHU and other institutions as well as at large (thru internet) would be involved through crowd sourcing effort.
