Earlier this year (Feb) we were invited to the SRUTI Saathi Sammelan to talk about how to use communication and technology (including but not limited to Swara) to participate in democracy.
We took along a portable Swara IVR server and did a day long session with the participants. The SRUTI folks were kind enough to give us a mention on their website AND take some pictures.
The pictures are here:

CGNet Swara has been pioneering citizen journalism from the most marginalized tribal regions in India since 2004. After almost two decades of working in mainstream media, former BBC journalist Shubhranshu Choudhary decided to dedicate his energy towards finding a more democratic medium that wouldn’t exclude the 80 million tribals in the country, a majority of whom do not speak the national language.
