Association for India's Development (MIT & Boston Chapters), in collaboration with Alliance for a Secular and Democratic South Asia invites you to a conversation with editor, writer, and rural reporter, P. Sainath. Sainath will introduce the People's Archive of Rural India (PARI), an online journal and archive, founded by him.

The PARI website (http://www.ruralindiaonline.org/) is aimed at recording the everyday lives of everyday people; it hosts video, still photo, audio and text articles. The site was launched in December 2014.

The website is not-for-profit and free to view; all the contributors - journalists, writers, film-makers, editors, translators, techies, lawyers and accountants - are volunteers. The website hopes to grow by public participation. Anybody can send pictures, text articles, photo stories, films - as long as they fit PARI's mandate - 'the everyday lives of everyday people'.
