About PARI / People's Archive of Rural India

The People's Archive of Rural India
The People's Archive of Rural India (PARI) is both a living journal and an archive aimed at recording the everyday lives of everyday people. And to do that across what is, in many ways, the most complex and diverse part of the planet: rural India, with 833 million human beings, 700 living languages, multiple cultures and unrivalled occupational diversity. PARI is an online archive seeking to capture these many worlds on one website. PARI hosts and combines video, still photo, audio and text archives. There is content we already have and content we are newly generating. Both will take time and effort to organize and load.
