Each and every member of Planetread has my highest admiration and pride for the commitment they show in bringing wholesome meaning to literacy in India. The seemingly simplistic solution applying Same Language Subtitling will never lose its significance in people empowerment through literacy.

My experience with Planetread is merely as an onlooker who understands the enormity of their work. My many years in defense took me far and wide across India and gave me the opportunity to experience first hand the low literacy levels of far too many communities of a nation that prides itself of world leading achievements. With SLS proving a success in enriching the lives of children and adults, improving their reading skills through popular media, it is indeed heart-warming to know and applaud.

I wish Planetread finds success in attaining even wider recognition and all the support it seeks to attain its noble goals.

PlanetRead’s “karaoke” approach to literacy provides automatic and subconscious reading practice. Subtitling famous Bollywood songs is a classic idea to promote literacy among the masses. Good work! Keep going your dedication and service is greatly appreciated.

Same Language Subtitling is a simple yet effect way of helping a semi-literate to improve their language skills unknowingly. PlanetRead has used this concept to subtitle famous Bollywood songs. What better way to learn and read the fun way! Hats off to the volunteers and staff of PlanetRead.

I started following planetread due to voluntary work being done by a friend and I realised that same language subtitling has a significant role to play in enabling native language speakers to read better and thereby understand better. Movies/music is the best way to get people's attention and SLS helps!
