What better way to practice reading skills than singing along with your favourite song with lyrics that appear and get highlighted in perfect sync with the songs? PlanetRead's simple idea of Same Language Subtitling which started with television, is now poised to grow manifold with the rising popularity of internet-enabled smartphones. This idea will spread across all countries and promote literacy in a fun way on a shoestring budget and is truly worthy of being supported.

I have been watching the Rangoli program on India's national television channel for several years now and the entire experience of watching the show is enhanced by the same language subtitles that change colour exactly in sync with the audio. This initiative by PlanetRead and the entire concept of SLS is among the most innovative and simple ways of using mass media to bring about meaningful social change by educating the early Indian literates by providing them reading practice. In terms of per capita investment, it seems like one of the cheapest ways of promoting literacy and is an idea that should be implemented in many more countries.

Planetread is a very simple concept which can touch and change the lives of many, on a large scale, for the better.

As it is simple , it can be implemented easily for a large mass of people.

Many more nations should take this concept and implement it for their
population.

The organisation should have a larger promotion team to make decision makers aware of the benefits of such a simple idea.

PlanetRead is a Nonprofit organisation with a unique process for a great project and aim. Their motto says it all - "Literacy for a Billion". The idea of SLS (Same Language Subtitling) to educate is so SIMPLE, and so unique. Songs are popular worldwide - be they movie songs, Music videos, Anthems, Childhood rhymes, Poems, etc and the fact that they are now being used to 'literate' large numbers of illiterate populace is indeed highly commendable. Their numerous recognitions are ample proof of the greatness of this simple idea, and Team PlanetRead deserves a pat on their back for this initiative.

I have known the PR Team for over 6 six years. They are doing a wonderful job. My suggestion is that there be NO CHANGE. Let the present team continue, and bring laurels to PR.

Ideas that are simple and innovative can create a great impact - PlanetRead has proved just that. With the simple idea of subtitling Bollywood songs telecast on national TV, Brij Kothari and his Team are paving way for the weak readers to become functional readers. I am sure this will have a direct impact in the literacy levels of our country, very soon.

I think Planetread's work excels both in content and quality. Their daughter organization BookBox has great potential in e Learning. Their stories are excellent and the quality devoted to the work is of a very high standard. I know some people who have actually been inspired to learn a new language watching BookBox stories. BookBox's potential is immense in this new era of online learning.

The way PlanetRead maximizes its reach is amazing, "Providing literacy for a Billion" is no small task, but the way PlanetRead has approached the problem is very interesting. Educating and re-educating the people in their native tongues through popular songs is definitely a new benchmark in the Edutainmnet field.

Increase awareness and effectiveness of this program. Take the program to other channels.

PlanetRead is really making the Planet read. The organization is striving hard to make its name come true by the innovative and fun-filled idea of Same Language Subtitling (SLS) to popular bollywood songs which will reach the people's minds rapidly faster all over the world and unknowingly making them to read the newspaper of their language. This idea of SLS to make people read which in spite increases the rate of literacy is something very new and different concept. It is really working out and all sorts of people like early literates, alliterates, illiterates finding it beneficial throughout the country.

The most amazing thing attracted me a lot in this concept is that it paves a way for the people to read and learn other languages too by providing along with the translation and transliteration of the particular language instead of restricting them only to their own language which is very helpful and a fantastic thought.

I am very proud and thankful to Brij Kothari, the founder of PlanetRead, and the team for giving us this awesome concept for a social cause!

An unbelievable concept, a small tool, and a few, very few good peoples can make this entire planet different, where everybody can read.
Truly speaking, when i joined this Organization, I was not very sure that this concept can work. But within a year when I see a girl who never gone to school
nor read a book is reading a news paper my concept got changed.
Best of luck PlanetRead
