This year, we've been holding translator and author workshops across the country. Here are some notes and pictures from two translator baithaks we held in Pune and Delhi.
Sandhya Taksale shares pictures from the first workshop we held in Pune. Varsha Gajendragadkar, Sai Keskar, Mrunal Vanarase, Rupali Bhave, Shruti Panse, Ashlesha Mahajan, Meera Joshi, Sushrut Kulkarni, Siddharth Kelkar were participants and Madhuri Purandare was our additional resource person.
Sandhya says, "The objective of the workshop was to share views about good translation practices for our books. It was more than successful and the discussion was meaningful. It gave a different dimension to the otherwise individual effort of translating books."
|Some serious discussions...|

|Smile please :)|
The Delhi Translators' Baithaks took place in August where we invited our Urdu and Hindi translators for an exchange of ideas and experiences. All the invitees have been working with Pratham Books since some time and are seriously invested in the mission. It was an extremely vibrant and enriching session. Big thank you to all the participants - Anis Azmi, Naghma Zafeerul Hassan, Shoaib Raza Fatmi, Rishi Mathur, Reyazuddin, Arti Smit, Faiyaz Ahmed, Rajesh Khar and Manisha Chaudhry.
