Sahapedia is an open online resource on the arts, cultures and heritage of India. “Saha”, Sanskrit for “together with”, is an invitation to explore together the richness of our cultural landscapes.
We understand that knowledge around each subject is complex and has many dimensions. So, our platform gives you many options for finding your preferred way around each subject. At Sahapedia, you can read articles, watch videos, listen to interviews, and browse image galleries. You can also visit historic sites and natural spaces through our virtual walks.
In the spirit of building this resource together, once you register, you can also share your writing, photographs and videos through your personal workspace. Once reviewed by Sahapedia editors, your contributions become a part of the shared encyclopedic collection. At Sahapedia, we collaborate with institutions to curate and host material from their collections.
Most of what Sahapedia shares is curated in the form of multimedia modules, made up of articles, interviews, photographs, videos of performances, timelines, walkthroughs and bibliographies. We curate these collections because we want to explore each subject in-depth, showcase its multiple facets and give you options of reading, watching or listening your way through each topic. Look out for the quarter logo to instantly identify modules!
In addition to modules, you will find stand-alone articles, interviews, image galleries as well on Sahapedia - we think of these as the beginnings of what will eventually be collections on subjects. We hope these will act as starting points for you too, and that you will share your work with us, and through us, with the world.
