Sandesh - connecting rural India

In the search of work, to earn their bread lots of people in India come to metros from their distant villages. Sandesh addresses the need of communication of such people. It is an attempt to connect their parents & relatives to them where no reliable or efficient modes of communication are available. Besides the illiteracy in reading and writing in standard languages like Hindi and English, inaccessibility of communication services like phone and mails creates the major problem of other end(village) connectivity. To help solve it Sandesh suggests a new system using existing PSTN network and simple interaction methods. Sandesh contains a message receiving unit at rural end and kiosks at metro end with visual aids. It uses of print/sound based medium to convey messages.
