Project Oral History

मर  रहे हैं लोग 
ले जा रहे हैं अपने साथ 
हमारा विरसा
हमारे इतिहास की कहानियां 

ज़िंदा रखना चाहते हैं 
उन कहानियों को 
और पीढ़ी, २ पीढ़ी लोग 
बना रहे हैं 
कर रहे हैं 

They are dying
and taking with them
our shared history:
The stories.
Some people
want to "preserve"
They are the ones
making videos
of the stories
uploading them.
For another generation.
Maybe 2.

Hey kj: I think that as we age, the importance of our collective inheritance becomes more and more apparent. Am so glad you liked this!

Onkar sir: Thank you!
