Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2004
This description of Rahul Banerjee's work was prepared when Rahul Banerjee was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
Rahul Banerjee is formalizing language in order to revive interest and enthusiasm among tribal people for their culture and thereby get them to participate in mainstream social and political life. Simultaneously, he is using language to force policy changes that will reduce the systemic marginalization of tribal people by the rest of India.
