In the digital era where reading is a rare habit, three women from Thane have collaborated to launch a new website named e-panini which would make literature more accessible to the masses. The website, which aims to collate the works of well-known authors along with that of the upcoming ones, would present it in both textual and audio-visual formats. The three women are Sangita Chavan, the editor of Panini Prakashan, her daughter, Ashwini Kondhalkar and Chavan’s friend, Vrushali Shinde.
The trio launched their non-profit independent website (https://www.epanini.in/mr/) on February 4.
Shinde said, “We want to make good stories, poems and articles available not only to readers but even to the visually impaired and the senior citizens who love to read but cannot due to physical limitations.”
Currently, the literature is available only in Marathi but the three plan to expand the website to include other languages.
The website will also mentor aspiring writers.
