The purpose of Lok -Katha is to understand and interpret the contemporary views on growth and development from the perspective of the under-privileged and to orient the new generation of learners towards issues that often remain unspoken. Lok-Katha is a phrase consisting of two Indian words such as 'LOK' or the people and 'KATHA' or the story.
Lok-Katha is conceived as a forum to represent these voices in many ways. The primary purpose is to demystify the policies of the governments both in India and at the international level from the perspectives of those who remain silent in most of the policy dialogues. More so, the effort is to reproduce and promote the views of the common people in their very own ways. All the domains under the jurisdiction of Lok -Katha try to put things into perspective with the help of available credible information and interpret them from the perspective of the poor and the marginalized. Following are the domains or websites under the jurisdiction of Lok-Katha
