Who We Are
Rekhta Foundation, a not-for-profit social impact organization; established in 2012, is devoted to promoting language & literature of the Indian subcontinent and preserving its rich & varied cultural heritage. The foundation perceives its role as a catalyst in revitalizing cultural sensitivity in contemporary times.
Since its inception, the foundation has undertaken various projects which have received a widespread acknowledgment, accolades, and credibility. The foundation commenced its journey with the launch of the website www.rekhta.org, which has grown to become the world’s largest online repository of Urdu poetry and e-books. Rekhta is read in nearly 160 countries, and its follower count is increasing with each passing day.
The foundation broadly works under these categories
Making treasures of literature and language available to all
Digitizing literary heritage by offering access to rare books & manuscripts
Developing new-age learning resources for language enthusiasts
Bringing together language, literature, art and culture
These projects have become the benchmark for the foundation that holds out a vast repository of Urdu, Hindi, Rajasthani and Sufi literature written by legendary poets and authors.
A Trilingual Dictionary and online courses were also developed as learning platforms for all Urdu language enthusiasts. One of the most celebrated programs is Jashn-e-Rekhta, a three-day cultural festival. It has become the world’s largest gathering for a language, with over two hundred thousand footfall to celebrate the spirit of Urdu.
Rekhta Foundation succeeded in pulling off three consecutive programs on a grand scale in 2022, establishing a benchmark in language promotion. It included Hindwi Utsav (30th July, New Delhi), Anjas Mahotsav (29th-30th October, Jodhpur, Rajasthan) and Jashn-e-Rekhta (2-3-4 December, New Delhi).
