Sign language becomes popular in Bengaluru, even hearing people opting to learn it
December 1, 2017
A group of deaf people came together at the Rangoli Art Centre in Bengaluru recently to communicate using sign language.
The programme called Fingerchats is organised by the NGO Enhance India and involves both deaf as well as people who are able to hear.
The deaf team first teaches sign language to people who can hear. After the training, both deaf and hearing people talk to each other in sign language.
The idea came after it was seen that there is a need for families to understand their deaf children.
The workshops are held during the fourth Sunday and it involves a coming together of the group once a month.
The NGO also plans to organise a dance event Thandav in December in which people with disabilities will participate to show their talent.
