Before sunrise in Pune, India, women in the group Garīb Dhongarī Sangatnā, or “Collective of the Poor of the Mountain,” can be found singing at the grain mills, where they work grinding grain into flour. For these women, singing while simultaneously producing a staple Indian food empowers the collective feminine voice. Lyrics deal with subjects of cast, religion, political movements and mythology as an act of female resistance to the impoverishment that India’s rural communities face. The Grindmill Songs Project (part of PARI– People’s Archives of Rural India) is collecting and translating these songs, and has already published over 10,000 of them on their website so the world can listen these Pune female movement voices sing.
