Sanjiv Saraf, industrialist and founder, Rekhta Foundation said, “Owing to its exclusion from the 8th schedule of the constitution, the only way to learn Rajasthani is as a mother tongue. The multitude and richness of Rajasthani cultures and traditions are fading with the passing of time due to the lack of institutional infrastructure. We are on a vital turn of evolution where the mode of preservation is changing. Owing to the presence of technologies, today it is possible to preserve and enhance the accessibility of any language and literature more than ever. The foundation of Anjas has been laid to ignite the revival and rejuvenation of the Rajasthani language and tradition by the people of Rajasthan.”

Satish Gupta, Head Programs and Outreach, Rekhta Foundation said, “In its first edition at Jodhpur, the two-day literary and cultural festival will bring together a plethora of genres and art forms of the state such as literature, theatre, academia, performing arts, music, films, arts and crafts, and various other intangible cultural practices.”
