ABOUT







Sony Salma

As a student at IIT Bombay, Sony Salma (Mumbai, India) designed Idital (2016). Sony explains: The Sauras (alternative names and spellings include Saora, Sora, Savara and Sabara) are a tribe from Southern Odisha, north coastal Andhra Pradesh in India. They are also inhabitant the hills of Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. At home they speak their mother tongue Saura which is an AustroAsiatic language. Sauras have used other non-native dominant scripts before developing their own script. For instance in Odihsa, the Odia script was used while communicating with others. The Idital project was started to create a font for the Sora script in response to the increased availability of technology within the Saura people. Idital is the main deity of the Sauras to whom their traditional mural paintings (Italons) are dedicated. The project was started with the help and support of experts of tribal language and activists with the aim of creating and popularizing a font for the Saura language.
