Lokayat is an activist group in Pune trying to awaaken people and unite them to fight against all injustices in the society.
We attempt to create awareness and organize people on various issues like impact of globalisation on various sectors of the Globalisation, Privatisation, Inflation, Unemployment, Communalism, Casteism, Gender Discrimination, etc. Lokayat is a vedic times thought process which means All problem are man-made; one should face them, and not run away from them. Hence the name of Forum is Lokayat.
We are not an NGO as we are not a funded group. We do not take funding from anyone with any strings attached. Lokayat is a self funded group and all our expenses are primarily met through contributions by our activists who contribute every month from their salaries. At times we raise funds by appealing to masses for other bigger public programs.
We meet every Sunday without fail from 4pm – 7 pm at “Opposite Syndicate Bank, Law College Road, Nal Stop, Pune -4″. The meetings have been taking place since 2004. You are most welcome to join us in our meetings and for this you can contact any of our activists. The contact details can be found in the contacts section.
