About Us

Swajana means “our people”. It’s a collaboration between an Indian and a U.S. video team. You can see videos of everyone below. Our goal is to show daily life in India through the eyes of people who actually live there. The U.S. team simply helps to solve technical problems and do promotion. The Indian team chooses all the stories and does the production.

Each Monday you can see a new video. Subscribe to our feeds here.
You can get involved here or put your stories ideas here.

We hope to inspire others to make these collaborative projects between countries.

Here’s how we make Swajana.com:
1. We have a wiki where we document our processes.
2. We use an email list where we agree on stories and discuss any issues.
3. We use SpinXpress to share videos with other to work on compression and publishing.
