  14. 15. Text &quot;...Listening to the Softest and the Loudest of Sounds ...&quot; &quot;...At the Compughar, technology is not a terror, neither is it expensive. We have computers here, but no computer course. Neither is their any vocational training. What there is, is an open environment. Here, we write that which we feel. Whatever we write, we type onto the computer. This is not a place where we young people and kids are under any kind of pressure&quot;. (Compughar - literally, 'computer house' - basti (neighbourhood) speak for the Ankur/Sarai digital lab at the LNJP basti, Delhi) Collaboration between Sarai and Ankur Ankur is an NGO working in the field of Alternative, Critical and Non Formal Education 3 Locality Media Labs Located in a Working Class Neighbourhood and in 2 Illegal Settlements Locality Labs networked with Cybermohalla R&D Lab & the Sarai Media Lab 60 Young Practitioners Meeting Thrice a Week Oldest Locality Lab is 4 Years Old

  18. 22. Text &quot;A re-telling, a word taken to signify the simultaneous existence of different versions of a narrative within oral, and from now onwards, digital cultures... A rescension cannot be an improvement, nor can it connote a diminishing of value. A rescension is that version which does not act as a replacement for any other configuration of its constitutive materials. The existence of multiple rescensions is a guarantor of an idea or a work's ubiquity. This ensures that the constellation of narrative, signs and images that a work embodies is present, and waiting for iteration at more than one site at any given time. Rescensions are portable, and taken together, constitute ensembles that may form an interconnected web of ideas, images and signs.&quot; Rescension
