Cannot see this page properly? You may need MS Office 2007 or 2010 installed in your PC, as many symbols have been used from it to give correct pronunciation for Santali words. If your internet connection is slow, you may have problem in visualizing this correctly. There are still some minor niggles. I hope to find solution for that. You may leave your queries in guestbook.

Welcome to “SANTALI-SAKAM”
Did you know, you can also write Santali withRoman script in these pages which viewed by everyone without installing any fonts. Just follow the instruction given in page-”How to write Santali”
Do you know how many people speak Santali in India? 6,494,600 2001 according to 2001 census **
But how many sites could you find in Santali? I tried, found some with Santali name but written in English. Many Santali groups are there in Orkut/ Facebook/ Yahoo and other Social Networking site but discussion is in either English or Hindi in Roman /Devanagari script only. Yes some try to write Santali in roman script but when you have to pronounce a word, you have to use your imagination to do it correctly.
I created this site primarily to try Santali language in web pages so we can communicate in our own language. We may also help in keeping our language alive and growing.
Initially I thought of writing in Santali only, but got plenty of requests to put English version side by side so it could benefit those who do not know Santali properly
