Dhanak is evolving and is now on much firmer footing – all thanks to our spirited volunteers.
We are a support group for people in inter-faith/caste marriages/alliance and an advocacy group to address issues related to such an alliance.
More specifically we see DHANAK as
A space where people can share their personal experiences related to having a spouse from a different religious identity than their own. Through sharing we can learn how to deal effectively with some of the interesting challenges that such a marriage poses.
A group that can provide relevant information to people wishing to enter an inter-faith / caste marriage – the how of it.
A group that addresses stereotypes, myths, and misconceptions that exist in our society associated with inter-faith / caste marriages. Also address the fears and apprehensions of parents.
A group that holds dialogue and discussions about communalism, religious intolerance and related issues.
A group advocating for policy/legislative changes required to overcome some technical obstacles faced in inter-faith / caste marriages, related to children and their religious identity.
