Newly Lauched Indian Sign Language Dictionary Include Shah Rukh Khan's name

Shah Rukh Khan

Every year 23 September is observed as International Sign Language Day. With every passing year, the world is becoming more aware of the problems faced by people with different types of disabilities. The governments of different countries have taken different steps to ensure that their lives are as satisfying as possible. India is no exception. Earlier this month, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Indian Sign Language (ISL) dictionary. And now it has come to the fore that this dictionary has a Bollywood connection too!

There are about 10,000 words in the ISL dictionary and one of them, believe it or not, is Shah Rukh Khan! The dictionary has been developed and published by the Indian Center for Sign Language Research and Training as a DVD and in a comprehensive print edition and contains words and their associated characters. One can assume that Shah Rukh Khan's non-verbal gesture may have spread his hands, which is the trademark of the superstar. Instead of the sign language lexicon, hold the fingers of your right hand like a gun and press twice on your heart to describe Shah Rukh Khan.

Previous versions of the dictionary included Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, etc. Other words and expressions that have been added recently are Shaheed Bhagat Singh, online banking, carpooling, antitrust policies, tight-fitting clothes etc.

Meanwhile, actor Ranveer Singh has played his part for the deaf community. Today, on the occasion of International Sign Language Day, he launched five music videos made for the hearing impaired under his record company, Inc. The label's YouTube channel will also run a 12-hour digital campaign today to raise awareness of the needs and struggles of the deaf. He has also urged the government to declare ISL as the 23rd recognized language under the Constitution of India.
