Have you ever tried ordering food in sign language? Welcome to Hearken Cafe in the heart of Shahpur Jat in New Delhi where all barriers are broken between the deaf and mute employees and foodies, who come from different parts of the city. The cafe is a great place to learn the sign language while you order burgers and desserts. Hearken, which means listening in ancient English, was started by Smruti Nagpal who has grown up with siblings with speech and hearing impairment. Smruti's whole aim was to employ people who have this disability and bring them to join the mainstream and inspire people to communicate in sign language.
