Technology has become the fourth basic need of man's life. So, the need for computer programming is arising every passing day. However, since most of the computer programming languages are English-based, they can act as barriers for people who are not comfortable with English. Mother tongue is essential for learning as a part of intellectual ability. It helps a child in his/her moral, mental and emotional development. Mother tongue has central role in education that demands cognitive development. Studies show that children who come to school with a solid foundation in their mother tongue develop stronger literacy & logical abilities. DEEP is an initiative that will provide the Marathi speaking people, Non-English based programming system which will enable them to learn and write computer programs in Marathi. It will also provide the Marathi students a platform to learn and practice computer programming at the Elementary school level itself.
