Thank you Rohan, good reading, just a few notes ...
- I had to change your file initial to rh, there already was an rf submitted earlier in the week.
- the volume is too low at 81.4 dB, you should aim for your waveforms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

You can check your volume using our Checker program - see info at http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker You will find the volume in decibels on the Information tab. For your information, we look for around 89 dB (87-91 is OK)
(I've amplified your file in preparation for cataloging) :wink:
Please note the beginning (.5 - 1 second) and ending (5 seconds) ending silences.

*If you have not already done so, please let us know under what name would you like to appear in the LV catalog and if you have one, we can put your personal URL link on your catalog page too.
You can view your brand new LV Catalog page by clicking your forum name in the Magic Window.
