The Diwan of Zeb-un-Nissa by Zeb-un-Nissa (1638 - 1702). Translated by Jessie Duncan Westbrook ( - )

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-diwan-by-zeb-un-nissa/
Zeb-un-Nissa was a poet and Mughal princess. This collection includes 50 of her compositions and a dedicatory poem by the translator and was translated in the 20th century. ( Newgatenovelist)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/diwanofzebunniss00zebu/page/3
    .
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard
    .
    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    'Title' by Zeb-un-Nissa. Translated by Jessie Duncan Westbrook. Read for librivox.org by Newgatenovelist.
    .

    END of recording:
    'End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.'

Pnagami has most generously consented to act as DPL.

I've modified the disclaimer to the shorter poetry disclaimer for everything except 00 and 51, where I'll read the full intro and outro.

I've shortened the file name a bit, otherwise, all looked good.
