Hindustani Lyrics by Various ( - 0). Translated by Inayat Khan (1882 - 1927) and Jessie Duncan Westbrook



Quote:
Hindustani Lyrics is Inayat Khan and Jessie Duncan Westbrook's collaborative translation of Urdu poetry from mainly the 18th and 19th centuries. Included among the authors is Asif, the sixth Nizam of Hyderabad, and Zafar, the last emperor of the Mughal Empire. Most of the poems involve the Sufi themes of love, longing, and a yearning for the divine. At the same time, according to translator Jessie Duncan Westbrook, the poems undercut and resist ideas of religious orthodoxy through an ecstatic pantheism. ( Zeeshan Reshamwala)



  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17711
  • 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!

Hello!
When I added the name of the second Translator (Jessie Duncan Westbrook) and the names of each of the several authors in the compilation, the Template would give me an error. I finally submitted it without the names and it worked.

Sincerely,
Zeeshan

Thanks,
Amy

I am going to move you to Going Solo. If a proof listener is not found, please advertise for one in the Listeners and Editors Wanted forum.
Have a good night!

Hello! :)

Writing to check in and say I'm still working on this. Should have a few tracks up soon, and will advertise for a PL.

Please let me know your plans for this project, Zeeshan. Maybe you could do a lot of recording this week.

Hi Amy!

I've put the names of the individuals poets into the section titles so that readers would be able to figure out which poets are included. Also, I realized that in the recordings for the first three sections I've been saying "Chapter One," "Chapter Two" etc. in the introductory part. I've been wondering if I should say "Section One" instead, because of how short the poems are. Please let me know if this is okay, and I can go ahead and make the changes.

Merci beaucoup,

Zeeshan

Hi Zeeshan!
I agree that Section instead of Chapter would be better, or you could say Poem. I am glad you put the names of the poets in the section titles. That will be great for the listeners.
I look forward to listening to them all.
Thanks,
Amy :)

Hi Zeeshan,
I proof listened the introduction. Please update this file so that it says introduction instead of chapter zero at the beginning and end.
It is fine otherwise.
Thanks!
Amy :)
