Sandhya, Songs of Twilight by Dhan Gopal Mukerji (1890 - 1936).

Quote:
Dhan Gopal Mukerji wrote Sandhya, Songs of Twilight while in San Francisco, as a way to support himself and pay for his college education. This collection of poems has several references to his homeland, India. In 1928, Mukerji was awarded the John Newbery Medal. ( Wikipedia and Anusha)

  • 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!

I saw this book in Carolin's list of poetry collections, and got very excited! I had fun with my last solo, also a poetry book, so I decided to do this one myself, after going through the poems, I could not NOT do it - they're lovely!

I plan to divide the 71 poems by Sections titled Poems 1 - 7, Poems 8 - 15, etc. Therefore 10 sections in total. Hope that's okay!

Also, should I leave out the ID tags?
Thank you! :D

alright, you are all set :thumbs:

did you plan to put the foreword into section 0? then you needed an extra section, 11 in total. i added that extra one, if you decide differently, i can always add or delete as necessary :)

and you can always fill in the tags if you like, but it isnt necessary :)

Hi Sonia!

Finally I have come around to tackling my own solo. :D

I have uploaded the first three sections of this collection, including the tiny one of the foreword. As promised, they're all within 10 mins.

Section 00, Foreword:
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/sandhya_00_mukerji_128kb.mp3
Duration - 01:25

Section 01, Poems 1 - 7:
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/sandhya_01_mukerji_128kb.mp3
Duration - 08:00

Section 02, Poems 8 - 15:
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/sandhya_02_mukerji_128kb.mp3
Duration - 07:44

Like last time, do let me know of any errors in pronunciation.
Hope you like these poems!
Thank you :)

Ah the project has started :) Glad to see you found some time. I have some notes, but I think there is really only one word that I would redo, all the others are negligible, since one can understand what is meant.

Note for Section 0:

> you did not mention Section 0 but simply “Foreword” but I guess that’s ok, since section 0 sounds a bit strange LOL
I'll mark it PL ok nevertheless.

I like the way you pronounce the Indian names, for example how ‘dh’ is pronounced, I can clearly hear the ‘h’. Since I don’t know anything about these languages yet, for it’s interesting to hear it from a native speaker.

Notes for Section 1:

> since you want me to point out pronunciations: “symbolism” is stressed on the first syllable, but it’s perfectly comprehensible nevertheless the way you said it. It even sounds very good like that. :thumbs:

> at 0:51: “Faith's candle lit” – I think you said “Fate” instead of “Faith” but I’m not sure. Probably negligible.

> at 6:48: you mispronounced “scythe”: the ‘c’ is not pronounced, it’s simply “sithe” – ryhming with “lithe”. Maybe you could re-do that line for better understanding ?

Another question: So this “poati”, what would it be ? A bit like sad weeping woman ? Or always a mother ? The explanation was a bit hazy. :hmm:

Note for Section 2:

> at 6:38: “viols” is pronounced with an “eye” sound for ‘i’. a bit like the word “vile”, only with a short ‘e’ in between: “veye-el”. Still, I understood the word, so I guess I can mark it PL ok. It’s up to you if you want to change it.

These poems are all very lyrical and highly emotional and you convey it excellently in your reading. I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for getting me to know this author. Looking forward to the next sections. :9:

Sonia

Hi Anusha

if I remember correctly, the PL notes from Section 1 were already corrected by you and PL ok by me before the crash... I hope you still have that file, because you probably need to re-upload it again. :help:

I don't have the file, but it wouldn't be too much of an issue for me to correct and upload it again.

Also, yes, I haven't forgotten this. I will get back to it soon!
