Listen up!

Shantiniketan by Bill Herbert: Bangla audio by Sampurna Chattarji

My first podcast ever, hence much excitement. While recording it, I realised how much easier it is to read to an audience than to a computer! Also how much the rendering of this poem depends on breath-pauses, constructed as it is as one long sentence. Hearing the echo of Bill’s rendering (in my mind) helped me pace it (I think). Happy listening.
