Virtual Meeting

This first session we will focus on the Bengali poem Gange Joar Elo Phire by Kavi Nazrul Islam.  As the group takes the form of an informal workshop, we ask that all attendees send us their contribution (translation, reflection, or anything else they want to share) by 4:30 pm on the day of the workshop. There are rough Hindi and Urdu versions of the poem in the document attached. Don't feel obliged to produce a poetic translation, or a written translation at all—any kind of response is welcome, we just ask that you bring something; and don't hesitate to reach out if you've got any questions about the process.
