The CLABIL project files are now ready for download - from the Esha blog

On the Esha Blog , some time ago, i introduced the CLABIL project - Central Library of Audio Books in Indian Languages - for the blind and the print impaired across the country.

We recently crossed over 100 audio files under the project, and have collaborated with Inclusive Planet for their entire set of user uploaded audio files.

You can download Esha files from the Esha blog starting now.  This link will have access to all the Audio files and other information about the CLABIL project.

All files are copyright free. Please feel free to use them for :
1. Blind Schools
2. Village Schools
3. Older people whose sight is not as good and who would still like to hear audio books.
4. NRIs who want their children to learn Indian stories but dont know where to go beyond Karadi tales et al.

And of course, if you can find time to record, please do record whatever you can.. and send it across. Just upload it as a google doc and share the link..

Thank you!

Sounds great. I listen to a lot of Indian/Punjabi music but truth be told I don't understand the words. I doubt Books on Tape in Indian would be any different. I do love me some Bhangra though.
