Guided by Guru Nanak's philosophy and inspired by historical texts, "ALLEGORY, A Tapestry of Guru Nanak's Travels", the 24 episode docuseries have been created to sequentially present Guru Nanak's life and messages. Taking life risks, the team navigated through all the geographies visited by Guru Nanak. The docuseries has no commercial objective and has been made available free of charge on TheGuruNanak.com.
Ask & Cost
To increase the understanding of Guru Nanak's life events, in the next phase, the docuseries are to be translated into the Punjabi language which will cost USD 150,000. The editing for Punjabi translation is to start in December 2021 and will complete by May 2022.
We are seeking urgent attention from the 'Dasvandh' donor base to support this project as the editing team which has put together the entire 20 hour content of the English docuseries are the ones who have to see through the completion of the Punjabi version. If there are delays resulting in the disbanding of the present editing team, the costs of doing the Punjabi translation through a new team in the future will be prohibitive. We are dealing with over 50TB of data and therefore there is an urgency in our appeal. Either we achieve the next phase with the current team or it will probably not happen.
Like in the case of making the English version of the docuseries freely available, we remain committed to doing the same with the Punjabi version. The project will continue to have no commercial objective.
