Background

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

The entire 24-episode series has been created in English & Punjabi. In the next phase, the docuseries are to be translated in Hindi, Urdu ad Shahmukhi which will cost USD 120K Hindi, 120K for Urdu and 40K for Shahmukhi.

The total cost of creating the Hindi version is USD 120K, of which USD 46K is the current gap. The current target represents what's outstanding for the Hindi effort after fundraising outside of DVN as well. To get there, anonymous donors will be matching a dollar for dollar of your contribution to raise USD 40K.

 

Your Impact

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 additional languages.

Like in the case of making the English & Punjabi versions of the docuseries freely available, we remain committed to doing the same with the other language versions too. The project will continue to have no commercial objective.

    Docuseries Released

    The 24 episode of the English docuseries is being released weekly on TheGuruNanak.com and is available as free narrative langar to the community.

    We have started the script translation and from Jan 2022 would like to start the editing of episodes to make the Punjabi version. We are trying to raise funding to plug the gap. The Dasvandh network appeal has not caught the attention of the sangat so we are exploring other channels. We remain confident to find sponsorship to complete the Punjabi version of the documentary series.
