brok3n shared a poem she found on her blog which I fell in love with. While I contemplated the merits of stealing it I realized that I didn't like that it was anglisized Urdu
(except my own limitations would have meant that I couldn't read it very well if it wasn't).

So I gave it some thought, and I stole the poem anyway! :P

Ps:
This is my first ever recording experiment.
Please to be forgiving mistakes.

ok u have a nice voice =) !! it has depth in it ....

and nice attempt... but i shouldn't be criticizing but i still think thori gehrai aur emotions is main aur honay chaiya hain...

Ps. Can u tell me what did u use to record this ??

Thanks! :) And I totally agree! This was the second time I read the poem (and recorded it), I should have spent some more time with it. Also felt really self conscious. I just used the regular sound recorder that's in the PC accessories thing. But it beat's anglisized Urdu doesn't it?!

Ubaid said...

yeah ... u were using a sort of accent in it... english touch in it... give it a try again but this time straight from your heart ... and when you're alittle low (:p) ....

seriously your voice would go with it ... just try again !!

anglisized urdu..haha seriously chica if my brother hadn't stolen my urdu software, I would've definitely given pure urdu a chance =p ....that was a good attempt though! You have a very mesmerizing voice mashAllah se. Tallafuz mein thori mistake thi...but I can't talk since my pronounciation barely gets me through the day.
