Listen to the voice of the revolution

Pragati will be available in a specially produced podcast edition, from April 7th onwards. It will provide a broad overview of the articles in the month’s issue of Pragati. Mohit Satyanand, your host, will read out key segments from the articles. You’ll be able to listen to the podcast online or download the podcast in MP3 format.

Here’s a sample track Mohit recorded last month. The purpose was to make sure that the technology works as intended. Unlike the the podcast edition of Pragati here he just reads one article from last month’s issue.
