Gitanjali on your mobile

Mobile Edition : Edited & Presented by P.R.Harikumar

Since the last three years, I am in the making of more and more Indian solutions for mobile phones. As part of this mission I have made mobile editions of Ramayana in Malayalam and Thirukkural in Tamil. Then I presented India's first Phone novel (‘Neelakkannukal’-my own novel) in Malayalam and India's first Phone magazine in English. In last December, I directed India's first Pocket film- 'A boy in his time'.

Now I am releasing a new thing for the lovers of English poetry- a mobile edition of Rabindranath Tagore’s Gitanjali (English) for which he got Nobel Prize in 1913. By downloading this file into your mobile you can read ‘Gitanjali’ (English version) on your mobile screen. All the 103 songs are included in this edition.

This was made in the form of a Jar file with a size of 95KB. So give special attention to save this file as a Jar file in your “My Documents” folder and transfer it to the mobile phone via Bluetooth or Infrared. Any Java enabled phone is eligible for downloading this file. If your handset is GPRS enabled then you can download the file directly to your mobile from this page.

I think, this is for the first time a Noble Prize winning literary work comes into mobile. By this way, Rabindranath Tagore became the first Bengali writer who got a chance to appear in this modern gadget (Mobile phone) with his own creative work.
