Last week’s episode of Gudi Padwa/Ugadi received a great response, thanks for your support! It also happened that the gaatha story website was undergoing an upgrade on the very day that episode was published, so some of you might have seen the dreaded “Page Not Found” error. We are really, really sorry for that.
The good news was that we were able to publish one story in FOUR episodes. The bad news is that this week, our episode of Myths, Legends and Fairytales of India Podcast took off on a sour note. We accidentally published the un-edited file, and by the time we realized this, over 300 listeners had already heard the episode 🙁
With those oop’ses behind us, we are now able to focus on new episodes for this week onwards.
