Default Educational Playlist in Pashto - 08-09-2012, 03:32 PM

I'm thinking of creating a set of educational videos, in Pashto, where I can cover a wide-rang of topics. For instance, a Playlist on Pre-algebra(generally of 10-20 videos covering the frequently taught topics)Algebra, Pre-Cal, Single-variable calculus, Multi-variable calculus, Differential Equations, Logic, Combinatorics, Discrete Math, Probaility & Statistics, Foundations of Computer Science, Intro C/C++/Java/Python, and a few videos where the core of EE is elaborated and explained. I can also cover General Physics1,2(calculus based). What should our priority be? As most know, I am against the current school system of the South Asian system, that produces a ratafication filled parrot. By having these lectures in Pashto, students of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Afghanistan can catch up and not give up, it will also prevent our people from thinking a car can run on water only.



I look forward to your forward-thinking constructive criticisms.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

One of the hurdle, or dare I say stalemate, that I guess is preventing me, is my dialect of Pashto. Unless Tor_Khan or someone else whom I've spoken or met in person can confirm they can fluently understand the dialect of Pashto that I speak. I personally can envision myself having a hard time understanding Pashto lectures if they are recorded from someone in Waziristan in their Pashto dialect. I wouldn't want a Pashto dictionary searching for each lughat they used.

Consider me on board with you. I can prepare video lectures on variety of topics (in only Pashto)---Can get hold of other very able teachers and researchers.

It is a great initiative. We already have a number of video lectures on health related issues, physics, computer softwares uploaded to Youtube.

Fluency and smoothness in accent would be very helpful - some one with a central accent would be perfect, if you can find it.

I don't think the dialect issue would be too much of a problem.

Record it in your own natural dialect and possibly add Pakhto or English subtitles. If need be, you could just get someone from a different area to translate what you say in their dialect and have that dubbed over your video.


I think you should still do it regardless. It is better that some people benefit than none at all.
