    An Indian scholar has just finished translating Shakespeare's entire works into Punjabi. The translation has taken Surjit Hans two decades to complete, with the 82 year old declaring his people deserve to be able to study the great Bard's words themselves.

    Rock on Surjit Ji! Loved what he said in the last few seconds of the clip, with a smile. Ah, Sikhi! :)

    We have the news paper article version of this on a thread somewhere. The story is amazing. He deserves the Nobel Prize. Thanks for jogging my memory and for bringing this remarkable achievement to light.
