I think the English is okay. Then what is the problem? why I facing trouble to clear the QAP frequently of this article?
I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Alaka Das- A devoted Soul of Classical Music (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!
Try to change your title.It is too complicated so boring to read the whole article use simple language.Music is a platform where you can try to convey many things like ragas, and so on.Well, i am not an expert to comment about your English still you can improve it.
That is it....Carry on All the best have a great day
The English is NOT ok. There are many mistakes. The writing style is good, the title is fine and the Hub is informative, but the mistakes spoil it. Look at your first sentence:
"Legend has it that in the middle of 16th century, Classical musician Ramtanu Pare ( Mia Tansen) and Baiju Bawra matched their voices at a recital in Agra."
Three mistakes - "16th century" should be "the 16th century" and "Classical" shouldn't begin with a capital C; it's "classical". Also remove the space before "( Mia Tansen)".
And that's just the first sentence.
Good! You fixed the sentence. I want to see this Hub do well because it could be a great Hub, and I like the subject, too, so here's some more help.
The title is fine for HubPages QAP, but you really need to start with Alaka Das because that's a very important keyword for this Hub. That's what people will put into search engines when looking for info on Alaka Das.
Alaka Das: a Pioneer Artist of Classical Music in Bangladesh
Now the next sentence:
"Tansen opened with todi, spend some minutes into the raga, a herd of deer came running in the musician’s direction and stood transfixed by his voice."
As far as I know, "Todi" is always capitalised.
"Tansen had opened with Todi and spent some minutes into the raga when a herd of deer came running in the musician’s direction and stood transfixed by his voice."
and the next...
Since then, the raga has been represented in visual art, especially in rajasthani miniature paintings, as a woman in a forest, holding a sitaar, surrounded by deer."
That's a terrific sentence, and it only has two small problems. Rajasthani needs a capital R. Sitaar is spellled sitar in English. "Sitaar" isn't a mistake as it's not an English word and you could claim "sitaar" is equally correct, but it's almost always written as "sitar" in English. That's the spelling people will enter into search engines - so don't miss out.
Thank you very much. I am applying all this necessary changes in the article. Hope, Now, it will pass the QAP.
Well that's just the first paragraph, so don't get your hopes up just yet.
The 2nd paragraph is good and descriptive, but here are the mistakes:
" Suddenly, the sky drizzled and rain started to flow "
The rain started to fall, not flow. As for " the sky drizzled" - it's gramatically correct but not right as it's not the sky that drizzles. I'm not sure how you should fix that - I would reword it completely, BUT, you can use it as it is, in a metaphorical way like you did with Alaka Das cajoling the pancham. It's up to you.
The last two sentences should be combined into one, and as Alaka Das is a woman change "his" to "her".
Thank you very much. I wonder how I wrote "his" instead of "her". Waiting for a lot of feedback from you.
The fix you made to the sky and drizzle hasn't worked. I would get rid of it completely - and you should still join the last two sentences in that paragraph.
Suddenly, a light rain started to fall. A murmur rippled through the audience, but Alaka kept up with her taans, oblivious to this unexpected visitor.
I am waiting for your valuable feedback. Please assist.
You've had some very valuable help already, but the bottom line is that you need to improve your level of English, and it's not reasonable to expect someone to correct every little mistake free of charge.
You must be able to write fluent English to be successful here, or have a good editor willing to work with you.
You've been waiting for me? I don't actually live on HubPages, I live somewhere else, in the real world.
Ok - here's some more help, but Marisa is right. You need good English for this site. If you can't see the problems, how are you going to do future Hubs?

Ok - that's about all I can do. If you make those corrections, the English will be good enough for publication and to be featured. If it's not published, then there must be some other reason.
I am grateful to you.....
I will remain grateful to you....
Thank you very much. I will take care about this issues in future while writing other hubs.
No problem, and I see your article is now published and featured. Success!
Yes. My article is published now. Thank you very much. Without your help, it wouldn't be possible. Thank you again.
