Most of the headings and text that are displayed in Hindi are the same as being spoken out by the reporter. If you still think it is necessary to add them, I'll do the needful.

If the text is appearing for quite some time on the screen and nothing is being said at the time, I think it be good to have the english version of the hindi text. It is more friendly to non-hindi speakers.

Part 1 and 2 : added translation of headings and text, including the text displayed while something else is being said. You guys decide what to keep and not.
I've kept all of this in CAPS. These could be in different fonts and colours, depending upon on what youtube allows.

I've also added a few words and sentences as they were inaudible to me earlier. Also, every time I go through the data, better synonyms and appropriate words occur to me. I can't resist tweaking the translation.
I hope this is not too much trouble for Bala.

Wow, this is great! Great work, Swati and Azad. I see that parts 1,2 and 5 already have subtitles on youtube. Can Donatello or Bala please upload the subs for parts 3 and 4 as well? Also, whoever is doing this can re-upload subs for parts 1 and 2 because Swati has made corrections (isn't that right, Swati?).

When the videos are ready I would like to make a post on Nirmukta. We can then promote these videos by requesting RD.net, JREF and P.Z Myers to link to them.

I just uploaded all five anyway. Swati let us know if you make any changes to the subtitles and we'll upload them again on Youtube. Once you are satisfied with the subtitles, we can update on nirmukta and other places that Ajita said.

Oh no! Just completed part 4. The subs had to be synchronised with time line as Azad had translated them in his notepad earlier.

Please try to upload part 4 again. Thanks.

Hi all! We can give ourselves a round of applause. The subtitles have gone live, and the info has been posted on the Indian Atheists, and it is going to be bumped up further on some sites abroad too! Clap
