Description

Quarterly mouthpiece of the Bangiya Sahitya Parishat (Bengal Literary Council), Sahitya-Parishat-Patrika was first published in 1301 B.S. (1894). Edited by Ramendra Sundar Trivedi and Nagendranath Basu in its early years and published from the Parishat office, Calcutta, the Patrika was a literary journal of high merit. It published poems, essays, literary critiques, grammatical notes, commentaries, lectures and speeches, biographies, book reviews, and obituaries. The journal’s contribution in the dissemination of knowledge on Bengali grammar and linguistics was immense.

In addition to its focus on literary themes, the journal encompassed the study of history, religion, philosophy, and culture. Some of the greatest contemporary writers contributed frequently to the journal, and included Satishchandra Bidyabhushan, Ramendra Sundar Trivedi, Rabindranath Tagore, Trailokyanath Bhattcharya, Satyendranath Tagore, Nagendranath Basu, Prafulla Chandra Ray, Bomkesh Mustafi, Abdul Karim, Tarakeswar Bhattacharya, Brajalal Mukhopadhyay, Srinibas Bandyopadhyay, and Ramesh Chandra Basu. Published articles included Haranchandra Bandopadhyay’s ‘Baidik Somalochona’ (Vedic Criticism); Jogesh Chandra Ray’s ‘Bhougolik Paribhasha’ (Geographical Terms); Haraprasad Sashtri’s ‘Bangla Byakaron’ (Bengali Grammar); Meghnad Bhattcharya’s ‘Rajputanay Gauriya Baishnab Sampradaya’ (The Gauriya Vaishnava Community of Rajputana), and Amulya Charan Ghosh Bidyabhushan’s ‘Bharate Lipir Utpatti’ (Origins of Script in India).

The journal published lists of rare and ancient Bengali punthis (manuscripts) with relevant excerpts. The Patrika also published commentaries on various aspects of Bengali grammar. Rabindranath Tagore himself wrote a number of essays on Bengali grammar in the journal. Occasionally, the journal provided long lists of Bengali words along with notes on the intrusion of foreign usages into the Bengali language. Even terms from the biological sciences were published in the journal. The editorial comments were mostly high literary expositions. The journal carried biographical accounts of Lala Jaynarayan, Kamalakar Bhatta, Krishnadas Das, Khona, Raghunath Shiromani and Budyadhar. The Patrika also published reports on the monthly meetings and annual conferences of Bangiya Sahitya Parishat.
