Commentary

Suprobhat was an illustrated Bengali monthly journal of the early twentieth century. Edited by Kumudini Mitra, the journal was first published in 1314 B.S. (1907). Although primarily a literary journal, Suprobhat focused on history, society, religion, education, science, economy, and politics. The journal published poems, stories and novels, essays, commentaries, biographical accounts, travelogues, as well as musical notations, obituaries, and book reviews. ‘Somalochona’ (Book Reviews) and ‘Bhraman’ (Travel) were the journal’s regular sections.

 

The journal’s contributors included Anurupa Debi, Akhshay Kumar Boral, Indubala Debi, Kalidas Ray, Chandicharan Bandyopadhyay, Dinendranath Thakur, Priyambada Debi, Mankumari Basu, Jatindramohan Sengupta, Rabindranath Tagore, Lilabati Mitra, Satyendranath Datta, Sarala Debi, Hemedra Kumar Ray, and Hemlata Debi. Published articles included Atulbihari Gupta’s ‘Pathan Samranjyer Aboshan’ (Downfall of the Pathan Empire); Abanimohan Chattopadhyay’s ‘Baidik Juge Samajik Abostha’ (Social Life in the Vedic Age); Krishna Kumar Mitra’s ‘Namdeb o Tahar Upadesh’ (Namdev and His Teachings); Ganapati Ray’s ‘Chinbasiganer Opor Bouddha Dharmer Prabhab’ (The Impact of Buddhism on the Chinese); Prakash Chandra Mukhopadhyay’s ‘Bankurar Kathopokothoner Bangla’ (The Spoken Bengali of Bankura); Binay Kumar Sarkar’s ‘Bidyalaye Dharmashiksha’ (Religious Education in Schools); Sister Nibedita’s ‘Bharatbarsher Itihas O Tahar Adhyayan’ (The Study of Indian History); Muhammad K.

Relevant articles included Florence Smith’s ‘Narijatir Adhikar Sansthapaner Andolon’ (The Movement for the Establishment of Women’s Rights); Bipinbihari Chakraborty’s ‘Nari Jiboner Lakshay’ (The Objectives of Women’s Lives); Satyabandhu Das’ ‘Bangiya Oupanyashik Sahitye Mahila Kabir Obhab’ (Absence of Female Poets in Bengali Novels’); Hemlata Debi’s ‘Stri Jati Samparke Paramhangsha Swamir Abhimat’ (Paramhangsha Swami’s Opinion of Women); and Hemchandra Das Gupta’s ‘Chindeshiya Ramani Sambandhe Dui Ekti Kotha’ (A Few Words About Chinese Women).
