Commentary

Established in 1844 by John Kaye and Alexander Duff (and still published bi-annually), The Calcutta Review was an English quarterly journal. Kaye and Duff were also the journal’s early editors. The journal published articles, poems, acts, notices, records, reports, book reviews and notes. The articles contained discussions on history, literature, religion, culture and medicine and public health.

 

Published articles included Rev. E.J. Robinson’s ‘The Daughters of India: Their Social condition, Religion, Literature, Obligations, and Prospects’; Sydney Roberts’ ‘The Kama Mystery: A Study in Comparative Dramatics’; Robert Needham Cust’s letter ‘A Judicial Trial during the Indian Mutinies, 1838’; Nakur Chandra Biswas’ ‘Brahmabaibartta Puran on Diseases’; R.B.’s ‘Hindu Castes among the Mahrattas’; E.H. Brookes’ ‘Legends of St. Thomas in South India’; K.S. Macdonald’s ‘The Sakta Religion and the Female Sex’; Benigum Rama Rau’s ‘The Suppression of Human Sacrifices among the Khond’; the anonymously written ‘Vernacular Literature in the North West Provinces’; V.A. Samarth’s ‘Famines in India’; and Poresh Nath Banerji’s ‘The Remarriage of Hindu Widows’. The journal also carried comments and excerpts from newspapers and journals such as Bombay Gazette, Madras Mail, The Indian Daily News, The Times of India, The Englishman and Amrita Bazar Patrika.

 

The journal published records, acts and reports of the colonial government. For example, the June 1861 issue of The Calcutta Review contained ‘Selections from the Records of Government Papers Relating to the Reforms of the Police of India, 1861’; ‘Act No. 5 of 1861, Passed by the Legislative Council of India’; ‘Report upon British Burmah. By R. Temple, Esq. and Lieut.-Col H. Bruce, 1860’; ‘Memorandum on the Colonization of India by European Soldiers. Punjab Records’; ‘Report of the Indigo Commissioners, 1860’; ‘The Nil Darpan Trial, 1861’; ‘Note by the Commissioner Charged by Government to Revise Civil Appointments and Salaries’; and ‘Report to the Secretary of State, India in Council on Railways in India, for the Year 1860–61, by Juland Danvers, Esq. Secretary, Railway Department, India Office, 1st May 1861’.
