Description

First published in 1930, India To-morrow was a journal of Indian students. Closely connected to the All Bengal Students’ Association, it became an exponent of the Indian youth and student movement. The journal published poems, essays, commentaries, notes, reports, reviews, news, speeches, obituaries, and letters to the editor or correspondence. Articles on the student and youth movement constituted a regular feature of the journal. India To-morrow also carried reports on the proceedings of the annual All Bengal Students’ Conference. The journal also published reports on the aims and activities of the All Bengal Students’ Association. Two of the regular sections, ‘Notes’ and ‘Collections’, covered contemporary events and issues, while ‘News of the World’, a later addition, provided news and information about current affairs from across the world. The journal also published notices and examination results of important academic institutions of Calcutta – namely, the University of Calcutta and the College of Engineering and Technology, Jadavpur.

Authors who contributed to the journal included Mishtari-Savitri Ali, Gurudas Roy, H.W.B. Moreno, Harindranath Chattopadhyaya, and Govindlal D. Shah. The journal published articles on literature, history, politics, education, philosophy, international relations, economics, commerce, and sports. These included C.R. Reddy’s ‘Rural Service Work’; Rabindra Narayan Ghosh’s ‘Indian History and Indian Nationalism’; Debaprasad Ghosh’s ‘The Round Table Conference’; Dhirendra Nath Sen’s ‘Minorities Protection in Dominions’; Girija Mukherjee’s ‘Modern Literature’; Krishna Kumar Chaterji’s ‘The Conflict of Culture’; Sachindra Nath Mitter’s ‘Only the Youths Can Save the World’; Aswini Kumar Gupta’s ‘Cottage Industries vs Manufacturing Industries: The Case for Artisans in India’; and P.K. Mukherjee’s ‘Deterioration of Indian Football’. India To-morrow served the nationalist cause, publishing articles on contemporary political affairs and the national movement along with appeals from the nationalist leaders to serve the cause of the nation. For example, in its 23 November 1931 issue it carried an appeal from Jawaharlal Nehru to the young men and women of Bengal to join the Congress Volunteer organization.

During early 1932 the journal was faced with problems as its printer and publisher Sudhansu Bose, one of its associate editors Sachindra Nath Mitra, and one of its mainstays Sailendra Nath Mitra were all arrested due to their participation in the political agitation of the Civil Disobedience movement. The journal, in that context, began to appear without any editorial comment on current issues as it became impossible to express candid opinions in view of the punitive terms of the Press Ordinance.
