Cikitsa-sammilani (Calcutta, 1885-1894)
Printed by Sharat Shashi Jantra, 227 Cornwallis Street, Calcutta.
This monthly journal on medicine is one of the earliest of this kind in Bangla, where all the three disciplines of medicine prevalent in India, Allopathy, Homeopathy and Ayurveda, were represented. Debates on differences in these three disciplines of medicine were also published. All the editors and contributors of this periodical were celebrated medical practitioners of the time. Annadacaran was a noted allopathic doctor, while Abinascandra and Sitalcandra were famous ayurvedic doctors of that time. Detailed case histories of the patients and lines of treatment were published in this magazine. The health and health education policy of the government were also reviewed and criticised in this periodical. The idea of introducing Ayurveda as a discipline in the medical institutes by the government was strongly advocated in this periodical.
