Bharatabarsa (Calcutta, 201 Cornwallis Street: Gurudas Chattopadhyay and Sons, 1913-1953)
The voluminous long-lived periodical is witness to the social history of Bengal for a period of more than fifty years. Bharatbarsa was established by Dwijendralal Ray allegedly to counter the influence of Rabindranath Thakur in the field of Bangla literature. But D.L. Ray died after two months of its publication and Jaladhar Sen took up the responsibility of the journal. This long series became a platform of experimental Bangla literature, besides commenting on some important moments of Indian history both in the pre- and post-independence period. A very important periodical for the literary history of modern Bengal.
