Dasi (Calcutta, 1892-1897)

This periodical began as an in-house publication of Dasasram, a residential work house for poor and hapless women, which Ramananda Chattopadhyay had joined. As a part of its advancement, he planned to publish a monthly periodical to help in the campaign for fund raising for the house and to spread the cause of social work in the country. This periodical contains articles on the pertinence of social work and service for the poor from a religious point of view. Fiction literature, along with essays on religious and social issues relating to women and family, also appeared in Dasi. The day-to-day activities and the annual report of the rehabilitation centre were also published.
