Pracara (Calcutta, 2 Bhabanicaran Datta Lane: Umacaran Bandyopadhyay, 1884-1888)

The monthly periodical was published with the ambition of “saving from superstition and ritual dependence”. Besides publishing essays on religion, social conditions and reform issues it also presented literature. Bankimcandra's Sitaram was first serialised in this periodical. In its first issue, the editorial note claimed women as its target reader, and promised suitable writings for them. Firstly, the journal was printed by People Press (78 College Street) and later by Heral Printing Works (10 Old Post Office Street).
