Sandesa (Calcutta: U. Ray and Sons, 1913-1926) –
later under the title Sandesa nabaparyaya (Calcutta: U. Ray and Sons, 1931-1936)

This monthly for young readers was published with multicoloured illustrations and had a wide circulation for a long period. Besides publishing fiction, it also contained information on natural sciences. This is an important periodical for the younger generation in the first half of this century.

After a brief pause of few years the same Sandesa was restarted from 1931 as a 'new series' under the title Sandesa nabaparyaya. The character and content remained the same as before.
