Pujobarshikis are a great flavor to the celebration of one of the biggest festivals on earth. Superlatives apart, pujobarshikis are also welcome because they represent a major literary event in the calendar of Bengali culture. Here is a platform for promising writers to enter the world of recognition and acclaim.
This year we are having a new addition to the already formidable array of pujobarshikis. It is titled ‘Somoy’ from the Mumbai-based Times of India group. TOI has tentacles in virtually every media branches, but it is surprising that it decides to come out with a pujobarshiki when it still doesn’t have a Bengali newspaper.
But then who knows ‘Somoy’ may be just the prelude before soon-to-come vernacular daily from TOI. And perhaps that too will be named, what else but ‘Somoy’. Watch this space.
