About Krittibas

Krittibas is a Bengali poetry magazine that first appeared in Kolkata in 1953. It played a highly influential role in the Kolkata literary scene in the decades after Indian independence, and provided a platform for young, experimental poets, many of whom went on to become luminaries of modern Bengali poetry. The editors of the inaugural issue in July 1953 were Sunil Gangopadhyay, Ananda Bagchi and Dipak Mazumdar. Gangopadhyay later became sole editor, and indeed it is his name that is most closely associated with the magazine. Others who also edited the magazine at one point or another included Shakti Chattopadhyay, Sarat Kumar Mukhopadhyay and Samarendra Sengupta.The Phanishwarnath Renu issue of the magazine was edited by Samir Roychoudhury. During 1961-65 several poets left the magazine and joined the Hungryalist Movement. Originally published as a quarterly, Krittibas became a monthly magazine in 1974. Besides promoting Bengali poetry - always its main focus - it also featured articles on various aspects of contemporary arts and culture. Publication ceased altogether in 1982, and the magazine disappeared from the scene for many years. Then in 1999, Krittibas was reborn, this time as an annual magazine. Soon it became a bi-annual journal, and plans are afoot to turn Krittibas into a quarterly again
