History of Broadsheet Paperback Bengali Newspapers
The Gram Barta Prokashika is known to be the first Bangla newspaper (a kind of weekly magazine) edited by Kangal Harinath Majumder at 1863 with the help of local Hindu Zamindars. The gram barta prokashika was just building awareness to the local people rather than publishing mainstream news. It is worth mentioning that, the initial attempt of those Bengali papers were heavily inspired by English newspapers.
In the 18th century, Bengal Gazette and Somachar Dorpon came in and become popular in elite Bengali community in Indo-Bangla subcontinent. Then Kazi Nazrul Islam and Muzaffar Hossain started Daily Nabajug. In the 19th century, specifically at 1936 Sher-E-Bangla inaugurated Dainik Azadi which is probably very first Bangla newspaper that was widely accepted in the Bangla community of the sub-continent.
And the race has been continued. Lots of new bangla newspaper started their journey after that and lots have postponed their publication. Lets find a list which is very popular these days and publishing news actively.
