In a world of ephemeral magazines Anustup, a Bengali-language periodical, has recently completed the 50th year of its existence. Since its first publication in 1966 Anustup has worked with polymathic aspirations. Not limiting itself to the stereotype of little or big magazines in Bengali, it has encouraged thoughtful essays that cut across diverse disciplines. Anustup embraces formal scholarship as well as enlightened rebellion. It presents critical work that either breaks new ground or assembles standard research in exciting combinations. Published as a quarterly along with theme-based special issues from time to time, Anustup keeps expanding its readership and creates a distinguished taste.

Anustup is driven by a sense of social responsibility. In its early days the tumultuous seventies of the last century found reflection in its pages. Over the years the journal widened its horizons without shedding its fiercely independent character. It has raised its voice against social inequities and the anarchy of power but never made itself an organ for cheap iconoclasm and avant-gardism. In all its publications an ideological content is unmistakable. Anustup has established itself as the leading forum for liberal and radical thought in Bengali culture.

From the youthful little magazine emerged the larger enterprise of a publishing house, the Anustup Prakashani. Founded in 1970, it soon built up a model of parallel publication, as distinct from the traditional publishing establishment. Not only has it reorganized the oeuvre of the magazine on the more solid basis of selections and compendiums, it has grown as a publishing house in its own right. Its one hundred-odd titles in Bengali and English are some of the finest specimens of creative writing and original thinking over an encyclopaedic range of subjects. A list of our titles can be found on the page Publications of this website.

Anustup, the journal and the publisher, counts among its authors eminent scholars and thinkers. In the socio-political and cultural context it has had contributions from Debiprasad Chattopadhyay, Hiren Mukerjee, Samar Sen, Hemango Biswas, Sankha Ghosh, Sumanta Bandyopadhyay, Partha Chatterjee, Dipesh Chakrabarti, Gautam Bhadra, Sudhir Chakraborty, Amiya Bagchi, Arindam Chakrabarti, Sibaji Bandyopadhyay, and many other scholars of repute. Young and promising scholarship also finds in it an amiable host. In literature poets, novelists and short story writers like Birendra Chattopadhyay, Arun Mitra, Sankha Ghosh, Joy Goswami, Mahasweta Devi, Swapnamoy Chakraborty, Amar Mitra and Bhagirath Mishra are among past and present contributors and published authors of Anustup; and as in the field of scholarship new literary talent is recognized and given the exposure for development.

Anustup derives as much strength and prestige from its authors as from its readership. Its readers are spread across India and Bangladesh, and abroad; and respectable libraries and booksellers keep copies of its issues and publications.
