Last few days, I was thinking a lot about promoting Bangla literature more in internet. The easiest solution came to my mind was that many people should open blogs on Bangla literature in English language. This is the best way and they should all try to right something and whatever they can do. Even if you can translate just one short poem or write one hundred words about any poet or a novel or a drama of Bangla literatures then it helps. Don’t get discouraged if you see that it is not bringing you any money or does not make you famous. It does not matter because reality is that you have to do it not for earning money but for promoting your own literature.
I live in
and even I did not study Bangla literature. In fact, I studied English literature and then English language teaching from English department of Dhaka, Bangladesh . However, since I love my country and my language, I opened this blog four years ago. It is not that I have done a lot of things but in this blog, we have written about Michael Madhusudan Dutta, Sharat Chandra Chatterji, Syed Mujtaba Ali and so on. We translated some short stories and we translated some poems. You can do the same thing by just giving small amount of time. Dhaka University
For this blog, I never give time seriously simply because it does not bring any revenue for me. However, I gave small amount of time whenever I could and this way now we have small but good materials on Bangla literature.
You may wonder why not open a website but open a blog? The best part of opening a blog is that thanks to Google it is free and you don’t need to have any technical knowledge. All you need is just a free Google account and then the rest is very easy. Just simply go to blogger.com and then sign up for a blog. It takes around five minutes and it is very easy to do.
After opening a blog you don’t need to have any technical knowledge or you don’t need to maintain the website. All you need is that sometimes write some content and then put in it. If you do not want to maintain a blog then there is another way.
In Wikipedia, there are many entries in Bangla language and English language on Bangla literature. You just can add two or five sentences whenever you can. This will be very helpful if you can do so because Bangla has one of the richest literatures on earth. But unfortunately very few people outside ofYes, we are proud of Tagore but people from other countries hardly know anything about our writers and poets except Tagors. This must change and because we live in the age of Internet, we all can contribute.
Bangladesh and West Bengal of know about it. India
