Printed at Bangabasi Steam Machine Press, 34/1 Kolutala Street, Calcutta. This long-lived periodical is an important document on the initial activities and efforts of the first generation of Bengalee entrepreneurs in colonial India. Many of the articles published here are on the possibilities of exploring new areas of indigenous production and of capturing the market from European traders. The periodical was published from the house of 'Bangabasi' for its first seven years, and then transferred to some other publishing house. After the completion of its first decade, it gradually turned to a mouthpiece of Hinduism, during the years of the Swadeshi Movement. Trailokyanath Mukhopadhyay was one of the major contributors in its early days. He wrote essays mainly on the scope for small entrepreneurs to explore the local market despite budget constraints. Fiction and articles on spirituality published in this periodical are also significant. This periodical is one of the very few that continued for thirty nine years.
