From the Publisher:
Anandamela is the most widely read Bengali children’s magazine. With an enduring appeal across genders and age groups, it continues to celebrate the glory of companionship with its readers during their growing-up years. From science to sports, fiction to comics, adventure to astronomy — the magazine caters to the needs of a child’s psyche.
Though the magazine was launched in April 1975, its roots can be traced back to ‘Anandamela’ — the children’s section in Anandabazar Patrika, as early as 1940. Its sheer popularity kicked off the launch of Anandamela — the magazine. The noted film-maker Satyajit Ray, also a celebrated graphic designer of his time, designed its masthead.
Anandamela’s features range from short stories to novels, poems to comics, sports to science, crosswords to riddles and travel. Celebrated contributors include Satyajit Ray, Sunil Gangopadhyay, Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay among others. A range of characters such as Ray’s Professor Shonku and Premendra Mitra’s Ghanada shot to fame from the pages of Anandamela. Other characters include Sunil Gangopadhyay’s Kakababu, Samaresh Basu’s Gogol, Samaresh Majumdar’s Arjun, Bimal Kar’s Kikira and Moti Nandi’s Kalabati.
Anandamela has also been home to Saradindu Bandopadhyay’s Sadashiv and the foot-balling exploits of Roy of Rovers. The relaunch in July, 2003, presented a new-look, monthly Anandamela.
Anandamela was the first all-colour children’s magazine and the first to translate the immensely popular Tintin and Asterix into Bengali.
