Centenary celebration

9th July 2022

Speech by the Chief Editor & Publisher

Atideb Sarkar

Ladies and gentlemen,

Thank you for sparing your time to attend ABP’s centennial. We are deeply grateful for your presence.

The occasion might lead some of us to Mahadeb’s teashop on Prafulla Sarkar Street, some to the Press Club in Delhi, and some to the halls of Parliament. In each place, we might hear the question: "Who does ABP serve?" I will attempt an answer.

ABP serves ordinary Indians, not their rulers. It does so through the heroism of its people, especially in crisis.

This is a year of significant centenaries in media and publishing. The Reader’s Digest1 and Foreign Affairs2 magazine turn one hundred. Time magazine enters its hundredth year3. It is a hundred years since the BBC’s first radio broadcast4. It is a century since Eliot’s Waste Land5 and Joyce’s Ulysses6 were published.

In 1922, German democracy was straining under hyperinflation as the American economy boomed. Mussolini seized power in Italy. As the British Empire passed its high noon, Ireland won self-rule in January7.

In March, Gandhi was arrested during his non-cooperation movement in India8.

As Calcutta celebrated the festival of colours, a Bengali evening paper was first published and, in red ink, lent support to Gandhi’s cause9. The British saw not the red of Doljatra but a warning of danger101112.

Twenty five years later, Anandabazar Patrika’s Silver Jubilee coincided with the year of India’s independence. An editorial celebrated the success of the freedom movement and the paper’s emergence as one of its leading voices13

By 1972, the challenge before the Indian press was soon to be the defence of its freedom14. The paper was among the country’s largest by circulation15. During his Golden Jubilee address, Asoke Kumar Sarkar, then Chief Editor, said the paper had grown because it had served its readers, not the powerful16.

Speech by Prof. Amartya Sen

আনন্দবাজার পত্রিকার আবির্ভাব নিয়ে কলকাতায় ‘Englishman’ কাগজে চিন্তার বড় প্রশ্ন তোলা হয়েছিল। ১৯২২এর ১৪ই মার্চ, Englishman জানান যে কলকাতায় একটি নতুন দৈনিক পত্রিকা শুরু হয়েছে। তার সমস্তটাই লাল কাগজে ছাপা। আনন্দবাজারের জন্মদিন আনন্দের দিনই ছিল। মার্চ মাসে দোল পূর্ণিমার দিনে সম্পাদক প্রফুল্ল কুমার সরকারের পরিচালনায় রক্ত বরণের কাগজে গুরুত্বপূর্ণ বিষয়ে আলোচনা হয়। বিষয়বস্তুর মধ্যে ঝগড়া ঝাঁটি ছিল না। শুধু ঘোষণা করা হয়েছিল যে, আনন্দবাজার পত্রিকা বাঙ্গালীর মিলন কেন্দ্র হবে।

যদিও ‘Englishman’ এই রঙচঙে পত্রিকাকে ‘colour like a danger signal’ বলে বর্ণনা করেছিলেন। তার মধ্যেও দেশের সমস্যাগুলি নিয়ে ভাবনার প্রয়োজনীয়তা স্বীকার করা হয়েছিল। সেই চিন্তার প্রয়োজনীয়তা সত্যিই কম ছিল না। আজকে ১০০ বছর পূর্ণ হওয়ার দিনে আমাদের ভাবতে হবে নতুন কোনো চিন্তা ভাবনার প্রয়োজন আরোও গুরুত্বপূর্ণ কি না। ১৯২২এর সময়ের সঙ্গে আজকের দিনের পার্থক্য খুবই বড় রকমের। দেশ স্বাধীন হয়েছে অনেকদিন হল। স্বাধীনতার সময় আমাদের যে আশা ছিল তার অনেকটাই পূর্ণ হয়েছে এমনটা বলা যায়। কিন্তু ঘাটতির মাপও কম নয়।

১৯২২এর সময়ে অনেক ভারতীয়কেই জেলে যেতে হয়েছিল। আমার নিজের আত্মীয়দের মধ্যেও রাজনৈতিক কারণে জেল খাটতে হয়েছিল অনেককেই -- তাঁদের মধ্যে কিছু লোক আনন্দবাজারে এবং হিন্দুস্তান স্ট্যান্ডার্ড-এ কাজ করতেন। আমার জীবনের প্রথম স্মৃতির মধ্যে খুব অল্প বয়সে তাঁদের জেলে দেখতে যাওয়ার অভিজ্ঞতা বেশ বড় রকম ছিল। প্রধানত চল্লিশের দশকে। আমি তখন তাঁদের প্রশ্ন করতাম যে, আইনগত অপরাধ ছাড়াই লোককে জেলে দেওয়া কী কোনোসময় বন্ধ হবে না? তার উত্তরে শুনেছিলাম, দেশ স্বাধীন হওয়ার আগে বোধ হয় বিনা অপরাধে কারাবাস বন্ধ করা যাবে না।


Ananda Purashkar.

Awarded by the house of Anandabazar, this prestigious annual literary award felicitates the best in contemporary writing. Its beginnings can be traced to a comment made by Annada Shankar Ray in 1957, where he rued the absence of an award felicitating literature. Those present when he voiced his concerns included Asoke Kumar Sarkar and Tushar Kanti Ghosh, who were spurred into action. Four annual awards for the best in literature were immediately instituted. Anandabazar Patrika, Hindusthan Standard and Desh jointly awarded two of the awards while the other two were instituted by Amritabazar Patrika in association with Yugantar.

On April 20, 1958, seven poets and writers were felicitated, in an event marking the beginning of a new era in Bengali literature. Anandabazar Patrika and Desh jointly gave away two awards called 'Ananda Purashkar' in memory of Prafulla Kumar Sarkar and Suresh Chandra Majumdar, the founders of Anandabazar Patrika. Bibhuti Bhushan Mukhopadhyay and Samaresh Basu were the first awardees.

In 1960, Pramathanath Bishi, the author of Keri Saheber Munshi was bestowed the 'Prafulla Kumar Sarkar' award.

Celebrating the birth centenary of Rabindranath Tagore in 1962, Pulin Behari Sen was awarded the 'Saralabala Sarkar Smriti Purashkar'.

In 1972, to commemorate 50 years of Anandabazar Patrika, special awards were given to Buddhadeva Bose, Santosh Kumar Ghosh and Samaresh Basu. Celebrating the golden jubilee of Desh magazine in 1984, Sukumar Sen, Sagarmoy Ghosh and Bimal Mitra received the 'Asoke Kumar Sarkar Smriti Ananda Purashkar'.

All the above awards put together amalgamated into the 'Ananda Purashkar' in the year 2000.



Sharad Arghya.

In accordance with the brand mission of Anandabazar Patrika which emphasises on providing 'entertainment' in addition to news and views, 'within and beyond the print medium', the need for the brand to have expressions beyond the actual newspaper is the principal reason for the Anandabazar Patrika events.

Anandabazar Patrika first appeared on March 13, 1922 — the day of Holi, as an evening daily, printed in red ink. It was a four-pager, priced at two paise and had a first-day circulation of a thousand copies. The newspaper's red ink led to the contemporary English daily, The Englishman terming it a 'danger signal'. With its unshakeable patriotic stance, it soon became very popular.

Unbiased views, constructive criticism, indomitable courage and an uncompromising attitude were just a few aspects, which went on to make Anandabazar Patrika the 'voice of Bengal'. Its popularity reached new heights when, in 1954, the Press Commission report declared Anandabazar Patrika to be the largest circulated newspaper in the country, published from one location.

The No.1 Bengali daily is published from various locations today. Spawning a veritable legion of journalists, Anandabazar Patrika boasts of dedicated readers, worldwide. It is the only Bengali daily to cross 1.2 million in circulation.

Over the years, Anandabazar Patrika has achieved many milestones along the way — it was the first in the east and one of the first in the country to use offset printing. Anandabazar Patrika's landmark coverage on, among others, Rabindranath Tagore's death, Netaji's miraculous escape from detention, Mahatma Gandhi's death and the Nandaghunti expedition (a project patronised by the ABP Group itself) is legendary.
