Our Intent

Namashkar. Thank you for visiting our website, Bangla Readings.

Podcasts on english literature abound. We listen to these podcasts during our daily commutes, when exercising or cooking. We have little time to read a book or a magazine these days. This podcast is our way of promoting the bangla culture and its literature.

We will podcast bangla short stories, poems and novels. We will select the best, but perhaps not the most popular works. For example, everyone of us have read Saratchandra Chattopadhyay's Mahesh or Bindu'r Chele in school. Instead, we might choose to present "Kashinath". Or, we might present Rabindranath Thakur's "Shesh Katha" instead of "Khudito Pashan". We will present works beginning with Rabindranath Thakur to the new writers of today, in no particular order, as long as the work touches our hearts.

We also have a companion podcast where we present english translations of famous works in bangla. You can find the podcast at Bengali Readings
