Spoken by 240 million people worldwide, Bengali Language is the seventh most spoken language in the world. Bengali is one of the richest languages in literature among all major languages of the world and is being constantly enriched by new, bright storytellers and poets joining the fold regularly. Unfortunately the literary activities in this language are mostly paper based, localised and costly and hence are inaccessible to most of the readers worldwide. (with a 240 Mn strong probable readers, a 1000-copy sale of a book is considered a huge success in Bengali publishing industry!!)
JOYDHAK is a mission to address this situation. Through this trimonthly periodical (https://joydhakweb.in) and our audiozine (https://joydhakweb.in/audiovisuallibrary/), we are trying to take the Bengali literature to the desktops and mobile screens of the Bengali population worldwide.
Started initially as a paper based magazine in 2000, Joydhak went to Web as an image based Bangla magazine in 2007 with technical assistance from Rohon Kuddus and his SRISTISUKH(http://www.joydhak.com), making it the first ever full scale literary Webzine for Bengali children. Subsequently, We have shifted to the unicode-compliant premium site https://joydhakweb.in at present we have an annual readership way above a hundred thousand spread in 67 countries. The earlier image based site http://www.joydhak.com functions currently as an archival site for issues older than five years.
From 2017 our sister concern “JOYDHAK PRAKASHAN”, a partnership Farm has been launched. Presently this concern is a thriving publishing house with a strong presence in all segments of Bengali printbook market.
