About Parabaas

parabaas, পরবাস
Parabaas was formed to promote Bengali literature and culture on the internet.The internet being a comparatively new technology confined mostly to the West, the presence of Bengali literature and culture is not that extensive in this medium – at least not as much as we would like it to be. The most painful absence is that of the Bengali alphabet.The primary reason for publishing the internet magazine, (or webzine) Parabaas, was to provide, for the nearly twenty thousand Bengali speaking netizens, an easy way to cultivate Bengali literature in the Bengali script.For the time being, the webzine, Parabaas, is our only effort in this direction.
