Investigating the emergence of Hindi publishing in colonial Lucknow, long a stronghold of Urdu and Persian literary culture, Shobna Nijhawan offers a detailed study of literary activities emerging out of the publishing house Ga?ga Pustak Mala in the first half of the twentieth century. Closely associated with it was the Hindi monthly Sudha, a literary, socio-political, and illustrated periodical. In charting the literary networks established by Dularelal Bhargava, the proprietor of Ga?ga Pustak Mala and chief editor of Sudha, this volume sheds light on his role in the development of Hindi language and literature, creation of canonical literature, and commercialization and nationalization of books and periodicals in the north Indian Hindi public sphere. PRINTED PAGES: 260.
