India is a beautiful assortment of diversity reflected in our Clothing, Food, Lifestyle, Language, Music, Books etc. This diversity is so rich and diverse that an attempt to capture it on a single platform was never made. Store.anandodhara.com is that sincere attempt by bunch of young insane guys and gals who think this is possible now with the Internet.
Anandodhara embarked on its journey with E Shudhu Gaaner Din on a starry March evening in Sydney, Australia in the year 1997. This ‘Stream of Joy’ was primarily ideated and created by Srimanta Mukherjee, the founder member who had long envisioned a melting pot of art and culture of the Indian subcontinent in Australia. He nurtured the dream of promoting Indian art and culture among the NRI as well as the diaspora of Indian subcontinent in Australia and New Zealand. We have been involved in organising literary evenings, musical events, painting and art exhibitions showcasing celebrities from India and Bangladesh belonging to the fraternity of art and culture alongside promoting the local talent, as a part of the initiatives by the Anandodhara Readers Forum. Over a span of 25 years, a global delivery framework has evolved through which we have successfully delivered periodicals, printed media books, and magazines across Australia and New Zealand.
As we moved forward on our noble purpose, we were humbled and overwhelmed to have the company of celebrated litterateurs like Sunil Gangopadhyay, Sirshendu Mukhopadhaya, Abdullah Abu Sayeed, Suchitra Bhattacharya, Samaresh Mazumdar, Harsha Dutta, Tilottama Majumdar, Dr. Nabakumar Basu, Apurbo Dutta, Subodh Sarkar, and Srijato, who blessed our initiative wholeheartedly.
At the dawn of the silver jubilee celebrations, our new agenda goes….
“Bring out the Unknown to the Known and make it WELL KNOWN”.
To begin with, we are focusing to introduce the rich traditional form of art and merchandise of India and Bangladesh to the global market. Our Readers Forum members in India have thus initiated a plan to highlight the rural artisans of the subcontinent and market their products through our online market store (AStore) with a hope to restore the near-to-extinct art and heritage.
The continuous flow of this ‘Stream of Joy’ is the result of sheer diligence, resilience, steadfastness, and determination of each of the members and volunteers, and last but not the least, the readers and patrons spread across the globe. We thank you from the very core of our hearts and welcome you all to share your valued opinions on the basis of which we believe, we could create more interesting footprints in the times to come.
Anandodhara – The Stream of Joy has blossomed over the span of 25 years in an organic and spontaneous way…
By The People, For The People, With The People.
TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR MEMBERS
We would like to congratulate Anandodhara for being in the horizon of the Australian-Bengali landscape for the last twenty-two years. Their presence has enriched the Bengali culture all around Australia. Besides supplying Bengali magazines, books and music CDs they have played a major role in inviting prominent Bengali authors, poets and intellectuals from both India and Bangladesh to Australia for many years. We are one of the foundation members of the Bangla Sahitya Sansad (BSS) in Melbourne and fondly remember the role Srimanta Mukherjee played in inviting the writer Sunil Gangluli to Australia in 2001. Sunil Ganguli’s visit to Melbourne initiated the formation of BSS. Since then BSS and Anandodhara (through Srimanta) have collaborated in the Overseas Author’s program each year.
We realise that with the recent catastrophes created by Corona and cyclone Amphan, the world of Bengali print magazines and books is going through a major shakeup. I am sure, in this changing scenario, Anandodhara will be able to discover a new pathway to enrich the cultural hunger of the Australian Bengali community. We wish them all the best.
Anondodhara has been serving us for the last thirteen years by providing Bengali magazine & books in Australia. They have been very active throughout the years in all festivals especially Durga Puja, Bengali New Year with newly published books & magazines from Dhaka & Kolkata. It would be impossible in overseas to enrich our Bengali heritage & culture without Anondodhara & people work behind the scene. Thanks, Anondodhara for your kind help & support. Hope to be connected you all for many more years.
