The Chitrolekha Magazine is being converted into a full-fledged scholarly journal soon. So, we close this series of publication that had started in 2011. We will not accept any submission of article till further announcement. All the contents of the previous series will remain in archived and retrievable condition. Please wait for the new journal in new avatar. We sincerely thank all the readers, authors, editors, support staff and well-wishers. We started the magazine with the special aim of promoting the art and craft of Bengal. But unfortunately, we did not get appropriate responses from the people who are in charge of arts and crafts. We will start a new journey with new editorial staff and system and focus. So good-bye from the old team. Best wishes for all of you...
