   Udbodhan- the only Bengali mouthpiece of Ramakrishna Math and Mission, started by Swami Vivekananda in January 1899, stepped into its hundredth year in January 1998.

   Swami Vivekananda dreamt of Udbodhan to occupy a commendable position in contemporary Bengali literature and to induce the Bengali mind to positive and creative thoughts. His elementary essays - "Prachya O Paschatya" and "Paribrajak" were penned down in Bengali specifically for Udbodhan.Thus, Udbodhan appeared, not merely as another journal of a religious order. Following Swami Vivekananda's wish, various other subjects like philosophy, literature, history, sociology, science and technology, et all, even today, regularly find place in its pages. In its journey covering over a century, it has been the tireless endeavour of Udbodhan to live up to the mission of its founder.
