In Bengali literature, it started with Kallol, a modernist movement magazine, established in 1923. The most popular among the group were Kazi Nazrul Islam (1899 - 1976) and Mohitlal Majumder (1888-1952), Achintyakumar Sengupta (1903-1976), Satyendranath Dutta (1882-1922), Premendra Mitra (1904 - 1988) and others. Then Bengali poetry got into the brightest light of modernism in 1930s, through the movement of few other little magazines, such as Buddhadeb Bosu's Kabita and Sudhindranath Datta's Parichay.
The Little Magazine explosion in West Bengal took place after 1961 when the Hungry generation Movement took the cultural establishment by storm. In fact it changed not only the publication gamut but also the naming of a magazine.
The Sahitya Akademi (Indian Academy of Letters) also publishes two literary journals, namely Indian Literature (journal) in English and Samkalin Bhartiya Sahitya in Hindi A prime example of this continuing tradition is the The Little Magazine, published from New Delhi since May 2000 , Civil Lines and Yatra
There is a Little Magazine Library and Research Centre at Tamer Lane, Kolkata, India which collects Bengali little magazines published from anywhere in the world. .
