What began as a journal titled “Personae”, blossomed into a magazine called “The Creative Post”, blending the old and the new, in digital format. With the tremendous efforts of our Founder-Editor Smt Kankabati Dutta, the mother journal “Personae” had been released by the then Governor of West Bengal, Gopal Krishna Gandhi, the intellectual erudite writer, who also happens to be the direct grandson of Mahatma Gandhi. A galaxy of intellectuals, celebrities, writers and artists were associated with the project. Among them are, Legendary film maker Mrinal Sen, National award-winning directors Ashoke Viswanathan and Gautam Ghosh, artist Wasim Kapoor, authors like Late Naboneeta Debsen and Sunil Gangopadhyay, actor-writer Barun Chando (Hero of Satyajit Ray’s “Seemaboddhoh” with Sharmila Tagore as Heroine) sports legend Chunni Goswami and others. It was because they found the concept of the magazine significant, worthy and unique that they associated with it from the core of their hearts.
It is this legacy that lights up the path of “The Creative Post” in its new digital format.
The concept is that of a journal which fills a gap.
A single portal that is digital in nature – so you don’t have to cut the trees to read the information printed on them and you can have the content, just whenever you want. It covers every aspect of life except – Business, Politics, Religion and Sports.
It covers – Fine Arts, Literature, Performing Arts, Lifestyle, Travel, Food, Fashion Interiors etc. It covers reviews of all kinds (be it films, books, dramas or events), interviews people who dream and stops not till they achieve it. But more than anything, it covers content on all these subjects in manner which enriches as well as entertains.
At “The Creative Post”, entertainment is therefore not a cheap, sub-standard way of having fun. It’s the place where you learn and have fun on variety of subjects that make sense to your existence. The more you read, the more you understand what is life worth living for?
SAGA OF REGIONAL LITERATURE ART AND MUSIC
Little magazines are published all over the country in regional languages. Some of the cover designs, graphics, sketches, photographs other creative work and writings which appear in the pages of these journals are quite representative, significant, and of excellence. These mirror reality of different regions and are often distinct and original. We felt it would be worthwhile to present selective pieces from Pan Indian Little magazines for representation
