Courses on Bangladeshi literature introduced by West Bengal university

This is for the first time Bangladeshi literature has found a significant place in Bengali literary studies in India

Six full-length courses on Bangladeshi writers have been introduced by the department of Bengali Literature at the University of North Bengal in Siliguri, West Bengal, India. 

Though some Indian universities include a handful of Bangladeshi writers including Al Mahmud, Shamsur Rahman, Hasan Azizul Huq and Selina Hossain in their syllabi, it has not been significant in terms of scope and emphasis. This is for the first time Bangladeshi literature has found a significant place in Bengali literary studies in India. Through this initiative the longstanding disparity between the literature of West Bengal and Bangladesh in the curriculum of Indian academia, in terms of volume and importance, has been addressed to a large extent. 

According to university sources, the courses are “History of Bengali Literature in Bangladesh”, “Poetry”, “Story”, “Novel”, “Play”, “Memoir, Liberation War and Autobiography”. Books selected in these courses include:
