About The Book

Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar is considered as one of the pillars of Bengal renaissance. He managed to continue the reforms movement that was started by Raja Rammohan Roy. Vidyasagar was a well-known author, intellectual and above all a staunch believer in humanity. He brought a revolution in the education system of Bengal. In his book, "Barno-Porichoy" (Introduction to the Letter), Vidyasagar refined the Bengali Language and made it accessible to the common strata of the society. The title `Vidyasagar`, (ocean of knowledge) was given to him, due to his vast knowledge in almost all areas. Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar initiated the concept of widow remarriage and raised concern for the abolition of Child-marriage and polygamy. He also opened the doors of the colleges and other educational institutions to lower caste. For his immense generosity and kind-heartedness, people started addressing him as "Daya Sagar" (ocean of kindness).
