A New Beginning
Welcome to the new website of Visva-Bharati Granthana-Vibhaga, the publishing department of Visva-Bharati, Santiniketan. Founded by Rabindranath Tagore in 1923, the Granthana-Vibhaga has a fascinating history.

Rare is the writer who sets up a publishing house for his works. Rabindranath handed over the rights of his works to Visva-Bharati to help finance the fledgling institution. He was particular that his books should be well-produced and his writings properly disseminated.

The high standard achieved by Visva-Bharati Granthana-Vibhaga in book design -- the distinctive Visva-Bharati hallmark is still a force to reckon with.

As it enters the ninth decade of its existence, Granthana-Vibhaga is poised to launch several new initiatives including online sale of books as well as e-books through this website very soon. Stay tuned and meanwhile whet your appetite by browsing our catalogue!
