Sapre Sangrahalaya Archive
Just discovered that I will may need to go to Bhopal for my research. There’s an archive of old newspapers there (the link, which is only in Hindi).Please, someone, tell me something good about Bhopal so I don’t dread this so much.
Only a handful of articles have been published about this archive. There’s next to nothing online except an offhand mention that they have Hicky’s Bengal Gazette. I discovered this archive at random via Proquest—challenging my assumptions that only two copies of Hicky’s Bengal Gazette existed in the world.
If I can access this archive, I will be the only scholar to my knowledge who has used it for Hicky’s Gazette. Who knows what I will find?
I can only imagine the scenes of fresh hell I am to experience.
