A project to digitise and encode in XML-TEI the manuscript of Michael Madhusudan Dutta’s Tilottoma Sambhaba Kabya, carried out by the students of the 2016-17 batch of the Post-Graduate Diploma course in ‘Digital Humanities and Cultural Informatics’ offered by the School of Cultural Texts and Records, Jadavpur University, Kolkata.
This poem is important as it is the first poem in Bengali to be written in blank verse.
The manuscript transcribed over here is from the collection of Michael Madhusuan Dutta’s patron, Joteendra Mohan Tagore. The manuscript was lent to the School of Cultural Texts and Records by Pramantha Mohun Tagore, a descendant of Joteendra Mohan Tagore and also a student in the ‘Digital Humanities and Cultural Informatics’ course.
This is a student project. We shall be grateful if you review and comment on this project. You can contact us at email@example.com
