‘Kalikātāra Kīrtana’(Kīrtana in Kolkata)

‘Kalikātāra Kīrtana’ (Kīrtana in Kolkata) was published in Sajjana Toṣaṇī Vol.11, issue 3 in 1899. Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura happily reports on the many kīrtanas going on in the city of Kolkata, but also points out how the citizens may be initiating kīrtana due to the plague, and have not fully understood the true necessity of kirtana. He also mentions the unfortunate use of foreign musical instruments, as well as modern tunes being introduced into kīrtana
