First edition of The Indian P.E.N.

Copy of “Why a P.E.N. Club in India?,” The Indian P.E.N. 1, no.1 (7 March 1934): 1. This is the cover page of the first ever The Indian P.E.N., the All-India Centre’s original internal editorial, which was first published in Mumbai on 7 March 1934. This issue introduced the All-India Centre (here referred to as the India Centre of the P.E.N.) and its reasons for being established, which focused particularly on uniting and promoting Indian authors writing in their own vernaculars and thus promoting the “fast moving mind” of India. The article also set out the Centre’s aims and objectives, methods for joining the Centre, and notes that the periodical would be distributed to members.
