 Library

The university is in the process of building up its library. A search for quality books and reference material is on. The university proposes to procure books, periodicals and texts in journalism and mass communication authored by experts and academicians besides books on other subjects in social sciences, general knowledge and awareness, reference books and those which would help the young minds to think independently, critically and make them aware of the best practices in India and the world.

 

We are happy to inform you that the HJUJ library has procured the first ever reprint of “Harijan”, now available in a set of 19 volumes.

 

Published by Navajivan Trust in 19 volumes, this unique collection of facsimile edition of "Harijan" has all the issues which had come out between 1933 and 1956 in 8,400 pages--a treasure trove for scholars and researchers on Gandhi as a communicator!

 

Gandhi ji started "Harijan", "Harijanbandhu" and "Harijan sevak" in English, Gujarati, and Hindi respectively in 1933. These "views papers"(As he himself referred to them) were the vehicles of the Mahatma's crusade against untouchability and poverty in rural areas.

 

Though started with the intention of involving the masses in the fight against untouchability, "Harijan" evolved into a unique journal. "Harijan made more news than it reported. It was not a party organ, yet it became the most influential journal involved in the movement for India's Independence"!

 

The publication of "Harijan" was suspended in 1940 and was completely suppressed by the authorities by 1942. It resumed publication in 1946 and continued even after Gandhi ji's assassination in 1948. 

 

It is interesting to note that Mahatma was never the editor of "Hairjan". Its first editor was R.V.Sastri, followed by Mahadev Desai, K.G.Mashruwala, Pyarelal and Maganbhai P.Desai. 

 

"I realized that the sole aim of journalism should be service. The newspaper press is a great power... It can be profitable only when exercised from within"(Autobiography, Part IV, Chapter 13).
