The Purankos project is a painstaking effort undertaken by Dr. Nrisinhaprasad Bhaduri, noted Indologist and author, to compile a Bengali encyclopedia on terms from the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the major Puranas. The work will be published in several volumes, the first of which is already out. Now, in order to make the fruits of this invaluable piece of work available to a larger audience, the team at DGRF aims to translate the entire work into English, keeping in mind that some Vedic terms are untranslatable and would lose their essence if reinterpreted in plain English. The translated text will be made available online, with the look and feel of standard web encyclopedias. The original bibliography used in compilation of the original Bengali encyclopedia will be used as is.
