[B, Sarkar and P. Singha are going on posting and interacting on Facebook timelines. H.S. Ghosh is writing letters to Bengali dailies.]

Academia.edu

 

They are now displaying some 63 papers and 12 drafts 15 books (actually 15 chapters of a book) and 3 teaching documents uploaded by BS.

Over 54 million academics have signed up to Academia.edu, adding 19 million papers. Academia.edu attracts over 36 million unique visitors a month. We see this fast growing global association very useful for uploading and propagating world socialist ideas which are being viewed by many. So our comrades should make use of this scope.
