The Hindusthanee Student (October 1916)

The October 1916 issue of The Hindusthanee Student (Vol. 3, No. 1), published from the Nalanda Club in Urbana, Illinois. The issue begins by noting a change of address, from Berkeley to Urbana, and an apology for being unable to publish a September issue. Essays and editorials in the issue includes "Sir Rabindranath Tagore in Japan" by A.R. Seymour, "Hindusthan, A Melting Pot of Races" by Benoy Kumar Sarkar, part two of "Lingua Nationale Del Hind" by V.R. Kokatnur, "The Immigration Bill" by N.S. Hardikar, and a poem titled "The Genus of America" by Hemchandra Banerji translated by B.K. Sarkar. Hardikar's essay focuses on the Burnett Immigration Bill, passed by the House of Representatives on March 30, 1916, which contains a statement on the "Hindus" being among the "undesirable classes of aliens to be excluded from entry into the United States."
