On 22 April 1883, revolutionary journalist- Radhacharan Goswami started publication of monthly “Bhartendu’ from Vrindavan. Naming the journal- ‘Bhartendu’ revealed his great respect from ‘Bhartendu Harishchandra”. This journal was full of amusing articles with satire-humour in punchamrit (mixture of milk, curd, ghee, sugar & honey) style and a full page of cartoons that took on the contemporary issues facing the society.

On 25 February 1859, he narrated his ‘general view’ in biographical monograph:
