Kerala Sasthra Sahithya Parishad

The original objective at the time of the founding of Kerala Sasthra Sahithya Parishad (KSSP) was limited to publishing scientific literature in Malayalam, the local language, and popularizing science.

Kerala Sastra Sahitya Parishad claims to be a people’s science movement of Kerala, India. At the time of its founding in 1962 it was a 40-member group consisting of science writers and teachers with interest in science from a social perspective.

Over the past four decades it has grown into a mass movement with a membership over 40000, distributed in more than two thousand units spread all over Kerala.

KSSP is publishing two Monthly magazines,Sastrakeralam and Sastragathi and a biweekly, Eureka and also a newsletter parishad vartha.

The magazines are for children and the newsletter for members. Also KSSP's major contribution is in publishing science books in Malayalam, more than 700 titles already published.

Last year, KSSP conducted a survey of the living conditions in Kerala.

The survey was titled Kerala Padanam-Keralam engane jeevikkunnu Keralam Engane Chinthikkunnu, translated as 'Kerala Study-How does Kerala Live How does Kerala think.
