The Malayalam Manorama was founded on March 14, 1888 by Kandathil Varghese Mappillai.  A joint stock publishing company, destined to acquire the status of the first joint stock publishing company of Republic of India, was incorporated by in 1888 by Kandathil Varghese Mappillai at Kottayam[third-party source needed], then a small town in the Kingdom of Travancore, currently, a part of Kerala state, India. The first issue of Malayala Manorama was published on March 22, 1890 from the press owned by Malankara Metropolitan Pulikkottil Joseph Mar Dionysious II of the Syrian Orthodox Church. The name Malayala Manorama was chosen by the poet, Raghavan Nambiar, Villuvarvattathu from Tiruvalla. Kerala Varma granted the symbol which is a part of the Travancore kingdom symbol. In a period of two years, from the date of incorporation until the publication commenced, the company witnessed several challenges[vague]. Presently, it also publishes several other publications, including the English news magazine The Week (the-week.com), the women's mag Vanitha (in Malayalam and Hindi), an information oriented monthly called 'Tell Me Why', a comic digest Balarama and the men's lifestyle magazine The Man (www.theman.in).
