Puzha.com is the first Malayalam online magazine, founded in 2000,[1] by Thomas Theakanath, Jeo Kurian, Harish Pillai, Shaji Thomas and KS James, that features original short-fiction, poetry, reviews, interviews and columns and it has since become the leading outlet for emerging writers in Malayalam language. Puzha.com is also credited with making little magazines across Kerala available to a wider audience and archiving of local (traditional and to some extent tribal) knowledge base and folklore of Kerala. In 2007, Puzha.com received the prestigious Manthan Award[2] for its dedication to the advancement of Malayalam literature, development of language tools and archiving and preservation of local knowledge base and folklore of Kerala.


Since its inception, Puzha.com provided a publishing platform for emerging Malayalam writers. The original works of short-fiction,novels, poetry, reviews and other articles were sourced and edited at the Aluva office and published on a daily basis. However, a lot of leading Malayalam writers also regularly contribute the Magazine.[citation needed]
