Purogamana Kala Sahitya Sangham

Purogamana Kala Sahitya Sangham (Progressive Arts & Literary Organistaion) an Association for Art and Letters, also known as the PuKaSa, is an organization of artists, writers and art and literature enthusiasts based in Kerala. The association was formed on August 14, 1981, under the leadership of Malayalam poet Vyloppilly Sreedhara Menon. The origins of the PuKaSa can be traced back to the Deshabhimani Study Circle which existed in the 1970s, and before that to the Kerala Jeevatsahitya Sangham which was initiated in 1937 by a few left-leaning Congressmen, led by E. M. S. Namboodiripad.
