Product Description 
puzha.com is an interactive web site dedicated to the advancement of Malayalam literature, development of language tools and archiving and preservation of local (traditional and to some extent tribal) knowledge base and folklore of Kerala.

The web site is maintained by a voluntary team spread around the globe and a dedicated team based out of Kochi, Kerala. Malayalam books can be ordered from the online bookstore associated with this web site, to anywhere in the world. puzha.com encourages readers to contribute their works. To publish online, puzha.com provides tools that are easy to use. With a mix of high quality content reviewed by editors and the content self-published by readers, and features to discuss the content, puzha.com is an attractive site for Malayalam literature and Kerala culture aficionados.

Founded in 2000 by two graduates from IIT, Bombay and doctoral student from Cochin University of Science and Technology, puzha.com dedicates one channel for publishing local folklore and knowledge base, in association with the Naattarivu Patana Kendram in Thrissur, who gathers and archives such valuable information which would be lost otherwise due to the diminishing power of traditional methods to preserve such valuable treasures of human experience and creativity, which have been carried forward through centuries. It is one of the exclusive of Kerala related content available on the Internet and set an example for other regions in India to follow.   
   
Citation 
Puzha.com is more than a home away from home for the Malayalees living outside Kerala. The initiative not only entertains, but is aware of its responsibility of preserving all that is gold for the future generations to carry forward the human zeal for excellence.

Its Classics channel publishes ancient Malayalam classics and works of prominent writers of yore. Kerala has a thriving culture of little magazines. puzha.com helps publishers of those little magazines to go online by letting them having a dedicated channel for their magazine. The Kids channel is a great source of kids stories and poems for Malayalees around the world who want to read stories to their children in Malayalam.

Innovation pays. Puzha developed its own language tools to facilitate the web site production and some of those tools like Chowara text editor and a Malayalam font are freely downloadable, which are popular with Malayalees. The Malayalam font Chowara is the first Malayalam font that is compatible with typewriter keyboard and that made it very easy to be used in large scale Malayalam text processing.
