PuKaSa is the Forum for Progressive Artists and Writers started in 1981 with a view to interfere and participate in the cultural sphere of Kerala and it's mother tongue, Malayalam. That is the Malayalam abbreviation of the name of the forum. The great and popular Malayalam poet Sri. Vailoppilly Sreedhara Menon was at the helm of the forum on it's formation.
If we look into the history of the forum, we can see that it started back in 1937 with the "Jeeval Sahithya Sangham". In 1944 it was restructured, elaborated and renamed as "Purogamana Sahithya Sanghatana". The forum "Desabhimani Study Circle" was organised in 1970. In 1981 the Purogamana Kalasahithya Sangham came into being. The forum's mission statement adopted at Perumbavoor in 1992 is known as "Perumbavoor Rekha". The Purogamana Kalasahithya Sangham has established it's pressence by actively participating in every development in the cultural arena of Kerala
