Kerala Sasthra Sahithya Parishad is a progressive social organisation in the state of Kerala, India. At the time of its founding in 1962 it was a 40-member group consisting of science writers and teachers with an interest in science from a social perspective. Over the past four decades its membership has grown to over 50,000 individuals, in more than 1,300 units spread all over Kerala. KSSP chose as its mission, the challenge of arming people with the tools of science and technology so that they can reverse this process of monopolizing the benefits of science and technology by a privileged minority. In 1974, KSSP decided to become a people’s science movement and adopted “science for social revolution” as its motto.
