The year was 1975. The whole nation was under the grip of a declared Emergency.An underground publication appeared from nowhere with a revolutionary name Kurukshethra.
The name of that small booklet and its legacy was carried forward and the Kurukshethra Prakasan was borne as a publishing unit in 1992 in Ernakulam. As years passed by, Kurukshethra spread its wings slowly but magnificently. It has book centers in three main cities of Kerala viz Kochi, Kozhikode and Thiruvananthapuram. Kurukshethra Prakasan Trust is also a part of it.
Today Kurukshethra Stands out of the crowd as the most important publisher for Hindu Religious Books with more than a hundred titles in puranas and other hindu holy scriptures.
Kurukshethra Prakasan is the official publishers of the RSS in Kerala.Almost every book in malayalam from the RSS parivar is published by Kurukshethra Prakasan.
