On March 17, 1923, the evening despite being unusually calm considering the national mood then, a small building on the Robinson Road in Kozhikode was buzzing with activity. A group of people who dedicated their lives for the freedom of the country under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi were scripting history.

The team of Congressmen led by its state president KP Kesava Menon were about to print the first edition of the Mathrubhumi newspaper, which heralded a new chapter in the political and cultural life of the Malayalis.

As the media house is turning 100 years since its formation in 1923, we bring to you the story of Mathrubhumi.
