Vivekodayam was started in 1904 on behalf of S.N.D.P Yogam with Kumaranasan as its Editor. Apart from being the focus of the activities of the S.N.D.P Yogam it served as a forum for Asan’s literary persuits. Before long it developed into a literary periodical, and all lovers of literature, irrespective of caste or community hailed it as a welcome addition to the group of literary journals that were then in vogue in Malayalam. The very name “Vivekodayam”, was believed to have been given to the periodical in appreciation by Asan and other leaders of the Yogam as Swami Vivekananda, who during his visit to Kerala described it as a lunatic asylum as it was bedevilled with caste distinctions and communal discords.
