1990: By the start of 1990, we published more than 82 titles and began a major foray into Dalit literature. We also started the first Dalit little magazine, Nalupu.
2000: We added more than 60 more titles to our catalogue. Nalupu closed down in 1994 due to lack of delivery of content on time, financial distress and management burnout.
2010: We added more than 125 titles to our list and branched out into several new areas like queer literature, reprints of old classics
2020: We added 86 titles to our list, completed 40 years in service to Telugu literature and activism and are making our way into a digital world.
