Ezhuthu Magazine, the first project of Loyola Institute of Peace and International relations, was formally released on November 1. On the auspicious day of the birth of the State of Kerala, a long-awaited dream of ours came to be realized. The Town Hall of Ernakulam, recently renovated, and packed to its full capacity with friends and well-wishers and more than 60 Jesuits witnessed the birth of the new magazine of the Peace Institute. An array of dignitaries like, Justice Kurien Joseph, Smt. Dhayabhai, the well-known activist, Provincial, Fr Dr.M.K. George, the Chief Editor Prof. V. G. Thampy, Prof. M.K. Sanu, Fr Adapur, and Prof. M. Thomas Mathew adorned the dais.
The magazine was released by none other than the much acclaimed activist, Dhaayabai who handed over the first copy to Sri Vaikkom Murali, a prominent literary critic. The choice of Dhayabai to release the magazine was a deliberate choice and it emphasized the fact that Ezhathu will resonate the voice of the voiceless.
