To develop literature that immerses its reader and touches the core of their very being, that lives within the reader as a friend, is what we have set out to do at Ektara.
Ektara was set up with the tri-faceted objective of creating quality literature for children, disseminating varied literary content to target readers, and working as a resource and facilitation centre. Its publication wing is an avant-garde endeavour to perpetuate the magic of words and its associated art through a wide range of books and periodicals created for readers, mostly young and at times old! Its imprints intend to open doorways through which stories, art and ideas can travel across languages, regions and cultures for readers of all ages.

Like two people walk together. In vehicles, only a cycle moves like that. Being with Cycle offers a different kind of togetherness. Cycle magazine is developed from this echo and the pulse of Cycle. Pick your pace and Cycle will accompany you. You walk and it will walk with you. Making you familiar with the path along the way. Cycle advances on the edges of the streets, close to the trees and closer to the farms. It dialogues with the world as a companion with a mood to collaborate. It comes every two months. Put your palm on Cycle’s illustrations to feel its pulse.
