Literature

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.

Our Imprints

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.

Put your palm on Cycle’s illustrations to feel its pulse.
