At Ektara we strive to keep our information and media about history as authentic and unbiased as possible. We do not wish to ascribe to a particular political standpoint or interpretation of historical facts, and wish to represent a holistic and scientific view of facts. The visitors are free to provide their comment and feedback on our content.

From January 2017, the initial name of this web archive, etihas.in, is being changed to Ektara.
