Our Story - An alliance stitched by a universal conspiracy


When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist (1988)

The birth of Eka is a magical fable that defies the theory of probability. Too many coincidences and too little explanations. We started off our operations on 1st of September 2011 – and that happens to be the birthday of the lord of wisdom – Ganesha. Hence the name “Eka”, inspired by “Eka Dantha” – a name of Ganesh.


Eka, by the way is also the name of the finest student of Indian mythology, Ekalavya. There is an interesting backronym for “EKA” – “Education, Knowledge and Achievement” – which represents all that we stand for. But then, there is much more magic in the air.

Though started on 01 September 2011, our incorporation certificate took infinitely long time to arrive. It was a frustrating wait. But when the certificate arrived at our Email inbox, it was truly magical.   Please see the screen shot of the email below
(PS : 11th November is also celebrated in India as the national education day – the birth anniversary of the first education minister of India, Abul Kalam Azad)
