About Us


Etymologically speaking the term “astra” refers to a weapon, charm or a magic incantation, which delivers great power and energy to accomplish the impossible. In “Surya Sahasranama” [the 1008 names of the Sun God], we come across the name “arka” to refer to someone who dispels darkness [of ignorance] by spreading the light [of learning]. The Astrarkan Sun logo represents a white core at the centre [knowledge], which spreads itself into 28 spokes, representing the 7 colors of the rainbow. We are Astrarka. The primary idea is to ensure that every child - irrespective of its economic stature - gets access to quality learning platform. The Astrarkans are a passionate lot about researching alternate paradigms of learning through a blend of story telling, game and role playing, meaning imageries and alternate representation that aid in deeper understanding. We dedicate ourselves to this mission.
