Karwaan: The Heritage Exploration Initiative is one of India's leading student-led History collectives. Founded in 2019 by Eshan Sharma, it has emerged as one of India's most active history collectives. The idea behind Karwaan is to promote the knowledge of history among young minds and the general public and inspire them to be inquisitive and committed to this field, as well as to make people understand the importance of heritage and history. We aim to take academic history to the common man through online platforms.

"Eshan together with some other of his student friends at Delhi University has set up an organization called Karwaan: The Heritage Exploration Initiative. It is an impressive initiative and the fact that students have organized it is even more encouraging. In these days of lockdowns and in fact even in the post-lockdown days, it is a great idea to have historians and others speak on matters of serious interest to students and even the public at large."
