This website is committed to science. It is to help basic research. It seeks to provide primary evidence and sources relating to the subject field of the Buddhist rock-cut monuments of India.
The above object requires no ideology of the past or present. It is like a work of physics and chemistry. Undoubtedly, the fundamental principles of science is the same across all the sciences whether natural sciences, physical sciences, or social sciences.
Despite best intentions, if there are errors and inconsistencies, the same may kindly be brought to the notice of the site administratior, editor, or author. Your comments and feedback will be examined and remedial steps will be taken with due acknowledgements.
Every attempt has been made, and will be made, to respect copyright laws. Contents from other sources will be placed under quotation marks with citation and reference to the sources. All the photographs are taken by the author (Dr Rajesh Kumar Singh) unless specified otherwise.
Other authors from the disciplines of Indology, archaeology, art history, ancient history, Buddhist studies, etc. are invited to contribute contents in a charitable manner. For any photographic collection, the contributors are required to have obtained the permissions, wherever necessary, from the Archaeological Survey of India or other state authorities.

Generally, two styles are followed here: Oxford Style Manual and The Chicago Manual of Style.
We are, however, looking for a subeditor for the portal who is familiar with WordPress and is ready to volunteer until funding is available. In the long run the website will require a managing and chief editor. Until that time the site is edited by Rajesh Kumar Singh although not with perfection since most of the time is committed to archaeological research, and only part time can be given to this website.
