Baithak Foundation believes that music exposure and education are as important as mainstream education.

Since 2016, we are working towards creating a society with equitable music access and learning opportunities for children from the most marginalised communities.

Moments With A Master

Sharing memories etched in our hearts forever.

Baithak Foundation is deeply thankful to the entire Sardeshmukh family for their loving support.

“How long you sing is not important. Sing just one note; but sing it with the totality of your being. Whatever you have to say, can be said in a single note.”

Pt. Vijay Sardeshmukh (23 June 1952 – 5 Oct 2019)
