Our projects

” Susanskrit” – Degree & Certification course in Indian classical dance, music & fine arts.

Trying to keep the youth rooted to Indian tradition & Customs through imparting academic training & degree courses in classical dance & music – under the “Guru Shiyshya parampara”. In 2016-17 we have successfully trained 3000 students in Maharashtra. We plan to increase the number and cover other states in association with state government.


Driven by the concern for the women & her powers we introduced this project where we support these women by being a part of their dreams and help them make it come true with our humble effort’s guidance and execution. Every woman of all social economic background, holds a secret dream in heart to be someone, to do something, to be somewhere. She does all the roles she’s expected to do as a woman but still deep down, she lives those dreams, without consciously realising them.

We strongly believe, SHE is completely empowered in her existing equation, she doesn’t need to fight for it. We take humble effort to engage such women to realise their dream side by side along with their various roles and duties of life. We engage remote Indian villagers to craft their talents – in forms of paintings, knitting, handicrafts, sculptures, pots, gift items & decorations which are all symbolic to Indian Rich culture , tradition & heritage , presenting the grandeur of rich Indian Plethora ! These products are displayed in exhibition’s, and are available on our online store.


In association with Shivaakriti foundation, we run a unique program “Susanskrit – education through dance”, to – Promote Classical dance music amongst the lesser privileged youth women & children Empower them with skill sets along with a degree (approved by Gov of India) for a nice career.Personality development and confidence building through Dance & music. Revitalisation of gov & NGO run schools – for lesser privileged with an idea to provide systematic training of Indian classical dance & music as part of education.
