Kasauli Rhythm and Blues Music Festival


Music festival Kasauli rythum and blues music festival kasauli took of today at the Baikunth Resort today.

































Kasauli Rhytm and Blues music festival is an annual music festival held in Kasauli, Himachal at Baikunth Resort. This Music Festival was conceived by Genesis Foundation in 2012 with a view to grow its community of donors and well-wishers. Believing strongly that music is a positive and participatory force in the creation of change, the Foundation invites established and upcoming artistes from India’s diverse pool of musical talent. They perform for our cause – to support critically ill, and under-privileged children suffering from Heart Disorder. Music aficionados can contribute for the cause by simply doing what they love best – listening to music!

100% of funds raised are dedicated towards treatment of critically ill children as all overhead costs are borne by the trustees

About the Genesis Foundation.

Genesis foundation was started after its Founders Prema and Jyoti Sagar lost their child to Heart Disorder – Samir, who was born on December 20, 1983.

It took them a long time to recover from this tragic loss. They began working at Missionaries of Charity. It gave them a whole new meaning to life, and this is how the journey started as they felt they could reach out and assist in the best way possible – enriching the lives of others and their own.
Now – there is no end to this journey to save more and more little hearts. A turning point came when a tea stall owner in a drunken stupor threw his son into a dry well. Only seven years old, he broke or dislocated every major bone in his body. He was taken to an orphanage and then with the help of an American lawyer – Eugene Mihaly, GF reached out to Ravi and contacted Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children in the US where he underwent multiple surgeries along with physiotherapy.

He too, found a happy ending within an American family who adopted him, and welcomed him with open arms – he has been to school and even learnt how to swim! The success of these two experiences paved the way for a more structured organization in the form of Genesis Foundation, where we strive to truly Give Life a Chance.

Our little heart, Anshul is in the pink of health after his treatment. He’s a fighter who overcame CHD and is so happy to be back in school after his recovery. Our team visited him at the Government Secondary School in Kinana village to capture his progress in a film. Stay tuned for the short film! We wish him a bright future ahead. #SaveLittleHearts
