Greetings,
My name is Karan! In my free time, I enjoy listening to Music and Playing/Watching soccer.

Since 2011, I am proud to say that I was a participant in various MSMT performances that have been hosted. Over the years I was able to help out with the MSMT team and ensure that our event went smoothly. I am extremely thankful to Shweta Aunty for invigorating me to this organization, letting me discover my roots, and for the opportunity to be a member of its ever-flourishing team. In my personal opinion, MSMT is an organization which is Enriching the lives of youths by introducing them to art, music, and cultural programs that build character, self-esteem, and spirit. The name Mile Sur Mera Tumhara literally means to bring people of diverse backgrounds together, teamwork, and acceptance of one another. I am proud to be a part of the MSMT youth team. If you see me around, come over and say Hi!
