Baatein is an initiative committed to enhancing the creative expression potential of individuals and organisations.
Already an established name in the literary circles of India, Baatein has grown from a modest online community for literary expressions into a full-fledged organisation active in the field of communication development and targeted dissemination.
This includes, but is not limited to, podcasting; developing and delivering workshops on communication creativity and effectiveness for various target audiences; developing creative content (offline and online) for its valued clients, and, running vibrant creative expression platforms that help creative individuals to interact and network.
Baatein was set by Chhaya Dabas (Two times TED speaker, UN GirlUp speaker, entrepreneur, and a teacher) an alumna of the University of Delhi and King's College, United Kingdom.
Baatein is a Delhi-based organisation dedicated to communication enhancement for both businesses and individuals. We do so through various creative routes such as workshops, innovative content, podcasts and community engagements.
Today, after two TED talks; over 20 Open Mics; 10 Workshops; 15 interviews; 15,000 community members and a growing client base - we are proud of what we have created.
Baatein is led by a brilliant team of women and here we hustle harder each day.
Here, we Learn. Write. Lean and Live.
Baatein was founded as a community with a focus on carving out spaces for expression to thrive. We came to life in 2014, when we conducted our first poets' meet at AMA Cafe, Majnu Ka Teela.
In the last 6 years, Baatein has grown into an engine of Creativity, Communication, Community, Conversations, and Ideas.

I am glad to see that they have taken very little time to understand our work and have aptly met expectations. Above all, they have made my big personal dream a reality by giving ipsaa children the “patrika”.
