  1. I have gone through many a page of Vani Hegde’s blog today which deals with a variety of topics from mundane to spiritual. They impart knowledge, wisdom and new insights into things or happenings of daily life which often we fail to notice. I am so impressed by her writings that I will keep visiting her blog every now and then to acquaint myself with her unique ideas and perspectives on different aspects of life.
