Kalpana Manivannan

A mother of two amazing kids and a teacher by profession, I have varied interests. Apart from being an avid reader, I dabble in gardening. My love for painting, cooking, travelling and jotting down my random musings keeps me wonderfully occupied. With all this going, I still am my happiest being a mother and a wife as my world revolves around my family and for me, their love is what makes the world go round.
