KANAKAVALLI VIGNETTES - THANGAM VENKATESAN GUEST CURATES

KANAKAVALLI VIGNETTES - THANGAM VENKATESAN GUEST CURATES

“This is what beauty means to me – reviving the past and keeping tradition alive,” says Dr. Thangam Venkatesan, Kanakavalli’s September Vignette. Thangam is more than a doctor. She is an international expert in a virtually unknown health disorder, a teacher and academician, a meditation instructor, an avid gardener, a mother, daughter, wife, and traveller. She inhabits these many roles with ease and grace, bringing joy and love to everything she does.

In conversation with The Kanakavalli Journal, Thangam traces her love for nature to summers spent in Tirunelveli with her grandparents, and opens up about her serendipitous discovery of meditation. She reflects on how pursuing medicine shaped her destiny, the rhythms that help her keep a work-life balance, and the magic of travel. Explore Thangam’s curation of saris that reflect her absolute joie de vivre right here, and read the entire conversation on our journal.
