For the last 8 years she has gradually and painstakingly built a beautiful abode that reminds her of home ten thousand miles away. Today’s feature not only showcases a fabulous home but also spreads the deeper message of keeping your roots close to your heart, no matter where you are in the world. Anu Varma moved to the US 14 years ago. Today she has a beautiful home and a beautiful family in Seattle, WA on the west coast of the United States; that is pretty much as far away from India as one can possibly be. Yet, her home has a unique freshness and cultural warmth that is rarely found even in Indian homes these days. It goes to show how rooted Anu and her family are, a quality I applaud knowing how hard it is to maintain cultural roots and ties in a foreign land where not many understand the significance and depth of your heritage.
