Rama Koneru
Rama Koneru describes herself as — "A lifetime student of yoga, I write articles about my experiences. I am a student at the Hindu University or America, working towards a degree in Samskritam. Through Samskritam, I hope to explore the Indian culture more deeply. I am interested in anything to do with Indian traditions, but since the area is so vast, right now, my focus is Yoga and Samskritam. I feel I have not even begun to scratch the surface of what our culture has to offer. The more I study, the less I know it seems."
