His other areas of interest include spirituality, history and of course writing, which has always been a passion of his.
‘Mahabharata – The Eternal Epic in Short Stories’ is his first published work, a result of his ambition to make the story of the Mahabharata more accessible to all age groups, especially in this new age when everything moves faster and attention spans are shorter. He is inspired by journeys and experiences of spiritual teachers such as Ramana Maharishi, Swami Ramakrishna, Siddhartha Gautama and his very own guide and confidante, Krishna.
Vignes is primarily based in Malaysia, though also fondly refers to Singapore, India and Bali as home.
