Devang's appreciation of the gross and subtle mechanics of the world around him translates into many interests, including an abiding love of bicycles, coffee, cars, and Vastu Shastra - as the study of space and the flow of energy within that space.

Devang is a caring teacher, whose passion and respect for his subjects is infectious! The attention Devang brings to the minute details means that he offers insightful and lasting instruction, especially in those subjects that rely on a system of understanding, such as Vastu Shastra and Jyotish.
