Siddhi is inspired by volunteering at Vedika because she feels that Vedika embodies the true meaning of volunteering. She has volunteered and continues to volunteer in many different organizations, but feels that volunteering at Vedika is unique because it has given her the chance to learn and practice detachment. Siddhi feels that her service work is contributing not only to the good of the whole but to the good of the individual as well.
