IndiAanya is a blog by Christian women in India. We aim to create spaces where Christian women in India can discuss faith and life, in community with other women (in India and beyond). Through our podcast series, we hope to facilitate real conversations that inspire, encourage and challenge with words of faith, hope and grace.
