Kapil Pandey discovered his passion for storytelling at the grand old age of 30 when he and his 2 year old daughter met a monster in the deep, dark wood! As a children’s writer and a drama-in-education practitioner he thinks that drama is a powerful tool to create safe, reflective learning spaces. He is the president of the Kutumb Foundation that uses drama & football to engage with language and holistic learning. Kapil has been training school teachers in the art of using drama as a tool for learning. He has travelled the country with his stories and in pre-COVID days was often found telling stories to children and adults in lit fests, bastis, schools and parks.
