Vanita Pai lives in the idyllic university town of Manipal, where she has ample time to daydream and give in to recurrent bouts of creativity. When she is not bending her mind writing chidren’s books, she is flexing her body at a yoga class or extending advice on product development for a home fragrance brand. Along with Ritu Khoda, she has co-authored Ambadas’ Dancing Brush, Raza’s Bindu and Eye Spy Indian Art, for which they were adjudged Best Author at The Hindu Young World Goodbooks Award 2017. She has a B.A. (Hons.) degree in History from Lady Shri Ram College for Women, New Delhi and a Masters in Communication from Manipal University.
