Manisha Pradhan
Managing editor

Manisha has years of experience in writing and editing content and conducting workshops for children. She used to be a content writer for some renowned film based websites and has also been an executive editor of a film based magazine. While writing about films she interviewed some of the top actors and attended filmi events ranging from launches to premiers. But amidst it all she realised she would rather be in an environment which is grounded in reality and which is all heart. This realisation brought her back to writing for kids, because for her nothing else compares to the innocence of kids and their yearning for newer but simpler adventures in life. She loves what she does and she's always experimenting with new, innovative ways to make learning fun for kids.

On weekends you might find her baking, playing hopscotch or camping under a tent in her living room with her 10 year old daughter.

When she's not writing, she enjoys painting, craft, reading, cooking and travelling. What she definitely likes the most though is being a Mom!!...
