She’s the author of two children’s books – So You Want to Know about the Environment and what’s Neema Eating Today?
When Bijal Vachharajani is not reading Harry Potter, she can be found traipsing around the jungles of India. In her spare time, she works so she can fund those trips and expensive Potter books.

She has been a communication consultant with Fair trade Asia Pacific and Humane Society International/India and writes about children’s literature and sustainable development as a freelance journalist. She’s a consultant editor with Pratham Books.
