Shanta Girbane was born and grew up in a village on the border of Maharashtra and Karnataka in Marathwada. She barely completed her primary education, but lack of formal education never came in the way of pursuing her passion to write. She took to writing in her mid fifties and has written a collection of poems-Ushakaal (Sunrise), a few booklets like 'Lekvachwa, deshvachwa' (save the Girl child, save the Nation) that have been very popular in rural Marathwada.
Her latest book 'Santatwachya Paulkhoona' (Footprints of Sainthood) written in local Marathi dialect will be released at the PILF 2017.
