Vinitha was introduced to the exciting world of Malayalam literature at a very early age by her father Sri. P. Narendranath who was an accomplished Malayalam Writer. This has greatly helped her in carving a niche for herself by adapting Malayalam poems into Mohiniyattam, thus enriching its repertoire. Karukare karmukil by Kavalam, Poothappattu by Edassery, translation of Tagore’s Gitanjali, etc are some of Vinitha’s endeavors in this line. The huge success of these items became a trendsetter and inspired other dancers to look into the treasure trove of Malayalam poetry.
Along with her training and busy career as a dancer, she finds time to do serious research in the art form and frequently write articles on its various aspects.
