She comes from a family of musicians; her father, the late Pundit Shankar Shripad Bodas, was a disciple of Pundit Vishnu Digambar Paluskar. Veena started her musical education with Kathak dance. She was initiated into Khayal singing by her father and her brother, the late Pundit Kashinath Shankar Bodas. Padmashri Balwantrai Bhatt, the late Pundit Vasant Thakar, and the late Pundit Gajananbua Joshi have also contributed to her education.
The style she has created for herself retains the fundamental values of Gwalior Gharana while borrowing somewhat from Kirana and Jaipur gharanas. Apart from Khayal, she is sought after for her rich repertoire of bhajans.
She has sung at all the prestigious venues and occasions including Tansen Samaroh in Gwalior and Sawai Gandharva in Pune. At the Vokalfestival in Stockholm and at the Voices of the World festival in Copenhagen she represented Indian Classical Voice. She has released recordings on many leading labels. She has been awarded the Uttar Pradesh Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for the year 1993.
Besides being a popular performer, she is also a composer and a teacher; many of her recordings include her own compositions. She has taught voice at institutions as well as privately. For two years between 2002 and 2004 she was Adjunct Professor at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
