Shobha Karnik is an engineer by profession and got involved in birds because of her college friend Vidya. Out of curiosity, she joined her friend in her photo walks, even accompanying her to places like Uttarakhand. This kindled the interest to know more about the birds and both started working on bird articles. They have been working together on birds for more than two years. She has been involved right from conceptualization to translating the book to e-format, for release.
