Let’s get to know the Authors

Vidya Kulkarni, an engineer by profession has worked on defense projects. Starting her hobby of photography in her golden age, she is the perfect example of the fact that age should never be a barrier to pursue your passion. She developed a tremendous love for Wildlife, and birding in particular. In a short few years, she went from an amateur photographer to the go-to person in the birding community, with honours’ and felicitations by professional bodies like National Geographic FB – ‘Wild Bird Trust’, Photographer of the World, Nature Photography, Camarena, Birds Planet – Strabo Pixel Club to name a few.

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.

Vandana Rajhansa is a Chartered Accountant by profession, who always had a flair for photography. When she joined Rotary in 2016, her fellow Rotarian Vidya Kulkarni took her under her wings and pursued her to take up wildlife photography. Both travelled together to places like Tadoba, Jim Corbett etc. for birding. She then joined Vidya Kulkarni and Shobha Karnik in their endeavor of writing and presenting about birds, culminating in book writing.
