Karthik Shetty is a Bunt, a martial race of mercenaries-turned-agriculturists (by birth), a computer engineer (by qualification), a content & marketing manager at Zomato.com (by profession), and a food writer by passion, in Bangalore. While not plying his trade, he can be found in any one of the numerous eat-out joints in Bangalore, savouring what the city's best cooks have for the palate. A true connoisseur of food, he considers himself an artist; the food is his paint, the cutlery his paintbrushes and his stomach is his canvas. Addicted to comics, food & socio-politico-economic issues, he loves to discuss issues that affect Laxman's common man and happens to ruffle a lot of feathers in the process, and he plans to continue this crusade indefinitely. Liberal, amateur photographer, non-believer, punctual are some adjectives that also describe him. You can have a conversation with him on any topic under the sun and expect him to contribute substantially to the discussion. A rare quality in him is he's an extremely good listener (so he's been told); so talk.
