Hi, I am Karthik (Karthikeyan Damodaran) currently working in the private sector as a teaching/academician after having completed my PhD degree from the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. I come from a middle-class family with liberal family values. We belong to a nuclear family currently living in Coimbatore. I am a social scientist who regularly writes articles on social and political issues in major newspapers (The Hindu, Indian Express), magazines (Frontline), journals (Economic and Political Weekly) and online media (The Wire, NDTV). I am looking for an open-minded life partner who strongly believes in the ideas of social justice, equality and better humanity. Basically a soul mate, with a sense of mutual respect, friendship and care.
