About Me

I am friendly, frank and outgoing. I try to take life in its stride, living it to the fullest and enjoy interacting with people. I love to try my hand at new things I come across. I love art and nature, the two things that I connect with the most.

Quotes I live by :
- Its never too late to learn ; Better late than never
- Live life without compromise so long as it doesn't get in someone's way.
- There are no accidents.
- The best way to learn something is to teach it to someone.

I love meeting new people, sharing stories, experiences and points of view. I love the idea of getting to know a new place from the eyes of people living there!

My experiences of hosting people in Mumbai were fantastic! My guests were extremely well mannered and at the same time very curious and enthusiastic about India. It was a lovely experience hosting them and since then, I have never given up an opportunity to host, when I could.

My best experience in CS was in London, where I went on a trek to the Seven Sister Cliffs, Seaford (U.K.) with a group of around 30 CSurfers. Walking on those really scenic chalk cliffs against the formidable wind was an exhilarating experience!!
