About Me

Health-Tech Founder currently based out of Bangalore, India. Have lived earlier in Delhi, Chennai and Phoenix.

I was born in a small town 5 hours North of Patna on the 🇮🇳🇳🇵border and went to college at IIT Madras.

Down for interesting conversations on politics, economy, philosophy, society, books, movies, food, tech, culture, future of the world and almost everything under the sun.

Mostly a bleeding heart cosmopolitan neoliberal from a political standpoint. Lapsed podcast host planning to restart one. Have traveled a fair bit. Cultural exchange has shaped me into who I am as a person today.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To get to know about different cultures, meet different people and explore the world.


Interested in intercultural communication and international affairs.

Love to talk about books, movies, interesting opportunities and much more.

Music, Movies, and Books

🎶 The only thing constant about my music choice is its flux. Daft Punk, Indian Classical, Pop, Punjabi & Bollywood

📚 Voracious reader. Non-fiction mostly, but fiction as well. I’m told I give the best personalised book recommendations, although that’s for when you bribe me with ☕️

🎥 Thriller, Drama, Romcoms
