About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be 'thinker" someday

ABOUT ME

Hi guys, so I am an investment banker (NOTT the hotshot wall streeter with a Lamborghini, but a modest, jolly good fellow who had nothing to do with bringing the financial meltdown on the entire world :P)

Am a huge electronic music fan .. and love to make friends in or out of clubs :D

Am generally an energetic high on life human being and a curious soul trying to find what values, philosophies and psyches drive people, cultures and countries around the world.

Am an ex-computer engineer so I do have my geek-streaks :)

PHILOSOPHY

I am trying to live life on the principles of Objectivism, best preached by Ayn Rand. Everything she has written, which obviously is influenced by Aristotle, resonates so well with my thoughts it's hard to see how one has already penned down what I think, and what I even Want to think !

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host..

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

CouchSurfing in many ways has changed my life - no exaggerations !! Have only hosted so far (the only time I was about to surf, I missed my flight :( .. ) Met some of the most amazing people on the planet - who influenced my thought process, made it well rounded and helped me broaden my horizons. Have taken some life altering decisions after getting inspired by CSers! What more can I say!

Interests

Music -living electronic !!!! Day in and day out !! Missing tomorrowland was one of the lowest moments for me in months.. anyway, I love hip hop too Oh & Eminem gets a Nobel if you ask me.

Art - Love impressionists .. Manet, Monet, Rene Magritte, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, some of the contemporaries as well.

Finance & Economics - Hate to miss my FT and The Economist.

TV !! - A huge fan of sitcoms and of Vh1.

Technology - Can't take technology away from a computer geek now can you? :P

Psychology - Would love to take up a degree in behavioral finance sometime soon. Read a little bit of Freud & Jung.. Loved them .. (find life depressing after reading them!)

Music, Movies & Books

well, all of this is covered already i guess..

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Well, hosted over a 100 people at business school under Erasmus program. One of these students influenced me to go all the way to Mexico for my own student exchange, which was probably the most amazing thing that's happened to me. Does getting mugged (voluntarily!?) in Paris count? Umm.. so yes.. that too!

Countries I've Visited

France, Italy, Malaysia, Nepal, Spain, Sri Lanka

Countries I've Lived In
