About Me


I wake up every morning torn between desire to improve world and at the same time enjoy it


Do what makes you happy.

If you dont live for yourself, who will ? If you live only for yourself, what are you ?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to CS and looking to be a part of the community. I don't have any travel plans right now, but I am looking to be involved by hosting people at my place.


I have a wide range of interests. I like traveling, movies, books, hiking/camping, biking, solving math puzzles (i am a bitcoin miner too), anything related to science and technology, finance, giving back to society in any way possible

Music, Movies, and Books

Now there is a lot to write here, but I will try to keep it short.
Movies - a big movie fan. I have watched movies from practically all over the world. Huge fan of romanian new wave, russian and persian movies. And of course Indian ! :)
Books - I was a huge bookaholic in my college days. But since I started working, I lost the patience to complete reading books, which is a huge shame ! I have taken up reading again. Topics I am mostly interested in autobiographies, inspirational books, books on entrepreneurship, thrillers and travel books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Spent 10 days in Ladakh region which I think is a must see in India
- Spent a night with Indian Army close to Siachen Glacier
- Impromptu hiking to the top of a steep, rugged himalayan mountain close to Khardung la
