About Me

CURRENT MISSION

'When youâ

ABOUT ME

Now thats a tough one.
There's soo much i want to do on this earth, its almost painful!
Travel tops the list by a huge margin.
Given a choice (and the money!), my ideal job would be a travel and food show of my own...something on the lines of 'A Veggie's guide to the world'!Ha!

Checked so far: Para sailing, rafting, rappelling, a bit of biking, cross country driving. Red hot on the list: Guitar, bungee, para gliding, sky diving.

But the most i want to do is to be outdoors, meet people, see cultures.

Hot on the travel list - a short backpacking trip through malaysia,indonesia,cambodia - Sep 11.

PHILOSOPHY

One Life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Moved to Gurgaon recently. Can fairly take people around...esp to eating and partying joints :)

Stay with parents, cant offer a couch.

Can always find time for a coffee/drink/dinner.
If it suits, maybe we'll travel together too!

Interests

I play badminton.
Have started cycling a bit...trying to explore some new places around!
Have taken up photography lately. Hope to sell some to Nat Geo someday :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies - too many to write here...few that never get out of my mind - The Prestige, Memento, Dark Knight (basically Nolan!),Illusionist, Bourne series, LOTR, spaghetti western, Shawshank redemption, A few good men...and loads more!

Books - currently hooked to Richard Dawkins; just finished the God Delusion, the Selfish Gene is next. Reading Empires on the Indus, The ascent of money, Kafka on the shore. Love Ayn Rand, loved Agatha Christie, Robin Cook, Richard Bach. Loved freakonomics, superfreakonomics, onto The under cover economist...basically love the field.

Music - anything from Jagjit Singh to Greenday. Love Coldplay,U2,a bit of Floyd, John Lennon

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

5 months in Varanasi. A Mediterranean cafe, an authentic Japanese rest, an English Bakery...all this hidden in the narrow by-lanes of the city. The sunrise at the ghats, the picture painted by the line of pandits performing ganga-aarti...Believe me, the place has a lot more than meets the eye.

Manali to Leh on a bike. 1000 km of hardly any roads, biking with wet socks in winters, 3 good passes to cross...and then the view of the himalayas from Khardung La - the highest motorable road in the world. Bliss.

Countries I’ve Visited

Nepal, Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates

Countries I’ve Lived In

China, India
