" This world, its a very nasty place ! And no matter how tough you are, it will beat you down and keep you on your knees permanently, if you let it. And its not about how hard you hit back, its about how hard you can get hit and still keep moving Forward !!! ( Sylvester Stallone - Rocky Balboa )
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I host couchsurfers and have hosted plenty, I can say. Also up for meeting anybody over a cup of coffee/drinks or food. I have also travelled a bit alongwith a few couchsurfers.
I rarely attend any of local Couchsurfing meets or events. Hence not a lot of local couchsurfing community members may know me.
Its been great ! I have hosted some really nice people and its been absolute pleasure knowing different cultures, different languages and yet understanding at the end of it that we are all humans and so much alike, afterall !
Having said that, I think I should also add that I have had some unpleasant experiences too. Nothing lifethreatening ofcourse ...
Martial Arts & Boxing..I am just hooked on to Boxing . It makes me feel alive. And every time I spar, and every punch I get on the face, is like a reminder that I AM ALIVE ))
Reading, Reading & reading ! ( Isnt life too short to read enough ?) Music..Although I can listen to anything, I especially love Hindustani classical, Western Classical . Being into events, & organizing club events & parties, I have recently acquired the taste for EDM,House & Trance. I do love House music...Wildlife and Jungles !Hiking and Trekking. Trying to find places which are still free from this mad crowd !
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies-Andrei TarkovskyKurusawaIngmar BergmanCharlie ChaplinDavid O Russell ..And so many more !Music-Well, the list is unending. To list a few..Mehndi Hassan Pandit Bhimsen JoshiRajan ,Sajan MishraIllayrajaScorpionsPantera ( For Dimebag Darrell )MetallicaSting ....
My Fav Song -

Books-DostoyevskiChekhovPushkinKarl Marx & EngelsJim Corbett ( For his love for wildlife and encounters with tigers. )" The Diary of Bhagat Singh " ( My Bible, My Quran, My Gita ! )
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Being chased by wild elephants in Nagarhole,who were trying to protect their young ones...
Winning Gold in the International open Martial arts tournament in my weight category.
Surviving unscratched in a fatal car crash !
Being led out and guided by a dog who we had fed the previous evening when we got lost in a tiger reserve in Madhya Pradesh. It followed us everywhere, and when it realized we had got lost, it caught us by our trouser, and led us out.. ( Its totally true !!! )
I loved somebody once... Truly !
