About Me


To be master of balanced living and Inspire ppl as many ways I can..


I am near perfect man except a bit stupid, careless, illogical,n down right ignorant... i love travel but don't have much time nor cash, I like sports but hardly know the rules,I am ambitious but have made no goals...... haha!! I guess you can see the sarcasm n I can laugh about myself but if I have made you curious than just call OR email me. Happy to host and I am best described by my friends in references so I leave the judgement to you.. :)

CSers- PLEASE BE MINDFUL that I have a very busy schedule, so I can't reply instantly.But I do like to cook together and have some grean a SERIOUS note.. There are a lot of things I believe in but to keep it short and less boring, :) I'll share some of the things I strongly believe in and they are:

What goes round comes round.
One who cares for his time, cares for his n others life. .

In this modern world of millions of distractions,don't forget the journey within yourself along with outside.. :)

Balancing all aspects of life (financial, social n family,educational, spiritual, physical,professional)is the toughest ART in my opinion and I really admire ppl who have mastery on this. Hence I like to read or follow great human leaders or teachers like N. Mandela, Gandhi, Einstein, Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracey, Jim Rohn, Dr J. De Martini etc etc. who have helped TRANSFORM me for the better forever..

There is no substitute to hard work but don't be a sucker of hard work as there are millions of times where SMART work is better work... DING DONG.... :)

Have GRATITUDE, it makes life extremely meaningful n enjoyable...

True learning does not come only from classroom or uni degrees. True learning comes from the UNIVERSITY of the WORLD where every person can teach you something.. Hence CS is great place.. BOOOYAA!!

To have great friends, you have to be a great friend. To get a great partner you have to be a great partner. TO GET WHAT YOU WANT, YOU FIRST HAVE TO DESERVE.. :)

Money is not evil, it is only ones intention which makes it evil. Money only exaggerates ones personality.

I guess I have bored you enough so far and if you have read this far there something really wrong with you, I suggest you get urself checked... :) Kidding again. If you think you like to know more of me, than feel free to contact me. I like people esp. people with a great smile and lovely aura, that's all I care for.

Enjoy the adventures of life everyone.. God Bless...


Life is an open canvas and you are ur own curator. You can create whatever you like. And you can do it every day in all aspects like physical, spiritual, financial, educational or social.
Work hard, mean well, be kind, have big goals and be ready to tolerate pain, than there in not much that can really get u down..

Believe in win win, there is a lot of power in positive thinking and self growth has no limits.. ITS INFINITE.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have loads of friends who host couch surfers and the events they create, i am usually part of it.


I have hosted heaps of ppl but have done very little couch surfing myself. But next year i am planning to make it a big plan of travelling and use couch surfing around Europe..


Talking to ppl from all walks of life and learning from their experiences, hosting dinner with a common cause, travelling as a back packer and as weird Indian :)

Squash (I draw a lot of my life principles from this game and it is my best stress reliever better than sex... :). Also as secondary games I enjoy Chess, soccer, cricket or badminton.

Indulge in few community activities to keep a rounded perspective to life (which reminds me how lucky I am n it fills me up with sense of gratitude)

Dancing and cycling are my favorite refreshment activity. I love it when my cheekyness creates a smile on people's faces..
and in my quite time I love to read some great books which helps me learn something, hence not much of fictional reader unless highly recommended...... :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Blood Diamond, american gangster, most documentaries, rush hour, amelia, there is something about marry, notting hill, ET, Schindlers list, you have got a mail blood diamond etc etc etc..
mix taste of indi, pop, or rock.. some country and instrumentals are great too. I am a man from BOLLYWOOD land hence I am a bit into that.

Books-- Tuesday with Morrie, Kite runner, audacity of hope, business stripped bare, shantaram, fine balance, The art of happiness, the road less travelled, etc etc..

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Again too many to put down in a list.

Walk in the NELSON LAKES with five great friends and couple of times crossing some really scary ridges. I accused my friends that they have conspired to kill me..:)

Working in the vineyard and staying with a Maori family while working in south Island in NZ.LOVED IT..

Backpacking thru Laos n Thailand. Meeting few random poeple who became the best travel buddies and now friends in just few days.. Its amazing how that happens.

Travelling with my best Kiwi friend through India and being treated as a foreign tourist in my own country of birth was a weird feeling..

Checking out some serious wild life in the Indian forest, including Tiger, wild elephant charging towards us, and a leopard just on top of our jeep during night safari.

3 day camel trekking in the dessert of Rajasthan and sleeping under the open sky with the bare minimum stuff with us and only two camel and my guide. We had night visitors as dessert foxes around us and the guide said they don't attack unless you hide food too close to yourself...:)

Other amazing things are being LOVED, :) done some modelling, some drama n art work, taking sports seriously after a long gap of 10yrs or more, organizing road trip for a group of random friends, making friends around the world. Being part of a great big Indian family. Opportunity to live in Melbourne and enjoying all the great events..

Teach, Learn, Share

There is toooo much to say about this hence i will not bore you with this..

I will always be a STUDENT in a school of LIFE.. :)

We remember moments not dates, hence create a moment. And excellence is a journey not a destination.. These two thoughts give me a lot of strength to push harder every day..
