About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

ABOUT ME

I don't know everything about myself, I relish challenging and always surprising myself. What I do know at this stage of my life is the following:

1. I like meeting people; interacting with them, getting to know about them from their experiences, sharing few stories from of my own.

2. I am an engineer not only by trade but also by aptitude.

3. I'd consider myself free spirited, I don't like being tied down. I love traveling and experiencing things that constantly push and pull me in different directions.

PHILOSOPHY

The woods are lovely, dark and deep;
But I have promises to keep.
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am very new to this; I heard about it from few friends I made in hostels while traveling in Thailand.
I've decided to take a short spur of a moment trip to New York and the hostel scene is a bit tight for my budget.

Interests

I don't like putting myself in a box. I enjoy anything to everything that engages me and stimulates my mind body and soul.
I run quite a bit (love those endorphins)
Traveling - nothing comes close to the feeling of getting some where you've never been.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My only visit to India since I moved to the US was in 2009/10. I was in Bombay that time standing in front of a famous restaurant. There were a lot of street kids around me begging for money, after many failed attempts to get rid of them I finally caved in and agreed to buy them food instead.
Watching them eat their meals with such delight gave me goose bumps. I felt immense happiness and disgust at the same time. I am still trying to decipher all the emotions I went trough.

I can teach you:
- How to make the best Chai
