About Me

Fully Vaccinated absolutely STRAIGHT guy…… 💉💉

Entrepreneur, Writer/Filmmaker, Activist & a Proud Couchsurfer !!

“Strictly a BIG NO to copy-paste requests”

I was born in Agra-UP, brought up in 10+ cities across Assam, UP, Punjab, Delhi, Gujarat and Maharashtra. Have lived and travelled extensively around India, perks of being a Fauji Kid. 😎
I can also help you with recommendations and guidance about places other than Mumbai city. 🌆

- Pls don’t bother If you’re a Fokatiya (Freeloader) or/and a Chutiya (Jerk)

- Please DO NOT send me a Couch request if you’re dirty, you don’t like to take bath because you hitchhike, if hitchhiking is staying dirty then leave it, but please take bath and keep yourself clean instead of making shitttty excuses like “oohhh bro you know bro I’ve been hitchhiking bro, so I hardly get water bro, and when I get water I don’t get time bro, and when I get both of them I don’t feel like taking bath brooo because I get tired broooooo, ohh bro understand my situation broooo, immmmaaa hitchhiker broooooo, give me just a corner of your home bro, that’s enough for me to make your entire place stink with shit brooooooo……
Ohh bro, I’m sorry and strictly NO BROOOOOOOO

- I don’t like to meet people just to get references, I meet them to make memories.

Those who are looking for a place near the airport, or a place right in the mid of the sea, or a place that’s located 1500 metres above the sea level, or a place with a scenic view, or a place that’s very centrally located, or a place that’s very lavish & fancy or “I just wanted a place to crash” people……. Please do not send me a request, I’m done with freeloaders and opportunist people. Thanks 🙏

“My humour is contagious”

Interested in meeting people from the North East, South America, Europe and South East Asia….

I like collecting currency notes, coins, postal tickets and postcards 💷 🪙 🎟️ 🎫

I’m a typical Scorpio, if that matters

- personalised itineraries all over 🇮🇳 with best recommendations

To live joyfully, help CS community without any vested interest and cherish life.

A little bit ABOUT ME...

Quite straightforward, blunt and realistic old school boy. Don't like faking things. Highly opinionated but a non-judgemental person….

Also, if you’re reading this and you just wanna meet-up for breakfast/dinner/drinks or need some guidance/help, feel free to ping me. I’ll help you with the best I can :)

Various life experiences have helped me matured enough to look at things with a positive & meaningful perspective. I’m very enthusiastic towards life. I always try my best in contributing to the mankind. Staunch believer of Karma 🔱

- no time restrictions as such but if you’re getting late at night or planning to come back next morning, pls inform me via text/call beforehand, no surprises would be entertained.
- pls keep the place clean and do not litter your belongings inside the house.
- pls wash your utensils PROPERLY after finishing your food.
- if you’ve friends here pls do not invite them at my place without asking me.
- if you want to extend your stay, do not hesitate and feel free to ask me.


Developing and writing my first movie script which is a political genre based in the murky streets of Uttar Pradesh (largest state of India).
Working on few more concepts.


High values towards life.

Losing vision is more harmful than loosing an eyesight.

I walk, I collapse, I get up and walk again.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been checking out fellow CS travelers and offering them my place.


Have met a lot of interesting travelers over coffee, drinks/dinner.

🤘 Hosting experiences have been fantastically fine till date.

"Atithi Devo Bhava."
||Guest is God||

👉 There have been some fishy experiences and observations as well. I feel sad for those who actually don't understand the core essence of this beautiful concept called Couchsurfing.
