About Me


Work, play, love, travel


I have been living in the United States for the past 7 years where I built great friendships, met amazingly diverse and smart individuals, had terrific experiences, and got the opportunity to travel the world! I have recently returned to India as a fellow with the Clinton Foundation to work with a social enterprise. I hope to continue building great friendships, meaningful relationships, and learn from people and cultures I come across in my travels!

Small and simple things make me happy. I have discovered the joy of travel and I hope to pursue more of it. I am good at cooking Indian curries, telling interesting stories, discussing love, life, politics and everything in between!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can host,take my guest around to lesser know/ non-touristy places when I am free,make great Indian food for my hosts,share my experiences.


I couchsurfed in an off the grid cabin with no electricity or running water, slightly outside Fairbanks, Alaska, when I went there to experience Aurora Borealis! I couchsurfeed on a sailboat in Portalns, Maine! My first couchsurfing experience in Puerto Rico, cemented my belief in the general goodness of strangers in this world!


Movies, music,cooking, world history, politics,new cultures, partying, random trips, travelling, hiking, camping.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am an absolute movie buff!! I have a personal collection of more than 300 movies from my undergraduate days :) Schindler's List, Shawshank Redemption, Forest Gump, American History X, KillBill, Pulp Fiction and Reservior Dogs are a few to name to show the both extremes of my tastes.
