Join Couchsurfing to see AMITABH’s full profile. It’s free!
A casual philosopher I like meeting people and talking to them and listening to their stories about themselves, their work, their culture, their travels. Occasionally I teach courses on Banking or International Trade at Management Schools. I like to be easy and uncomplicated.
