About Me

CURRENT MISSION: To explore India & Make new friends worldwide

ABOUT ME

I m a liberal open minded person open to all religions & human races. Energetic & Extrovert. I love meeting new people & maintaining regular contact with them to build a strong person to person relationship. I believe that world is still one big family & each one of us must be tolerant to another human being or animal existence. Extremely motivated to give back to society for all the good things I have received from the society. I am a serious follower of Art Of Living which teaches me to give COMMUNITY SERVICE. I am very positive about life & self motivator. I take up challenges upfront & most of the time, could surpass them. Have lot of positive & heart winning incidents to share with like minded people who believe that world is still a good place to live. I have a dream of serving society by the time I reach the age of 45 & currently working towards that goal. I will be extremely happy to meet people from social work organizations & non-profit companies like SOS, Care, etc. Already working actively with a Bollywood Actor family for their Social Initiative called Save The Children India.

If it comes back, it's yours. *Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you know they are always there.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am a family man with a beautiful wife & very smart two sons aged 14 & 7 yrs. I would like to spend my evening time with the host & share common thoughts. About different cultures, life challenges, social issues & lot more. I am a light heart person with immense experience because of traveling world wide. I am always keen to help others even at a cost of my time & energy. I am a very good listener. All I need is a good host with nice, clean home who shares their life experiences & lessons.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Interests

Yoga, Biking, Walking or Social Work. Helping others really grabs my attention above all. I have a dream to switch my career at 45 yrs of age to something which involves me into social work activities. Very much into building relationships, Already started working towards that goal & investing my time, money & effort into it to make it a success. I have a vast network of friends & acquaintances worldwide because of my very social nature. I love to attend to people"s needs. My current business takes me to many countries already & would like to develop new friends on my each trip. I truly believes in Mahatma Gandhi & his principles. Can discuss for hours about him & Indian culture. I love people who are methodical & work with systems & are time managers. I like getting early & spending some time on my own alone. I like reading autobiographies of famous personalities who have brought positive change to our world.

Music, Movies & Books

Biographies & Self Help Books. I'll appreciate if my guests brings a book for me or my kids which I shall cherish as a life time gift from friends all over the world. Books are a great way to connect over generations. I'm a movie freak so cant decide the best ones. I love listening to old classics as well as latest popular chart busters. I'm a Gemini so you should understand that I've two personalities.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

1. Created a fantastic platform for deaf children from poor families to be treated free of cost for Cochlear Implants worth Rs 15 lacs. World renowned Dr will perform these treatments at best of the hospitals for many many years now.

2. An experience with Truth-Autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi: This book really brought me to ground & gave me am opportunity to be in touch with the real Indian history. A must read book for all Indians & worldwide peace loving population.

3. A surprise visit to SOS Children village: This made me change my whole perspective on how to serve people & where I can make life worthwhile for others. Since then SOS has become my platform to give it back to society. You can read more about it on my facebook page.

4. Couch Surfed for 21 days in USA. Didn't stay a single day in Hotel.

5. Fighting a consumer court case all by myself against Volkswagen India for selling a faulty car.

6. Check out:"Delhi Import Export professionals group Meetup". I'm moderating it & would like all my friends to share this info in their network so that I can reach out to maximum people from export import industry.

7. The Canadian culture: That's where I really came to know why we shall be helpful to other people & what's the real worth of our life. My current zeal to help others was actually discovered in Canada. Although I do not have a single relative in Canada but still have at least half dozen places where I am invited to stay on my trip as family.

Teach, Learn, Share

All people and creatures on this planet are worthy of respect unless they knowingly and willingly hurt harm or disrespect others. I do personally think that we are all equal on this planet so no matter if you are a world leader or a tramp in a shop doorway you deserve the same degree of respect and humanity. If people are shown disrespect then generally they start to disrespect others. I think a good person is someone who cares about others, including animals. A person who is not lazy, a person who takes care of their family. Yes, some people are naturally good because they are raised this way and they were treated "good" also you learn as you grow-up how to be an even better person on a daily basis. In my experience the MUST HAVE qualities are simple. Honesty and integrity. You need to be a reliable person who won't let others down, and is prepared and confident enough to be up front with people, even at very difficult times.

Other than that, important qualities which can be worked on but are useful, I would say are:

- The ability to empathize

- An awareness of the fact that as an individual we all hold prejudices of many kinds, and a determination to not let these inherent prejudices affect our work

- A determination to continually better yourself, recognize that you can never get it right all the time, and work hard to improve.
