Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am a family man with a beautiful wife & very smart two sons aged 15 & 8 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.
My experience as a new couch surfer has been excellent till now. I welcome hosting people coming into New Delhi & will try to make their stay as comfortable as possible.
Yoga, Biking, Walking or Social Work. Helping others is one task which really grabs my attention above all. I have a dream to switch my career at 55 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.

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.
