I signed up for Couchsurfing sometime in 2013 and forgot about it shortly after. Now three years later in 2016, I have started using it again. I hope to have some wonderful experiences and to tell some interesting stories along the way :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I see Couchsurfing as a way to meet new and interesting people, learn new things, learn other languages and make new friends.
I have been a huge introvert all my life, and like anything else, I love that about myself. But I know it can be a handicap sometimes: I see Couchsurfing as a way to overcome that.
I want to travel both inside and outside of India, and rather than the watered down "tourist" version of a place, I want to learn about the real place, people, culture, traditions, languages and mindset. I also want to experience what it's like to be a local. Hence, Couchsurfing.
Ofcourse I like the "free place to stay" aspect, but it's only a small part of why I couchsurf.

Music, Movies, and Books
I don't enjoy a specific genre or artist. Some movies and books sort of click, and I watch/read them again and again.
Some of these movies include The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather, Braveheart, Few Good Men and Notting Hill.
I enjoyed books like The Fountainhead, The Alchemist and The Kite Runner.
I am also a huge fan of the Game of Thrones series and the F.R.I.E.N.D.S sitcom. Could winter *be* any late! :P
Teach, Learn, Share
If you're new to fish-keeping, I can teach you how to properly set up your first tank, how to clean it etc.
If you're new to motorcycle riding, I can share stuff that I have learnt along the way.
I can teach you a bit of Tamil, and teach you an old Tamil song or two!
What I Can Share with Hosts
Food/snacks, books and laughs! :)
I'll clean up after myself. I'll help with the dishes and cleaning. I'll buy coffee. I'll read you one of my amateurish poems.
I'm quite good with computers. So if there's a problem with yours, I can probably fix it or point you in the direction of a solution.
If you are helping or are part of a non-profit or charity that needs a website, I can set up a basic website for free.
I'll help you plant a tree if you feel up to taking care of it.
I'll also try to help in any other way I can :)
