About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finding a travel for this december.

ABOUT ME

An engineering student,an aspiring entrepreneur and most importantly an avid traveler!
I am like a know-it-all who can have a conversation on everything. But I respect other's opinion and want to know their perspective. A HUGE tennis fan, played at a national level 3 years back. I love all racket sports.
I am very enthusiastic, especially whilst travelling. You will never find me tired or bored. I love reading but only like few conventional books. "Medium.com" is an amazing website to read stuff.

PHILOSOPHY

I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Since I stay with my parents and study full-time, I can host on some occasions only.But feel free to ask.I can surely show you around the city.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great experiences in western europe, looking forward to meeting travelers in my hometown now :)

Interests

Indigenous cultures,people, world politics, tennis, general knowledge stuff,travelling and much more :)

Music, Movies & Books

I think these things reflect who a person truly is and I would like to share them with someone only after I know them :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have regularly participated in street schools through which I ensure education of the people who cant afford it whilst completing my education :)
Fun things would be going on an impromptu trips to Goa!
Road trips with friends.
Going on a solo trip to western Europe

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach:
Vegetarian cooking. I am not an amazing cook but my cook surely knows her food. If travelling, she helps me make a decent meal through Skype.
Yoga. I know my fair share of it.
Hindi, my national language.
Learn:
I am open to learning anything. You cannot know what you want to learn until you have learnt it. And whats the harm?
Share:
Culture.
My wacky insight and perspective ( I take too many things literally or to their origin. It is kinda fun). Eg: We shake hands because ages ago kings used to do so when they met each other to express their trust because they couldnt pull out a sword with one hand and normal people started replicating it since the kings did so and now the whole world uses a HANDSHAKE!

Countries I've Visited

Austria, China, Czech Republic, Germany, Malaysia, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand

Countries I've Lived In

India, Italy
