About Me

If people are to be believed then I am funny, crazy and talkative. I keep switching very easily between the sincere intellectual guy discussing deep topics AND a crazy funny guy talking nonsense bullshit. I am extremely informal to people because a joke is the best way to break the ice :)

I quit my IT job to teach under-privileged kids for 2 years in Delhi. Best decision ever! Now I help the Government make education better for India.

I love music. I love theatres. I love mountains

By the way - I make the best chai (tea) EVER! ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To be travelling while at home. The best part of travelling is to learn about the world. Couchsurfing lets me do it sitting at home. It makes the daily life routine more bearable :)


I want music to breath.
I am a theatre artist and I love theatres.
Chai (tea), Mountains, Random facts and trivia, Books, Meditation.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - Sigur Ros, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, A.R. Rahman, Indian Folk music, instrumentals.

Movies - Love drama movies. Pulp Fiction, Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Amelie, Fight Club, A Separation. Love movies by Scorsese and Tarantino. In Indian movies, I am crazy about Anurag Kashyap's movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Taught 56 under-resourced kids of Delhi for two years. Saying that it has changed me as a person is an understatement.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach how to make the best chai, how to plan a trip in India (it is not that simple here!), how to look for the best Indian music, how to cook Indian food, how to meditate, obviously can teach you Hindi and English!

Curiosity drives me. I want to learn about unique cultures and traditions of every country, random facts and trivia about it, about the best musicians in other countries, about the food, about the dance, about the theatres, about the movies, about the schools...phew! The list is endless :)

I share whatever little I have. I share my room, my laptop, my guitar, my kitchen, my books..... EVERYTHING! Because surfers are friends. And with friends there is no formality.

Countries I’ve Visited

Bhutan, Italy, Switzerland, Thailand

Countries I’ve Lived In

India, Italy
