About Me

An open minded travel obsessed individual (like everyone on Couchsurfing I guess!) who is learning more about himself and the world as time passes by. Easy Going, could be absent minded sometimes - I play Tabla (An Indian Percussion Instrument) and listen to Electronic Music, Clubbing in Berlin is one of my favorite weekend things ! Got into fitness lifestyle 2 years ago and now addicted to running, boxing, volleyball, badminton to name a few. Interested to try via ferrata, indoor climbing, snowboarding etc.

Love the smell of a coffee shop. Can be there for hours reading something.

PHILOSOPHY

1. Do More !
2. Never, ever give up even when you are super tempted to - thats when you have to remember this.
3. Delay judgement even though it's so hard
4. Forgive but never forget
5. Trust Strangers ! Magic happens.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Gatecrashing a corporate office when I was in the first year of my engineering college. We were bunch of teenagers in a party with people of much older age. Sure it was stupid, but was fun!
Going without ticket in a train because my I lost my wallet on my way.
Seeing sunset at a sea shore in Goa.
Helping a tourist start his car by pushing it with all my strength. .

Couchsurfing during cologne carnival and chilling together with fellow CS
