About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to be better at one little thing today, than I was yesterday.

ABOUT ME

I am a driven person who likes to make few things happen through constant effort, and leave few things completely to chance to see where life takes me.

I love to be on the move, no matter how that is. On the train, in a bus, boat, bike, swimming through the waters, walking, trekking or even on a space ship!

I'm always game for something new. Whatever that is. That's one thing you can definitely count on.

PHILOSOPHY

I do, therefore I am.

But then, I borrowed this from a fellow Couchsurfer's profile. Loved it so much that I had to include it here (Thanks Norbu!)

"I change, therefore I am not."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love the idea of interesting people coming over to stay with me, opens up an opportunity to explore new ideas and thought processes.

Like someone said, if I ain't travelling, the travel might as well come to me.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have surfed in many countries across the globe.
My friends have hosted lot of surfers in the past and have friends who surf a lot.

Interests

Travel, Technology, Teaching, People, Nature, Music, Movies, Storytellers and Storytelling.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies
The Matrix, What's eating Gilbert Grape, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, all the Scorcese and Guy Ritchie fun flicks. Also, lot of docu films off late.

Music: Open to all genres, but nothing like listening to live music. That tops it all.

Books.
Read once a while, big fan on Tintin, Asimov's robots and Clarke's imagination.
Reading has been reduced to articles in the Internet off late.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

explored the depths of my own mind,
on a warm morning in March.

Yet to see anything like it.

Teach, Learn, Share

"The World is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round, and it has thrills and chills and is very brightly colored, and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they've begun to question, 'Is this real, or is this just a ride?', and other people have remembered, and they've come back to us and they say 'Hey, don't worry. Don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.' and we KILL THOSE PEOPLE.

"Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account, and my family. This just has to be real."

It's just a ride.

But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that. You ever noticed that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because ... It's just a ride.

And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear wants you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead see all of us as one.

Here's what we can do to change the world right now, to a better ride:

Take all that money we spent on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing, and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and WE CAN EXPLORE SPACE, TOGETHER, BOTH INNER AND OUTER, forever ... in peace."

Bill Hicks (1961 - 1994)
