About Me

Married Man Hindu joint family

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I don’t travel to see places, I travel to meet people. People who are different than us, people who don’t speak our language, who don’t look like us, who don’t eat like us and who don’t think like us.

This is what travel is for me. Travel is to learn and I am a master of finding connection and this is what I have learned from people also.

I still can't figure out whether people travel for the people or for the places. Either way you turn it, you always keep on coming back for something you left unfinished or unfelt till the end.

'when people move - when they travel - they look where they've come from,
not where they're going."
It is obvious that I myself cannot travel to every corner on the Earth, so I believe Couchsurfing would grant me opportunities to meet people from various parts of the world. Thanks to that, I could embrace diverse cultures, customs and broaden my horizon.
Meet new friends. Travelling is about turning strangers into friends, but with me this process takes 10 seconds.

It’s always nice to know a place through the eyes’ of a local person. A Lonely Planet guide can’t take you to places a local can. :)

Interests

Coin collection.

PHILOSOPHY :
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
John Lennon

It's nice to be important but it is more important to be nice.

When you talk you are only repeating what you already know but if you listen you may learn something new.

My Favourite Travel Quote:
If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.

The measure of love is when you love without measure. In life there are very rare chances that you meet the person you love and loves you in return. So once you have it never let go, the chance might never come your way again.

What I Can Share with Hosts

∼'Come as stranger, leave as friend'

My travel stories and photos, languages, own culture; simple cooking.

I'd conserve water and electricity. 
I'd volunteer to help on food preparation, dish washing ; keep myself and the house clean and tidy. A non-smoker.

On a side note, I would definitely go through host's profile and be respectful of local custom or any house rules.
