About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to live the moment!

ABOUT ME

I am a fun loving guy and love to travel. I read and like to go out. Sometimes i am against all sorts of materialism but then at times i love having some cash in my pocket to party. I love partying, but then at times i just like to sip a drink with friends and chill. I love chilling but then at times i just get tired of it and wanna head to a party. haha... don't be scared...im not too insane ;)

Ive been brought up in north india...studied in the south...worked in the west...and somehow never got a chance to go the east. i lived in copenhagen for a while...and am now back to where it all started...north india...so now you see...things with me always come a full circle :D

PHILOSOPHY

Love and live like its the last day of your life. Like a wise man once said "It's better to burn out than fade away" .

The sun rises and the sun sets - whatever you get in between is Bonus.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I started with meeting very interesting people during CS meetings and surfed a couch in Berlin and Hamburg. It was a great experience. After that i surfed a few more couches and started hosting as well (not too many since i was staying in a small dorm room). Now, i try and host people in my hometown Agra. When i cant host them, i try and advise them about Agra and India in general. Its payback time :)

Since I believe in having a good time, I try to pass on the same spirit to everyone i meet through Cs. One of the ways to do it is by having everyone on the couch :D

If for some reason I am not in town or unable to host you, please refer to this link to find more about Agra and accommodation you can take Wiki Agra

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Brilliant! I would never had met such a diverse and interesting group of people had it not been for couchsurfing. So far the experience has been extremely positive and looking forward to meeting many more nice people.

Through cs, i've had crazy and wild parties in Berlin; all night conversations in Budapest; driven drunk in Praha; missed my flight from Krakow, entered local unknown to tourist mountain dance competition in Arequipa.Haha...i've had some really wikkid times through CS. I love it.

Interests

Reading, Music , learning about new cultures and making new friends. Going out partying. I am always up for a beer or many beers. 1/100th chance that I'd say no to it :)Its kinda weird...i can still drink as many beers as i could 10 years back...but it takes a tad bit longer to recover...i think the beer nowdays is stronger ;)

Can spend many days at the beach...read a book...get some sun. Its so nourishing to the mind and the body.
Love beaches, mountains, forests - nature...feels nice to be connected to the mother earth.

Like diving and bungy jumping. It's the thrill sometimes that gets me going.

Californication series Rocks...Hank Moody is awesome ;)

I like "How i met your mother ". Think its a kickass series.

Music, Movies & Books

Jim Morrison rules!!!Skazi, Higko and mostly electronic music now. Have started listening to a lot of bollywood music lately...

Movies - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The lives of others , The secret in their eyes , godfather .. and many more.

Oscar Wilde, James Clavel, James Michener , Wilbur Smith, DH Lawrence, Sartre,Nietzsche, Dostoevsky,Jon Krakauer, Kundera and the list is endless :)

Some of my favorites are - A razor's edge, drifters , tai pan, into the wild,metamorphosis, the unbearable lightness of being, the monk who sold his ferrari, fountainhead, wilderness, english august,picture of dorian gray, the third twin, harry potters (i like them)......and many more...

I am penning down a book now...with influences from sooooo many great writers. Hope i find my own style soon.
