About Me


Spreading the Love, one person at a time :)


I cant even imagine how many times I have had to edit what I write about myself. I guess I am always changing... I am 50% Indian and 50% American but 100% me. I am a dancer. Not professionally, but in a spiritual and physical sense I love to dance. I love traveling. I like going places even if its just bumming around in my own city, and trust me, no one knows my city better than me. I also LOVE food and love to cook :) I tried to get a Masters in Philosophy after I graduated from Business School, but I just ended up dropping out... I worked in a vast range of industries including film making, security, accounting, commerce, consultancy and teaching, but now I am a writer/photographer , journalist, and an automobile test driver. Writing is definitely my passion and I also am addicted to running. I have friends from all across the globe and I have been traveling since I was a baby, in fact I have had a pretty intense life which i would love to share if we ever meet... basically I know a lot about a lot when it comes to traveling and needing help, and so I can also say that I am a helpful person. BUT IN ACTUALITY I REALLY DON'T KNOW MYSELF THAT WELL YET... still exploring my own vast intellect.... : )

IMPORTANT: if you are planning to couch surf with me please read my couch info carefully... I get way too many CS requests and unfortunately I am really busy right now :/


DUDE... I could write for hours and hours.

maybe i can share one of my favorite quotes by William Shakespeare
"MY crown is in my heart, not in my head, Nor decked with diamonds and Indian stone, Nor to be seen; my crown is called contentment; A crown it is that seldom kings enjoy".

I try the best I can to be a good human being. I dont know what life is, but I love to talk, argue and debate about it whenever possible. I think we shouldnt worry about our little problems because there are so many bigger injustices happening out in the world.

nothing in excess, everything in moderation,

I am a life observer and soldier.. a world traveler and resident.. a peace keeper and creator.. I am the light and the darkness, the good and the very bad..
I am an admirer and a harsh critic.. a lover and a hater............
I can go on and on
see what you got me into.....................

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was extremely active, but since CS changed their website its gotten a little slow. I still get a lot of requests for couches but unfortunately I cannot host as much as I would like to, and also msot of the requests I get are not the best. I take people on tours all the time but mostly I take my CS guests out to have a great time (drinking dancing eating traveling and just some great conversations) I go out of my way to make sure every CS understands India and accepts it for what it is and at the same time show them the time of their life :)

I have also partied, hosted and surfed in California
and met other CSers while traveling through Europe and Asia.. I like to meet Csers whenever I can :)

CS California was amazing... the Csers there are soo different but still sooo awesome like in India.. I have fallen in love with CS, without which i would never have met the people i have met and never have experienced the things i have... THANK YOU CS for "making the world a better place for you and for me and the entire human race"... MJ RIP

Music, Movies, and Books

ALL KINDS OF MUSIC... seriously i love it all as long as it sounds good..ha ha.. im very diverse .. i grew up on Michael Jackson when i was a little kid, and then moved up to Heavy Metal and Gangsta Rap when I was a teenager.. Yeah.. pretty diverse huh !!!

i have too many favorites for books mostly Noam Chomsky and Stiglitz are my favorite political writers, then there is always Dr Seuss.... the greatest :)

movies.. godfather (classic), star wars , lord of the rings, matrix, shawshank redemptions, seabiscuit (very inspiring) 300 (amazing), THE HANGOVER (funniest movie ever) and ofcourse 'the other guys', if you havent seen it you really need to :) i love movies in general

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Everything I do is Amazing :) ... cliff jumping, I drove to canada 3 times in a span of 18 hours, I worked as a camera man in LA (really cool), I test drive fast cars and bikes, scube diving in Bali, I also worked as a security guard and got beaten up pretty badly at OZFEST by about 10,000 drunk fans, climbed a pretty small mountain... took us 12 hours... and i almost passed out, para-sailing in Monaco, walking on ice in Duluth MN, skiing at 14000 feet in Kashmir, i also rode my bike unknowingly through a warzone ... ohh yeah... and a lion pissed on me once
