About Me


Always to shine, to shine everywhere/to the very deeps of the last days/to shine— ...and to hell with everything else! That is my motto— and the sun’s! (Mayakovsky and the Sun, V.Mayakovsky)


I'm a digger... .


You can read the mission above. Someone who doesn't know me think that I have a negative attitude to live, but I call it realistic.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf, I host (ed), and I could meet for coffee. Currently, I am living in Mexico and can't host people, but we could meet up somewhere.


I hosted 6 times in Goa until my landloard made an ultimatum, 'Either me or your friends' and because 'me' meant 'flat' - I choose the first option. But the damage was done and I was started searching for another place in Goa.
I surfed a lot of times in Bombey when I joined a NGO but didn't have a place to stay in the city...so...I surfed. But everyday's thoughts where I would be sleeping tonight...boy, they were killing me and I found a paying guest house.
I prefer meeting over coffee. I can't stand big crowd - cs meetups are closed for me in this sense.


I like observing human behavior, drawing conclusions, formulating theories etc. That's why psychology and philosophy lead my life.

Music, Movies, and Books

"If you are like me, your wine preferences vary with the weather, the seasons, and what you are eating."The same is with music, books, and films. Today I listen to jazz, tomorrow move to rock music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A child. I am still amazed when I look at children, I can't even imagine that a few years ago, it had the weight around 200 g, can't think and anticipate information.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some drawing, testless-food-cooking, how to appear in an unusual and weird situation, and prepare good coffee.
