About Me

I'm a film maker and visual artist living in Mumbai and running an arts studio. I like the little things in life, the cracks and crevices, musty books. It's the melancholia of life which excites and interests me the most. But mostly, I simply love.

I read a lot, only write with fountain pens, currently obsessed with Gulzar's poetry and love absorbing beauty. I live in the moment and continue to explore.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've met the most wonderful people on CS including my fiance.
I travel. I host. I wander. I hug.


I'm interested in anything which is mystical, magical or just plainly different from everyday experiences.

I love finding the extraordinary in the mundane.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love love the movies. So much so that I make them. And continue to experiment with the medium. As far as watching them, I devour them. Everything from artsy French to simplistic Iranian or in-your-face Bollywood or even we're-so-good-at-this Hollywood. The list can fill up pages.

I have a weird assorted taste in music. I mostly use it as a writing aid. Jazz and Ella are currently dominating the list though.

In books, I have a massive bookshelf. But I must confess that I rarely get time to read nowadays.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lots. But that's something to be narrated over whisky or a cup of tea.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach Hindi, making Spicy Indian food, folding a paper boat, writing a good love letter or the subtle workings of the largest democracy on the planet.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food, space, a few laughs and some fresh air in Mumbai city.
