About Me


To give myself to those with very little and show them how to create abundance for themselves.........


My friends say that I am extremely helpful and fun to be around and I have pursued a rigorous M.B.A. program from SDA Bocconi (Milan,Italy).

I prefer to relax on weekends (I go out for drinks, party or chill with my friends). I love to talk to different people and hear them telling their stories. However, given a chance to speak, I don't stop talking (partly because of my profession and partly because of genes, may be). There is no silence, whenever I am around and hence people close to me know many stories about me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing has been an amazing experience so far. I love hosting people no matter how much am I occupied with my M.B.A. program. Not only you have a chance to interact with people from different parts of the world and share experiences, but also they may be of great help in the future.

Moreover, Couchsurfing gives you an incentive to travel to other countries (provided you already know someone through couchsurfing). Though a nightmare for Local Hotels, this website provides a cost effective opportunity to know a desired city/country in a much better way.


I love playing Piano, working with social groups and initiating new things.

I ensure that I don't miss out on the other part of my life apart from work. I have made it a point to travel to as many places and meet as many new people as I can in the next few weekends.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love reading biographies of people and business related books. However,of late, I have started studying spiritual stuff too. My current read are Bhagavad Gita, Complete works of Vivekananda, Autobiography of a Yogi & Inner Engineering by Sadhguru.

Talking about movies, I don't get much time to watch movies, but I ensure that I watch 1 movie a week.

I love singing Hindi songs and have been a loyal follower of Hindi music. Moreover, I am into a habit of collecting all best Hindi songs. Name a hindi song, it will be there with me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1) Partying all day and night for a full weekend and crawling back home.

2)Organized a City level rally against Corruption in 2008.

3)Trained more than 4000 students in mathematics/logic.

4)Changed my image of being a studious student to being a student, who loves partying and hardly loves studying.

5) 5 days hike at Triund, Dharamshala in 2016

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn about various mindsets and international cultures.

I can share my deep knowledge about Indians, mathematics, weekend parties, music, Internet.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share my innumerable experiences of Couchsurfing and perspectives . Moreover, I run 4 Gelatarias in Surat and hence can share knowledge of icecream/Gelato too. Since I am a very easy going person, I wouldn't be of any trouble to the hosts.
