About Me


Finding inner peace & eternal bliss


I teach hatha yoga ( and make art ( :) Have been living in this fantastic city since 2010, although I go to India a few months per year.

I actually came to Berlin for vacation for a few days in 2009, fell in love with the city, mostly thanks to my amazing couchsurfing hosts, came back a year later without knowing anyone else and started my life here. Best decision ever!

Grew up in small town Lund and huge city of Kolkata with a Swedish hippie father, a Bengali mother and two brothers.

I've travelled alot in my life, mostly to India, Latin America(I lived in Buenos Aires) and the States, but also studied Science of Religion, Judaism and Gender studies at Lund university.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS ambassador, I surf, host and create events sometimes.


I couchsurfed in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, San Francisco, Istanbul, Greece and various places in Latin America, I hosted in Lund, Buenos Aires and Berlin.

Beautiful meetings and experiences.


Hatha yoga, meditation, food, dancing, painting, travelling, hanging out, concerts.

I am also really interested in philosophy and religion, especially queer and post-colonial theology (and pretty much a nerd about Holy Scriptures..:)

Music, Movies, and Books

My friends accuse me of being stuck in the 90's and that the only reason I practice yoga is to eventually acquire the yogic ability of time travelling so that I can go to a rave in 1996...

So yes, I love 90's movies / music / fashion. ;)
