About Me

Been born and lived in Kolkata all my life. Love meeting new people and exploring more of my amazing city. I've done a lot of things in my city and could offer loads of suggestions of what to do and where to go. Meeting someone from out of town would be the perfect way of me sharing what I know and discovering more myself.

I love meeting people from all walks of life and from all around the world and what better way of doing it than through this?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Explore the planet making friends wherever I go and show travelers around my city depending on my schedule. Its so much more fun to meet the locals than travelling as a tourist.

I didn't really have a chance to give this a proper go, but was recommended by one my friends and finally think its time.


Amateur photography, philately, badminton, long walks, movies, refueling at some of my favorites bars in the city, jasmine tea....
