About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I am Nachiket Marathe, born & raised in Mumbai. I think myself fortunate to born in India though Mumbai is not at all an ideal place to spend. But we are growing very fast and thus, I am compelled to have monetary attachment with Mumbai. I work in one brand consulting & market research agency. Guide my clients from all over the world in consumer insights and marketing strategy.

I am avid listener of Indian classical music. I try to attend most of the free Indian classical / semi-classical music concerts in Mumbai.

I am very down to earth person. Don't have any complexes. I am very calm & composed individual. Like meeting people, chatting, travelling & biking!!

PS - Married since Nov 2013 & both of us like travelling very much :)

PHILOSOPHY

Just be yourself. Never imitate.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have organised one hikes / treks near Mumbai. Mumbai being the starting point of Konkan, the country side of Mumbai is very beautiful consisting mountains and beaches too. Also one can get pure and non-polluted air in the country side of Mumbai. My hikes consist maximum utilisation of efficient & cheap Indian Public transport system.

Besides hikes I do participate in events which are organised in my city. It's nice to meet different people and I have met a lot of people through this Forum.

I also like to cycle & I believe cycling will eventually save the entire world. I have cycled lot across Kokan region in Maharashtra.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have met lot of people, Indians & Foreigners through this forum. I have surfed couches twice. One at Hampi in December 2010 & once at Jaisalmer in July 2011
I am looking forward to surf more and more. Time is the only constraint..!
