MUST READ THE "HOUSE RULE" Before you place "STAY REQUEST" to us.
This Couchsurfing account is in my name (Piyali Das), but the entire idea of hosting guest (free accommodation) has come from my husband and we all supported it. So most of the places on this profile (website) page in our description, I tried to address myself as "WE" not "I". In fact our entire family is eager to involve in this kind of voluntary activities and offer good services. Our main motto is to share education and experience with people from different countries.
I am Piyali Das 31 (F) year’s old lady, mainly housewife, but I have 2 separate small businesses that I need to look after. Before marriage I was a village girl, so could not go far ahead with education. Before reaching to graduation level, I got married. As I was not very studious, I did not want to continue my study further. In my family, everybody speaks/knows better English except me. I have TWINS 11 years old sons and that is my pride and specialty, otherwise I am a simple Bengali girl/housewife.
a) Discuss about potential business opportunity in INDIA and sharing new business ideas.
b) Making harmless and similar minded friends from all over the world.
d) Partying: Occasional (not frequently)
Me and my husband is having a very special dream jointly. We wish, our two sons will lead this country (India) one day. Tirelessly we are working/planning and thinking on it. We want that our 2 sons will become extreme high level educated person (not scholar) so that they will be capable to lead this country one day with a complete different thought but better direction. We need courage from all our friends and well-wishers.
We are from middle class Bengali family (not rich)
We think guest is the other face of God. Who knows when a new guest (God) will come in our life and will educate us with new ideas and thoughts.
Before you come to our place, you must know that we/our family is having a very simple mentality and simple life style. We stay in a very normal family home, No AC. If that is fine with you......we will be happy to host you.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
WHY WE ARE ON COUCHSURFING?
We believe in “One World One Country”. We dream about a country having no boundary. Couch Surfing Platform can fulfil our dream to some extend by giving us chance to invite new friends from all over the world. We like people to come to our country/home from every corner of the world as a guest, so that we can gift them a good environment and beautiful memories. We would like to share the cultures, traditions, music, food and many more things of our country with our guest. Also we would like to know facts about their country as well.
We are very keen to share and discuss about potential business opportunity in INDIA and sharing new business ideas.
We believe in “Atithi devo bhabo” (Guest is God), so all of our guests are equally important/valuable to us, no matter their nationality, religion, beliefs, gender, age, sexual orientation or experience in Couchsurfing........ We always try to contribute our fullest possible services within our financial capacity towards every guest, does not matter how rich/poor guest is.

Music, Movies, and Books
MUSIC: Generally we like that kind of music which feels good on ear and touches our heart. We love Music but there is no certain category of music that we specifically love. We like instrumental music and some music mostly classical based. In short any tune which gives comfort to our ear and ease to mind, we love.
MOVIES: We would like to watch such kind of movies which gives us a special message and increases our knowledge. We do not believe that movies are for entertainment only. We believe movie has a strong power to educate people easily. We like/prefer to watch only those kind of movies which gives us education directly/indirectly.
BOOKS: We are keen to read those kind of books which gives us a moral support and helps us to know the world in different directions
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
SETU - অভিন্ন বাংলা (A Non-Profit Organization)
With the request & encouragement of few Bangladeshi friends, a decision has been taken to make a Temporary halt place for all Bangladesh Citizen to stay here free in India, West Bengal and Kolkata as a part of Couch Surfing. To build-up more stronger bridge between West Bengal & Bangladesh (এপার বাংলা & ওপার বাংলা), we have taken this decision. We have already initiated this project with the help of few Bangladeshi & Kolkata friends.
We have named this organization as “ABHINNA BANGLA” (অভিন্ন বাংলা).
We are inviting Bangladeshi friends to visit “ABHINNA BANGLA” in Kolkata and participate in our project. We are seeking support/help from all Bangladeshi + Indian friends and encourage us.
PROJECT: To make temporary accommodation/stay in Kolkata for all BANGLADESHI for FREE
Only to build up much stronger relationship/bridge between Bangladesh & West Bengal/India, we have started below activities;
1. Many patients come from Bangladesh to Kolkata for medical treatment, we are dedicated to offer them confirmed FREE accommodation here in “ABHINNA BANGLA” Kolkata.
