About Me

I love to talk (a lot) and learn about people's unique stories and share mine too, with my hosts and surfers. I'm really grateful for every single person I've met through this platform, the experiences have been amazing. The reason I host and surf is to make life long friends.

I host sparingly, preferably on weekends so that we can spend some time together. I consider myself an amazing tour guide, I would insist on showing you around. :P

Beyond my work and travel, I also try to contribute meaningfully to social justice movements and environmental activism around the world. If you're active or curious in this space, we'll have a lot to talk about.

This poem as birthday gift from an old friend explains the best of me, besides being an ego massage :P

He's an eccentric who cherishes liberty,
With a smile that banishes sorrow,
His jokes indicative of perpetual puberty,
He lives believing 'do not today if you can do it tomorrow'

With a German had he his fling,
Yet he lost as there was a single supply and many a taker,

As a leader he is neither the cruel tyrant nor the kind king,
For his affinity for diplomacy makes him a benevolent dictator.

Let this birthday commemorate an auspicious start, 
I want him to know ever needs a shoulder to walk that extra mile,
Even if life tries to tear our camaraderie apart,
It's our friendship that isn't fragile.

हम स्वर हैं झोपड़पट्टी के, रंगमहल के फाग नहीं !
आत्मकथा बागी लपटो की, गंधर्वो के राग नहीं !
हम चराग हैं रात रात भर, दुनिया की खातिर दहते हैं !
अपनी तैराकी उलटी हैं,धारा में मुर्दे बहते हैं !

Teach, Learn, Share

Though I have no tangible evidence to support this claim, my nicknames include: Guru ji, Baba ji & Megamind. I have been told I'm really good at giving 'gyan' on every possible topic. So you may expect some of it coming your way if we interact. :P

Also teach basic Yoga to beginners.

I believe we're here to learn every moment we exist and which is why I never believed in formal education. Teach me what you know! :)
