About Me

CURRENT MISSION
I hope to become some one I will look up to, if I am given the chance of growing up again.

ABOUT ME
I am researcher by profession and I search for simplicity and beauty in people, things, situations. I am learning to appreciate beauty and also convey my feelings of beauty to others! I feel that every person is a treasure of beauty and I try my best to discover these treasures in people ;)
Being a researcher adds more dimensions of beauty I can appreciate and I hope to capitalize on it --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbFM3rn4ldo

PHILOSOPHY
If in doubt, f***

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I host and i try to get hosted, you know it is difficult being a male on CS!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
Has been fun till now. I hope it continues!

After some experiences in CS i thought I should add this note:
1) When I host some one I do wish to know them and their perspective of life. I think it enriches me. Unfortunately i have had some guests who usually leave their luggage in my house and just come to pick it up after two days. I feel this is against the spirit of CS and preferably avoided.
2) Next is a bit of a touchy issue. I have met two extreme views of CS: a) CS is basically a dating/sexual encounter site and b) all CS relations should be platonic. I do not subscribe to either view. I think, the first is unethical and the second illogical. I received quite a few requests from homosexuals for some thing more than a CS experience. Though i respect them and appreciate they being honest, my orientation happens to be different and so, guys you are knocking at the wrong door :( If you are an interesting female, I may consider it :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I usually spend time with the guests to get to know them. I like to know people, in spite of me being a loner. As a host, when i am free (usually in the evenings and weekends) I like to show my city to the guests.
