About Me


To Travel, visit new places, meet new people and develop friendships that transcend all social, cultural and religious boundaries


I am happy to be me but not so fond of describing myself...please read the references section, you should get an idea..haha...


There's a ton of that.. but I'll list a few here ...

Life is simple, we complicate it
Don't do to others what you wouldn't want to be done to you...
If you really love someone set them free...if they come back to you they were always yours and if they don't they never were
Life is like a bicycle, if you want to keep your balance you gotta keep moving..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I meet people from different countries, cultural backgrounds, professions and develop good relations, meaningful friendships and above all have a fantastic time with them.


I joined CS to make more friends as I was new in the US. But little did I know .. that not only would I have a good time with my new friends.. but I would develop some really close friendships that will last a lifetime...


Meeting new people, hanging out with friends, listening to music, exchanging ideas, exchanging philosophy, playing sports - tennis, soccer, badminton, ping-pong/ table tennis, cricket...watching movies, stand-up comedy, dancing
