About Me

Atheist, Anarchist.

Timex in digital age. Likes books, rain, campfires, symphonies, live concerts and theatricals.

Passionate about sea, sky diving, star gazing, nature, traveling, learning, reading, hiking, biking, chocolates and old monk!!

More of an off-the-beaten track guy who loves to live curious, dive into the unknown & explore.

I am an im-perfectionist, planning is the last thing I do.

I am involved in various sorts of Information Technology stuff but I secretly hate technology.

Hacker(in a classic sense) by profession & Traveler by passion.

I enjoy people who people come with less terms & conditions.

There are a lot of philosophies out there about life, love & everything else but I haven't found mine yet. I'm seeking answers but are my questions appropriate?

“If we’re not supposed to dance, Why all this music?” - Gregory Orr

"The idea is not to live forever; The idea is to live now!"

"To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world." - Freya Stark

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hosting, when ever I can.
Surfing, if I ever get a chance to.
Lately I'm not so much into small talks but I'm always up for conversations over coffee!

Interests

Off the beaten tracks.

Languages - at the moment it's Spanish & Turkish.

Philosophy - stuff like Taoism, Buddhism.(No Paulo Coelho, Eckhart kind of BS plz)

Survival-ism - because milk does not come from markets, safety does not come from cops, 'news' is not something that happens to other people.

Martial Arts - For only those who can fight can be at peace

Stand-up comedy
Human Rights
Farming
Alternative/Sustainable ways of living

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lots of trekking in wilderness of tropical forests.
Drenching under some wild waterfalls in India.

Having conversations with Maoists in remote Indian villages.

Accompanying Special Task Force in raids against illegal poaching.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am interested in learning languages, off the beaten tracks around the world, your traveling stories... almost anything

I know a bit of computers stuff, survival-ism and end of the world communication(yeah, ham radios). I wonder if there is anyone who would want to learn those things.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Share random laughs at particularly nothing.
Stranger-than-fiction stories that I have witnessed first hand through my travels and work.
Information on off the beat tracks in Southern India and NGOs across India.
