About Me


Come to a new city. Explore!!!


Well, I have always hated writing this section. Anyway, to put it in words, I am a guy who loves to travel, loves to know different people and cultures, and loves to indulge in the local culture wherever I get to travel. I know quite a bit about Mumbai(not surprising since I was born and brought up there) and now exploring Paris. and I am more than happy to share that, but would love to know more about other cities and countries as well.


Make the most of now, you'll have more for tomorrow

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, I stay alone in a studio. So, I can host, show the city, party, etc. Just be imaginative and ask.

I do have to go to work, however. So, it is usually not possible for me to show you around during the weekdays. I will however, explain and help you plan your day in Paris. Generally, most of the people I have hosted do the tourist-y stuff during the day and we hang out in the evenings. But, if you happen to come on a weekend, I will gladly show you around.


I have hosted a few people, and found them to be the most fascinating people I have ever met. The wide cultural and linguistic differences make for some great moments.

I have not surfed on anyone's couch yet, but I do plan to the next time I travel.


Adventure sports, football, natural beauty, intelligent conversations, cars and bikes, a bit of computers, and most importantly travel.

I am someone who prefers coffee and deep conversations over useless banter and alcohol ((but am capable of either :-P).

Music, Movies, and Books

I do watch movies, listen to music and read books as well(yes, I do). But to say which of them are most liked by me is just impossible. I cannot possibly recollect everything I have ever liked.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skydiving!!! It has been by far the most extreme thing I have done.

Faced a wild wolf in the Himalayas, Went white-water rafting in the Ganges, and a trek down for about a 1000 feet on snow and ice when the ropeway stopped working in Auli, India. Well, that and everytime I get my hands on an exotic car or score a goal...

Teach, Learn, Share

I am an Computer Science student, so that's one thing I just about understand. And although I am not a great cook, I can show you how to cook some Indian dishes. In return, I would love to try some of your local cuisines, however I am a vegetarian so if you know any vegetarian recipes, that would be great. I also like learning languages, and I can teach you some common phrases that will help you travel in France and India, should you intend to go there.
