want 2 know this world better!!!
In the beginning I may be quiet quiet, after a while , if it "clicks" with people and I feel more confident, I'm an open enthusiastic guy & veggie since childhood. I'd like to meet people from all around the world and discover the nicest spots on earth.
I'm a little bit sportive (i.e. I really like to sport; like jogging, bicycling, ...;but I don't do it a lot.
I definitely believe that contributing with Couchsurfing I'm helping to make a better world. Where the people will understand more each other and have a better idea of how life is short and that we must enjoy it intensely.
Doesn't matter what part of the world you live, your religion, your color and whatever else, you must be committed helping people and try to make the world a better place to live.

Traveling is my life philosophy. I love to get my backpack and travel around the world.
I'm also a computer guy, I love technology and I have worked as a software engineer.
Meeting people is always amazing, I love make new friends and during my trips I always find someone interesting who I can share experiences with.
In my opinion traveling is the best way to enjoy life.
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies = cant remeber as of rite now... it changes every month..or week
Music = depends on mood
Books = not into reading.hmmm...but books are not always to be read..a lot of pics interests me...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was desperately in need of a book from Italy. That book was not available within India & I've tried the entire possible online source to find the book but I didn't find. Then I've decided to post a message in CS group of Italy.
Out of my post one member from Rome, didn't like me for sending a post for help in his group & in anger he revert badly with some bad words in his language. after that I thought peoples in Italy are not helpful.
After that a long discussion has been done between the members of Italy in the language other than English, which I could not understand.
It was really amazing to see my inbox flooded with e-mail, apology from the peoples of Italy for wrong behaviour of one member. Apart from all the controversy, they have also helped a lot in finding the book. It is nice to see peoples from Italy are very helpful & friendly.
Thanks a lot Italy. You all are amazing.
