About Me

I have had a unique set of life experiences which make me who I am today. I rediscover and reinvent myself every moment. Never knowing where I will be next but always knowing where I am right now.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet people and form solid friendships. I do it by hosting and surfing with people around the world. Share my life with them, help them on their journey which in turns shapes my own path.

Some of my best friends and experiences were found directly or indirectly through couch surfing. I have learnt a lot from these and it wouldn't be an understatement to say that CS has changed my life.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies - Foreign cinema (Iranian, Japanese, Korean, European), some Hollywood, some Bollywood. 3 iron, kill bill, city of god, hero, fallen angels, y tu mama tambien, children of heaven, do aur do paanch, jaane bhi do yaaron, Dev D, Omkara, No country for old men. I like movies which make you stop and think, movies which make an impact, the ones which make you think about them for a few days.

Music - Alternative, Indie, Electronic, Folk, Live . I'm always willing to listen to new music and share my collection with other people. Some of the artists I like are - Modest mouse, Of montreal, neutral milk hotel, joy division, pink floyd, led zeppelin, Shpongle, DCFC, Daft Punk, The Flaming lips, Deerhunter, Interpol

Books - Mostly fiction with a weakness for Fantasy books. Not a big reader but I'd like to read more. Some of the books I like are The Kite Runner, The life of Pi, Eragon, Haarry Potter, East of eden.
