About Me

I am a Yogi, operating the top things in my life from the bottom of my heart. Love cycling and dream of living a simple life in the country side by the Western Ghats of South India.

I'm a wanderer without a mission trying to create new life experiences for myself and inspire my community to go beyond their limits. I feel we're living in interesting times and the world needs less heroes and more travelers who have journeyed inward. People ignited by wanderlust can transform the globe.


My life should truly be a full self expression of freedom and joy as I explore the cosmos, outward and within.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I lived in Kodaikanal (home to a one-of-a-kind wilderness) briefly and I was hosting travelers there. CS is thoroughly enjoyable and some of the best memories I cherish. A backpacker on the road is completely open and receptive to life and new experiences that come along - this is the kind of space in which I enjoy interacting and sharing.


When I'm not a corporate slave on the weekends, I explore the Indian wilderness and sit with my eyes closed to expand my inner space.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Moved out of the big city life in Bangalore and lived a simple adventurous life in Kodai. Opened me up completely. Realized how much garbage I had gathered in my mind and my body living in the city.

Teach, Learn, Share


Apart from this, I can teach whatever you feel I'm good at after knowing me.

I want to learn to play the ukulele and add more simple but healthy recipes to my cooking list.

The 'Sharing Economy' is going to be the future currency of the world.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Apart from sharing my space and food, hosts will get an authentic experience into the life of an Indian youth and with it get a flavor of what India truly is. :)
