About Me

"It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice".
"Success is in giving and helping other people".
"Quiet - the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking".

Pretty much a conclusive summary of the kind of person I am and my beliefs :)
To add a couple more points, you can generally find me getting overtly excited about cats and melodious music. I give that extra bit of care and attention to musicians.
The third quote might give you the hint that i'm not sociable. Not the case folks, it just means I prefer my alone time sometimes, and not always instantly ready for shout out parties :D But hey, who doesn't like to groove?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

So thanks to a lot of spam on my mails, other social networking websites, I've recently acquired this fad of travelling around the world. Done with UAE, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. Lot more plans ahead. Realized how terribly difficult it is to find an affordable place to stay. Well, so that fellow travelers in India don't face similar difficulties, I'd definitely be happy to share my place :) Apart from that, I can imagine how much fun it's going to be meeting new people around the world from Couchsurfing :)

Interests

Music (I play the keyboard, pianica and a bit of guitar and drums), pencil sketching, roller skating, salsa, math, and puzzles :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything that's melodious is perfect! Not a fan of EDM.

Movies, umm, i love Horror :D Otherwise, anything that incites interest works for me :)

Haven't been an avid reader but I follow startups, traveling blogs and a bit of politics :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Became non-religious.

Teach, Learn, Share

One day if i go broke, I'm confident that i could survive with just my skills (limited) in music and start teaching. In general, i love to explain the intricacies of music to people :)
I also love teaching math to kids!
Would love to have people teach me various forms of dance from their culture!

What I Can Share with Hosts

A good heart (not romance-wise, but a gentle hallmark), an undying interest in exploring new facets of food :D
I have a cozy 1 bedroom apartment in Koramangala, Bangalore. Can definitely host a guest or 2 :)
