About Me

Things that interest me: Environment, Coffee, Food, Cooking, Science, Astronomy, Music (things keep changing).
What I can be interested in: anything that you're passionate about (and it doesn't actively cause anyone harm), your experiences.
What doesn't interest me: small talk, impassionate conversations.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people while I travel and to learn more about the places I visit from the locals - what better way to know a place than from the locals! I would love a cultural exchange rather than someone just wanting a couch to sleep on and it's the same when I'm looking for a host.

I'm open to all sorts of discussions and always excited about discovering new interests if you can introduce me to interesting stuff!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music:
I love music - I can listen to music all day long, I can multi-task music with almost anything - cooking, eating, reading, studying, sleeping, doesn't matter! Music is the magic of life!
Pink Floyd ❤
Progressive rock, classic rock, blues rock, blues, blues jazz, classic jazz, vocal jazz, instrumental jazz, classical piano, Indian classical, ghazals, old country, country rock, classic bollywood, indie rock, indie pop, unplugged and live versions of a lot of songs, coke studio pakistan, house, electro, techno, trip hop, and dance music too.
That said, I'm always keen to discover new artists and genres! But I usually don't have a lot of affinity for most main stream music being produced in the last decade...
Just to be sure you read my profile, at end your stay request write the name of your favourite song and the name of the artist.

Books:
Zen and the art of Motorcycling (currently reading), The Fountainhead, Lolita, Atlas Shrugged, Love in the time of Cholera, One hundred years of solitude, Ken and Abel, The Kite runner, A thousand splendid suns, And the mountains echoed, Midnight's Children, Satanic Verses, The Enchantress of Florence, The White Tiger, Freakonomics, To kill a mocking bird, 1984, Moby Dick, Catch-22, Ulysses, The Divine comedy: inferno, We The Living, The Bell Jar, The catcher in the rye, Dan Brown - all titles, Sidney Sheldon - most titles, Agatha Christie - most titles, John Grisham - most titles, Jeffrey Archer - most titles, P G Woodehouse - most titles, Train to Pakistan, The glass house, The Bhagwad Gita, Mahabharata, Ramayana.

Movies:
The list is way too long to ever be penned down, and no, I don't have a favorite movie, there are a lot of movies which I could watch over and over!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rode a motorcycle on the highest motorable road in the world and also through 20 Indian states.
I've seen the moon shine on a full moon night over a salt marsh, and it's absolutely mesmerising.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you something about Indian food and recipes, and perhaps some cultural anecdotes. I love to learn interesting things and I'm definitely up for anything you are willing to teach me!
If you're also interested, I can also teach you how to make good coffee (well, I'm no expert, but I can surely make better coffee than is served at 90% cafés). I can also share my coffees with you - ask me!
Or maybe we can share our views on environmental problems and solutions.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to cook delicious Indian food if you are up for it - I usually carry the secret ingredient with me wherever I go! Always up to try new recipes and dishes. Now, I'm no expert but I can show you how to make great coffee (unless you have a coffee machine).
