About Me


Back to leading a boring life, for now. But soon, my dear, very soon...


An unwilling amoralist. (That calls for a lot of explaining, I know. Ask me.)

I am perpetually amazed by how much I gain from my travel experiences irrespective of whether they are good or bad. The bad ones make for funnier stories anyway. I ask a lot of questions. Sometimes I don't wait for the answers. I love talking about philosophy. People say talking to me gives them ideas. But they never say what kind. I can be very very sarcastic. Sometimes my sarcasm is so badass no one gets it. In my defence I do try to balance that out by laughing at myself, once in a while. If there's one thing I love, it's change. I love the countryside, I love traveling, I love the cities, I love partying, I love meeting people - all as long as they keep things changing.


Changes every couple of hours. (More explanation to do, I know, I know.)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host, surf, hang out, freak out, learn, be amazed.


Yet to start, can't wait for it!

Update: It's begun, and it's been awesome so far! And now... NYC, here I come!

Update 2: Whew, too much fun traveling makes for too many missed buses and flights. Now where are those trains, gotta strike them off my list, too!

Update 3: Well, I'm back home after about five months of incessant traveling, and I gotta admit I'm a wee bit fatigued. Now for some laid-back times.


Okay, I'm just gonna throw in random words that first pop into my head when I think of what I like to think/talk about. Logic. Morality. Languages. Society and culture. Neuroscience. Music. Truth. Travel.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to list (and hell, I want to leave something for us to talk about when we meet!), but here's a few. Apocalypse Now. Watchmen. Fight Club. Led Zeppelin. Floyd. The Doors. Frankenstein. Catch-22. Bartimaeus.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Paragliding. Thadiyandamol. Snow. Curdrice.
