About Me


Get going..


Hmm.. I'm a happy go lucky colorful person.. I love people who do things different and are not running the rat race, love seeing the individualism in a person. As a passion I design, observe, analyse and learn through exchange

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures learning sharing and opening paths in life rather than just running the same old ones! Also part of the Rural CS group and the WWOOF group, waiting to have as many volunteers from world over to have a precious exchange on our blissful farm. A road less taken by tourists (which most CSers are not) We're very close to a beautiful forest and tiger reserve. I love and respect CS and yes its not unexpected to receive a few random non genuine messages, but now its a bit too much and it needs to go up on my profile.
DO NOT SEND me random requests of friendship describing the beauty of my eyes and smile & irrelevant crap. I receive most of them from my own country so please don't make us think that Indian CSers are shady! (I guess if you went through the entire profile you wouldn't write in at all)


I had some great CS experience in Italia where I didn't host or get hosted but met a whole lot of interesting CSers watching live graffiti and making Vin Brule in the freezing cold! After which I've hosted a couple of people in India with my family and they've all been unique and great experiences :)


I love people watching, color, intricate secrets from cultures that I can't read about but that comes across from people of those cultures.
