About Me


To be present to the miracle of being alive.


An Escapist, idealist even.A non-conformist, an oxymoron(Hardcore
Secularist:D) if you will. Perpetually between the devil and the deep blue sea !

Enthusiastic - ready to meet life half way! Silly - the fact that it happens to be my ultimate wet dream of intelligence notwithstanding :D. Live to converse, interact ! :) People Lover:)A work in progress perhaps- Trying to be the change that will fill the void in my existence. Feminist , for lack of a better word.Constantly trying to be present to the miracle of being alive.A contradiction in terms, a blend of opposites. Have a sense for the dramatic - every last bit of me!:D. By default, live in a make beleive world of ephemeral fantasy!:)

Hopelessly,Incurably romantic. Passionate about living, learning and loving.Call them my raison d'etre:)

In a constant state of flux between my dreams and reality - in a precipice-the blur has become non existent. Forever trying to simplify the general to the specific - and conceptualising the specific to the general!
Live a million lives, Die a thousand deaths.
Sensitive , Conscious,Aware.
Simplicity, Honesty and Humility are big turn ons.

There, you have it!

P.S: Yes, You got that dead right. Its a text book case of Reality Distortion Syndrome :)


Each of us is a star; Sometimes we shine with others, sometimes we twinkle alone, Sometimes, when we least know it, we make someone's wish come true :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I intend to do some serious travelling over the next year or so. Couch surfing is as good a gift as I could have got for light years ahead.
