About Me

* fully vaccinated *

*** my hosting locations are Borivali or Vasai - both locations are away from the City centre but very easily accessible by public transport ***
****Absolutely intolerant to smoking and smokers 😡 🚭****( non negotiable- no smoking throughout your stay and our interactions . Cant have a packet as well if you are being hosted- pls make sure 😊)
*****If i am unable to host you , pls don't ask me for other host recommendation, I am not part of any local groups. You can refer to the reference left by me for other community members. If you still ask me my answer will be for you to find hostels 😜*****

"One day's acquaintance thousand days friend"is my latest philosophy of life .

I am a young farmer and an ex banker . I am connected with a rural sustainability project in a tribal village for last 10 years in the outskirts of Mumbai. I am transitioning to get full-time into natural and sustainable farming and give back to the society.

i am also trying my hands on aromatherapy consultation using the essential oils grown from farmlands in Kashmir.

I am a single by choice simple and transparent guy 😜✌️.

I believe in FIRE Movement (Financial Independence Retire Early)

I also want be a minimalist but am not close to that as of now ...but somewhere my journey has begun.

I have also started a production company in the name of " post5pmproduction" which is into creating theatre and short films.

I am moved by love . Love makes life live long .. sharing is caring . I believe in random acts of kindness.

I can host only 1 solo Traveller at this time. I stay with my parents. They use the bed room for themselves. I live out of the living room where there is an additional couch.
I have a basic setup.. ( No Ac. No WiFi) but pretty peaceful neighborhood surrounded by greenery.
I am non vegetarian for food habits. I've recently started a diet and I eat only twice in a day at some fixed timing. But you are free to eat as you like. I Cannot support vegans or people with special eating habits.Vegetarians are welcome though.
I am a selfie addict 😁..So every moment we spend together has to be captured..... And I love to ((hug)).. Teddy Bear hug.deep rooted hugs.I love to pamper and get pampered....

Smoking or use of any kind of drugs strictly prohibited.You can't even have any such items in your custody..Please strictly refrain...
I can try and fulfill any one wish of yours....So do let me know.
I am always in search of my next best..!..That's the reason we are meeting ....believe i am a world citizen.
believe in destiny and Karma...and definitely what goes around comes around..
believe in making things happen to you and me
instinctively-like strangers and travel...
i like my guests to be around only when i am around at my place. You have to go out for good day trips 8am to 8pm if u have to be hosted during weekdays.
Couchsurfing is mostly based on references that people leave to other people to help the community to understand what kind of couchsurfer you are or who is going to sleep at your place or meet you in person.
I will definetely leave you a reference but you are supposed to leave me one too. Because it will remain like a diary of so many meetings and friendships.

Strangely I've started to snore at night ..so people hosting me or requesting for hosting..kindly note 😋
I generally don't like to travel with a wet towel in my backpack..so please please share me a towel if you are hosting me 🙈😊.
I have mastered the art of soothing head massage using hot oil...is up for takes and herbal tea....with my secret concoction.... provided I have all ingredients.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

share my space with the world citizens who share my interests ,,,and give it a all new dimension .
Teach me something new and make me experience their way of life
I want to make a difference..by culling out boundaries..and want to learn about similarities in culture , life styles , circumstances ,thoughts, feelings ..across time zones
Make an attempt for us to believe the world is indeed a tiny place to live..

My CS experience - while I am prompt on my messages I expect others to follow the same.... My plan depends on yours... So if you are interacting with me.. Keep some.time.aside during our pre hosting discussions...


I am more into things wherein you spend less and enjoy more..simple things can make me happy - earthen pot consistency cold water , summer rains , rainbow , cows grazing over meadows , sound of the flowing water , whistle of a passing train , thunder and lightning , waves , snowfall...

Music, Movies, and Books

Indian classical,Sufi, I enjoy some world music fusion - Indo balcan music
Musical theatre

I am a great fan of 3D movies , Fairytales, Mountain adventure movies ( BANFF)

Books - Non fiction stuff by Ruskin bond ( My greatest mentor and i've had the privilege to meet him every year)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Took a 5 month sabbatical from work and did an awesome India travel...This was completely influenced by the CS folks i've met in the past ...

I along with a group for friends have started a weekend travel with a purpose concept - wherein we do a village visit and conduct some community work.This we have been able to do month on month for last six years..and it seems to get stronger .Off late we are also involved in a lot of children related initiatives.

Teach, Learn, Share

i'd rather learn - i am completely a jack of all trades..

What I Can Share with Hosts

Quality time, Show them around the city after work, weekend trips into the woods, food and IndiAn culture,bollywood movies....let me know any other thing..lets try n make things happen..
We can watch some live theatre...
