About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn as much as I can, while I can!

ABOUT ME

I was raised in Dubai but I love India, my country. I love my freedom. Especially so, cuz I'm still discovering myself. I keep an open-mind about a lot of things, especially to new experiences! I am crazy about other cultures and people! I am a sucker for intricate designs and like to take pics of mother nature.

As an AIESECer, I'd taken the leap to travel to China for some social work. Also, I've been on bike trips in India. Love my TB350 and I'm always looking forward to the next trip.

PHILOSOPHY

It's not worth it if you're not happy.

I live life for the experiences it guarantees. And by far, the one of the most interesting experience has been meeting different kind of people and understanding them. I also love taking adventures and packing for on-the-spur-of-the-moment trips.

I love to guide visitors around India and would obviously share my experiences with hosts when I travel.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had a great Couchsurfing experience in Suzhou! The place was awesome and I was helped a lot by my host. I was directed in the right directions and thus enjoyed my short stay there =)

Another CS experience was in Beijing where I lived with 2-3 other CSers and saw the true diversity of CS!

Music, Movies, and Books

I just love Movies!! I have no real favourites. Whenever someone asks me for a favourite I usually cite the latest movie I saw!
I used to be a book freak till sometime back. So, I would have read all the children's books famous in India and UAE. Still pushing my luck to get back into being bookish!
Music is always a passion. I feel something is missing in the area when no music is playing!! But I am more into the tune of the song rather than its lyrics!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rock climbing near Tatanagar in India. It was a great experience. I never knew I had the hands for a rock climber.
Black Belt in Shotokan Karate! Love the control it gives to your body.
Climbed the Great Wall of China! And did it where there was no one around, scary at first especially with all the slopes!!!
Della Adventures at Konegaon in Lonavala is a place to go when you're trying to go around to places around Mumbai. Amazing collection of adventure activities. The Rocket Launcher pushed me 4.5 floors up into the air!

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to share my Indian culture to anyone willing to learn about it.

One of the things I want to learn is the different living styles across the world. I want to learn why people are the way they are! The conditions and philosophies that lead to the making of a person!

I've gained a few passions like riding (TB350), photography and travelling on the way and would love to share experiences and enjoy it with any like-minded people!
