I am a 1969 Uk born male of anglo Indian background with a deep interest in the arts esp. music, travel, good cooking , healthy eating , fitness [swimming,cycling and bushwalking], and simple uncluttered non materialistic living.
I am left wing, unconventional , have so far had a varied and somewhat interesting life and I love cats.
I don't drink or smoke but bent and black humour is a big part of my personality.
I have a post grad. education and I am tri lingual.
I am humourous, arty, and original
I like getting out into the national parks and walking. In fact I am a bit of a trekking nerd. Getting away from cars, electricity and walking all day in the wilderness and camping in the wild on multi night hikes really floats my boat .
I was learning Farsi as my 5th language but it was making my brain hurt ....
I can cook really well esp, Home style Indian food.
I teach music and languages at home and do some volunteer work for the Asylum seeker resource centre In Footscray .
I go to two book group meetings each month when I am in Melb. and so I read quite a bit of fiction and like novels very much .I like cycling along the main Yarra Trail on the weekends. I could n't live without swimming laps .
I hope to visit Vietnam, London and Southern Spain next year as part of a trip abroad.
*Shudh Hindi aur Nafeez urdu achchi tarah sey jaanta hun.
I am good at communicating and making people laugh .
I swim very well so I won't end up like Brian Jones, Natalie Wood or Harold Holt!
I am getting good at life and living.It comes without an instruction manual .
visit my space to see and hear some samples

spicy Indian veg. food
6.1 my cat.
[the last 2 don't go together thank goodness;-p]
Some other thoughts:
1]the world will only do something 'drastic' when
the oil finally runs out
2]Most people live in fear of some sort and live a life untrue to their real dreams and wishes.
3} life is not a dress rehearsal
4] Travel opens your eyes
to how the world REALLY is
5} TV and the internet are no longer forces for potential good.
6}Most people on "Facebook" who you have as "friends" wouldn't come and see you face to face even if you were dying!
7) digital hand held whatchamacallits are dumbing people down & fewer people are actually reading serious novels/books
listening to music properly on quality play back equipment , the way the artists intended it to be heard
asking tough questions about the government.
and health conscious these days.
The worst drugs I ever took came from a prescription pad. The pharmaceutical companies sell some evil stuff .
*I'm not commitment phobic and I do like romantic things. If you are Ms right then I am willing to get into something serious.
*I do like a bit of no strings attached passionate fun too.:-)
*I have never been in a Turkish prison ....
If you have I won't hold it against you.
If you love the arts, esp. music and thinking outside the square then we'd definitely have some common ground.
If you love the idea of travelling to the sub cont. and or other parts of the globe .. then we'd have even more to talk about...:-)
You don't have to love jazz and/or bushwalking but it couldn't hurt either ....
But if you just like and relate to my profile... then that too is a great reason to say hello...!ALSO If you like writing to male pen pals in snail mail in Urdu or Hindi do say Hi!.Writing letters is great, it is nice not to get a bill in the post for a change.
However if you have issues, grief and an airport full of baggage over your ex. please say Hi! to somebody else .......
If you are regular stoner or are tobacco fiend or lean on 'the turps' more than casually then I don't think we'd really click :-( . I like clear heads and hearts .
I vote Greens . If you like the Labourals [sic] or have voted for the LNP then we won't get along. The ALP and the LNP seem to be almost the same on at least 80 % of issues.
Over the years I seem to have had a knack of attracting some very lovely ladies who tend to be 'new age space cases'.I do burn incense , eat lentils, enjoy Ambient music by Brian Eno and a spot of tofu but there is a limit, man.
I am "more old age than new age" as one friend put it.
.If you have 'stalked' me twice then I dare you to send me a message.;-)
