My name is Roopak. I am a Hindu living in Delhi for last 12 years with my family consisting of my wife and two children.

I also run a successful in-person Airbnb Cooking Experience. During this Experience our Guests used to take a house tour & we used to show them the small temple in our home. We felt that our Guests were always eager to know about Hindu culture & customs. Therefore, we wish to bring our Guests close to Hindu traditions through this Experience.

We truly believe that through 75 minute interactive Experience, we can educate our Guests about Hindu Gods, mythologies behind each God, how Hindus pray to Gods, various festivals related to each God and Hindu culture & customs.

The Experience is very creatively curated which the Guests shall surely feel immersed in.

My wife, Nidhi, shall be my co-host during the Experience.

This is my 2nd airbnb online experience with Roopak and it was definitely equally amazing and intriguing as the first one. I loved his personalization and in-depth knowledge of the topics that he covered. his presentationwas very colorful and so was his house tour. Roopak is a great story teller and a very humble individual and I'd highly recommend this experience for anyone who wants to understand the basics of Hinduism and Diwali.

Learning about Hinduism can be confusing as there is so much to remember. Roopak, however, made it simple and fun, while still sharing a lot of information. He is a friendly and approachable host and I appreciated the insight he offered. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this experience!

Roopak’s presentation about Hindu Gods & Diwali was very informative. He does a great job personalizing the presentation. He patiently answered my questions. His comprehensive knowledge is definitely worth it for those wanting to learn more about India & Hinduism. Roopak and his wife were gracious hosts in virtually showing me their home’s elegant Diwali decorations!

Too Pam was a wonderful host, providing insight into Hindu religion and culture. He was very charming and knowledgeable and provided an interactive experience. I attended during Diwali season and was treated to wonderful views of household shrines and understanding of devotion during this festival time. The visual aspects were beautiful and accompanied by excellent narrative.
