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

I also run a successful in-person Airbnb Cooking Experience. During this Experience our Guests used to take a house tour and we used to show them the small temple in our home. We felt that our Guests were always very eager to know about Hindu Gods. We wish to bring our Guests around the world close to Hindu Gods through on-line Experience.

We truly believe that an hour of this Experience can educate our Guests about Indian Gods, mythologies behind each God, how Hindus pray to Gods and different festivals related to each God. My wife, Nidhi shall be my co-host during the Experience.

Celebrate Diwali with Roopak! This is a wonderful experience for yourself or a group. I ended up organizing this as an event and everyone had a great time. Roopak is very knowledgeable, friendly, and an excellent host. He was also very accommodating with the requests I had to make sure everyone in my group could attend. I highly recommend this experience, or any of this others ones for that matter! Also pay attention to the information -there is a nice surprise for those who do well on the quiz! Enjoy!

Roopak has a lovely manner and makes everyone feel welcome within the group. The session was very informative and interesting. The use of slides, videos and songs made it easy to follow and engaging. With the small group it was possible to be highly interactive and ask questions. It was a lovely opportunity to learn more and experience Diwali even from many miles away.
