Ash Pradhan

Ash Pradhan was born in Mumbai, India, under the given birth name "Ashok". He has lived in the US for over fifty years, and is settled in Reston, Virginia. His American buddies fondly started calling him "Ash".

All of Ash's academic degrees and industry practice have been in the field of Electrical Engineering. He has a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, an M.Tech. from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, and a B.E. from the University of Pune.

After a long, successful career in engineering, Ash felt a strong natural attraction for the worlds of spirituality and poetry, being deeply impressed and inspired by the works of Paramahansa Yogananda, Deepak Chopra, Rudyard Kipling, and others.

He has been capturing his thoughts and feelings in a series of poetry books, of which "Cosmic Reflections, A soulful journey through life", was the first one; "Rhythms of Hearts, A charming sojourn with love and lovers", was the second; and "Nuggets & Pearls, Memorable snippets" was the third.

The titles of his upcoming poetry books are: "Harmony, Harmonious human relations"; and "Random Walks, Enlightening chance experiences".
