Ash Pradhan


Ash Pradhan was born in Mumbai, India, under the given birth name Ashok. He has lived in the US for over forty years, where his American buddies fondly started calling him Ash, and is settled in Reston, Virginia.
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 is currently capturing his thoughts and feelings in a series of poetry books, of which Cosmic Reflections, A soulful journey through life, was the first one; and Rhythms of Hearts, A charming sojourn with love and lovers, was the second.

The titles of his upcoming poetry books are: Nuggets & Pearls, Memorable snippets; Resonant Relations, About human relations; and Random Walks, About some of my life experiences.
