"Rhythms of Hearts," A charming sojourn with love and lovers, published in February 2011.

Tap the inner corners of your heart and capture its most kept desires as Ash Pradhan poetically paints a picture of the Rhythms of Hearts. In this composition of over a hundred and fifty skillfully written poems, he immerses readers into the phases of love. Through different chapters, he pensively and candidly talks about what love is, how to love and be loved, and what it is like to have a wholesome relationship. He likewise touches on the excitement of chance encounters, courtships, and intimacies.

While some poems are sensuous, and others are marked by a touch of the poet’s characteristic subtle humor, each piece in this collection beautifully presents the many forms of love: the love for others, love for nature, and the divine love of the and for the Creator. Rhythms of Hearts, from page to page, is bound to bring you inspiration, motivation, and comfort amid a world that needs love.

"The passion to write shows explicity in the way Mr Ash Pradhan presented his writing works on his website. His desire to value the various facets of life experiences with his contribution towards mankind is commendable. His well-constructed theme for his books and their distribution is done in a well planned manner theoretically thus bringing out practicality in his poems. Having had the pleasure of reading one of
his written works namely Cosmic Reflections, I am inclined to believe his second book will be notably successful as with all his future writings and wish him all the very best."
