I am Chirag Patel. I was born in Vadodara, and lived at many places in western India and in USA at different times. My parents – Bansibhai and Rohiniben, nurtured me with all love and care and material things that they possible could give. I have lovely siblings – Payal and Kunal. My native place is a village – Heranj near Nadiad.

I like writing in various literary forms – poems, travel experiences, science and religion analogies, short stories, sattires etc. I like reading a lot. I am a supporter of Gujarati and Sanskrut languages. Couple of noticeable books that have influenced me: Bhagvad Gita, Bhagavatam, The Dancing WuLi Masters, A Brief History of Time, The Tao of Physics, RajaYoga, Yoga Vaashistha, Atmakatha – Gandhiji, ChandiPaath, Ishoupanishad. The list goes on and on. I very much like spiritual music and Indian classical music. I am also a fan of A R Rehman.
I practice Raja Yoga every day. Atma-Dhyana is also a part of my daily worship to MAA.
