Bewildering Stories biography
A magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa graduate of New York University, Ashok has published his poetry and prose in numerous outlets, including South Asian Review, Red River Review, Burning Word Magazine, Mantram, Cogitemus Philosophy Journal, Catamaran Literary Journal: South Asian American Writing, and 3:AM Magazine. His artwork has been submitted to many venues, such as Exit Art, a leading New York cultural center.
In 2000, at the age of 25, Ashok suffered a near-fatal brain hemorrhage, which left him with permanent half-blindness in both eyes, epilepsy, and a carved skull. His writings and artwork reflect the complexities of his survival and post-brain surgery existence.
His memoir, Brain Karma, will be published by Algonquin Books in 2011.
