I am Chirag Patel. I was born in Vadodara, and lived at many places in India and in USA at different times. My parents – Bansibhai – a forest officer and Rohiniben, nurtured me with all love and care and material things that they possibly could give. I have lovely siblings – Payal and Kunal. My native place is a village named Heranj in western state of India. I spent my formative years living in a place surrounded by forest, hills and river.
I married very lovely lady named Parul. She supported me well in all different situations with care. She gifted me with a loving son named Vrund and our heart our daughter Svara!
I am fortunate to have wonderful and supportive relatives/friends – Digant, Vikasbhai, Hinabhabhi, Prafulbhai, Madhuben to name a few.
I did Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics from M S University, Vadodara. I attended Penn State for Master of Software Engineering, but felt disheartened continuing it.
I work as Lead Engineering at Omnitracs in Dallas. I worked on various cutting edge technologies such as Infiniband, High Performance Computing or HPC (SuperComputer), 10G Ethernet, Fibre Channel, High speed measurement, Voice processing, DSP. I am fortunate to learn from my very able supervisors in all the companies I worked for – Anjaleem, McData, Brocade, QLogic, Tektronix, Omnitracs.
I like writing in various literary forms – poems, travel logs, quantum physics, philosophy, short stories, satire etc. I like reading a lot. I mostly write in Gujarati my mother tongue and in English.
Couple of noticeable books that have influenced me: Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavatam, The Dancing WuLi Masters, A Brief History of Time, The Tao of Physics, RajaYoga, Yoga Vaashistha, Atmakatha – Gandhiji, ChandiPaath, upanishads. The list goes on and on. I very much like spiritual music and Indian classical music.
I practice Raja Yoga every day. Atma-Dhyana (meditation) is also a part of my daily worship to MAA – mother goddes.
