My name is Chirag Patel. I was born in Vadodara, and lived in various places such as Godhara, Vansada, Vadodara, Lansdale, Souderton, Harleysville at different times. My parents – Bansibhai and Rohiniben, nurtured me with all love and care and all material things that they possibly could give. I have lovely siblings – Payal and Kunal. My native place is a village named Heranj which is situated near Nadiad.
I married to Parul. She is a very lovely woman. She supported me well in all different situations. She gifted me with our handsome son – Vrund. We are blessed with our daughter Svara.
I am fortunate to have wonderful and supportive relatives/friends/familiars. I take this opportunity to thank Digant Jani who supported me and my family in all tough times.
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 Senior Engineer, Embedded for QLogic. We develop Infiniband switches for High Performance Computing (SuperComputers). I worked for Anjaleem, Inrange (CNT/McData) in past. I am fortunate to learn from my very able supervisors in all the companies I worked for.
I like noting down words that come from my heart (some sort of DHYAANA). I like reading a lot, mostly spiritual and quantum physics. I am 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, Sri Ramakrushna Kathamrut, Vidurniti. 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 appreciate any good music (that I like) irrespective of its origin and age.
I practice RAJA YOGA every day. AATMA-DHYAANA is also a part of my daily worship to MAA.
