Ashok is prolific, no doubt, and his choice of subjects very varied. He has a book of haikus already published and another is on its way. His new interest is blank verse and he threatens a book all "blank". Born in Lahore, Punjab in 1937, the family moved to New Delhi, India, after Partition in 1947, schooled at Modern School, New Delhi, and graduating in Economics from St. Stephen's College, Delhi, he worked with Indian Industry until 1977 and then started his own international trading company, Monarch International, of which he is president. His love for art, literature and the finer side of life finds expression in his earlier books: The Sands of Time, As Time Goes By, Fruit Salad, Chequerboard, To Have Loved, The Tyranny of Truth, The Mango Grove at Kashipur, The Rabbit's Tale, The Misadventures of a Flying Horse, A Pigeon and I, Till the End of Time, Think Poetry, Think Haikus, The Shepherd Said, Three Cheers for Poetry and The Beauty of Silence. His book Fruit Salad has been translated into both Chinese and Persian. He writes in Urdu too and now has four books to his credit.He has a book of short stories, 11 Short Stories, published in the UK. He has also written books for children in English and Hindi.
