Ashok Niyogi was born in Calcutta in 1955. He was schooled all over India in Irish Christian Brothers’ Schools and graduated with Honors in Economics from Presidency College. Ashok spent 30 years in the world of International Commerce,15 in East Europe and Russia and the CIS. His work has taken him all over the world and he now divides his time between California where his two daughters live, Russia and India. He is currently unemployed because writing poetry is not considered gainful employment, but does have a timber plantation in Goa, India. Ashok has two books of poetry in India—Crossroads and Reflections in the Dark (both from A-4 Publications) and one book of poems from the USA—Tentatively (iUniverse). He has been published extensively on line and in print in the USA, the UK, New Zealand, Australia and Canada in magazines and anthologies.
