Founder & Editor-in-Chief of Ashvamegh, Alok Mishra is a perennial student of Literature. He is a poet, author, speaker and academic coach. Alok is also very much inclined towards philosophy. He is 26 and has completed his masters in English Literature back in December 2014 from Nalanda College, Biharsharif. An achiever in his academic life, Alok bagged two awards of repute during his masters – the best student of the batch and also the topper of the batch. His other academic achievements include several awards in writing and speech competitions. Alok has been a sensible (and furious at times when required) debater since high schools. As an author, Alok has written two books – one in Physical form and another an ebook. Alok is also the founder of ILN – India Latest News group.

Talking about Ashvamegh, this flying horse came on the ground of reality on the call of Alok. Just after completing the masters, the urge of doing something for the literary enthusiasts hijacked his thoughts. After the required hows and whys and the discussions with his buddies – Ravi & Rahul, and brother Amit Mishra, Ashvamegh was set to fly high in January 2015. He has sustained and brought Ashvamegh Journal to fame with the cooperation of all the team members. He is pro-actively contributing to the magazine with his editorial leadership, book reviews and interviews with popular poets and authors.

A constant learner of philosophy, Alok often indulges in arguments, debates and conversations with his friends, father, and academicians. Blood and bones a debater, he has participated in many debate programs. Moreover, he also hosts debates in his library every next evening. To him, indulging in conversation is the only way by which people come to learn new things easily. In his words:

“Whenever I finish my discourse, be it a particular fiction or a theory, I love to let people loose and participate in a debate. It lets them (and me of course) explore all other possibilities of the interpretation.”
