Welcome to my web site! I am an engineer by training. My professional career has focused on turbo machinery (especially jet engines) and smart structures. I also have deep interests in politics and religion. In 1979 I helped found the Connecticut Valley Hindu Temple Society, in Middletown, Connecticut. I was elected to two terms on the Glastonbury, Connecticut town council. Please explore the links on the left to read my many papers and articles on these subjects.
In July 2008 I was appointed to serve on the board of directors of Connecticut Innovations, a quasi-public authority, by Governor M. Jodi Rell. Also I served as Honorary Chair for that year’s One Book program of Hartford Public Library.
History was made on May 29, 2007 when I was invited by my good friend Senator Lebeau to offer a Hindu prayer before beginning the deliberations of the Senate that day. You may watch the prayer by clicking here http://youtu.be/b8L1kJT9xZU
The highlight of 2011 was the publication of my book HINDUISM for Dummies by Wiley Publishers. Please visit my Author Page on Amazon at amazon.com/author/a.v.srinivasan
