- He is also known as A. B.
- In 2013, he was critically ill as he was suffering from Tuberculosis. Talking about his illness in an interview, he said,
Without exaggeration, I could say the illness almost ate me alive. The physical pain and the meds took a great toll on my mental health as well. My immune system was severely compromised, I had lumps in my neck, and I was coughing blood. The medications I was prescribed were very strong and my body did not want to accept it. It took every ounce of strength just to keep going. It took two years before I was able to say I was healthy, but it took another five before I could say I was healed.”
- In 2018, he was suffering from depression and anxiety, and to cope up with depression, he started writing poems and stories.
- In an interview in 2019, Ashish shared that he was an introvert in childhood. He said,
Growing up, I was an anxious person, struggling with anxiety in bits and pieces. I had a lot of negativity around me with people saying that you cannot do this, you cannot do that. I haven’t had many friends. I am an introvert myself. When I look back now, I realise that it was okay to feel what I was feeling.”
