Star of Cypress
Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World who spent the last days of his life in Southern California, would have been happy with the manner in which Dr. Prakash Narain has lived his life.
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.
—Aldous Huxley, English writer, novelist, philosopher
Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World who spent the last days of his life in Southern California, would have been happy with the manner in which Dr. Prakash Narain has lived his life. Dr. Narain has been able to overcome obstacles at various stages of his life’s journey by looking inwardly before performing with purpose outwardly. His meditative practice has helped him understand that the mysterious hand of the Universe has guided him through all the major events of his life.
For a first-generation immigrant that came to the USA in 1980, Prakash Narain has made admirable accomplishments. In December 2006, he became the first Indian-American physician to be elected to a City Council in the United States. He served as a Council Member for the City of Cypress, in Orange County, California for two terms, until 2014. He also became the first Indian-American to serve two terms as Mayor in Southern California, with each term lasting one year. While performing his political responsibilities, he continued as a full-time physician and Medical Director of the Leisure World Health Care Center in the city of Seal Beach, in Orange County.
