  1. I am a senior Prasidh, his former neighbour. I was in class 10 while his sister Prakruthi was born. His family consisting of his parents and his grandmother had moved in as tenants to the house ‘Ashirvad’ behind mine in Ashok Nagar, Banashankari 1st stage Bangalore 50 while he was an infant. His first birthday was also celebrated in the same house.
    That was in late 90s when internet was not popular. Until I came to know about his first birthday, I thought I was the only Prasidh in Bangalore. They relocated from that house ‘Ashirvad’ sometime in 1999 I guess.

    It was a real surprise when I saw his name and face in an IPL tournament. I had my doubts whether it was really that infant Prasidh I had known in late 1990s. I saw his biography on another site which showed that he did his schooling at Carmel School. This school is in Banashankari suburb too. It gave me a pointer that he could be the same Prasidh. The details on this webpage show the fine details such as the name of his sister thereby confirming that he is the same baby Prasidh that I had known in late 1990s.

    I am delighted to see him represent India and show his magic with the ball. He is al married now. Time just flies!

    I chose the path of science whereas he chose the path of sports.

    I wish him.all success in his life and career and will continue to be his fan.

    All the best kid ! (Being around 15 years older than you dear Prasidh, I take this liberty to call you kid ).
