Hello all, I was born in 1974 to Mr Parivesh Kumar Jha and Mrs. Pushpa Jha of Bokaro Steel City (wikipedia link). That was the year, when some smart computer researchers invented something called the Internet Protocol suite or TCP/IP for short. 3 decades later, this internet and mobile is my life! I grew up in the emergency era in Bokaro Steel City, Bihar and studied Computer Science in IIT Kanpur. [About picture: This is the picture I used in class 12 for CBSE anad engineering exams!] I moved to the land of opportunity USA for work in 1997. I am back in India 6 years later. I love yoga, Hindi music, parks, museums etc. I have spent my time working in Pune, Mumbai and Bay Area. I like the way internet and mobile have changed our lives. I wish to become a part of this history of mankind.

    Hi bhaiya, I am Siddhartha Pandey from Bokaro. My uncle Dr D K Pandey would praise you for your love of Physics.
    Your well deserved fame made you a household name not only in Bokaro but the country too.
    Kindly accept my Facebook request.
    Regards.

  2. Hey Dude..I was in class 6 when I saw your name in Bokaro Darpan ( a local Magzine )! You inspired many of us..You made us proud..! God bless you..

  3. Siddharth Singh

    Prasun Kumar, who can know you better then me. 1993 you topped IIT, the year when I could not get a rank in JEE. That year we had a tough Physics paper. Nice to see you after such a long time.Looking at your simplicity,indeed no one can deserve your position. God Bless you and your family.

  4. Hi Prasoon

    I was in class 9th at St Michael’s Patna in 1993 when you had topped JEE. I vividly remember, someone frm Bokaro/Bihar topping JEE had enthused a whole lot of students from my school/ other places in Bihar . I remember many of my classmates going for DPS Bokaro post their 10th. Also, if I am not wrong another of your batch mate had got rank 4 in that year. I think it was only in 2008 that someone from Bihar/Jh topped JEE again. Nostalgic!!!

  5. Finally i found you..:)… I was in class 2 when i heard your name from my dad talking proudly of a boy who has brought laurels to Bokaro by getting rank 1 in IIT Jee. Wishing you great success in life.

    Regards,
    Prashant

  6. Hi,

    Like many of your fans, I too had heard of you first from my Dad, my cousin (who is originally from Bokaro) and then through those pictures at the back of Brilliant Tutorials’ notes.
    So it is a very pleasant surprise to find you on the web after probably half my life.
    I was at IITB 1998-2003 and then came to the US.

    Regards,

    • @Anuranjan, Thanks for reaching out and adulation. I enjoyed going through your research papers on batti (EE). I could not fathom, if you have completed your PhD. Have you? Good luck with your endeavor in your life.

      • Thanks for your reply and the wishes. Yeah I got the PhD degree in 2009. I was in New York for all that time and then moved to Austin, TX and recently I have settled down in the Bay Area, California. I am an Analog/RF circuit designer (radios, TV tuners, high-speed serial links for FPGAs… those kind of stuff). I heard ‘batti’ after ages. 🙂

        Like often happens, people tend to find their links to celebrities…. so here is another “convoluted” one for me: my Dad and your Dadi are apparently cousins (phuferi behen). So all the more reasons for my Dad to keep telling me to study all those years. 🙂

        Regards,
        Anuranjan
