Hello all, I was born in 1974 to Mr Parivesh Kumar Jha and Mrs. Pushpa Jha of Bokaro Steel City. I grew up in Bokaro Steel City, Bihar and studied Computer Science in IIT Kanpur. My surname is Jha, but I don’t use it formally. I used that name till class X. Then, when I enrolled for my matriculation (class X), I removed it with the consent of my father. I was just being idealist. But, that (Prasoon Jha or Prasoon Kumar Jha) is the name with which many close friends still call me.
The wave of success was started by Prasoon Kumar Jha who topped [Indian Institute of Technology Joint Entrance Examination(IIT JEE)] in 1993.
[5 Sep’11] Another Wikipedia page on IIT toppers had my name as Prasoon Kumar Jha, which I corrected today. Wikipedia is a tricky business, where my previous attempt to promote my blog had failed, so let me watch how this genuine effort goes!
DPS School Headmistress Hema Mohan Ma’am also referred me as that, which got published in Hindustan Times. So, I wanted to provide a clarification here. Interestingly, my son’s name is Akshat Kumar Jha. And, my wife is holding onto Ruby Mishra, so I need to do explaining sometimes!
