Prasanna:
I am doing my Post-Graduation in Computer Science from Patkar college (Mumbai). I was always interested in anything logic-related but didn't really know where I can develop that interest until I was introduced to the Logic Masters India website by Rohan in 2010. Since then, I've been steadily improving as a solver, my best performance was achieving Winning the Indian Puzzle Championships in 2013. I've represented India at the World Championships twice, once for Sudoku and once for Puzzles. I am a member of Mensa. I am an author at the World Puzzle Championships this year - 2013, representating Asia. I started creating puzzles in December of 2011, and I've since authored various International, National and local Puzzle Championships and contests, including helping in organizing monthly Beginners' Contests for new solvers interested in solving Sudoku and its variants at the Logic Masters India site. I've also been employed by a Pune daily called Life-365 where I have a daily puzzle section titled "Simple Logic". I have a blog where I post puzzles and sudokus that I create frequently - http://prasannaseshadri.wordpress.com/
