During an interactive event in Mysuru last year in 2022, he added that not reading will lead to illiteracy and he told that he dreams of being a scientist in the future and also wish to contribute to society and the country.

Reading also plays a vital role as it is a relaxation exercise for the young genius. Apart from reading, he also has a wide interest in writing. He has authored two books so far. Prasanna’s first title ‘Learn Vitamins with Harry Potter’ is a children’s educational book about the significance of vitamins whereas his second book ‘Elements Of Earth’ draws significance about the five basic elements on Earth.
