Prasanna’s interest in all things technology runs deep, as evidenced by his favorite book, “Speed and Scale,” by John Doerr. He finds that the book “articulates a framework of how technology ambition, delivery targets and a culture of innovation are crucial to developing game-changing breakthroughs with speed and at scale.” Prasanna also has a lifelong love of music that was passed down from his parents. He learned to play the tabla, which is a two-piece Indian drum, as a child, and he’s a self-proclaimed enthusiast of Hindustani classical music.
