Yeah I met him...he used to go to my old school and I followed in his footsteps to edit the science magazine. Until recently, our prospectus had a pic of him sitting geekily on his suitcase on some grass "revising" with friends.
I've met him. He went to the local public school (which had a strong rivalry with the state school I went to). He was also in the year above me in DoC - which would put him in the same year as you, Sunil.
