Growing up in the beautiful state of Kerala, Somanath was influenced by his mom, who was a Hindi teacher. She taught him to love learning. When he was in college, his curiosity led him to do something different – he asked one of his teachers to teach him about rockets, even though it wasn’t part of the usual subjects. He was fascinated by rockets and wanted to learn more about them.

His leadership skills came to the forefront as he skillfully executed this role. Furthermore, his expertise extended beyond PSLV, as he lent his assistance to other rockets, including GSLV (Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle), contributing significantly to their successful operations.
