Prabhakar joined Grey about 20 years ago when it was still known as Trikaya Grey. Since then, the agency became his second home and he was witness to its transition from Trikaya Grey to Grey Group.

A jovial, helpful and wonderful colleague, a doting father and a loving husband, Prabhakar will be missed by his innumerable friends and colleagues. He is survived by his wife Beena and his son Vineet.

Prabhakar's cremation will be held on August 27, between 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm.
