"Venkatesh Ketakar or V.B. Ketakar (? - Aug 1930) was an astronomer who lived in India. Almost forgotten now even in his native country, his claim to fame is that he correctly predicted some parameters of the orbit of Pluto - nearly 20 years before it was actually discovered by Clyde Tombaugh. Though Tombaugh was unaware of Ketakar's work, the latter's calculations for Pluto turned out to be much more correct than those of Percival Lowell and William Henry Pickering, who are still remembered for their significant contributions to astronomy. By the time Pluto was discovered in February 1930, Ketakar had suffered a severe paralytic stroke and died soon after. Around the turn of the 20th century, astronomers thought that the orbit of Neptune was being disturbed by the gravitational pull of a yet-undiscovered planet. Neptune itself had been discovered because it disturbed the orbit of Uranus. Therefore many astronomers including Lowell and Pickering started analyzing Neptune's orbit in the hopes of discovering another planet. So did Venkatesh Ketakar. Ketakar published his calculations in the May 1911 issue of Bulletin of the Astronomical Society of France."--Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venkatesh_Ketakar
