It seems like Carrot is the one making the queries to Solr? In that case,
this question may be better suited for carrot users/developers.

That is easy with Solr, make a query like field-name:"Bhaskar". Make sure
that field name is not tokenized i.e. string type in schema.xml

Leading wildcards are not supported. However there are alternate ways of
doing it.

Create two fields, keep one as a normal string type and use a
KeywordTokenizer and ReverseFilter on the other. Make one field a copyField
of the other. Perform a prefix search on both fields.
