Dear  bhargav ,

 Since the center of mass of a solid hemisphere is 3/8 R above the circular base; so reducing it to a one particle system, and the moment of inertia of that one particle system is M(3/8 R)^2=M(9/64)R^2.

 Now moment of inertia of the particle about an axis parallel to the original one but at a distance of 3/4 R can be obtained using the parallel axis theorem

 New M.I. = MR^2(45/64)

 So Radius of gyration= R(45/64)^1/2
