I have also worked with Mr. Aamir Khan in his blockbuster TAARE ZAMEEN PAR. Working with Aamir Sir was a great learning experience for me. I got to learn many new things from all the instances during the shoot. I helped in filming the climax – Art Mela Scene – and worked closely with Aamir Sir and the directors. Aamir Khan also mentioned that I was a great help in filming on his blog here. (Navigate to Aamir’s responses ->Reply no.4)

  1. Hey Atul..was just reading about you…you do wear many hats..indeed fascinating to see the elite list of schools and colleges. I find a lot of things in common except probably the gender, age, drawing and painting:) So what is in common then??
    I was also a university cricket player(once upon a time..) an avid quizzer and hosted a debating club in school. How was Amity Noida? My elder son is in PES doing his engg in ECE stream, maybe he can connect with you through mail/linked in…if you do not mind..

    • Thanks Sunitaji. Glad to hear you played cricket too (not many I know who played cricket) and enjoy quizzing. Amity was good, great atmosphere, good exposure – the studies, fests everything. I have friends who studied/are studying at PES. Sure would be glad to connect with him on LinkedIn, I don’t mind at all. Thanks again for stopping by and constantly motivating me to come up with quality posts !

  2. Hey Atul, I noticed and I am happy that you are following my blog. I have followed you back too, for your sheer interest in so many things & it amazes me. Great going and I wish you loads of good luck !

    • It feels great to meet a person with similar interests. Loved the way you described your trips. Thanks again !! Will be a frequent reader on your blog 🙂 (y)

  3. Greetings Kamal,

    Well I too am a newbie in Electronics…Being a Computer Engineering student, I have very little connection with electronics. I got my arduino UNO from tenettech – bangalore based company that sells electronic stuff. Other places are simplelabs.in, rhyzodlab etc. (You can find a list on Arduino’s official website.)

    I dont have any idea of physical shops selling arduino in Delhi, but for electronic components, Lajpat Rai Market, Chandni Chowk is perfect. From resistors, diodes, breadboards, sensors you will find everything.

    For more info mail me at atul@atulmaharaj.com

    Hi Atul,
    I was searching online for buying arduino kit in delhi and stumbled upon your blog. Would like to know where did you buy your kit from? I am a newbie (I did Electronics Hons. way back in 2006), and need some advice on how to start with arduino (which kit to start with and how).

  5. Visited your site for the first time today, proud of you!! Your comments surely show that you have your heart in the right place. However, for me, the only Atul that comes to my memory is of my studious, respectful student with an ever-ready smile on his face!! Keep it up, dear. Will continue to read your blogs. Interesting!!

    • Thank you so much ma’am for those kind words. Being praised by a teacher is THE BEST thing that can happen to a student.I have always had – and will always have – high regards and respect for my teachers. New Era has been the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. I am deeply indebted to each and everyone there.

      I am grateful for your never ending support. I hope your well wishes are always with me so that I am always ready to face new challenges in my life.

      Also do try out some recipes on my website and let me know your feedback. This site has come up due to my interest in cooking.
