About Atikulla

"When I was 21, I had Major slipped disc. The one that keeps you in bed for six long months.

While I was on bed, thinking that I'll never ride my motorcycle again, I thought about selling my bike. (Not to mention the pressure from my family.) But despite the odds, low chances of long bike rides in future, mental and physical fatigue, I told myself that I'll not only ride but I'll also do long trips on my motorcycle. And I did, I rode 380km in 11 hours. It wasn't easy, I'll be lying if I say my back didn't ache. But yea.. I’m that person. Once I say I’ll do something, it will happen.

Now, I put that perseverance in building great web products. I don’t have to fight the pain to stand on my feet…but I do have to fight competition and make my own ground to stand on.

I’m well-versed in planning and development, relationship management, operations, negotiations and logistics coordination and scheduling. I devote my free time in learning user behaviour with respect to a given user interface. As I feel user experience is the need of the hour.

If you’re interested in grabbing coffee or discuss an idea (or to hear how I almost fell off the cliff of Malshej ghat), please send an email my way."
