Tech. in Chemical Engineering in 1974. Atul currently resides in Houston, Texas. Atul first got really interested in Mahatma Gandhi about 15 years ago when he was searching for an answer to as to why India got left behind and western civilization had made so much progress. Initially, he remained with the answer that science and technology is a field primarily developed by western civilization where as India remained focused on spirituality. Then all of a sudden a light came on. Science and technology is nothing else but relentless pursuit of physical truth which led him to learn more about Apostle of Peace and unwavering practitioner of Truth, Mahatma Gandhi. He learned the most basic lesson of life on how to live the life from Mahatma Gandhi. Practice truth as conceived by one's self, your truth, while adhering to non-violence in mind, word and deed. He has now dedicated himself to taking this message to to the next generation.
