    Monuments of Delhi

    Started in 2009, this project was my payback to society. Work is still going on and I am trying to put every piece of information about Delhi's Heritage on this site.

Vikramjit with students

I realized that we hate history because our textbooks made it so boring. The only solution was to fix the problem for next generation. I teach history to school and college students through poetry, theater, photography and all other forms of art. History is not something that we should hate. Rather we should learn from our past and be the part of evolution. If, and only if, we understand the process of evolution properly, we will be able to design our future better. I have conducted workshops across India for thousands of students and reponse has been tremendous.



Vikramjit at India Habitat Centre

My talks reveal the science hidden in mythology and the ancient lifestyle embodied in superstition. We are interested in logics and not vanilla stories. Therefore my heritage walks and lectures hold their own importance in our lives. Idea is to spread awareness about Heritage and take lessons from past. As we say, 'History repeats itself', it is important to understand history to predict future. Kings and Queens teach us a lot about team management, financial management and running a country like India. When talking to corporate employees, I try to convey the good and bad decisions taken by kings and their impact on society. When talking to general audience, I descibe the evolution of language, food, clothing, architecture, lifestyle and traditions.

 

Digital Marketing & Software Development

I stepped into the world of programming when I was in class 6. Since 2004, I have been developing professional software. So far, I have designed solutions for over 80 reputed brands like Rapid MetroRail Gurgaon, DLF, National Geographic and Nestle. Since 2010, I have been working as a System Analyst and Digital Marketing Consultant. Lately, I have reduced the number of clients I serve so I can spend more time for my heritage love.
