Aman Rehman said: “Whenever I am having
holidays, I make it a point that I should work on computer
for at least eight hours. And usually I work on computer for
four hours because I have to complete my schoolwork also.
I can work on many software companies like Adobe, Flash, Firework,
Dream Weaver, Maya, 3D Max, After Affects and many others.
Presently I am making projects on black hole, aliens and water
conservation,” said Aman Rehman, Whiz kid.
His father, an illiterate scooter-mechanic
who supports his wife and three children on 60 pounds a month,
had struggled to buy a second-hand computer for their older
son, and Aman was fascinated by it, watching his brother's
every move on the cursor.
By the time he was three-and-a-half,
he had mastered his first animation programme and made a film
with dancing alphabet letters.
“I am having a small workshop, but as
my child was interested towards animation so we never tried
to hamper his interest. Later many people acclaimed his talent,
our Chief Minister B C Khanduri gifted him a laptop,
later our President and Governor of Uttaranchal also awarded
him,” said M Rehman, father of Aman Rehman.
Following friends’ advice,
his father took Aman to Dehra Dun's College of Interactive
However, after a week of intense lobbying
Rehman persuaded the college to watch his child on a computer
which convinced them to offer him a place. Within five months
he had written his own software programme.
Aman knows how to operate 18 softwares.
He has also completed his animation course in span of three
months, which is usually completed by others in 15 months.
