I am studying Electronics and Telecom Engineering and beginner in Robotics.I want to make serious start from scratch with interest but confused from where to start.So can anyone give some suggestions for
1.As a beginner in robotics ,are there some simple and basic robots or circuit designs which I can make by myself in the home(so that I can gain practical knowledge of robots)?
2.or should I first read books (can anyone suggest some good reference book names,articles ,links,free on-line video lecture series)?

You could check out the Arduino platform. It's basically a computer that can read sensors and drive actuators. The limit is your imagination and how much you want to spend.

Some makers have built simple robot wheeled vehicles using the arduino to control speed and direction with some added sensors to prevent wall collisions or detect a light source or sound source...

Wikipedia has a summary of what arduino is about that may be a good starting point too
