  17. Rohit kumar says:

    This is very good thing but the biggest challenge for many is lack of teaching or guidance .
    One who have never been taught in this field is/are unable to participate in this, whereas he/she has much interest in it and could boost up the sector with their best intellectual abilities if trained properly.

    It’s my request to the developed organisations or one who wish to help , please make some area *(platform or so ) to help those who wish to learn in this field🙏🙏🙏
