Thanks a lot Mandar Sir for such a fantastic training. You have made difficult learning so much easy through careful instructions / steps. This training is helpful for beginners like me and it will be helpful for practitioners as well. If your video trainings are so useful, I am eager to attend your workshops as well. I feel your excellent teaching of "Ganesha Idol making" has done "Shree Ganesha" of my creative learning! Thanks a ton once again!!
