    दरअसल हम भारतीयों को मुफ्त की चीजें पाना बहुत पसंद होता है। जैसा कि आप मेरे जैसे और अन्य लोगों को मुफ्त में पढ़ा रहे हैं। कहीं न कहीं यह बहुत महत्वपूर्ण लगता है क्योंकि कभी-कभी हमारे पास निवेश करने के लिए पैसे नहीं होते हैं या कोई नया कौशल सीखने के लिए खर्च नहीं कर सकते हैं। आप बहुत अच्छा काम कर रहे हैं यह कहने की बात नहीं है आप इसे बहुत अच्छे से जानते हैं फिर भी मैं आपका आभार व्यक्त करना चाहता हूँ धन्यवाद।

    मुझे कार्टून फिल्मे बनाना अच्छा लगता है पर अभी तक मै कुछ भी नहीं जनता हूँ कि एनिमेटेड फिल्म कैसे बनाई जाती है। भगवान की कृपा से आपके माध्यम से सीखने को मिलेगा तो मेरा ये सपना भी साकार हो जायेगा। मुझे बड़ी बेसब्री से उस दिन का इंतज़ार है जिस मैं इसे सीखना शुरू करूँगा।

    Anonymous is taking this course right now.

    The Maya software which the instructor used it's different from the current version the students who enrolled are advised to download and so there's so much trouble in doing the same what he teaches and no sort of assistance provided when asked about the same in discussion about the problem faced regarding the interface which ultimately made me feel annoyed and decided not to go with the course after 2 weeks of learning

    But I should appreciate the instructor, he's good at teaching.
