For all aspirants…… the training classes are based purely upon the interest of the candidate & the time one can invest (yes, it’s not sparing time, it’s investing) on to learn it with all one’s senses.
The reason behind my emphasis on interest & invest words is, the output is definitely going to be either in the form of pecuniary benefits or in terms of psychological soothing, mental peace, as it’s one of the best therapeutic treatments which every artist believes in and so do I. And for that matter any kind of art is equally the best in its own way.
