I can understand your concern, but the fact is I don't know many terminologies of IR in Hindi, hence I would not be able to come up with precise content. I would request you to please download the pdf from ISSUU and then go through the slides and watch video again. This would take some time but trust me you will have much better retention than any other person who is just watching the video. Still I will try my best to say things as slowly as possible so that it helps you. Thanks for the interest and kind words, hope you would benefit from the lessons. All the best for your preparation.
thnku very much..
