hello i appreciate this type of approach that other can
easily facilitate their self......
i m a bachelor student and my project is on flood affected
damaged road and their design so if i get some data related
to this i shall be very thankful to you all.......
else all the best.

This is a fantastic approach to educate not only the
students but also beginners to understand the subject
reality. Also, the viewer can correct or suggest
modification to the speaker/lecturer to revisit some grey
areas wherein it may be a confusing statement or approach.
Anyway, it is great, pl introduce more and more such
facilities and allow others to learn educate/update their
curriculum.
Thanks all the best
