SoHamsa Free Courses

We needed a website to organise the learning, or at least to have all those tiny bits of lessons and workshops at one place – that was the motive behind the birth of www.SoHamsa.IN which is different from www.SoHamsa.COM as the latter is for paid professional courses, announcements etc.

Quality of the courses are the same as those of paid professional courses.
