By DC I mean,not his kind of design,but capable of doing complete modification,the only thng i like about DC is his interior designs.

SRK, just chase your dream.... our country needs some good auto-designers. Make someone like Pininfarina your role model and not DC.... like someone said one DC is enough for this country.

Thanks for your suggestion,Actually I have not made DC my role model,I only like his interiors.
I really like Autopsyche's and RIO's work,I just love them.Actually they are my role models,though I have never interacted with them.
I want to learn designing vehicles from scratch,but for that I need to get selected at a design school 1st.
If not ill still try to achieve my dream,by opening a customisation shop,which will have some guys more talented than me. I want to learn Fabrication,so I can have the design actually as I want.
Lets see what happens! I know GOD is with me and May be someday I'll be designing cars for the biggest brands in the world!

Thankyou very much!
Guys I know i will not be able to afford a house or my dream cars (a fully tuned ride,ferraris,mercs,bmws,etc) easily,by doing this work.
But I dont mind,I just want to keep my parents happy and be able to give them the best that I can.Making money will just be to give luxury to my parents, getting myself my dream cars and I'll try to improve others life too by charity.
I want to this because I love cars,I could have done medical or engg.,but I would not be able to give my best in those fields.
I just need your wishes and support!

Is it important to get a certificate from an institute or can I learn from experience?
A certificate from an institute just ensures that the student has experienced every possible problem and is ready to tackle them.
So learning from experience will be the same,only it will be like, to get the right thing at right time.Technical knowledge can be gained by studying at home,internet (TEAMBHP) and doing practicals at a local garage.
So what do you guys have to say:-
1) Try and get admission in a design school.
OR
2) Learn for experience from professional.
