तीन दिवसांच्या कार्यशाळेला जाताना काही अपेक्षा घेऊन गेलो होतो. त्या तर पूर्ण झाल्याच परंतू परत येताना खूप समृृध्द झालो. विषय तसा अवघडच परंतू बापू सरांनी इतका सोपा केला की रूची निर्माण झाली.दिलेल्या गृृृहपाठांमुळे एकाच विषयाकडे वेगवेगळ्या कोनातून पाहण्याची दृृष्टी विकसित झाली.इतके दिवसा कथा सांगत होतो किंवा लिहीत होतो,ह्या कार्यशाळेनंतर ती कथा कशी प्रभावीरित्या सादर करावी ह्याचे तंत्र ध्यानात आले.ही तर सुरूवात आहे .बापूसरांनी दिशादर्शकाचे काम केले आहे.आता पुढे कसे जायचे हे प्रत्येकावर आहे.ह्या कार्यशाळेत भाग घेणार्‍यांची संख्या मर्यादित असल्याने परस्पर संवाद छान झाला.विचिरांची देवाणघेवाण उत्तम झाली.बापूसरांच्या शिकवण्यात तंत्राबरोबर तत्वज्ञानाची जोड असल्याने विषयाला खोली प्राप्त झाली.तीन दिवस विषयाला खिळवून ठेवण्याचे सरांचे कसब अचंभित करणारे आहे.ह्यापुढील अशा प्रकारच्या कार्यशाळेला उपस्थित रहावयाला नक्की आवडेल.ह्या ग्रूपबरोबर किंवा इतर ग्रूपबरोबर.पुन्हा एकदा धन्यवाद समृृध्द केल्याबद्दल

​SenseIndia Foundation ने आयोजित केलेल्या script writing (Film &TV) हा तीन दिवसांचा certificate course मी केला. एक वेगळाच आनंददायी अनुभव होता. .श्री. बापू सर्वगोड सरांनी script लिहीताना कोणत्या गोष्टी लक्षात घेतल्या पाहिजेत ते बारकावे आणि तंत्र अगदी सहजपणे सोप्या भाषेत शिकवले . व्याख्याना बरोबर वर्गपाठ गृहपाठ करून घेतल्यामुळे माझा आत्मविश्वास दुणावला. एकाच वेळी मराठी, हिंदी आणि इंग्रजी भाषेत शिकवले हे कौतुकास्पद आहे. बापू सर्वगोड यांच्या सारख्या अनुभवी शिक्षकाबरोबर तीन दिवस नवीन तंत्र शिकण्यात कसे गेले ते कळलेच नाही. 
  श्रीमती. नयना अजित जोशी.

It was a great experience, being a part of sense India. Learned a lot, met a lot of like minded people and work is going on professionally after learning the skill of writing
Haneesh Ashok , Hyderabad

At the beginning , Course goes into details of script writing philosophy and then its technique . It emphasis more on thinking aspect of screen writing which is essential for writing effective screen play . Bapu sir takes students slowly but interestingly to the journey of a writer from thinker to script writer . Very good course for aspiring writers.
