I am hoping that this is going to help people who want to learn the kutch work ( sindhi taka) by themselves.
Coming straight way to the point,
Following are the very important things to keep in mind.Remember these and you are already half way left in learning.

SIX IMPORTANT STEPS.OR THE BASICS.
  1. there are 2 parts. one is outline or skeleton second is the FILLING
  2. OUTLINE always starts from the LEFTand goes toRIGHT .RUNS CLOKCWISE
  3. FILLING always starts from left on the outline running ANTICLICKWISE.
  4. keep counting ' UP... DOWN.. in mind at every intersection of the thread.
  5. in outline count is up, down ,up(needle passes U,D,U)
  6. in filling the count is down, up, down.( needle passes D,U,D)

try to rememberlast 4 points.. now pick the needle n thread .. we are good to go.
