This forum is full of craft masters who are willing to help you and answer your questions. But what you are asking about is too basic.


You are from India, you got a very strong film industry. attend as much shootings as you can. observe and learn.

It would require an entire book to answer your question, and even then, only practice And observation  will work.

I Suggest you volunteer to help on the lighting crew of some small projects to get started.
