    1. fRoD

      Probably because of high graphics use in the new format of videos, size may have increased. Also its the HD version that has more size.SD versions have lesser size.

    Hi Mrunal, Thank you so much all this effort (And keeping us Indians addicted to free stuff !! :P). I have a humble request. Can you please slightly reorganize the website and make categories for Videos you upload. (like what you have done world history, geography etc). I am not a regular follower and find abbreviations like BES, HFS very confusing (I do get what they mean) whenever I visit site to download material once in a month. I am not sure how much effort it takes to organize a website but if it is a 10-15 minute job, I will be very thankful if you can do it.
