Hi Gulshan,

There is a lot of videos in Youtube that can help you.

You can start with this

How to Learn Python? (From zero to hero)

For a good book, that is complicated, because it depends on your knowledge level.

Best regards,
Kurro Lopez

thanks, @Kurro Lopez for your reply, yes the link you shared is very helpful. I also find some of the youtube channels and also found a post on the internet, here I found many python tutorials that definitely help me. and i ordered python books from amazon
1: Head First Python
2: A Byte of Python.
These 2 books are really helping me to learn python, thanks all for your reply

The Python documentation is pretty good. I haven't been too impressed by the Python books I've looked at. I didn't get much out of Learning Python, and even less out of Programming Python. Effective Python is okay, but not great. If I have a favorite, it's Fluent Python by Luciano Ramalho, although it probably shouldn't be your first book on the subject. A second edition is underway; you may need a Safari subscription to read it.

I have had great luck with Udemy.  You do have to pay for the course, but watch the sales which are constantly going on.  You can get courses for $12 to $50 US dollars.  Here is the one I bought (currently $2.99).

I bought this one as it talked about having lots of projects to work on.  Some are interesting, but not all.  It did cover the language fairly well.  However, I found the instructors style not quite to my taste.   

Here is another couple of course I have found.  I plan on getting one of these to improve my Python knowledge

I am taking a course on Java with the instructor from the last link (Tim Buchalka) and so far I do like his style.

Good Luck!

Gulshan, the path you take depends on how much money you want to spend and how you prefer to learn.  You have a lot of choices.  I'll add this one to the list of good options the others have posted:

It's an important language to learn for a lot of fields.  Good luck and post back here with what you chose.  That will probably help a lot of others.
