Karn was also thankful to Masquerades and IIT BHU to have invited him to conduct the session which he said he thoroughly enjoyed as students got to ask him various things about acting and he was happy that he could clear all their doubts and also about the fact that Karn could bring about a positive impact in the lives of these college students. Though Karn thinks their is a lot to learn but at the same time He firmly believes in the saying, " To teach is to learn twice " so if their is something I have learnt and I can teach that to people willing to learn then it is a blessing.
