My first impression is that it is VERY cluttered.
The colour scheme is nice and the feel it somewhat professional though. But your code is not valid (http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fkvcindia.com%2F) at all.
Let me guess... it was written in Frontpage. :)

That didn't take much guessing:

Anyway, I like it overall, however as Mark said it's very cluttered. Dude, use CSS and valid code.....more and more web devs are nowadays, don't get left behind...:)

especially since you are trying to promote web development.

It seems to cluttered. Maybe making the divisions of the page contrast more from one another would help this. The flash banner doesn't really seem to fit in, was it a premade?
Also, the links at the bottom (about 50) is there not a better way to organize them rather than just listing them all?

I agree that it's cluttered. Here's why:
1) There is a lot of text, and no real clear distinctions between what goes together.
2) Images seem to be randomly inserted rather than carefully and selectively placed (i.e. what does orange juice have to do with web site promotion, a muscle man with client care, or some pulled weeds with quality?).
3) There are a ton of links at the bottom. Do you expect any user to go through them all and find what they're looking for? It would make more sense to include all of those links in some sort of site map page.

There is an architectural design principle which says... less is more and you have a lot on your site. So much so, I've have a hard time trying to find what I went there for.
You should also know that I got blank pages when I selected 2 links at the bottom the page..... web promotion & search engine placement.

He hasn't replied to anyone's feedback. Looking at the site, it just looks like a search engine trap. That link pile at the bottom looks pretty sleezy, and the flash intro is just a bunch of animated clichés :eek:
Cluttered visually and structurally.

The new website (shang.net) is seriously broken in Firefox. I would reccomend downloading firefox and taking a look.

If you're wanting to be a developer, you should promote your work when you've got it right with atleast one modern browser. At the moment, you aren't a developer, more like a demoter.
Use modern languages. Xhtml is the minimum, use css.

http://kvcindia.com/ looks too empty to me, and I really dislike the dashed border around the page. Perhaps you should try a different kind of menu with more colour in it?
http://shanq.net/ looks OK in IE, colours are plain and simple - which isn't a bad thing. I feel your text is far too close together though (lines). Don't like the fact you've changed my cursor to a crosshair either...

It does seem that there needs to more solidity to your designs before promoting offshore web design as something worth considering. It doesn't seem fair to the client to give them single-browser surface sheen.
The sites, everything I've seen, need more continuity in design and room to breathe (try playing with line-height and letter-spacing in your CSS). In the shanq.net site specify background colors if you want background colors. I wasn't sure.
There seems to be a number of issues, too many to really get into. If you're using Frontpage or any program while learning this stuff I feel that is a big mistake. Learn to handcode then, later, try using a program. That is if you ever choose to stop handcoding. With a good understanding of the code you're writing, using those programs is a waste of time. But this is my opinion. There are some guru HTML artists out there who use WYSIWYGs to their advantange all while producing semantic, valid mark-up and beautiful site (I'm assuming there are actually).
