Dear Gregory,

Well Thanks for your suggestions. I am no more using TeachingDemos for the same. I am installing rgl for the same, but one thing I want to ask like I need to make round ended bars instead of normal one I have to look into rgl for the same, but is there any option which you think suitable for me in barplots. Whats your suggestions.

Thank you
Jeet
