Maybe http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX WikiBooks can be a nice source to look up.

But, from my own experience, the best way to learn *anything* is: 1) read the basics. ONLY the basics. 2) put yourself an aim in mind and 3) google, search at forums... for anything you need.

Personally, it's the fastest way to learn and the way you remember more.

Best way to learn is by doing. Are you going to use LaTeX for writing a scientific paper or maybe your thesis? You have made the right choice!

Start by installing MiKTeX:
http://miktex.org/
If you using Windows or use your distro's package manager to install it (apt-get if on Ubuntu, yum if on Fedora,etc). Then download some examples or existing papers and learn by reading the source files. Go here for for a lot of resources: http://www.tug.org/

If you google "latex tutorial" you will find an abundance of resources. Good luck!

I'm using it, but it is very to get things customized. I've to create my own class or i've to redefine command on existing class.
Is there any video tutorial for latex. That would be very nice.

I googled "latex video tutorial"and got a bunch of results. LaTeX is been around for a long time and since it is F/OSS and used extensively in academia there is an abundance of resources on the net. Check these out for a start:
