Now he is in U.K.G. & his syllabus is so vast but he don't like to study, writting. Please suggest me how can I sit him to study.

He's 4.5... and a boy. I'd actually be surprised if you told me he DOES like to sit and study. Little kids learn best through movement and play. If it's writing that he needs to do.... trace in sand, finger paint (maybe even with pudding, so he can eat his work), chalk.... anything fun you can find to write with might help. It's probably good to not make him sit for more than 10 minutes (at the most) at a time without a break to get up and move around and do something else for a while. Don't push it though as that has more of a potential to turn him off of learning versus actually getting him to do what you want him to do. He might just not be ready yet and that is ok too. All kids learn and develop at their own pace and there is nothing wrong with a 4 year old boy not being ready for this kind of work.
