The error tells you what the problem is - the directory you want to mount to doesn't exist. Create it with mkdir:

# mkdir /mnt/home/bernardraj/LINUXSHARE.

Edit: if you know the directory does exist, make sure you've got the capitalisation correct, case does matter under Linux!

Also, not sure if "fat32" is valid as a type. It may be, though I've always used "vfat" when mounting FAT 32 partitions.
