hrushi_kute, maybe the intention of this assignment is to learn you how to create multiple processes and still use shared memory. There are a few techniques for learning that.
Not only that, but those are very well documented and from the fundamentals of today's multitasking operating systems.
Since you keep asking the obvious, and apparently you did either not read the entire book, or stopped at the 'fork' chapter. I wonder once you graduated for this course how you will proceed in your professional life if you can't even put effort in finding out how to write multiple processes using shared memory.
Try to google with the keywords you gave us, and start to read.
