Being a beginner, which camera I should buy?. Canon 1200d or Nikon d3200. I would love to have detailed analysis between them. And suggest some standard lens for that particular camera, for example - Canon 55-250mm or Canon 70- 300mm which one is better?

How a camera feels is far more important than its technical specification. You could easily miss a shot completely because you're mucking about with an unintuitive menu. The best way to determine which camera is better for you is to go and try them.

It's important to remember that you're not just buying a camera, you're buying into a selection of lenses and accessories, so think about the long term.

go for d3200 obviously. are you talking about 70-300mm f4-f5.6 IS or 70-300 f2.8 IS USM?

well here is my suggestion. you don't need too much focal length. for my situation 50 mm is too much I am using a 50mm 1.8 and it's too much for me in portrait? so I am planing to switch to 35mm. here is what I mean are you shooting animals or people? go for larger aperture than larger focal length.

70-300mm f/4.0-5.6G Telephoto Zoom Lens. I'm actually looking for good portrait shots and decent landscape shots. So which lens I should opt for?

go for 50mm 1.8 that's the best for portrait and nothing else better than the nifty fifty if you are in a budget. I am planing to how a 35mmm 1.2 but can you imagine how expensive it is? if you want portraits go to primes if you want a wildlife photo go to zoom.
