As guided by izhar sb and i will also use this

1) Change the pot now, take the biggest pot you can manage
2) Keep the pot beside any pillar, trellis... i.e very strong support
3) Climbers need to tie-up as they dont twine themselves
4) Potting mix should be 50:50 manure:soil (soil must be fresh)
5) Spray Imidacloprid every 15 days, whether you see pests or not
6) NPK 20:20:20 1 teaspoon in 4 litre water on weekly basis, i.e. 1 litre of this solution alternate day

Follow these steps:

1) Remove all leaves and flowers and flower buds
2) Immerse them completely in water for 2-3 hours
3) Plant them in 8 inch pot with fresh balu mitti (no fertilizer)
4) Put the plant first in pot then fill balu mitti just enough to cover the roots
5) Cut the branches to 6 inch maximum
6) Water lavishly then cover them with transparent plastic sheet
7) After 7 days remove the sheet and water again, keep them under full sun and water daily
8) They will sprout inshaAllah in 15 days
9) No fertiliser is required for 1 month, after that i'll let you know

Thank you both for awesome guide .. will do it today... Inshallah..

Izhar bhai 4) Put the plant first in pot then fill balu mitti just enough to cover the roots ..

this means root will have to touch the base of pot only .. if balu will have to cover the rose. and 8 inch pots main lagaon ga to kab Pot change ki zaroorat pare gi... ?
