How-to take RDP/SSH access to Azure VMs privately using Azure Bastion Host

Azure Bastion is new fully managed PaaS (Platform as a Service) service offered by Microsoft which enables you to take RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) and SSH (Secure Shell) access to your Azure virtual machines. If you do not have VPN capacity available for your azure cloud infrastructure, you would have to assign public IP to your Azure VM and allow the RDP port (3389) and SSH port (22) on Azure Firewall (called NSG) from the internet.
