    This is my current H bridge circuit implemented using BJT. How should I go about so that when 2 switch are turned on at the same time , it will not result in a short circuit.

    Use a single-pole, double-throw switch.

    Use a changeover switch, centre to positive, ends to transistors.

    You could also use a DPST or DPDT switch with centre off, this way you would have three positions/conditions.

    You need to read and understand this forum thread.

    In fact, you can just use the mechanical switch and dump the electronics.

    I assumed the wire junctions in the bottom right were some kind of inputs (PWM?).
