Dear Naresh,

Quotes you have given in your response to this article, I think they are of Utkalmani Gopabandhu Das and not Madhusudan Das. Always there is a confusion between Utkalamani and Utkal Gourav. To my belief it might have been done inadvertantly. My request to you that please check it once again and correct me if I am wrong.

Hi Krishna, You're absolutely right. It was Utkalamani Gopabandhu Das, not Utkal Gourav Madhusudan Das. So, I've changed and corrected in my first review.
