Dear Ankur Da,

Yes, indeed the article is really good. We (me and Pankaj Mahanta) have
been planning for a long time to write a book with ten essays on
mathematics and mathematicians in Assamese. Somehow the project has not
gone very far ahead. We have three essays so far only.

With regards,
Manjil
