Hi Pradeepto,

I love it, it changes from KDE style (I especially enjoyed the More Cool 
Stuff ;-)
Just 1 typo: KVerbos and not KVerbose

Do you have the source in some form like ODF? I'd like to make that 
presentation available from the Edu website!

Thanks for promoting KDE-Edu and wow, you India KDE people, you rock!!!

Best regards,
