Serious error[edit]

The original contributor to the article mentioned the creator of the Kirloskarwadi complex as Shantanurao Laxmanrao Kirloskar and further edits seem to have continued the same. However, according to [1] and other authoritative sources, the founder is Laxmanrao Kirloskar (full name: Laxmanrao Kashinath Kirloskar) and that Shantanurao is his eldest son. I will make the changes accordingly through a mix of move and re-directs. However, the stamp referred to in the article is commemorative of Shantanurao Laxmanrao Kirloskar [2] and the information would be retained in Shantanurao's article. --Gurubrahma 17:42, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

Now, it has been corrected (after my edits) in terms of factual accuracy. Also, the clean-up tag may be removed, imo. Any comments??
