Dear Mr. Jayanta,
Thank you very much for noticing the slip. Hope to get messages from you.

Dear Mr. Tim,
I am very glad to be selected. Thank you for fixing the slip.
Wish RNW related everyone my greetings.

Hi, the bright boys of Euro Hit 40 Team,

Your result for the 38th Competition seems to have gone haywire. While the country of one of the three winners, Mr Nazmus Sadat is mentioned as India, the "flag certificate" is that of Bangladesh. A slip, would you say?

 Jayanta, what would I do without the eagle eyes of people like you! After I changed the flag to the correct one (of Bangladesh), I thought I had changed the name of the country too... maybe I did, maybe I didn't.. but clearly I didn't save the changes! Thanks for alerting me to this error! Best wishes, Tim,
