  • $\begingroup$ Message to users who down-voted - please at least provide some comments or feedback to this question, so I could change things that seems to be wrong, incomplete or inappropriate! $\endgroup$ – Kristaps Vilerts Apr 15 '16 at 10:52

  • $\begingroup$ @manshu Thanks for feedback. In a minute I will add update. $\endgroup$ – Kristaps Vilerts Apr 15 '16 at 10:56
