FYI

Description should contain the word, "THE FREE"

In Tamil, we've translated it as "கட்டற்ற" (kattatRa) (means "NO BOUNDS")
You add that word too. In Hindi it may be मुफ्त विश्वकोश (I am not sure.
Google translated)
You also in your Odia must have the word like the *muftha*. So, better add
that too before the encyclopedia. :)

Happy editing.
