General comments: This was a gift from my para (neighbourhood) friend, Gogol. Gogol was the petname of two boys in our neighbourhood (their real or formal names being Utsav and Sharthok). There is a cherished para tradition of using pet names over formal names, so Utsav and Sharthok simply became known as Gogol-One and Gogol-Two respectively.
