Corrections to History:Cuddalore under British Regime

The following corrections are made to the article History:Cuddalore under British Regime

Fort St.David was built in 1653 A.D. by Elihu Yale (instead of Eligu El).The fort was renovated and restrengthened on 1693,1698,1702,1725,1740 and on 1745 (instead of 1975:excuse me - a blunder).

Until 1758 Cuddalore was the capital to South Indian territories which was under British control then (instead of capital of Tamil Nadu.NOTE:Tamil Nadu as a state was yet to be formed ).

Nawab Umdat-ul-Umara built Gadilam Castle in.....(instead of Uthulla).
