Hi Gautam,

Quoting G. Garai (gautam.garai at saha.ac.in):

as there have not been better answers yet, I dare to offer something I once
did in one project many years ago. It might not be good, but it still

What I did was to define my own page styles.

\makeatletter	% allow @ as part of command names
\def\ps at myfancyheadings{
	% add head and foot definitions for the 'normal' pages here
\def\ps at myspecialfancyheadings{
	% add head and foot definitions for the first page here
\makeatother	% revert @ to its special meaning(s)


% if you do that first, you can be more sloppy with what you have to
% include in your own page style definitions:
% now call your own page style definitions:

As my last encounter with fancyheadings was many years ago, I cannot tell
you what exactly is needed in those page styles.
