How to add Disqus comment box on Blogger blog?

Blogger introduced post embeded comment form after a long time. Though it has all the functionality, look-wise Blogger blog is not very attractive.

New comment form has more field like we usually have on WordPress powered blogs. Comments are neatly formatted and you can subscribe to RSS feed to follow up comments. Besides, users of Disqus can directly comment on your blog using their repestive IDs for more connected approach. You can moderate comment on blog by logging into account at Disqus website.
