Azhagi - God's Own App - Addins for MS Excel - Tamil Fonts Converter (AND) Sanskrit Tamil Colorizer, as of now - All details related to them hereunder.
The first version of this page was uploaded on 5-Sep-2022. It will undergo further updations at regular intervals, going forward. In other words, I will continue to keep updating it.

Important Note

This page which remained private (shared by me only with select users) until 07-Sep-2022 became public first via this and this facebook posts of mine. Those of you who are visiting this page for the first time, kindly please read this section (How to avail AAE), fully and thoroughly, and proceed ahead, if you need proper support/guidance from me. If you do not need my support/guidance and hence opt to avail AAE in some other way (from your near/dear/friends/contacts/etc. who have already availed AAE by emailing to me), then so be it. No issues, but please understand that you are totally acting on your own then, with regard to any aspect related to AAE. It will be practically immpossible for me, as an individual developer, to give my guidance/support at any point of time (now or in the future), in any manner, to those who avail AAE by not emailing/messaging to me directly. Kindly please understand the same and kindly bear with me.

Azhagi's Addins for MS Excel (AAE, for short). What is it?

By/With God's Grace, its a new app (containing a suite of modules - Tamil Fonts Converter, Sanskrit Tamil Converter, etc.) for Windows desktops/laptops that has been developed for the benefit of all those who are in need of the same. These modules reside inside MS Excel itself as addins/plugins and thus you can (and need to) operate them from within MS Excel only. Much like the other apps of Azhagi, AAE is also 100% free, for life.

Is there any other software like AAE?

As far as I know, there is no software of this kind. So, AAE is after all a very humble attempt by me to showcase a different dimension for Tamil/Indic computing. That is all to it. Personally, it is 'futuristic' to me, since I have tried to create these kinds of 'Addins' (AAE and AAW) for the first time and since there are no software like these available so far.

How to Download AAE?

Kindly read this section ("How to avail AAE?") section FULLY. Clear-cut instructions are present therein as to how to obtain the download link for AAE from me.

Features overview of the 'Sanskrit Tamil Colorizer' Addin module

  • This module has not yet been implemented in AAE but it is neveretheless available in AAW already, for those who wish to avail it.

Features overview of the 'Tamil Fonts Converter' Addin module

  • The Tamil Fonts Converter Addin can do the following in any open MS-Excel document:
    - Unicode to NonUnicode conversion
    - NonUnicode to Unicode conversion
    - NonUnicode to NonUnicode conversion
    - With ALL formatting (Bold, Italic, Underline, Alignment-L/R/C/J, Tables, Colors, etc. etc. etc.) intact.
    - In a Super-fast and Easy manner.

  • For all the following cases:
    - ANY Selected cells in either the Active Sheet or All Sheets
    - ALL the cells in either the Active Sheet or All Sheets
    - From ANY/Default/Specific Unicode/NonUnicode font to ANY/Default/Specific NonUnicode/Unicode font
    - After Unicode to NonUnicode conversion, if at all you wish to, you can convert any of the existing quotes in the document to any of the quotes (usually decorative ones) available in the NonUnicode font.

  • Examples:
    - You can make selections in the converter's opening screen in such a way that in a workbook containing Unicode Tamil text in several Unicode fonts (Vijaya, Latha, Nirmala UI, etc.), the converter converts Tamil text in 'Nirmala UI' font alone to 'Ka Aanandham' NonUnicode font specifically. Tamil texts in fonts other than 'Nirmala UI' (Latha, Vijaya, etc.) will be left intact, without conversion.
    - Similarly, you can make selections in the converter's opening screen in such a way that in a workbook containing NonUnicode Tamil texts in several 'Ka' fonts (Aanandham, Virundhu, Yaazh, etc.), the converter converts Tamil text in 'Ka Yaazh' font alone to 'Arial Unicode MS' font specifically. NonUnicode Tamil texts in fonts other than 'Ka Yaazh' will be left intact, without conversion.
    - During any conversion process, the English texts will be kept intact but only in cells as a whole, as of now. English texts intermixed with Unicode or NonUnicode texts in cells wont be kept intact, as of now.

  • OPTIONS:
    Kindly experiment by ticking/unticking the following options:
    - Active Sheet Alone
    - Selected Cells only
    You can try combinations of both ticked, both unticked, either one of them only ticked.
    And, while converting, you can select single cell alone and try to convert too.
    You can try selecting multiple cells (say 5) in 5 different Unicode fonts and try to convert only one of them.
    As you can infer from the above, various combinations are possible. Kindly take your own time to test out whatever combinations possible for you and let me know if any of the combinations do not work. Thanks in advance.

  • NOTE:
    Inter-family conversion is also possible (e.g. Unicode Latha to Unicode Nirmala UI; Ka Brammam to Ka Virundhu) in a 2-step process. I will try to make it straightforward (1-step process) in a later version.
    Simple cases of changing texts in one unicode Tamil font (Latha) to another one (Nirmala UI) is easy to effect manually itself - just select the text and apply a different font. But, what I am referring to are the "not-so-simple" cases. For instance, kindly consider the following:
    Suppose there is a 50-sheets workbook which has cells with texts in multiple Tamil Unicode fonts and suppose you need only Tamil texts in 'Latha' font to be converted to 'Nirmala UI' font. Doing it manually (selecting a cell and changing font) in a 50-sheets workbook would be highly time-consuming.

  • Data files used by the converter:
    --
    AzhagiPlus-TamilFontEncodings-DefaultFontToBeUsed.txt
    AzhagiPlus-NonUniSearchPatterns.txt
    AzhagiPlus-Unicode fonts.txt
    AzhagiPlus-TamilFontEncodings.txt
    --

  • Customisable data files
    The first 3 files in the above list of 'Data file' are customisable! i.e. you can edit them to suit your own convenience.
    But, please take time to understand the logic behind these text files so that you edit them correctly.
    Particularly, in the case of the first 2 files, take care that the lines count remain intact (as in the original). That's paramount.

  • Data files generated by the converter itself (to be read and used consequently):
    --
    AzhagiPlus-WinFontsList.txt
    --

  • NOTE:
    If ideas of any other addin modules come to your mind (I have some ideas for one or two other addin modules already), kindly let me know. When time permits, I can work on them.

Following are some results, as I checked out the features of the converter (in 32-bit MS Excel)

Note: The times (in seconds) I have given above are based on my own Win10 system's configuration. It may differ in your system based on your system's configuration.

Have any of the users checked out AAE's features so far?

Yes, 4 user-wellwishers have checked out AAE so far. They have sent me screenshots of the successful working of AAE in their systems.

Installation is a breeze. No issues in usage, as such

According to user-feedback and my own observations
  • Installation is a breeze. Just a second or two it takes to install, after you have read the initial infos displayed.

  • Absolutely no issues in starting MS Excel after the installation and seeing the tab and icons thereafter.

  • No issues while using the app, as such, except one or two not-so-significant errors (reported by one user-wellwisher) which I will investigate into soon.

Operating system and MS Office requirements

  • Win7(SP1) and above. In other words, all of Win7, Win8, Win10 and Win11 are supported.

  • MS Office 2007 and above.

OS and MS Office versions in which AAE has been tried out so far, ALL successfully

  • So far tested in Win7, Win10 and Win11. Working well.

  • So far tested in 32-bit versions of MS Office 2007, 2010, 2013, 2019 and 365. All well supported, as such.

  • So far tested in 64-bit versions of MS Office 2010 and 2021. Working well.

  • If you have tested in any other MS Office version and it is all smooth, kindly let me know the same.

Testimonials for AAE (from the users who have tested it so far)

  • uww1: Dear Sir, This is wonderful. Especially for MS Excel, this is a handy tool. Thanks for providing the link. I started using it with full satisfaction. May God bless you with all love and HIS divinity on you further.

  • Two other users whatsapped screenshots as feedback, stating how conversion takes place in 1 sec, 2 seconds, etc. One of them finally wrote: "Tested with success. All are working fine".

Testimonials for Azhagi, Reviews on Azhagi, Users of Azhagi - Since 2000 - For the info of all the ardent user-wellwishers of Azhagi

Have any users specifically asked for a 'Azhagi MS Excel Addin' in the past?

One of the users has been persistently asking for Tamil fonts conversion for MS Excel documents too (apart from the existing Tamil fonts conversion for MS Word documents in Azhagi+) since the past 4 or 5 years. He did not specifically mention that it has to be a addin but that is how his requirement has got fulfilled finally.

Azhagi's Addins for MS Word and MS Powerpoint possible?

  • Azhagi's Addins for MS Word (AAW, for short) aleady exists.
  • Azhagi's Addins for MS Powerpoint (AAP, for short) can be done but not in near future since specific requests from users have not arisen so far for AAP.

What is the current version of AAE and will there be future versions?

  • Current version of AAE is 1.2.
  • Yes, there will be future versions. One can suggest ideas for new addin modules.
  • I shall add the user-suggested addin modules in the future versions, as and when my time permits.

How to avail AAE?

  • Since AAE is a new application, some(not all) of the Antivirus software may mistakenly (i.e. wrongly) consider AAE as a virus. Hence, I have not provided any download link in this page, as of now. In other words, I am not in a position to make the download link publicly available, as of now. I am sure you fully understand and kindly bear with me on this. Otherwise, please note that functionally, AAE is all working perfectly, as of now.

  • If you are genuinely interested in availing^^ AAE, then kindly please TAKE YOUR OWN TIME (no urgency at all) to read the 5 sections mentioned hereunder, apart from any other matters (Features, Screenshots, Testimonials, A Saga of Love, etc.) which appear pertient to you in this page.

  • After reading the 5 sections, if you have "absolutely" no hesitancy in trying out AAE, then kindly let me know the same via email at [email protected]. Alternatively, you can let me know the same by 'messaging' me in Facebook messenger too.
    Note: I suggest you either join or even just visit Azhagi's Facebook Group before 'messaging' me, in case you are not yet aware of Azhagi's Facebook Group.

  • While emailing/messaging, kindly please CONFIRM to me, FOR SURE that you have read the following 5 sections fully and thoroughly. Amongst other things, I need you to understand fully well as to how your Antivirus software may behave while installing AAE (generating FALSE warnings on the installer OR completely deleting the installer itself, since AAE is a new app) and what best you can do in such cases. So, basically, with your interests in mind only, I am requesting you to read the aforesaid 5 sections. So, please do read. Thanks.

  • Upon receipt of your email/message (along with the above confirmation, FOR SURE), I shall promptly (rather, as promptly as possible) email/message you back the appropriate web page link for downloading AAE.

  • While emailing/messaging me, if you feel you are technically savvy enough, then, kindly read this and act accordingly so that I can send you the web page link to download the somewhat faster## version of AAE, if your system meets it's requirements.
    (##) At present, there are two versions of AAE, one of which works somewhat 'faster' than the other one.

  • Well, if you feel that you are not technically savvy enough, then, not at all a problem. In that case, by default, I shall email/message you back the web page link to download the somewhat 'slower' version of AAE.

  • After receiving the download link from me, if you need any help/support with respect to any aspect of AAE, at any point of time, kindly please read this and act accordinly.

  • How to use AAE, AAE's features' overview, AAE's screenshots, etc. have been already provided by me in this same page. So, kindly please read/see them fully, before contacting me with any doubts (after starting to use AAE).

  • (^^) When I say "avail", it does not necessarily mean that you personally have to have a need for AAE or interest in AAE. You availing AAE can be just to give me 'feedback on AAE too', to whatever extent you can, so that those users who have the need for AAE can get benefited, once AAE is slowly released to more and more users in future (in whatever ways I decide to release AAE, in times to come). Also, I have plans to add many more beneficial addins in AAE in the future, as and when my time/situation/health permits. So, your personal lack of need/interest for AAE need not deter you from giving me your feedback (to whatever extent you can) unless otherwise you are hesitant to try out AAE itself, for some reason or other. . If you have such hesitancy, then you may straightforwardly let me know the same and I shall not mistake you. In this context, I have to mention about Sri Imthiyas Mohamed who did just that - give his feedback (to whatever extent he could) on the installation/usage/uninstallation aspects of AAE though he was not having any specific need/interest in availing AAE.

Two versions of AAE, based on the "bitness" of your MS Excel

  • There are 2 versions of AAE available, as of now.

  • One of them (say, AAE32) works specifically in the 32-bit version of MS Excel only.

  • The other one (say, AAE-general) works in any version of MS Excel (whether it be 32-bit or 64-bit).

  • AAE32 is somewhat faster in its processing speed than AAE-general.

  • But, AAE32 does NOT work in the 64-bit version of MS Excel. Hence, AAE32 should NOT be installed in a system having only a 64-bit version of MS Excel installed in it.

  • To find out the bitness of your MS Excel, as to whether it is 32-bit or 64-bit, kindly read this. It is an EXTREMELY simple procedure only, as such.

  • Once you are able to "assuredly" find out the bitness of your MS Excel and if (and only if) it is 32-bit, then, while emailing/messaging me, please mention the same specifically, in bold, phrasing it as "I have a 32-bit MS Excel".

  • In case you specifically mention as above, then I shall send you the web page link to download the installer which is 'specific for 32-bit MS Excel alone'.

  • As of now, the installer which is 'specific for 32-bit MS Excel alone' is named "Azhagi's Addins for 32-bit MS Excel - SETUP.exe". And, the "general" installer (i.e. for any version of MS Excel - either it be 32-bit or 64-bit) is named "Azhagi's Addins for MS Excel - SETUP.exe".

  • Suppose you find that your MS Excel is a 64bit version of MS Excel only. And, suppose you wish to avail the somewhat greater speed of AAE32. Then, what to do? Kindly read this, if you feel you are technically savvy enough, and act accordingly.

How to know whether you have 32-bit or 64-bit MS Excel?

  • MS Excel 2007 is 32-bit, by default. It does not have any 64-bit version.

  • If you have installed MS Excel 2010 in your system, then click on 'File->Help' menu item and then see under 'About Microsoft Excel' on the right side and it will show the bitness info.

  • If you have installed MS Excel 2013 or above, then, to know its bitness, just go through the info/steps in this page.

  • Just a useful info: I understand from this page that from Office 2019 onwards, the default Office installation is in 64-bit mode whereas for earlier Office versions, the default installation was 32-bit mode.

Checklist: What to do before installing AAE and during/after installation of AAE?

  • Before starting to run the AAE installer, I suggest you kindly SAVE all your open MS Office documents (whichever need to be necessarily saved) and then CLOSE all your open MS Office applications (MS Excel, MS Word, MS Outlook, MS OneNote, etc.), before continuing with the installation.

  • During installation of AAE app, I suggest you please read well the opening 'License' info and the HIGHLIGHTED (in red) info next, before the actual installation of AAE starts.

  • While installing AAE, your AntiVirus application (Windows Defender, NAV, AVG, Avast, K7, etc.) "might" caution/warn you about the installer but that is only quite normal since this is the first time it is seeing the AAE installer. These "mistaken warnings" are called as FALSE positives (an extremely vexing issue for individual developers like me). So, you can proceed ahead normally, informing your AntiVirus warning screen that it is "Okay" for you to proceed ahead with the installation.

  • In case of Windows Defender, you need to click 'More info' and then 'Run Anyway' in its first warning screen (if any).

  • Mistakenly, if your AntiVirus app does not allow you to download/use the AAE installer at all (OR deletes the installer itself completely), then what best you can do is to read this section and also this one and act accordingly.
  • During the installation process, you cannot change the default installation destination path of "C:\Azhagi - God's Own App\Azhagi's Addins For MS Excel\". You shall not change this path after installation too. Sorry that the installation path is hardcoded. I could effect the functioning of AAE only with an hardcoded installation path.

  • Once the installation is completed, you will not find any icons in the Desktop or QuickLaunchBar since the addins operate from within MS Excel only.

  • So, instead of searching for any icons in the desktop, you just need to start MS Excel as usual and you will find an extra menu item 'அழகி (azhagi.com)' at the top of your MS Excel application.

  • Click on that menu item and you will find either 'text links alone' OR 'icons with text links' for both the 'Tamil Fonts converter' and 'Sanskrit Tamil Colorizer'

  • If you are effecting conversion/colorisation of an existing important workbook, then kindly PLEASE DOUBLY ENSURE that you have taken a BACKUP of that document before effecting any conversion/colorization/etc. Better to have the backup both in your system's hard disk and in an external hard disk or pen drive.

  • Please try AAE in your personal computer only first. Thereafter, you may try it in your office system(s), "if at all" you have the need to install and use AAE in your office system(s) too, and "if at all" your office gives you full permission to use AAE in your office system(s).

AntiVirus applications' FALSE warnings/deletions and the great problems caused by them to individual developers like me

  • Please read this - https://www.azhagi.com/helps#SetRightYourAV - to know ALL about what all problems are caused by "FALSE positives" generated by AntiVirus software.

  • Sometimes, the AAE installer may be completely deleted by your Antivirus application too.

  • All these kinds of behaviour by Antivirus applications are indeed a vexing issue for individual developers like me but nothing much can be done about it unless I spend money (annually) on digitally signing all the software I develop.

  • For one's info, it took me nearly 10 days of various activities to see that the installers are acceptable by Windows Defender! How much invaluable time of a developer lost in such activities!

Which AntiVirus software do not pose any issues, as such, with regard to AAE?
What best can be done in case you face issues due to your AntiVirus app?

  • Windows Defender does not pose any issues, as such. It "may" however identify AAE as an unrecognized app in its initial screen. You just need to click 'More info' in that screen and then click the button 'Run Anyway'. Thereafter, it "may" say that AAE is from an unknown publisher. All this is normal. You just need to click 'Yes' and proceed ahead with the installation. That's all. If all these initial warnings have to be avoided, I need to go for signing my software only, which is an annual affair costing a lot. As of now, I do not wish to go for that for an app like AAE which is 100(000......)% free for life. I dont know whether the software industry will ever change to allow freeware developers like me to sign their software for free.

  • As far as I can say, in my personal humble opinion, Microsoft's inbuilt 'Windows Defender' application is a more than enough security since Win7 itself. Personally, I have been using 'Windows Defender' only since my Win7 days itself (i.e. since more than a decade), in all my Windows systems.

  • However, you are the best judge when it comes to your own systems. If you use and prefer to continue to use external AntiVirus software like NAV, Avast, AVG, K7, etc., then so be it.

  • So, if you have NAV, AVG, etc., what might happen? These antivirus applications "may" prevent you from installing AAE. What to do in that case, I have written in detail here - you may please read if and when possible for you and act accordingly.

Help and Support

  • If you are not known to me personally, then please visit the contacts page to know the difficult circumstances in which I am developing Azhagi free apps (which include AAE and AAW too).

  • With the above in context, please understand that it is practically impossible for me to provide support at a personal level.

  • So, as requested in azhagi.com/contacts, kindly please join and post your queries in Azhagi's Faceboo Group (wherein only I generally answer all users' queries). My answer to your query will help many more who have the same/similar question in their minds.

  • Azhagi's Faceboo Group is nothing but Azhagi's SUPPORT forum. It is not a personal facebook page of mine. So, it is solely for Azhagi only, as such.

  • On how to join the above-mentioned forum, how to post in it, etc., kindly please read my humble, detailed and clear-cut instructions (in both English and Tamil) here. My support is 100% free, of course.

  • Please note that you can post your query anonymously too, if privacy is your concern.

  • If at all possible, write to me your query in Facebook messenger too, simultaneously. If writing in Facebook messenger is not possible, then, if possible, email your query too (to [email protected]), simultaneously.

  • Once you post your query in Azhagi Facebook Group, I will reply to the same, mostly in Azhagi Facebook Group itself. But, sometimes, I might reply to you in Facebook Messenger too. Or, sometimes, I may opt to reply via Email itself, in case you had emailed your query too. So, please check for my reply in FB messenger or Email too, if you do not get to see it in Azhagi Facebook Group even after 24 hours. You may contact me in facebook messenger too if you do not get to see my reply anywhere (group/email/messenger) even after 24 hours.

  • Thanks in advance for your understanding in the above regard.

  • NOTE: Before posting your query, please read this section (Easy solutions to issues faced, if any, while effecting conversions). Answer to your query might be existing therein already.

  • Important NOTE: Both while posting your query in Azhagi's Facebook Group and while replying in your post's thread later on, kindly take care that you do not mention the download link of AAE I emailed you. Because, some users may use that link itself to download and start using AAE even before reading the "availing" section. In such a case, they will not be knowing about the false/wrong warnings their Antivirus software may generate, the mistaken/wrong actions their Antivirus software may effect, during the download/installation of AAE. So, they may readily believe their Antivirus software's false/wrong warnings and mistaken/wrong actions, leading to various confusions in their minds. Hence, my request not to mention the download link. I am sure you understand.

Any direct link to DOWNLOAD AAE available anywhere in this page?

  • Sorry, as of now, no direct download link has been provided in this page.

  • Kindly please read the reasons for the same in this section ("How to avail AAE?") above.

  • You can of course readily obtain the link to download AAE from me if you read the "How to avail AAE?" section above, FULLY.

How to Download AAE?

  • Kindly read the "How to avail AAE?" section above FULLY.

  • Clear-cut instructions are present therein as to how to obtain the download link for AAE from me.

You have only 64bit version of MS Excel and you wish to avail the greater speed of AAE32. What to do in that case?

For one or more reasons, if you really wish to try out AAE32 (i.e. AAE for 32-bit MS-Excel) since it is somewhat faster then AAE, then my suggestion is for you to install a 32bit version of MS Office side by side your 64bit version of MS Office. While installing a 32-bit version, I think you need to choose a lower version of Office. For e.g. if you have 64bit version of Office 2021 installed in your system, you can opt to install Office 2007 (which is 32 bit version by default and hence the safest option) side by side. In fact, I believe you can choose to install MS Excel 2007 alone instead of the whole Office 2007. If at all you need any further help on this matter, you can get to talk with one of the user-wellwishers who has tried my suggestion and succeeded fully. When you write to me in email, I can let you know the user-wellwisher's contacts.

Easy solutions to issues faced (if any) while effecting conversions

  • Well, so far, no major issues have been reported by users who have tried out AAE (Azhagi's Addins for MS Excel)

  • If you still face any issues during any of the conversions, please do contact me with samples of inputs and ouputs. But, not before you have written or said "at least" a few words of thanks to the Lord Almighty and a few words of praise to the Lord Almighty. The more thanks and praise you express in your words to the Lord Almighty, the more happy I shall be. Sairam.....

  • Please note that the existence of some AutoCorrect and AutoFormat options may cause problems sometimes. So, it is better to untick ALL the Autocorrect and AutoFormat options which you feel or know already that they might interfere with the conversion process.

This is only a tip of the iceberg. Sky is the limit. Hope other youngsters will take over, to do more

What is accomplished (with regard to Tamil/Indic computing) via the 2 (as of 07-Sep-2022) addins I have made availale in AAE is just a 'tip of the iceberg'. Much much much more can be accomplished via further MS Word addins. Only sky is the limit. So, I request other developers (esp. youngsters) to get into the Addins world, if at all possible for them, and introduce (m)any other helpful addins in MS Word, MS Excel, etc. which can provide a different dimension to Tamil/Indic computing and be of immense benefit to the society. I am getting old myself (55 years running, as of 7-Sep-2022). So, it will be great if youngsters can take over from here, with regard to Addins.

How I happened to develop these addins?

I have been wanting to do these kinds of Addins ever since a decade or so but because of lack of time, I could not. It is just that an user, in 2021, requested for a way to automate the user's 'Sanskrit Tamil Colorization' work in MS Word. It was God's WILL that, in June 2022, HE wanted me to meet the user's request as an addin in MS Word and see it fructify. Once it got fructified, it was again GOD's will to create an inkling in me to try 'Tamil Fonts Conversion' as an MS Word Addin immediately. I tried and it worked out too. That's all to it. Thereafter, I tried the same in MS Excel and it fructified therein too. But, in all this process, 3 months have gone by now (as of 7-Sep-2022). If I had not done these addins, then Azhagi+'s next version would have been ready by now. That's exactly why I hesitated to try developing Addins all these days because I knew that once I attempt it, it will consume a big chunk of my time. Anyway, having attempted it and seen how helpful it is, it is all immense Divine satisfaction only for me, at the end of the day. I feel the urge now to create more addins in future. But then, that will further delay the release of the next version of Azhagi+. So, I don't know what exactly is going to happen with regard to Azhagi+'s next version. Anyway, finally, I will be flowing along with whatever the Divine Will is, only! Sairam.....

Your suggestions, feedback and testimonials

  • Kindly please give me suggestions for what other addins I can make. Anything other than 'Grammar/Spell'checker can be suggested, since I simply do not have time to do a 'Grammar/Spell'checker.

  • If you have availed AAE and started using it successfully, then, if and when possible, kindly test out all its features and give me your feedback on every aspect of AAE.

  • Sharing your hearty happy feelings on how AAE is benefitting you and/or society is most welcome, of course. :)

A very humble request - Kindly spread the news of AAE

  • Kindly spread the news of AAE, in whatever/whichever ways you deem fit, so that many more of the society get benefited.

  • Please note that even if you do not have the need for AAE, it is only natural that 100s of others may have the need but not yet aware of AAE. So, kindly keep spreading the news of AAE. Thanks.

  • For a sample on how one can spread the news of AAE and/or AAW, here is one - a hearty facebook post by Shri. raguveeradayal sir. Thanks a TON to him.

A very humble request - Try out AAE - EITHER to 'Spread its news' OR to 'Give me feedback'

Even if you do not have the need for AAE, if you think you have absolutely no hesitancy to try out AAE (after reading the "How to avail AAE?" section above), then:
    EITHER:
  • If at all possible for you (no compulsion at all, whatsoever), if and when your time/situation permits, kindly try out AAE and get to know about its features to whatever extent possible for you. Because, if you do so, even if you do not feel the need for AAE or its features, you can still tell about AAE to others who are in need of the same so that many more of the society get benefitted. Thanks in advance.

  • OR:
  • You can try out AAE just to give me 'feedback on AAE' too (to whatever extent you can, on AAE's installation/usage/etc.), so that those users who have the need for AAE can get benefited, once AAE is slowly released to more and more users in future (in whatever ways I decide to release AAE, in times to come).
NOTE: If you, as an ardent user-wellwisher, have already availed and started using AAE, then, if and when possible, kindly test out ALL its features and give me your feedback on every aspect of AAE; give me suggestions for enhancements or new features; give me suggestions for new addins; etc. etc. etc.

FINAL and VERY IMPORTANT NOTE

  • If (and only if) you very much wish to share## the download link of AAE you received from me with anybody** else interested, you may do so but then those who are downloading/installing AAE in that manner^^ are definitely doing so on their own will. I have no part to play, whatsoever, in that action of theirs. Also, in no circumstances will I be able to provide them support in any manner with regard to any aspect of AAE, now or in future. One has to kindly bear with me for the same. Thanks for one's understanding in this regard.

    (^^) i.e. without reading the "How to avail AAE?" section in this page and thereupon emailing me at [email protected]

    (##) EITHER because you feel that you yourself can provide the support (if any) needed by them at any point of time (now and in future) OR you feel that those with whom you share the installer are tech-savvy enough and do not need any external support either from you or me, at any point of time (now and in future).

    (**) At this moment, I feel:
    1. You shall share the download link of AAE only with individuals "personally known to you" and also only if they are "interested". To know whether they are "interested", you can brief them about AAE and ask them to read the salient features of AAE (listed in this page).

    2. Once they are interested, if the person known to you is reasonably tech-savvy, then they shall read the "to-be-compulsorily-read" 5 sections by themselves and act accordingly.

    3. If the person known to you is not tech-savvy OR does not understand English well, then, if at all possile for you, you shall explain them about the 5 sections yourself and if they remain "interested", you shall share the download link with them, in the understanding that either you will take care of all their future support needs OR they will take care of the same themselves. I will have no future part to play, whatsoever, in this action of theirs. One has to kindly bear with me for the same. Thanks for one's understanding in this regard.

    4. Most importantly, do not share the download link of AAE to any large audience in one go - for e.g. emailing the download link to many of your contacts at the same time, posting the link in any group - Whatsapp group, Facebook group, etc.

A SAGA of LOVE

  • If I look back at the journey undertaken by this so-called-body with Azhagi SatKarma so far, all-in-all, I see it as a SAGA OF LOVE only.

  • I hope you, as a user-wellwisher of Azhagi, see the journey the same way. Sairam.....

அனைத்துப் பணிகளும் இறைவனுடையதே; உத்வேகமளிப்பவனும் அவனே, உதவுபவனும் அவனே, செயல்படுத்துபவனும் அவனே, சிந்தை மகிழ்பவனும் அவனே, ஆனந்தப்படுபவனும் அவனே.

Really speaking, you are He; not this body which you are carrying with you, like the snail, loaded with its own house, the shell! When the fascination for the body goes, the Light of the God within will shine and illumine your thoughts, words and deeds.
- Beloved Baba

உண்மையைச் சொன்னால், நீங்கள் இறைவனே அன்றி, தன் சொந்த வீடாகிய ஓட்டை சுமந்து செல்லும் நத்தையைப் போல, நீங்கள் சுமந்து கொண்டு செல்லும் இந்த உடல் அல்ல! உடல் மீதான ஈர்ப்பு மறையும்போது, அகத்தில் உள்ள தெய்வீக ஜோதி, உங்களுடைய சிந்தனைகள், சொற்கள், செயல்கள் ஆகியவற்றை ஒளிரச்செய்யும்.
