Note: The first version of this page was uploaded on 25-July-2022. It has undergone very many updations at regular intervals since then. And, I continue to keep updating it.

Azhagi's Addins for MS Word (AAW, 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, Direct Indic Typer, Auto Transliterator, Reverse Transliterator, 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 Word itself as addins/plugins and thus you can (and need to) operate them from within MS Word only. Much like the other apps of Azhagi, AAW is also 100% free - For life.

A video is worth 1000000 words.

If an image is worth 1000 words, then a video is worth 1000000 words, we can say. So, please watch the video below, atleast once. Though it is 'NOT a 100% substitute'^^ for all the info I have provided in this page, it can definitely give you a very good idea on the core points of this page. So, please do watch.

(^^) For instance,
1. AAW is a Unique software. It converts MS Word documents from one Tamil to another with ALL formatting intact (Bold/Italic/Underline, colors, alignments (left/right/center/full), tables, etc. etc. etc.). This is one of the BEST things about AAW's Tamil Fonts Converter. The video does not talk about this. And, as said in the video itself, not all of AAW's addins have been covered/explained in this video; they will be explained in upcoming future videos only.

2. Further, the video wrongly mentions that user has to send me details on his OS, Antivirus software, MS Office version, MS Office bit-ness, etc. None of them are required to be sent to me. As such, just a one-line email to me (requesting for AAW, with confirmation that you have read the 5 sections) was more than enough for me.


Is there any other software like AAW?

As far as I know, there is no software of this kind. So, AAW 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' (AAW and AAE) for the first time and since there are no software like these available so far.

How to Download AAW?

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

AAE (short for "Azhagi's Addins for MS Excel") is also available. A video demo on it below.

If interested in AAE, or even otherwise (to get some basic idea on how to avail AAE, install it, etc. too), you may please watch the video below, atleast once. Though it is not a 100% substitute for all the info I have provided in AAE's home page, it can definitely give you a very good idea on the core points in AAE's home page.


Azhagi++ (aka 'anbe sivam'), a standalone app like Azhagi+, is also available.

If interested in Azhagi++ (AzhagiPlusPlus), or even otherwise (since, as of June 2023, most of Azhagi++'s tools/features are same as that of AAW), you may please visit Azhagi++'s home page

Features overview of the 'Fonts and Styles' Addin module

  • As far as I can say, this is a "Unique" tool (at least amongst free software), for the kind of info it provides. But then, users who work with fonts a lottttt only can exactly tell whether this is a Unique tool or not (at least amongst free software).
  • All the columns are sortable. All the columns are resizable also.
  • As the 'Status Bar' (at the bottom) in this tool states, this tool provides some valuable extra info (for multi-styled fonts) than what you see in your OS's 'Fonts' folder. But then, I have only Windows 10. Those who have Windows 11 can only let me know whether what the status bar's statement about "extra info" is true for Windows 11 too.

Features overview of the 'Font Viewer' Addin module

    The interface is the same as in Azhagi+ but I have enhanced it with respect to certain aspects (esp. with respect to 'Win1252 characters - 128 to 159'). If you compare Azhagi+'s "Font Viewer" tool with this one, you can find out the differences, esp. with respect to NonUnicode Tamil fonts.

Features overview of the 'Turbo Font Viewer' Addin module

  • Grid-based display.
  • You can select characters (anywhere in the grid) with your mouse itself and copy/paste them to the clipboard by clicking the 'Copy characters' button.
  • Characters from the full range (0 to 1114111) of Unicode are shown^.
  • You can search by a unicode value "dynamically".
  • You can search by a character.
  • You can increase/decrease font size^^ of characters display "dynamically".
  • You can show font names either in English or in that font's language.
  • The cells show decimal values in the top right corner.
  • The cells have tooltips which clearly show both hexa and decimal values of the characters.
  • The character number is also shown in tooltips.
  • You can view the characters either by position OR consolidatedly.
  • You can see constituent characters when the 'search by character' string contains more than one character in it. For e.g. searching on Sri.
  • You can navigate the characters using Prev, Next, First, Last.
  • The row heights are changeable using mouse.
  • (^) If code points are present above BMP (basic multilingual plane) in a particular font, few of these code points do not get displayed in certain fonts (e.g. 'UniFont Upper' font. 'Rumi' Numerals, starting from 69216)
    (^^) Works in positional view only now.
Important Note: If you untick the 'Show characters from BMP alone' menu option, then, as of now (13-Jan-2023), this tool, in "few" systems (not all), may display some error messages. So, if you are not in any need to see characters above BMP (Basic Multilingual Plane), then there is no need for you to untick this option and thus you can use this tool ever without any issues. If and when I get time, I shall try to rectify this error in future. Thanks for your understanding.

Features overview of the 'All Unicode Characters Viewer' module

  • Grid-based display.
  • View all Unicode characters (from the BMP alone, as of now) in a single table (of varying columns, as per user's choice).
  • Highly flexible, in more than one way.
  • You can resize the UV tool's screen. i.e. change the height or width of the screen.
  • When you change the width, the number of columns accordingly change, automatically, and the cells of the grid rearrange themselves automatically.
  • You can change the height and width of the cell itself globally.
  • You just need to press the + and - buttons to change the cell height and width
  • When you change the width of the cell globally, the number of columns accordingly change, automatically, and the cells of the grid rearrange themselves automatically.
  • Since the number of columns change "dynamically", you can easily copy/paste characters in "different" tabular formats (even as one single column of characters) to whichever other application you wish to. For instance, to Notepad OR ideally to MS Excel.
  • You can search for a Unicode character by value (e.g. 2949), "dynamically".
  • You can search for a Unicode code point by character (e.g. அ, ஸ்ரீ), "dynamically".
  • You can select any set of characters (square or rectangular area) from anywhere (left, middle, right, top, bottom) of the grid.
  • You can copy/paste the selected characters from the grid to the clipboard OR the entire set of characters of the grid itself, if you wish to, to the clipboard.
  • You can change the font in which the grid's characters are displayed.
  • You can change the size of the characters' display too.
  • gd
  • The default font, font size, column width and row height you wish to have at the startup of this tool can be set.

Features overview of the 'URL Normalizer' module

  • They are self-explanatory, I believe.

Features overview of the 'Sanskrit Tamil Colorizer' Addin module

  • It is self-explanatory, as such.

  • This app was made to meet the ardent request of an user, over a series of mail correspondences (in 2021).

  • What the user (TU, for short) desired can be summarised briefly as follows, via extracts from 2 different mails of TU:
    --
    I wish to know if Azhagi software or any others like Aksharamukha, can help me transliterate Sanskrit/Devanagari documents to Tamil with color coded fonts (instead of fonts with superscript or subscript coding, which I am currently getting from Aksharamukha app).
    Thank you in anticipation of the help you are extending and praying for Blessings of Almighty.
    Shall be ever grateful to you for this favor, since this will help lakhs of Tamilians like us to pronounce sanskrit slokas correctly.
    --

  • Not only the entire document, selected text also can be converted. Of course, in a Super-fast and easy manner.

  • The color-coding has been as per user's requirement. If you are interested in this app OR have requirement for this app, then note that the colors can be changed according to your own requirements by editing the 'Settings.txt' file in AAW's 'Sanskrit Tamil Colorizer' folder.

  • So, that's all about it.

  • Hereunder is TU's response, brimming with immense Gratitude to the Lord Almighty, seeing the solution offered.
    --
    Koti koti pranams to the Divinity shining forth in you and the great services you are rendering.
    ... .. .
    Profusely thanking you and heartily praying for your well being 🙏🙏🙏
    Lots of wishes and Greatest Regards
    --

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

  • For an input as you find below, it takes less than a second for the colorization to complete, after clicking the 'Colorize Sanskrit Tamil' button.

  • For 50 pages of this same text, it takes only 12 seconds (in 'my' Win10 system). A tremendous productivity boost for a user who does this "colorization task" regularly. Added with this is the advantage of having all existing formatting (B/I/U/tables/color/indentaion/etc./etc./etc.) in the document intact after conversion.

  • INPUT:

Testimonials for AAW's 'Sanskrit Tamil Colorizer' (from the users who have tested it so far)

    Note: 'uww' - short for user-wellwisher

  • uww1: I have been using Azagi for more than 15yrs. ... .. . Thanks for the addins provided by you. ... .. A great effort from you and no words to thank you. All GOD'S grace.

Great job. May the GOD give you more and more happiness and good health. ... .. . Once again பல கோடி நன்றிகள்.

Features overview of the 'Tamil Fonts Converter' Addin module

  • The Tamil Fonts Converter Addin can do the following in any open MS-Word 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 Text in the document
    - Entire text of the document
    - 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 document 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 document 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.

  • NOTE-1:
    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 100-page document which has Tamil 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 and changing font) in a 100-page document 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
    --

  • Unicode, SaiIndira, TSCII, TAB, TAM, Bamini & TamilBible, Vanavil, Shreelipi, STMZH, LT-TM [same as IndoWord], Gee_Tamil, DCI+Tml+Ismail, SunTommy, ELCOT-ANSI, ELCOT-Bilingual, Diamond, Amudham, Ka, Shree, Mylai Plain, TACE, Elango, Periyar, Priya, Chenet Platinum, KrutiTamil, TM-TTValluvar, Roja, MCL Kannamai, Baamini [not the same as Bamini], Needhimathi, Pandian, TBoomiS, APT-Sangam, Dev, TA-Arul, Sashi, Ganesha, Lakshmi, Tamil-Aiswarya, Adhawin, TmlCheran, Avaice Jasmine, KavipPriya, Vikatan - these are the 46 Tamil font encodings for which to-and-fro Tamil fonts conversion is possible.

  • Some font encodings like SR, RGB, etc. are covered under STMZH itself as their styles are exactly the same as STMZH. Same is the case with CN fonts (same as Chenet Platinu), Kalaham (same as Bamini), etc.

  • Patterns for fonts can be set in 'AzhagiPlus-NonUniSearchPatterns.txt' file (you can find this file in "C:\Azhagi - God's Own App\Azhagi's Addins For MS Word\Tamil Fonts Converter\" folder). For e.g. "STMZH, SR-, RGB_, RGB-, ST-" | "Bamini, Kalaham" | "Ka , JF" | etc. What this means is that when someone selects an encoding like STMZH in AAW's Tamil Fonts Converter (TFC, for short), the fonts listed under "Select From/To NonUni Font" will have not only your installed STMZH fonts listed but SR, RGB, etc. fonts too.

  • There is a 'swap' button (<>) available for swapping from/to font encodings easily.

  • All the options and selections in the 'Tamil Fonts Converter' screen are saved so that TFC always starts with the last saved settings.

  • There is a 'Convert As Plain Text' option also in TFC. Plain text conversions will always be lightning fast (for e.g. just 1 to 2 seconds even for a 60 pages MS Word document). That means, for 1 or 2 pages OR for very short texts, the time taken for conversion will be in micro/milliseconds and hence the TFC screen would report that as "0 seconds" only.

  • Apart from the above, please see the 'Change Log' in the download page of Azhagi++ too, to see the latest features added or latest modifications done with respect to the 'Tamil Fonts Converter' in it, as I keep releasing new versions of Azhagi++ too, now and then.

  • NOTE-2:
    If ideas of any other addins come to your mind (I have some ideas for one or two other addins 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 Word)

NonUnicode to Unicode
  • Selected text (having punctuations, vowel signs, English texts in-between, texts in "multiple" NonUnicode fonts) to 'Unicode' conversion - ALL following cases perfect
    - From 'Single' NonUnicode font (e.g. TA-Arul) to ANY Unicode font (i.e. system-defined default Unicode font.)
    - From 'Single' NonUnicode font (e.g. TA-Arul) to Default Unicode font (Nirmala UI, as per "my" choice)
    - From 'Single' NonUnicode font (e.g. TA-Arul) to Specific Unicode font (e.g. Tscu_SaiIndira)
    - From multiple NonUnicode fonts (Ka Anandham, Ka Agal, Ka Viradham, Ka Virundhu, Ka Yaazh, Bamini, TA-Arul) in a selected text in a table. Conversion of that selected text from 'Ka' to 'Unicode (ATM 546)' was all correct. 5 Ka fonts converted. Bamini, TA-Arul and English texts intact.
    - Conversion of selected text in tables also

  • Entire text - Lots of pages (conversion of 72 pages TA-Arul[single font] document with multi-column table in all 72 pages "with punctuations, mumbers, english texts" to specific Unicode font [TSCu_SaiIndira] in 317 seconds)
    - Conversion of 20 pages document with multiple NonUnicode fonts (Ka anandham, agal,viradham,virundhu,yaazh, Bamini, TA-Arul) with normal and table texts in each page. Conversion of that document from 'Ka' encoding (Any font) to specific Unicode font (uniAmma-1) was all correct. 5 Ka fonts got converted. Bamini, TA-Arul and English texts remained intact in their respective fonts. The conversion took 67 seconds.
    - Conversion of 84 pages SunTommy document with multi-colum tables to Unicode conversion - 214 seconds
    - Conversion of 80 pages 'Tamil Aiswarya Pulli' encoded document (with multi-column tables) to Vijaya Unicode font - 183 seconds
Unicode to NonUnicode (having punctuations, vowel signs, texts in "multiple" Unicode fonts)
  • Selected text (having punctuations, vowel signs, texts in "multiple" Unicode fonts) to 'NonUnicode' conversion - ALL following cases perfect.
    - In/From specific Unicode font (e.g. Tau-Marutham, Vijaya, etc.)
    - In/From default Unicode font (Nirmala UI, as per "my" choice)
    - In/From ANY Unicode font
    - In tables also
    - With old 'ir ri ree' also

  • Entire text (having punctuations, vowel signs, texts in "multiple" Unicode fonts) TO Bamini, Dci-Tamil-Ismail, etc.
    - In/From specific Unicode font (e.g. Tau-Marutham, Vijaya, etc.)
    - In/From default Unicode font (Nirmala UI, as per "my" choice)
    - In/From ANY Unicode font
    - In tables also
    - With old 'ir ri ree' also (use TAB font for NonUnicode font; you can see the difference nicely for old/new ir ri ree)
    - Lots of pages (conversion of 77 pages Unicode document with multi-column table in all 77 pages "with punctuations, mumbers, english texts" to TA-Arul font in 174 seconds)
    - Same above Unicode document to SunTommy conversion - 125 seconds
    - Conversion of 77 pages Vijaya font document (with multi-column tables) to 'Tamil Aiswarya Pulli' encoding - 108 seconds
Notes
  • Note-1: Conversion of selected text takes longer time (relatively) than conversion of entire text. So, unless otherwise needed, you may use 'Entire text' conversion itself. However, if time is not a constraint, you can very well go ahead using 'Selected text' conversion. It works perfectly. If time is indeed a constraint and if your selected text is large, then I suggest you copy/paste the selected text (from the document you are currently working with) to a new blank document and convert that new document's contents. Once that conversion is completed, you can copy/paste the new document's contents into the document you are currently working with.

  • Note-2: If you try to convert from Unicode to NonUnicode but if the text to be converted has content in that NonUnicode text itself intermixed already, then punctuation characters in that NonUnicode font (say, semicolon appearing as mey-pulli in a NonUnicode font) will get converted to visible punctuation characters in that same font. For e.g. semilon appearing as mey-pulli in Bamini font will appear as semicolon itself in Bamini font. In Bamini font, '@' character is semicolon. One way to avoid this happening is to choose a specific Unicode font (say, 'Latha' font) before starting the conversion. For that, ideally, your document should have all Unicode content in one Unicode font only (say, 'Latha' font)

  • Note-3: 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.

Comparing "AAW for 32-bit MSWord" (AAW32, for short) with the "MSWord document converter" provided from within Azhagi+.

  • AAW32 is 20x (or perhaps even 30x) times faster than the MS Word document converter provided from within Azhagi+.
  • For instance, - Conversion of a 77 pages Vijaya font document (with multi-column tables) to 'Tamil Aiswarya Pulli' encoding - only 108 seconds! - Conversion of a 80 pages 'Tamil Aiswarya Pulli' encoded document (with multi-column tables) to Vijaya Unicode font, WITH ALL ENGLISH TEXT INTACT - only 183 seconds!
  • AAW is not just about the great increase in speed of conversion (or) English texts being intact alone. You can convert from ANY/Default/Specific Unicode/NonUnicode font to ANY/Default/Specific NonUnicode/Unicode font.
  • Also, 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.
  • I observed that the "AAW for the 32-bit version of MS Word" was about 3 times faster than the "AAW for any version of MS Word".

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.

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

Yes, quite a few user-wellwishers have checked out so far. Two of them have tested AAW32 in both their home and office systems and found AAW working successfully in both the systems.

The first one of the user-wellwishers, suchchchchch a loving heart^^, was sooooooooooooooo overjoyed that he kept on talking for nearly an hour (on the night of Thursday, the 21st of July 2022). That muchchchchchchchchchch was his happiness!!!!

Whenever users share their joy and happiness, esp. in a fervent manner as above, with full of effervescent and bubbling happiness in their voice (over chat/phone) and in their words (written in whatsapp, email, etc.), I feel infinitely extreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeemely happy.

Because, the spirit in which I work is as follows:
  • If users are feeling excited/happy about Azhagi, I feel they are feeling infinitely excited/happy thinking of God.
    If users are thanking Azhagi/so-called-viswanathan profusely, I feel they are infinitely thanking the Lord Almighty.
    If users are blessing Azhagi/so-called-viswanathan-and-his-family, I feel they are actually infinitely blessing the whole of the cosmos.

    I say as above because I am an utter utter utter NOTHING entity and GOD GOD GOD alone is EVERYTHING.

    Azhagi is God's Own App. Not mine. I strive to remain an UTTER Non-Entity.

    Azhagi SatKarma = God. Azhagi = God. Sairam Sairam Sairam.....
The above spirit is actually imbued and suffused in every bit of blood, flesh, bone, nerve and pore of this so-called body of mine (இரத்தம், எலும்பு, தசை, நாடி, நரம்பு - எல்லாவற்றிலும் ஊறிப் போய்விட்ட ஒரு நிகழ்வு). And, Thanks to the Lord Almighty, Eternally, for making this happen because this did not happen overnight. It was a gradual yet smooth and profound transformation over time. Sairam.....

So, As Ever, All Glory and Thanks to the Lord Almighty Only. For Ever.

Sarvam Sri Krishnarpanamastu!!

Beloved Baba says: "Egoism will be destroyed if you constantly tell yourself, 'It is He, not I’, 'He is the force; I am but the instrument’. Keep His Name always on the tongue; Contemplate His glory whenever you see or hear anything beautiful or grand." (Source: https://www.azhagi.com/baba/2022/08-2022/nectars/azhagi-dot-com-baba-nectar-01-08-2022.php)

Well, me having written all of the above does not mean that I have perfected myself completely. No, not at all. I have a long long long infinitely long way to go still to perfect myself. I am just a 'work-in-progress' and thus obviously an entity with many a defects. So, what I have written above is with respect to 'Azhagi' alone. I just shared with you all, the spirit under which I do Azhagi-related works. That is all to it. Because, whenever an user-wellwisher expresses his happiness and gratitude, I keep praising and thanking the Lord Almighty like anything. What a joy that is and what joyous vibrations to the entire Cosmos that is!!! So, it is always deeply appreciated by this non-entity if and when you express your happiness and thanks - as much as you can, in as many ways as you can, as many times as you can.. Because, it was/is always between you and the Lord Almighty. It was never between you and me. As I have always said, I may die this next second but Azhagi will still continute to live as long as it is destined to and your journey with Azhagi will continue as long as it is destined to. So, you can see even by your own logic that it has always been between you and God only. So, my most humble request to you is to keep thanking God, keep praising God, while availing Azhagi OR while getting benefited from Azhagi, daily, even when you are not using Azhagi. Sairam.....

(^^) I take this opportunity to thank my dearest and loving-hearted Shri. Kesavan for all the love, humility and bakthi he possesses and the affection with which he expresses them in overflowing abudance, both while talking and while writing. அவர் அன்பிற்கு என்றென்றும் என் தலைவணக்கம். At this juncture I need to write about my Divinest brother Shri. Nithi Anand also who regularly whatspps me the words "அழகியின் புகழ் திக்கெட்டும் பரவட்டும்". I have lost count of how many times he has whatsapped so to me. Only a child-like heart can write so, "regularly", I humbly feel. He writing me so, regularly, tells me that he has clearly understood that "Azhagi is God's Own" and not mine. Long Live my Divinest Brother Shri. Nithi Anand (who was not in a situation to try out AAW as soon as it was available for availing; dear nithi could finally get to a situation to use AAW on 29-Aug-2022 only, making me feel quite happy). In the same breath, my hearty heartfelt thanks thinking of Shri. Ramesh Bapu sir's expansive love, every time he writes in Azhagi Facebook group. There are many more such loving user-wellwishers about whom all I have written in ack.php. If ever one's time/interest/mood/situation permits, one can opt to read them.

Gratitude, in loving humble remembrance of God's Glory and in Praise of the Lord Almighty

With regard to my request for thanking and praising GOD (as much as you can), if at all and when your time/interest/mood/situation permits, you may please read this - quora.com/Which-human-value-do-you-consider-the-most-important/answer/விஸ்வநாதன்-Viswanathan. And, this ever-beautiful Divine story. Sairam..... Jai Sairam.....

Testimonials for AAW's Tamil Fonts Converter (from the users who have tested it so far)

    Note: 'uww' - short for user-wellwisher

  • uww1: "Jai sai ram... Works perfectly sir, in my laptop also. Thanks a lot sir 🙏🙏🙏 🫡🫡🫡. அனைத்திற்கும் தங்களுடைய அன்பும், ஊக்கமும், தமிழ் மீது நீங்கள் வைத்துள்ள தீராத காதலும் தான் காரணம். இந்த தமிழ் சமுதாயத்திற்கு, என்னைப் போன்ற இளைஞர்களுக்கு, நீங்கள் முன்னுதாரணம் & விடாமுயற்சியின் ஆகச் சிறந்த எடுத்துக்காட்டு நீங்கள் தான் ஐயா. அதுமட்டுமல்ல, சிறந்த வழிகாட்டி. மொத்தத்தில் எங்களுக்கு நீங்கள் பொக்கிஷம். ‌பாபாவின் அன்பும், அருளும் என்றும் உங்கள் துணை நிற்கும். 🙏🙏🙏. Tomorrow all encodings, I will test sir. 🙏🙏🙏🙏. உங்களுக்கு எத்தனை முறை நன்றி சொன்னாலும் ஈடாகாது 🙏🙏🙏🙏. இருப்பினும் உங்களுக்கு எனது பாதம் பணிந்த நன்றிகள். உங்களை நேரில் சந்தித்து ஆசி பெற ஆவலோடு காத்திருக்கிறேன்.🙏🙏🙏. பாபாவின் கருணையால் நிச்சயம் நடைபெறும் என்ற எதிர்பார்ப்புடன்... I'm very excited to use Azhagi addin for Excel also. Eagerly waiting for it."

  • uww2: "Speed is superb sir. English fonts retained very well. Specific font conversion is also working good."

  • uww3: "அருமை!"

  • uww4: "Wow" (upon learning from me the coding language used for developing AAW)

  • uww5: "Happy to talk with you, Sairam. அளவில்லா ஆனந்தம் அடைந்தேன்."

  • uww6: "First, my appreciations, sir. Its a great work. To give addins inside an existing app is a great work."
    "This is such a deep work, involving lots of mental squeezing. Surely the joy and satisfaction one gets after such a work, when one sees the results of the conceptualisation finally getting fructified, is indeed indescribable."
    "Actually you have done such a big development work. Normally, in a software company, it is done as a team work. You have done this individually. I don't know what is the reward for this. But, God will definitely give a reward since you have done this for the society."

  • uuw7: வணக்கம் சார். தாங்கள் அனுப்பிய லிங்கிலிருந்து இன்ஸ்டால் செய்து பயன்படுத்தி பார்த்தேன். மிக்க பயனுள்ளதாக இருக்கிறது. ... .. . ... .. . இன்னொரு வசதி வேண்டும். அது என்னவெனில் , பயன்படுத்தும் நபர்கள் குறிப்பிட்ட FONTலிருந்து UNICODEக்கு மாற்றுவார்கள். CONVERTERல் FONT SELECTION செய்யும் இடம் COMBO BOX ஆக இருந்தால் வசதியாக இருக்கும். அதுவும், கடைசியாக பயன்படுத்திய FONTன் பெயர் DEFAULT ஆக SELECTIONல் இருப்பது போன்று வேண்டும். உதாரணமாக LT-TM லிருந்து UNICODE பயன்படுத்தியிருந்தால், அடுத்தமுறை WORD திறந்து அதில் CONVERTER CLICK செய்யும்பொழுது, COMBO BOXல், LT-TM TO UNICODE என்று DEFAULT-ஆக வர வேண்டும். இது என்னுடைய தாழ்மையான கருத்து. தங்களுக்கு ஏற்புடையதாக இருந்தால் தங்களுடைய மென்பொருளில் மாற்றம் செய்து வழங்கவும். தங்களுடைய இந்த இறைசேவை மென்மேலும் வளர்ந்து ஓங்கவும், தங்களுக்கு நீடிய ஆயுளும், நிறைசெல்வமும், புகழும், உடல் ஆரோக்கியமும் எல்லாம்வல்ல இறைவன் அருள்புரிய வேண்டி வணங்கி நிற்கிறேன். நன்றி!
    (டைப் செய்திருக்கும் இந்த செய்தி தங்களுடைய அழகி மென்பொருளை பயன்படுத்தி டைப் செய்துள்ளேன். மிக்க மகிழ்ச்சி)

  • uuw8: It's wonderful addin, anna, I have seen so far.
    Very very very very much useful tool, anna.

  • uuw9: I have just successfully converted the font from the {MS Word}document itself based on your guidance! ... .. .
    Thank you so much for sparing your time. May your service to humanity shine always.

  • A note on uww2:
    Actually, uww2 was persistently asking for 'English fonts retainment' (during NonUnicode to Unicode conversion) and 'Specific font conversion' in MS Word since the last 5 years or so. Time and again he would message me asking whether these features have been accomplished. And, he has been persistently asking for Tamil fonts conversion inside MS Excel documents too since the past 4 or 5 years. That way, he is extremely in need of AAE (Azhagi's Addins for MS Excel) and looking forward to the same eagerly.

  • My reply to uww1 hereunder:

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 MSWord Addin' in the past?

Yes, of course. Please see this Azhagi Facebook Group thread (request from user Narumpon Malar, Dt. Nov 2017). One other user had also requested (either over phone or email or whatsapp). Some other users might also have asked which I might have forgotten, over the years.

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

  • Yes, of course. In fact, Azhagi's Addins for MS Excel (AAE, for short) is already ready, since 05-Sep-2022
  • AAP (Azhagi's Addins for MS Powerpoint) can be done but not in near future since specific requests from users have not arisen so far for AAP.

Current version of AAW? Will there be future versions? Have plans to add more addins?

  • Current version of AAW is 1.9
  • Yes, there will be future versions. One can suggest ideas for new addins.
  • I shall add the user-suggested addins (and of course my own, which I have in mind) in the future versions, as and when my time permits.

Are you totally new to Azhagi's free apps?

    In case you have never used any of Azhagi's free apps earlier and have come here straight, I kindly request and suggest you to first download^^ and start using Azhagi+ (AzhagiPlus, released in 2011), get to know Azhagi's history since 2000, get to read the supremely hearty testimonials for it from its users, get to know about the media reviews for it, get to know about its range of users and extent of reach. After doing all that, if you are convinced that you can go ahead with the "downloading/installing/using" of AAW too, then come back to this page, read the availing section below and act accordingly.

    (^^) Azhagi+ is a straight download for anybody from https://azhagi.com/store#download. No need to read&confirm anything (as in this page). So, go ahead, download Azhagi+ and start using it. My best of prayers for all your noble deeds using Azhagi+.

How to avail AAW?

  • At the outset, I presume you are already a user of Azhagi+ (AzhagiPlus, which is a straight download from azhagi.com/store#download page) and you now wish to download/install and start using the Unique and Feature-Rich AAW (Azhagi's Addins for MS Word) also. If not and if you are totally new to 'Azhagi Free Apps', then please read this first.

  • Note: If you feel you are not technically savvy enough to read and understand the '5 sections' mentioned hereunder, then, you may always feel free to get in touch with Shri. Gopalan sir (one of the Group Experts of Azhagi Facebook Group), if that is perfectly okay for you. All about Shri. Gopalan sir and the ways of contacting him - HERE.

  • The compulsory reading of a set of 5 sections before you proceed with the downloading/installing/using of AAW

    I request you to kindly please read these 5 sections - hereunder, in this same page - compulsorily and thereafter decide for yourself whether to proceed or not, with the downloading/installing/using of AAW. Once you have decided that you have absolutely no issues in proceeding with the "downloading/installing/using of AAW", then (and then only), click the button below captioned "Click here to open the DOWNLOAD page of AAW". Prior to clicking the aforesaid button, you shall have ticked the checkbox below captioned "I CONFIRM 100%" too.

    I CONFIRM 100%: Once you tick this checkbox (captioned 'I CONFIRM 100%'), it will be considered by me as a clear-cut WHOLEHEARTED CONFIRMATION from you that you have read the required 5 sections (hereunder, in this same page). The 5 sections hereunder 'primarily' inform you on the various issues your AntiVirus software "may" pose in ANY or ALL of the processes of 'Downloading/Installing/Usage' of AAW.



    The 5 Sections

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

    • If you are genuinely interested in availing^^ AAW, 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 pertinent to you in this page.

    • As such, I need you to understand fully well as to how your Antivirus software may behave while installing AAW (for e.g. generating FALSE warnings on the installer OR completely deleting the installer itself, since AAW is a new app) and what best you can do in such cases. So, basically, with your interests in mind only, for your own good only, I am requesting you to read the following 5 sections. So, please do read. Thanks.

    • Once you have decided that you have absolutely no issues in proceeding with the "downloading/installing/using of AAW" and you have reached the download page of AAW (after following the instructions hereinabove), if you need any help/support with respect to any aspect of AAW, at any point of time, kindly please read this and act accordingly.

    • How to use AAW, AAW's features' overview, AAW'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 AAW).

    • (^^) When I say "avail", it does not necessarily mean that you personally have to have a need for AAW or interest in AAW. You availing AAW can be just to give me 'feedback on AAW' too, to whatever extent you can, so that those users who have the need for AAW can get benefited, once AAW steadily reaches more and more users in future. Also, I have plans to add more beneficial addins in AAW in the future, as and when my time/situation/health permits. So, your personal lack of need/interest for AAW need not deter you from giving me your feedback (to whatever extent you can) unless otherwise you are hesitant to try out AAW itself, for some reason or other. In this context, I have to mention about Sri Viswalinga Surya and Sri Imthiyas Mohamed who did just that - give their feedback (to whatever extent they could) on the installation/usage/uninstallation aspects of AAW though they were not having any specific need/interest in availing AAW.

    • Well, if you are using Azhagi free apps for spiritual/educational/societal purposes, kindly let me know (at [email protected]) with as much details as you can about such lofty works. Because, I feel the happiest when Azhagi free apps are used for such sublimely noble purposes.

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

    • Before starting to run the AAW 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 Word, MS Excel, MS Outlook, MS OneNote, etc.), before continuing with the installation.

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

    • While installing AAW, 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 AAW 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 application does not allow you to download/use the AAW 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 Word\". You shall not change this path after installation too. Sorry that the installation path is hardcoded. I could effect the functioning of AAW 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 Word only.

    • So, instead of searching for any icons in the desktop, you just need to start MS Word as usual and you will find an extra menu item 'அழகி (azhagi.com)' at the top of your MS Word 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 document, 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 AAW 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 AAW in your office system(s) too, and "if at all" your office gives you full permission to use AAW 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 AAW 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 AAW?
    What best can be done in case you face issues due to your AntiVirus app?

    • As per user-feedback, registered versions of 'K7' and '360 Total Security' (AntiVirus software) do not pose any issues.

    • Windows Defender does not pose any issues, as such. It "may" however identify AAW 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 AAW 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 AAW 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 AAW. 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.

    • Based on what I written in the above link, with regard to the issues posed by AntiVirus software, you (user-wellwishers) may kindly take the initiative (if at all, if at all, if at all you can), to write to the developers of the AntiVirus software developers, mentioning that AAW is totally virus-free (as done by Mr Madankumar here^^, by writing to the developers of Kaspersky Antivirus software that Azhagi+ is totally virus-free).

      (^^) An extract from that page is hereunder for your better understanding:
      // I use a software called Azhagi+, a freeware which helps me to type in Tamil on my system. ... .. . I was sure that the software was safe. So, i contacted the Virus lab and informed this. They asked me to email the software installation files, which i did. They replied me that the software is safe and that they have added it to their database and will be sending out a update for this. As said, they sent a update the next day and after that, the issue was resolved. It was nice to see that they listened to a customer's call and updated their database. Not sure how many will do this.

    Help and Support

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

    • With the above in context, please understand that it is practically impossible for me (author.php#GodIsGreat, aasiriyar.php#GodIsGreat) to provide support to you at a personal level. So,

    • For any doubts related to Azhagi free apps, you may kindly please get in touch with Shri. Gopalan sir (via Facebook Messenger, to start with) if that is perfectly okay for you. Thanks for your understanding in this regard.

    • All about shri. Gopalan sir (https://www.facebook.com/bahourgopalan) at https://www.azhagi.com/free-support-for-azhagi-regarding-shri-gopalan-sir.php and briefly about him at https://azhagi.com/ack.php#gopalan-aiyaa

    • Note: Shri. Gopalan Padmavathy aiyaa is an ardent user of Azhagi apps and one of the group experts of https://www.facebook.com/groups/Azhagi (Azhagi Facebook Group). His help/support to you for Azhagi "is and will be" 100% free at all times. He does not expect anything at all in return from you, for any help provided to you related to Azhagi free apps. Thanks.

    • In case after reading all of the above, if you feel it will not be convenient/comfortable for you to contact Shri. Gopalan sir, then, kindly read all of the following.

    • As requested in azhagi.com/contacts, kindly please join and post your queries in Azhagi's Facebook 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 if you post your query anonymously OR message me from some sort of dummy facebook accounts without any details about you therein, I would not be able to respond.

    • 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 AAW. Because, some users may use that link itself to download and start using AAW 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 AAW. 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.

    • (^^)But, as some people do, if you write to me from some sort of dummy facebook accounts with absolutely no details about you therein, I would not be able to respond.

    • Alternatively, instead of posting in the group, you can opt to write in Azhagi's Community chat page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/Azhagi/community_chats) too. Details on Azhagi's community chat page are present in "https://www.azhagi.com/free-support-for-azhagi-regarding-shri-gopalan-sir.php" itself.

    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 AAW (Azhagi's Addins for MS Word)

    • Whatever minor (yet mightily irking ones) issues they have faced so far seem to be because of not effecting one "must-do-language-setting" in MS Word. It took quite some time for me to figure out this solution. Since even 2 of the users who were facing the minor issue could not find time to come out with any solution, I started to figure it out myself. Many hours got spent by me in finding out this solution. But when I found the solution finally, it was all joy, happiness and exuberance. It was all Beloved Baba'a Grace and Compassion finally. Sairam..... The solution is as follows (in MS Word 2007):

      1. 1. Click on 'Word Options' button.

        2. In the screen which gets shown, click on 'Language Settings' button in the right handside.

        3. You will get to see a screen with list of languages. Please see screenshot below for better understanding.

        4. In this screen, kindly ensure that 'Tamil' is selected and seen in the right-hand-side list and not in the left-hand-side list. Just enabling 'Tamil' is enough. No need to install it, as such.

        Azhagi's Addins for MS Word - Must-Do Language Setting

        5. Once you have ensured the above, exit that screen, then 'Word Options' screen and finally 'MS Word' itself. This is a MUST.

        6. Restart MS Word.

        Note: According to your version of MS Word, the steps above and the screen above may vary.

    • Well, apart from the above, existence of some AutoCorrect and AutoFormat options may also cause problems. So, I once again request you to untick ALL the Autocorrect and AutoFormat options which you feel or know already that they might interfere with the conversion process.

    • Even after effecting the language setting and doing the needful with regard to AutoCorrect/AutoFormat options, if you still face any issues during any of the conversions, 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.....

    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 AAW 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. But, in that 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 AAW 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 AAW.

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

    A very humble request - Kindly spread the news of AAW

    • Kindly spread the news of AAW, 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 AAW, it is only natural that 100s of others may have the need but not yet aware of AAW. So, kindly keep spreading the news of AAW. Thanks.

    • For a sample on how one can spread the news of AAW and/or AAE, here is one - a hearty facebook post by Shri. raguveeradayal sir. Thanks a TON to him.
    NOTE: As already written above in this same page, I have plans to include many more beneficial addins in the future. So, the addins you see in AAW, at any point of time, are not the only ones you will be seeing ever. In fact, in the existing addins itself, one may see enhancements now and then.

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

    Even if you do not have the need for AAW, if you think you have absolutely no hesitancy to try out AAW (after reading the "How to avail AAW?" 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 AAW 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 AAW or its features, you can still tell about AAW 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 AAW just to give me 'feedback on AAW' too (to whatever extent you can, on AAW's installation/usage/etc.) so that those users who have the need for AAW can get benefited, once AAW is slowly released to more and more users in future (in whatever ways I decide to release AAW, in times to come).
    NOTE-1: As already written above in this same page, I have plans to include many more beneficial addins in the future. So, the addins you see now are not the only ones you will be seeing ever. In fact, in the existing addins itself, you may see enhancements now and then.

    NOTE-2: If you, as an ardent user-wellwisher, have already availed and started using AAW, then, if and when possible, kindly test out ALL its features and give me your feedback on every aspect of AAW; give me suggestions for enhancements or new features; give me suggestions for new addins; etc. etc. 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.....


    Do all work as God’s work. Practice the attitude of offering fruits of all your work to God.
    - Beloved Baba

    ஆற்றும் அனைத்துப் பணிகளையும் இறைவனின் பணியாக ஆற்றுங்கள்; உங்கள் எல்லாப் பணிகளின் பலன்களையும் இறைவனின் மலர்ப்பாதங்களில் அர்ப்பணிக்கும் மனோபாவத்திலேயே எப்பொழுதும் செயல்படுங்கள்.

    All work is God’s; He inspires, He helps, He executes, He enjoys, and He is pleased.
    - Beloved Baba

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

    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.
