Spread the news, Please
    If at all your time/interest/mood/situation permits, kindly choose to do, on a voluntary basis, one or more of all that I have listed below, plus every other extra possible act you can think of, for creating awareness for all the software which help one for Tamil/Indian/World language computing. I have provided a list of very many useful Indic software at

    In my past 20 years' experience (since 1999, as author of 'Azhagi' software), I have seen that though there are lakhs of users for Azhagi free apps, yet still there are 1000s and 1000s who are still not aware of 'language software and tools' in general, though they are very much in need of the same, for societally beneficial activities. Hence, your endeavour (in a totally non-obligatory manner) in spreading the news of Azhagi, Azhagi+ and all software of their kind would immensely benefit the global society.

You are a beneficiary, day in and day out
    I have observed that most people who do not use language software like 'Azhagi' do not take time to realise the 'extent and depth' to which language software are benefiting them (even if they themselves are not using such software) and the society, day in and day out.

    This is one of the reasons why people in general do not spread the news of language software like 'Azhagi', resulting in the lack of awareness of language software amongst those who very much need them. Yes, there are lakhs of people already using Azhagi and getting self-benefited (in various ways, incl. earning money too), in addition to helping the society. But, world is large. There are atill 1000s and 1000s who are not yet aware of Azhagi and/or its useful unique/special features, though they are in need of them.

    Many who are not using language software like 'Azhagi' are still, all the time, reaping the benefits of language software like 'Azhagi' in an extremely large manner but remaining completely unaware of the same. For them to realise the same, I request them to take time to reflect very deeply upon the umpteen walks of life in which language software are used in providing contents in one's local language (Tamil, Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, etc.) resulting in immense benefit to the society:

    • right from the newspapers read in the morning,

    • to the divine slokas recited,

    • to the devotional songs heard,

    • to the spiritual stories read in Whatsapp,

    • to the inspiring quotes read in Facebook or Twitter,

    • to the spirited poems of poet Bharathi or others read in blogs,

    • to the emboldening film songs read in web sites,

    • to the cheerful jokes read in emails,

    • to the motivational books published,

    • to the huge translation works done,

    • to the informative videos viewed in YouTube,

    • to the college project materials done,

    • to the doctoral theses written,

    • to the variety of reading manuals readied in a variety of organisations,

    • to the various documents/agreements/deeds typed in dtp centers,

    • to the case files prepared in courts,

    • to the status reports generated in police stations,

    • to the umpteen RTI applications drafted,

    • to the awareness notices circulated,

    • to the school educational books printed,

    • to the banners put up in temples/institutions/exhibitions,

    • to the spiritual serials seen,

    • to the divine works published,

    • and so on and so on and so on and so on and so on.

    Hence, my very humble request is for my brothers/sisters to kindly consider doing "regularly" their 'little part' in spreading the news of language software also. In relation to my above request, I just share hereunder two (just two) out of the 100s of messages I receive from users, highlighting how language software benefit the society immensely:

    Thanks for all you have done to the society. Because of Azhagi, we are now at ease in communicating with farmers. It helped us a lot to transfer technical knowledge in English to Tamil with ease. Your work is commendable as we see more farmers understand and move closer towards technology if it is communicated in their language.
    - Jeypee Farm

    So, as you can see, even in the food you eat - every day of your life, language software play a crucial part. Thus, you can realise how even if you are not using Azhagi and if you do not have the need to use Azhagi ever after, still you are getting benefited by it both directly and indirectly.

    For yet another instance, please read maha-periyavaa.html to understand how Azhagi+ not only gives you healthy food for your body but it gives you nourishing food for your your mind and spirit as well (which you might have never realised, till this day).

    Actually, in this world and universe, everything is interconnected. One cannot ignore one beneficial thing for the other. Is it not? So, at least now, especially if you are already an user of Azhagi (that too for years together), if at all possible, if you wish to, then kindly choose to do, on a voluntary basis, one or more of all that I have listed below, plus every other extra possible act you can think of, for creating awareness for all the software (esp. the freeware) which help one for Tamil/Indian/World language computing, so that many more of the society (which includes you too) get benefited.

    Please note well that even now I am not telling that "you should". I am only saying "if at all possible", "if you wish to". :) Hope you got that right.

    For all that you have done in this regard already, thanks a lot. Hoping for more though, considering the vastitude of benefit to the society via language software. Please read this very humble request of mine, in this regard, and act accordingly.]
