One kind and humble request:
If possible, please join Quora, if not already joined. Then, if at all you can , kindly read one or more of the following Quora answers (serving as tutorials on the various aspects of Azhagi apps) and spread the news of these answers in whatever possible ways you feel like, in whichever different manners you can, so that many more of the society get benefited, in much the same way you have got benefited immensely so far. Since you are a 'day in and day out' beneficiary of Azhagi, as a mark of gratitude (not to me but to Azhagi apps), you may do the above, so that many more of the society get benefited. The more answers you spread, more the benefit to the society. In this regard, I have an important NOTE at the end of this page. Please do read it.

Important info - 1: In the various options (Upvote, 'Share in Facebook', 'Share in Quora', 'Share in Twitter', 'Comment', etc.) available for you to spread the news of any Quora answer, whenever you opt to write anything (while commenting/sharing/etc.), please take care to write only in Tamil in Tamil Quora, only in English in English Quora, only in Hindi in Hindi Quora and so on. I am informing you this based on my understanding of Quora's Policies in this regard. This info holds good if you decide to write your own 'answers' in Quora too.

Important info - 2:
  • Please read my societal request at and do your level best to answer as many Quora questions (related to Indic computing) as possible so that many more of the society get benefited.

    Well, you can of course opt to spread the answers on other Indic software too, since every other useful Indic software is needed for our society. That's why, I myself have listed & written about a whole lot of other Indic software at my indic.html page.

    But, unlike in the case of many of the other Indic software, in the case of Azhagi, eventhough lakhs of people are using it already, still there are lakhs of people who are still unaware** of Azhagi apps' many inbuilt beneficial features## though they are very much in need of those features. Hence, my "SPECIFIC" request at the top of this page to spread the answers on Azhagi apps so that many more get to read all the beneficial features of Azhagi apps and get benefited. As a beneficiary of apps like Azhagi, the more answers you spread, more the benefit to the society. The society will remain thankful to you ever.

    (**) This is because unlike the manufacturers/authors of many of the other Indic software, I do not reach out to the media (for various reasons) since 2006 or so; I am not in a position (because of my painful and chronic health problems since 1987 or so) to explain or show live demos of my apps in s/w training sessions, software expositions, software exhibitions and book fairs (where lakhs of people visit and gather); etc. In any case, I am committed to Azhagi. Since many years, I have striven my best to not to watch TV, not to see movies, not to read newspapers, etc. I rarely go out of my home itself. My Motto is to spend as much time as I can on Azhagi and Azhagi alone, until I am destined to. You can read this kind and humhle request of mine too, act accordingly and help me and the society. Thanks.

    You are a beneficiary
    You are a beneficiary, day in and day out, of a language software like 'Azhagi', even if you do not have any need to use it (and thus never used it so far and do not intend to use it in future too). If you wish to know how, click here. Hence, this page, so that as a mark of gratitude (not to me but to apps like Azhagi), you can help spread their news, so that many more of the society get benefited.
