*Very well put Dr. Kalyan. I agree with this statement wholeheartedly.
I'm not as enthusiastic as Mani here.
I honestly feel there was VERY LITTLE consideration
given to ideas or discussions.
Has ANYONE answered why ksha has to be
included ( except Muthu's single brief response )?
Has ANYONE explained why we need tamil numerals 10, 100, 1000
or why tamil fractions were not included. I think there is
too much arbitrariness and ideas are not discussed much
In short I'm not happy at all with version 1.4. I'll post
I appreciate the tremendous effort Kalyan and Muthu had devoted,
but I can not agree that there was 'due consideration' given.

*All for the love of the language. And I would like to see more volunteer

I want to volunteer, but I need to know more about
the timeframe. I asked for deadlines a long time ago
but no one replied.
