My Article In Infokairali Magazine on Localization

About Lately, I've been volunteering for Swathanthra Malayalam Project (SMC). I took up the initiative in revamping KDE localization which was dorminant for many years.

Varnam, An Editor To Easily Type Malayalam & Other Indian Languages

Today, I'm introducing Varnam Editor, an easy software for you to write Malayalam and other Indian languages. It is easily installable for GNU/Linux distros like Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, Archlinux etc. Technically, it's an editor for transliterating Indian languages. Varnam Editor uses an existing library called Varnam and makes it easy to install & use. Transliteration From Wikipedia : Transliteration is a type of conversion of a text from one script to another that involves swapping letters (thus trans- + liter-) in predictable ways (such as α → a, д → d, χ → ch, ն → n or æ → ae).

Curse Words

I have an interesting story of how I learnt & used a curse word. Myru In Malayalam, a main curse word is "myru" which translates to "pubic hair". In Tamil, it simply means "hair". You can just go to a barber shop and say "annaa, cut my myru", but in Malayalam this sentence is hilarious 🤣. When you refer the word to someone, it becomes "myre". It's like calling someone bro, but in the worst way possible :
