It was really heartening to see you code for the cause of Tamil, last
Saturday. Two years back, while taking up translations work (than coding as
priority), thought there are lot of techies around and there will be enough
number of  programmers coming forward to code and contribute for Tamil after
seeing discussions in mailing lists around.

That turned out to be a myth. At times used to feel, even deaf and dumb
(with due respect to them) used to get more encouragement and contributions
than people knowing to read, write and communicate effectively in Tamil

Hats off to you & all programmers who code for the cause of their respective
languages & society. Hope more people join the efforts and myth becomes
