And about Santhosh Thottingal,

He is one of the most active developer working on Indian language
technologies. He is the main author and inspiration behind ambitious
silpa project (http://smc.org.in/silpa/) - which aims to bring all
Indian language application under one roof. Some of these include
    * Guess Language
    * Encoding Converter
    * Approximate Search
    * Sort
    * Spellcheck
    * Dictionary
    * Transliterate
    * Hyphenation
    * Syllabalize
    * N-Gram
    * Random Quote
    * Indic Soundex
    * Character Details
    * Katapayadi Numbers
    * Webfonts

Currently most of these projects have support for Malayalam. Some of
them have support for Tamil and Kannada. He is actively looking for
more developers to join his team to add support to Marathi, Hindi and
the rest of Indian languages. He is also maintainer of Dhvani Indian
language text to speech system, aspell spell checking dictionaries,
hyphenation support ... and many more. He is in Pune on a shot visit
and it would be a great opportunity to learn from him.

You have to keep reminding your government that you don't get your
rights from them; you give them permission to rule, only so long as
they follow the rules: laws and constitution.
