Thanks for all your wishes for the ‘kaniyam‘ e-magazine.

Wishes for all the authors who brings the technical knowledge in Tamil
to all the tamil community.

Typing in Tamil is so tough, if you you don’t have the typewriter

training. Still, the authors spend various tools and many hours to
serve the tamil to take it to the next generation through the

Tamil Wikipedia Contest, completed on Feb 29, 2012. We expected 100

contributors and 3000 media files. For our surprise, we received 300
contributors and 15217 media files. Check the files here.

Thanks for all the participants. This expresses the great victory of
Tamil Wikipedia community.
