Google News in Tamil

Are you one of those who fear that you will start forgetting Tamil script sooner or later?
Are you one of those who want a one-stop website to know everything happening in the Tamil World?
Are you one of those who love Tamil?

Then Google has come up with a great gift for you.. Yeah.. Google News is now available in Tamil... I still find Google News in English to be the only place where you get to know the latest and important news. And I am happy that Google News has come out with a version in Tamil..

Here is the excerpt from Google News Blog
"It's not every day that you get to launch a product in a more than 2,000-year-old language spoken by more than 70 million people. That's why we're excited to tell you that Google News is now available in Tamil. Tamil is one of the most widely-spoken languages in India, which is no mean feat considering that there are 22 official languages here."
Thank You! Google News Team!

And start reading Google News in Tamil

Gold Finally!!!

An Olympic Gold after a longggggggggggg gap of 28 years... That too in an individual event.. Yahoo!!! Something that India has never achieved in its history.. Yipee... This was my initial reaction when the news was shared by one of my office colleagues..

But with the excitement, there was also a feeling of relief... A relief that the future sportsperson of India would not have to carry the burden of history... A relief that Indians have the ability to win gold in the Olympics... A relief that Indians could compete with the best and still win... Way to Go! Bindra....

Thankfully this historic event has brought me out of the blogging slumber... Hope I don't go back to my slumber again...
