Welcome to a leisurely world in the Minambalam !
Vannakkam! Pull that reclining chair (Saivu Natkali) or lounge leaning on
those stone pillars. Who ever you are, be our guest (a Virundhali, an
Adhti). Once upon a time there was space in the mind without pressures of
modern living crowding the brain. Articles try to bridge the gap between contemporary
world, and interior landscape of my ancestors, with a smooth transit into the real world.

If these themes do not interest you, rest for a
while and pass on,that is as it should be. Though we may speak in different tongues,and
appear to have diverse themes but our underlying untold stories are similar.
Excerpt from "about the author..":
"These pages are destined to roam in the cyberspace, till some programmer by
accident, by design or in a fit of temporary insanity pulls the plug out and mixes all the
carefully arranged 0 and 1 resulting in a merciful release. Therefore make
haste before the Ambalam moves into oblivion. In the mean time while my random
thoughts haunts the nooks and caverns of cyber space, your comments would be
encouraging. If you are a (long lost) friend or a potential new
one contact me". firstname.lastname@example.org

developer of the Mylai font. Inspite of development of other fonts, Mylai remains an
important tool. The significant original works of e-library are in Mylai and are
unlikely to be superceded by other fonts.
