hi
it is absolutely essential that we learn our mother tongue and our customs. we should also learn Esperanto to communicate with other people whose language is different from our mother tongue. by this way, we will retain our identity and still part of the global village. we will need to learn only two languages to communicate with the whole world and the world will be a better place to live.
good luck.

Nam,
Who the devil in this world wants these Malayalam digits. Malayalam
digits are an unwanted addition to the already confused world. None
should learn it or promote it. The language is alright , not the
digits. Even the Arabs are slowly realizing their folly and follow
normal digits. While they write text from right to left they are at a
loss as to how the digits are written.
One look at the malayalam digits, I left like throwing up. Please
prevent it from bing propagated.
Best regards
Job

What changes and why?

It is a pity that Malayalis themselves are ignorant of their own
numerical system.
Some people will gaze at the calendar published by one well known Naturopathy
Centere. But they have done it for their commercial ends. Different matter.

When I was moving around as a rough or tough rebel, I used to write these
numerals. But nobody took it serious.

The solemn prayer is this Malayalam language be saved for it's existence
for reasons well known to the world because of Malayalis themselves.
We will speak aloud the Globalisation is taking it's lead to kill
languages of other
countries, and the regional or sublatern languages. It is true with
Tamil or Bengali
speaking people. But there is no scope of the onslaught of Globalisation on
Malayalam, because Malayalis themselves will take up the suicidor's role!
