My first hardware project ! Piano Stairs

Made with Raspberry Pi and ultrasonic sensors. It's not perfect(sync), but works alright (if you're lucky enough).

Here's me stress testing it :P

Found fellow college mates practising Thiruvathirakkali (തിരുവാതിരകളി) with the song lyrics written in Manglish.

These peeps are one of the reasons why I developed Manglish app.

It was when I joined college I realized, there are a lot of malayalees who can't read Malayalam.

Something I wrote when I was 14 and religious.

"GOD is Open Source" : subinsb.com/god-open-source/

Everything's a fork of a fork of a fork

I just realized now that even the words I use to call my father and mother has Syriac origin :

Aba => Appa => Father
Emma => Amma => Mother
Malakha => Angel
Mamoditha => Mamodisa => Baptism

Similar to Arabimalayalam, there is also "Suriyani Malayalam" which uses Syriac script to write Malayalam. It originated among Saint Thomas Christians of Kerala, but is not widely used nowadays. Like Arabimalayalam, new letters to accomodate Malayalam phonemes were created.

In the internet age, Latin script is used to write Malayalam (aka Manglish). English can't render all the phonemes of Malayalam, so letters are pronounced differently according to context. "enna" can be both എന്നാ and എണ്ണ.

There are christian prayer books written in Manglish !

Since 5AD, Arabic script was used to write Malayalam. This was called "Arabimalayalam" and is still used in Kerala. The 28 Arabic letters couldn't render 53 phonemes of Malayalam, so new letters were created for it !

"Muhyadheen Mala" is the first book written in Arabimalayalam

I just went through the entire day without saying (even in mind) the word "myru".

But, then I accidentally booted into Windows.

Myru

Why is there a temple named "Thalakkotukara" in the heart of Kunnamkulam ?
The place Thalakkotukara is 15kms away from kkm and there's no other place named Thalakkotukara in kkm.

But why, but why, but why ?

I see touchscreen, I draw.

ടച്ച് കണ്ടാൽ, അതിന്മേൽ കുത്തിവരയ്ക്കൽ നിർബന്ധാ 😋

Touchscreen, WiFi and everything worked out of the box in this Thinkpad on Linux Mint 19 live boot.
