Implemented a "Play with Random People" feature to Vett, The Dots & Boxes online game : vett.space

What started as a hackathon project from @MLHacks Hack-at-Home comes to a finished end 23 days later 🎉

Learnt @vuejs, @WebTorrentApp & more along with @athulcajay

Sorry aripraavu, I meant these evil "angaadikkuruvi" beings. Apparently they are are all over the world 🤦‍♂.

Their German cousins as seen in the video are also loud, but not as much as ours.

The town looked very post-apocalyptic. State highway 69 used to be one of the busiest roads in Kerala.

I noticed a foreshadowing in a Gov. ad : "കേരളം മാറുന്നു, ജീവിതങ്ങളും...".

Will add these photos to Wikimedia commons.

But then I realized this site is basically boasting about "unique" taste of the rich and other maangatholi so that those suckers will pay for the "elite" package.

This is a good business. Thinking of such startups. How'bout Tinder for families ? Let parents take care of swipes

There is a matrimony site for the rich.

For rich families to find and marry other rich families cause their taste is very "unique" eh.

While other matrimony sites discriminates on caste, this one does with class.

Amma played the game in a very strategic, unique way than anyone else I've played it with. Probably cause of her experience with it than I have.

I wonder how this game became universal such that Malayalam, Tamil and many langs has its own unique name for it !

Discovered this account which posts daily birthday reminders of the persecuted in & around WW2.

Casuality numbers are one thing, but each of those numbers represent a life, a life who had dreams, a life who had worries, a life who wanted to cherish the life they had in them...

I read about the eyewitness account about a mooppan who came down the forests of Wayanad for the first time in his long life, saw the vast sea and beach and was just amazed that such a place exist !!

What a feeling it would be to see the face of a person who discovers the sea !

It's this cute, very convincing 14 year old kid to his 700K+ subs

Read the autobiography of Rajan's father. It's just sad...

Rajan's mother was never informed of her son's death. Her mental health had already started deteriorating even before Rajan's disappearance. To not even be able to see the body, to not have a closure, that's more painful

NITC's annual Ragam fest is organized in memory of Rajan.

This one's my favorite Ragam Trailer, 2014 : youtube.com/watch?v=1GmHRscNl6

Rajan's body was never found. All were acquitted due to lack of evidence.

Rajan's father wrote a biography which won a Kerala Sahitya Akademi award

Came across shijualex.in. This guy is doing a great work ! He digitizes old Malayalam books, papers he find and release it on Internet Archive !!

He also Facebook posts interesting stuff.

There are many unique things on his site. I found the only good doc on Malayalam numerals from there (which I added to Wikipedia later) : shijualex.in/malayalam-numeral

This writing is by Gundert of caste statistics (1850s) in Thalipparambu Taluk.

70 castes !! In the order of their social hierarchy !

I made a simple tool to encode/decode Hindu-Arabic numerals to/from Malayalam numerals : demos.subinsb.com/malayakkam

It's written in Thengascript i.e the source code is in Malayalam !

It's my first program written in Malayalam :)

Our college's been using @moodle@twitter.com and @bigbluebutton@twitter.com for taking online classes for the past 2 weeks. They work really good !

And both are Open Source software !

Kudos to the developers for making this wonderful piece of software ! 🎉
