The invitation for today’s get-together also carries a brief profile about Muthu Nedumaran which reads as follows:

Muthu Nedumaran, Founder & CEO, MurasuSystems Sdn Bhd

“Muthu Nedumaran, from Malaysia, has been working on input methods and fonts for over thirty years.

He built the Sangam family of Indic and Indo-Chinese fonts, which are now part of iOS, Mac OS, and HTC’s Android devices. His keyboards for Tamil text input were included in Mac OS 10.4.

HTC’s Sense UI for Android includes his input methods for all Indic and some Indo-Chinese languages.

Muthu wrote his first transliterated input method in 1993 for Tamil as a keyboard hook for Windows called ‘Murasu Anjal’. Prior to this, people where just using the Latin script to exchanges email messages in Tamil. Since then, many others have also implemented Anjal in various operating systems. It has become the most widely used method for Tamil input across computers and mobile devices today.”
