You don’t have to know Tamil Typewriting nor do you have to have special software or App installed on your device.
There are a number of on-line editors where you can type in English and get the Tamil words. Generally all of them follow a simple method called Transliteration. You just spell your tamil words in English.
For example, if you want to type “அன்பு” you type “anbu”.
For “ஆசை”, you can type either “Asai” or “aasai”
Various Tamil letters and the corresponding english alphabet that you have to type are as under.

Many years ago, we used to meet on the Second Sunday of the month to listen to Aiya’s (Dr. Poongavanam) thoughts on various subjects and to share mutual experiences.
The recordings of those events are uploaded here. Since these meetings were conducted in open halls, the quality of the recordings may not be at acceptable level. If any of you can help us improve the quality by some kind of audio processing software, please come forward.
We have provided both listening and download links for all the recordings. In many cases, the full discussion has been split into appropriate parts to go directly to topics of interest.
