I was using Thudam, Nazhi, Edangazhi, para etc. during my schoodays. But I find it
difficult to type them in Malayalam and edit the Malayalam Wiki.

Subject: [Wikiml-l] Wikiproject on Measurement Systems of Kerala
First of all, apologies for English. I am short of time and resources to get to somewhere
that I can type/read Malayalam.
It would be great if some one could initiate a project to bring the traditional measuring
systems of our state into Wiki. This is a start and some hints towards expanding would be
towards Thola, Nazhi, idangazhi, Kol, etc etc. if some one can fish out an Enchuvadi (I
hope we still get it there), that may have some of it. It may be worth while to ask our
grand parents, they will have explanations as well. This is something that is being
forgotten and we need to preserve the knowledge for our own sake.
Traditional carpentry tools and measurements should also be covered in this.
