Dear All,
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.

Dear fellows,

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. 

Comments welcome.

miles to go before i sleep and 
lines to go before I press sleep

completion date = (start date + ((estimated effort x 3.1415926) / resources) + ((total coffee breaks x 0.25) / 24)) + Effort in meetings
