It is a commendable effort on the part of Hindu to enable Tamils to have access to editorials in tamil. If the Hindu brings out its Tamil edition of daily that would be great service for the Tamils who are starving for impartial news paper in Tamilnadu.

I long back sent my elaborate views/congratulatory remarks in Tamil scripts which was not accepted by this website. After all, the whole exercise is by,for and to the Tamil knowing community! The focus is on the vernacular delivery and if the response is also in the same, it will only be appropriate. What could be the better objective for the entire effort? The BBC website deals with individual languages in their respective script itself.What happens if a 'poor in English' person comes out with good points,expressed in a better way, in his vernacular? Will the editorial board spare a thought to address my view/doubt?

I am Tamil-an ,and i am more comfortable with Tamil than English. At the same time i long for quality news irrespective of language so i struck to The Hindu. To me The Hindu is my native newspaper and this is further strengthened by Tamil Podcast. Now English language will not be barrier for my other fellow Tamil-ans who are longing for quality news. The Hindu will be remembered for its contribution to the Tamil society progress. Let this get extended to other Dravidian language.

For the first time I listened to the editorial. I appreciate the quality and the neutrality of the reader. She has very sweet voice. I applaud the professionalism that The Hindu exhibits in any media.

The voice-over is a bit too dramatic - especially when describing the
scene of the crime. Maintain a professional distance from the subject,

Way to go Hindu! The vernacular press was lacking editorial quality and this will provide that. Ramp-up quicker. We have enough sources for English language news. Please PLEASE focus on vernacular languages and provide your gold standard there. Lets learn to respect our own languages.

Highly innovative. No newspaper would have even imagined one. Good Tamil employed and pronunciation excellent. Contents of editorials always sensible. Let this initiative lead to video presentations as well. Also publication of a Tamil Daily of Hindu's standard is the expectation of Tamil readers. CONGRATS.

As someone residing in the UK in an area where no tamil is spoken, I have the chance to hear it at least once a day. I am certain that there are many others like myself across the globe who will be just as appreciative. Thank you.

Dear Sir: I have listned the Tamil Audio version of Gujarat Verdict as 'Neethi Mandra Thirppukalil oru milekal'; I congradulate The Hindu for such innovative additives in the press rather than routines.
