One of earlier dreams on digitalization of Siddha literature achieved!

post-edit 1 comments
I was an internee in GSMC, Palayamkottai 6 years ago. 

I was having a dream to digitize all literatures related to siddha medicine. 

I've started with digitizing books from our college library with the book Theraiyar kappiyam (தேரையர் காப்பியம்). 

I completed my first book successfully and started to train my Juniors the same with support from the Principal of the college and NSS team.

Then several books were digitized by the team. 

I joined PG in National Institute of Siddha, Chennai. Everything changed
and I was concentrating in my PG thesis and blogging, photography, etc. Meanwhile I presented a paper in a conference (2007) regarding digitalizing siddha literature. for that presentation I took a screenshot in google search which is shown below.

With this screen shot I wanted to show the people that digitized siddha litereature can be searchable and can be read online.

Now I have taken a screenshot from google search for the term theraiyar kappiyam and it shows in the first position the source portal archive.org where the book Theraiyar kappiyam is available online and  our blog siddhadreams in second position.

So now one of my greatest dreams become true! Let us join hands to make true all our dreams on siddha medicine!
B'cause this dream is not only mine it's everyone's!
