It would be interesting if traffic stats for google news tamil is available..

I also being native of Tamil Nadu state, the Indian state which speaks Tamil, I know many people who use Internet know english

just because one site is available in tamil, no one who does not know english but knows tamil will buy a computer because tamil is now google news

Great news. Thanks Philip for bringing this to our notice. I only wish Google would enable Tamil typing in the search box.
