This is something that I've been using for quiet sometime, and realized how much this could potentially shrink the world. Yes, its a software from Baraha (the makers of free Indian Language Software), thats called BarahaIME. Its a really cool and simple piece of software that, when run on your computer, can be used to type Indian language Unicode text directly into applications such as Internet Explorer, MS Word, or any other IM applications like Sametime, Yahoo Messenger, etc.
I would recommend readers to use this software when you are chatting with your family and friends who are living at distant places across mountains and oceans. This helps you use words in any (almost!) Indian language (or your mothertongue), that makes you feel closer even when communicating from a place miles and miles away.
It currently supports Kannada, Tamil, Hindi, Marathi, Sanskrit, Telugu, Malayalam, Gujarati, Gurumukhi, Bengali, Assamese, Manipuri and Oriya !!
