3D TAMIL CALLIGRAPHY SHINES AT .MY UA DAY ’2023

Dr. Velu Perumal

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) hosted Malaysia's Universal Acceptance Day, .MY UA DAY 2023, with the theme "Internet for All." This event coincided with the global celebration of Global Universal Acceptance Day on March 28, 2023.

Universal Acceptance (UA) ensures equal access to new Top-Level Domains (TLDs), Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs), and email addresses using Unicode characters. UA enables these domain names and email addresses to be accessible across the internet by all applications, devices, and systems, fostering a multilingual Internet ecosystem.

IDNs allow internet users to access domain names in multiple scripts and languages, promoting inclusivity for users of different languages. To raise awareness and promote UA, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, in collaboration with MYNIC Berhad and ICANN, organized .MY UA DAY 2023. This initiative aims to educate stakeholders about the benefits of UA and enables individuals to use the internet effectively in their preferred language and script, including Jawi, Chinese, and Tamil.

Approximately 2,110 registered users in Malaysia have embraced IDNs and email addresses in Jawi, Chinese, and Tamil scripts, according to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). To honor these scripts and enhance the celebration, the MCMC organized a calligraphy exhibition at the MCMC Center of Excellence in Cyberjaya. The exhibition showcased captivating calligraphy art in Jawi, Chinese, and Tamil, attracting enthusiastic visitors.

Ts Dr. Velu Perumal, a senior lecturer from the Department of Industrial Design, Faculty of Design and Architecture wowed visitors with a stunning 3D Tamil calligraphy exhibition that beautifully fused calligraphy art and industrial design. This captivating display received high praise. Additionally, the exhibition featured the remarkable nest table by Ts. Prof. Dr. Khairul Aidil Azlin Abd Rahman, further enhancing the event's artistic appeal.
