The world we live in is shaped by prominent minds who worked toward the betterment of humanity. Our present reality is created by the actions of the people who lived before us. The actions of us, the present, will shape the prospective way of humankind.

Every human being is unique and is gifted with potential of their own. It is up to each of them to forge their potential into greatness. Greatness arises when we live our life towards a vision rather than surviving. Greatness neither has limits nor bias. Greatness can be forged by anyone, anywhere.

In life, failure or success doesn’t matter. The journey we travel and the inspiration we create are what matter the most. Struggles and hardships are parts of life, it’s what make life much more interesting.

When People hit a wall, they see three options: go around it, climb over it, or tunnel under. Changemakers do the same, but if all three do not work, they blow up the damn wall.

Failure is the bedrock of success; it lays the foundation for what comes forth. Success or failure is an abstract concept, what we see as failure is the success of many people alike what we see as success is taken for failure by many people. Life is a journey; success is determined when we journey enough to the fullest. We should not stop when laurels arrive, it is the vision that counts not the achievement. The value of one’s life is coined by history through the vision of their life.

All we need is a single light bulb moment.

Science is about “why”. But Innovation is not about “why”, it’s about “why not?” Science allows understanding of everything but innovation drives us beyond the boundaries of reality.

Innovation is everywhere; challenging the boundaries of reality is what innovation is, which brings greatness within. The more powerful vision takes longer to forge greatness. Greatness with a vision is a powerful companion. Only with this elegant combination, humanity can do wonders.


Tenith has been traveling around the world to perform his professional and social responsibilities from a very young age. He started to travel at the age of 4 to take part in various scientific and academic events that happened around the surrounding cities and his international journey started a decade later. Mostly he travels for his scientific contributions and social activism.

The Tamil Numerical Evolution Initiative is a research initiative set forth to act as the initial guidelines for linguistic experts and scholars to create a clear distinction between language characters and numerals that is efficient for universal digital usage, hence the numerals can be better deployed and utilized on various functions. In general, the Tamil language typeset is widely used yet it is hard to find the usage of Tamil numerals due to their similarities with the characters.

The guidelines submitted are taken into consideration for the appropriate measures and pave solution to this profound issue, addressing both general and technical usages. The initiative holds a vital part in the coexistence of the Tamil language numerals and characters, evolving the Tamil numerals vernacular, ensuring a significant advancement in day-to-day public usage, and digital accessibility.
