Kerala Media Academy summit on self-reliant publishing from today.

Yesterday we met with Fahad Al Zaidi from Oman (who is inaugurating the event) and shared each other' experience on wide variety of topics including his work on adding Indian language support in #scribus (through his work on adding Arabic support), #FreeSoftware activities in #Oman and #India (especially in #Kerala). We had dinner together and have him validate if #Kunafa (sweet) was authentic :)

Excellent explanation of Freedom to modify the software. They found the software #Scribus but it did not support #Arabic. They studied how the software works and added Arabic support. They shared their improvement so everyone including #Malayalam and other Indian languages. #FreeSoftware. Their work is now a part of scribus software.
