TN Budget trivia


Political parties do things in style, and the TN Budget of 2007-2008 was no exception.  Among other things, I found the last line of the budget speech interesting.  Along with the date in English (23 March 2007), it had a tamil date as Panguni-9, Thiruvalluvar Aandu 2038.  Till I read this I did not realise that there is something called Thiruvalluvar aandu – a good discovery from this year’s budget!
