Release of the font First Time, Second Time and This time also has not only
helped people with penchant for writing, but it has also helped people make
other people think about why technological matter like fonts and their
ownership and licenses, their vernacularizarion is a matter of importance to
all people Breathing Marathi, Living Marathi and also Consuming Marathi
Our many Thanks to Yogini Jogalekar and also to people having family name as
Jogalekar and those lucky ones having first name as Yogini... that goes with
even saying... May this light of wisdom take us through the times when people
need to breath in their mother tongue and breath out in their mother tongue...

2 Err is Human, Forgive Divine...!
