    Zero digit in all literary Indian languages
    have deep connection with European zero digit
    "Greek omicron". ( (a) The logic of unity :
    the discovery of zero and emptiness in
    Praj˝aparamita thought by H. Matsuo, SUNY, 1987
    (b) The nothing that is : a natural history of zero by
    R. Kaplan, OUP, 2000 ).

    Take a look at zero in Indian languages
    (Of course, Tamil zero needs to be added here).

    Malayalam zero is exactly the same as
    Tamil zero or Hindi zero.
    But in unicode Malayalam codechart,
    0D66 defines a symbol as malayalam zero.
    Actually, it is a symbol for "1/2", not Zero.

    The error in the malayalam zero sign
    needs to be corrected. Malayalam zero
    sign correction is not found in pipeline
    chart either.
