    Tamil fractions symbols are many,
    and they have individual names also. An example list for
    Tamil fractions:

    Similar situation exists for Malayalam.
    Malayalam fractions. An example:
    (see page 3 for fractions' examples).

    These fractions are *not* used in modern Tamil
    or Malayalam printing as the decimal system with Hindu-Arabic
    numerals is used in schools.

    As there are many fractions in both languages,
    it will be good, if at all they are encoded,
    they are placed in different block(s).
