Unicode got it wrong.
The rule is, science/Grammar states that you need near voiceless vowels.
But the approach taken by conjunct theory is that it is more user friendly.
Howerver, there is only x and K+sh and there is no such thing as conjunct
ksh in Tamil. Unicode got it wrong for reasons that I do not want to discuss
here. It is a blatent disregard for Tamil Grammar and Seience.
