I want a Marathi Search Engine … wait there is one

I was thinking the other day that how nice it would be if I can search on the web with Marathi input. I write some blogs in Marathi, some poems, stories etc. Won’t it be nice if my aunt can search for my name in Marathi or the name of my poem in Marathi? Then I discovered that google already has such a facility.

So how do you search in Google in Marathi?

There are three steps

1. Go to http://www.google.co.in/intl/mr/

2. Use an input method editor to input search text in Marathi. I used Baraha. I hope all the input method editors will work.

3. Click the button “Google शोध”.

E.g. I searched for me as “सुमोद” in this page and the results came up as

http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=mr&q=%E0%A4%B8%E0%A5%81%E0%A4%AE%E0%A5%8B%E0%A4%A6&btnG=Google+%E0%A4%B6%E0%A5%8B%E0%A4%A7&meta=&aq=f&oq=

You will not see the text here because the Marathi text was in unicode and that could not get pasted here.
