Once, Prof. Aklujkar wrote that for World-Wide Web,
the Sanskrit term can be: viSva-vyApI-vitAnam (VVV).
In Tamil, I suggest now: valaya-vaLai-valai (VVV)
valaya-vaLai-valai is from valayam vaLaikkum valaiyam.
valayam = ring, lake, sea, *world*
vaLaikkum = encompassing, encircling
valaiyam (or valai) = net, web.
Note that 'vaLai valai' is a vin2ait tokai; the verb 'vaLai'
does not indicate tense. I don't know what it is called in
sanskrit or english.
Once Prof. BhK said he prefers w to v for tamil 'v'.
Then, valaya-vaLai valai (VVV) becomes WWW.
The cuckoo even on WWW/VVV senses that it
is vasantam/iLavEn2il. When we simplify to essentials,
India was born when Sanskrit kOkilam and Tamil kuyil met each other.
nOtaka irum kuyil aalum arO!
- kalittokai (an ancient tamil sangam text).
