===Add proper Indic / Malayalam rendering to Mapnik===
Mapnik is a free mapping toolkit, written in C++. One of it's major users is OpenStreetMap. If you check OpenStreetMap, you can see that Languages like Russian, Arabic, Persian, Chinese etc are rendered in it (Not sure whether they are properly rendered or not). The lack of proper Indic support is the major reason for the absence of Malayalam.
