The News Minute | January 27, 2015 | 09.50 am IST The interest towards ‘Mathorupagan’, Perumal Murugan’s book which created controversy has peaked after all the debate concerning its contents. Writer Perumal Murugan had publicly requested all his publishers to remove all copies of the controversial book ‘Mathorupagan’ along with his other works from public circulation. However, efforts have been made to circulate copies of the book in other formats - like PDF and other digital formats, reported The Hindu. Readers had even scanned the book and shared it on different online forums like Facebook and Twitter. There were also requests from visually-impaired readers to convert the PDF files into Microsoft documents to enable them to convert the text into speech, said the report. While T Shrinivasan formatted the book’s content to fit Kindle and iPad tablet viewing, another member of the Tamil software community Manjoor Raja converted the move in Tamil Unicode format.
