Roy Chakma ,

The best Buddhist scriptural app has ever created upto date!

The best Buddhist scriptural app I have ever seen! And I am so thrilled and proud that my Chakma language is added for language option. I kindly request to the developers, please! If you could, add Chakma script for the Pali mula tipitaka, atthakatha, tika too. It will be a great honor for Chakma Buddhist people as well as a huge inspiration and motivation for the young Chakma people to learn Buddhism and Chakma script. I am now promoting this app and tell all the Chakma people that our Chakma language and scripture are being introduced internationally and therefore must learn and improve Chakma literature too.
