শব্দয় মোৰ একমাত্ৰ ৰত্ন, শব্দয় মোৰ কাপোৰ, শব্দয় মোক জীৱিত ৰখা একমাত্ৰ খাদ্য, শব্দয় মই বিলাই দিয়া একমাত্ৰ ধন
--  সন্ত তুকাৰাম*

ords are the only jewels I possess,
Words are the only clothes I wear,
Words are the only food that sustains my life,
Words are the only wealth I distribute among people. *

fuel logoWe got some suggestions to change the logo and so we worked hard on the logo. We worked on FUEL logo and Felix has tarnsformed several ideas in colour. The community then voted and the best one is selected as FUEL logo.

bookmark fuelThe central idea behined the FUEL logo is taken from a mythical story of creation of earth (Yoruba Tribe, Nigeria). In that story chameleon with big rolling eyes is given work of inspection of earth creation by the God. So eye of chamleon is here.

By using the logo we have created one bookmark. We distributed the bookmark in FUDCon 11, Mozasia, and other events.


termsTerminology results in JSON format

We have FUEL terminologies available in HTML format to be viewable from our web page.

However, in order to make it reachable to the wider audience, consumed by third party websites or projects, we decided to provide this terminology data in JSON format which is most widely used nowadays.

Anyone can access this json formatted data from the same URL by just adding .json at the end.
Complete list of Hindi FUEL entries are accessible from here.

If you want to grab the same result in json format, you need to access here.
