Can you please provide more detail than this? Are you saying that the month names we're using apply only to the Tamil calendar and not the Gregorian calendar? It looks like CLDR has different values listed: http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/browser/tags/release-21-0-2/common/main/ta.xml#L1064

Can you confirm that the values in CLDR are what you expect? Also, I'm not sure when to use the format context or the stand-alone context, so if you could specify which values should be listed that would be helpful. Of course, the most helpful thing you could do is to send a pull request with the corrected values.

Tamil month names used in calendar is not the translated instead you have used tamil months. It is different.

Use "ஆகஸ்டு 2012" instead of "ஆவணி 2012" in your demo: http://jqueryui.com/demos/datepicker/localization.html.

Thanks for the good work!

To clarify, you're saying we should use the stand-alone wide months from CLDR? What should we be using for monthNamesShort? Are the day names all correct?
