#Tamil does #Wikidata

In an embarrassment of riches; the Tamil Wikipedia is the third Wikipedia complementing its search with the Wikidata search functionality.

There is only one snag; I try to understand if it works properly and I don't. I search for "தமிழ்" it is the autonym for the Tamil language. I should be able to find it and I do not get the expected results ... I do when I search for "Tamil"..

To make it even more complicated, I do not find "தமிழ்" either on Wikidata itself. Not even when I change the language to Tamil.

I am really happy, and I trust that it will be all-right eventually. The one question I have is where is the problem.
