Varnam has knowledge about lot of words. This idea proposes a method to use these words and provide suggestions for other input systems. Basically, in Varnam, the API call will be something like,

```c
varnam_get_suggestions (handle, "भारत");
```

This will fetch all the suggestions which has the given prefix.

`varnam_get_suggestions` needs to keep track of the previous words and use [n-gram](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N-gram) based dataset to filter the results. This should also learn the words back into the word corpus that varnam is using. Filtering suggestions won't be just a prefix search, but it will have knowledge about how text can be written in the target language and provide smart filtering. Searching in a large corpus and providing real-time suggestions makes this a challenging task.

Once this is implemented in `libvarnam`, it can be used in the ibus-engine.
