Hi Pattabhi,

well I can't create the extension for you. You need to get a basic 
understanding how LibreOffice extensions work if you want to do that work.

But why do you want to create an extension for that? If you want spell 
checking in Tamil, you can just provide a dictionary file. You can also 
provide the dictionary as an extension without code.

This page indicates there already exists a spell checker and even 
grammar checker for Tamil, did you check that?
