Birth of Malayalam is stated in Kerala State's 9th Standard social science book. Extract is
"We depend on literary works also for
historical research. Old Tamil songs describe the ancient Tamilakam including Kerala.They are very valuable. The geographical
area which is now known as Kerala was initially a part of Tamilakam. Oral tradition collected at different points of time constitute
the ancient Tamil songs. Pathuppattu, Ettuthokai, Pathinenkeezhkanakku
are the three divisions under which these old songs are collected.Ettuthokai includes songs like Pathittuppathu,
Akananuru, Purananuru etc".
"Brahmins were people who migrated from other areas and settled down here (present kerala). Brahmin settlements developed in fertile places. They reached high positions in society by giving ideological support to the power of the kings (Pandya Kings-Perumals) and by controlling the rites, ritual and worship in temples. They became land owners and appointed others the work in their lands. The society described in the old Tamil songs vanished gradually and a new society which followed the ideas of brahmins took shape in Kerala. A new formation with caste-based society, based on chathurvarnya which is centred on the brahmins and with land owned by landlords came into existence"
It is very little extract, how present day Malayalam language and Malayalee born out of Tamil or Tamilar.
