The andhra pradesh people are culturally and traditionally much better than tamils and kannadigas

As a matter of fact, it is well understood that using Tamil one can not write the words of other language where as using kannada we can even write tamil clearly so that end user can speak clearly and last but not least... How many GNANAPEETHA awardrs has your so called great TAMIL got.... Kannada has 8... Tamil barely 2....

Telugu,Tamil,Kannada,Malyalam. ....let any one of these language be the oldest. All these are absolutely useless beyond their respective state . Even now we all talk in English . No one gives a damn about oldest language . People care about language only for communication , and the most USEFUL LANGUAGE -WIDELY SPOKEN -ENGLISH WINS ....

Btw oldest language was proto-Dravidian (cave man's language )......go learn that suckerss....

Kannada is new, modern and decent people's language. Kannada sounds like a beautiful song, Tamil sounds like a dubba old bus with screaching noise......... No one likes to hear that language...except ofcourse..these unique tribe called Tamils.
hope u dont desert your parents because they are old. just saying its wrong :/

Which is better language ? Kannada or tamil ?
As we all typing hitting beating keyboard to prove the greatness of two lanuages in an other language (english). Now it is obvious which one is better i e, the language you are typing. So people please write stories poems songs in your language to prove and protect it.

Ha ha ha on reading all these conversations I'm getting laugh but I understood that when you say your language s derived from some other language it hurts. And they will start attacking other language without reason .who said we don't have Tamil numerals go and search the same , and all kannadisa please write a sentence in Kannada without adding Sanskrit and Tamil word

Tamil is the answer

All Dravidian languages are derived from Tamil and Sanskrit.

From Wikipedia - " Tamil - c. 200 BC: cave inscriptions and potsherds in Tamil Nadu " and "Kannada - c. 450AD: Halmidi inscription"
This based on evidence
