South indian languages derived from brahmi script, Kannada was derived from telugu and separated from telugu,kannada is the offshot of telugu and malayalam is from tamil
Please read the history correctly.

As of written evidence Wikipedia posted the years listing go and see it....search for "List of languages by first written accounts" in Wikipedia and you can see as follows,
First millennium BC: Tamil - c. 200 BC: cave inscriptions and potsherds in Tamil Nadu[
First millennium AD: Kannada - c. 450AD: Halmidi inscription;Telugu - c. 575: Erragudipadu inscription; Malayalam - 9th century: Rajasekhara inscription at Vazhappally Maha Siva Temple

It proves with evidence the TAMIL is the oldest Dravidian language. It is the mother of all other Dravidian languages

Great history of telugus: before independence the madras city belongs to telugu people there were 60% of telugu people and 40% of tamils lived in madras but tamils begged madras bity we thrown madras to tamils and telugu peoples settled in andhra,at 2001 censius there were 41% telugu people in tamilnadu and 7% counted as telugu which those were unable to read telugu means 3600000 are counted as tamils, nearly half of the tamilnadu are the origin of telugu,many people in foreign countries such as singapore,malaysia etc are counted as tamils,before independence the telugu population is double than tamils but now tamil population is just came near to telugu populations. nearly half of tamilnadu is ruling by the telugu origins, and 1000000 telugu people are living in united states of america,500000 in malaysia,500000 in gulf countries,200000 in european countries,100000 in singapore,70000 in south africa and lakhs of telugu people living in other countries such as maritius,fizi and other asian countries and africa,australia and other continents respectively. In our country there are 36 lakh people in tamilnadu,33 lakhs in karnataka,13 lakhs in maharashtra and the rest of india contains nearly 15 lakh people living across all the states in india that is the strength of telugus ability. Telugu is the most speaken language in india after hindi and in world than tamil and kannada. The oldest speaking language states like andhra pradesh population is above 9 crore karnataka population is 6 crore, telugu nri population are 40 lakhs kannada nris are 10 lakhs
Good about so patriotic towards Telugu language....but don't forget your about the mother, which means your Telugu is derived from TAMIL and SANSKRIT.

If u don't know fully, do not write anything..... Andhra pradesh state "Pradesh" is not Telugu word, it is Sanskrit.....Even your state name you don't have in Telugu.

pls stop fighting with in Dravidian languages since we are all in same family of languages.

Prof Shettar’s findings that Kannada language had evolved an independent script much before Tamil and Kannada poets were part of much acclaimed Sangam poets’ conglomeration provides strong justification for the demand for classical language status for Kannada.

Tamil scholars argue that Sangam age existed between 5th century BC and 5th century AD. Sangam was a conglomeration of poets in which Tiruvalluvar and others were important. Sangam poets were secular in their outlook and opposed conservative practices which made them icons of Dravidian and Tamil nationalist movement.

According to Prof S Shettar, Sangam age was more cosmopolitan by nature as poets from neighbouring Dravidian languages were also part of it. Many poets of the then Vaduga region (North to Neelagiri hill ranges and East to Arabian sea) which is present Karnataka were also part of Sangam age. Vaduga was also a buffer region which had conflict with Tamil and at the same time resisted the advances of imperial Mouryas. These vaduga poets belonged to various provinces like Erumaioor (present Mysore), Konkaana (Konkan cost) and others.

According to Prof Shettar, Brahmi script was used in Deccan region (Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh) from 3rd century BC to AD. Many inscriptions of Mourya period found in the region during the period are in Prakrut language and Brahmi script. Buddhist and Jain monks of the period popularised Brahmi script and Prakrut language.

South India developed its own variant of Brahmi script called as Dakshina Brahmi of which Tamil-Brahmi was a sub genre. Experiments to replace Brahmi with Vattelittu script began in Tamil Nadu by 5th century AD.

However owing to technical problems, later Tamilians began experimenting with Grantha script which had its root in Dakshina Brahmi script. Later by synchronising Grantha with Vattelittu script, Tamil script was prepared by 8th century AD and reached its flowering stage by 12th century.

Dr Krishnamurthy, retired Vice Chancellor of Hyderabad Central University, who represents Karnataka in classical language committee set up by Union Government, has presented his argument based on the findings of Prof Shettar. Interestingly ‘Sangam Tamilagam mattu Kannada naaud-nudi’ book is being translated to Tamil.

Don't compare kannada to Tamil language. Kannada is a good young language but not old. The Kannada language is derived from Tamil language. For eg take the countings of 1, 2, 3 itself.. To make another language for some people's convenience, earlier people removed few sounds within the numbers.. like IRANDU in tamil to IRADU... MOONDRU in Tamil to MOORU in kannada.. and they named that language as kannada. They altered so many words and few words meanings.. Eg : "SIKKIDICHI" in Tamil means 'got CAUGHT'.. in kannada 'sikkithu' means just 'got'.. In Tamil THANNEER means water.. In kannada they removed the "THAN" and just have "NEER" which means water. UTKANTHU KOLLUNGAL or UTKARUNGAL in Tamil means,'be seated'.. In kanada, they removed the first sound and altered it to "KOODH KOLLI " means 'be seated'.. In pure Tamil "SELLUNGAL" means "go".. In modern Tamil, we use "PONGO" to say 'go'.. In kannada they took the modern word 'PONGO' and altered it to "OGO" which means go in kanada. In Tamil "OOTUNGAL" or "OOTI VIDUNGAL" means 'feed'. In kanada, they altered the word to "OOTA" which means food in kannada... In Tamil "VENDAM means 'not needed'.. in kanada they altered it to "BEDA" which again means not needed in kanada... Like this kanada was derived from Tamil. kanada is just a derived language and very very very very young compared to the ancient language Tamil. kanada cannot stand anywhere to the rich heritage of the great Tamil language. Tamil is the oldest and first language spoken on this planet. UNESCO has declared Tamil to be the oldest language and researchers around the world proved the oldest language on earth to be Tamil. Tamil inscriptions have been excavated from many parts around the world. Tamil is a pure language. Please don't compare a young language like kanada to the great old language Tamil. Tamil is the oldest and first language.

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