Tamil, have come from Middle east, so that means there should a language in India right? Tamil had moved to srilanka that means after Ramayana, so Kannada should be a oldest language after Sanskrit. Then how can any one judge on the history, without clear thoughts? According to history (Red Indians- Juiesh (Before Christ)they speak Ebru, then how can Tamil be the oldest language in the world. Do you think entire world speak tamil????
British have recently said that Kannada has 10,000 Yrs history, that means, even In Ramayana and Mahabaratha they were using Kannada.Buddha Yes, you can find Tamil words in Oldest temple all across, do anybody know the reason? It is simple, they are good in constructions and still they have remained the same.
Its is simple, King Ashoka is a Kannadiga and Srikrishan devaraya is a Mangalorean, Immadi Pulakeshi is a Kannadiga
Ananda was the cousin of the Buddha. He joined the Sangha as a child. He was ordained along with Aniruddha(Kannada Word) and Bhadra(Kannada word). His father was the brother of King Suddhodana(Kannada word), even they are Kannadiga...
So let's not discuss about this, Tamil is a middle east language, then do you think Arabic/Ebru have derived from Tamil, tomorrow they say English, Latin, Spanish all have come from Tamil??(lol)

Mysore is also a old city rite, Mysore was ruling Chennai, Hyderabad, Kerala, UP, Bihar, MP, All most all, coz there was only 2 language 1) Sanskrit 2) Kannada later Tamil, Hindi, Telugu and other.
Tulu Language spoken by Sri Krishnadevaraya, then why there was no lipi for that Language (even this language was old than Sri KrishnaDevaraya) even his fater, his great grand father etc etc ect were speaking Tulu..

Do you think I am wrong.. We have to appreciate British to gather about Kannada, as a Kannadiga I salute them.

in erode disticts of tamilnadu we can find peoples still speaking tamil- kannada as their mother tongue,it shows kannada is born from tamil and their community name is madari community or chakkiliyan community or arunthathiyar community.if you ask these community people about mother tongue they will tell kannada but ask them to speak kannada the will speak tamil-kannada,similarly telugu they speak tamil-telugu,similarly ask tamil to speak they speak pure tamil,this is clear evidence that kannada and telugu are born from tamil as mother.this community peoples are the ancient dravidian peoples and original tamil peoples and original indians , lived in sangam period and father of tamil,telugu,kannada origin.

Ok boss Tamil is the Oldest Language lets believe. Then what will you get from this???
If Kannada Rulers were like you people i don't think Tamil would have still existed in India.
Kannadigas never tried to impose their language but shame on you people, being in Bangalore for 10-15 yrs you don't have courtesy to respect the language of the soil where you are earning your bread. Thank Kannadigas for not imposing language like you.
Whatever Tamil might be the oldest language(Kannada is also Oldest and Better in Grammar) but it can never dominate us. Even i stayed in Chennai for 2 yrs and learnt Tamil because my Mother Land gave me that Sanskara. I dont hate Language Tamil... but you Tamilians try to feel like Indians Please...

Kannada is a southern Dravidian Language and according to Dravidian scholar Sanford Steever, its history can be conventionally divided into three periods; Old Kannada (halegannada) from 4501200 A.D., Middle Kannada (Nadugannada) from 12001700 A.D., and Modern Kannada from 1700 to the present.[23] Kannada is influenced to an appreciable extent by Sanskrit. According to the Dravidian scholars Bhadriraju Krishnamurti and Kamil Zvelebil, Kannada and Tamil split into independent languages from the proto Tamil-Kannada sub-group around 8th 6th. century B.C

F.Y.I

The scholar Iravatham Mahadevan proved that Kannada was already a language of rich oral tradition earlier than 3rd century B.C., and based on the native Kannada words found in Prakrit and Tamil inscriptions of that period, Kannada must have been spoken by a widespread and stable population.[25][27] The scholar K.V. Narayana claims that many tribal languages which are now designated as Kannada dialects could be nearer to the earlier form of the language with lesser influence from other languages.[25]

I don't know what to call you.... just remember one thing Kannadigas are giving shelter to you people in our land. Let your language be old and please don't compare it with great kannada you dont have right to....

The scientists did not used to even believe writing had been used at the time of Moses so claimed he was illiterate. This was their erroneous claim until more writing was unearthed through archaeological digs finding king's list.

The culture and language of India, like those of China, came out of Babylon, the first region inhabited after the flood, as recorded in the Bible.

Sumeria is located in the Land of Kish (Kush or Cush) founded by son of Noah's son Ham.

"Kish was occupied beginning in the Jemdet Nasr period (3100 BC), gaining prominence as one of the pre-eminent powers in the region during the early dynastic period.

The Sumerian king list states that it was the first city to have kings following the deluge, beginning with Jushur."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kish_%28Sumer%29


"The Sumerian Kish, the first city established in Mesopotamia after the Flood, took its name from the man known in the Bible as Cush. The first kingdom established after the Flood was Kish, and the name "Kish" appears often on clay tablets. The early post-Flood Sumerian king lists say that "kingship descended from heaven to Kish" after the Flood."

I agree tamil is oldest. But, tamil has worst sciprt. there is not much difference between old kannada and tamil. In fact, it is believed kannada is born in TN. Kannada is logical and highly developed when compared to tamil script. I can write ganesh,kanesh,Khanesh,Ghanesh all can be written in kannada script! Now differentiate this in tamil script? It is no way possible.
It is very basic language. Ppl I respect tamil language and expect you ppl to respect all other languages too. U love your language but, dont degrade others.
