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????It has told by the great Tamil activist Periyar that "Tamil is World's oldest living barbarian language" and similarly "Kannada is World's oldest civilized language" because of its clarity in scripts and its phenomenal contribution to Sangam literature(one of the oldest available literature)
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.
