May be Tamil is older than kannada but we kannadigas are far better then cultured than Tamil people..Our culture and tradition is rich and meaningful..

Bangalore has lost its identity bcoz of stupid ppl outside from karnataka.

We kannadigas believe in ATHITHI DEVO BHAVA but dont ever take us for granted..

You ppl live in karnataka but a little courtesy for Kannada..

The oldest literature of Kannada dates 1500 before(by 500 AD)... But Tholkappiyam, the grammar of Tamil was written somewhere between 8000BC-500BC. Please check any source on Internet or any book.

* Thirukkural was written by Thiruvalluvar more that 2000 years before. i.e., 30 years before christ was born... Beat this first.

* For the people in this post who mentioned Tamils and Cholas as barbarians, FYI, the esteemed Roman republic had an embassy in the Pandya court and Chinese empire had an embassy in the Chola court.

* Trade was established by Romans and Chinese with Tamils.

* The ancient Romans had superiority complex by which they treated and called uncivilized lots as Barbarians. They wont establish embassies with barbarians.

* Above mentioned diplomatic relations were established 150 years before there was a Pulikesi I; by which time present karnataka region was probably mixing Tamil and Sanskrit to form Kannada.

* I can understand Kannada people cant digest the fact that a Tamil King, Narasimha Pallavan razed the capital Vadhabi of the Great Pulikesi II.

* Narasimha Pallavan did so to avenge his father Mahendra Pallavan's defeat at Pulikesi II's hands.(NOTE: Mahendra Pallavan defended his capital sucessfully though he was defeated in the battle).

* Andhman and Nicobar Isles are now Indian Territories because it was a Chola territory conquered by Rajendra Cholan I, Son of Great Raja Raja Cholan.

* According to Indian History there are 9 Great Kings who never lost a battle.

1. Ajatashatru

2. Chandragupta Maurya

3. Karikala Chola

4. kochengannan

5. cheran senguttuvan

6. Samudragupta

7. Narasimha Pallavan

8. Rajaraja Chola I

9. Rajendra Chola.

Of these 9 Great Kings, 6 are Tamil kings... So please set aside you're envy and be reasonable.

All information I have entered are well known historical information.

People who support Kannada or any other language as older than Thamizh are anecdotal;
they simply by their own assumptions make this out and their baseless accusations means really nothing for my mother tongue Thamizh,has been more than just a language for me:in all aspects;
all scientists approve that Thamizh is the oldest language and those who criticise Thamizh,I really don't Blame....
in past People did it for their Food,
in present people do it-because they are literally illiterates.
You can find many scientific findings of things,that shows that Thamizh is over 20,000 years old:
next to it,there are a few languages of nearly 5,000 years old.
Kannada is less than 2100 years old and all people actively shared that Kannada is older,please share atleast one proof for that.

It applies to tamil also. for example for village tamil word is gramam it is actually sanskrit word also for relation tamil word is sammadi it is also sanskrit word tamil got its script in 10th century whereas kannada got its script in 4th century and you can understand which is better language
Yes true. Tamil is oldest language. That's why these tamils still behave like stone-age people. Entire south asia hates this tribe.
Just look at Kannadiga's warmth. Look at a tamilian's culture. It is one's behaviour and not history which people like. You cannot go on
tom tomming ur language, culture. Others shud acknowledge.
In any case, ask any Non-Tamilian, about Tamilians. U will get exactly the same opinion of Tamils.

Tamil and Kannada are so similar everything that is va sound in tamil is ba sound in Kannada
Vaaye - Baaye = mouth
Vaa - Baa = come
Vennai - Benye = Butter
And so on...
Also pa sound in tamil and ha sound in Kannada
Panno - hanah = Cash/money
Ponoo - henna = dead body/corpse
Paal - haalu = milk
Paale - haalu = teeth
Like this there are many many similarities so please my request is we are all brothers and sisters so don't fight for god sake
Heck for india's unity sake.

I was reading through most of the comments here.. Its a surreal fact that most of the people who are supporting tamil are living in Bangalore.... If people love their places and languages so much why move away from there... karnataka is the land of opportunities. hence we have intruders and hey.. as for Tamil and kannada.. Both the lingos dont have anything in common... longest living or dead language.. Kannada is most elegant, charismatic and soft language. Its age is not of kids brilliance to understand.. So Shut the hell up or leave Karnataka and run to the land of your lingos
