The only reason that Tamil is oplder than sanskrit is Tamil is the language od God Maha Vishnu.

The Tamil Azhwars sung Hymns in praise of the lord Vishnu in 106 Temples in the world (one in Nepal the rest in India including only 8 in North India)

Can anybody prove that the Hymns, 4000 Paasurams (Naalayira Divyapirabandham) were written in sanskrit and not in Tamil?

Verify with the Divyadesams in the North India (that too I have to tell where and what are those) Badrinath, Dwaraka, Mathura,..... in what language the hymns were sung called as Mangalasasanam (in Tamil)

People in North India know that Tamil is the oldest language of the human history and they cannot digest the truth. sanskrit is also one of the oldest languages of the world, but 70% of the root words are taken from Tamil. Today Sanskrit is replaced by Hindi but Tamil is not replaced by any other languages.

It is very difficult to prove the oldest among Tamil and Sanskrit. There are not much archeological evidences to know the exact antiquity of either of these languages. But both the languages are very old. We should note that Sanskrit was the language of the scholars, priests. Tamil was the language of scholars and also the masses. So definitely there would have been large number of Tamil speakers compared to Sanskrit speakers in ancient times which keeps the language alive till now. But it is a fact that Tamil was not given its due importance and recognition in India being one of the oldest languages of the world. Whereas Sanskrit enjoyed greater importance than Tamil as it was the official language of the Hindu religion and mother of most of the languages in northern India, most prominent of them being Hindi. India treats Tamil as just another regional language. It is shameful to see that when the linguistic scholars around the world had already recognized Tamil as one of the classical languages of the world , it took the Indian government decades to officially recognize Tamil as a classical language. Why this bias against Tamil?..

Brother all these stories told to u to believe that u r superior and it makes u think that anything that comes against is false. Just leave ur bullshit religion. Just think! Tamil is greater than sanskrit! challenged by wrong propaganda and still! But tamil will survive and still flourish! u keep barking!

but all those verses with scentific record are in sanskrit and prakrit which proves lots of words are adopted from it and still today modern tamil have adopted lots of words like 'erathiri , thaier , zamindar , panchayath , samayam etc.... no point in debate and also so called thirukukkal is from jain scholar where 100000 jain jain scholar were massacred by 7th century kings ( nana sanbandar ) and tamil people still hiding it coz mass graveyard was found in tanjayore and madurai in 1997 . indian express reported it first and later on covered up by tamil nadu government to hide it.

Tamil is the oldest language in the world .These are not my words.It was said by Asco Parbola who spent his 50 years in this research.He even roped his daughter in this research.According to him,tamil was in use before the arrival of aryans who came through khyber pass.Tamil is naot derived from any language.If any language should be declared as a classical language,then it should not be derived from any language.There are many sanskrit words in tamil but it does not mean tamil language is derived from sanskrit.even there are english words in tamil but noone in this world would say Tamil is derived from English.

There is book titled "Vada Mozhi Varalaru" (North Language History)- Vol I & II written by "Mozhi inghayiuru" (Language Sun) Devaneya Pavanaar. He compares the same word in vedic langugae, German, Greek, Latin, Sanskirit and Tamil. He finds the roots of the Sanskirit words. He states that most of the words are either without roots (i.e. borrowed word) or have roots in Tamil or other languages. He says that GOD created him to prove that Sanskirit came from Tamil. These books are a must for Tamil teachers.
Roots must link nature with the language sound and words.
As Tamil has fewer letters in Ka, Cha, Da, Tha, Pa than Sanskirit, it may be safely assumed that a language (i.e. Sanskirit) with more letters came from a language with fewer letters. Often new language is built upon the old language by enhancing that. This is also true in computer languages.
Often Tamil is critisised for not having soft sounds such as 'Sa','ha','fa', etc as found in Sanskirit. It proves that Tamil with hard sounds could be an ancient language as Periyar called it "Kattumirandi Mozhi" (Barbarian Language).
It is said that many ancient Tamil books on Medicine, Music and Dance, Agama Rituals were translated into Sanskirit and then the Tamil originals were destroyed to hide the source identitiy. Thus Tamil race lost its language resources.

Dear, Indians, We were and are one. Aryans and dravidians are not different. We are all the same. The theory of Aryans coming form Central asia is a myth, fabricated by the British with the help of Max Mueller in order to divide us, so that the British can rule us. Unfortunately now when even the western archiologists are defying the theory of Aryan migration, we in India are still supporting it because of political gains. Can't parents of dark complexion have a slightly fairer couloured child? Is it so difficult to accept that we are all one, just a little different in physic and colour? Isn't it true that the bi-product of chewing beatle laef ( green colour), lime stone ( white color) and aracanut ( brown in colour) results in absolute stunning red colour juice?. Think again my dear Brothers and Sisters of India, we are the victims of British hypocracy and some current Indian politicians. Din't some of us dismis the belief of Ram Setu as mythology? Now Nasa has the proof that it did exists. Unfortunately, we are still tied with the differences between us, while the Americans called it ADAM's bridge. How ironic. Can we call brooklyn bridge as Sardar Vallabh Bhai setu.
LET US BE UNITED.

We are loosing out to the rest of the world because of our own difference. In todays's world, 1,2,3,4 these numerical sytem is largely accepted by the name " Arabic numbers". If you do some simple googling, you will be surprised to know that these numbers actually orinated from India, but introduced to the western world by a Persian. So the western world caleed it arabic numbers while in actuality ist is supposed to be INDIAN numerical system.
Ref : wikipedia.
Biriyaani : Mouth watering Delicacy : Now a days it is known to be originated from Persia meaning current day Iran and neighbouring countries. It just takes a simple common sense to disqualify this theory. Arab states are basically Deserts except for small oasis. During the middle ages people came from all around the world to buy spices in India. We were THE one who knew about cutivating and using spices. Then how is it possible that Biriyaani which is full of different spices be from Persia?
Indonesia : or : Hindu asia : I do not have proof for this but do you know that a major portion of Bahasa Indonesia ( Again the word Bahasa in indonasian language means the same as Bhasha in hindi or language in english) the national language of Indonesia contains Sanskrit and Tamil words? Eg: Gaja - Elephant, Wanita - Woman, Pushpa - flower, How about the ex prsident's name " Megawati Sukarno Putri ( all the three words are Sanskrit ) Now coming to the influence of Tamil words in Malaysian language Kedai - shop, Kardai - Donkey, Kolam - lake.
Is English out of bounds from the influence of Indian languages? Hell no.
Kannada word : Maru Katte - Market ( same meaning)
How about the names of months in English calender. Lets compare : Now historians accept that initially the English calender had only 10 months starting from March to December. That is March - 1st month, Feb - 2nd month, April - 3rd month and so on. Now carefully see the names of September which according to the olden day's calender is 7th month and in Sanskrit 7 is SAPTA, October - 8th month ( Sanskrit 8 is Ashta ), November - 9th month, in Sanskrit 9 is Navam, December - 10th month, in sanskrit 10 is Dasam. How about about greek language, Father is called Pitter and mother is called Matter and We call Matah and pitah. In ancient days foreigners stole our culture, tradition, wealth and our way of life and called it their's.
IT IS STILL HAPPENING.
Wake up dear Brothers and Sisters of India. Try searching through libraries and data bases of research done by the western scientists. If not atleast try googling about the fact that I have furnished above and find the truth for yourself.

Sanskrit is the oldest language. Doubt that tamil as the oldest language comes from Aryan Invasion theory, which has been proven false through archeology. Tamil people say that ancient Rishis used to speak Tamil. As we know that Rishis travelled to world to teach ppl how to speak, then there must be Tamil words in other languages like European languages. But these are influenced very very much by Sanskrit. So, ofcourse Sanskrit is the oldest language. It is so called "Mother of all languages"

There is no better proof than this that Tamil is the Greatest Language.
Yes, Thamizh is the greatest and most powerful language - its very clear, scientific and mathematical, unmatched - something that even sanskrit cannot come close to. Thamizh is the root of Hinduism, from which everything came - from Lord Siva that is - siva is a Thamizh word, proff that the whole Universe comes from the seed blessed by the Lord, in Thamizh, my greatest love ever.
Sivan = siva + an siva means red color, an means male. So, it indicates a male with redness quality, it may have meant his thrid eye which was red in anger and is used to destroy the whole world.

actually it is not Prophet Adam who all human beings came from spoke syriac also Prophet Seth Prophet Enoch and prophet Noah PBH i know this will burn many hindus but this is what Prophet MuhammadPBH said what u talk is rubbish and arabic was one of the earliest spoken languages by one of the first descendants of Noah the people of AD so what sanskrit are u taliking about it is true before any aryan race came to hind or india what was spoken there it was the dravidian language which came from the elamites u are forgetting the avestan language of the ancient farsi people?
