Jacob I guess you would have heard about Kautilya and his work Arthashashtra. Also, If you would have heard about works of Bhadrabahu you will come to know how and what people use to write/read before Ashoka. I guess you need to learn history more . All politicians have fooled tamilians in TN and every person coming out surprisingly speak the same story. Sanskrit was not a commoners language for long thats y it lost its existence and faded with time. Tamil came outta sanskrit. ;)
And if i believe you. mayans who came outta tamils never worshipped Shiva.:D
mr. peace i have already told you mayans capital city is mayappan a pure tamil word that means siva. and the god name mayandi very popular name of siva in tamil nadu .

The Mayan capital was at Tikal, now in northern Guatemala. and the place is mayapan and not mayappan correlates to mayans. Now since maya in sanskrit means illusion that doesnt means mayans didnt even existed or they were too Indian Hindus transported there or we came from there. If u see there culture and way of life it is much similar to todays hindus. ;)

you did not tell more about roman history. I do not write much here is because i have heard almost every tamil and they all say the same theory which they have been taught only in Tamilnadu. you will not find those inferences in any other dravidian state. You think i do not have facts but actually i dont feel like wasting here :D

Tamil is the only oldest living language in present day India. But to the fact or scientific data along with Tamil other south languages like Telugu and Kannada were also originated from a root language named "Moola Dravida Basha" which is proven. So better we say that the oldest language is moola dravida basha rather than Tamil... Sanskrit was an extinct language by the time British came to India...In Sanskrit "Dravida" means Tamil... In an oral form all the languages Tamil Telugu and Kannada trace to the same period. Only because u found an old inscription we cannot say the exact date...Tamil is like a brother to kannada and telugu but definitely not a mother...On a lighter note, Few Tamils might feel like ameoba might have spoken tamil...Sanskrit is definitely much older than Tamil... because as part of indus valley civilisation ppl living there might have migrated to south...while the script that found in indusvalley is much similar to brahmi which is a mother of script devnagari which is a lipi of ancient sanskrit...Conclusion both are great and shows the diversity of India to the world... Afterall they are our languages

Do u have any proof that lord Shiva only created sanskrit. Dont simply blough u are not god or genius to say which language is oldest. Even scientist are struggling who are u man. I will say sanskrit and tamil both are different. They both are not inter mixed k. So dont write simply without proof friend. Do u know lord shive spoke only sanskrit but not tamil. Have u ever seen or heard god speaking any of those language k.

It is not necessary to prove that Tamil is the oldest or original Indian language. Because all the Indians know that Tamil is the only mother language of all the indian languages included with Hindi too.If remove all the word which is taken from tamil for Sanskrit and Hindi, then there will be no Sanskrit and Hindi. it is true and knowing by the people who spoken by hindi. the pronounciations of the hindi and other languages proof itself that tamil is the only maother language of all the indian languages. But some Hindians are never accepted the truths. They forced by the Hindi unnecessarily. thats why even in india somewhere against till dated to Hindi,like Maharastra, Punjab etc...

mr.peace we have already removed all sanskrit words that were used to speak foreign words. in 1900 deva neya pavanar a great tamil scholar did that work. but sanskrit cant remove tamil words from it bcos sanskrit is a dup of tamil and parkrit. sanskrit has no language base.

every tamil word denotes an action. but not so in sanskrit. tamil has 42 one letter words which is the base of tamil from which gradually tamil evolved. if you have any such thing in sanskrit please tell me.

Mr. Jacob ! You have removed sanskrit loan words from Tamil that means there were words in Sanskrit in Tamil language. We dont have so much time to do all this stupidity.:P Just to prove it is the oldest language this was a plot planned long back in 1900's and still fooling the coming generation in TN :D

There are 53 letters in Sanskrit. Now what does that prove ?:-S So every word in any other language doesnt denote action or are meaningless? You are tired Jacob...go n enjoy Diwali and have some fun and come back :)

Records have proved that kannada language is older than Tamil. So Tamil cannot be the oldest language in India.

dont write your opinions please provide proofs. kannada,telugu,malayalam and tamil are no difference. tamilii + sanskrit = kannada,telegu and malayalam. all four languages share the same history bcos all are tamilii. the difference is like kanyakumari tamil,tirunelveli tamil,coimbatore tamil and chennai tamil. when tamil nadu was less affected by sanskrit other dravidian languages were verymuch affected.

I am Telugu, you could see lot of Tamil inscriptions in Tirupathi Temple . Next time while waiting in the Q just check . Next you could visit Kalahasthi, you could find the same , including the architecture is similar to other Tamil . Stretching further you could see it in Ahobilam... In cuddapah and Kurnool you could find in the below list of temple - tamil inscription.

There is a theory all 4 southindian language came from a common language.

55% of inscription available in India is in Tamil.

In tirupathi temple 1100 inscription are in Tamil ; 50 are in Telegu and Kannada as per Temple website details

Two American eminent geologists McKenzie and Sclater have clearly explained that Africa and South America were locked together as part of the primitive continent until about 200 million years ago.
The present formations of India, Arabia, Africa, Antarctica, South America and Australia started breaking up due to natural upheavals and moving to different parts of the earth at the rate of 15,000 years per mile on an average and found their places in the Asian Continent. The movement of the earth mass, called Navalam Theevu in Tamil, caused the formation of the present continent of India.
There was a general belief that both Lemuria and Kumari Kandam were one and the same. However, it has been established by Frank Joseph, Secretary for Ancient American Association, in his book “The Lost Civilization of Lemuria”, the existence of a land called Lemuria, one of the world's oldest civilizations, about 2.5 lakh years ago, in Indonesia. Hence, Lemuria and Kumari Kandam, which existed in southern part of India, are different lands.
Mr. Joseph has also established that the Mohenjodaro letters of Eastern Islands are nearly 1,00,000 years old. He has critically examined the views of various scholars and established the source of Mohenjodaro letters as well as the ancient civilization of Moo and has written that due to natural calamities, the island of Moo was destroyed about 2.5 lakh years ago.
Eastern Island, 1,000 miles near Japan, has a script called Rongo Rongo and it is identical with Mohenjodaro letters. This has been fixed as 1,00,000 years old.
From the Island of Moo called Lemuria, which was located near Indonesia about 2.5 lakhs years ago, people regularly moved out to Atlantis in Mexican Sea and Kumari Kandam in South Tamil Nadu, about 1,00,000 years ago due to tsunami. These letters are the script of Moo civilization, which was well developed.
From Atlantis, due to tsunami, the Moo people moved to South America and became Aztecs and Incas. Those who moved to North America became Mexicans and Red Indians.
In Sillapathikaram, it was mentioned that one “Ezhuthanga Nadu”(7x7 =49 countries) existed. So, Southern Tamil Nadu and Kumari Kandam are different regions. Those who have moved to Southern Tamil Nadu were called Pandiyas and they spread over Ceylon and Tirunelvelli.
Because of a calamity, which took place in 9,000 BC, a terrific destruction occurred and destroyed Chera, Chola and Pandiya Kingdoms and they all then came and settled in South India. The great scholar Sri Avvai Duraisamy Pillai has established that the “Pancha Dravidam” is the region consisting Gujarath, Maharashtra, Andhra, Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
This is the time to write the correct history of Tamil Nadu. In “Irayanar Agapporul”(Nakkeerar Urai) it is mentioned that 72 Pandiya Kings had ruled Tamil Nadu (which was inclusive of the destroyed Kumari Kandam) from 30,000 B.C. to 16,000 B.C.(i.e. for 14,000 years).

Research has not been done so far to assess correctly the shape and appearance of Tamil letters. Today in Tamil, three ‘La', two ‘Ra' and three ‘Na' exist. These exist in ‘Grantha' also. But in ‘Naagari', which got birth in 500 A.C., there are only one ‘La', one ‘Ra', and two ‘Na'.
The Rig Veda calendar was essentially a luni-solar one, the lunar aspects being considered as important for holy purposes, but the solar movements which determined the seasons, were also of importance to Rig Vedic people.
The Rig Veda has already adopted a system of grouping together the stars in the lunar zodiac in the pictorial form, such as that of a bull, scorpion, eagle etc.
The origin of the concept of constellational groupings in pictorial forms can be traced in Rig Veda.
According to N.P.Ramadurai, an astronomy researcher, the cycle of time referring to 24,320 human years is mentioned in the Rig Veda at about 50 places. But to read Rig Veda,‘Grantha' is essential.
Also to read and grasp clearly our ‘Sangam literature'‘Grantha' knowledge is necessary. If we thoughtfully and magnanimously accept that our old Tamil letters are ‘Grantha' letters, it will pave the way to realise our ancient civilization.
Also, to read philosophy, art, sculpture, medicine etc.,‘Grantha' will be useful. It is necessary at this stage to do intensive research on the Mohenjodaro letters and our ancient languages, Sanskrit and Tamil, and, other Indian languages, to ascertain as to how the script changed over a time and new languages evolved.
In India, Tamil and Sankrit are the oldest languages and both are origin of other languages. This fact is proved by Vedas and our Tamil Sangam Literature. Great Saint Arunagiri Nadhar says in his Thirupugazh that Tamil has 51 ‘Atcharams'. Similarly, the total number of ‘Grantha' letters is 51.
What more evidence you peoples want?
To get back the history of more than three lakh years in the past, Saptharishi calendar only will be able to provide proper and genuine assistance.
We have been able to fix the dates of history from 25th Chathur Yuga to 28th Chathur Yuga. Saptharishi Mandala has played an important role in almost all the ancient civilization of the world. It is the pivotal point of all astronomical calculations and observations.
