Sanskrit is the oldest living language of India simply because it's all pervasive in modern day Indian languages (even Tamil has borrowed).
Going by the discovered manuscripts and literary works, Rigveda is considered the oldest 1500BC, and hence onceagian Sanskrit takes the crown of Oldest language.
Kannada, has the oldest inscripts (Nishadi) from the Proto-Old Kannada days. Also the oldest Tamil inscription dating back to 350BC has generous Kannada words (refer the scholar Iravatham Mahadevan). So in all essence of the oldest language, Sanskrit certainly is. Of the oldest spoken languages in India, Kannada and not Tamil takes the crown.
what a foolish comment this is!.

dear friend mahadeva

first you must know the history of languages. then come to the topic. do you know the first grammenr book for old or new kannada language. but we know for our(tamil) language that is first in b.c 9850(agathiyam) and secound in b.c 1500(tolkaapiyam) but sanskrit had grammer in b.c 500(panini) only. and you must know another thing there are lot of tamil words in rig veda ( b.c 1500) so in
b.c 350 tamil , kannada , sanskrit words are here and there are not pointable things

The name of lord shiva it self came from tamil language,shiva=shivappu which means red colour in tamil. tholkappiam is much older than vedas.

sanskrit is the oldest language in the world.tamil is not the oldest living langusage in india but sanskrit is.sanskrit is not a dead language.a dead language means it is not used anymore.sanskrit is still used in every hindu temple for holy rituals and mantras.there is a wrong assumption that tamil is older than sanskrit.this is very wrong.tamil evolved from sanskrit.sanskrit is not created by mere men but lord shiva himself.sanskrit is also called the language of the devas.vedas are anadhi(birthless) they are not created by god but his breath.even bhrami scripts are older than tamil.i m not degrading tamil but sanskrit is the father language of tamil and other language of the world.
vedas are like moral stories..those are not real.. no evidence of lord shiva in india..

Mr.venkatesh dont say that.

siva is god.he is in both sex(siva and amman). early tamils worshipped siva and they visited the siva ilingam in himalayas. the early hunters worshipped velan. vel is the symbol of velan.it has dominant power over unhuman living things in this world.velan is still worshipped in north srilanka. the oldest temples are still there.

all the religions in this world speak only about siva and velan. in other names. have you heard about lama. the god of buddha the other name of velan. allah the other name of velan. in early days velan was worshipped as a invisible spirit. bible says the holy spirit the other name of velan. each and every holy books in the world says the same three gods.siva(god who created us)amman the female part of siva and the velan the holy spirit.

read ancient tamil histories.

vedas are the photo copy of ancient holy books and beliefs of tamils . brahmins are the whicked people of the earth. ravana was their ancestor there is proof. srilankans dna matching only with brahmins the kashmiris.

take ramayana rama is a tamilian he is described as a dark colour handsome person.and ravana a light coloured person.only the names and places were rearranged in ramayanam.the proof of ramayanam belonging to tamil is the presence of agathyar in ramayanam.the north indians argue that there were two agathyar. but ramayanam says rama met agathyar near ilankai.

and to all sanskrit supporters please note the below calculations as per written records of tamil literatures. the third tamil sangam started at 1500 bc and ended at 350 ad. all literatures of third sangam is preserved till now.

the second tamil sangam started at 5400 bc and ended at 1500 bc. only tholkaapiyam survived after the tsunami that interrupted the tamil sangam. all the poems in the second tamil sangam was written with tholkaapiyam as its base grammer. "so tholkaapiyam is the first literature created in second tamil sangam. so tholkaapiyam was written in or around 5400 bc.

the first tamil sangam started at 9840 bc and ended at 5400 bc. all the literatures otherthan agathyam and the siddha medicine of agathyar were destroyed by the tsunami that seperates the first sangam and second sangam. all poems of first sangam were written with agathyam as the basic grammer. so agathyam was the first literature written in first tamil sangam. "so agathyam was written in or around 9840 bc.

this years are calculated according to the written documents in the sangam literatures.

so anyone want to challenge tamil can give their proofs in any ancient literature(it should be mentioned in that literature itself)

lemuria is not a continent. it is a subcontinent of kumari kandam. the name is eelam oor(city of eelam). eelam oor the subcontinent of kumari kandam was the most wealthiest land on those days and till today also. it has lot of gold mines rich woods(sandal and teak) and plenty of peacock. this sub continent contains 10 major cities. ravanan's ancestors inwaded this sub continent. thats why ravana is said to have 10 heads(king of 10 desam).
this is mentioned in bible also in the old testament. it is said abraham sent people from greece to ophir to get gold. the sea route is also mentioned and it takes 3 years to and from greece to ophir. ophir is oviyar nadu which was ruled by kuberan the cousin brother of ravana. in english movies and stories it is mentioned as el-da-rado the gold rush. gold,rich woods and peacock feathers were exported on those days from oviyar nadu.
now tamils are fighting to reclaim their continent eelam oor.but unfortunately north indians are supporting ravana's people for unknown reasons.

Friends tamil is old language histroy saying like that only we r not 2000 years before people because there was one lemoriya(kumari) kandam in south tamilnadu that lemoriya kandam connecting austrliya and africa madacascar island where tamil was ruling now it is under the sea. In that time also we grew up as sangam(commitee).so belive tamil is oldest language.

Tamils are taught all this from childhood. They are taught to learn only about tamil language so they don know what happens outside tamilnadu or tamil language !
Thats y everbody share the same knowledge which no one anywhere will know. they will use long complex tamil words and think Tamils lived with dynasours.

though still they look like tribals and Tamil language itself is like loud rural tribal one ,they want to take advantage of all this.

Mr.kool in tamilnadu we learn about all history indian,international. but in north india u learn only north indian history. you dont know anything about tamil and its history. if you read history of tamilnadu written by a north indian author, there it will say that tamilnadu is a small village and mumbai is situated near newyork.dont be silly.your language stands nowhere near tamil. you people dont even now to speak sanskrit. but tamil is living since 10000 bc till now. 10000bc is according to the first literature in tamil. but we still dont know the real year tamil was born it may go beyond 10000bc. who said tamils are tribals. take a small example of our railways. noone in north india buys ticket to travel in unreserved class and if the ttr comes to check that he will be killed.recent news say that. but look at tamilnadu everybody even the illiterates buy ticket. now say who are tribals...

Y should i even care if my language stands next to tamil or not? What is tamil? Higgs Boson?:D If you go and ask Jarawa people they will also say they hav the oldest history but poor people cant prove that :) actually no one can prove anything coz nothing is know exactly. everything is working upon assumptions.
and If i believe it anyhow that Tamil has oldest literature than tamil is the oldest language. Its just like saying before Tamil nobody knew how to speak :D Are you a TTE ? who said all people take tkts in tamilnadu trains? above all i have seen people even bath in general compartments toilets too. Direct Raavans ancestors !
