Vedas written in 2000BC had a written proofs.
Dwarka - still had the incriptions of Lord Krishna written in Sanskrit proven by UNESCO, almost 3000 years old.
Tamil, Telugu originated from Proto Dravidian languages. People who used to follow neolothic culture around Godavari River Delta regiin started speaking these languages. Tamil and Telugu both originated from dravidian language which is born from Sanskrit. There is no written proofs saved on either in pottery nor in caves thats why telugu is treated as 500AD language. If we check from the rulers around 1500 BC - godavari river delta region on wards is considered as dravidians and languages got born. First tamil, then telugu and so on. but sanskrit is the guru which is older than Egyptian but no proofs found. Our vedas are the prrof written in sanskrit around 3000BC. I am also a south indian but did a lot of research in history and concluded in this argument. Please excuse if any mistakes and correct if possible.

to all the north indians what iam saying are from the vedas.

the puranas are the answers for our arguements.
As i already said that in matsya purana it is said that the tamil king manu escaped from the flood.
he had all literatures.
then the bhavisya maha purana says the vedas now we are having are not the original vedas and the language of the original vedas was another language. most of the vedas were destroyed in the flood. and all the vedas were rewritten in new language.

and that even were destroyed by evil people and prakrit took upper hand in india. and then only panini established sanskrit and took over prakrit.
So you people of north please dont argue because the veda itself is self descriptive. it is clearly written in bhavisya purana that sanskrit is established in kaliyuga only. kali yuga is 5350 years that is going to end this 2035.

As the vedas and puranas were rewritten in sanskrit by sanskrit people every where only brahmins are mentioned. and all the names were sanskritised.

If you want to argue futher please answer to this veda references first.

Bala ..you are an educated illiterate from TN. You are one of those terrorists from LTTE who killed so many people in SL. You are a Indian and fight against Indian govt for the rights of non-indians living in SL. actually entire Tamils from TN are Tamils first and Indians later. This is how they are fed. They kill Indian PM for the sake of non-indians. Why should we stand against Lanka when it is an Ally to India. Lanka never attacked India. going against Lanka is giving China control over Indian Ocean and risking Indian lives for no reason. These fellas from TN are not worried about Indians , all they want is lives of Non-Indians residing in Lanka and expect India to support them,. Why? Pakistanis attack the integreity of India, Lanka never does that...it is Lanka's Internal Matter...India is not UN to handle this. Lankan Tamils are Lankans and not Indians. Tamil nadu should be declared a new country as you said or All of you should be sent to your brothers in Lanka and your nationality to be changed to Lankans ... Indian govt is there to support Indians all over the world and not non-Indians. Tamils in India are threat to India's Integrity. They should be declared a new country as soon as possible. a country of Black terrorists as in Congo etc. Prabhakaran too got what he deserved. Once travelling in tamilnadu I saw people worshipping that terror head prabhakaran and left me shocked :D
you fool please read the history...when srilanka was an ally of india? it is always an enemy to india...pakistan is a visible enemy but srilanka is an invisible enemy...in all the indo-pak war srilanka always supported pakistan...srilanka is not a big country to scare it is as tiny as tamilnadu...but what our beloved rulers doing? begging lankans not to join with china...no country indian sub continent can do anything against india since it is a nuclear nation...chinese well known that if they increase their influence in srilanka, india also could increase its influence in taiwan, south china sea but now they have built port in hambantota because there is no strong rulers ..we have the nuclear ballistic missiles to destroy beijing in few minutes then why should get fear about a tiny nation not even a size of our big states...only after 2009 ie the downfall of ltte chinese influence is more in srilanka...ltte is always a guard for india while from the beginning of srilankan independence srilanka never a trust worthy country for india...but as far as today even srilanka could attack india because of the spineless congress rule which was selected by northies like you...the tears and bloodsheds of srilankan tamils and the pain they have will happen to you also in few years then you will know their pain when srilankans,chinese and pakistanis attack you because of the weak congress rule selected by you...only because of "tamil terrorist" like abdul kalam who is the main reason for making india a military super power you are all still surviving...instead of making tamilnadu a separate land try to remove the spineless congress rule...for tamilnadu there is no pblm even it will survive if it is free from india...but that is not we are expecting...

Tamil is the oldest language, recent archaeologists encountered references to rivers that dried up 10,000 years ago written in Tamil. I respect Sanskrit language, but truth is Tamil is the oldest in the world.
QUOTE who="Krt"]Sanskrit is the oldest language in India. Tamil is the oldest living language in India. The exact date & time of evolution of these languages can never be found. The earliest work of Tamil that is unearthened is 'Tholkappiyam' that dates back to 2200 years. And Vedas in Sanskrit has evolved some 3500 years ago.
Both the languages have not borrowed any word from the other one in their evolution. Brahmins whose ancestors spoke Sanskrit embraced Tamil later. They replaced few Tamil words with Sanskrit. Today, the current generation is replacing Tamil words with English. After some 100 years, either these kids will speak English completely or Tanglish. So, the oldest living language of India also may die completely or partially.

Dear Thrivikraman, you don't know the pain of Tamil people in srilanka, if the same thing happen to your blood relation then you won't talk like this. See the evidence on channel 4, they released lot of videos. Do you know about Indian peace keeping force which india sent long back about 25 years back.

Nobody can say the age of Tamil, but still we have some proof of 10000 years old of scripts in Tamil.

Tamil is the oldest language of this earth, our ancestors are more intelligent than anyone in the world, all intellectual properties are purposefully destroyed.

My half of the family serves in defence forces. I am aware of the Indian strategy and the cinese and paki strategy against India. Just talking and countering will not help India in any ways. Sitting at your home and talking stupidity is a tamil trait. U destroy Beijing and their missiles will do Nothing? Lankan Tamils are not Indians...I am surprised that ppeople from tamilNadu suport Lankans(Lankan Tamils) just because they are Tamils and not Indians is total bull shit. Tamils attacked Ram in early age, Indian PM in modern age. Tamils have been always the biggest threat to country's integrity.

hello Mr. who told you tamils are not indians. mind your words.brave heart prabakaran is the real leader of all tamils living in this world. he stood his ground till the last blood fell on the ground. he and his family even his little son was on the battlefield. north indians and the srilankans think prabakaran is dead. but he is not dead. he is seeded deep into our heart. he will be born again to fight for our freedom. ilankai is the last land left over of the kumari kandam. we will definitely chase off the lankans(kashmir brahmins the bloods of ravana) and conquer our land back after 9000 years. ye the patriot sikhs killed the enemy of india indira gandhi. our warriors killed her offspring. and still three more left in the list. we the real native of india and kumari kandam will fight back
Prabhakaran was an ass who got what he deserved. He was not a patriot. He never worked for India but for Tamils who are not Indians. Coming to Kashmiri pundit's they were Indians as Maharaja Ranjeet Singh decided to merge with India not forced. I Dunno Why Indian Tamils support Lankans. Raavan the Tamil King tried to attack India once and now he was born as Prabhakaran. anyways both were sent back where they deserved to be and wil be continued to be. Truth wins and Prabhakaran the terrorist Dies.

you north indians you suck very much. how many times we have given you proof that ravanan is a brahmin(kashmiri). you guys again and again talking the same bullshit. please get some knowledge about india and srilanka before you write your idiotic views about tamils. your words are not going to make any impression. because we know you guys are so stupid. first of all please give me reason for the matsya purana and bhavishya purana were it is said that vedas were written first in tamil. please have mercy and write something intelligent. we are fedup with stupid arguements. if you like srilankans we dont care. you can also send your women from your house to srilanka. thats your choice please write about tamil and sanskrit here.

Aryans always wanna show their supermacy, if u hav got a glimpse of "The Discovery Of India" By Nehru, He explains clearly that u have come to india from Iran And Europe, There is No Wonder in Iran n European People Speaking A Language Similar To Yours, Linguistic Researches And Historical Monmuments Have Confirmed Tamil As The Oldest Living Language. More than 55% of the epigraphical inscriptions (about 55,000) found by the Archaeological Survey of India are in the Tamil language, Dravidians are The Natives Of India And Tamil Is The Oldest Living Language.

So The Congress Knows Abt the Assaination !!?? Why Didnt Rajiv Gandhi Visit Netaji Daughter When She Came To India ??

U Aryans Are Only Concerned About Ditching Tamilans, as if Rajiv Gandhi Was a saviour of India !!

the names aryans and dravidians were mis understood by many scholars. in earlier tamil literatures there are references for those also. on those days greeks and romans were trading with tamils. the colour of tamils were dark to light shade. and the hair is black and eyes are black and the nose were flat or round. but the foreigners who came to trade with tamils were fair skinned and brown eyes and sharp nose. they were totally different from tamils. so tamils called them ariyar that means strangers. this is mentioned in all old literatures. the strangers called tamils as tamilar. ariyar later became aryans and tamilar became dravidar. the kashmiri brahmins also looked similar to the strangers so first tamilar called them ariyar.

and regarding the geneology of sinhalese the srilankan foreign minister has submitted a gene research to indian government that says the srilankans and the north indian brahmins share the same gene. in all ancient literatures of tamil and sinhalese ravanan is mentioned as a brahmin who came from kashmir and invaded srilanka. this is in the puranas also. please refer the vedas and the puranas before writting something . we dont want your thoughts about tamil we need proofs.

You tamilians mean over 175,000 years back Lord Ram used to speak tamil? C'mon fools! Don't speak sh!t. Sanskrit is the mother of all languages and all languages and their words were translated from sanskrit. Recently, over 9100 years old stone tablets were excavated from brazil by archaeologists with sanskrit inscriptions written on them. This whole world belonged to the Hindus once, all invaded and captured by others from us. Where was your tamil, and where were you tamils then? Fa,rt now!

In which purana? Also, don't give reference from a translated version or some other scriptures written just a few centuries back. Why would the puranas be talk about languages?! I don't get it..
