  1. Nice that we didn’t learn Tamil this way in school. It is however interesting that there are so few letters in the “original” Tamil. Notice that Chennai is written in just two letters. There must have been some Chinese influence or Chinese scripted their language basing original Tamil.

    Ram: You could also see quite a bit of old tamil in the walls of the Tirupati Balaji Temple, sanctum sanctorum walls.

  3. Soon after the declaration of Tamil as a Classical language by the Government of India in its notification through the Ministry of Human Resource Development dated 12 Oct 2004. CECT was established as a part of Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysore, in order to research, document, edit, publish and teach ancient Tamil writings.
