Kannada may be the king of the languages... But tamil is the mother of that king... If tamil roots words from kannada was removed... Really kannada would be worthless... It's behind tamil ' s transformation. Never underestimate any language.... Especially the mother of ur language.... Be a heartful guy... Few say tamil scripts are baby scribbles but know one thing if u want to write.. First of all.. U have to hold the pen... Start to drag the stick... Then scribble...After years of practice... U would get perfect script... Similarly tamil is very ancient... It's seems scribble for u guys those who feel like that... But if u don't scribble how would u get a good script as ur kannada... Hence don't underpower the ettiquity of Tamil. Kannada yet a superb language... Similarly to the proverb.. If mom crosses eight feet... It's siblings will cross sixteen feet.. It's similar to this... Though the siblings is great than mom's work... It's due mom's training... Similarly tamil may not be perfect for u guys... But because of Tamil words... Ur kannada sentences glow and it will glow forever

Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Telugu are not separate languages. They are one and the same. Count from 1 to a 100 in 999 in each of these languages. You would agree. Say "He, she, me, you, it, they, he, which, when,here, there, where" in these languages and you would agree with me.

The impact of kingdoms of karnata origin have been felt over other parts of India also. The Sena Dynasty of Bengal called themselves Karnata Kshatriyas, the Karnatas of Mithila ruled over present day Bihar called themselves Karnata Vamsha and Karnataka Kshatriya.The Chindaka Nagas of centra India, Gangas of Kalinga (Orissa),Chalukyas of Vengi,Yadava Dynasty of Devagiri, Cholas of Tanjore, Shivaji of Maharashtra, Solankis of Gujrat, Rathores of Rajasthan, pandyas (bahutala pandyas of udupi) were all of Kannada origin who later took to encouraging local languages. Every Tamil classic talks about Kannada literature. Get to know what Karnata country was all about. Current all south indian states including MH and Goa were part of Karnata.

Kannada is great than Tamil. Because Tamil Scripts are like writing without any idea and also very lenghthy to write a simple sentence. Tamil Script is like a Baby's drawing wich is very ugly to see. And Marathi is not having its own Script they use to write in Hindi Script only. Marathas should be ashamed to not to have their own Script of writing.

The summary of this discussion is enunciated in the following points: 1. Kannada came into its independent existence from the proto-Dravidian language in the 6 B.C. timeframe. 2. In about 3-4 B.C. Kannada was already in use by the common people. 3. In 3 B.C. Kannada influenced the Indo-Aryan languages like Prakrit. 4. In the 2-1 B.C. timeframe, Kannada also influenced the Dravidian language Tamil. 5. There are socio-political reasons for the 500 year delay of the emergence of Kannada in shaasanas when compared to Tamil shaasanas. That does not mean Kannada at that time did not have its own language, script and literature.

Kannada has influenced Tamil literature (Sangam period).In the recent 2003 Harvard publication "Early Tamil Epigraphy" authored by Iravatam Mahadev has important substance in the current discussion. This publication provides a new direction and paradigms to the question of Kannada's antiquity. It extends the antiquity of Kannada to older times than presently known. It also presents a new thought that Tamil came under the Kannada influence in the years of B.C. timeframe.

Tamil is one of the longest surviving classical languages in the world. Tamil literature has existed for over 2000 years. Tamil & Telugu were orginated from Dravidian. In that tamil is orgin for Malayalam and kannada. When compared to telugu tamil is mother place for many languages where it is less in Telugu. Tamil language doesnt have any borrow words from other languages like Sanskrit n Urdu but telugu does it. According to me Language can be considered as best by comapring the age of language not by quantity of people speaking the language.

Nothing about language fanaticsm, but reality is Tamil has the great literary traditions and still surviving oldest language of the world.(Tholkapiyam which is the oldest grammer book of Tamil shows how the language is properly structured and developed much earlier in 3 rd century BC.This proves the language should have evolved much before 3rd century,No other language has such antiquity) Thirukural covers all dimensions of Human life encompassing the teachings of bible, geeta,quran, though not being a religious book. Carnatic music had its origin from this language(many falsely interpret it with Karnataka as the sound seems to be similar when pronounced). Bharatanatyam( from tamil land) is the oldest dance form which gave birth to other dance forms of india. Many great scientists are Tamils(from Ramanujam --C.V.Raman--Abdul kalam till yesterday's noble prize winner Venkatraman Ramakrishnan) In sports also starting from F1 Narain karthikeyan to Chess Champion Vishwanathan Anand to Cricketing spin wizard Muttaiah Muralidaran A.r.Rahman , Ilayaraja, Cholan kings and the list of great Tamilians continues

Tamizh - ancient, classical, great, expressive, beautiful language. Language created a classical language awareness in India. First language to be addressed as a classical one in India. Most of the scripts and monuments found in India are Tamizh (more than 50%), no one can deny this... Known Indus valley civilization scripts are proven to be Tamizh language.

Tamil is the very First and Oldest Language in the World. It is proved by lot of Scientist and also accepted by most of the scientists. Before Aryans(Sanskrit) comes to India, Dravidian(Tamil) people living in Indai with high standard. Even Aryans dont have any specific language when they comes to India. They develop their language after comes to India only. There is lot of Tamil words in Sanskrit. Ref: ca. 200,000 to 50,000 BC: Evolution of "the Tamilian or Homo Dravida", ca. 200,000 to 100,000 BC: Beginnings of the Tamil language 50,000 BC: Kumari Kand am civilisation 20,000 BC: A lost Tamil culture of the Easter Island which had an advanced civilisation 16,000 BC: Lemuria submerged 6087 BC: Second Tamil Sangam established by a Pandya king 3031 BC: A Chera prince in his wanderings in the Solomon Island saw wild sugarcane and started cultivation in Kumari Kand am. 1780 BC: The Third Tamil Sangam established by a Pandya king 7th century BC: Tolkappiyam (the earliest known extant Tamil grammar)

To qualify as a classical tradition, a language must fit several criteria: it should be ancient, it should be an independent tradition that arose mostly on its own not as an offshoot of another tradition, and it must have a large and extremely rich body of ancient literature. Unlike the other modern languages of India, Tamil meets each of these requirements. It is extremely old (as old as Latin and older than Arabic); it arose as an entirely independent tradition, with almost no influence from Sanskrit or other languages; and its ancient literature is indescribably vast and rich. It seems strange to me that I should have to write an essay such as this claiming that Tamil is a classical literature — it is akin to claiming that India is a great country or Hinduism is one of the world’s great religions. The status of Tamil as one of the great classical languages of the world is something that is patently obvious to anyone who knows the subject. To deny that Tamil is a classical language is to deny a vital and central part of the greatness and richness of Indian culture.
Added 6 years ago by guest, -9 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
In trying to discern why Tamil has not been recognized as a classical language, I can see only a political reason: there is a fear that if Tamil is selected as a classical language, other Indian languages may claim similar status. This is an unnecessary worry. I am well aware of the richness of the modern Indian languages — I know that they are among the most fecund and productive languages on earth, each having begotten a modern (and often medieval) literature that can stand with any of the major literatures of the world. Yet none of them is a classical language. Like English and the other modern languages of Europe (with the exception of Greek), they rose on preexisting traditions rather late and developed in the second millennium. The fact that Greek is universally recognized as a classical language in Europe does not lead the French or the English to claim classical status for their languages.

Finally, Tamil is one of the primary independent sources of modern Indian culture and tradition. I have written extensively on the influence of a Southern tradition on the Sanskrit poetic tradition. But equally important, the great sacred works of Tamil Hinduism, beginning with the Sangam Anthologies, have undergirded the development of modern Hinduism. Their ideas were taken into the Bhagavata Purana and other texts (in Telugu and Kannada as well as Sanskrit), whence they spread all over India. Tamil has its own works that are considered to be as sacred as the Vedas and that are recited alongside Vedic mantras in the great Vaisnava temples of South India (such as Tirupati). And just as Sanskrit is the source of the modern Indo-Aryan languages, classical Tamil is the source language of modern Tamil and Malayalam. As Sanskrit is the most conservative and least changed of the Indo-Aryan languages, Tamil is the most conservative of the Dravidian languages, the touchstone that linguists must consult to understand the nature and development of Dravidian.

Third, the quality of classical Tamil literature is such that it is fit to stand beside the great literatures of Sanskrit, Greek, Latin, Chinese, Persian and Arabic. The subtlety and profundity of its works, their varied scope (Tamil is the only premodern Indian literature to treat the subaltern extensively), and their universality qualify Tamil to stand as one of the great classical traditions and literatures of the world. Everyone knows the Tirukkural, one of the world’s greatest works on ethics; but this is merely one of a myriad of major and extremely varied works that comprise the Tamil classical tradition. There is not a facet of human existence that is not explored and illuminated by this great literature.

Second, Tamil constitutes the only literary tradition indigenous to India that is not derived from Sanskrit. Indeed, its literature arose before the influence of Sanskrit in the South became strong and so is qualitatively different from anything we have in Sanskrit or other Indian languages. It has its own poetic theory, its own grammatical tradition, its own esthetics, and, above all, a large body of literature that is quite unique. It shows a sort of Indian sensibility that is quite different from anything in Sanskrit or other Indian languages, and it contains its own extremely rich and vast intellectual tradition.

The reasons for this are many; let me consider them one by one. First, Tamil is of considerable antiquity. It predates the literatures of other modern Indian languages by more than a thousand years. Its oldest work, the Tolkappiyam,, contains parts that, judging from the earliest Tamil inscriptions, date back to about 200 BCE. The greatest works of ancient Tamil, the Sangam anthologies and the Pattuppattu, date to the first two centuries of the current era. They are the first great secular body of poetry written in India, predating Kalidasa’s works by two hundred years.

Statement on the Status of Tamil as a Classical Language April 11, 2000 I have been a Professor of Tamil at the University of California, Berkeley, since 1975 and am currently holder of the Tamil Chair at that institution. My degree, which I received in 1970, is in Sanskrit, from Harvard, and my first employment was as a Sanskrit professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1969. Besides Tamil and Sanskrit, I know the classical languages of Latin and Greek and have read extensively in their literatures in the original. I am also well-acquainted with comparative linguistics and the literatures of modern Europe (I know Russian, German, and French and have read extensively in those languages) as well as the literatures of modern India, which, with the exception of Tamil and some Malayalam, I have read in translation. I have spent much time discussing Telugu literature and its tradition with V. Narayanarao, one of the greatest living Telugu scholars, and so I know that tradition especially well. As a long-standing member of a South Asian Studies department, I have also been exposed to the richness of both Hindi literature, and I have read in detail about Mahadevi Varma, Tulsi, and Kabir.

Devaneya Pavanar (ஞா. தேவநேயப் பாவாணர்; Ñānamuttaṉ Tēvanēya Pāvāṇar; also known as G. Devaneyan, Ñanamuttan Tevaneyan; lived 1902–1981), was a prominent Indian Tamil author who wrote over 35 books. Additionally, he was an influential Dravidologist and a staunch proponent of the "Pure Tamil movement" and initiated the Etymological Dictionary Project primarily to bring out the roots of Tamil words and their connections and ramifications. In his 1966 Primary Classical language of the World, he argues that the Tamil language is the "most natural" (iyal-moḻi) and also a proto-world language, being the oldest (tol-moḻi) language of the world, from which all other major languages of the world are derived. He believed that its literature, later called Sangam literature and usually considered to have been written from 200 BCE and 300 CE, spanned a huge period from 10,000 to 5,500 BCE.[1] These datings gain popularity by modern pseudo-historians such as in Graham Hancock's book Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization. Devaneya Pavanar composed many musical pieces (Isaik kalambakam) and many noteworthy poems, including the collection of Venpa. The title Senthamiḻ Selvar was conferred on him by the Tamil Nadu State Government in 1979, and he was also addressed as Moḻi Ñayiru (மொழி ஞாயிறு) "Sun of language

George L. Hart (born c. 1945) is a professor of Tamil language at the University of California, Berkeley. Hart received his Ph.D. in Sanskrit from Harvard University and taught at the University of Wisconsin–Madison before joining the faculty at Berkeley.[1] He has studied Latin and Greek as well as several modern European and Indian languages. Hart is best-known for his translations of several Tamil epics into English and for asserting that Tamil should be classified as a classical language, which is stated clearly in a letter addressed to Professor Maraimalai on April 11, 2000.[1] On September 18, 2004 the Indian Union Cabinet recognized Tamil as a classical language. In 2002, Hart, along with co-author Hank Heifetz, was the recipient of the AAS South Asia Council (SAC) Ramanujan Book Prize. The two produced a volume of translated Tamil poetry entitled Four Hundred Songs of War and Wisdom.

The TELUGU language is great language with the sweetest words. "Desa baasha landu telugu lessa" by kannada king Krishna Devaraya tells the greatness of Telugu. It is also called as "Italian of the east". It is called so because it ends with vowel which gives it a beautiful sound. The greatness of language is in the language itself not the awards are in the most number of speakers. Jai Telugu Talli.

Telugu is the sweetest language i ever heard.... I am a tamilan... I feel telugu is sweet... It's literature is immense... But one should agree tamil is the mother of dravidian language.... If there wasnt no tamil...there is no telugu.... No kannada.. No malayalam.... Telugu is derived with advance linguistics from tamil.... It's just like deriving equation.... from a main equation... The derived equation may hold great importance yet main equation is responsible for its popularity. It's all behind the languages... and not within the people.... So one should not underestimate any language... Every language is unique in its own way. Anyways telugu pronunciation is awesome and better than tamil.

telugu's lipi is not derived from any language it has its own lipi and it is as old as Sanskrit and even this language ruled 3/4 of southern india...it is recognized as the 2 best lipi by international alphabet association...so from all the above consequences we can say telugu is the best language

TELUGU WAS THE FIRST LANGUAGE WHICH GOT A SEPARATE DISTINCTION OF ITS OWN AND WAS SEPARATED FROM SANSKRIT.( the mother of all Inida Languages) Andhra (or Amdhra) was the classic name for Telugu language. If you read Telugu scripts written before 1600 AD, they contain more than 85% of Sanskrit words. That percentage is highest for any Indian language. Not to forget that Sanskrit was not the mother tongue of any tribe in India. The Rg Veda, which is now accepted to be 8000 years old, mentions Andhras as one of the ancient tribes in India.

Malayalam is the language by which ideas can be expressed very effectively. ie,a sentence can be written in malayalam with minor changes in meaning eg.avan manga thinnunnu(he is eating mango) ,avananu manga thinnunnathu(the one eating mango is him ),avan mangayanu thinnunnathu/avan thinnunnath mangayanu(the one which he is eating,is a mango) . The fast developing language in india is malayalam. Most efficient readable script is of malayalam. The voice clarity of spoken form is of malayalam. Anyway malayalam is the best language.

Malayalam is a 1500 year old language. It is spoken in Kerala, Lakshadweep, parts of Andaman Nocobar, Pondicherry, Tamil nadu, and Karnataka. It has orginated from "Sentamizh" which is also the forerunner of Tamil and developed into an independent language with own script. In the process it is influenced by Sanskrit, Persian and Portugese. The script is more like Sanskrit and Hindi which overcomes Tamil which does not have letters for all sounds. At the same time Malayalam does not have "linga" difference so it is easy to use. Between written and spoken forms, it retains the most similarity. It has letters for sounds of all language families, except 'z'.

In ancient days the present bengal is ruled by the Tamizh King Rajendra Chozhan. Kindly see the Rajendra Chozhan's kingdom. That time all parts of India speking only tamizh. After Sanskirit comes Tamizh and sanskirit mingled and create lot of langugae. But the Bengali is born after the Senkiskan attack from Mongolia. Tamizh and Mangoli mingled and create a new language Bengali. Till now the Bengal tribes called Rajmals are lived in the deep forest. They are speaking only tamizh. This is the example for the bengal's own languge in ancient days are tamizh. This history was forgotten by the Indian. Because the Two states (Uttar Predesh and Madya Pradesh people ) only ruling by all indian. So, they insist their own present culture only. India recoganised 18 languges are called National Languge. But in Parliment only two langugaes are speaking. Why??????????/

Marathi is one the sweetest language of India. I do have a gripe against Marathi speakers though. Why do Marathi speakers prefer to speak in Hindi rather than Marathi. First it was Mumbai and Nagpur do even in cities like Pune you hear more Hindi than Marathi. Marathi speakers - Wake up before Marathi becomes extinct because of Hindi. Insist on speaking Marathi, follow the Tamilians and Bengalis.

Thanks to those who said good and correct things about marathi language. According to recent findings, marathi language is originated before 4th century. Many historians think its older than that also.. Also there are more than 11 crore people in the world who speak marathi.. marathi speakers have always proved there importance in the history.. But I dont think this survey makes any difference and gives correct stats abt the rankings.. Most of the people dont even have understanding what is expected over here..

Punjabi Report Abuse
Punjabi (Gurmukhi: ਪੰਜਾਬੀ, Shahmukhi: پنجابی, Devanagari: पंजाबी) is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by inhabitants of the historical Punjab region (north western India and eastern Pakistan). In Pakistan, Punjabi is the most widely spoken native tongue. There are some 104 million (2008) native speakers of the Punjabi language; an estimated 76 million in Pakistan (2008) and 28 million in India (2001), and millions in the USA, UK, Canada and Persian Gulf countries Such As UAE, Kuwait And Saudi Arabia [4] making it the 10th most widely spoken language in the world. Native speakers of the Punjabi language and their respective diaspora are referred to as ethnic Punjabis. The Punjabi language has different dialects, spoken in the different sub-regions of greater Punjab. The Majhi dialect is Punjabi's prestige dialect and shared by both countries. This dialect is considered as textbook Punjabi and is spoken in the historical region of Majha,[5] centralizing in Lahore and Amritsar. Along with the Hindko and Western Pahari languages, Punjabi is unusual among modern Indo-European languages because it is a tonal language.[6][7][8][9]

Prior to 1982, the awards were given for a single work by a writer; since then, the award has been given for a lifetime contribution to Indian literature. As of 2014 most Jananpith award winners, ten have been writing in Hindi followed by eight in Kannada, five each in Bengali and Malayalam, four each in Oriya, Urdu and Marathi and three each in Gujarati and Telugu and two each in Assamese and Tamil.

IF you can respect other languages than your own then there is some logic in the defense. It is like hindu liking his religion and Muslim liking his.Once you learn other language you know the power of that language. e.g Tamil is very deficient in pronunciation of words from other languages as many alphabets are missing; but still has great literature. So is the case with each and every language. I speak Hindi and Marathi very well and like Bengali too. IF I learn other scripts, I can enjoy literature of that language too. We miss so much by finding faults with other languages.

No where in constitution is said bout Hindi as a National language ... and there are much older languages than Hindi .. then why should ppl speak so .. is the Issue ..

Now a days people doesnot speak pure hindi, they all mix urdu words. Not only in many parts of south India but go to Maharastra they speak only in marathi(excluding cities) even u try speaking in hindi. Instead Sanskrit should have been made a national language as most of them are derieved or inspired from it

Yes, why isn't Hindi at the top? The official language in India is Hindi. Almost every Indian has a working knowledge of Hindi! I was researching languages with a friend, and Hindi was the language everybody had to know! It's the official language. It's the 1st language of 30% in India, and in schools, both Hindi and English are usually taught!
