The study of Puranas and ancient Tamil literature is exciting.
Thanks to the educational system introduced by the British, we have been trained to take Indian history as legends and figment of imagination.
Till the advent of Internet we had no means of checking whether what is mentioned in Indian texts is fact or fiction.
Now resources are available in the Internet, not only in English but in other languages as well.
If one cares to check these resources one would find corroboration of Indian Texts.
Astro dating, linguistics, anthropology, archeology, Carbon dating, Infrared dating resources are aplenty to validate Indian texts.
Cross referencing Indian texts with Foreign authors,right from Plato,Thucycides is possible.
Some interesting facts about ancient Indian history emerge.
There was Sanatana Dharma of India which preceded all civilizations.
It was present throughout the world.
The current date assigned to Rig Veda, Hinduism as 5000 BC is no longer valid as Sanatana Dharma goes back possibly by million years!
Another curious fact is the presence of Dravidas in the south of Vindhya ranges.
This civilization quotes Vedas and they quote Tamil,a Dravidian culture.
Enough material is available to prove that the Dravidian Kings were the forerunners of Sanatana Dharma and the first Man Manu was a Dravidian King.
The Cholas were cousins of Ikshvaku Dynasty,by virtue of Manu’s daughter having been Married to a,Chola King.
Tamil kings,Chera,Chola and Pandyas were respected by the kings from the region where Sanatana Dharma was flourishing.
Three kings,Aryavarman,Ariyappadaikadantha Neduncheralaathan and Imayavarmban Neduncheralaathan invaded North India and settles people there.
One can find Brahui,a Dravidian language is found in Balochisthan and Afghanisthan even today.
Tamil is spoken among the Cameroonians even today.
Traces of Tamil culture is found among Hitties,Elamites,Aztecs and Mayans.
The Home of Tamils ,Lemuria is 230 million years old and Himalayas was not even formed then.
Himalayas were formed about 70 million years ago.
The issues that confounds are,
Who influenced whom,Sanatana Dharma, Tamil or is it the other way around?
If Dravidians/languages are found throughout the world and especially in the North of India,how come they were in South ,when did they move and why.
What was lying in the north of Vengadam,Seshachalam hills,the northern boundary of Lemuria between 230 million years ago and 70 million years ago when Himalayas was formed?
One finds details of Shiva in Lemuria, but only limited information about him in Sanatana Dharma,that too relating to Himalayas and His marrying Uma.
I am searching ,through I have written articles on these issues.
To unravel this one has to check the Kings List of Tamil Nadu.
There are references in foreign sources and Puranas about these Prehistoric kings and I intend finding out the Truth.
For instance, Chera king was named as Aryavarman and the term varma is of Sanatana Dharma origin where the Kshtriyas,Kings use Varma as surnames.
This king is mentioned in Iranian legends!
I had written on Tamil Kings List from 404 BC,where I have covered Cheras and later Cholas.
I am yet to write on Pandyas.
Herebelow I provide list of Tamil Kings from
