I have been writing on the antiquity of Sanatana Dharma and Tamil and that they are between Thirty thousand to a Million years old.
This I have been researching for the past nine years and have published articles based on credible sources from around the world, from different languages, archeoanthropology, archaeology, Astronomy, Infrared dating, Plate tectonics, World literature, Etymology, Cultural similarities between various races, customs.
The present date assigned to Rig Veda is 5114 BC and Tamil about 3000 BC. This, I found to be incorrect and based on my research from credible sources I suggested that Tamil is one Million years old and Vedas, as they are quoted by ancient Tamil, was earlier to Tamil. But the Vedas quite Tamil!
So I took the position that both Tamil and Vedas are so old that it is impossible for me to find out which one was earlier :Both of them are at least million years old.
Despite research by scholars, both from India and abroad, efforts have been made by the influential to suppress the evidence or call these studies as unscientific.
I have a follower of this blog, who is an archaeologist who was denied permission to dig at Kurukshetra, because she was following a lead from me to find artifacts from Kurukshetra which would yield proof for Mahabharatha War. When I talked to the gentleman at Delhi, who was with the archeology department, who incidentally is a follower of Ramani’s blog, told me that he has oral instructions not to permit archaeological studies which might yield evidence that might be older than 5000Years!
However thanks to Internet, one can not easily hide facts for long. A finding by archaeologists indicating the Antiquity of Tamil was not made available or publicised. Thanks to Internet, information can not be suppressed. The information was published in the Science in 2011
. Lamenting this I wrote an article three years ago about the study by a team of archeologists on a site near Chennai about the antiquity of Tamils. Now the findings of these archaeologists have been published in Nature, the prestigious magazine for research. Here it is. ‘
The discovery, described in Nature on Wednesday, pushes back the start of what’s called the Middle Paleolithic culture in the region by more than a hundred thousand years. That, in turn, could reshape how scientists view the global spread of hominins—humans and their ancient relatives—before modern humans migrated out of Africa some 60,000 years ago.
The new evidence suggests that a Middle Palaeolithic culture was present in India around 385,000 years ago — roughly the same time that it is known to have developed in Africa and in Europe. Middle Palaeolithic period is considered an Millionimportant
cultural phase associated with modern humans and Neanderthals as well as other archaic hominins. Stone tools of this period are used by scientists as proxy for studies of early human behaviour.
The prehistoric stone tools excavated from Attirampakkam village about 60 kilometers from Chennai push back the period when populations with a Middle Palaeolithic culture may have inhabited India. The new study appeared in international scientific journal Nature on Wednesday. (31 January, 2018.)

‘ My article on this, three years ago. ‘
I posted an article that the Tamils lived around 74,000 years ago and that too near Chennai.
I forgot to provide the Link.
Scroll down for Video.
This led to the speculation that I have been providing information not backed up by facts.
Readers of this site know well that I never post information without evidence nor providing information without authentic links.
I forgot in the above case.
