Thanks to internet,one is able to collate information from various sources, especially from foreign authors,ehile researching the History of India.
Hitherto,Indian history has been dated to 5114,this date being assigned to the Rig Veda.
Researches and archeological studies have enabled one to push this date and othet dates pertaining to India.
Arikkamedu,Adhichanallur,Mangulam, Poompuhar,Thirukkoilur and a host of other sites including the one near Chennai,which is dated about a Million years ago,prove the antiquity of Tamils and Hinduism.
As these facts emerge,what has hitherto been assumed to be legends and stories are now being accepted as historical facts.
For instance,Silappadikaaram,one of the Five Epics in Tamil,an ancient language of India,was dated around 300 BC.
But recent excavation of Poompuhar off the coast of Tamil Nadu has been dated now around 11,500 years ago.
The reference to Tamil kings found in Silappadikaaram has to be,therfore needs revision.
The Pandya kings’dates need revision.
- The Sanskrit texts and Sangam literature mention that the Chera king Udiyan Chearalaathan fed both Pandava and Kaurava armies during the Mahabharata battle.
- Sarangadwaja,also called Makarathwaja,A Pandyan king,fathet of Madurai Meenakshi fought on the side of Pandavas in Mahabharata.
- And another Chera kind Palyagasalai Mudukudumi Perivazhuthi’s date need revision.
- His grandfather,Nedunchezhiyan is the Pandya king mentioned in Silappadikaaram.
If the city where the action in Silappadikaaram took place,as found in Poompuhar,is now dated around 11,000 years,how can one assign 300 BC to the Grandson of the king in Silappadikaaram,as 300BC?
And Silappadikaaram st 600 BC?
His date ,now assigned at 300 BC may be assigned around 11,000 years ago.
And Sangam literature dates may also be pushed back to the same period.
And,in the process,the lie that Tamils were against Sanatana Dharma is nailed for Peruvazhuthi issued coins with Vedic Symbols.
The name Palyagasalai Mudukudumi Peruvazhuthi means the ‘King who performed Many Yagnyas and had sported a Tuft:
‘Another series of coins, all made of copper and found near Madurai, have the fish symbol on the reverse and among other symbols on the obverse, have the legend Peruvaluthi written in the Tamil-Brahmi script. They have been assigned a date of around 200 BCE and are considered to have been issued by the Pandyan king Peruvaluthi. These coins are represent some of the few instances where the names of Sangam kings appear in non-literary sources.
Sangam literature mentions the importance attached to Vedic sacrifices by Tamil kings including the Pandyan Mudukudumi Peruvaludhi.
This fact is also corroborated by the discovery of several Pandyan coins that are referred to as the Vedic sacrifice series. These coins have symbols on their obverse that depict the sacrifices, such as a horse tied to the yuba-stambha, a yagna kunta and a nandhipada’
