Biardeau : L'Hindouisme : Anthropologie d'une Civilisation,Flammarion.1995.,which roughly translated as "in 1986 on Tamil(scholar)wrote a letter stating that 'what the people without knowing, now sayas Aryan culture and civilization is Dravidian or Tamil, culture andcivilization. The Dravidians had presented to the Aryans a culture andCivilization ready made for their adoption. This needs the presence ofDravidians or Tamils in the northern sub-continent of India.Another French source stated that the area on the right side ofHimalayas when looking east is called Dakshina Desha (Thennadu). Thepeople born in that land are hindus. Jean Varenne : L'Hindouisme DesTextes Sacrés :Encyclopédie des Mystiques - vol iii:Ed.Marie-madeleine Davy ; Petite Bibliothéque Payot. Dakshina Desha isnothing but Then-Nadu.Manickavasagar in one of his hymns has stated 'thennadudaiya sivaneyennattirkum Iraiva Pottri' Here according to this author what he meantby Thennadu is the area located on the south of Himalayas as saivismis stated to have been the religion followed by the people in Indiaduring prehistoric times.Again, the verse 'vadavenkatam then kumari aayidai tamil kurumnallulagam' was read by the author somewhere. An interpretationsuggested is that the poet meant by Vadavenkatam, Himalayas and notTiruppathy Hills. And by the kumari he meant only Kumari Nadu and notcape-camorin. For it would have been suffice to state, "VenkatamKumariAayidai Tamilkurum Nallulagam' if he meant only Tamil Nadu.One more additional interpretation of the statement which the authorread perhaps in Iraiyanaar Agapporulurai, 'Muthal Sangam at Mathuraiand the second Sangam at Kapaadapuram were taken over by Kadal'. Thiscan be interpreted as taken over by the wavelike Aryan invaders, willplace the first Sangam at Mathura( i ) and the second Sangam atPada(li)pu(tra)m. May be padaliputra is a corrupted version ofKapadapuram. May be it is near Cuddalore as revealed recently theexistence of a locality called as Padaliputra. The author is of theopinion the first two sangams existed and only mis-reported in theTamil passages. The place of fist sangam probably at Mathura and thesecond sangam either at Pataliputra or Patna or the new Pataliputra atCuddalore. It is to be noted that the fist sangam was presided by sivawho has burnt tripuram which may be located in present Tripura anortheast Indian state. The archaeologists have to look for Tripuram tocorroborate the theory that Siva was the president of the first sangam.If the assumption that the presence of Dravidians or Tamils innorthern India holds water then a large portion of Sanskrit literatureincluding Vedas, Upanishads etc. are the adapted versions of Tamil orDravidian scriptures. For example Aintiram of Tamil is available asAintira Vyakarna. Mayan is said to be the author of these two works. Heis also said to be the author of several Sanskrit works. He is said tobe a non-aryan.Further during the invasion of Aryans and later Muslims a large numberof telugu and kannada speaking families of artisans like weavers,goldsmiths, silversmiths, coppersmiths, carpenters, silphis and etc.,also fled north India. They are found everywhere scattered throughoutIndia.
