    This sunken continent (Kumari Kandam) is the homeland of Tamils. Sri Lanka is a remnant of that continent. Sinhalese are invaders from North India.

    [Kumari Kandam (-2965 -3009 -2990 -2992 -3007 -2965 -3021 -2965 -2979 -3021 -2975 -2990 -3021 Kumarikka-7751 -7789 am) is the name of a legendary sunken landmass said to have been located to the south of present-day Kanyakumari District at the southern tip of India in the Indian Ocean. The legend assigns the continent and its final submergence an antiquity ranging in tens of thousands of years

    The Legend in Tamil Literature

    There are scattered references in Sangam literature, such as Kalittokai 104, to how the sea took the land of the Pandiyan kings, upon which they conquered new lands to replace those they had lost.[5] There are also references to the rivers Pahruli and Kumari, that are said to have flowed in a now-submerged land.[6] The Silappadhikaram, a 5th century epic, stating that the `cruel sea` took the Pandiyan land that lay between the rivers Pahruli and the many-mountained banks of the Kumari, to replace which the Pandiyan king conquered lands belonging to the Chola and Chera kings (Maturaikkandam, verses 17-22). Adiyarkkunallar, a 12th century commentator on the epic, explains this reference by saying that there was once a land to the south of the present-day Kanyakumari , which stretched for 700 kavatams from the Pahruli river in the north to the Kumari river in the south.

    This land was divided into 49 nadu, or territories, which he names as seven coconut territories (elutenga natu), seven Madurai territories (elumaturai natu), seven old sandy territories (elumunpalai natu), seven new sandy territories (elupinpalai natu), seven mountain territories (elukunra natu), seven eastern coastal territories (elukunakarai natu) and seven dwarf-palm territories (elukurumpanai natu). All these lands, he says, together with the many-mountained land that began with KumariKollam, with forests and habitations, were submerged by the sea.[6]. Two of these Nadus or territories were supposedly parts of present-day Kollam and Kanyakumari districts.

    [They believe it could be a legendary lost island closely linked to the culture and history of Sri Lankan people. ]

    Mmmm.. There is no such a thing in the Mahawamsa, however there is lot of references to this sunken land in the Sangam literrature. Since 4 years, I`m telling this.. I know for sure that it is not an imaginary story.

    It is the homeland of the Tamil people, the ancient Pandyan kingdom.

    Glad to see that scientists read my postings :))

    I was saying that they should explore the oceans in the Indian ocean, specially around Sri Lanka only few years ago, and they did it !

    Now, this confirms that the Sri Lankan anti-Tamil racists, who said that we invaded `their` lands in the 13th century were wrong from the beginning ! Irony of the story , there is no mention in the Mahawamsa, but only in the Sangam literrature..... For sure, and slowly, the whole Truth will come out from the sea.

    Sad story, Tamils are made second class citizens , put in army controlled camps, live in huts in their homeland, and are daily being shelled by the Sri Lankan army who want subjugate the Tamils !

    I will never forgive Sri Lanka , specially the whole Sinhala community for letting this massacre with impunity, no condemnation.

    The Sinhala community, abroad and in the island, is silent. Their silent is highly symbolic. In the name of finishing off LTTE, thousands of innocent children, babies, eldery persons, mothers and fathers have been killed. Worst, they justify the killings of innocents saying that LTTE are keeping them as human shield.

    Since 58, the Tamil community in Sri Lanka is being erased - destroyed by the majority , be it physically or culturally.

    I have faith in the universal judge, whose Laws are Karma and Dharma. Expect a massive destruction in Sri Lanka, in the near future, that`s the only thing I can predict. I bet another natural catastrophe will hit Sri Lanka.

    Nice article Emperor.

    Weldone. Keep it up. Try to form once a gain LTTE but will never happen again. Tamil history is not much older than Sinhala history.
