Kannada declared classical language

started by amar shildi 1 year ago http://forums.sulekha.com/forums/coffeehouse/Kannada-declared-classical-language.htm

his will only tarnish the very meaning of the word “CLASSICAL” and will do irrepairable damage to TRUE classcial languages like TAMIL, GREEK, ARABIC etc.Puliyai paarthu poonai soodu pottukondathu

**********************************

(A cat tries to get the status of a tiger by jumping into the fire, hoping it will get the fiery stripes of its rival!)

The situation of Kannada fighting for classical status quoting Tamil is best explained by the above Tamil proverb!

To get classical status, Tamil scholars and poets had to fight for over 40 years with the Indian government, which was only interested in Sanskrit and Hindi for obvious reasons. The Govt. even declared a whole year as Sanskrit year, though Sanskrit is only spoken by about 500 people in the whole country (incidentally it is spoken only in Karnataka, it tells me clearly that one of Kannada’s parents is Sanskrit) but despised Tamil.

It is not enough if a language is 1000 years old it becomes classical. It also should have quality and originality. For example, even though I am not a linguist, I know that only Tamil has the letter “zha” and hundreds of words using that letter. (Malayalam uses that letter but it is only a daughter of Tamizh)

In poetry the beginning words rhyme, the ending words also in some cases. We should be proud that Tamizh is the only language in the world which has such type of rhyming scheme. It is a shame that ONLY after a foreigner, Dr.George Hart made it clear that of the modern, living Indian languages, Tamizh and Tamizh only can claim classical status, that Indian Government announced that it is classical.

Now the Kannadigas’ pride has been badly hurt, and although many of them were earlier telling that a living language can never be classical, now they say the Kannada should be made classical. This is hypocrisy.

They try to invent new conditions like Sahitya awards etc to “make” Kannada classical!

Kannada can in no way stand before Tamil. Even with the existing literature, Tamil literature surpasses Kannada in quantity and quality. We do know that thousands of other Tamil literary works have been destroyed by nature, and others in the form of olaichuvadi is being destroyed by insects and cockroaches, thanks to the lack of funds by Indian government, because funds are used to preserve Hindi and Sanskrit! Kannada no doubt is sweet and rich, but it can in no way compare with Tamil.

If Kannada is compared to the Moon, it derives its greatness only from Tamil, the Sun.

I happen to read arguments posed by some Kannada scholars in the site “totalkannada.com” and couldn’t stop laughing. One of them argues that “Palli” is a Kannada word. It is a know fact that Kannada derives many of its words from Tamil by replacing “pa” with “ha”. Hence palli is halli, peyar, is hesaru, pugai is hogai, paal is haal.

Even now we let only foreign countries approve our achievements.

The following article by a U.S. linguist will drive home the point to all Indians that TAMIL and

TAMIL alone can be the living Indian classical language. (There are only 5 other such classical languages. Even Arabic is younger than Tamil. When it is declared classical, why not her elder sister?.. Tamil) Click below or cut and paste in your browser… Kannadigas who want classical stauts for Kannada, especially!

  1. here is a link to recent 2003 Harvard publication “Early Tamil Epigraphy” authored by Iravatam Mahadev, which spotlights on kannada’s influence on tamil.

  2. One more link on book ‘Early Tamil Epigraphy’

    http://www.hinduonnet.com/lr/2003/08/03/stories/2003080300280400.htm
    ————————————–
    Some of the significant observations made by the author in the “Language” chapter are, that in the Inscriptions, (1) there are no finite verbs (2) present tense is totally absent and (3) the occurrence of rare grammatical morphemes, like -a, functioning as accusative case suffix, genitive suffix and as genitive case suffix, which is not attested elsewhere in Tamil but is found in Old Kannada as genitive suffix.

    Mahadevan has brought to light in this work the influence of Old Kannada on Tamil-Br-ahm-i inscriptions from a period (Second Century B.C. to Fourth Century A.D.) anterior to the earliest Kannada inscriptions and literature. This is a very interesting observation he has made on the basis of lexical and grammatical usages showing the influence of Old Kannada.

    “Erme” in Old Kannada means “buffalo”, and the Mysore region came to be known later as “mahisha-ma.ndala” (`the land of buffaloes’ in Sanskrit). In a Tamil- Br-ahm-i inscription, there is reference to “erumin-a.tu”, which would be in literary Tamil “erumainadu”. In Akan-a-n-u-ru, an important Sangam work, “erumai uran” and “erumain-a.tu” find mention in three poems written by Mamulanar and Nakkirar. “Ka.vuti” was a personal name of a Jaina nun, belonging to Mysore, who was gifted a resting place by “I.layar”. I.layar belonged to the martial race in the Tulu region. It looks like “ka.vuti’ could also be a variant of `gavu.da,’ the name strikingly similar to `Kavundhi Adigal,’ a Jaina nun, and an important character in Tamil epic Cilappatik-aram (Fifth Century A.D.) The author of this great work was a Jaina monk and said to be a C-era prince.

Kannada is 1200 years old with Kavirajamarga being acknowledged as the first ever kannada literature……and tamil’s Tirukkural is 2500 years old, confirmed by every available evidence……………I suggest onething, you being born as a kannada is not your fault; it is your past sins.

  5. Mr Shashikumar,

    Tamil is from Brahmi and is not from the so called old-kannada. Don’t keep insisting on wrong information and hide the truth. (like politicians LOL).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamil_Brahmi

    Kannada has been given a classical status after confirming that it is as old as tamil. For your kind information that doesn’t mean that Tamil came from Kannada.Educate your self before you claim something. Tamil is given a classical status by Gov. of India in mid 2004 even before Kannada (i believe in 2008).

    Giving classical status is not fun.

  7. The above wikipedia article says that the Tamil Language origin is from Tamil Brahim and just shows few side by side comparisons between Asokan Brahmi,Early Tamil Brahmi,later Tamil Brahmi and Modern Tamil.

    If you see the words you will notice that Modern Tamil is no where near Later Tamil Brahmi which your scholars are trying to claim which is laughable.And that same guy Mahadevan says that Kannada has influenced Tamil.So it seems like that is not digestable by you tamils.

    “NO ITS NOT US KANNADIGAS WHO ARE RESORTING TO PROPAGANDA BUT ITS INFACT YOU GUYS WHO HAVE HIJACKED THE WHOLE LINGUISTIC RESEARCH/BUREAUCRACY IN INDIA BY LYING/PROPAGANDA AND TO SPREAD YOUR LANGUAGE,EVERYBODY KNOWS HOW YOU TAMILS ARE,JUST SHOW A FINGER TO A TAMIL THEY WILL SWALLOW THE WHOLE HAND.(LMAO)”

      Hey,you kannada brothers.First,understand the truth,Tamil is not just a language but rather it is a feeling of mankind as a whole. Tamil is the mother and all the other dravidian languages are it daughters. Tamil can stand alone by just using its own words,but neither telugu nor kannada can. Please,stop bullshitting by telling tamil is a language which is derived from other language. But no one can deny the fact that kannada is a language which is derived.George L. Hart says,”I say this not because I wish to show my erudition, but rather to establish my fitness for judging whether a literature is classical. Let me state unequivocally that, by any criteria one may choose, Tamil is one of the great classical literatures and traditions of the world.”.please remember,George L. Hart is not a roadside scoundrel but rather he is a proffessor who is working in BERKELEYS.He also said,”In trying to discern why Tamil has not been recognized as a classical language, I can see only a political reason: there is a fear that if Tamil is selected as a classical language, other Indian languages may claim similar status.”.Even french is not requesting for a classical language why are you people bothered. You people always wanned to degrade Tamil by competing for unnecessary things.
      To deny that Tamil is a classical language is to deny a vital and central part of the greatness and richness of Indian culture.

        Even kannada can do that. finding other language words in kannada is the evidense that we live in hormony with anyone and can accept good thing and also accept normal thing for good relation with other language speakers.

      • How can kannada stand on its own?

        Namaskaram can be said in Tamil as Vanakam
        What is the Kannada word for Namaskaram
        Dont be stupid in saying that Kannada can stand on its own and that Tamil originated from Hale Kannada. Be logic in your argument, dont be guided by emotions.

  11. Kannada got the status of classical by applying political pressure and forcing the Govt, threatening with suicide and bandh etc.
    A language which doesnt have its own word for “language”, let alone one for “classical” doesnt in the least deserve the coveted classical status which only, in the words of the neutral linguist Dr.George Hart, “only TAMIL deserves.”
    If you see the grammar text on Kannada you will find most of the grammar words like noun, verb etc are all borrowed from Sanskrit.
    Its script is borrowed from Telugu.
    Most of the other common words are coined from Tamil by replacing “pa” with “ha”
    It can at the best be called as a dialect of Tamil.

    Comment by Ram chandran | September 26, 2009 | Reply

    • I am wondering how Kannada got that status.

      All the Indian languages except Tamil will stumble if Sanskrit is removed from them.

      Tamil can withstand without Sanskrit more than any other Indian language could. This is logically understood and why did the Govt. of India did not understand this before declaring a status.

      You remove Sanskrit words completely from Kannada, can you frame a single sentence??

      Atleast a few sentences could be framed from pure Tamil (thooya Tamil) without Sanskrit influence.

      Of course truth is truth whether recognized or not.

      • In Tamil Sorry.,, how pronounce that one is it Tamizh or Tamil please correct your verbal and also write what r u speaking. In Kannada there may be borrowing of the Sanskrit but no body know the sanskrit is the oldest and also which is originated in India or not. what i think is sanskrit is the language which is come to INDIA with the arrival of Aryans. Before the Aryans invaded INDIA there are Dravidian Languages. I will claim Kannada is also as old as Tamil (Tamizh). IN Kannada we can write every thing which we could hear. even the sounds of nature, birds we can write in words and sentence where as in Tamil (Tamizh) no one can write these words. Kannada Script is born with the true sounds of nature. We Kannadigas can speak fluently and also without any miss spelling or pronounciation in any languages where as Tamilians can not speak all other languages perfectly. they used to only wango, pongo.

  12. There was a case pending filed by a citizen of this great country against allotting classical status to Kannada.
    This case has been unjustly overlooked.
    What sort of a country is this where human rights are violated?
    How can Kannada which doesnt even have its own word for “language” get classical language status?
    It is not spread outside India like Tamil.
    Tamil is the oldest living language… there is evidence of trade with ancient egypt.
    The very word Dravida is a corruption of the word Tamila as it was modified by the Greeks.
    Tamila.. Tamida.. Tavida… Travida….Dravida
    There is no literary work in Kannada equal to Thirukkural.
    Out of jealousy they have not opened the statue of the author of Thirukkural.. Thiruvalluvar

  13. hello everyone,
    My dear kannada brothers and sisters. I had a very secular mindset and am not a linguistic indl. But after observing these tamil bastards for so many yrs i’ve decided to do my bit. let me give some details about these assholes:

    1. Cry babies: these assholes are crybabies of the highest order. They know only one thing, cry to death, spread legs for those who can do them a favour, try and make false claims about their caste, religion, language and all shit which they dont deserve.

    2. hypocrites and parasites: they dont have a very firm culture and thats y they are trying to strngthen. just think why would anyone want a classical language status for their mother tongue(originated from kannada) and not want a calassical status from which they have originated.

    3. tamil is fuckall of a language. PPlclaim that it has many letters and what not. Why do they have it, because when the languages in this world originated everybody used their own brains and developed their languages, but these so called tamil cunts were busy stealing methods, designs and procedures of develepoing their language.

    4. Jealousy: these ppl are illiterate and from an uncivilised culture and thats why they are jealous of anybody elses progress. they are dependent on un in somany ways. water, the day we kannadigas stop providing water to them, they die a dogs death. the day we kick all these tambis out of our state millions of their families will die of starvation.

    we kannadigas have to be united and very strong against such fools. We are from a very decent, literate, hardworking and a great legacy. It is because of our magnamity that these assholes are surviving. we have to understand this and the rest will get in line. Can anybody tell me why this fucking statue of thiruvalluvar was allowed to unveil in bangalore? why are these fucking bastards talking in tamil in karnataka and never spk kannada though they know it? have we ever seen any of these abnoxious tamilians in tami Nadu speaking in kannada to a kannadiga? Why are we accepting all this shit. Protest. rebel and detroy symbols of tamil in karnataka and everything will follow. I’m determined to do my bit. i need working hands for me who have a pride for their for kannada. lets kick them out and show them where they belong

    jai karnataka

  14. Dear Brothers & Sisters of Kannada & Tamil Nadu

    Looks like most of you are arguing with emotions without trying to put forward reason or logic.

    Following is my unbiased analysis, and all information is taken from the Wikipedia sections for “Kannada language” and “Tamil language”:

    a) Earliest signs of when the languages were used:
    Kannada (Purva Halegannada): Has a history of over 2000 years. The Ashoka rock edict found at Brahmagiri (dated to 230 BC) has been “suggested” (not confirmed) to contain “a” word in identifiable Kannada

    Tamil: Spoken around the third millennium BC.

    b) When were the languages “attested” (i.e. confirmed) epigraphically ?
    Kannada (Purva Halegannada): Mid first-millennium CE
    Tamil: Shortly after 3rd Century BC

    b) When did the written traditions begin?
    Kannada: 5th to 6th century CE, when it was used for administrative purposes
    Tamil: Short inscriptions from around the 2nd century BCE were found in caves and on pottery. Tolkāppiyam, an early work on Tamil grammar and poetics, whose oldest layers could be as old as the first century BC.

    So it looks to me that Tamil was well under development for over 300-700 years when Kannada came into being. Kannadiga brothers, this is not meant to offend you – I’m just stating the facts from wiki sites. So before you jump on your tamil brothers, get the facts correct.

    Tamil brothers, stop trying to force your superior thoughts over our Kannada brothers. Being the first language to claim “classical” status does not mean any shit. And don’t blindly punch your votes for politicians who claim to support tamil’s development. Especially, Mu.Ka, Ramadoss etc. You won’t be surprised to know that Anbumani’s children enrolled in schools in Delhi where Tamil was not being taught – despite the fact that there were a couple of schools in the area that had the option of taking Tamil as the second language. So much for “tamil en peychhu, tamil en moochu”.

  20. I cant stop laughing by looking at these comments here…I know that tamil and kannada never been friends…and to talk abt facts etc we were not there in BC or early AD centuries to witness the facts…We read things and decide that it’s the truth. We have a wrong notion that if the language is great then we(people) are great. But the fact is that it’s the greatness of those languages and not of us. We, by debating on such topics as mentioned above are proving that we dont desrve to be speaking these languages. Think abt it, both lanuguages are great, developed on their own and very matured. But are we matured enough to understand the sweetness of these languages? I myself know that i know 5% of kannada because its an ocean. I know am at fault because i never made any effort to contribute towards it. I am sure there are many ppl in tamil nadu who have nt contributed towards tamil development. But still we talk as if we’ve created these languages.

    Again pls understand, these languages are great because THEY ARE GREAT. No one can change that by making some stupid statements. It’s us who need to understand that and change our mindset. None of us make an effort to learn other languages like telugu, malayalam, marathi etc. But we think we are great if we learn german, french etc.

    Bottomline is if you are keen in some language thene you try to learn other languages and only then you will understand how big the world is.

    Please stop fighting on these petty topics, it makes us look cheap, immature and introverts. I hope atleast few ppl agree with me.

  21. I forgot to mention one thing though…ofcourse we were making fun of ourselves by talking abt these languages…but i must say that tamils as far as i hve seen are intruding characters from birth. See bangalore today! you will understand.

    Sometime back some tamil told me that bangalore is in tamil nadu!! I thought the joke of the millanium. I mean i know that tamilnadu has tough conditions like poverty, very hot climate, illitracy etc. But that doesnt really mean that you can claim something as yours when it’s not!

    Another thing they are proud of is rajani kanth. i know that they always need a god father. but rajani kanth is from karnataka. he moved to tamil later on which we never regret because we know what he is! anyway thats a different story. but my humble request is if you cant leave bangalore then dont say that it’s in tamilnadu. It’s dangerous for your health.

  29. Kannada being one of the Dravidian languages has emerged from the Moola (original) Dravida language. Both Tamil and Kannada are evolved from a common source. References to Karnataka are found in the great epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata; Ptolemy, a Greek astronomer and geographer (2nd century BC) in his works makes the mention of several towns and ports such as Kalligere, Badaami and Mudugal having Kannada names. Renowned research scholar Prof. T S Venkannaiah has said that early Buddhists wrote classical Kannada literature; unfortunately those works are not available now. In ‘Early Tamil Epigraphy’ (a 2003 Harvard publication) there is a reference that Tamil edicts and epigraphy had some Kannada influence on them in the years of 3rd century B.C. The antiquity of Kannada is unquestionable.

  30. I invite you to read the following blog”
    http://thought-lab.blogspot.in/2008/11/why-only-tamil-deserves-classical.html
    If anything this blog proves 2 things: One, each person has his own yardstick for defining and measuring class or classicism (this author has chosen antiquity as a measure of classicism). Two, Tamil’s antiquity is unquestionable.
    In our efforts to achieve classical status to our languages, are we insulting the very objective of language – i.e. to bridge gaps between hearts and minds?

  32. Yes, Tamil is class, Tamilian is class, Tamil culture is class, Tamil towns are class apart….!!!!!!!!!!! Can anyone on earth believe this non-sense even in their wildest dreams?. Yuck… look at Chennai- so called big city of TN.
    If there is a competition for biggest toilet in the world, the clear winner would be Chennai. What class u r talking abt?.
    Who has the copyright for creation of Bangalore’s slums?.. it is this same – super class Tamils. The most dirtiest creature in entire universe – obvious and easy answer – Tamilian. Look at the other side of spectrum.
    Who changed India’s image as “Snake charmer’s country”- Easy answer- Karnataka, Kannadigas.
    Karnataka’s Icons: Narayanamurthy, Sudha Murthy, Nandan Nilekani, Gopinath, KIran Mazumdar, Vijay mallya, Dr.Devi shetty
    Icons of Tamil Nau??? – Rajanikanth, Karunanidhi, Jayalalitha.

  34. World’s best from Tamil Nadu – Dr.Radhakrishnan,Dr.Abdul Kalam,Dr.Sir C.V.Raman,Dr.Ramanujan,Dr.Vishwanath Anand,………….I am a proud Indian first.Then I am a proud Tamilian for 1000s of reasons because of our mother tongue.First kannadigas must be explained about all languages,what is a classical language,about all classical languages in the world,the reasons and criteria for why they have been given that status,the age of these languages…..Then automatically ignorant and fanatical kannadigas will come to know the truth and facts where their language stands in all these aspects.There is no kanada word for language.They say as basha which is hindi.Gaadi for vehicle……Kannada is made up of sanskrit,hindi,telugu,english,tamil………….Kannada should not be given that status.politicians did that. I am an Indian.I can go and settle anywhere in India.Nobody can question anybody.All places belong to GOD.ignorant people only say my state,my place,my water,my river.my ……….We tamils accept all people from all over the world.we don’t see partiality in mingling and helping each other.spirituality was born in tamil nadu and spread to all parts of india and the world.First these prejidiced kannadigas should know some facts about all languages and then they will shut their their mouths.Tamil is a divine language.Tamilis nort going to get affected if a joke like kannada wasgiven the classical status.Remember only language in india which doesn’t have influence of the sanskrit.All other indian languages will not be there if sanskrit words are removed.If kannadigas of so proud fanatically about their mixture language kannada,we tamils are purely proud of our language’s richness,our culture,sprituality,traditions,food,hindu scripturs in tamil,temples,architecture,science,siddha medicine……..Long Live Tamil,Long Live India.
