Scholars see Telugu, Mesopotamia link

Miss. Samyuktha Kooniah, M.A.(Ph.D),discovered the forgotten and the missing link between Telmun and Andhra Pradesh In the year 1990,In Bahrain (Arabian-Gulf),Since then she is working very hard to bring it to light. and she says -

" I am glad to share my work with the world so that the Telugu language gets its right-full place in history,and I strongly condemn Intellectual theft and stealers like Dr.Sanganabatla Narasiah. To share knowledge is power , to steal it is demeaning."

Karimnagar, Feb. 4:
Hurt by the Centre’s refusal to grant ancient language status to Telugu, renowned scholars and historians have presented new evidence to prove that the language is at least 4,000 years old. The overlooked historical nuggets brought out by scholars would give added strength to the agitation by literary organisations and political parties to achieve ancient language status for Telugu.

Both Tamil and Sanskrit had recently been conferred ancient language status by the Union government. Apparently realising that this had hurt people’s pride, the State government has decided to collect all relevant manuscripts to stake a similar claim for Telugu. Historians and literary scholars have made the government’s job easier by drawing attention to forgotten facts that prove the long history of the language.

Though conventionally Telugu is supposed to date back to the 11th century AD, scholars say that there is enough evidence to prove that it is thousands of years old.

“Experts like Edward Thomas had established the link between Dravidian, Brahmi and Cuneiform scripts,” he said. “Prof. James Edgar Swain had traced the trade ties that flourished between the Telmun region in India and the Babylonian and Assyrian kingdoms in Mesopotamia region since 300 BC.” Sumerians claimed to be Telimans who had migrated from the Telivaha river banks. References made in the Buddhist epic Sheravaniya about Telivaha river lend credence to the belief that the river was Godavari.

“This proves that Telimans hailed from the region spread along the Godavari river in the Telugu heartland,” he said. Excavations at Ur city in Mesopotamia and discovery of primitive Telugu words such as Abba, Ser and Aqqu in the cuneiform tablets corroborated this theory.

The Telimans who migrated from the Godavari belt carried with them another Dravidian language, Brahui. The language, similar to Telugu, is prevalent among migrant communities in the borders of Pakistan and Afghanistan, he said.

Similarity of megalithic graveyards unearthed during excavations at Markuk of Manjeera valley with burial sites discovered at Kirkuk in Iraq substantiated the fact that Sumerians hailed from “Telugu land” and the language spread overseas thousands of years ago, he contended.

According to scholars, the criterion adopted by the Centre in granting the status was unfair. Instead of depending on manuscripts alone, the government should take a more comprehensive view, they feel.

Telangana Writer’s Forum District President D. Narahari Acharya said that the Centre should also peruse ancient inscriptions found at at Godisala, Sanigaram and other places which gave valuable information on the evolution of Telugu script. Meanwhile, the Telugu Desam is also planning to spearhead a movement to achieve ancient language status for Telugu.

Yes! Telugu has that status. Belonging to the Central branch of the Dravidian family, Telugu has had a totally independent development, with later influence from Sanskrit. It is a super-lingua, a bridge between the Aryan and Dravidian tongues, and the sweetest among them all.

Truth and facts always prevail - . If you are right n knows the wisdom thruth - no one is standing your way , get in to the ring and prove your claim if not stay a side and dont bother. - besides today there are more then 1200 languages literaly spoken in India hence can anyone said these much languages present in the ancient times. One , needs to talk with tangible evidences , solid proofs on internationaly agreed platform by professional scholars in anthropology and archeology science. Theories, predictions , asssumpiton , views, thoughts and other intangible facts are not feasable and viable to get or to be entertained in international standards. eg: Tamil has 72 thousand rich poems by 420 poets in the sangam age 300 BCE - still preserved in palm leaves. - that has became the world heritage.

The only languge in south India that comes close to Tamil in modern Historical legacy is kannada.

No one can change history - and no one can hide or ignore truths.

I found the statement which said that the government not granting Telugu ancient language status, according to the author, has "hurt the pride" of Telugus. How stupid is that? Almost as if Telugu has to be granted ancient language status, because Telugu people are sad and disappointed.just because.

I am an Eelam Tamil and my parents always told me that Telugu was a beautiful language. So is Kannada and all Dravidian languages in general. Tamil, Telugu, Kannada were all once dialects of the same language before they split off from each other and all four states of South India, as well as Tamil Eelam are brothers and sisters. It would be nice however, if South Indians reciprocated our feelings of kinship and did something about the genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka though ...

In the text you had put Arabian-Gulf which should be and is Persian Gulf. There is no such thing as an Arabian Gulf.
You can talk of the Arabian Sea, but due to historical evidence and documents in the UN, the Persian Gulf has always been, is and will remain the Persian gulf.

మీ కృషి తెలుగు భాషకి బహుదా శ్లాఘనీయము. చాలా బాగుంది. మీ బ్లాగులో చాలా విషయాలు ఉన్నాయి సంతోషము.
ఇక నా గురించి భాగవతం గణనోపాఖ్యానం అని ఒక పని పెట్టుకొని చేసుకుంచున్నాను వివరాలు పోతన తెలుగు భాగవతం అని ఒక బ్లాగ్ స్పాట్ లో ప్రచురించాను

తెలుగు లో రిపోర్టులు, ఛార్టులు చేసుకోడానికి వీలు ఉన్నది ఈ దత్తై యందు. దీని కోసం పూర్తి సమయం కేటాయించాల్సి వస్తోంది. తెలుగు SSLC తరువాత చదివినది లేదు
అయినా సాహసము చేస్తున్నాను. అందుచేత హైదరాబాదు లోని విశ్వవిద్యాలయాలు పరిశోధనాంశముగా ఇచ్చుటకు వీలుకాదుట.
