    Some tamil words

    Dr. R. Mathivanan deciphered the sindhy valley script and found hundreds of words of tamil. He came to the conclusion that the script is ancient tamil script.

    Some of the words are

    Avvan, Yanan, aranan, sanan, anthan,panan,enappan,kavachan,
    kalaiyan etc.

    He peculiarly noticed the words of gender difference.

    thangan(thangai), nangan(nangai), avvan(avvai), Kannagan(kannagi)

    The tamil words (sindhy valley)

    saman,thaman,thathan,saththan,nanthan,Eethan, arayan,arasan,
    oman,man,manan,Kovan etc. are

    now in north paly languages as

    samanlal,thaman(sindhi), sunilTHATH,Seit(shetty),nandalal, Eththan(sindhi), rai or rao, raj or raja, oman(malayalam),man, govindhu or gopi respectively.

    Some words

    Dear RR,

    I don't know exacty what is the intension behind your curiosity regarding the words samarthu and arakka kunam.

    Anyway let us know the roots. They are tamil words only.

    samarthu= sam+ar+thu

    Sam is the root word which I specified in the thread 'clarification', was um-am-sam and means 'ontru seruthal'.

    sammanthi- 'ontru seruthal'-mingling of two parents.

    samam- equality(mingling of two persons)

    Note sama panthi- samathuvam etc.

    samar-pore-battle of two persons of equal power

    Likewise when an extraordinary behaviour mingles with one person with equal foot, that is called SAMARTHU.

    samarthiasali is from the same root.

    ARAKKA KUNAM- Kunam every body knows.

    Arakkam-root is 'aram' (small ra in tamil alphabet) ; means red.

    Arabia,the word, formed from this root. Arabian people are reddish.

    When any person turns red he becomes angry and fights with others without considering the outcome.

    All foolish fighters are having 'arakka kunam'

    Mars a planet for no. 9 people in nemerology is having red in colour.

    All over the world red is considered as fighting tendency.

    When they said kal thondri mann thonra kaalathu mun thonRiya mozhi, they were not joking pa.

    Thanks Gandhi Vandyar for the loads of info you are giving us.

    I happened to read some articles written by the Paramacharya of Kanchi - Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swamigal. He too was a linguist of high order and derived great joy in tracing words and their roots. He too traces many words back to Tamil and says how old the language is.
    When we stop labouring under the delusion of our cosmic self-importance, we are free of hindrance, fear, worry and attachment. We are liberated!!!
