Tamil one of the oldest languages since the formation of earth.Research’s discovered that the origin of languages telugu,malayalam,kannada,sinhalam even latin was Tamil. The mother of all languages is now slowly vanishing from its origin place itself. Tamil, the language which is very easy to learn is now considered to be language which is useless.People now in TamilNadu and in its major city Chennai wants to learn other languages but not Tamil.They make their children’s to learn Hindi,English and now Japanese as a latest trend.The sad thing is that those children would not know a word in tamil.Many people think that speaking in English will make their appearance as rich and royal in persona.But they have to understand that those children’s will definitely lack in interaction with other children’s and that will lead to depression state of mind.The main reason for the waning of the language tamil is the increasing IT and ITes firms in TamilNadu.The basic requirement for them is good communication skills. But there is some real good reason behind this requirement.The reason is all the live projects being involved in the companies are from Europe and America.So,it is mandatory to know English.But the English language should always be a secondary one and not the primary one.Thirukural wrote by a great saint Thiruvalluvar in Tamil is the best literature and it explains completely “What is Life”. We have lots of book here in tamil and why should we go with other language books.Are we just thinking that Tamil is worthless?..As I said before,now in Tamil Nadu a person who knows Tamil very well speaks in English with the other person who also knows Tamil.English is just for communication between persons of different languages.We took this in a wrong way and made English as the primary one.Everyone should understand that Tamil made us to grow.Try to change the trend of calling Mummy and Daddy.Tamil feeling lives in the heart of every true tamilan.The most saddening thing is that,in convents even during Tamil Hours childrens are asked to speak only in English with the teachers or else fine will be levied on them…I dont know where TamilNadu is heading towards.Are we going to change the name as English Nadu or Hindi Nadu..I m posting this because this is my 100th post.So i want to express my view on Tamil..
Tamil lives till the last Lover of tamil falls..
