Kumari Kandam is the name of a supposed sunken landmass referred to in existing ancient Tamil literature. It is said to have been located in the Indian Ocean, to the south of present-day Kanyakumari district at the southern tip of India.
The earliest civilization that main streamers consider is the Sumerian civilization, established in Mesopotamia (today’s Iraq) around 4000 BC. After this were the Egyptian civilization and then the Indus valley civilization But the Tamil civilization around Kumari Kandam had been much earlier than this, which would put it to the first in the time scale of civilization of mankind. What is even more interesting is that, many world-renowned researchers also claim to have deciphered the Indus script to be Tamil.
There are many additional cities and structures across the planet which are much older than The Ancient Sumerian Civilization in Ancient Iraq. (Gobekli Tepe in Turkey is making its way into the mainstream at 11,500 years old. Adams Calendar in South Africa and the ancient civilization associated with it has been estimated at over 200,000 years old.

But without any push towards conversion it is winning hearts and minds of people all over the world by it’s teaching,love and philosophy alone.
Liberty is gr8est asset of humanity and no liberty is gr8er than liberty of choosing your Gods/Goddesses or none!!That is Hinduism-Liberty and Liberation!!
Hinduism is not just a faith. It is the union of reason and intuition that can not be defined but is only to be experienced. Evil and error are not ultimate. There is no Hell, for that means there is a place where God is not, and there are sins which exceed his love.
Hindu texts laugh at religions as being the dogma of self-righteous fools and emphasize on Dharma-the righteous way. Hinduism is just a convenient label for the worlds oldest spiritual and philosophical tradition.
Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism, Shintoism,Confucianism and other eastern spiritual traditions are not religions but Dharma. They laugh at religions as being the dogma of self-righteous fools and emphasize on Dharma-the righteous way.
Together they form the core of Dharmic civilization and which we all must protect and nourish. A better humanity can only be build on the basis of Dharma.
