    “Rama's birthplace traced, but not Raja Raja's memorial”

    The Hindu : Front Page : “Rama's birthplace traced, but not Raja Raja's memorial”



    Karunanidhi's poser on verdict

    CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi said on Sunday that he was pained by the fact that the memorial of Chola ruler Raja Raja, who reigned from 985 CE to 1014 CE, could not be traced, while Justice D.V. Sharma of the Allahabad High Court was able to confirm the birth place of Rama.

    “Rama is said to have been born in Kritha Yuga, which covers 17,28,000 years. Now the birthplace of Rama, born about 17 lakh years ago, has been confirmed by the judgment,” he said in a statement, recalling Justice Sharma's observation that the disputed site at Ayodhya was the birthplace of Lord Ram and the disputed building was constructed by Babar.

    Mr. Karunanidhi said it was a matter of regret that neither the details of Raja Raja's death, nor the place where he was buried and the site where a pillar was erected in his memory could be traced, though he lived a mere 1,000 years ago and ruled the entire South.

    The Tamil Nadu government recently organised a festival at Thanjavur, the capital of the Cholas, to commemorate the millennium of the Big Temple constructed by Raja Raja.

    Recalling the speech he made at the function, Mr. Karunanidhi said schemes, including land survey and democratic election ( kudavolai) of panchayat chiefs, were introduced during his reign, and the Big Temple and the epigraphs on its walls bore testimony to the achievements and political acumen of Raja Raja.

    Mr. Karunanidhi said that though a proper history of the Dravidian race was not yet written, archaeologists and linguists of foreign countries opined that the Dravidian civilisation was at least 3,000 years old. “This is based on researches on Lemuria, the Indus Valley Civilization and the Tamil language.”

    He said the truth about how the Dravidian race lived scientifically could be explained by making comparative studies between the Dravidian and other histories. “But the Aryan civilisation that tried to upstage the Dravidian race is keen on only inculcating irrational beliefs in the people without any basis.”

    Mr. Karunanidhi also recalled his speech at Nagercoil in Kanyakumari district, stressing that Dravidians were descendants of a race that lived in Lemuria, lakhs of years ago.

    He said the ancient Tamils' origin could be traced to Lemuria.

    “Unique culture”

    “Ours is a unique culture. We call it Dravidian culture to distinguish it from the Aryan culture,” he said.

    Its better for Tamil Nadu CM to put up the issue with GoI or ASI , and built a consensus with all parties , doing some thing constructive , for the dravidian culture which has a rich history for thousand of years and played a major and crucial role by enriching Indian culture, rather wasting the time with equating two different issues, and thus by kicking up of controversies, else the very failure of locating the Great King Raja Raja's memorial may also hunt him on which he is trying to en-cash and gain a political mileage.

    Karunanidhi is a filmy chap with a guttural voice!

    One must not take him seriously.

    He also serves. He is also God's creation.

    He must find Raja Raja's birthplace. It is important historically. More action and less talk!

    And anyway, these Tamil politicians love drama and are less hot on real life excepting the real Raja - the Telecom Minister!

    I Dont See why Karunanidhis Family shouldnt make movies! He is a Screenwriter Himself. Besides, he was voted into power with a great mandate, and he continues to be popular. Please dissect his statement, not what his sons or nephews do! AFAIK all of them have legal businesses, and his cinema production company too is very much open like any other production company.

    He is far better than his rival Jayalalitha!! So if i asked to choose between Karunanithi and Jayalalitha, I would choose karunanithi over Jayalalitha anyday.

    Then Say that he is playing politics! Why Drag in his family, doing legitimate business and none of whom have been convicted! I can make up stories about other peoples families, but that wont make it true!

    Tamil Nadu has this huge Dravidian complex at times and I ve felt it so. Even some of my Malayalee friends think that Aryans stuck many stuff down Dravidians throats to lord over them. I dont know about this whole dravidian aryan story, hence I cant comment. God Speed

    AFAIK the Aryan invasion theory has been proved wrong, it was British propaganda. Now its being used as a political tool it seems

    I wish MK could have been the CM of Lemuria and spared the poor Tamil's his high wisdom.But why blame MK and his kulam, blame the people who continue to elect such leaders with ideologies long past their sell by date.At the recently held world classical Tamil conference they even honored Prof Asko Parpola(who advocates proto Dravidian linkages to Indus valley)despite his remark that his filed of research has nothing to do with modern Tamil.

    If only Raja Raja Chola knew the kind of Mleecha who rule his land in his wake.

    P.S:MK should,along with kinsmen,embark on a great discovery of Lemuria and i'm sure the central govt cans pare a ship for the same.Hope they will not return until they have found Lemuria.

    Yes the invasion part was propoganda by the british but aryans did migrate to north India and merged with dravidians.
