    Good question - Kayal sees every issue through `Tamizh` prism. And she does not generally give links in her posts.

    Probably the ancestor of Hindi would be Prakrit (not sure) ?

    Centre grants classical language status to Telugu, Kannada

    NEW DELHI: The Union government on Friday gave classical language status to Telugu and Kannada; bringing them into a league presently occupied by only Sanskrit and Tamil.

    Ms. Soni said representations were received from a wide spectrum of political and civil opinion in both the States. Only languages which have a proven antiquity of over 1,500 years can qualify for this status.

    Earlier, the UPA government had granted similar status to Tamil as per a commitment made in the National Common Minimum Programme.

    Nationalists always felt that GOI should not poke its nose into classical language recognition. It is upto international linguist groups.

    Recognition of Tamil as Classical Language by Indian Government (Q A)

    Kayal,

    Other than for making bogus claims and to increase traffic to this "Tamil Tribune" site, is there any other reason why you are on DFI?

    GOI should stop funding Tamil schools and divert funds to teach Tamils - Arabic and Persian, so they can become more useful for Intelligence agencies! :)

    >> All India Radio transmits news bulletins in Sanskrit twice a day across the nation.

    What is the purpose? What a waste of radio time?This is Sanskrit imperialism.

    You are worried about 15 mins Sanskrit news programs ?

    How about this....there are more English medium schools in TN than Tamils medium schools. Given a choice except for students who want to take up Tamil literature EVERYONE(almost 90%) wants to study in English medium schools ...There is no Hindian or any Englishman who is forcing parents and kids to choose English medium...it is parent's and kid's own choice to go to English medium and like it or not there is nothing you can do about it....it is people's choice!!!

    The ex-home minister and finance minister is a Tamilian at the centre,P Chidambaram! Did you ever question him about the fund allocation ? He is a Tamilian himself if you think there is any injustice then go ask him before you complain about others... this is height of shamelessness...

    btw you still haven't answered about the state govt funding...how much is the state govt funding ?

    Yes, I don't wany MY tax money paying for Sanskrit radio show.

    What has English medium education has to do with Sanskrit radi show?

    Chidamparam or ant Tamil minister do the bidding of Hindian masters.Wikileaks documents show that Chidamparam told US ambassador that but for the subsidy to Hindi states Maharashtra and the south would be much better off economically.

    He knows the truth. He cannot do anything about it. He has to take orders from Hindian politicians.

    It's a 15 min show and there a 1.2 billion people in India...you are acting as if you are the only one who is paying tax in India...What makes you think the people who listen to the programme doesn't pay tax ??? Have some humility....

    I thought your problem was Tamil was being ignored compared to others languages...that's why I asked what about when English is being spoken so much in TN what will you do....
    Anyway other people who speak other languages don't complain about Sanskrit or even Tamil programmes when they are aired...There are many classical languages in India and people who speak them also pay tax. They tune to the radio when their favourite programme is aired they listen and they respect other languages programmes to be aired...Clearly you are jealous of other languages...
    ohh com'on why not be a true Tamilian like you and come out to the public and make a statement ? He has enough shame to talk to US media but not to his own people ?
    Tell him quit instead of being a slave to his masters..it's been 10 years he being associated with the center...don't tell me he hasn't got a single chance... you expect to me buy this.. btw .honestly i only understand hindi and can't speak a single word properly...no way i am blindly justifying anything...

    I am asking for the third time...do you know how much is the state govt funding ?

    State funding for what?

    How many people listen Sanskrit radio show? 100? 10?

    Only India-wide radio shows by GOI are English, Hindi and Sanskrit. I do not accept that. Privatise broadcast radio and TV. Cash of Hindians.ble and satellite TV are private and we get plenty of Tamil shows. Privatise broadcast and we will get plenty of Tamil shows.

    Chidamparam cannot do anything against the wish of Hindians. Deva Gowda slightly went against Hindian wishes and put a TV shows for farmers in state languzages. Hindians were mad and deposed him.
