Historical Survey of Eelam

[b]Historical Survey of Eelam [/b]

By K.T.Rajasingham

The history of the Tamils is the story of the world. The history of the world is not complete, if the true story of the Eelam is not included. Up to date, a few historians wrote bits and pieces about the Tamils and Eelam, but those were not the complete story. Writing the true story demand researches to uncover the distorted, as well as the deliberately ignored or blackout details, and the ability to rewrite the discarded facts, the missing pages, into a true historical treatise is a real test on one’s ability.

Thiruvalluvar, the great Tamil poet, in the opening chapter of his treatise on moral aphorism, called Tirukural, in its first chapter "Praise of God" and in the very first Kural - prosody, a unit of two line verse, called couplet or distich, states -" 'Aah,' is the first letter of alphabets (in Tamil), God, is primordial to earth." He gave God the supreme position, as one that existed ever since. Now the question arises regarding the emergence of the world.
