Lemuria between South Africa and Australia


The sounds and meanings of colloquial terms
of the rural Tamils in Tamil Nadu, India
and the aboriginal tongues in Australia,
strike the same in many a word.
The word, "pa! …pa..! "(come! Come!) is an example.

Before Lemuria was gulped by the Ocean,
the ancient Tamils roamed in the lands
stretched out from Africa to Australia.
The first tsunami washed out that land.
The inhabitants and their great Classics
had gone into the watery grave.
Ample allusions to deluges are in Tamil poems.
It is not a surprise to see the mix
of the genes of the Tamils and the aborigines.
The stone tools, the fossils of the wild dog
add the clues to this study.
Let the linguists study the syntax and semantics
of their tongues and ancient Tamil Works
to see the bonds between these people.
Matrimonial bureaus will be mushrooming
to wed together the people divided,
some four millennium back.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
