Here is a question, especially for those who know the ancient Tamil
literature.  Harper's Dictionary of Hinduism (p. 80) makes the following

"Ancient Tamil tradition speaks of five Dravidian regions, viz., Andhra or
Telugu and the Kanarese countries, the Maharashtra or Maratha provinces,
and Gujarat."

I would appreciate any help in tracing specific references in Tamil works
to the inclusion of Maharashtra and Gujarat among the five Dravidian
