As my interest is mainly pre-British period Tamil texts, I see
none of those Tamil texts claiming that Tamil is derived from
Sanskrit. In fact, they say that Tamil is distinct from Sanskrit.
Since "Dravidian" comes from the term "Tamizh", I am
curious of any old author saying that Tamil comes
from Sanskrit. Any references?
