 I have been writing this for the past ten years

1.The classification of language families is wrong. There are no Indo-European or Dravidian families

2.There is only one Indian language which branched into Tamil and Sanskrit, probably 3000 years ago

3.Any word in an ancient language can be traced back to Sanskrit or Tamil root. Fortunately, we have 2000 Sanskrit roots that existed 3000 years ago.

4.Hindus marched from East to West and entered West Asia NOT vice versa. The proof lies in Bhimbetka Caves where we have 40,000 year old paintings and drawings. Rig Veda gives the list of Rivers from East to West, starting from Ganga.

Another proof lies in allocating East to Indra and Purva, Pracheena ec mean old, east, sons of the soil (Purveeka Kuti)

5.Thousands of Sanskrit words are not found in European languages, but over 1000 Tamil words are in Greek, Latin and English. How did it happen?

Her is a Greek word which proves my pet theory.

A single Greek word has both Tamil and Sanskrit roots.

Sirius is the brightest star in the heavens.

Venus is the brightest planet in the sky.

But you can differentiate them; stars twinkle but planets like Venus don’t twinkle.

Sirius played a  very important role in the life of ancient Egyptians. Its heliacal rising coincided with the flodding of Nile, the longest river in the world. Egyptians welcomed it because it enriched the soil and increased the harvest.

Like Ganga Matha, they raised it to the level of Goddess and erected statue.

The same Sirius signalled the beginning of hot season in Greece and so they identified it with ‘burning and scorching’.

Etymology of Sirius

Greeks called it Sothis and Sireos.

Sothis is the distorted form of Jyoti which means flame, shining ; we have words like Jwala, Jewell, Jem etc.

This Sanskrit word Sothis/ Jyoti is found in Egypt as well, again in corrupted form sopted.

So in one word we get Tamil and Sanskrit

Here are what encyclopaedias say—

“Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. With a visual apparent magnitude of -1.46, it is almost twice as bright as Canopus/Agastya Nakshatra, the next brightest star.

The name “Sirius” is derived from the Ancient Greek Seirios (“glowing” or “scorcher”). The star has the Bayer designation Alpha Canis Majoris. What the naked eye perceives as a single star is actually a binary star system, consisting of a white main sequence star of spectral type A1V, termed Sirius A, and a faint white dwarf companion of spectral type DA2, termed Sirius B. The distance separating Sirius A from its companion varies between 8.1 and 31.5 AU.

The exact pronunciation of ancient Egyptian is uncertain, as vowels were not recorded until a very late period. In modern transcription, her name usually appears as Sopdet (Spdt,[3] lit. ‘Triangle’ or ‘Sharp One’), after the known Greek and Latin form Sothis (Σῶθις, Sō̂this).


Nandhi is Siva, Moon and Ganga head

Let me give my interpretation

Sothis = Jyoti, Sanskrit word for flame

Sopdet= Sothis Utpatti or Sothis Udhaya mean Origin of Sothis or Rising of Sothis/Sirius

Now look at Tamil in the word Sirius

Seirios = S-Eiri- os; in this Greek word Tamil verb Eri is burn, glow, scorch.

Now we know why Greeks called it Sirius- it ‘burnt’ or scorched Greece

And now we know why Egyptians called it sothis ; it meant bright life for them.

Nile is always called Blue Nile; in Sanskrit Nile is Blue.

Greeks might have got it from Egypt or it already was in Greece with different names.

Whatever be the etymology it is a pleasure to watch it near Orion where Hindus have Arudra of Lord Siva ad Mrgseersha (Orion belt with 3 stars); Arudra is red star in orion. Thuban is Druva at that time and not now.

Please see the pictures and then read it again.
