Those who are familiar with Sumer (southern Iraq) and Indus-Sarasvati River Bank civilization already know the interpreter sculpture in Sumer. Those who have featured the picture in their articles have shown him as an interpreter from Meluha which they identified with the Indus/Sarasvati river region. They also went to the extent of interpreting the world Meluha as Mlecha. Now my research shows that he is an interpreter speaking Sanskrit language.

The reasons for my conclusion are

1.MENTION OF HALAHALA POISON IN THE YAJUR VEDA and Panini’s ASHTADHYAYI

2.MENTION OF GUGGULU IN THE  VEDA

3.MENTION OF UR AND KISH IN THE RIG VEDA

4.MENTION OF ASURA KINGS (ASSYRIA) IN THE RIG VEDA

5.DISCOVERY OF OLDEST SANSKRIT WORDS IN SUMER INCLUDING NAMES OF KINGS

6.SIMILARITY BETWEEN ‘MANA’(MEASUREMENT/WEIGHT) IN SUMBER AND VEDIC LITERATURE

7. GONI IS GIVEN SUMERIAN ORIGIN? !

(POINTS 2, 3, 4, 5 ARE EXPLAINED BY ME IN THE ARTICLES PUBLISHED ALREADY; PLEASE SEE THE LINKS BELOW).

ANY SCHOLAR WITH A RESONABLE APPROACH WILL NATURALLY GO FOR HE NEAREST (in time and region) PROOF AVAILABLE. THE RESON I AM SAYING THAT THE INTERPRETER FOUND IN SUMER WAS A SANSKRIT SPEAKER BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE ANY OTHER WORD FROM OUR LANGUAGES SUCH AS PERSIAN ,GREEK, LATIN , CHINESE AND TAMIL. ONLY SANSKRIT HAS THE OLDEST WORD.

THREE OF THESE WORDS ARE NOT FOUND ANYWHERE EXCEPT SANSKRIT; THEY ARE HALAHALA POISON, GUGGULU AND KISH, KISH KINDA AND URU- KISH.

WHAT IS MELUHA? WHERE IS MELUHA?

MLECHA IS USED IN TAMIL AND SANSKRIT FOR ANY ONE COMING FROM OUTSIDE INDIA AND SPEAKING A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE OTHER THAN TAMIL AND SANSKRIT. WE HAVE VERY CLEAR PROOF FOR IT IN TAMIL AND SANSKRIT.

If we agree that the word used in Sumer is Meluha for Indus/Sarasvati River basin, then my interpretation is MILAGU/BLAK PEPPER.

Milagu , Tamil word for Black pepper, is utter black in colour. That is why Tamils named it Milagu.

Mala stands for anything that is black or not pure as white.

Mala is used for dirt, excretory materials, impurities in virtues (Saiva Siddhnata) until today in all Indian languages.

Vimala, Nirmala (without Mala) are very common names throughout Hindu world.

Mala, Mela has got cognate words in Melanesia (Island of black people)

Why do I link Milagu/black pepper and Sumer?

Milagu has a synonym in Tamil- KARI which means Carbon, Blach pepper or Black elephant.

Milagu / black pepper was exported to Sumer from Cambay area according to Panini. Katyayana also show that Black pepper came to North India via Dakhshina Patha (Sothern Route)

People name places after the products or plants available from that area. (We have proof for it in Sapta Dwipa of Puranas and Four/Five fold landscape of Sangam Tamil literature.

STRANGE WORD FOR POISON!

MAHAA- HAILIHILA

PAGE 124, INDIA AS KNOWN TO PANINI, V.S.AGRAWALA, UNIVERSITY OF LUCKNOW, 1953

“ Hailihila and Mahahailikila are words of unknown meaning and origin, mentioned by Panini as special names of some article (6-3-38). The word is not explained in any Sanskrit dictionary , nor is there any instance of its being used in literature. It appears that ‘hailihila’ was a Semitic word appearing in Sanskritised form, as the name of a poison which was imported from the West. In Arabic HALAAHILA means deadly poison (cf.Hebrew Halul is deadly poison. Steingass derives it without reason the Arabic word from Sanskrit Halaahala (F.Steingass, Persian -English Dictionary, p.1506).

The Sanskrit word itself is exotica as shown by its various spellings ,eg. Halaahala, Haalaahala, Haalahala, Haala Haala, Haahala, (Monier Williams , A Sanskrit-English dictionary, 1899, revised edition, p.1293).

Panini’s HAILIHILA seems to come to the nearest original Semitic  form of the which may have been Armaic, the international language of trade and commerce in the Achaemenian world from Syria to Gandhara. Panini refers to poisons in general called Visha and to the third degree methods of liquidating particulrs persons marked out as Vishaya by the administering of poison.

AGRAWALA IS WRONG, STEINGASS IS RIGHT!

Unfortunately, Agrawala I not a Vedic scholar; so he jumps to conclusions. In fact Steingass is right because we have that word in Yajur Veda, but different “scholars” interpreted the word differently. I have identified HALIKSNA with HAILIHILA OF PANINI.

VEDIC INDEX BY A A MACDONELL AND A B KEITH , PART TWO, P.500

HALIKSNA OR HALIIKSNA is mentioned as one of the victims t the Asvamedha/ horse sacrifice in the Yajur Veda. The commentator Mahiidhara thinks that is a kind of lion,  Sayana that a green  Cataka bird or a lion/ trna himsa is meant.  In the  Atharva Veda  HALIIKSNA seems to be some particular intestine, but  Weber that it may mean ‘gall’

No two clocks agree.

My interpretation is IT IS   Panini’s HAILIHILA. IN TAMIL IT IS KNOWN AS aalakaala visha. When Devas and  Asuras churned the milky ocean to get Amrita/nectar/elixir, AALAKAALA poison also came out and Shiva drank it .Parvati stopped it by  holding his neck. So he is known as NEELAKANTA. Anyone can see the closeness between panini’s word and this word.

Ref. in Vedas –

Maitraayani samhitaa 3-14-12; Vaajasaeyi Samhita24-31 and many more places .

In Tamil Kaari, Kari/black means Poison. So the word must be corrected as KRSNA in Yajur Veda.

ANOTHER STRANGE WORD GONI

Goni is mentioned as a container or sack /aavapana made from GONA( 4-1-42), obviously a Cloth. It is unknown in the Vedic literature, but occurs in the BRAHMAJAALA SUTTA XV as gonaka, explained as a wollen cloth made from the long haired goats. It was probably the same as KAUNAKES, ONE PIECE LOIN CLOTH worn by the early SUMERIAS AND ACCADIANS and made of suspended loopsof wool hanging from a  from a woollen skirt (Marshall, Indus Valley Civ., i.33, 342;pl.95,fig.10). the word seems to have travelled to Indiathrough commerce in Pre -Paninian days.

We are enabled to make some idea of the use of Goni, as it is still known by its old name (cf.Hindi gaun or goni) and used to carry grain, salt etc. on pack animals. Panini knows of Goni in two sizes, bigger which was also the standardsize called Goni itself and smaller Gonitarii.the former was naturally used to load on mules and asses and the latter on goats and sheep. The standard one also served as an  article of barter, as shown by the Kaasikaa on the Sutra Id- gonyaah (1-2-50) mentioning a piece of cloth purchased for 5 or 10 gonis.

–From V S Agrawala book.

My Comments

Koni Sakku (sack), Koni Uusi (big needle to stich Koni sacks);

Also Komana fom Sanskrit Kaupeena. So the word must have originated in India and Kaupeena is corrupted as Kaunake in Sumerian.

In Tamil it is Kovanam or Komanam.

ASURA KING OF SUMERIA

Pippali, long pepper was exported from Cambay (Gujarat area). Broach (Bharu Kachcha) was a main port. Pepper also came to North india via Dhakshina patha (Southern Route). So this might have led the Sumerians to  call Indi land of Milagu( Meluga)

Finally Ajamiidha and Ajakranda (Under Geographical data in V S AGRAWALA’S BOOK)
