THE KUMARI KANDAM AND TAMIL

Kumari Kandam (Tamil:குமரிக்கண்டம், Kumari kandam; 30,000 BC – 16,000 BC) is the name of a supposed sunken landmass referred to in the ancient Tamil and Sanskrit Matsya Purana. It is said to have been located in the Indian Ocean, south of present-day Kanyakumari district at the southern tip of India.

According to the Matsya Purana, Manu was the king of Dravidadesa land in Kumari Kandam. There are scattered references in Sangam literature, such as Kalittokai 104, to how the sea took the land of the Pandiyan kings, after which they conquered new lands to replace those they had lost. There are also references to the rivers Pahruli and Kumari, that are said to have flowed in a now-submerged land. The Silappadhikaram, one of the Five Great Epics of Tamil Literature written in first few centuries CE, states that the “cruel sea” took the Pandiyan land that lay between the rivers Pahruli and the mountainous banks of the Kumari, to replace which the Pandiyan king conquered lands belonging to the Chola and Chera kings (Maturaikkandam, verses 17-22). Adiyarkkunallar, a 12th-century commentator on the epic, explains this reference by saying that there was once a land to the south of the present-day Kanyakumari, which stretched for 700 kavatam from the Pahruli river in the north to the Kumari river in the south. As the modern equivalent of a kavatam is unknown, estimates of the size of the lost land vary from 1,400 miles (2,300 km) to 7,000 miles (11,000 km) in length, to others suggesting a total area of 6-7,000 square miles, or smaller still an area of just a few villages.

    ஊழிதொ றூழிதொ றுலகங் காக்க
    அடியிற் றன்னள வரசர்க் குணர்த்தி
    வடிவேல் எறிந்த வான்பகை பொறாது
    ப·றுளி யாற்றுடன் பன்மலை யடுக்கத்துக்
    குமரிக் கோடுங் கொடுங்கடல் கொள்ள 20
    வடதிசைக் கங்கையும் இமயமுங் கொண்டு
    தென்றிசை யாண்ட தென்னவன் வாழி
    திங்கட் செல்வன் திருக்குலம் விளங்கச்
    செங்கணா யிரத்தோன் திறல்விளங் காரம்
    பொங்கொளி மார்பிற் பூண்டோன் வாழி
