The Tamil ancestry goes back to the thousands years as they are a Dravidian ethnic group who speak the Tamil language as their mother tongue. They trace their ancestry to Southern India and north-eastern Sri Lanka. Tamils constitute 5.9% of the population in India, concentrated mainly in Tamil Nadu, 15% in Sri Lanka, 6% in Mauritius, 7% in Malaysia and 5% in Singapore.
The Tamil language is one of the world’s longest-surviving classical languages, with a history dating back to 300 BCE. Tamil literature is dominated by poetry, especially Sangam literature, which is composed of poems composed between 300 BCE and 300 CE. The most important Tamil author was the poet and philosopher Thiruvalluvar, who wrote the Tirukkuṛaḷ, a group of treatises on ethics, politics, love and morality widely considered the greatest work of Tamil literature
