Recently I published an article on Sanskrit heading the world languages group.
Though the source I have cited is a highly reputable educational research oriented site, curiously Tamil the ancient language is found missing.
I belive this is deliberate to divide the Indians as Dravidians and Aryans, meaning Sanskrit.
1.The Vedas have, by numerous quotes refer to Tamils,indicate that Tusks,Elephants,Spices were imported from the South, especially from the Chera Kingdom.
2.The Puranas repeatedly state that a Cheran King Perunchotru Udiyan neduncherallatha fed both the Panadava and Kaurava armies during the Mahabharata War.

“The prehistoric period during which Lower Paleolithic settlements existed in the Tamil Nadu region has been estimated to span the period from about 1,510,000 BCE until around 3000 BCE. For most part of the lower Paleolithic stage, humans lived close to river valleys with sparse forest cover or in grassland environments. The population density was very low and so far only two localities of this lower Palaeolithic culture have been found insouth India. One of these is in Attirampakkam valley in the northwest of Chennai in Tamil Nadu. Archaeological research has uncovered evidence of fossil remains of animals and primitive stone implements around the northern Tamil Nadu that could be dated to belong to around 3000,000 BCE.Humans inSouth India, belonging to the species of Homo erectus, lived in this primitive ‘old stone age’ (Palaeolithic) for quite a long time, using only crude implements such as hand axes and choppers and subsisting as hunter-gatherers“(wiki)
The Tamil History based on this, Tamil Literature,Sanskrit Literature and Arikkamedu findings,Puducherry is between 15,000 BCE to 10,000 BCE.’

3.That Time is Cyclic and the events occur in Cycles.

5..Agasthya existed around 5000 BC and around 25725 years before that.’
11.Tolkaapiyam , the oldest Tamil Grammar Book is dated, at a conservative estimate,to 3 Century BC.

13.’ The linguistic evidence suggests that Proto-South Dravidian was spoken around the middle of the second millennium BC, and that proto-Tamil emerged around the 3rd century BC. The earliest epigraphic attestations of Tamil are generally taken to have been written shortly thereafter.( wiki Tail Language)
14.As To Hitti heading the Anatolian languages,
The Inca Empire was divided into Four Regions as in Ancient Tamils, Kurinji,Mullai,Marutham, Neythal , based on Geography.
The Fifth one Palai is desert.
Considering the fact that they were following most of the customs that are similar to the Customs of Sanatana Dharma. I checked and was pleasantly surprised to find that,
“The Ayar-Incas that primitive Aryan words and people came to Americaespecially from Indo-Arya by the island chains ofPolynesia. The very name of the boat in Mexico is a South Indian (Tamil) word: Catamaran.”-
The Ayar-Incas (2 Volume Set): 1. Monuments, Culture, and American Relationship; 2. Asiatic Origins-Miles Poindexter,Former US Ambassador-
The Incas celebrated the Makara Sankaranti in the South Indian Style.”
Hittite (nešili) was the language of the Hittite Empire, dated approximately 1650 to 1200 BC, which ruled over nearly all of Anatolia during that time”
Considering these facts, it is obvious that Tamil headed the Anatolian Group, based on its early date and the impact of Tamil on Hitti.
