Tamil Connection To Cameroon Central Africa

When  posted an article that World’s Oldest Temple built by Brahmins, in Gobekli Tepe,Turkey, there were criticisms that the site was 11000 Years old and hence my claim that it was built by Indians is wrong as the Ramayana is s on Sanatna Dharma spread dated only around 5000 BC.

I replied through my post My Posts On Sanatana Dharma Spread Reply to Critics.

I have been trying to validate the archaeology Astronomy, Cultural and Linguistic similarities, references in the Indian Legends, Puranas, Ithihasa, Ancient  and local refernces and Sanskrit /Tamil Literature

I had posted articles on the existence of Tamils in the Paleolithic Age  and we have Gondwana ,Lemuria to contend with.

One more curious fact I have found is that while the History  of  Arabia is totally not available for the period preceding Prophet, I have a post on this, the  details of ancient African Religion and languages have been brushed aside by a statement that the ancient Africans were barbaric and there were only dialects and no civilization.

I do not subscribe to this view.

Now here is the evidence , based on Linguistics, that the present   a tribe of Cameroon, one among the 220, uses a Dialect that is a mixture of deformed as well as chaste Tamil!

They use even the current Tamil words in vogue.

Please watch the Video.

The statements in the Video are true excepting the explanation for the word Gramam as Gramam is a Sanskrit word and does not have connotation as explained the Video.


Cameroon /ˌkæməˈrn/, officially the Republic of Cameroon (French: République du Cameroun), (German: Republik Kamerun), is a country in Central Africa. It is bordered by Nigeria to the west; Chad to the northeast; the Central African Republic to the east; and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Republic of the Congo to the south. Cameroon’s coastline lies on the Bight of Bonny, part of the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean. The country is often referred to as “Africa in miniature” for its geological and cultural diversity. Natural features include beaches, deserts, mountains, rainforests, and savannas. The highest point is Mount Cameroon in the southwest, and the largest cities are Douala, Yaoundé, and Garoua. Cameroon is home to over 200 different linguistic groups. The country is well known for its native styles of music, particularly makossa andbikutsi, and for its successful national football team. French and English are the official languages. After independence, the newly united nation joined the Commonwealth of Nations, although the vast majority of its territories had previously been a German colony and, after World War I, a French mandate.(wiki)

    I used to live in Ethiopia in the early 1980’s, as a 11 year old. One full moon night, one of the Ethiopian boys with whom I used play with ran towards me excitedly shouting with his hand towards the moon. The moon was at the nearest point to the earth. The boy excitedly repeated in Amharic, ” Mulu Charaka”, Mulu Charaka”( Full moon, Full moon) . I was dumbfounded, even at that young age I was able to decipher it in Tamil as “Muzu Chandran” also meaning Full moon in Tamil. I am not an historian nor have any knowledge in Geography. But I believe many million years ago the southern part of India should have been a part of what is now known as Africa.

    Dear Raman,
    Is Gramam a Sanskrit word?
    Have you heard about Amarasamhita in which Amarasimha mentioned that he had collected words from most of the languages and compiled the Sanskrit dictionary

      The word Gramam has been in use since King Rajaraja,atleast. His epigraphs at Thanjavur temple confirm this. The term might be much older. As to Amarasamhita,I do not have information. The relationship between Sanskrit and Tamil is very deep,yet diverse.Both go back to ancient times. I find it difficult to determine which one was earlier,with the present evidence available.Regards.
