If the Aryan Invasion was true then the Tamil people who took it most serously than any other Dravidian sect must heve some thing to say.I want The Tamil people to look into their literature said to be about 5 millinium old named Tolkapyam of Sanga period.In purananooru sub titled Siruppanatru ppadai the writer says that whenever one wants to attack the neghboring country he must first drive down the cattle of the villages of that country.which will serve as a signal to the the defending country.And when driving away the cattle utmost care to be taken to see that that no harm is done to the live stock.Same care to be taken when retriving the anomals.This shows that the Dravidians are expert cattle ranchers than the Aryans themselves.Tolkapyam talks about so many other subjects like

like what kind of foods the Tamil people favoured in different parts of Tamilnadu itself.Nowhere one would see any rancour of their or their forefathres being driven away by Aryans.No mention of Aryan.In Manimekalai a very tmail work or Silappadikaram, or tirukkural can we find any clue of Tamil people being thrown out of their lands.Their writings are very innocent free from unhappy memories of and invasion waged on them.
