video - malayalam is basically tamil + sanskrit so we have lots in common - my sister actually speaks / understands tamil although I haven't been able to figure it out yet. there's scope for confusion because the word for 'hang' in malayalam means 'sleep' in tamil - thoongu.

anonymous - danke... um, best luck and good wishes in deutsch?

Yea i know abt mallu being a mix between tamil and sankrit. Some people are bent on proving that tamil is from sankrit too. I dont share their opinions. I can understand malayalam as well, but there are certain dialects of malayalam that i cannot understand. I suppose it's vice versa as well. "thoogu" in tamil is "sleep". "Thongu" means "hang". In tamil "thoo" and "tho" are totally different letters. Depends on how you say it.

Hi Pop, Greetings from Her Highness and from us slaves too! Maybe a bit late!!

video - ok... just when my b-in law said it it sounded the same as the malayalam 'hang' and I was shocked... why would he want to hang himself? Tamil clearly does not come from sanskrit... the grammar is totally different. I think tamil has some loan words from sanskrit, but there ends the similarity.

visitor - thanks, slaves and queen / princes and princesses.
