The Central Empire, Nadunaadu[edit]

I suggest a removal of the section "The Central Empire, Nadunaadu", the content is unsourced and the language is biased. (2013-04-16)

Proposed merge with Sand mining in Tamil Nadu[edit]

This article seems to talk about a social problem in Tamil Nadu  CrossTempleJay  → talk 10:14, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

This is a very specific social problem with major importance on lives dependent on those basins cited in the article. Having a seperate page will help in further understanding of the subject as well as promote awareness about the issue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pandbar (talkcontribs) 15:10, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

I suggest, NOT to merge, as the Sand mining article is about specific eco-socio-economic issue of Tamil Nadu, but not suited to be linked with general article of Tamil Nadu.Balaji 07:13, 2 March 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cheyyarbalaji (talkcontribs)

Two different topics altogether - removing the banner.Ssriram mt (talk) 01:10, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Indic scripts[edit]

As per Wikipedia:INDICSCRIPTS, native scripts should not be added. Shrikanthv (talk) 08:09, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

"Classical" Claims[edit]

The article makes various assertions that Tamil Nadu has a "classical" civilization: "classical language", "classical arts, classical music, classical literature," etc. With the partial exception of "classical languages of India", nowhere is "classical" defined, nor are these claims supported by reference to authority. As presented, they seem to be little more than boosterism. The term "classical" in English generally has a Eurocentric meaning, related to ancient Greek and Roman cultures, or to the aesthetic or intellectual traditions derived from those civilizations (as in "classical music", "classical philosophy", etc.). That meaning plainly does not apply to Tamil Nandu's civilization, so what does "classical" mean in this context? Does it just mean "ancient"? If so, how is the "classical" Tamil civilization distinguished from neighboring civilizations that aren't referred to as "classical"? These claims should be elucidated and substantiated.
