I am pretty much surprised that no one seems to be seriously researching the connection between Ancient India and the Mayan/Inca Civilization. The evidence seems pretty clear to anyone who knows a bit of Tamil & Sanskrit. Here are the similarities that I have compiled...
GUATEMALA = Could have been derived from GAUTAM MALAI. Malai is hill in Tamil. And Gautam means the finest cows in Sanskrit.
PAMPAS = The PAMBA river in Kerala. Is this related to Pampas considering tamilians mix up 'pa' for 'ba'.
AZTECS = Derived from AZTECATL. Does it owe its origins to ASHTA KADAL (Tamil for 8 seas) or 8 sea tribes?
CHONTAL TRIBE = Is Chontal the same as the SANTHAL tribe in India?
CHOL MAYA = Are they related to the CHOLAS of Tamil Nadu?
MEXICO = Derived from Meshika (mesha lagnam in tamil is aries) or the ram country?
XOLOITZCUINTLI = Is it derived from the tamil term Solai Chundeli (Garden tiny rat)?
I'll be adding more etymologies, in the coming weeks...
