Indus Script and Tamil

(Sorry for the long hiatus.)

The other day I came across this interesting work by Dr. Asko Parpola linking the Indus Script to ancient Tamil. The details can be accessed here.

He makes some interesting connections with old tamil - how the fish shaped symbol in ancient inscriptions read as 'meen' and how that symbol with various combinations read different things.

There is a cute 'dictionary' too.
