We as a society keep saying that the mermaids are mythological and these are just the imagination of human mind. Until yesterday, we did not believe in the presence of Gondwana Continent (Kumari Kandam) whose reference is present in pretty much the entire Tamil literature. To look back at what our ancestors did, we only have these literatures and these age old sculptures as proof. How can we say, we are on a mission to improve when we don’t even understand what has been done in the past and what better can we do in the future?
