Can we say there is Veda in Tamil? Vedas are written in Sanskrit which has no origin. But Tamil is said to have been created by the sage Agasthya.

Acharya Hrudhayam 41:
“‘senthiRaththa thamizh’ engaiyAlE Agasthyamum anaadhi.”

Azhagiya Manavala Perumal Nayanar answers by saying that Tamil is also ‘anAdhi’. Thirumangai Azhvar says ‘senthiRaththa thamizhOsai vaDasollAgi’in Thirunedunthandagam 4. Here, Azhvar has equated Tamil and Sanskrit by saying them together. In fact, Azhvar has said Tamil prior to even saying Sanskrit.

Tamil is called Aagasthyam only because the sage Agasthya spread it in this world, and not because he created it. The language itself has no origin, like Sanskrit.
