I was reading about the Dravidianist myth of Kumarikandam, which is claimed to be a sort of lost sunken continent like Atlantis, somehow extending from Southern India all the way to Madgascar and even Australia. Also known as Lemuria, this dream was concocted before the modern science of plate tectonics showed it to be an absolutely impossible fantasy.
Wow, now I know why people believe in things like Hazratbal, etc. Some people will do anything to acquire self-esteem. As if the known contributions of South Indian civilization aren't enough somehow. Might make for some good fantasy novels though, a la Camelot or Middle Earth. I especially like the part about the reptile beings. HG Wells would be proud.
