Indian Painting was at a state of perfection during the Sangam age, as can be see from references in Tolkappiyam.—Painting that became the fashion in the West only round 400 BC is depicted to have reached a high state of perfection at least a hundred years earlier in South India, as may be seen from references in Tolkappiyam to life-like paintings. The reference to manes or ancestors seen in the Roman life of early times is depicted equally clearly in Tirukural in which reference is made to the thenpulathar or the departed.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
