Plato is the name of one of the great philosophers of Ancient Greece, who lived during the same period of the Tamil Grammariam Tolkappiyar.—The age of Agastiyar, the author of the first grammar in Tamil, is generally placed in the VI century B.C. and Tolkappiyar, whose grammar is still extant, is generally considered his devout pupil. In Greece this was exactly the period of her great dramatists and playwrights, Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, her historians, Herodotus, Thucydides and Xenophon and her philosophers, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle though the last belongs to the IV century B.C. This was again the period of the rising art of the Greeks, which reaches its highest water-mark in the period following the Persian wars, the well-known age of Pericles.
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.
