predominance of maritime JUNGLE climate IN SOUTH
The southern region in India is defined and acknowledged by its predominance of maritime climate and sea shores, with magnificent splendour lacing its borderlines. Being wholly based on the coasts of Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal, south India is that perfect combination of sea, sand and sun. Its coconut, or palm tree lined arenas, or the sudden appearance of dense forests hidden with unusual medicinal plants, or the dominance of the wild and ferocious, makes it the place that had witnessed its evolvement since prehistoric times. Indeed, south Indian temples and their fabulous architecture and the rare scriptures unearthed, even date back prior to the Indus Valley Civilization. The absolutely overwhelming Dravidian section of people that reside in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, make up their secluded lifestyle that can be apprehended only perhaps by a thorough visit to south India. Besides these states, south India is also delineated by the Union Territories of Puducherry and Lakshwadeep Islands, where French is known to occupy a pride place. With such ancient eras defining its historical evolvement, it becomes obvious that the germination of South Indian languages also had occurred from the Dravidian group of civilisation. Dravidian family of languages does stand in stark contrast with its northern counterpart of Indo-Aryan languages and its evolvement.
