    I believe its Japanese. Tora means tiger or to charge like a tiger. There was a song by Van Halen Called Tora Tora Tora. Ininna might be a proper name.

    Mathangi, Thanks for asking a very wonderful question. Before answering the classical language part let me tell a little story about the origin of Tamil – Ungaluku pidikumae nu thaan ;-o) When Earth was formed, it was a hellish, fiery wasteland, raging inferno and took million of years to cool off and started life cycle of its own. During the inferno time period, Lord Shiva with some of his heavenly students were believed to be frequently visiting Earth to study about this planet, designing nature, life cycles etc. Just like college day Field Trip. They were all conversing in Tamil language and now you know why Tamil is called “Kal Thondri Man Thondra Kalathae Mun Thondriya Tamil”. Later he designated Lord Muruga and Sage Agasthiya to enrich this language in this planet, so he sent them South. Along with them joined 17 Tamil Siddhars (including Agasthiya the count is 18), The name for this language litteraly came from merging “Tham ul” (inside you) which represents the divine force inside us. Tamil language contains its own extremely rich and vast intellectual tradition. To qualify as a classical tradition, a language must fit several criteria: it should be ancient, it should be an independent tradition that arose mostly on its own not as an offshoot of another tradition, and it must have a large and extremely rich body of ancient literature. Unlike the other modern languages of India, Tamil meets each of these requirements. It is extremely old (as old as Latin and older than Arabic); it arose as an entirely independent tradition, with no influence from Sanskrit or other languages; and its ancient literature is indescribably vast and rich. A language that has broad influence till date (classical language like Sanskrit is not very popular nowadays) The earliest period of Tamil literature (Sangam literature) known to modern society, is dated from the 300 BCE – 300 CE. In real it is older than, but there is no proof. Inscriptions in Tamil Language from 1st century BCE and 2nd century CE have been discovered in Egypt and Thailand. You know why! One of the18 Tamil Siddhars is not from India. More than 55% of the epigraphical inscriptions – about 55,000 – found by the Archaeological Survey of India in India are in the Tamil language. The alphabets were designed in such way that when spoken correctly it gives a very good exercise to facial muscles and keep that person young, now you know why it is compared with divine nectar and youth. Vowels and Consonants known to the modern languages exist in Tamil (Uyirezuthu and Meyezhuthu). It was even elloborated into more with Kuril, Nedil, Vallinam, Melinam, Idaiyinam. Tamil is also null subject language where not all Tamil sentences have subjects, verbs and objects. It is possible to construct grammatically valid and meaningful sentences which lack one or more of the three. For example, a sentence may only have a verb It has its own name/description for every material objects you can think of. Tamil through sangam literature promoted Iyal, Isai, Nadagam (Literature, Music and Drama). Unlike other music system, Tamil has a very straight forward music system which is very flexible and easily adapted by literated and illetrate population. Pathuppattu (Ten Idylls) and the Ettuthogai (Eight Anthologies). Four hundred and seventy three poets, of whom thirty are women, have been identified. These are mainly classified into two. Akam or esoteric dealing with love and Puram or exoteric dealing with war. Short answer to your question: Classical languages are those, which are ancient, of an independent tradition, not a derivative of any other tradition, and its rise was on its own. Classical languages have a vast and rich reserve of ancient literature. A language that has a broad influence over an extended period of time, even after it is no longer a conversational mother tongue in its original form is reckoned as the classical language. Classical languages of India: Tamil (in 2004), Sanskrit (in 2005) Kannada (in 2008) and Telugu (in 2008). Additional details: North Arcot has been split into Thiruvanamalai and Vellore district.
