Map Achchelu, Achelu(Yapanaya [Jaffna]) ATHURUELIYA ⚓name This is a common sinhala place name.The plant as a whole is a narcotic, and the Tamil name "Ummaththai" is probably derived from the Sanskrit/Pali word which means (causing) "madness", or "ummmada" in Sinhala. "Athuru" mean "nearby" in the present context (also, it may in other contexts mean "supplementary", or "inter-mediating").The origins of the Sinhala language are probably linked to the Magadhi of the Asokan (northern) Parkrit ( early Brahmi script), and Pali, while Tamil is linked to a southern prakrit (with a very similar Brahmi script).However, the two forms of Brahmi, and their Prakrit forms are themselves very close.Nevertheless, the Palk straits shielded the Island sufficiently to create unique biological species, a unique "Sinhala language" (see James W.Gair and others) as well as a Tamil culture distinct from that of Tamil-Nadu.Note that the old names "Rama bridge" (irāma;-cētu; இராமசேது in Tamil consistent with the Tolkkappiam rules), or Ramasethu රාමසේතුව , was replaced by "Adam's bridge" in 1804 by the British surveyor James Rennel.He was the first Surveyor General of British India.

Buddhism flourished in South India during the time of Buddhagosha (author of Visuddhi-magga); and Lanka too had Buddhist Tamils as a small but important minority, with many of them resident in Anuradhapura. Here we focus on the old Sinhala names of the tamilized Place names in the North and East.Thus kings always married other "Kshatriyas", irrespective of ethnicity. The existence of multiple place-names for a given location testifies to the rich cultural tapestry of the nation.
