Its long India history and Indian cultural traditions are among the oldest in India and the world. The ancient Indian Tamil kingdoms of Chera, Chola, Pallava and Pandya are of very ancient origins. They patronised a mature India culture which produced some of the oldest surviving Indian literature in India.Colonised by the East India Company, India Tamil Nadu was eventually incorporated into the Madras Presidency. After the independence of India, the India Madras State was created in 1956 based on India linguistic boundaries. The name of the Madras State was changed to Tamil Nadu in the year 1969. The politics of India Tamil Nadu has been dominated by DMK and AIADMK, who are of the Indian Dravidian movement which agitated demanding concessions for the 'Dravidian' population of India Tamil Nadu.
