Dear Mr. Vasikaran,
//Meaning of "AALHAVANDHAAN"//
This is a pure Tamil word coined by the ancient Tamil Scholars during the period just prior to Sri Ramanujacharya. The word means "a new Emperor who has arrived to rule over a Kingdom /King / Queen." One of the Acharyas of Sri Ramaanuja was Alawandhar, who was an authoritatively high Scholar both in Tamil and Sanskrit as also in Tharka- Sasthram(Logic). It is the name of honour given by the Queen to a boy named YAMUNAI THURAIVAN,along with the throne to rule over a part of the then Chola Kingdom when he won over in the Logical debate with Aakkiyaazhvaan an invincible Scholar of those days. There is an intersting episode behind.

Awlavandhawn can be split as Awl+a/av/avan+Vandhawn=Awl=An(Sumerian)=Al(Arabic)=That this represents the purusha tatva in Sanskrit.
