Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has told MDMK Leader Vaiko that India cannot engage in punitive action or sanctions against Sri Lanka

Singh told this directly to Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagham (MDMK) leader V.Gopalaswamy now known as “Vaiko” when the latter met him

MDMK leader Vaiko had a 20 minute meeting from 12. 20 – 12.40 pm on August 2nd in New Delhi where he submitted a memorandum to the Indian PM

In that memorandum the MDMK leader had outlined contemporary events concerning the war in Sri Lanka from his perspective&urged Indian action

Pointing out that moves were on internationally to indict the Rajapaksa regime for alleged war crimes,Vaiko said India must also co-operate

Stating that international economic sanctions against Sri Lanka was possible,Vaiko said that India also should take action in this regard

Vaiko specifically requested that India should stop all economic assistance to Sri Lanka&rescind all economic&financial accords with Lanka

Vaiko also requested thaqt India should support moves now on to make Sri Lanka face war crimes charges in the International Criminal court

Manmohan Singh gave a sympathetic hearing to Vaiko but categorically refused to comply with demands made by him on action against Sri Lanka

The Indian PM explained that such action would only result in China displacing India as the leading strategic&trading partner of Sri Lanka

Therefore India will not engage in adverse action against Sri Lanka but will urge Colombo to probe alleged war time human rights violations

Singh also said that India was concerned about Tamils in Sri Lanka & was encouraging Colombo to bring about an acceptable political solution

Vaiko had responded by saying that China was involved with Sri Lankan navy in attacks on Indian fishermen&that Sri Lanka was pro-Pakistan

Singh refuted Vaiko’s charges strongly & asserted Sri Lanka was a close friend of India&was not aligned to any other country against India

Indian PM said that if India engaged in adverse action against Sri Lanka Colombo could turn hostile to New Delhi&seek other new “friends”

The PM stated firmly that India cannot afford to take action against Sri Lanka as demanded by the MDMK&other Tamil Nadu political parties

After Manmohan Singh’s candid explanation a crestfallen Vaiko departed from the PM’s office & met with Indian Home minister P. Chidamparam

  1. Singh has spoken. Vaiko has no choice but to go off disappointed.But will Puratchi Thalaivi Jeyalalitha amma agree to this refusal? Wait for the fireworks. Ultimately Singh will not be PM any more

  2. This was to be expected.Vaiko was foolish to request ation directly without understanding India’s foreign policy requirements

  3. our PM is making big mistake listening to wrong advice from tyhe “Malayalam mafia” in South block. By this policy India will be left in the lurch . Tamils will be alienated from New Delhi. As for Colomo it will reject New Delho one day and openly side with Beijing and Islamabad

  4. “The Indian PM explained that such action would only result in China displacing India as the leading strategic&trading partner of Sri Lanka”

    According to Singh human righ has a price and a geopolitical price at that! I wonder whether that is the only reason why he is scared of Sri Lanka? Could there be another reason like being a partner in the same crime? Definitely India had a role to play in the human right violations directly during the IPKF period and indirecly during 2009. He talks as if China has not yet got under his skin. Actually the GOSL is virtually in the pocket of the Chinese. It would be matter of time before Indians are completely thrown away from Lanka!

  5. mr DBSJ this appeared on ur previous article too if u think this is suitable pls post this again.500-600 TN trawlers regularly intrude to parts of SL waters streching from chilaw to jaffna. This deprives the livelyhood for SL fishermen in north ,NWest intrusions are due to the depletion of fish in TN waters due to practice of bottom trawling by TN fishermen
    common fishing grounds’ concept is useless as it opens rich pool of resorces to IND in SL waters and depleted fishing grounds for SL in IND.These intrusions have increased reports of alleged attacks by SL navy.IND/SL should jointly investigate these claims and enact justice.
    handing over kachativu is not a solution as TN fishermen are fishing in north weat and also in mulaitvu waters miles away from kachativu.
    Prof.V.Suryanarayan a scholar accepts that bottom trawling by TN fishermen is disasterous but instead of asking to
    ban it he cries “The Sinhalese chauvinists would like the Tamils of both countries to fight ” “common heritage of Tamils on both sides ” etc etc without noticing that TN fishermen activities in in north west.

  6. Gotabaya says that India is the only country that can change the course of events in SL but Manmohan says India can’t do anything in SL. Who is lying?

    Manmohan has been the silent spectator of the mother of all corruptions in his cabinet and the mother of all war crimes at his doorstep.

    I’m not a big fan of Vaikoo but Manmohan’s many actions are very wrong.

  7. wait and see , indian PM is puppet. no need to take his words so seriously. he didn’t say NO, PM said if we are not there china will be there.

  8. How can Singh impose economic sanctions on Srilanka, While Indian corporates are benefiting by doing lots of business in Srilanka? This is childish. Vaiko can lobby the corporates like Kingfisher and Airtel to avoid Srilanka which will never happen. We are living in a corporate world where laws are made to keep business leaders happy than to improve poor.

    ”’Singh refuted Vaiko’s charges strongly & asserted Sri Lanka was a close friend of India&was not aligned to any other country against India””

    Funny, Singh has comfortably forgotten that Srilanka helped Pakistan in 1971 Indo-Pak war. Pakistan air force jets fuelled in Colombo and bombed Kerala. Sooner or later India will be squashed out like a piece of shit from Lanka. But when that happens Singh may not hold the office in India.

  9. This is embrassing for SL gov as IND pm has clearly implied that IND maintain relations with SL just to keep the chinese influence out.Its time that sri lankans should identify IND is no friend but a enemy in disguise.
    anyway what made vaiko to link alleged navy attacks to china ?

  10. infant

    This is about greed and has nothing to do with people.

    Trawler owning muthalalies (most of them are linked to parties and thuggery)want return on their hefty investments. Poor fishermen pay the price with their lives.

    This is not about didviding Tamil fishermen on both sides, its about dividing the fishermen in the whole region.

    Wake up all fishermen in the region. If you don’t you will loose your livelyhood to greed. The greed is partly motivated by export earnings.

    Some stupid Sinhala Buddhist would argue, Chinese Mudalalis should replace the Indian Mudalalies. There is no such thing called benelovent mudalalies.

    Military enforced Sinhala colonisation along the north east coast has nothing to do with livelyhood of Sinhala fishermen folks. This is about Sinhala mudalalies, their greed, vote banks, marginalisation of Tamil fishermen, etc.

    Vaiko should look at the problem created by his own Mudalalies.

    The stupid Sinhala and Tamil nationalist should rise above their petty nationalistic interests, and work with all fishermen in the region, share the fruits of labour. For Tamils and Sinhalese this would be too much to understand, because both races are certified stupids.

  11. Tamils, Indian and Srilanka, have been begging India for far too long. But it didn’t work. Tamil Nadu lost its rights in Katchatheevu and its citizens are killed on a daily basis. It cannot protect even its own citizens and economic interests from Sri Lanka Navy and couldn’t stop Indian Navy from being complicit in the massacre of Indian fishermen. Lost its dignity as a nation, and lives on begging India for its legitimate rights.

    Sri Lanka Tamils have been no different from Indian Tamils and its leaders, Amirthalingam to Sambanthan, have been just the puppets of India. They haven’t learnt any thing from the past.

    In 1987 Argentina put forward a resolution against Sri Lanka at UNHRC for the massacre of Tamils in 1983 Black July, but India firmly stood against it and the resolution was defeated. That was a time there wasn’t and bitterness between LTTE and India, and the Tamils had their utmost trust and faith upon India.

    Result: Sri Lanka Tamils lost everything and now live under occupation. But there is still something left for Indian Tamils to lose.

    The only way the Tamils can reverse the trend is first: Stop begging from India. There is no need to beg India to get their lost legitimate rights. Second: Take a firm stand against Indian interests as Sri Lanka does now.

    In these respect if Tamil Nadu doesn’t lead the Tamils, they will be the biggest losers than the Eelam Tamils.

  12. Indo -lankan agreement prevents 3rd party involvement in to this Island conflict.3rd parties other than India already allowed by Srilanka.so agreement is breaked now India is fearing for a virago.paavam
    An Eelam citizen

  13. Looking at what is going at the Indian Parliament, it seems that the Indian government will not last long.

  14. Sinhalese have been saved by the grace of Chinese and Pakistani people this time around from the brutal terrorists who live close by to us. Lets make more friends around the region be it Satan; so that future threats could be overcome in less than 30 years.

    Thank you DBSJ for opening our eyes, again and again to the realities of so called peace we have now.

    We must make a shrine now in the name of our dearest Mahinda Mama; for saving our Sinhalese race from “certain annihilation” in the hands of blood sucking bastards, the so called minorities who have been hiding amongst Sinhalese Buddhists for centuries, claiming to be innocent victims when it suits them, and mascaraing our own Sinhalese people.

  15. only the Sri Lanka is best neibour india ever had in south asian region . these POLITICAL JOKERS from TAMIL NADU is trying to isolate India it self from the whole south Asian region . Sri Lanka always keeps ties between two counteries because GOSL knows that how important a good friend who knows better of our life style. but it seems THESE JOKERS won’t give us a rest. LTTE money is going to destroy India too. be careful India it is like a cancer

  16. Sing is foolish
    vaiko is foolish moddai
    puradshi thalaivi is aragant foolish
    not like sri lankans ….indians r non civlized barbarians

  17. Mr Singh is the puppet of many forces that lead India. In the top, there is the Itlian Mafia and below, there is the Malayalam Mafia.

    Mr Singh’s words are never to be taken seriously. He is a toothless bulldog; he was made Prime Minister for convinience.

    Mr Singh helplessly watched the genocide in Sri Lanka; he watched the ever-changing Indian policy towards Sri Lanka.

    Mr Singh watched corruption flourinh in India under the guise of development.

    In conclusion, Mr Singh is an ineffective Prime Minister; he is hopeless.

  18. There is no secret, India won’t never take any action against SL Government. India is also part and parcel of this whole episode. Without India’s permission SL government would not have taken any military action any way.

  19. it was only expected that india will not listen to tamil grievances and for this stand congress has paid a heavy price.it has only 5 legislators in the whole of tamil nadu.i doubt it can even win a single seat in coming parliamentary election for its stand on srilanka.india has been obsessed with china off late.if china is friendly with srilanka india has to flex its muscle not kow tow srilankan government.when iran proposed a gas pipeline to india through pakistan did not america presurrise india not to go ahead with the project.america is even preventing india and other countries from importing oil from iran by blocking the payment system.this is the characteristic of a super power.india can have pretensions of becoming a super power but it can never become one.even tiny maldives and bhutan will threaten india by saying that chinese are ready to come to our place if you dont assist us.it is nothing but sheer pussilanimity on the part of india not to help tamils who are in distress in srilanka.indian prime ministers refusal to heed the public opinion in tamil nadu does not augur well for indian policy makers at newdelhi.as far as tamils are concerned they have to rally the public opinion in tamilnadu even more vigorously this is the only way they can help their tamil brothers and sisters across the water.

  20. What are the “real” interests of the TN politicians over the Sri Lankan Tamil?

    Indian Tamils now think Sri Lanka is their “farm” for their benefit.

    Not only Dr.Manmohan, any other PM will have the same words. Sri Lanka’s biggest trading partner is India now. India never lose that privilage to China for the interest of the Tamil Nadu smuggling criminals!

  21. Tamils form only around 5% of the India’s population. The Malayalis, Kannadigas, Telugus, Gujaratis, Marathis, Punjabis, Oriyas, Bengalis and Hindi speakers have no real issues with Sri Lanka.

    It’s time Tamils get rid of their historical hatred of Sri Lanka and the Sinhalese people.

  22. You seem to have rather grandiose visions. India has already opened high commission offices in Hambantota and Jaffna. So how is India being “thrown away from Lanka”?

  23. The Tamil Nadu politicians are welcome to scream all they like. The more they scream, and the more ridiculous their demands, the more they come out looking like lunatics not only to to the Indian Central government, but to the Indian people as well. Already other Indians from states outside Tamil Nadu look at the Tamil Nadu politicians with bemusement. Sri Lanka is playing the game well by remaining silent and trying to engage with Jayalalitha et al.

  24. Not really, Sri Lanka would have gone ahead with military ops with or without India’s “permission”

    India started supporting SL only when SL started winning against the LTTE.

  25. Why do Tamils insist on blaming the Malayalis/Sinhalese/North Indians/Brahmins for their plight? Isn’t it time to examine how Tamils themselves played a huge role in creating war, violence, death and destruction?

  26. Dr MS’s rejection is not surprising, India’s long silence on this matter indicated, what was to expect.
    What is in it for us- This is the question every nation asks when decisions being taken to force/pressure another nation. India stands to loose a lot if it upsets SL, although it is minor. This is what Mr Vaiko failed to understand- National Interest is first and foremost.

    Another issue, suppose economic embargo is imposed upon SL, who would be affected most. As M Sing says, India should assert SL to find a solution, rather than releasing video, countering CH4’s presentation.

  27. The destruction of LTTE happened with clear blessings from New Delhi.
    Because, India is worried about the growing nationalism in Tamil Nadu and the LTTE collaboration with subversive elements in India.
    This is an era of forming business realtions not countries. countries have enough ecomic worries than to mess with other countries. India is a friend of Sl and Sl is a friend of India.

    Even Jayalalitha’s mouth is silent on SL.

  28. i think that in politics there is something called “natural allies”. in this context, china is a natural ally of the Sinhala government in srilanka. the proactive and shrewd thing (i do not know if it is the just thing) on part of the Indian government would have been for india to have split srilanka into two countries a northern militarised tamil eelam and a southern china allying sinhalese srilanka. Indira gandhi thought on those lines but no other indian leader after her had that guts. also in international relations there is not much point in arriving at a deal with a leader if he cannot sell it back home to his own people (referring to rajiv’s accord with the srilankan president)

    now india is in the unfortunate position of having to bend over backwards to a small state lying in its foot (“geographically speaking” ) and cover up and take the rap internationally for the human rights abuses of its quasi democratic quasi dictator president.

    but india deserves all that it is getting now. in fact they deserve more …. for being neither good nor practical

  29. Is it a shot across bows of Jaya Amma and more importantly US (considering Hilary’s visit to TN and the impending Geveva UNHRC meet) that Tamil Nadu will not be allowed to play Sri Lankan politics (that will inevitably expose the Indian complicity in war crimes)?

    Nirupama Rao’s (? engineered) visit to meet Rajapaksa prior to taking up the US ambassador post fits in well as an added signal to US.

    If there are reactions I guess it will be swift!

  30. Indian Govt. under directive from Sonia has already aided the war, resulting in the defeat of Tigers but at the expence of many innocents being killed.

    If it takes an about turn in condemning Sri Lanka it will be exposed for contributing to war crimes. So one can understand the position of Manmohan Singh. Pity that a man known for honesty now has to sacrfice his reputation.

  31. What an excuse given by the Prime Minister of India.
    He says he is afraid that Sri Lanka will align with China if India takes action against SL. How can India become a Super Power if they are so scared of China?
    The regime in SL know that it can hold India to ransom and get away with any
    unreasonable demand. Next time even tiny Maldives could do the same, threatening India that they will align with China.
    Pity that the present rulers of India are not patriotic unlike in the past.

  32. My assessment is that Vaiko knew very well when he went to meet with the PM that any kind of economic sanctions against Sri Lanka is impossible as it would eventually affect the interest of Indian business and the political hold India has over Sri Lanka. On the other hand, if Vaiko really believed that Indian Govt. would impose sanctions against SL, then he is a damned fool not even understand the basics of politics and relationship between two sovereign countries! Why did then Vaiko go to see the PM? Well, just to show the diaspora Tamils that he was doing something in favour of the Sri Lankan Tamils( in this case for the diaspora Tamils) Pure showmanship! Other showmen are the cinema Seeman and Pazha. Nedumaran among others. As for J.Jeyalitha, she had been an actress in cinema, now in politics. In fact, any politician or any person for that matter, who does not care about the problems in their own homes /country, cannot claim to have concern for people of other countries. There are so many problems they can try to solve, or to help find redress in their own homes/country. They better deal with them first.

  33. Yes, thanks to King Mahinda Rajapaksha, for making the Sri Lankan Tamil issue as a GLOBAL TAMIL ISSUE!!!

  34. Vaiko’s request was nothing but a political posturing. Prime Minister Singh is a well known spokesperson for Indian government, and his reply is expected one.

    Tamils on both side of the sea should realize that human rights, Eelam Tamils’ grievances, 40,000 civilian massacres all are useful bogy for India and US to advance their national interest in the region.

    Since 1983, foreign powers are riding on us, and that need to be stopped. Also, some so called journalists, pundits, and academics thrive on Lankan ethnic problem. They don’t know any other subjects.

    We, ordinary Eelam Tamils have to look after ourselves. Don’t count on anyone.

  35. Current Congress lead government is a shame for India. It will destroy India in long term. Pray to God to save India from the morons.
    I hope Jayalalithaa J will become the prime minister of India, one day, and put India back on track again.

  36. Sarath is correct. Sri Lankan Tamils are way better off with the Sinhalese than with their (supposed) brethren in TN, and they know it. Sri Lankan Muslims are way better off in Sri Lanka with the Sinhalese than they would be in Pakistan. Just check the stats.

    Nation life expect pop GDP GDP/per Lit male female
    Sri Lanka 75.75 21,283,913 $107 $5,004 91% 92% 89%
    India 66.8 1,189,172,906 $4,060 $3,414 61% 73% 48%
    Pakistan 65.99 187,342,721 $465 $2,482 50% 63% 36%

  37. /*
    It’s time Tamils (Tamil Nadu?) get rid of their historical hatred of Sri Lanka and the Sinhalese people.
    */

    Tamil Nadu / Ceylon relations were cordial prior to the burning of the Jaffna library. Consequently its clear whoever burnt the library stands to gain from TN and Ceylon breaking relations.

  38. Tamil Nadu gives 40 MPs to central. 40/173 = 23% of the power to the central, TN is King makers.

    so anyone wanted to be power in central or supporting to war criminals???

  39. Wonder what is behind this change of heart by the big brother..Would Mr. Rajappa’s ‘expose’ have something to do with it? Or has there been problems in the Agni III production (which was touted to reach Beijing but now widely agreed not to) and the Agni V (This one touted to reach Harbin) test preparation for December?

  40. it would be so counterproductive for india to impose economic sanctions. Indian assistance thus far has directly benefited the war ravaged tamil population in the north. if india imposes economic sanctions, the vary population that vaiko and jayalathila claims mistreated will be further demoralised

  41. You are wrong. Tamil population in India is 5.9 %. It is funny to say Non Tamils have no issue with Srilanka. How could you expect people to have problems with each other when they dont share borders? This is like saying Tamils have problems with Nepalese. Africans have no issues with Sinhalaese and Malayalees. You are really funny.

  42. Sarath, where do you put the fast undo death stunt by Wimal Weeravansa against UN ? How do you rate Sambikka’s statements? How do you scale GR’s BBC hardtalk interview when he said he would hang Sarath Fonseka ? Above all how do you rate Mervin Silva when he punished an Govt employee by roping him on a coconut tree?

  43. aunt Suhasini says “It cannot protect even its own citizens and economic interests from Sri Lanka Navy”
    what are these ‘economic interests’ stealing resources of other countries ?
    then she says “no need to beg India” which is quite true.no need to beg ind ask your jayalaitha madam to ban bottom trawling and fishermen intruding into other terrorities(like they banned vivek.asin ,tammana who came to SL)

    native vedda I accept some of your ideas but people too have something to do with.when TN fishermen were detained in jaffna they told that TN gov asked them to go and fish(steal),(and i have seen TN actor called vijay endorsing it)if any problem come they would rescue them.so why these people vote and elect these political thugs(normally TN voters are politically matured than those sinhala racicts).why don’t these good TN people hold mass demos,self immolations persuading NOT TO FORCE them to intrude ? no the TN fishermen very well know how economically profitable this is.

  44. This is part of politics.
    Now Vaiko can go back and tell their supporters and constituants that he has talked to PM. He will also make this 20 mins meeting a huge thing in his political carrier.

  45. All we need now is for a few people to set themselves on fire in Tamil Nadu demanding India snap all ties with Sri Lanka — that would reveal Tamil Nadu to be a backward thinking, parochial, uncivilised state in the eyes of the rest of India and the world.

  46. well said. He is basically saying, its not a good idea, politically, to take action against Sri Lanka. So basically our rights are not ‘worth the hassle”.

  47. good sinhala tele drama, but that hooker is cute, who would get more attention thatn the edited clip

  48. I perceived Vaiko as a cartoon character in Sth Indian domestic politics, either crestfallen or fell off a cliff it won’t hurt him!

    Indian PM Singh didn’t want to waste more than 20 mins with Vaiko as PM knew; the facts do not exist because they are ignored in Vaiko’s eyes.
    The last thing India wants is another enemy other side of Palk Strait opened to the vast Indian Ocean as PM knows that you can’t choose enemies.

    India used to have 25% of global trade before the colonisation and reduced to 4% by the time of independence and the PM has to maintain stability to regain what was lost over the centuries. It’ll take another century for Vaiko character and other celluloid queen to understand complexities in the geopolitical game.

  49. Vaiko was put in his place by Jayalalithaa. Singh is put in his place by Sonia

    Two powerless puppets dancing on apron strings of two powerful women are discussing as if they have power to do anything

  50. on a previous article uncle yogesh dismissed my facts saying ‘fabricated’ ‘handiwork of Sinhalese.’ and askedked me to get ‘perished’ rather than coming up with any counter argument which isn’t surprising .anyway I would post the links to support my facts.but i doubt whether they would appear

  51. by mistake i couldn’t post the link for the massacre.http://t.co/Rwpme8F
    in the previous article uncle mashesh says IND is a functional democracy.but my view is that both SL and IND are dysfunctional democracies.by saying “if these things could happen” uncle refus3es that there are rights vilolations
    or mass killings in IND .such refusals only force me to give uncle an advice.please regularly update your memory
    on ind politics.u have not been doing that for a long time. 🙂

  52. Dont you know who smuggled Diesel and other bomb making elements to LTTE from India? Gopalasamy was the biggest smuggler. Now he has no business now and he is running like a hungry wolf!

    nder guise of fishermen, TN smugglers made a good fotune. Now that is over. That is why they invade Sri lankan waters. Why cannot the TN cine fools ask not to fish “in Sinhala” waters?

    if ASIN comes to Sri lanka, these cine fools cry against her but they never open their mouth against the smugglers or illegal TN fisherman in Sri Lankan waters!

    From Kuttimani to LTTE bigwigs are all smugglers.

  53. another victory ! tamil rights activits most rightly democratically assaluted a bunch of sinhala rascits shopping in chennai in the guise of pilgrims.some short war criminals posing as children were soundly beaten up and their
    belongings were set on fire. we also DENY the charge that some of our rights activits took these belongings home to their
    wives.our boys bravely took over a hotel and stripped the t-shirts of both male and female war criminals where genuine evidence of war crimes were found.
    This is a clear example of our FUNCTIONAL DEMOCRACY. yours truly vaiko

  54. Indian PMs statement should clearly display the reality and the options left for the Tamil community in SL.It is an eye opener for TNA politics. TNA rather seek other means to win over their demand than singularly depending on foreign diplomatic pressure.

  55. Mr Manumohan Singh is naïve.

    Is this the way to conduct foreign policy of a country?

    The Prime Minister has put all the cards on the table.

    There is no need for any diplomacy.

    Sri Lanka will be able to blackmail India and India has no options.

    India should not have allowed LTTE to be defeated.

    With the defeat of LTTE India has lost all her leverage over Sri Lanka.

    Now Sri Lanka will be able to dictate terms to India.

    In the long run India will be the permanent loser.

    The Sri Lankan Tamils are the natural allies of India and India should strengthened the already existing excellent relations with Sri Lankan Tamils and try to minimize the animosity of Sinhalese.

    India is the traditional enemies of India.

    No amount of gifts are going to change this equation.

    India should behave like a big brother and use strong arm tactics to ensure her neighbors fall in line.

    Otherwise India will live to regret China-Pakistan- Sri Lanka axis.

    Let Indian diplomats relearn Kautaliya!

  56. The response from Dr. Singh is not surprising. The events will change, soon. When DMK was in power in TN, SriLanka had utter disrespect for the state and its leaders. That is no longer true after Ms. Jeyalalitha became CM. Similarly, there will be change of approach towards SL, in the future. The current UPA regime is unlikely to win next term due to corruption and anti-incumbency factor.

    By the way, there is no mention about Vaiko’s request to squash Perarivalan’s death penalty in your tweets.

    DBSJ RESPONDS:

    My tweets were about Singh’s response to Vaiko’s main request. I was not tweeting about other matters discussed or raised.

  57. Suhasini,

    It is really high time, for the tamilians to align with the Chinese, as begging for thier rights with India had not worked so far.(Indian PM”s categorical reply shows that, it will not work in the future also.)
    If the Sinhalese can play China card, against India, there is no reason why Tamilians can not play similarly.

    China has the militory might to devide India and create a Tamil Nation, which includes, the present day Tamilnadu and the northen Srilanka. The next Eelam war should start in Tamilnadu, the next V. Prabhakaran should rise in Tamilnadu.

    Patriotic Tamil leaders like Vaiko, Nedumarans etc. should lead this strugle to create the greater Eelam, provide encourage and moral support , so that an armed struggle can start in Tamilinadu, give rise to a
    Neo TN LTTE and a great leader like V. Prabhakaran emerges. If the neo TN LTTE establises proper relationship with the Chinese, it is just a matter of months for the greater Eelam to emerge( As the Chinese are rubbing thier hands to get a strong foot hold in the India Ocean). For sure ,China will not let go the opportinity to get a foothold in India itself.

  58. The past is past and no body is going to benefit by opening the past wounds. The distruction of LTTE ( which was India’s creation) has been good for Sri Lanka including Sri Lankan tamils, India. If LTTE had surviewed 2009 it would have further damaged the Tamil community in Sri Lanka and drag Tamil Nadu also into conflict with Sri Lanka and with Indian central government.

    It is unavoidable collateral damage including some civilian casualties when fighting a roothless terrorist organization who has kept tamil civilians as a human sheild and forced tamil children to the frontline as cannon fodder. Sri Lankan army has never ever intentionally targerted the Tamil civilians.

    As suggested by Indian PM, Tamil Nadu should realize that whether like or not President Rajapaksha is going to rule Sri Lanka for next 15 years and it is of India’s interest to maintain good relations with its only sourthern neigbor.

  59. AS I have always told, what India is doing is to look after their national interest and not to jeperdise it by taking the side of a few rabble tamils. Singh is perfectly correct and every one knows Vaiko is an extreamist. Although some think singhe is a old fart, well he has proved he is not. in my estimates he is a very shrewed leader who has the well being of all india foremost. Today the reality is india’s biggest backer USA is bankrupt. while SL’s biggest backer China is going to be a great economic and military power which India cannot match. So why make enimies out of SL for nothing? a very good response from singhe to vaiko. Militant tamils seem to try to drag india into their fight because they just cannot fight themselves!! singh is not buying that. well done.

  60. Panhinda’s comments (Aug 03) “It is time Tamilnadu get rid of their historically hatred of Sri Lanka and Sinhala people” is calculated to create hatred of both Tamilnadu and its friendly people here. Over a thousand rural Sinhalese (mostly) fly to India several times a week on pilgrimate. They go through Chennai/Tamilnadu. This has been going on for many years now. There have been hardly any incident – except one reported yesterday which is more of a rare exception. The large State of Tamilnadu and its 65 million people have other priorities and concerns. Tamils from the State in large numbers also live in Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa, Mauritius and other countries.

    It appears in recent decades the Sinhalese, sadly, are obssessed with Tamilnadu. It is perhaps more accurate to say the Sinhalese feel negatively about TN and its people than the other way about as one reads in public discourse.
    Men like Weerawans openly inflame anti-Tamilnadu feelings in the open. This may be because of their own pereceived guilt arising from the tragic events that Tamils are subject to periodically and collectively from 1958 here.
    As I see it in my many years experience on both sides of the Straits, the negative perceptions of the State and people of Tamilnadu are not against the Sinhala people – but against the aberrations of the Sinhala State. Tamils in Tamilnadu look at their counter-parts here in goodwill and friendship is something that needs no emphasis. Let us hope the invitation extended by Speaker Chamal Rajapakse will result in the arrival of AIDMK MPs here on a goodwill and “look-see” visit.

  61. what ever..i have to love my country.

    If my country says something i should not cross in their way…afterall INDIA is a democratic country..correct!

  62. Then instead of Singh, (Yashwant) Sinha will be saying this.. The message will be the same, only the messenger will be different.

  63. Tamils have problems with all and sundry

    Hatred for:

    – Brahmins
    – Hindi language
    – North Indians
    – Kannadigas
    – Malayalees
    – Different castes
    – Sinhalese
    – Sri Lanka
    – Female infants

    Tamil nationalism is built on hatred of “the other”

  64. Mahesh, Why confusion? Sivananthan’s full time job is smuggling with the concurrence of DD, kidnapping and extortion with the blessings of Pillayan and his part time job is to make Mahinda & co happy. You need not to break your head. You just ignore this idiot.

  65. I never said India is a perfect country. Equally bad as Sri Lanka. By the why can’t you spend time in playing games like see-saw, swinger, merry-go-around etc? You can wait still you get universal adult franchise to interfere in serious matter like politics. Drink milk and take rest. Sweet dreamsda kanna.

  66. The only way the Tamils can reverse the trend is first: Stop begging from India. There is no need to beg India to get their lost legitimate rights. Second: Take a firm stand against Indian interests as Sri Lanka does now.

    ————————-

    Never seen such brilliant logic !

    Yes, the eelam tamils will have two enemies at either side of their borders. Soo your motto is ‘keep our enemies closer’.

    Please understand how tiny our island nation is compared to India. Do you people want to divide & make it more vulnerable?

    Yes stop begging not only from India, also stop begging from EU, UN & the west too.

    When will ye see the reality?

  67. There is no change of heart here by big brother. It is all to do with national interest; as always.

    Safety and security was the main interest two years ago when GoI joined hands with or used GoSL to see their menace brought to an end. The job was done with much ease because the political backing of GoI, necessary for an all-out attack at any cost, despite the heavy civilian losses was given by Mrs Sonia Ghandi as she has also some personal vendetta to silence these killers who killed her man. Such an opportunity is hard to come by, when it came; GoSL made the most.

    Post war situation poses two significant issues that it should manage to preserve its interest; the immediate one being the reputational in that if GoSL found itselves at Hauge, it is likely that GoI’s level of aiding and abetting to GoSL and its prior knowledge of more than zero civilian causalities in the war would come to light. This could well be the reason the GoI took no notice of CH4 footage as it knew what would be in it. The second one being dealing a situation with a GoSL minus LTTE; GoSL could play all the games in the book to make GoI feels unwanted, pretending or otherwise to make it looks like having an affairs with Pakistan and/or China. Like Cuba to the USA, regardless of the size, it would become a pain in the arse if it did not manage properly.

    Another interest being, the trades; an economic embargo would bite it badly so supporting this kind of measures in the UN to get GoSL to toe the line in terms of fulfilling accountability issues would affect them badly. Being an expert in economic Dr MS knows it only too well.

    As far as its world standing goes, India harbours an ambition of becoming a member in the UN Security Council soon. For this to happen, GoI cannot afford to loose GoSL’s support as a member nation.

    On a personal level, if Dr MS could have any regrets in his tenure as Prime Minister, it should be the decision seeking support of the DMK to form a Govt in the first place. He knew the spectrum affair has made a huge dent on his otherwise stellar political life.

    As a result of the all the above, Vaiko did not have a chance to sell his plea. What he did was he picked on one issue that is simpler, and be easily understood by him. Even for this, Vaiko made up an instant return saying Chinese were shooting at TN fishermen from within SL Navy Ships.

    GoI realises the importance of finding a solution for the island ethnic issue. Do nothing and missing this opportunity to find a solution and persistent unrest between the races in SL would pave way for a annexure, if not separation. Dr MS could pass his time, but the problem will remained unresolved for another PM to take care of. GoSL does not have the maturity to solve this problem by itself, because for its leaders, wisdom comes only once they have retired but they do not have the virtue by then. Consequence of these failings is loss of innocent lives. Would any leader dare to sort out this issue while maintaining the main stream population happy? I doubt, history/statistic supports this view.

  68. I wonder why Hilary Clinton went to meet the chief minister of a “lunatic” state!
    May be Sarath can enlighten the readers.

  69. “…………backward thinking, parochial, uncivilised state………..”
    Look at your hand, the other 3 fingers are pointing towards you.

  70. Sivananthan, you don’t sound like a Tamil, Indian or Sri Lankan. Most of your comments are very unpaliamentary. Please be courteous when you make comments in public forums like this.

  71. Tell me one ethnic group in the world which does not have hatredness. Sinhalese have problems with
    Tamils
    Muslims
    Burgers
    Indians
    Western countries
    EU and it’s trade laws
    Tamil Language
    Akon
    Tamil Politicians
    Indian Politicians
    Channel4
    UN
    Hague Court
    TGTE
    Those who talk about war crimes including CBK
    All Tamil news media
    Looks like the list goes on and on….

  72. In TAMIL EEzham business, a LTTE criminal is the only devil “respected” as a Tamil person.

    “unparliamentary”? Which Parliament you refer? Those who still support LTTE terrorists do not deserve any respect!

    Is Smuggler an unparlimentary word? Then who was Kuttimani and other VVT criminals?

    I have no habbit of calling a criminal as “maha maha sri…! Simply I call him/her a “dog” or any other “worst” word in Tamil or English, Malayalam or Sinhala!

    Remember Smugglers are the main players in the Tamil Eelam Business! That is why all these pro-LTTE people always “skip” the smuggling problem/smugglers between SL and India!

    In the name of the TAMIL LIBERATION, smugglers are the only group thrived and benefitted and no other people!

  73. Another News Article in Daily Mirror.lk Sri Lankan attacked in Chennai.

    In the 30 yrs of war neither the LTTE nor the Sinhalese ever touched a single visitor to our land.
    Shame on you south Indians !!

    Just as Norway discovered its own ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ South Indian politics did when Rajiv Gandhi was blasted to Bits.

    The insane politics of South India is a threat to Sri Lanka. So dont blame the Govt of Sri Lanka for Keeping the Chinese happy.

  74. Sarath,
    Did you not hear what Rajapkse said?
    He publicly told that he was fighting India’s battle,meaning Sonia wanted to destroy VP and Pottu Amman, who were responsibe for her husband’s murder.
    Of course he was helped by China, Russia(introduced by India) and many more nations includin India.

  75. Mahesh says: August 3, 2011 at 10:03 pm You are always talking about the smugglers. Please tell who they and please expose them in public.
    ———————–
    Mahesh,

    Channai tamils equiped with the sophisticated plan come to Srilanka to smuggling. Cupple of days ago one gang was caught in Pussallawa, in Nuware Eliya. They smuggling gold jewellelleries from estate tamils femails when they attending puja in their kovil. The same situation was occurerd in Naloor kovil in Jaffna and Munneswaram kovil in Chellive.

    Normally your appraising tamil culture and so on. Now you can appraising these types of smuggling also part and partial of tamil culture.

    samarasekara

  76. The refusal of Manmohan Singh to Vaiko with regard to India’s support for punitive action against Sri Lanka is fair and reasonable given the latter’s firebrand secessionist agenda. Thallapathi Vaiko has no chance of capturing Fort St. George in his lifetime. Therefore, he might as well consider seriously giving up politics and start going on pilgrimage to holy places like Kasi, Puri, Badrinath and Rameshwaram to atone for his past sins that brought pain and suffering to the Tamils of Sri Lanka. Wish Home Minister Chidambaram gave him good pilgrimage advice.

  77. uncle yogesh ,in the comment u have replied to me I referred to uncle mahesh not to u (read it again).
    but in the comment above that with the links i have answered to your view that IND never helped LTTE.
    also “a person is not Elder because his head is grey (as in the case of u) but its the knowledge within him that decide whether he is elder or not”
    ‘Drink milk and take rest” says uncle yogesh, for the moment under GOV aid programme i get infant MILK packets at a discount.But how families with small babies like me going to afford them when madam jayalaitha put ECONOMIC sanctions ?
    *****************************
    SRI says “India is the traditional enemies of India.” welldone uncle thats the only honest statement u have made.
    “India should behave like a big brother” by trying to dictate terms to others Ind is asking for trouble.
    “India should not have allowed LTTE to be defeated.”if uncle SRI can justify the nourishing of terror groups in neighbouring states pls dont blame anyone if pakistan L.E.T group blasts a bomb in CHENNAI and scores of innocent people are killed.according to u pakistan have every right to do so. shame! shame!

    also after greek general selenicus necator was partially defeated ,brahmin kautilya advised chandaragupta maurya to come to an peaceful agreement with him .it was that here after no one would interfere in others affairs,instead work
    to strengthen relations between maurya empire and bactria.(the greeks and mauryas by senerath paranavithana)

  78. Sarath (Aug 04) has the right to fool himself. I have Brahmin relatives from South India; Gujarathi, UP,
    Marwadi, Kerala relatives all of whom speak Hindi; Some relatives married outside our caste. My sister has
    Kandyan Sinhala relatives. And when we meet – both in Cbo and in India – we are one big happy family. Where on earth
    did you get this idea “Tamil nationalism is built on hatred OF THE OTHER” My relatives give two hoots to Tamil or any other Nationalism. They, like we do of them, are proud to be linked to us. But all of us sympathise when any
    community close to us is butchered and harmed periodically by those larger in number and falsely professing to pay
    homage to religions based on Compassion and Kindness.

  79. Hmmm India wants a piece of our Sri Lankan pie, therefore “lets disregard the Tamil people’s cry” on Sonia’s request. So China could have only a tiny portion and in the mean time Mahinda mama and co are having a ball…..

    God Bless the Tamils in Sri Lanka!!!!

  80. Actually one needs 273/545 to have a stable government in India.. Your 39 (40 if you include Puducherry), is worth 0 in a government made of 175.. More often than not, the government at the centre can function without your 40, with indirect support from parties sitting in the opposition (that is even if all 40 of those seats go to parties which are not from the centre).. Even if the DMK walks out of the government tomorrow the UPA coalition will still be in power..

  81. Yes,

    But first we have to find an able courier to deliver the VP’s Charge sheet to hell.

    May be Vaiko can help after some time.

  82. meanwhile appalling evidence that 40000 deaths figure is accurate http://www.defence.lk/new.asp?fname=20110703_02. Mr.gorden weiss was the first to make this comment.
    expert panel then included it in the report.a sinhala chavunist say “darus qoute frm weiss,weiss qoute frm darus,so no
    one to claim responsibility for the figure”. see what a baseless argument is that ?

  83. Congratulations DBS for getting an award. I think you are a unique case writing from Canada about Sri Lanka to Sri Lanka newspapers and getting award from Sri Lanka. keep it up.

    Thank you Jeevi………..DBSJ

  84. Thank you for your response.

    Few things that I would like to clarify, in addition to what I had written. All, including Vaiko, are aware of the possible outcome of the meeting, “Nothing”. Vaiko is the president of MDMK, which is not recognised by the Election commision of India. His party has zero MLA in the state and 1 MP in parliament. But, he could meet any national leader, including PM as and when he seeks an appointment. That is largely because of his good conduct and contact. This is not possible for TN leaders like Karunanidhi. As a person, he is honest, speaks his mind and there is a space for him TN politics. Lot of people have commented that he is ajoker and useless. But, he is amongst the “decent” politicians of the state and he is trying his level best to help the tamils in India and abroad. As I mentioned before, he will become a key player as and when non congress led government come to power in the centre.

  85. More evidence of Tamil hatred for “the other”:

    Sri Lankan pilgrims attacked in Chennai
    http://print.dailymirror.lk/news/front-page-news/52111.html

    Tamil identity and nationalism is based on nothing but hatred of non-Tamils.

    Tamil Eelam is a racist idea – a Tamil only, monoethnic state where even Tamil speaking Muslims were slaughtered.

    That is why even their political representatives are extremist and fixated only on “Tamil”

    The Sinhalese on the other hand are far more open minded and liberal when compared to the Tamils.

    All the Sri Lankan progressives are Sinhalese;

    – Vikramabahu Karunaratne
    – Nimalka Fernando
    – Jehan Perera
    – Sanjana Hattotuwa
    – Jayantha Dhanapala
    – Chandrika Kumaratunga
    – Vasudeva Nanayakkara
    – Ranil Wickramasinghe
    – Kumari Jayawardene
    – Tissa Witharana
    – Austin Fernando
    – Tisaranee Gunasekera

    etc etc

    Tamils only have extremists and racists speaking for them.

    Look at who is in the TNA and their leaders in Tamil Nadu.

    Sarath Fonseka was right when he said they are “a pack of jokers”

  86. Laughable. It is Tamil Nadu that is obsessed with Sri Lanka judging by the the screams and shouts of the Tamil politicians, their meetings with the Indian Prime minister demanding boycotts and sanctions, their people who set themselves on fire and attack Sri Lankan pilgrims.

  87. Please give me a break. Tamil nationalism is built on nothing but hatred of “the other.” It is the object of hatred that changes from time to time. If there was no “other” to hate, the Tamil community would naturally fall into intra-ethnic violence ie Tamil on Tamil violence. From Brahmins to Hindi language to North Indians to Malayalis to Buddhism to Jainism, to Sinhalese, to Sri Lanka the object of hatred just goes on.

    The current ‘flavour of the month’ is Sri Lanka.

  88. It should be “Shame on you Tamils” not “Shame on you South Indians” because the Malayalis, Kannadigas and Telugu people have no problem with Sri Lanka or the Sinhalese.

    Nothing new, Tamils are historically notorious for attacking Buddhism and Jainism in the past (many of them sought refuge in Sri Lanka as a result). This is just a continuation of that legacy of hatred.

  89. ”The Sri Lankan Tamils are the natural allies of India”.

    Is it?

    Then why LTTE was on a mission of killing all the Tamils who support Indian intiatives over the ethnic issue? EPRLF ran to India and live in Orissa.

    LTTE criminal medias barked that LTTE defeated the “4th biggest army”. Indian PM Rajiv Gandhi and many others were killed by Tamil criminals in Tamil Nadu.

    Taditional allies never do such worst things to India!

  90. But Kuttimani was not tried for smuggling. If you h]know any body is a smuggler put him before law and convict him. No use in talking like this.

  91. Now only Machiaveli is ruling from the foreign office there. When Kautilya rules once more these things will change.

  92. Chellam,

    I don’t deny some abnormal happenings in India. I only said there are mechanisms for accountability in india and these are being looked into.

    For all the complexities of India there are only few serious abberations in India.

    In a minuscule country like yours it is happening quite often in a much larger scale compared to your population.

    Chellam. Do play regularly. They say ‘all work and no play makes jack a dull boy’.

    Do play a lot. Play games like cricket, kabaddi, hockey kho kho.

    You will be nearer to God through foot ball than through meditation, so said Swami Vivekananda.

    Take care dear infant.

  93. We have to distinguish between the ‘political Tamil’ and the ‘ordinary Tamil’.

    The ‘ordinary Tamil’ is a very very nice person. I often tell my friends ‘Ethical standards of ordinary Tamils is even one notch above that of the Sinhalese. Even at the height of 83’ mayhem I could take my child to a Tamil doctor.” It is heartening to see how TAmils accord their traditional welcome even to Rajapakshe though they are not inclined to vote for him. Tough the media carries only the voice of Vaiko travelers to Tamilnadu bring along stories only of their courtesy, respect and all forms of assistance towards all visitors from Sri Lanka.

    But the ‘political Tamil’ is a different beast. Comments by Tamil readers on Sinhala Buddhists in this blog is only an indication.

    The most marked feature of the ‘political Tamil’ is his total unconcern for the predicament of the ordinary Tamil in furthering of his political ambitions. Untruth and exaggeration are the main weapons of his armory. While prefering to live among the Sinahalse in Colombo than in Jaffna or Batticalo they promote a ‘political solution’ to those living ‘over there’. They make sure that Sinahlese are kept on constant tension. Their methodology is ‘by hook or by crook’. They extended their unmitigated support to the most ruthless terrorist outfit the world has seen.

  94. update uncle mahesh that would make u see that it is not ‘some” but ‘MASSIVE’ abnormalities happening in ur country.
    in every state of india are are “few serious” (according to u)(after all they are all serious)problems.
    SL is minuscule i have already accepted that, but as your fellow indian uncle Yogesh Karayalar (after some initial refusals)as accepted IND too is minuscule.

  95. Soma,
    You have coined an appropriate new phrase to our vocabulary. Using your expression, let me add that enemies of ordinary Tamils are not Sinhalese as the ‘political Tamils’ continue to propagate but the very ‘political Tamils’ that has an inbuilt pre Waddukkodai mentality.

    I wish ordinary Tamils differentiate the difference between pre Waddukkodai mentality and genuine Tamil grievances. I am sure, if ordinary Tamils get together and demand the government put their genuine grievances right, no Sinhalese would object it. Indeed they would back it.

    And thereafter, if they integrate with Sinhalese like the Muslims, once again sky will be the limit for Tamils.

  96. Hi Dilshan,

    I deplore the attacks on our people in Chennai with out any reservations.

    You are wrong to say that no visitor was ever attacked by the Sinhalese. There was a murder of a South Indian pilgrim to Kathirgamam or Kataragama in Matara for being a Tamil in the 1980’s.

    I believe his name was Thalapathy and he was attacked with an axed on the head while having his hair cut.

    Morons are everywhere in this planet!

  97. Nothing new, Tamils are historically notorious for attacking Buddhism and Jainism in the past (many of them sought refuge in Sri Lanka as a result). This is just a continuation of that legacy of hatred.???????

    You are dead wrong Sarath!

    Buddhism flourished for a while in South India and there were many Buddhist Tamil scholars contributed to it’s growth in both sides of the Palk Straight at that time. Please check your history!

  98. But Kuttimani started to kill the policemen who were behind him to find his criminal activities.

    He killed a Tamil person in Kattuvan who had some ‘deals” with this smuggler. During that murder operation “podiyan” Prabhakaran was a GUARD-MAN. Later Kuttimani became a bigwig in TELO and shameless Amirthalingam appointed him to the parliament. The rise of a smuggler depleted all the morals and respect.

    Smugglers are asked to pay fines always in any country. But in Sri lanka the smuggler- sydicate started to talk POLITICS. He thought TAMIL EELAM was the best choice for FREE smuggling and best way to maintain his wives in VVT and Chennai!

    Even his co-smuggler Thangathurai became “father of the nation” in TELO. Many laughed and get angry about the fate of this EELAM and TAMIL. I felt sad for the fate of Tamils and Mahathma gandhi who was the father of Indian nation.

    Luckily we did not have a smuggler/criminal as the “Father” of EELAM NATION.

    Kuttimani’s PODIYAN Prabhakaran later became NATIONAL LEADER and killed, robbed Tamils.

    You Indian guys are crying for a criminal trained by a smuggler.

    Jaffna political leadership surrendered to a smuggler criminal gang for the salvation of the Tamil people. The fate is now clear to every one.

  99. Tamils are the HISTORICAL allies of the Sinhalese too. Did you for get the SL kings always ran to Tamil kings for help. They did not go to China or Pakistan!

    Remember Mahavansa was written by a member of the Tamil Royal house of Pallava kings. Bhikku Mahanama was a member of Pallava Royal house and not a Sinhala.

    Dont bring the KINGS and QUEENs of the past in the current British created Language problem!

  100. Sarath Fonseka was right till he joined the club I mean when contested in elections and tried to become a politician and he could not even become “a pack of Jokers”. Now he is spending his “quality” time in Prison.
    Sinhala only act – This bill was passed by Srilankan Govt to make sure everyone lives happily in Srilanka.
    Jaffna Library was burnt down to make sure that everybody understands how Sinhalaes love non sinhalaes people.
    Black July was very important in Srilanka since it enlightened the world about Sinhalaese love and affection towards Tamils.

    Till today Buddhist monks in Srilanka have the Sinhala Buddhism mindset and spread the hatredness among the community towards other religions and Languages in Srilanka.

  101. India may have plan to annex Srilanka in future. No doubt about that. I pray Srilanka is united and people have better understanding and good leadership to avoid such catastrophic situation.

  102. Buddhism and Jainism and their followers were PERSECUTED in Tamil lands. Only a small minority of Tamils were ever Buddhists and they practiced their religion IN SPITE of the violence and hatred they were subjected to. One of the biggest massacres of Jains took place at the hands of Tamil Hindus in South India. Many Tamil Buddhists escaped to Sri Lanka in order to practice their Buddhist religion peacefully, and overtime became part of the Sinhalese community. Even in Sri Lanka they were not safe because Tamil Hindus kept on invading the country and attacking and destroying Buddhist temples and killing Buddhist monks and nuns. The Tamil Tigers continued this grand Tamil tradition of iconoclasm and ethnic/religious hatred towards the “other”. Even the biggest massacre of Christians in Sri Lanka took place at the hands of a Tamil Hindu king.

  103. Does not change the fact that the Sinhalese community is far more open minded and liberal than the Tamil community. Tamils have no intellectuals or liberal minded people of any stature. The few that existed (like Kadirgamar, Thiruchelvam, Kethesh Loganathan) were killed by Tamils themselves. Only extremists and intolerant chauvinists find a place among the Tamil community (think TNA, Vaiko, Nedumaran, Karunanidhi, Jayalalitha). Just read Tamilweek for example and the vast majority of articles are by SINHALESE liberals and progressives.

    Tamils are hardly the people to talk about “spreading hatred towards other religions and languages” — historically that has been a Tamil trait.

  104. We say in tamil that ‘it is not wise argue with a fool because, the audience will be unable to distinguish the fool’.
    In my opinion they are two kind of Sinhalese, one category is the political thugs who unleash racial hatred against tamils to do their political business. They propagate Sinhala Buddist hegemony, anti tamil rhetoric and sole ownership of their country.

    The other category is listening these propaganda and choose the most hardcore anti-Tamil veeraya or sooraya as their leader. This is the ongoing process in Sri-Lanka since independence.Your racists political thugs have been resposible for the plight of the Tamils.

    Your political thugs introduced violent culture in Sri-Lanka. From anagariga Tharpala did that in 1905 against muslims, Bandarayake did that against Tamils in 1957. And to the Biggest thug of all JR and his sycophants did that in 1983 again against Tamils. You both are the typical samples of the mahavamsa mind set. Tamils have to loose their indentity and become Sinhalese. Then the problem will be over. I want to ask one question in this era of globalization if you are so fond of India why dont you become the next state of india… your poulation and land area can match India’s one single state. You will not. Because you will lose your sinhala buddist hegemony over the rest of the communities.

    Listen up guys, Untill and Unless the TAMIL NATIONAL QUESTION IS ANSWERED THERE WILL BE NO PEACE IN SRI-LANKA. YOU CAN WIN WARS WITH THE HELP OF ROGUE COUNTRIES BUT YOU WILL NEVER WIN PEACE. How come the Tamil people in NE over whelmingly voted for TNA in the local counsil elections.. WE ARE A NATION; WE HAVE OUR OWN LANGUAGE, CULTURES AND TRADITIONS, A CONTIGUOS GEOGRAPHICAL AREA AS OUR HOME LAND. IF WE ARE LEFT ALONE WE WILL BUILD OUR COUNTRY OUR ECONOMY ON OUR OWN.

    THE TAMILS IN SINGAPORE, MALAYSIA AND INDIA ARE THRIVING AND PROGRESSING IN EVERY FIELD. TAMIL NADU IS THE THIRD LARGEST CONTRIBUTOR TO INDIA’S ECONOMY. TAMIL NADU IS ALSO THE MOST URBANISED STATE IN INDIA, HAS THE HIGHEST NO. OF BUSINESS ENTERPRISES AND STANDS 2ND IN TOTAL EMPLOYMENT 9.97% IN INDIA COMPARED TO THE POPULATION SHARE OF INDIA 6%.TAMILNADU’s LITERACY RATE is 80.3%. TN HAS 37 UNIVERSITIES, 454 ENGINEERING COLLEGES, 566 ARTS AND SCIENCE COLLEGES, 5167 HIGH SCHOOLS, 5054 HIGHER SECONDARY SHOOLS, 34335 ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. TN PRODUCES THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF ENGINEERING GRADUATES IN INDIA AOUND 175000 EVERY YEAR. TN HAS 2ND LARGEST TOURISM INDUSTRY IN INDIA WITH A GROWTH RATE OF 16%. TN HAS THE 2ND LARGEST FILM INDUSTRY AND 2ND LARGEST SOFT WEAR EXPORTER IN INDIA NOT TO MENTION THE HOME OF NUCLEAR AND MISSILE CAPABILITIES OF INDIA

    If Tamils can get along with other nationalities in their respective countries, THE STATE OF THAMIL-EELAM can get along with SRI-LANKA and thrive.

  105. Thanks Mr.Prime Minister

    1.Till about 2-3 years ago, almost all Tamils without differences celebrated Independence day. Do you know the percentage of Tamils celebrating Independence day has come down a lot
    Thanks for your humanitarian service in Vanni killing Field
    2.India is friend of SL State
    Thanks for confirming nurturing a Butcher
    3.Do you know what price the Future India will pay for atleast not taking care of the SL Tamils post 2009-June?

    4.Do you know what kind of seeds you idiots in New Delhi have sown in the minds of Tamils?

    5.All you guys in New Delhi(along with the MK and his family) have buried long term intersts of your own people

    I would like caution, that Union of India is moving away from the fundamental principles of humanity to which we are known for; it is moving to a disastraous course by feigning ignorance of the state of affairs in SL Tamil region. It is not too late to pull back

    Open your ears and listen; open your eyes and see. Please dont see just immediate economic boom; it is just an illusion; the history will tell stories about period of great progression. But basic human nature has not changed much and wont change till it exists in this planet. Tamils have recorded everything that is happening in SL; we may forgive Sinhalese but not New delhi.

  106. are u mad ? we thamizh would never integrate with rascist sinhalease.dont u ever try to undermine our liberation struggle.leela is a GOSL agent in the guise of a peace dove.

  107. Are you a fool?

    Nalanda, the oldest Buddhist learning centre was burnt down by Muslims and not by Hindus. Who is saving the ‘remains” of buddhism in India now? Bamiyan Buddha statues were destroyed by Taliban.

    But Sinhalese allowed Christian Jayawardenes to “save” Kelani Raja Maha Vehara which became the hub of criminals in robes. Buddha Rakkita was the Chief monk of the vihara and planed the killing of Banadranayake and killed the ‘nationalist” for a few dollars from the Christians and Jeyawardene clan!

    Tamil buddhist Monk Mahanama wrote Mahavansa which is now the Sinhala racist bible!

    Tamil Buddhists created great epics like Silappathikaram and Manimekala.

    Do you know why Askoka’s kingdom was unable to survive next generation?

    Do you know why king Mahasena(?) chased out all the Buddhist monks?

    Do you know Buddha Ghosa who compiled TRIPITAKA? He was a Tamil and came from Kanchipuram!

    Sofar nothing available to support your claims! Buddhism vanished because of the lack of followers. Monks are part of the destruction of Buddhism in India.

    In Sri lanka, though many claim as Buddhists, they follow a “Parangi Buddhism” which is modeled like Vatican. Buddhist monks never seen with the begging bowl. It is a sign of degradation of Buddhism in Sri lanka and opposite to the teachings of Buddha who was a HINDU prince!

  108. Uncle bernard has unleashed a fiery (but a typical elam)comment but it lacks substance .
    1.he says “anagariga Tharpala did that in 1905 …” u are probably refering to 1915 riot.(apologies if u were not refering to it).
    get your facts right .The 1915 riots were due mainly due to provoactive tactics of coastel moors(not the ceylon moors)
    and the intentional inefficiency practised by british adminstration in addressing the bhuddhist grievances .but i would not justfy any attack on the basis of grievances.
    anyway your comment on that shows u have no understanding about that incident.so i recommend u to read “100 days in ceylon under martial law (by armand de souza) first print 1916 third print 2006 (young socialist pub).

    2.”tamils have to loose their indentity ….” can u show any example where sinhala culture have over powered cultural traditions of tamils or forcibly convereted to buddhism ? must be dr. ambedkar (a rascist GOSL agent)
    3.”if you are so fond of India” whom are u refering to ? one genuine tamil rights activits mr. vaiko says SL is conspiring with china against IND another one ,uncle bernard says the inverse.
    4.by definition tamil elam is a ‘seperate state’ ‘where only tamils can live'(as evident by the ethnic cleansing of muslim,sinhala,anti LTTE people).so how can u COMPARE TN which is not a seperate state or singapore or malaysia
    with an unrealistic tamil elam ?

  109. I don’t have exact statistics but it seems Tamilnadu has the largest percentage of Capslock users in India as well..

    Perhaps you should go and have a look at the full election results of the Eastern province and see how ‘contigous’ your so called homeland is..

    Sri Lanka has equally impressive statistics and as the economy recovers from the effects of the Vaddukkodai war, the statistics will only get better..

    If you want your country/nadu why don’t you fight for it in Tamilnadu? Our island is too small to carve out ethnic bantustans to please the selfish dreams of a few.. Try it and you will soon see those numbers you quoted for Tamilnadu cannot be maintained outside a united India

  110. But still so many bad thing happening in Srilanka, Last chance to finding political solution for long lasting peace is nearly broken
    stage, unwise brutal regime dragging the country again in to dark era, DBSJ , do you really satisfied about your writing made enough
    positive changes in Srilanka where we all come from?

    Ordinary srilankans who have the voting power to change the future still in the illusion and not realising the ‘Power Hungry’ ruling class
    lead their life into more difficult phase, and we haven’t got honest leadership yet to taking the country forward with equality & diversity.
    (I mean not speaking/propaganda about this or but do the real action in the ground for change ) Please think about it and write more.
    Best wishes & Live long!

  111. Is there any charge sheet about it. Is there any conviction in any court of Law. Thangadurai and Kuttimani were tried and convicted not for smuggling. Give some solid proof, sir.

  112. Bernard Antony,
    It is abundantly clear from what you have written that you are another political Tamil that Soma described and you would settle for anything less than a Bantu land. You’d better remember that Tamils of the North are a minority among Tamils. So, what you have projected is a view of the minority of the minority.

    Majority of the majority by far shall neither give political Tamils any chance to form Bantu land projects nor another trousered Gandhi to create another Velu to retrain pregnant women and children as suicide bombers and send them to bomb our buses, trains and public places and murder sick, old and the young and reignite terrorism once again with a new vigour.

    Majority by far are happy and confident that Rajapakses are taking up all issues separately and confidently. And they are solving all them one by one in their own way.

    You can carry-on writing your wish list and spread all kinds of lies and slander as much as you like. As for us, we are happy that the caravan is moving unstoppably.

  113. Sarath asks for a “break” and rambles on. You don’t need one, friend. Your entire brain looks shattered.
    You have chosen a few lines from one of India’s great sons of learning – Prince Gauthama. Don’t waste time. You will never learn the essense of it. You sound raving mad when you imagine Sri Lanka is India’s “flavour of the month”
    Have you been without food for a while? Where have you heard of countries gobbling others on a monthly or even yearly basis. Tamilnadu’s immediate worry is – to improve its Power capacity, the need to provide clean water, more and better housing etc that takes all their time. You boys are good enough to do each other in. You don’t need outside help.

    Get some good sleep, kollo, after a good meal. You need both badly. You will find a better India when you wake up.
    As to a better Sri Lanka – now that’s another matter. Your guess is as good as mine.

    ISS

  114. you are supposed have your bantu land somewhere in Orissa or Bengal. Thamileelam is our native land. you are lucky, our real neibour Tamil Nadu is a part of the union of India. Other wise the Tamil Nadu army will give you your bantu land so that you will live their happily ever after. Do you remember the Turkish invasion in Cyprus. The great Turkish army is still standing guard for the follow turks there.
    It is matter of time your occupied army will be made withdraw from our home land.

    Bernard

  115. DELETED…………DBSJ

    DBSJ RESPONDS:
    Ottakkoothar, you are exceeding your limits and abusing the freedom given you on this forum.

  116. Leela

    Don’t worry. The Envoy from Delhi could be there in your neighbourhood soon to help you sort out the mess and assist GoSL in the ” political solution ” process. I am sure you would welcome our Envoy with wide open arms.

  117. 1.uncle bernard has made himself a fool by making CONTRASTING statements initially by accepting futility of militancy at one stage.”YOU CAN WIN WARS.. YOU WILL NEVER WIN PEACE”.and then threatning with “military action” with a imaginary “Tamil nadu military”.
    2.if u certainly believe in “YOU CAN WIN WARS …YOU WILL NEVER WIN PEACE” why didn’t give that advice to LTTE ?
    3.no one challenge the violence unleashed by section of sinhalese on tamils but refusal to accept the the 30 year old violence unleashed by LTTE on SRI LANKANS is further evidence of your wisdom.
    4.uncle bernard if any war comes pls just don’t stop by posting comments praising the war , fight in the frontlines and experience the war.
    5. voting for TNA doesn’t mean that vote was for a seperate state.
    6.‘The mark of wisdom is to discern the truth from whatever source it is heard’ (Thirukkural-42) and u have definitely failed in that.

  118. The common thing among all the Ceylon Tamils is almost all of them have been stigmatized and hurt physically emotionally and psycologically by the state terrorism unleashed by the successive regimes after the independence.

    I did not and do not support the violent tactics of the LTTE but those are the direct response for the state sponsored pogroms took place time and time again. Speaking of state terrorism, the last phase of the terror and horror are well documented internationally in the form of books,staements and documentaries. They will be perhaps, the part of your Mahavamsa history.

    Imagine you are the elder sister in your house , you keep intimidating abusing and thretening your younger sister in the absence of your parents. It is normal for your younger sister to escape from you and perhaps teaching a lesson or two for you too. A person even with an interlectual capacity of a 6-year-old child will understand this.

    When I was 15 years old, I was cycling towards downtown Jaffna,at the boundary of municipality, a lot
    of people who were returning from the city centre shouting, the town is burning dont do there. Then I returned home and I asked my dad who were burning the Jaffna town and why… why didn’t the police stop this. after a pause… he said ‘police themselves are doing this and this is our fate’. What happened that day was burning down of the Jaffna Public library by Sinhala thugs.

    I had similar even horrific experiece on the 24th of July 1983 when the Sri-Lankan amry indiscriminately shot and killed innocent people who were travelling in a mini bus towards jaffna town, this happened in Sandilipay.

    These are the real life experiences teach us it is absolutely impossible to live under a Sinhala majority regime and with an occupied army.

    IN your words ‘The caravan carrying the war criminals Rajapaksa brothers to Hague’ is moving unstoppably

    bernard

  119. ‘Infant I still have hope
    one day you will grow up
    To become a grown up
    Drink a lot milk and
    get 18 hours of sleep’
    Every day……. Uncle bernard.

    1.I am a plain speaking straight talking individual. I am against any kind of violence.Winning peace is accomodating all communities in the process of decision making, finding a mechanism by means of constitutional changes and judicial military reforms for participation of minoroties in governing and so on. There is no light at the end of the tunnel in our case.

    2.I always condemn the violent tactics of LTTE. If they listened to any body, their fate would not be like this.

    3.I do not want any war. I do not want to participate in any kind of violent war.

    4. Voting TNA means Tamils do not trust the current Sinhala regime and they lost hope in that regime. Winning peace also means winning the hearts and minds of Tamils. That is not happening instead triumphalism and gingoism prevail.

    5. I was wrong with the year in which the riot against Muslims happened. My point is even before the independence there were ‘leaders’ among the Sinhala community instigating and initiating violence against minority communities.

    6. if you observe the multicultural or ethnically diverse countries they have a federal set up to protect and treat all their citizen equally. I do not advocate for separation but a state for Tamils like in India or a province like in Québec, Canada. The Indian Ocean Island formally known as CEYLON can have two states TAMIL-EELAM AND SRI-LANKA within a unitary system. That is the bottom line.

    bernard

  120. 2. The Tamils in the western coastal areas like Puttalam Chillaw and Nigambo speak Tamil at home but they pose themselves as Sinhalese in puplic places.

    3. Rajapaksa regime claims that India is their partner in crimes.

    4. We the Ceylon Tamils are wasting our time with feuding Sinhala regimes who are trying to systematically erase the indentity our people while tamils in the other countries are thriving and progressing with their talents and freedom of opportunities.

    bernard.

  121. 1.dear uncle, I am really sad about the torments u had to underwent.but this is something not specific to u accept that all ethnicities in SL underwent this suffering.if arguments are going to based on the count of dead bodies or the sufferings in their respective groups ,everyone in sri lanka can come with massive numbers.(therefore is no justifica.. to seperate state)
    2.sri lankan tamils and all other ethnicities have been living coexistly frm 1000’s of years despite occasional riots.that is a FACT you cant refuse.
    3.I don’t justify 83 riot or library burning but to make it a balanced account include the assasination of soldiers led to (83 riot)
    killing 3 policeman in (unp or tulf )election rally.(led to library burning).LTTE repeatedly engaged in such tactics.
    4.read mahavamsa u do not seems to have read it.
    5.as usual CONTRASTING comments u say “do not support the violent tactics” then u make ” military threats.” at the sponsorship of TN army.
    6.but for a person with “an interlectual capacity of a 6-year-old child” it is crystal clear that u are a LTTE activist.u just included “do not support the violent tactics” to pretend only.
    not mentioning the violence unleashed by LTTE is evidence of that.
    7.ALso if u like u can explain how “your younger sister” character justify the killing of thousands of tamils by LTTE ? 😛
    8.anyway i am not really interested in your “racist big sis and
    very good young sister” online read only documentary.

  122. uncle. dbsj i didnt put a ‘smile face ‘ instead it was a ‘sad mood”in my comment .sorry if that ‘graphic expression’ hurt anyone feelings.

  123. posing as Sinhalese ? how ? can u explain this ? dear uncle your comment is very interesting for me as I also live in north western province and i have never seen this special” posing as sinhalese” behaviour in tamils or muslims in any place.please explain it with examples.

    “Drink a lot milk” pls see what i said to uncle yogesh about this(after coming to an argument with me now he is nowhere to be seen) 🙂

  124. “Thamileelam is our native land”

    What you claim as Tamil Eelam is our native land as well.. And we will defend the rights of all our citizens to live in any part of the island, at all times and by all means ..

    “you are lucky, our real neibour Tamil Nadu is a part of the union of India. Other wise the Tamil Nadu army will give you your bantu land so that you will live their happily ever after”

    Well first create your Tamilnadu country and ‘great’ Tamilnadu army before dreaming about an invasion.. I am sure the we Sri Lankans and the rest of India will be awed by your Thermobaric T-shirt burners and biological excreta bombs..

    “Do you remember the Turkish invasion in Cyprus. The great Turkish army is still standing guard for the follow turks there.”

    Since your such a fan of Middle Eastern examples, before you talk of ‘pie in the sky’ Northern Cyprus sceanrios, you probably should read up on the ‘Six Day War’ and the ‘Yom Kippur War’, where a determined Israel held out vastly numerically superior Arab armies who wanted to ‘wipe them off the map’..

    ‘Never again’ Mr. Antony ‘Never again’.. Or as we say ‘Malath nodemu bim angalakwath apa ipadunu mey Lak polowe’

  125. And what proof do you have of Number 2, did you telepathically communicate with the Negombo Tamils from Jaffna or from your present Western abode..

    Non-tribal Tamils like Mr. Fernandopulle got elected from Negombo (and his wife now after his murder by your proxy ‘army’) without compromising his Tamil identity.. He or any other Tamil in North Western Coast do not need to pose as a Sinhalese to get votes or live their lives.. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the Eastern Veddas, who only recently seem to be regaining their identity after many decades..

  126. Thanks for your advice Mr.Sriram for brothers and sisters of Srilanka!.Even if a non congress govt rules India that is not going fix the problems faced by SL tamils.You have had non congress government at the centre before.JJ( new bouver girl) and company can back all the way,a BJP led govt at the centre and the things will remain the same.By the way if India starts to throw its weight around south asia as you suggest whatever happened to good neighbourliness policy!true,Congress have been reduced to 5 members out of 234 seats.How many other parties can claim any meaningful representation in any of the other 27 states of India? Please do enlighten us ( brotheres and sisters)?Bashing Delhi is a favourite pastime for unarvaalarhal like yourself but please get real! I clearly remember this same vaiko( as rightly called by Prabakaran’s father as a Karupputh thundu pota Komali) gave an interview to an Australian tamil radio pleading with the then LTTE to co operate with the BJP govt years ago in vain!

  127. Even after the “pack of jokers”jibe Sarath F polled more votes in the north than Mahinda R in the presidential elections! Does not that tell a story?

  128. uncle u cant name NE ‘tamil ‘ only elam (like a section of not racist tamils have named tamilnadu) because there is a considerable poulation of other nationalities ‘traditionally’ living there.since u have only been mentioning injustices happend to u, i would inform to u that this would be something happening to others.

    i think sri lanka means “resplendent land” and not sinhala only land.

  129. 5.you chose the suitable on-line identity for you, Since you are an infant you do not get my points. My point is if TN is a separate country, they will definitely send their forces to protect the follow Tamils from genocide. I mentioned this for soma’sbantu land triumphalistic
    gingoistic comment. You guys just don’t dream that there is no body to answer and you carry on your rampage as you want

    6.Branding any body who speak out for Tamils as LTTE is not a new phenomena among Sinhalese. I happened to meet minister Lalith to receive Mahapola scholarship few decades ago. Bus loads of students arrived for the ceremony from Jaffna. He was asking (joking) is there any Tiger on board.. I replied him (joking) you are talking to one. But I am sure you are not joking.

    7. Once the British (‘parents’) left the Island the majority community (bigsisiter) should have gained the trust of the little sister (minority communities) with its responsible behavior and actions.
    instead intimidations, in the form of pogroms, abuse of majority power by removing the minority rights protection amendments from the constitution, planed colonization of Sinhalese with government aid in Tamil home land lead to formation of Tamil militancy.

    LTTE was the symtom of a disease and the culmination of the actions of Sinhala budist hegimonicracists regimes. They did not fall from the sky over night. They were stupid enough to dig their own grave by their violent terror tactics.

    The irony is the war criminals mahinda and gotha are also thinking and behaving the way ‘velu’ and co.did. And digging their own graves. only differece is NOT a single sinhala woman was raped by a tiger soldier.

    But the Sinhala army thugs cut off body parts of women and rape them and dismember their bodies, according to one army officer’s eye witness account.

  130. Bernard

    “It is matter of time your occupied army will be made withdraw from our home land.”

    Where do you recon Colombo Tamils and estate Tamils should be after the ‘withdrawal’? They will have to withdraw as well?

  131. Mr. Frederick,

    You seem to be one those , who make sweeping comments about India, with out even visiting India once or getting sufficient facts)

    Though India is not a 10 out 10 score , country, it is not 2 out 10 country either.
    The most important thing about India is , it has a free press. Even during one of the darkest periods of post 1947 India, the emergency, journalists didn’t vanish in vans of any colour.

    This so called, malayali mafia in Indian Govt. , I have come across only in this blog. No leading India mentions this word.

    If you consider the facts, Kerala is a very small state in India and Malayalis make hardly about 3% population
    of India(and it is reducing according to the latest sensus. because of the high literacy rate of Malayalis).

    Though malayalis are inteligent people in general, by shear lack of numebers alone, they can not dominate in the Indian govt.

    Having said that, sizable no. of malayalis are in Indian army (one of the highest as a percentage of population ),and as you and me are comfortably blogging here now, they are defending our borders and fighting terrorists , staking thier life along with other Indian soldiers.

    Hence don’t insult malayalis ( fyi, I am not a malayali r sinhalese r tamilian.)

  132. I lived in N/W province. The Tamil medium schools under Catholic Churche were switched to Sinhala medium in 1933 by the Bishop Edmond Peris who was the bishop of N/W. Even the the schools founded by Dr.E.M.V.Naganathan’s wife’s family in Puttalam are now 100% Sinhala medium schools. Few Catholic Tamils resisted and still their schools are Tamil medium.

    Further those people dont”POSE” as Sinhalaese anywhere. They are bi-lingual and the rest of the Lankans must learn from them.Even Rukmanidevi, the Nigtingale of Sinhala cinema from the same area and was a Tamil came from Thoothukudy.

    “Sinhalization” of the N/W province happened long before JRJ or SWRD by the Catholic Church.

    I hope you are a Catholic/Christian,and what is your Tamil problem?

  133. “ஒட்டக் கூத்தன் பாட்டுக்கு இரட்டைத் தாழ்ப்பாள்”.

  134. another great victory achieved ! while the racist GOSL is failing at every aspect we section of absolutely not racist tamils are “thriving and progressing”(copyright -mr bernard) and achieving a series of endless victories.http://bit.ly/rd8VMo
    this is the most recent victory we have achieved.anyway we never approve “violent tactics”,but we would continue with our democratic assault program.yours truly, your real life (i mean not celluloid) super hero
    seeman

  135. (How can India become a Super Power if they are so scared of China?)

    Aha.. You want to make trouble between Ind & china ???
    You are the most dengerous ppl in the world. Dont think INDIA can stand alone in ASIA. INDIA need help from SL or even MALDIVES.

    Western countries also need to make more problems in ASIA & send UN ARMY.

    Dont foolish & blind from your super power. We should stand united. Then Western can not do anything.

    Remember what happends to GERMANY SUPER POWER. Same can happen if you try to show your Super Power.

    So in this case INDIA PM is correct.

  136. Guys, Nobody (Country) have SUPER POWER till they unite. Even CHINA , INDIA or RUSSIA can not stand alone. They needs others help too. We should think as ASIANS. Look at the WESTERN. They all unite but wants to separate ASIANS & MIDDLE EAST. That is a long term Super plan. Once they hit USSR.
    So if anybody wants to divide INDIA , then talk about Super Power.
    Super Power will make NORTH INDIA & SOUTH INDIA. ( 2 separate countries ) like WEST & EAST GERMAN.

  137. You are a infant, you don’t have any other work. We are grown up. I don’t want to waste my time in answering infants. Drink milk and take rest. Sweet dreamsda kanna.

  138. Sivananthan, you are exceeding limits. There should be a basic decency in communicating with others. You look at your comments. No body uses the words like fool, idiot, joker, barking etc as frequently as you. DBSJ is generous enough to express what we think really. But there is a limit.

    If you are affected by LTTE then others are not responsible for that. You vent your anger by abusing Tamils of Tamil Nadu. You don’t have any right to disparage Indian Tamils. You blame Indian Tamils for the internal problem of your country. I have told you many times that Tamil Nadu Tamils are not responsible for the present plight of Eazham Tamils. Major reasons for the present plight of Eazham Tamils are the Sinhalese majoritarianism, India’s selfish attitude and the disunity among you (eazham tamils). You can take these three factors in the order of their importance. If you are mentally affected because of LTTE atrocities consult a psychiatrist to come out of the trauma.

    You are swiftly drifting away from the very basic decency in communication. You say that Tamils of Tamil Nadu are after their niece (sister’s daughter). Majority of the Indian Tamils are Hindus. Hindus do not have an authority to decide the marital affairs. If you take Quaran it clearly gives an exhaustive list of prohibited relationship between the bride and bridegroom. In Hinduism we do not have an authority like this. It has evolved over time. Brother, sister, cousin, nephew, and niece these are all the relationships that came into existence very late in the existence of human race. Cross cousin marriage and marrying the niece would have come into existence because of some advantages like retaining the property and the ease of finding out the partner. I am not sure whether Eazham tamils do cross cousin marriage and marrying the niece. Cross cousin marriages and marrying niece are coming down after realizing the medical truth. You project as if marrying the niece is a heinous crime.

    Various types of marriages that exist in the society are strict monogamy (strictly one to one and no widow/widower remarriage, only 20% of the world population), serial monogamy (many but only one at a time). Other types of marriages are: Polyandry is where a woman can have more than one husband at the same time and is generally divided into fraternal polyandry (where the husbands are brothers) and non-fraternal polyandry (where the husbands are not related), Polygyny is the practice of a man having multiple wives simultaneously and has been historically the most popular form of marriage. A specialized version is called sororal polygyny where there man’s wives are sisters. Polygynandry is group marriage that involves multiple men married to multiple women simultaneously.Levirate and sororate are other types of marriage that can be either polygynous or monogamous depending on how many spouses are involved at the time. Regarding cross cousin marriage Matrilateral Cross Cousin Marriage is the permitted one among the hindus and Fatrilateral cross cousin marriage is strictly not permitted in hindus. But Islam permits both the types of cross cousin marriage.

    A marriage is said to be consanguineous when the union is between two people, genetically related, by descent, from a common ancestor. All human societies however primitive or geographically isolated, prohibit the mating of first degree relatives, namely the matings between parents and children and brothers and sisters (incest). Any marriage between relatives less close than sibs (brothers and sisters) or parents and offspring are not necessarily outlawed, but the dividing line between legal and illegal is hazy and varies somewhat between countries. In about one – half of the USA, uncle – niece and aunt – nephew (second degree) and first cousin (third degree) matings are forbidden by law. In most African societies consanguineous marriages are not allowed. In contrast in countries like Japan, India, Pakistan and the Middle East, upto 30% of marriages are consanguineous and are even encouraged as in Japan.

    Regarding the way in which marriage is conducted in Jaffna Tamils many of these customs like pon urukku, panthakkal, mappillai azhaippu, etc etc are performed in Tamil nadu tamils marriages also. All these are exactly performed in the vellala marriages of Tirunelveli and Kanniyakumari districts. A subset of these and other customs are followed in the marriages of other districts irrespective of the community (caste).

    I have heard a lot of negative things about Eazham tamils. You go through some of the web sites (most probably maintained by Sinhalese hardliners) to find out the negative characters of Eazham Tamils (Especially Jaffna Tamils of Nallur Rajadhany). Even many up country tamils have told me that Sinhalese are better than Jaffna Tamils. I don’t want to elaborate on those things. All these negative characters can be encapsulated in one cover namely Vellala supremacy. Whether you are really a vellala or pretend to be a vellala, we other tamils pass on this message emphatically. ‘We can no longer accept the Vellala Supremacy in Sri Lanka and Vellala/Brahmin Supremacy in Tamil Nadu’. Don’t have faith in superiority by birth (caste). Your status should be decided by your deeds. Only because of these two groups (vellalas and brahmins) mass conversions took place among the tamils of TN and SL. Most of the Christian tamils are Dalits and Backward Caste people.

    Undoubtedly upcountry tamils are our brothers and you (Eazham tamils) are our cousins only. Even Sinhalese are our distant cousins. I think we are close to sinhalese as we are close to kannadigas and telugus. I list down the order. Upcountry tamils and malaysian tamils – our brothers, Eazham Tamils – our first cousins, Malayalees – our second cousins, Kannadigas, Telugus and Sinhalese – our third cousins. Marattis and Oriyans – our fourth cousins and it is very difficult to trace the relationship with other ethnic groups of the subcontinent.

    Navadakkam katrukkol Sivanantha.

  139. Jayawewa!jayawewa!

    Actually our thanks should not be for Manmohansingh but for the Rajiv Gandhi family to whom the Indian prime minister is a puppet and servant

    I heard from freinds in Delhi that it was Queen Sonia and princess Priyanka who commanded their slave Manmohan Singh to dismiss Vaiko demand this way

    As I have been telling many times on this DBSJ site I am ever ready to visit India and show Sri Lankas gratefulness to the Queen and princess

    Though I am a proud Sinhalaya I am willing for the sake of my country and people to prostrate myself in front of Queen Sonia and Princess Priyanka to say Thank you in a very humble way

    I am also ready to clean their sandals and chappals by licking them through and through with my tongue

    I will lied down in front of them like a human carpet or footstool. They can rest their dainty feet on me or rub the dust on me by trampling me

    If they will give me the opportunity I can lick the soles of their pretty feet or suck their dainty toes as token of my appreciation

    I am their slave for Queen Sonia and Princess Priyanka to command. All this for my country because I am a proud Sinhala patriot

  140. Soma,

    Please do not drag the upcountry Tamils into this.. A vast majority of them are non-tribal and have no truck with the Vaddukodai business..

  141. M.Sivanandan,

    I think something seriously wrong with you: iether you are suffering from a mental disorder or you have an interlectual capacity of a 10-year-old child. Read the comments of Mr.Yogesh and have an appointment with the nearest psychiatric facility. You need help.

    Bernard

  142. “I don’t want to waste my time in answering infants” sorry uncle i too never expected you to give any fact based answer.
    since uncle yogesh have unilaterally declared ceasfire a common tactic by LTTE when they run out of
    bullets ,for the benefit of others i will show what made him run away.
    uncle yogesh said “GoI nurtured other armed groups and not LTTE” see link http://dbsjeyaraj.com/dbsj/archives/2618#comment-40829

    then i proved it wrong http://dbsjeyaraj.com/dbsj/archives/2623#comment-41094
    so without accepting his knowledge on lankan issues is lower than an infant,or coming up with
    any counter argument he gives one of his signature comment.feels sorry for u uncle.

  143. THIS IS A TRUE HORROR STORY(caution people with weak nerves should not read)
    scene 1 as expected mr. bernard came with undeniable proof and irrefutable evidence supporting
    his view ‘tamils are posing as sinhalese’ and came with 100’s of examples showing how racist ‘sinhala
    culture has overpowered tamil culture’.a similar feat was performed on racist infant by mr.yogesh

    scene 2 since all arguments made by siva diyasena and infant were proved false and they were ‘proved’
    as fools,the 3 visited a ‘psychiatric facility’ as instructed by bernard.upon arival they were
    shocked to read a notice put up by the police and hospital.what did the notice said ?
    “please help to find the following patients ”
    names -“bernard antony and Yogesh Karayalar”
    disease-absolute nut cases.contacted the disease while working in WTM
    how to identify them -may come up with arguments but would run away when they are proved wrong
    believes on hallucinations like “‘tamils are posing as sinhalese’
    or would insist that others are mad and not them.

  144. I must be very greatful to Indias dynamic lady speaker the honourable Madam Meera Kumar.

    She invited our Sri Lankan MP delegation to Lok Sabha and scolded the AIADMK mp’s who protested like pickpockets and put them in their place

    For this very brave and noble deed I worship madam Meera Kumar. I see her not as ordinary human being but as a divine goddess

    I am a proud Sinhalaya but for the sake of my country and nation I am ready to fall at madam Meera Kumars feet and let her put her lotus feet on my head

    I will take the dust of the ground she walks on and put on my head like the Hindu people put holy ash

    I am ready to lick the soles of her pretty feet and suck her dainty toes with rose red nail polish

    If she does not like me to put my tongue on her feet I will lick her slippers and express my thanks

  145. Dont worry about my health but you are running away from the “points”. If you have “brain”, counter the points I raised. Your pro-LTTE propaganda is useless for any sensible person from Sri Lanka.

  146. Singh is just prattling off what the mallu cabal that control india’s foreign policy have told him to.

    Where india’s interest is concerned singh is quite right.India can not afford to make 16 million sinhalese sniffing their arse enemies. The sinhalese already for centuries suffer from india and tamilnadu in particular phobia and if india imposes sanctions then the sinhalese will say “i told you so,we can never trust india”.

    Where china is concerned india cannot afford to antagonise it.To deal with china the EU and its ally the US combination will be necessary. When they tell china to butt off srilanka and china goes quiet mahinda will be stunned. Same for russia too. Simple reason being the chinese and the russians need the EU and US more than the EU and US needs them.These geopolitical realities must be taken in by tiny srilanka without putting all its eggs in one basket but try to spread it out as much as possible.It is foolish for mahinda to take on the west thinking that he has china and russia in his pocket.The same mistake that VP made when he took on india thinking that he has the west in his pocket.He saw stars when the west dumped him,not because they were worried about india,but the attitude towards terrorism changed considerably after the sept 2001 attack on the twin towers.Being dumped is part of human nature and the countries are no better.They vanish when their interests are at stake.

    At the moment it is not in india’s interest to take punitive measures such as sanctions,full stop. I told that sometime ago when a raging debate was going on on this blog whether indian sanctions will have any effect on srilanka. I told at that time it is a waste of time to argue like this because there will be no sanctions.The sanctions that will come will be from the west if srilanka continues to go on this confrontational path with them.The decision can be made even in september when the UN Human Rights Commission meets for 2 weeks.We will have to forget about exporting our garments to the US and EU.Of course it won’t happen all at once but gradually the screws will get tightened little by little and the message will be sent to srilanka,just like the recent message they got just before mahinda went to china with planes intruding into our air space from US aircraft carrier.The message was to china really that we would love to smash you up with our superior military technology and put you into your rightfull place once and for all.When china told obama not to let the dalai lama visit him he merely farted into their face. If the chinese think they can scare a african american like the whites they live in cuckooland.

  147. A nut case always think that others are so. I know one doctor who specializes in child psychiatry. Give your parent’s address. I’ll forward the address to them. Drink milk and take rest. Sweet dreamsda kanna.

  148. LKsword (Aug 08) The genuflecting before the Indian Royalty you offer is nothing new. Those Sinhala Kandyan Nobles did that in the 18th-19th century. Not sure if they did any licking of feet or chappals in public at the Royal Court.
    And when the time was right they were prepared to join the British to cut the necks of the (Indian) Kandyan King too.

    ISS

  149. sARATH, BULLSHIT !

    lONG, VERY LONG BEFORE THE VIOLENCE AND THE WAR, THE DEATH AND DESTRUCTION WAS THE MULTIPLE STATE SPONSORED RACIST CRUSHING OF THE TAMILS, THE RAPINGS , THE TORCHING, THE KILLING, THE INCINERATING INSIDE VEHICLES, THE TYING TO LAMP POLES AND EVEN THE PETTAH BO-TREE PERIMETER FENCE, THE BURNING ALIVE OF INNOCENT TAMILS DRAGGED OUT OF THEIR HOMES AND DUMPED ON PILED-UP FURNITURE, NATTRESSES WHICH WERE SOAKED IN PETROL AND THEN BURNT ALIVE.WHERE WERE THE CONDEMNATIONS? SHOW ME ONE IN ANY NEWSPAPER REPORT. WHAT DID THE BUDDHIST CLERGY SAY? WHAT DID BUDDHIST POLITICAL AND SOCIAL LEADERS SAY? NOT ONE BLOODY WORD.

    THE ONLY ROLE THEY PLAYED IN GENERATING THE VIOLENCE WAS THE GENTILITY AND HUMILOITY BORN FO THEIR CULTURAL VALUES AND THE BREEDING IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL HOMES.THEIR GENTILITY WAS ABUSED, TAKEN FOR WEAKNESS, AND YES, IT WAS A WEAKNESS FOR WHICH THEY PAID DEARLY BY BEING SADISTICALLY CRUSHED BY SINHALA MOBS. REMEMBER HOW POLICEMEN BACK IN THE 1950’S THROUGH THE 60’S ORDERED GRAM SELLERS TO PACK BAGS OF GRAM FOR THEM – GRATIS – AS A BRIBE TO BE ENTITLED TO PUSH SALES ON STREET CURBS THE NEXT DAY? AND WALKED AWAY WITH PART OF THEIR DAY’S EARNINGS, LEAVING THEM SOBBING ON CITY SIDEWALKS?REMEMBER HOW THE TAMIL CONSERVANCY LABOURERS OF THE CMC WERE SEXUALLY MOLESTED AT WILL , AS HELPLESS AS STREET MONGRELS?WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU THEN?

    CAN I ASK YOU THIS ” WHY DO THE SINHALESE KEEP ON TWISTING THE TRUTH AND REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR CRIMES? THE CRIMES WHICH TRIGGERED IT ALL, TRANSFORMING LAMBS INTO TIGERS WHEN IT WAS NO MORE ENDURABLE?

    WHO BRAINWASHED YOU ? OR IT IT THAT YOU’RE OF THE YOUNGER GENRATION THAT STUPIDLY GOES BY WHAT YOUR LEADERS SAY ?

    LET ME TELL YOU THAT NOT A THING HAS CHANGED TO THIS DAY.BECAUSE THERE ARE NO MORE TAMIL GRAM SELLERS, NOT MORE THAN 1/1000TH OF THE NUMBER IN THAT TRADE TODAY. AND NO MORE TAMIL CONSERVANCY LABOURERS BECAUSE THE EXCRETA BUCKET SYSTEM WENT OUT LONG AGO. TAMIL POLITICAL LEADERS WHO DEMANDED FINANCES IN PARLIAMENT FOR NORTHERN PROVINCE DEVELOPMENT WERE ATTACKED WITH SLIPPERS, BUDGET PROPOSAL BOOKS AND WHATEVER MISSILE THAT SINHJALA MP’S IN THE HOUSE COULD,LAY THEIR HANDS ON …NOT COMMON SINHALA MOBS ! SINHALA MP’S !

    AS AMIRTHALINGAM WARNED, THE ‘WORM WOULD TURN ONE DAY”. ASKED WHY THE ltte KILLED THEM, AN ltteER TOLD ME ” i DON’T KNOW, WE’RE NOT AT TOP LEVEL. BUT WE HEAR IT WAS BECAUSE THEY KEPT WASTING TIME TALKING, NEGOTIATING, WHEN THEY KNEW NOTHING WOULD EVER COME OUT OF THE EXERCISE”

    MAYBE, MAYBE NOT.

    BUT TO THE POINT HERE, ” WHY DO TAMILS KEEP ON BLAMING…..” ARE YOU SERIOUSLY SUGGESTING THAT THEY ARE TO BE BLAMED? . THEY ” PLAYED A HUGE ROLE” IN CREATING WAR? YOU MEAN, THEIR RESPONSE TO MARAUDING, RAPACIOUS KILLER OPPRESSION? YOU CALL THAT A ‘HUGE ROLE IN CREATING WAR: ? THAT’S SICK.YOU’RE SCREWING UP THE BUDDHIST THEORY OF CAUSE AND EFFECT. SIMPLY BECAUSE THE MAJORITY WINS INA VOTE OR IN A WAR IT DOES NOT MEAN THEY’RE RIGHT..MERELY A STRONGER FORCE CRUSHING A WEAKER FORCE. YOUR HEROES ARE NO HEROES. THE REAL HEROES WERE THOSE WHO DARES , BEING WEAKER, BEING NUMERICALLY SMALLER. YOUR RACE STILL REVELS IN THE VICTORY OF THE OPPRESSOR.

    THE OPPRESSED REMAIN OPPRESSED. THEIR LANDS ARE ROBBED FROM THEM BY FORCE.THEIR BUSINESSES ARE MONOPOLIZED BY THE SOUTHERN SINHALESE.

    WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TRYING TO BULLSHIT? NOT ALL WERE BORN YESTERDAY EVEN IF YOU WERE.

    WHY ARE THE TAMIL LEADERS OF INTEGRITY AVERSE TO TRUST YOUR PEOPLE IN THE LEAST BIT ? BECAUSE OF DECADES OF EXPERIENCE IN BEING LED ALONG SOME JUNGLE PATH ONLY TO BE LEFT IN SOME WILDERNESS OF DESPAIR. IT WAS THAT DESPAIR THAT BIRTHED THE TIGERS WHO ULTIMATELY REACTED WITH VIOLENCE AFTER DISCOVERING THAT THEY WERE TRAPPED BY THEIR OWN SHORTSIGHTEDNESS.

    BUT HISTORY WILL RECORD THAT THE PRICE PAID IN BLOOD WAS FAR IN EXCESS OF THE PENALTY FOR THAT MISTAKE. DON’T FORGET THAT THEY BEGAN AS MERE TEENAGERS, SOME OF THEM WITH HARDLY A GROWTH OF BEARD/MOUSTACHE IN THE FLEDGELING LTTE.

    THEY WERE ALL VICTIMS OF THE NEVER ENDING POLITICAL HYPOCRISY UNDER WHICH THEY FOUND NO HOPE OF EQUALITY OR FREEDOM.

    jOHN ADAMS PUT IT SUCCINCTLY IN ONE OF HIS QUOTES ON SUCH HYPOCRISY WHEN HE SAID :
    Be not intimidated… nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.

    THINK ON THOSE THOUGHTS. IT WILL DO YOU GOOD AND HOPEFULLY MAKE YOU MORE OBJECTIVE.

  150. sarath

    you mean spying offices. You can’t throw away spies.they come in the garb of foreign office people. They are the eyes and ears of what is happenning in hambantota.

  151. Leela,

    Funny that the scapegoat for everything has to be a Tamil, isn’t it? So now it’s the ‘political Tamils’ who are the real enemy of the Tamils? And it’s the “political Tamils with an inbuilt PRE-Vadukkodai mentality”. Got it all neatly wrapped up haven’t you ?

    MY, MY, and pray tell us thou exalted pundit whether it’s the PRE-Vaddukkodai mentality Tamils[ VMT’s] who’ve permanently stationed the military oppressor across the northern and eastern landscape and ensures that even a school function is presided over by an army official? Why even the opening of a co-operative outlet has to be ‘graced’ by a military official, who of course had two hundred armed soldiers traipsing in along with him for his security?

    Is it the VMT’s who deprive the Tamil race of its right to every human dignity and has instead condemned it to a life of serfdom?

    Have you by any chance seen that film on DVD titled ” I AM SLAVE” ? SEE IT, STUDY IT, ABSORB IT. tHERE IS MUCH IN IT THAT DRAWS PARALLELS WITH THE IGNOMINY TO WHICH THE TAMIL
    RACE HAS BEEN CONDEMNED IN SRI LANKA.

    yOUR REASONING, FORGIVE ME FOR HAVING TO SAY THIS,IS AS COCKEYED AS THE GOVERNMENT’SD OPINION THAT uNIVERSITY STUDENTS HAVE NO RIGHT O AGITATE ON NATIONAL ISSUES, MERELY BY MAKING THE ALLEGATIONS THAT THEY ARE DABBLING IN POLITICAL ISSUES. bUT IT’S QUITE OKAY WHEN THE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS WHO SUPPORT THE GOVERNMENT JOIN ITS GOON SQUADS TO BROWBEAT VOTERS DUR8ING ELECTION CAMPAIGNS AND IN THE IMMEDIATE POST-ELECTION PERIODS, IS IT ? tHAT IS NOT DABBLING IN POLITICS, aND WHEN THOSE VERY STUDENTS STONE, CLUB AND ASSAULT THEIR COLLEAGUES FOR DEMONSTRATING AGaINST THE GOVERNMENT , then, that is not dabbling in politics is it ? PERHAPS NO ONE HAS TOLD YOU LOT THAT HUMAN RIGHTS DON’T DEVOLVE ON SPECIFIC AGE GROUPS. BUT I GRANT YOU YOUR POINT TO ONE EXTENT: IT’S THE TAMIL POLITICIANS WHO HAVE SOLD THEIR BIRTHRIGHTS FOR A PARCEL OF LAND AND SOME FRINGE BENEFITS IN cOLOMBO WHO ARE , ALONG WITH THE MAJORITY SINHALA BUDDHISTS, THE ENEMIES OF THE TAMIL RACE. ONE LAST THING, IT’S THE POPULIST SINHALA BUDDHIST SUPREMACY COMPLEX THAT FANS INTO FLAME NOW AND THEN THE EMBERS OF VADDUKKODAI.

    SO NOW, THE TAMILS HAVE AN INBUILT PRE- VADDUKKODAI MENTALITY AND , EUREKA! THAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE TAMILS, IS IT? I DON’T HAVE TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR COCKEYED THEORY, DO I ?

    GOING BY THE GOEBBELSIAN THEORY I’D HAZARD A GUESS THAT THE MAJORITARIAN SINHALA BUDDHIST ALLEGATION [ WHICH IS THE ONE YOU MAKE, LIKE THAT MUPPET-PUPPET G.L. PEIRIS], IF IT WERE TO BE PSYCHO-ANALYSED TODAY BY THE UNFORTUNATELY NOW DEPARTED SIGMUND FREUD, IS DEEPLY ROOTED IN SOME MASS SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION OR ABBERRATION IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO MAKE THAT ALLEGATION. yOU CREATED THE tIGEWRS, THEN KILLED THEM AND ARE TRYING YOUR LEVEL BEST TO LAUNCH A FULL SCALE RACIAL COPULATION SPLURGE TO BIRTH ANOTHER GENERATION OF TIGERS, ARE YOU ?

    IT’S A TRUISM THAT WE REAP WHAT WE SOW. YOU CAN CHOOSE TO SHOOT YOUR MOUTH OFF AT A TANGENT, LABOURING UNDER SOME DELUSION OF BEING OMNISCIENT, OR YOU CAN OPT TO THINK TWICE, NAY ! THRICE, BEFORE YOU PRESUME ERRONEOUSLY THAT YOU CAN GET OFF SCOT FREE AFTER MAKING A FAIR IMITATION OF A COW WITH A SERIOUS ATTACK OF INDIGESTION.

    hOW NICE OF YOU TO SUGGEST MASS INTEGRATION , LIKE THE MUSLIMS, WITH THE SINHALESE, SO THAT THE SKY WILL BE THE LIMIT FOR THE TAMILS ! HOW VERY GENEROUS OF YOU. TELL US, WHAT IS THE LIMIT OF THIS GRAND THEORY OF INTEGRATION?

    RAUFF HAKEEM AND HIS BAND OF MERRY MEN ‘INTEGRATED’ ONLY AFTER THEY WERE QUITE SURE THE MILITANT LTTE WAS SAFELY OUT OF THE WAY , AT LEAST FOR A PERIOD WELL INTO A MEDIUM TERM. AND THAT TOO , HIS INTEGRATION HAD A HUGE PRICE TAG – THE JUSTICE PORTFOLIO AND GOD ALONE KNOWS WHAT OTHER PERKS. THIS IS THE MAN WHO LESS THAN AN YEAR BEFORE, AFTER HAVING QUIT THE GOVERNMENT EARLIER IN DISGUST, GESTURED MAGNIFICENTLY, LIKE A MOVIE STAR IN FACT, THAT HE’D NEVER BOW DOWN TO THIS” SLAVISH SERVILITY” [ AT THE LALITH ATHULATHMIUDALI COMMEMORATION MEETING].AND OF COURSE IT WENT A LONG WAY IN ENSURING THE 2/3 MAJORITY VOTE FOR THE 18TH AMENDMENT. ARE YOU SUGGESTING THAT SORT OF INTEGRATION? WHATEVER GAVE YOU THE IDEA THAT THE TAMILS RACE COMPRISES A BUNCH OF UNPRINCIPLED SELL-OUT ARTISTS?

    IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY, YOU’D SEE THE TAMIL RACE, MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD, GOING THROUGH A MASS, THOUGH SUBTLE, METAMORPHOSIS, EVOLVING INTO A REALIZATION OF THEIR SELF-WORTH, DIGNITY AND STATURE IN THE HUMAN FAMILY. GIBRAN SAID IN PROPHECY OVER A CENTURY AGO THAT ” THE CHILDREN OF TOMORROW SHALL WALK WITH HEADS HELD HIGH ‘. WHAT DO YOU PROPOSE THEY SACRIFICE THAT SENSE OF NATIONHOOD FOR? A MESS OF PORRIDGE ? AS THE MUSLIMS DO [ OR SO YOU CLAIM, BUT BABE ! I WOULD NOT BE TOO SURE OF THAT. HOD YOUR HORSES ON THAT ONE, THEY’RE AS SLIPPERY AS ANYONE CAN GET, BELIEVE ME.] SO, THEY SKY IS THE LIMIT EH? YOU’RE FORGETTING ONE LITTLE THING. WE DID GET THE SKY, SEVERAL TIMES OVER, WITH SOME WELL PLACED KICKS UP OUR BACKSIDES IN RESPONSE TO THE TRUST AND FAITH PLACED IN OFFERS OF NEGOTIATED SOLUTIONS.

    GROW UP WILL YOU. THIS BLOG, I BELIEVE, IS FOR ADULTS. BUT LET ME NOT SPOIL YOUR DAY, EVERYTHING’S NOT LOST. AT LEAST PAPA GL WILL APPLAUD YOUR SOMEWHAT PUERILE TRY !

  152. GBSGanesan….
    Forgiving is just great Ganesan, just bgreat. but in all things, being circumspect is the watch word. The Biblical warning to ” Do not cast your pearls before swine, for they will trample them underfoot and turn and rend you”.

    If you’ve seen desert gogs you’d know how vicious their twin tusks can be. They can tear up a man’s legs, bring him to the ground in seconds and then proceed to disembowel him and eat uphis bowels, in fact, everything thing inside him.

    Do you know that the Tamils are denigratingly referred to as chauvinists and land thieves ? Because they dare to voice even a token protest against their land, on which their generations have settled before them, being forcibly taken over and given out for Sinhala colonisation.What they’ve done and keep doing to their own Veddah clan, herding them from place to place to make room for ‘ development’ is what they’re doing to the Tamils by chasing them out from their traditional homesteads.

    As you know, the lists alone, of all the repressions and the many other forms of oppression wouild need several pages to be put down in black and whote.

    So, to your ” We may forgive…” I hope the “MAY” remains in its negative tense. You ask why? THEY DON’T FORGIVE. WHEN THEY APPEAR TO DO SO ITS ONLY AFTER THEY’VE CRUSHED THE LIFE OUT OF YOU AND ESTABLISHED THEIR SUPREMACY IN MIGHT, IN MAJORITARIANISM. tHEN THEIR SO-CALLED ‘ FORGIVENESS IS NOTHING BUT A MANIFESTATION OF THE BIGOTED SENSE OF SUPREMACIST CONDESCENTION.

    IT IS THIS VERY ‘ NICENESS’ THIS HUMANENESS IN THE tAMIL RACE THAT HAS LED TO IT BEING KICKED ABOUT FOR CENTURIES.

    i LIKE THE APPROACH ADOPTED BY SEVERAL BRITISHERS WHO BELIEVE THAT “ONE MUST BE GOOD, BUT NO GOOD FOR NOTHING”

    BY ALL MEANS BE GOOD, BUT DON’T CAST THAT GOODNESS BEFORE SWINE. THEY WILL MERELY TAKE IT FOR WEAKNESS AND FEAR.

    ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS AN EXTREMELY GOOD MAN.BUT YOU SEE,, HE WAS HELL BENT ON SETTING THE PEOPLE FREE. BUT TELL ME, WHAT ARE THE CRIMES FOR WHICH THE sINHALESE NEED TO BE FORGIVEN? kNOW WHAT THYE WILL TELL YOU ? THIS : WHO THE F….S ASKED YOUR FORGIVENESS? WHAT CRIME DID WE COMMIT? THEY MIGHT THINK YOU’RE REFERRING TO THE CHANNEL 4 AFFAIR AND THAT’S NOT GONNA MAKE YOU POPULAR WIT THEM ? LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. THEY COMMITTED NO CRIMES. THE TAMILS COMMITTED ALL THE CRIMES AND HAVE NO EXCUSE FOR COMMITTING THEM EITHER. IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME, ASK THE NEXT SINHLA GUY YOU MEET ANYWHERE. SAFER STILL, ASK ONE OF THEM BY PHONE. THAT’S HOW SAFE SRI LANKA IS. KNOW WHY THIS GOD FORSAKEN ISLE IS CALLED A FIVE STAR DEMOCRACY ? BECAUSE IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER YOU LOOK NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST OR UP [ THAT’S FIVE DIRECTIONS] ALL YOU WILL SEE ARE STARS !

    MAKE NO BONES ABOUT THIS FACT MY FRIEND. BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY, AFTER ALL IS SAID AND DONE, THE BRUTAL FACT IS THAT IT IS THE VERY REAL FEAR OF SUDDEN DEATH AT THE HANDS OF SOME KILLER GUN THAT ENSURES THAT ALL TAMIL LANDS ARE BEIGN PROGRESSIVELY TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM. THE GUN! THAT’S WHAT’S SUBTLY AROUND THE CORNER. THAT’S WHAT DETERMINES THE PERSISTING TENURE OF THE FEAR PSYCHOSIS. HEARD WHAT GOTABHAYA SAID ABOUT THE STIRS IN kATTANKUDY ? THE sUNDAY ISLAND QUOTED HIM AS HAVING SAID THAT ANYONE CAN TAKE ON THE POLICE ONLY AT THE RISK OF ‘CONSEQUENCES’.

  153. KUMUTHINI, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING AH ? GO TO JAFFNA, PLENTY OF ” ACTION IN THE GROUND, REAL ACTION.” SOON THE GROUND WILL BE ALL THEIRS, EVERY INCH OF IT, IF YOU GUYS OVER THERE DON’T DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. BUT IT’S TO,LATE I’M AFRAID FOR ANYTHING. WAKE UP BABY, AS LEELA PUTS IT, RATHER PITHILY I THOUGHT, “THE CARAVAN IS MOVING UNSTOPPABLY”. MARK HER WORDS: UNSTOPPABLY ! OF COURSE, QUAINT THAT SHE HAS COINED A NEW WORD TO DEFINE ALL ARMS OF THE MILITARY MACHINERY : ARMY,AIR FORCE,NAVY AND EVEN THE POLICE…NICE WORD: CARAVAN”. THE SAME KIND OF CARAVAN THAT, ON ITS INEXORABLE WAY, RAN SEVERAL TIMES OVER pRABHA’S MOTHER’S ASHES AFTER THROWING DEAD DOGS ON THE PYRE AND BURNING IT ALL TOGETHER. FORGET THE HOMELAND BERNARD, THE SINHALA JUGGERNAUT WILL ONLY ROAR INTO MORE LIFE AND CRUSH EVERTHING THAT STANDS IN ITS WAY.YOU’RE A FOOL IF YOU THINK YOU’VE NOT SEEN THE LAST OF THE HOMELAND ! IN 20 YEARS, THE TAMILS WON’T EVEN BE A MINORITY, JUST A NONENTITY. REALITY..AND THE DREAM…THEY’RE ALL CONSUMED IN THE FORGOTTEN MISTS OFM TIME. ONLY MEMORIES, AND TEARS, WILL REMAIN MY FRIEND, AS THEY RUN ROUGHSHOD OVER OUR DESCENDANTS WHO ARE THRICE CURSED FOR BEING BORN IN THIS WRETCHED CACOTOPIAN HELL.THE LUCKY ONES ARE THOSE IN THE DIASPORA. AT LEAST THEIR CHILDREN AND THEIR CHILDREN DOWN THE GENERATIONS WILL NOT KNOW WHAT SHAME IS, WILL NOT DRINK THAT BITTER CUP OF SHEER IGNOMINY. THEY WILL HAVE NO NEED FOR POWER EITHER BECAUSE THEY WILL BE TREATED FAIRLY BY THEIR ADOPTED NEW HOMELANDS AND GOVERNMENT. AND BELIEVE ME, THEY CAN SLEEP IN PEACE, GET THE BEST EDUCATION, HEALTH CARE, LUXURIES ETC FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND AT LEAST REMEMBER THE HOMELAND AS IT WAS AT THE TIME THEY LEFT THESE SHORES.THEY WON’T HAVE TO SING ” DON’T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA”

    BUT THEY WILL REMEMBER AND SING ” THE TRUTH IS I NEVER LEFT YOU – FOR WHAT YOU NOW ARE IS NOT WHAT I LEFT, SHE’S GONE, MY BELOVED LAND WHERE THE RISING SUN ONCE AWAKENED ME EACH DAY TO LIFE RENEWED. WHERE TODAY RULES THE OPPRESSOR.

    FORGET IT ALL BERNARD…OR TRY TO.

    FOR THEIR GENERATIONS THERE WILL BE NO REMEMBERING. FOR YOURS AND MINE THERE WILL BE BECAUSE THE CHILDREN WILL BE TOLD THAT THE GROUND THEY WALK ON WAS ONCE THEIRS…AND NEVER AGAIN WILL BE.

    MAY I LEAVE YOU WITH SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT THOUGH, DRAWN FROM A DIALOGUE BETWEEN WHAT YOU MIGHT SAY HAS RELEVANCE TO TEH DEATJ STRUGGLES THENTAMIL NATIONIS DENYING , BUT IS THE REALITY RIGHT NOW?

    YOU MUST OF COURSE READ BETWEEN THE LINES BECAUSE THEY HAVE SOME DEFTLY HIDDEN METAPHYSICAL MEANINGS IN THEM:

    Princess Isabelle: The king desires peace.
    William Wallace: Longshanks desires peace?
    Princess Isabelle: He declares it to me, I swear it. He proposes that you withdraw your attack. In return he grants you title, estates, and this chest of gold which I am to pay to you personally.
    William Wallace: A lordship and titles. Gold. That I should become Judas?
    Princess Isabelle: Peace is made in such ways.
    [RINGS A BELL BROTHER BERNARD?]
    William Wallace: Slaves are made in such ways. The last time Longshanks spoke of peace I was a boy. And many Scottish NOBLES, who would not be slaves, were lured by him under a flag of truce to a barn, where he had them hanged. I was very young, but I remember Longshanks’ notion of peace.

    BE DOUBLY CAREFUL OF LONGSHANK MY DEAR FRIEND, HE[THEY] ONLY BELIEVE IN TAKING SLAVES. MAKE NO BLOODY MISTAKE ABOUT THAT.ALL THIS TALK ABOUT EQUALITY AND FREEDOM IS ALL BULLSHIT.LEELA OF THE LONGSHANKS HAS SAID A MOUTHFUL JUST ABOVE.

  154. INFANT, A FRIEND IN SRI LANKA TELLS ME YOU WERE RECENTLY DISCHARGED, ON PROBATION, FROM WARD 59 OF YOUR NATIONAL HOSPITAL IN COLOMBO.

    WHO IS THE NUT THERE WHO DISCHARGED YOU ?

    THEY SHOULD HAVE PLACED YOU UNDER A CARING BRAIN SPECIALIST. I’M AFRAID A PSYCHIATRIST CAN’T HELP YOU DEAR. YOU’VE SUFFERED SOME SERIOUS BRAIN INJURY. YOU’RE NOT A NUT CASE. DON’T WORRY YOURSELF ABOUT THAT. IT’S PROBABLY JUST SOME MINOR BRAIN MALFUNCTION. A MINOR ATROPHY, MAYBE.NOT A REAL NUT CASE. YOU KNOW? NOT REALLY ! CAN NEVER TELL THOUGH. A BAD CASE OF SOME SCREWS GETTING LOOSE SOMEHOW. NOTHING MORE THAN THAT. WE HAVE SOME GOOD PSYCHIATRISTS AND NEUROSURGEONS OVER HERE IN FRANCE. CAN I HELP YOU ? ONLY PROMISE ME YOU WON’T DRIVE THEM NUTS TOO,OKAY? THAT’S A GOOD GIRL NOW. IF NOT, DO US A FAVOR ? LIKE A GOOD GIRL ? TAKE SOME POISON?. PLEASE? PLEASE?SHALL I SEND YOU A CYANIDE CAPSULE?

    MUCH LOVE. ARE YOU SEXY ? GORGEOUS I BET. I’M SURE YOU’RE QUITE A STUNNER JUDGING BY THE STUFF YOU WRITE!.HA, HA, JUST JOKING DEAR.

  155. It should be noted, the first(may be second) nominated person to the State Council, by the British to represent the entire Tamils was Simon Casie Chetty from that Region. He was a well known Tamil as well as English Scholar.

    In a recent visit to Sri Lanka, I was surprised to see many tamil girls getting married to Sinhala boys(did not hear any other way). I counted more than 20 amongst my friends’ and relatives’ families. What is so surprising is that, they did not meet them in Colombo or surburns, but in Universities and Colleges in other parts of the world. If this trend continues, it won’t be long before we see this Negombo trend extends Northwards and Eastwards(already prevalent in upcountry). Some are getting engaged to Indian boys via Facebook and Twitters. Fortunately or not, less work for Vaiko and his political office Thayagam in the future.

  156. India will not make the same mistake with srilanka that it made with myanmar.In 1990-92 india joined with the west in supporting sanctions against myanmar. What happenened?Myanmar went totally into the chinese camp leaving india to scratch its head wondering what happenned.When you have a country as your neighbour you can’t just join people who are far away and try to bash it.It is geographically right next to you and you have to tailor your foreighn policies accordingly and can’t just join a clique that is far away from this country.

    I believe india’s current foreign policy towards srilanka is based on its bitter experience with myanmar where it lost a lot of clout with that country and china gained a strategic interest right next to india.Whenever a vacuum is there in asia china will agressively fill it.So singh said the truth to vaiko when he said sanctions are useless and china will just fill in the vacuum created by india. Except maybe for dhal and bombay onions there isn’t any great products that india has that pakistan or china cannot supply. The exports to india from srilanka is also a small amount only.waste of time in jaya and vaiko going on this sanctions path with india.

  157. Can you tell which Sri lankan King pay tribute to any Indian king, if you know any history?

    Kandiyan nobles never did anything as you claim!

  158. India burnt her finger with the LTTE. That is why India never support any suggetion from TN politicians.

    No Burmese kill any Indian PM but Sri Lankan LTTE criminals did!

    Further Manmohan recognise the liberty of Sri lanka to have business with China or Pakistan!

  159. sivananthan

    keppettipola joined the british and showed how to reach kandy as well as gave them all the secrets. As a result british were able to conquer the kandyan kingdom at last.

  160. keppettipola only brought down the nayakkar prince and got him crowned as the king of the kandyan kingdom.If he wasn’t bumsucking indians why did he not get from somewhere else,example siam bhudhist.

  161. India’s democracy cannot compete with china’s system of government when trying to win friends and influence other countries. Recently china had gifted 20 motorcycles to basil to do as he pleases with them.They had also given a grant to mahinda,not the government in millions of rupees.Mahinda had got damn wild when the sunday leader had reported it and called Lal Wickremetunge the brother of lasantha and threatened him personally. Singh is fighting a losing battle against china. If he had done the same thing there would have been a query in the parliament, newspapers would have been full of it and millions of indians will be wailing that when they don’t have motorcycles their elected representatives are gifting to rich people in other countries etc.etc.

  162. No Burmese kill any Indian PM but Sri Lankan LTTE criminals did!
    —————————————————————-
    According to subramaniam swamy LTTe was contracted by the Maino family to kill rajiv.His exact words are

    [There is a string of circumstantial evidence pointing to the prima facie possibility that the Maino family may have contracted with the LTTE to kill Rajiv Gandhi.]

    Now who is this Maino family?

    sonia’s sister Alexandra Maino Vinci

    Sonia’s mother Paola Predebon Maino

    Swamy also says the following

    [Besides the Palestinian extremists, the Maino family have had extensive business dealings with Saddam Hussein [see Annexure-18], and surprisingly since 1984 with the LTTE [“the Tamil Tigers”]. Sonia’s mother Paola Predebon Maino, and businessman Ottavio Quattrocchi are the main contacts with the Tigers. The mother used the LTTE for money laundering and Quattrocchi for selling weapons to earn commissions. Sonia’s conduit to the LTTE has been and is through Arjun Singh who uses Bangalore as the nodal point for contact.]

    So sivananthan before you heap all your vitriole on the LTTe for the assasination,also blame rajiv for bringing the italian mafia into peaceful india.Since he could not pick a indian bride out of more than 500 million of them,he probably deserves what he got for running after the whiteskin.

  163. Royals of S/India and Sri lanka had marriage relations on the basis of ROYALS and not on the basis of Tamil/Sinhala.

    LTTE joined Sinhala UNP against India. How is that?

  164. sivananthan

    There were royals in india other than in tamilnadu. Why did sinhala royals always go to tamilnadu to get royals. Why not to kerala and other states in india? Why not orissa?Also why not royals in siam or burma or china?Today they are china’s poodle,why didn’t they go those days licking their backside instead of only going after tamilnadu royals.Do you think royals were only in tamilnadu at that time you half baked kothu.

    This reminds me of what happenned to a sinhala chief during portuguese times. He had done all their dirty work for them like douglas does for the rajapakshes, and he asked them whether he could have a portuguese bride. The portuguese told him that a white bride for him is being sent from portugal.The chief with his whole entourage in all their finery like when mahinda went to oxford union were waiting at the port(not hambantota,because there is a rock that god has landed there).The portuguese captain of the ship came carrying a white poodle and handed it to the chief. This actually happenned.

    So the moral of the story is that is what would have happenned if the sinhalese had gone anywhere else other than tamilnadu for your royals as you claim. Pity that the tamils were the only stupids that tolerated and indulged them and are now reaping the benefits.

  165. You better ask your JJ or VaiKo to raise the “connection” problem in the Indian parliament.

    Further you now claim the LTTE is a gang of contract killers and nothing to do with politics or Tamil! Now the TAMIL PROBLEM is reduced to “contract killings”. Not only me but many others too have the same opinion about this Tamil liberation or Tamil Rights!

    Killing Tamils is a CAPITAL for MAFIA activities to make money!
