India Gets Tough

By Munza Mushtaq

A steadfast India will press Colombo to immediately unveil a political settlement for the Tamil minority in the country. 

The message will be communicated to President Mahinda Rajapaksa by Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao, who arrived in Sri Lanka yesterday on a three day official visit. 

“In May it will be a year since the LTTE was routed out, but despite rhetorical assurances the Sri Lankan Government has so far failed to forward any solution to the problems of the ethnic Tamils. Rao will deliver a message from the Central Government urging Rajapaksa to act fast on his promises,” an official from New Delhi’s External Affairs Ministry told The Sunday Leader. According to the Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry, Rao will meet President Rajapaksa, Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama, senior government officials and leaders of opposition political parties during her stay in Colombo.

  1. the regime has been good in taking all and everyone for a ride here in sri lanka. likewise the regime will take the indian morons too on an unforgettable ride. we can count on that.

  2. Saro

    APRC and Tissa Witharane, remember? Eye-wash? India protected Sri Lanka in the UN HRC so that Rajapakse brothers can continue kiling Tamils and rape Tamil girls without any witness to hear the cries or cameras to record the extra judicial executions of anyone opposed the advances and sexual favours. Kalaignar Karunanithy was taken for a ride by K Narayanan and Krishna Menon.

      ‘RAPE TAMIL GIRLS’ – you must be kidding. Who would want to go near one of them even if she if the last chic on the planet – the smelliest things on earth & so hideous looking.

      • A. Jesuthasan

        A similar comment was heard before also ! Remember Susanthike Jayasinghe’s complaint against SB Dissa
        and Mangala’s similar comments in support of SB !

      • Dilshan

        white skin bergers are so beatiful and nice smell. That is why Singheelam uses Berger Boys and Girls and get rid of them when they are old like Fonseka.

        • Don

          FYI Demalapalakaya it was rape and other methods of harassment that gave birth to the LTTE.
          Laksha e taibar got their start in Afghanistan like that when the army protected their raping soldiers.

        • Ilangko

          Remember the LTTE killing of 13 soldiers in 1983 that sparked the anti-Tamil pogrom? That was a response to the frequent rape of Tamil girls by soldiers stationed in the Vanni. And, Mr. Demalapakaya, rape isn’t about romance and looks, it’s about power.

        • Scrivan

          Be careful of what you say since Mrs.MR is also a burgher!

      • Fairose

        Do not over-estimate yourself. Tamils girls are much more cleaner and beautiful than you because they wake up early morning-take bath- to do the poojas. By this religious obligation, they keep themselves clean. Its pity you are such a racist stupid.

      • KABAI

        Take all your girls to a mirror and then you will know how goastly looking your girls are.

      • Randeniya

        Yes, you arrogant MF. Only lady that does not smell to you may be your mum.

      • raj

        Oh yeah ? Have you smelled your mother ?

    • Dilshan

      Remember……Singheelam gave Berger girls to Indian Envoy Bandari to favour them.

    • Bonapart

      Saro, could you please give us more detail over your allegations ? Specially the complaint of rape ?

      • raj

        Was it Krishanthi the school girl gang raped and the mom and bro slaughtered when they went looking for her at the sentry point. It is just one of them. We in SL have very short memory. Rememeber the picture of the girl in Mannar with the bleeding vagina and the lil girl with the ripped open stomach. We suffer from mass demetia in SL.

    • Saro

      Krishanthi, remember her? No, of course not, dementia? Yes. She was raped by savages in the army and buried within the army compound. Her mother, brother and their neighbour,too, were murdered and buried in the same compund. It was Kumar Ponnampalam who exposed the calousness of the army. Corporal Rajapakse, after convicted, confessed it was the higgher officers who did the rape and buried ’400 civilians’ in Jaffna and where is he now?

      • Bonapart

        Do you know that Srilankan army has nearly 300000 soldiers. Tamil population is nearly 400000. So among such a vast amount of people you can recall only one case of rape!! Incredible.

        . Even those culprits were taken into custody, heard in the courts and all of them were penalized. There is nothing you can blame about. How the bloody hell you can generalize that one incident and insult such a disciplined army ?

        Do you know that LTTE courts had heard and penalizes hundreds of rape cases involving tamil civilians only during the same period ?
        We heard that two tamils were caught in UK for raping a white women. But we never generalize and say that tamils are rapists. We know that they are isolated incidents occuring due to imbalanced sick minds of people without having any relation to race. We condemn describing these as racialism.

        But you bloody propagandist is doing what we condemn as disgusting !

        You are trying to tarnish the good image of SL army. But World understands your tactics! They are outdated . So you better switch over to some other form of mud slinging !

        • Tarnish the good image of SL army…? U must bejoking. Ask MR, he will tell you howbadly the former general homself has behaved. Sad jokers!

        • Bonapart

          Former general did not do anything wrong, Isn’t it ? That’s why you voted for him in last presidential election . Now you do not tell me you knew that he killed innocent tamils and you still voted for him !

        • raj

          Well if you need a list it is openely available in my web sites. May be you can try HRW for starters. It is hard for you to accept when you have burried you head in the sand like an ostrich.

        • Have you not heard about the rape in Haiti by the SL soldiers.
          They had to be sent back. What a shame to our country.

  3. Guru Satyadasa

    Sarath Fonseka was right, when he, as the Army Commander, referred to Indian Politicians as “Jokers”. All politicians including those belonging to the opposition rush to New Delhi when Sri Lanka faces a critical issue.

    They dole out promises and in return, obtain India’s support to proceed with and implement undemocratic and inhuman measures on Sri Lankan polity. The last stages of the Eelam War and the post election arrest of Gen Fonseka.

    It is time India realised that they have been taken for drive; this is partly due to India’s ineffective foreign policy crafted by the ilk of Narayan, Menon, Krishna, Chittambaram and now, Rao.

    Thinking backwords, had India directly intervened in the Tamil issue and pursued action similar to that which was adopted in the creation of Bangladesh, India would have been regained its international stature and would have been recognised as a decisive nation providing positive leadership to the South Eastern part of the world.

    • Sisira

      Yet another Indian’s ploy to destroy our country.
      Get loss Raos. We need Lees and Najeep Mullas

  4. Dr C P Thiagarajah

    After G Parthasarathy all advisers to the Prime Ministers were morans who let down India badly. See India was a nation that created Bangaladesh to weaken Pakistan but now India has lost its military might because of its advisers. Now China is threatening India along with Pakistan. If the Tamils were given a separate homeland it would have supported India at this crucial juncture. Now China’s Pearl ring harbours is a real threat to Indian ocean regions. Like Sarath Fonseka I too say that Indian politicians are real jokers.

    • Sam Jay

      Hello Dr.

      You better read on international politics and law. Please do not Insult Indian civil service , one of the best in the world. They are not political appointees.
      It’s Sri Lankan politicians who are dragging the feet. Now , the country is ruled by nationaliists and scared to take neasures towards reconciliation.

      Thay are waiting for the election to finish to have the cronies, Goons and the ” foilks at the dinner table” in the parliament..

      • osee d

        sam,
        you don’t need to know politics? see yourself what happned to so many thousand innocent tamils.why India intevened B’desh?The Tamils were always thing so called Mother india ,including myself prior to the atrociity india committed aganist the tamils.india may the big regional power, but shame just for Sonia’s wish the crime against humanity india committed for the Tamils.All the Tamils are against the killing of R.Gandhi.But why India not investigating the politician also involved in the killing?what about the Singala navy beat a Big power Leader in colombo?Now the Tamils Want the chinese to come to teach the indian jokers a lesson?

    • Psycho

      Hey Thiiagarajah, do you think that we have listen to you because you have a Dr in front of your name.

      Dont try to show off you sucker.

    • raj

      We will see who will be made the jokers in the end.

  5. Edward

    Political settlement for the Tamils, my foot. India or any other country can wait or press but Rajapaksa knowes how to manage. There is a world of difference between what he say and his action. If India failed to understan this it is not our fault we can find so many friends.

    • Dilshan

      Even Ban Ki Moon lost His best friend Mr white skin Mahinda Rajapaksa.

  6. Dilshan

    Indian brought most of the ENDLF(Indian trained Movements) back to Tamileelam and they are roaming around in North and East of Eelam. They are very well routed in Singheelam as well specially in Kandy.

    Their main purpose to chase the China and Pakistan from Singheelam and East Tamileelam.

    Indian’s main problem was LTTE; Now Indian got the golden oppotunity to rule Eelam.

  7. Dilshan

    India is a coward and used Singheela Soldiers to fight the Rajiv-Killers(LTTE).

    Now using the ENDLF to fight Chinese and Pakistanis in Eelam specially in Singheelam.

  8. osee d

    Munza Mushtaq,
    I don’t know Whether u understand Srilanka?”India Gets Tough” with whom? were you in this world when B’desh war ? Did you know what happned by Singalase in Colombo? The pakis were here? Now the Chinese are here?what do you going to do about it , you are all jokers?india RAW(Narayan&co) also war criminal,ther are hiding behind the singalase’ under pans scared of prosecution(thats why they supported srilanka in Geneva). See yourself what happned to neighbours,Nepal,Tibet,Burma,b’desh and srilanka.You could not do anything when the scientiest are killed in India by Pakis? Tamil are behind China.

    • Dilshan

      Yes, Indigenous Tamil in Eelam wants to give a VERY GOOD lesson to white skin India. Support Pakistan and China and let them have a base in Tamileelam, (and in Singheelam of course), they will teach an unforgetable Memory to White Skin Indians.

    • You poor guy, I will write for you a comment. The war criminal Palitha Kohane wanted to give lectures how to cheat countries like India. Apes rule the Earth! Gothapaya, killer hundred thousand Tamil should be awarded Dr title by Sonja and Manmohan Singh. Mahinda is going to adopt M.K.Narayanan as his daughter. Rohi Bogo need a Job for his as toilet cleaner at UN. This poor fat fool is always going around and begging people for something. Bogologama is so used to begging and now he can’t see any difference in real live. I will help you to write more later. OK!

  10. kumara soysa

    WHY DO YOU ALLOW DIRTY LANGUAGE TO BE USED IN THESE COMMENTS? I JUST CANNOT UNDERSTAND THAT. ANY KIND OF GRAMMAR, SPELLING MISTAKES ETCF., ARE ALSO ALLOWED AS WELL AS THE FILTHIEST LANGUAGE WE HAVE EVER SEEN IN A NEWSPAPER! ALL OTHER PAPERS EDIT READER COMMENTS BUT YOU JUST LET IT PASS.

    TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS.

    As for the “Aspirations of the Tamils”, I and many others are still waiting to know what they lack that others have in this country.

    • Akilan

      Tamils live in death camps. Tamils live on the streets. Tamil girls are raped. Tamil men are abducted and killed. Sri Lankan regimes have bombed and destroyed everything that belonged to Tamils. Tamil roads and villages are turned into Sinhala roads and villages. Tamils have nothing to loose because they have lost everything. Kumara, you must be living on another planet or you are simply a hypocrat.

    • Hi Kumara soysa,

      I can understand your concern about the way people writing. Yes people have problems with the Grammar and decency. But you have problem with the understanding. I am not saying that you are an idiot but you are an utter IGNORANT. Tamils lack nothing in this country, which country? Now I am asking you a question like a fool! TAMILs in the country called Sri Lanka lacks everything. No equal rights, no freedom, no peace, not enough food and medicine. Tamils lack a roof above their head.Tamils live since many dacades IDPs in camps and temporary shelters. Go to the places where Tamils are kept like animals ans see the reality. No body can give you better explanation, you won’t understand it.

    • Scrivan

      You sure sound sincere but may well be an ignoramus believing in the news dished out out by governmnt press and supportive dailies. Not you fault. But you should go to the Wanni and the rest of the north and east and see for yourself. But don’t write about what you saw because you may have to flee the country like 67 other Reporters or be taken in white vans and ……. (under a Minister too) as another 34 who have paid with their lives. It will be a reality check.

    • ..why the hell then Banda-Selva pact…Dudly-Selva Pact…Pilot Rajiv-Jayawardena pact….???? why the hell still Sinhalease talk about Tamil problems??you have just out of Angoda…????

    • ..A FELLOW LIKE YOU JUST LANDEDE FROM MARS CANT UNDERSTAND THIS..IF THERE IS NO TAMIL PROBLEM HERE WHY THE HELL BANDA-SELVA..SELVA-DUDLY…PILOT-JAYAWARDENA
      SIGNED PACTS …?????…IN YOUR COUNTRY IS THERE IS ANY THING EXIST ON THE BASIS OF SELECTING TO UNIVERSITY OR JOBS ON TALENT..???? SIMPLY THIS IS DONE ON RACIST BASIS…WHY YOUR SECURITY SERVICES LOOK OTHER SIDE WHEN TAMIL WERE MASSCARED SINCE 1956……JUST ASK THIS QUESTION YOURSELF…

    • raj

      Well for starters how about gettting rid of the dirstrict quota system ? How about the generation that lost out because of swabasha and Singhala only policies. Short term memory loss pal ?

  11. Marikkar

    We should also look into the issue from the other side, we still remember the previous meetings of Indian Foreign secretary while she was ambassador here, she called the president to her place to advise, I think president would scare to view her comments!

  12. Kumar

    China will split India into pieces. India is going to see stars. The dirty greedy shamless politicians have ruined the country and comes to power by bribery, corruption and thuggery. It is a curse to democracy. Time is runnign out
    unless they change their policy and do soimething, the curse, weeping
    crying by the infants, children, women elderlys CURSE OF MULLIVAKKAL will haunt India for ever and ever. There will be a answer to the curse of these people massacured so brutally and shamelessly for nothing.

  13. Jim USA

    When MR became president he made his first visit to India to fight against LTTE. When he was elected 2nd time he went to Soviet Union to fight against India. MR will abolish Presidential system and will become a PM for third term and he will visit USA to fight against China. If he can complete his second term he will be lucky. The MR brothers are messing with big powers and they have forgetten Srilanka is a small player in the internal areana. Mr.Ban Ki Moon wont get his second term and there are charges waiting bfor him. I will gurantee you that there wont be MR brothers for 2010 UN meeting . Very soon MR and Company will be dancing according to China’s music.

    Remember HR charges for Srilanka is on the way and the General (SF) will be
    killed before that.

    What goes around comes around.

  14. Asoka P

    The Indian FM should accept that there should be gradual progress made in correcting many wrongs done in the past. Not just the loud LTTE sympathisers who should be heard, but there are others who are quietly and patiently waiting to be heard.

    The resettlement of Muslim IDPs and their families to their rightful homes and businesses is a challenging yet highly sensitive and urgent task; and this is an essential early step towards returning the North and North East of Sri Lanka to normality.

    The International Community has been somewhat quiet on the plight of Muslim IDPs who were evicted, en masse, in a ruthless ethnic cleansing operation by the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) in 1990. Some 80,000 Muslims were forced out of their homes and businesses at very short notice (less than 48 hours), with threats of immediate execution. The Muslims were allowed to take with them only a small bundle of clothing and around US$3 in cash. Their money and jewellery were stolen by the LTTE. Their properties, land, homes and businesses, were handed to LTTE faithful who in turn occupied them for many years.

    A far more atrocious ethnic cleansing operation was conducted by the LTTE to remove Sinhala villagers from areas under their control between 1984 and 2000. Many were hacked by crude weapons, and women and children were not spared. The Sri Lankan Government must accord to these displaced Sinhala people and their descendents the same rights that the Tamils in Sri Lanka enjoy, that is, to live and conduct their business anywhere in the island.

    There is a high potential for a damaging conflict that could flare up between the returning Muslim and Sinhala IDPs on one hand, and the Tamils who have come to enjoy the usurped property over many years. Many of these Tamils too became IDPs themselves as a result of subsequent warfare and would be hopeful of returning to the places to which they believe they have a claim.

    With the aim of achieving reconciliation, resettlement as well as peaceful coexistence, the Sri Lankan Government must initiate a South African style “Truth Commission”. Hopefully, this Truth Commission, specifically addressing the return of all IDPs (Muslim, Tamil and Sinhala) will effectively diffuse an emotionally charged situation. Subsequent to completion of this arduous yet urgent task, this Commission should turn its attention to reconciliation between the wider Sinhala and Tamil communities, especially with regard to outstanding grievances of the Tamil community.

    In parallel to this “Truth Commission”, an investigation into the collapse of the 2002 Ceasefire agreement (CFA) must be undertaken. A particular matter for consideration is the conduct of the international monitoring mission which permitted the surreptitious rearming of the LTTE into a mighty force far more powerful than what was there before the CFA. This rearmament could be regarded as the primary factor that emboldened the LTTE to completely disregard the CFA, hence precipitating the devastating war. The International Community that sponsored the failed CFA monitoring mission should bear some responsibility of the cost of that war, in both human and economic terms.

    The SL Government is under pressure for an ‘independent’ investigation into certain alleged incidents pertaining to the conduct of the recently concluded war. As these incidents are not greater in gravity or frequency than incidents that have occurred in other theatres of war involving the western nations in the last two decades, Sri Lanka should follow the examples set by the western nations in addressing the alleged incidents. No more and no less!!

    • Dilshan

      Did you write this for Ban KI Moon in United Nations to reply?

      • Asoka P

        No, specially for you Dilshan and other friends !!

        • Vathy

          This shows how ignorant you are shameless Asoka. Obviously you do not know to analyse political moves but have an emotional problem against LTTE. India and Sri Lanka signed UN conventions and then are violating them. If your sinhalease army occupied our lands in the name of high security zones is it justified? Didn’t they violate our rights? Now they are giving it to lazy sinhalease who are not earning enough money to buy their lands.

        • Asoka P

          Vathy, hopefully there will be a “Truth Commission” regarding resettlement of all IDPs (Tamil, Muslim and Sinhala). Grievences must be voiced and fogiveness sought.

        • Dilshan

          Whatever or all the things you said is not wrong, but you could have looked many more Truths. Still not bad for a start.

          That is what UN – Ban Ki Moon has been asking (today) for the Reconsiliation that is ignored by the Singheelam. Tamileelam is crying with paid but Sinhgeelam is not listening. Even more Singheelam is jailing and humiliating the Great Hero of our Time, Sarath Fonseka.

          If they(Singheelam) can’t understand and Respect Sarath Fonseka just because of HIS Caste and Ancestry, then How CAN this Buddhist Singheelam will even LOOK AT our Problem in Eelam/Hela.

    • David

      Well reasoned Asoka, but I might take slight issue on your last paragraph, whilst its true that the SL HR abuses is “not greater in gravity or frequency than incidents that have occurred in other theatres of war involving the western nations” there is one major difference and that is that the Sri Lanka government maybe resposible for killing its own innocent civilians, or at least did not take reasonable care to protect the lives of Tamils in the N and E.

      It might be argued that if the actions of the GOSL were above suspicion it might be reasonable to have an independent investigation. After all the lack of independent observers during the first 4 months of 2009 leaves a lot of unanswered questions.

      • Asoka P

        A few instances of misadventure in the heat of the battle do not warrant a call for a war crimes investigation; – an internal military inquiry (in the Israeli style) will do. Our media must be explicit on this point.

        According to the standards applied by western powers in Iraq and Afghanistan, there were no ‘war crimes’ whatsoever committed by SL armed forces.

        SL armed forces did not go out with the intention of killing civilians. The LTTE used civilians as human shields and put then in direct line of fire. The LTTE has had form in disregarding a basic human right, the right to life for civilians. According to the NATO commander (US General) in Afghanistan, the collateral civilian deaths are the responsibility of the enemy who uses civilians for cover. That US General fully well knew the Taliban’s disregard for human rights.

        The US General also said, he will always rely on air power to minimise on the ground casualties. Civilian deaths occur and customary ‘regrets’ are expressed. None of the western media would cry ‘war crimes’. Rightly so!

        During the last stages of the war, SL soldiers were subjected to unacceptable risks (resulting in unnecessarily heavy casualties) when the air power was withdrawn under pressure from UN and western powers which also forced reduced use of heavy weapons.

        As SL Forces were fighting with their ‘hands tied behind their backs’, they suffered unnecessary casualties (many thousands killed or maimed) because of humanitarian considerations that included denying them the air cover. Their actions are heroic and honourable according to the standards applied by the western media to their own forces.

        In the western media, in Australia for example, the death of a soldier in the battle field is mourned as the “loss of one of the nation’s finest”. Our English language press must learn from them how to express gratitude.

        The established western media are never known to call for war crimes investigations over the activities of the western forces. Likewise, our media must learn to display patriotism and loyalty.

        The failure to denounce these western ‘hypocritical’ calls for the war crimes investigations makes the election chances of the UNP even harder – due to UNP’s association with the west.

        • Asoka
          This war crimes tribunal is bogus invention
          created & invited by MR Clan to investigate
          through their tamil proxy Emil Kanthan & KP
          to gain political mileage, knowing bloody well
          they cant do a ball about it.

    • Scrivan

      It is a good point you raise about the collapse of the so-called internationally backed 2002 CFA but you have conveniently not told the whole truth, as is usual in this internecine internal war. In addition to the point you arise what became of the 4.5B $ aid under that Agreement by the IC to SL yet unaccounted to date! It was supposed to have been given by the IC mainly for reconstruction and development of the war ravaged north and east and for rehabilitation fo the affected people! In 2005 November Japan announced that the entire sium had been all paid out to the SL government! And there were reports of secret palne landings of planes in Katunayake with arms and armaments during that period . Now there is no money even for those those rendered destitute in the Wanni hovel camps! Same story as the missing Tsunami foreign aid of 1.2 B$ . So where are the audits by the Auditor General into these public funds which have been unaccounted for to date?

    • ,,an eleceted democratic government is answerable for its crime..not so called terroists…..understand???

  15. India gets tough only in the media, to hoodwink the Tamilnadu & world Tamil people, behind they pat Rajapakse.

  16. SLPublic

    People its waste and pointless of talking about this, until MR family is in power, Srilanka will not come to another independence. Our people are very stupid and still they believe this government. country is going dogs and criminals.

  17. Let there be no mistake; Tamil aspirations, claim for a homeland, demand for 13th amendment plus, federal solution, are all a part of the new roadmap to Eelam. To understand what would be the outcome of these so-called solutions if implemented; we have to dig in to contemporary south Indian history and particularly that of the Tamil Nadu.

    Tamils had been demanding ‘self-rule’ since long before India got independence. And, we ought to understand that ‘self-rule’ is a euphemism for a separate country. How good Tamils imply ‘self rule’ as a simple devolution scheme, we all know by experience.

    The present day states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh constitute Madras Presidency at the time of Independence. And, Madras Presidency was empowered with federal powers from the time of Indian independence by the name Madras state. Its Chief Minister was empowered with land as well as police powers. Were the Tamils satisfied? No.

    Tamils instigated other Dravidians in the Madras state to join them to demand ‘self rule’ for Madras state. However, all the non-Tamil Dravidians in Madras state happy to be a part of a huge pie than become a tiny pie. All non-Tamils were seen to have been satisfied for being a part of India. When Tamils realized this mindset of other Dravidian they moved on to demand for ‘self rule’ on their own.

    India did the biggest mistake by re-defining its ‘states’ on a clear racial and linguistic line. It has never recovered from that blunder even to date. In 1953 Andhra Pradesh was formed, and Tamils were encouraged to concentrate in the Madras state. In 1956 the Bellary and South Kanara districts were given to Mysore state. And Kerala was formed from the Malabar district, the former princely states of Travancore and Cochin. When all the others were gone, only Tamils were there in the Madras state. In other words; Tamils got their own racial state. Were the Tamils satisfied? NO.

    The cat got out of the bag in 1962. The DMK stood for 1962 state legislature election on separation ticket. DMK fought that election on that single point and increased its share of seats from 15 to 50.routed the opposition. It proved that Tamils wanted not more devolution but a total separation.

    The fact that Hindi was made the national language of India six years afterwards or 1968 Tamils couldn’t claim they wanted separation because Hindi was forced upon them.

    India grasped the game plan of Tamils and responded in a very clear manner. Nehru had put a stop to Tamil separation demand for good. He did not do so with carrot but a big stick.

    Prime Minister of India, Nehru had passed an amendment to the Indian constitution to ban individuals and political parties that promote separation from contesting elections. DMK had to choose between losing their parliamentary seats and dropping the demand for separation. The Central Committee of the DMK met at Royapuram on November 3, 1963, and unanimously voted to drop its demand for independent Dravida Nadu.

    In 1968, India renamed Madras state as ‘Tamil’ Nadu on a racial basis. Central Government’s aim had been to wither Tamil separatism in India. True, they have succeeded their aim to a certain extent in one way. They passed the buck to Sri Lanka. That is; once Tamils of India realised their dream of a separate country would not come true in India, they moved all their energies to Sri Lanka.
    Kiths and kin of Tamil Nadu politicians had declared the infamous Wadukodai resolution and planted the Eelam disease to divide Sri Lanka. They subscribed LTTE to be a world class terrorist organisation from a rag tag outfit.

    Now that LTTE and its leaders is no more, a formidable force of Tamil Nadu politicians; their kiths and kin in Sri Lanka like Ananda Sangaree, Pillayan and etc; and the powerful one track mind Diaspora Tamils; and their supporters like International community, NGOs, INGOs and Christian Evangelists tell us that there is an ethnic problem. And the way to solve it is power sharing is. But the Sinhalese do not believe Tamils have a problem here in Sri Lanka.

Ya, don’t bring the jokers politics here.Do you know why the tamil were fighting(asking) since 1948?Do you also know the the jokers were resposible to train the tamil youths to fight to get what they want?why the LTTe came to the scene?they asked freedom for tamil,and they fought.They could have finished the MR’s hoodlums off, if the jokers and the chinese not involved.it is not “here today and gone tomorrow”.The ideology is growing, rooted very well and it will reach its height when the time comes.Anyawy watch out the lavatory the chinese and pakis are hiding!

        Leela you are nothing but a stupid person. Please read Mr. Suryanarayan’s seminarpaper on India’s relationships with its’ own states before writing anything. Then you will know that even in India there are no rights given to the states. !3th amandment is nothing but an eye wash. There are pluses? what about the minus ones? what is offered by Mahinda is nothing but giving one person to call himself(herself ) to be called a chief minister of Northern provincial coucil. Unless that person licks Mahinda’s feet that person had nothing. Tamils are bright people.

        • You haven’t mentioned where I could read Suryanarayan’s paper. You didn’t get what I had been trying to imply; what I meant was that power devolved to ‘states’ in India was sufficient to other Dravidian but not to Tamils. They did and they do want nothing but a separate country.

          I don’t know about in India. But they will never get it in Sri Lanka. If you like, you may read why I say so, below.

      • I don’t think I live in a cocoon. Had you read my comments here during the presidential elections you wouldn’t have undermine me. I do not say things because of the heat of the night but what had taken place and by careful analysis. That is why my predictions on political front very often come true. Please read what I have written far below as well.

        If you like go to my write-ups in lankaweb.com and particularly one in the address given below. There I have opened my mind. Give your comment there or here, I shall answer the way I can. Regards.

      Interesting…I guess that those who ask for the 17th Amendment to be implemented are also using that as an excuse to march towards a Tamil Homeland.

      If you are one of those who do NOT believe that there is an ‘Ethnic Problem’ in SL, ask the Presedent who has muttered for at least two years about solving it.

      The Rajapaksa family do not believe that a solution is required, but that actually does not hide the problem,

      Rajapaksa will eventually wind SL back 30 years…how lucky that Gota will still be here to save the Nation from all those ungreatfull minorities

    • ..the recent election clearly show that there are two nations in Sri Lanka…earlier they said Tamils voted /boycotted election because of the fear of rebels….now…70% boycotted the election..and gave a slap to poverty and illiterate India and some western nations who talk about negotiated settlement…,,,

      • It is a lie to say that 70% of Tamils boycotted Presidential elections. Electoral list that is being used were prepared in the 1980s. Your sun-goat had driven your people abroad and to other parts of the country since. See the increase in population of Tamils in Colombo. And one million Tamil diaspora; They haven’t just materialized; they’ve gone from those areas.

        50% of the voters are not there in their original habitat. It is not me but the District secretaries who say so.

        We know that unrealistic people like you are looking far another sun-goat. Our government will take care of all sun-goats that you may create just like KP, Ragan and etc.

        Be sensible man, be sensible; and let us live and let live.

        • ..JUST ONE MINUTE WHY THE HELL STILL YOUR FAVOURITE GOVT. IS UNABLE TO ISSUE THE DEATH CERTIFICATE…IF THEY HAVE KILLED SOMEONE….AND MADE ALL MODAYAS TO DANCE FOR FREE LIQUOR???…YOUR STATISTICS NEVER WORK..LOOK AT THE PERCENTAGE OF VOTES RECEIVED BY YOUR FAVOURITE PRESIDENT IN THE EAST….EVEN AFTER THE THUGGERY AND THREAT OF HIS GOONS….

        • ..THE BIGGEST JOKE IS RAJAPAKSE GOT SUBSTANTIAL VOTES EVEN IN MULLAITIVU….EVEN GUYS IN ANGODA WONT BELEIVE THIS…BUT MODAYAS WIL ACCEPT WITHOUT ANY QUESTION LIKE THE RESULTS IN AMBALANGODA AND ATANAGALLA..

    • ..just one minute where was this LTTE when you masscared Tamil during 56,58,60s ,70 s and 83 …and your forces and police looked other side..LTTE HAS NOT LANDED FROM SKY….all you must take responsibility for the birth …probably the rebirth of rebels..for the time being dance..for free liquor…

    • To Leela
      yes i agree with you on this comment where as with SF i have
      difference of opnion.
      Yes India started the LTTE, & helped MR to finish it off, if not for
      the support of India Prabakaran will be alive today, But MR is
      taking the glory to his hand alone it was India kept the international Pressure at bay otherwise MR couldnt do a Ball
      about it. but it was SFs strategy that won the war, which you fail to accept.

      • Sheriff: I never did undermine SF’s strategy for winning the war. On the contrary I held him on high esteem until he had become an ungrateful man and join-up with his detractors for political gain.

        Let me tell you a brief about a conversation I had in Nov 1995 with one of my villagers who happened to be a Sargent Major and a surviver from Mulathivu debacle.

        I asked the Sargent who in his opinion would be the best to be the commander of the army if we are to win the war; is it Sarath Fonseka or Janaka Perera? He said both are good and both are committed officers. But ‘Fonseka’ would be better. I asked him; why? He said; Fonseka is a ruthless man who want to kill the enemy and eliminate them and win the war. And he said; another plus point is, he will not go by the book. Whereas Perera would emphasize on the rule of law and minimal killings.He also said; Fonseka couldn’t careless about his own army causalities. Whereas Perera cares about it a lot. This Sargent further said this war with LTTE cannot be won by abiding to our rules but by LTTE rules.

        Though I do not know Fonseka, I have knew many army high rankers and a few retired Major Generals who knew him in and out. From what they say, I realized Fonseka would be a good commander material but a dangerous presidential material.

        Another point; Fonseka would never have won the war if not for President Rajapakse’s astute foreign policy and able management domestic strikes etc.

        I suppose most Sinhala people accept this view.

        • To Leela
          Your relying on one soldiers preferences, my dear leela srilanka is a country with diverse
          views if you speak to 5 people each has difference of opinions never agree to one another, i dont know the reason but its way
          of life in srilanka which must be rectified.

          One thing i know SF is not corrupt as
          MR & Clan & his ministers.

          Regarding that foreign policy of MR who
          withstood International policy is unacceptable to believe , he was guaranteed
          full support by India without that he would
          never have given the green light to SF,
          every western country take permission to
          poke their noses from India.
          its not Mahindas achievements, Indian Congress waited for the right time to finish of LTTE as all the aspirations of theirs are fullfilled by our rogue politicians, such as 3000 acres in Sampur, Trincomalee
          petrol tanks, IOC project, import of goods
          from India etc etc, dont try to white wash
          MR he was forcefully pushed to be a patriot
          by JVP, Hela urumaya & Pachaauda while
          with the JVP & after.
          Mahinda & Ranil are in the same boat take my word if UPFA fails to get 2/3rd
          he will invite Ranil & Clan to join him.
          both want to sideline SF.

      • You are absolutely correct Mr.Sheriff. One could only present his views and it is up to the readers to reject or accept it. So I just write what I believe is right.

        From my fathers time, our family had voted UNP. They were anti-leftists and ardent supporters Senanayakas. I personally knew President Premadasa and supported him every way I could. I thought Premadasa is the person who could unite this country and make it prosperous for I knew he is very capable, intelligent, hard working and had feelings of the poor. Alas, he was blasted unexpectedly.
        Next man, Gamini Dissanayaka too could have done a similar job but in a different way, was also blasted soon afterwards.

        When RanilW became the leader of UNP, we knew we got the wrong man for the job. I never have met RanilW but many who knew him personally told me enough about him. I gather he has no leadership qualities; he trust all white skinned westerners are here to save this country; he believes Norwegians are angles; he doesn’t care about the feelings and thinking of the majority – Sinhala Buddhists; he seemed to believe the majority have to fit in to his plutocratic thinking.

        At long last when people realized bandit queen ChandrikaK was a complete misfit, they had to take the refuge in the RanilW’s UNP in 2001. And all we thought about RanilW has become evident during his rule between 2001-4. Take it from me; it is that rule by his Christian oligarchy that pushed Sinhala Buddhist of the UNP towards Venerable Soma and finally to the JHU. We too have abandoned UNP and followed the trend.

        I have never voted SLFP in my life till I voted MR in 2005. MR had not betray the trust we placed in him. That is why
        Vast majority of Sinhala Buddhists support MR now. Though the journalists that back the IC, NGOs, and Christians Evangelists foretasted nationalist vote would be split at the Presidential election they voted MR en masse.

        Contrary to your thinking Sheriff, Sinhala Buddhists believe MR had unite them; just the same way Tamils thought sungoat will unite them and Muslims thought Ashroff will unite them.

        Increasingly more and more intelligent Tamils and Muslims will vote for MR and his party in coming elections because; they foresee the dividends of peace and prosperity is coming to them as well. Those that think otherwise can slog on.

        MR and his ‘Mahinda Chintanaya’ is the correct path to the progress of this country.

        • ayesh

          There is nothing Sinhala-Buddhsim about MR ! He is a liar and opportunist who would happily SELL both Sinhala & Buddhism for his own survival !

          Look at MRs family Leela. MR is married to a Christian, A very STRONG Christian. His sons went to St Thomas An Anglican school ! MR would BAN any book or movie critical of Christianity !

          Look at MRs new found friends. Burmese junta, who have slaughtered many many Buddhists monks ! Chinese Communist, done the same for Tibetan Buddhists ! And last but not least, the fanatic Iranian President. Do I need to waste server space here ?

          Look at MR best local buddies. We have casino Dammhika leading BOI ! I have never heard a Casino Mogul heading an Institute like this in the whole world !!!! We have Cabaral another God believer screwing our economy ! We have Karuna who slaughtered our SINHALESE peoples yet MR utters nothing of this ! No apologies for 700+ MAINLY Sinhalese Policemen who perished, No apologies for 70+ SINHALA villagers who perished in Gonagala !!

          And yet you speak of MR’s Sinhala Buddhism !! Like most of the SriLanikans YOU are brainwashed my dear ! That’s why you see people, I mean CHICKENS who ran away from the ARMY as heroes AND people who risked their lives fighting LTTE as traitors !

          Mahinda chinthanaya is a piece Sh*t covered in a nice pack ! And you think this sh*t can take us right path ? Must be dreaming Leela !!

          Well u cant fool all SINHALESE all the time ! Will see what SINHALESE do for these cardboard heroes.

          BTW, I am glad that you accept my challenge. So if General get elected YOU WILL STOP writing here. And if he loses I WILL do the same.

        • As I said before, I cannot be the President of this country. Like you, I too have to chose either SF or MR. Though I observed and realized the trend is MR’s favor, I didn’t chose MR on that count. For one I opted for him on the grounds that; a known devil is better than an unknown angle. For another was on what they promised, that is of what I thought they could fulfill. So I chose the one that has implementable policies that are nearest to mine. I may have influenced a few people to change their mind.I am glad I made the right choice.

          You see ayesh; neither who MR married to nor which school his sons being educated does not influence my opinion of him. It is his, his wife’s and his sons’ action that mattered to all of us. If they act in detriment to the interest of our country and our nation we should start to act against them. As for now people are happy with them but not with many of the ministers. In spite of their spending spree, you will see many of them will fell through this time.

          I too may not have chosen Cabaral or Dhammika. Not just those two there are lot of others that I may not approve of. Did ChandricaK and RanilW chose the right people when they were at the helm? No.

          As for Karuna, he may have done all the villainy in the world when he was a LTTEer. But what matters is; what he is doing at present.

          I suppose we have to see the larger picture painting all matters in to it.

        • To Leela
          in reply to your comment today 9th @10-44 am
          its nice of you to reply my comments decently
          thank you very much.
          Okay you trust MR, not betraying voting for him
          is your franchise, but this majority singhalese
          Bhuddhist united & supporting MR doesnt hold
          water anymore after arresting SF, entire clergy is divided & this radical comments
          about singhala bhuddhism do more harm
          than good to Srilanka.

          No good singhala bhudhist will support a
          liar who appeases thugerrism & coruption
          like MR & Clan .
          I can remember MR showing a piece of
          paper in a meeting attended by thousands
          as the agreement copy of SF & TNA sambandan which was a blatant lie never
          existed, SF never had any agreement sighned with anybody, also SF is going to
          Merge the N/E arent these public lie to twist the mind of the voters for a president
          for his survival Frame & innocent man as
          Traitor.
          War crimes theory is a bluff to hoodwink the gullible, SF never said that he will testify against any of his soldiers he fully
          accepted the responsibility. but refused to be held responsible for the defence ministry is it wrong to be truthful.
          Until now he has not exposed any State secrets or testified in any Tibunals
          He should testify now if he knows any wrong doings of Gota after going through
          such humuliation.

          only bogus Bhuddhist who dont practice
          Bhuddhism what it preached will support
          MR & the muslims & Tamils too who want to benefit thats the trend now, i cant find
          any honest person with MR Clan including
          your Rathana Hamaduruwo & that muslim
          gloat Niyas Mowlavi who recieves a pay
          sheet with all the perks as presidential advisor, Hamaduruwo got a nice palace build in his name to the tune of 3000/=
          million borne by taxpayers.

          I will reveal another secret conveyed by SF
          to JVP, A emissary monk was sent by MR
          & Clan to SF, forcing him to give up politics & leave abroad no harm would come to him as all expenses would be bourne by the state, conscience knows all
          charges are Fake & cooked up as SF is
          a threat to their Leadership including Ranil.

        • ayesh

          U say,
          ‘If they act in detriment to the interest of our country and our nation we should start to act against them ‘

          So leela please elaborate me, Mahinda’s son was caught red handed standing neck to neck with a LTTE financier, same dudes spent millions to kill our Sinhalese brothers & sisters. So, did you act against this ? How so ?

          Like Karuna can any LTTE killer or Any MASS killer in that case, can be forgiven easily ?

          Was Mahinda right in releasing Minister Milroy’s wife in less than 2 years, after she was sentenced for 1 st degree murder ?
          Was this also a part of Mahinda Chinthanaya ?

          Why only ministers wives,sons, daughters get these pardons ? Is this the beauty of Mahinda Chinthanaya?

          I am not a big fan of either Ranil or Chandrika, and unlike U, I have never even voted for UNP. BUT one thing is sure, Casino dudes were not given high government posts in either of those governments. Only Buddhist Mahinda did that !

          Buddhist Mahinda is an oxymoron ! And only morons cant fathom that !!

    • Jane Warrant

      The Tamil people of India don’t want a separate country. There are some that do but the majority don’t. They don’t want one because of economic and political one. Those that do want one for linguistic, cultural reasons. All the languages in South Asia come from 2 languages, Sanskrit and Tamil including Sinhalese. Tamil is an ancient language.

      States in India are based on Linguistic lines. English is the de facto official language of parliament and many other areas. Tamils have always liked English not so much hindi or Sinhala. Tamil Nadu separating would mean a lot of harm to Tamils in terms of economics. It would take away mobility rights.

      Tamils control Police, Justice, Law, education and a host of other things in India. Madras or Chennai as it is now called is the economic, cultural, film capital of South India.

      In education it is Tamil only with English and to a lesser extent hindi as second languages. Putting India as first language by some were one of the reasons the whole DMK movement started. Tamil people’s love for their language and vast history is great.

      The last president Abdul Khalam was Tamil. So were many other presidents of India. The prime minister has not been Tamil yet but they have been of the other Southern provinces that stem form Tamil language. In the civil service Nehru promised that Tamils will keep their allotted spaces in government with English as the language. The concessions and many more are the reasons that India is one country. Another reason is that India more like the European Union than an actual country because of strong states and weak central government.

      The Tamils also enjoy other advantages such as having India’s Internet fiber optic landing points in Chennai and Bombay which is a huge advantage. Chennai is the automotive capital of India or the Detroit of India. India is also a secular state.

      The Tamil identity is one of race, language, culture. Anyone that calls themselves a Tamil embraces its language and culture is Tamil. Anyone born a Tamil is Tamil even if they don’t know the language or its culture.

      If there was an election the majority would say no. There are some who want a separate country for the sake of a separate country but most don’t want one right now. This is very different from Lanka where safety alone is good reason for separate nation never mind the others including claims of war crimes and genocide.

      • You are wrong. To say the least , ask any scholar of oriental languages; he will tell you that Sinhalese language is ‘not’ developed from Tamil language as you say. Most words in Sinhala is from Hela, Sanskrit and Pali. See the shape of Sinhala writing; they are circular to a great extent. There is no resemblance of Tamil letter shapes what so ever in Sinhala letters. Having said that, I admit there are many Tamil, Portuguese, Dutch, English words in our language; just like all other languages today.

        What is Hela? To start with, Sinhalese history is the Sri Lankan history. Sinhala history is not a drummed up history. You can read it in Mahawamsa, Chulawamsa etc. They list our kings and their reigns more narratively and logically than the list of the decedents of the first man, Adam that is listed in the Bible.

        You can visualize what is described in Mahawamsa from thousands monuments throughout the country in ancient capitals like Anuradhapura. You can feel and read our history in rock edits carved by Sinhala kings. Some of them dated back as far as 2500 years. Oxford history scholars such as Rees Davies. No such proof of continual Tamil history is found in Sri Lanka. Show me if there is any. As you say, Tamil history is found in present day Tamil Nadu area

        Sinhalese are not decedents of Tamils. Truth is; many a Tamils had been assimilated to Sinhala society when Tamil invaders were beaten or when our Kings married to Dravidain royalty.

        Let me tell you how Sinhalese came to be a race. Wijaya and company of 500 men that settled in Sri Lanka two thousand five hundred years ago had mixed with local tribes Yaksa and Naga and gradually evolved to be Sinhalese. If Tamils were here in Sri Lanka at the time they too should have joined up. But scholars say, there were no evidence for them to have been settled here at that time.

        Have you heard of a supper intelligent Dravidian monk named ‘Buddhaghosa’ that came to Sri Lanka around 412 AD to translate Tripitaka (twenty five books of 500 pages each) from Sinhala to Pali. Can you imagine the status of Sinhala language around 1600 years ago to have a translation of that sophistication and magnitude?

        Do you know why they had Tripitaka in Sinhala? That is because; the original Pali version had been destroyed and was not available in India. It was available only in Sinhala at the time. Ask Thai, Burmese, Cambodian, Chinese or any Modern day history scholar; he will tell you that the Pali version they have now is the one that had been translated from Sinhala to Pali by Buddhaghosa around 412 AD. I hope that explanation would suffix to show you that Sinhala language is much older than 700 years.

        I am not a language scholar. But, I can tell you this much; the Sinhala alphabet consists of 61 symbols: 18 vowel symbols, 41 consonant symbols and 2 semi-consonant symbols; whereas the Tamil alphabet consists of 48 symbols: 14 vowel sounds and 26 consonant sounds.

        Sinhala is a member of the Indo-Aryan family of languages; whereas Tamil is genetically unrelated to the North Indian languages such as Hindi, Bengali, and Gujarati. The modern script used in writing Sinhala is unique to it. ‘ba’ and ‘ga’ letters are there in Sinhala alphabet but ‘not’ in Tamil alphabet. That is why ordinary Tamils cannot pronounce ‘baa’ or ‘gaa’ sounds. They sound them as ‘waa’ and ‘ka’. This does not mean to say that Tamil is an inferior language. On the contrary it has its own sophistications. I am only trying to show Sinhala is not based on Tamil language. What you and that Dilshan write here about Sinhala language is nothing but canard.

        • ..THERE WAS NO SINHALA LANGUAGE BEFORE 10TH CENTURY….WRITE MORE LIKE THIS..SOON MAHAWAMSA WIL WRITE KOTMALE..MAHAWELI PROJECTS WERE COMPLETED BY SINHALA ENGINEERS UNDER THE RULE OF JAYAWARDENA….NOT A WORD WILL MENTION ABOUT UK..OR SWEDEN…

        That is the way all the Evil Religions(Buddhism, Christianity and even Islam) destroy the Indigneous Temples and build their worshiping places, as Cultural Genocide. eg Cambodia, and most of the Asian Buddhist countries(You can imagine HOW did they create the ONLY Buddhist countries – just looking at Singheelam), South/North American countries, Ayothia, Goa, or even Jaffna.

        These Evils will come to END, sooner or later.

      • Even Wikipedia gives very little about Tamil kingdoms in Sri Lanka. It gives Kingdom of Aryacakravarti only from 1215 to1619. Even that was closely associated with Chola and Pandya kingdoms.
        You Koopu and Dilshan talks from your heart than your head. Believe what you like. Facts are facts. Sinhala vocabulary do not have very many Tamil words. When we watch a Tamil movie with sub titles, we do not understand a word of spoken Tamil there. I am sure it is the same for Tamils when they watch a Sinhala film. But when we watch a Hindi film its the other way round. Why?
        A Hindi person can lean Sinhala and visa versa easier than a Tamil learning Sinhala and visa versa. Why?

        • Dilshan

          Yes, you understand Hindi more easily than Tamil, ONLY because of Buddhism and Paali language. In fact, the whole Eelam people were converted to Buddhism ONCE, then Tamileelam people went back to their Indigneous way of life and Singheelam people are still under the IRON GRIP of the Buddhist Monks.

          And you know what are those Monks are urging the Singheelam people to do with Tamileelam people.

          It is sad and bad that once upon a time very UNNECESSARILY we had Buddhism. Bharatha India Bharatha Pakistan and other Bharatha countrie got rid of Buddhism. Only our Eelam is still struggling with that Evil.

    There were two cultures in Sri Lanka the good one and the bad one. Any one can identify that here. The language the thinking the words everything is unique. No other race in the world has it. Search the web if you find one tell me.
    India will treat Sri lanka in Indian way. crude not reliable but last longs

  20. P Ram

    Sinhalese are determined to destroy their country and will not learn the lessons.
    Tamils have more international support after the defeat of the LTTE. Tamils should utilise that if the military is not withdrawn from the North and East. As a Tamil I need to live with Sinhalese and oppose government sponsored colonisation. Sinhalese has lived many years in Jaffna without any problems. Please decentralise all the powers and develop harmony between Sinhalese and Tamils and make the one of most develop country in the world.

In 1971, The Singhalese youth went on an insurrecion.75 000 young boys and girls were killed .compared to that our boys are still alive except the leaders.We are not able to live and let live.In Tamil Elam also we will be like that Kill our oppoents .Pirabhharan did not tolerate opponents.He killed them all. Mahinda is willing to accept some of them in his own party.But hen u will say they are traitors. so how can he make reconconliation?. In a APRC there must be consensus.But if some are not willing, what do u expect MR to do? The people willing must be taken.u say he is making them his slaves. there are good people among the Singhalese -like Prof.vitharna, Dr.Bhau, SD Bnranike and and others. The problem is that the people are not educated enough.Politicians depend on them for their sustenance. In Australia, Ken Rudd is losing his suport . About The war victims .Let us leave it to the judges of the UN Court to make their decisions. Let us not try to make any prejudices. If the judges are carried away by these allegations they may not give a proper verdict.
    then reconciliaion will follow.The US and the Eu insist on that. Somalia’s Foreign Minister is in the War CrimesTribunal. Similar fate will fall on others.I fully endorse Asoka P. A Truth Commission.There must be justice for Sinhalese also.Tamils never ask for that. Both Singhalese and Tamils are South Indians were brought to Ceylon to quell the Mukkuwa rebellion. History is repeating itself. Tamils were brought to help the Singhalese from Moslems. The De Zylivas, Foseka, De Soysa are from Goa in India. But carving an Ellam at least ten million people will die.That is why India avoided it It can be solved by negotiation and some duress by USA, EU and other powers.
    Remember America has not forgotten Armenia.The probelm is that other minorities also don’t support a separate state.Can just one million create ThamilEallm? .How ever loudly we may shout. India is going ot settle for something.But it has to get the others to make their views clear. MR alone cannot decide. I feel a rational soluion is feasible. But will theTamils accept ?They rejected Thimpu.t hey refused to attend the Oslo negotianinthe USA.Is Thimpu not better than what Tamils in Malaysia get? Let us be patient .Let us be tolernt even to our enemies. Then the International community will help us.See Burma they are helping.there is also Realism. they must also benefit..Read the columns in the Tmilnet.com

    India Get lost!

    If you are not careful, you will lose more than you think Ms. Rao. You have more problems than us. Go and sort them out. We don’t need any political solution. Our main problem now is the diaspora Tamils. Let us concentrate on them. Just back off. Otherwise, you will see more Chinese faces around your country.

    Hi,
    Give some diamonds to her , she will be alright, She is the only one who invited MR to house and gave dinner.May be she is coming to see her old buddies. You can bribe any Indians and they export birbe and corruption.
    As you all know , what happen during the war time.All minsters from India came and what happened , 30000 civilians died .India created the troubles and resopnosbile fro all war crimes.India wants to finsh LTTE to get Revengue and come to power, now they are unable to tolerate the support coming from Western countries. Tamils should approch china to help. No point of beliving India and work with Chinese to divide India in to nine states like Russian state Federtion.
    UN is listening to India then why should they have UN human right committes etc.
    US want go against India so poor Tamils have no way unilt find another Prbaharan NOT KARUNA

    • DONT WORRY CHINA WILL DO THIS SOON….ATLEAST POVERTY INDIANS WILL HAVE A SQUARE OF DAILY MEAL IF INDIAN GO BACK TO PRE-BRITISH STRUCTURE…..INDIAN DEMOCK-CRY-ZY HAS MADE THE INDIA AS WORLDS NO:1 POVERTY..ILITERATE NATION..

  26. Vathy

    If India wants to help Tamils they must admit how they violated human rights and UN charter of rights of Tamils. They even entered hospitals and killed even patients, raped women and killed thousands of civilians when they came as “Peace Keeping force. Last May they even participated by sending army to fight. Now RAW is abducting Tamil refugees fearing that they could be potential witnesses. If they admit these and ask West to take over the investigations it is more than enough. No wolf needs to cry about lambs.

  27. Randeniya

    Once of a time former Inidian FS, Romesh Bandari’s wife was given 100,000 rupees worth of Diamond Necklace to sort things out and now all what we have to do is to gift a Rolerx watch to Mr Nirubama Rao and all will be sorted.

  28. c rodrigo

    since india has lost the respect and the confidence tamils had towards them, China would be ideal to back for their rights ,but for tamils it would be a tall order.since all tamil political leaders have been eliminated by VP there is no rudder for tamils. though MR would like to consider a settlemennt the forces attached to MR would not allow.RW has no sinhala backing for any change.unless RW and MR agree for settlement without inviting further unwarrnated intervention by other countries.sinhalease tamils and muslims have shed enough blood. why cant the powers who have the key to open the door for economic and social development of Srilankans take the required steps leaving their ideologies behind only for this cause.

  29. Martin Thomas

    Leave all this garbage talk about rapes and killings, Seriously consider the Indian proposal and come out with a workable solution to the Tamil and Muslim issues or you will be having another war with in the next 20 years. All these time the MR and his government is only giving excuses after excuses , First waiting for the Presidential election then now the general elections to be over to put forward the develution package to solve the Tamil problem. Then he would say I can do now becouse my party has not got the absolute majority in the election. Finally nothing going to happen. He things, if can drag the issue for few more years the whole country and the world including the Tamil Diaspora will forget. He is sadly mistaken on this issue this time. If he does not solve this he is going to be forced to resolve or they would taken to the internation court to get justice to the Tamils. He will have to face diffeculties like sanctions and band the government officials visiting on business to western world. Even Indian will change their attitude towards the government of Sri lanka. China money alone is not going to help him. Then comes the human rights issue. He has not excape from this. So be wise and take India’s advise

    • Kalag

      Martin Thomas, The last thing you want to do is to take Indian advice. They never have/had any interest other than their own. The Tamils gradually realise that it is not political problem but economic problem. But Indians and dispora Tamils are stirring up for their own benefit.
      Nobody will go in front of any internaional court. That is for sure. The next generation of diaspora Tamils will forget, if not one more generation.
      If there is another war, that will be the end of Tamils in Sri Lanka. Singhalese people had enough. They will demand wipe out of Tamils and that is what will happen. It is the Tamils who have to be careful. Once the Tamils are wiped out, Sri Lanka will be a strong country in the region.

  30. Scrivan

    What is it Nirupama Rao can achieve when no leess than the Indian President and PM Manmohan Singh failed on two occasions when they met with President MR and their advice went through one ear and came out of the other ear, literally! You can take a horse to the water’s edge but you cannot force ti to drink it if it just doesn’t want to! She will most likely have another one of those friendly visits, just like Sri Lankan high level delegations galore to India but at the end of the day no solutions other than spending public monies! Besides India very good for saree buying for wives and others. Helps improve trade relaltions at the least! Meanwhile real problems keep multiplying. That is Sri Lankas’ past, present and likely to remain in the future too. Else, how will poiticians thrive?

  31. ,,,how many Sinhalease know that there is a coastel town named Panandura in Kerala..india???? how come this Panadura appeared and when????

    • Dilshan

      Thurai(Harbour) or Thuraimuham(Harbour Entry(face)) is an ancient Tamil Word.

      Kerala is actually called Sera Nadu where Sera Dynastry ruled. Then Sanskrit pronounciations they called as Cherala Nadu and when Europeans(Portugese/French) pronounces as Kerala Nadu.(Chemistry-Kemistry).

      If you look at in our Eelam, all the names are from Ancient Eelam words and then changed according to Paali pronounciations. Kalutura=Kaluthurai, Panadura=Pananthurai etc etc.

      Wellawatthai in Singheelam, Kottawatthai, Silawatthai in Tamileelam. These words and names are just belong to Eelam.

  32. Sootin

    India got caught for the dead rope of MR and he had been cheating this country
    people as well as foreigners, he care too hoots of any foreign country, because
    he is a 3rd class person in this country. See what he has done to this country
    bloody bugger, he ruined this country, he should be killed first and his junta
    thereafter and hope this will take place very soon.

  33. Writing to Daily Mirror on 18/12/2009, Mr.Devanesan Nesiah said; two large segments of the Tamil population had boycotted State Council elections of 1931. He also said; Jaffna Youth Congress boycotted it because they wanted immediate Independence meaning separate country or Eelam. The other section wanted the British Raj to remain here and, they did not want any independence at all.

    But DBS Jayaraj has written to Daily Mirror columns and said “When Tamils the cry for a separate ‘Tamil state’ was first proposed by a little known man called Visvalingam in 1918 there were absolutely no takers for it.” And he also said “When the brilliant Tamil intellectual C. Sundaralingam articulated a clear-cut political demand for Eelam, which he spelled out as ‘Eylom’, he was scorned as an “eccentric”, and his demand rejected by the Tamil politicians.” He went further and said “ even the explicit reference to Tamil Eelam by the intellectual giant Sir Ponnambalam Arunachalam in 1924 struck no responsive chord in the Tamil heart.”

    Now, Mr.Devanesan and Mr.Jayaraj has given out two opposing but solemn anecdotes. What I take out from both these stories is that; Tamils had wanted to establish their own country in this Island all along. I like to hear any views against it.

    My next point is; regardless where ever they live; be it India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Europe, America and et al; they are one nation of approximately seventy million strong; but they have no country. Because Tamils cannot have their own country in India, they strive hard to have it in Sri Lanka. That is the crux of the matter.

    Now, 75% of the population of this country are Sinhalese. And thanks for the intransigence and the ruthlessness of LTTE, more than 70% of them tend to understand this reality and accept MR is their saviour and RanilW is a foe. Take it from me; MR will handle all our detractors as he had done in the past. We know some Tamils will fall in line and others will moan forever.

    I must say this also; like Hebrews that descended to Palestine, Tamils too wanted to possess the North and the East of Sri Lanka. Historical right that Hebrews claim for that their ancient kingdom ‘Judea and Samaria’ (present day Israel and more) is undeniably evident from their scriptures, monuments and other artefacts. Tamils also can lay similar claims to all of the Madras Presidency of the British and perhaps more. But Tamils have no such proof what so ever to any part of Sri Lanka.

    • Dilshan

      Eelam People are Indigneous and speak Tamil since ancient. AFTER the arrival of the Buddhist Monks(with Singha Flag-Asoka’s flag) and converted Eelam/Hela people into Buddhism, and Paali Language was used heavily for Religous purpose and communicate with Paali Language speaking Monks, our Eelam People started to speak Paali Mixed Tamil Language. That language is called as Singheela/Singhala Language, nowadays. Also, those people speak Singheela Lanugae are called as Sinhgeela/Singhela People.

      The Rest are still Indigenous and speak modern Tamil in Eelam and they want to keep their Indigenous way of life. They want to live with their ancient ancestors way of life in their land, but the Mongolian Buddhist Monks are still have iron grip of our Singheela Breathren.

    • ..WHEN BRITISH MADE MADE CENSOR DURING THE END OF 18TH CENTURY IT WAS RECORED THAT PEOPLE IN ANURADHAPURA SPEAK TAMILS..WHAT HAPPEND TO THIS PEOPLE?????? WHEN A MONK ENTERD JUNGLE AROUND POLANARUWA..AFTER INDEPENDENCE HE MET PEOPLE WHO SPOKE TAMIL..WHAT HAPPEND TO THEM TODAY?…JUST 75 YEARS AGO..ASK ANY OLD SINHALEASE THERE WAS NO APRIL NEW YEAR CELEBRATION FOR SINHALALSE…THEY HAVE SIMPLY COPIED THE TAMIL NEW YEAR NOW SAY IT IS THEIRS…..KANDAY PERAHARA WAS STARTED AS A HINDU FESTIVEL…LATER FOLLOWING THE PROTEST OF SIAM MONKS BUDDHIST EVENTS INSERTED..TODAY THEY CALLED THIS AS SINHALA BUDHIST FESTIVEL…

      • ..YES..TAMILS ARE LIVING IN INDIAN CONTINENT ( TODAY INDIA) JUST AT A ROWING DISTANCE AWAY…BUT..THEY ARE NOT BELONG TO SRI LANKA…WAHT A JOKE..EVEN THOUSANDS YEARS AGO THERE WAS A LAND MASS CONNECTED THESE TWO LANDS….TO THIS DAY THERE IS NO HISTORICAL PROVE EVEN IN TO DAYS BANGALDESH ABOUT VIJAYA….AND HIS VOYAGE TO LANKA…FUNNY THING IS HIS SHIP NEVER TOUCHED VISAKAPATNAM,,MANNAR..DANUSKODI….MULLAITIVU..BUT MANNAR..PROBABALY LANKA WAS UP SIDE DOWN AT THAT TIME..

      • EVEN TODAY PEOPLE IN NEGOMBO..CHILAW..PUTTALAM HAVING SINHALA NAMES SPEAK TAMIL AT HOME..WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE REALLY::::? THERE WERE 200 TAMIL SCHOOLS IN THESE AREA DURING BRITISH TIMES WHAT HAPPEND TO THESE SCHOOLS???

    • YOU ARE CORRECT…ABORGINS MIGRATED TO AUSTRALIA AFTER CAPTAIN COOK DISCOVERD THEN COLONISED BY BRITISH..YOU ARE AGAIN CORRECT..RED INDIAN MIGRATED TO AMERICAS…AFTER THE COLONISATION OF EUROPEANS….SO SO TAMILS CAME LATER…TO SRI LANKA HAPPY???

  34. Scrivan

    It is all in the Mahavamsa! Where ignorance is bliss………..

    • According to Wilhelm Geiger, a German scholar Buddhist monks of the Mahavihara maintained chronicles of Sri Lankan history starting from the 3rd century BCE. These annals were combined and compiled into a single document in the 5th century CE by the Buddhist monk Mahathera Mahanama. Its listing of our kings and description of their reigns were much more narrative and logical than the Bible listing of the decedents of the first man, Adam and his decedents.

      You can see for yourselves what is described in Mahawamsa as monuments throughout the country. One could visualize the glory what it would have been at the time if you visit ancient capitals like Anuradhapura. You may not be able to read the rock edits carved by Sinhala kings but you could feel the glory as described in Mahawamsa. Oxford history scholars such as Rhys Davies describe them aptly and say they date back as far as 2500 years.

      However, there are no Tamil annals, monuments or rock edits as described above in Sri Lanka to prove Tamil reign had existed anywhere in Sri Lanka. True, Tamils from India had invaded Sri Lanka many a times. Show me one book written by a reputed scholar showing otherwise.

      All evidences for Tamil reigns were found in present day Tamil Nadu area. None dispute that. Indian Tamil scholars say; the present day Tamil Nadu had been divided into three principal Tamil kingdoms, namely, Chera Nadu, Chola Nadu and Pandya Nadu for over thousand years. And, they were ruled by Chera, Chola and Pandya kings from the time of written Tamil history.

      Even so, one Pandyan King, Parakkirama Pandyan had sought the help of Sinhala king, Parakramabahu the Great to hang on to his capital city of Madurai between 1163 and 1179 A.D. General Lanka Putra went to Madurai with a Sinhala army and installed Parakkirama Pandyan back in his throne. Nevertheless Tamil kingdoms got weaker and weaker within the next few years. And after 1311 A.D. even those three kingdoms ceased to exist. Tamils never have succeeded in having a Tamil kingdom anywhere, since. These are not made up yarn but true facts.

      Tamils are jealous of Sinhala annals and our history. Though they are seventy million, they have no country that can be called Tamil Country.We know that; that is the crux of the matter for the modern day Tamils. Tough luck you cannot have it here. But, you got best of every thing here. We do not discriminate you. You are not victimized for being Tamil. but you will not have 13A etc. So, my Tamil friends; settle down, let us live and let live.
      Those like Dilshan can cry for ever, if they wanted to.

      • Dilshan

        Where did you get the Leela Name from?

        How many Tamil Language words are used in Singheela Language and Tamileela Language?

        Where did the Paali Language speaking Buddhist Monks come from?

        Where is the Buddhism originated from?

        What Buddhism has to do with Eelam/Hela?

        Where is our Indigenous Skin Colour come from?

        And how many Singheela and Tamileela Polititians have the Indigenous Skin Colour? (only Kehilia)

        • ayesh

          Dilshanmugam,

          Can you please show us any ‘HELA’ civilization in south India ? Any use of ’18 Sanniya’ in South India ?

          Japanese language has tons of words borrowed from English. So did Japanese people originated from England ? ?

          And for your funny little comment abt skin colour.
          Portuguese & Dutch both saw significant difference in Sinhalese & Tamil skin colour.
          According to them, Tamils were much more swarthier than Sinhalese.

          Leela is an OLD Sinhalese name. We had even ancient queens with the same name .
          If You can show me there were Tamil Leelas 2000 yrs ago, may be you have a point.

          Happy now ?

        • Dilshan

          Singheelam was under Mongolian Monks and some of them got the Yellow + Eelam Colour and got some Pale Colour. Also they got shorter as most of the Mongolian Monks were short.

          Most of the Singheela People and Tamileela People are still look the same and got the same Eelam Colour.

          We both still use our own Eelam vocabulary which are not used in Tamil Nadu or anywhere.

          Singheelam got the Paali influence more and Tamileelam got more Sanskrit influence. Right now, we both use a lot of Portugese, Dutch and English words.

          My point is….. just becasue of Mongolian Monks came; just because of Portugese/Dutch/English came; just because of Arabic/Chinese came;…….. and changed our colour into some kind of blissful; it doesn’t mean we degrade our OWN(Indigenous) EELAM COLOUR.

        • ..THE CHAIRMAN OF INDIANS BIGGEST TEXTILE MILLS IN MADURAI–LAKSHIMI MILLS IS VELU JAYAWARDANA….SO HE IS A SINHALASE????..TIS JAYAWARDAN….WAS A COMMON NAME AMONG TAMILS MANY THOUSANDS AGO…SINHALA NAIYAKAS ARE RIGINALY FROM MADURAI NAYAKA FAMILY…..NOT FROM KALINGA DESH…..SORRY…

        • ACCORDING TO MAHAWAMSA STORY DUTTA GEMUNU IS BLACK LIKE A CROW…..THEN HOW COME LATEST SINHALESE GOT WHITE SKINS…..???

    my reading of all these comments each of them they are intelligent wise cultured. butby the words they used none of them at least most of them do not know their country their neighbours and friends. ireespective of what race religion language ability to converse with each other is a gift all must learn if you are his her neighbour. man will excist some ohem are capable of reducing their human status below the status of thei copartner another mammal to which animal kingdom we all belog. wr and peace sanity and stupidity is forever going to be there so none of us need to fear. fate and karma is there for all of us to see.

  36. ..IF SINHALEASE REALLY CAME FROM KALINGA DESH (PRESENT BANGALDSEH) WHY THEY HAVE NO LANGUAGE..CULTURAL…FOOD RESEMBLENCE WITH BANGALDESHIES OR NORTH INDIANS..WHY SINHALESE EAT APPAM..PITTU… WHICH ARE 100 % KERALA FOOD…AN ETHINIC COMUNITY NEVER CHANGE FOOD HABIT

  37. ..GO TO ANY VILLAGES IN THAILAND YOU WILL FIND DOZENS..OF ARIYAWATHIES..NADAWATHIES..LEELAWATHIES….SO SO THESE WOMEN HAVE SINHALA ORIGIN EH???? TILL RECENTLY LAXMI..ISWARI WERE COMMON NAMES AMONG SINHALSAE..NOW AFTER INVASION OF HINDI MOVIES SINLAESE GIVE NORTH INDIAN NAMES TO THEIR CHILDREN….TOMORROW MAHAWANSA WILL THEY SINHALEASE MIGRATED TO NORTH INDIA….

  38. ….ONCE THERE WAS AN ARTICLE IN TH EX-AIR LANKA INFLIGHT MAGAZINE WRITTEN BY A SINHALA PROFESSOR..HE ASKED WHY BUDDHAS STATUES IN SRI LANKA RESEMBLE GREEK FACE……ANSWER IS SIMPLE ALL THESE WERE MADE BY GREEK SCULPTURES SO THE DAMS AND BUILDINGS IN ANCIEST SRI LANKA…..GREEK WAS SO ADVANCED IN THOSE DAYS…BUT MAHAWAMSA TELL ANOTHER STORY…AND PEOPLE BELIEVE THIS

  39. ..SINHALA LANGUAGE NEVER EXISTED BEFORE 10 th CENTURY…..all sinhala ancient chronicals were written in pali..because there was no sinhala language then….like sihalease got their avurudhu..from tamil april new year …a language named sinhalese was created…which has got more Tamil words……IN SINHALA …WHEN THEY SAY ..MAN IS COMING….AND DOG IS COMING …THEY USE SAME WORDS….AFTER ALL MAN IS DIFFERENT FROM ANIMAL…IN TAMILS THESE TWO ARE CLEARLY DISTINGUSED..BECAUSE OF ITS RICHNESS…..EVEN TODAY IN SINHALA THERE ARE NO SINHALA NAMES FOR MONTHS..THEY USE ENGLISH WORDS….ONLY A DEVELOP LANGUAGE HAS GOT QUALITY…..THERE ARE TAMILS LITERATURES WRITTEN 2,000 YEARS AGO IN TAMIL….EVEN AMONG THESE TAMIL BUDDHIST LITERATURES AVAILABLE…..Eg.manimaekallai was written by a Tamil buddhist monk…..check any european language dictionary it is clearly stated that the words PARAYA….and KATTAMARAN are Tamil words…probably these words have taken to Europe by Romanns and Greek….

    • ayesh

      Hey Do you know the meaning of word the ‘avurudu’ ? Word Avuru means sun in Sinhalese AND word idda means straight.
      So use your small brain and figure out why ancient Sinhalese call new year Avurudda.
      Avuru + idda = Avurudda.

      BTW, Tamils seems to have new years in every month ! Don’t they celebrate another new year in January ?

      There are written evidence to prove Sinhala as a language existed at least from 3rd Century BC. There are tons of inscriptions belong to Sinhalese language abundant not only in the NORHT but also in the SOUTH.

      BUT funny thing is earliest written TAMIL language belong to the 11 th Century AD. And even that was an edict issued for the south Indian traders by non other than great SINHALESE king Parakramabahu !

      So cry baby cry, history have proven the nakedness of all these (poor) eelam boys !

      And for the swarthiness of Tamils. I know those white tigers may be upset with this BUT don’t blame me. This was said by almost all the Portuguese & Dutch who came to our country. Read their books and educate our self before barking here. For a starter, read the book written by Philip Baldaeus, where he explicitly say TAMILS are SWATHIER than SINHALESE.

  40. Asoka P

    Well Koopu, Dilshan, Ayesh and Leela, you all say there is so much common history, as well as exchange of language constructs and names. So, why is it hard for the Tamils and Sinhala to coexist ?

    May be it is “my xxx is bigger than yours” syndrome!! Are you all men, and none a woman??

    • ayesh

      There should be not problem with coexisting.
      BUT do we dont have to deny our History our Culture to do that.
      The problem with this EElam dudes is that most of them were born in western world and heavily brainwashed with this Tamil Homeland myth. And they dont even know what they talk !!!

      As for the color, I really dont care whether we are black or white or red.
      I was merely poiting out that historically people were able to distinguish tamils with Sinhalese due to their skin color differences.

    • Dilshan

      Because BOTH are lieing about their origin? BOTH are Eelam People. Both are Eelam Natives. Singheelam people are/were converted to Alien Buddhism and Tamileelam people are/were converted to some kind of Hinduism. Still most Tamileelam people still follow their own Saivasim.

      ONLY Religions and Indigenous are the difference. Singheelam language was created to separate us even more.

      Otherwise we are coexisting in all over Eelam RIGHT NOW. And we can coexist forever with happy bearings. That is for sure, because we are all Eelam People.
