Tamil self-determination? Destination Tamil Nadu (Tamil Country)

  • Supposedly, terror was swept away recently in Heladiva (Sri Lanka) but it was worse than terror, an attempted undercover invasion of the Sovereign Island to form a second Tamil Nadu and the extinction of the Hela/Sinhela Nation.
  • Sri Lanka is a misnomer, Heladiva (island of Helas/Sinhelas) is the authentic name as a country’s name must be the nation’s name to identify its national sovereign ownership, which is inviolable as the basic human right of a nation of people ONLY in their national motherland.
  • Tamil self determination or Tamil national claim is valid and justifiable ONLY in Tamil Nadu as the indigenous land of the 70 million Tamil nation, within the Indian subcontinent. Tamils and other minorities are INCLUSIVE of the Hela Nation like in other host countries and not separate entities.
  • The ONLY right for Tamil self determination in Heladiva is if Tamils are indigenous of Heladiva i.e. if there is no existence of Tamil Nadu, which is not the case.
  • Even within a sovereign country, if a minority community are the majority even in a whole province or district; they do not qualify for separate national self determination or even devolution based on ethnicity. It violates the country’s national sovereignty and threatens insidious invasion, like it was attempted in Heladiva (SL).
  • Due to anti-national pseudo Hela/Sinhela leaders of the past, the Hela Nation suffered a vicious de-nationalization program causing a confused mindset, giving illegal alien-national rights to non indigenous Tamils, which led to invasive Tamil terror.
  • To defend Heladiva (SL) and to stop the global Tamil invasive campaign  forever “”…” our nation and leaders MUST state the rational self-evident Tamil Nadu fact immediately. It is the absence of this fact which nurtures the bogus Tamil self determination and Western collusion.
  • Any fear of upsetting the Indian subcontinent in exposing the Tamil Nadu fact is naƒÆ’†’¯ve and servile and at the peril of our country and nation.
  • Any fostering of Tamil national self determination for ethnic Tamils of Tamil Nadu national origin in Heladiva, tantamount to invasion. This dangerous distortion will trigger settler minorities in all other host countries too, to demand self determination, a fantastic nonsense which can create universal chaos to the already chaotic world.

    Sri Lankan Government must take the lead in telling this fact to the world and also, we must clearly point out what we have already done and going to do to make the Tamils feel at home. In this National Statement, we must clearly indicate that there would be no devolution of power or any privilege leading to a separate or federal state for Tamils.

    This HELA heroes did not mention anything about the invaders from Europe or their agents in Sri Lanka.

    Hela is the mother of all South Indian languages. In Tamil it is known as ELU.

    I identify few Tamil guys in this HELA team. Because their names sound like Tamil ones. Janaka Alahapperuma, and Sapumal Watteaarachchige better do a research on your roots.

    Fear mongering about Tamil Nadu or India is a dead issue. But USAID, a political arm of the US Foreign Department is the real threat as I feared. They now send Tamils to learn land issues in East Timor which was the goal of the US backed LTTE and catholi Church. That is why the UNP headed by a Malayalee Ranil who is a Christian too, carved out part of Lanka to LTTE.

    Supporting USA and crying for Hela Diva is a laughing matter for me!

    Though I do have little interest responding to a comment made by someone claimed to be a Tamil, I do have to write the following comment for the Sinhala people and their supporters visiting this website. The linguistic difference in the way the same word used in Sinhala and Tamil is clearly evident from “Hela” and Elu”. We have developed means to apply global linguistic differentiation techniques and ethnic attribute filtering (I meant ways of using sound/letter formation of words and their meanings to find the historical origin of words) that have revealed a lot more about Sinhala, Tamil, Hindu etc. Though the words “Hela” and Elu” are very close to the name of people at a more primitive stage of evolution who later came to identify by the word Sinhala, the most appropriate
    Ethnic label is ‘Sinhala”, which truly reflect the Sinhala characteristics. Unfortunately I cannot reveal that original pre-historic ethnic identity for some reason. But the modern adaptation of the word “Hela” is a derivative of the original word “Sinhala” by musicians (essentially people overwhelmed by the gigantic nature of vocabulary who combine words to create rhythms that hardly mean anything real – a slightly different version to what the insane people do. When I say insane it is not necessarily derogatory, but a reflection of overflowing knowledge that takes away the correct usage of language, which could happen to anybody) who are very good at word mutilation as found in many modern songs written to create the lyrics.

    We have found that every bit of knowledge that lie around us and every individual human has come from a single origin based on some strange concepts in comparison to widely popular speculative English imaginations, that truly reflect “natural way”. Obviously it never came from a group of people who have greater difficulties in managing sounds and their multiple combinations that has driven them to take refuge in a restricted and exclusive style that has not made much headway for many millennia. Since it is a common practice to perceive ethnic identity based on someone’s name, I want to clear the air by saying that I loathed the Sinhala people, in fact those who were around me in my office and the Colombo society claiming to be Sinhala when I decided to leave Sinhale’ nearly two decades ago as they were totally opposite to me in their way of life. Being grown up immersed in English system that many consider mistakenly as Sinhala, I decided to become and English as I thought that I could be one of them. But within three months living among native English, I realised that those I called Sinhala, in fact most of them had European names and social habits, were pathetic imposters who are more closer to English than anyone else by marriage and adoption. Realising myself that I was different because I was coming form the location that can be proved as the heart of ancient Sinhala civilisation, I have changed a lot to become what I am today. I hope my story would help some of the prominent self-proclaimed Sinhala people to realise that much of their contributions to Sinhalaness are in fact redressing of Englishness by lack of proper understanding between these world-apart civilisations that also has some strange common origin where I hold back giving any further details.

    As English users, we remain English subjects as long as we type in English letters to communicate our thoughts no matter who we are. Having said that I found English as the worst language to tell my thoughts, thanks to some degree to a prominent Tamil who carried one of my small research work to the world in the typical cultural spirit (I mean as the expert who knows all without and iota of understanding a bit – In this case I know exactly what I said and what he said to others who come from almost all the ethnic backgrounds to make that judgement.). What I said many years back has come home through my son who has to learn that as part of his chosen profession, but with a horrible twist. So I suggest those who read whatever written in English to be vary of this phenomenon. This problem let me to do a bit of hunting on other language structures and found Sinhala as the only language that has some essential ingredients to match my check list. Since there is a bit of a claim to Sinhala words, I like to tell that it is the only language that does not use breathing to support pronunciation (in other words use of breathing to pronounce words is a struggle to do it while breathing to meet natural needs. The ease with the sound “A” is used in its four forms in Sinhala at every position of the word from the front to the end is amazingly a unique Sinhala style not found in any other language.

    Contnued…

    Please refer to the previous comment for the first part.

    I wrote above paragraphs to lay my hand on the claim “I identify few Tamil guys in this HELA team. Because their names sound like Tamil ones. Janaka Alahapperuma, and Sapumal Watteaarachchige better do a research on your roots.” It is ridiculous to claim that names sounds like Tamil without doing the background check of individuals of habitual grounds. As ardent Sinhalist, I doubt that any of these people could have a Tamil origin considering the fact that such Sinhalised people have remained anti-Sinhala and pro-Tamil in their conduct. In fact, we can offer a check list to identify such people. You can never be an ardent claimant to any nationality unless you have the core of your person built on body parts belonging to that community. This may sound bit strange as the reasons for my expression are not provided to substantiate my claim due to some other reasons. Tamils claim of a history going back to five thousand years if the best possible scenario is acknowledged. Chinese do claim the same extent of history. But Hindus claim to have more than six thousand years of history. We find that these are close to what we have deduced from means not yet divulged to outsiders. Now, let me ask the biggest question. Who were our ancestors before the six thousand years of history. The answer is fascinating. In contrast, Buddhist version of history essentially is a version of history built around the time missionaries from subcontinent depicting them selves as the creators of Sinhala civilisation. They refer to inhabitants of the island as devils. But if we come back to our time, we know that they had the ability to absorb the advance thinking contained in Buddhism. What is unfortunate is that Hindus have called them Devils nearly six thousand years back according to Hindu history, basically a truck load of tantrums in all forms and shape of venting hatred and jealousy towards the inhabitants of this island. There are also archaeological finds that trivialise this Buddhist claim. As I see, Hindu converts to Buddhism have proven that by changing religion we never change our traits. Instead of given any further details, I suggest that it was a single civilisation that had the whole humanity under single rule by a group of humans I prefer to call Ancient Sinhala civilisation. This origin has left many common words and life style practices common to many ethnically divided groups today. But it does not mean that words came from one ethnic group to other as suggested by the comment just by sharing.

    The Rajarata, that claimed as Tamil homeland following the lie propagated by Americans who developed the concept of Homeland to hide the stark truth that they are outsiders to where they live, was originally the administrative capital of the Ancient Sinhala kings starting with Manu Raja. We have found the original practice of counting years from his time among exclusive Sinhala members of the caste dedicated to astronomy/astrology who know nothing else but only Sinhala way of thinking that refers to more than 30,000 years of time. The size and the remaining historical evidence suggests that it was a massive bureaucracy. Anyone who claimed ownership to this part of land, Tamil or other wise, deserve death penalty, and is naturally received for those who go to such a low level to claim ownership as proven by the history. Some of these events and how they occur have a true natural meaning, but can not be told for some reasons.

    The suggested Tamilness of the surnames is a serious issue of poor and misguided speculation. Hinduism is the main cause of the collapse of that ancient civilisation, that came at a time humans became almost attached to the words than to do a background check to find the reality. This provided an opportunity to abuse the words in combinations that made people to believe the opposite of what was essentially the original intent of these words. As it stands twisting, turning, misrepresentation, overuse, misuse, speculation of the words, which are the whole mark of Hinduism has taken its toll on believers who would do anything while preaching anything. The conduct of late VP was a clear example of preaching bana and acting like a barbarian that defines the evil of Hindu faith. In fact this suggestion borders on this cultural practice found commonly in the subcontinent. I am aware that DBS Jayaraj did the same speculation on Fonseka to undermine his ethnic identity, hopefully with some success, as found during his later conduct.

    Let me tell the most important part at the end of my comment. It is ridiculous to suggest that first name has any ethnic value as it has become a habit of buying names from other ethnic groups. However, Sinhala people carry the same surname unchanged from one generation to the next where Tamils do have a constantly changing surname where fathers name becomes child’s surname according to some practices. Most of the Tamil names appearing in Lanka have Sinhala influence to a greater extent and comparing such names is absurd. But true Tamil names can be found in Tamil Nadu for those interested to find the unique blend in their names. The surname “Alahapperuma” could be a very old Sinhala word derived by a combination of values attributed to an elder of this clan. I would break it down to Ala+ha+peruma for my analysis. Peruma could be a derivative of the word Keruma (cleverer one). Ala is yam. Ha relates to Ala haranna (yam digging). Though there are many among us who think that we landed on earth yesterday, we do have a very long and sometimes very sad and painful history faced by our ancestors to bring up our lives to what we enjoy today. The verification of this interpenetration requires the bearer to explain the presence of his strong appetite for yams. In fact I do have a strong appetite for local yams that forced my father to seek many unusual yams in the wild even when I was very young. The other word “Watteaarachchige” does not require any argument to explain its Sinhalaness. If not, even I could insulted by such comments. Sadly the fundamental logics of word formations in both Sinhala and Tamil remain the same subject to the extent of alphabetical order and strength in absolute terms though varying to a degree in how they are repeated inside words.

    There are some surnames in the list that are borrowed from other ethnic identities. A few are actually names, not surnames per se. I hope those who take ownership of Sinhalaness would understand the necessity to give up alien additions and to seek their original identity to stop becoming a bit of joke without knowing. Being pure animals before a certain point in time, we have moved away from the wild life and it is my belief that every human should seek to be true Sinhala person, a person who loves life and living longer, the universal belief, as it is the only way to go forward. Those who are stuck in old times and have lost the drive to change would disappear in time to come. By the way I must admit that I could be the only one, if not one of the very few, who can offer an unquestionable meaning to words “Sinhala”, “Tamil”, “Hindu”, “Thai” and “English”. For me, the interpretation of the word “Sinhala” by Buddhists made it a joke to believe in their religion.

    New Comment:

    Any individual or any group whether ethnic, political or other, if engages in unprovoked attacks on other humans, represents a pure evil face driven by animal instincts. Such animals should never be let to flourish at free will. On this basis, a world without Hindus, Tamils, Portuguese, Dutch, English and/or any other group who engaged or would engage in the future in such unprovoked attacks to destroy Sinhala lives, is a far better world of futre than to put up with them at any cost. In contrast, Sinhala people have proven that they do not belong to this class of evil by their own conduct to this date from what they have done to accommodate these evil doers. However, there must be a change of attitude as noted by the Hela group to envision a far better future for our children free of such evil.

  6. M.S.MUdali Says:

    One thing is clear. Priyantha has no knowledge of Tamil or Sinhala. He struggled to explain the Tamilness in those names.

    He simply gives a meaning to ALAHAPERUMA as primitive yam digger.

    In Tamil Alaha =handsome; Peruma =Great soul or great person.

    PonnamPeruma =Ponna +peruma = Ponna =Golden; Peruma =as mentioned above.

    Bandaranayake’s ancestry traced to a Tamil Hindu Neelaperumal who was a Temple labourer. His niece Jasmine Gunaratne explained the matter in a book. In Tamil no letter for “B” sound. Panadaram still a temple servant but their duties during the KING time was TAX COLLECTION.

    The treasurey Chief of a Tamil hindu king was known as PERIYA (Chief) Pandaram!

    Even the collection box in Hindu temples are called Pandara Petti!

    Priyantha tried to SINHALISE everything while Vijaya’s history starts with 700 Pandia TAMIL women. How can the Sinhalese tell “NO CONNECTION WITH TAMILS”?

    In my opinion Sinhala is a unique language of Sri Lanka and it is not spoken in India anywhere. No records of any kind excavated to prove that matter.

    But Malayalam (kerala) is very much connected to Sinhala than Tamil. Malayala people and Sinhala people have lot of matters in common.

    Even we do DNA on Sinhalese 99.9 people cannot go to North India. Some will endup in Lisbon but others cannot go beyond South India.

    Can Priyantha explain why Buddhists and Hindus (Sinhalese and Tamils) celebrate NEW YEAR on the same day at the same time? Are the Buddhists following some EVIL culture as Priyantha claims?

    I always like to see the common things beween two groups in order to discard many myths created by racially motivated ENGLISH educated Sri lankans in the past.

  7. Priyantha Abeywickrama Says:

    Thank you for the reply. I am not interested to talk about my Tamil knowledge, but I doubt your assertion that I know nothing about Sinhala. In year nine, I had the audacity to challenge my erudite teacher, mature age (in fifties) Sinhala first class graduate from Peradeniya, to correct his Sinhala grammar, which turned me to a symbol of serious conflict between teachers as to the subjects I should learn in year ten in one of the reputed colleges in the South.

    It is ridiculous to suggest that I said ALAHAPERUMA means “primitive yam digger”. Instead what I said is that it meant “Clever man to dig yams” at a time that was a great act that kept us alive, a reference to a very long time ago (I wish you could learn about the culture in Melanesia that remained unchanged where the culture is woven around yams). In modern terms, it may be like labelling a person as an Olympic champion. Your meaning of words when combined do not match the uniqueness of the surname in Sinhala tradition as there is not a single surname to suggest such a combination of meanings. In Sinhala, person-specific characteristics such as handsome, beautiful etc. are associated with the “name” where “surname” is a lasting family glory that make people proud of their surname. Apparently it was considered a grave crime to change the surname, sometimes made to demonise the descendants of someone who had committed inhuman acts, according to ancient Sinhala rules, mostly implemented by culturally insensitive kings of semi-Tamil origin during the post-Buddha era. For that matter, surnames such as Rajapaksa, Wickramasinghe, X+singhe, Gunarathne, Gunawardena and Jayawardena lack the authentic ancient Sinhalaness. The fashion of modernising names/surnames have left many to loose their originality.

    Based on your Tamil meaning of the word “Peruma” (which could be Perumal when Tamilised) it seems that it is the same word as “Keruma”, which has a similar intention in Sinhala. Refer Alaha, I suggest that you tell the meaning of the word “Alaga”, not “Alaha”, a word which will find hard to come out of a Tamil person grown up in an exclusive Tamil community (why not test the pronunciation by yourself with someone). There are other Sinhala words like Alagiyawanna and Alahakone (Alagakone -This also can be claimed as Tamil though it gives an interesting twist when analysed as kone (T)=kena (S)=king (E)). There is a possibility that Alaha could also be a twisted word from Ahala, that leads to Ahala+Keruma becoming Alaha+keruma, a twisted tongue, which also has a relevance as found in other surname patterns. The best man to tell about the surname is the one who use it. You know that occupation left behind many converts to take the names of occupiers. As shown in another article at Lanka web, all the higher officers serving the last king of Sinhale’ used Tamil language to sign their names. Does it make them all Tamils?

    Ref. Bandaranayaka, my argument is proven. He was never a person who had Sinhala convictions, but an opportunist, a human trait originally produced by the advent of Hinduism, who paid the ultimate price in the process. I see that Bandaranayakas are about to disappear into thin air. What about JRJ and his conduct?

    Refer your comment “Priyantha tried to SINHALISE everything while Vijaya’s history starts with 700 Pandia TAMIL women. How can the Sinhalese tell “NO CONNECTION WITH TAMILS”?” I can prove that Vijaya (in fact it should be Vijay – no “a”at the end) clan became extinct with a large number of Sinhala people who became of mixed origin contributing to the collapse of the community we had in the northern part. How it happened is very significant for those canvassing multiculturalism, or more precisely genocide in disguise. I am a firm believer of protecting ethnic identities following Sinhala tradition (which includes the right of Tamils to be Tamil) for reasons beyond this discussion to preserve human life for the eternity. This word Vijay is a Tamil word where the corresponding Sinhala word is Jaya (Victory). If we follow the true style, Vijaya should mean defeat, the opposite of victory. This is an instant where contamination of language is evident. Addition of Vi at the front suggests an interesting way of pronunciation of certain letters by adding another letter at the front or in some cases after the letter. The reason is left to readers to judge.

    Refer “In my opinion Sinhala is a unique language of Sri Lanka…”, this was a discovery I made few years back to call that I found gold while digging for yams. In fact I am going to give up using English in the near future to follow Sinhala. It is much more than what you say. I suggest that it is the mother language of all humanity outside the wild for reasons exclusive to me. I applied a concept of finding the origin of words that proved nearly 80% of Tamil words are from Sinhala based on a by-lingual dictionary produced by both Sinhala and Jaffna Tamil scholars, a claim I rather wish not make. I am reading a research publication in Sinhala now about pre-Buddhist Sinhala history running to few hundred pages. I am still struggling to grab some important things in that which refer to a kind of the same technology that I am associated with from the modern perspective.

    I do have to restraint my self from trying to analyse Kerala community. I watch their cultural programs with greater interest even to find that what some called Traditional Sinhala upcountry drumming and dancing to be in fact are of Kerala origin. Only the drum in the south is unique to Sinhala and it could be the oldest of its type in the world. We all know what the difference between how we use English (We never have a clue of the natural sense of the words) and how the native English speakers use. What would be the situation if someone adopt Sinhala as the replacement language or the language of communication without being part of its early stages of development? I am sometimes bemused by the way words coming out of many ethnic groups living in the subcontinent that sounds more like me speaking English. It is naive to assume that all of us became experts in languages together overnight for that matter.

    I would not use DNA or any other English garbage to make my points. DNA can be produced, changed, modified or destroyed at will by any human according to our work. So it is trivial to suggest that we are a product of DNA, but vice versa is true. You are made of what you eat, they say. But by eating what cattle eat, we may not become cattle, I guess. So there is more to the reality than that. What is more important is how you take ownership of your values and conduct derived from whatever ethnic background to judge your identity. Essentially humanity is made of a third party (Child) who derive its presence from two vastly different forms of humanity (Man and Woman), indeed for a very good reason or sometimes for a very wrong reason. Those who pick the wrong reason disappear into thin air.

    Refer New Year celebration based on the solar cycle, not lunar cycle which I consider inferior from Sinhala point of view, it got nothing to do with Buddhism or Hinduism. It is the oldest known festival that should be the universal day of celebration for humanity. The significance lies in our gaining of ability to break away from the shackles of wild to become what we are today, the real Independence day of Modern humanity. I have already said a lot about following religious beliefs created by individuals and hope that many of you read my comments to say why the world is better off without them.

    You really missed a flying note I made about the time before the Hindu civilisation. The New Year celebration in April based on astrological terms suggests an interesting part of the early human history unique to people who have divided into Sinhala, Hindu and Tamil ethnic groups and other subgroups within our region. As well, Lunar New Year celebrated in February also tells a good story related to Tamil civilisation though not relevant to Sinhala people. You may be in a better position to tell the readers why you believe in Hinduism while being so antagonistic towards Brahmins, a trait going back to pre-Hindu Tamil culture. In fact solar new year celebrations are calculated using Manu years by traditional Sinhala astrologists who are not contaminated by Hindu belief, a belief system that originated in Lanka {I have found that this Hindu word is a derivative of the word Sinhala, which is read as “ila” dropping out some sounds in early Tamil style of pronunciation after Tamilisation as Ila+m, which became la+n(m)+ka by dropping out the first letter, a typical style even found with the word Ravana (I+ravana+m)) and a sort of feminisation according to Hindu tradition}, after a period of worshipping the male genitals. Some of us need a belief to find solace in a world different to nature where no other animal has that bizarre behaviour.

    I never claim that Sinhala is my private property. I hope there are Sinhala people who can add, reject or revise my comments. But I am yet to be proven wrong in all cases I held a firm view on matters in many fields of interest based on extra-ordinary evidence.

  8. M.S.MUdali Says:

    Naming traditions in Sri Lanka is similar to Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Caste names, land names, village names, house names and religious names are used to identify people.

    Ernamkulam Manakkal Sankaran Namboodiripad is known as the first non-congress CM of an Indian state. He made history by electing a communist government.

    Just compare I M R A Irriyagolla or Udugama.

    I have seen the similarity of Kerala names with the Sinhala names mostly in Kandyan provinces.

    Vijay is not a TAMIL word. It is a Sanskrit word. That is a name of the person who is VICTORIOUS. In Tamil and Malayaalam VIJAYAN is a common name.

    Perumal and Peruma are different names and different meaning. Perumal is another name for Hindu God Vishnu!

    In Tamil no letters for g, h, b, kha, gha.

    alaha, alaga, alaka are are of same meaning in Tamil.

    My great great grand mothers name was “ALAHA NAACHCHIYAAR”. Nachchiyaar is a name like Kandiyan KUMARIHAAMI. In the usage Tamils use HA instead of KA.

    ALAGIYA VANNA = Beautiful color. Sanskrit VARNA = Pali = Vanna. In Tamil Varna(m) and Vanna is in usage with the same meaning.

    Peruma cannot be linked with Keruma but in Tamil a word “KOORMA” means clever.

    Check the word URUMAYA (Hela Urumaya). Tamil URIMAI and Sinhala URUMAYA carry the same mening.

    Your TWIST theories has no base at all.

    KONE is a pure Tamil word. KO means KING in Tamil. IlanKO but some writes as ILANGO. IlanKO was the prince who wrote a Tamil BUDDHIST epic SILAPPATHIKAARAM in the 2 AD. In the Tamil tradition that period is called SANGA OR SANGHA period which points the BUDDHIST past of the Tamils.

    Your comments on Bandaranayake is rediculous. He was the man tried to give a place for Sinhala and Tamil. He was killed by the GREEDY monks for British money!

    Further Buddha was a Hindu and not a Catholic.

    Further the Temple of Skanda at Kataragama or Kathirgaamam. Mahavamsa states King Dutu Gamunu prayed at Kataragama before he went to war with ELARA who was mentioned as a CHOLA KING but no historical records of Tamil Chola kings available on ELARA.

    The name ELARA too sounds with (H)ela.

    In my opinion ELARA too was a KING originated from a Royal House in Sri Lanka. That is why King Duta Gemunu asked the people of Rajarata to pay homage to the slained king.

    That tradition, alas, was destroyed by the Church educated Prof. Paranawithana. The people of Rajarata followed the tradition for more than 2000 years and suddenly Paranawithana invented “DAKUNU MALUVA” contains the ashes of Dutugamunu after 1956.

    He claimed some Carbon tests and “established” that ash belong to Dutugemunu. Carbon tests tell the date but not the name of the person.

    If that so, why did the people of Rajarata followed and respected the words of King Dutugemunu for more than 2000 years and believed the tomb belongs to king Elara? Were they fools for 2000 years? That is a racist mockery by English educated Paranwithana to support SINGALA politics.

    This kind of Historical mockeries continue and make the Sri lankans as a laughing stocks in the world!

    Parana withana used the “ENGLISH” garbage to promote pro-Sinhala mockery!

    //the origin of words that proved nearly 80% of Tamil words are from Sinhala based on a by-lingual dictionary produced by both Sinhala and Jaffna Tamil scholars, a claim I rather wish not make.//

    I told the common ancestor to Tamil and Sinhala was ELU or Hela.

    Astrology and Ayrveda are part of Hindu religion in every aspect of Tamil hindus. Your explanation of the NEW YEAR is very shallow and you struggle to accept or explain the fact.

    Again I ask you why Budhhists of Sri lanka and Tamil hindus in India/Sri lanka have the same day as their NEW YEAR?

    I expect you to explain HERATH MUDIYANSELAGE… without any “TWISTS”.

    Thank you for your interesting comments. My comments relate to ongoing work following the original work published in early 90s, essentially fundamental in nature, which has become a prominent subject in many different technical and other professional fields. This approach is independent of any other method available to individuals in the public domain and goes beyond humanity and offer relationships between all forms of life, both, mobile, perm, known and unknown. Since it is about the links between different ethnic groups, I can say that modern humanity in all its manifestations spread all around the world can be proven as coming from a single origin. There is western DNA based work that speculate the same idea. Our approach fits very well to the reality that we, humans are a kind of post-extinct species, just one insignificant form of life out of an infinite number of life, that lives on knowledge, something not available in the nature to the extent of deciding its survival.

    I do not take much interest in western speculative concepts as we see their faults and limitations. Most of the time, they stay very narrowly focused though there are some visual facts that are been abused to justify. As an example, one may argue that a human (pick the known to illustrate) got a round thing with some fibre (head) on the top. There will come another shouting and denying that while claiming the human got two long fat poles (legs). There could be a third person arguing that the human got two long thin poles, not fat (arms). Sorry, I used the satirical way to explain western thinking that I encountered.

    Refer various versions of language used by different groups within the same ethnic identity, there are words that are exclusive to certain groups. Ref. Tamil language, we use Tamil Lexicon as the guide and the following are the relevant meaning from a list of meanings that we find as authoritative though you seem to differ for some reason.
    Peru-mā = n. < id. +. Elephant;
    perumāl = n. < id. [M. peru- māḷ.] 1. Person of eminence
    The meaning “Person of Eminence” is more closer to Keruma, a person who is better at things, used for both as complementary and also in the opposite sense to someone not that good, who pretend to be so. Tone differs.

    I hardly consider Mahawansa, Paranwithana or any other popular concepts to lay down our concept, which uses the natural rules that are beyond our control. Unfortunately, most of our work is outside this discussion and regret to say that I can not engage any further on these topics including New year. If you are really interested, this festival suggests the oldest Ethnic community among the many ethnic groups. In fact, before this formal festival that came to effect when we were an advanced society based on chronological significance with a great deal of knowledge on Astrology, the same celebration was practiced as various sub groups.

    It is my contention that humanity is a natural product, naturally created in the natural environment that functions according to natural way. In fact we have worked out many of the natural sequences controlling the human life. Any imaginative attributes related to humanity is just an indication of poor knowledge in that area. Your knowledge in Tamil could be an excellent source if codified. However, what comes out of my mind is based on many languages and personal exposure to many cultures extending to all corners of the world.

    Unfortunately, we have found some rules governing our conduct and any individual or any particular group contributing to crimes against another person or a group, is a twist of nature that abuse the identity to its own detriment.

    Ref. “HERATH MUDIYANSELAGE”, I suggest that the word Herath synonymous with the word Senerath, a more complete Sinhala word, is used to describe a military position. Mudiyanse is another official designation, which is not found in the southern part of the country, where Mudiyanse is typically used as an insult to a person who keep watching over without taking part in an action or other deed. This may give some idea of what the position was. Since the time of Vijay's enthronement by the most barbaric means that gained legitimacy by associating with the royals in that sense, we had a lot of cross-cultural contamination of Sinhala to the extent that Sinhala itself looks now like English. But the rules and traditions of language during pre-Vijay history gives all essential cleaning tools. I said Vijay was a Tamil because his conduct was very close to the Tamil culture than any other.

    Whatever identity we claim to belong to, when tested for particular ethnic specifications against what an individual could be specified, real person and identity comes very clear as the ethnicity is something more important than any other thing including DNA.

    For those carrying Sinhala names, I want them to be proud of whatever their name as the true meaning based on time is more valuable than gold. Any bad impression that someone may have felt could be the handy work of enemies of our people who used natural rules to divide us. For others who lost it due to misguided belief in fashion or necessity, it is time to pick up the best Sinhala name that fits your thoughts. My apologies to Alahapperuma! Please be proud of your heritage as I see your name missing from the latest list, something I thought would happen when this sort of arguments set in, the very reason for my original comment.

  10. M.S.MUdali Says:

    Herath Mudiyaanselaage…

    In Sinhala “ha” and sa” are same.

    serath(thu) Mudiyaan(selage)

    SERA is still a name for KERALA.

    Mudiyaan is still means ELDER or LEADER in Tamil and Malayaalam.

    That means they are from an ELDER of KERALA origin.

    KANDY is a word used by Kandians and Kerala people only now.

    PERUMAAL is another name for God Vishnu.

    But PERUMAAN is fitting with your meaning.

    Viyaya or Pandias were FOREIGN to S/India and Sri Lanka. Vijaya’s history starts with THAMPA PANNI and Paandiyaa’ history starts with THAMIRA BHARANI. Thampa Panni(Pali) and Taamira Bharani(Sanskrit) are of same meaning.

    I find these COMMON-NESS between Sinhala and Tamil speakers because of the useless divide created by politicians or by the invaders.

    Sinhalese and Tamils have to live in peace in Sri Lanka.

    I have some relatives in A’Pura. All of them are HM (No Head Masters) but Herath Mudiyaanse…. Banda.
