 Dear Minister,

 Racist attack on Tamil Women, Culture and Traditions by a Sinhalese Canadian.

 First, I would like to express my sincere thanks to you and your party, and appreciate your presence and support to the Tamil community in Toronto recently, in their endeavours to be part and parcel of Canadian life, contribute to the social and economic development and be lawful citizens of Canada. Canada has always been well known for its values and principles of democracy, freedom, equality and multiculturalism. Canada and many countries around the world are enjoying the enormous contribution from the vibrancy of Tamils in many spheres of life.

 But I am perturbed to read the racist, despicable and degrading  letter by Asoka Weerasinghe to you and published as news worthy item by Sri Lankan newspaper lankaweb.com. This is not only attack on Tamil women, but to all women, and to all cultures and traditions of the world, including the singhalese.

 These are the attitudes of majority Singhalese and successive singhala governments that have caused the division within both communities in Sri Lanka beyond repair. The oppression, discrimination, subjugation and state terrorism inflicted on the tamil people over the last 60 years have caused a major brain drain, that Sri Lanka is now down with the dogs.

 Asoka’s views, comments and understanding of the plight of the Sri Lankan economy, its development and contribution to world social standing even after 60 years of independence, when compared to some third world countries, is disgraceful as his comments.

 As a non Sri Lankan Tamil, and have never been to Sri Lanka, I would like to emphasis to the majority of singhalese and to the international community that they should understand by now, that the Tamil resistance will continue and would never rest until a peaceful, democratic, political solution to Tamil Eelam is achieved, so that the Tamils can live in peace and dignity, and prosper as a Nation.

 Please also understand that the LTTE was not formed as a social club, give peace a chance was the motto then, but  it never came. They were forced into by successive governments and chauvinistic singhalese people like Asoka, to defend and protect our land, our women, our culture, our heritage so that they could live in peace and dignity, when all other peaceful methods failed.

 I didn’t understand myself until I was explained with a series on questions..

When a 16 or 17 year old boy, on suspicion, is tied to a tree, and his mother and sisters were raped by the army in front of him, what would he become? If a lady held at gun point, and her husband, father, and brothers all lined up and shot dead instantaneously in front of her, would she become sister Teressa? What about those in the village who witnessed these episodes,  When high achievers are denied entry to pursue studies, what would they do?

 After 60 years of struggle, and more that 200,000 killed, the international community now has the responsibility and obligation to the Tamil people of Eelam, for a permanent political solution.

 As you are aware, The President of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapakse, his brothers and the armed forces have been breaking International Humanitarian Laws and Human Rights Laws and committing mega crimes of genocide, and crimes against humanity. The UN Expert Panel has call for evidence on alleged violations in Sri Lanka, and is in progress.

 The Sri Lankan military bombed and massacred as many as 40,000 Tamils, all cornered into a lagoon with all doors closed to the international media, and killed women, children, elderly, disabled and surrendered freedom fighters.

 The GoSL now realizes that the stiffest war of all, an unwinnable war, is a war with a united Tamil Diaspora, a political and economic war, and with international pressure, the Tamils will not rest until a permanent political solution for an independent Tamil Eelam is realized, agreed by the Tamils and endorsed and signed by the International Community.

 They are tinkering the conscience of the IC to correct its past mistakes, with their responsibility and obligation to the Tamil people, because they were part of the last 60 years of Tamil sufferings, they were part of our history, they watched the war, before, during and the aftermath of the war, and still pondering, and now realized that they have been hoodwinked and fooled by the GoSL.

 We believe respected politicians around the world would raise and continue to voice against state terrorism and protect minorities and human rights.

 Thank you again for your support of the Tamils of Eelam.

 Yours sincerely

Manicka Vasagar

    Forgive Asoka
    It was a mistake he wrote . I am sure Jesus will heal him Jesus will change him to be a better soul
    It is time for people to pray for one another

    Pray for Peace Love is God it is not too late

    Do not fight , Do not hate , do not insult

    I am shocked big times to see the hatred against the tamils . It is unimaginable in this newspaper lankaweb

    what is the point? honestly I do not see such hatred for colored people in USA where I live .
    Look why so much hatred in Lanka between Tamils and sinhalese

    Only If you pray to Jesus instead of idols you will develop compassion on others

    Surrender to Jesus

    Jesus will cure you
    Jesus will cure Asoka
    Jesus will make you and people like Asoka a better soul

    Mani
    In my humble opinion as a tamil to you is to leave the eelam card please
    it is not necessary
    I have met sinhaelese who are extremly kind people who value friendship

    Do you know so many tamils were tortured and killed by LTTE ( Rutheless)
    some examples are Mr Amirthaligam( fomer opposition Leader), Yogeswaran MP
    My understanding was in mid 80s hundreds of Telo members and EPRLF folks were killed
    They were put in alive in Burning Tires
    I dislike violence

    It is time for Tamil and SInhala moderates to come for a peaceful settlement
    It is time for Rajabekasa to resolve the Tamil issue . He can do it easily due to his majority

    I noticed there are articles published in lankaweb are very much hatred against tamils which are very very unnecessary . People write things to get 1 minute fame

    Mani

    Also I will be truly happy If people read bible all over Lanka so they will know the love Jesus taught
    When you have the holy spirit on you you will be good
    Budhists, Hindus and Muslims should start reading bible . In my opinion that is the only way for everlasting peace
    When you pray to Idols you are bringing demons . Give up idol worship

    Manicka Vasagar:

    Why not have Tamil Elam in Toronto or Tamil Nadu?

    If you try to have Tamil Elam in Sri Lanka again, you will end up in hell. Remember the fate of Velupillai Prabakaran and his clan?

    Even the name of your objective (Tamil Elam) is racist. Pathetic!

    Asoka is certainly not a racist. You see him as such becuase you are a racist suffering from the Tamil (racist) Elam dream.

    For your information, we are not afraid of Tamil resistence. We beat them 19 times in history, we shall beat them again.

  4. Samson Says:

    Jimmy,

    Most Sri Lankans (Sinhala and Tamil) worship God Shiva. Why don’t you start worshiping God Shiva for a start?

    There is no need to nail people on crosses, is there? That is violence. Your symbol is violence – a bleeding man nailed to a cross. Horrible! Look at God Shiva, Buddha or Hindu Godesses. No violence there. You will clam down.

  5. chand Says:

    Jimmy,

    Why God can’t allow Benny to UK? Don’t say B/S that God has a purpose for that.

    [Benny Hinn won’t be allowed to swindle the faithful with his fraudulent “miracle shows” in Britain, since he was refused entry:

    Benny Hinn, from Texas, who draws large crowds to his Pentecostal revival rallies, was turned back at Stansted airport under new rules on visiting ministers of religion.

    Many thousands of Pentecostal Christians travelled from across Britain and Europe and booked long weekend breaks in the capital’s hotels for his mission at the ExCeL exhibition centre in Docklands, East London, which had been due to begin on Thursday night.

    They were left disappointed after Border Agency officials turned him back when he landed with his private jet because he had failed to obtain a “letter of sponsorship” from a church.

    Instead, Mr Hinn flew on to Paris and tried to enter Britain at Luton airport but was again turned back. He was on his way back to France last night.]

    Manicka Vasagar,
    You sure sound like you have never stepped into SL or know any truth about Tamils in SL. You are pathetically repeating the misinformation poured by the LTTE fraud to have Tamil ealam FRAUD. Tamils in SL are much previlidged and doing much better than Tamils in India. All these discrimination, bla bla are excuses to gain sympathy to extend Tamil Nadu into SL.
    For your information the whole Ealam project is based on FRAUD and nothing but FRAUD ,and is NOT justifiable. Get your facts correct you IDIOT.

  7. cassandra Says:

    Manicka Vasagar,
    If you are, as you say, ‘a non Sri Lankan Tamil, and have never been to Sri Lanka,’ I suggest you don’t try to write about things you know little about. You sound like another gullible man who has fallen hook, line and sinker for the propaganda of your Sri Lankan Tamil friends.

  8. jimmy Says:

    Samson
    I was a hindu before back in Srilanka when I was young. Every one in my family are hindus now except myself
    I love reading bible and worship Jesus all the time. I consider my self as born again

    You know Christianity talks about love
    Love your neighbour as your self . It does not encourage violence
    Jesus died in the cross for all of us who are sinners .

    Chintha
    I am sorry to hear about this That is too bad. I recently went to his meeting in Lindenwald NJ It was awesome

    I hope you both will not mind if I ask you to read bible
    You could Say
    Jesus please come in to my heart Lead me the way you want me to lead you will see the difference

    Please forgive me if I hurt your religious feelings

  9. jimmy Says:

    sorry it was ment to Chand not Chintha

  10. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    Manicka Vasagar says he is not a Sri Lankan born Tamil, and has never been to Sri Lanka. There are millions of such tamils all over the world, who are clueless about Sri Lanka. So Manicka has been really lucky to be at the right place at the right time, to meet the right person to tutor him on the going ons in Sri Lanka. He appears to have got the perfect script to studyand make a good presentation, based on the data forwarded to him. He is now an authoritative contractual presenter of the Tamil Eelaam Pipe Dream. As long as he is bestowed Tiger Terrorists Eelaam Funds, very generously, sky is the limit for his highly contageous diarrhea of untruths, despicable lies, concoctions, imaginary whimsical hair raising incidents. and ofcourse unsolicited vague advice. From his presentation, it appears, he has contacted the most virulent virus, for which there is no cure, and this is a Terminal illness, for which he will have to be in the vicinity of the Nandikadal lagoon, for possible recuperation.

    You also advice with emphasis to the majority of the Singhales and the ..International community, that they should understand by now that the TAMIL RESISTANCE WILL CONTINUE AND WILL NEVER REST etc. By your Gods Grace, may your PIPE DREAM fall from the skies like Hossannas from Heaven. Be in fervant prayer, and gradually lead your congregation to the vicinity of the Nandikadal Lagoon. You will be blessed. It would be a very peaceful vicinity to celebrate your Resistance.

    YOU say that the Sri Lankan Military bombed and massacred as many as 40,000 in the Nandikadal Lagoon area
    BankiMoon who was a self confessed authority on these killings, said that 7000 were killed in the Nandikadal area. Your figure is 40,000 HUMAN BEINGS being killed. Your antagonistic brain did not prompt you to do an analytical assessment, of 40,000 dead bodies lying on the ground, and what area would it have taken to arrange them in rows for a body count. You say the doors were closed for the media. Then, who do you think went and conted the 40,000 bodies. It cant be the Army, because you will immediately say, that their count would not be acceptable. So did the LTTE FELLOW who gave you the script to speak on, go and count the bodies. So tell me, finally what happened to the 40,000 dead bodies ? Who saw the all ? The Diaspora LTTE TAMIL Sympathisers are a lot of DESPICABLE DAMNING LIARS, and mind you, that is their Forte. They can concoct a lie on their palm, in a split second.

    This is the kind of lies the LTTE TERRORIST TAMIL DIASPORA has been propogating throughout the world, and all those who believed them were idiots, who did not have the gift of understanding.

    Your author who gave you all the details for the above article, apparently was shy to talk of Velupulles SEXAPADES. Thee to four tamil girls for a night. It was that Psychopath that had tamil girls for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You talk only on the script that is given to you.

    Finally let me tell you, that you are also a contributor, to the misery of the SRI LANKA TAMILS, because you are handsomely paid for foul mouthing, against the citizens of a beautiful Democratic Country.

    Someone above has cautioned you vis-a-vis… “” IF YOU TRY TO HAVE TAMIL EELAM AGAIN IN SRI LANKA, YOU WILL END UP IN HELL. “”” Take Care Manicka you are walking in a mine field.

  11. M.S.MUdali Says:

    This Manic guy is a real Sri lankan born ass and try to fool around here. I am a Tamil and prepared to meet any LTTE goons in Canada. These LTTE morons or people like Asoka never come for any public debate on the issues.

    LTTE is a brain child of REAGONOMICS and nothing to do with TAMIL or SINHALA. If Sri lankans are still listen to this type of racist morons, there is no end to the problems we are facing at home.

    These “FOREIGN” born or “FOREIGN” Tamils never send a single dollar to the suffereing Tamil people in Sri lanka. I hope this Manic is part of the DOLLAR TIGERS of Canada. The dollar tigers suck the Canadian resources in the name of TAMIL and make a good living without working.

    Is this guy try to establish here that LTTE was a “GANDHI” and never killed any Tamil people? First he must admit the policyless LTTE was a murdering gang. He must come out with the numbers of the Tamils who were kidnapped, tortured, raped and killed by LTTE!

    If this man has real interest on the Tamil people of Sri Lanka, I am prepared to organize a public meeting to air his views first to the Tamil people who have contacts and relatives in Sri lanka. Asoka too can participate without invitation. I will provide security if he has any security problems.

    Jimmy must tell why Catholic Church and Christian churches are still parading with LTTE. Can Jimmy explain why Fr. Emmanuel praised the LTTE as the DIVINE SOLDIERS OF CHRIST?

  12. TERRENCE DE SILVA Says:

    DEAR Manicka Vasagar & JIMMY,

    WHERE WERE YOU GUYS ALL THESE 30 YEARS DURING THIS HEARTBREAKING BLOODY CONFLICT WHEN MY COUNTRYMEN WERE KILLING EACH OTHER MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN. IN AIRPLANES, TRAINS, BUSSES, BUSS-STAND AND ELIMINATING TOP PUBLIC FIGURES & INTELLECTUALS, (REGARDLESS OF THEIR ETHNICITY – OR COUNTRY) FORMER INDIAN PRESIDENT RAJIV GHANDI – IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE.

    THE OTHER MINORITY COMMUNITIES (I BELONG TO ONE OF THESE – INCLUDING A LARGER MAJORITY MUSLIM) ARE HARDLY EVER MENTIONED BY ANYBODY – WHAT A SHAME!.

    I LIVE WITH MY NEIGHBOURS OF ALL COMMUNITIES AND RELIGIOUS FAITHS AND WE GET ON WITH HARMONY – SO IF YOU WHO LIVE AT THE NETHER WORLD COULD ONLY HELP BY US ALL BY NOT COMMENTING ON SOME COUNTRY YOU HAVE NEVER VISITED OR LIVED IN OR HAVE LITTLE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT – IT WOULD DO US A BIG HELP TO ALL SRI LANKANS WHO NOW LIVE WITHOUT THE FEAR OF TERRORIST BOMBS BLOWING UP IN PUBLIC TRANSPORTS ETC.. AND HAVING THE FEAR OF NOT KNOWING WHETHER THEIR BREAD-WINNERS OR CHILDREN WOULD RETURN HOME AT THE END OF THE DAY.

    SO PLEASE KEEP YOUR LOP-SIDED OPINIONS TO YOURSELF – NOW THAT THE SRI LANKAN GOVERNMENT HAS ACHIEVED THIS LONG AWAITED PEACE BY MILITARY VICTORY OVER STARK BLOODY TERRORISM.

    PLEASE RFRAIN FROM TELLING US NOW (AFTER 30 YEARS OF BLOODY CONFLICT )HOW TO GO ABOUT IT.

  13. jimmy Says:

    Folks
    first chill out . Important thing is not to attack any one personally but have a logical discussion
    Every one is entilted for their opinion even people do not necessarily agree
    I am not going to write any more on this

    (a) I care less for politics or politician or anything .
    I am just a normal human being respect people without thinking their race or color of the skin
    I respect every one as human beings and I love my job
    It is my strong belief when you are born again ( that means you need to surrender everything to Lord, ask forgiveness of sins by thoughts and deeds)
    Ms Mudali
    I have no idea what you are talking about Fr Emanuel or Cathlic church. never heard of
    when you pray to Idols even Mary you bring Demons to your self and you can not think logically
    All we need is Jesus and be faithful in everything we do .

    Terrence
    you need to chill out . I never liked LTTE or violence activities . I do not like State Terrorisim either
    God, SO many innocent lives in Lanka were killed , tortured by Terrorists and State
    The only way for peace is for people to think right and live in harmony
    when you worship Idols you may not think correctly
    All you need to do is pray like below

    Jesus
    come in to my heart give me new heart . I sinned by thought forgive me. change me , I love you Lord
    do it every day before you sleep and you will see yourself as new person
    Budha or Krishna or Shiva or Alla or any other God will never give you peace Only Jesus can give peace to you and also to the Country

    I am a christian who believe every word in bible and I know that is the truth
    We have seen so many bad things happened in the world
    millions of Tutsis were killed by Hutus which is unimaginable to even think it was due to hatred
    worst worst thing is just to hate some one because of their ethnicity

    sometimes I think when people worship idols they can not think properly
    demons will control your mind when you worship idols

  14. Fran Diaz Says:

    Sad to hear Tamil ‘resistance’ may continue because to some Tamil minds that is the only way to hold the Tamil community together, get attention and help re jobs, money, from political personalities abroad as well as from religious personalities & bodies. To gain attention, some Tamils float out ghastly stories about the Sri Lanka Army ! SL Army Press Unit should challenge the the author of these horrendous stories about the Army and sue them for defamation of the Army. the Army can make a tidy sum in law suites !

    Consider the following facts :

    (1) Tamil problems start in Tamil Nadu with its 5 Million Tamil Dalits (Untouchables) there. What is the Tamil community abroad doing about that ? This is said with good intent – I gain no pleasure from it.
    (2) Sri Lankan Tamils are the best off in any Tamil community around the world. By some Tamil leaders asking for a separate state for Tamils only in Lanka, they have spoilt their own chances by breaking trust. The ltte made matters unbearable for Tamils. The Lanka Army liberated Tamils in clutches of the ltte.
    (3) The best course of action for Tamil people now is to stick to the truth about everything, and they can succeed quite well. They will be trusted again as a community.
    (4) To Jimmy: Jesus said “the Kingdom of Heaven is within You”. This Heaven within us is reached through Meditation & Right Action. The Hindu higher teachings of RAJ YOGA states just that, as does Buddhism. Changing religion out of fear or for favors is like changing the ‘pillow for the headache’.

    “All you seek is within You” & “Truth shall set You Free” are two good quotations for modern times.

  15. helaya Says:

    Jimmy,
    Are you a moron? The Born Agin cult is believing that all the dead people will rise some day and Modern Chriatianity based on the premis of Jesus ressurrected after the crusifixion. You do not have any knowledge about Sri Lanka. Please shut-up and keep your openion to yourself.

  16. sanath sirisena Says:

    It appears to become a religious war as per comments of Jimmy, In that I find there is no requirement to bring religious matters in to this kind of problem prevailing in Sri lanka. There is no need to bring the importance of any religion and to force anyone to (like Jimmy) plead to change ones beliefs insulting other religions. This is not acceptable among educated respectable SOCIETY. Its upto the individuals to find the best religion for themselves. In my case, I respect all the religions in the world although I am a Buddist. In that Budda preached respect all live in harmony. Mind you, Buddism is not a religoin but pure phillosophy. It provides and highlights the right and wrongs. Its upto all of us to decide. thats all.

    Secondly mr. Menika with due respect, I like to brig to your kind notice that our beloved country will never allow the bloody terrorist LTTE to come to power again forever and please forget about dreaming . The curse is over. Lets talk peace aroumd the world. Remember THOSE WHO LIVE BY SWORD DIE BY SWORD

  17. jimmy Says:

    Sanath
    I truly apologize for my comments then

    I also respect the way you handled

  18. Sam Perera Says:

    It is very interesting to see how the religious fundamentalist maggots try to turn discussions towards their own beliefs. In that aspect, I see no difference between the terrorists, communists, and the fundamentalists.

  19. jimmy Says:

    Sam
    you are nuts please ck your head sir

    do not ever make fun on people and catogorize them

    bye

  20. M.S.MUdali Says:

    LTTE is under the control of Catholic/Christian Churches. That is why now the LTTe spread stories that “Prabhakaran is alive and LTTE rise(born) again”.

    Sinhalese always trust these CHURCHES. That is why they are still silent over the public engagement of the Churches with LTTE.

  21. TERRENCE DE SILVA Says:

    DEAR JIMMY, REF YOUR COMMENTS: “Terrence
    you need to chill out . I never liked LTTE or violence activities . I do not like State Terrorisim either
    God, SO many innocent lives in Lanka were killed , tortured by Terrorists and State
    The only way for peace is for people to think right and live in harmony when you worship Idols you may not think correctly.”
    REFERENCE MY COMMENTS JIMMY WHATEVER GAVE YOU THE NOTION THAT “I AM A IDOL WORSHIPPER.” I AM NOT!..ALL I CAN IS THAT JIMMY BOY YOU ARE IN THE WRONG FORUM AND FAR OFF THE TARGET DISCUSSIONS. ALL YOUR PERSPECTIVES ARE TOTALLY OUT OF WHACK! ORGINATE AN ARTICLE ON “THE NEED TO BE BORN AGAIN.” BUT DO NOT USE OTHER PEOPLE’S ARTICLES TO BASE & EXPOSE YOUR RELIGIOUS CONCEPTS – AS YOU ARE DOING MORE HARM THAN GOOD TO ALL OTHER “BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS.”

  22. Sam Perera Says:

    Jimmy the religious fundamentalist terrorist,

    Irrespective of the religion you are in, you are delusional. Please check yourself to a mental institution right now before you turn yourself to another LTTE suicide bomber.

  23. jimmy Says:

    Sam

    (a) Making fun on others is not good. You express your opinion without hurting others
    Express your ideas instead of saying you are that and this
    This is the Lankan mentality . Grow up

    Terrance
    (b) I wonder sometimes how people can not treat each other with love and compassion
    I am honest and kind . Example if any one talk bad about sinhalese I defend the sinhalese
    I will break up the friendship if they continuosly talk like that
    I know There are thousand and ten thousands of wonderful people
    I have great friends among sinhalese who are very kind
    Sometimes I wonder it is because of my faith in Jesus who teach love compassion
    and forgiveness

    I honestly feel there is so much hatred towards Tamils
    The other day I saw an article by Asoka Weerasinghe . It is totally unacceptable
    what do they achieve by attacking valuestamils . It is not right
    You can do it by not attacking the race
    If people write articles in a developed Country They can be sued big times . They will be taken to cleaners
    You can say anything but not against a race . IN USA you can not say or write bad about Spanih or blacks publickly unless you are ready to loose everything

    I am not going to write any more because I do not get any respect here
    have a great day bye

  24. sanath sirisena Says:

    Hi jimmy, I really appreciate your acceptance. You are a gentleman.

    My dear folks, the entire world belong to all of us. There should be no restrictons to anyone of us to live aywhere in this universe except criminnals.

  25. Chintha Says:

    Manicka,
    FYI, Tamil racist extremist in SL , pretend to be victims to outside world and oppress, harass, discriminate , chase ,kill all non Tamils from areas Tamils are a majority where as most Tamils live in the South without problem . When they are stopped they call it oppression. They vedio tape what they do and claim they are done by army. Once such a vdio was broadcasted in BBC and the supposed to be Tamil victims were wailing in Sinhalese. They haraseed , oppressed ,discriminated and chased all Sinhalese students from Jaffna University where as Tamil students enjoy any university in SL. Asoka is not a racist. He is a great person who stands against unjust lies, misinformation , made up stories against SL and Sinhalese fraudulantly created by the terrorist group to achieve thier objectives. Here after, Tamils will have equal oppertunity and rights(as they allways had) but will not be allowed to oppress,discriminate, harass , kill and mayham other communitites to gain thier Tamil Nadu extension project.

  26. M.S.MUdali Says:

    Asoka is a proven racist and not a person of any civilized thinking. When Tamil “boat” comes he barks as a CANADIAN but he keeps silence when Pakis and muslims tried to blast TORONTO. Where was he standing? Lankaweb too silent about Paki terrorism all over the world.

    If people really concerned about PEACE, they cannot keep silent against any sort of violence.

  27. TERRENCE DE SILVA Says:

    DEAR JIMMY, YOU STILL DON’T GET IT DO YOU – YOU ARE WAY OUT OF YOUR DEPTH IN THIS FORUM – YOU ARE A ONE TRACK MINDED RELIGIOUS BIGGOT – IF YOU CANNOT EVEN PROVIDE AN ANSWER TO SIMPLE QUESTIONS PUT TO YOU – IT IS VERY EVIDENT – THAT ENGLISH IS NOT YOUR MOTHER TONGUE OR YOUR FIRST PREFERRED LANGUAGE & YOUR COMPREHENSION OF THE SAME IS ALMOST NIL- GLAD THAT YOU HAVE FINALLY DAWNED ON YOU THAT YOUR INPUTS INTO THIS COLUMNS – HAS NOT RECEIVED MUCH RESPECT BY OTHER CONTRIBUTORS.

    BUT YOU CAN REJOICE IN THE FACT THAT JESUS LOVES YOU AND HE LOVES US ALL, “RED AND YELLOW BLACK & WHITE THEY ARE JEWELS IN HIS SIGHT”. SO STAY OUT OF WRITTEN OR VERBAL SKIRMISHES – AS YOU WILL SURELY DROWN.

  28. Naram Says:

    Manic,

    You have not been to Sri Lanka, and so if you have an interest in learning about the distant country yourparentsmayhave come from do not read LTTE story alon, read those of others too. Many scholars, John Davy, LS Devaja, Colvyn R de Silva, Paul Pieris, Asoka Bandarage, KM de Silva, Michael ROberts have added to the literature understand Sri Lanka’s culture and the problems faced with the entry of colonial powers and those left behind with the closure of the Empire.

    Canada being a commonwealth deficientin manpower in comparison with the vast naural wealth has opened itsdoors toy. Enjour freedom and try to help thecountry of your parents origin – no doubt there may have been some rapes and murders – but you can say the same about any so called developed West too – in the times of wars, Fascist excesses, Papal or Episcopal inquisitions, Witch hunting – a procedure concocted to keep women in their place, expulsion of anyone questioning authority to remote parts of Australia etc.
