I called my Friend in Jaffna
Posted on April 5th, 2012

By Charles S.Perera

I called my friend in Jaffna. He is disappointed with the government of which he had much hope to draw the Tamils out of Communal concentration to a social and political integration with the Sinhala.

He is sure if the government could have an active Office in Jaffna where the people are informed of the governments on going welfare activities, and contact the Tamil people directly, more and more people will turn away from the TNA and turn towards the Government.

Apparently, the Government is not making a genuine effort to propagate information to the Tamil people. The small SLFP office is manned by a young man not quite conversant with the political history of Sri Lanka to make an effort to change at least to a certain extent the Tamil mentality. He says even the UNP has no office in Jaffna though they talk much of political integration of Communities.

My friend says that there is a tremendous amount of government sponsored development-taking place in Jaffna and he says every day he sees some thing new, but there is a government information vacuum that keeps people from appreciating the government’s positive efforts to develop Jaffna. As a result, the government fails to take the credit for its projects,

In this vacuum where the government is absent the TNA comes with sentimental issues concerning the language, Tamil Homeland, devolution of political power which really does not interest most of the people in Jaffna but tend to go along with the TNA in the absence of counter propaganda by the government. The Jaffna Tamils he says still have the mind set of fear of the terrorism which tends them to follow blindly the TNA which hasn’t the peoples complete approval.

According to my friend, there is a good opportunity for the government to win over the people of Jaffna, if the SLFP or UNFA could make their presence felt in Jaffna, without waiting until the next election to come to Jaffna for a membership drive. The government does not seem to understand the necessity to have an active office which disseminates information about the activities under taken by the government to develop Jaffna.

My Friend says that even he would be willing to run a UPFA propaganda office voluntarily if the government is interested in such a project.

It appears that there is a lethargy on the part of the government not going all out to vindicate its rights organizing propaganda activity in the north and east. Instead it merely restricts its activities to speech making in the south. It is action that is necessary not speech making.

I give below extracts from two e-mails sent to me by my friend who is a Tamil fed up with unnecessary importance that is being given to the TNA by the West and the expatriate Tamils.

” its really strange that those western countries are still crying for the long eliminated tiger terrorists. What is happening to America and UK? I think they are using Sri Lanka as a diverting issue from their middle eastern debacle . Above all they cant digest that Sri Lanka was able to successfully end terrorism despite the last minute intervention by Benard Kouchner, David Milliband and Hillary.Clinton. We have some trouble to counter western moves, but we will win . The President and Sri Lanka had been taking correct and positive action for the defense of the country and the protection of its people.

I wanted to tell you again that Jaffna SLFP and UNP branches are not existing.. There are some skeleton staff but no serious branch office with active organizers.

We have to narrow down the gap between south and north. This has to be done.

At least SLFP could appoint a very good leader from any community for Jaffna district as a party organizer.

We have to show the world that people of North are with the government of Sri Lanka, not with USA, UK or any other country.

We have to explain and give proper information to the people of North about the development projects and their progress. Already the people are aware of this but they lack a proper government leadership.

They can appoint any body but never any body from ex militant groups.”

My friend says in another e-mail, ” Jaffna is now taking the right path to development, but few of the media and cheap politicians are trying to paint a bad picture trying to make a monster of the Sri Lanka Government, but everybody knows the truth.

Actually without any exaggeration a great miracle is taking place in the North. Just in three years entire picture is changing so fast.

many roads are improving and every day new buildings are coming up, every thing seems to be very positive . only one thing disturbing the tranquility is loudspeakers from the top of the temples alas you cant imagine how loud it is .

Ideology behind this cult is controlling people. Creates fear and sucking them. These are all money making temples. It is therefore no surprise that the followers of Jaffna Saiva or Jaffna Christians become TNA supporters or terrorist supporters. Its a slavish cult mentality .

They almost forget to think on their own. Just reading Uthayan Thinakural or Valampuri is sickening they are all talking nonsense .

Because of this joyless cult mentality the younger generation seems to be lost.

Now here in Jaffna any young boy could earn at least fifteen thousand with a decent job. But the youths are ready to do hard labour in the Middle East for the same amount . Many youths told me money is not their main concern, but it is to get rid of far too many “culture guardians” in Jaffna, a byproduct of terror culture.

For more than a year I never saw any birth day parties or social get togethers. It is only temple ritualistic religious functions and praying”¦”¦. praying with full of fear.

Love and fear are the very opposite emotions. our religion become fear oriented. Temple owners and Brahmins know how to create fear. It is not a surprise to know that Prabakaran’s familly has two medium size temples. Valvettythurai Sivan temple and Mariyamman Temple.

\

I am sorry this is some what sensitive matter. Already my relatives accuse me that I am becoming a non believer. Actually I am a believer of omnipresent divinity. If I search then I have to admit that divinity is not omnipresent.

Fear creates monsters like Prabha or his by products TNA. Any how their time is over they knew that thegame is over. North is becoming cosmopolitan like Colombo. “

If the terrorist proxi TNA, the most unpatriotic elements of the Tamil Community and the pro terrorist Tamil expatriate Tamils think that they are the accept ed leaders of the Tamil Community in Sri Lanka , they are mistaken, because my friend is a Tamil from Jaffna and he hates the TNA and the expatriate Tamil Diaspora which has done nothing to improve the condition of the Tamil people after the elimination of the terrorists that were the e of their suffering. “

    Good article Charles S.Perera. The mistake the Govt: is depending too much on D. Devananda. Keep him “as it is” now time to open SLFP and UNP branches and appoint active organizers to narrow down the gap between south and north. Also encourage more Sinhalese people to go back to North and start their business etc.

    ALL people in Jaffna are followers of Jaffna Saiva or Jaffna Christians ( NO Buddhists and NO Muslims) and therefore ALL of them become TNA supporters!!

    Uthayan Thinakural and Valampuri are bloody RACIST newspapers and THAT IS ALL Jaffna people want to read!!

    The allegation govt is not informing the people of Jaffna the good that they do is RUBBISH.

    Jaffna people DON’T WANT to hear it.

    There are MODERATE newspapers, TV, radio channels (e.g. SLRC, SLBC, etc.) but these are EXTREMELY UNPOPULAR in the north. They ONLY read racist Uthayan Thinakural or Valampuri and watch RACIST Sakthi TV, etc.

    It is not that information is NOT available but the people in the north DON’T want those information.

    Anyway for the record Jaffna Municipal Council is UPFA controlled already. The ONLY thing in the north that is controlled by a non-racist political party. That too thanks to UNTIRING effort of EPDP activists.

  3. Lorenzo Says:

    Dhane,

    Agree with Sinhalese and Muslim people should SETTLE DOWN in Jaffna.

    But totally disagree on Douglas Devananda. If not for him, there is NO control of Jaffna politics whatsoever. Jaffna people REJECTED SLFP and UNP since 1947.

    Now the Jaffna MC is under UPFA control thanks SOLELY to Douglas Devananda.

    If DD and his boys are not around Jaffna will be TOTALLY TNA.

    How can one expect otherwise when they ONLY read Uthayan Thinakural or Valampuri and watch only Sakti TV, etc. and read only Tamilnet for Tamil news in the internet?

  4. Dham Says:

    Lorenzo,
    SLFP leader ?
    “They can appoint any body but never any body from ex militant groups.”

    Why can’t they appoint ? DD. This is the whole problem.

    In fact I did not publish, but my friend too told me exactly the same. We must send Ben Silva there with a loud speaker to nullify these cults. He is using his loud speaker to attack innocent Buddhists who seek extenction by there choice !

    Tamil cults in jaffna and Muslim cults in Colombo useing load speakers. Must slinence these loud speakers too !

    This is the problem. Development and open economy should be complemented by proper law and order.

  5. jayt Says:

    Charles, first of all and immediately, sl needs sophisticated intelligent agency to verify sweet sweet patriotic articles and commets makers to see if there spies installed by others. Wet sending threatening messages in last few weeks to hijack sinhalese to get them what they want. What you tell here is same as what they tell; what they tell is if you do not go by what we tell , then we set up terrorist again.
    How about reconcile with palastinian and. Reconcile with al qaeda members.

  6. jayt Says:

    There are thousand of al qaedas from India , arabias and africa ready to reconcile with American and british and there are millions Muslim in India ready join in.
    Do the western spies want bloody global war with sinhalese? No, they want sinhalese to become they obedient servants otherwise they have to pack up and go from whole region and Arabia and Africa too. That will be guaranteed.

  7. herman Says:

    Charles you’re one of very Good SL Patriot but unfortunately you’re not good in understanding the jaffna tamils, Lorenzo is spot on and it reminded me of the 3 monkeys – refuses to see, refuses to hear & refuses to talk the good done by the govt since integration with the other communties is not in their racialist minds. The Govt must get rid of the middlemen (DD & co), ban some of the racialist media and get the other races into jaffna without any delay. Doing more for the jaffna infrastructures and improving the economy must be done only after the abovesaid.

  8. Lorenzo Says:

    Dham,

    Was DD there in 1947, 1952, 1956, 1960, 1965, 1970, 1977 for Jaffna Tamils to elect ONLY Tamil racist parties?

    NO.

    Don’t put the cart before the ass.

    The NEED for DD arose AFTER DECADES of Tamil people voting for Tamil racist parties.

    Without DD even the few votes SLFP/UPFA/UNP get will be LOST.

    Don’t trust everything your Tamil friends say. LOOK DEEPER and see where MOST (almost ALL) Tamils in Jaffna VOTE.

    In a democracy like SL what matter is the VOTING PATTERN not just verbal BS.

    DD and the boys are NOT killing, etc. people TODAY. It is TNA that is killing EPDP. Didn’t you read it how 3 TNA (LTTE) cadres KILLED a EPDP cadre in Trincomlaee?

    Thank god for the EPDP. They are our front line FEELERS, RECEPTORS into LTTE activity. Otherwise we would NEVER know.

    The Tamil community that vote for TAMIL RACIST parties since 1947 tells us EPDP is bad!!

    Of course!!

    They should be bad to TNA voters for them to be good for SL!

  9. Lorenzo Says:

    The NEED for DD/EPDP arose AFTER DECADES of Tamil people voting for Tamil racist parties.

    We must understand this first.

    Tamil people started to vote for Tamil racist parties since 1947. EPDP was formed only in 1987!

    For 30 years no EPDP. But Tamils complained Sinhala colonization, Sinhala only, Sinhala governments, Sinhala army, Buddhism state religion, etc. for 30 years and voted for racist parties who were WORSE than EPDP.

    They will ALWAYS COMPLAIN. We must do what is good for SL.

    ITAK burnt Sinhala people, houses and put tar on Sinhala letters in 1958 and TULF threatened to swim in the blood of the Sinhalese and wear shoes made out of Sinhala people’s skins.

    EPDP never DID this.

    Who is worse?

    In Jaffna we have to make a choice – EPDP or TNA. SLFP and UNP were NEVER CHOICES!!

    T Maheswaran and his wife won UNP seats by praising LTTE. SLFP could not win a seat until EPDP joined in.

    What TNA voting Tamil racist want now is to get rid of EPDP and then the whole thing is for TNA.

  10. Lorenzo Says:

    Herman,

    I agree with you word to word EXCEPT for DD & Co.

    They are NEEDED not by this government but by ALL governments – JR, Premadasa, Wijetunga, CBK, Ranil. All of them cannot be wrong.

    EPDP is like CWC – a bit violent, corrupt but LESS violent than TNA (LTTE). LESS racist than the options. More importantly CO-OPERATIVE with the govt.

  11. Charles Says:

    My friend comments:

    Charles thank you very much for the well written article . After Alfred Duraippah Mr. Devananda is a good young leader. I always support him.. How can we forget his democratic contribution all these years? Specially in those difficult days . I can never forget he was a victim of tiger brutality. I don’t know why Mr Lorenzo thinks that I’am against to Mr. Devananda?

    When ever I say that I would like to see National Political Parties in Jaffna does not mean that I don’t like EPDP.
    EPDP has some limitations. It has its agenda as any other political parties. EPDP and SLFP and UNPare diffrent political parties. we have to move forward . I am sure Devananda would like to facilitate National Parties to come forward. And establish themselves in Jaffna, he is not a narrow minded politician.

    communication gap between north and south exists. This is why Mr. Lorenzo forgets that Alfrend Duraippa was able to get elected as an MP for Jaffna and another person V.A.Kandia was also elected on comunist party ticket.

    Mr. Lorenzo de sensitizing bad words and hate mongering never help any body.

  12. Lorenzo Says:

    To Charles’s Friend,

    I didn’t say YOU are against DD. No right thinking man/woman will be against DD.

    I fully agree NATIONAL MULTI-ETHNIC parties MUST win MOST seats in Jaffna.

    That will NEVER happen as long as Tamils are the majority in Jaffna.

    Tamil must be made a minority in the northern province as in the east. ONLY then they will vote for UNP or remotely, SLFP.

    Jaffna MC is a small part of Jaffna district. It is now with EPDP/UPFA as in early 1970s.

    But the Jaffna district ALWAYS voted for Tamil racist political parties.

    e.g. ACTC, ITAK, TULF, TNA since 1947.

    1994 was an exceptions where DD/EPDP won 7 or 9 seats because rightly the election was held only in SLA controlled areas, especially in Kytes!!

    EPDP was a pillar of strength for the government for 7 years.

    2000 was another war marred election that was not very helpful to “T” racist parties.

    If DD was like Alfred, Neelan, Pon Sivapalan, Loganathan, etc. he would have been killed LONG AGO. But this man stood up to LTTE violence and met violence with violence.

  13. Lorenzo Says:

    Alfrend Duraippa and a VERY few others winning one or two seats does not change the OVERALL Tamil racist parties winning MOST seats.

    Does this happen in south?

    NO!

    In the south Sinhala racist parties lose even the deposit money!

    e.g. Sinhala Urummiaya

    Sinhale Maha Sammatha Bumiputhra Party

    No seats!

    The exception was in 2000, Sinhala Urummaiya won 1 seat for 1 year.

    Just like a non racist winning a seat in Jaffna!

    In the south, a racist party winning a seat is the exception. In the north a non-racist party winning is the exception!

  14. herman Says:

    Lorenzo you’re absolutley right about EPDP’s role since JR but let me remind you of a chinese idiom “Riding on the Back of a Tiger and Finding It Hard To Get Off”.

    I like to believe that MR is very different from all the other leaders mentioned by you, but if he is going to make a real positive difference to the scene in Jaffna for the better, he must be wise and severe this honeymoon with DD & co. Otherwise, chances are, he will not be riding the BACK OF THE TIGER but will end up inside the tiger’s belly. The situation in Jaffna calls for dramatic changes in policies and unless the govt acts immediately to reform, the status quo cannot continue to MR’s favour or for the country – in the long term !

  15. Dham Says:

    Fully agree with Herman. Remember DD’s party name has “EELAAM” in it. He too is pressing for 13++++. Thus MR is indeed riding on a tigers back. If he is so good make him SLFP and stop thuggery,fear mongering,dissapearence and do everything within the law. If you want arrest people and put in the jail for 15 years do so within the law.
    Must build a Tamil, Sinhala, Muslim or whatever race based partyless political contest. TNA should be banned , so be EPDP. Why can’t this be done ?

  16. Christie Says:

    The majority of the island has to be educated with the recent history of the island nation and the world. In particular the British -Indian Empire and its effects on the Indian colonies and actions of Indian colonial parasites.

    Indians in the island nation including all Tamils are Indian colonial parasites who arrived in the island under the British guns as Sepoys and Coolies. Most of them who arrived early but since 1792 settled in the north. It is a myth that there are different breeds of Tamils.

  17. Raj Says:

    Wonderful! Charles. I am sure someone will send this to the President’s attention. As I understand there is a SLFP organiser there, a sinhala guy who contested, but he does not live there.

    All international harbours in the nation have Buddhist depictions reaching out to the sea. Includes Colombo, Hambantota and Trincomalee harbours. Why not in Jaffna? There is nothing special about Jaffna.

    Buddhist Stupa to become ‘cultural landmark’ of Jaffna harbour

    [TamilNet, Thursday, 05 April 2012, 21:30 GMT]

    A massive Buddhist Stupa that is being constructed at the Beach Road of Jaffna harbour by the occupying Sinhala military will be the new ‘cultural landmark’ of Jaffna city for vessels coming towards its harbour. The Stupa with pre-fabricated parts and statues, brought from the South, is being built day and night by the Sinhala soldiers. The Stupa is built in the locality of a Saivite Amman temple, between Jaffna Fort and Kurunakar, known as Aluppaanthi, meaning the wharf of the harbour. Many more Buddhist Stupas are hurriedly constructed by the SL military and one of them with extensive residential facilities is going to be just in front of the Jaffna Railway Station. During the liberation war, colonial Sri Lanka constructed a huge Buddha statue overlooking Trincomalee to give a Sinhala Buddhist cultural image to the world-renowned harbour of Eezham Tamils in the East.

    EPDP is not TIGERS.

    1. They are the ONLY Tamil group that stood up to Tigers! TMVP FOLLOWED EPDP. Don’t think LTTE/TNA is all out and will not wake up.

    2. They are our front line within the Tamil community. 150 LTTE terrorists landed in SL last month from TN. Who confronted them? EPDP! The SACRIFICE of the EPDP activist brought the matter to attention that lead to the unearthing of the massive LTTE racket operating from TN. Did any peace loving Tamil come forward to tell us that 150 LTTE terrorists infiltrated into SL? NO!

    3. EPDP are our CENSORS, feelers, receptors within the Tamil community.

    4. Even Charles’s Tamil friend (seems to be a anti-Tamil nationalist) is NOT against EPDP.

    5. EPDP was the ONLY Tamil group that OPENLY canvassed against the LTTE rump abroad.

    6. The president recently praised DD once again in his assistance in making a swimming pool at a Jaffna school.

    7. Today EPDP is WELL integrated into our secret services, military and politics. If you are a Jaffna Tamil you will know it is IMPOSSIBLE from outsiders to INFILTRATE the Jaffna Tamil community. It must be penetrated by a Tamil group living within the society that is capable of looking after its own security.

    Mark my word, the president and future leaders will NOT be foolish enough to disregard EPDP (or a similar group) from the government.

    They ALL (ALL leaders since 1987) cannot be wrong!

    The word Elam is the Tamil word for “Hela”. It is not racist. Nothing wrong with DD asking for 13+ when the president himself PROMISES 13+! First the president should say NO to 13+ and DD will follow.

    EPDP has its problems but ONLY the DD model works with Tamils in the north. Without DD ALL effective Tamil support will be lost (AS IT WAS BEFORE 1987) in the north.

    What LTTE agents try now is to demonize EPDP and get it dismantled so LTTE can restart again.

    With responsibility I can tell you it will NOT happen! :))

    No point wasting time over it.

  22. Fran Diaz Says:

    Sri Lanka has too much of the Indian model re unit of division of country and politics. India is divided into various states along ethnic & language basis, which makes each state there rather watertight and insular, especially Tamil Nadu which has remained untouched culturally even through the Akbar, Asoka Empires. Why should Sri Lanka follow this model and allow Jaffna to be a Tamil only type of state ? The Indian model is totally unsuitable for Sri Lanka. Each Indian state is several times the size of the whole of Lanka, and therefore each state in India is, more or less, a self sustainable unit, unlike each Province in Sri Lanka. All the Provinces in Sri Lanka are interdependent. Therefore, all the Provinces should be multicultural in Sri Lanka.

    Jaffna politicians, except for a few, have always attempted to keep that area ethnically mono Tamil for purposes of CONTROL. Its a Caste based habit, the upper Castes controlling the lower ones. That is why the ltte was formed in the first place, to fight off the absolute control by the upper Castes. The Caste System is based on Myth, and has now outlived its use. Also, Tamil Nadu politicos get to have a strong hold on Jaffna if Jaffna is mono ethnic.

    Time to Modernise Jaffna :

    * Open sections of the Jaffna library for other languages & films etc.

    * Make all those areas multi-ethnic. Especially encourage business people from the other areas of Sri Lanka to settle down in Jaffna, create jobs, education, etc.

    * Ban ethnic based political parties in Sri Lanka.
    * Make the District the unit of governance.
    * Deport all illegal migrants.
    * Remove the 13-A.

  23. Fran Diaz Says:

    In the end, if Jaffna is truly multi-cultural, the ordinary folks of Jaffna will be the happiest ! They will learn to smile again and enjoy life.

  24. Christie Says:

    Nagadeepa and Naga Wihara were in the Jaffana Penisular (Yapa Patuna) long before the Indian colonial parasites built their Hindu places of worship.
    Back in 1958 during the days of Sirima the Indian colonial parasites killed and chased the Sinhalese who were in Yapa Patuna.

    These high caste Indian colonial parasites were Tamil Sepoys and Coolies who came with British and Madras Regiments and then the Vellar administrators from the Malabar coast.

    No Indian low caste of any Indian races are allowed to leave their villages now or then. So there are no Indian low who arrived from the Indian sub continent.

    The writers loving friend would not consider him to be of similar social standing and considers him as low caste as all Tamils and other Indian do.

    The story is the same, Yasmin Sooka or Navi Pillai consider Africans as low caste. It is the same in Fiji, Mayritius or in Malasia.

  25. Lorenzo Says:

    You won’t find a better SL patriot FROM the Jaffna Vellalar community than humble Lorenzo. Pity he is not your personal friend. Why? Because Lorenzo supports ANY ethical, unethical,moral, immoral, legal, illegal, criminal, violent, peaceful, etc. means to protect the UNITARY status of SL.

    The SL Tamil community is the BIGGEST enemy of the SL Tamil community. ALL must understand this.

    e.g. Child soldiers, suicide bombers, COMPLETE destruction of Tamil culture/dignity, etc. by Tamil racist politics while Tamil people didn’t criticise it.

    So protect UNITARY SL, SL Tamils will be automatically protected. Not the other way round.

    NEVER devolve power to Tamils to look after Tamils because one is the BIGGEST enemy of the other!

    A very difficult thing to understand unless you are within the community CAPABLE of an outside-inside view.

  26. Christie Says:

    Why call the friend, pay a visit and go for a walk and sight seeing and make few more friends.

    I bet.

  27. Charles Says:

    My friend makes another comment

    i think we have to move forward rather than spending words for doing post mortem. Our past is full of mistrust. how long we are going to chew the same chewing gum?
    I m sad and tired to see some comments. i beg all to move forward. actually this is what happening for common man.Few elites still live in the past.
    Artificial hostility among people is created by some politicians as well as some media people

  28. Lorenzo Says:

    “Artificial hostility among people is created by some politicians as well as some media people”

    AND continued to create by MOST Tamil voters in Jaffna by voting for Tamil racist political parties (TNA).

    SL is moving forward but Jaffna voters are moving BACKWARDS. Lets face this reality. No point denying it.

    “Artificial hostility among people is created by some politicians as well as some media people…………”

    AND continue to create by MOST Tamil voters in Jaffna by voting for Tamil racist political parties (TNA).

  30. Dham Says:

    If you belive in western style voting system, it is the responsibiliy of Sinhala politicians to get the Tamil votes. You cannot force the voter or blame the voter.
    The problem is there is no proper opposition to TNA.
    I am fully against western style democracy. But if we are stuck with it, only way to win votes is bringing in prosparity carrot and using of the threat of sitck at the elections.

    In my view there should have been a military governement to North until the TNA is eliminated. No DD, no terrorists moving around , just a proper military government to develop the areas. It is already too late. MR did all wrong.

  31. Christie Says:

    Definitely it is time to move forward with a good understanding of what is it all about.

    I have had and still have good friends in Jaffna, those who sit on both sides of an aisle in a bus. One thing I learned is do not trust an Indian colonial parasite whether in Jaffna, Colombo, Suva, Singapore, Kualalumpur or London.

    You can trust only people who treat you as equal, how can you trust people who treat you a low caste in their mind?

    What we need is unity among the majority and then the minority even they are privileged will follow.

    Indian colonial parasites divided the Sinhalese majority so as to preserve their privileges.

    They claim they are discriminated when they occupy more land, earn more, educated more and has access to powerful in the world.

  32. Dham Says:

    Christie,
    Without chanting like a mantra, just name few parasites. Are you one too – trying to create trouble ?

  33. Christie Says:

    All Sepoys and Coolies who went with the British to British dominions are Indian colonial parasites.

    The most celebrated one comes from KwaZulu Natal of South Africa, Mohandas Karamchan Gandhi or Mahathma Gandhi.

    One of his statues in Batticlo has lost its head. I am sue you can work out Indian colonial parasites in Ceylon. Most of them are in North, East, Colombo and the up Country.

  34. Voice123 Says:

    @Christie, check your research. I was under the impression that most of the Indian diaspora, especially in the developing countries, were of low caste origin. For example, in Fiji most are Hindi speaking low caste background, many were deported from Australian sugarcane plantations when the Whites instituted the White Australia Policy. From my personal observation Fiji Indians in the West love to grovel that they are “better” than India Indians because they are more “westernised” and therefore able to fit in with western people. Ditto the South African Indians. South African Indians are a variety of sources, Hindi and Gujarati speaking northerners as well as some Tamils and Malayalees etc but mostly low caste. They were taken by the British to South Africa to do manual labouring work at low wages which the Africans werent keen to do. Kenya and East Africa, mostly Gujarati, Sindhi (Pakistani) etc low caste to build the railway, the British later encouraged them to go into retail and transport business so as to open up Africa for further exploitation. Many of them got rich in Africa, many of them were deported by Idi Amin or left Africa for greener pastures particularly in the UK. Note that none of them wanted to return to India. Somebody told me that South African Indians dont feel secure any more in South Africa because the black majority are in power but they wont return to India because it is so dirty and smelly and poor and caste conscious so the “Eelam Tamils” who congress freely with the South African Indians have promised them a place in their future “Eelam”, that is why so many South African Indians support Eelam. In Malaysia and Singapore vast majority are Indian Tamils of low caste origin with a sprinkling of Malayalees, Jaffna Tamils and northern Indian trading people. More recently Indians who go to Dubai, Middle East etc are also labourers, with a few professionals, but most are low caste from rural areas where they are not allowed to progress by High castes who burn their houses down, rape their women etc routinely. Many of them do return to India usually because of little choice. In the West Indies, Jamaica, Trinidad and Guyana in particular there are large numbers of Indians, Bhojpuri and Hindi low caste but also South Indians like Tamils, sometiimes disparagingly referred to as “coolies” by the black West Indians because they feel they were brought in by the white plantation owners to undermine the freed slaves by doing all the dirty work. Many of these people have now “lost caste” but if they return to India they will be treated as low caste, no matter how educated or wealthy they now are. That is why few of the Indian diaspora return to India. Many would find a future “Eelam” much more attractive especially if they are promised no caste discrimination.

    So Christie, most are low caste origin. Where do you find the high castes among them? Mahatma Gandhi was an exception but he was not a permanent settler. He went to Africa to organise the Indian people and win rights for them, contrary to public opinion which says he fought for all races. He is said to have made some very derogatory things about the Africans treating them like low caste, while trying to curry favour with the low caste Indian settlers in South Africa.
