Nullifying Homeland claim: Indian Malabar Tamils have no claim to homeland in Sri Lanka while Ceylon Tamil name was used only after 1911
Posted on April 18th, 2016

Shenali D Waduge

We have arrived at a crucial juncture. It is time to place proper arguments on the table and nullify the lies and distortions. There are some key questions that now need to be asked and answered and the GOSL must be literate enough to handle matters without simply giving in because pressures are affecting their political survival. All Tamils before 1911 were known as Malabar coming from India. These Malabars do not have rights to claim eelam/self-determination/separate homeland in Sri Lanka. The name Ceylon Tamils was coined and used only after 1911 and if so with a history of just 100 years Ceylon Tamils cannot seek eelam/self-determination/separate homeland in Sri Lanka either.

  • Can the Tamils prove they are indigenous to Sri Lanka (are they distinct from the Tamil Nadu Tamils who are Indian nationals) to claim a separate homeland as they are now doing?
  • Can Tamils who find roots to Tamil Nadu and the Tamil gene have right to seek self-determination in Sri Lanka when they have been referred to as Malabar Tamils? Malabar Tamils are today known as Sri Lankan Tamils.
  • Question repeated – Are Sri Lankan Tamils descendants from Indian Tamils?
  • Is it also not correct that Tamils from Tamil Nadu arrived as migrants during numerous South Indian invasions and stayed on in Sri Lanka? Can immigrants claim self-determination simply because they have been living in an area?
  • Why did colonial rulers – Portuguese, Dutch and the British refer to Tamils in Sri Lanka as Malabar Tamils coming from Indian Malabar coast? Why was this name never challenged if the colonials were wrong to refer to Tamils as Malabar Tamils?
  • It was only in 1911 that the British introduced the term ‘Ceylon Tamils’ under the influence of Ponnambalam Arunachalam then Registrar General who compiled the National Census report in 1911. Before 1911 there were no people called Ceylon Tamils.
  • The census of 1881, 1891 and 1901 census is evidence that Tamils were known as Malabars and not Ceylon Tamils. The census of 1824 too mentions Malabars and not Tamils.
  • LTTE – TNA or any other Tamil politician can only refer to themselves as Ceylon Tamils only after the period 1911 because prior to that they were called Malabar Tamils.
  • How can Tamils who can refer to themselves as Ceylon Tamils only after 1911 call for self-determination and demand homelands? Prior to 1911 all Tamils were referred to as Indian Tamils/Malabar Tamils –these entities cannot seek self-determination/homeland in Sri Lanka because their homeland is in Tamil Nadu,
  • There is also need to straighten the distortion that there were no separate kingdoms except kinglets that were under one king (emperor) At no point in time has parts of Sri Lanka functioned independently or separately other than when Portuguese and Dutch were ruling parts of Sri Lanka while the rest came under the Sinhala emperor.
  • There are arguments about disenfranchising Tamils – has it occurred to those peddling this argument that these Tamils were brought in as coolies to work on plantations for the profit of the colonial rulers. Why should countries that did not ask for or need these coolies have to declare them as citizens when the colonials should either take them back to where they brought them from or look after them in their countries because the coolies were brought in for their profits only.
  • Has it occurred to all these human rights activists that Sri Lanka small as it is had to deal with 2 types of incursions – Indian indentured labor and Indian illegal immigrants and these make up the problems that Sri Lanka is constantly having to deal with.
  • Do ‘Sri Lankan Tamils’ have anything of their own created in Sri Lanka? all Tamil artwork – songs, films, dresses, religious statues; and, even traditional food ingredients are imported from Tamil Nadu, India. None is made in Sri Lanka and none was ever made in Sri Lanka” (Dilrook Kannangara)
  • There are no local Tamil inscriptions. All inscriptions found in Sri Lanka that contain Tamil writing are of Indian (mostly Chola – a south Indian dynasty that is now extinct) origin. The only Tamil historical chronicle relating to Sri Lanka is called Yalpana Vaipava Malai. It was written by a South Indian in 1736 under the colonial Dutch patronage.” (Dilrook Kannangara)
  • Dr. Karthigesu Indrapala in his doctoral thesis states with evidence that there were no Tamil settlements in Ceylon before 13th century bringing to zero all bogus claims by LTTE, TNA and LTTE linked historians.
  • We also need to have an answer to a question never answered. If Eelam or separate homeland is given to Tamils will those Tamils living outside of that homeland relocate to the new homeland? They will necessarily have to because they cannot have a homeland to call their own and then live in other parts because the basis of seeking a separate homeland was on the grounds that they were being discriminated outside of their homeland area! Is this question not important for we cannot accept a notion of a separate homeland for Tamils only while Tamils also reserve the right to live in other parts of the country purchasing land, property, residing and working whereas Sinhalese will be denied this right in the new homeland. Therefore, those claiming to want a separate Tamil homeland must first explain why larger number of Tamils are living amongst the Sinhalese if they are discriminated which is the grounds on which separatism is being sought?
  • Explanation is also needed – is it not correct that LTTE did not allow a proper census of the north and east because they did  not wish to make public that the population was less than 400,000. Given the increase in ‘Tamils’ is it not valid for us to wonder how many of these ‘Tamils’ are actually born in Sri Lanka or descending from citizens of Sri Lanka or are they really from Tamil Nadu who have crossed when LTTE were controlling this terrain. LTTE did say 33% of its cadres were from Tamil Nadu.
  • What explanation do the eelamists have for over 200,000 Tamils migrating to Sinhala areas and away from LTTE held areas since 1983? Why is it that ‘refugees’ desire to ‘escape’ oppression and go to only western shores when they could easily go to Tamil Nadu? Why is Canada, US, UK, Norway, Switzerland, France, Australia, New Zealand the preferred destination of ‘refugees’? While over 1million Tamils are now living overseas majority now holding foreign passports and are foreign citizens why are they wanting a separate eelam/homeland?
  • Is it also not correct that the Eastern Province was artificially created by the British in 1873 and before that it was an integral part of the Kandyan Sinhalese territory? Was this not why the Kandyan king gave refuge to the alien Muslims who were attacked by the Portuguese in the eastern province? If so Tamils or India or any other party have no right to include East under Eelam and separate homeland.
  • free denizens and pay duty to the Sinhala King for the land that they enjoyed as the King’s natural subjects do” (Robert Knox describing the Malabars)
  • foreigners naturalized” Dr. John Davy referring to both Malabars and Moors.
  • Who is the architect of these distortions – SJV Chelvanayagam promoting communal extremism, advocating Christian missionary ambitions, and aligned with separatist elements from South India! Sadly the former President Kumaratunga accepted an invitation to be chief guest at his memorial oration.
  • Chelvanayagam’s lies were such that after forming ITAK camouflaging separatist notions by referring to the party as Federal Party in 1949 he states Tamil speaking people in Ceylon constitute a nation distinct from that of the Sinhalese by every fundamental test of nationhood”
  • Moreover the term ‘self-determination’ comes from the decolonization applicable to colonial territories seeking independence from foreign domination – Tamil Nadu sought this during India’s independence citing that Tamil Nadu was never part of India, as India was cobbled together for administrative benefit of the colonial British.
  • How can Tamils who have been referred to as Malabars coming from Tamil Nadu until being referred to as Ceylon Tamils from 1911 claim demands for nationhood and self-determination?
  • Next we have the argument of Tamils claiming to want to have autonomy over their own – well that too has also been given for 36 subjects of the 37 subjects under the provincial councils implemented following the 1987 Indo-Lanka Accord have been devolved to the provinces. Why is it that only the Northern Provincial Council is having problems and demanding land and police powers too? Why cant they perform with the 36 subjects already devolved to it? If the NPC Chief Minister is having enough time to go on world tours complaining, drafting resolutions on genocide and colonization why is it he does not have time to investigate why the NPC does not utilize the funds it has requested to develop the North? When we already have a federal set up in place what is it that the NPC Chief Minister and elements of the TNA linked to LTTE demanding?

Before we accept any solutions by the West or federalists and liberals who are ever willing to cede what is not theirs we need to be given answers as to why people who were known as Malabars by the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British should be given a separate homeland in Sri Lanka when their homeland is in India/Tamil Nadu. The next question is the usage of Ceylon Tamils as a distinct race came only after 1911 and on what grounds can Ceylon Tamils demand self-determination too for a history of just over 100 years?

Evidence based answers are kindly sought for these questions and until such time answers are forwarded and accepted draft constitution should not make any provisions for bogus demands based on lies and distortions primarily because leaders and officials in office have been too lazy to counter lies with factual evidence nor have they appointed academics and historians to produce historical evidence to produce before any international podium to nullify the lies and false propaganda.

    Hindians are Indians, Tamils are part of the Hindians who in tens of thousands went on the back of the British as Indian colonial parasites. I have personally come across these people from all parts of the world. The only difference is the perfume they use.

  2. plumblossom Says:

    Many Sri Lankans are gravely concerned about the TNA proposal to partition Sri Lanka into four pieces with a huge chunk (28% of the land area, 66% of the coastline and 66% of the ocean comprising the North and the East of Sri Lanka) going to the TNA racists and separatists as a merged North East federal state (but craftily disguised as ‘unitary’) with full powers.

    We are wondering why did over 43,000 both Sri Lankan Forces and civilians die at the hands of the LTTE and that megalomaniac Prabhakaran, if now, the TNA is being handed over an ‘Eelam’ so easily constitutionally?

    When looking at a GIS Map of Sri Lanka, it is amply clear that most of the forested areas of Sri Lanka are situated in the North and the East. Do not these forests belong to all the citizens of Sri Lanka? Do not the same principle apply to the ocean too or even the whole island, that the oceans and the whole island belong to all the people of Sri Lanka? Mr. Vigneshwaran has ‘created’ a fake history (stating that Tamils lived in Sri Lanka for 2000 years). Yet, there are no ancient ruins in Jaffna, in the North nor any ancient Dravidian writing to prove these fake claims. History of the Tamils commence mainly with the Dutch and the British bringing in large numbers of people from Tamil Nadu to work in tobacco plantations commenced by the Dutch and the British. There was the so called Jaffna Kingdom set up by an invader just prior to that but then Jaffna was only very sparsely populated. Our question is, can people such as Mr. Vigneshwaran ‘create’ his own fake history like this? He is ignoring the many Buddhist ruins, the many ancient Buddha statues, ancient Sinhala prakrit writing, the many ancient irrigation reservoirs built by Sinhala kings in the North and the East which proves an earlier indigenous Sinhala habitation in the North and all over the island. We would like to tell Mr. Vigneshwaran to be objective when it comes to history and archaeology and accept once and for all the fact that the Sinhala people lived all over the island for thousands of years and continue to do so. I would like Mr. Vigneshwaran to note that the provincial boundaries were drawn up by British colonialists for their administrative purposes with no input whatsoever from the Sinhala people and does not tally at all with the earlier history of the island which was unitary in nature.

    The Kandyan Kingdom (1400AD-1815) comprised almost all of the island inclusive of the East and almost all of the North. The earlier Kingdom of Rajarata (600BC-1400 AD) comprised the North Central, North Western, Northern and Eastern Provinces or the dry zone of Sri Lanka.

    We are gravely concerned regarding the drawing up of a new constitution where due to the pressure of the TNA, the US, EU, UK, Canada, Norway, Sri Lanka is in grave danger of being divided up on ethnic lines into four, five or even six different pieces. Is this not crazy?

    The TNA proposals were drawn up by experts which the TNA hired from the UK, Canada, Belgium, Canada, US and the like. Is this not an interference in Sri Lanka’s internal affairs by foreign powers, even to the extent of trying to draw up Sri Lanka’s constitution?

    Can any organization in Sri Lanka go to the supreme court and stop, once and for all, the merger of the North and the East since it is critical to stop this once and for all? Can any organization in Sri Lanka also go to the supreme court and stop, once and for all the, dividing up of this small island on ethnic or any other lines?

    The only way to stop this madness is to go to the supreme court and get a verdict which would prohibit the merger of any provinces and to stop once and for all the dismemberment of this small island on ethnic or any other lines.

    Kudos Shenali for calling a spade a spade.

    Not only are these people asking for part of our country, they are forcing their language on us. Many academic institutions have made Tamil compulsory. Why should a majority have to learn the language of a minority? This is a grave injustice to the Sinhalese who built and sustained the 2500 year civilization of this country. There is no practical use for learning Tamil. Tamil print simply wastes space on signs.

    The only thing Tamil does as an official language is burden the taxpayer by employing parasite translators and make a few Tamil tuition masters richer.

  4. anura seneviratna Says:

    “on what grounds can Ceylon Tamils demand self-determination too for a history of just over 100 years?”

    Even for 1000 years or more a settler community who already have their indigenous land of Tamil Nadu (Tamil Country) is never entitled to a national claim in the host country of SL or in any other host country.

  5. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    SORRY IAM DIGRESSING FROM THE SUBJECT MATTER FOR A MOMENT.

    WE ALWAYS HAD TWO SHINING STARS ON LANKA WEB.

    ONE WAS LORENZO, THE INDEFATIGABLE STAR COMMENTOR, ALWAYS THE FIRST TO MAKE A COMMENT, ON A POSTING.

    SECONDLY, THE INDOMITABLE, AND THE INDUBITABLE STAR ON POSTINGS, SHENALI WADUGE WITH BROAD SPECTRUM KNOWLEDGE ON EVERY SUBJECT POSTED.

    WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO LORENZO FOR HIS SILENCE IS EVERYBODYS CONCERN. CAN ANY OF HIS ERSTWHILE FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES, PLEASE, PLEASE ENLIGHTEN US ON THIS SILENCE!!!

  6. Dham Says:

    Susantha,
    Only two persons have seen “Lorenzo”
    1. Piyadigama – who knows him well at Army Hospital. He commented here recently giving his experience there but probably has not heard new details.

    2. Ananda- USA – He too has met Lorenzo but he hates him now for Lorenzo’s support to My3 , so must be very happy if he got killed. ( such is lack of wisdom) and he has his own reason. Lorenzo could be a defected LTTE intelligence man but he hates LTTE now.

  7. mjaya Says:

    Susantha,

    At one time I respected Lorenzo very much for he seemed like a rare Tamil who saw the truth for what it is. I knew two other such Tamils during my lifetime whom I shall not name for obvious reasons. However, I began do doubt him when he U turned and supported Jarapalanaya when every patriot could clearly see that for all his flaws MR was a much better option (I would say miles ahead of) MY3. MY3 has proven to be everything we warned against.

    Today you can hardly find anyone willing to admit that he voted for MY3, he is that unpopular. Probably Lorenzo is regretting what he did. People make mistakes in their life but I find it very hard to forgive someone for supporting Jarapalanaya.

  8. Dham Says:

    Mjaya,
    Lorenzo accepted supporting MY3 as the presidential candidate through Facebook. He regretted by March 2015. He never supported Jarapalanaya or UNP to come to power in 2105 General Election.

    Some people are making grave mistakes by worshipping personalities. Why should we care who comes to power ? We should evaluate what they would do after coming to power.

    I have read your comments for years. You are not a “personality” ඇඹලයා but a Lanka Lover, hater of Islam. You yourself criticised MR strongly but chose to support him as the presidential candidate. We should respect each other’s decision and not hate them or dislike them because of that. Why ? because it is the judgment at that time based on past action of the candidate.
    I don’t support MR even now unless we get something in black and white that he promise to get rid of Tamil and Muslim problems forever. He cannot be trusted. He created Jassim City next to Wilpattuwa, he mistreated real war heroes, he went to Vatican to worship Pope with Vaas and even now he does not accept any wrong doing.
    I am worried he will come to power with India’s help and sell our country.

  9. Dham Says:

    If Ranil try to sell the country there will be MR,JO, Sangha and many more to protest and fight. I one day MR secretly do that there will be only Sangha to fight. Who fought against Jassim City ?

  10. mjaya Says:

    Dham,

    In politics there is no black or white, you have to support the lesser of two evils. That is the cardinal truth. If you live in Sri Lanka then you would have seen the bad things that happened after MY3 came to power. MR is not perfect, I myself have criticized him more than anyone else but seeing who was behind MY3 (MY3 was just a puppet), anyone with common sense and sight of the big picture will support MR.

    MR made a grave mistake of not repealing the 13A. Had he done it he would still be in power. He listened to stupid advisors, not the patriots. He did nothing good for the country using 2/3 majority. However, compared to the damage MR did, MY3 and Jarapalanaya have done a million times more than MR. That I must say.

    I say good for what is good and bad for what is bad. If someone does bad I say it straight away be it MR or anyone else.

    One more thing, MR listened to the people on some critical issues, he did not sign CEPA due to opposition but today RW is going to sign ECTA and he seems to be bowing to nobody!

    No elaboration further but if Lorenzo truly regrets what he did. Then I will forgive him. After all it is the country that matters, no motherland no you and me.

  11. mjaya Says:

    Dham

    Tracked down Piyadigama’s comment on Lorenzo. Feel sad about him. After all he has been through, I forgive him!

    Lorenzo: Get better soon buddy! We all want you back!!

  12. Piyadigama Says:

    Dear Susantha,

    Please forgive me for being blunt. I have seen hundreds of young people die although we made every possible effort with available resources and other obstacles to save them. We make friends in this life and are attached to them which is human. But there comes a time when we have to let go. Sorry, I cannot pursue the matter any longer. I have no regular contact with his family and they may want privacy due to his circumstances. I wish him well and a complete recovery (the last time I heard about him, he was seriously injured but alive). That is all I can do. I’m sure he cherishes his friendship with you as much as you do. If he is well, he should have the common decency to let his friends know.

  13. Dham Says:

    majaya,
    Thanks mate.
    Yes, we all do that – lesser evil. But it is a judgement you make.
    Actually it is not MR’s fault. He is a man who should be kept in check. People spoiled him.
    Stupid Maharajanai rubbish totally unwarranted. He changed behaviour seeing people’s liking to him.
    Same thing happened after defeat. He realised his mistakes. But alas few moths later, with people coming and worshipping him his head grew back again. Now he says only mistake he did is protecting dulanjali !
    He released Indian druggies just before elections but left Sinhalese at death row. Unbelievable.
    However, at least his days Navy caught Indian Tamils. Now navy are catching Sinhalese fishermen. Lesser evil yes, but not predictable.

    WE COMMENTORS AND POSTERS GET INTO CONFLICT ON THIS FORUM, AND OFTEN GET INTO VARIANCE. THAT IS THE BEAUTY IN LANKA WEB.

    THIS IS ABOUT AN INDIVIDUAL, WHOM WE ALL HAVE NEVER MET OR SEEN, BUT ONLY INTERACTED ON LANKA WEB. WE SHOULD NOT DESPISE A HUMAN BEING FOR HIS OWN THOUGHTS ON A SUBJECT, WHEN OURS IS JUST THE OPPOSITE.

    TO ME, LORENZO WAS A HUMAN BEING, AND A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING AT THAT. I HAVE GOT INTO VARIANCE WITH HIM, BUT TRULY, I LOVE HIM THROUGH LANKA WEB, EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NEVER KNOWN HIM OR SEEN HIM, AND EVEN DO NOT KNOW WHAT COLOUR HE IS, LITERALLY, AND METAPHORICALLY.

    MAY HE BE BLESSED AND COME BACK TO THIS FORUM. WE ALL SHARE THIS THOUGHT.

  18. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    MJAYA !!! IT IS MR WHO IMPOSED THIS DIRTY STINKING **TAMIL COMPULSORY** IN EVERY SCHOOL. HE EVEN BROUGHT A RULE THAT ALL GOVERNMENT SERVANTS SHOULD LEARN AND KNOW TAMIL. THIS RULE MUST BE TAKEN OUT AND THE SINHALESE SHOULD NOT BE FORCED TO LEARN THE LANGUAGE OF A MINORITY. MR DID SOME IDIOTIC THINGS LIKE THAT. PRESENT PRESIDENT MUST RETRACT ON THIS COMPULSORY RULE AND GET RID OF IT. THE SOONER THE BETTER.

  19. mjaya Says:

    SW

    Yes I know that it happened under MR. It was that useless swearing Marxist dinosaur and in-law of Viggi who did it. Also the LLRC excrement.

    BTW: Viggi is in hospital after a sudden illness. He was supposed to discuss “Land Powers” with MY3. Hope the Grimm Reaper pays him and Samba (illegal O-L) a visit very soon.

  20. Dham Says:

    Susantha,
    There was a time Lorenzo and few of us really thought you were gone ! In fact Lorenzo even wished Nibbaana to you.
    MR’s evil list is not short, leaving aside numerous companies set up to play the game. No proof is needed. But the worse is his changing stance since loosing very month every week. Even Nalin said he is listening to DJ, Vasu, JLP than to Nalin. Is that acceptable ? Lesser evil , yes, he should be made to come behind people begging , people should not worship him.

  21. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    DHAM !! Yes, I do remember Lorenzo’s concern. You have a very good memory eh ? We interacted very closely through Lanka Web.

    MR has no persistent policy. He appears to be lost, and is setting about things on a trial and error basis. If I remember correct, he had a very lethargic, and an imbecile set of ADVISORS. They enjoyed the Perks much more than legitimate advice. They did not know what to advice on.

    People are going to him, because they can hear the voice of doom, and see coming events casting their shadows. We should have a HANUMAN ready to burn the Bridge from India to the North. People have to stop it on its tracks before they start it. President and Prime Minister, SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL, AND SPEAK NO EVIL, period.

  22. Dham Says:

    Susantha,
    I don’t think a bridge will be built ( except MR agrees with India).

    Ranil appears to be anti-Indian for day 1.
    1. He said he would shoot Indian fishermen.
    2. Now, after China trip I saw some news India has started complaining.
    3. Unlike MR, it is easy to turn him against India.

    Very little difference between MY3 and MR. MR too is a very bad manager but Basil and Gota made up for that problem.

    1. MY3 is the bigger liar and more cunning fox
    2. Less “Shobhane” than MR, simple life much lesser wasting public money.
    3. More generous to public
    4. I feel he is more HITLER like more of a dictator.
    5. Knows how to respect a monk by keeping knees on ground , head on ground. Despite being fitter MR does not do that, I don’t know the reason.
    6. His wife is Buddhist a simple Gama mahage woman whereas MR’s a Catholic sophisticated western oriented woman.

    MY3 and Ranil are fighting now for VAT. Cracks appearing fast. LTTE government will collapse soon.
    Will India but over MR ?
    Watch out. Watch out for the country.

  23. Dham Says:

    3 years ago in a rich Middle East country I met a highly educated Jaffna Tamil ( Singapore Citizen) man and got very close to him. We talked until 2-3 am at night some days about Sri Lanka.
    He accepted Jaffna Tamils are from Malabar and Tamil history in the island is less than 400 years. He said their ancestors were more or less pirates and smugglers (than low cast Tamils imported by Portuguese as Nalin says). He has a huge two story very old house in Jaffna.

    He went to Sri Lanka and met Basil/Chamal at Hambantota ( few times – I don’t know why Hambantota not Colombo) and built a strong relationship with Rajapaksas. When talking to him I understood they were trying to get some kind of self-rule. I was convinced their aim was Elam. It is a matter of time they will win Elam unless a new leader ( completely nothing to do with Ranil, MR, Sajith, MY3 ) is found. Every popular politician has the urge to sell the country for power and money.

  24. Christie Says:

    Pl see our recent history and other Indian colonies like Mauritius, Guyana, Fiji, etc etc.

    Indians went to these countries the same way they came here.

    Indians runs these countries now.

    Ceylon will be divided mainly in to two parts, one Tamil speaking Hindians and other Sinhala.

    Indians will run the country the same way they run the economy of the country today.

    The Sinhala section of the country will be run by people like in the JVP.

  25. Dham Says:

    Kithsiri,
    It will not stop there. Their aim is to catch the whole of the country. Then they will bring 50 million Tamils to the island and then breakaway from India.
    Think ahead.
    This can be stopped. If we continue to kick the asses of every politician and stop pampering them completely.

  26. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    PIYADIGAMA !!! Thanks for the info. Lets wait and see.

  27. Dham Says:

    Susantha,
    He can’t leave Lankaweb, I guarantee , same with you – you came back when we were transferring merit.
    Sorry to say I might leave this madness one day when I feel it is a waste of time. Sometimes it is difficult to practice Metta or feel like subjected to diminution commenting here.

  28. Piyadigama Says:

    You are welcome Susantha.

  29. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    Dham !! I believe you are about 58 or 59 years. If so, I am 22 years or more, your Senior. So, there is plenty of time for you on Lanka Web. Yes, what we write hear, is like playing a Violin to a Deaf Elephant…the Jaraa Paalanaya Government. They heed nobody, in their drunken stupor with self arrogated Power.

    Can you see the THREATS AND INTIMIDATION by these Government buggers to MR et al re-May Day Rally. SLFP is not so big as they make out to be. It is akin to a cohabitation of a prostitute, a gay, and a pimp. It has lost its Sword / Sirimavo Glory. There is an old adage, **Old order changeth, yielding place to New.** It has to be that way.

  30. Dham Says:

    Susantha,
    While I am at the computer I can add some words. But I have to start proper meditation sooner than later to make use of this human birth.
