Sri Lankan Independence in the 21st Century.

Sashika

Few days ago Sri Lankan history was in the making and now we have added a new chapter in our Mahavamsa, which the future generations will read with greatest pride.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It would not be a surprise if there were questions based on this great achievement in the Ordinary Level History exams. Sri Lankans world over watched impatiently, some even speculated, imagined the unthinkable even before the actual battlefield news unfolded, such was everyoneƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s enthusiasm to see an end to this cruel war against terrorism.

This futile war has brought nothing but misery to millions of Sri Lankans and many like me lived everyday for the last three decades hoping to see an end to this conflict during our lifetime. We would not have achieved this historical day if not for the selfless effort of our armed forces, the Sri Lankan government and the patriotic citizens of Sri Lanka. Our armed forces, second to none, and possibly the most disciplined army in the world which has made all of us feel proud to be Sri Lankan all over again, has set precedence to all other armed forces on how to combat terrorism with restraint while considering the human element caught in the middle.

Often these soldiers had to endure the most dire conditions, willing their bodies to the human extreme. Running into enemy fire, knowing injury or worse was only a split second away. That requires an almost superhuman effort, both physical and mental, and extraordinary courage, one that no average person can even begin to comprehend. One such soldier was engaged in a surveillance operation where he was positioned in water for days ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” resulting in his soles being physically attached to the inside of his boots when he returned. Such was the dedication of these men. Their confidence in victory was total. Their commitment to the cause was absolute.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The fight against LTTE was not only fought in Wanni but also in foreign lands where the Pro LTTE Tamil Diaspora had been reaping the seeds of hatred against the Sinhalese from the comfort of their conflict free developed nations. Fending off all the Pro LTTE propaganda and being answerable to the international community either being duped by Aid agencies, world bodies that had LTTE sympathizers working in them or had influential world politician in the pay roll of the LTTE, has certainly not been an easy task. This battle is yet to be won. Having said that, if all patriotic forces stay united as Sri Lankans this too can be won.

Innocent Tamil civilians who escaped from the clutches of the LTTE defying their orders should also be remembered for their bravery. It is reasonable to state that when the civilians attempt to cross over to the government controlled territory at least one tenth of them either get killed or injured. They die so that their loved ones can escape the unthinkable suffering they were faced in the hands of the LTTE.

In the past, one would have thought the ideal way to end the military campaign against the terrorists would be one in which India continuously denies help but does help Sri Lankan government, and SLA kills Prabhakaran and all news about him and his remains are made a mystery. This would be the solution which makes both nations happy, and keeps the lunatics, cult worshipers at bay wondering what happened to the devil himself.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

The Eelam Limited.

A large profitable organization with many buyers and beneficiaries all over the developed nations.

This well established industry run by businessmen who are making money and selling one product to the world, the Eelam. As long as this product is available the Tamil Diaspora and their sympathizers would continuously support this futile cause financially. And with the these large sums of money collected at the expense of innocent suffering Tamils in Sri Lanka, the Ealam Company would also buy over support of politicians, academics, AID agencies in the West who may also have an unaccountable finance benefit for their effort in keeping the Ealam dream alive.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

To these conniving Eellamist the legacy of this cult figure (VP) was paramount and I hope they will now give up on this Ellam business and go into legitimate ventures as enough blood had been spilt. These misguided and even corrupted politicians in the West had undermined the legitimate rights of a democratic country which is upsetting to the professionals in their own countries who are upholding the law and order.

What actually happened to Prabakaran ?

We might not know the answer to this question without any doubt. The conspiracy theorists worked overtime last few days coming up with many theories, some practical while the others were only good to be seen on a movie.

But one thing remains certain. His existence or demise has become irrelevant. A freedom fighter to all the mislead, corrupt LTTE sympathisers and a cold blooded murderer to all the innocent civilians will never rise again during our lifetime.

As compassionate Sri Lankans who would even mourn the death of our enemies lets hope that Prabakakaran, Nadesan, Pottu Aman, Soosai, not to forget the early departed Thamilselvan, Balasingham ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and all the others have finally begun their new life in Eelam. A place like no other, a ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ place which every grieving parent, child, friend in Sri lanka wished for LTTE when they killed their innocent loved ones over the last three decades.

My mind goes back to my Physics class where I learnt of Newtons third law stating ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”Every action has an equal and opposite reactionƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ which is closely related to the Buddhist philosophy where the Buddha said that ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”all the bad we do in our life will follow us around like the cart wheel following the bullockƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢. There can be no greater example of this than this victory.

A New beginning

After three decades the sun has shun in Sri Lanka bringing peace to this paradise nation. From now on it is going to be a peaceful coexistence between all races in Sri Lanka. There is no time to waste, we have to regain what we lost. After the clearing operations are completed, resettling all the IDPƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s and satisfying all their basic needs should be the top priority. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

We never completely recovered from the complex issues that Colonisation left us with, but this victory has given us another chance to start all over again. We are wiser now than ever before and the path to success and prosperity has never been clearer.

Sri Lanka mourns the death of all the valiant heroes that fought fearlessly, sacrificing their lives on behalf of all Sri Lankans and prays that they find their way back home to enjoy the calm that prevails now due to their sacrifice. Your name will live on forever in our hearts.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”May the triple gem bless our great Island NationƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢
