India should attend to resettlement of the thousands of poverty stricken slums in Mumbai, Calcutta and others.

Sri Lanka does not care damn if India does or does not welcome the restrictions that had been imposed on the displaced Tamil civilians in Sri Lanka. Certain restrictions had to be imposed on Sri Lankans of Tamil origin as they were rescued from LTTE terrorist lairs and until circumstances are conducive to resettle them in their original places of habitation.

Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao is not a new kid on the block when it comes to Sri lanka. She can convey her sentiments to President Mahinda Rajapaksa however he should take it with a pinch of sugar as her ideas are always bitter. A historic opportunity to initiate a process of reconciliation where all communities can live in peace and harmony is available but what Nirupama Rao should understand, is that it is for the Tamils to decide if they are for integration or separatism. Sri lanka from North to South, East to West belongs to all Sri Lankans. Why not promote Indian consulates in Galle, Trinco, Batticaloa etc! [Create more Indian soils within Sri Lanka]  

External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna must tell the Rajya Sabha not about the war in Sri Lanka and the search for a political settlement but what he is doing to stop dozens of terrorist groups carrying out terrorist activities in his own back-yard and what political settlement he is going to give them. Our President and government can sort out the internal affairs of Sri Lanka. The biggest humanitarian act., S.M. Krishna can do is to grant citizenship to Tamils in their motherland Tamil Nadu in India, to Tamils who do not want to live and work in Sri Lanka  as Sri Lankans with allegiance to Sri Lanka. This will be the political settlement of the century.
