ToƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  All Tamil Eelamists

Velu Pillai Prabhakaran, Late National Leader of Tamils everywhere
7th Zone of Hell

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ My dear fellow Tamil Eelamists, Vanakkam!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ I started to write this letter ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…”- one of the most important messages I have delivered –ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  a few days ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ before my untimely departure from the battlefield.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Unfortunately, I was not able to email it because the damn enemy air force disconnected all my Internet connections.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ So, today, on my first death anniversary, I am compelled to use a member of the accursed Singalam race to channel this urgent missive to you.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ As you know, the Eelam project I launched 30 years ago ended on a sad note in theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Nanthikadal lagoon a year ago.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  By then the Sri Lanka forces had reduced the territory I ruled from 65,000 square miles to a 2 square mile spit of sand in the Northeast of the island where I had force-marched 300,000 Tamils who served as my human shield. By then I had lost my grand headquarters in KilinocchiƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  and I was running the war from a sand pit as the Sri Lanka forces moved in for the kill.

Dear Tigers in the Diaspora:

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ First of all I must offer you my profuse gratitude for the great service you are rendering for our common cause ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…”- to grab one-third of the small island of Sri Lanka to set up our dream state of Tamil Eelam.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I know in your deepest heart, you wish the break-up of Sri Lanka and the establishment of our glorious Eelam. I am fully aware of your untiring efforts to ruin Sri Lanka’s image and make it a pariah state.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I know that you are being arrested in the foreign lands which tolerated you for a long time, even supported you.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  But don’t give up the dream. Fight on!

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ My dear INGO friends: you are my mango friends.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I am proudƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  you have quickly adopted the methods our propaganda masterminds perfected over the years:ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  get creative with data, invent discrimination against Tamils, cry genocide, doctor images, manipulate the Western media, co-opt them as propagandists, woo politicians in the West to support our cause, whenƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  necessary hire mercenary lobbyists. And repeat lies ad nauseam until they sink in as the truth.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  You can fool most of the people most of the time. This I know for a fact.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ I was delighted to see my Ezham Tamil sister Navi PillaiƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  warmly clasping the hand of our point man in Britain, the busy Mr Milliband whose party has sadly lost in Britain.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  But give him my fond regards.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I have asked Tamils in the UK to vote for him and look after him, just like we looked after Solheim and crowdƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ in Norway.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ A word of advice to Tamils in foreign lands.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Don’t even think about asking for a separate state in those countries, especially in Fiji, South Africa,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  West Indies or Malaysia.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The machetes will come out before you could say Velu Pillai Prabhakaran, and they willƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  slaughter every single Tamil there. That will be a genuine bloodbath, unlike our fictions in Sri Lanka. But to Indian Tamils I say, give it a try.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It’s worth a shot in Canada and Australia, too.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ A big thank you to all foreigners relentlessly persecuting Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  YourƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  avowedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  aim to also prosecute theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  LTTE leadership for war crimes is a masterstroke!ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  None of us are around in the land of the living for a Kangaroo Court — I mean an Intentional War Crimes Tribunal to prosecute — are we?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Only the damn victors are available for prosecution.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ My fervent appeal to people like Madam Clinton and Chris Patten is that you continue to do as much damage as you can to accursed Sri Lanka while you ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ warm your powerful seats.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ My dear Eelamists:

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Do everything you can to bring Sri Lanka to disrepute.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Lie, coax, cajole, plead and bully the powerful nations of the West and theirƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  influencers toƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  tarnish Sri Lanka with fictitious charges of genocide, R2P and theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  whole armory of weapons available to you to wage war against this damn country by other means.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Convey my great appreciation to the Western media ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…”- the dependable BBC, the London Times, New York Post, etc, for their good support. Wish that media like the Washington Post and Canada’s National Post and BritainƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Daily Mail would follow suit. But then, we can’t win them all, can we?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ But be cunning.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Make sure that not one of the wretches we used as human shields and served as our ace to batter Sri Lanka in the international arena is given the chance to testify.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  That would not be a good idea; they would spill the beans. They know how I grabbed their children for cannon fodder and human bombs, exploited them to dig ditches, shot and hacked them to death when they tried to flee.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ You can’t blame me for all this;ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  as the leader of Eelam, I had no choice.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I always believed the end justified the means. And those miserable wretchesƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  were expendable resources.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Their lives were mine to command or destroy.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I had to think and act like a god.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  After all, that’s howƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I expected them to treat me. I know that some of them have told their real stories. But theyƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  are published only in the Sri Lanka media and their Defence website.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  But if they are exposed to international media, it could be bad for us, unless our sympathetic editors send partial reporters to slant stories to make us look good and Sri Lanka look horrible — or do the needful and kill those stories.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Again, I send my regards to all the UN people and INGOs for doing their best to relentlessly hit Sri Lanka and boost us with their canards.

My dear Eelamists:

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Here’s another piece of advice from lessons I learnt the hard way, alas too late.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  You see, we Tamil racists always held a superiority complex. Our arrogance blinded us. We bought into the myth that our arch enemy, the Singhalams — every man, woman and child — were idiots.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Over the decades, we broadcast their stupidity and our superiority and invincibility.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  But we did not stop to ask a crucial question: if the Singhalams were so stupid, how come they survived for more than 2,000 years, despite our best efforts to make them history or absorb them?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I made that mistake.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And it proved deadly.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The Singalams are not kavun-eating fools, comrades.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They are a wily people.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And I must admit, when provoked, they are deadly, fearless and relentless.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They decimatedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  my glorious Eelam army, which we made our supporters and the world at large believe was invincible.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  In truth, they beat the hell out of us. In quick time.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ It hurts me a lot to think that my suicide bombers failed in their mission to take out Fonseka and Gota early on.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Had they done so, I am sure things would have been different.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Their brains in the international arena scored another victory, didn’t they?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I told Pottu to get rid ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  that dangerous Dayan Jayatilaka and Rajiva Wijesinghe.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  A pox upon Pottu for not doing the deed.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Be very careful. The Sighalams areƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  small in number compared to Tamils. But they are a proud, gutsy people.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They have intense national pride, they have a sense of history.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They also fear being submerged by a Tamil tide and, unlike us, they have no kin across the Palk Straits or in places like South Africa.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  With thousands of miles ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  sea between Dondra Head and the icy wastes ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ at the bottom of the world, they know they have no place to run; they know that Sri Lanka is the only piece of earth they have.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  So they will fight for it and die for it.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ And another thing; they never forget the many attempts like mine in the past, when our ancestors tried to grab land.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They are a resilient bunch, I must admit.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  We underestimate them at our peril.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Still, with the support of our 80 million Tamils, I don’t see why we can’t vanquish 15 million Singalams — eventually.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I live in hope.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  At least I used to until a year ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ago.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ So keep faith.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Fight on for our dream state.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ I expect your unstinted dedication to the cause.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  We don’t take kindly to dereliction of duty. But if you keep scoring, I will personally pin a Mahaveer tag on you when I meet you on this side.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ I’ll be watching you.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Yours in Eelam,

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Late Velu Pillai (Alias Glorious Sun God for whom, alas, the sun set in the magroves on Nanthikadal

    Dear Thambi,
    Strange that you did’t thank Fonseka. He is the one helping to keep your falg flying. It would have been good if you could give details of 7th Zone in Hell. Looks like it is much better than Tamil Nadu.


    Well written comic. Plea…se one mo….re!!!!
