Giving into India: India forgets that Sri Lanka is a sovereign country
Posted on May 27th, 2011

By Garvin Karunaratne Ph.D.

The Island has reported in its Editorial that India has in a very high handed manner persuaded Sri Lanka to implement the 13 th Amendment to the Sri Lankan Constitution and to grant police and land powers to the Provincial Councils, among other matters all of which smacks interference in the domestic matters of a sovereign Sri Lanka,

Dr Gunadasa Amerasekera the President of the Patriotic National Movement has also questioned the high handed act of Foreign Secretary G.L.PerisƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s signing an Agreement with India on his recent visit. He statesƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”, the Government of Sri Lanka has promised inter alia to remove emergency laws, implement the 13th amendment, to devolve land and police powers, to ensure that expeditious and concrete progress is made to the ongoing dialogue with the TNA, and to implement the SEEPA agreement etc. without delay. What Minister G.L Peiris has promised is highly detrimental to the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of this country ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-.

It is very clear that Foreign Secretary Peris has been taken for a ride by India. Earlier he was taken for a ride by Hilary Clinton, the US Secretary of State when questioned about the Panel appointed by Ban Ki Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations. Gunadasa Amerasekera has questioned whether the Foreign Secretary had the power to enter into such an Agreement.

It is a well known fact that the 13 th Amendment to our Constitution was forced onto us by Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, who pressurized President Jayawardena to get this Amendment to the Constitution at the point of the gun. India had sent sorties of bombers over the City of Colombo, got destroyers to appear off the Port of Colombo- a show of force, did a drop of food-parippu over Jaffna and President Jayawardena caved in. President Jayawardena had by that time incarcerated all the Members of Parliament, in a Five Star Hotel, held them there under Army Guard and he would march them to Parliament to vote as he wished. That was the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-democraticƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ practice of President Jayawardena, who held undated letters of resignation in his pocket and threatened to activate the resignation letters in case the Members of Parliament were to vote otherwise.

That was the exact manner in which the 13 th Amendment was passed. Patriots have repeatedly called for the annulment of the 13 th Amendment on the grounds that it was passed under duress. But it is reported that this 13 th Amendment was approved by the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka and it is accepted that the matter ends there.

It is forgotten that those were the days when my teacher, Professor Ediriweera Sarathchandra was assaulted when he addressed a meeting pointing out the excesses of President JayawardenaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s rule. That was also when the residences of the Supreme Court Judges were stoned possibly to bring them under subjugation!..

It is high time that the 13 th Amendment was declared annulled.

It is very timely to quote what is happening in India itself, in West Bengal in connection with the current elections to the State Assembly. No less a person than Sonia Gandhi, the President of Congress had accused the West Bengal State Assembly of sabotaging the development policies approved by the Central Government. As reported in The India Times:, Sonia Gandhi, :ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚charging the ruling Left Front Government of not properly utilizing the funds sanctioned by the Center for the StateƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s developmentƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦ emphasized for a change of regime in West BengalƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚.

She has also alleged ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-that the CPI(M) led Left Front Government was siphoning off Central Funds and had turned West Bengal into a bankrupt StateƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ (FlashNews20/4/2011)

The charge is that the Leftist Government did not ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…- properly utilize the funds sanctioned by the Center for the StateƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s development.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚. Sonia GandhiƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s call was ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-for a change of regime in West BengalƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ at the election.(Sify News:15/4/2011)

This shows that India already has seen what a State Government can do to sabotage the policies dictated by the Central Government. There have been many an instance where the Central Government of India had decided to annul a State Government.

In view of the practicality of a State Government not adhering to the rightful decisions of the Central Government- which is amply proved by the current situation in West Bengal, it is a moot question as to why India is insisting that the 13 th Amendment should be implemented in full with land and police powers to be given. If the West Bengal State cannot be depended upon to adhere to the policies laid down by the Central Government of India why is India compelling Sri Lanka to hand over full land and police powers to the Provincial Councils, Councils that have failed in the simple task of handling the administration of some of our hospitals.

The answer to my mind is simply clear. India wants Sri Lanka to disintegrate and be de stabilized!. It is not in IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s interest to see Sri Lanka as a vibrant economy. In fact that is why India wants us to agree to the CEPA Trade Agreement. I was in Sri Lanka when the Free Trade Agreement was signed between India and Sri Lanka during the rule of President Kumaranatunge. That crippled most of our small industries. More small industries were closed down when the CEPA was signed. India wants our economy to falter and for us to borrow more money from India and for us to become a vassal of India. That is the motive of India.

Let me speak of my experience as an administrator. Take the Mahaweli River. Give powers over land to the Provincial Councils and the Central Province will not want any water to flow to the North Central Province and the Mahaweli Development which has brought prosperity to the country will no more have any water. In fact the Kala Weva gets water from the Matale Hills that belong to the Central Province. It is sheer nonsense to devolve any land powers to any Provincial Councils. We are commiting economic suicide. I need not mention that Bangladesh and India have totally failed in handling the waters of the mighty Ganges. India takes water from the Ganges for Calcutta and this has denuded vast sections of land at the mouth of the Ganges in Bangladesh and salinity is increasing in lands that were under verdant cultivation earlier.

Provincial Councils with its Chief Ministers and subject Ministers have proved to be a hindrance to the smooth administration of development policies as they could like in the case of West Bengal sabotage development plans. When I covered the subject of fertilizer in the Department of Agrarian Service in 1962, I sent out the first circular providing instructions on fertilizer use for paddy cultivation and every official had to implement it. Now with Provincial Councils the implementation of any policy or circular lies at the mercy of the Provincial Ministers. The Provincial Councils have become an unnecessary expense and also a hindrance to effective administration.

Take devolving police powers. This will create many problems and will easily lead to a few countries emerging within Sri Lanka.

Take development. In the Fifties, when a call went out to the Private Sector to establish Rice Mills it was entrepreneurs from the Western and Southern areas that responded and put up rice mills all over the country.

Any one country has to be taken as a whole single entity, where people from areas where people are living in high density can move to areas where there is land for development and cultivation. We are today seeing the detrimental effects of Great Britain dividing India into two when granting independence. Pakistan broke into two and today we are seeing Pakistan disintegrating. The present area of Pakistan was a vibrant economy in India. Divide and Rule is the motto of Imperial Superpowers and I am certain that Sri Lanka will be broken into a number of regions if police and land powers are ever devolved to the Provinces.

Finally it is not in IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s interests to see a vibrant and strong Sri Lanka. The 13 th Amendment was forced on Sri Lanka to break us into bits and leave our people warring within groups.

We have achieved much by defeating terrorism. That terrorism was created by no other than Prime Minister Indira Gandhi of India who provide military training and equipped to the LTTE. A Colonel known to me in the Sri Lankan Army in 1981 told me that the LTTE had weapons that the then Sri Lankan Army did not have. That was how Indira Gandhi destabilized us. Thereafter it was Rajiv Gandhi that destabilized us with his 13 th Amendment and the submission of President Jayawardena, who knealt at his feet.

It is very very unlikely that a Rajapaksa will sacrifice the sovereignty of Sri Lanka to anyone. President RajapaksaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s victory in annihilating the LTTE ignoring the wishes of all the Superpowers, in itself, proves that. That was a task in which earlier Presidents miserably failed.

It is up to us to be united to withstand the onslaught of not only India but of all the Superpowers and also the mighty United Nations, who are now trying to shred us to bits.

    “FOREVER WAR” seems to be what India wants to foist on Sri Lanka. Surely, India must know by now that ethnic based devolution is not working in India either considering New Delhi’s constant tensions with Tamil Nadu and some other states…and this despite India’s large geographic proportions in comparison to Sri Lanka. Devolution via the 13thA simply has not even worked to demonstrate anything positive…only fostered regional politicos who flaunt their power and thuggery. Any enhancement of the 13thA will never be politically accepted and Pres. MR will not jeopardize his political advantage, and one cannot expect him to be politically naive to go that route.
    The MR Govt. does seem amenable to Central arrangements and why the Tamils of Sri Lanka do not jump at this alternative is baffling, considering the many advantages it would give them. Even as it is, Tamil investors coming into Sri Lanka are investing their monies in the South where the markets are. It is only by greater involvement at the Center that power can emanate to the periphery. Seems to me that the current Tamil political leadership is stuck in a time warp of the Vaddukoddai Resolution, and will sink with it rather than swim with modernization.

    that Foreign Secretary Peris has been taken for a ride by India !

    No that is not true, Our Foreign Secretary is doing very good job to stop These western white (UN) .

    No one in North & East do not want 13 or 13+, they want food , Job & thier home back thats all as South & West of country!

    Foreign Secretary G.L.Peris is proven useless man. He mess-up Colombo campus when he was the VC. He went to India along and he has no authorization to signed any agreement as “One Man Show” with India. Whatever it is CB gave him good lecture and send him off. I think MR should show to door open for him to go and re-join Ranil

    Thanks Garvin for your very insightful thoughts … I can not but agree in full for your analysis of our neighborhood thug, India and it’s intentions to use this ugly 13th to their advantage .. Whole idea of 13th is to keep our beautiful country under poverty forever and divide not only through physically but also along communal and religion lines .. India knew that mushrooming politicians all across SL, country would never come out of poverty … That, I think is one of the main hidden agendas creating Provincial Councils under 13th … PC’s are not only for devolution but also to put thousands and thousands of 6000 rupees a month councillors into power there by creating huge number of corrupted politicians all over the country … Don’t you think that the Corruptions created by these 6000 rupees councillors and the huge expenses to maintain them enough reasons to get rid this ugly 13th?

  8. Ramanie Says:

    Totally agree with Dr K! How many times do we have to say that India is no friend of SL? Nothing that India forces down our throats is good for us. SCRAP 13A NOW!!!!!!!!! Say NO to India- no matter what question they ask!

  9. ranjit Says:

    Majority of the contributers to the lankaweb has written many articles regarding India and his bulling tactics towards Sri Lanka. Most of their view point was India is not actually a friend good or bad. I will never ever forgive them for what they did to our country. Millions will agree with Gavin regarding 13 amendment. We need to scrap it without any argument or debate. Our land is ours and we have the will to take care of our things on our own as Chinese says. India should keep off on our affairs and mind their own business.

    His excellency the President took great decisions on behalf of our Motherland in difficult times in the past and I hope he will take care of this dirty 13 too in the future for the sake of our country and it’s citizens. Central Government can handle everything rather than giving any powers to councils and districts as we are a nation of only 25 million people. I am sure we should not worry too much about this dirty 13 because I have a 100% trust on our President to take care of this infamous issue as he took more powerful decisions during the war and after the war on many issues related to our sovereign nation. Anyhow Gavin it is good to write these kinds of topics to keep us wake up and alert the public all the time.

  10. bandara Says:

    Thank you for the article.Anyway this kind of articles must be published in sinhala press too.
    Indians are experts in slow indirect invasion of countries.Slowly they come one by one and settle down in other countries and after some time they build up in to large Indian community.There are many examples ie. Singapore ,Malasia,Dubai,UK,Fiji.
    Indian are planing to do this in Sri Lanka through CEPA.

    India doesn’t like to see prosperity in Sri Lanka .They envy it.They don’t tolerate a big difference in living standards in two countries.If we improve beyond some level they will do anything to sabotage it.

    Sri Lankan Government along cannot resist Indian influence.The entire society should join.The JVP led “boycott indian goods movement” during IPKF times was a affected indian businesses badly.Sri Lanka is a good market for indians. If they bully us too much lets get in to the street with boycott indian goods campaing.(tata ,maruthi ,parippu, IOC, so many)

  11. M.S.MUdali Says:

    Christianized Sinhalese and Tamils think, they are not part of Indian sub continent but unfortunately they are all under the ass of India.

    Sovereignity has limits and cannot dictate others. India is always a feeding country of Sri lanka from Politics, Religion to other cultural issues.

    More than 150,000 Sri lankan Tamil refugees are in India. Why do Garvin and others silent on that issue? Beating Tamils is a kind of politics for UNP and other Sinhala racists to get political power in Sri lanka. India took many years to realize that the LTTE is an anti-Indian organization and not fighting for TAMIL issues and backed by UNP Sinhalese.

    President Mahinda knows very well how India contributed to destroy a pro-western terrorist organization in the Island! President and minister GLP will listen to India and find a solution for the ills of Sri lanka!

  12. AnuD Says:

    Generally, Academics are not good administrators. That is why they screw up whenthey are put into administrative positions. that is why con-artists do well as politicians.

    I think, in this situation both Sri Lanka and India had to do what they did. Because, Tamils live on tribal politics. See how, even inside their territory, TN, everything begins with the word Dravida.

    Other than that, remember what former foreign Secretary ?, Nirupama Rao said.

    They all know 13th amendment is crap. That wanted it when JRJ tried to circle socialist India with pro-american Sri Lanka.

  13. jayt Says:

    For sri lanka communities, please kindly avoid personal attack on India or Indian communities. This gives the victory to foreigners who got the Indian govt to bring up the issue of 13th amendment. their main aim is destruction of Sri lanka economy and relationship with India. There is clear clues that after India brought up this issue, in the next day, somebody infiltrated to Sri Lanka govt to get them ban visa for Indian tourists. There have been thousands of setups likes this have been taking place between India and Sri Lanka mostly since 1980s. India is not jealousy toward Sri Lanka. This is the propaganda inserted into Sri Lanka by foreigners.
    In regard to visa issues, each country has their visa rules setup according to security issue. So please do not expect India, Pakistan or any other country compromise their security because Sri lanka decided to give visa on arrivals. In any case, if any foreigner use this visa system to smuggle weapons or drugs to harm very fabric of Sinhalese society, then, it is the govt duty simply cancel it. But be aware, some foreigner might do it in order to get Sri lanka govt cancel the visa system.

  14. cassandra Says:

    Contributors of articles on this website and respondents to them have written almost ad nauseam about India’s interference in Si Lanka’s internal affairs and her apparent disregard for the island’s sovereignty. This is almost stating the obvious. India has interfered in the internal affairs of SL and no doubt will continue to do so. To my mind, part of this is because India fancies itself as a regional power (or THE regional power) in this part of the world and feels entitled to throw her weight around in this region, just as much as the US does in her self-appointed role of the world’s policeman. All this follows a familiar pattern. If you recall, at the end of WWII or towards the end of it, the so-called Big Four – the US, Britain, the USSR and France – ‘divided’ the world among themselves into their individual ‘spheres of influence’. Of course, no one bothered to ask the people of those regions under whose influence they wanted to be. Never mind that, it was simply a case of might is right. Nothing has changed. And now, India probably feels even more emboldened in the role in which it sees itself because the US has virtually anointed India as its Deputy Sheriff to watch the US interests in this part of the world, in its efforts to thwart China’s rise and possible supremacy in Asia. So, it would be naive to think that India is going to leave SL alone. SL needs to accept this reality but do everything possible to resist unwarranted interference in the island’s affairs.

    India has not hesitated to play the bully in the region, be it in Nepal or in helping to break up Pakistan and establish Bangladesh. And as for its actions in SL, we cannot forget, among others, the infamous parippu drop which involved a violation of SL’s air space, the training and arming of various Tamil groups and the ‘imposition’ of the 13th Amendment. The 13th Amendment was pushed down SL’s throat when SL was in no position to offer any effective resistance. India also took advantage of SL’s vulnerable position at the time to obtain huge concessions, bordering on control, in respect of the Trincomalee harbour and the Palaly airport. These latter had nothing to do with the demands of the Tamil groups – they were simply for India’s benefit.

    SL is again in a weakened situation. However much the report of Ban Ki-moon’s Panel may be illegal, unauthorised or flawed and regardless of all the domestic protesting, the fact is the substance of the report has been accepted by many countries and SL risks the danger of continued international demands for action. And, true to form, India is again taking advantage of SL’s weakened position to demand concessions and action which it has no moral or legal right to ask. But such niceties don’t seem to matter to the Indians.

    There is neither rhyme nor reason for implementing 13A. It has not been implemented for almost 25 years, conditions have changed vastly in the interim and 13A is now a dead letter. The Supreme Court has also held the merger of the two provinces was illegal. Besides, 13A was accepted by SL under duress and is not therefore valid. To implement 13A and give the new PC police powers and rights over land and land allocation will be fatal for the unity of the island. Rights over land allocation will mean that anyone other than Tamils will be effectively shut out of the region, thus giving the Tamils rights superior to those enjoyed by the other communities. 13A must be resisted at all costs.

    The whole concept of ‘power sharing’ as now being pursued is a fraud. Do not the Tamils in the North and East have as much power sharing as the rest of the island, through having the same voting rights as others? What is meant by power sharing is in fact vesting in the people of those areas with more power than others enjoy in the rest of the island; it means conferring on the people of the North and the East a privileged position.

    The Rajapakse government did commendably well to hold its nerve and not give in to the demands of the West during the last stages of the war with the LTTE. In some ways, resisting the international pressure is more difficult now than it was then – and a different set of skills may be needed now – but one must hope that the government is able to show the same resolve and not cave in to this pressure.

  15. Sri Rohana Says:

    Mudali! For your comment on 28th May. How come you say that 150,000 tamil refugees in India’s tamil country (tamil nadu). Can’t you understand that tamils gone back to their homeland, Ancestral country, traditional homeland. There cannot be tamil refugees in tamil country. Refugee concept is origin in to an alien country. Ex: If a Sinhala born in U.K came back to Sri Lanka is not a refugee. He or she can claim ancestral rights and live as a citizen. He never becomes a refugee.
    Tamil country (tamil nadu) is the place of tamils originated and from there only they migrated or taken by British invaders to Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Fiji, Mauritius, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Trinidad & Tobago, British Guyana, Jamaica etc. The very unique identity is all those countries were formerly British invaded countries. Tamils take as sub slaves or as wage laborers (coolies) to those countries. Even LTTE leaders father came as a wage laborer to Sri Lanka in 1940’s.

    But tamils most gone back to tamil country during late 1980’s are illegal migrants lived in Mannar and Vauniya districts. Tuticoran (thutukudi), talai mannar, mannar and vauniya the route of illegal tamil migrants road to Vauniya district. Since they were not having proper identity cards they went back to tamil nadu to settle there.

    The real bizarre situation is tamils those who gone to tamil country still living in refugee camps? How come tamils are refugee in tamil homeland. Why can’t tamil country politicians welcome them back to their traditional home land. Western countries are way better to tamils than tamil politicians in tamil nadu. Though they knew tamils came as economic refugees to Canada, England, Australia, France, Germany, Norway, U.S, Swiss, Holland etc. Within three years they granted citizenship. But hell tamils homeland kept them nearly 25 years without granting them citizenship. This is a human catastrophe. Tamil politicians make use of these human as a bargaining tool to interfere Sri Lanka’s internal affairs.
    We have to tell tamil nadu political jokers that they cannot have the cake and eat the cake. If they claim that they have right of tamils then take them back. If they don’t want to take tamils back then keep their mouth shut. That is how Malaysians directly told tamil nadu political jokers in 2009 after tamil racist riots in Kuala Lumpur.

    Sorry Sri Rohana ,I agreed you are a true Lanka Puthta , but do not insult other Ilankai Puthalvarkalai , they have same & equal felling like you about thier Mother lanka .

    Our Both orininal country are Ancestral country & also our both relians are not from Sri Lanka !!! I do not want to give any example to explain you .

    Insulting other comunite will not creat any good to our Mother Lanka !

    This is One County & One Nation , We All are Lanka Puththa ( Puthalvarkal) !!!

  17. Sri Rohana Says:

    If I am wrong check at Talai mannar, Pesalai, Mannar . Large percentage living there are non Sri Lankans. What I am saying is when they find a difficult time in war it was their best option to go back to India. This is not an insult Andy. We have to accept the truth. We have to come out from the box to a solution. What our point is why can’t Tamil Country(tamil nadu) take their men and women when they return. If westerners can what is wrong give them a citizenship in tamil country.It is their traditional homeland. If someone wants to live in Sri Lanka with Sinhala they have right to live with us. But if they want to go back to India also their right to live there. So tamil nadu has to give facilities to tamils those who came there. It is an insult and injustice to keep tamils in so called refugee camps in their traditional homeland more than 25 years. The main insult done by tamil nadu political jokers andy not us.

    MS Mudali.

    1.2 billion christians want dominance over 300 million buddhists. buddhists are not into killings, so, in order to have have ipper hand, christians scream about equal rights. They say equal rights when they finished conversion every one of buddhists.

    In the same way, Tamils continue the centureis old fight against North indian Brahmins as wanted by the christian Missionaries. So, tamils always cheer tamilnadu, ask everything from sri lanka and blame every thing on sri lanka until they have tamileeelandu in which they exploit tamils and blame every thing on colombo and can exploit colombo.

    We are taking about tamil refugees in tamilnadu. TN govt does that, in order to exploit the central govt. If tamils want to stay in tamilnadu why do they get letters, come and settle in colombo. Because, they don’t want anything to do with TAMIL. So, they don’t go even to north. Instead settle in colombo.

    Sorry ,I think You got it wrong those people are not indian Tamil they are Srilankan Estate Tamils ( whos Parants & Great parants born in Srilanka – have SL Birth certificate & IC).
    Also 150,000 in TN refugee camps are Srilankan (by UN report), Soon or later They will come back to their Mother lanka ( same as me, I will bring all my hard earn money (from cleaning job, petrol station jobs) to my Mother land & will die in Lanka not in UK ), We Srilankan do not want any out sider including TN Actors ( CM Jeya) or Western Whites.

  20. jayt Says:

    what Sri Rohana is telling not insult but absolutely right, estate Tamil were brought to Sri lanka and were forced upon Sri lanka to accept them. First prime minister of sri lanka asked britain to bring them back but britain refused and gave power to india to decide. So what happen? Sri lanka did not have enough military power to counter india and send that tamil labours back to tamill nadu and if sri lanka have the power today, they will send them back and sri lanka have right to so.

  21. Sri Rohana Says:

    Dear Andy Anna! We never against innocent tamils like you. You can anytime come back to Sri Lanka. Mother Lanka welcomes you. Majority of Tamils are living in Sinhala areas and innocent tamils are always our brothers and sisters.
    But we are not happy with the attitudes of GTF, LTTE and eelamists. They are behaving in enemy attitudes. As a Sinhala son I have a right to defend my country from bogus allegations.

    He may go a day after YOU go back to Dalitstan. There are no bengalis in SL.

    See I have proven you are Dalitt. Your name says so. Mu-Dalitt means this one is Dalitt. What a name!

  24. andylingam Says:

    Sri Rohana
    I only can agreed your argument becuase Westernes are accepting Srilankan Tamil reguees why not India (TN) also they have more responsibility as Our ancitralers ( Tamil ) from TN , similar (not same) argument We economic refugees argued with these English man ( formar colani) instead of Franch or Germany.
    As we both know We all are Economic regugee who ever mother had gold Thali will gone to Wertern contry others gone to TN etc… .

    but Rohana even TN allowed to live in TN , They (SL born) will come back to Mother Lanka as We do not have LTTE terrasict in our Lanka Now .

    Sri Rohana, FYI,We Tamil will live with Sinhalese becuase majority of them are true innocent buddish people.
    a saying Tamil , Sinhalavan vella ellan bal entru ninnaikiran ( Sihalese think what ever white is Milk).

    Sri Rohana / Lorenzo
    Do not worry about these GTF, LTTE and eelamists these people last 33 years earned easy money , but they are headless chichen , they won’t savived long ( may 2 or 3 years more…)

    Your ancestors were brought to Sri Lanka by Portugeuse from kerala or Mozambique as coolies because they were DALITS by every definition.

    Go and check the families of Mudalis. You will endup in every Royal House of Sri lanka and Tamil nadu!

    Just because I use a European handle does not mean I’m Portuguese.

    My ancestors were Sinhelas all along.

    There are no royal houses of Mu-Dalits (that’s what you are).

    Your name says you are Dalit (and your conduct too!). Mu-Dalit = this one is Dalit.

    But have no fear. In SL even Mu-Dalits are treated with human dignity. :)

    New year:
    Tamil Hindus and Sinhala Buddhists celebrate same day as new year. That is the UNITY Sri lankans follow for many centuries. The Hindu Calender is still followed and valid. Some Parangi Buddhists may cry to abandon the day!
