Aspirations might be used to describing the ambitions which are too broader and at present, they may look limiting wishes, latter, they would go like crying of kids to bring the moon. Aspirations of any nation will go to a broader area, from the point of view of Tamils of Sri Lanka who wish to have a separate country in Sri Lanka, also could include to aspirations. It may be defined as two countries one nation as assumed or planned by Norway. The term that uses in the study of the principles of economics describing wants that could not satisfy in the lifetime of a person may similar and they are broad expectations.

Indian interpretation of Tamil aspirations of Sri Lanka like needs as explained in the study of economics. Needs are defined as basic needs such as food, clothes, water, air, etc.  Aspirations of people could be further defined as desires of human metempsychosis, it is so broader and expands indefinitely until a person attains Nirvana. Why this issue is going on like a beggar’s wound and is it a technique that the Indian intelligence service uses to control Sri Lanka?  When considering the Indian point of view of the Tamil aspirations of Sri Lanka seems that Tamil aspirations might amplify like desires of human metempsychosis as indicate in Buddhism and Hinduism. However, India has limited the definition of Tamil aspirations of Sri Lanka as legitimate aspirations that are in the interest of Sri Lanka as well as India. The needs of a person in the study of economics and show the broadness of the term to mislead all communities in Sri Lanka.

The Indian definition of legitimate aspirations of Tamils has further described that it could be achieved through the process of reconciliation and the full implementation of the 13th amendment to the constitution. The Indian definition of aspiration has limited Tamils in Sri Lanka to a restricted area, and this should be logically considered by the government and people of Sri Lanka. It is not a valid reason to formate a new conflict between India and Sri Lanka. As it happened in history, India and Sri Lanka must work like friends and cooperative nations.

When deeply analyzes two points India considers it is fulfilling, the legitimate aspirations of Tamils of Sri Lanka. It seems they are too vague and they are involved in vicious politics that Sri Lanka relegates to obscurities as well as Tamils are taking to a mental world. Many Sri Lankans who aligned Sinhala extremism have difficulties understanding the issue and Indian views on the Tamil aspirations of Sri Lanka are clearly understanding and supporting the practical implementation of policies for Tamil aspirations. 

India is fully aware of the attitude of the majority of Sri Lankans regarding the Tamil aspirations, and while the human rights session was going on in Geneva why this issue has emerged for a long time may be an obvious secret to the world. China has nicely expressed its views regarding the UNHRC report and it would have dismayed participating other countries. The UNHRC also had difficulties explaining the truth to the world because it involves disguised politics between India, Sri Lanka, China, and Western countries. The nature of politics in India is to use various issues from time to time keeping Sri Lanka under the control, and this issue might go further a century as long as India wants to do it.

Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim, and many others in Sri Lanka have international ethnic classification as Indians, and these people have deviated base on the language used or religion believed and practiced, but there is no biological or anthropological difference between them. The language used by Sinhala people defines as an Indo-European language and the Tamil language consider as a Dravidian language. The origin of two languages may associate with adventures in history and since the era before Christ, it had not been a critical issue for people to live together.    If one language uses them all are included in one nation. If India respects universal human values it must not allow continuing aberrations on baseless factors and the responsibility of India is to reject such differences against human values and express its opinion to treat all as one ethnic group.

The Indian strategy within India is treating all different communities in the country as one nation, and why such a firm policy could not be equal to Sri Lanka.  The secret of the Indian policy is dividing and controlling the country. India might need to expand the policy for surrounding nations as the complexity in Indian politics may need such actions. India has a policymaking mechanism that is beyond party politics and that is why it can see although the government change neither foreign policy nor attitudes towards neighboring countries are changed.    

Sri Lanka is in the process of drafting a constitution that could incorporate the legitimate Tamil aspirations of Sri Lanka, and how this aspect should be worded in the new constitution might need to know by people of the country. The wide spectrum of politics in Sri Lanka seems hungry to look at the draft of the constitution because it would be a drop of water in the desert for the opposition to survive. As people are fully aware of politics played for the constitution drafted by the yahapalana regime after 2015 this time also may be political manuring to oppose for the new constitution.  Such problems might be supported by the Indian intelligence service and the government of Sri Lanka must egghead to Buddhist monks, political parties, intellectuals, and others who are vulnerable to getting caught in foreign influence, financial incentives, and NGOs.

The term, people of Sri Lanka include all citizens of the country. The Indian aspect of the legitimate aspirations of Tamils of Sri Lanka means the Tamil citizens of Sri Lanka and clearly, it excludes the Tamil diaspora who are not citizens of the country. When interpreting Tamils India has used Tamil speaking people and it confuses sometimes because all Tamil speaking people are not ethnically Tamils and Muslims, Colombo Chetties and some Sinhala people too speak Tamil and they are not Tamils. Many Tamil-speaking people live outside Sri Lanka, and the government of Sri Lanka could not entertain the aspirations of all Tamils in the world.

During the war period with LTTE, Tamils without differentiating whether they were citizens of Sri Lanka or not supported the Indian point of view, and the most significant of the Indian assessment is that the Tamil aspirations should be limited to a framework of equality, justice, peace, and territorial integrity of Sri Lanka. In this way, India seems to attempted to wash hands preventing Indian points of view from India and apply such views to Tamil people living in Sri Lanka and excludes Tamils living in India.  This likes India holding the tail of a tiger and now it has difficulty releasing the tail as it has a risk that the tiger might create problems for India. The other vital point when India describing the abiding aspirations of Tamils of Sri Lanka has mentioned equality, justice, peace, and territorial integrity and it further shows that India has ignored the term unity. Does India has animosity to the unity of ethnic and religious groups in Sri Lanka? If the term unity has been ignored in the Indian process it could assume that India doesn’t akin to the unity of Sinhala, Tamil, and Muslim people in Sri Lanka.  Territorial integrity refers to the unity of the territory but it doesn’t refer to the people of the country. The Indian politics after independence in 1947, give the impression that India attempts to play politics with countries wherever Indian people are in, an example was Fiji when Rabuka took over power in the late 1980s, Mr.Rajive Gandi displayed his interest in playing politics with Fiji.
