The Hon C. V. Wigneswaran, Chief Minister of Northern Province –Sri Lanka – sharing status with Indigenous Tamil leader Pushparasa Jeevarasa of Thunaivi-Vaddukoddai


Bringing Back Colonial Rule in Sri Lanka

There is a saying in Tamil that the foe of a foe is a friend. That was how LTTE Eastern leader Karuna Amman became a friend of the Sri Lankan Government when he fell out with Northern LTTE Leaders.. That alone is enough to discredit the Government’s claim that the LTTE were Terrorists. Using this claim, the Sri Lankan Government repeatedly went to the International Community with the begging bowl. They claimed Sovereignty by eliminating that very International Community from the scene of their last act. Every person/authority  who did not claim that the LTTE were Terrorists at the time of LTTE activity, disqualifies her/him/itself from doing so – after their death. Likewise, every person who considered them to be heroes back then – loses their right to claim credits through the Political pathway. Where, a person/an institution is wrong for a particular pathway – that person / institution does not have the authority to find fault with anyone through that pathway.

I realized the true beauty of this Natural Law – through my marriages. First I went against my parents and the next time I went against the custom of one woman one marriage only. But by being true to the system of marriage that the Hindu Tamil community claimed to follow – I earned the credits through practice of its laws and principles. I just did not have the status that went with such practice. Now I realize that I was released from the clutches of those who were themselves not true to that system of marriage and therefore did not have the authority to allocate credits and debits. When they criticize us – it’s really an exit warrant from an abuser of authority.

Likewise, in terms of Equal Opportunity Laws – I was ‘failed’/ ‘dismissed’ by the Australian Government, Human Rights & Equal Opportunity Commission and the Judiciary. It hurt at that time. But I now realize that that was the exit warrant from false authority. This helped me group myself with others who were wronged in terms of  Ownership Titles. The same way one cannot be physically present in two places at the same time, one cannot be expressly marked right at the same time through two opposing systems. The penny dropped when I was preparing to argue my case in Colombo. I state as follows in this regard:

[It is submitted that if possession is required and therefore relativity is used through ‘Balance of Probability’ test – then it negates the requirement to show full physical possession. At least one physical entry by the Legal Titleholder is needed for the application of relativity that the rule of ‘Balance of Probability’ is based on. Where there was no physical entry by the opponent, observed and written, it confirms Independent pathway. Where there was entry but that was considered to be ‘out of order’ as per mind of the Prescriptive Titleholder the claimant has the authority to credit points through ‘Adverse to’ requirement. Where there is denial of any such knowledge – the only avenue available to the claimant is ‘Independent of’ criterion. By using the ‘Adverse to’ criterion the Legal team of the Defendant as well as the honorable judge – have denied the Defendant the claim of Independent pathway.]

Applying this rule to Sri Lankan war – to the extent the LTTE travelled along the ‘Independent Eelam’ pathway and realized ownership of their Land ahead of Legal Titleholders/Sri Lankan Tamils – they are like Indigenous Australians. Likewise JVP in Southern Sri Lanka, leading Sinhala only Nationalists. But in reality  both were ‘Adverse to’ the Government because they recognized the Government for the purpose of their own status with their local community. They failed the ‘de-facto’ system by taking position ‘above’ their local politicians. They have to be Equal and Opposite but not above or below to qualify for the position of Opposition. Politicians who were not true to their own pathways – lacked the strength to resist such Rebels who were showing the shortcut to status.

The UN has indicated that it wanted to probe the lead that the Sri Lankan Government used cluster bombs during the war. If the Sri Lankan Government was certain that it did not – it would facilitate this in return for the Global resourcing they received to eliminate the LTTE.  Their rejection of the move to investigate needs to be taken as confirming that cluster bombs were used during the war. The remedy is to take affirmative action to facilitate self-governance – not by Separation as Mr. Wigneswaran has called for – but to find fault with the previous Government through internal mechanisms. If UN entered the scene prematurely – it would take the opportunity away from the current Government led by a President who is genuine in the Political pathway and Prime Minister who is natural in the Administrative pathway. Tamils preceded the current Government when Tamil Politicians formed One Political Opposition with opposing factions taking Equal position within that structure. Where majority investment by Tamils is in Politics – rather than Administration – then Tamils would lose this Equal position in National Parliament.

Tamil Politicians who did not place the armed groups to positions below themselves – would tend to allow Tamil Nadu to use cultural power to ‘invade’ Sri Lanka through not only North and East but also Hill country Tamils. It is often not easy for those who live close to the Land to use the pathways to become National, Regional and Global.  But so long as they live locally as a Sovereign group – they are Naturally entitled to their own laws. Hence the customary laws of  Sri Lanka codified by Westerners. The mind of the Sinhalese regulated by Customary Laws and/or Religious laws would find it difficult to relate to another Custom / Religious practice. Likewise the mind of the Tamil in relation to those of other castes. LTTE empowered by lower castes could not relate to Tamil Politicians made up largely of higher caste Tamils. Likewise in Sinhalese areas where the effects of the caste system continue to prevail. The ‘no-caste’ system if enforced by law, would lead to lower standards through reverse discrimination. This was known to have happened within the Tamil Community.

No UN team can prevent another war in Sri Lanka through its Global pathways. UN staff have a different mind-structure to rebels on both sides. If one is found fault with more than the other – the UN would be demoting itself in terms of Equal Opportunity principles and values. If Mr. Mahendran – the Tamil Governor of Central Bank – is judged through the same law as Mr. Rajapaksa former President around the same time and the former is punished more than the latter – then Sri Lanka would demote itself to independent communities using Prescriptive Titles through ongoing rebellion against the Law and Order system abandoned by both side educated leaders after Colonialism.   


Independence from Colonial rule was like rebirth. Rebirth  does not eliminate our Truth. It only restructures it. The moment the British left – Sinhalese felt ‘free’ to do as per their own local pathways. By the laws of Nature they thus entitled Tamils who felt ‘free’ of the British also to do likewise. Only those who paid their respects to British progressed to becoming Global. They are the real UN that would escalate the governing standards in Sri Lanka.

Gajalakshmi Paramasivam- 29 June   2016  



‘More Equal Before the Law = Separation After the Law’

I was thinking about the pollution by the officer in uniform – ‘Pada Yathra to Kataragama begins from the North’ article by itnnews.lk when  I my attention was drawn to the Island editorial headed ‘More equal before law’. Paatha Yaathrai (Foot Pilgrimage) brings to my mind, Saint Yoga Swami and Mahatma Gandhi both of whom have led my mind to Independence. Hindus, like Indigenous Australians, consider Natural Elements to be sacred. Land / Earth is one of them.  To my mind, they are vessels holding true Energies – positive as well as negative. Hence Hindus do not wear shoes inside sacred places.

Kathirgamam, as per the family and community legends I heard and believe in – was a place that would make its own calls to the devotes of Skanda Murugan – the Tamil Deity. During the olden days – there were no particular pathways leading to the Shrine in Southern Sri Lanka. One had to travel through jungles and those who ‘had the call’ usually walked. We have family members who did that ‘walk’. Saint Yoga Swami undertook this travel and hence when I hear Paatha Yaathrai my mind pictures Swami. I was called to Batticaloa for Tsunami Reconstruction work through this invisible network of Swami’s devotees. I ended up submitting my report to the President – with no effort on my part to go through the official process. Mankerni, the area served by me was one of the villages where the Yoga Swami devotees stopped during their Annual Paatha Yaathrai from North to South. The folks of Mankerni were largely descendants of  Veddas / Indigenous Sri Lankans. I worked out their connection to Skanda Murugan’s Consort – Valli of similar origin.

When I noticed the uniformed officer in the group of above mentioned ‘Pada Yathra to Kataragama begins from the North’ article I was naturally upset because to my mind, that was indiscriminate mix of two pathways. Using the fundamentals on which Prescriptive Title is recognized in Sri Lanka, I wrote in my draft submission:

‘In a Court of Law legal Title ranks higher than Title by possession – except when the possessor satisfies the requirements of  Absolute Ownership Value with no recognition whatsoever of another’s title in any form through any pathway.  This kind of Absolute value is demonstrated by full possession and complete independence OR adversity/opposition to any other form of Title.’

Belief based Title  is higher than the Legal Title when one Believes through physical possession. Hence the Law of Prescriptive Title. The more I think about it the more in awe I am of the minds that gave us this Law during colonial rule. This law is the parallel of customary laws which were given official and Equal recognition by the Dutch. But to be effective – they have to be either Independent of the official pathway or be Adverse to the official pathway. Tamil Eelam for example would have been valid if those claiming it took the Independent pathway. Vaddukoddai Resolution 1976 confirmed the ‘Adverse to’ Title which eventuated in Equal Opposition for Tamils in Parliament. I state as follows about this exception allowed in the case of Prescriptive Titles:

[The validity of this exception is highlighted as follows by Hon Justice Saleem Marsoof, P.C., J.  through  Storer Duraisamy Yogendra  &  Balasubramaniam Thavabalan  Vs. Velupillai Tharmaratnam:

[The decision of five judges of this Court in the Rajendran Chettiar case is not only binding on this Bench as it is presently constituted, but also reflects the practice of Court both in England as well as in Sri Lanka. As Lord Denning, M. R. observed in Salter Rex and Co. v. Ghosh [1971] 2 All ER 865 at page 866 – “Lord Alverstone CJ was right in logic but Lord Esher MR was right in experience. Lord Esher MR’s test has always been applied in practice.”]

It is argued and submitted that the above principle applies also in the case of Prescriptive Rights – where the Absolute value of Belief developed through an independent or adverse pathway, is respected and recognized as being of higher value than the legal title which often includes theory which may not be applicable to local environments. It is submitted that Logic is relative whereas Belief is Absolute in value. Where theory is practiced – the two would meet at the destination.
To be accepted at that level – pure of legal logic – Experience based Belief needs to stand on its own rights and not be relative to the logic of any alternate system – in this instance legal title. It is submitted that to be entitled to ownership through the logic based legal pathway – one does not need Belief. Knowledge that one has satisfied the requirements of the legal pathway alone is enough.
To claim Prescriptive rights on the other hand, one needs Belief which is confirmed by wholesome possession – as in blind faith. It is submitted that the  facts before the Court were not constructed to satisfy the above requirements of the law.
It is submitted that the Conflict between the Legal Title and the Prescriptive Title is addressed by the Prescriptive Ordinance by  requiring the claimant of Prescriptive Title to have completed the pathway and have reached the Destination of  Realised  Ownership
It is submitted that one such requirement is to travel independent of the Legal Titleholder. Hence the Requirement of Independence or Adversity. Where the Claimant claims no knowledge whatsoever of the Legal Titleholder/s, the requirement of Independence needs to be satisfied. Where the Claimant does confirm knowledge of Legal Titleholder/s and their activities in relation to ownership of the property – the requirement of Adversity needs to be satisfied. It is submitted that the latter needs confirmation of Separation of Powers and Consciousness of Equal & Opposite status. ]
One can be Equal before the Law as per theory. But as per Belief – one is wholesome owner. Where the Belief developed through shared space / culture – the two are taken as Equal in Parliament even though one gets less votes than the other. Tamils hold such Equal Title due to Natural Energies rising to demote Sinhalese who were not true to their Administrative positions and who abused political powers by using authority without belief.

Wise Tamils would realize that Natural Forces of Truth have awarded them Half share of Sri Lanka due to this ‘Adverse to’ possession including through Vaddukoddai Resolution and through those who believed that they were fighting to retain their homes which they believe/d is / was theirs by long and uninterrupted, undisturbed ‘possession’. Governments that neglect remote areas and cultures – are naturally demoted by Natural Forces – especially where they ‘enforce’ their powers on those who have become ‘outsiders’ in reality but are taken as ‘insiders’ by law/theory.

The editorial was with specific reference to the ‘Bonds Issue’ by the Central Bank Governor who is a Tamil. The Editorial states:

Spokesman of the National Freedom Front (NFF) Mohammed Muzammil, one of the bitterest critics of the government, has been arrested and remanded for allegedly misusing a state-owned vehicle. Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera was arrested and remanded for keeping a baby jumbo without a permit. He was later bailed out. Leader of the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya Udaya Gammanpila has been arrested and remanded over an alleged racket affecting the interests of an Australian.

The question is why no one has been arrested and remanded over the mega bond scams which are believed to have caused staggering losses to the tune of billions of rupees to the state coffers. President Maithripala Sirisena himself revealed on the eve of the last parliamentary election that when the first bond scam was brought to his notice he had called for the removal of Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran from that post. It boggles one’s mind why no special presidential commission was appointed to probe that allegation. How the President would have reacted if such a serious allegation had been levelled against a key Joint Opposition activist is not difficult to guess.

To my mind – there is a simple answer – and that is fear of Natural Justice demoting the current leaders if they demoted Tamil leaders who are shows of  Ethnic Reconciliation or the consciousness that these leaders with global background are Believers in their own Independent pathway.  

The examples of those punished do not include any leaders who were ‘outsiders’ to Politics and are Tamils with Global experience. In some ways such Tamil Leaders have become ‘untouchables’.

Many members of the Tamil Community – would comfort and heal themselves by seeing such leaders in power. If Mr. Mahendran were to be treated roughly – that would put the clock back in terms of karma of abuse of power by Sinhalese politicians. To many who see the big picture – Mr. Mahendran the individual isn’t of any particular value. The POSITION he accepted as a Political Appointee is confirmation that Tamil Administrators were more true to their jobs than Sinhalese who were strongly influenced by Politics.

The editor states:

[The general consensus is that the last government was corrupt to the core and its members lined their pockets at the expense of the public; that was one of the main reasons why the people got rid of it.]

‘The Public did not ‘get rid of the last government’. Truth did  - through Tamils of today as well as in the past to whom Sri Lanka is Home by Prescriptive Title. Every time an Administrator Abandons her/his post to become a Politician and the Citizen continues to do her/his duty through the other side of that position – the power to Demote the officer who abandoned post is allocated to Citizen. When even one believer uses that power, Manifestations happen to maintain the Equilibrium of Truth. That is the Power of One. When the Prime Minister went to Hindu Temples and did his Paatha Yaathrai – he would have acquired this Energy which drives from within.


There are laws in Sri Lanka which can be worked more by the likes of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe than by his predecessors due to global consciousness. Those who use intuitive powers would never fail themselves.

Nandanar was longing to see the icon of Nataraja in Thillai Nataraja Temple, Chidambaram.

Gajalakshmi Paramasivam- 28 June   2016  
Land Rights – Sri Lanka & Australia

The Press Trust of India reports as follows through its article ‘Nine Sri Lankan Tamils held for bid to go to Australia’:

[Nine Sri Lankan Tamils were arrested at Tiruchendur in the district today for allegedly planning to travel to Australia  in a clandestine manner, police said…….. Australia has been warning against such ventures, saying it would not allow people taking illegal route to enter the country.]

Given that I am in ‘Prescriptive Title’ mode due to my Land case in Colombo I have been thinking more and more about what our karma as a community says in regards to Land Rights – especially in war affected areas. It is also a vital component when restructuring war affected areas. Our Land in Colombo was ‘taken-over’ by  Sinhalese-Buddhist claiming Prescriptive Rights. The way events unfolded in Northern Sri Lanka, we started occupying my Traditional Property from my father’s side. Now I realize that the risk of acquisition by Prescriptive Title was high and that our true feelings of ownership drew us to be active in that land. It is also ‘cure’ for the disease of Abuse of Rights including through Tamil Only claims – the basis is similar to the Prescriptive Title claims.

I wrote in my draft submission in this regard:

It is submitted that where the criterion used to claim Prescriptive Title  is Independence– the credit points must relate to laws and principles independent of each other – for example possession without any knowledge of the activities through the legal pathway and therefore like two diverse religions, the two never meet until the user of the  lower pathway completes the journey to realize the goal of  ownership at which point there is complete ownership. Under those circumstances – one uses the property / facility without needing the endorsement of any other authority – including the officials of the government and/or the judiciary. It is submitted that the governing authorities need such owners to empower their own systems of Administration especially where there are wide gaps between theory of Law and practice of order. It is submitted that this is the reason why we have ‘user-pays’ system in the system of Democracy. Under this system one who has realized ownership as opposed to theoretical ownership has reached the destination of being one with the Institution / Nation / Land. Native Title Act 1993, came about in Australia under the leadership of Prime Minister the Hon Paul Keating after Mr. Eddie Mabo – an Indigenous Australian, fought to retain the Native Title to his Land on ‘Murray Island/Mer’ – overturning the previous conclusion that Australia was Terra Nullius.

Now I realize that when we are true to the path we take and reach the destination through that pathway without polluting it – we realize ownership of the whole. Then the Natural Forces in that issue come to support us. Hence my often repeated statement  that the Pariah (Toilet Cleaner) and the Vice Chancellor of the University of  NSW were the same. Back then I knew I was right and hence I used this expression – as per my culture – especially the story of Nandanar – of  Pariah Caste - to whom Lord Natraj appeared. The Natural Energies  also rise to place  in the demoted positions - those who fail to respect the true ownership of such realized persons.  Hence the dismissal of the Vice Chancellor who failed to recognize my ‘Native Title’ (inherited Accounting wisdom from Sri Lanka) at the University of NSW.

As per ‘The Island’ article - Relief for people who lost their lands during war– by Mr. V. Sivananasothy :

[On the initiative of President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe, the Prescription (Special Provision) Bill which was shelved for a long period had been revived by the Government to provide relief to the people who were forced to abandon their properties due to the situation that prevailed in the country from May 1983 to May 2009 and to enable them to claim their titles for their properties due to prescriptive actions of the illegal and encroached occupants, Secretary Ministry of Prison Reforms, Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs said yesterday.]

When we step out of the circle of ‘war-affected’ Community – and look at the picture – we show a picture – which shows on the one hand – folks who are running away to become Australian Tamils by Law on the one hand and those who have stayed on to claim ‘ownership’ by Law and/or by Belief based possession.

Many members of the Tamil as well as Sinhalese Diaspora who claim ‘Native culture’ to qualify as an influential community in Western Nations including Australia – have actually ‘Abandoned’ or sold their immovable properties in war-affected Sri Lanka. The Sinhalese occupier of our Colombo Land also sold the property. I never felt the urge to ‘sell’. I continue to fight to keep. Had the occupier been genuine – I would have accepted his prescriptive title. I had enough ‘Ownership-Energy’ to recognize that he was an unlawful occupant. This is because the property was bought out of hard earned hard saved money – in Colombo during times when ethnic divisions were strongly visible after the 1977 ethnic riots. A true owner is not allowed by the Land itself to abandon it. Where we were true to our profession/work – any investment out of those earnings would also be true in their value to us. Truth facilitates the Experience of the whole. Mere possession – be it physically and/or through legal pathway – influences us to ‘show and tell’ but not have the Experience.

So long as Australian Government is weak in ‘ownership-Energy’ to support its laws – it would attract illegal immigrants like the above Tamils to whom India would be more a home than Australia. To the extent Australian Government ‘rejected’ true migrants from taking their positions on Equal Opportunity basis – they weakened their investment in Democracy. One is entitled to take status through higher institutional position,  above a person who is yet to realize ownership. Likewise one who accepts lower institutional position despite having earned the higher position, and does so as per her/his needs in wider world, is not unjust. But when one who has realized ownership is allocated and / or takes lower position – Natural Forces are invoked to ‘Right’ the disturbance to Universal Harmony. Such Forces do not ‘wait’ to be asked; neither can they be stopped through mere surface prayers. They invoke themselves to place us at our respectively earned positions as per our respective minds.  In other words – the Lord comes to us to repair His own pathway to maintain the Balance of True Ownership – by matching Abandonment by Occupation – Measure for Measure.

Gajalakshmi Paramasivam- 25 June   2016  


Auditors & Public Administrators

As per the Colombo Telegraph article ‘Inside Story: Arjuna Mahendran Wants Samarasiri To Oversee His Functions, Until His Return’ :

Samarasiri comes with a checkered history himself, amidst allegations that he too had a hand in the bond scam, and had sided with Mahendran at several instances even going to the extent of refusing to release details in relation to the bond issuance to the Auditor General.

In a Democratic system, we all have the right to produce outcomes as per our respective positions and it is NOT our duty to provide information to anyone on the basis of their higher position. The system operates as follows:

Within an organization the Service Provider is entitled to take authority over Beneficiary and the Beneficiary has to demonstrate Respect for the Service Provider in areas where the Beneficiary is required to report and not publish her/his work for wider consumption. This was the system that prevailed in Australian Public Service even though the system of Government was claimed to be democratic. This seems to be the case even today within Sri Lankan Public Service.

Where the lower ranking person produces public outcomes independent of the higher ranking official – for example the LTTE within the Tamil Community and the Sinhalese soldiers who raped and killed outside the rules of combat during the war – and the system fails to extinguish such outcomes through appropriate remedies – the Natural ceiling of Authority happens at that level. Hence the changeover to Democracy which when practiced has the effect of minimizing the possibility of rebellion.

Public Service turns towards Business Unit approach – as current Sri Lankan Government has also indicated – where the authority-respect system fails to bring about One mindedness and therefore only One public outcome is produced by the CEO. Once we change over to the Business Unit approach – the supplier must produce outcomes commonly available to all and the consumer must pay the price. This makes them Equal and Opposite. For other purposes – they are entitled to stay away from each other.

Was Mr. Samarasiri – the Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka – required by his position to provide information to the Auditor General? To my mind, even the Governor of Central Bank has no such requirement in a true democracy where the two parties are Equal and Opposite. The Governor must do his duty as per his understanding of his position duty and produce outcomes that are available in common to all users – including the Auditor General. During my exchange with the NSW Auditor General in this regard – in respect of use of Clients’  Performance Indicators by the Audit Office I wrote as follows:

Most progressive organizations produce both – Financial and Non-Financial Performance Indicators. They  are both for MANAGEMENT purposes and reflect the THINKING and WORK_IN_PROGRESS. If you use Performance Indicators – then you are thinking with them. This is like the Executive Government participating in the Judicial process. Your Non-Financial Reports are the Legal records that these organizations are required to maintain – such as the Recruitment and Employee Assessment records. Where there is a big gap between Law and Practice – it requires YOUR staff to do the additional work. Taking the Performance Indicators distracts you away from this work. It is in breach of the Doctrine of Separation of  Powers. These organizations must be allowed to confidentially do the cooking and it’s up to your staff to do the spy work from the finished product to the LAW and not to their dreams and goals. You are seeking the short path because your staff are not trained to find out from the client staff what is going on. Staff often ‘hide’ information from you because you are third party. So they should. That way your staff would improve their skills. Using client-staff’s work-in-progress deters your staff from thinking through their own specialty = AUDIT on the basis of existing LAW. Then we would become a uniform society instead of a diverse society challenging each other – you within the existing law and the operational staff towards tomorrow’s laws. Challenging leads to creativity – as you can see from me. Gandhi also said that the night he was thrown out of the first class compartment of the South African RAILWAYS was his most creative experience.
You need to get the client organization to publish their non-financial reports that are mandatorily maintained. Public service organizations primarily make goodwill. This can also be positive or negative – profits or losses. They are collected together and are balanced with the total costs through Common Funds. It will be useful for you to develop a standard dollar value for these legal requirements so the People can SEE and know the Truth. Your role is not to help them make a profit but to report whether they are and how much. How about doing one on UNSW? Or State Rail?’

The Bond Issue was a Business move by the current management of the Central Bank. It would be difficult for the Auditor General whose mind is structured as per the previous system of authority-respect arrangement to appreciate the business value of such activities. I went into Public Service from a rich Private Sector background  and hence the ability to identify with the flaw in the NSW Auditor General’s claim. Anyone who allocates blame on the basis of the old system is confirming lack of wisdom in the system of Democracy. This includes the author of the above mentioned Colombo Telegraph article. Once we produce independent outcomes – we are claiming Equal status and not higher or lower status.

Judiciary’s role in deterioration of Law & Order

As per the system of Democracy, the Judiciary is Equal to and is Independent of the Executive Government.  Sri Lanka’s immediate past  Executive Government was accused of acting in breach of the Doctrine of Separation of Powers when it dismissed the then Chief Justice – Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake. But this breach happens regularly when Politicians rule prematurely in Administrative areas and Judiciary compromise in dealing with members of the Executive Government. I learnt about the Doctrine of Separation of Powers from our Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission when I brought action against senior members of our Federal Government – including Mr. John Howard who was then Prime Minister. But I had wisdom in the value that this doctrine represented through its parallel in Accounting Profession which required separation between Management and Auditors. My communication with the then Auditor General of NSW, Australia, is in Appendix 1

In many aspects the actions of the Tamil Tigers are condensed form of this Political interference in Administration. In The New Indian Express article ‘Judge Ilancheliyan struck terror in the hearts of Jaffna's criminals’ – reporter P.K. Balachandran states :

[The people, from Chief Minister C.V.Wigneswaran downwards, pointed an accusing finger at the 150,000 Lankan troops stationed in the Northern Province supposedly to maintain law and order. If criminals were running amok, Security Forces personnel must be hand in glove with them, they alleged. Chief Minister  Wigneswaran kept calling for a total withdrawal of the armed forces to restore law and order.
But while most Tamils were content to put the blame on outsiders and did  little to change the situation themselves, Jaffna High Court Judge Manickavasagar Ilancheliyan decided to take the cudgels. Using a mixture of law, spunk and derring-do, he brought the crime rate down visibly in just a year and a half, winning plaudits from every section of society.
“The parents of the errant boys were among the happiest as they had totally lost control over them,” Ilancheliyan told Express.]

While most Australian Judges have the luxury of enjoying this Separation at the physical level, those in war-affected areas of Sri Lanka do not have such comfort. They have to be Public Administrators at one time and Judiciary the next. Many lawyers including the Hon M.A.Sumanthiran M.P. actively practice Law while engaging in Politics.

Where one enjoys official status one way or the other – one has to renounce that portfolio’s benefits – while acting in the other role. One who is driven by Truth and therefore Belief – naturally renounces – when s/he changes roles. Thus lay litigants driven by Truth – contribute to the true laws that drive the Natural Energies of a place.

I am appreciating this separation value more and more through my Colombo Land case which is being heard through Prescription Ordinance as well as my Jaffna / Vaddukoddai Testamentary case being heard through Thesawalamai Law. In my own submission which is yet to go before the Colombo Appeal Court and which was discarded by our young lawyer in the Jaffna High Court – I state:

[It is submitted that where a claim is confirmed/proven  on the basis of evidence, the return pathway is also valid.  The evidence is the visible and/or known part of the claim. The unseen soul of the claim is the Belief. One could therefore start with the claim and end up with the evidence or v.v. The two would be in harmony where the claim is valid.

The validity of this is highlighted as follows by Hon Justice Saleem Marsoof, P.C., J.  in Storer Duraisamy Yogendra  &  Balasubramaniam Thavabalan  Vs. Velupillai Tharmaratnam:

[The decision of five judges of this Court in the Rajendran Chettiar case is not only binding on this Bench as it is presently constituted, but also reflects the practice of Court both in England as well as in Sri Lanka. As Lord Denning, M. R. observed in Salter Rex and Co. v. Ghosh [1971] 2 All ER 865 at page 866 – “Lord Alverstone CJ was right in logic but Lord Esher MR was right in experience. Lord Esher MR‟s test has always been applied in practice.”]

It is submitted that the above principle applies also in the case of Prescriptive Rights – where the Absolute value of Belief would have developed through an independent pathway, is respected and recognized as being of higher value than the legal title which often includes theory which may not be applicable to local environments. It is submitted that Logic is relative whereas Belief is Absolute in value. ]

The above is the parallel of using Hybrid Court and yet did not reach the Jaffna Judiciary. The actions of  Judge Ilancheliyan, need to be beyond the duties of his position and qualify as ‘Service’ – for which they have to be Experience based. The Experience would be his own as an individual and/or as part of a community and on behalf of a community. I explain this as follows in the submissions in the Colombo case:

It is submitted that legal measures are visibly simpler due to work done by developers of legal systems being condensed and held as laws and Due Processes. To match the whole – a physical possessor has to be ‘seen’ to have done its equivalent to the part he claims to have possessed. It is submitted that it is the difference between calculating length by physically using a simple ruler as opposed to using a formula based on reliable theory. The two would be identical if they relate to their respective bases and reach their destination. Until then they must not meet. To be able to calculate physically – the claimant ought to be able to physically measure by himself without using any formulas. A legal title holder who has ‘abandoned’ the property would rank lower than such a measurer even if that legal title holder has satisfied all the legal requirements. The requirement to satisfy feeling of ownership does not include physical measuring nor physical occupation by the legal title-holder. There is documentary evidence on the part of the Plaintiffs of this commitment to own and to mentally-hold that property . The survey map by Mr. Thirunavukarasu is just one such documentary evidence.’

The judge at the primary level failed to give any recognition to this work by a true professional Surveyor Mr. Thirunavukarasu but took the word of the Sinhalese occupant who claimed that he had had the land surveyed by a surveyor. No independent, objectively measurable evidence of that was presented to court and the judged used the Balance of Probability rule to award judgment in favor of the Sinhalese occupant. But by representing myself I am identifying with evidence that would defeat this Trespasser in a just Court. That is the best we can do. I am learning that when we do our best and do not draw lower benefits – prematurely – Natural Energies carried as Heritage – come to our support to have the real Experience – irrespective of what the Court rules. But the moment we take revenge – at the lower level – as the Tamil Tigers did – we block the pathway to escalating to that Natural level above all other Courts of Justice.

Confirmation that my work in the above matter as well as through the Sri Lanka Reconciliation Forum Sydney, came earlier this week when Dr. Gamani Goonetilleke, the younger brother of our Barrister wrote back informing me that our barrister the Late Nehru Goonetilleke was his brother. To me that was a Spiritual connection which filled my husband and I with much joy. It confirmed also that our contribution to the above forum was raised to the higher level. Below is the passage I wrote in this regard:

[The parallel in my case to redeem my Land in Colombo is the Judge ruling in favor of a Sinhalese-Buddhist  who confessed to being educated only up to grade 2 – claiming prescriptive rights over my land – the period including the war period when my representative relocated to Jaffna and hence we could not provide subjective confirmation of our physical entries. But there were documents confirming that the occupier was lying about his occupation. Had I limited myself to thinking that this judge was biased due to my ethnicity and therefore ruled against me – using ‘Balance of Probabilities’. Even though I felt this to be the case I recognized also the lengths to which our barrister – late Mr. Nehru Goonetilleke with his team - Mr. Mahendra and Mr. Manoharan – worked with commitment to bring out ‘facts’ through the legal pathway. Had I given recognition to the Judge’s ‘bias’,  that would have overridden / extinguished Mr. Goonetilleke’s contribution through a mind that already was above racial bias. So, I dug deeper and found documentary evidence to confirm that the occupant had lied and misled Court.]

The above merger is a true Sri Lankan heritage developed by those of us using our experiences beyond our position responsibilities but do so within our own Truth. Those are the Natural heritages that those who believe in us are empowered by beyond time and place. Gamani and I had to lose some of our status and opportunities with our respective ethnic groups towards this merger. Likewise the above multi-ethnic legal team led by Mr. Nehru Goonetilleke. Similarly – Political leaders need to sacrifice political gains and opportunities to raise themselves to the higher Common level and do so of their own free will.

Without such sacrifice – Jaffna will continue to be strongly influenced by ‘possessors’ than ‘governors’. Owners by Possession can defend themselves but not attack others. The moment we condone physical possession above mental ownership – we start separating ourselves towards isolation. This is confirmed in low caste areas where brawn rules over brain. I live in one such area and share my higher Energy  through business activities. That Land around our family temple does the rest and that to my mind,  would go towards preventing future armed wars in Sri Lanka. When each one of us uphold the Truth through our respective positions and spaces – there can be no greater power than that to protect our Sovereignty. If we do so as a community – we become Independent and do not recognize any other authority. That is the one-way political path. If we depend on the other side to find fault with – then we need the other side to find fault with and therefore to feel Equal to them. Such feeling is confirmed through us showing the ‘other side’ the moment their side is published. Hence the requirement for Prescriptive Title to be Adverse. Those who take the Sinhala Only or the Tamil Only pathway need to not recognize and be distracted by any other authority. Those who take the Sri Lankan highway – need to show Adversity at Community Political level and Equal Opposition at Judicial level. To the extent lawyers takeover litigants’ matters and use higher doze of law they isolate themselves from that community/society. Those lawyers also need the parallels of the cudgels used by Judge Ilancheliyan as part of  Judicial Administration.


Appendix 1
Mr. Sendt wrote on 20 November 2003 in response to my Public demand for him to pay his Dues as an Accountant::
Ms Param, I fully understand that auditors are not to participate in the management of the entities they audit. That is basic. What I said in my report is that external financial reports only give a partial view of the performance of many public entities. Such entities are not established to earn a profit or a return on assets, but to provide services to the public. So to give a true and fair view of how well they are providing services, they also produce non-financial performance indicators. If financial reports are required to be audited – to give the public confidence in their accuracy – then so too should the performance indicators. I fail to see how you can state that this is participating in the management of the entity.
Bob Sendt
NSW Auditor General

My response to the above indicates the deep wisdom I have in Audit and Compliance, largely based on my Sri Lankan training:
Thank you Mr. Sendt for  the prompt response. Most progressive organizations produce both – Financial and Non-Financial Performance Indicators. They  are both for MANAGEMENT purposes and reflect the THINKING and WORK_IN_PROGRESS. If you use Performance Indicators – then you are thinking with them. This is like the Executive Government participating in the Judicial process. Your Non-Financial Reports are the Legal records that these organizations are required to maintain – such as the Recruitment and Employee Assessment records. Where there is a big gap between Law and Practice – it requires YOUR staff to do the additional work. Taking the Performance Indicators distracts you away from this work. It is in breach of the Doctrine of Separation of  Powers. These organizations must be allowed to confidentially do the cooking and it’s up to your staff to do the spy work from the finished product to the LAW and not to their dreams and goals. You are seeking the short path because your staff are not trained to find out from the client staff what is going on. Staff often ‘hide’ information from you because you are third party. So they should. That way your staff would improve their skills. Using client-staff’s work-in-progress deters your staff from thinking through their own specialty = AUDIT on the basis of existing LAW. Then we would become a uniform society instead of a diverse society challenging each other – you within the existing law and the operational staff towards tomorrow’s laws. Challenging leads to creativity – as you can see from me. Gandhi also said that the night he was thrown out of the first class compartment of the South African RAILWAYS was his most creative experience.
You need to get the client organization to publish their non-financial reports that are mandatorily maintained. Public service organizations primarily make goodwill. This can also be positive or negative – profits or losses. They are collected together and are balanced with the total costs through Common Funds. It will be useful for you to develop a standard dollar value for these legal requirements so the People can SEE and know the Truth. Your role is not to help them make a profit but to report whether they are and how much. How about doing one on UNSW? Or State Rail?
Thank you again for responding. It has helped deeply.
Regards,
Gaja ( effectively in custody)

Reclaiming Sinhalese settlement rights in Tamil dominated Jaffna

Land Never Forgets

While preparing to present my arguments in Colombo Courts in my land matter,  I realized that the principles underlying prescriptive rights were more or less identical to the ones underlying not only whether Australia was ‘Terra Nullius’ when the British set foot on this soil but also in terms of the Sri Lankan ethnic problem as well as  the Tamil & Sinhala rebellions against the Government of Sri Lanka.  The fundamental question is about ‘ownership’ – whether one has ownership through Belief based Possession or through lawful pathway – which includes mental ownership. During such analyses I often think about Ms Shenali Waduge who asked me a couple of times as to what it is that Sinhalese had that we Tamils did not have? It is also the parallel of White Australian workers saying to me that my claim of Racial Discrimination by Central Administrators of the University of NSW did not seem right because they – White Australians also were unjustly treated by the same Administration. During those struggles – it so happened that I was charged with ‘Trespass’ for peacefully taking my place as an ‘Owner’. The way the University was made up at that time through natural forces– there could have been no other outcome. One of the highlights of that manifestation was that it was an ‘American-return’ of Australian origin who was trying to ‘show-off’ his democratic leadership skills – who had me sent to prison for Peaceful assembly. This Vice Chancellor overrode the assessments of  Australian Chancellors and hence invoked the Natural ownership powers to stand up against Pretend / Maya ownership authority. Natural Justice worked through other migrants and Australians in Governing position to oust the American trained Vice Chancellor. There is no law above the one that led to the discovery of Truth at that place at that time. The pathway to Truth is the highest law for that environment. The lesson to be learnt there is that we must first bow to the institution as it truly is when we enter the place. That bowing confirms our inheritance of previous owners of that institution/place. Hence the ‘Terra Nullius’ requirement for new settlers to Administer a place. In terms of Democratic Management – required by the University of NSW – the University was not ‘Terra Nullius’. It had some  with wisdom in Democratic Management and this included me – already expressing it in action. The new American return Vice Chancellor did not need to know me in particular. Had he bowed to the Common spirit of democracy already given form at the University –he would have been protected from his desire to ‘invade’ and show off.

With all this in my consciousness, I read the New Indian Express article ‘Reclaiming Sinhalese settlement rights in Tamil dominated Jaffna’. Analyzing the information in that article on the basis of MY experience of Jaffna, I identified with some problems on the side of Tamils claiming devolution of power. Our family also owned land in Navatkuli – at the center of the said  resettlement and I believe that my  connection is stronger due to this. The matter in summary is described as follows:

It was in late 2009, following the end of Eelam War IV, that the then government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa took the decision to aggressively push for Sinhalese resettlement in the North to nullify the Tamil militants’ policy of fashioning a mono-ethnic Northern province as a prelude to the creation of an independent Tamil Eelam. But the Tamils opposed Sinhalese settlements in the North on the grounds that they were planned, politically motivated,  colonization programs meant to alter the ethnic ratio there. 
Initially, 60 Sinhalese families from various parts of South Lanka were brought in buses and dumped at the disused railway station at Navatkuli, near Jaffna town. As the migrants were promised land and houses, 135 other families also made a beeline to Navatkuli.

Given the timing of resettlement – one could identify with  the Government’s  influence in resettling these Sinhalese families. The former regime did not have enough realized ownership power to override the confirmation of Tamil ownership of that land – through Belief based possession. Death completes the role taken by a person naturally through her/his own Truth. Irrespective of whether the Government forces killed or the Tamil Tigers killed – someone who died while preserving her/his ownership of the place – confirms absolute ownership of that place and that person’s heirs have the natural inheritance to that place. This overrides all other Titles.

As per this article – amongst the group of Sinhalese re-settlers there was one whose claim is reported as  follows:

Middle aged Malkanthi was the natural leader of the group. Big made, bold and bilingual,, she also  came from a family which had lived for eight generations in Jaffna.
“Our family had roots in Maniyamthottam and Kankesanthurai and I knew Jaffna district like the back of my hand,” she told Express at her house in the Sinhala Colony which now boasts of an impressive Buddhist temple.
Malkanthi’s family, along with several hundreds of other Sinhalese families, was  driven out by the Tamil militants in 1984, in the first of two major acts of ethnic cleansing, the second being in 1990.
“At that time there was a fairly large Sinhalese community in Jaffna. The Jaffna Sinhala Vidhyalaya had 250 students. Life was pleasant with the Tamils and Sinhalese getting along like family,” she recalled.  
But the thought of going back to Jaffna never left the Sinhalese.
“We were forever yearning to breathe the air of Jaffna and drink its water. We were people of this soil. We could never abandon it. I remember when I returned after the war, I burst out crying!” Malkanthi said.’

The question before us now is whether Malkanthi is claiming Prescriptive Title  or whether Malkanthi is claiming Legal Title which she ‘abandoned’ in 1984 or 1990. If Malkanthi was claiming Prescriptive title and left during the 10 year period she was developing her rights to Prescriptive Title – and /or before establishing it through the legal process – she does not have the legal authority to come back to that land. If Malkanthi was claiming legal Title – and there is another occupier claiming prescriptive title – then she has the authority to take legal action against such occupier – as I am doing now in the case of my Colombo Land. When the citizen takes shortcuts and hands the matter over to politicians – one does not have the authority to blame the ‘opposition politicians’ for problems. The above article reports in this regard:

Since Northern Province Chief Minister C.V.Wigneswaran kept harping on “planned Sinhalese colonization”, Malkanthi decided to confront him.
“I barged into his study and insisted that he hear me out.  He relented and when I finished, he admitted that he had been misled and promised not to raise the issue again” she claimed.’

If indeed Mr. Wigneswaran agreed not to raise the issue again – he is failing in his duty to those in Navatkuli who died in the war and have the responsibility to carry forward the war-experience including through claims of Prescriptive Titles to abandoned lands occupied/possessed by them. That is the way an individual participates through her/his Truth in Natural Governance of that land – which is an eternal power.

If Mr. Wigneswaran did agree as stated above – then he is revealing his lack of commitment to relevant Thesawalamai values which were spelt out as follows:

when any person had sold a piece of land, garden, or slave, &c, to a stranger without having given previous notice thereof to his heirs or partners, and to such of his neighbours whose grounds are adjacent to his land, and who might have the same in mortgage, should they have been mortgaged, such heirs, partners, and neighbours were at liberty to claim or demand the preference of becoming the proprietors of such lands.’

One may claim that the above provision of Thesawalamai, in relation to Land ownership – like dowry system, is no longer applicable. But where the official Government invokes its cultural powers – its opposition has the moral right and duty to match it through its own cultural system. The expression and use ofcourse needs to be not in breach of the laws of  the nation common to both cultures.

This is the reason why the Dutch gave us Tamils the Thesawalamai Law and the Kandyan Law to Sinhalese. Accordingly, Mr. Wigneswaran had the DUTY to explain the position of Northern Sri Lankans through the above Theswalamai values. Individual cases need to be resolved through the judicial process. But where a politician has knowledge of the Government’s Political move to ‘colonize’ – the Political leader who believes that her/his people are likely to suffer unjustly – needs to express her/his belief in opposition to such Political move. Such moves when they are strong enough to complete the true picture, would confirm our real picture of community ownership and therefore governance of that area and would naturally eliminate false exercise of authority through mere paper title. To my mind, the true values of Tamil rebellion are held in the position of Opposition Leadership in National Parliament, due to Natural forces rising in support to draw this picture through this generation also. If Customary Laws confirm Independent ownership by possession, the above status of Tamils in National Parliament confirms Adverse possession which needs to be Equal.

The value of Dutch as our Governors is carried by these Customary Laws. In many ways – Devolution of Power happened back then – in 1706 when the Dutch devolved power to the three main communities – Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims through express recognition of these Customary Laws. To the extent our conduct is in confirmation of these laws we are naturally entitled to outcomes of those laws within a community that is largely ignorant of Western laws. Those who practice Sri Lankan laws and values common to all – need to take Adverse position in Politics to give valid form to their true belief. Tamils who feel and/or think Sri Lankan – have claimed their Equal right to leadership in Sri Lanka through the support of these natural powers which are often invoked through our ancestors – including the Dutch, British, Portuguese and Indians.  


To the extent the former regime led by Mr. Rajapaksa practiced cultural values and beliefs to eliminate the Tamil Tigers – they entitled Tamils and Muslims to decisions that are parallel to their cultural decisions. Whether or not Mr. Rajapaksa had knowledge of such laws common to all who lawfully qualified as Sri Lankans – belief based values and their laws would operate through the believers in those values and laws, in the areas covered by such actions. By influencing the return of Sinhalese soon-after the suffering of Northern Tamils in the war – the government invoked those powers which extinguish any legal title – for there is no higher pathway than that to and from Truth. Truth looks after those who look after Truth. One of the Reservoirs of Truth is Land. Land protects those who believe in that Land. If the neighbors of Ms Malkanthi are accepting of her resettlement – that is a private issue. Taken as a group – Ms. Malkanthi’s decision cannot be extended to others. If the above account is true, then I conclude that the Judicial leader in Mr. Wigneswaran failed us due to being buried under Political thoughts and expressions. 
Whose Word do we identify with?

Prime Minister’s Duty v President’s Truth

I received response headed ‘Cometh the house, where's this man Ranil Wickremesinghe?’ from Mr. Malinda Seneviratne, directing us to http://malindawords.blogspot.com/2016/06/cometh-hour-wheres-this-man-ranil.html

The response was in respect to my article Bond v Arms dated 16 June 2016.

Mr. Malinda Seneviratne explains his assessment of the Government led by President Sirisena and Prime Minister Wickremesinghe  as follows:

[Regardless of familiarity or knowledge there are certain definitive statements that can be made of both.  Today, it is clear that few believe that this Government is serious about Yahapalanaya (Good Governance) because it is being observed in the breach.  We need not elaborate.  With respect to bonds, it is clear that the integrity of key players including the Governor of the Central Bank is severely compromised.]

To my mind, the closest – experience based structure through which  I can relate to  the current government’s leadership structure  is like that of Chancellor and Vice Chancellor of an Australian University. The Chancellor leading the Governing Council  is the parallel of the President of Sri Lanka under the current structure. The Vice Chancellor is the parallel of the Prime Minister in this structure.

One could also look at the respective positions and their duties through Prescriptive Land Rights which are a huge challenge in war affected areas of Sri Lanka which suffer from heavy emigration of old owners through legal title  and the challenges due to resettled new residents. The parallel of that in Australia is the Squatters’   Rights. The basic principle governing such laws is that Belief is of Absolute value and hence when applied  extinguishes legal title. Belief based De facto Titles are the parallels of Prescriptive rights. Likewise, belief based rebellion against official governments that have happened from time to time in Sri Lanka. Tamils have  ousted Sinhalese from the position of Opposition Leadership in Sri Lankan Parliament due to this value based on Belief.  Full Physical possession is essential to confirm this through Title. Those who do not need to ‘show’ could just believe.

If the elimination of the LTTE were based on Belief – the Sri Lankan Government cannot be faulted for its excessive use of arms  in breach of Global principles and laws of war. The power of Truth  would have risen / will rise to support them. Those who draw on Global Resources have the duty to respect and adhere to global principles in that project at that time. But that did not happen. Hence the blame of war-crimes hanging over the current government.

The question before us now is - Did the Bonds issue carry the parallel challenges to warrant dismissal of the Governor of Central Bank?

Is the power of belief of Sri Lankans directly affected by the Bonds issue absolute and therefore of enough value to override/extinguish  the net value that has accrued to Sri Lanka through the lawful pathway?
Mr. Seneviratne gives us some clue about his own thinking:

[How did Arjun Aloysius become a billionaire overnight?  Central Bank bonds.  Who is the Big Boss of Central Bank bonds?  His father-in-law.    There are dots and they will be joined.    There’s another possible joining of dots:  Aloysius and the Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake.  They are very good friends.  Now, a person claiming to be a senior officer in the Finance Minister, writing on the basis of anonymity in Colombo Telegraph and going solely on statements made by the Minister on the ‘Face the Nation’ show on Sirasa TV opines, ‘Karunanayake appeared to be unaware of the loss caused by the Bond issuance’.  Whether or not this is true, the Minister must surely know that there were massive benefits to his friend]

The parallel in my case to redeem my Land in Colombo is the Judge ruling in favor of a Sinhalese-Buddhist  who confessed to being educated only up to grade 2 – claiming prescriptive rights over my land – the period including the war period when my representative relocated to Jaffna and hence we could not provide subjective confirmation of our physical entries. But there were documents confirming that the occupier was lying about his occupation. Had I limited myself to thinking that this judge was biased due to my ethnicity and therefore ruled against me – using ‘Balance of Probabilities’. Even though I felt this to be the case I recognized also the lengths to which our barrister – late Mr. Nehru Goonetileke with his team - Mr. Mahendra and Mr. Manoharan – worked with commitment to bring out ‘facts’ through the legal pathway. Had I given recognition to the Judge’s ‘bias’,  that would have overridden / extinguished Mr. Goonetileke’s contribution through a mind that already was above racial bias. So, I dug deeper and found documentary evidence to confirm that the occupant had lied and misled Court.

During the process my belief that Truth shows Itself to one who is committed to Truth. Land is a Reservoir  of Energy – be it positive or negative. Any place where Truth is manifested becomes such Reservoir.

Mr. Seneviratne states in his website:

Words didn’t fall from the sky. They were coined. They contain histories. They are the landmark products of thought processes, the rest-signs of journeys. They move on, long after we die. They were something else centuries ago and they will be something else centuries from now as human being twist, turn, defined and redefine as appropriate to moment, place, culture and prerogative(s) at hand.]

It’s not the outer body of a word that stays on – but the feeling that stays on at that place. One may not say even one word – but the belief of one at the time and place where the word is said by someone else stays on due to that belief. Manifestations at that place are through such feelings from the past also. That is how places could be sacred or they could be haunted.

The basis of my discovery is my experience at the  University of NSW. Both Chancellors of my time confirmed their identity with my complaints and did what they could to invoke the Administrative and management processes. But not so the Vice Chancellors. The ‘legal’ title holders did not have enough strength to override the negative forces within the University system. Eventually after I left the University – the Administration suffered due to accusations of ‘scientific fraud’. The complaints were initiated by Asian migrants – the ‘group’ I was allocated to by those who persecuted me for doing my duty – the way I thought it was needed to be done. It took me a long time to appreciate that the moment the Chancellors delivered their verdict – I had won at that place at that time. They were owners with Absolute power. I was still looking for the endorsement of Administrators using relative power. Hence my pain back then. Now I endorse myself where I believe I am an owner.

Using that experience, I feel that given that Mr. Mahendran was elected by the current Government for Political reasons – to offset the damage due to war-crimes issue – removal of Mr. Mahendran through lower powers – would have damaging effects on the ‘reconciliation’ efforts happening in the nation.  If the President is to dismiss without Absolute Belief – it would be by a lower power due to the President’s lack of investment in global values. Prime Minister Wicremesinghe must make the decision  - not through logic of rights and wrongs – but through his own Experience – and the decision needs to be on behalf of Sri Lanka and not just the Central Bank and the Executive Government. Personalities have little value when we consider the whole issue. Mr. Mahendran’s appointment was taken as part of the solution to restore the losses in Tamil leadership due to ethnicity based discrimination. Premature use of ‘rules and laws’ to which Sri Lankan leaders did not contribute strongly over the past decades – is likely to dilute and extinguish the investments made by the current government in ethnic harmony.

The indicators of what can happen could be found in the  speech on the state of the implementation of the UN HRC's Resolution,  made by M.A. Sumanthiran, M.P. of Sri Lanka during his visit to the United States a few days ago:

[On the change that has taken place in the life of the Tamil People since 2015:
 Well, there is some change. The anxiety of having to face a hostile military of what we call the deep state - which is translated into military intelligence personnel prying into their private affairs and so on - a lot of that has changed. There is greater freedom to move around and so on. So people can genuinely feel the change - which is more freedom. But once that has been realised, day to day issues have not changed, primarily because most of them haven’t been able to recover themselves from the war devastation that is all around. A lot of them are not permitted to go to their own land which is occupied by the military and this is what I referred to in my presentation - that there was a promise to release all private lands which hasn’t been realized as yet. A small portion has been released in stages, but the promise was to release all of it in 100 days from January 2015 and one and a half years later about 70% still remains in the hands of the military and people can actually see that the rate has slowed down and there’s very little movement in that respect, and so their sense of frustration is growing. The military not only occupies people’s land but they cultivate it. They grow vegetables in it and they sell it at the market for lower prices than what the other famers are able to sell. So that has an implication on their livelihood. They are running 18 tourist hotels in those places. This is just one aspect. Return to normality in terms of getting back to normal civilian life has not yet happened to the people. People understand that they need to be patient and so on, but their patience is running out. We had an adjournment debate in Parliament just a couple of days ago and all our representatives from the North and East listed out various issues that affect the people and warned the Government that the goodwill may not last very long if these issues are not addressed. Our people feel very strongly that we brought about the change, we voted in full numbers to bring about a change, and that was done on certain promises which are yet to be realized. In a short answer, there was hope, there was initial euphoria, which is now turning into frustration and disappointment.  ]

Tamils who believed that they owned their homes and lived there over long periods but were injured and/or were killed by those with lesser values even though they may be in uniform – continue to live there – as eternal owners. The Energies of anyone in the group that caused those injuries – would invoke manifestations adverse to the official positions and opportunities.

Those who turn a blind eye to the plight of victims of war and give priority to cash issues, are confirming that they did not suffer due to the war and that the LTTE were not Terrorists to them.  

When we think about these issues – through our Truth – we have the higher experience. Majority of us would not be able to directly influence the Government through our words but each one of us would be able to influence the true Energies through our Belief which is born out of Experience. The ones we do experience through our words – would eventually form majority force – strong enough to defeat majority numbers lacking in belief.

Central Bank due to past weaknesses is a haunted place in terms of Administrative order.  The solution to the current problem should not be isolated to any particular person but needs to be addressed in the consciousness of Sri Lanka’s position in the global context.

Those who choose to use the Bonds issue as a ‘project’ need Objectively measurable evidence of wrong-doing on the part of the Central Bank Chief. That would protect the Government from weakening its own investment in ethnic harmony.

Gajalakshmi Paramasivam- 16 June   2016  

Bonds v Arms

The hot topic in Sri Lankan Political circles is whether the services of Mr. Arjuna Mahendran, the Governor of Central Bank ought to be terminated or not?  - [Daily News article Wanted (or Not) ?]

Given that the appointment of Mr. Arjuna Mahendran  was political – one cannot use Administrative base to remove such a person and claim to uphold Buddhist Dharma as required by Article 9 of the Sri Lankan Constitution.

As per the Daily News report:

[At a special meeting held last week, several SLFP Ministers representing the national unity government voiced their serious concerns over the re-appointment of Mahendran. Among them were UPFA General Secretary Mahinda Amaraweera and Lasantha Alagiyawanna. They said any attempt to re-appoint Mahendran as the Central Bank Governor would reflect badly on the government.
“Serious allegations have been leveled against him. The public has lost their faith in the person holding the top post of the Central Bank. We need to go back to villages and engage in politics. We cannot go before our supporters and justify such decisions,” Alagiyawanna said, speaking at the meeting.]

The above ministers were part of the group that had custody over  Administrative power when Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa was President. The parallel of the Central Bank Governor’s role  was held by Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa in the war issue. To my mind, it is no coincidence that the article has combined the two ‘projects’ as if they were one. Both heads were political appointments.

The war ‘project’ was actively discussed in villages and it has been an active political issue. The link by the villagers was made to Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa on the one side and Mr. Velupillai Prabhakaran on the other. If SLFP supporters understand the war issue enough to talk about it at home – UNP supporters would understand cash issues enough to talk about it at home – but only if there is opposition to the Government at the level the villagers relate to. They need to ‘see’ to understand and relate or have the actual Experience.

Villagers who silently endorsed the purchase of weapons that kill outside the Administrative processes, carry that karma. Their votes come with that karma.  This kind of karma  would prevent them from raising their thought order to the higher level of logic and/or making the connection between Cause and Effect – as in the system of karma. Only those who disciplined, punished and/or actively rejected such excessive investment in arms to kill their own – at the time it happened -  have the moral authority and the drive to criticize someone using public position to make a personal cash profit, in the same environment. To my mind, there would be very few SLFP supporters of that category.

The article lists the credentials of Mr. Mahendra. Sri Lanka has moved further and further away from the Administrative system that upholds law and order. Hence such high credentials would take leaders away from the villagers. Such leaders would work to impress outsiders through their cleverness. This often leads them to become Ravanas (those with physical and cash power). While Sri Lanka needs Ramas (those with enough goodness to share with the whole) the current government needs Cash Ravanas to block the resurgence of Arms Ravanas.

As per the article:

[Mr. Vijith Vijayamuni Soysa, addressing a meeting in the Moneragala district, lashed out at the attempts to make Gotabhaya Rajapaksa the deputy leader of the party. He said the former Defence Secretary was responsible for driving away Muslims from the SLFP at the last Presidential election]

Muslims on the other hand are not likely to focus too much on the Bonds issue. Their strength comes from their business skills. An Administrator would choose status and power above cash. A Business person would be ready to lose status and theoretical power to gain cash. That is what Democratic Project Management is all about. It starts from Zero Administrative power over the other side.

I was surprised to note the name of Mr. Chandra Jayaratne in the group that brought Fundamental Rights Application against Mr. Mahendran. I crossed paths with Mr. Jayaratne over email communication rules – during the period following the release of the report of Sri Lankan Airlines – which is of heritage value to me. As per my intuition – Mr. Jayaratne was on the side of Mr. Weliamuna – the main author of the report. Given that Mr. Jayaratne has demonstrated his inability to appreciate the need for zero base beginning in business, as  confirmed through their petition against Mr. Mahendra on behalf of the Nation.


Merely finding fault  does not entail one to Good-Governance certificate. One needs to have had the experience deeply enough to hold the Problem and the Opportunity in common. Such a person is a natural governor in that environment. Neither Mr. Mahendran nor Mr. Jayaratne have this quality in terms of Sri Lankan Nation.
