CONTAINER TERMINAL & TAMIL MARCH – CONNECTED BY BELIEF?
Often when one is focused on the benefits of position
status and money, one pretends to be lawful. When such a person thinks s/he is ‘free’
s/he loses her/his inhibitions and tends to behave as if one’s word were the
Yesterday, I highlighted as follows:
[President Gotabaya Rajapaksa on Thursday told Sri Lankans that he was the leader that
searched for and openly flaunted his strong Sinhalese-Buddhist roots to say that he was the right man to hold the highest office .. in the country.
Addressing the nation on the occasion of Sri Lanka's 73rd Independence Day, Rajapaksa said, "I am a Sinhala Buddhist leader and I will never hesitate to state so. I govern this country in accordance with Buddhist teachings’..] Times of India
My recent contribution to Australia’s
Immigration Policy would help interpret the above in an independent
As a leading nation in
the global context, I feel that Australia is responsible to ensure that
Sovereignty of the Human Values is maintained through Permanent Immigration
from one place/country to another.
It is interesting that
the ‘Partner’ category within ‘Family Stream’ ranks highest - at
72,300, in 2020-21. This confirms the importance of higher common law which often begins with marriage to form a family. The partner thus becomes the first member of wider society. Those who successfully mind-merge through such partnerships contribute strongly to Common structures in wider society.
Equal ‘other side’ is therefore essential in
Democratic systems. A family that is democratic would promote democracy in the
community and society it is part of.
In democracy, the tendency to take ‘freedom’
before one matures is a strong challenge against maturity and independence. One
who is indebted to a person or group is not independent. When such a person
thinks s/he is free and expresses it in words and/or actions, we have to
produce the other side if it is not to slip into the Universal Energy and add
to Global frictions and wars and/or to global disasters such as the current
The rule of nature is such that it manifests
the Equal ‘other side’ when we manifest on our own, when we are indebted. It is
to prevent such catastrophes that we have laws to regulate our thoughts, expressions
and actions. To the dependent person, the word of the person/group one is
indebted to becomes the law. In a family, this is the person who sacrifices
most for the common good. Likewise in a
In a democratic family between the two
partners, this is taken to be the other, until known otherwise. In a nation,
this is the government or its Equal Opposition. ]
When the Sri Lankan President made the above
declaration, on the strength of his position status – and it is not opposed in
the environment in which he made that statement – it would confirm – that the
other side manifestation was being facilitated at the People’s level and v.v.
The March from Pottuvil in Eastern Sri Lanka to
Polikandy in Northern Sri Lanka – began on 03 February – one day before
Independence Day celebrations by the Lankan
As per 2020 Parliamentary elections Pottuvil
voted for SJB whose chairman is Mr Sarath Fonseka who led the Government
military to victory against the LTTE. SJB is currently the leading opposition
in National Parliament. As per my knowledge, the dominant religion in Pottuvil
is Islam. Hence, one is entitled to conclude that the March is a protest
against the way the Easter Bombing inquiry is being conducted by the current
government and also the enforced cremations due to Covid19 which were seen as
denial of rights of Muslims. To the extent both are in breach of the Sri Lankan
Constitution, the March is legitimate in balancing the wrongs by a government.
Significantly, Pottuvil is between two points
in the above map of Pada Yatra (foot pilgrimage) about which Kataragama.org reports
as follows .
[The great ones who walked the Pāda Yātrā include,
notably, the renowned fifteenth century Tamil psalmist Arunagirinathar, who
composed at least one Tiruppukal hymn at Kirimalai (near
Kankesanturai in the Jaffna peninsula), another at Tirukkonamalai (modern
Trincomalee) and fourteen at Katir-kāmam, '(the place of) brilliance
and passion', i.e. Kataragama. More recent well-known pilgrims have included
Palkudi Bawa and Yogaswami of
Nallur. The following account of Nallur Yogaswami's pilgrimage to
Kataragama remains typical even today]
I fully believe that when we walk along the same
pathway of Realised Souls, we also get
Hence I identify with the March as Hindu Foot Pilgrimage.
Kirimalai is also the place where the memorial ceremonies honoring fathers are
conducted by sons.
One then goes to Polikandy in North which is presented as follows by
[Polikandy is a town located in Jaffna District, Northern Province, Sri Lanka, governed by an Urban Council. Cities, towns. Places near Polikandy include Point Pedro (which is an extreme point of Sri Lanka), Valvettithurai, Karanavai and Karanavai North. Polikandy has
three divisions: Polikandy East, Polikandy West and Polikandy South.
legendary town is well known for being the birthplace of Thillaiyambalam
the Chief Commander of the Sea Tigers of
the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam or
the Sea Tigers, a Tamil nationalist militant group that
waged a war for independence in the North and East of Sri Lanka. This town is
also the place of birth of the leaders of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam,
Lieutenant Colonel David, Castro (Manivannan) and Kadaapi (Athavan). Polikandy
was the first town to introduce the Sea Tigers.]
here to my mind is to Point Pedro which is the Northernmost point of Sri Lanka.
From Pottuvil to Polikandy, is coastal area.
important question is – did the Government damage the belief based connections of
Hindus who are bound to India through Lord Muruga ; belief was strongly confirmed by Saint Arunagirinathar?
in mind, one needs to question whether the breach of agreement in relation to
Eastern Container Terminal (ECT) empowered Natural Forces towards strengthening
Northern ties with India to safeguard the provisions of the 13th
Amendment which cost India the life of its own Prime Minister. The release of
those accused in the case is now with the President of India. But Tamils from
Sri Lanka seem to have been ‘forgotten’ including by those marching from Pottuvil
war was Natural between two ‘free’ forces – neither of which was bound by common
law. The actions have been taken outside
the boundaries of common law and hence one needs to look through the pathway of
Belief. The breach in relation to the ECT
indicates a strong warning in relation to the 13th Amendment under
India’s leadership. If the 13th Amendment is tampered with – the powers
of Tamils would naturally strengthen India in the regional war. Keeping the
Coastal areas in North & East under Tamil control would contribute towards
this. One who abandons the rule of law, risks the attack of Natural Forces.
