Tamil Eelam – is Dowry – Not Muthusum
I believe that yesterday’s experience is the foundation of
today’s natural law. The natural law connects us to each other without any
effect on our part. Written laws that are within such natural laws, would
promote self governance.
In Democracy, the electorate is the smallest unit
representing sovereignty. In NSW, Australia, during Covid lockdown – the State
Government locked us into our respective Local Government Areas (LGAs). The rules were set by State government and not
the Local Governments. This confirmed
that the State government did not have confidence in local governments to lead
their respective communities or that the State Government desired to directly control
the Covid issue. In my suburb of Coogee, I take the State Government’s rules
seriously not because I see direct logic in it but because it comes through a
higher common structure. Then my ‘experiences’ are also measured at that level
and go straight to the law-making Energy at that level. To the extent I feel ownership
in Coogee – it would become Common Energy of Coogee.
I learnt about the importance of appropriate Common measures
through my painful experiences in Northern Sri Lanka where the oldest Common
measure is Thesawalamai Customary law. My book written in Tamil has been named ‘Jaffna
is my heritage and not my dowry’ It also holds the key to our solution to our Ethnic
problem in Sri Lanka.
Yesterday I quoted Tamilnet - “I
cannot support Tamil Eelam, but I won’t deport the boys,” Ms Gandhi had told Mr
Kalyanasundaram, according to Pulavar Pulamaipithan.’
couple of non-Tamils who are in my Sri
Lankan group responded as follows:
1. ‘Australia should not support any
armed group past or present, that fought against a democratically elected
government for the main aim and purpose of creating a separate state.’
country or state should support armed terrorism whether it be in Sri Lanka or
Lanka is a multi-national country where people of all religions, caste, creed
or ethnicity, should all live in peace and harmony respecting each other’s
Does not confirm the Truth about Australia due to Australia
recruiting migrants knowing they were LTTE members.
Above does not
reflect the consolidated picture of current
Both lack the experience that the theories can measure. As
per Australian experience at the time of recruitment of migrants during war –
the Sri Lankan government was wrong as per the Australian measures – especially
in terms of Equal Opportunity laws. As per the global measures (2) above lacks
the multi-cultural minded government to
take such a credit and hence the measure is wrong.
During the Tamil Diaspora meeting – Mr Ravi Kumar –
Coordinator, British Tamil Forum was a keynote speaker. In essence he proposed
investigating the reason for atrocities from 1948. This means after departure
of British as rulers. The hidden agenda there is British rule and not Tamil
The other keynote speaker
was Mr Arun Gananathan – lawyer , Birnberg, Peirce and Partners – who highlighted
opportunities through Global Judicial system. His presentation would have
earned the British Tamil Community a significant position in ICJ.
The experience on which
the above group started the meeting was LTTE’s Thileepan who was crowned the
LTTE’s political leader of Jaffna Peninsula. Given that no Tamil Politician in
current Parliament of Sri Lanka has disputed this – one has to accept it as them
Given that majority
Jaffna Tamils practice the system of dowry as part of the distribution of
Commonwealth – one has to use Thesawalamai law as the measure most appropriate
measure for the whole of Northern Community. What does that law say in this
1. Females (daughters) inherit from senior females (mothers)
2. Males (sons) inherit from senior males (fathers)
3. Current earnings (Thediya Thettam) is to be distributed as per
the rules of those who earned them.
On the basis of the
above, distribution to daughters when they get married is known as Dowry. The
daughters who take dowry lose the right to share in the residual wealth which after
dowry is the new commonwealth. The daughter who accepted dowry has the duty to
develop her own family structure and is not entitled to participate in the
governance of the family she separates from. Majority Indians would also
identify with this structure.
Until the armed militancy
Tamil politicians opposed Sri Lanka being claimed as Sinhala nation. This Opposition
was confirmed through Vaddukoddai Resolution 1976. It was confirmed by the
People in 1977 – when Tamils became Equal Opposition in Sri Lankan Parliament.
That is the natural heritage.
LTTE claimed separate
state. This is dowry from the Commonwealth. All those who base claims on LTTE
achievements are heirs of that new branch. They have no right to participate in
governance of Sri Lanka. This includes the likes of Mr C V Wigneswaran who
often refers to ancestral values after
referring to LTTE leader as Thambi (younger brother). Through
that relationship, Mr Wigneswaran made himself the leader of that branch of the
Tamil community that broke away to form its own branch. Such leaders had no
right to come to the Common Parliament of Sri Lanka – until they expressly show
remorse for supporting Separatism.
Most Tamils would know
about Kamathenu the female cow – with endless
flow of milk. Kamam = lust and Then(thehn) = honey. The message is that such a
cow voluntarily blesses us with endless flow of milk that tastes like honey. Kamathenu lives in the homes of sages who through
renunciation of benefits realise bliss.
In terms of knowledge –
what happened is lust. The independent intelligence within that – known as
wisdom /Gnanam – is the sweet honey in that knowledge.
