- THE MOUTHPIECE OF TAMIL CINEMA?
‘The People may be distracted by ‘separatism’.
But Truth keeps revealing that the current president is focused on the ethnic issue
and seeks to get the right ticks from the global community.’

‘Many of us agree that the provincial
councils don’t have adequate powers, but have a historic context and have been
part of our constitution. Even then, the government is reluctant to hold elections
to them. Clearly, the President has set his eyes on national election , This
exercise (talks) is only to show the international community that he is a
leader willing to engage with the Tamils, that is all.’ TNA

Two members of the same Tamil community, with contradicting/opposing
views of the same person occupying the position of President of Sri Lanka. Who
is true and who is false?
The Hindu article is headed ‘No agreement in devolution talks with President Ranil Wickremesinghe:
Tamil National Alliance’
The Indo-Sri Lanka Peace Accord was an accord signed in July
1987. At that time, the two leaders were from two different nations. The
warring side was not from India. Or was it Indian Energy channelled
through the LTTE?
Right now, quite a few Indian Tamil Cinema groups have
become active in terms of the Sri Lankan war. Not one of them is known to be
part of the Sri Lankan Tamil community. To be Equal Opposition, the whole needs to be
One. The Tamil Cinema could therefore be the natural opposition of Sinhala
Cinema. But not so of Sinhala Politics.
On 14 May, I learnt through an Alumni group about the
passing away of Dr Sabaratnam Sivakumaran . It affected me as a professional because
of his sister who also was in my ‘batch’ of Chartered Accounting students and
was part of my hostel community. Such relationships are formed on higher common
Later, another respectable professional referred me also
to the eulogy headed ‘Dr Sabaratnam
Sivakumaran, the philosopher-physician’ by
As per a recent communication headed ‘Foreign
interference in the community’ from Australian government, we need to beware of
being brainwashed by foreign governments and other foreign groups.
The question needs to be asked as to whether one has
the right to enter into an agreement with another government about ownership
rights and contents of the constitution? The 13th Amendment to the
Sri Lankan Constitution was born out of the Indo-Sri Lanka Peace Accord. The LTTE was NOT a party to it.
The provincial council structure was part of the 13th
Amendment. It resulted in the killing of the Indian Leader by the rebels who
felt left out.
Any new ‘agreements’ on ‘ownership’ rights would lower
our level of governance. Those who
believe in the law, have ‘Buddhism
Foremost’ article in the Constitution. A believer in National law will be supported
by all those who genuinely practised or Opposed that law. Buddhism came to Sri
Lanka from India. Likewise, Tamils. Manimekalai who is the nucleus of the Tamil
epic, about which Wikipedia states:
The Manimekhalai palm-leaf
manuscripts were preserved and found in Hindu temples and monasteries along
with those of Silappadikaram. It is the only surviving Tamil
Buddhist literary work, though commentary and secondary Tamil literature
evidence suggests that there were other Buddhist epics and texts in the
Tamil language at least till the 14th century’
If Tamils therefore identify with Buddhism,
they would feel supported by Buddhist ancestry. If we identify with Hinduism, we
would feel supported by Hindu ancestry. The two would then oppose each other, after
we declared at Vaddukoddai that we were
politically independent of Sinhalese Nation.
This was tested in 2013 when
Mr C V Wigneswaran became Chief Minister of Northern Province went back ‘home’
to multicultural Colombo. His words and actions are not in harmony. As per the
Hindu report, Mr Wigneswaran who now
represents Jaffna recommended an interim Administration at the
Provincial level. This means he is not able to identify with Jaffna’s ancestral
Administrative Elders. I believe that I am an Administrator of global standards.
I therefore naturally oppose Politicians. This naturally eliminates political
weaknesses in the common group. Mr C V Wigneswaran reacted to Buddhism ‘to show’
the voters and showed ‘Hinduism foremost, damaging our investment in religious commonness.
In turn he missed out on the blessings of our Elders of British origin from whom
we inherited Public Administration of global standards. What a mess!
So long as we have common
souls like Dr Sabaratnam Sivakumaran, the philosopher-physician’ and
