Northern Province CM Delivers as per his Judicial Expertise


In his news brief  dated 29 July 2018,  to the Media, the Chief Minister of Northern Province has addressed the issue regarding the appointment and removal of ministers within the Provincial Council.


The Sunday Times summarised the matter as follows:


[Northern Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran has filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court, seeking a ruling that a Court of Appeal order offering interim relief to a sacked provincial minister be declared null and void.
Last week the Court of Appeal granted an interim relief to Northern Province Fisheries, Transport, Trade and Rural Development Minister B. Deniswaran, after he claimed that the Chief Minister acted arbitrarily when he removed him from the board of ministers. He prayed that he be allowed to remain in his post.
The two-Judge Court of Appeal Bench of Justices K.K. Wickremasinghe and Janak de Silva issued an interim ruling preventing the recently appointed ministers from carrying out the petitioner’s ministerial responsibilities. It also cancelled the letter issued by the CM, removing the petitioner from the board of ministers unlawfully and pointed out that the CM he did not have the power to do so. The court also held that Mr. Deniswaran was duly appointed and he continues in his post as before.
The Court of Appeal also held that interim relief was granted on the basis that Mr. Deniswaran has not been removed from his Ministerial post according to law. The court also instructed the appointing authority — the Governor — to consider the Constitutional restriction on the number of Ministers and take suitable action, as it was pointed out there are 7 Ministers including the CM, in the NPC Board of Ministers, whereas the Constitution provides for only five Ministers, with the CM.]


Mr Wigneswaran has referred to Article 154F(5) of the Sri Lankan Constitution and has claimed that the ruling by the Court of Appeal could not be carried out.


Article 154F states as follows:



(1) There shall be a Board of Ministers with the Chief Minister at the head and not more than four other Ministers to aid and advise the Governor of a Province in the exercise of his functions. The Governor shall, in the exercise of his functions, act in accordance with such advice, except in so far as he is by or under the Constitution required to exercise his functions or any of them in his discretion.

(2) If any question arises whether any matter is or is not a matter as respects which the Governor is by or under this Constitution required to act in his discretion, the decision of the Governor in his discretion shall be final and the validity of anything done by the Governor shall not be called in question in any Court on the ground that he ought or ought not have acted on his discretion. The exercise of the Governor’s discretion shall be on the President’s directions

(3) The question whether any, and if so what, advice was tendered by the Ministers to the Governor shall not be, inquired into in any Court.

(4) The Governor shall appoint as Chief Minister, the member of the Provincial Council constituted for that Province, who, in his opinion, is best able to command the support of a majority of the members of that Council : Provided that where more than one-half of the members elected to a Provincial Council are members of one political party, the Governor shall appoint the leader of that political party in the Council, as Chief Minister.

(5) The Governor shall, on the advice of the Chief Minister, appoint from among the members of the Provincial Council constituted for that Province, the other Ministers.

(6) The Board of Ministers shall be collectively responsible and answerable to the Provincial Council.

(7) A person appointed to the office of Chief Minister or member of the Board of Ministers shall not enter upon the duties of his office until he takes and subscribes the oath, or makes and subscribes the affirmation, set out in the Fourth Schedule


There was no jurisdiction to find fault with the CM – not only because of Article 154F(5) which deals with appointments but also due to Article 154F (3) which provides immunity from prosecution, to all Ministers of  Provincial Councils – including the Chief Minister. Any decision that they make are ‘advice’ and not lawfully binding decisions. Section 154F(3) protection is the parallel of Section 154F(2) protection rendered to the Governor when using discretionary powers. When the law spells out the course – there is no room for use of discretionary powers.


We had a similar stalemate situation in regards to the issue of Certificates of Heirship without Administration – in Testamentary matters.   Our matter is important in relation to ordinary citizens – so they do not get cheated by lawyers and the judiciary.


On 27 July 2018, we wrote to the lawyer representing our opposition in the Northern Province Court of Appeal:


[Our Lawyer Mr Manivannan advised my wife when my wife contacted him during her last visit to Jaffna, that you needed to file the Appellate Court Judgment in Mallakam District Court  to obtain the Certificates of Heirship.
But we are not able to work out which Section of the Law permits you to obtain such an order after we objected.

It is my understanding that  where there are no objections the  authority flows from Section 531(1)(b)(ii) which states :
‘(b) If no objections are received in relation to any application received under section 524 or 528 in response to a notice published under section 529, on or before the date specified in such notice in respect of such application, the court shall-
(ii) make order for the issue of a certificate of heir ship in form No. 87A in the First Schedule, to each of the heirs mentioned in the application, stating also the share of the estate which each heir is entitled to receive, if agreed to by the heirs; ‘

As we all know, I did object and I have not agreed to the issue of Certificates of Heirship without any Administration.  My wife advises me that your application is fundamentally flawed because of the deductions to creditors shown in your Application. Also, when we are ‘ordered’ by the Court – that in itself becomes Administration. Section 531 applies only when we ‘agree’.
Section 532 however states:
532. Procedure where there are objections to applications under section 524 or 528.
(1) If any objections are received in relation to any application under section 524 or 528 in response to a notice published under section 529, on or before the date specified in such notice in respect of such application, the Court shall proceed to hear, try and determine such application in accordance with the procedure herein provided and may for such purpose name a day for final hearing and disposal of such application and may in addition, make such order as it may consider necessary under section 541 hereof.
Section 541 is about Administration pendente lite.
Hence we conclude that your Petition  cannot be executed without  clear orders in relation to issuance of Certificates of Heirship where objections have been raised through Due Process. Even though our objections were set aside / dismissed – Certificates of Heirship only cannot be issued without consent from us.  We conclude that you need an Administrator to execute as per your own Application.  ]

The lawful decisions to dismiss or appoint are by the Governor and not by the Chief Minister.   The decisions by the Governor of  Northern Province are bad in law.  The Governor needs to be suspended until this issue is sorted out by the Judiciary.

Australian-Indian Common Roots


Today’s mail brought directions to the article ‘Does Australia need a lesson in Indian economic strategy?’ at http://www.eastasiaforum.org/2018/07/29/does-australia-need-a-lesson-in-indian-economic-strategy/
The author Dr Amitendu Palit is presented as Senior Research Fellow of National University of Singapore. The author states:
[The recently released Indian Economic Strategy to 2035 report outlines three core objectives for improving the Australia–India economic relationship. These include making India one of Australia’s top three export markets by 2035, making India the third-largest Asian recipient of Australian foreign direct investment by the same year and bringing India ‘into the inner circle of Australia’s strategic partnerships and with people-to-people ties as close as any in Asia’.Recommendations for achieving these objectives are driven largely by the choice of states and sectors, 10 each respectively, that the report considers top priority for Australia.
The report is candid in its observations and does not fail to consider the challenges that such a pursuit is likely to encounter. But it also emphasises that India is unique in the growth trajectory that it is likely to follow and in the scale of its domestic market (shaped by its youth bulge), which together point to the importance of Australia ramping up its economic engagement with India.]

Any relationship is a combination of matter and energy. The deeper the common roots, greater the Energy component and therefore wider the coverage.


The strongest challenge that I ‘see’ in my mind’s eye is the forgetfulness of both political leaders in terms of racism. When one is not grateful for the good that has happened, one forgets the intelligence, the lesson, the law of Truth. This happens by leaving behind the Energy and carrying forward more of the deteriorating matter. That is self-inflicted punishment. Gratitude by the junior completes the experience for the junior. Inclusiveness by the senior without taking any return completes the experience for the senior. Matter may or may not move from one to the other in the process. In business matter is not enforced by one on the other. Towards this one side needs to be independent of  the other.


One who is genuinely grateful never forgets. Likewise one who includes the junior  at the base/root.


India lost its Prime Minister to the bomb of a group that ‘forgot’ the contribution made by its own intellectual leaders. It’s a clear example demonstrating the science of karma. Mrs Gandhi invested in Tamil armed rebels of Sri Lanka, who eventually killed her own son. The death happened in Tamil Nadu – where Mr Gandhi came for votes – the political parallel of money in business. Had Mr Gandhi included Tamils at root level of his regional governance investment, he would have been protected from leaving a damaged heritage for his heirs.


These are lessons from which Australian political leaders need to learn and so they would carry the wisdom with them when investing in India. Likewise, Indian leadership needs to learn from the Bali bombing tragedy during Mr John Howard’s leadership of Australia. Had Mr Howard included indigenous owners – not merely to ‘show’ but to feel and share – Australian’s would have been protected from that Tragedy. Indigenous Australians are the common root to a relationship with spiritually driven nations such as India. During my time as Australian, out of the Prime Ministers -  the Hon Paul Keating has shown the strongest common feelings with Indigenous Australians.


Mr Keating has brought out through his analysis in regards to the takeover of Fairfax by Channel 9. Some may call it merger but I also identify with it as takeover. Separations help preserve diversity. Where a restructure leads to major loss of diversity, the first casualty is Independence. I foresee this risk in the Australian-Indian collaboration under the current leaderships in both nations which failed to genuinely preserve and honor indigenous rights.


My mother nation Sri Lanka is currently the investment ground for both India as well as China due to the failure of  Sri Lanka’s political leadership to resolve the ethnic issue. Initially the opportunity was through our common investment in British Administration. That was the two way path of intellectual discrimination. But when the British left and Sinhalese majority took over, the majority relied more on emotional ties due to attachment to majority power. Majority power IS matter power. Eventually, Sri Lankan Tamils who were pampered by India including through the Cinema business in Tamil Nadu – also matched majority power by becoming India’s spoilt children. Greater the matter in a relationship less the shared Energy. Now those children of India feel more at home in India than in Sri Lanka – including Northern Sri Lanka. This is the lesson that Australia needs to learn – so the ‘African Gang’ type of emotional labelling does not end up costing Australian lives through ‘Indian mafia’. There are pockets in Tamil Diaspora who would naturally join forces with the ‘Indian mafia’.


Emotional pathway and Intuitive pathway – operate in one direction only at any given time. Greater the matter – greater the likelihood of emotional one way decisions to ‘show’ quick outcomes. Greater the Energy component in the relationship – deeper the common root and therefore the protection to both sides.


The author of the above report states:


[Whether the outcomes outlined in the report can be achieved will depend on the interest, sincerity and enthusiasm displayed by businesses, institutions and policy authorities on both sides of the Indian Ocean. Australia’s goal of making India one of its topmost export and investment markets cannot fructify unless India shares the same vision for its own national strategic interests. Unfortunately, there are gaps between Australian and Indian perceptions of the direction of the Indian economy.]

The statement ‘Australia’s goal of making India one of its topmost export and investment markets’  confirms a ‘takeover’ mentality – as if India’s business could be ‘made’ by Australians. A deeper common root would inform us that it is the current Indian Political leadership that is showing tendencies of ‘taking over’ and making Australian business. Adani group is such an example. Mr Turnbull has become the medium through which these Indian takeover energies are invading Australia. Refugees who go through pain and suffering are rejected by such leadership while Indians who made business out of Tamil ownership are rewarded by current Australian leadership. What a tragedy! It’s tragedy due to loss of intellectual powers driven by ownership energy.


Dr Amitendu Pali if he is of Indian origin living in Singapore, is not likely to feel Australian. Hence his analyses need to be self-balancing. I do not have the high intellectual knowledge in such affairs. But I am a feeling Australian and a feeling Hindu. Feelings give me intuitive direction. As an Australian I do not feel that Australia has the strategic goal of making India its topmost export market. The true and lasting commonness between India and Australia is the same as that between India and Sri Lanka – Spiritual ownership of the Nation. When we operate close to those common roots there are no takeovers; but Natural and harmonious Mergers.

Permanent Tamil Opposition


Yesterday I voted with my Truth via my article headed ‘African Gangs & Sri Lankan Terrorists’. This morning I identified with the outcomes when reading ABC article ‘Super Saturday: Labor's by-election wins leave Turnbull Government with questions to answer’.
Our real votes are cast when we feel good or bad due to Government policy and practice. Showing our Truth  manifests the opposite within the Sovereign unit that we feel a part of.  Hence we must first ‘own’ to make a difference at the top level. This could happen without us voting at all. When we have manifested our Truth, the other side at that level will happen within that Sovereign unit and we will ‘see’ it.  

Lawyer Harvey says  in the TV Serial Suits – ‘Being a lawyer is like being a doctor. You keep pressing it until it hurts, then you know where to look. Tamils did just that – pressed until we became the Equal Opposition in 1977 elections. The manifestation happened through the 1976 Vaddukoddai Resolution that majority Tamils could identify with in their own ways.


In 1983, when the Tamil Tigers returned the slain soldiers that action was NOT a manifestation that majority in Tamil community could identify with. It was disrespectful of the individuals’  human rights. Those who claim their soldiers as great heroes – are not heirs of the 1983 leadership or the 1983 leadership was not an heir of those who gave birth to the Vaddukoddai Resolution.


One of our relatives who failed to take responsibility for his children would react the moment his pension card was within his sight. As per his conscience – that was his and his alone. So long as he had that – he was being taken care of. Likewise, all of us feel the pain – real pain – at the point where the opposition meets our Truth. This was education to majority Tamil leaders and language to less educated Tamils.


In order to be entitled to a structural change at National level,  Tamils need to have both – feel the pain at Policy level, and have the courage to express it independently. Thereafter, the responsibility to ‘show the other side is with the system of Truth which is self-balancing. This happened in 1977 and in 2015 through real votes of true Governors. The Truth whether its manifestation at that time at that place is positive or negative – acts independent of us – including those who manifested the first side. It would be beneficial to those who manifested it despite pain and loss – so other victims will not feel alone.


In his Daily Mirror article ‘Lessons not learnt From Black July and aftermath India had stressed that it would not accept a Tamil State near its southernmost State, which houses a homogeneous populace’ Mr M S M Ayub states:
[Every aspect of the proposed new Constitution is branded as an attempt to carve out a separate Tamil State.]

One would expect minorities to have hurt much more through the Buddhism foremost article in the current constitution. If the new structure shows a separate Tamil structure – then at policy level it becomes a balanced constitution workable through intellectual discrimination.

During my Court battles, including against the then Prime Minister John Howard, a Judge of the NSW Supreme Court observed that I would not be ‘told’. Under the hierarchical system our seniors  tell us and we tell our juniors. Too much ‘telling’ or too little ‘telling’ would weaken this system. Former leads to dictatorship and latter to indifference. The system of democracy helps prevent such deterioration by facilitating minority to ‘tell’ ‘majority’ by taking Equal position. Muslims whose first language is Tamil are part of that Equal Opposition.

Mr M S M Ayub states:

[Where would the frustration ultimately lead the Tamil youth in the future? History has the answer. The frustration is already being witnessed by facts such as glorifying of former State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran.  
On the other hand, those Tamil leaders who ran away from the north and the east and hid in Colombo during the height of the separatist war are now drumming up separatist slogans and calling for the revival of the slain LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran.]

There is are two apparently opposing sayings in Tamil :
(1)  Ondru pattaal undu vaalvu (United we stand)
(2)  Kitta pohna mutta pahai (familiarity breeds contempt)

Both would be valid only when one is mentally united but physically not too close.

The fact that Mr Ayub applies Mrs Maheswaran as well us the separatism chanters – confirms the level at which Mr Ayub is capable of maintaining opposition. It is certainly not at the level of  intellectual governors who raised the thought structure of Tamil community. This includes the Hon  G G Ponnambalam of our generation.

When we deal with the issue at that level – educated Tamils of Sri Lanka would become the Royal Family – good looking but dysfunctional.

Mr M S M Ayub  observes [One cannot find fault with the commemoration of people killed in the war and even the sacrifices by the LTTE cadres and also with the struggles for the rights of the Tamils, so long as those events would not reinforce separatist ideology among Tamils.  
But some Tamil leaders still get involved in these events in a manner that creates or toughens separatist zeal among the Tamil youth, just for political gains. ]


In democratic politics – we are allowed only to vote for one side or the other. If the community is right in celebrating the life of rebels – then to that mind, Tamil leaders who support separatism are the representatives of Tamils. But TNA being the Tamil Opposition in Parliament, confirms the true net value of  ALL Sri Lankan Tamils to whom Sri Lanka is home. So long as that power is stronger than the ‘telling’ power  - we have successfully defended our ‘home’ powers that we naturally share with all others to whom also Sri Lanka is ‘home’. Taking Opposition as Separatism deteriorates the interpreters own investment in democracy.

African Gangs & Sri Lankan Terrorists


All of us add our Energies to places that are our homes. Whether a member of Government adds her/his Energy as a politician or governor would matter to identify with how global those to whom that place is home - become. Let’s take for example Victoria in Australia.
As per the SBS report that came my way:

[During a recent visit to the city, Mr Turnbull said "there is a gang issue here and you are not going to make it go away by pretending it doesn't exist".
While Mr Dutton linked the death of 19-year-old Laa Chol with "Victoria's gang problem"….. Mr Rudd is the nephew of former prime minister Kevin Rudd and has painted several other controversial murals, including a bulldog urinating on Senator Pauline Hanson.
In an interview with SBS News, he said the Australian government was using the "so-called African gang crisis" as an "election ploy".]


Where our credits with those who elect us are used for votes there is less for Governance escalation. At Governance level – it is ‘knock and it shall open’. At Political level ‘Ask and you shall be given’.


I myself have picked up the indicators with Mr Turnbull’s slide towards politics in preference to governance. My emails to him get a response that includes the following:


“If you would like to invite me or Lucy to an event, please forward the invitation to pminvites@pmc.gov.au.”


Why would I want to invite Mrs Turnbull to any event? Even if the wording had said ‘me and Lucy’ I would have considered it inappropriate in a communication to the general public. When a self-governing citizen like myself writes – the position of responds from within me. A true governor would have responded expressly or quietly – to the citizen within. As per the above response Mr Turnbull was ‘asking’ and hence was acting as politician.


The recent Guardian report about repatriation of a Sri Lankan refugee confirms to me that the Turnbull Government is abandoning our investments in global commonness after USING refugees to suit their own purposes:


Australia deports Tamil asylum seeker despite father’s murder

[………………….“I fear that my father’s killing and my mother’s and sister’s disappearance are both connected,” he wrote. “My family and I believe that my father was killed by the Sri Lankan security agencies. We believe he was killed because they suspected that we assisted the [now-defeated separatist military force, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam] LTTE.”
Kavi has always maintained that the Sri Lankan security agencies suspected his family, fishermen from the northwest of Sri Lanka, of having supported LTTE, commonly known as the Tamil Tigers.]
A citizen does not have the responsibility to prove that the government or its other side in war caused the death. S/he must believe that to be the case. The genuine contributor to global policy  would identify with a genuine apprehension in this regard. If we Australians do not have enough believers in global policies and we take credit as Provider nation – the return happens with time – and one is fear of ‘gangs’.

Kavi – made the right decision to go to India with a big rural heart . All he has to do there as a self-governing refugee  is knock and rural India will embrace him.


This identity with India goes to its self-governance power.

Mr Paisley - Mrs Maheswaran - Mr Gammanpila


In management we look for,  or at least talk about looking for,  ‘Root Causes’. To my mind, root causes are those that stem from our own Truth. An objectively measurable outcome, once it is produced for public consumption, could be used by any member of the public towards their own purposes and at their own risk. One would be empowered by not those who produce identical outcomes but those who have, as per their own conscience and/or Truth followed the parallel path and/or discovered the that Truth/Energy in a different form.  
Recently, Mr Harsha Gunasena highlighted as follows: [Robert Knox has written a book, ‘An Historical Relation of Ceylon,’ published in 1681 in London describing his experience in captivity in Ceylon from 1660 to 1679 during the time of King Rajasinghe II in Kandyan kingdom]
Wikipedia which to my mind, publishes more reliable information than any other medium accessible to the general public – provides the following information about Robert Knox’s experience in Ceylon as follows:
[During the voyage Knox wrote the manuscript of An Historical Relation of the Island Ceylon, an account of his experiences on Ceylon, which was published in 1681. Recently, this book was translated to Sinhala as "Knox Dutu Lakdiva" by Premachandra Alwis. The book was accompanied by engravings showing the inhabitants, their customs and agricultural techniques. It attracted widespread interest at the time and made Knox internationally famous, influencing Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe as well as sparking a friendship with Robert Hooke of the Royal Society. It is one of the earliest and most detailed European accounts of life on Ceylon and is today seen as an invaluable record of the island in the 17th century.
Knox became a close friend and collaborator of Robert Hooke, for whom he frequently brought back gifts from his travels. In return, Hooke took Knox to the local coffeehouses for chocolate and tobacco, then considered luxuries. On one occasion, Knox presented Hooke with samples of "a strange intoxicating herb like hemp" which he dubbed "Indian hemp" or "Bangue"; it is better known today as cannabis indica, a plant which was unknown at the time in Europe. Hooke gave an address to the Society in December 1689 in which he provided what was the first detailed description of cannabis in English, commending its possible curative properties and noting that Knox "has so often experimented it himself, that there is no Cause of Fear, tho' possibly there may be of Laughter."] 
As in the case of sexual pleasures – Kandyan Sri Lanka was more ‘free’ in terms of cannabis back then than it is today. Even if cannabis had been consumed at high level – it may not seem wrong to a community which sees that as a source of laughter. It’s when we recognize its ‘other’ side – through intellectual study and/or through someone who ‘shows’ the other side and thereby generates ‘fear’ – that there is relativity and therefore rights and wrongs. To my mind, the role of Opposition in Democracy is to ‘show’ this other side at current times. If the Opposition gets as complacent as the government – then it is highly likely that the excesses would continue due to them being sources of pleasure/laughter.
De facto governance which is ‘free’ governance needs to be driven by Truth for such groups to be People’s Advocates . Producing more outcomes than the Government at the same level - leads to disorder. Raising one’s work to ownership level – energises such Advocacy services.
As per BBC report headed Election results 2017  ‘Who are the DUP's 10 MPs?’:
[The son of long-time party leader, its founder and former Northern Ireland First Minister Ian Paisley, Mr Paisley succeeded his father as North Antrim MP in 2010. Following the resignation of the late Northern Ireland Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness earlier this year, Mr Paisley paid tribute to the Sinn Féin leader and former IRA member.
He said Mr McGuinness' "remarkable journey not only saved lives, but made the lives of countless people better".
…….. In a 2007 interview, Mr Paisley expressed his views on same sex marriages. He told Hot Press magazine he was "pretty repulsed" by gay people and lesbianism.
Mr Paisley later went on to defend his comments on BBC Newsnight saying he was "repulsed by many things".]

Is this not the British parallel of Mrs Maheswaran’s statement invoking the LTTE in the folks of Jaffna at a time when the Jaffna mind is low in self-esteem?
Democratic Unionist Party (DUP)  is a minority party and needs Truth to be an effective Opposition in Parliament. As per DUP’s Truth, the closest parallel to itself in Sri Lankan Parliament is the Tamil National Alliance (TNA). Accepting the hospitality of majority party confirms lack of ownership in the struggle for independence. That is the parallel of LTTE leadership accepting the ‘bribe’ paid by Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa to suppress the voting rights of Tamils in the 2005 Presidential elections. Bribe paid by Mr Rajapaksa as Presidential candidate is bribe paid by Sinhalese Community to suppress the Tamil community and is effectively  a form of ‘Paid Advocacy’. Monies/Benefits  that do not pass through our conscience become harmful to us when they come due to a position we have taken – than a position as per our Truth in that society. Laws are effective when they are expressions of the common conscience.
As per the recent Ceylon Today news report:
[OCPD officials who had questioned Vijayakala on Tuesday (24) had also questioned TNA Parliamentarian at his residence in Jaffna and recorded his statement because he was also present at the event where Maheswaran made remarks regarding the now defunct LTTE.
Senathiraja had pointed out that Vijayakala didn’t say anything with the intention of reviving the LTTE but had only expressed her anguish over the deteriorating state of the law and order situation in the Peninsula.]
The Organised Crimes Prevention Division (OCPD) has the responsibility to be bound by Article 9 of the Sri Lankan Constitution and therefore ensure that Dharma is upheld in applying the law. As a Tamil Politician Mr Senathiraja is more likely to know the mind of Mrs Maheswaran, than would OCPD. If his interpretation of the purpose is not accepted – then the law of Dharma says to take identical action against Mr Udaya Gammanpila and retired Navy official Lieutenant Commander B.P.S. Hemachandra, for the following outbusts/outcomes:
Gammanpila : ‘I will take action to issue a writ against the Attorney General to immediately arrest Vijayakala over her controversial statement.’
As per Ada Derana report ‘Vijayakala will never be arrested – Gammanpila’:
The ‘MP says that this will never be resolved seeing as the current government isn’t investigating on this matter and this has made taking legal action against it difficult.
It was at the launch of the book ‘Nandikadal Dhakwa Para Kapuwe Kawuda?’ (Who made the way to Nandikadal?)  on 25 July that  MP Gammanpila is reported to have made these comments.
As per that book :
[For three decades, the Sri Lanka Army battled against the most ruthless terrorist organization known to man in modern times, the "Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam" (LTTE). Even though the culture of "suicide missions" and "human bombs" has become the hallmark of terrorism around the world today, it was Velupillai Prabhakaran who first masterminded and used this most ruthless tactic in targeting both civilian and Government Forces. Commencing as a small terrorist outfit, Prabhakaran transformed the LTTE into an extremely powerful and conventional military entity, replete with a Land Force, Sea Tiger Wing (Naval) and an Air Tiger Wing (Air Force). The members of LTTE were brainwashed and indoctrinated to follow its leadership unquestioningly. They ardently believed their leader and were dedicated to their cause. Thousands of LTTE cadres were highly trained, skilled, experienced and ready to fight unto death. The 30-year long reign of terror finally ended victoriously in May 2009, when Sri Lanka Army defeated them militarily. On 19th May 2009, the valiant soldiers of 53 Division led by Major General Kamal Gunaratne, killed the Leader of the LTTE, Velupillai Prabhakaran and many of his senior leadership, on the battlefield at Nandikadal Lagoon. This marked the end of terrorism in Sri Lanka and brought with it, a great sense of relief to each and every peace loving citizen of this island nation. The author, Major General Kamal Gunaratne was a soldier and an infantryman who led the war from the forefront and was actively engaged in battles from its inception to the very end. Based on first hand experiences and insights gained through the multitude of roles and responsibilities held over the years from tactical to strategic level, the author shares his journey from Thirunaveli in 1983 to Nandikadal in 2009. It is the true story of defeating terrorism and bringing eternal peace to Sri Lanka.]

Mrs Maheswaran’s outburst is mosquito bite relative to the above king-cobra sting. If LTTE is dead – then anyone who calls them Terrorists is as guilty as Mrs Maheswaran referring to them as heroes as per her own conscience. The above book has the potential to arouse war-emotions in Tamils as well as Sinhalese ‘waiting for a fight’. Once invoked – the Sinhalese are more likely to find supporting energies in their government than would Tamils.
Mr Gunaratne got paid for his services in the Armed forces. When he takes more credit than that – especially through avenues external to his position in the Armed Forces, he is profiting from that position. That is cruel.

Let Dharma prevail.

The Crippled Front Legs of Hambantota


Most of us accept that all individuals are born Sovereign. Every naturally ‘free’ unit/group is also Sovereign. One who identifies with this Sovereignty  as an individual and/or as part of a group, would tend to be driven by the laws of that Sovereignty. Vishwamithra1984 has indicated this through  the caption of her/his Daily Mirror article - ‘Rule of Law or the Law of Rule Our dilemma of Governing dichotomy
To my simple mind, it is about living within our Truth – which regulates us to be orderly. Often however, we are distracted by the benefits of claiming Sovereignty rather than living as per that Sovereignty. Law of Sovereignty is confirmed by that  perfect order. Some laws, we know consciously;  while others drive us intuitively – for example laws of karma.
As per that Order, I felt a connection between the messages – the following headlines invoked in me:
Rajitha says Mattala to India and Hambantota to China is a balancing act - adaderana.lk
Darkness of Black July; nothing has changed after 35 years – Daily Mirror
Mattala baby elephant is genetically deformed: Wildlife Dept. – Daily Mirror

The report  about the baby elephant goes as follows:

[The disabled baby elephant found in Hambantota Suriyawewa had been diagnosed as congenitally deformed, Wildlife Health Director Dr. Tharaka Prasad said.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, he said a group of Wildlife officers had found the one-year-old disabled calf this Sunday during a wildlife mission in Suriyawewa Hambantota.
“The baby jumbo was seen hobbling with the assistance of its trunk because its front legs were deformed,” Dr Prasad said.
Dr.Prasad said although the baby elephant was found with minor injuries, the calf’s deformity was not a result of any external attack.
“It is impossible to cure such genetically deformed animals. However, we will do our best to apply necessary remedies,” Dr. Prasad added.   ]

To most readers this deformity may not mean anything connected to Hambantota politics. But to believers in the connection between animals and humans – it would mean something. It did to me, a worshipper of Lord Ganesh. It would to those Thais in whose culture ‘ Husband is elephant’s front legs, wife is elephant’s hind legs. In Sri Lankan politics one could say that Majority are the elephant’s front legs and minority are the elephant’s hind legs.

In other words – Hambantota’s Truth  confirms the crippling of leadership from birth itself.  India is investing in such an elephant because India is not listening to its own Truth.


Soon after  Black July in 1983, there was a high level of recruitment by Tamil rebel leadership, based in India and Resourced by India. Indian Resourcing is the elephant in the Tamil room. The victims of July 1983 riots were Tamils who dared to become multicultural in majority Sinhalese areas – especially in Colombo. Had the LTTE felt the pain of such Tamils as its own – it would not have returned the bodies of the 13 soldiers to Colombo. As per the signals I received when praying in 2009 – that was the starting point. But the  thinking of LTTE – free of Political supervision - was limited to their own genes and grooming. This included crippled front legs in male dominated Northern Province.


The Rule of Truth says that once we take revenge at the lower level – the loss cannot be escalated to ownership Energy. Northern Tamils who never left home were NOT capable of escalating the pain of multicultural Tamils to ownership level. LTTE eliminated that opposition from multicultural Tamils, many times. It is due to multicultural Tamils that Jaffna is not crippled in leadership as Hambantota.


As per the Truth of  my generation Jaffna Tamils – the passage from Jaffna to Colombo needs to be open and Natural if we are to preserve our Sovereignty as a group. Investment in Higher Education has to be strengthened towards this. One way is to analyse what happened to us – until we know the True reason as per our own makeup. It is NOT in common form between Northern Tamils who never leave home and Northern Tamils who expand their home areas beyond their birthplace – as I did. There is not one cure for both groups. Likewise in East and Hill country where Tamils are in majority.


Every person / group that identifies with the suffering of multicultural Tamils – as the Canadian Prime Minister has demonstrated this week – would be strengthened in their own multicultural wisdom.


It’s noteworthy that India did not but was busy acquiring a share in Hambantota elephant with its crippled front legs. It was no coincidence that this happened around the same time and not too far from Kathirgamam – the shrine that confirms multi religious culture with Hindu Murugan leading – through strong front legs.
