Gajalakshmi Paramasivam

16 October  2019


Yesterday was the samadi  anniversary of Saint Shirdi Baba who gave me the message to help Tamils and Muslims. (Chapter 1-Jaffna is my heritage ; not dowry). Yesterday was also the birth anniversary of  my granduncle Duraipillai. I prostrated in front of his photo and asked for his blessings. To some, this may seem an act of superstition. But to me – it was a way to invoke the positive Energy that this Saint and granduncle respectively had developed and that which is available to the community and family.  Later, in the evening, we watched with much satisfaction – the TV news regarding the inauguration  of  Jaffna International Airport. Last night, before shutting down the computer – I did a Google search under my name – which I do from time to time. Then I came across the ‘Jaffna Seminar Report’ (2013)  in which I have highlighted the Jaffna Plane.

I felt that I had also contributed to ‘Jaffna International Airport’ by believing in Jaffna. In terms of the Jaffna plane – which is to the credit of Malaysian Tamils of Jaffna origin – remembrance of that contribution is important when invoking the LTTE name superstitiously.
As per yesterday’s Island editorial headed ‘Reds and gods’ one gets the feeling that these would be considered superstitious connections:

[..Dissanayake has also raked astrologers over the coals and flayed the media for promoting astrology and occult practices. We are reminded of Voltaire, who famously said, "Superstition is to religion what astrology is to astronomy, the mad daughter of a wise mother. These daughters have too long dominated the earth." One may say these mad daughters have had a polyandrous relationship with our political leaders if talismans, gem-studded rings, etc., the latter wear to ward off the so-called malefic planetary influences are anything to go by. Man, who has evolved over millennia, now possesses an advanced mind, which is capable of unravelling some mysteries of the universe, but he continues to be troubled by gnawing atavistic fears. Those who wield immense political power are no exception.]

Am I such a mad daughter? I was certainly classified so by well-meaning psychiatrists who wanted to right the wrong by a Magistrate suffering from bi polar disorder.  Naan Australian – chapter 26:
..Mrs. Paramasivam was punctual for the interview. She was accompanied by her husband. She was casually dressed in jeans and T-shirt. She was very polite, pleasant and appropriate in her manner of relating. She has a broad range of emotional response and there was no indication that she was suffering from any disturbance in her mood. She was not at all concerned by her charges or the possibility that she could be incarcerated. Her speech was normal in rate and volume with no thought disorder. She was able to give a very detailed history of the series of events that led up to her current charges. She was supremely confident that her course of action was the right course and her self righteousness verged on grandiosity. She expressed a number of bizarre beliefs (delusions) with a belief that she was able to communicate via mental telepathy with various religious figures. She believed that she was being persecuted by the police and that the University and the Judiciary were colluding against her. She denied the presence of imaginary voices (auditory hallucinations) however it was probable that she had been responding to imaginary voices. She was quite insightless as she did not believe she had a mental illness and had no desire to take medication.
Following the termination of the assessment I spoke to her husband briefly and asked him about her behaviour. He was very supportive and he did not believe that his wife was mentally ill.
I note that as a result of her assessment provided by Dr. Conor O’Neil on 6 June she was sent on a Section 31A of the Mental Health (Criminal Procedures) Act 1990 to the psychiatric unit at Caritas Hospital where she was found to be mentally ill and to be suffering from a paranoid psychotic disorder. However the assessing doctor at the time did not deem it necessary to keep her in hospital on the basis that her condition was likely to be prolonged and difficult to treat.
Mrs. Paramasivam has a paranoid psychosis. This condition has been present for several years and is characterized delusions of grandiosity, passivity and persecution and probable visual and auditory hallucinations, In addition she has prominent obsessional traits in her personality with a tendency to be quite moralistic, rigid and somewhat inflexible in her manner in relating to the world.
There is no indication that she has a drug and alcohol problem or that she is developmentally disabled.
Mrs. Paramasivam is mentally ill and although she has made a nuisance of herself I do not believe that she would harm either herself or others in particular members of the university. She needs treatment with appropriate antipsychotic medication, Based on past experiences it is unfortunately highly probable that she would not be admitted if she was sent to a psychiatric hospital in the community. Two hospitals have already denied her care.
I believe that it would be appropriate to seek a Community Treatment Order under Section 32 of  the Mental Health Act. Due to her total lack of insight she will not voluntarily seek treatment. As her beliefs are very entrenched and have been present for several years her response to medication is likely to be slow however this is not a reason to avoid or deny treatment.
Without treatment I believe there is a considerable risk that she will reoffend. She perceives herself as a martyr who is fighting for the rights of others and her own well being is of little significance to her. Although she is prone to place her own interpretation on the law she does have a strong moral code. She indicated that she would adhere to an AVO if she knew that there was one in place and for this reason I would encourage the University to take out an AVO if this has not already been done.
As the above ‘specialists in science of law and medicine’ I was mentally ill – a mad daughter.  But many Hindus touch my feet as a mark of respect for an elder. This is common practice in Buddhists also. We therefore belong in two different worlds.

Let us now go to the case against Mr Gotabhaya  Rajapaksa which was dismissed by the Court of Appeal on 04 October 2019. The last two pages of the judgment are reported to be as follows:

As per my interpretation of the above,  the ‘issue’ as stated by the judges was whether or not there was a legal basis to issue formal Notice of the Application to the Respondents?

If yes, all one needed was the rule of Court of Appeal in relation to acceptance and processing of  documents. This usually is a Registry function – the function parallel to those in Citizenship section of the Department of Immigration in relation to Dual Citizenship Applications. The matter is resolved through the simple science of Administration – the same way I would check the level of my body temperature to decide whether or not to take Panadol? . But the Court went through three days of hearing and 41 pages of discussion – before delivering the ruling that there was no legal basis to issue formal Notice of the Application to the Respondents?

The case laws that have been included are the parallels of my prayers to Saint Shirdi Baba and my communications with Sai Baba – included as follows in the above report by the Australian specialist:

Mrs. Paramasivam acknowledged that for several years she had been in communication with a range of people including Yoga Swami, Our Lady and Sai Baba the leader of an Indian Religious Group. She told me that Sai Baba was a saint and on the 5 November 1998 red powder materialized on her picture of him. She interpreted this as meaning that he was in communication with her and felt that it was a miracle, a sign of his love for society.
She said that Sai Baba was able to anticipate her thoughts and she felt comforted by this and said that she had experienced an intuitive relationship with Sai Baba and her communication with him had continued to this day. She described the communication as a “blissful state” it felt as if she did not have a  care in the world. She acknowledges that her current charges did not concern her because of the comfort she received from Sai Baba and said that he was the only one whose opinion counted with her.

The fact that I connected the above materialization to the Auditor General’s report confirming my own conclusions about the University’s Financial Management system  - published on the same day – 05 November 1998 was left out of the above report – by the scientist.

In modern management this mind to mind communication is recognized as Performance Indicators. One does not need proof because one believes. Case laws likewise are about how our ancestors structured the problem and applied that particular law. The same manifestation is likely to  produce different outcomes when passed through two different laws of the one country – as per the minds of those who produced those laws.

As per science – Time and Place influence change in form. If we therefore go deep into the matter until we come to the ‘time’ when a previous outcome happened – we would have the true experience. Then that truth will lead us. But if we blindly copy the form – that would mislead us. The Island editor states in this regard:

[Most Sri Lankan political leaders flaunt their raja yoga or rare planetary combinations in their horoscopes, believed to indicate their ascent to the zenith of their careers; they do as their astrologers say in a bid to achieve their goals. There have been instances where their decisions based on astrological predictions brought about their downfall. It may be recalled that a popular president once had a painful pratfall as he took his palace seer’s advice seriously and advanced a presidential election only to be beaten by a dark horse in the race. The astrologer concerned is still having a good practice, we are told. There is said to be a sucker born every minute.]

What about the Ides of March? Is it mythology? The month of March was the month of war as well as the first month in the ancient Roman calendar. Hence the prophecy by someone who went into that science at that time. Caesar was a warlord and the time was ripe for a new beginning. One who believes in Astrology would see the deeper mind of the person whose ‘fate’/ ‘karma’ s/he is reading than the person her/himself. It’s not different to a doctor reading the patient’s mind in relation to a particular disease. Like the Island editor – Caesar also did not feel warned by the ‘ides of March prophesy’.

Mr Mahinda  Rajapaksa was influenced by not only the ‘palace seer’ but also the ‘case law’ of the 2010 elections in which he emerged victor. Both – 2010 as well as the 2015 elections were called in the month of November – the month dedicated to the souls of the dead. November 23 on which the 2010 elections were confirmed by Mr Rajapaksa  is also the birthday of Swami Sathya Sai Baba. The Opposition in those elections was General Fonseka who demonstrated greater faith in his secular skills than in religion. In addition – a good proportion of the LTTE were also known to have been disrespectful of Swami Sathya Sai Baba. Hence their soul power would not have worked against Mr Rajapaksa’s religious beliefs.

But in 2015 civilian pain due to the war surfaced as a strong factor. Every time the loved ones of the dead felt deep pain – to which the Rajapaksas did not respond – the victims’  civilian powers got strengthened. The soul power of November was thus spread over the years. Mr Sirisena who became the medium was very much a religious man. These aspects would be experienced when we go deep into the minds of participants through our common belief. This common belief could include astrology as well as  Buddhism. By 2014 – Mr Rajapaksa may have become less and less connected to the minds of those who believed in astrology by failing to say ‘thank you’ to the astrological powers and/or the voters who had common belief.

Belief is Absolute power and it delivers through the main pathway through which one has travelled. I believe that my insight into law happened due to my belief in secular law. When one of the above mentioned matters was being heard – and a good psychiatrist declared that I was quite normal and directed the matter back to the courts.  That psychiatrist – Dr Peter Vaugh stated that I was following in the path of Gandhi. The courts released me – and later I found that on 01 November 2004 the same day the above happened -  my response to Justice C.G. Weeramantry, former Vice President of the International Court of Justice – was Published by Daily News of Sri Lanka That was Déjà vu.

My mind did and would help others in need – as case law – especially when Judicial rulings become superstitious due to lack of belief in judicial ancestors.
