The Black-Dog in Sri Lankan Politics
My logic says that where there is victory there is also a loss. That same logic says that where one recognizes win and loss at the same level at the same time, one is an owner. Where one recognizes only one – in oneself and / or the other in another one confirms separation as well as Equality.
Every year the Sri Lankan government celebrates victory of the armed forces against Tamil militants who are/were children of Tamil civilians. They do not celebrate victory against Sinhala militants in South. This confirms Separation. We do not need to prove it to anyone. The truth exists even when there are no supporters. To the extent we support truth it supports us with interest.
Article 2 of the Sri Lankan Constitution states:
The Republic of Sri Lanka is a Unitary State.
Where a government celebrates victory against another group – it confirms that they are separated in that activity. If therefore Sri Lanka is to be a unitary state that would NOT happen under a government that celebrates victory against another part of the land called Sri Lanka. But given that minorities in areas where majority are of an alternate race, have no choice of ‘seeing’ themselves through the government, their vote exercised through parties that have different / Diverse forms to that of the majority they confirm acceptance of that separation from the government celebrating victory only in a local fight. That confirms a structure that is Federal but one without a Common head. Yesterday, in a discussion with fellow Tamil professionals who are medical specialists - about God as the superior identity that we pray to, one expert concluded as follows:
I explained my logic as follows:
The political system in democracy – confirms that Divine power which is known to us through each other at equal level. This is the parallel of Radha Aiyer above believing and understanding the language of that patient. At that level any knowledge – however clever it may seem will not work in that environment. Had I said anything about how someone is treated in the Western Medical system – I would have naturally opposed the local system. Likewise in law. Hence the ban on dual citizens holding law-making positions in a democracy.
A government that celebrates victory against another group confirms that it is foreign. We have the choice of accepting or rejecting it through our Universal Franchise.
The separations happened due to the same reason as to why the government that actively professed Buddhism foremost and/or Sinhala only. They wanted separation and they got separation. TNA included militants in its grouping and to that extent it diluted its own investment in political pathway. That was not a team of common belief. It was a joint venture based on outcomes and is not different to Rajapaksa led SLFP including Karuna. In both instances they chose to ‘ignore’ the ‘separation’ factor that the militants had invested in through their actions which qualified as ‘dictatorship’. This separatism karma followed them like black-dog. Black-dogs cause depression of the mind. Lord Vairavar is a protecting Deity and is the Lord of Security. The vehicle of Lord Vairavar known as ‘Kaala Bhairavar’ - is the black dog – which is depression that automatically happens when we do not balance our desires with discipline. That is the way of Creation.
