Gajalakshmi Paramasivam

10 March 2021




I smiled as I read the following in Ms Manori Ravindran’s (of ‘Variety’) presentation of the latest situation in regards to the Harry Meghan matter:

In a statement on behalf of the Queen that was released Tuesday evening, U.K. time, the Palace said: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”

I smiled because to my mind, that is what the current Sri Lankan President also said to the UN – that war crimes allegations  would be dealt with ‘privately’ by Sri Lankans.


As per reports, the UK public are responding differently to the American public, on this matter. There are cultural differences  not only between the two nations but also the levels of Natural responsibility carried by the Queen as opposed to Meghan who at family level is far junior to Meghan. In terms of family I identify more with the queen than with Meghan or Harry who are very young parents.


In terms of Racism in global context – as per my experience based measure – Meghan is causing serious damage to America’s investment in Racial Equality. The measure of real pain is that one needs to be poorer in terms of money and status at the end than at the beginning of the relationship. If one is richer then one is seeking to profit.

The measure is illustrated by the following Hindu Legend:


As pre Hindu Legend Muruga renounced the prize mango – to establish His own kingdom.  Elephant faced Ganesh and Muruga are the two children of Shiva-Shakthi.  Saint Naradhar is  usually known to highlight an issue by promoting/escalating  a conflict which ultimately ends well. This time Saint Naradhar took a mango to Shiva-Shakthi and said that whoever ate that mango would attain eternity.  Given that Shiva-Shakthi did not need it (they were already immortal) they decided to share it equally between their two children.  Saint Naradhar says that to attain the value of eternity, the mango should not be shared but should be eaten in full by one person.  This means that anything physical should be fully experienced  by one person to raise it to the higher value.  For example,  our workplace credits need to be fully owned by us before we could raise it to ownership level. Towards this we need to feel grateful to those who contributed to our development and the opportunities through which we obtain those credits. If we are not able to do this, we need to share benefits purely on merit basis. Hence Equal Opportunity principles in countries/cities  that have high migrant population.


The two sons – Ganesh and Muruga are invited to participate in the race to go around the world to get the prize mango. Muruga the active  junior, immediately takes His vehicle the Peacock and starts on His around-the-world trip.

In Hindu temples, the Divine quality  is personified inside the altar and its opposite – the animal quality is personified outside the altar and is called the vehicle.  It is called the vehicle due to us needing to travel on the animal to realize the values of our divinity.  If the animal is not used as a vehicle – it would tend to dominate and run the show. 


Shiva for example is personifies Love.  Hence ‘`[fEp civmf / Anpe Sivam (Shiva is Love)’.  The bull outside denotes lust.  Likewise elephant faced Ganesh personifies the intellectual path - as the elephant is known to be the one with deepest memory within the animal kingdom.  The mouse outside personifies hearsay and does as it is ‘told’.  To me Ganesh is Computer and mouse is the mouse used to instruct the computer.  Ganesh is worshipped at the beginning of a venture due to being known as the  remover of obstacles – the way the elephant clears the path for others coming behind him. One who uses his own deep memory is like Ganesh and  one who uses hearsay is like the mouse.  Information that is not written by us would not last long in our memory. Muruga personifies egoless state due to His 360 view.  When we are global / universal – there is no ‘I’ ego in us.  The peacock on the other hand is known to be proud of itself.


 Ganesh, who is the thinker – and who would have been at a disadvantage compared to Muruga due to the latter’s ability to fly – compared to Ganesh’s mouse - asked Saint Naradhar whether it was correct thinking that His parents – Shiva-Shakthi stood for the whole world. Saint Naradhar said ‘yes’.  Then Ganesh asked whether it was therefore correct that if He went around  Shiva-Shakthi He was actually going around the world.  Saint Naradhar said ‘yes’.  So Ganesh went around His parents – believing them to be the whole world and Ganesh won the prize mango. To me this is the academic way. But then that works only if their academic gurus are their whole world. In terms of migration – this means also that the senior migrants need to be driven by their intellect and not physical contribution, if they are to retain leadership power.


Muruga on completing His journey successfully, learns that the prize mango had been awarded to Ganesh who completed the journey by His mind, renounces His heritage and establishes His kingdom on Palani Hill in South India. Muruga is known also as the Lord of Democratic era for this reason of physically observing – and hence ‘objectivity’ in democracy. Hence this accommodates juniors / minorities who would actively observe a matter from all angles before they make decisions – as in Do It Yourself way.


The Queen, like the Divine parents represents the heritage of Autocracy. Hence the queen is not active in Democracy.


Harry & Meghan – if they sought to lead – needed to renounce all benefits from that heritage and begin from zero base, as Muruga did.


Likewise, the Tamil Diaspora that seeks to use the democratic measure, needs to renounce all its wealth from ancestral powers that developed wealth through autocracy. This includes any ‘wins’ by the LTTE which was strongly autocratic.


The Rajapaksa family are also autocratic and they are currently ‘active’. This was confirmed when they withdrew from the commitment to UN. Expecting them to be democratic would be like asking the Queen to rule in the racism issue. Democracy must first exist to give one the eligibility to Equality and therefore deny Racism.


The above mentioned Ms Manori Ravindran for example, is presented as ‘the International Editor of Variety, based out of London, where she manages the global team of correspondents, in addition to reporting on the international film and TV markets.’ The young lady is of Sri Lankan Tamil origin. But if she were to appreciate equality, she needs to be independent of Tamils in Sri Lanka who live off the residues of the Subjective system.

A good example of that is Mrs Ambigai Selvakumar who is openly confirming that she is following in the footsteps of LTTE member Thileepan who also is reported to have fasted unto death. But LTTE being Autocratic and the UN being Democratic one would not influence the other.
