ARE TAMILS INDIANS FOREMOST?
Most religions confirm the soul within us. In the secular
world this is recognised as truth / love. Truth is formless and is often recognised
as ‘facts’. Truth discovered by us stays with us as positive Energy. Truth
ignored by us becomes negative Energy when we fail to pay our dues to the
benefits we enjoy. Those dues in a belief
based system take the form of ‘expressions
of gratitude’ ‘respect’ ‘appreciation’ etc. When my work is appreciated by
someone, I would know it within me – because most of my work is based on truth
realised by me. I believe that once generated – that Energy is within me forever.
From time to time its manifestation can be blocked by desire or fear based thoughts
but when I go into my work as internal virtual reality – I identify with that
Energy. This I feel is recognized as Intuition in common language.
On the basis of the above -
what is my experience of Ceylon Today article ‘Modi to Open Jaffna Indian Cultural
Centre as Planned’ by Sulochana Ramiah
a person who feels ownership in Jaffna, I feel happy that the Prime Minister of
India is coming to Jaffna for this specific purpose. It confirms the value of Jaffna
Tamil investment in Politics which was strong enough to invoke highest level
regional support. It would also offset any threat from other foreign
governments such as the government of China. Communist Party in Jaffna was
related to China. Keeping this in mind, I read and listened to reviews of the
film Tamil Methagu (the honourable) that has been released recently. The film
is about LTTE Chief Velupillai Prabhakaran.
one takes the film as true, then I become their Opposition. It is based largely
on the last manifestations during the last
stages of the armed war. As a local sharing in the experiences of the victims,
I do not identify with Prabhakaran as an honourable leader. As one who represented
armed protestors – Prabhakaran was my internal opposition. Knowing this truth
is essential to Energise the educated politician – naturally representing
Tamils to whom education is a pathway to independence.
Prabhakaran had every opportunity to become independent through the pathway of
higher education. Had he done so, the 2009 massacre would have been prevented.
By treating MG Ramachandran as his Big Brother, Velupillai Prabhakaran contributed
to Tamil cinema. Naam Thamilar Party’s head Seeman was also a Tamil politician
from the cinema industry.
parallel of the above is the Rajapaksa leadership using money above belief to
promote itself. In effect China became the Big Brother of Sinhalese due to
money. One who is driven by money foremost cannot be a travelling in Buddha’s
the extent Tamils of Sri Lanka are conscious of Sri Lanka being their nation, India’s
investment in Tamil areas of Sri Lanka would promote merger between Equals.
Those who are conscious of being Tamil only – would effectively become part of
India’s Tamil Nadu. I am therefore their natural Opposition. If we truly feel
independent – any place where we feel free – is our home.
