AMERICAN TAMIL POLITICS
Common manifestations happen through merged Energies.
When we interpret them as per our own truth those interpretations become ours.
The Tamil side experience of the Sri Lankan ethnic conflict would therefore be different
to that of the Sinhalese. The Indian Tamil interpretation would also be
different to that of the Sri Lankan Tamil interpretation. Below is an example
on the basis of the film ‘Methagu’
ILANKAI TAMIL SANGAM, USA, INC. ASSOCIATION OF TAMILS OF SRI LANKA IN THE
வரலாற்று காவியத்தை பாராட்டுகிறோம் / We
celebrate Methagu – the historic epic
Tamil Diaspora leader
Though I still have not
watched this movie "Methagu" (I prefer not to), I agree with what you
wrote and the feelings within!.
Well said and done.
that the latter is based on my interpretation, and I know that I wrote on the
basis of my truth, the identity represents the combined value of our truth,
raised to the exponential value of the higher contributor. This is why in
Democracy, it is important to facilitate participation by primary level investors.
the American group share its truth? An inquiry into their work in relation to
the ethnic issue took me to the following about ‘Hindu’:
[G. Kasturi and the Eelam Issue
tragedy of the Hindu is the tragedy of newspaper editors who allow themselves
to be sucked into the decision-making processes of their governments! [Tamil
Times, London, October 1988, p.12]
verdict: Those who read the editorials presented in the Appendix can recognize
that Kasturi posed as a wiseacre and his wishy-washy writing style was verbose,
pretentious, repetitive, unimaginative and unrealistic to the aspirations of
Eelam Tamils. Last but not the least, his written stuff was boring to read!]
Sri Kantha, October 24, 2012
collection of mish-mash tributes
should not forget that it was when G.Kasturi was at the helm, that the Hindu published a premature obituary of LTTE leader
Prabhakaran in July 1989. It was one of the biggest
blunders in the history of Hindu’s 110 years of journalism. Those who sing elegy to Kasturi wouldn’t like this to be
reminded. A responsible editor would not have permitted this sort of
attention-grabbing gimmickry to adorn his newspaper’s pages, even at the
insistence of nation’s gumshoes for whatever reasons. But, it did happen during
Kasturi’s time!] Sachi
As per my interpretation – the LTTE leader was not a hero back
then and hence the ‘attitude’. The mistake through which the Hindu was found fault with, by Sangam.org back then has happened – this time
through Sangam.org publishing work in praise of Indian Tamils (through Methagu)
above the interpretation of Jaffna Tamils whose interpretations were/are important
in terms of Ethnic problem in Sri Lanka. In both instances hasty reporting is the
The Ethnic war in Sri
Lanka included India’s contribution. To my mind, it was to the ‘Common pool’ to
the extent it was based on belief. Where money drove the relationship – India’s
contribution went towards separation from the group that produced the sovereign
group that we believed we were a part of. The American Tamil group’s interpretation confirms
their own truth in this matter. My responses confirm mine:
Alleged Declaration by
LTTE leader published through Methagu – and interpreted by American Tamil Sangam
and my interpretation:
(1) Methagu VP: "இயற்கை எனது நண்பன்" - Nature is my Friend
Gaja: Why did
you use weapons that destroy the environment – especially the Peace of the
(2) Methagu VP:"வாழ்க்கை
– My life is my Philosopher
Gaja: Which part
of your life taught you to kill Tamil politicians who made the declaration of belief that they
(3) Methagu VP:"வரலாறு எனது வழிகாட்டி"
– History is my Guide
Gaja: Did the
intellectual politician guide you to copy Armed Sinhalese who killed their
(4) Methagu VP:"
ஆயுதம் தூக்கி இருக்க மாட்டோம் " – If Sinhala politicians had been true Buddhists we would not have resorted to arms
Gaja: Did you
use Buddha Sasana to measure whether they were true or not? Or given that you
converted to Christianity – did you measure them through the Christian Bible?
If yes, why did you not turn the other cheek?
The indicator from within
is as follows:
The director of the above
film – Mr Kittu is reported to have been from Naam Thamilar Party in Tamil Nadu.
On 07 June 2021 – I wrote under the heading
CONGRESS IS NAAM CONGRESS?’ which was based on the knowledge of US Congress resolution in reference to north and east of
Sri Lanka as the “traditional Tamil homeland.”
Yesterday, I learnt that Tamil Sangam of America was also
part of the manifestation of the above through its endorsement of the film
Is Methagu getting the Sri Lankan Tamil ready for another war
– this time against Chinese troops also?
