Gajalakshmi Paramasivam





As per my experiences, Natural restructures happen from time to time when someone / a group is in need of support of truth. As per my current experiences in Northern Sri Lanka, Tamil lawyers in lost touch with their Thesawalamai heritage. This is the only customary law that Northern Sri Lankan Tamils at grassroots level practice in everyday life. Recently, in Thunaivi, we were prevented from trimming the branches of a tree on our side of the common fence. That law was as per the local community’s understanding of civil law. Since I was in their territory, I accepted their rule. This leads to commonness which naturally prevents conflict.

At the same time, a mind which carries two laws for the same issue experiences continuous conflict.

This was how I saw Mr Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam’s presentation at


Gajendrakumar states that Mr Ranil Wickremesinghe was rejected by the People.  If that is true, then his Opposition that came to power at the same time needs to be taken as genuine victors. Hence when those victors were dismissed by the voters, they naturally reversed Ranil’s position. That is how true protests work.

Gajendrakumar states also, that Ranil is the blue eyed boy of Americans and the West.  If that is true, as per his measure, then we need to accept also that between the Sinhalese Army and the Tamil Tigers, USA which along with the U K cosponsored UNHRC resolution 25/1 in March 2014 –by effect protects the Tamil Tigers.

One who believes in a law, would apply the law impartially. Such law needs to be so applied impartially on ‘facts’ established independently, in a common forum. If therefore, the UN applied the measure used on Sri Lankan Government, on the Tamil Tigers also, that would seriously affect the status of Tamils who are part of the global community.

To reach a reliable judgment for oneself, one needs to believe in the law / measure used. To ‘show’ a reliable outcome, the law needs to be applied to commonly accepted facts. Hence the saying – justice must not only be done, but must be seen to be done.

Gajendrakumar is playing lousy politics with the UNHRC Resolution. If he is true to himself, he will know that Ranil came to power to punish those who abused global laws for personal rewards. We, the true believers in Murugan philosophy call it Soorasamharam. If Gajendrakumar is also a believer in Murugan, he will identify with this through a still mind.
