Damsel In Distress; Lanka In Agony

By Vishwamithra

“The real man smile in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.” ~ Thomas Paine

Her clothes were ripped off; body battered; mind confused and heart burnt; she was raped and dishonored and violated beyond recognition. All the traditions and values that were associated with a young woman in a rural hamlet were stolen from her, so to speak. For one offender to another successive criminal, her body and soul became a playground; she was defamed, defaced and debased. Yet, while all these undignified and unscrupulous deeds were committed by her own children who claim that this was all done in order to protect her and her good name, those who did not participate in these inhuman deeds were rendered impotent and mute. Because all these ungodly feats were consummated by the hooligans of her nation-body as patriotic ventures that deserve to be preserved for posterity and the love for ‘the land, the race and the faith’. 

By the time she reached fifty years after ‘Independence’, the gruesome process has evolved to be the norm instead an exception. With her profile so faded, a forlorn look in her eyes and all her hopes and dreams in ashes, she still keeps one single hope, a faint ray of desire to rise from the layers of rages heaped up in enmity, hatred and envy. In the modern world in which every guy and gal is having his or her ear glued to a Smartphone, she laments that her evolution has not embraced that ‘phone-culture’ as yet. Her mere attachment to things that are more traditional and conventional has made her clumsy and slavish to things of the past that are mere concepts and not living organisms.

That inherent lethargy as a historical fact as was proven time and again in her ancient ‘glorious past’ and her disinterested slant to the currents of international and all-embracing technological advancements has cost her dearly; she may not have realized it, but that is the hard truth. To paraphrase Jawaharlal Nehru who in his celebrated book, The Discovery of India, himself quoting another great son of India, Rabindranath Tagore, wrote that all things of the past are dead and death-dealing. Each time she peeped into her ancient past, as someone close associated with psychiatry disclosed, she got something akin to an orgasmic relief, a relief so fleeting, the immediate aftermath of that relief made it look like a disguised agony calling for company.

This unrelenting epic continues to date. The faked patriotism of Weerawansa and Gammanpila, thunderous shrieking by Dinesh and Aluthgamage and insalubrious and pathetic violation the body and soul of Mother Lanka by Mahinda Rajapaksa and his notorious family are beyond description. 

All these violations were there in her ancient history too. Those who chronicled her history, more often than not, alluded to the glorious events of war-victories, shattering of the enemy’s will and erection of magnificent Stupas, Dagabas and ocean-like tanks. The paintings in the Rock fortress Sigiri and Buddha statues in the Dambulla caves, of course, tell a calmness and serenity of a totally sublime and disciplined mind of a people. Such greatness is not subordinated by the massive irrigation networks that streamed life-giving waters to hungry and impatient lands downstream. These mind-boggling human achievements were not bested by any of the modern day rulers. Yet, as Tagore said, they are all dead and belong in the distant arena of past.

With all due respect to DS Senanayake and his first Cabinet of Ministers, the apathetic regard they exhibited during the first few years of Independence towards the well-being of Mother Lanka was shaded with nuanced and subtle fine lines of Colonial artistry. However, the first of her violations began with a man called SWRD Bandaranaike, who for his inflated egoistic reasons and mad rush to power, floated the idea of Sinhala-only policy heralded by his five-pronged army- Sanga, Veda, Guru, Govi, Kamkaru (Sanga, Indigenous medical practitioner, Teacher, Farmer and Laborer). That idea became a potent force with real inflammatory sloganizing. Apart from a very positive and productive profile, this force contained within itself pent up emotions of an envious and angry adolescent. That adolescent, in his newly-found, yet misplaced courage, believed it was time to violate her who had just attained puberty.

Once that gross misdemeanor was committed, those who followed the regimes of Sirimavo Bandaranaike, JR Jayewardene, R Premadasa, Chandrika Kumaratunaga and up to Mahinda Rajapaksa, felt utterly free to indulge in the most indecent and unspeakable acts of high crimes and misdemeanor. While all these dastardly violations were justified on the grounds of ‘patriotism’, the Damsel suffered the indignities of rape, terror, bullying, intimidation and butchery.

Nevertheless, one simply cannot disregard nor forget the consummation of all these violations by the dawn of 2015. And sheer apathy which was shown in the process towards the rule of law was more vocal and robust in its exercise in the absence of decency. The rule of law became the law of rule. The sloganeers of the Rajapaksa regime, with their crafty and evil intentions, carried the shameless harassing of the land, the race and the faith. The gruesome acts of violence and silent nod rendered by the prelates of the Maha Sanga encouraged these hooligans to carry on with their inhumanities to their brethren, whether they came from the North or the South, the East or the West. A license to murder, harass, rape and loot was gleefully endorsed by the leaders of the ‘Teachings’ of the first religious leader who taught Ahimsa, (non-violence), Siddhartha Gautama Buddha.

Our Great Chronicle says that Prince Gamini (before he was coronated as Duttha-Gamini) refused to lie on his bed with his arms and legs freely spread out. The reason he gave was that when the Tamils in the North and the Indian Ocean in the South are threateningly invasive, how could he possibly sleep freely. The venom and anger contained in these words are still echoing deeply in the ears of extremists whose misplaced sense of patriotism is providing sufficient fuel to convert that patriotism into slaughter and dismemberment of a fellow countryman. 

Ethnic violence and ethnic discrimination has taken deep root in the psyche of the adolescent who has now reached his middle age. His propensities for violence and mayhem may have cooled down; his anger and venom may have reached its peak over a couple of decades ago, yet his dormant enmity and rage is like ember beneath the ashes. The slightest of dog whistle could rekindle that flame; the faintest of signal is sufficient to call to arms. 

In this convolution of national character, ‘how can I rest in peace’, the damsel pleads. An epic transformation is obligatory. A total calibration of the fine traces of character is long overdue. Rehabilitation of his soul must accompany the recalibration and the transformation, if not, all purpose of the exercise becomes redundant, for the foe and friend of our land become one and the same and the foe overpowering the friend is inevitable.

Until this marvel happens, it is required of the national profile to be polite, at least for the sake of decency and decorum. For the ‘damsel is in deep distress…

      “The other day, Minister Athulathmudali, speaking at a function at Amparai, referred to the communal harmony in that region and referred to the ideals of D.S.Senanayake. There are many ideas of D.S.Senanayake, not publicized today, nor known or appreciated by the present day politicians. In the present context of ‘communal disagreements’ it may be relevant to revive memories of this great man’s ideas and ideals for a united nation.

      The writer was asked to design and prepare plans for the construction of Gal Oya Valley and Walawe Schemes in 1945. When the designs were completed I was asked to go to America to get the designs checked by that famous ‘Dam Designer’ – Dr. Savage of Denver – and to select a suitable firm and negotiate a contractor to build the two schemes. I was dispatched to Denver with half a million dollars of public money in my personal account to carry out the assignment.

      In 1947, when Independence was being discussed, I wrote to the then Minister of Agriculture – D.S. Senanayake – suggesting that one way of commemorating the ‘new slice of political independence’ was to construct an entirely new irrigation project where a new pattern of development and settlement could be undertaken and that the choice was either Gal Oya or Walawe. The reply came asking me to finalize the details of Gal Oya, negotiate a contract, and get back to Colombo. Morrison Knudson of Boise, Idaho, was selected as the contracting firm and a target estimate of 10.5 million dollars was negotiated for the construction of the project.”

      “On return to the country and during a discussion on the two schemes, I asked ‘Why do we go to the Eastern Province to start a new settlement scheme, when there is over population and a land hunger in the Southern Province?’ The answer was ‘They are all Sinhala. If I want to build a new independent Ceylon all communities must be brought together so they understand each other…without that there cannot be one people, one country…and the ideal setting for this is the Eastern Province, where there are already Tamils, Muslims and a scatter of Sinhala people living harmony…I want to consolidate this peace and communal harmony by bringing in more Sinhala families to live and understand the Tamils and Muslims and work towards a common goal… As a matter of fact Batticaloa Tamils do not like the Jaffna Tamils…The Jaffna Tamils have their own reservations and they do not like the Tambimuttus, Casinaders etc. etc. of the East… So I want to settle some Jaffna peasants also in Gal Oya valley so that they will mix and understand their Eastern brethren.”

      “This, a summary, was his ideal. The development work went apace. Land was settled with Sinhala families on the Left Bank, Muslims on the Right Bank, Sinhala around Digavape and Malwattu Vihare and Jaffna Tamils around Kalmunai. Never for a moment these different communities and sections of a community thought differently that they were anything but one community with common goals – till 1956.

      ‘Sinhala Only’ became a political cry and the first language riots started in the Valley in 1956 and the dream of D.S. – ‘One People, One Country’ was shattered by this single phrase coined by the power hungry politicians. From that day onwards, murder, looting, arson became a way of life with us. Not that D.S. did not care for the Sinhala language. His conviction was ‘Leave the language issue alone. Tamils will master the Sinhala language better than you and I and beat us in the game – don’t force it down their throat. Anybody would resent such force.’ The wisdom of this great man we realize today. What the language issue has caused to divide the two communities and destroy each other, we experience since that cry ‘Sinhala Only’ was raised in 1956.”

        This is from the Lankan who designed the Galoya-Walave project

        He was a young civil engineer just out of Cambridge and was given the task ………… he was also an architect and designed the Thewatte/Ragama Basilica as well ………… His paternal side was Buddhists (strong Buddhists) but he designed many churches for free ……. although I don’t think the basilica was one of his best designs …………..

        Reading some comments I find that the Galoya scheme is a very contentious issue for the Tamils as well as for some Sinhalese

        I suppose, this was the thinking back then ……….. and I don’t think there was any ulterior motive other than to bring all the communities together ………… but it’s a free world and people are free to come to their own conclusions

        I thought I’ll just post that for the historical record …………….

    How true is Dutta Gamini’s prophecy….
    He would have been called a real Dr Gamini unlike Dr Ranil.if he is around today.
    By the way all those cruel nasty , Molestations, Violations, Violence ,Rape , Pilfering and Trashing on my Mother Lankawe were done not by the 70 % of the Native Inhabitant Population.
    All those nasty acts were done by Cholas, Pandiyans, Portugese, Netherlanders, English, Cinnamon Peelers, and Pirahaparan with the help of the Diasporians and the Hindians.
    Vishwa seems to have got it all back to front.
    It is the Patriotic determination of the 70 % who saved their Mother, after all those evil deeds.
    And still could keep her in good shape for Dr Ranil to walk in with his rouge Brigade .
    And bring his mate Dr Mahendran from from Singapore to look after our Mother Lankawe’s Treasury.
    Do I have to mention what Dr Mahendran did to that poor violated Lady Lankawe?.
    Dr Mahendran could nick LKR 11 Billion from her in the first twelve months..
    And awarded it to his Son in Law Arjun and Brother in Law Jeffry ( Massina) to buy 24 A Class businesses in Colombo.
    And reward Dr Ranil’s mates, 118 of them Bonuses ranging from LKR 1 Million Min each .
    And even Super Luxury Apartment in the Monarch worth LKR 150 Million to some..
    If we are to believe Vishwamithra , poor Lady Mother Lanka would have been lying flat on her back with a Drip through the Nose.
    Wonder whether that Poodle Club Baby got a “Pad” too, for writing that Book to teach Dr Ranil how to Trade Yahapalana Sovereign Bonds…

      Vishwamithra,

      Simply put ………. It’s brilliant metaphor for the post-colonial Lanka

      But judging by the “violence” of comments :)) ………… it seems the irony is lost on the native “intellectuals” ……….. as usual

      The unfortunate gullible backward poor who are susceptible to this great deception that’s played on them will end up – they are almost there – putting on “cultural-shows” for visitors! ……… visit any Aboriginal, Native-American, Inuit …………. reservations …. observe how the “advancing” “civilizations” have left people behind ……………

      People who have the “smarts” avoid an honest day’s work by ……… getting into native garb ……… and putting on native-ist shows for the natives in the daytime …….. and “training” their kids in “non-native” ways behind the scenes they know which side their bread is buttered ……. :))

      If people are happy who are we to complain?

      It’s just the ittsy-bittsy insincerity …….. that’s a wee bit disconcerting …………… for one’s feeling of mental Nirvana ………….

      Dr Mahendran, Dr. Ranil, Arjun Jeffry, Ravi all added up 11 Billion.

    We believe that if not for Rajapaksa the batterred body of the damsel for 30 long years would have been totally devoured by now.
    Psychologists have yet to identify this strange phenomenon of inconsumable hatred towards a family giving rise to incomparable literary creativity displayed by the likes of Vishvamitra, Thisaranee Gunasekara and Sarath de Alwis.
    I am yet to see their word gymnastics on Jaffna library, 1983 and 1989. How the perpetrators are crowned with apex polical power and how the victims themselves have become their main torchbearers.

        I consider the most horendous, utterly uncivilized shameful events that took place on this soil outside the 30 year LTTE terror are burning down of the Jaffna library, 83′ black July and 89′ Bheeshanaya . All happened during UNP regimes and carried out by UNP thugs. Ranil Wicramasinge was a powerful minister throughput. These phycopathic trio never use their hateful pen over these terrible events that changed the history and culpability of UNP. Instead wollow in consumate hatred 24×7 towards Rajapakas who saved this country from the abyss.

Anyone who opposes dismembering this small island into race/religion based enclaves and promotes a country of absolute equality for all with freedom to live anywhere is a racist to you. In my case what is absolutely unpardonable is exposing Tamil hypocrisy of this desire of majority of you people to live among the Sinhala Buddhists while at the same time promoting a separate Homeland.

          Dear Native,
          Soma has a clearly valid point.
          Tamils are the rich , if not the richest people in Colombo.
          Their average income must be even better than our current Per capita GDP.
          And they are the majority there,
          I am talking strictly about the TNA leaders and .their supporters.
          TNA Leader I remember bragging about having 90 % of the Tamil population under him, when he became the Opposition Leader of the Yahapalana Parliament.
          Obviously I don’t think they are interested in a level playing field .
          May be what they want is a special playing Field ….

              There is no such thing as ‘Sinhala Buddhism’. There are Sinhala Buddhists’ or ‘Buddhist Sinhalese’ such as Sinhala Christians or Christian Tamils but there is no Sinhala Christianity or Tamil Christianity. There is no American Christianity but there are American Christians. You don’t say American Christians dropped atom bombs on civilians, you say Americans dropped atom bombs on civilians.
              I don’t see anyone preaching Christianity or love of Jesus to Americans.
              Sinhala Buddhism is a combination concocted by hate purveyors like you with the crafty intention of killing two birds with one stone.

    IC has come to know the Bitchy Lankawe. China is holding on the hair and have all its things done. Russia is learning how to get things done by Lankawe. It used the tea and asbestos in proper way to bring Lankawe in line. This is forcing Lankawe to look for an extremely manipulative Ambassador. India could not do anything when defense Ministry Media computer portrayed an obscene graphic of Ex. PM Manmohan Singh and late CM Jayalalitha. They could not do anything because Sonia did not allow Indian government anything when Ponny called Karunanidhi as a clown. But China used the same computers to grab the Colombo Pong Cing. It used similar techniques to buy the Hangbangtota harbor too. While America and India are taking care of each other, China and Russia has been taken care of themselves. Sooner or later India and America too will understand what they two are doing and to them & they will fix them too. That time Lankawe will understand that ” one can fool some people all the time and all the people for some time, but not all the people all time”

Except for some Banana republics Lanka takes the infamous glory of regression since Independence.The worst of them can still claim some inches of progression except for Lanka.Politician after politician which ever party they belong to have only served their self interest. In the mean time abused, looted and violated the rights of people and country. The picture depicts all. The sad situation of the country in the hands of the clowns shown above. A journey towards the bottom Starting with British qualified Royals(SWRD, Senanayakas and JR) hijacked by the Rajapaksas and now left with the clowns shown above.Then you have the retarded public cheering all the way not knowing the reality.

    It is reported China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC), the Chinese firm that built the Norochcholai coal-power plant, is involved in many corrupt transactions.

    It is further reported that the country head of the above Chinese company Ludong Wang and vice president of CMEC Lee, are involved in these transactions.

    During investigations, it has been revealed that USD 80 million had been paid to three former powerful persons connected to the previous government in order to conceal the flaws of the construction of Norochcholai plant.

    It is not possible to reveal the identities of the three persons who accepted money from CMEC, since the investigations have not been finished yet.

    Through the investigations, it has been revealed that the abovementioned transaction has taken place in Singapore.

    Not only did China expose the corrupt deeds of vice president of CMEC Lee, but also he was sentenced to 18 years in prison over corrupt deals in Angola and Sri Lanka.

    It is reported that certain powerful politicians in Sri Lanka are receiving vast amounts of money to influence the investigations carried out by the Financial Crimes Investigation Division with regard to Ludong Wang.

    Meanwhile, it is discussed among the Colombo’s business community that Ludong Wang is attempting to flee the country before the Criminal Investigation Department or Financial Crimes Investigation Division question him.

    After the corrupt deals between China Harbor and the former SL government were revealed, CMEC has panicked and Ludong Wang is attempting prevent the world from learning about CMEC.

    ‘However, the first of her violations began with a man called SWRD Bandaranaike’,

    How come everybody has forgotten that both the VLSSP and the UNP adopted Sinhala Only as their official policy? If SWRD had not instituted Sinhala Only, the UNP would have. And how is it everyone has forgotten the UNP’s determined attacks on SWRD to prevent the reasonable use of Tamil? JR’s march on Kandy etc. All of them are villains.

    This metaphor of the country’s history and events after independence as a 70 year old ‘damsel whose insalubrious and pathetic violation the body and soul’ is even more disgusting than the weird thoughts crossing the feeble mind of our uncle Emil.

    Viswamitra, write under your real name (if you are a dick capable of doing those things to Mother Lanka).. Otherwise we will condemn you as a coward throwing rocks at independence and land reform, hiding behind a bogus name.

    Come out from behind the bushes at Halgolla, you coward.

      Nat Winter, Interesting observations from someone with a name like yours! Familiar name indeed. Your predecessors must be those who settled on our lands at Baddegama and later went away in the 50s to Australia etc..

      You are right. This view that ‘Mother Lanka’ would have been better off under the coloniliser’s boot rather than gaining independence in 1948 is held by many ‘left overs’ of the Portuguese, Dutch and British hoards who sucked our blood for 500 years.

      They’d better know that as a nation with a history like ours, we will never tolerate foreign theft of our wealth a day longer after we won our fight. Thanks to the Japanese, the blood suckers had to pack up and go, and they are still smarting. Tough titties, Porten, Kondachchi and all the others with that burden on their back.

    Vishwamithra!
    The Damsel, a beautiful figure, was initially ‘pinched’ in the buttox by D>S Senanyake and Co who passed the Citizenship bill against the Upcountry Tamils( Because they were Tamil speaking-Not Sinhal speaking) and ‘carressed’ her Neck’ and subsequently tried to strangle her throat by commencing the Colonisation of the Tamil areas so as to change the texture of the Tamil population in the East. The damsel was bruised all over. But nobody bothered about it ,including the so called Ceylon Tamils. Only person who Realised the danger was SGV. CHELVANAYAKAM who perhaps attempted to stop further ‘advancement’ by polite and peaceful means. Unfortunately his mission was not accomplished. SWRD went further and removed the ‘damsel,s’ blouse by bringing the Sinhala only act. Which was not only to the detriment of the ‘Damsel’s’ chastity but also was an open invitation to others to go further and ‘enjoy’. DS fell down from the faithful horse he used to ride regularly and died ,SWRD was shot and killed by the Buddhist priest whom he brought into limelight to safeguard himself. Pathetic indeed . But the ‘Damsel’ continued to live half naked expecting help from someone who may cloth her fully and give her a decent life. But she was pinched all over by various other politicians too and left to her destiny. Last but not least, the Brothers, Children and their kith and kin came into power and raped the Damsel without mercy. Finally those who came into power with the promise of REHABILITATING the Damsel in 2015 , failed miserably due to their IMPOTENCY. Let’s hope that the Damsel in Distress will be laid to rest decently.
    If DS conducted himself in a manner to Treat all Communities Alike without Subtle Racism, today the Damsel in Distress would have been a Highly Respected lady. ‘AN ASIAN MIRACLE’ with glowing tribute from the GLOBE. Amen. .

    The ‘rape’ was ‘commenced’ long before SWRDB, by D.S.Senanayake with his so-called “multi purpose” Gal Oya project.
    DSS had promised Soulbury that there would be complete equality of citizens.
    But, his only project was planting citizens from down south, in the Gal Oya basin – each family was awarded five acres of prime irrigable land.
    Very few from the eastern province benefitted.

    DSS ( “Father of the nation” ) thus set the stage for the prolonged ‘rape’ of Ma Lanka which persists to this day – only, now they do it in style, unobtrusively – only the fools get caught.

      DSS was a Thomian and perhaps the most distinguished Thomian the school has ever produced.

      If not for this man, the LTTE would have won the war. That’s why the Tamils hate him so much.

      Because of the Gal Oya project several border villages were Sinhalized (Thankfully). The Sinhalized border villages proved so crucial during the war.

      Always remember, if a Sinhalese leader is hated by the Tamils, then he has to be a good leader.

      Father of the nation did not want to be even a step father to the Tamils .

    Vishwamithra has the Thomas Paine quote ~ “The real man smile in trouble,…..”
    Mother Lanka (nee Ceylon) did smile and say “It is birth pain and will be forgotten” but that was not to be.
    ~ “……gathers strength from distress,…….”.
    The people causing the distress are being exposed – often by themselves
    ~ “……and grows brave by reflection.”
    Reflection and rational thoughts have just taken roots – plenty of growing up to do.

    Here are the Podiyans of Mahinda bragging to each other how they raped the Damsel. One is Mahinda’s actual Podiyan, the others are wannabes. Out of this only four actually raped. Ranga was the pimp.
