Hoo-Sane Goes Insane

By H. L. D. Mahindapala

H. L. D. Mahindapala

Mr. Izeth Hussein’s tendency to brag about his insignificant – and fictitious — glories has not ended with the claim of being one of the five great diplomats of the world. He has now extended his boasting to over-rating his writing skills and intellectual prowess which seems to exist only in his imagination. He even tries to imitate my penchant for playing with words. I trivialise names to poke fun. Twisting the phonetics and the meanings of names helps me to effectively target my quarry. Mr.Hussein tries to imitate me by calling me “Tuan Mahindapalan” but fails to achieve any witty play on my name. His best effort has ended in casting a plain racist slur. After all his “intellectual” endeavours he has gone only to far end crude racism. It is the crudity of his Talibanist racism that exposes him as a third-rate hack who lacks the ability to come up with a word play to target me intelligently,or with any degree of sophistication. It is his type of barbaric racism that paved the path to the destruction of the Bamian Buddhas who stood as enlightened sentinels of the ancient routes to civilisation.

The irony is that this pseudo-intellectual was the first to object to any jocular reference to Muslims. In high dudgeon he has branded even pop ditties as a mark of anti-Muslim racism. The pop baila that referred to the shape of the thoppiya of the Thumbiyas. (“Thumbigay thoppiya bum-buwa-wagay”) was condemned by him as a manifestation of Sinhala racist extremism. But he has no qualms in dragging a fictitious Malay identity of my father and the identity of my Tamil wife – two issues which have no relevance to any sane discussion on the core question of the erosion of national sovereignty – to cast aspersions on my Sinhaleseness. Mr. Hussein’s decision to go down this canine (balu) path demonstrates that cheap racism has become the last refuge of intellectually bankrupt humbugs. “I am told” (to use his excuse) that this tendency to go down to low racist levels has been caused by the quirky decision of the operator who circumcised the tip end of Hussein’s brain when he could not find his pygmy prepuce. Only a half-wit like him, with a tip-cut brain, would condemn racism against the Muslims and then, in the same breath, downgrade me by equating me with Malays and Tamils in a manner that is degrading to the Malays and Tamils.

I am, of course, indifferent to him calling me “Tuan Mahindapalan.” A rose by another name smells the same. But, as seen in the comments of readers attached to his article, it is he who is he facing the flak of the Tamils and Malays. He thought he was smart in targeting me with his racist attacks but his racism has offended the sensitive Malays and Tamils. His racist remarks and the reaction to it by the readers question both his writing skills and his intellect. I make no apologies for defending the much-maligned Sinhala-Buddhists. I am noted for being in the forefront of debunking mytho-maniacs like Mr. Hussein, who have been vilifying and denigrating Sinhala-Buddhists like the way he belittles the Malays and Tamils. When there are racist Neanderthals like Hussein demeaning Malay-Muslims is it surprising to see Tamil barbarians like Prabhakaran going on the rampage slaughtering innocent Muslims at prayers in the East?

I suppose the fault is mine for expecting too much from a tip-cut brain. Instead of arguing with me on core issues Mr. Hussein and his anti-Sinhala-Buddhist gang have diverted attention to mendacious and irrelevant concoctions attributed to my identity. Despite his boasts of being a writer and an intellectual (like the way he claimed to be one of the five great diplomats of the world) he has demonstrated amply that his circumcised brain is totally incapable of holding two thoughts together to produce some sense and coherence to his utterances. I shall deal with this aspect later. But for the moment consider his claim that I “specializes in personal scurrility” and then proceeds to state that I am a “schizophrenic” Sinhala-Buddhist because my father is a Malay and my wife is a Tamil. Now who is wallowing in “personal scurrility”? And who will accept, except his claque, that casting racist slurs explains my commitment to defend vilified Sinhala-Buddhism unjustly? In plain language, he lacks the capacity to wield the English “kaduwa” effectively, or play with words, to cross swords with me. Resorting to low racist remarks, dragging my father and my wife, is an obvious sign of his pathetic attempt to punch over his pin-head weight.

I admit that I swing the English language whichever way I can to expose the contradictions, irrationalities, lies (like that of Jehan (Pacha) Perera), bogus mono-causal theories (like that of H. L. Seneviratne), humbuggery of pretentious intellectuals like Mr.Hussein and their ilk. Mr. Hussein accuses me of “personal scurrility” because he can’t bear the heat of my language. If so he should not step into the kitchen, as they say. I must also confess that I would direct my language aggressively at the writers and not to their parents or wives. This, however, is nothing new to me. Prof. Carlo Fonseka was the first to drag in my wife’s Tamil identity as the source of my commitment to Sinhala-Buddhist cause when I branded him as “Con-seka” instead of Fonseka. That is the difference between my writing and my opponents. I attack them directly and they attack my father and wife. I have also demonstrated amply my ability to poke fun at them by playing with the phonetics and meanings of their name. My punning, or my verbal thrusts, no doubt, gets under their skin. Not having the linguistic ability to get back at me they cast racist slurs, or attack my father and my wife. They retreat into puerile psychobabble because (1) I guess it is easy to divert attention to wives and fathers than to engage at an intellectual level with logical, rational and persuasive arguments and (2) their only defence is to cloud the contested central issues by throwing mud.

However, after reading Mr. Hussein’s latest rant I thought of taking a leaf out of his book and to follow his example uninhibitedly to put him at the receiving end of his own linguistic style. Besides, by dragging my father’s and my wife’s names he has opened the vituperative gates for me to use his racist language with no holds barred. He may not like what is coming but since my “Sinhala-Tuan” father plays an indelible role in his traumatized psyche I must take him back to his past to make him understand his own roots. In reflecting on what made Mr. Hussein go berserk I was wondering how this well-kept secret of my father being a Muslim, as alleged by him, ever got out. It was known only to Hussein’s mother. And I was told that she was convinced of his Malayness only after she had tested and found cocksure proof of his circumcision. In fact, I was also told that my Sinhala-“Tuan” father used to be a frequent visitor at his mother’s place in the night, just nine months before Mr.Hussein was born!.

I hope to reveal further details of my Sinhala-Malay father’s relationship with his Moorish mother when Mr. Hussein returns with his next reply. It is only fair to feed Mr. Hussein tip-cut brain with the details of his mother’s and his wife’s proclivities in instalments as he doesn’t have the mental capacity to digest all of it in one gulp. At this stage I will also desist from revealing anything about his mother’s legal husband, or where he was when my Sinhala-“Tuan” father was visiting his mother late in the nights. I repeat, I am imitating Mr. Hussein reluctantly purely to make him understand that two can play the same game. I hope he likes getting a taste of his own medicine, eh Mr. Hussein?

Mr. Hussein also exhibits unashamedly an egregious ego for writing unsolicited advertisements for himself. He goes on his ego trips while talking of my “undistinguished career” as a journalist. It is not for me to grade my professional qualities. I leave it to others to judge me. Some value my contributions. Some don’t. I can’t win them all. No one can. But he is never backward in coming forward to boast about his literary and diplomatic tid-bits. He cites, for instance, Regi Siriwardena as the critic who had commended his article on Vikram Seth as “brilliant”. But I remember Regi downgrading Jane Austen as a “boring writer” in his public debate with me. Regi accused me of reading Jane Austen in the night and then returning to the editorial office of The Observer in the morning to hammer the daylights out of the political nincompoops of the day. Regi, of course, had distinguished himself as a critic of the arts in the days when he was the leader writer for the Daily News, selling his talents to Esmond Wickremesinghe, (Ranil Wickremesinghe’s father) who was the power behind the UNP throne. Before he sat down to pontificate in his editorials he would sit at the feet of Esmond Wickremesinghe and get the political line of the day. That’s how this pro-Marxist intellectual earned his crust.

Of course, as stated by Karl Mannheim, intellectuals are on sale to the highest bidder and Regi was no exception. But when he wrote that Jane Austen was “boring” he was deliberately lying to get at me. He was riled by my critical evaluation of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park which I consider to be her best creative work. Rather than being dismissed as “boring” her novels have reached the peak of popularity today with practically all her novels turned into successful films and/or plays. Even Bollywood had done an imitation of her classic Pride and Prejudice by producing Bride and Prejudice. Above all, F. R. Leavis, one of highest authorities of the English language, had rated her among the great novelists of English literature. Regi can’t hold a candle to Leavis. No one other than the little frogs in the Sri Lankan wells have heard of him. So to get a certificate from Regi is okay but it is not the crowning glory of English literature. There is nothing in it to crow about. Regi was the kind of critic who used to write scripts for Lester James Peiris’s films and praise them as masterpieces in his reviews – a case of monkey praising his own “tale” (pun intended).

Once again I wish to take a leaf from Hussein’s book (quite reluctantly though) to compare my literary record with that Mr. Hussein. Predictably, he downgrades me as a journalist and a writer. It is to expose his lies that I am forced to compare his literary scores with my record. He claims that I attack him because of my “envious hatred” which, according to him, originates from my jealousy of his incomparable writing skills and diplomatic coups. To my knowledge he has an honours degree in English from the Peradeniya University. I have only a basic degree from Melbourne University. He claims that Prof. Carlo Fonseka has commended his “clarity and precision” in writing. This is the extent of Mr. Hussein’s his claim to fame.

On the other hand, my poems have been published in respected literary magazines in UK, Australia and Sri Lanka. The London Magazine, (August 1957, Vol, 4. No.8), the leading literary magazine of post-War England, edited by John Lehmann of the legendary Bloomsbury group, carried my poem along with the writings of literary lions like Roy Campbell, Colin Wilson, Geoffrey Gorer who were some of the best of the best writers of the time. Prof. D.C. R. A. Goonetilleke published my poems in his anthology of Sri Lankan English Literature. Queensland University published another one of my poems in its collection of Ethnic Poetry, along with a critical review for the guidance of students. Journal of South Asian Studies (Vol. XX, 1997) linked to University of New England published one of my articles on Sri Lanka. Any English student/scholar would give their right arm to be published in any one of these publications. Put together, it is certainly worth more than an honours degree from Peradeniya, if I may say so without meaning to boast. I am not aware of Mr. Hussein’s literary achievements other than the bits and pieces of readable bureaucratese presented to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Perhaps, he can point to any leading literary or academic publication in the English-speaking West that has recognised his scholarly or literary abilities?

Writing reports to the Foreign Ministry and reviews here and there doesn’t take him above the local level of a Regi Siriwardene, or a Carlo Fonseka. In the absence of quality creative writing he retires smugly to bask in the glory of bureaucratic reports written to please another set of bureaucrats. That’s his idea of being a great writer. Ego inflated with the back-slapping of his fellow bureaucratic hacks he concludes that it his writings that make me “envious”. What a joker? You envy something which you do not possess. But why should I be “envious” of his skill in writing reports to the Foreign Ministry when my literary works have been recognised in the competitive, peer reviewed literary field of the English-speaking world. Besides, is there any earthly reason for superior beings to be envious of the inferior mediocrities?

So much for the self-proclaimed greatness of Mr. Hussein. Now let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of some of the core issues of sovereignty which sparked off this correspondence. He says that there has been a steady erosion of sovereignty since 1945. Examples cited by him are: Idi Amin overthrown by Nyerere. And Bokassa overthrown by his former colonial masters, the French.Taking these as examples, where one state invades and overthrows the existing regime, the question can be raised, using the warped logic of Mr. Hussein, to probe whether that the overthrow of King Rajasingha on the pretext of removing the tyranny was “an erosion of sovereignty” or whether it was a naked act of imperialism. At the same time, can it not be argued that the “erosion of sovereignty” began from the time the Tamils across the Palk Straits started invading Sri Lanka in the pre-Christian era? Or when the city states of Greece invaded their neighbouring city states? In any case, is the periodic loss of sovereignty due to foreign conquests is an “erosion of sovereignty” or a total loss of sovereignty? “Erosion of sovereignty” occur when the sovereign state loses some minor aspects of its sovereignty due to the intrusions of economic, legal, or political forces from abroad, leaving the broad structures, bases and institutions of sovereign state power intact. Even in his examples of Uganda and the Central African Republic sovereignty has returned to the people after the removal of the barbaric rulers of both states.

A change of regime does not necessarily mean a loss of sovereignty. But Mr. Hussein’s examples refer only to the overthrow of regimes. That process has been going on ever since the “states” surfaced in the political landscape from the pre-Westphalian era. Pumped up by his false premise, he jumps to the idiotic conclusion that Sri Lanka must surrender to the foreign forces unleashed by the UNHRC because the trend is for sovereignty to erode. Did Cuba lose it sovereignty because the American bully stood over it? And was not the Westphalian concept of the state affirmed when USA was finally forced to recognise Castro’s Cuba? According to Mr.Hussein Cuba should have surrendered to America because Westphalian state had lost its raison d’etre.

      Dont worry, the like ilk while living on Doll have plenty of time to pen until no ink remains. But this creature has not learnt to bring that constructively- though the man s not a teenager but one in his later day life to this date. Why not this man return to the country today- almost nothing like former abusiveness toward the press freedom prevails inthe country today. There he could perhaps change his attitudes rather than being cornered to a cell located on australian soil. If Dayan Jayathilaka can continue his verbal diahreeah being int he country, irrespctive varied attacks he experience today, why not M pala thinks of a return to the country he was born to ?

    Oh the poor Tuan Mahindapala seems rather hurt as Mr. Hussein has exposed his Malay ancestry .Tuan lies at the fall of a hat.He has conveniently forgotten that lie of how ACS Hameed in recognition of his “abilities” promised to send him as Ambassador to Sweden after the recall of Neville Jayaweera !! Tuan has conveniently forgotten the fact that Hameed was not the minister in 1994 December , when Jayaweera was recalled.In his rush to project himself as being ” great” he has hoped that facts too could be twisted.The more he rants about his “greatness,”,the more empty he sounds.

    Tuan’Mahindapala’s Malay connections are obvious by his looks and no DNA tests are required to prove this fact.Just take a look at his eyes,their shape and the dreamy look that comes out.Its sure Javanese.He should be proud of his Malay connection.After all the Malays are are a great people.Why is he shy to admit that his father was a humble worker in the CMC fire brigade and that he schooled at Zahira College?There is is nothing wrong in either of them.Then he admits to the infidelity of his own late father , describing in detail the poor departed man’s nocturnal trists.Which son would do that ?.It shows he has not forgiven even his father for the accident of his Malay blood ties.He then ridicules another dead man , the great Regi Siriwardene.All this exposes serious character flaws.

    Anyway Tuan Mahindapala cannot change the accident of his birth.He seems equally coy about his Tamil wife, the gracious Mrs.Meenachi Mahindapala who has looked after him for so long.This is a shame. This proves the well established fact that a half breed makes a full blooded racist.Tuan Mahindapala is a living embodiment of this fact.He is not the first and certainly would not be the last.He is also a pathological lier too.

    A pathetic squabble between two has-beens slinging shit at each other.

    With this article HLD establishes himself as a cad and a scoundrel. These faults are probably what Ranil W forsaw in the man many years ago when he wisely turned him down for a much sought diplomatic post in Canberra.

    As an aside, HLD may require psychiatric intervention to rid him of his unhealthy preoccupation with circumcision.

    Those illustrious long-gone editors of the Observer must be spinning in their graves as they see the murky depths plumbed by one of their ilk.

      Such a boastful, cock a hoop braggart crowing about himself makes such disgusting reading, propelling this idiot to the Editor’s chair must be one of Premadasa’s most forgettable accomplishments during those years of his Presidency.

      Scoundrel is too decent a word to describe him, and a Cad is altogether too much of a compliment.

      He is absolutely the pits, if you ask me; a psychiatrist’s dream!

    What fun. Now, for “the circumcised brain” to launch his return fight with the colonized mind of the Malay Tuan, living in Australia, who proclaims his ability to fight with the English kaduwa, is an expert on Jane Austen and has written poetry in English. All this is of no concern to the readers except for the pure entertainment provided by the two comedians.

    Whatever said and done Hussain is very much in Sri Lanka while Mahindapala has abandoned his motherland and hiding in Australia and flinging those boomerangs from down under and as the boomerang does is coming back to whack him.
    Hussain was a respectable diplomat who was assigned the plum post of Ambassador in Moscow and hails from a well renowned Moor family held in high esteem in the community the son of the late and great Y.M.Naina Marikar a renowned businessman owner of another famous shop Zitan Stores in Main Street.
    If Mahindapala is a descendant of a Malay as alleged he too should be proud of the fact as the contribution of the Malays in Sri Lanka is worthy of praise the late T.B.Jayah and justice Akbar to mention two great Malays.
    So whats all the fuss about?

      Mahindapala had to leave his beloved motherland because his vituperative shitty brand of ‘journalism’ produced one too many adversaries who were seeking an urgent opportunity to clarify matters, preferably in a dark cul-de-sac down Panchikawatte. Some intrepid opportunists nearly performed circumcision on HLD in Geneva. Narrow escape! So much for ‘How to make the grade without going abroad’.

      At least with IH he was a diplomat, he served his country, and he has returned to grace his homeland. Mahindapala, on the other hand, used, and was used by others to recycle news and opinions, and as a mercenary liyanamahathaya hack, to do other peoples dirty work ie getting up people’s noses. His natural abode is in the gutter press.

      How queer that both of them are conducting their spat in their second language. Warts and all. Are they hoping to impress us?

    The father of Mahindapala was an Ambulance Driver. The late Gamini Dissanayake,who was a victim of the poison pen of Mahindapala,in the 90s revealed this.Also his wife,a Batticaloa Tamil,was married earlier to a MLT who worked in the Dept:of Health.
    In the 90s he was given an given an apartment at the NHDA building by Sirisena Cooray,so that he can wield his poison pen to all those who were against Premadasa.

    Why are these people writing like this? I mean, these are people of the diplomatic corps! They should show a better example to the countrymen. It is as I feared: our diplomatic lot have been sitting in their parlors and categorizing people. Aren’t they ashamed!

    Mr. Hussein shamefully started it of course. I would have expected Mahindapala, whilst putting Hussein his place, to not succumb to too much offense. I mean, Mahindapala could have said something like :”Thanks for suggesting that I have some Malay blood, but unfortunately I am pure Sinhalese.”

    Once I asked a coastal Catholic Phd (who was going on and on about general racism in Europe), how he dealt with it. His answer; “We Sinhalese are Aryans. So we do not have that problem.”………..Gosh!

    Sinhalese, YOU are the master race (in numbers) but you act like a threatened minority! It is easy for person bent on racist provocation, to say something to demean the Sinhalese. I mean, Sinhalese fear of racial insults is so pathological, that a person like Chandrika wants to build a land-bridge, either in an effort to cure the racial psychosis, or teach the Sinhalese a lesson, because she is angry – wrong way to go, of course.

      Really, most Sinhalese are Aryans. But, they are jet black, like the guys in the cricket team. All Sinhalese, like Mahindapala, are pure Sinhalese, but have some Indian blood. They have to wipe this blood off. So, they have to go on killing Tamils to prove that they are really pure Sinhalese. Same problem with Mahindapala. But, really don’t we have more to worry about than these two old jokers writing about whose English is superior and who has read more Jane Austen and been praised by white men. These are men of the past who do not matter. As to their being members of the diplomatic corps, that is a fiction. They got their positions through political patronage.

      Ramona TF – You write “Mr Hussain shamefully started it of course”. He started it with the ridiculous accusation that I went around boasting that I am one of the five best diplomats in the world.I had to correct that, and did so in a very brief rejoinder. Otherwise people who have no sense of fair play, of elementary justice, would choose to believe him. – IH

        Mr. Hussein,

        Yes, it was a rather brief rejoinder…..(need not have been there….but we all make slips…..shameful thing, of course…..).

        (Having lived in SE Asia, the Malays usually look down on all of us South Asians – same big noses, pop-out eyes, and andaray-punadray accents of both North and South, even if some are a bit lighter skinned…..those people would rather die that admit to any Kaling blood(racist word for S. Asians)…..but things are changing nowadays, I hear).

    As Spring Koha has noted, this is indeed a ‘pathetic squabble’. I believe these two warriors have met in combat before, and this is certainly not the first time that HLDM has taken to IH in this fashion. But this latest stoush between two ageing curmudgeons brings neither of them any credit. And, as for us the readers, I think there is little for us to choose between the two; it’s a case of the proverbial six of one or half a dozen of the other.

    Here are two old men, ostensibly educated – and one imagines they are sane – writing in a manner that one might associate with those of lesser learning. The language is hardly edifying and much of what they have had to say is well ‘below the belt’. One has a right to expect educated persons to be able to express disagreement in a civilised way.
    HLDM has shown that once he latches on to a target he is like a dog with a bone –simply won’t let go of it, and what follows from his pen is not one article attacking his target but a series. We have seen him do this with, among others, Ranil Wickremasinghe and Radhika Coomaraswamy.

    IH’s recent comments also show him in poor light. He has seen fit to raise the matter of HLDM’s alleged Malay paternity. That is simply not on. IH has said that at the conclusion of the Non Aligned Summit in 1976, “G.K.Reddy, a famous Indian journalist of that time, said that” IH “was one of the five best diplomats in the world”. Raising the question of someone’s paternity in the way that IH has, is not what you would associate with diplomacy; a diplomat who did that should rank for inclusion not among the top 5 but among the 5 worst!

    HLDM and IH have gone to great lengths to impress us with their accomplishments but both have appeared juvenile with their attempts to do so. There is no need to flaunt their CVs to gain credibility and respect for their views – just good sense..

    Both of them seem afflicted with inflated egos. I wonder what it is that makes journalists and diplomats have exaggerated opinions about themselves. Does the contact they have in the course of their work, with the big and the powerful, act like a drug that affects rational thought?

    Our erstwhile eminent Lankans of higher education (even the non-diplomats), usually like to enquire into fellow Lankans education, brains, family-background, and standard deviation of genes. The name of the game is “Intimidation.” And nobody dares complain or check them in fear of being accused of not respecting elders, authority, or money and position. This…..travesty rubs off onto the next generation. Nobody can rest easy and feel normal. It is truly a suffering to be Sri Lankan. Let’s hope the generation below 30 will have the courage to stand up against this perverse Sri Lankan megalomania.
