Tamil Theology Upgraded Prabhakaran & Downgraded Jesus: Part III

The first shot in the North-South war , a.k.a. Eelam War, rang out on July 27, (Friday), 1975. Its vibrations shook the foundations of the sleepy villages and towns of Jaffna. It was never going to be the same again in Jaffna. The shock waves shook Jaffna not because the shot was fired at Ponnalai Varadraja Perumal Temple, Jaffna in a time of peace. It was because of the political implications of killing an unarmed pilgrim visiting the temple. Fired at point blank range it killed Alfred Duraiyappah, the mild mannered Mayor of Jaffna, who was alighting from his car for his usual Friday prayers. As the subsequent events confirmed, it signalled the end of an era and the beginning of uncertainty, fear and ominous times to come.

The sound of the first shot continues to echo even today because it was also the first shot fired by Velupillai Prabhakaran. He had just turned 21 then. His first shot removed any inhibitions he had about killing human beings. From then onwards his career rose to dizzy heights not only because of his own ability to kill but also because of his ability to get others to kill on his behalf. As his confidence in killing grew he aspired to be his celluloid hero Clint Eastwood – the Hollywood idol who fixed everything with his gun. He turned his killing others and others dying for him into a cult. Jaffna took to the cult of death like duck to water and it was never the same again.

The killing of Alfred Duraiyappah marks the beginning of the North-South war. It was the very the first shot in Prabhakaran’s war against the rest which he waged for 33 years. He emerged as the Thalaivar (the leader), leaving behind the other rival militants, purely on his ruthless capacity to kill. He had no qualms in eliminating any other Tamil rival as long as it helped to make him “the sole representative of the Tamils”. Eventually, he wiped out the Tamil leadership that passed the Vadukoddai Resolution (May 14, 1976) that empowered him with the gun. He also emerged at the propitious time when the Jaffna elite had legitimised violence and urged the youth to take up arms to wage a war which the ageing Tamil leadership could not undertake. He was the first born child of the Vadukoddai Resolution that legitimised violence to achieve Eelam. Armed with the licence given to him by the Vadukoddai Resolution he went on a spree of killing until it came to a stop at Nandikadal.

Not surprisingly, the last shots of the war also were fired by Prabhakaran when his bodyguards targeted the Tamil civilians fleeing from his Pol Potist gulag into the welcoming arms of the Security Forces. Those last shots were fired to kill the Tamils and protect Prabhakaran who needed the Tamils to shield him from the advancing Security Forces. Prabhakaran’s last shots targeting his own people blasted the myth of the Tamils who believed that the people were behind their “Surya Devan”. The Thalaivar who offered the cyanide pill as the sacrificial symbol of his new religion was now shooting the Tamils for not swallowing the cyanide pills as a show of solidarity with his cause. Tamils fleeing from him was the last blow to his ego. He and the Tamil Diaspora couldn’t accept that the Tamils preferred the Security forces of “the enemy” to “the liberations forces” of the Tamil killer squads. It was a desperate time when the Tamils had no hero to turn to. They ran into the arms of the demonised Sinhala forces who gave them food, shelter, medicine and, above all, peace which their hero could not deliver.

In between the very first shot and the last shots Prabhakaran never ceased killing unarmed Tamil civilians. S. C. Chandrahasan, the son of the father of Tamil separatism, S. J. V. Chelvanayakam, and V. Anandasangaree, head of the Tamil United Liberation Front (TULF), are on record saying that Prabhakaran killed more Tamils than all the other forces put together. He began his political career by killing Tamils and also ended it by not only killing his own people who shielded him but also humiliating them by misleading them into a war that ended in total defeat.

The Tamils who were pushed into an inescapable corner by the mono-ethnic extremism of the Vadukoddai Resolution had no alternative but to go along with Prabhakaran. Political events cast upon him the burden of carrying the Vadukoddai Resolution to a conclusion. The Tamils were stuck with him though the cruelties of Prabhakaran left the Tamils in a political and moral vacuum. But Prabhakaran was their last hope to achieve what was promised in the Vadukoddai Resolution. The politics and morality of the Tamils were tied to Prabhakaran. Whatever he did was right and whatever that was done against him was wrong. And when they lost him they found themselves in no-man’s land.

The dominant image of Prabhakaran in Tamil politics point directly to the tragedy, and also the obscenity, facing Tamils : they do not have in their history an inspiring or moral leader to hero-worship other than Prabhakaran. Oddly enough, he is a hero to the Tamils not because he won anything for them. They gave everything they had to him and he failed to deliver. But he is a hero because there isn’t a single other leader who had led the Tamils into battle against a demonised “enemy” on the scale launched by Prabhakaran and held on for so long. He was the lever with which the Tamils were hoping to manipulate the international community. He was the bargaining chip and when he went even the crafty NGO bluestocking, Radhika Coomaraswamy, was emotionally disturbed, fearing that everything she had fought for was lost. She reacted aggressively castigating Dayan Jayatilleka for his speech at the UNHRC which overturned the anti-Sri Lankan resolution sponsored by the Europeans.

The Tamil elite was secretly glorying in Prabhakaran’s victories which they thought brought them some dignity at home and recognition in the international community. But it was tinsel glory. He was fighting a war which he could not win, despite his initial successes. No one had spilt so much Tamil blood for so long and achieved nothing. In the end, when he was on the run, he revealed his true colours : he was not fighting for the Tamils, he was fighting for his own survival using the Tamils as a shield to protect him and his family. His initial idealism had evaporated and the new realities told him that he had to fight for his survival which he equated with the survival of the Tamils. But the Tamils have proved that they could achieve better things by running away from him in search of better worlds than staying with him.

His unrelenting commitment to kill was his strength and weakness. Killing was to him what a “hit” was to a drug addict : he got a kick out of it and he could not survive without it. Adulation and hero-worship distorted his power to think, if he had any such powers at all. He expected the Tamils to fall at this feet, as their saviour, and follow him to the bitter end. It was when the Tamil refused to go along with him all the way that he fired his last shots at the Tamils deserting him. He was the kind of hero who demanded total obedience, particularly when it came to sacrificing their lives. His heroism depended on other Tamils sacrificing their lives for him. He expected to brain-wash other people’s children to die for him while keeping his own kids safely at home, or swimming in his pool in the heart of the dry zone. He dragged the Tamils along with him, at gun point, to keep them as a human shield to protect him. And when the Tamils abandoned him, and voted with their feet to live in a better world, he shot the fleeing Tamils. How great is this Tamil hero who reached the peak of his power by standing on a mountain of Tamil corpses?

However, the fact that he used the Tamils to glorify his own ends on the promise of delivering a goal which he could never achieve is not an issue that concerns his blind followers. Like the shaven-headed Neo-Nazis the cult followers are eager to overlook the failures of the most cruel and ruthless grave-digger, widow-maker and child-abuser produced by the Tamils to bury the Tamils in mass graves. In a perverse way the Tamils embrace his cult of death when they follow his bullet-brandishing flag, or commemorate his birthday. Unwittingly, they are thirsting for his cult of death. When they embrace Prabhakaran they deny life and all the goodness that life has to offer.

This signifies, firstly, the aridity and the hollowness of the history of Jaffna. They have yet to produce a man with dignity and humane values as their hero. Secondly, it points to the hidden layers of the pitiless fascist culture inherent in peninsular politics. Jaffna has been unhappy because it had no hero. It is also unhappy now because it’s hero is the biggest killer of Tamils. The Tamils who claim to have settled down in Sri Lanka even before the Sinhalese stepped in have nothing to show at the end of their journey other than Prabhakaran and his flag which, incidentally, was drawn by a street artist in Chennai. It was a cheap product both in costs and design. Prabhakaran is said to have paid the S. Indian artist a pittance. And the over-all design of the flag had come from Prabhakaran who was impressed with the MGM lion snarling from a ring. He substituted the Chola tiger for the Hollywood lion and ringed the beast’s head with thirty-three bullets against a background of two crossed guns fixed with bayonets.

Since the flag is the highest symbol of a community/nation, representing its values and culture, the LTTE flag should be taken as a reflection of the Tamil culture and the values coming from the depths of the Tamil mind contained in the cranium of of the greatest Tamil hero, Prabhakaran. In contextualising the flag, it can be argued that Prabhakaran and his flag reflect each other’s subhuman beastliness unerringly. It is a flag without a single redeeming feature. There isn’t a single symbol in it that represents humane values affirming its faith in peace, co-existence in a multi-cultural world and an inspiring / uplifting culture. No Tamil has so far rejected this flag as being repugnant to the Tamil culture. They seem to be eager to go along with it, waving it from London to Melbourne, and from Toronto to Timbuctoo.

When a community embraces the symbols of its unrelenting and ruthless persecutor, torturer and killer what does it say of its culture? Doesn’t the symbiotic relationship between the Tamils’ greatest hero and the community means that they both share the same values? Isn’t one the reflection of the other? Consequently, isn’t it logical that the pathological killer of Tamils should chose the Chola Tiger ringed by thirty-three bullets and two bayoneted guns to represent the Tamils and their culture? It can be argued that the symbols in Prabhakaran’s flag represent the Chola warrior cult. Well, if Prabhakaran is the representative of that cult does it mean that the mission of the warrior cult of the Cholas is to eliminate Tamils from the earth? Or that the Tamils have been put on earth to shield Prabhakaran and his family? Doesn’t the Tamil flag and the Tamil Thalaivar, when put together, expose the inherent evil characteristics of the bloody Tamil culture of Jaffna?

Prabhakaran’s rise, growth and death came out of the womb of Jaffna which was historically ruled by a fascist culture of varying shades. In broad terms, Jaffna was ruled by three sets of local rulers in their brief history, leaving aside the colonial masters. They were (1) the Sankili type of tyrant who marched down to Mannar in 1544 and massacred Catholics for swearing allegiance to the Portuguese kings instead of him; (2) the Vellahla subalterns to colonial masters who ruled Jaffna with a “caste”-iron fist and, (3) the worst of all, Prabhakaran, the ruthless killer of Tamil dissidents and his rivals, imitating Sankili’s political culture of killing all those who do not swear allegiance to him. All three aimed to rule the territory as “the sole representative of the Tamils” – a cult that resisted and eliminated, by force if necessary, all rivals. This cult had strong fascist strands which held Jaffna in thrall. In the hands of Prabhakaran the cult of the “sole representative of the Tamils” reached it ruthless extremity. He pursued it to the bitter end applying efficiently the Chinese axiom that there can’t be two tigers hunting in the same mountain.

It was after President Mahinda Rajapakse liberated the Tamils from the fascist grip of Prabhakaran that the Tamils found the opportunity to taste democratic freedoms as never before. They were given the freedom to elect their own representatives without bending into two before fascists to get nomination. They were given the right to vote without fear of their hands beings cut for doing so. Their fear of sending their children to school not knowing whether they would be abducted by Tamil Boko Harams was removed for good. They were able to receive food and other essentials from “the Sinhala government” without substantial quantities being being siphoned off to fatten the fascist rulers and their cadres. They can crack jokes against Mahinda Rajapakse and Ranil Wickrermesinghe, or even criticise them without the fear of being hung on the lamp posts of Jaffna. They can owe allegiance to V. Rudrakumaran, the fake Prime Minister in New York, who can’t eve issue a visa to go the toilet, without fear of being massacred by a latter-day Sankili.

Above all, the right of Tamils to run their region by elected Tamil representatives was realised for the first time in their history when President Mahinda Rajapakse held elections in the liberated Northern Province. The Tamil representatives of Northern Province made history when they became the first elected rulers of their own territory. History will record that it is the Sinhala forces that liberated Jaffna for democracy to flourish by dismantling the fascist rule that oppressed the Tamils from the time they established their settlement in the 12th century. And it must be emphasized that democracy is guaranteed in the NP Council only if the centre retains the power to maintain democratic institutions without the provinces being hijacked by future Prabhakarans.

Today a “Sinhala government”, as they are never tired of saying, has appointed a Tamil to lead the opposition. M. Sampanthan can hold his head high with dignity and be proud that a Tamil is officially leading the opposition to a “Sinhala government”. Could he have, as a Tamil, led the opposition to the Thalaiavir of his Tamil government in the Vanni? Could he even have swim in Prabhakaran’s swimming pool? What is the dignity and honour he had when he had to go bending in two to get nomination and votes from a podian like Prabhakaran simply because he wields a gun? Could V. Wigneswaran have given a judgment that went against his revered leader, if he was a judge in Prabhakaran’s kangaroo courts? So in what democratic space did the Tamils ever find their dignity, freedom, honour and respect?

President Maithripala Sirisena is in command of a force far greater than Prabhakaran ever had. But the Tamils have the freedom to oppose him without those guns being trained on them to make them obey his politics. The TULF leader Ananadasangaree once complained that when Mrs. Bandaranaike went to open the Jaffna University they exercised their right to protest, sitting in front of the University in Jaffna — and they did it without getting killed. But under the Tamil Thalaivar they couldn’t even step into Jaffna. That’s the difference between “the Sinhala governments” and the “Tamil government” of Jaffna.

Then again consider how much respect and dignity did the Tamils, who were denied their basic right to worship their God in the Hindu temples, have under the Vellahla casteist fascism? I was there at Maviddipuram Temple when the low-castes were waging their battle to gain entry into the temple run by a brahmin. I saw N. Shamugathasan, the leader of the Communist Party. But I never saw Sampanthan or any other Federal Party leader, including S. J. V. Chelvanayakam, standing up for the rights of the oppressed people of Jaffna. As stated by Bryan Pfaffenberger, who made a study of Jaffna caste system, the Federal Party “tip-toed” out of the issue. They were pussy-footing around the issue fearing that they would lose the vote of the Vellahlas who were in the majority. Having denied the Tamil people their basic right to walk in day time, or to get a drop of water from the high caste wells, for centuries under their sacred Hindu system, the Sampanthans and Wigneswarans have the gall to go round the world and proclaim, with feigned righteousness, that they have been denied their dignity, their respect, their culture by “the Sinhala governments”.

The Tamils have this tendency to live in a permanent state of catatonic denial. They bury their heads in the sand like the ostrich because the reality debunks their myths that feed their bogus fears whipped up by them to survive in peninsular politics. No one can survive in peninsular politics without raising the fears of the Sinhala bogey-man. They thrive in the political culture of hate. The Vadukoddai Resolution was filled with the politics of hate. It contained a caricature of history which demonised the Sinhala-Buddhists to lead Tamil politics to the extreme end of hate demanding a separate state. Filling their politics with hate was a necessity to demand a separate state.

Alfred Duriyappah was killed under the prevailing tense and hate-filled political climate of Jaffna. He had been demonised by the TUF leaders for being a “collaborator” with the Sinhalese. Fledgling militants like Prabhakaran – he was shivering when he shot because it was his first killing, says eye-witnesses – were brain-washed to kill the “enemy / traitors” of the Tamils. The Tamil political elite were on platforms crying for the blood of Tamils like Duraiyappah. The Vadukoddai Resolution had legitimised violence as means to their end. The disillusioned Tamil youth too were responsive to this hate culture. Jaffna was tinder dry with the unbearable heat of hate. It was ready to explode. Pin-pointing the responsibility for the death of Duraiyappah Prof. Rajan Hoole says: “If anyone, it is the TUF and Amirthalingam (its leader) who should bear the responsibility…”(p.18, The Arrogance of Power, Myths, Decadence and Murder, University Teachers for Human Rights (Jaffna), Rajan Hoole).

Though he posed as a non-violent Gandhian, Amirthalingam did not mind “the boys” killing someone here and robbing a bank there, said M. R. Nayana Swamy, Inside the Elusive Mind, Prabhakaran. “Amirthalingam appears to have considered the TULF and Prabhakaran’s LTTE as two sides of the same coin, one political and ideological and the other armed and military. As later years proved, Amirthalingam was too naive to think thus.” (p. 45 – Ibid).

But the Tamil leadership never took responsibility for the Tamil violence they unleashed in pursuit of their elusive Eelam. They blamed it on the Sinhala-Buddhists. The Vadukoddai Resolution is the ultimate expression of the hate politics of the Tamil leadership. They urged the Tamil youth to take up the guns. They did and the first move they made was to turn the guns on the Tamil leadership that passed the Resolution.

It was too late when the killer of Duraiyappah came back a decade or so later to get Amirthalingam. The karmic forces released by the TULF leader’s actions came chasing after him, like his shadow, and got him in the end. Only the Sinhala police force, demonised and vilified by Amirthalingam and his mates, was there to defend the Tamil leaders under attack by Prabhakaran’s assassins. But even that could not save Amirthalingam.

More of this in the next article.

      Yes. They have got number of War mongering Heroes. The first and formost murder [Edited out]. The assasination of SWRD by a Buddhist Monk 1n late 1950s is the dawn of that heroism. The followed with dragging pregnant Tamil Mothers from their residence to streets and burnt them in the day light and celebrated that heroism. The burning of Jaffna library was outstanding heroism. Even the murder of Rugby player is undoubtedly a heroism. What else?

        Old Dutta Gamini was not Sinhalese. He lived around 2300 years ago, at that time there was no Sinhalese language or people called Sinhalese. In the south central and western parts of the island, the native Tamils ( Nagas) and other tribes had been converted from their ancient Saivite religion,to their new religion Buddhism and the population was largely still speaking a form of Tamil that later evolved to Sinhalese with the mixture of Pali and Sanskrit.Etymological clues: “The Vedda dialect as probably did the old Sinhala approaches far closer to Tamil than modern Sinhala in its pronunciation”. (Hugh Neville. p.88.) The Vedda dialect, their spoken language is identical with Elu which was the spoken language of ancient Sri Lanka, which is semi-Tamil; as to the grammatical structure it is essentially Dravidian and simple (Emaneau, M.B 1961).
        Dutugemuni or Dutta Gamini was Buddhist Tamil Naga. The Nagas were Tamil or Tamil speaking Dravidians. His mother came from a famous Buddhist Naga family around what is modern day Kelaniya and his father King Kakkai Vanna Theesan ( pure Tamil for the black king or the king the colour of the crow) must have been a Hindu Naga. This is why he forbade his son to fight against the Tamil Hindu king Ellalan and the ruling Tamil Hindu establishment that was ruling Anuradhapura. This was had nothing to with Sinhalese or Tamils, as there were no such thing called Sinhalese language or Sinhalese people existing at that time. It was a war between the old Tamil(Naga) Hindu establishment that ruled the island, personified by king Ellalan and the newly converted Tamil Naga Buddhists9 led by Prince Dutta Gamini) who wanted to assert their supremacy. That is all. Later the descendants of these ancient Tamil ( Naga) Buddhists evolved into the original Sinhalese( I say original Sinhalese, as most of the so called modern day Sinhalese are largely descended from recently migrated largely low castes Indian Tamils). This is the reason, that the indigenous Eelam Tamils and the original Sinhalese( largely from the Kandyan areas) share a very high proportion of their DNA.
        Later the Mahavamsa and the Sinhalese racists converted this story into a Sinhalese Tamil war. How can it be a Sinhalese Tamil war when there no Sinhalese or a Sinhalese language at that time?

            The Hindu

            December 27, 2015

            India, Pak, Bangladesh will reunite: Madhav

            Ram Madhav, BJP general secretary on loan from the RSS, has said that the Sangh believes that India, Pakistan and Bangladesh will one day reunite again not by war but through “popular goodwill”, comments that were made public on the night Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a surprise stopover in Lahore for a meeting with Nawaz Sharif.

            “The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) still believes that one day these parts, which have for historical reasons separated only 60 years ago, will again, through popular goodwill, come together and Akhand Bharat will be created,” he told Al Jazeera.

            The BJP general secretary said, “As an RSS member, I also hold on to that view.”

            He, however, clarified, saying, “That does not mean we wage war on any country… we annex any country. Without war, through popular consent, it can happen.”

            The programme containing Mr. Madhav’s comments was apparently recorded in London before the Prime Minister’s surprise visit to Pakistan on Christmas day when he met Mr. Sharif and discussed ways of improving ties between the two countries. The programme was aired late Friday.

            Mr. Madhav, an RSS pracharak himself, said, India is “a land where a particular way of life, a particular culture or civilisation, is practised”.

            “We call it Hindu — do you have any objection? India has one culture. We are one culture, one people, one nation,” he told the channel.

            Mr. Madhav said the RSS ideology is for the supremacy of India and the organisation is neither “fascist” nor “aggressive”.

            On the controversy over returning of awards by writers and intellectuals, he said, a small number of people do not represent the entire country’s views and there were a very large number of intellectuals who did not support this award.

            Mr. Madhav said they were doing it “to defame the government and in turn to defame the image of India” and termed as “wrong” their method of protest. — PTI

      What your ZEROES did –
      “Despite international pressure on the Sri Lankan government however, the TNA was excluded from a parliamentary development meeting on the relief effort.

      Condemning the government actions, the TNA leader, R Sampanthan, writing to the Sri Lankan government, said,

      “The Tamil-speaking people of the North East have been denied the opportunity of having their views presented at these sessions. Your conduct is however consistent with other actions of the Sri Lankan State in the recent Post Tsunami phase, when several world leaders despite their anxiety to do so, were denied the opportunity to visit the affected areas in some parts of the North-East, and gain first hand knowledge of the real situation.”

      Incredulously, whilst negotiations on aid distribution to the North-East continued, an economic embargo was placed on the Batticaloa and Vaharai regions. “

      The literary geniuses Thotawatte Rahula, Sangaraja himi, Alagiyawanna Mukaveti and many unknown authors of our ancient literary works.\

      The unknown builders of our ancient cities are our heroes.

      Martin Wickramasinghe the literary genius, our freedom fighters are our heros..

        Sach,

        Can you please prove Dutugamunu, Vijayabahu, Prakaramabahu 1, Parakramabahu 11, Parakramabahu 6 are Sinhalese kings.

        I can prove with evidence from the Mahavamsa & other inscriptions that King Parakramabahu, the builder of the Parakrama samudraya had more Tamil blood running in his veins than Sinhala. Can you prove that he was a Sinhalese?

        Your freedom fighters are your heros, but you NEVER had any freedom fighters, the British gave independence on a platter after the Indians spilt their sweat, blood and tears.

          Yes they were sinhalese…first go and find a good refutation to the FACTS that all north and east had sinhala names in dutch maps…can you prove that tamil as an ethnicity even existed during parakramabahu’s period?

            1

            sach,

            As expected, you cannot prove anything what you say.

            Regarding King PARAKRAMABHU, you need not go very far, just refer Culavamsa for the kings of Polonnaruwa period (available in google).

            King Vijaya Bahu married a princess from Kalinga Royal Family as his second Mahesi, and from her he had a son named Vikrama Bahu and a daughter named Ratnavali. Vijaya Bahu’s sister, Mitta, was given in marriage to a Tamil Pandyan Prince, who had three sons. The eldest of whom named Manabharana, became the husband of King Vijaya Bahu’s daughter Ratnavali. Their son was Parakrama Bahu I (1140-1173 AD), Grandson of Vijaya Bahu I, Prince of Royal Blood, Pandyan descent, son of Manabharana and Vijaya Bahu’s sister Mitta whose husband was a Tamil Pandyan prince.

            Parakrama Bahu is a grandson of a Pandyan prince. What is the big connection between the Sinhalese and the King Parakramabahu? Tamils have more connection to Parakramabahu than the Sinhalese, why should we call him as a Sinhala King? He has only Pandyan and Kalinga connection.

            The pillar of stone inscription in Tamil is at the entrance that leads to the Palace of King Parakramabahu the great. King Parakrambahu the great built a statue to honor the Tamil sage Agaththiyar (who brought the Tamil language) to commemorate his Tamil roots, but the foolish Sinhalese are calling the sage Agathiyar`s statue as Parakrmabahu`s statue. The statue in Polonnaruwa traditionally held to be of Parākramabāhu the Great is actually the statue of sage Agaththiyar.

            King Parakramabahu was the patron of numerous Hindu Temples including Jaffna Nallur Murukan Temple and Rameswaram Sivan Temple, and his Tamil inscriptions are still in Rameswaram Temple. The Tamil Saivites of Jaffna are still invoking his name in the Nallur Temple before the temple procession of Lord Murukan.

            Similarly, all other BAHUs are having Tamil Pandyan connections or rather they are all from Pandyan descend.

            Regarding sinhala names in dutch maps, the Tamil scholars have proved that all of them are meaningful Tamil names. The problem is 40% of the Sinhala Vocabulary is of Tamil origin. That is another subject which can be taken up for debate if you are interested.

              To make things easy, I have done the google search for you. Please refer Chulavamsa chapter IV, ‘The Polonnaruwa Kings’ (1070-1215)

              As I said earlier, Tamil/South Indian blood was running in King Parakramabahu’s veins and you people call him a Sinhala king.

            “H. A. J. Hulugalle, in his booklet, Information for Tourists, 1947? says in the first paragraph on page one: The Sinhalese are a mixed race, their language has been vastly enriched with words from the Tamil vocabulary. “

            Sach,

            “I have culled out all the above words, together with their definitions, from the Ancient Irrigation Works, by R.L.Brohier. At least they reveal one fact, viz, that they are ultimately Tamil derivatives. My presumption, therefore, is that those, who built tanks and constructed large irrigation works in the past, possessed all the knowledge necessary for the purpose and were Tamil-speaking people ” http://www.sangam.org/2011/08/Aryan_Theory.php?uid=4446

            Terms Used in Irrigation

            My dear Son,

            From place names let me proceed to examine other matters, more particularly the terms used in irrigation. An attempt has been made in some quarters to bolster up the theory that the science of irrigation was unknown to the inhabitants of Ceylon in pre-Vijayan times and that the science itself was an ‘Aryan’ product and brought to Ceylon by the Aryans. But if you examine the meaning and derivations of most of the terms associated with the irrigation works of the island, I doubt whether this theory could be maintained.

            First of all look at the following list of words: Anai, Kaddu, Anaikaddu, Marichukaddu,

            Kadavai, Karai, Munai, Thekkam, Kulama. These are all clearly Tamil words.

            •Anai, is support.
            •Kaddu, is a construction.
            •Anaikaddu, is a supporting embankment (The English word ‘anicut’ is this simple Tamil word.)
            •Marichukaddu, is a dam thrown across a river and is slightly different from anaikaddu, which is presumably on a side of a river or constructed to strengthen an existing dam. The Tamil verb ‘mari’ means to prevent or hinder, its past participle is ‘mariththu’, colloquially ‘marichu’. Anai is also found as a suffix at the end of several words. E.g: Habarana.
            •Kadavai, is a word or a place where you cross over from one side to the other, as in Thammankadavai or Iluppaikkadavai. This word is derived from the Tamil verb ‘kada’ – to cross.
            •Karai, is the edge of a tank or river or canal and is found in Elahera (Eelakarai) or Kaddukara (Kaddukarai).
            •Munai or Mune, as the Sinhalese call it is a point, the end or beginning of anything as in Hattamune.
            •Thekkam, is a place where a large quantity of water is allowed to accumulate, something in the nature of a reservoir; literally it means being full or rising to the brim.
            •Kulam, or Kulama as the Sinhalese call it, means a tank or pond or lake.

            Now look at a further list of words that may superficially appear to be non-Tamil words;

            Ela, yodiela, kalingula, potawa, potawana, wakkada, bema, amuna, biskotuwa, sorowa.

            •Ela is the Tamil, Ali, which means a ridge or mound of earth dividing fields, or an aritificial embankment for confining water. The word Ela also means a ridge along which water flows.
            •Yodi-Ela, is a canal of higher elevation which serves as a feeder to a reservoir. It corresponds to the Tamil ‘Uyantha Ali’ (high).
            •Kalingula, is a contrivance built into the spill for raising the spill level of a tank. In Tamil, Kalingul, is the name for a sluice.
            •Potawa, is collection of water from a bank of an ela, retained by a bund for use after it has passed over the upper fields. The Tamil paravai, refers to a flat expanse of water.
            •Pitawana, is a channel by which surplus water is discharged from a tank. The meaning can be rendered by the Tamil words ‘piravali’, i becoming n, pira meaning outside and vali (verb), meaning overflow and vazhi (noun), a way.
            •Wakkada, is gap or cut made in the bund for letting water into the fields. This closely resembles the Tamil word vaikkal, a water-course.
            •Bemma, is a bund or earthen dam closing the outlet of the valley in which the water of a tank is retained. This is similar to the Tamil word, varambu, with the elision of the consonant r.
            •Amuna, is a temporary dam for stopping or diverting the water streams for purposes of irrigation. This may mean simply man, or colloquially mannu, earth heaped across a stream.
            •Biskotuwa, is a square shaft or well sunk through the bund of a tank to reach the bottom of a sluice. Though the sluice could be reached from the outside the construction of a Biskotuwa is intended to admit light to the sluice and also as an aid to put a supplementary gate to the sluice whenever the sluice gate needs repair. A Biskotuwa in Tamil would mean Pulai Kudaivu. Pulai, means a hollow tube or a sally port or a secret way and Kudaivu, is scooping out, as a well. (The consonant l, in Tamil sounds zh.
            •Sorowa, or Horowwa as it is sometimes spelt, is the sluice of a tank under an embankment to conduct the water to the channels. This is the Tamil ‘Sorivai’, an opening through which water is made to flow out; sorithal, is pouring forth or streaming forth or flowing out, and vay, is a mouth or an opening.

          LOL…..the sinhalese know their freedom fighters very well…from anagarika dharmapala to DS senanayaka worked for our freedom…the maximum tamils did was to watch out for low caste tamils who enter their kovils….and worshipping sudda’s back side not to give voting for low caste people..

          Are you from a low caste who struggled to enter a kovil..i have read how high caste tamils used to give low caste slave families as dowry in marriages..such a pathetic state of affairs..were you a result of one like that?

          • 2
            1

            sach,

            Neither D. S. Senanayaka and the Congress nor Anagarika Dharmapala (actual name Don David Hewavitarne), Keppitipola, Puran Appu, Gongalegoda Banda, and numerous Bhikkus and lay people fought for the independence? The Sri Lankans did not fight with British as a nation would fight against a colonial power for independence. Puran Appu and/or Gongalegoda Banda did not fight a national struggle (a brief uprising limited for few days, as a direct response to the introduction of new tax by the then Governor Torrington), Keppetipola fought for personal reasons and so were the others.

            Unlike the Indians (Mahatma Gandhi, Jawalhal Nehru, Mohd Ali Ginna, Subash Chandra Bose, and others) who suffered for their Independence, the Sinhalese whom Anagarika Dhammapala termed as ‘Kalu Suddho’ collaborated with the British, who gave us Independence on a platter (without shedding a single drop of tears, sweat or blood) and made them leaders to rule the entire country.

            The Indian leaders Mohandas Gandhi along with Jawaharlal Nehru and Mohamad Ali Jinna fought for it peacefully, Subash Chandra Bose fought for it violently, and Sri Lanka got it free along with the Indians without spilling any blood, sweat or tears.

            Monarawila Keppetipola in 1818, Puran Appu in 1848, Mayadunne, Gongalegoda Banda, Kudapola Rahula thero, Wariyapola Sumangala and a few others were rebels who fought at different periods (long before independence) for different issues/reasons, it had nothing to do with the Independence. They were easily crushed and were executed very long before Sri Lanka obtained independence.

            Did anybody fight and succeed in sending the Brits out of the country?

            None of their struggle contributed to the Independence of Sri Lanka, it was granted in 1948, only after the British were forced to leave the region due to Gandhi’s struggle in India. When the British gave independence to India, they found that it is time to leave this region and it is pointless keeping a tiny country like Sri Lanka. In 1948, we got it free on a platter, thanks to Gandhi and the Indians. Go and listen to Nanda Malini’s song ‘Nidahas baila’, it is very well composed with the facts.

            Very similar to some of the Sinhala rebellion against the British rule even the Tamils have rebelled. Pandara Vanniyan (Kulasegaram Vairamuthu Pandaravanniyan) was known as one of last native Tamil chiefs to challenge British rule.

            We should not forget the service rendered by Sir Ponnampalam Ramanathan at that time and the Sinhalese including Anagarika Dharmapala called him a hero.

    On December 26th, 2004, over 35,000 people perished during the catastrophic tsunami that hit the coasts of the North-East and South of the island of Sri Lanka.

    The United Nation High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) said five days after the disaster that almost two thirds of those killed were in the Tamil homeland of the North-East.

    It will be interesting to note the role played Chandrika Kumaratunga and Rajapaksa, one was president and the other prime minister, during the tsunami, when it came to dealing with the Tamils. Both blocked internationally sponsored aid from reaching NE. Medical aid sent by Tamil Diaspora from Europe was held up in Colombo airport, until it expired. The SL government demanded tax on food supplies and clothes sent by Tamils overseas.

      anpu,

      ” Both blocked internationally sponsored aid from reaching NE. Medical aid sent by Tamil Diaspora from Europe was held up in Colombo airport, until it expired. The SL government demanded tax on food supplies and clothes sent by Tamils overseas.”

      This is a very serious charge, enpu. Was it all of it or some of it?

      If it was some of it, was whatever happened just cock up or conspiracy as you claim?

      Is there any evidence you are able to support this with? If you have, as I think you ought to when making a charge of this gravity, you must give at least the references.

    You can attack Jaffna VP Tamils Hindus everybody but you will never be accepted as a Sinhalese. This trick doesn’t work nowadays. Jaffna may not have leaders but you must remember Sinhalese are not fools to accept you as one of them just because you attack the Tamils. Try some other trick. Good Luck. Time is running out though.
    Once and for all the Sinhalese should tell him what he should do to be accepted as a Sinhalese.

    RE: Jaffna – An Arid Land Without Heroes

    “Tamil Theology Upgraded Prabhakaran & Downgraded Jesus: Part III”

    What did Jesus do for Tamils? Nothing. The Priests claimed that the Tamils had sins, and to get rid of the sins, they had to embrace Catholicism or Christianity, to be free from sin in afterlife. Do you know of any Tamils who was freed of sins afterlife as claimed? Any supporting data?

    However, the priests did give them a good education, and there was less caste discrimination, that was part of Hinduism.

    On the Other hand what did Maha Mooyal Maha Veeran Vwlupillai Prabakaran give the Tamils? The Satan, the Devil, the Lucifer, as described below. Who made VP to be Satan, the Devil, the Lucifer? The Sinhala “Buddhists”, and their “leaders” who are the Agents of Mara, who opposed Buddha.

    “The sound of the first shot continues to echo even today because it was also the first shot fired by Velupillai Prabhakaran. He had just turned 21 then. His first shot removed any inhibitions he had about killing human beings. From then onwards his career rose to dizzy heights not only because of his own ability to kill but also because of his ability to get others to kill on his behalf. As his confidence in killing grew he aspired to be his celluloid hero Clint Eastwood – the Hollywood idol who fixed everything with his gun. He turned his killing others and others dying for him into a cult. Jaffna took to the cult of death like duck to water and it was never the same again.”

    HLD, you are only analysing the tree top and not its roots.In any case there is no point in doing either, because history shall be history and not a comma can be changed. Simply put, there were horrible mistakes, if we could call them mistakes, by all those so called leaders of both communities, who were in a sense prisoners of history ; who were inebriated by a “We are right , You are wrong” mind set.

    However a brand new beginning ,without been subjected to the horrible past , is always possible, provided all concerned approach it sincerely and with dedication. If the matter is approached with political advantage in mind , then surely there is every danger in history repeating itself. Such an attitude would only provide grist for the mills of people like HLD of the future, whose likes abound in both communities.

      That brand new beginning you wish for could have been a reality if the Tamil political leadership and the international backers avoided the path of “accountability” but insisted only on “truth” in order to move towards reconciliation. As for me it is as clear as daylight that “accountability” imposed on one side of a long brutal war is the very opposte of reconciliation of the paties involved. An all encompassing attitude of forgiveness would have uncovered the whole truth. Isn’t the “truth” the ONLY treasure we can leave for posterity? What do you gain by punishing a few after an himalian effort if that process entails the wrath of many,a process that will bury the truth for eternity.

      The Tamil political leadership, after the war, behaved like a mother in an accident scene where her children lying in pools of blood, some dying, caling police rather than the ambulance. To this day all I see is she spending all her time an energy flying in and out of police headquarters in Geneva rather than atending to her recuperating children.

      My heart sank the day Wingeswaran declared that Prabakaran is a hero, which even Sampanthan had refrained from in his remorseful wisdom.

            Sach,

            Sinhala speaking Demala is a Sinhala Buddhist of Tamil Origin.

            Between 14th to 17th centuries AD, tens of thousands of Dalit (untouchables) from South India were settled in the Sinhala speaking Southern and Western provinces as menial laborers/coolies (for growing/peeling cinnamon, fishing/pearl diving, coconut planting/plucking and toddy tapping). These South Indian Dalit turned to Buddhism and eventually got naturalized (Sinhalized). Please read Professor K.M. de Silva’s book `A History of Sri Lanka`, it refers to the migration of the Karawe, Salagama, and Durawe castes from Southern India to Southern Sri Lanka between the 14th and 17th centuries AD.

            Can you please tell us from which TN tribal area (Dalit) your ancestors came to SL and got converted into Sinhala-Buddhists?

    In 2010, late in the September, after the UN annual meeting, there was an unusual bustle in the New York’s fanciful hotel, Astoria Waldorf. Waiters and servers were running around here and there and rehearsing of a big party supposed to be starting in few hours. Expensive wine and Whiskey bottle were opened, placed on the table of the Empire room, which is a massive reception hall can carry 300 guests. Though it is not really unusual for that hotel, but it is not normal either other than on very special occasions, but not for an annual UN meeting. The strange thing there was is it was being organized by a country it is one of the poorest nation in the world. The time arrived for the party. Everything was ready in place other than tow things for that Sinhala Party. One is Diplomatic Aappa, and the diplomats supposed to attend to eat it.

    It was the result of never ending cheating of Sinhala underhand techniques which used 32 Nations to win the war and showed them blue sky right after winning the war. That was a subtle lesson for the Old King of what the possibility of the UN electric Chair being delivered to him. The Sinhala diplomats, the Nude shop and naked dance club owners of New York ate and drank the high class menu items that were delivered with the diplomats in mind. Old King refused to talk to PM Manmohan Singh during visit to the UN sitting. But the incident was an eye opener for both, India and Sri Lankawe. India started to press Lankawe to conduct an election for NPC, which the Old King had as his last thing to do. Election was conducted in late 2013. There was Massive intimidation of voters and Tamil Candidates, vote wriggling with campaign frauds, including printing a fake Uthan newspaper by the Government’s rapist army. To disperse the Tamils votes further utilizing the already abused 90,000 widows, government had forcefully lured a widows party too in the election. The Candidates of party of the King who has been ploughing the bodies of the Tamil victims for his carpet bombing earth movers ate the earth in the election. Now he is rejected by Sinhala Buddhist too and left in a vacuum. This cardboard hero last hope is surrendering China.

    “Andu Viddan Kondaladi”(The fox who ate the Indian Laburnum fruit, after suffering a long diarrhea sworn and left the tree), A comical saying in Tamils. The fox speaking out of its painful experience of under evaluating the decision it took. Our Hybrid patriotist Mahindapala is feeling the pain of teasing Izeth Hussain and, now looking out for easy targets to play fool and claims a hero-ship out of it.

    Lankawe’s Old King is dethroned by Sec.Kerry. A shameful occasion took place on the morning of the Jan. 8th, 2015. Ranil, who has been claiming that the war victory was of his one because he was the one refused to sign ICC accord and enabled the barbarian soldiers to invade the North and do war crime, had to go to the Temple Tree house to give a promise to save the Old king. America won the war. America removed the Old King. But it is the Old King who committed war crime and, now, his fate needs to be saved by Ranil. Mahindapala’s hero, the Old King, on the early Morning of 8th, fell down on the legs of his enemy, Ranil, and begged mercy and to protection for him. Ranil gave that promise. Now Ranil is sabotaging the UNHRC inquiry with Aappa diplomacy to keep up the promise.

    Ranil’s biggest nightmare is China’s Port City Project. Under the Port City deal, Dharmapala, the Old King of Lankawe, surrendered the land to the computer hacking of China. Detangling of Heavily tangled dealings with China for commissions of modern Dharmapala is not possible. Further China’s ships kept coming through the computer keyboard and attacking the Lankawe. Dharmapala did not have any other ways but to sign off the land to China. Though knowing this clearly ahead of the General Election, Ranil still said that he will just dismantle the new Chinese spy center that is about to be built on Gall face Green. To deal with this problem, China has called Old King to visit to China in January 2016.

    The old King is hanging on ropes upside down like an orangutan by the fear of pending UN electric Chair. Ranil is getting weaker in protecting Joshita on Thajudeen case. Muslims are showing very high aggressiveness to having the Old Royals prosecuted for this murder. The coward does not have courage, if he is a hero, to go and face UNHRC investigation. His, this behavior has made Sinhala Intellectual politicians to laugh at him calling “Cardboard Hero”. The cardboard hero, who is now completely rejected by Sinhalese mass for his greed, corruption, sexual violence, autocracy, fraud, bribe, false premise, inability attend the country problems and drug connections, left in vacuum. He is starting to fear now Ranil’s ability to protect him. This desperate situation of Mahindapala’s Hero is a super-duper opportunity for China. So, China is eyeing this opportunity to using further this coward.

    That is why Mahindapala’s cover up is so important.

    Australia especially Melbourne is full of Sinhalese extremists and Sinhalese extremists groups, that spread a lot of lies misinformation and hatred against the island’s Tamils. This author is one of them. Unfortunately many of them come from the so called rich Sinhalese elite, both Buddhist and Christian, who have come here for the good life and will never return other than for an occasional holidays. Most of the Tamils were forced to flee the island,and until recently were never even able to return even on a holiday to see their relatives or the homes and villages and towns they were forced to abandon, therefore you can understand their bitterness. However these Sinhalese have only migrated here for the good life. Many of them came here pretending to be Tamils(like the once recently Tamil Negombo, Chilaw, Puttalam Sinhalese) or part Tamils and claimed refuge. No one forced them to leave their Sinhala Buddhist genocidal paradise. However like this author, most of them have brought their Tamil hating venom and genocidal hatred for the Tamils here and are spreading this poison from the safely of Australia back home. They will never return to their genocidal paradise ( other than regular short cheap luxury holidays)they can but will never, but from the safety and luxury of the west will spread hatred to the island with all this crap article. He has published this article on the extremist Sinhalese site called the Lankaweb. Just read the comments there it is a treat. Funny from the names of most of its bloggers and commentators/contributors, most of them are from these recently migrated low caste Sinhalised Indian Tamil imports. At least the Tamil diaspora are fighting for just Tamil rights and to highlight the genocide and war crimes that was committed on their people. None of them advocate hatred ethnic cleansing or genocide of the island’s Sinhalese but these people are seated in the comfort and luxury of the west, with no intention of returning and are advocating just this

    There are two major pathways to be in the discussions of people, one being very popular and the other being very unpopular. MahindaDASA obviously has no shot at the former, so he picked the latter to be a sh*t stirrer.

    The very guy who is talking about the fascist Tamil leadership may tell us the name of Sinhala leaders outside Govigama. Premadasa was an exception, but he was pushed into election because Lalith and Gamini knew they/UNP had no chance to win that election. Two other potential non-Govigama leaders, Wijeweera and Fonseka were crushed by the Govigama. How many non-Govigama Mahanayakes, even those in Sangha leadership, could anyone name?

    “Tamil leadership never took responsibility for the Tamil violence they unleashed in pursuit of their elusive Eelam” says the idiot. But, how many Sinhala leaders took responsibility for the ethnic violence against Tamils by the Sinhala people (not by an armed movement) with open support of the government, police and the armed forces?

    Shame on you MahindaDASA. If you have any shame, you would never write again!!!

    @HLD Modapala, Jaffna an arid land? That is because your scoundrel cousins in racist governments of SL kept it that way. When the Mahaweli project was instituted, the water was sent south only. We have always had a government which has acted racist and selfishly. Kept prosperity only for the southern masses and not for the northerners. Also Mr. Duraiyapah was shot by a scoundrel who is still living in the UK by the name Kandeepan (Amirthalingam’s son) not VP. VP was a child when this sad assassination of a great human took place. So get your facts right before you call yourself a journo.

    Mr. Mahindapala – the title of your article is very revealing. It highlights your racism and antipathy against people from Jaffna in particular and Tamils in general.

    While a reasonable debate can be had about the virtues of liberation fights, to call a whole peninsula arid and a whole group of people lacking heroes is farcical.

    Please do not proclaim to represent us Sinhalese. You may be one, but I do not agree with your assessment, and wish there were fewer and fewer of people holding your ideas among the Sinhalese. Then we might one day have peace on our beautiful island.

          Hey low life Jim Shitty, it is better to be a Christian than a racist Buddhist. At least I believe in a real faith. By the way why do you have the name Jim. Jim came from Jimmy and Jimmy came from James a follower of Jesus Christ. Hahaha……….you did not see that coming did you?

      This HLD [Edited out] fellow continues to write the same old crap that he had been writing all this time. He writes rubbish and then repeats the same rubbish that he dumped some time ago in some racist forums. Those racist forums (like Lankaweb, read and commented by only a handful of racists) are the best places for him to dump his rubbish and get an applause rather than a moderate public forum like CT read by many people around the world. Here in CT, only some lunatics, mentally retarded and a few racist buffoons will read his crap and appreciate.

    According to DM news there is going to be addition to Mahavamsa. This addition covers the period of 1979 to 2010 ( JR to MR ).
    I’m sure HLDM , Gnanasara, DJ and the likes who supported state terror will be mentioned as theoreticians who promoted their ideas and added their versions that the country belongs to only one race and their religion.

    Who killed Lalith Athulathmudali? HLD Mahindapala who was then staying on the 8th floor of the NHDA Secretariat along with his Batticaloa wife][Thanks to Sirisena Cooray or is it Carisena Siray] during this period should enlighten us rather than DIVERTING ATTENTION towards the LTTE.!

    Let us take the title that this lumpen racist has given at face value: Jaffna is arid and has no heroes. Why, then, is this monkey so obsessed with Jaffna, spending countless hours writing article after article about Jaffna Tamils? Does the fact that he has had no marketable skills, and faced with the need to make a living in Australia, all he can do is spew racist hatred on media catering to Sinhalese racists, have anything to do with it?

    “It is a Raw question.”

    Isn’t it a national security question given that Lalith Athulathmudali served as Deputy Minister of Defence and Minister of National Security?

    It was one of Mexican stand off.
