Remembering Malati: Tamil Women Freedom Fighters – The Epitome Of Unparalleled Courage & Chivalry

By Usha S Sri-Skanda Rajah –

Usha S Sri-Skanda-Rajah

Yesterday was a solemn day. It was a day that ought to inspire all Tamil women and men – to take the ideals of our freedom fighters and continue the struggle for the emancipation and restoration of Tamil Eelam. We have to win back Tamil Eelamfor them who sacrificed everything for this sacred cause.

Yesterday, 10th October, we commemorated the 31st anniversary of the first woman martyr 2nd Lt Malati. It is in Malati’s honour and the many women martyrs after her, that the 10th of October was proclaimed Tamileela Pengal Eluchchi Naal – தமிழீழ பெண்கள் எழுச்சி நாள்– Tamil Eelam Women’s Day of Awakening – the awakening of and the rising up of Tamil women against not only tyranny but all forms of discrimination and oppression directed at women:

The statement that followed the proclamation speaks volumes: and I quote: “The people should remember the contributions of 2nd Lt. Malati and recognize the fundamental changes the Tamil liberation struggle has created in Tamil society in regard to the equality of women… The struggle has freed people from the shackles of superstitious customs, infused new blood and taken the society in new directions… “Liberation does not mean just freedom from foreign domination and tyranny, but also freedom from religious and gender discrimination and oppression of women.”

End quote. 

Tamil Women Freedom Fighters were far ahead of their time!

2nd Lt Malati was the first woman freedom fighter who gave her life for at the age of 20 on the 10th October 1987 in Kopay, Jaffna in a confrontation with the IPKF. She was not only the first woman but also the first to die defending the Tamil homeland – the Thamil Munn (Tamil Soil) against an Indian army that turned against us. 

Adele Balasingham in her “Women Fighters of Liberation Tigers” … writes

And I quote:

“The Indo- LTTE war broke out on the 10th October1987. On the very first day of the war, the LTTE women’s unit confronted the Indian troops at the strategic junction of Kopay, a village 5 kilometers from the Jaffna city. As a convoy of Indian troops advanced along the Navatkuli-Kopay Road the LTTE women fighters encamped at Kopay were prepared to confront a powerful force. 

The women fighters were near the Kopay junction in defensive positions when a convoy of Indian troops arrived in the black of night. Hundreds of troops jumped out of their vehicles and started to advance towards the women fighter’s positions. Heavy fighting broke out. Our women cadres fought hard, putting up fierce resistance against a formidable contingent with superior firepower. In that clash Malati died. Malati was the first women fighter to die in battle. Janani, a veteran of many battles, takes up the story of Malati’s death. 

“We were in our bunkers firing at the army. Hundreds of Indian troops had jumped out of their vehicles and were firing as they moved towards us. Motor shells were exploding everywhere. We knew the army was advancing quickly. Malati was shot in both legs. She couldn’t move and she was bleeding profusely. Realising that she was mortally wounded, she swallowed cyanide. A decision had been made to withdraw because we were heavily out-numbered. Myself and another girl went over to carry Malati. Malati refused to come with us. She begged us to leave her and asked us to withdraw. Nevertheless, we lifted Malati and carried her and when we arrived at a safe place she was dead.”

End quote.

Since then there have been countless Malatis who have given their lives for the cause of freedom, some who survived but suffer the scars of war – those women, who stood shoulder to shoulder with the men, second to no one and showed unbelievable and unparalleled courage and chivalry this world has ever witnessed. 

They are icons, their names will be engraved in gold in our history, they dared to go where others have feared and faltered and we salute them. 

Only way we can repay them, in a small way, is to carry the mantle – but also to help former women freedom fighters and wives, daughters and parents of freedom fighters – and also former men freedom fighters, many of whom still suffer the traumas of war, to rebuild their lives and stand on their feet– including families of those disappeared by the government of Sri Lanka and its agents – also to advocate to free those languishing in jails without charge. And although we the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam are essentially a political formation to win the restoration of an independent and sovereign state of Tamil Eelam – as individuals – each one of us, can come forward to be responsible for improving the lives of at least one of them.

Today 10th October, the year two thousand and eighteen, I speak for many Tamil women, that we will live by the solemn oath we’ve taken in our own minds, that we will work to ensure that Tamil destiny will be in Tamil hands, that we will reinforce the promise we made to ourselves to vindicate the sacrifice of our women freedom fighters and men, engage, educate, persuade and convince the international community towards conducting a referendum, as we continue the struggle for justice and freedom, that we will not rest and do whatever it takes, even if we are no more, to bring the younger generation of Tamils to take over the struggle, until it is won.

This is our promise to our women and men freedom fighters.

Ithu Sathyam!

    You say ‘Freedom Fighter’ we say ‘Terrorist” and whatever race, gender or creed they represent should not be celebrated but condemned. It is sad that so many especially the young, paid the price for being misled and disillusioned by megalomaniacs like Prabakaran, Hitler and our very own Wijeweera, MR and GR, who used lies, deceit and terror tactics of persuasion. What one should “remember” is the loss of the innocent lives as a result of selfish agendas of the politicians of our land that continue to separate us on the lines of race and religion. The Sri Lankan civil society must rise up and stand as one against the Political and Religious mafia that sows the seeds of dissent for personal gain. To start with the laws must recognise us as Sri Lankans and need for one to be identified as a Sinhalese (Buddhist/Christian), Tamil, Muslim, etc must be made unlawful.

      Nice one Richard. Perhaps the privileged lot i.e. from the majority, which may include you and so called sri lanka civil society, can choose to be ‘race’ blind but for a people marginalized and subjected to various forms of violence on the basis of their race cannot choose to be ‘race’ blind. It is this privileged lot who is disillusioned.

      Agree word by word Richard. This is why the NPC should conduct “Tamil crime against Tamils” since Independence will reveal all you have said and bring justice to Innocent tamils and all other Sri Lankans who died in the hands of their children, Tamil separatist politics (complementing the same from the South) that has undermined the entire nationhood, mislead and misused the young generation for their agendas and killed/threatened/bullied the entire Tamil poplulation objected to their proposed solutions “some” of which were all their creations in the first place, through this obtained a mandate in 1977 elections we know the 1977 and 1983 riots thereafter none of these folks took equal responsibility for etc. Then allowed the foreign countries to train their children and sacrifice their life for an activity never part of any solution nor sustainable nation building activity for a post colonial country trying find solutions to impossible scenarios presented to them.
      The above misery was followed by the same actions by the youth down south in early 70’s. Then all these misery were left to the Armed forces of Sri Lanka to deal with then and now with the help of the Indian involvement once more?.
      A Nation with 5-6 million people in early 1900 and now with 21 million in early 2000 with ample resources in the sea and the land should have meant a dignified life for all the children of Sri Lanka forever but not to be so hence I say this Child Malati should be remembered for all that was wrong with our society then and now. We make children but do not have parental control over them have been proven beyond reasonable doubt.

      Richard, Let me start with what you postulate: The laws must recognise us as Sri Lankans; To be identified as Sinhalese, Tamils etc must be made unlawful.
      .
      When this thinking was not in you; when you were unconcerned about identifying citizens as Sinhalese and Tamils, didn’t Malati and others have a strong valid reason to pursue liberation. Why call them terrorists; weren’t they Freedom Fighters.

    With “Ithu Sathyam” what is written is lies. How come she was wounded in her legs while she was in the bunker. If she wanted others to withdraw once she was wounded (Indian Army was there to help them), she asked others to with draw leaving her behind. Why di dnot she think withdrawing instead of attacking the IPKF. Look very stupid. Some rag tag army of Tamil women decided to attack IPKF. I can imagine why LTTE lost. Another Tamil – christian proff wrote in Ct, that Malathi was the head of a Child care center in a farm near Mullativu and handed over 12,000 Tamil children to the LTTE for training.

    Madam, Tamil desire to live in Sinhala majority areas is the big problem – for you as well as for us. ( I personally feel proud as a Sinhalese over this Tamil acknowledgement of inherent superiority of the Sinhala Buddhist society but regrettably their physical relocation into the envisaged Ealam is a precondition) Recently when Sumathitharan was asked if he would move to Jaffna he quipped why should I. You see madam thìs is the problem with EVERY Tamil. Please distribue your articles in Tamil among the Tamils (Tamil speaking people) in Sinhala majority areas. It is the utmost responsibility of TNA to educate Tamils in Sinhala majority areas over there eventual relocation, Please do not leave us with a Rohingia type situation.

      soma,

      Why don’t you give a little nudge, like in 1983, to Colombo-based personalities like Sumanthiran and Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam? Indeed, this very “precondition” of yours was implemented by the Sinhalese many times since 1958. Even Gota carried out such an expulsion in June 2007.

      Champika Ranawaka, on the other hand, insists on such a precondition so that Tamils can be easily pushed towards Nandikadal and finished off. Is the precondition for your motive also the same as Champika’s? Or are you genuinely interested in giving the Tamils their Eelam on a platter like Chandrika?

      Racist woman . Tamils do not desire to live in Sinhalese areas but are there through economic necessity, as the government deliberately neglects to develop Tamil areas, so that Tamils will move to Sinhalese areas and be dependent there for a living. Even if they develop anything in a Tamil area , local Tamils are not given jobs but Sinhalese from the south given lands and jobs, these so called developments, actually are a guise to settle Sinhalese in Tamil areas. Now the occupying armed forces , in conjunction with certain government departments like the department of forestry/land and archeological department, have occupied thousands of acres of the most fertile, productive and strategic Tamil lands in the north and east on some guise or another and are preventing the Tamils from earning a living from these lands, whist they are cultivating these lands , building hotels and restaurants on these lands and earning lots of money. Tamil fisherman are prevented by the armed forces to do deep sea fishing whilst Sinhalese fishermen from the South are again imported by the armed forces and allowed to do so with impunity with in Tamil areas. You are fully aware of all this you evil nasty racist woman but turn a blind eye to all these injustices perpetrated by the government and your armed forces in the name of Sinhalese Buddhism. During the war thousands of Tamils were forced to flee their lands due to deliberate bombing and harassment by the armed forces. If they could not flee to the west , they were forced to purchase lands/home or rent and live in Sinhalese areas. This was also deliberately done by the establishment. Another move to empty Tamil lands of Tamils and make them economically dependent on the Sinhalese. In spite of all these, 70% of the Indigenous Tamils still live in Tamil areas and it will be more if you count the still remaining ancient Tamil areas along the western coast along Puttalam/Chilaw.

      contd: Tamils have come peacefully to Sinhalese areas and legally purchased their lands and properties and have never attempted to Tamilise Sinhalese areas. In fact they have immensely improved the culture life and the economy of the Sinhalese areas. On the contrary Sinhalese have used the state and the 100% Sinhalese armed forces , to steal 30-35% of ancient historical Tamil lands , ethnically cleansed them , colonised these lands illegally. Even now immense government funds and resources are used to maintain these Sinhalese settlements in Tamil areas. The Sinhalese never came legally and purchased lands in Tamil areas but used the government to steal them from Tamils. Unlike the Tamils in Sinhalese areas , who live peacefully and amicably and improve the Sinhalese areas economically and in every other way. The Sinhalese presence in Tamil areas is the opposite. They deliberately come here to create chaos , violence and to intimidate the local Tamil population, so that more and more will leave and more Sinhalese can be brought in. They have not improved the local life or economy but due to their deliberate presence made life hell for the Tamils around the areas they have been planted by the government on ethnically cleansed Tamils lands. Tamil never attempted to Tamilise or change the history of the Sinhalese lands where they settled, However the Sinhalese do so with the help of the state. They first change the ancient Tamil place name to Sinhalaese then , deliberately distort the history of place , with the help of extremist Buddhist monks , Sinhalese politicians , government officials and the archeological department with, all sorts of fake history and planted evidence , that this area was indeed an ancient Sinhalese Buddhist land , that they have now reclaimed.

      contd: I have question racist woman. Tamils down south who have used their own resources have not even utilised or live in 1% of Sinhalese land. If you want them to leave , will the Sinhalese who have used the state resources and the Sinhalese armed forces to ethnically cleanse and steal 30-35% of the Tamil lands in the north and east and occupy them illegally , when will they leave and return these lands to the legal Tamil owners? You leave these lands and more than 90% of the Eelam Tamils will happily leave Colombo and the suburbs , sell their properties and return to the north and east , if true federalism and development is granted for the Tamil areas. Many Tamils did this , when they moved to the west and many will do it without a qualm. Do not think Tamils living in Colombo love the Sinhalese , they do not , they just tolerate you , as they have to. You want the Tamils, who legally purchased their lands down south and occupying less than 1% of Sinhalese lands to leave , without any compensation but do not want the Sinhalese who stole 30-35% of Tamil lands in the north and east to leave. Want to have the cake and east and scrounge on the Tamils and have free land from the Tamils hard work down south and in the north and east. Typical Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist, with a nasty racist attitude. You soft words do not fool me. You are nasty evil racist woman. Tamils will leave the south and similarly the Sinhalese who are now living on stolen Tamil lands in the north and east from the 1950s onwards , will also have to leave. If Tamils leave the south, especially the Indian origin estate Tamils and the Tamil businesses and industrialists, the southern economy will be in doldrums and many Sinhalese will become unemployed without any income.

        Mr. Siva Sankaran Sharma
        Thank you for your lengthy justification for Tamil (Tamil speaking people ) desire to live in the South which confirms to everybody that +50% Tamils (Tamil speaking people irrespective of their religion, caste or the date of arrival) are NOT asking for a Homeland to MOVE INTO. In political science this is called HOLIDAY RESORT MODEL. To those who promote this model in Sri Lanka I say go fly a kite. On the other hand if at least 90% of Tamils rise up and say “We want a separate Homeland to MOVE INTO. These bloody Sinhalese are murderous, discriminatory and vicious in every respect , read Colombo Telegraph regularly if you have any doubt” I tell my Sinhala friends “guys, this is no joke, don’t ever think that increasing defence budget will help. Our good Tamil brothers and sisters are going to leave us.”

    Dear Auntie

    I hope you are not asking the younger generation of Tamils to take-up to violence again, from your safe perch in Canada.

    How did you survive the war? Did you ever take up arms, like Adele B.? How come she did not take the cyanide capsule? Why is it that most of the women LTTE fighters who fought and those who died are the lower-caste and poor Tamils?

    Where were the rich, Vellalar Tamils during the war?

    Why were almost 100% of the suicide corp of the LTTE women? Were their lives less important to Tamil survival than mens’?

    Haven’t you seen the destruction that is caused when young immigrant generations are brain-washed by fundamentalists to use violence to fight for equality? Think ISIS ma’am.

    Please do now glamorize exploitation of poor, low-caste women and advocate violence.

If the concept of a Tamil Homeland is sincerely in what USK and the likes believe, why didn’t the likes of USK choose to be the canon fodder of the Thalaiver (the term translated to German is Fuhrer)? No! those of the likes of USK want to sow the seeds of hatred for different reasons and the space available does not permit me to elaborate. The need of the hour is amity between people.

    Dear Soma
    just a small correction to what you wrote – that you are the only Sinhalese to support the Tamils in their quest for a separate state. I am also a Sinhalese and have done this for decades. If on the Mahavamsa mindset, Sri Lanka is a Sinhalese-Buddhist country, the Tamils who are not Sinhalese and not Buddhists have no option but to have a separate Tamil homeland. it is as simple as that.

      But the problem dear Brian is this Tamil desire to live in Sinhala majority areas. My position is they (all Tamil speaking people scattered across the island) must choose between a Homeland OR the right to live anywhere. They obviouly can’t expect both you may agree. But without exception all Tamils on this forum demand they be allowed to continue living in Sinhala majority areas weakening there own argument that Sinhalese are racist, murderous and vicious in all respects. This is stinking hypocrisy. You may acknowledge that the moment you define the boundaries of the Tamil Homeland the rest of the island becomes Sinhala Homeland. It is only fair that Sinhalese demand they be relocated into their Homeland. Incidentally Mr Brian my definition of Tamils in respect of a political solution is ALL TAMIL SPEAKING PEOPLE IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR RELIGION, CASTE OR THE DATE OF ARRIVAL. What is your definition may we know?

        why are you dragging the muslims into this so called political solution of yours.They don’t consider themselves as tamils and they did not fight or want separation.By bringing them into your political solution you know very wel that your so called political solution is infeasible and only there to scare.Boooo to you.

        Now to a real possible solution.Are you willing to agree to a solution that all tamils including the estate people relocate to the north and east and all sinhalese in the north and east relocate out of those provinces,you are willing to give a seperate nation to the north and east.The muslims who are presently in north and east can continue to live there.Are you willing to have a solution such as this i propose.

          If you can give Hambantota, Port city, and many more to the Chinese why don’t you lease out the North and East to the Tamil Diaspora for 99 years. The will make it a Singapore and help you to lead a decent life.

          Now you want to devide the land into three.
          One common Homeland for all Tamil speaking people is the only solution the Sinhalese can (should) agree. If a substantial part of Tamil speakers are not prepared to share one homeland you are in a real fix until some day they do. You may kindly acknowledge that we can’t be bothered about differences among yourselves. Moreover you are assuming that those who practise Islam in the North East are prepared to form one administration with Hindu and Christian Tamil speakers. Hakim or anyone has already consented?

            why are you continuing with this tamil speaking nonsense.people who speak tamil are not tamils.they are muslims.Thre are many tamils who speak sinhalese.Are they sinhalese.I am also one of them.My sinhalese is more fluent than my tamil which is atrocious.Does that make me a sinhalese?Will you accept me as a sinhalese just because my tamil is poor and my sinhalese is fluent?Most muslims in sinhala areas speak sinhalese and can write sinhalese too and have even studied in the sinhala mediem.Are you going to accept them as sinhalese?Race and languages are quite different,so don’t get muddled up.

            Only reason you are trying to land the muslims onto us is because you know a muslim woman and her husband will dutifully follow the quoran and have as much children as they can while the tamil and sinhalese will be selfish and try to have the minimum children and enjoy life as much as possible.

            come out with sensible proposals and we can talk.In your earlier comment you said you will give the land in proportion to the population.I was not happy about it because we tamils have historically had homelands that are more than our proportion of the population,but still it is difficult to argue against you also because there is a sense of fairness too in your proposal.So that is the way to go forward with fairness,otherwise it will end up like india and pakistan having 3 wars after partition due to the kashmir issue.The solution must be fair to both.

            The ideal solution of course is to go into the 21st century like the Eu or india with one country and two seperate autonomous regions of north and east with quasi federal systems,but most of your compatriots don’t seem to want to go in that direction,so divorce seems inevitable due to the monks and military etc.

      Dear Dr Brian Senewiratne,
      .
      I do not approve of your overt and unqualified support of the LTTE. However, through you consistency and meticulous scholarship (how ever muddle-headed), you have earned the right to be critical of the Mahayana mindset. Although I disagree with you, I respect you.
      .
      We really must substitute for Mahayanism something more balanced. The Chief Guest at the Annual General Meeting of SL Association for the Advancement of Education on the 27th of September 2018, was Emeritus of History, Prof. W.I. Siriweera. He is currently Chairman of the National Education Commission. Unfortunate it was that he was handicapped by the after effects of a throat operation. I asked him if Sinhalese children are still taught (as we were) that we are Aryans, while Tamils are Dravidians. I also quoted the views Prof K. Indrapala in the book reviewed here:
      .
      http://www.island.lk/2007/03/07/midweek1.html
      .
      It was unfortunate that Siriweera throat was a real problem, but it didn’t look as though the Professor was sympathetic to a thorough rethinking of our History. He said that before authoring this book, Prof Indrapala had been sensible, but that now some Tamils were claiming that even Vijaya was a Tamil.
      .
      .
      I now have a request to make of Usha S Sri-Skanda-Rajah . Please scroll down the comments in this article:

        .
        What do you make of comments of that sort, purported to come from you? We have to patently put this country in order again. I’ve been doing what little I could.
        .
        Dr Brian Senewiratne has not responded, but that’s quite O.K. I asked him nothing. He’s been around for a very long time; I know a number of his relatives; they mostly say unkind things about him. I wanted to balance things by acknowledging his sincerity. But you are a younger person who should play a greater role in bringing about reconcilliation.
        .
        Soma’s position I don’t take seriously; it’s specious argumentation. Siva Sankaran Sharma, I don’t know whether he is even a Sinhalese, pretending to be otherwise. As for you, Usha, I’ve actually read now; you seem to be advocating unending violence. Unless we address problems honestly, we’d better give up trying to do anything ourselves, and let things drift.

      This is purely on the Sustainability aspect in this day and age where the Globe is Warming and the Resources are getting more and more scarce..

      Also that 11% must be in one piece and accommodate all of them.

        Sri lankan tamils are 11% and indian tamils are 4%. So when you say all of them in 11% of land are you including the indian tamils too,or can they stay with you.

      Whoever Dr you should be, just because your wife is a tamil, you must not go for a division fo the country.
      This country is not even bigger than Germany s Bavaria state. So just because they the tamils have been the majority in North and East, the country should not not be partioned and let them govern alone. If that is the case, we also give colombo too to the tamils and ALuthgama area to the Muslims. What a basis Dr B ?
      These are just not sustainable solutions. I think best would be federal like systems that would give more power to the communities in that areas so that we are all be considered as one nation. But the folks should be taught not to see races and religions as is the case in today s context. This can take long until people learn to tolerate.

    Some time ago, I saw news items that showed sri lanka army, a sinhala masculine patriarchial institution, ‘rehabilitating’ female ex-cadres into feminine roles such as beautician. They would rather see these women carry brushes, in other words fit into their traditional gender roles, than to rebel and break these barriers. LTTE, in the contrast, should be credited for breaking the gendered norms as probably half of their fighting force were women.

    Low caste Demalu in Yapanaya should fight against Wellala elites who think that they belong to high caste and oppress the low caste Demalu. If low caste Demalu take arms as freedom fighters against Wellala Demalu we will be able to see the true colors of Demalu who talk about freedom fighters against Sinhalayo. Most of the LTTE cadres came from low caste poor families. Now it is time for them to rise against your real oppressors. Come on guys. Start your freedom struggle.

        ” She had a right to live longer “

        As young and ambitious girl, with all the dreams and wishes full of her heart, the cute little pretty woman, probably that is all the right she had, on the land of Sinhala Only. On all other aspects of her life is concerned, she remained as practical prisoner, in the open air.
        1. If she has been travelling on the Colombo bus, she should have wiped her Pottu first.
        2. If she was identified on the road as a Tamil girl, especially during pogroms, she wouldn’t return home.
        3. If she goes to school, she must learn foolish, filthy Sinhala Bestiality, irrelevant of its contradiction to science?
        4. If she passes tests, she wouldn’t get the university.
        5. If she go to work, the Sinhala Only.
        6. If she is hurt by Rapist Army or police, which floods & spills all around Northern Eastern roads, she wouldn’t get judgement- The Sinhala Jury Only verdict!

        Malati practically had only two rights in her life. (Not really rights-but options. 1). Run away from JR’s hell like me and escape. 2).Take on the enemy face to face and fall dead printed name in bright florescent red of her blood on the sand she fell down. If Dutugamunu, the Tamil Hindu King from Tissamaharama, Kathirkamam area was on the throne, he might have inscribed on that plot “Here sleeps the princess from The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave; Pay your respect & maintain the salience”.
        Sinhala_Man Your last professor who can pour oil for your hungry fire is dying by the sickness in the throat. But your hope of Sinhala racism is burning ever bright in your heart. You are a man not ready to accept the facts. You have your own mold of SinhaLE Race; so you are spending your life confronting the truth & reality.

    Who was responsible for creating such a violent movement in which a female young cadre Malathi became a fighter to embrace violent death. This is a just single case where forces of a foreign country fought against our own people. Sensible people should really think what was the root cause. Sri Lanka government had ample opportunity to work towards real economic prosperity for the betterment of all its citizens. Ceylon was a wealthy country when the British left our shores in 1948. What were the successive governments doing? Shameful affair. We became the laughing stock in the eyes of other countries.

    The debate as to whether Tamil Liberation Fronts were activists or terrorists will go on till the cows come home.
    Remember Dayan Jayatillake was a Minister in one of the movements and now is Ambassador to Russia. The secret is in the Sinhala name.
    .
    Mau Mau were portrayed as ‘terrorist’ till Kenya gained independence. So was Nelson Mandela.
    .
    History will have the final say as to whether the Tamil Liberation movements were terrorist or not AND whether they were forced into militancy.

        soma says ~ “A terrorist is one kills and maims innocent third party civilians in furtherance of a political objective”.
        The killing started way way back when young student activists protesting against ‘Sinhala Only’ were kidnapped, killed by police and mutilated bodies were exhibited in furtherance of a political objective (to stifle dissent).
        Were the activists terrorists? They were airing a grievance soma.
        This method of addressing grievance escalated to random shelling by the then Ceylon Navy and barrel bombing by the fledging Ceylon Air Force.

    This ‘separation’ of the India/Pakistan partition type is being mooted. Seriously?
    From some of the comments here, one HAS to conclude that that this ‘separation’ motive was there for a few decades earlier. The “Sinhala Only” and the pogroms were nudges.
    .
    The proponents must try and find out as to whether the Total Sinhalisation of the Armed Services helped? Is the Police and the law enforcement bodies any better.

    The important thing in my life is I did not go and kill any one else in the Country because of what I belived as a solution to any of my problems specially when I am immature enough to make such decisions myself >> Child/Teenage/Adulthood etc applicable always. For me there is 4 era for all my thoughts and discussion basis >> pre colonial time ie before 1948/post colonial time until 1977 elections, post 1977 elections to 2009, Post 2009 to date. There were 5 million people then and now 20 million people and the world has gone through so many geo doliticalevents we supposed to survive to make ends meet too as if though normal life challenges in a developing country was not hard enough. All the above events applicable to the entire nation not exclusive to up north.

    Continued…….This goes back to what Richard said earlier in the first comment. In addition I share my thoughts as follows with you all my fellow Country men and women that we should focus on one nation/PM Parliamentary democracy with functional ministries/dissolve Provincial Councils and LG elections/Maintain Municipality elections/Compulsory military service/Compulsory 3 language education for all/Religions kept outside of politics/Foreign involvement kept strictly to trade and development issues/One memorial for all the children of the mother land died for various causes irrespective of the rights and wrongs in her journey to Justice for all/no religious, language, race base political parties. This oneness identity is possible if we all leave all other rhetoric that evokes the emotions of families who lost some one be it the armed forces/armed youths from north and south for our collective failures since we know our so called history. Nothing for us to look back and be proud of is what I think?? Then we will do what we need to do is to take care of all our people and their immediate and long term needs is what the author was trying to say. I will ignore all other statements in the article with regard to divisional politics for my discussion purposes as I never believed in them as solutions in the first place. This is no different from my disagreement to the JVP adventures too. I do believe we need answers/compensations from countries who may have contributed to this situations up north and south in our sovereign nation from day one. I am not referring to Colonial era rather the Cold War/geo political events ruined not just our Country but many other Nations too suffered the same fate.

    Part 1- Sumanasekera wants some information on Usha Sriskandarajah’s assets.

    I have known Usha and her outstanding husband, Bavan, for many years. They are some of the finest people I have ever met. I can answer some of the questions.

    How much does Usha earn per annum? That is not your business, any more than it is your business to know how much I earn.

    Let me tell you a few things about the Sriskandarajahs since the questions you ask are to smear Usha. Usha is undoubtedly the finest Tamil writer alive today. This is why so many of us have the highest respect for her. To have a twerp like you trying to smear this outstanding person is simply unacceptable.

    Bavan, her husband, has a doctorate from Cambridge University, and is a professional who has worked hard for years. When you work as a professional, you earn money. Perhaps you are not aware of this. His father was Justice Pon Sriskandarajah, once a District Judge in Jaffna and later a Judge of the Supreme Court, the highest court in the island at that time next to the Privy Council in Britain.

    At the age of 19, Bavan saved the lives of more than 90 Tamils who had taken refuge in the Sriskandarajah home in Ratmalana during the 1968 anti-Tamil pogrom. They had to flee their homes and run for their lives when Sinhalese thugs and hooligans attacked them. Some had already been stabbed when they left their burning houses.

    • 4
      1

      Part 2- One of Bavan’s sisters (whom I know) was a young doctor at that time (she later became a renowned eye-surgeon) and his other siblings were dressing and caring for the wounds of those who had been stabbed until Col F.C De Saram and his troops came and evacuated them to a refugee camp.

      May I ask you, Sumanasekera, what you were doing when all this carnage was occurring? Looking the other way, or were you with the thugs and hooligans who attacked those who took shelter in the Sriskandarajah home?
      You want to know how much Usha’s house is worth. I know for a fact that she is in a one room unit in Toronto without enough room to even put me up for the night when I visited Toronto in April 2018.

      Her pension fund? She actually has none. Even if she did, what business it that of yours?

      What she makes from her “Day job”. She does not have a ‘day job’. She just writes and writes and writes – and is not paid.

      You refer to Usha’s boss “Mr Pirahaparan” (your spelling). She does not have a ‘boss’ – just an outstanding husband who is a professional and a well-known human rights activist in Canada.

      The editor of Colombo Telegraph, Uvindu Kurukulasuriya, is a Sinhalese whom I know well. He is an exceptional person who has struggled to get the Colombo Telegraph to where it is today. It is disappointing that the gutter comments you made were published and not sent into the nearest gutter or dustbin.

        Coming from such a distinguished family with Daddy being a SC Judge and the Sister with a Specialist Medical Degree, why would Ms Usha has to live in a One Bedder in Toronto ?.

        I know expats who were just bookkeepers in Lankawe now living in Mansions in Scarborough and even in your new Homeland, Queensland.

        If Skandarajas could achieve such Heights in Social Status in Lankawe, why did Mr Pirahaparan want to Liberate them?…

          Most probably she must have seen you carrying your local saffron clad thug’s b***s in one hand and a large petrol can in the other during the 1983 riots. The horrifying experience would have forced here to leave the island for good. Would you like to have yourself killed by your neighbours, suffron thugs, aided by your local police, and imported thugs, every few years or so?

          “If Skandarajas could achieve such Heights in Social Status in Lankawe, why did Mr Pirahaparan want to Liberate them?…”

          Being a Sinhala/Buddhist little fascist Rohana Wijeweera could have achieved dizzying height, why did he want to liberate liberate the innocent people in the South?

    Freedom fighters LMAO. Where were all these tough Tamil warriors when europeans conquered their lands ? Why didn’t they fight for their so called freedom back then ? What were they doing ? Never heard of any Tamil rebellions against europeans. Did Tamils live in their “homeland” at the time Portuguese arrived ? Did Dutch bring them to their “homeland” from Tamil Nadu ? Is that the reason why these warriors couldn’t fight? Please someone explain this to me. Freedom fighters…my arse.

      I think you are really PISSU. Have you forgotten the fact that SANGLIYAN and KAKKAI Vanniyan fought the Britishers till the end unlike the Sinhala kings who handed over their kingdoms in a ‘copper plate’ to the Portuguese, Britishers and the rest.. They went down fighting. This historical evidences are eclipsed in the present history books. Even Prabaharan went down fighting India, America, Pakistan, CHINA and Srilanaka . in fact he fought against the world and Died. He did not run away.
      Refer the article written by Mr.Manoharan published in the Colombo Telegraph recently.

        Oh puhleeze. Stop lying.Sankilis spoke Sinhala. Even the treaty between them and Portuguese invaders was written in SINHALA and Portuguese. Not a word in Tamil. Original copy of the treaty still exist.

        Also funny how these clowns trying to rewrite the history. KAKKAI Vanniyan who ? I just checked Wikipedia. And saw a load of BS there. He is said to be the last tamil king of vanni !! He married a Sinhalese woman. Wonder who were the previous vanni Tamil kings ? There are other Tamil fantasies in Wikipedia too. Jaffna kingdom LOL. Not a single name of a Jaffna king in the article though. There is no end to their lies. These idiots need to back their BS with at least some evidence. Any Tamil monuments or stone scriptures ? Any Tamil chronicles ? Nothing. just pure fantasy.
