Tamilization, Some Religious Customs And The Naked Adjective

By C. Wijeyawickrema

Introduction

The editors of Colombo Telegraph asked me to respond to the “comments” made by its readers to my essay titled, “Sinhala women without Sinhalization power.” I consider it my public duty to do this even though most comments are nonsense (noise) by anonymous people who think CT is another website like the Tamilnet (located in Canada?). I think I am the only person writing to CT about the discrimination faced by the Sinhala Buddhists in Sri Lanka both before and after 1948, and so far my essays are the only evidence CT has to erase the perception that it is not an anti-Sinhala Buddhist website. It can be an anti-MahindaR website as reveals from Tisaranee Gunasekera’s writings, but it should not be a forum for those who want to divide the island and create another South Sudan for the benefit of white global corporate powers. The readership of CT, going by the comments on my essay, is mostly like mad dogs barking at the moon as the caravan passes. This discourages spending time to respond to comments. But there is some hope as two or three readers understood what I wrote and asked others to read it slowly and carefully.  The different readership tastes are clear when I consider the response given to the same essay by the Lankaweb readers. I hope CT readers visit Lankaweb also to understand the other side of the coin on Sri Lankan ethnic/separatist politics.

The naked adjective

At the outset I must accept that the only word in my essay that I regret using was the naked in the “naked body of the bride.” Yes, the adjective was unnecessarily provocative and gave the appearance that it was meant to disgrace a religious custom. Some got so agitated to elevate the incident mentioned as a religious rite!  For example, I can understand the gravity of my mistake if I say “at Polonnaruwa there is an ancient Siva Temple, which has a naked Siva lingum, and Sinhala women and even Tamil women from South India come to worship it thinking they can become mothers with a gift of a child.” Only recently I came to know that the base on which the Siva lingum rests symbolizes a woman’s yoni.  Unlike the Khajuraho stone-carved Tantric love scenes, the sacred nature of the Siva Lingum worship could be polluted by someone using the adjective Naked before the words Siva Lingum.  As a Buddhist I could never approve white soldiers urinating on the Koran or disrespecting any religious symbols or customs. So I apologize for hurting the feelings of those genuine and reasonable commenters of my essay.  But this is a good example to point out that when Buddha’s images are used on slippers, T-shirts and skirts by white female tourists, no non-Buddhists say a word against it!

 When Wigneswaran used words such as Tamil genocide along with Sinhalaization, others like me have a right to ask him about how his sons’ marriages were performed, because I saw a photograph of such a Sinhala-Tamil wedding with the bride given a bath.

When Wigneswaran used words such as Tamil genocide along with Sinhalaization, others like me have a right to ask him about how his sons’ marriages were performed, because I saw a photograph of such a Sinhala-Tamil wedding with the bride given a bath.

But the story I said about what was done to the bride is based on the wedding pictures that I saw at her house, may be 25 years after the wedding. I never write untruth or half-truths in my internet communications which I began in 1987 or so in Canada. Since one Dr. Rajasingham Narendran disputes the custom, could it be a kind of removing pollution by giving the non-Hindu woman a bath? The groom was a son of a Tamil civil servant. Was it similar to the Math Prof. Sundaralingum, trying to prevent caste pollution of a Jaffna Hindu Kovil or the purification rites done at that famous Sri Krishna Hindu Kovil in Kerala when Kovil trustees think that its premises was polluted by an accidental visit by say a Christian? For example, Sonia Gandhi cannot enter that temple (kovil). I do not know if Manmohan Singh is not allowed because he is a Sikh.

Tamilization

When I was in Sri Lanka for seven months recently, I had an opportunity to visit the State Agriculture School in Vavuniya. Waiting in the van outside while others were in the office, I saw a woman near an entrance gate and went to talk with her expecting she would know some English. She looked to me a typical older Tamil woman. When I tried to communicate with her in English asking if she can talk in Sinhala, she replied to me in Sinhala. To make a long story short, long time ago she eloped with an estate Indian Tamil and finally ended up in Vavuniya. She said her sons had a hard time during Prabakaran days. Her Sinhala family severed all connections with her and in fact asked me if I can go and meet with them and tell about her.

This shows that it is not possible to convert a Sinhalaya to a Tamil or vice versa, unless a person has a willingness to do so. If a person has a healthy opinion about his or her own culture that person cannot be “converted” to another culture. We heard that the Karawa caste and other similar castes in the western coastal areas were recent migrants from South India. They became assimilated and later played a big role in rejuvenating Buddhism in Sri Lanka. It is said that even SWRDB was a descendent of recent Tamil migrants. The only evidence that I could think of was the present custom of a man marrying his sister’s daughter found in Karnanataka even today, because SWRD’s mother was his father’s sister’s daughter.

Seven River Basins: 1. Yalpanam 2. Raja Rata 3. Dambadeni  4. Mahaveli  5. Deegavaapi  6. Kelani    7. Ruhunu (Compare this map with the nine-province map which cuts all major rivers into artificial pieces).

When Wigneswaran used words such as Tamil genocide along with Sinhalaization, others like me have a right to ask him about how his sons’ marriages were performed, because I saw a photograph of such a Sinhala-Tamil wedding with the bride given a bath. This is doubly important as W has (or had) a habit of saying some Sanskrit stanza at public meetings which I think, no one understands other than he himself, because he does not provide a translation. Therefore, if he wants he can say like the Muslim Congress MP, M. T. Hasen Ali (ref. his speech reported on CT) that there is a land issue or a land grabbing, but not Sinhalization.  He says that the matter should be handled on a humanitarian basis.  This is what Wigneswaran should also copy. What had happened to the historic Muhudu Maha Viharaya reduced from 269 acres in 1951 to 0.25 acre in 2013 is due to land grab and not a Muslimization.  The land in NP or EP does not belong exclusively to one ethnic group in Sri Lanka. Each time W utters genocide and Sinhalaization he loses either sympathy or support from Sinhalayas who fear a future Tamil Nad invasion to capture Sri Lanka.

Seven River Basins

This is the most scientific, ecological method to empower Tamil, Muslim and Sinhala village people which will also erase fears of the majority Sinhala. Under such method there is no room for a separatist Tamil dream in Sri Lanka while it empowers Tamils to protect and promote their own Tamil nationalism at village level or at a river basin-level (like the present NP area). For those who want to know more, CT archive has it all saved under my name.  The river basin units can be seven or more depending on how people at village level decides as each river basin is a collection of ecologically demarcated GSN units. The current number of 14,000 GSN units, after they are re-demarcated according to hydrological-ecological basis would be much closer to the number of GSNs (4,000) when Rpremadas decided to increase it. There will be so many ecologically demarcated GSN units with 100% Tamil population (or Muslim) that they can have all kinds of their collective aspirations promoted, except separatism.

Buddhism and human body

Since comments by readers were all about the bride and bath, I thought of writing what I know about religion and human body. Buddhism is perhaps the only religion which does not mess up with human body or animal sacrifice.  From the time Abraham wanted to sacrifice his son to God circumcision has become a religious thing with Judaism and Islam. Human sacrifice was among the Inca and Mayan people in South America.  Humans eating humans was part of human evolution and now when it happens it is considered a severe mental sickness. For example, in USA a white man named Jeffry Dahmer dismembered 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991 and he kept human brains in his freezer so that he can enjoy eating it whenever he wanted.

Even piercing ears is not approved in Buddhism. But even now some women in Africa suffer by the practice of the removal of female clitoris. Buddhists consider human body consists of 32 decaying components and this attitude is behind the reason why Sri Lanka has been donating “eyes” to the world.  What we see at Kali Amma temples where Animal are slaughtered or what I see at Katagama or Wellawatta where human skin is pierced with hooks and pulled with ropes, I think how as a Buddhist I am free of such cruelty in the name of religion. Think of all those Islam processions in Iraq where men torture their bodies by hitting so hard repetitively with blood oozing out from the skin. In India Jainism has a branch where they go naked. Once when Indira Gandhi wanted to meet such Jain leader, IG had to stay outside a screen where the naked Jain leader was sitting. These are extreme situations due to extreme religious beliefs.

The most important thing is that in Buddhism we are expected to follow the Middle Path. This is compromise in democracy or reasonableness in western jurisprudence. Buddhism is very simple, it is like an Einstein formula: 4NT+8NP (four noble truths and the eight noble path). When two ex-Indian presidents, both non-Buddhists, repeat that the solution to world’s problems lies in Buddhism, they are asking people like Wigneswaran and MahindaR to be reasonable and genuine.  When W says that there is Tamil genocide in Sri Lanka he becomes a liar.

When Ravi Karunanayake became the chief of the Dayaka Sabha of the Kotte Rajamaha Vihara who was the fool; the Buddhists or the monk who allowed it or the Catholic Ravi who accepted it? Like that those who write nasty or useless comments on CT essays they dislike are people without the help of critical thinking. Those who believe in a God or gods hand over there power of critical thinking to a God or gods relying on God or gods to rescue them, help them. In Buddhism this is not so: we are expected to come and examine, not come and believe.  This is what the two ex-Indian presidents expect when they talked about the power of Buddhism. Sri Lankan Tamil separatism can be and must be handled by the Buddhist approach. This what the Bodu Bala Sena is telling the world.

      Some Tamils still practice marrying the niece (have friends) and some Sinhalese marry cousins. They are less frequent now perhaps due to this ‘HEALTHY RESPECT/OPINION THEY HAVE FOR THEIR CULTURE’

      TODAY WE ARE ABOUT THE CAR AND NOT ABOUT THE BULLOCK-CART, CRICKET & RUGBY, ENGLISH EDUCATION, SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY, TROUSER AND SHIRT, SO ALL LANKANS ARE IN THE SAME BOAT.

      ‘Healthy opinion’ is a matter of opinion, even the opinionated fail to understand.

    If indeed this can as Mr.Wijewickrema says erase fears of the sinhala,then 80% of the ethnic issue problems are solved.The root cause of the problem is the sinhala fears.It reminds me of the small dogs always yapping and showing that they are not scared while the big ones are calm and quiet.The teeming millions in tamilnadu make the sinhalese paranoid.If they were not there i think we would not have had so many problems between the sinhalese and the tamils.When i transfer myself into the shoes of a sinhala i can see this fear clearly.The more we reduce this fear the better for all of us.

      You are right. The Sinhala fears are the main reason. The politicians of both sides exploit it. LTTE exploited those fears well. Mahinda stood against the LTTE because he cultivated good relations with India.

      I dont know why this 80% population is in fear or insecure life. Dont they know the current political recognition?

    Speaking about Buddhism and the Human Body,the Buddha is always
    shown to have been bald,as shown by statues and paintings – no hair on head,and, clean shaven – no facial hair.
    How did he shave his head and face daily – or,who did it for him?
    When he passed away,his body was cut up into many parts,hair (not from head) was pulled out (there are ‘hair relics’),and, teeth were pulled out (we have a ‘tooth relic’).
    Will the author elucidate?

    The core of the thought of Mr. Wijewickrema and other Sinhala supremacists is to bifurcate the Eastern Province with its Tamil
    majority influence – under constant attack by Colonisation,
    surreptitious mis-appropriation of Tamil land in the area by the armed services and so on. Any settlement in the future should be on the condition of the ethnic reality at the turn of the 19th century
    in so far as the Eastern Province is concerned. Such an arrangement
    must include guarantees to the Muslims, Sinhalese and Burghers in the
    Province (and their successors) of their land and assets.

      ” with its Tamil majority influence “

      A new argument in place of the oft heard ‘traditional homeland’ fiction. This ofcourse includes those Tamil speaking Muslims, who were found to be unsuitable to live in the areas controlled by the “human rights loving” barbarian, Prabhakaran. Tamils are the most recent arrivals in the region and why they should dictate what happens there is beyond any reasonable person’s comprehension, except to satiate the greed for ‘free’ land for the latter.

    The author of the article is still confused about the rites in a Hindu wedding. Bathing of the groom and the bride (never a naked bathing as such) is a traditional rite followed in. ANY Tamil Hindu wedding and not something reserved to be observed only for a bride of another community.

    Division of zones or provinces on the basis of river basins may be justifiable for an agricultural economy but not for a modern economy.

    C. Wijeyawickrema says, “As a Buddhist I could never approve white soldiers urinating on the Koran or disrespecting any religious symbols or customs. So I apologize for hurting the feelings of those genuine and reasonable commenters of my essay.”

    You are such a bloody hypocrite dragging white soldiers as an example when you could so easily have given an example of your own Sinhala Buddhist brothers who attacked 3 Christian churches on Christmas eve. And have you forgotten the mosques and kovils that have been vadalised by your BBS, Sinhala Ravaya and Ravana Balaya brothers?

    Every race and religion has it’s share of racists. Buddhism is a wonderful philosophy, but the so called “Sinhala Buddhism” practiced by the majority in this country along with the blind belief in the Mahavamsa myths has been the root cause of many of this countries problems.

    You need to read the articles of Sharmini Serasinghe on Buddhism in Sri Lanka including this one.

    Why should not 4 be extend to the coast through 7 ? Why cannot 6 and parts the remaining parts of 7 be merged ?

    Why cannot 1, the eastern part of 2, the eastern part of 4 and 5 be merged? Parts of Anuradhapura and Polonaruwa can be part of this combined entity extending along the eastern coast.

    Can you please explain the rationale for the proposed design as 1 as proposed does not have any perennial rivers and is not part of the Mahaweli diversion scheme as it exists today.

    Sinhalication or Tamilication cannot be considered on the basis of isolated instances of inter racial marriages. It will apply only on a mass scale as being resorted to by the Sinhala supremacist government.

    It is true that a very large number of people who settled along the coastal belt from Chilaw downwards upto Bentota were people of Tamil origin. This could be seen even today from the boat arrivals in Australia from this belt, a number of whom who have Sinhala names but are more fluent in Tamil than in Sinhala. Perhaps a late realisation that even Sinhalication did not help them forced them to risk the high seas!

      When I was working in Chilaw, Moratuwa and Panadura, I wondered why those “Sinhalese” shout “Api thothukidiyatta yanda baha” whenever neighbourly disputes erruptted.

      But a sizable Kerala population also in those areas.Our office SINHALA typists FRIGIA DIAZ and Rohini Fernando always maintained they were Sinhalese but one day I noticed both of them talk in good Tamil. I was frozen. Later I talked in Tamil only with them. Once I went to Christmas party, most of those guys were talking Tamil. Rohini’s father told me of his Kerala connections. But Diaz’s brother who was also Sinhala typist always pretended as a Sinhala. These all happened in the 70s and 80s.

        MY RADALA FRIENDS (RATWATTE & TENNAKONE) CALL THEIR FATHER ‘APPA’.
        I always wondered why, whether it was an Appatchhi corruption. Found out later about the Radala South Indian Connection. Infact the last 7 kings have been pure or mainly Tamil/Telegu, then again most king had married from South India throughout history, so what escape for others.

        Cannot still understand why the ”Sinhalayas” call ‘Appatchhi’ (like Thangattchi) when the unique word is ‘Tatha’.

        The European names are common to both Sihala and Tamil, then again there are Weerasingha and Weerasingham and load of these Sinha/Sinhams, Tunga/Tungan, Sekara/Sekaran, Kara/Karan, Nayaka/Nayagam, Bandara/Pandaram and Raja among both Tamils and Sinhalayas.

        WHEN YOU ANALYSE IT, THESE NAMES THAT FINISH WITH PALA, DASA, RATNE (GENERALLY CONSIDERED ‘LOW CASTE’) ARE THE NAMES NOT SHARED BY TAMILS.

          Appachchi is used in Tamil nadu also. But in Kerala appachchi is father’s sister.

    Mr Wijewickrama’s position is that of the simplistic and standard Sinhala racist, that the British practised “divide and rule”, and that they favoured the Tamils. Some years ago there was an email campaign by this person and his fellow racists that targeted Sri Lankan academics in US universities, branding them as enemies of Sri Lanka and Buddhism. In particular they targeted the distinguished Harvard anthropologist Stanley Tambiah and the equally distinguished Princeton anthropologist Gananath Obeyesekere. Some readers of the CT may have been recipients of those junk emails. At that time Mr Wijewickrama had Americanised himself as “Chand Wije”. While himself living in America and enjoying its freedoms and comforts, Chand Wije prefixed the names of his victims as “American living”. This hypocrisy, overtly attacking the west, and secretly loving it, is a characteristic marker of all these “patriots” and defenders of the “motherland”, ranging from the grandfather of Sinhala Buddhist extremism Anagarika Dharmapala, Jatika Chintanaya heores like Nalin de Silva and Gunadasa Amarasekera, down to the foot soldiers like Wijewickrama, and Wimal Weerawansa back at home.

    Even at this late stage when it is plainly obvious that the way forward for Lanka is
    not through these confrontations and hypocrisies, but through moderation and accommodation, Wijewickrama is advocating Sinhala extremism, explicitly supporting the Budu Bala Sena, the extremism of which is qualitatively identical to that of the Tamil extremism of the LTTE, and after its defeat, the extreme sections of the Tamil diaspora. He slings mud at the moderate NPC Chief Minister Wigneshwaran, accusing him of separatism, little realizing that the separatist movement is given legitimacy precisely by the extremism of himself and his fellow Sinhala supremacists whose real power in the background is the dictatorial Rajapaksa regime.

    Having missed the golden opportunity at national reconciliation at the defeat of the LTTE, the MR regime had another opportunity at the election of Justice Wigneshwaran as the NPC Chief Minister. With Wigneswaran and other moderates like Sumanthiran, who are cultured, patriotic Sri Lankans, the MR regime, if it had any interest in the happiness, welfare and prosperity of the country, could have embarked on a realistic journey of national reconciliation. The opportunity is still open, but the MR regime’s interests are not in national reconciliation but profiteering by staying in power as long as possible, and building a dynasty.

    We don’t need provinces based on river basins. The existing 9 provinces have functioned well ever since they were established.

      Ruwan,

      I salute you. I have always believed there are a large number of our Sinhalese brothers – both academics and others – able to see matters in perspective and above manufactured prejudice. Both Prof. Tambiah and Gananath Obeysekera are outstanding scholars, respected by the world academia. I am privileged to have inter-acted with both of them in Colombo academic circles. There is no way they will stoop down to cheap and opportunistic politics – whatever the price is. Happily, the situation is becoming better – with even the once bitterly anti-Tamil JVP, changing their stance. One sees them more in the North now than ever before.

      The name Chand Wije will appear to some as designed to be identified with the large Indian population in the USA – many of whom highly respected scholars and professionals. But I do not dispute the reason put forward by CW here – to make matters easier for his US audience.

    Bullshit vomited in the of Buddhism by a pseudo Racist Buddhist who is supporting violence in the name of Buddhism and destroying and abusing other religions. Go to hell

    [Even piercing ears is not approved in Buddhism]

    Oh C. Wijeyawickrema, search about buddha’s ear in Google which gives tons of pictures of pierced ear of Buddha.

    [What we see at Kali Amma temples where Animal are slaughtered or what I see at Katagama or Wellawatta where human skin is pierced with hooks and pulled with ropes, I think how as a Buddhist I am free of such cruelty in the name of religion. ]

    If you are a True Buddhist as envisaged in Buddhism and true follower, Go to chicken and mutton stalls, Non veg Hotels and preach your Buddhists fellas not to kill them in the name of Food.

    These animals and birds killed by Sinhalese are also created by God.

    Damn it.

    Buddhism is not a religion and Buddha is not God since he never asked anyone to worship him, according to the Dhamma Buddhism. It is according to the Mahavamsa Buddhism only Buddhists are worshiping Buddha as a God, and even worshiping Hindu Gods. All your arguments are based on a man written/fabricated Mahavanmsa which says that Buddhists comes from the union of LION and a WOMAN. May be that’s one of the reasons why you don’t like animals being killed, and your MR government exposed its brutality by killing human instead of animals. Buddhists way of life in this present world is not at all practiced as Buddha said but as Mahavamsa author Mahintha thero wanted or corrupted politicians like MR regime wants which is displayed through caste based nikayas which is similar to Hindu community. when most of you worship Hindu Gods, when you kill human in battle field and chicken for meals, when you have nikayas when your biddhist girls are exposed their body for others to see completely against Buddhism, when number of monks are convicted with rape, robbery, murder and all, what are trying to point your finger at Hinduism. If you want to critic about something do not base your arguments on Wickneswaran’s sons wedding photo. be a profession writer, and try to preach your foolish Buddhists to be Buddhists like what Lord Buddha wanted.

    You got it right buddy. If there was no Tamil Nadu on the other side I do not think the sinhalas would even mind an eelam.

    This guy has no knowledge of Hindu religion or practices. He talks about ear piercing but he did not tell a single word how the so called Buddhists killed thousands of Tamils in 1983.

    He talks about Lingam and Kajuraho. Lingam is a depiction of male and female. Creation of humans comes from male and female and not from the apple of Adam and eve. Hindus believe in Lingam because of the natural process of creation. Did Buddha tell how humans are created?

    This man dont know HINDU bride and groom must take a bath before the wedding take place. I hope the sinhala woman did not take a bath on that day.

    Buddha never asked to build dagopas and worship him like Hindus. Why?

    Shiranthi Rajapakse, a catholic lied to the Guruvayoor krishna temple authorities that she is a Buddhist. That is one of the reason for the purification.

    This man knows nothing about the practices at the temple of Kerala. All the people of Indian religions will be allowed in the temple.

    Who is Sonia? She is a Catholic and she has no business in a Hindu temple while she believe Hinduism is SATAN.

    President Mahinda was allowed in the Temple and he had THULABARAM pooja also but Sri Lanka’s first lady lied. This fellow dont feel any shame for the act of Shiranthi, but happy to ridicule the Hindus.There is no Sinhala Buddhism which is a product based on Catholic religion. That is why many Pereras and Silvas become Somaramas and Buddha Rakittas.

    This man tells no one understand Vigneswarans Sannskrit Stanzas. Can this fool tell how many Sinhalese understand the PALI sermons of bhikkus in Viharas. How many Sinhalese understand the preaching of BANA by the monks in the Viharas with a horrible noise all nights?

    Can he tell why Sinhala Buddhists have different nikayas or sects based on CASTEs while talk about prof. Sundaralingam?

    Is this idiot thinks Tamils know nothing about Buddhism and Sinhalese? This man is a half baked potato and anti-Tamil and expect to assimilate like Karawas. He is basically a full grown racist.

    I am a Hindu and not supporting the division of Sri lanka. Buddha was a Hindu prince and a reformer of Hindu religion. Many hindu reformers like Buddha were born and dead.

    Buddhism vanished in India because of the hegemony of Sangha. Ashoka empire was unable to stay for two generations. Sinhala Buddhist monks want all the comforts of the world. From Benz car, concubines, bank accounts, and many more. That is why Buddhism is losing respect from others.

    Kelani Rajamaha Vihara is a historic temple but administered by Christian Wijawardenes for decades. Ranil, who is a Christian, is the Dayaka sabha member or chief. That temple became a place to make plans to kill S.W.R.D.Bandranayake.

    J.R.Jayawardene clan came from Kerala and became super Sinhala buddhists while following Christianity!

    Catholic Church, the handlers of LTTE, has hopes to divide the nation even today because of the Shiranthi factor and duplicity of Sinhalese!

        Thanks. Buddha asked to observe and realize the truth.

        Buddha did not tell much about “defending a nation”. So, Buddhists have no way to defend the nation and follow Hindus or others to defend the nation.

        When conflicts comes Buddhists have no option but to follow the Hindu ” Danur Veda” which talk about war and defending a nation. That is why Gemunu and Rajapakse prayed at Hindu Kataragama Deiyo or Kanthaswamy at Kataragama-Kathirgamam.

      It doesnt matter how hard you try you can never be a Tamil. So why dont you give up this nonsense and be yourself which is born Sinhalese. There is nothing wrong in being Anti LTTE and there are many Tamil Traitors but the problem with you is you hide under a Tamil Name. Take for instance the Ex LTTE Traitor Karuna ( By the way he single handedly killed thousands of Sinhalese Soldiers whom you support) even he doesnt write Anti LTTE slogans like you.

      So be it – momentarily. May I point out the days of crude thuggery (1956, 1958, 1977, 1981, 1983 and others) where hundreds of IRCs and rowdies were set upon innocent Tamils to loot their homes/assets is now over in a more caring world. R2P is just the beginning. Setting up a combined modern armed force of over 300,000 from land, sea and air on a shoe-less rag tag armed resistance of about 15,000 (the State’s figures) is not a military victory to boast about – for years. Let me add, most Tamils too did not agree with the LTTEs ways now that most Sinhalese are made to believe “all tigers are Tamils and therefore all Tamils are tigers” Mattakalappu, Thirukonamalai and areas thereto were
      predominantly Tamil as language and culture establishes beyond doubt.
      I agree strident steps are being taken to alter the face and history of the historic Koneswaram Temple. Like Kadirgamam in the border of the EP in the South very soon this place will be Sinhaliced. Even to change the face of the venerated Tiruketheeswaram Temple(Mannar) is in the cards – with the army surrounding the Temple for years in recent times.

      This has happened earlier in history but eventually the Status Quo has been restored.

        If the Tamils still want to be the tail pieces of Christian Whites, many changes will happen in Sri lanka.

        S.J.V.Chelvanayakam, a converted christian moron, created a party because he did not like the GG Ponnambalam with a Sanadal pottu.

        He took the Tamil issues to destroy Tamils. Now the Tamils who went behind the Christian donkeys expect the return of the same old WHITE christians to Sri lanka.

        Further SJVS went to Galleface and demanded the cancellation of the official language act and wanted ENGLISH to continue. Who will accept it ? For whose benefit English?

        S W R D Banadaranayake brought Tamil language as the medium of instruction to the Tamils. He made Hinduism in schools. His wife Sri Mavo founded the university of Jaffna. Did you guys ever acknowledge it? Even the Jaffna fools under Selavanayakam refused the university of Jaffna.

        Selvanayagam’s legacy is a grade seven educated criminal smuggler Prabhakaran and a grade two dropout saloon sweeper Tamil selvan.

        The evolution of the TAMIL struggle is barbaric and backward. First you repair it.

        I have no agreement with the issue of Kataragama a Hindu palce of worship made as a Buddhist holy area. Did Selvanayakam ever voiced against it? No..noooo because he was happy of the destruction of the Hindus.

        Dont expect WHITE masters will come to the rescue of the tamils ever.

          “For whose benefit English?” Why don’t you write in tamil instead for this blog.You get all the benefits of english and then ask for whose benefit.Why don’t you go to a tamil blog and see how much of international exposure your comments will get.Because this world consists of so many ethnic groups and languages people need a common language to communicate and a business language to to business with other ethnic groups all over the world.English has been selected to fulfil that role because great Britain at one time by having the largest empire in history had the highest spread of its language all over the world.We were lucky that we too were able to learn english automatically because we were a colony of britain.I have come across so many people struggling and learning english in countries that were not ruled by britain.We got it the easy way and don’t appreciate it.Easy come easy go they say.

          BTW if you hate the white people so much what are you doing in Toronto enjoying their hospitality and dole.Why don’t you go back to your village in jaffna sit with all the goats and chickens around you and chew your betel and spit it out.

            To do business in Sri lanka, Sinhala and Tamil are better enough than English. All the people are not doing business at “International level”. English is not needed in Canada to sell koththu rotti, dosa and other stuff also.

            Look at China and Japan. Are all the people study English? Tamils feels proud to use English because they think speaking in English elevate them as the former WHITEs. That is why in Tamil films the hero appear in three piece clothing when he become a wealthy person.In India more English education is available but those Indians cannot reach the prosperity of China and Japan or Russia.

    To: Ruwan Jayamanne and Thavarajah,

    1. There is no magic behind my name. When I came to USA I found people had a hard time pronouncing and writing my name in English. So when I became a university teacher I shortened it so that my students will not have a hard time using my name. Then with US citizenship I got it legalized. But in communication with my natives I continued the name i used in Sri Lanka.

    2. I wrote essays challenging Tambiah, Obeysekera, HL Seneviratne and CR de Silva about there false statements in their writings and books. If Colombo Telegraph agrees I can send them to CT to print. This way the truth will come out.

    One has to ask the question what is world renowned and what is high esteem. For example for some Mother Teresa is a saint. But the district attorney of Los Angeles California, asked her to return the donations she received from an elderly people’s bank deposit cheater Keating and she did not(Google under Keating-five savings and loan robbery for details)She was asked to do this because she wrote a letter to the DA asking pardon for the cheat.

    I am in full agreement with you on the above statement. In 1983 we sheltered many of our Family friends. This was a common thing among many Sinhalese people. My father had seen with his own eyes a young couple being burnt alive. Fully upset by what he had seen , upon coming home he said we Sinhalese will pay for these acts for years to come and we did. I remember my mother openly justifying LTTE attacks on the innocent Sinhalese civilians due to the guilt we carried over the 1983 rots. With time the guilt faded away thanks to the LTTE. LTTE could have been finished off in its infancy but due to Indian pressure as well as our politicians not having the will to finish it off made the rag tag army into monster. The victory came at a high cost since many soldiers and civilians died too.

    “Mattakalappu, Thirukonamalai and areas thereto were predominantly Tamil as language and culture establishes beyond doubt.”

    I hope you are not referring to the districts above and only referring to the towns. Yes these two towns are Tamil speaking in character, but Muslim presence is significant. Also just south of Trinco town is the historic Seruvila Rajamaha viharaya the latest site in Sri Lanka to be considered as a UNESCO heritage site (Under consideration. It will be difficult for you to justify to the international community to have a narrow strip of the eastern province along the east coast (where it is Tamil speaking in character) due to the above stated facts, the fact that it was never a part of Tamil territory in the past.
    Now in a previous article I replied to you why East(The entire Eastern Province) can not be included in a Tamil province.
    I shall also reproduce that as well.

    “Like Kadirgamam in the border of the EP in the South very soon this place will be Sinhaliced”

    My dear friend the sinhala people do worship Hindu Gods,our form of buddhism has an element of Hindu influence. Doe the presence of Nagadeepa make the North the traditional homeland of the sinhalas?

      The sufferings of Tamils are always the political capital of the Tamil parties. So, they always create some problem to arouse the sinhala criminal elements.

      The Tamil parties if they are really concerned about the welfare of the Tamil masses, they must have the details of the Tamil people killed.

      Alas! They dont have such things, because their political capital is achieved. “Sinhalese killed Tamils” is enough for them for few decades. That is the modus oparandi of the Tamil politics. UNP always support it because they also think killing few Tamils is good enough for them too to fool the Sinhalese. But UNP and Tamil parties are good bed fellows. Even LTTE got help and favors from UNP directly and indirectly.

      UNP and Tamil parties always want a pro-WHITE Christian rule.

      So, Sinhalese should be careful about the Tamil parties and their balkings.

      Now the BBS is financed by Nordics. The same guys financed the LTTE also!

      Muslism are also Tamil speakers. When Pakistanis like Badi Uddin mohamed, razik fareed at the leadership of Muslims, they wanted the Tamil speaking Muslims to be separated from Tamil speaking hindus. So, the Muslim separation was supported by Sinhalese for some political benefits. Now BBS is attacking Muslims after getting dollars from the Nordics.

      I hope the Nordics have problems with Muslim in their countries. Nordic countries imported Muslims from Pakistan few decades ago. Now they became headache for them. SL Muslim did not have problems with the other communities for a long time but the Petro dollars creates some problems in Sri lanka.

        When did you come out of Mental Hospital because it looks like it has not been fixed properly. Still a few loose nuts.

    Kettikaran,

    Here I am reproducing an article which I produced earlier.

    There is clearly no justification for once racial group claiming proprietary , exclusive rights over the others within boundaries set artificially by the British merely because there are more members of that group over the others. If there is any validity in such contention it would follow with even greater force from the same principle, since there is and always has been within the natural borders of Sri Lanka, am overwhelming preponderance of Sinhalese, the entirety of Sri Lanka is the homeland of the Sinhalese.
    Whilst Tamils are an overwhelming majority in the North the same can not be said about the Eastern Province. Muslims and the Sinhalese together constitute about 64% of the eastern Province.
    Although the Sinhalese are about 25 % of Eastern Province, the Tamils and the Muslim settlements are largely confined to the coastal areas (Particulary in Ampara and Trincomalee) which are relatively thickly populated compared to the sparsely populated Sinhalese villages which are spread over a huge area.
    Thus of the 22 assistant government agents divisions in the Trinco and Ampara districts the Sinhalese constitute the overwhelming majority in in 10 namely, Padavi Siripura,Gomarankadawela,Kantalai, Moraweva and Seruvila in the Trincomalee district and wevgam pattu ,panama pattu and bintennepattu in Ampara district whilst the Tamils constitute majority only in Trincomalee town and Tirikkovil in Amara .
    Thus the Sinhalese constitute the overwhelming majority in about 60% of Trincomalee district and 78% of Ampara district.

    Besides you Tamils use the term Tamil speaking to bring the Muslims under you in order to swell your numbers. Muslims have a clear seperate leadership. If and when they have to choose between the Sinhalese and the Tamils , they will clearly pick the Sinhalese.

    Your accusation of colonization is like the whites in south africa (who unjustly occupy 40% of South Africa) accusing the blacks of colonization if they try to move into the so called white areas.

    In Summary

    1) Tamil and muslim settlements are on a stretch of 10 miles from the sea in the east
    2) Sinhalese villages are spread over a far wider area and are 60% of Trinco and 78% of Ampara districts
    3) Muslims can not be brought under the Tamil speaking label to swell your Tamil numbers

    Historical facts nor shear numbers justify inclusion of Eastern Province as part of the traditional Tamil homeland

      Ravi Perera:

      For your information the boundaries were not set by British but in fact dismantled by first Portugese, Dutch and then the British.

      Before the above three colonised Sri Lanka there were separate Tamil and Sinhalese Kingdom so dont confuse.
