The Woodpecker And The Banana Trunk

By Ruvan Jayamanne

There is a Sinhala proverb that says: “the woodpecker happily pecks away at trunk after trunk, but the day it pecks at the banana trunk it’s beak is stuck”. The reference is to the copiously threaded nature of the trunk of the banana that can entangle any object that pierces it, potentially suffocating the intruder, in this case the woodpecker.

It increasingly appears that in wangling the hosting of the CHOGM, the Rajapaksa regime has been pecking at a banana trunk.

Mahinda RThe regime has so far stridently proclaimed its self-righteousness, and blamed “anti-Sri Lankan” elements for its international woes. By wangling the CHOGM it hoped to whitewash itself and get world attention; to showcase the Rajapaksa glory with its highways, ports, airports and other constructions; to cover up its misdeeds that constitute a long list from corruption and nepotism to ill governance and the denial of the rule of law; to get political mileage for continued ill governance and re-election; and to attract foreign investment worth an estimated US$ two billion.

Rather than any conceivable content of the Commonwealth conference, what has been increasingly gaining world attention are the misdeeds of the regime, most conspicuously war crimes, human rights violations and ill governance. Starting with the boycott by the Canadian prime minister and foreign minister, the regime’s expectations are dwindling by the day. The severest blow is that of the boycott by the Indian prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh, the leader of the nation most important for Sri Lanka and the Commonwealth. In addition, five Caribbean countries are joining the boycott, and the British prime minister David Cameron is expected to take up the demand for an international investigation into the alleged war crimes.

Contrary to the dreams of the Rajapaksa regime, the world media will be focused on the failings and crimes of the host rather than any substantial proceedings.

The local media, firmly in the regime’s grip, will sing its praises and portray Rajapaksa as a world leader.  For the negative publicity it is bound to get, the regime and its agents will blame the west, the Tamil diaspora and the NGOs.

    I agree. MR wanted to come under spot light and he is the leader of Chogm. His dream is full filled. MR & GR think SL is like US and can get away with all the war crimes and want to challenge western countries with Chinese back up. This is utter absurd. China is like a parasite it will suck all the sl resources and we will be slaves to China.

      When MR goes to the Hague, will he have any special privileges?

      Gota, Mahinda, Sarath and his generals can have a cosy second life: It is a prison like no other I hear. I suppose premium whiskey can be obtained for a price.

      How many visitors are allowed monthly? I would like to have a word with them as to why they did all these massacres, or they regret it only now

        Thiru, MR rescued the nation from 30 years of LTTE terrorism and even the TNA is now able to visit the North. However, when those who supported LTTE terrorism from within and abroad goes to the Hague, they could enjoy the comforts you have mentioned. Good luck.

    The otherwise clueless regime is oblivious this CHOGM zombie Jamboree will bring more harm to them and the country than good. Starting now
    the despotic regime will be under the microscope of the world press – with hundreds of millions of readers learning of their sadistic War Crimes. When Channel 4 and other major networks hit the screens the Brothers will see stars. When Indian PM Dr. MMS refused to get trapped into a photo-op with Mahinda Rajapakse at UNO/NYC recently, it should have been clear to our man the Indian PM will give the Jamboree an embarrassing miss. All MR wanted was a few photos of shaking hands with Dr. MMS to deceive those at home everything is hunky-dory with him and Delhi. The next step will be to hit back at Delhi after November 20. The inept Brothers must realise the Indians hold the cards. If the regime goes out of step harming Indian Tamils and other Tamils here as tit-for-tat India can be expected to go all out to help tighten the Hague/ICJ noose.

    David Cameron and William Hague did not have to come here “to be tough on Mahinda Rajapakse” They could have done that from London – if they wanted to. This whole gig, regretably, will be a tremendous embarrassment to Prince Charles and Lady Camila. The Rajapakses and
    the discredited Kamlesh Sharma have divided the Commonwealth – for personal gain.

    The benefits to the country from CHOGM will be no more than what we gained from that unnecessary wastage of NAM 1976 – when Mrs. B was shown the door so shockingly.

    There is also a possiblity of Rajapakse not ending up as the Head of the Commonwealth for the next two years. At least this matter will get raised as an issue!

        It is no victory for Tamils who are still counting the tens of thousands of dead, disappeared, raped and being murdered, raped and disapperaing in their land.

        It’s in fact a victory for all peace loving Sinhalese as a beginning to get rid of their tyrant.

    This is a fair speculation by Ruvan.
    But MR and his buddies, as I understand, decide the agenda, choreograph the entertainment, appoints who takes the official pictures, and even decide the menu.
    The agenda includes the topics for discussion and even the questions to be asked, and who will ask the questions.
    Foreign media (and undesirable local scum) will be cocooned away from the action and will be prevented from spoiling the party.
    All this is like my favourite dream; batting to my own bowling!

    CHOGM is the beginning of the fall of the MR regime. MR’s ill-advisers, including the astrological bluff Sumanadasa, and yes-men around him have already led MR along the garden path. MR’s fall after the conclusion of the CHOGM is inevitable and it will be a dramatic fall, type of which no one anticipates. All the good work he did to rid this country of terrorism will be forgotten and history will record him as a disgrace to this country.

      See, India decided not to join.

      That is a good sign actually. As Desmond tutu had described, being away from the upcoming summit can help the minority issue in the country run by an alleged war criminal.

      Uk and the other countries have got lot to discuss in terms of how the MR regime performed on improvement of HR since the 2ND UN resolution was imposed. As we the dissidents see it, nothing like improved, but worsened it to day to another.

      No serious concerns about reenforcement of rule of order. Nor have they allowed crime investigations of any sort to be carried out in an impartial manner. If they did one of these, they could have added positive feedbacks to the the questions awaiting in the summit. I have no doubt,

      MAN IS CAUGHT IN THE ACT.

      There will be no CW chaimanship for him as expected, they the leaders have to make new decisions in that regard before ending the summit.
      Who would allow alleged war crminal to lead CW nations for the next 2 years?

    A point of interest and a request for clarification.
    I believe the bird referred to, in the Sinhala folk tale, as pecking at the trunk of the plantain tree was a “Kottoruwa” not a “Ke-rella.” The former is a barbet and the latter is the woodpecker.

      “Kottoruva Gahin Gahata Kota Kota yanava,

      Kottoruva is the Sinhala word for the Brown headed Barbet, not a Woodpecker.

    Cameron has to satisfy his version of a “strong stand” for which he will
    bargain a time-limited Chairmanship until all LLRC recommendations are fulfilled before March 2014, and MR will accept it,as he has only to get Crowned for local needs. Enhancing the Dynasty is more valued than going to Hauge – which the Chinese will look after.

    A stupid and one sided article as often favoured by the CT.

    You will clearly see that the antagonism is coming from the countries that depend on the Tamil diaspora vote and who are subject to their intensive and desperate lobbying. CHOGAM is about the commonwealth and NOT about Sri Lanka. This country is only a vessel that holds the event and is in no way party to the event itself, except the acceptance of the chair at the end.

    Frustration can be a had pill to swallow for the LTTE rump that stand toothless in real terms – Prabha is dead, and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

    I disagree with all the detractors.

    Even getting to host CHOGM in Sri Lanka is a great achievement. I think CHOGM is good for Sri Lanka. No matter what the outcome is, in the long run it is good for the country. And whether you like it or not, it is going to bolster the government as it should do.

    Boycotting CHOGM is counterproductive. It is better to engage the Sri Lankan leadership in closer ties with countries with strong human rights values. If you isolate Sri Lanka the leadership can move towards a more authoritarian rule (not that it is not the best rule when it comes to ruling an utterly unruly and divisive people like the Sri Lankans).

    War crimes – well I have said enough on this matter. War is a crime and punishing people for crimes within crimes is meaningless. The main intent in war is to kill the enemy. There is no room for niceties. In war hatred of the enemy is on the ascendancy. When routing the enemy all those who stand on the way will be bulldozed. It is the nature of war that most who die or maimed are the innocents who get caught up in the fray. Sad but true. Holding war crimes tribunals has not stopped war.

    Our focus should be to find ways and means to prevent war not find ways and means to scapegoat after engaging in war. All Sri Lankans are complicit in the devastation that descended on our country since independence. We have no one to blame but ourselves for letting the opportunistic politicians to drag us by our divisive noses.

      Well. I searched in the internet to find arguments favouring that war is a crime. What I found was that there had been, there are and there will be wars without the intent to “kill the enemy”. In most of the recent wars, the intent has been to take control of or the indirect ownership of a valuable natural resource or a market or a country. Chasing away the “trustees” by overt or covert means have been the strategy in most cases. Once the objective is achieved, conspirators come in like hawks enjoying the carcasses left over by the predators.

      There are also wars fought without conventional weapons. The weapons used are heroin, marijuana etc. Testing medicines on selected innocent communities in the pretext of medical aid, testing technologies and techniques in the pretext of development assistance and introducing invasive or alien plants in the pretext of reforestation or agriculture development can be cited as wars without the intent to kill the enemy.

      The point is, there is no great achievement in hosting CHOGM. Even Nigeria and Uganda has hosted it long before us.

      The first CHOGM was held in 1971, and there have been twenty-one held in total: They are held once every two years, although this pattern has twice been interrupted. They are held around the Commonwealth, rotating by invitation amongst its members.

      1)Even getting to host the CHOGM in Sinhala Lanka is a Great Achieve when you have people like the Criminal Sharma Aiding and Abetting another Criminal. The Tamils have been victims of Circumstances and all this is about to change and MR along with Sharma will have their day in Court come March 2014.

      2)Boycotting CHOGM is counterproductive. It is better to engage the Sri Lankan leadership in closer ties with countries with strong human rights values.

      ***By your own admission from the above other countries have stronger Human Rights Record. Engaging Sri Lanka is the same as engaging Hitler which amounts to Appeasement.

      3) War crimes – well I have said enough on this matter. War is a crime and punishing people for crimes within crimes is meaningless. The main intent in war is to kill the enemy. There is no room for niceties. In war hatred of the enemy is on the ascendancy.

      You haven’t said enough but you will have your chance at the Hague to say more.

      You really are STUPID and let me explain something to you.

      ***War to defend your country from a Foreign Aggression is justifiable.
      ***But War against your own people ( as happened in Sinhala Lanka ) who were fighting 64 years of Sinhalese TYRANNY is a CRIME.

      4) Holding war crimes tribunals has not stopped war.

      No mate it has certainly stopped the War in Serbia.

      5) Our focus should be to find ways and means to prevent war not find ways and means to scapegoat after engaging in war.

      I reluctantly agree with you on the above and it is up to you lot to prevent the War by treating the Tamils as equals and by Granting them SELF DETERMINATION. But you wont do it willingly so we have to get it with outside help( Tamil Nadu)

    “War is a crime and punishing people for crimes within crimes is meaningless.”

    I agree with not punishing as civil war will not be a recurring theme in srilanka.Hopefully it will be a one off event.So punitive action war crimes as a deterrent may not be necessary as in other normal criminal cases where punishment is meted out in order to send the message to criminals what behaviour will be tolerated and what will not.

    However i don’t know how the international community will view that because they may consider that punishment is necessary as a deterrent to other governments not to commit war crimes.In a srilankan context punishment is not necessary and we should move on but in an international context i don’t know.That is in the hands of the UN.

    What i don’t agree with is the cover up by our government of the war crimes.The truth should be told for the sake of the victims and their families and friends as in a truth and reconciliation commission in south africa and rwanda.This is essential for the healing process and reconciliation otherwise the bitterness and hostility will continue and we a small country can ill afford disunity in our peoples.

    If you look at rwanda the president there is a farsighted man and he is rapidly making that country into one that is the best in africa.

        As I said before, the paradox is that ultimately, the Sinhala will need the help of the Tamil Diaspora and indeed the Channel 4 to oust this regime. It will hasten if only the Tamil Diaspora were to abandon the LTTE flags. The opposition must unite and rescue the country from these vultures.

        The problems is how to counter the race card. The Sinhala Buddhist race card wins every time. I strongly believe that the war crimes and crimes against humanity are the only vehicles that will bring down this regime.

    The trouble with political leaders like MR is that they soon lose a sense of proportion, and their egos get progressively bigger. The poor fellow cannot travel to the UK or the US without encountering hostile demonstrations and those countries politely telling him that they cannot assure his security. But at home the man is a ‘raja’ and no doubt he felt that hosting the CHOGM will be for him a great victory. And for the doubtful honour of hosting the event MR has no doubt, behind the scenes, made any number of concessions to the west. The financial cost of hosting the conference is huge – something Sri Lanka can ill afford; All this for the greater glory of MR. Alas, he will soon discover that the CHOGM 2013 will bring him not so much honour but even more criticism and further international isolation.

      For this glory, poor masses have to suffer for their supper. In the post summit sessions, they would not even be able to afford one single meal. All these huge sums would work on them than anyone else.. is not that so ?
      Western govt in Europe plan to save money in every means to allow their public not to face much higher inflations. Why the bugger at all decided to purchase unaffordable fleet of sophisticated vehicles rather than using already available ones in the country – all these and previous lamborghini purchase would all work together pushing the poor man much deeper. This is the reason why that one of the good politician of the current day – Dr. Harsha de Silva repeatedly argued in parliament lately (on 15.10.2013). If any sane person would have listened to his questions, they would easily realize, where the nation has been drawn to this day.

    The war crimes charge would not have arisen, or been entirely ineffective, had Rajapaksa been magnanimous in victory, and, in his “victory speech” given a sincere promise to address the Tamil grievances that led to the war in the first place, and proceeded to carry out that promise as his first post war act. Instead he wallowed in an ugly spree of triumphalism and squandered the goodwill of the Tamils including a substantial section of the diaspora, the right thinking and patriotic citizens of other communities, and the international community. He chose to assume that the country and the world are fools to believe in a “humanitarian operation” and “welfare villages”. He failed to put into effect his own “home grown solution” outlined in the LLRC report. .

    Instead, all of Rajapaksa’s post war acts have amounted only to two related things: (1) personal glory, aggrandizement, and building a dynasty, and (2) gradually dismantling the country’s well established democracy. He is not likely to reverse this path despite the certainly of it leading to the country’s economic and political ruin including the certainty of the next generation rising in rebellion. Shorter term, a good possibility exists of his electoral defeat, or re-election with a much reduced majority. In the unlikely even that he reforms himself and becomes a truly democratic leader willing to listen to intelligent opinion, he can still hope to become a leader of historical proportions. He even has a good window of opportunity in the formation of the new NPC, and the conciliatory gestures of chief minister Wigneshvaran.

      “(2) gradually dismantling the country’s well established democracy”

      I would say, not gradually, drastically eroding all values that we enjoyed in the country 3 decades ago for example. Then the country, nation were poor, but we respected each other well, we had a dignified life though we the middle class lacked many of the materials that we enjoy by now. But latter was also common to industrialized nations.
      Some believe it is global trend that young generations lack the respect towards their elders. Nevertheless, I still believe if we could build up a lawful society, that would lead us to progress. No high tech or road constructions would be able to fill up that GAP. War torn folks like ours may need more professional assistance to work for the betterment of the life – in the post war episodes. So long the rulers would not focus on that, would not invest on that, there will be no real progress seen in our society specially towards achieving sustainable peace.

    When the Non Aligned Conference was held in Sri Lanka by Mrs.Sirimavo Bandaranayke, the UNP at that time was bashing her for the extravagance. But after many years the people of the country realized how it benefitted Sri Lanka. Similarly, the pen of the writer of this article seems to be with full of venom, who enjoys bashing the Government and Sri Lanka in support of his UNP/JVP masters,so that he could bring Sri Lanka to disrepute, during CHOGM. It is good to identify these traitors.

      But what matters is the way how they do it today.

      Did we need to spend that collosal sums to purchase luxary vehicles ?
      Being in a situation, that common man is struggeling for his or her 3 meals ?
      Who would bear the burden in the months to come if not the poor of the poor ones in the country ?

      Besides, did not we the nation have enough vehicles to use for these two days ?
      It is reported, that some ministers use vehicles unnecessarily. So, if they had a proper management, they could better save the funds in that way. Should we just dance to same manner as the affordable rich nations do so.
      Why to wash the carpeted rds with shampoos or re plant grass where nobody would come to see ? That are just wastages. These are the reality. In coming days, daily essentials would be made very expensive to fill up all these financial gaps. Then bread eaters would have to see… dewiyange pihitai..

      Mati harakaa who governs all these should pay close attention to all these. Just for a maxmmum 3 day conference they make it a big issue.

    The Rajapakse CV reads as follows.

    THUG, CRIMINAL, LOOTER, BRIBER, BEGGAR.

    In any other civilised a World a man with the above credentials would have been cast aside as he has brought shame on an Nation. But in Sinhala Lanka he is able to survive but also entrench his position for two reasons.

    1) The Sinhalese are born Racists.
    2) He has been aided and abetted to stay in power by the Traitor India under the current Regime not only by taking Bribes to fill their pocket but also to hide their part in the War Crime.

    This is all about to change when we have a Change at the top next year. One can already see the change in the Indian attitude by the PM deciding not to attend the CHOGM despite the weak man Peiris going to Delhi to beg him to come.
    Despite all the talk of the Chinese involvement India has the Luxury of letting Sri Lanka to Pawn her future to the Chinese because India knows that she can bring all this to an end by sending a Couple of Warships to Dock in Colombo if she finds her security is threatened.
    This happened when two Chinese Submarines were spotted near the Sri Lankan Coast to spy on India .
