Vellahlas First Crushed Tamil Rivals For Jobs & Power

The status and power of the Vellahlas took a dramatic turn with the coming of the Dutch. The Vellahlas were elevated officially by a foreign power to the top of the caste hierarchy when the Dutch recognised them as the ruling caste of Jaffna. This status was officially confirmed in the Tesawalamai (1707) — the legal Bible of the Tamils of Jaffna drafted initially by the Dutch colonialists as guide for good governance. The Dutch were the first to codify the laws and customs of Jaffna and when they drafted the Tesawalamai (desa = land + walamai = customs and laws) it was handed to the twelve Vellahla Mudliyars who, after examining it, endorsed it as the valid laws and customs of the land. Tesawalamai not only reinforced the rigid Saivite caste system enthroning the Vellahlas at the top but also endorsed slavery in Jaffna. As laid down in the Tesawalamai those born into the Koviar, Pallar, Chandar and Nallavar castes were condemned as slaves from birth and the Vellahlas were their masters with powers of life and, sometimes (unofficially), death, over them.

With the power of being recognised legally as the ruling caste by the colonial masters, the Vellahlas did not hesitate to act ruthlessly and unrelentingly to maintain their supremacy. The Vellahlas fought the oppressed non-Vellahla Tamils of Jaffna tooth and nail, from the womb to the tomb, to prevent any challenges to their power and prestige. The primary political objective of the Vellahlas was to keep the low-castes apart as untouchables who would pollute their purity if the latter were treated as their equals, Living above the rest to maintain their purity was their mark of superiority as defined in Saivism. Though battles to preserve casteist purity were fought ceaselessly as a sacred principle of their religion, Vellahlaism was, in essence, a violent political force operating from feudal times to maintain their supremacy at any cost. They fought the oppressed Tamils in every domain to keep them down as a species unfit for human contact or relationships, except as slaves, or inferior subjects. Whenever religious and secular laws of the Vellahlas were threatened they never failed to suppress the oppressed non-Vellahlas under their fascist jackboots. Vellahla thugs were the unofficial police force that maintained Vellahla law and order in the peninsula.

To the oppressed non-Vellahlas, Jaffna was the black hole of inhuman casteism which deprived them of their dignity, self-respect and basic rights like walking in day time. The turumbas, for instance, were allowed to walk only in the nights, just in case their sighting should pollute the purity of the Vellahlas eyes. In their nocturnal peregrinations the turumbas were forced to cry out loud saying : “The turumbas are coming!” as a warning to the Vellahlas to keep them out of sight. Casteist Jaffna was bizarre as a Kafkesque nightmare.

In the post-Tesawalamai period, Vellahlaism turned out to be more than a ritualistic caste. It turned into an iron-fisted fascist force which reduced the oppressed non-Vellahlas to a subhuman species. When the draft of the Tesawalamai was presented to the twelve Vellahla Mudliyars for their comments they endorsed everything and argued only for the tightening of the laws to give more powers to the Vellahla masters over their Tamil slaves. Under the Dutch, Vellahlaism emerged as an overwhelming political force with power to control key existential aspects of Tamil society. Saivism and Tesawalamai worked together from the religious and secular ends to keep the low-castes caged tightly inside a socio-political straight jacket from which the low-castes had no escape. On the one hand, Saivism had anointed the Vellahlas as the highest in the caste hierarchy under the laws of God. And, on the other, Tesawalamai confirmed them as the highest authority under the laws of man. The low-castes could not appeal either to God or to man for their salvation.

Armed with the authority of the religious and secular laws, the Vellahla commanded the highest prestige and power in Tamil society. Keeping the non-Vellahla Tamils subjugated to the superior will of the Vellahlas has been the primary objective of Vellahla-driven Northern political agenda. The Vellahlas fought the outcasts to keep them out of (a) their pure water in wells – they even dropped faeces into the wells of the low-castes, (b) their schools which were burnt if the low-castes were admitted, (c) their churches where there were separate pews for the low-castes, (d) seats in public places, (e) their Hindu kovils, and, last but not the least, (f) even burial grounds. In some instances, the low-caste Tamils were punished by the Vellahla thugs for wearing banned clothes or jewellery – symbols that announced the supremacy of the Vellahlas,

Tesawalamai legalised the abject misery of the Tamil slaves and the oppressed Tamil castes. Slavery was banned under Regulation 20 of 1844, Abolition of Slavery Ordinance. However, Dr. H. W. Tambiah, revealed that “(T)hough slavery was abolished legally many of the depressed classes remained as de facto slaves of their masters for economic reasons.” (p.85 – The Laws and Customs of the Tamils of Jaffna, published by Women’s Education and Research Centre.) The hawk-eyed Vellahlas were ever vigilant and fought in religious, social, political and legal fronts to retain their Vellahla power, privileges and prestige. Dr. Tambiah cites a legal battle waged by the Vellahlas to prevent the low-castes from burying their dead according to Hindu rites, namely, the beating of tom-toms, which the Vellahlas claimed to be their exclusive right. Vellahla thugs attacked the funeral procession. They were found guilty of unlawful assembly. They appealed and the Vellahla claim to use force in defence of their traditional rights was defended by no less a dignitary than Sir. Ponnambalam Ramanathan.

Commenting on this criminal and civil case Dr. Tambiah wrote : “In Queen vs. Ambalavanar, a man of one caste wish to bury his wife according to certain ceremonies which the neighbours of a difference caste thought were only applicable to them. The neighbours assembled together so as to form an unlawful assembly. They were convicted of the charges of unlawful assembly, and they appealed. The late Sir. Ponnambalam Ramanathan contended in appeal that the accused had the right to act in the way they did, in view of section 8 of Regulation No. 18 of 1806. It was not brought to the notice of the Court that this Regulation had been repealed by Regulation 20 of 1844.”

In a stinging judgment His Lordship Burnside, CJ., said : “In the present, it might be sufficient to ask what does this mean? Does it really mean that by the laws of this country one of Her Majesty’s subjects could be prevented from honouring the dead in a particular way; because some other persons or a body of people said they had the exclusive privilege of of doing so? But suppose it is conceded that it is the law, and that the Supreme Court should be moved for a writ of injunction to prevent a woman from being carried to the grave to the sound of tom-tom, does it follow that body of men may assemble themselves together, and by show of force and the terror of the other subjects of the Queen enforce their own own edit to that effect against the party who favoured the tom-tom. I apprehend not. I make bold to hold that the Malabar inhabitants of the Province of Jaffnapatam…. cannot take the law into this own hands, and seen to administer it after the fashion of Judge Lynch.” (Ibid – pp 85-86).

The oppressive and cruel politics of the Vellahlas cast a dark shadow across the whole of the peninsula throughout the feudal, colonial and even during the post-colonial period until the rise of Velupillai Prabhakaran. Their over-determining role that spilled over from the neck of Jaffna into the rest of the south in the post-independent period cannot be ignored. Dr. Tambiah summed it up when he wrote that “the student of the social sciences will not understand the structure of Tamil Society unless he has studied the law of slavery and the caste system prevailing in Jaffna. Even a student of law will not understand the legal institutions and the law applicable to the Tamils in its proper setting unless there is a discussion of this subject.” (Ibid – p. 74).

Our half-baked social scientists, most of whom were one-eyed Jacks and Janes, picked on stray anti-Tamil comments – comments only, mark you, — of Anagarika Dharmapala and A. E. Goonesinha, the first labour leader, to point an accusing finger at the Sinhala-Buddhist south for the north-south conflict without giving equal weightage to the more vicious and corrosive internal dynamics of peninsular politics which not only systematically oppressed the non-Vellahla Tamils on a mass scale for centuries but also exacerbated the north-south relations by dragging fascist casteism into extreme racism. Blaming the Sinhala-Buddhist south was a deliberate ploy to divert attention from the crimes committed by the Vellahla leadership against the Tamils. Any attempt to focus on the Vellahla crimes would take away the sting from their accusations of “discrimination” by “the Sinhala governments”. Their usual litany of complaints blaming “the Sinhala governments” gave the licence for the Vellahla leadership to get away with discriminating, persecuting and killing their own people on a mass scale with impunity.

Anyway, assuming that there is some substance in finger-pointing at the Sinhala-Buddhists, consider how it compares with cruel crimes committed against the Tamils by the Vellahla leadership. Historical records prove that the mass scale crimes against the Tamils were committed by the Tamil leadership during feudal, colonial and post-colonial times, and not by the Sinhalese. The oppression, persecution and killing of Tamils stand out as crimes against humanity committed exclusively by the Vellahla supremacists to protect and preserve their power and privileges. In the post-colonial period it was the Vellahla proxy, Velupillai Prabhakaran, that killed more Tamils than all the others put together, according to S. C. Chandrahasan, son of S. J. V. Chelvanayakam, and V. Anandasangaree, leader of Tamil United Liberation Front. The issue of discrimination by “the Sinhala governments”, and even sporadic mob violence against the Tamils, bears no comparison to what the oppressed Tamils have endured during the better part of their history by the Tamil leadership. It should also be emphasised that the Sinhalese had never oppressed the Tamils, or any other community, like the way the Tamils were persecuted, oppressed and even killed by the Vellahla leadership and their proxy, Prabhakaran. The caste discrimination imposed by the Vellahlas on their own people denied the Tamils of their basic human rights – something which the Sinhalese never did. Nor does any social scientist have any evidence to prove that the Sinhalese have committed crimes against the Tamils people on the scale of Vellahlas, or their proxy Velupillai Prabhakaran.

All the accusations against the Sinhalese were confined to the post-Donoughmore period which began in 1930. But our social scientists deliberately refused to look over the cadjan curtain into the systemic discrimination and cruel oppression built into “the Tamil Society” from feudal times, or even from the time Tesawalamai was officially codified in 1707. On any historical or social scale no one has surpassed the colossal oppression and misery imposed on the Tamil people by their Vellahla leadership. What the Tamils have done to the Tamils throughout their history has made Jaffna the hell-hole of Pol Potist tyranny. Ironically, in a total distortion of historical realities, it is the Sinhalese who are accused of discriminating against the Tamils – an issue that will be dealt with later.

This one-eyed view of post-independent history has contributed in large measure for the distortion and the exacerbation of the north-south relations. As stated by Dr. Tambiah national politics cannot be understood without a clear grasp of “the structure of Tamil Society”. But the discourse on this subject so far has not taken into consideration “the proper setting of the Tamils”, or the internal dynamics of peninsular politics, that incrementally pushed the Tamil agenda to mono-ethnic extremism. By and large, the references to the role of the Tamils have been superficial or negligible in comparison to the overwhelming mass of literature that had poured out of the pro-Tamil lobby to demonise the Sinhala-Buddhists. The finger-pointing would have had some justification if the Sinhalese had committed within the last 60-odd years of its rule even a fraction of what the Vellahla leadership had committed against the oppressed Tamils from feudal and colonial times. Comparing feudal and colonial centuries of Vellahla oppression of Tamils to 60-odd years of what they call “the Sinhala governments” is like comparing the mini-dagobas of Kantadorai in Jaffna to Jetawanaramaya – the third tallest structure of the ancient world next to the Pyramids of Giza.

To understand the overpowering political role of the Vellahlas in regional and national politics it is necessary to go to the Dutch records. Their records give a stunning insight into the Vellahla politics, their aggressive tendencies to crush their rivals, with violence, if necessary, and their craving to grab power and privileges at any cost. The Vellahlas, ensconced in seats of power from the time of Dutch occupation, were not willing to co-exist with the other Tamil castes or communities, if and when they felt threatened. Both as a caste or as a class they pursued their politics aggressively. Historian S. Arasaratnam wrote : “The Vellahlas never gave up heir ascendancy has been carried into the modern democratic system by their numerical preponderance.

“The Vellahlas were thus the key caste in the Tamil social system. They dominated the villages and ran its affairs. The numerous other castes served the Vellahlas “ ( p. 110 – Ceylon, Prentice- Hall Inc. 1964).

The rise of the Vellahlas as the most dynamic and over-determining force in Sri Lankan politics has neither been studied nor emphasised by our social scientists. This is a force that has not been factored into historical or political analyses. This has been the hidden factor in national politics. The Vellahlas have been the primary political force that overtook all other political forces, including the Marxists, and captured the centre stage of national politics Volumes have been produced without any reference to this critical factor that determined the course of post-independent history. The Vellahlas emerged as a dominant, if not the dominant, political force in the post-independent period. Like in India, caste politics played a key role in the Sri Lankan political landscape. But no other caste rose to power, subjugating all other castes, to dominate regional and national politics as the Vellahlas. This is the unique characteristic of the Vellahlas who fought only for the Vellahlas. Though they lived among the Tamils they prevailed as a separate political entity from the Tamils at the grassroots. They lived like the yolk and the white in the egg – two separate entities inside one shell. Any discourse on Sri Lankan politics without the Vellahlas is like talking about Hamlet without the Prince. In Gramscian / Machiavellian terms they can be classified as a demonic “Modern Prince” riding high on the ideology of mono-ethnic extremism.

To understand the Vellahlas it is necessary to go back to the Dutch period when they rose as an inveterate and aggressive political force. What is not discussed in the known literature is the first aggressive attack launched by the Vellahlas to crush their rival caste, Madapallis, competing with them for a job in the Dutch administration. In hindsight it can be viewed as a landmark event – a precursor to the aggressive politics of the post-independent period. The revolt of the Vellahlas against the Dutch was to crush their rival caste, the Madapallis, who were seen as a threat to the privileged position they held in the Dutch administration.

Occupying channels of direct access to the colonial masters was essential for them to consolidate and promote Vellahlas interests. Their attempt to grab power defeating the rival caste is recorded faithfully, in graphic details, by Commandeur of Jaffna, Hendri Zwaardecoon. It is the Dutch who first recognised and recorded the Machiavellian tactics of the Vellahlas to eliminate their rivals. His report describes and explains the Vellahla obsession with power and the drive to grab jobs and all state advantages for themselves. The politics of the time was dominated by caste rivalry to obtain jobs in the Dutch administration. Handling caste rivalry presented a knotty problem for the Dutch rulers. For instance, the Dutch Governor Van Rhee wrote in his Memoirs : “ I think it is necessary to state that a bitter and irreconcilable hatred exists between the people of Ballala and of the Madapalli castes. It has therefore, always been the rule in Jaffnapatanam not to elevate one above the other. For this reasons the two Canecappals, or writers of the Commandeur, are taken from two castes so that one may be a Ballala and the other a Madapalli.” (Memoirs of Van Rhee – p. 12).

This caste rivalry should be kept in mind in reading the following report of Commandeur Zwaardecoon which speaks volumes about the Vellahlas and their aggressive casteist politics:

“The tax collectors and Majoraals (minor village officials) are native officers appointed by the Company to demand and collect the poll tax, land rent, tithes, and the Officie and Adigary rates…..In the year 1690 a change was made in the appointment of the Collectors and Majoraals. Up to that time all these and many Cannecappuls, Arachchies, and collectors belonged to one caste, viz, that of the Bellales, being farmers or peasants. The principal of these being to the family of Don Philip Sangerepulle, from Cannengray, a native of evil repute; so much so, that His Excellency the Extraordinary Councillor of India, Laurens Pyl, who was at the time governor of Ceylon, issued an order on June 16, 1687, by which Commandeur Cornelis van der Duyn and his Council were instructed to have the said Don Philip and several of his followers and accomplices put in chains and sent to Colombo. He succeeded, however, in concealing himself and eventually fled to Nagapatam, where he managed to influence the merchant Babba Porboe to such an extent that through his aid he obtained during the years 1689 and 1690 all the advantages he desired for his caste and for his followers. This went so far as the appointment of even schoolboys as Majoraals and Cayaals from the time they left school. His late Excellency van Mydregt, who had great confidence in the said Babba, was somewhat misled by him, but was informed of the fact by certain private letters from the late Commandeur Blom during His Excellency’s residence at Tutucorin. His Excellency then authorized Mr. Blom on July 4, 1690, to at once make such changes as would be necessary, under the pretext that some of the Majoraals were not provided yet with proper acts of appointment issued by His Excellency. This may also be seen in the answer to some points brought before His Excellency by Mr. Blom on October 20. These replies bear date November 29 following. Finding, however, on my arrival from Batavia, that these appointment were still reserved for the Bellales, through the influences of a certain Moddely Tamby, who had formerly been a betel carrier to Sangerepulle, later on a private servant of Babba Porboe, and last of all Cannecappul to the Commandeur, and another Cannecappul, also of the Bellas caste and a first cousin of the said Sangerepulle, of the name of Don Joan Mandala Nayaga Mudliyar, I brought this difficulty before my Governor His Excellency the Extraordinary Councillor of India, Thomas van Rhee, on my visit to Colombo in the beginning of 1698. He verbally authorized me to make the necessary changes, that so many thousands of people should no longer suffer by the oppression of the Bellales, who are very proud and despise all other castes, and who had become so powerful that they were able not only to worry and harass the poor people, but also prevent them from submitting their complaints to the authorities.

Already in the years 1673 and 1675 orders had been given that the Collectors should be transferred every three years; because by their holding office for many years in the same Province they obtained a certain amount of influence and authority over the inhabitants, which would have enabled them to take advantage of them; and it has always been a rule here not to restrict the appointments to these office to the Bellales. but to employ the Madapallys and other castes as well to serve as a counteracting influence; because by this means the inhabitants were kept in peace and through the jealousy of various castes the ruler was always in a position to know what was going on in the country. All these reasons induced His Excellency Thomas van Rhee to give me leave to bring about the necessary changes which have not been introduced. I appointed the Collector of Waddemoraatje as my Cannecappul in the place of Moddely Tambi, whose place I filled with the new Collector of Maddapally caste, while also a new new Collector was appointed for Timmoraatsche in the place of Don Joan Mandala Nayaga, whom the late Mr. Blom had discharged from his office as Cannecapull of the Gate; because now two Bellales are allowed to hold office in one place. He agreed with me on this point, as may be seen from his report of August 20, 1692. I have further transferred two Collectors in the large Province of Wallegamo, so as to gradually being bout the desired change in the interest of the Company and that of the other castes; but I heard that this small change created so much disturbance and canvassing that I had to leave the matter alone. The Bellales, seeing that they would be shut out from these profitable offices and that they would lose influence they possessed so far, and being the largest in number and the wealthiest of the people, moved heaven and earth to put a stop the carrying into effect of this plan so prejudicial to their interests. With this view they also the Wannia Don Phillip Nellampane and Don Gaspar Ilengenarene Mudloiyar in their conspiracies. The latter two, also Bellales, well aware that they own many elephants to the Company, as stated at the beginning of this Memoir, and knowing that their turn would also come, organized the riots in which the said Moddely Tambi was the principal instrument. He was the man who first appeared as a rebel, he had been injured by a long imprisonment and that this induced him to take revenge, these same two Wannias having been then the first accusers who came to e complaining against this man in the latter part of 1694. Perhaps later on they considered the great assistance they received from his during the time of Babba Porboe in obtaining the various privileges and favours. They also probably understood that it was my intention to diminish the influence of the Bellala caste, and were thus induced to take this course to promote the welfare of their caste. I think that it was also out of their conspiracies that the riots arose from which the Commandement suffered during my absence in the months of May, June and July. I cannot account for them in any way, as I have stated previously when treating of the Wanni. I am obliged to repeat this here, in order that Your Honours may be on your guard and watch the movements, alliances, and association of the Bellales and the Majoraals of the Wanni.; because although I may have persisted in bringing about the desired changes, I preferred to leave the matter alone, seeing how much annoyance this first attempt caused me, and how the obsequious subjects of this Commandement are not only given audience in Colombo, but are also upheld against their local ruler, whose explanation is not only not asked for, but who even prevented from defending the interests of Company at the place he had a right to do….” (Memoirs of Zwaardecoon – pp. 24 – 26.)

Does this battle for government jobs ring a bell? Was not the political platforms of Ponnambalam and Chelvanayakam based on the allegations Tamil government servants losing jobs under “the Sinhala governments”? Was Moddely Tambi the forefather of Ponnambalam and Chelvanayakam?

Watch this space in the Colombo Telegraph for the next revealing episode in the hidden history of Jaffna.

      Mahindapala the genocidal writer indirectly proves the service to the Tamil people rendered by the late National Leader Velupillai Pirabakaran. Without Thalaivar, low caste Tamils would have remained slaves of Vellahlas for next few centuries. Thalaivar and the Freedom Fighters of Tamil Eelam rescued them from their sub human existence. Thalaivar despised castism and put the Vellahlas in their place, they were no more equal any other Tamil citizen of Eelam.

      Now that the Eelam Freedom fighters have entered into a period of inactivity, Vellahlas are raising their ugly castism in Jaffna. Vellahlas are gradually imposing their oppressive customs. Tamils are yet again becoming slaves of Tamils without the protection of freedom fighters of Eelam.
      Low caste Tamils have only one hope if they and their children to live as equal citizens. They should fight and build the Tamil Eelam the National Leader of Tamils envisaged . Only then Tamils will be free.

      What a bad Design

      Don’t blame me or Silvestra for my resurrection from the dead. Don’t you know that this is the season for such things? Silvestra worships me now.

      What a bad Design! If you were in the Efac and not just a bathroom cleaner, you will know that what you said you would have done is impossible or at least quite risky according to hydraulics and biology. It is well known that the female urinary outlet is within a fraction of a centimeter of your most precious organs – the sexual ones. Who ever designed cannot be a good engineer.

      That would have put it within radar range of my teeth because as a female you would have had to do it sitting down close to the intended bulls eye. A dangerous maneuver indeed as far as you are concerned. And a quite pleasant one for me even if you were Tamil, provided you had your personal Sakkilya to clean up your u no vat regularly.

    Exploding Transformers

    Fatima Fuckushima, I left CEB in 1977 and joined another organization. In 1983 I came here to get 10 times the salary that any one in SL would pay me. I am 73 now and still they do not want me to leave.
    We have bigger transformers here some of which are about 40 years old. But none have suffered disastrous explosions. Why? because we maintain them properly.

    IT IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE – JUST HARD WORK AND WILLINGNESS TO TAKE WELL INFORMED RISKS.

    There are 2 types of tap changers, (a) On load tap changers (b) Off load tap changers. The former is more difficult to maintain. The tap changer compartment is separate from the main transformer and the oil is also separate. The reason is that during tap changing (especially on load) there is some sparking and this produces carbon which reduces what is known as the dielectric strength of oil. This is a measure of the ability of the oil to withstand high voltages.

    As I said if you maintain a transformer properly, it will give you trouble free service for even 100 years.

    I give below the tests and precautions in the order of complexity that one has to do.
    1) Regular visual observations for leaks etc.
    2) Monitor winding and oil temperatures to ensure they are within limits.
    3) Ensure that protective alarms work properly.
    4) Drain tank bottom to remove moisture that is ‘breathed in’. Moisture is the worst enemy of oil quality.
    5) Carry out oil dielectric strength testing of both main and tap changer oil.
    6) Carry out transformer oil filtering.
    7) Carry out DGA (Dissolved Gas Analysis).
    8) Annually check all primary and secondary protections for proper operation.

    At Stanley Power Station (Kolonnawa), the Main receiving station of the Colombo city, I as an engineer of only 5 years of experience replenished the tap changer oil of the 132/66 Interbus transformer for the first time. I was encouraged and helped in this by a Tamil technician. The previous engineers were too scared to do it. But then that is another story.

      Back in the 80’s while being involved with 5th Power Plant Nepal / ADB loan Chinese/ UK contractors I happened to meet your electrical engineer minister of Power (Premadasa regime) short guy decent and shy fellow. What I was made to understand was corruption was as high as 10 times the price of a main switch which was out on tender- its like octopus starting from First Cross Street Pettaha.
      As a kid I noticed that Fr Ignatius of St Lucias Col 13 was conducting charity classes for electricians, lathe machine operators etc for 1 person in a family of 10. These fellows turned out to be shining stars of the trade because they were innovative.
      The take overs of schools, establishments, and jealousy of idle Buddhist monks brought about the downfall- they did not mean reviving culture because they were vultures eating off poor.
      Travelling to Jaffna before the war I saw the Austin Somerset A40 in factory condition- necessity mother of invention. It’s not whether one is Sinhala or Tamil but live and let live is all most who have seen the period before Banda would like to see.
      Politicians, Monks, Police and now the armed forces will not allow the country to move forward prosperous and friendly people.

      So once again you are dreaming of a belly dancer called Fatima and like like Murdoch getting vibes even at your age??

        Fatima the Ghost

        Fatima, Actually I was not expecting a belly dancer, of whom we have plenty here who are much more Fuckushimable than you.

        I live alone in a big house. Well, not quite alone but with a ghost whom I have named Fatima. She revealed herself to me a few years back as an apparition standing in the hall when I woke up around 1 AM.

        She was crying and I asked why. She said that she wanted to go out of the house but could not. I said no problem and switched on a cassette of Thun Sutra. In the middle of Maha Mangala Sutta she disappeared.

        Thereafter she appears from time to time and seems to be happy and free now. Even my housekeeper Silvestra has seen her. It was Silvestra who suggested that you can drive away female ghosts by exposing your genitals to it. A technique used in Phillipines. I asked her why not try then, and she said they have to be male genitals, suggesting that I be the hero.

        I tried it after Silvestra left but it has not worked, perhaps due to too old equipment. On the contrary it had the opposite effect. Another ghost appeared in my life. And she has named herself Fatima Fuckushima.

        Ha! Ha!

        By the way, your English is pretty poor. What is wrong? What Madrassa did you attend? What did you learn? Only to move your head back and forth and to hate us?

        Try Karaneeya Metta Sutta for a change.

          I don’t believe in ghost but read books like harry potter for what it is worth and relaxation.

          When ruled for 800 years these ghost stories were the ones the Arabs told the Portuguese when they arrived from a sea voyages to Asia for trade.

              She says, “If a message posted is understood that is the main thing”. That is a coded message saying, “never mind the spelling and grammar you old …. do the SHM to me”.

            Simple Harmonic Motion

            Fatima, you say, “If a message posted is understood that is the main thing on these forums-and anyone who can merely highlight spelling mistakes and highlight grammatical errors needs to get a life”.

            Spelling mistakes? Forget mistakes. I am talking about pure and unadulterated ignorance and the murder of Queen’s English. I think I can teach an above average monkey to write more grammatically than you in a few weeks. It is embarrassing baby. I am not going to take you for parties any sooner even if we tie the knot.

            You know lady, there are more things in life than moving your head back and forth, all the while planning how to kill more infidels. Do you know about SHM (Simple Harmonic Motion)?. I am sure your Madrassa did not teach you that.

            Fatima, baby, there are highly pleasurable modes of SHM that you are unaware of. If we could get together, you leaving that Madrassa, I can show you a few new things. I am 73 but my SHM has improved like my brain still serving the US Navy very well. The Aegis system needs me and I need the Aegis system. Similarly I need to do the SHM with someone at least once a week.

            Of course my faithful maid Silvestra is there but one does not hob nob with servants if one is respectable, which as you know, I am.

            Think about it. OK?

    <Importance of good spelling

    With my death and the subsequent resurrection, I thought of taking a vacation in good old SL. What better time than the Aluth Avurudda for that? With the Yahapalananya it would be a brand new experience for Edwin. I love Vacations but hate packing.

    I was delaying it when Silvestra came in for her daily routine of maiding. Seeing all the mess she exclaimed “Oh.. Mr Edwin. I will help you to puck”

    You see the wrong spelling there. She meant pack but pronounced it as Puck. The Filipino language like Tamil has no a’. But I must stress that the similarity ends there. The former are light skinned, no korala legs and soft to touch while the Tamils are – well, let us stop there. You know what I mean. After all one does not want to say things that would damage North South reconciliation.

    I was taken aback by what Silvestra said because I thought she meant some other word. The conversation went like this:

    E: No Silvestra. I don’t want you to do that.

    S: Why Sir? You think I cannot puck?

    E: No it is not that. We should keep our relationship on a professional level.

    S: OK. If you don’t want me to puck I will get Irene.

    S calls Irene while sobbing, which puzzles E. A lot of chatter in Tagalog goes on and finally Irene arrives.

    S: OK Mr Edwin . I am leaving.

    And she leaves still sobbing.

    E: OK Irene I never thought this is going to happen but let us get on with it. Come let us go to the bed room.

    They go in to the bedroom with Irene having packing in mind and E something different.

    A minute later Irene emerges huffing and puffing and runs away while poor Edwin is sprawled on the bed with an eye blacker than any Jaffna Tamil skin. That is the kind of thing that happens with bad spelling.

    “The Vellahlas fought the outcasts to keep them out of (a) their pure water in wells – they even dropped faeces into the wells of the low-castes, (b) their schools which were burnt if the low-castes were admitted, (c) their churches where there were separate pews for the low-castes, (d) seats in public places, (e) their Hindu kovils, and, last but not the least, (f) even burial grounds. In some instances, the low-caste Tamils were punished by the Vellahla thugs for wearing banned clothes or jewellery – symbols that announced the supremacy of the Vellahlas”

    Shall we keep other things like Silvestra out of this thread and talk about the main topic please?

    The above is a serious allegation by Mahindapala. Vellahlas, who themselves are a low caste compared to Brahmins treating others as sub humans.

    Is this true, partially true or false?

    Can any of the Vellahlas clarify/elaborate on this please?

          EDWIN RODRIGO,
          Uduran kanna rilaw (monkey that plucks off others)

          Its your free education and job (worker in the maintenance department of building) in middle east that has made you looney.

          Vellaha means landlord. Sirima with her land acquisition (25 acres and one extra home) foreign company acquisition brought in enough misery to the people. While she alone had sultanas to bake a Christmas cake.

          You want to be like Mao and take over all land for farming. Till the west opened the gates for trade (WTO 30 years ago) the folk were starving- ration 2 eggs a week for family of 8.
          Iran and the mulla or Russia and Putin.

          you are thinking like a mercenary. Even young Indian Engineers who have worked ME for 5 years have their own construction/ consultancy services and are their employers and they are not all high caste.
          Even south Indians have done this in china recently.

          Its your problem old jingo as we have seen revolutionary idiots like you. With your Portuguese name you could have done wonders there but you have taken yourself into a rut. The way you abused your former professor a genial man was enough to tell us what you are.
          He gave a splendid answer to the question of black holes which we in the UK heard just quite recently- parallel black holes.

                  Dafren Dafren black holes

                  Fatima, as you have said, many Tamils who have fled from Sri Lanka are occupying important positions in Western countries. A Jaffna Tamil scientist working for NASA has recently said “Dafren Dafren galakshis have Dafren Dafren black holes”, which translated from murdered English to Queen’s English reads as “Different galaxies have different black holes.

                  Elaborating further, he names these categories.

                  1-Simple black holes.
                  2-Parallel black holes.
                  3-Back to front black holes.
                  4-Front to front black holes.
                  5-Back to back black holes.
                  6-Back only black holes.
                  7-Front only black holes.
                  8-Black holes which are not black.

                  The common factor here is that they are all holes and all of them are black. Why black, because any light that goes in never comes out. For that matter, not only light but any other thing that goes in never comes out.

            the price to pay for continued casteism is much more than the price to pay for racism.

            So let us start with casteism (past & present) and proceed on to racism. Shall we? Charity starts at home.

                      Go disintegrate or blow yourself up in Syria because your alibi is well known.

        Boru Lankan, you say, “Your other personality Silvestra is more affable. Better if she were the dominant one, poor English skills notwithstanding”.

        Thanks to me her English is better than Fukushima’s.

            “there are 2 million of them there”. But there is one and only one Silvestra Dai Ichi. Numero Uno.

            “Ha ha I am enjoying it keep it up old fellow”. It is all well for you to say keep it up. Keep what up? Fukushima, be specific.

              now you keep on displaying your ignorance.

              Philippines is a former Spanish colony.- 4 ships sent out by roman emperor Carlos 1/Charles who retired at a young age of 41.

              specific- stop sitting on your brains like grandma Ramona Fernando.

              As Lankan says this maid of yours is fiction.

              I am in the UK at present could you tell me where in the ME you are??
              Why are you afraid??

    I can see the cheesy scowling face of the Pusari of the Antipodes as he plans his next assault on the moist posteriors of his many ‘readers’.

    AND, all, happily, from very very far away.

    What a waste of brilliant journalistic talent and political knowledge
    tainted by clear ethnic prejudice. While the many shortcomings in the decades past in the unjust treatment of the lower castes by the Vellala and the higher castes are not denied the fact is the benefits of education, a growing sense of justice universally, the modern commercial and accommodating world are all contributing to the certain albeit gradual removal of this scourge from the body politic and scarred history of Jaffna.

    Tamil Society is fighting back. Policeman DIG R. Sunderalingam and the late Peking-aligned Communist leader Shanmugathasan, both from the Vellalla castes, are just two of the thousands of Jaffna Tamils trying to eradicate this abscess within their culturally-rich Jaffna Tamil society.

    BTW, the scourge of casteism has certainly not spared Sinhala society.
    Rohana Wijeweera was one public manifestation that the caste-marginalised in Sinhala society are fighting back. The influential and powerful Sinhala Buddhist Maha Sangha was, and is very much, also fractured by this clearly obvious aberration in the Sinhala South.

      He is a pensioner who has not worked at least 30 years in Australia to receive that pension. So what more do you expect from him??
      30% reservations has not worked at India only increased corruption, and excluded the best.
      Equal opportunities have not worked in the UK and have excluded the best.
      All this has done is increased the vote base of the left parties and brought in idiots into power on both sides.
      Communism which is left thinking is a parasite that can survive only in a democracy.
      Present Russia and China were born of American aid and we see their economy when the western democracy sneezes.
      Artist will keep on dreaming without reason and shove garbage.
      Lanka has proved time and again that it is so corrupt and has been unable to keep a simple promise. MR2 has not resigned and will not but associates with the baldies and double speak.
      EU cannot have a federal system which US wants it to have. A couple of European nations are former colonisers of the world and they don’t like to be told.
      Even India is not all that rosy- Financially important TN has always been neglected by center but they perform on own. Punjab tried to come out on own but it was thwarted by US/UK like they did to Lanka. US/UK wants everyone to get together for their benefit but not for all- that’s the issue to crack and it is illusive.
      Because he is old someone at Australia should take to county courts (it cost £50) for spreading ethnic hatred in a battered nation then he would get the warning- ASBO.

    Prizes Galore

    I was right. So far no takers. They are just insulting, talking irrelevancies and blabbering. Obviously, every word in the article is true.

    I will up the stakes.

    US $ 100 for every untruth in the article.

    T & C:

    1) Only Vellahla Tamils can compete.

    2) Clear proof must be given.

    3) Members of the families of Mahindapala, Edwin and Silvestra are not eligible to compete.

    Bonus: Edwin will shut up for one month for each proven untruth.

    OK guys, ready, steady, go!

        But Edwin has already confirmed on this forum that he is not residing in the UAE Abu Dhabi. Neither do you know the church there or who runs it.
        What is your problem??

    What more can you expect from people who worship monkeys riding donkeys?

    There is no doubt that every word in the main article is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Let me summarize.

    The Vellahlas are like the Nazis. The Nazis considered the Jews, Gypsies and other non Aryans as sub humans and designed and deployed highly effective systems such as gas chambers to implement their final solution.

    Luckily for the low caste Tamils, though the Vellahlas were morally equally degenerated as the Nazis, they were not as smart as them.

    Facts:

    1) The Vellahlas kept the so called ‘low caste’ Tamils under severe oppression and considered them as sub humans.

    2) On the other hand the Vellahlas elevated animals such as monkeys, cows, elephants, peacocks and even mice to the deity level.

    3) This is a double crime. Downgrading humans below animals and Upgrading animals to deity level.

    Final comment: What more can you expect from people who worship monkeys riding donkeys?

    I can’t bother to read another pile of the usual garbage from you Mr HLDM – I think it stands for (He [Edited out])
    But with over 200 comments, I must congratulate you for becoming the Sri Lankan version of Donald Trump – A completely brain dead old man who manages to get a lot of attention in the media :)

      His small mind has become a devils workshop and he thinks his written word is the world when the world has more than 2 dimensions.
      His problem is he never knew when to retire. When you retire you never go back to the profession in any way but to nature where you really enjoy the beauty of nature and be one with it and it’s more or less bliss on earth. There are several places in Asia where European communities live like that. He could do it because his adopted country gives him a pension gratis.
      Australia has plenty of it but sinhala buddhist `Greed`is all encompassing even idiots like the mercenary Taraki the journalist.
