Oslo only trying to please the LTTE ? Devananda

  • 21 Aug 2005 19:44:43 GMT

    YES, DEVANANDA HAS A VALID POINT. NORWEGIANS HAVE NO CAPACITY TO SUSTAIN OR ACHIEVE ANY POSITIVE OUTCOME FOR TAMILS. ONLY INDIA, US AND UK COULD ACHIEVE THAT.

    NORWAY IS JUST TRYING SCORE A POINT INTERNATIONALLY THAT THEY ARE PEACE LOVERS, PROMOTERS. THEY JUST WANT TO DUMP THEIR PEOPLE IN JOBS IN ASIA, GAIN CREDIBILITY.

    LTTE KNOWS THIS TOO,,,, BUT THEY USE EVERYONE FOR THEIR GOALS.

    IF SOME ONE IS SERIOUS, THEY MUST ENGAGE USA,UK OR INDIA TO THE TALKS.

    MR.DEVANANDA, WHY DON`T YOU FIND A REAL ISSUE TO DO YOUR POLITICS? TALKING BAD ABOUT LTTE IS NOT ONLY ISSUE TAMILS HAVE.

    SO SPEAK ABOUT THE TAMIL CAUSE, TSUNAMI RELIEF, ARBITARY ARRESTS... ETC.....

    GET A LIFE MAN.

    Victor

    uk was interested to negociate peace in lanka as they the ones knows better lanka than any one in the world,they have ruled the tamils and sinhala at that colonial era time and made a united srilanka for their convenience.

    gosl is the one rejected uk,at the same time india was rejected by ltte,usa will not deal with lanka directly as they have put their hands in the middle east.

    norway always acted as the front line warriors of usa,we all know that.

    like you mentioned all those countries (,uk,usa ,india,)are getting briefed by norway and norway working right under with these governments.

    Oh mr. devanandah

    you are working very well for your employer, keep it up. we(tamil) know that you are one of the traitor, please your boss who pay you and your employees.

    you have to pay for what you have done to tamils. you are one curse of our tamils community.

    you are puppet of india and sl and dance what ever they want because you and you employees are paid by them.

    Well said, one gutsy Tamil speaks about the work of a scum coward at his best! For sure, the Vikings are contriving a scam with the subhuman elements in the world to hoodwink the rest. We have time, bring on another cricket series, we`ll forget all about the sakkilis and their `problems.`

    Minister Devananda must not forget that the International Community now includes displaced Sri Lankans, primarily Tamils. Tigers are heavily dependent on this part of the International Community. To the extent these Tamils follow International standards, Tigers would need to at least respect International standards or risk losing economic support. It is doubtful that the Tigers can survive purely on moral and social support. The young generation of Tamils is far more poweful than they were when the Tigers were born. Winning these young minds is the key to continuity of Tigers. Most of these young minds have been groomed on Western systems. If the Tigers are not able to win them over they are likely to destroy themselves one way or the other. Promises have been given to younger generation Tamils and if they are not fulfilled we would become a depressed society. That would be disastrous for the whole of Sri Lanka including Minister Devananda who has a good reputation for reviving Hindu temples.

    Victor`s suggestion to bring other countries into the loop is naive. Only those who have genuinely invested in Sri Lankans on either side would have the confidence to bring about a reconciliation. Others would talk theory which the Tigers are not ready for because theirs is the bottom up approach. India could have but Tigers do not trust Indian politicians. We are limited to the sources that both sides can relate to. Countries such as Canada that have genuinely invested in Tamils refugees qualify more than countries such as the US for whom Sri Lanka is an insignificant part of their life. We must reward each group on the basis of their sacrifices for us, to become a part of each other.

    Pera, I feel very sad about your posting some where when you said that you cannot trust the Tamils. Just see how many Tamils are laying their lives for the Sinhalese government and Sinhalese. If they are not trustworthy will they do all that? Just see Kataragamar, he was a jaffna Tamil but how faithful he was for the Sinhalese government and people.He went against his conscience, his personal safety and did an excellent job for the Sinhalese masters. Then you have Mr.Anandasangara, another Jaffna Tamil, who is prepared to lay his life for the Sinhalese. He has even seen how a Tamil barber fellow (Sangara is from a high cast)was accidentally shot inside the barber saloon and condemning the Tamils for making such a big fuss about it. Had Sangara been with us I am sure he would have said that Kadir too was shot by an accidental discharge from his security guard or even due to a friendly fire! Now from no where there is a voice from none other than Devananda, another Jaffna Tamil with a Christian name in front, is prepared for the supreme sacrifice, again for the Sinhalese. Tamil names would have ended as `Devanandan`, so here when the baby was borne his parents would have known or perhaps an astrologer would have predicted that he would die as a Sinhalese one day and hence Devananda! Please don`t say after all he is doing this for all what the Sinhalese are paying him, a gratitude. But you must understand that he is risking his life. He even wants the Indians to come back, that is his gratitude toward RAW`s money and perks. Even without his invitation Indians will be here soon and then we can travel to Buddhagaya and Saanchi without passport. So you can trust Tamils at least in some cases and hence you cannot make a general statement, it is very very unfair. But one thing, had there been a Sri Lankan government instead of a Sinhalese Government then all the Tamils would have become very trustworthy. I think Arunachalam Ramanathan too was a Jaffna Tamil fellow who went and pleaded with the suddhas to stop the unfair killing of the Sinhalese many many eyars ago.

    Nada,

    You tell me that I must trust and respect Anandasangaree and Devananda. Next you will tell me to trust and respect that terrorist who changed sides Karuna!

    No way sir. I rather respet YOU than those oppertunistic idiots managed to top the death list of Thalaivar.

    Both Anandasangaree and Devananda were fighting for their own survival. I can understand that perfectly. They shared a common cause with Praba and now they are in the wrong books of thalaivar. Thats the trouble.

    Kadir is a different stroy. He is a Trinity lion and never shared any dreams with a terrorist. So I could respect him as a Sri Lankan (as he himself identified). Hope I made myself clear.

    Cheers

    PS What is the Sangara caste? Better than Vellalai?? Im curious.

    NADA (or anyone who can answer):

    I want to clarify one of the things you mentioned. What is Daouglas`s surname. Is it Devananda (as in Sinhala), DevanandaH or DevanandaN (both as in Tamil). I want clarify this because I have come across atleast one other Tamil name which rymes like a Sinhala surname.

    Thanks.
