US$ 2.3 mn Korean aid to elevate Jaffna Technical College

  • 20 Jan 2006 23:04:02 GMT

    Was the allocation of this Education Aid done on Merit basis or as per Magha`s stated 60:40 rule or totally subjective as per the one sided thinking of the government - throwing just a small bit to appease the Tamils?

    Gaja Lakshmi,

    How dare you are to misquote me in public writting that I stated 60:40 rule?

    This what you posted on the topic `computer failure and university admissions:

    By the way, my husband said the first time I mentioned your 55% and 40% analysis - that it must be 60% based on population. He is a statistics / facts expert. So he picked up what I missed.


    Please do not edit your post as Tamilkanuck said.

    Loosing an argument is different but do not mislead the members of the forum.

    Technical college to Jaffna? Are they crazy?

    They should buy some T56s and claymore bombs. That is what they need right now.

    I feel sorry for you.

    Do you think that you can convince anything to this eelamists.

    You are trying to swim across the oceans.

    Thanks for your empathy.

    Nice to see you here; however, it is a bit cheap and opportunistic shot from you to say that you feel sorry for Magha.

    It is best that if you stop generalising; Magha may be having disagreements with Gaja, just leave it as that, please.

    Personally, I feel that Gaja goes on and on too much, and I do not bother to read.

    There are a lot more people like Magha on these forums these days, and I am confident that both Tamils and Sinhalese will overcome extremism one way or the other.

    The following statement is very correct.

    I am confident that both Tamils and Sinhalese will overcome extremism one way or the other.

    Before 1980s we had ignorance about tamils. Now it is extremism against because of anger. That may take some time to settle.

    Thank you Magha for the response. I dare because to my simple mind 100 minus 40 is 60.

    Your 55 and 40 stand on their own. The missing 5 percent represents your `hidden` cards / facts.

    If you are brave enough why don`t you reveal the hidden 5% to prove me wrong? Or do you want to tell everyone that 55 + 40 make 100?

    As for editing my posts - I do so only for typing mistakes and not to change the substance. Unlike you I am not afraid of making mistakes. I am not afraid because unlike you I do no desire material benefits from this work.

    If LTTE do close the Technical College, that would prove that the government was unwise in investing foreign funds in Jaffna wouldn`t it?

    I you do not read, how do you know that I go on and on TOO MUCH and not too little or to a finish until we know the Truth as a group?
