    Letter from a Tamil in Canada

    The comments by various people show how foolishly we, Tamils continue to glorify violence, suicide and terror. We began all this in 1939 with G.G. Ponnambalam attacking the Sinhalese in a virulent speech in1939, resulting in the first Sinhala Tamil riot.

    After the war SJV and others used every chance to gore the government instead of building bridges. They spurned the left leaders who stood for parity and preferred to hob-nob with their Colombo-7 capitalist leaders.

    Our Colombo, Tamil leaders arrogantly started the ball rolling, and even claimed that they are `ready for state terror`. The local militants realized that they were being bamboozled by the Colombo set, and they captured control, killed those leaders, our best men and women, and made cannon fodder out of our children.

    Look at this partial list:

    1. The JR government in 1977 granted all the demands on language etc. that the previous Tamil organizations had asked for. But we could not profit from it, because by then we were under the gun of Prabakaran.

    2. India came in and merged North and East two provinces, and provided an honourable framework. But we reengaged the whole thing and started another war. Prabakaran would have been annihilated by the IPKF if not for Premadasa.

    3. Further accommodation was possible under Premadasa. But we reengaged him and killed the 600 police who surrendered.

    4. Under Chandrika we had the far reaching constitutional proposals by Neelan Thiruchelvan, but we replied by assassinating him.

    5. Incredible concessions were made by the Ranil Wickremasinghe government with the Cease Fire agreement. But we used it to stock up arms, get ready for another war and made sure of such a war by preventing Ranil`s Victory.

    This list of 5 does not include the innumerable other chances that had been offered. Why would any politician think that a political solution is possible with Prabakaran?

    So, why are were talking of a political solution?

    LTTE has always worked for a military solution. This Anuradhapura attack is the same old Killinochchi wine that Bishop Chikera is now peddling and desecrating even the Eucharist. The LTTE does NOT want a political solution. It wants a military solution from the barrel of a gun. In the process it will destroy the Ceylon Tamils by destroying the future generation. How many Tamils are now left in the Vanni? What is the percentage of Tamils in Sri Lanka today? The CIA world fact book says that there is now only about 5% Tamils in SL!

    Instead of executing this attack on the Anuradhapura military camp, if Prabakaran had declared that HE IS FOR A FEDERAL SOLUTION and that HE WILL PEACEFULLY CONTEST ELECTIONS EVERY WHERE IN SRI LANKA, do you think ANY SINHALA POLITICIAN of any worth could OPPOSE IT? Even the most extreme `unitary man` would have to take up this chance. Even many Sinhala might vote for Prabakaran if he had the capacity to the right thing. But a `Venkai` does not change its spots.

    Instead, for 30 years, he has led the Tamils on the path of destruction and suicide. Foolish Tamils, drunk with the venom of hat sing in his praise. I lay the whole blame on Prabakaran for destroying the Ceylon Tamils. He is the biggest friend of Sinhala Chauvinists. Prabakaran has done what no Dutugemunu could ever do - reduce the Tamil areas to a prison for the Tamils, reduce the reputation of Tamils all over the world, kill our next generation and convert the remainder into war-mongering youngsters unfit for civilian life. The adults have been reduced to displace persons.

    School principles and Temple dignitaries have been assassinated.

    Only the Tamils living in cozy comfort in the foreign lands can continue to rattle their swords, mesmerized by Prabakaran`s war games which have destroyed the Tamil people, and impoverished the Sinhala as well.

    Nothing is possible for the Ceylon Tamils until Prabakaran is a factor in the balance of power. Tamils need educated leaders with a vision fit for today`s global village

    `Thats the difference between North and South Schools.

    Hey KURAL!

    Who is responsible for the militarilisation of North?

    Prabha`s children sat for the OL under special protection where no other ordinary Tamil received and with special passports from the Ranil`s clan and studied in Western Country with diaphorah`s money! Does any ordinary Tamil child has that previledge???

    It is good to give an equal chance to all students from North and East as other students form all over the country.

    [Military sources said that security and normalcy have been ensured by the Army, Navy and the Police thereby creating a conducive environment for students to take the examination without any disturbance. ]

    I pray for the students who have considered higher education important enough to study and do the exam. Just doing the exam is a great achievement.

    I pray that they realise greater benefits from their GCE O.L. grades than I did.

    Gaja Lakshmi Paramasivam - Australian Tamil who achieved relatively high results at the GCE O.L in 1966. I share my success with these courageous students
