as i said, the stories on the trains, that is not what i saw. I was not living at that time, it is what i heard from others.
I know you were not born at the time but trust me I left college in 1976 and i travel to Hatton where my parents lived every holidays. That means taking the Train!!
there were probably isolated incidents, but Nale also had few stories about what happened on the trains. but I dont think people would make those stories up though.
There is no need to make any stories but i have no reason to lie too..it did not happen during the time I lived in Jaffna.
Do remember that there was a lot of violence against Tamils before 1983.
There is one possibility that was after the 1977 riots..but it has to be isolated incidents..
