    Appointing Pillayan as chief minister of the East is the biigest step towards eradicating terrorism. This shows that there is no ethnic problem in the country. Now he has to prove that Tamils themselves are truly concerned about their own people.By doing so he can eliminate the suffering they had for years due to LTTE factor.East can flourish again using the new developments that are on the way.A big salute to the president and the masterminds behind the whole operation.

    [Sometimes, there are things that teachers should not hesitate to learn from pupils.]

    Provided pupils in substance have demonstrated their higher authority. It should not be for quick benefits.

    [It is no shame for Prabhakaran to learn from Pillaiyan how to transmute bullets into ballots. ]

    Ultimately it is not about Prabakaran`s ego but about the dignity of the People they believe they are representing. As per my observations, Tamils of North are more independent than Tamils of Batticaloa. The solutions cannot be extended indiscriminately especially given that the two areas now stand divided. To the extend GOSL firmed up that division, it has to work harder to find a different solution for North.

    As we sow, so shall we reap.

    Choosing the Path of Dhamma is No disgrace

    Niranjan Wijeratne is no more the custodian of Dalada Mandirya. Visiting him once he mentioned that he was born to be the custodian of Dalada Madura from all his previous births and now repent the loss of the same. Even hails from highly respected Wijeratne Family, and the respect he was receiving from the people of the nation now has sunk for good solely on his polluted low thinking branding him to a lower state. This karma has deprived the very position once he enjoyed.

    Buddha s pupils, devotees and all Sravakas of various races, casts, creeds including the untouchables or harijans were embraced with loving kindness and open arms to the path of Dhamma. Niranjan, I only mention Angulimala here. Mr. Wijeratne, thou shall not jump the track making a dangerous derailment of your train. You have lost the respect of all Buddhist devotees. You are only ridiculing Maha Sangha. Perhaps you may be trying to teach Maha Nayakas Dhamma you think you know! Even if you want to insult the present Chief Minister of Eastern Province never ever even in a dream to disgrace Maha Sangha with such low mentality. While Chandrakanthan seek the path of supreme Dhamma, you seems to be heading towards the path of Avichi Niraya.

    So there are incompatibilty issues among Tamils too, according to the learned lady. And, is the hardliner`s stand endorsed to be the only solution to the problem? Just curious.

    During the early days of Varatharaja Perumal`s ascendancy to Chief Minister post in 1988 more praise was heped on him. But the following year he was a disaster in the very eyes that created him as a rival to VPrabakaran. Then president JR Jayawardene refused to budge in giving him the power nor the money to carry out his development projects. He was forced to declare Unilteral Independence of Eelam that VP could not dream of doing. He was ordered to be arrested. Within an year of glory the disaster struck because the Sinhalese leadership wanted to keep a tight lid on everything the CM embarked on. 13th Amendment vests all the powers and monetory control of the PC not with the CM but with the (Sinhala) president at the centre.

    Sinhalese colonialism with Pillayan as the puppet will have a shorter period than Perumal`s as the stakes with Muslim rivalry is higher now. Pillaiyan`s holding to his guns may turn out to be a deterrent to his arrest when things take unexpected turns.

    Sintamus,

    [Sinhalese colonialism with Pillayan as the puppet will have a shorter period than Perumal`s as the stakes with Muslim rivalry is higher now.]

    Not if Pillayan has on his side clever and strong fiscal managers.
