    [Incidentally the `Sannasa` of Keerthi Shri Rajasingha has a significant phrase. It refers to the Olanda (Dutch), the Javakas, the Dravidas as `na na deshavasi vyaparika janaya` (not the vyaparika prajava) or the business people (not the community) from different lands, who were residing in the coastal area close to Deeghavaapi temple. Now this is a very important historical document written only about 60 years before 1815 and goes a long way, with other historical facts, documents etc., in exploding the Tamil homeland myth. Surely `na na deshavasi janaya` whether business people or not could not have had homelands in other countries. If the present eastern province is a Tamil homeland one could even say that it is a Dutch homeland as well.]

    C`mon my friend, the current Sinhala racists made up lots of phrases and things even in Mahavamsa agaisnt the Tamils. Do you want us to believe all that?

    There wasn`t any Sinhala or Tamil identity in the present sense in ancient Sri Lanka. The Sinhala kings were only concerned about protecting their own petty kingdoms.

    In order to do that they slept with Tamils, Kalinga even with Portuguese. If you go by pure Sinhala blood, there is no Sinhala king with pure Sinhala blood, they all are mixed with Tamil and Kalinga dynasties.

    [Now you jumped from the Tamil signature to the Ehelapola. Are you agree with me the Kandiyan chiefs signed in Tamil? Therefore, the Tamil language was the court language of the Kandiyan Kingdom, Answers that first please. ]

    Out of the all the signatories there was only one who signed in Tamil in the Kandyan treaty. all the kings who came from Malabar had converted themselves to buddhist in order to keep their kingship intact and be accepted by the people. The may have used the language of the incoming king on some occasions till the king get time to learn the sinhala language. other than that the the language spoken in the court is sinhalese.

    In your pathetic attempt to twist history you came up with signatures being tamil so tamils ruled. How do you decipher the ruling language from illegible sign. I sign in English, am I from UK?

    Thivya Keerthi Sri Rajasingha is not from Mahawansa, he is a malabar king who converted to buddhism and done many a service to the religion.

    :)) LOL. Oh! you sign in English because it is an international language. Are you telling me few hundred years ago, the Tamil language had the clout equivalent to the English langauge, in the Kandiyan Kingodm?

    Ho many Sinhalese Villagers were mascared by LTTE, infannts were cut to pieces, monks were butcchered...where are those pics, why don`t you put up those as well.

    Ah I forgot, LTTE is a terrorist organisation and they can do what ever they wants as some of the terrorist supporters say.

    cheap shot, should have expected from some one like you. why r you running away from the argument I made?

    [cheap shot, should have expected from some one like you]

    That is not cheap shot, I guess you don`t know the meaning of cheap shot.

    I am serious, tell me why you sign in English language, because if you sign in Sinhala, many people won`t understand and it is not always acceptable to the government and to the business world.

    All I am asking, do you think, perhaps for the same reasons, the Sinhala chiefs signed in Tamil instead of Sinhala in the Kandiyan Kingdom.
