    [Question: Do you like to reveal your true feelings about your life?

    Lusida: I have faced many many problems in life, especially in 1989. Still I have fear over his life, but there`s nothing I can do as he does what he thinks is right. He has no patience at all. But, that`s it, and would forget all about it then and there. I`ve rarely noticed him living with hatred. However, living with a husband like Mervin is not at all easy. He serves everybody with the same spoon (smiles). I think, I have developed a lot of tolerance and patience. How I`ve got all that, I don`t know (smiles). May be because I`ve been facing many things since I was a teenager (after I got married). To tell the truth I really don`t like politics, and would prefer a calm, quiet and unnoticeable lifestyle (smiles). ]

    Here she tells all what happened

    [Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa has appointed Chief-of-Staff of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Maj. Gen. G.A. Chandrasiri as the new Governor of the Northern Province. Maj. Gen. Chandrasiri was the former chief of the SLA in Jaffna, under whose command Jaffna witnessed hundreds of forced disappearances, extra-judicial killings and other human rights violations in the period from 2006 to 2008.

    Tamil political circles in Colombo commented that Mr. Rajpaksa, who claims to have crushed the de-facto state of Tamil Eelam, has appointed his military men in key posts in the occupied Tamil homeland to head civil services with a `colonial mindset`.]

    [The Mohan Sekarams and their likes are e-mailing the whole globe asking for `PUBLIC ACTION` for the release of `the elderly, children, nursing and pregnant mothers as the initial step. ... towards reconciliation, unity and equality ... to secure the release and see the well being of the IDP`s`. If only the old, sick and pregnant, or children are released, who are there to look after them? Can such release be done into villages where the infrastructure is destroyed, water towers and wells blown up, bridges and culverts filled with dengue mosquitoes? In any case, it is the hosting community itself, [[[and NOT the Diaspora living in Scarborough or Melbourne who should decide]]] about accepting such people.]

    [These individuals do not understand that in the west, even a minor sex offender is not released to civil society without a long period of re-education as well as consultation with the public. Many western communities refuse to accept the `healed` offender for fear of re-offending. In Sri Lanka, all the able bodied civilians under the LTTE were conscripted (by force or willingly) for terrorism. The young were snatched from school and trained as fighters and cannon fodder. How long would it take to rehabilitate an illiterate teenage fighter and train him for a job? [[[Would you give a job to a `rehabilitated` ex-LTTE fighter in your business? Will they re-offend?]]] That is the stark reality.]

    [The Moan Sekarams and others who wax eloquent among the chattering classes are clueless individuals who have not assessed the problem.]

    [I believe that the government is unrealistic in attempting to release the IDPs `in 180 days`. IT should go more slowly and recognize that it is doing an excellent job. [[[The criticisms of the western press and the ever-blind Tamil Diaspora should be duly countered.]]]]

    [The IDP camps are much better than I expected them to be. A community sense and a new social consciousness superseding the old order of caste and class prevail in the camps. [The logistics of feeding 300,000 people, ensuring their health, education and security are enormous.][[ They would be even more enormous if they were released into derelict, dysfunctional villages full of mines and mosquitoes, as demanded by misguided Diaspora Tamils and their client intellectuals.]] Given the circumstances, [[[the government is doing a far better job of handling the IDPs than India in its camps.]]][[[ The effort is far better than for the Muslims evicted in the 1990s.]]]]

    The last..

    [I also visited the Eastern Province liberated in August 2007. [It was indeed a pleasure to see the new network of roads in the East. ] There are several IDP rehabilitation schools in the Akkaripattu-Oluvil area and I learnt how the ex-fighters are being re-trained and released back to their villages. [In my view, such a process needs at least five years.]

    [[The government should NOT listen to ill-informed political meddlers and do-gooders.]] It should follow the advice of professional educationists, psychiatrists and probation officers in dealing with the IDPs. [[[Finally, before individuals are released to civil society, the community (i.e., the local citizens) should be consulted to ensure that the returned ex-fighters are accepted into that society with their full knowledge, and NOT in some clandestine manner.]]]]
