The Sri Lankan national anthem of Tamil version is not the exact translation of the Sinhala version. They have included the word Eelam in the Tamil version to refer the Tamil homeland.

    I recently heard one expert on a TV show saying Eelam means Sinhala Country and Thamil Eelam mean Tamil Sinhala Country or Demala Sinhala Rata.

    He must be kind of retarded expert and I guess he was lying to fool the Sinhala audience. Eelam refers the entire Island in the ancient Tamil Sangam literatures, but in these days the world Eelam denotes the North and East part of the Tamil speaking provinces of Sri Lanka.

    `We`, `they` means the Eelam Tamils. :)))

    I said, `they` , because we in the Diaspora don`t have the chance or need to sing the Sri Lankan national anthem.

    Excellent !!

    See all you had to do was tune up the national anthem a bit. Now there is no reason to split the country down the middle :)

    Bakamoona,

    I am not sure. I have to search but it sounds the same, I heard the both versions, because music is the same. I think after an acceptable Federal solution, the Tamils and Sinhalese should sing few lines in both languages like the Canadian national anthem. :))
