On the other hand, the Seventy year old Tamil King Ellalan(Elara) was willing to submit him for a one on one fight with the young and virile Duttu Gemunu to stop spilling the blood of his subjects, Sinhalese and Tamils alike.



was VP coming to single combat after taking a bath at Nanthikandhal when he got axed?

TALKING TO MARK LEVINSON

ML,

The Sinhala Nazi roots website deliberately didn't mention the word Tamil. They always mention Pandiya or Pallava or Chola dynasties. All Sinhala racists are the same, and they try to hide the Tamil connection. The Sinhala website will say even the Kalinga Prince Nissankamalla and the Tamil blooded King Prakrambahu as the Sinhalese but they will never mention the word Tamil.

I took the facts from the website and added the Tamil word to the Tamil dynasties, that's all. This type of denial of the Sinhala racists is the main reason for this ethnic conflict. The Sinhala historians distorted the Tamil connection and Tamils positive contribution to this island and demonized the Tamils. The Sinhala children grew up learning the Tamils were invaders and usurpers, i.e., the enemies of the Sinhalese.

As I said before, there is no concrete proof to show the early rulers of this country were Sinhalese or Tamils. But the Sinhala overzealous Buddhist monks who wrote the Mahavamsa 600 years after the arrival of Vijaya twisted the Tamil connection to demonize the Hindu Tamils. At that time, the Tamils were started to persecute the Buddhists in Tamil Nadu. Many fleeing Tamil Buddhists also took the separate racial identity after they reached Sri Lanka.

1. Do you have any proof other than the biased, religious book called Mahavamsa to show the real identity of the early Saivite rulers of Sri Lanka? Tell me, in which chapter Mahavamsa says the early Sri Lankan Kings were Sinhalese. Why do we have to assume, they are Sinhalese? They could be Tamils or Sinhalese or Nagas. Who told you the Nagas were Sinhalese? Do you have any concrete evidence to prove the Naga tribe was Sinhalese?

2. The Nazi Sinhala root website cannot be considered as the neutral source of information. They totally black out the Queen Damila Devi, the wife of King Chandamuka Siva. She also ruled Sri Lanka for a while. Like this, there are many deliberate attempts to deny the Tamil connection in the Sinhala racist web sites.

3. According to the Mahavamsa, King Elara was a Damila from the Chola Dynasty and King Dutugemunu was a Naga tribe, why are you calling the Naga prince as a Sinhala King?

4. In which chapter the Mahavamsa says, the early rulers of Sri Lanka as Sinhalese? Why do we have to assume they are Sinhalese? According to Mahavamsa, Vijaya and his 700 friends married to Tamil women and there were close interactions with the Tamil Pandiyan kingdom. Can you prove that the early rulers were not Tamils? Some of their names are pure Tamil names, how will you describe that?

When there was no Sinhala language in Lanka or in any part of the world before 8th A.D., it is thuggery to claim that there were Sinhala people in Lanka prior to the 8th century A.D. The Mahavamsa is written in Pali and not is Sinhala.

I would suggest that while Dutu Gemunu's 'Sinhala' credentials are open for debate, his 'heroic' credentials are also suspect. There are also his Buddhist credentials as the murderer of a geriatric. Are murderers of Tamil geriatrics considered champions in the Sinhala culture.

The same way the Sinhala nationalists have taken a Tamil named SENPAKA PERUMAL who built a famous Hindu temple in Jaffna and made him a 'Sinhala' hero Sapumal Kuamraya. Is he really a Sinhalese? Why the roots website didn't mention him as a Tamil king?(Senpakam-Flower in Tamil= Sapumal and Perumal- Son in Tamil = kumaraya)

Sinhala nationalists taken 20 odd year-old Gemunu who killed a 70 odd year-old Tamil in single combat, whose parents are from two Naga settlements and turned him into a 'Sinhala' hero, all done in the cause of buttressing a 'Sinhala' nationalist agenda?

For those with an enlightened mind, there is a need for closer examination of the facts as presented to us and expose the ethno-linguistic agendas of the Sinhala nationalists who have destabilized the country.

It could be suggested that the political strategy in building a tomb for Elara and the Ruvanveliseya itself may be to placate a hostile Buddhist population( not necessarily Sinhala population) in Anuradhapura who loved and respected the Tamil Elara who has been described for being noble.

ML,
Now, you tell me, what is wrong with I am correcting the Tamil connections deliberately left out by the Sinhala racist web site?

It should be noted that the Tissa Dynasty started with king Tissa (307-267 BC) who was given the title Devanampiya by the Indian emperor (Devanampriya) Asoka for accepting Buddhism.

Prince Tissa was the second Son of King Muta Siva (367-307 BC) and brother of king Maha Siva (257-247 BC). Muta Siva (367-307 BC) was the Son of King Pandu kabaya, and Pandu kabaya (437-367 BC) was the son-in-law of Giri Kanda Siva and Grandson of King Pandu Vasudeva (504-474 BC).

The Pandyans of South India were known as Pandu in the Pali chronicle. All the names mentioned above are South Indian.

Who says Dutugemunu was a Sinhala King?

On which historical document/structure it mentioned that King Dutugamunu was a Sinhala?

Dutugemunu, the hero of the Sinhalese, was a Naga king. His mother Vihara Maha Devi was the daughter of the Naga king of Keleniya, and his father Kavan Tissa, was the great grandson of Maha Naga, who established a kingdom in Mahagama (modern Tissamaharama) in Rohana (ancient south Lanka).

Some of the kings who proudly bore Naga clan names Khallata Naga (Dutugemunu's nephew), Cora Naga, who was one of the many victims poisoned to death by the amorous Queen Anula, Mahadathika Maha Naga and Ila Naga (believed to be a poet who contributed to ancient Tamil literature). Ila Naga's son Candamuka Siva married Damila Devi, a Tamil princes from South India.

There is NO evidence what so ever to prove that the Nagas were Sinhalese. Just because Elara was a Tamil, by default, his opponent Dutugemunu became a Sinhala.

But many of us don't know that DUTU GEMUNU WAS READY TO GIVE HIS MOTHER AWAY TO A TAMIL CHIEFTAIN NAMED TITTHAMBA, whom he was fighting for four months and couldn't defeat. Mahavamsa describes this incident as 'CUNNING', Saying Dutu Gemunu (finally) overcame this Tamil Chieftain, fighting crafty and powerful foe by cunning, since he placed his mother in his view.'



This explains the reasons behind the banning of marriages by VP. preferring the damsels to himself.

For example, the Indian Hindus do not venerate Ravana, the King of Lanka. For them he was a villain, evil king, womanizer and the opponent of their god Rama. The Tamils of Sri Lanka, according to their Saivite tradition, they venerate him as a hero, devotee of Siva, the lover of Tamil language and above all he was a Taml. Almost every Hindu Temple in Sri Lanka has Ravanan's statues in the Gopuram (Tower) and a day to commemorate his devotion to Lord Siva. But I don't think any Temple in India has a statue or festival for the Sri Lankan King Ravanan.

Neither Epigraphy nor Pali chronicles say Dutugemunu was a Sinhala .Not a single stone inscription/rock edict of India(South/ North) that was always associated with the island s history mentioned about a Sinhala Kingdom or a Sinhala nation in Sri Lanka.

Finally Pawan is questioning the true ancestry of Dutu Gemunu. I guess he is trying to distance himself from Dutu Gemunu, the 'proud ancestor of Sinhalese'. :)))LOL

Pawan,

You are quoting my earlier posts. But remember you and many Sinhalese were vehemently tried to prove that Dutu Gemunu was a SINHALA. What happned now? Does it mean you agree that Dutu Gemunu was NOT a Sinhala? :)))LOL
