    One of the rare occasions where Tamils can be proud of the Sinhalese

    Shiva,

    I think this battle remains the worst ever defeat of European forces in the whole of Asia. There were many times where the Sinhalese and Tamils fought side by side like brothers against the Europeans. Of special note is Pandara Vannian who fought the British. Then the Dutch and British started with their `divide and rule` tactics, the effects of which are still felt today.
