Caste system in Sri Lanka

  • 26 Jan 2008 19:05:03 GMT

    MArgaret THATCHER is a Sri Lankan woman from Weaver caste of the East.

    Sri Lankan history is well written. See how many books are named here.

    Ask the same question with tamil history in Sri Lanka and their literature. NOTHING. Even the few books that they mention are from TamilNADU. Tamil flags are from TamilNAdu, nothing Sri Lankans.

    I heard even the some tamils are former sinhala people who became tamil because they lived for so long in those areas.

    [Unfortunately this has been a curse. ]

    Looks like still it is...especially in rural areas!!

    Anyway, I did post this simply for the benefit of expats and their children who would never know that such a thing ever existed in their home country...
