"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
- Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

 "Nation building often means political unification of territory: think of Italy or Germany. Sri Lanka is imposing on the Tamils the very reversed process, hoping to reduce them into numerous separate groups with no collective interests, consciousness and institutions thus breaking their will and capacity to resist. This is what the GOSL and the international community implies by "rehabilitation and massive economic development". "

Without the financial back up from these foreign powers the Sri Lankan government would not have the means to continue this war on Tamils. While the international community lectures Tamils about diplomacy, the Sri Lankan state is carrying on with its main preoccupation: that is how to destroy what is left and what is being built in Tamil land..."

Again and again we see the carrots of political recognition and economic assistance being dangled and verbal and diplomatic threats splayed before the Tamils. While all this is happening in the land of our fore bearers, we, the barefoot colonials, the educated, skilled, suave, connected, or whatever else we like to call ourselves, are in an ethical and moral slumber. ‘The Norwegians would not let the Tamils down, the Indians will save them, the Japanese will sort it out’ we say..." more
