"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

Much could be understood
From that which is not said
But from that which one chooses to not say…
We shall take control of our very own destiny
We shall rule our land and the sea...
Upon our dead we promise…
As long as we live
We will not allow others to tell us what to do or where to go… more

Raise our heads to the sky
And shout Freedom  more

15 March 2006 Trade Wars, Peace Deals and Imperial Occupation

"..In this shrinking global market, the high value ‘stock in trade’ is “peace and human rights”. It has of course, multiple meanings; but one of it is that, it is a ruthless industry. Hence, prior to any “new” peace deals, the Tamils must refuse to fall into the trap in which they were almost entrapped in previous negotiations.

Looking for Loopholes

"Much is being said about the peace overtures in Geneva between the Sri Lanka Government (SLG) and the Tamil Tigers (LTTE). Balasingham called it a “diplomatic victory”. An over estimation, one would think. The SLG have raised their tails and retorted with a spin that the Tigers agreed to an "Amendment to the original Cease Fire Agreement".
