The Historical Homeland of Sri Lankan Tamils is Tamil Nadu!

This article by Shenali Waduge is brilliant as has always been with her regular pieces that appear on Lankaweb.  At least some patriotic Sinhalese writers have started to highlight the fact that It was the Northern and Eastern regions of Sri Lanka which was the original places of habitation for the Sinhalese Buddhists as I have been highlighting it in my blog for many years. In other words the Sinhalese Buddhist civilization was born and flourished in that part of the country which culminated with the rise of the great Anuradhapura city.

Some place names in the the North in particular, later Tamilinized, are highlighted in Shenali's article, a must read for every patriotic Sinhalese Buddhist. The bottom line is that the so called "Tamil Homeland ' of the Tamils in Sri Lanka is indeed Tamil Nadu from where the Tamils migrated and settled in the North and East of Sri Lanka. However,a sustained and vigorous propagation of fabricated history of Tamils in Sri Lanka operational for well over a century, duly supported by the Western Colonists, have been able to portray a completely bogus and false history of Tamils in Sri Lanka.

This bogus history is used as a launching pad to claim the so called "Tamil Homeland". The absence of Sinhalese Buddhists for many centuries from the region mainly contributed by the numerous South Indian invasions and persecutions by the Western Colonists paved the way for erasing the evidences of their civilization's presence there. Those evidences, mainly archaeological, have been wiped out with blatant vandalism. In many cases Hindu Kovils have been built on the very sites which used to be Buddhist Temples and other buildings. On the other hand many place names which bore original Sinhalese names have been smartly Tamilinized. Thanks to some enterprising lexicologists the original Sinhalese names have been traced and discovered. Some of these original names get mentioned in the inscriptions found in the places as well as the references in Mahavamsa. Some of these names, of course, have undergone a very little change only and have been Tamilinized in a simple manner. A case in point is Weligamam or Welikamam and Kodigamam of which original Sinhalease names were Weligama and Kodigama respectively. The fact that the Tamilinized words have no meaning at all in Tamil proves that they are just Tamilinized Sinhalese words.                   

The article also includes the list of demands by the Northern Chief Minister Vigneshwaran  which was made public recently in some protest campaigns held in Jaffna.  Some readers will certainly be shocked by reading the list of demands. The Sinhalese Buddhists who elected the present Yahapalana government to power and happen to harbor at least an iota of love for their motherland will find that they have been taken for a good bloody ride. The comments made to the article too are equally interesting and informative.

Why does the West want to mess with SL Army?

As has always been the case this piece by Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka titled 'The Geneva resolution: Real reasons and real target', appeared on The Island on 04th Oct, is indeed thought provoking and eye-opening. This should be a must read for every patriotic Sri Lankans, especially for Sinhalese. He highlights a fact that some people do not explicitly declare but really works in their minds. 

According to Dr. Jayatilleka there are some races/nationalities that the West does not historically trust. The cases in points are the Russians, Iranians and Pakistanis. The West have always been at odd with them though in certain cases briefly friendly with some of them to achieve their opportunistic and ulterior motives. However, the West will act with a lethal force against  them when an opportunity comes. What we witness against Russia and Iran at the moment are best examples. Pakistan too will have to pay the price soon. It seems the homework for that eventuality is gathering momentum.  A yet another such race is the Sinhalese. The game plan of the West is to make the Sinhalese weak. The Geneva resolution has many plans aimed at achieving this goal. One of them is to weakening the Sri Lanka army, a nerve Centre in which Sinhalese pride rests in a larger extent.

Though Dr. Jayatilleka doesn't mention in his article,  a careful analysis and study of the past and present events reveal that it is not only the West that considers Sinhalese to be untrustworthy. The Sinhalese, the Sinhalese Buddhists in particular have consistently been a thorn in the flesh for India. The alignment between the the West and India will indeed be a lethal combination against the Sinhalese Buddhists in future.
