Editorial:
Tamils pay the cost of political expediency

The treatment of Sri Lankan asylum seekers shows that further punishing victims is deemed acceptable if it can score domestic political points. At a time of bipartisan support for renewing the Pacific Solution, it is deeply disturbing to see the asylum seeker issue taking a turn for the more extreme. In a world of dog-whistle politics, it appears that further punishing victims is acceptable if it can score domestic political points.

Opinion:
Shock And Awww!

How do you efface memories of the fact that at least 40,000 civilians (Tamils) were killed in the final phase of a genocidal war in Sri Lanka, the majority of them by the Sri Lankan army’s shelling of hospitals and “safe zones”? How do you move on when 3,00,000 Sri Lankan Tamils were internally displaced—and continue to be treated as suspects by a chauvinist Sinhala regime?

Apply BDS campaign against Sri Lanka: Tamil Nadu writer

Arguing that “massive international pressure alone can halt the ongoing cultural and structural genocide against the Tamils”, Tamil Nadu based poet and writer Meena Kandasamy contends in an article on Tehelka.com that an effective Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, which was used against the apartheid South African state must be also applied to Sri Lanka.

Analysis:
Frogs In A Pot Of Water

There is a facile truism about nations getting the politicians they deserve. We, in Sri Lanka certainly have the kind we deserve.  Small-minded, cliquish, corrupt, self-serving, self-indulgent and deceitful. We should have booted them out a long time ago – but have not.
 
As we watch the conclusion of yet another election what is evident is not that the ballot rules but that parliamentarians have shown once again that they will stoop to any level in order to cling to power.

Column & Special Coverage:
Results of polls will shape Govt. policy on vital issues

The UPFA government’s popularity, both in Sri Lanka and abroad, will be measured today by an unusual yardstick — the outcome of yesterday’s polls for Sabaragamuwa, North Central and Eastern Provincial Councils. The main thrust of the government has been to demonstrate, both here and to the outside world, that despite criticism on a multitude of issues, the UPFA continues to enjoy the confidence of the people. Towards this end, the alliance’s seven-week campaign, where an entire cabinet of ministers had been deployed, was to ensure that it win a larger volume of votes, perhaps higher than previous polls.

The tragic history of post-independence records that the Tamils of Sri Lanka have been subjected to mass-scale mob violence in the years 1956, 1958, 1977, 1981 and 1983. The anti-Tamil violence of July 1983 was the most terrible and horrible of them all. It remains etched in memory even after 27 years.

After 22 days on a boat fleeing Sri Lanka and more than five months in detention, asylum-seeker Jeevan Nanthakumar recently unpacked his suitcases in the home of an Australian pensioner couple. Nanthakumar -- a pseudonym -- said he left his homeland and family in January due to "government problems and enemies in my village".

"I went to India then was on a boat for 22 days, five days with no food and no water," said the 26-year-old.

Why Men Don’t Offer Their Seats To Women In Buse

For view: 09th of September 2012

A year ago a friend of mine from Europe raised an alarming question during her short stay in Sri Lanka: “Why Sri Lankan men don’t give up their seats to women in public transportation?” I am compulsively obliged to defend my motherland Sri Lanka against such an accusation. I have never travelled to Europe; therefore I didn’t know the situation in Eastern Europe. However due to the prevalent Third World citizen mentality, I presumed that she speaks words of wisdom: “this sort of idiosyncrasy could only be seen in countries like Sri Lanka, and India”, I thought.

Relations Between India and Sri Lanka Sour

Last week, while traveling down the coast of Tamil Nadu for my article about the fishing wars between India and Sri Lanka, I noticed pilgrims walking along the side of the road. They trudged along, despite the heat, as they walked kilometers on a pilgrimage to Christian shrines in the state of Tamil Nadu. What I had not realized is that some of the pilgrims visiting the state were from Sri Lanka.
