Excellent post, Thank you.
Thanks. The Tamil freak stories about the origin of the Sinhalese and the different etymologies they give for the word Sinhala is ridiculous. Sinha is an ancient Indo Aryan word which refers to the Lion. It means the same in Tamil too.

According to these nuts all the words with Sinha in then, the world means Lion, but only the Sinha in Sinhala means anything but Lion!!!!???? How about Singapore?

Anyway who knows what the correct etymology is and I think it is really quite irrelevant to the discussion. They do it since they just don't have a history of their own, so they make the Sinhalese into ex-Tamils.... Only imagination sets the limit to these etymologies. Take for example English - it seems that over 40% of the etymologies of the English words are either wrong or not known, but Tamilnuts seem to know the exact etymology of all Sinhala words and Sri Lankan place names. Idiots. Tamilnut.c om has a whole set of articles on etymolgies - quite funny actually, how they go on and on and then suddenly lose the trail and say something different. LOL.

I think it is stupid to claim that the Sinhalese didn't exist before the 9th century and that the Sinhala people thought that the word Sinhala had something to do with red soil etc etc.... when they have books about themselves and had built cities with the Lion emblem on it by that time.

TS, you are IDIOT !!

A Cheap Show off and that it ..

What you are doing is, instead of providing counter arguments to the articles, you are simply asking more and more questions exposing your ignorance in public.

We do not want questions, we want answers to the controversial issues raised here.

eople are calling you a stupid and made you the clown of the blog and most of them are ignoring you as (mental case) because you are raising more and more silly (childish) questions instead of coming up with counter arguments.

May be you should drink a lot of milk and grow up soon !!!!!

There is no controversy. The controversy is all in your head. The island has been Sinhala from time immemorial. Tamils in Sri Lanka is a diaspora of Tamilakam. It is uncontroversial as 1 + 1 is 2.

1. It is a written fact and well documented that the island, its people and languge from ancient times has been called Sinhala, Sinhaladvipa, Cinkalam/Cinkalavar etc. If there was no Sinhala language and there were no Sinhalese, and the Tamils were here from time immemorial it is they who should be called Cinkalavar and their language Cinkalam.

2. The Tamil country, Tamilakam, and its boundaries is very well described and documented in the Tamil literature itself. Cinkalam is listed as one of the foreign lands.

I have not presented any new arguments, but tried to explain how all these hatefull Tamil fanatical theories don't hold and don't even support each other. I've also shown how they end up proving the complete opposite, because all these theories place the Tamils firmly outside the island in Tamilakam and the Sinhalese in the island.

I have not asked any questions - the questions are the arguments. They could very well be written as normal statesments. If you can't understand the logic leave it and try to cook up theories to make 1 + 1 into something other than 2.

one more thing, there are Dutch and Portuguese words in Chingala too, that dont make them Portuguese or Spanish. Only conclusion we can make from your comments is that you are a really stupid brainless killer cleaner demala.

Istuthi.
