MR the great, balanced it all out to get the best outcome for the Sri Lankans. This is what you call intelligence and problem solving skills. At one stage there was a talk about intelligent Tamil, what an oxymoron!

I see lots of intelligent Sinhalese like you that have fled the island for the good life, sweeping roads, working as office cleaners and factory fodder and living in the Western Sydney and South Eastern Melbourne slums like Sajeewi. Oh great intelligent Sinhalese from some London slum, did the intelligent Tamil Yeti trample the Sinhalese ant?
Oh your intelligent posts in these forum, full of wit and humour make good reading. A very good example of Sinhalese intelligence and the benefits of standardisation. Keep up the good work. You Sajeewi and that clown Karawa houseboy or doorkeeper from Italy are great examples of Sinhalese wit.

Sri Lanka is the stage of the Eelam Tamil genocide largely aided and abetted by India China and the USA due to power rivalry and such are wooing the genocidal Sinhalese, whilst pretending to be concerned about the Eelam Tamil plight. That is India and the USA. China does on the other hand openly states that it cares two hoots about the Tamils or for that matter the Sinhalese just its power base.

one tamil in this forum is arguing what has append to tamils in sri lanka is a blessing in disguise that made them stronger. I am sure siva feels the same way. one thing is for sure, if what has happen to tamils in sri lanka has happen to my clan I will not even visit a forum like this to display the stupidity.

Believe it or not, at one stage sri lankan opposition leader, attorney general and the police commissioner were tamil.

If these idiots tamils thinks what has happen to them is a blessing in disguise they are not meant to survive.

Oh yes at one time all kings in the island, even the so called Sinhalese ones were Tamil. That is why the Kandyan convention handing the so called Sinhalese kingdom of Kandy to the British is largely signed in Tamil and not Sinhalese. We are not interested in one stage but what is happening now.

Prabhakaran had to rely on the idea of a Tamil kingdom that was purported to have existed in the north to push for Tamil Eelam. And it continues to remain central to some of the current political parties too for obvious reasons: their very survival depends on the claim that attracts votes.

But this has been disputed by eminent historians, among them Professor Karthigesu Indrapala of the Jaffna University, Mudliyar C. Rasanayagam, Bernard Gunatillake and a host of others. The available evidence in fact, suggests the contrary. As noted by Prof. S Ranwella if there had been an independent Tamil kingdom in and around the Jaffna peninsula in ancient times, at least a few Tamil inscriptions of those kings who ruled in that kingdom should have come to light in and around the Jaffna peninsula. But so far not a single Tamil inscription, or any other inscription testifying to it has been discovered.

It is interesting that the earliest Tamil inscription discovered in the Jaffna District is by a Sinhalese king, namely Parakramabahu I(1153-1186) who ruled at Polonnaruwa. This inscription was found at the entrance to the famous Nakapusani-Amman Temple in the small island now know as Nainativu or Nagadipa; and it contains certain trade regulations concerning wreckages off the port of Uratturai i.e. present day Kayts (UCR. Vol.XXI, pp.63-70). In the words of Dr. Karthigesu Indrapala, the editor of this inscription ‘the fact that this edict was issued not by any subordinate official, but by the king himself shows that the monarch was in supreme control of the northern most region of the island (UCR.Vo.XXI,p.66). A map of Yapanaya or Jaffanapatnam recently found in the Beeldbank National Archives, in the Netherlands done in 1695 had more than 85% off all villages with Sinhalese names[1].

We all know that you are a lying racist Sinhalese monkey in the pay of the Sri Lankan government to post copy and paste lies from Sinhalese extremist sites to state that Tamils do not belong to the land and should be killed or ethnically cleansed. Short and sweet that is all your posts are about. Cock and bull stories to justify the genocide. Just like what the Nazis did

The Sinhalese Nampota dated in its present form to the 14th or 15th century CE suggests that the whole of the Tamil Kingdom, including parts of the modern Trincomalee district, was recognised as a Tamil region by the name Demala-pattanama (Tamil city).[64] In this work, a number of villages that are now situated in the Jaffna, Mullaitivu and Trincomalee districts are mentioned as places in Demala-pattanama.[65]

Actually, thats exactly what he says. I have two versions of his diary. An older version written is older English. And a new revised version. Both state that the Tamils are not of the land but are malabars.

they also contain nice maps showing that the portuguese created geographical boundaries in the north to control the malabar poplulation seperately from the Kandyan Kingdom

Hello
Tamils are always lying.

"Besides the Dutch who possess, as I judg, about one fourth of the Island, there are Malabars (TAMIL KALLATHONI), that are free Denizons and pay duty to the King for the Land they enjoy, as the Kings natural Subjects do; there are also Moors, who are like Strangers, and hold no Land, but live by carrying goods to the Sea-Ports, which now are in the Hollanders hands. The Sea-Ports are inhabited by a mixt people, Malabars and Moors, and some that are black, who profess themselves Roman Catholicks, and wear Crosses, and use Beads. Some of these are under the Hollander; and pay toll and tribute to them.

But I am to speak only of the natural proper People of the Island, which they call Chingulays.

The Original of Chingulays.I have asked them, whence they derive themselves, but they could not tell. They say their Land was first inhabited by Devils, of which they have a long Fable. I have heard a tradition from some Portugueze here, which was; That an antient King of China had a Son, who during his Fathers Reign, proved so very harsh and cruel unto the people, that they being afraid he might prove a Tyrant if he came to the Crown, desired the King to banish him, and that he might never succeed. This that King, to please the people, granted. And so put him with certain Attendants into a ship, and turned them forth unto the Winds to seek their fortune. The first shore they were cast upon, was this Island. Which they seated themselves on, and peopled it. But to me nothing is more improbable than this Story. Because this people and the Chineses have no agreement nor similitude in their features nor language nor diet. It is more probable, they came from the Malabars, their Countrey lying next, tho they do resemble them little or nothing. I know no nation in the world do so exactly resemble the Chingulays as the people of Europe."
