Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"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

தமிழ் ஈழ விடுதலைப் போராட்டம் - ஓவியங்கள்

"War brings with it a particular social reality. Death, destruction and fear may prevail but so too does great courage and determined resistance. In war situations it is doubtful that anyone escapes without some effect on their perceptions of life. For some, the particular social reality generated in wartime conditions should be captured as a documentary record of the particularity of those times. These records form part of the cultural heritage of humanity, for they seek to tell the world of a particular human condition

Thus, literature, poetry, music, drama, drawings and paintings become the artistic mode for many people to record the various emotional and social aspects of wartime conditions. The medium of art can reflect the horror and agonies of brutal military oppression; works of art can depict courage, strength and the determination of resistance against oppression; works of art can express and inspire many emotions. Throughout Tamil Eelam, poetry has become the dominant mode of literary expression to convey the sentiments of the times. But many young people have used drawings and painting to express their perception of social reality under conditions of oppression and resistance..." (from the Voice of the Tigers,  the Official Bulletin of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, February 1990)
