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

Norwegian Peace Initiative

Excerpts from UNP Election Manifesto
Parliamentary General Election, 5 December 2001

"..Our prime objective is peace. We stand for peace and peace alone. All these years our opponents have ruthlessly and viciously misinterpreted our proposals to solve the national issue. We will end the war and build national unity. We will bring about a political solution acceptable to all those who are party to the crisis, within the framework of an undivided Sri Lanka. We will initiate this process with a warm heart and a cool head...

Once we come to power, we will initiate a dialogue with all political parties, the clergy, and civil society organisations, in order to arrive at a broad based political solution, acceptable to all. We will also involve the LTTE in the process. We will not introduce constitutional reforms until we have arrived at a political solution acceptable to the majority of all communities.

An interim administration will be set up for the northern and eastern provinces. We will appoint an independent commission to solve the problems of people who have been displaced and rendered helpless by war. This sensitive issue should be adequately discussed by all sections of civil society. We are aware of the acute suffering undergone by the people ofthe North and East on a daily basis, owing to the lack of tood, medicine, and other essentials. We also understand the strain that legitimate travellers have to undergo when visiting their lived ones. Once elected we will take immediate steps to make life easier for them."
