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

Selected Writings - Dr. Chelvadurai Manogaran

Chelvadurai Manogaran received his early education in SriLanka, an M.A. from Clark University in Massachusetts, and his PH.D. from Southern Illinois University. He served as Associate Professor of Geography and International Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside,

"..With the passing away of Prof. Manogaran in August 2001, the Tamil people had lost yet another Tamil intellectual who strode like a colossus among scholars. He took an abiding interest in the liberation struggle of the people of Tamil Eelam. He used his scholarship and erudition to espouse the cause of Tamil Eelam effectively and in his own inimitable style. It will be difficult to fill the void left by Prof. Manogaran who was one of the few outstanding scholars of the pre-1956 era..." - V.Thangavelu on Chelvadurai Manogaran - a Doyen among Tamil scholars

Ethnic Conflict and Reconciliation in Sri Lanka

Book Note by Sachi Sri Kantha - The author states in his preface, why he wrote this book; �There has been no comprehensive study by geographers of the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka which has been partially caused by the inability of a community to preserve and develop a well-defined geographical region considered to be its traditional homeland. My aim has been to analyze among other factors the geographical determinants of the conflict, especially those dealing with the allocation of water on a spatial basis for agricultural development and land settlement.� Of the five chapters which makes the book, the third chapter entitled, �Tamil Districts: Conflict over Traditional Homelands, Colonization and Agricultural Development� is a valuable one.
