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

Thamil Tāyi -  தமிழ் தாய்

17 April 2006

"60 year old Somasuntharam Maheswary was knifed to death by Sinhala thugs in  Trincomalee on 15 April 2006. She was attending religious duties at Nadesar Temple when a group of Sinhala thugs  dragged her from the temple premises and cut her. Her body was later found on the road and handed over to the mortuary of the Trincomalee general hospital." - Sri Lanka State orchestrated violence raises spectre of 1983 pogrom says Tamil National Alliance


தமிழ்த் தாய் வாழ்த்து..

Haunted and hunted
There she lies in her mother soil
Knifed on the back�
Her blood spills on the ground
Murdered for the crime
Of being born a Thamil Tāyi

She falls kissing the soil
Alone; alone she dies
In the hands of the mob
It�s neither the gun nor the knife
Its racism that took her life!

She might be�
Some one�s mother or a sister
Or some one�s belov�d wife
She could even be a motherless child
But one thing for sure;

She�s a Thamil Tāyi.
Alone; in the midst of the crowd she dies


In the hands of racist cries
As a nameless Tāyi


For the world at large
She�s another fatality
A faceless �number�
In the nameless statistics

  Just another Human rights breach
Which is better not talked about

Because she is not part of
�The power bloc�
Hypocrisy�s mental block!

As she lies in her blood
She speaks to the world
Strips them bare naked;
Shames their corrupt conscience!

Mocks at the sold out �intellectuals�
And screwed up word smiths
Bought over for mere 30 pieces of silver

  Human rights! Human wrongs!
By her death silence�
She teaches the world
NOT to keep quiet
About the plight of the
Eelam Thamils

She lies in her mother soil
As a nameless Thamil Tāyi
