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

De Constructing Lakshman Kadirgamar �the best foreign minister the country ever had.�

"..Kadirgamar was not a tortured soul uncomfortable with Sinhala hegemony as well as Tiger militarism and wracked by shades of intellectual doubt as to where he belonged. He pitched his camp firmly among the forces interested in debilitating the self-respect and power-base of Tamils, hoping perhaps that eventually a rump Tamil leadership could come to some sort of accommodation with the Sinhalese. This is why after his death the Venerable Ellawela Medananda thero can call him �the best foreign minister the country ever had.�
