Tamils - a Nation without a State

"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

Month Ending October 2009

Tamil Nation Library: Nations & Nationalism

Nations & States - Hugh Seton-WatsonRevisited: Nations & States, Hugh Seton-Watson  - "The object of this book is to examine the processes by which nations have been formed, the types of political movements which have sought to achieve what has been considered to be the national purpose, and the ways in which such movements have influenced and been influenced by the internal policies of states and the relations of states with each other.

The distinction between states and nations is fundamental to my whole theme. States can exist without a nation, or with several nations, among their subjects; and a nation can be coterminous with the population of one state, or be included together with other nations within one state, or be divided between several states. There were states long before there were nations, and there are some nations that are much older than most states which exist today. The belief that every state is a nation, or that all sovereign states are national states, has done much to obfuscate human understanding of political realities. A state is a legal and political organisation, with the power to require obedience and loyalty from its citizens. A nation is a community of people, whose members are bound together by a sense of solidarity, a common culture, a national consciousness. Yet in the common usage of English and of other modern languages these two distinct relationships are frequently confused..." more

Song of the Week

"ஏன் என்ற கேள்வி - இங்கு
கேட்காமல் வாழ்க்கை இல்லை
நான் என்ற எண்ணம் - கொண்ட
மனிதன் வாழ்ந்ததில்லை...
பகுத்தறிவு பிறந்தததெல்லாம் கேள்விகள் கேட்டதனாலே
உரிமைகளைப் பெறுவதெல்லாம் உணர்ச்சிகள் உள்ளதினாலே...
வரும் காலத்திலே நம் பரம்பரைகள்
நாம் அடிமை இல்லை என்று முழங்கட்டுமே.."

Nations & Nationalism: What is a Nation?

1. "Nation building is rightly, though at times excessively, associated with political and social processes. Yet, it is not confined to national liberation movements, charismatic leaders and liberators, wars of national independence, and the struggle of national entities to emerge to independence from a position of relative powerlessness and subservience to a dominant power. Nations are as much cultural as political forms, and the creation of a unique high culture of world significance is often central to their legitimation. True, the effects of culture are not as clearly quantifiable as those of politics. The effect of  Verdi, for example, on Italian nationalism is hardly as clear cut as that of Garibaldi. Wagner's impact on German nationalism is amorphous alongside the concrete political achievement of Bismarck. William Butler Yeats' influence on Irish nationalism is not as definable as that of Michael Collins or Eamon De Valera. The inspiration of Chaim Nachman Bialik on Jewish nationalism is diffuse in comparison with that of Herzl.  Yet it may be argued justly that artists have equal if not greater importance. They above all express the nation's distinctiveness; their creativity is part of the momentum to independence; they are themselves symbols and icons of the nation's unique creative power; they regenerate their nation morally and speak for its heart and conscience." -  John Hutchinson, European Institute, London School of Economics and David Aberbach, Department of Jewish Studies, McGill University, Quebec, Canada in Nations & Nationalism, Volume 4, 1999

1.The Case of East Timor

 East Timor

Ten years since East Timor’s independence vote in 1999 - Patrick O’Connor  "By 2006, the first Timorese post-independence administration of Fretilin’s Mari Alkatiri was regarded as insufficiently compliant with Australian dictates and oriented too much towards Portugal and China. As a result, the Australian government launched a provocative regime change operation, dispatching another military intervention force.That the tenth anniversary celebrations of the 1999 referendum were being held yesterday (30 August 2009) while around 800 Australian and New Zealand soldiers remain stationed in East Timor - together with more than 1,000 mostly Portuguese and Malaysian UN police - underscores the reality of the country’s so-called independence."

Independence in the Brave New World Order: NATO's Kosovo Colony by Diana Johnstone. If we do not wish to become hostages to fortune, it is important that the Tamil people should take a principle centered approach and not an opportunistic approach to happenings in an asymmetric multi lateral world." more

Sachi Sri Kantha writes from Japan - S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike Assassination - Revisited after 50 yearsPart 3: Theatrics and Economics  Before I cover the theatrics and economics of two Sinhala Buddhist monks, Mapitigama Buddharakkhita Thero (1921-1967) and Talduwe Somarama Thero (1915-1962), I provide the complete text of this 1998 New York Times story for the benefit of those who had missed it, for its topical interest.

“The Dalai Lama’s administration acknowledged today that it had received $1.7 million a year in the 1960s from the Central Intelligence Agency, but denied reports that the Tibetan leader benefited personally from an annual subsidy of $180,000. The money allocated for the  resistance movement was spent on training volunteers and paying for guerrilla operations against the Chinese, the Tibetan government-in-exile said in a statement. It added that the subsidy earmarked for the Dalai Lama was spent on setting up offices in Geneva and New York and on international lobbying. The Dalai Lama, 63, a revered spiritual leader both in his Himalayan homeland and in Western nations, fled Tibet in 1959 after a failed uprising against a Chinese military occupation, which began in 1950. The decade-long covert program to support the Tibetan independence movement was part of the CIA’s worldwide effort to undermine Communist governments, particularly in the Soviet Union and China.” more

Field Notes on Democracy: Listening to GrasshoppersKashmir - a Revolt Against Indian Military Terror "... there are many ways for the Indian state to continue to hold on to Kashmir. It could do what it does best. Wait. And hope the peoples' energy will dissipate in the absence of a concrete plan. It could try and fracture the fragile coalition that is emerging. It could extinguish this nonviolent uprising and reinvite armed militancy. It could increase the number of troops from half a million to a whole million. A few strategic massacres, a couple of targeted assassinations, some disappearances, and a massive round of arrests should do the trick for a few more years... The Indian military occupation of Kashmir makes monsters of us all. It allows Hindu chauvinists to target and victimize Muslims in India by holding them hostage to the freedom struggle being waged by Muslims in Kashmir. It's all being stirred into a poisonous brew and administered intravenously, straight into our bloodstream. At the heart of it all is a moral question. Does any government have the right to take away peoples' liberty with military force? " more

India: An Empire in Denial


Maoist fighters training in Chattisgarh in central India in 2006

1.India's Counter Insurgency: A Civil War “Instead of addressing the source of the problem, the Indian state has decided to launch a military offensive: kill the poor and not the poverty, seems to be the implicit slogan of the Indian government... The millionaire population in India grew in 2007 by 22.6 per cent from the previous year, which is higher than in any other country in the world... (but) 80 percent of households have no access to safe drinking water. 77 percent spend less than 20 rupees a day. Only 42 percent houses have electricity. 93 percent of the work force (58 percent in agricultural sector) is of informal workers, lacking any employment security, work security and social security. Close to 60 percent of rural households are effectively landless. Between 1997 and 2007, 182,936 farmers committed suicide.” more
 
2. 'Calling Maoists 'mad Islamists' is not going to help' "The PM has said that the Maoist movement is India's gravest security threat . It suits the Maoists and the government to inflate the danger. It makes it easier to come down with all the force of your security apparatus. The inflation is mischievous . And it creates a situation in which every other kind of resistance is subsumed into this mad binary and dealt with as such. The most frightening thing is the criminalisation of the democratic space. You're either with us or against us. Bush is back, if he ever went away. " more

Reflection

"...Do we not deliberately obfuscate when we conflate the two words 'terrorism' and 'violence'? ... The Cuban revolution was violent but it was not terrorism. The war against Hitler was violent but it was not terrorism...What are the circumstances in which a people ruled by an alien people may lawfully resort to arms to resist that alien rule and secure freedom? Or is it that there are no circumstances in which a people ruled by an alien people may lawfully resort to arms to to liberate themselves? And if all resort to violence to secure political ends is not terrorism, then what is terrorism? ..to categorise a combatant in an armed conflict as a 'terrorist' organisation and seek to punish it on that basis, is to.. assert in effect that  a people ruled by an alien people may not, as a last resort,  lawfully resort to arms to resist that alien rule and secure freedom...

Stine Bruland S�rensenNationalism turns all Tamils into family says anthropologist, Stine Bruland S�rensen  "The conflict in Sri Lanka has scattered parents, children, aunts, uncles, and cousins who used to lived together to diverse places in Europe, Asia, Canada, the United States, and Australia. The struggle for a Tamil nation helps the families create a new home for themselves in the diaspora, says Stine Bruland S�rensen in her Master's thesis at Oslo University' Nationalism turns all Tamils into family... 'Having a sense of nationalism toward the home country is an important part of a creating a home, in order to feel at home or settled in, It is vital for the parents to create a family history and continuity of their own life in the diaspora. Traditionally, a sense of belonging in the family has provided Tamils with a sense of belonging among relatives, village, and a place in the cosmos. Akam, or inclusion into these levels of belonging is considered to be the ideal that maintains the cosmological order and ensures a persons wellbeing. Being situated outside of these affiliations is thereby feared and considered to bring about tosam (loneliness) and puram (chaos)' " more

Nation Work: Asian Elites and National Identities edited by Timothy Brook and Andre Schmid - Chapter on Discourses of Empowerment: Missionary Orientalism in the Development of Dravidian Nationalism by V.Ravindran, Ph.D. University of Toronto - "Dravidian nationalism began gaining momentum in South India at the beginning of the twentieth century in opposition to the dominant discourse of Indian nationalism. Its emergence affords a significant example not only of the complicity of missionary orientalism in the process of identity construction and nationalism in South India but, more importantly, of its role in empowering subordinate groups or communities there. Ideologically, Dravidian nationalism posited a parallel but counter discourse to the dominant "orientalist" construction of India as Aryan and Sanskritic." more

Rethinking Transnational Cinema: The Case of Tamil Cinema, Vijay Devadas" - Tamil cinema articulates, mobilises and dismantles the hegemonic conception of the postcolonial Indian nation as fostered by the apparatus of the nation-state through an appeal to a sense of Tamil cultural nationalism that is antagonistic to the national imaginary. The point here on the intimacy of the media form to the production and circulation of a sense of (antagonistic) cultural nationalism is precise: Tamil cinema, in particular, has had a central role in the postcolonial re-construction of the nation and national identity..."  more
