"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 !."

"..New Delhi may want to recognise that given the emerging bi polar world, and given the strategic significance of the Indian Ocean region to both the US and China,  New Delhi  may be powerless to prevent 'countries like Pakistan and China gaining a strategic foothold in the island nation'. .. Again,  even if India's Sonia Gandhi-Manmohan Singh administration is content to play the US client role, this may not have the support of  large segments of the Indian polity - more so in an election year. Given an emerging bi polar world, India may go back to its old 'non aligned' foreign policy approach and at the same time strengthen its links with its old friend, Russia. It is an approach that for instance will have the support of the Communist Party of India... And in relation to the conflict in the island of Sri Lanka...New Delhi may want to recognise .. that India's  strategic interests in an emerging bi polar world may be best served by the creation of an independent Tamil Eelam rather than by preventing its formation.''  - Nadesan Satyendra in  US - India - China: Changing Dynamics  & an Emerging Bi Polar World

Sathyam Commentary

1.  Nadesan Satyendra  on The Politics of Humanitarian Intervention "The Sinhala owned Sri Lanka Sunday Times reported on 22 February that the donor Co-Chairs are working out a coalition humanitarian task force spearheaded by the United States, to evacuate civilians trapped in the fighting in the Vanni.  It said  - "The purpose will be purely to facilitate the movement of civilians from the northeastern coast to a ship in the deep seas. This is for transfer to Internally Displaced Person (IDP) centres or hospitals outside the battle zones."  The proposed transfer to IDP centres may need to be understood in the context of the London Daily Telegraph report of 13 February 2009  "The Sri Lankan government has been denounced over plans to forcibly detain thousands of Tamil civilians fleeing the country's civil war in "concentration camps". Officials have confirmed they will establish several "welfare villages" to house the estimated 200,000 Tamils displaced from their homes by the Sri Lankan army's "final offensive" against the LTTE's stronghold on the north of the Island. Senior officials have however confirmed that those housed in the villages will have no choice on whether to stay in the camps." It appears that what I wrote three weeks ago in 'Sinhala Sri Lanka's  Genocide of Eelam Tamils - a Crime Against Humanity', is now coming to pass -

"...the international community will wait till Tamil resistance is sufficiently weakened or  annihilated before it attempts to intervene 'on humanitarian grounds' and in seeming response to 'world wide Tamil appeals'.  Meanwhile the IC will even welcome such world wide appeals by Tamils as that will pave the way (and establish useful contact points amongst the Tamil diaspora) for IC's eventual intervention with 'development aid' with the mantra of not conflict resolution but 'conflict transformation'." more

"In 1983, I stumbled into a lecture on International Relations at Cambridge University. The lecture was by a visting German Professor. I forget her name. But something that she said has remained with me over the past several years. She said: 'History shows that a bi polar world will eventually become a uni polar world. Then the uni polar world will give way to a multi polar world. Out of the multipolar world will come a new bi polar world. And then that bipolar world will give way to another unipolar world and so on'. " more

1. Ten Minute Read - Nadesan Satyendra  A Visitor from Australia wrote on 20 February 2009 - Vanakkam Mr. Satyendra.  I read your articles almost as soon as they appear. They reflect many of the thoughts which come to me (but perhaps not in such a clear substantiated fashion). Your open letter to Senator Kerry is another excellent piece. I am in deep pain and I am saddened to see in our demonstrations many are still talking and shouting about 'feed and save' - its the call of  'pichhai vendam nayaipidi' -  as if demanding our right to self determination was pichhai.  Some have woken up to what you have been saying.  But some who are interested have sadly said that your articles are too long for them and too complicated. What to do?  We are all in the age of 3 minute news clips and we do not want  to engage our intellectual faculties. May be sometimes a short piece (10 minute read) directed to our English educated youth in the diaspora might help to focus their minds. Sorry for asking this. Thanks. more
2. Recent Developments in Sri Lanka':US Senate Hearing - An Open Letter to Senator Kerry, Chairman, US Senate Foreign Relations Committee - Nadesan Satyendra

Senator Kerry

"... the Senate Foreign Relations Committee may want to examine whether US  strategic interests in an emerging multi lateral world and in particular in the Indian Ocean region will be advanced by preventing the emergence of new states or whether, on the contrary,  US strategic interests will be furthered by recognising that self determination is not a destabilising concept.  Central governments of existing states may have the power that flows from the barrel of the gun, but a feeling or thought such as democracy, the aspiration towards liberty, is not without material force. . If democracy means the rule of the people, by the people, for the people, then the principle of self determination secures that no one people may rule another - and herein lies its enduring appeal. Steadfastly defending the inviolability of territorial boundaries of existing states, regardless of how and when they were determined may not be the path to a stable world order. There is a need to defend the very real values that a people stand for and speak from the heart to the hearts of those people. These are the values which the Obama administration has pledged to uphold.  And it was for these values that more than two hundred years ago, the signatories of the US Declaration of Independence suffered - and some paid the ultimate price... It is for those same values that tens of thousands of Tamils both young and old have fought and  given their lives. They have given their lives so that their brothers and sisters may live in freedom - freedom from rule by a permanent alien Sinhala majority within the confines of a single state.. Said that, the struggle for Tamil Eelam is not about a search for historical first causes - a search that will end in the stone age and in a discussion about original sin. Neither is the struggle for Tamil Eelam an invitation to engage in the politics of the last atrocity.  Nor is the struggle for an independent Tamil Eelam about what the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam may have done or may not have done - though I together with millions of Tamils not only in Tamil Eelam but also in many lands and across distant seas will bow our heads in all humility and continue to recognise Velupillai Pirabakaran and the LTTE (warts and all) as the undying symbols of Tamil resistance to alien Sinhala rule...  " more

Sri Lanka's Genocide: President Rajapaksa's Horrific War Crime:   Murder Tamils and  Incarcerate those Tamils who escape in Concentration Camps 

" It is with some hesitation that we publish these photographs of Sri Lanka's Genocidal onslaught on the people of Tamil Eelam - photographs which may offend the sensibility of many. But the brutal nature of Sinhala Sri Lanka's continuing genocidal onslaught on the people of Tamil Eelam must be exposed.  Jean Paul Sartre was right when he declared in 1967 that  'against partisans backed by the entire population, (occupying) colonial armies have only one way of escaping from the harassment which demoralizes them.... This is to eliminate the civilian population. As it is the unity of a whole people that is containing the conventional army, the only  anti-guerrilla strategy which will be effective is the destruction of that people, in other words, the civilians, women and children...'   Each picture speaks a thousand words and exposes not only the horrific war crimes committed by President Rajapaksa and the Sinhala forces under his command but taken together they also  reflect the political reality that it is the unity of the entire population of Tamil Eelam in their struggle for freedom from alien Sinhala rule, that has led the Sinhala regime to believe that  'the only  anti-guerrilla strategy which will be effective is the destruction of that people, in other words, the civilians, women and children...' President Rajapaksa and his ruling coterie may believe that they are being effective but they have fanned the flames of an enduring and deep rooted anger and resentment amongst more than 70 million Tamils living in many lands. The Sinhala rulers may believe that they are clearing the 'swamp' but the political reality that will confront them sooner rather than later is that they have only created new ones. The self immolation of Muthukumar in Tamil Nadu and Murukuthasan before the UN headquarters in Geneva are proof enough of that.." more

"Where national memories are concerned, griefs are of more value than triumphs, for they impose duties, and require a common effort. A nation is therefore a large-scale solidarity, constituted by the feeling of the sacrifices that one has made in the past and of those that one is prepared to make in the future. "

He excluded Hamas leaders from his phone tree, although they had won the 2006 election to represent the people of Gaza. Obviously, Hamas has also won the label "terrorist" and, as Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni proudly if not smugly assured members of the National Press Club in Washington DC, Israel would not talk with Hamas. 'We do not negotiate with terrorists," she asserted, moral indignation dripping from her words. (January 16)..Her father, Eitan Livni, proudly served as chief operations officer of the Irgun, a right wing Zionist gang that in the post 1945 period sent letter bombs to the British occupying authorities and in 1946 blew up the King David hotel in Jerusalem. .. "...If President Obama's inner sensitivities correspond to what the world witnessed on January 20 as his external sensibilities, he too will recoil from "terrorist" rhetoric and also reject the angelic facade that fits Israel like a fine leather glove on the hoof of a pig. "Change is coming in the Middle East as it is in the United States," Obama might tell Israeli leaders, "and Washington will play a role over there. So make the necessary concessions to facilitate a viable Palestinian state. And include Hamas -- or else!.." more

I don�t see any reason in their censoring logic. Why should it be stopped? Because, it badly hurts Indian sentiments and rapprochement of Indian mandarins and power prigs in New Delhi towards the cause of Eelam Tamils. Or is it because, what happened two decades ago were so nasty and deserves to be hidden? .For these Indo-philes, my answer is that, first I�m neither creating nor distorting the events that unfolded between July 1987 and March 1990. If the Indian sentiments are bound to be hurt let it be; it is time that they learn from their own mistakes... .." more

On Monday, after calling on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and separately meeting Congress president Sonia Gandhi in New Delhi, Karunanidhi revealed to reporters what he had told Thondaman: "The central government's policy (on Sri Lanka) will be the state government's policy."..." together with Comment by tamilnation.org  also three years ago: "Despite appearances to the contrary, Chief Minister Muthuvel Karunanidhi's policies in relation to the struggle for Tamil Eelam have always been within the frame work of New Delhi's policies - and therefore Mr.Karunanidhi  has not said anything new... The genocidal attacks launched by Sri Lanka on the people of Tamil Eelam should be self evident except to those who would prefer to close their eyes. When the history of Tamil Eelam comes to be written (as surely it will), the question will be asked: where was the Dravidian leader, Muthuvel Karunanidhi?  And history will, no doubt,  provide a fair answer - he was minding his own 'business'.  more

Sathyam Commentary

The Jeff & Mutt Act - Nadesan Satyendra "...The Jeff and Mutt act is also sometimes called the 'Good Cop, Bad Cop' role play. And given the recent Mutt like call by Norway, US, EU & Japan  for the  LTTE to surrender so that Vanni civilians may be saved from Sri Lanka's genocidal onslaught, it may be helpful to examine some features of the Jeff and Mutt role play adopted by international actors in relation to the conflict in the island of Sri Lanka... It seems that the trilaterals (US, EU & Japan)  having waited till Tamil resistance is 'sufficiently weakened' are now concerned to pressure Sri Lanka to fall in line with their own strategic interests in the Indian Ocean region... To put it shortly and I believe fairly: the self serving nature of the Jeff and Mutt Act by the so called 'international community'  stands exposed because whilst Mutt calls for surrender to the Sinhala genocidal forces and Jeff  is ready to cry 'war crime' against the actions of those Sinhala genocidal forces,  neither Jeff nor Mutt  is as yet  prepared to cry 'freedom for Tamil Eelam'. But for the Tamil people, though the charge is genocide, the struggle was and is for freedom - freedom from alien Sinhala rule."

Michael Collins - Commander iRA1921 Anglo-Irish Treaty & Michael Collins together with Comment by tamilnation.org  "During the uneasy peace of the Norwegian sponsored Negotiation Process, a Tamil Eelam expatriate visited the Vanni. At that time he had the opportunity to meet with Tamil Eelam leader Velupillai Pirabakaran. At one stage, Pirabakaran had reportedly asked the visitor: 'Have you seen the film Michael Collins?'.  The visitor replied in the negative. Pirabakaran had replied: 'You should'. The visitor was puzzled. The visitor  had not even known who Michael Collins was. We ourselves do not claim to know what the Tamil Eelam leader  may have had in mind. But, what we do know is that Michael Collins' role in the Anglo Irish negotiations which culminated in the 1921 Anglo Irish Treaty is a lesson from history from which we can all learn...  In 1921, Eamon de Valera, the Irish leader knew that the British would not grant independence to Ireland and that, at that time, the IRA lacked the fire power to oust the British armed forces from Ireland. It is said that de Valera decided not to go to the talks in London but cajoled  Collins  to go. Collins eventually consented but he knew that  he was committing  political suicide by agreeing to lead the negotiations.  Later, when asked whether he had signed the Anglo Irish Treaty under duress, Collins response was that he did not sign the Treaty under duress, but that  'the element of duress was present when we agreed to the Truce, because our simple right would have been to beat the English out of Ireland. There was an element of duress in going to London to negotiate.'... more

Sinhala Sri Lanka's  Genocide of Eelam Tamils  - a Crime Against Humanity... - Nadesan Satyendra  "The question is being asked by some: why is the international community which was willing to arm Sri Lanka and to ban the LTTE, unwilling and/or unable  to prevent the genocide of Eelam Tamils?  Suffering is a great teacher and the Tamil people are being taught that for the governments of the so called IC, human rights and humanitarian law are but useful instruments to advance their political and strategic interests.  ... the international community will wait till Tamil resistance is sufficiently weakened or  annihilated before it attempts to intervene 'on humanitarian grounds' and in seeming response to 'world wide Tamil appeals'.  Meanwhile the IC will even welcome such world wide appeals by Tamils as that will pave the way (and establish useful contact points amongst the Tamil diaspora) for IC's eventual intervention with 'development aid' with the mantra of not conflict resolution but 'conflict transformation'.

C.N.Annadurai Statue in Coimbatore"India is a sub continent; it should be divided into a number of countries. The continent of Europe has 32 independent countries. No one argues that it should be a single country ruled by a single government. Similarly there is no need for India to be under a single government... Aryan influence increases within a single country called India. Welfare of the other races is crushed under Aryan rule. Uniting different races (nations) under a single country leads to rebellions and troubles. In order to prevent such troubles and bloodshed in India, we should divide India according to racial (national) lines now... Even during the days of the emperors Ashoka, Kanishkar, Samudra Gupta and Akbar, India was not a single country.

If India is divided into many countries, each country could develop its economy according to its circumstances. It would also put an end to one region robbing the resources of another. All races (nations) can achieve equality only if each race (nation) has its own country and government. We fear the thought of one race (nation) living under the rule of another. This fear gives birth to violent rebellion. It is necessary to divide India racially (nationally) to prevent such violent revolutions. The reason one race (nation) has not choked another race (nation) to death in India so far is the British guns. When the British leave, India will become a killing field [unless it is divided into different countries on racial (national) basis]."

"I went to Muthukumar�s funeral Saturday, and though I paid my homage, I never had the courage to look at his face. It was not because I am against curiousity of any kind, it is just that, I couldn�t get the nerve. Since Thursday, I must have read his last letter at least ten times, until I could no longer bear to reread it. Or perhaps, I knew its contents by heart, by then. And every time I read, I cried. It is sad to think that someone wrote so much, so powerfully and then went on to print it, and then go to Shastri bhavan and set himself on fire.  And he was woefully young and talented. And sharp and critical and brutally frank.  I was all the while reminded only of Kasi Anandan ayya�s short poem Poraali (Fighter) You cry/ For the dying. He dies/ For the crying." more

Like you I am also one of the countless Tamils who have been unable to eat or sleep.Senth Thamizh Nadu has given life to those who have come to it, but our blood relations in Eelam are dying. When we raise our voices and call for an end to this killing, the Indian imperial government says neither yes nor no and grows silent. If the Indian government�s war is just, then it should engage in that war openly. Why does it do it in secret and with deceit?..Tamil Eelam is not the need of Tamil Eelam alone, it is the need of Tamil Nadu also... Dear Tamil people, in the struggle against injustice our brothers and children (in Tamil Nadu) have taken up the weapon of the intellect. I have used the weapon of life.
