    Karthik, everyday I read your blog, so please do not stop posting.
    My animosity for India has increased since that day the Tamil leader was killed. My parents are from Eelam, whilst I was born here in London, Britain. I cannot continue my daily routines well enough, because all I dream and think about is the great injustices done to our people. Never before have I felt so oppressed than when I saw on television channels here in the west the bombing of the Tamil north.
    Your blog is one of the few blogs that is Tamil homeland related. I hope you will encourage others to write and you yourself would publish more.
    The first thing that we Tamils need to do is learn to be Jewish. That is we must extend our hand to one another and get to know each other well. We should stop being selfish and start to be selfless. The transnational movement by the Tamil Diaspora is a good start, but we need to do more.

      Thank you for your encouragement Jez.

      It is pressing times for all of us, but we need to fight it out together. Thats what matters – to never lose hope and to never cease fighting. And yes, we dont need to learn to be Jewish (I do hope you werent referring to the Zionists) to help each other. Being good Tamils is good enough and learning to be sensitive to the suffering of others is better.

    Rightly said my friend! We don’t need to be Jewish. We are Thamils and we will continue to live like Thamils. Our forefathers left a great legacy, tons of things to read, educate, entertain, enrich our knowledge. We need to learn and we will. The recent events that happened to our people in the north and east made many people to seriously think about who they are, where they are, who they are fighting against. It is greatest relaization at a heavy cost. Will we learn? yes we will! – your blog is the best example! Believe me – youths like Jez really understood who they are and what is their forefathers history. It is definitely a turn, as a good people it made us think hard. Best proof – There are many people openly comeforward and talk about who we are! Many started loving the language and understood its importance.

    I happened to read your article ‘In defence of the LTTE tradition’ on Sanhati. It was very interesting in terms of its scope and perspective. On googling for more of your articles, I came across your blog. Very happy to see it since Tamil Eelam seems to be a dim memory on the public imagination already. I have linked your blog in my favourites on my blog …. http://geetacharusivam.blogspot.in/. Hope you don’t mind.

    Thank you for your posts. I am from Madras (now Chennai) in India. The most widely circulated English newspaper in India , ‘The Hindu” recently published an account (feb-2013) with pictures of the murder of Prabhakarans son, I wept after reading it and if you read the comments section, thousands of Tamils in Tamil nadu wept like me. I am extremely well educated, live and work in the US, a third degree black belt, in excellent physical shape six foot one and felt absolutely impotent on the genocide that was perpetuated on the Sri Lankan Tamils. However after spending about 72 hours reading about the entire history of Sri lanka, I am aghast and ashamed at my country’s lack of will and wisdom in not protecting the innocent. Keep up the good work and do post often as the world needs to know of these atrocities against our brothers and sisters.

    I’m a Tamilian and I fully support the cause of Eezham. That being said I have a slight displeasure of seeing you support the Kashmiri/ North East movements on the superficial principal of them being the same as Eezham since those places now have extensive cultural and political autonomy and are not subject to cultural hegemony from India state unlike eezham which is suffering under the jackboot of the singalas.

    Coming to this blog, one thing I absolutely agreed was the need to remove the Dravidian and give emphasis to the Tamilian nationalism as a bulwark against exploitation of imperial powers like the sinhalas.. Whether this will transalate into reality, anda Tamizh kadavul Karthikeyan thaan mudivu pannanum.

      Hi Karthic,

      I, personally, have not said that Kashmir and North-East are the same as Tamil Eelam. I have expressed some opinions and analysis on those issues, but they are rather fluid as I am not an expert in those cases.
