We salute you dearest President for putting an end to the misery for
decades which Sri Lankan people went through with pain and anger and not
to mention the helplessness.
I am sure the mindful Tamil community will be believed to see this
and assist the Government and the people who want to rebuild the nation
once and for all.
May the Triple Gem bless our Mother Lanka.
Due to the inspiring leadership of the President with unity of his
brothers and the painstaking efforts of the gallant soldiers, much
needed peace has dawned in Sri Lanka.
I am a medical practitioner at the Ragama Hospital and was an
eyewitness recently of a sad plight of a sick and old mother of two
slain soldiers, who collapsed due to a long wait in an OPD queue.
For avoiding such incidents faced by the next of kin of the soldiers
who sacrificed their valuable lives and disabled themselves for the sake
of their Motherland, if an Identity Card could be issued by the health
authorities to obtain medical facilities from the Government hospitals
for their next of kins, it will be much appreciated.
Oh! Heroic sons of Lanka,
You've liberated our Motherland
From the grip of terror and
Brought honour and dignity to the Nation.
Now we are One Country and One Nation.
No words to praise you for your courage and bravery.
The most humanitarian Army in the world'
You fought with guns in your hands
But love and affection in your hearts.
Three decades of sorrow and agony
Vanished from hearts.
A new era has dawned
For us to breathe the fresh air of Freedom.
A day will dawn for us to rejoice once again.
Now let's extend our hands of friendship
To our brethren of the North who need love and affection.
When will Ruhunu Kumari of the South meet
Yaldevi of the North?
Let's count for that happiest day
To exchange our warmest greetings of
Aayubowan with Wanakkam.
Well done Sons!... Well done!
It is surprising to find that over 9,000 terrorists captured by Armed
Forces remain to be rehabilitated to become the patriots of united Sri
My suggestion is that the Government should appoint a Board of
Consultants from veteran educationists - psychologists -
psychotherapists - humanitarians - of multi-religious and linguistic
groups - Tamils - Muslims and the Sinhalese. These experienced scholars
and medical professionals should be assigned with the project.
In fact, though these captives are silent under the power of the
Armed Forces, they will not easily change their minds already poisoned
by Prabhakaran and his hard core team.
Hence, the psychologists can approach each one of the captives
personally and do away with or apply anti-dote technique of changing the
traits of the poisoned mind. The theory of Tamil homeland must be
changed as that of Sri Lankan homeland by psychological methods.
Sri Lankans all, were celebrating
the crushing defeat of
the most ruthless terrorist gang
that devastated our Motherland
for nearly three decades
People in the deep South, in the Central Hills,
the newly liberated people in the East and Mannar
and Northern Jaffna and Vavuniya
were joining hands with the
jubilant city dwellers of Colombo
in welcoming the freedom from terror
Thousands and thousands of lion flags
up in the skies all over the island
were heralding the dawn of
the eve of peace and harmony
sans the deadly terror of human bombs and gunfire
Streets in the cities, towns and suburbs
were flooded with feasting Sri Lankans
sharing the traditional Kiribath and sweet meats
with all around - known and unknown
The sounds of the fire crackers,
the rhythm of the rabana music
displayed by the enthusiastic crowds
were reaching sky high
up to the heavens
Generations to come will be celebrating
this day of victory May 18, 2009
which will be recorded in the new chapter of 'Mahavansa'
'the day Mahinda - the great ruler from 'Ruhuna'
with his able General and Heroic Forces
restored the sovereignty and the territorial integrity
of our motherland'
First and foremost, I wish to convey my gratitude to your press for
having played a vital role in the defeat of ruthless terrorism from the
books under the able and dynamic leadership of the President and the
The cancer called terrorism has been destroyed with peace and harmony
dawning in the nation. Now the public has no fear in their mind to walk
freely in any part of the island and can return home peacefully by
attending to their day to day activities.
Now the time has come for all communities to unite and rebuild Sri
Lanka irrespective of politics, cast, creed and race. Everyday people
Therefore, let us open our eyes and give our fullest co-operation and
support to the Government to rebuild Sri Lanka and specially the IDPs
who are at the camps to be looked after up to their expectations and the
Government should not keep any room for complains and shortcomings from
any source and see that all are treated equally because thirst and
hunger is the same for every human being.
Furthermore, the Government should now gradually remove the barriers,
check points and roads that are made one way for travelling which has
caused a lot of inconvenience to the public. Thereby the masses will
enjoy travelling freely.
The people have placed a lot of confidence in the Government and now
it is the duty of all the Ministries and State Sectors to work hard
genuinely in order to prove and show the public that they are really
devoting towards the needs of the people and all should be treated as
Sri Lankans and not as minorities.
In conclusion, I say we should try to win the hearts of the
international countries, organizations and our relationship to be
maintained as it is in the past.
United we stand - devided we fall
