Looking East at Independence
The setting, Trincomalee was symbolic. Around 10
years ago, a fisherman had pointed out to me a leveled strip of
Sampur where he said the TNA had declared as the future Parliament
of Tamil Eelam. It was here in the LTTE’s Pongu Tamil celebration
that Catholic priests were pictured provocatively marking out the
future boundaries of Tamil Eelam.

History, harping, and Muslims
Third Response to Shenali Waduge:
This halaal certificate affair keeps coming up
in Shenali Waduge’s every argument, despite the fact that I
explained this in my very first response. So I am compelled to
repeat myself. The halaal issue popped up when non-Muslim
restaurants like McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and KFC opened shop here.
