He was a Harvard professor and was in his forties.He died of pancreatic cancer in 2008, but wrote a book ˜The last lecture” , one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind.

In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan , and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "guide to a better life" for them to follow.
May you be blessed by his insight.


1. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
2. Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
3. Don't over do; keep your limits
4. Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does
5. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip
6. Dream more while you are awake
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
8. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
10. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.
Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
13. Smile and laugh more
14. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

15. Call your family often
16. Each day give something good to others
17. Forgive everyone for everything
18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6
19. Try to make at least three people smile each day
20. What other people think of you is none of your business
21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.
23. GOD heals everything
24. Do the right things
25. However good or bad a situation is, it will change
26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up
27. The best is yet to come
28. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful
29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it
30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy.

While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you school with,
people you play with, people you work with and people you live with.
Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you.

NORTH-EAST DEVELOMENT BANK : Pathway to Prosperity for Tamils..!!!

|worldclasstamil.com Moderator to Massey

Pathway to Prosperity for Tamils

Tamil National alliance must insist on the formation of an independent North East Development Bank. And, it is for the Singhalese to allow Tamils to mind their own business, that way no Singhalese cannot claim that the Tamils are alienating the Singhalese people and their economy.

We have been saying this since 1970 to the Singhalese, let us develop our own economy but the Singhalese establishment was not in favour of it they were against it. If the Singhalese think that they are mighty because of the their number we will find an equalizer, but if they want us to recognize their uniqueness we will be very much delighted to uphold their heritage but if you want to impose upon us it will never work and it never worked in the history.

What the Singhalese must understand is that they cannot put a lid on the fire of freedom, man is born with it, and secondly no man can deny another man his rights without losing his rights. In the last 60 years what happened to the Singhalese masses is the proof of it, where as Tamils go out and got ahead. May be they used intimidation and violence against the Tamils in Sri Lanka but Tamils are regrouping outside by brining Tamil all over the world.

Therefore the Singhalese in their own interest must let the Tamil mind their own business. May be the geopolitical situation is in their own favour but that it not for too long. We are going to convince India and China that their investments and interests will be better served by aligning with the Tamils.

It is not a warning but it is human nature that the Tamils are going to figure out a way to regain their freedom, there is nothing Singhalese, India or China can do anything about it. Number alone does not confer any absolute advantage (Sun Tzu). Allies won the war not with huge military but with one weapon, one night and one man (Opphenheimer)
Sri Lankan is a small island and surrounded by water, whatever advantage it gives, it is also gives the equal disadvantage, the difference the way it is configured.

Do the Singhalese want to live in constant fear or do they want to make peace with the Tamils. Kavantissa ( Am I right?) told Dutta Gemunu not war with the Tamils that was 2553 years ago but he did, he won the war but the Tamils lived on. The fundamental is man is a free animal no one can deny that desire. If the Singhalese do not learn this after 2500 years they will never learn. they don’t know freedom either, eternally they live in constant fear and poverty.

When someone hurts us......!!!

K Arulnithy

It’s really a nice lesson…take time to read as I did…

A story tells that two friends

were walking

through the desert

During some point of the

Journey they had an

Argument, and one friend

Slapped the other one

In the face.

The one who got slapped

was hurt, but without

saying anything,

wrote in the sand:



They kept on walking

until they found an oasis,

where they decided

to take a bath.

The one who had been

slapped got stuck in the

mire and started drowning,

but the friend saved him.

After he recovered from

the near drowning,

he wrote on a stone:



The friend who had slapped

and saved his best friend

asked him, "After I hurt you,

you wrote in the sand and now,

you write on a stone, why?"

The other friend replied

"When someone hurts us

we should write it down

in sand where winds of

forgiveness can erase it away.

But, when someone does

something good for us,

we must engrave it in stone

where no wind

can ever erase it."






They say it takes a

minute to find a special

person, an hour to

appreciate them, a day

to love them, but then

an entire life

to forget them.

Send this phrase to

the people you'll never

forget. If you don't

send it to anyone,

it means you're in a

hurry and that you've

forgotten your friends.

Take the time to live!

Do not value the THINGS

you have in your life. But value

WHO you have in your life!

" Happiness is not something you find, it's something you create…"

A Chinese proverb: Do not judge a man until his coffin is closed..!!!

Ma-Ra-Na-Tha – and that Chinese proverb "Don"t judge a man until the coffin is closed"
Days of reflection...Lee Kuan Yew

September 18, 2010, 12:00 pm



"SO, when is the last leaf falling?" asked Lee Kuan Yew, the man who made Singapore in his own stern and unsentimental image, nearing his 87th birthday and contemplating age, infirmity and loss.

"I can feel the gradual decline of energy and vitality," said Mr. Lee, whose "Singapore model" of economic growth and tight social control made him one of the most influential political figures of Asia. "And I mean generally, every year, when you know you are not on the same level as last year. But that’s life."

In a long, unusually reflective interview last week, he talked about the aches and pains of age and the solace of meditation, about his struggle to build a thriving nation on this resource-poor island, and his concern that the next generation might take his achievements for granted and let them slip away.

He was dressed informally in a windbreaker and running shoes in his big, bright office, still sharp of mind but visibly older and a little stooped, no longer in day-to-day control but, for as long as he lives, the dominant figure of the nation he created.

But in these final years, he said, his life has been darkened by the illness of his wife and companion of 61 years, bedridden and mute after a series of strokes.

"I try to busy myself," he said, "but from time to time in idle moments, my mind goes back to the happy days we were up and about together." Agnostic and pragmatic in his approach to life, he spoke with something like envy of people who find strength and solace in religion. "How do I comfort myself?" he asked. "Well, I say, ‘Life is just like that.’ "

"What is next, I do not know," he said. "Nobody has ever come back."

The prime minister of Singapore from its founding in 1965 until he stepped aside in 1990, Mr. Lee built what he called "a first-world oasis in a third-world region" — praised for the efficiency and incorruptibility of his rule but accused by human rights groups of limiting political freedoms and intimidating opponents through libel suits.

His title now is minister mentor, a powerful presence within the current government led by his son, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. The question that hovers over Singapore today is how long and in what form his model may endure once he is gone.

Always physically vigorous, Mr. Lee combats the decline of age with a regimen of swimming, cycling and massage and, perhaps more important, an hour-by-hour daily schedule of meetings, speeches and conferences both in Singapore and overseas. "I know if I rest, I’ll slide downhill fast," he said. When, after an hour, talk shifted from introspection to geopolitics, the years seemed to slip away and he grew vigorous and forceful, his worldview still wide ranging, detailed and commanding.

And yet, he said, he sometimes takes an oblique look at these struggles against age and sees what he calls "the absurdity of it."

"I’m reaching 87, trying to keep fit, presenting a vigorous figure, and it’s an effort, and is it worth the effort?" he said. "I laugh at myself trying to keep a bold front. It’s become my habit. I just carry on."

HIS most difficult moments come at the end of each day, he said, as he sits by the bedside of his wife, Kwa Geok Choo, 89, who has been unable to move or speak for more than two years. She had been by his side, a confidante and counselor, since they were law students in London.

"She understands when I talk to her, which I do every night," he said. "She keeps awake for me; I tell her about my day’s work, read her favorite poems." He opened a big spreadsheet to show his reading list, books by Jane Austen, Rudyard Kipling and Lewis Carroll as well as the sonnets of Shakespeare.

Lately, he said, he had been looking at Christian marriage vows and was drawn to the words: "To love, to hold and to cherish, in sickness and in health, for better or for worse till death do us part."

"I told her, ‘I would try and keep you company for as long as I can.’ That’s life. She understood." But he also said: "I’m not sure who’s going first, whether she or me."

At night, hearing the sounds of his wife’s discomfort in the next room, he said, he calms himself with 20 minutes of meditation, reciting a mantra he was taught by a Christian friend: "Ma-Ra-Na-Tha."

The phrase, which is Aramaic, comes at the end of St. Paul’s First Epistle to the Corinthians, and can be translated in several ways. Mr. Lee said that he was told it means "Come to me, O Lord Jesus," and that although he is not a believer, he finds the sounds soothing.

"The problem is to keep the monkey mind from running off into all kinds of thoughts," he said. "A certain tranquillity settles over you. The day’s pressures and worries are pushed out. Then there’s less problem sleeping."

He brushed aside the words of a prominent Singaporean writer and social critic, Catherine Lim, who described him as having "an authoritarian, no-nonsense manner that has little use for sentiment."

"She’s a novelist!" he cried. "Therefore, she simplifies a person’s character," making what he called a "graphic caricature of me." "But is anybody that simple or simplistic?"

The stress of his wife’s illness is constant, he said, harder on him than stresses he faced for years in the political arena. But repeatedly, in looking back over his life, he returns to his moment of greatest anguish, the expulsion of Singapore from Malaysia in 1965, when he wept in public.

That trauma presented him with the challenge that has defined his life, the creation and development of a stable and prosperous nation, always on guard against conflict within its mixed population of Chinese, Malays and Indians.

"We don’t have the ingredients of a nation, the elementary factors," he said three years ago in an interview with the International Herald Tribune, "a homogeneous population, common language, common culture and common destiny."

Younger people worry him, with their demands for more political openness and a free exchange of ideas, secure in their well-being in modern Singapore. "They have come to believe that this is a natural state of affairs, and they can take liberties with it,"he said. "They think you can put it on auto-pilot. I know that is never so."

The kind of open political combat they demand would inevitably open the door to race-based politics, he said, and "our society will be ripped apart."

A political street fighter, by his own account, he has often taken on his opponents through ruinous libel suits.

He defended the suits as necessary to protect his good name, and he dismissed criticisms by Western reporters who "hop in and hop out" of Singapore as "absolute rubbish."

In any case, it is not these reporters or the obituaries they may write that will offer the final verdict on his actions, he said, but future scholars who will study them in the context of their day.

"I’m not saying that everything I did was right," he said, "but everything I did was for an honorable purpose. I had to do some nasty things, locking fellows up without trial."

And although the leaves are already falling from the tree, he said, the Lee Kuan Yew story may not be over yet.

He quoted a Chinese proverb: Do not judge a man until his coffin is closed.

"Close the coffin, then decide," he said. "Then you assess him. I may still do something foolish before the lid is closed on me."

A sad Dad's poem..FROM ZIMBABWE. !!!


A beautiful poem written by a Father to save his Daughter !!!

Do read it once...........I am sure u also won't be left untouched by the words and the feelings that they depict.
The last stanza, after reading from the beginning, suddenly slows down the heart-beats..

A sad Dad's poem...
This is a beautiful poem. There is an appeal from a Zimbabwean couple at the bottom of message, not asking for anything more than that you hand the poem on............
The husband wrote the poem.


Just for this morning, I am going to
smile when I see your face and laugh
when I feel like crying.

Just for this morning, I will let you
choose what you want to wear,
and smile and say how perfect it is.

Just for this morning, I am going to step
over the laundry and pick you up and take you to
the park to play.

Just for this morning, I will leave the
dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put
that puzzle of yours together.

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug
the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with
you in the backyard and blow bubbles..

Just for this afternoon, I will not yell
once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and
whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you one
if he comes by.

Just for this afternoon, I won't worry
about what you are going to be when you grow up, or
second guess every decision I have made where you are

Just for this afternoon, I will let you
help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you
trying to fix them.

Just for this afternoon, I will take us
to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can
have both toys.

Just for this evening, I will hold you in
my arms and tell you a story about how you were
born and how much I love you.

Just for this evening, I will let you
splash in the tub and not get angry.
Just for this evening, I will let you

stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars..
Just for this evening, I will snuggle
beside you for hours, and miss my favourite TV shows.

Just for this evening when I run my
finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be
grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.

I will think about the mothers and
fathers who are searching for their missing children, the
mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's
graves instead of their bedrooms. The mothers
and fathers who are in hospital rooms
watching their children suffer senselessly and screaming
inside that little body

And when I kiss you goodnight I will hold
you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then,
that I will thank God for you, and ask him for
nothing, except one more day..............

Hi! I am a 29-year-old father. My wife and I have had a wonderful life together. God blessed us with a child too. Our daughter's name is Rachel and she is 10 months old. Not long ago did the doctors detect brain cancer in her little body.

MR Asks Kalam what his leadership philosophy is..!!!

Here's a good one. Enjoy! Subject: Manmohan Singh!

While visiting India , Mahinda Rajapakse is invited
to tea with Abdul Kalam.

He asks Kalam what his leadership philosophy is.
He says that, it is to surround himself with
intelligent people.

Mahinda (MR) asks how he knows if they're intelligent.

"I do so by asking them the right questions," says
Kalam. "Allow me to demonstrate. "

Mahinda watches as Kalam phones Manmohan Singh and says,

"Mr. Prime Minister, please answer this question:
Your mother has a child, and your father has a child,
and this child is not your brother or sister. Who is it?"

Manmohan immediately responds,
"It's me, Sir !"

"Correct. Thank you and good-bye" says Kalam. He hangs
up and says," Did you get that, Mr. Mahinda?"

Mahinda nods: "Yes Mr. President. Thanks a lot.

I'll definitely be using that!"

Mahinda, upon returning to Colombo, decides
he'd better put Mervin Silva to the test.
Mahinda summons him to the Temple Trees and says,
"Mervin, I wonder if you can answer a question for me."

"Why, of course, My Lord!. What's on your mind?"

Mahinda poses the question: "Uhh, your mother has a
child, and your father has a child, and this child is not
your brother or your sister. Who is it?"

Mr. Mervin Silva was puzzled and finally asks, "Can I think about
it and get back to you?" Mahinda agrees, and Mervin leaves.

Mervin immediately calls a meeting of all Ministors of UPFA including Basil
and they puzzle over the question for several hours,
but nobody can come up with an answer. Finally,
in desperation,
Mervin calls

Ranil Wickremasinghe and explains the problem.

"Mr. Wickremasinghe, your mother has a child, and your father
has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister.
Who is it?"

Ranil answers immediately, "It's me, of course."

Much relieved, Mervin rushes back to the Temple trees,
finds Mahinda Rajapakse, and exclaims,

"I know the answer, My Lord! I know
who it is!
It's our Ranil Wickremasinghe!"

And Mahinda replies in disgust, "Wrong,
it's Manmohan Singh!"

Ladies and Gentlemen,

My Name is Subramaniam Masilamany, I am a Tamil. Today my topic is on “Education, Empowerment, Encouragement, Enlightenment, Emancipation and Enrichment, to emerge to eminence and excellence of Tamils worldwide.

“Our mission is to UNITE, initiate, develop, sustain, and share the socio-economic improvement of Tamils worldwide” The concept of Governments, national borders, language, religion and class system are fast disappearing, replaced by one people, one earth. Planet earth does not even appear in the map of the universe. That is how insignificant we are.

Let me pose a simple question to my Tamil fraternity, folks, friends and families? What is the difference between the Sheep and a Shepard? Which one is easier to manage and manipulate. What the Singhalese have done very successfully is to destroy our knowledge base. If you talk to the people between the ages of 25-55 you see sense knowledge-less-ness. They have different mindset and very hard to fathom and understand them. Why, they are the victims of destruction by the Singhalese. So we set out to neutralise, equalise and surprise them with our own plan. Every Tamil parent now knows that education is the bed rock below the foundation of any civil society. Thank God we got out in time to revive the glory of the Tamils. The burning of the Jaffna Library was done at the direction of the Mahanayake, who is implementing the agenda of Mahavamsa and managed by Mahasangha. That is the seminal source.

In any war the first thing that is done is to cut off the flow of information by attacking the command, control and communication centre. Communications is the most important single element in any community. Cut off the ability of community to communicate you have them in total disarray. Remember my fellow Tamils, SWRD Bandaranayke, JR Jayewardene and Mahinda Rajapaksa are just the foot soldiers of the Mahasangha. Listen carefully my friends, Mahasangha is the real culprit, Mahinda is all for himself. I always said Mahavamsa- Mahasangha and Mahanayake. The three points in an evil triangle. This is where the power lies and where from the orders are given. Religion is a very sensitive issue but when it become fanatical it has to be dealt with effectively, efficient and expeditiously. The purpose of “religion” is to introduce fear in the mind of people.
I will tell you for a next few years things will be put off. Then they will start it again. Fool me once Shame on you fool me twice, shame on both, fool me thrice shame on me.
Take it from me; this racial issue will go on forever, till we find an equalizer. Dear folks don’t look at Mahinda look at Mahanayake. Mahanayake has no problem with the 18th amendment to the constitution. Because Mahinda delivered more Tamils head than asked for, he exceeded the quota, won’t you reward some who delivers much more than asked for? Tamil Modayas wake up.

What were the Singhalese doing for the last 60 years, slowly but steadily degraded the Tamils. So we must understand the flow of personality of the Singhalese. But what I do not understand is the stupidity of the Tamil Modayas who are getting political mileage out our misery. Thosais, Panam koddais, Pariahs and lately Modayas, where will it end. It ends right now. Hence we have embarked on a re-emergence plan, it has to begin with education, and I have given below a suggested


We need

1. 15,000 Tamil students to enrol in universities, out of which
1000 students to enrol in legal profession, 1000 students to enter Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Cambridge, MIT etc and at least another 1000 to obtain Master or doctorates.

2. At least 95% of the 15,000 must enrol in Engineering, Computer Science, Investment Banking, Business Management, Accounting, Chemical engineering and advanced material management. Political Science etc.

3. We need Investment bankers, constitutional lawyers, Writers, Journalist and Creative artists, Business experts, MBAs, Politicians, Members of the Parliament and City Councillors Unity experts, professionals and counsellors, Inventors, Scientist and Researchers, Technology transfer experts4 5000 new businesses of which 1000 industries
5. 100 International patents to be filed

6. To ensure Tamil elders over the age of 50 remain healthy and vibrant to lead our next generation

7. Embark on Leadership, Courage and Confidence building training.

Here are few motivational tips

“Give a man a fish you feed him for a day, teach him to fish he will feed all his life and more” Confucius.
“Forests withstand hurricanes but single trees succumb. United we stand, stand alone we fall”
“Help some one to start a business, give him or her head start, and buy their products and services”
“No fish can survive without water; no man can survive without a community”

The easiest way you can help the community is to help yourself and your family. We have come a long way since 1960 and how we remerged since 2009 is the proof of our exacting culture. We are back in the international forum asserting our rights to freedom.

Here is another one for my people. There are about 1,000,000 Sri Lankan women working in the Middle East as maids. When an Arab man sees and talks me he thinks that I am working in Canada as a house boy in some wealthy family or when he sees a Sri Lankan woman he will say there goes another slut. Don’t call me names, I call it the way I see it. We cannot stop stereotyping and profiling. Once I asked King Mahinda when one of his maids return home pregnant, what happens to his Aryan Heritage? Destroyed or diluted? In old martial arts they hit a person across the face, on the side of the head and on the back of the head. These are treatments for certain diseases.

So from here on no Tamil should call himself or herself a Sri Lankan. We will give that honorary designation to Mahindas people. We are Tamils we are as good as Japanese or Germans, we are the creators of wealth for all. Every Tamil must make it a vow and challenge to send all their kids to the University and when next time an Arab man comes in to see you he will treat you like a human being. In Saudi Arabia there are goats in the street to scavenge, no proud Saudi will ever work as garbage picker. Sri Lankan sheep or Sri Lankan goat?

What is wrong with the dark skinned people? Why do you pick the jobs that no one wants to do it? You know why? You guys are divided. You guys were divided and you are still remaining divided. I think if I am not mistaken, we dark skinned Indians are the only one still left divided.
Call me a reverse racist.

What can we do when in Tamil Nadu with 70 million Tamils have Film Stars as the chief minister and opposition leader? What do you expect?


Thank you for listening

Turn to support Chinese as new strategy,with Tamils learning Chinese developing to be world language!Plague of Brahminism will no longer haunt Tamils!

Are the IDPs’ in their arduous trek to their elusive homes to be “finished off” with India’s complicity?
[Editorial, Eelam Nation]

President Rajapakse’s government claiming to liberate the Tamil people who were caught up in between the clutches of the LTTE, and the atrocities of the Sri Lankan army including the bombings of civilian hospitals by them, called the “humanitarian operation” in the final days of the war, lured more than 300,000 thousand Tamil people from the war affected zone to move into areas controlled by the government. Little did they realise that this “liberation” meant that they were to be confined within razor wires only to experience another other facet of Sri Lankan State terrorism. Far from being free, much to their consternation, they were to experience the worst form of human indignity within these camps euphemistically called welfare villages. The idea was to identify, torture and kill those suspected of LTTE loyalties. In keeping with the former Army Commander Fonseka’s statement to a congregation of Buddhist priests in the US that at least 10,000 more of such persons were yet to be identified and killed, many are missing, some poisoned at the very early stages and some paying the supreme price for being the relatives of suspected terrorists. Hundreds have been summarily executed. Numerous women of all ages have been raped and children, killed or taken to be slaves in the homes of army personnel or influential persons in the south with no hope of any freedom.

Around 7000 persons are still in custody most being severely tortured to this day said to be in the process of being rehabilitated. The idea is to weed out the suspected militants and leave the rest to perish being part of the process of “being finished off” reminiscent of the Nazi “final solution”. 40,000 civilians are still in the camps still surrounded by barbed wires virtually imprisoned. With no foreign NGOs allowed in and no witnesses, thousands of Tamils are shown to be released to go back home but when they reach their homes they are chased away by the security forces back to the camps from where they went, a drama that depicts their never ending trauma and suffering.

Besides the tremendous physical agony and the painful inconveniences there is also the enormously serious long and short term psychological impact on the IDPS. Dr Daya Somasunderam of the department psychiatry at the University of Jaffna in his well researched scholarly paper on: “Collective trauma in the Vanni- a qualitative inquiry into the mental health of the internally displaced due to the civil war in Sri Lanka” (July 2010), states: “The narratives, drawings, letters and poems as well as data from observations, key informant interviews, extended family and focus group discussions show considerable impact at the family and community. The family and community relationships, networks, processes and structures are destroyed. There develops collective symptoms of despair, passivity, silence, loss of values and ethical mores, amotivation, dependency on external assistance, but also resilience and post-traumatic growth…… Considering the severity of family and community level adverse effects and implication for resettlement, rehabilitation, and development programmes; interventions for healing of memories, psychosocial regeneration of the family and community structures and processes are essential”….and further in his conclusion : “However, instead of using the historic opportunity for national reconciliation, the repressive ethnocentric approach without dealing with the underlying grievances in the long term will only alienate the minorities once again. Apart from the political implications, the contest of the different discourses at stake and the need of the Vanni IDP trauma for healing; if not social justice, the whole national reconciliation process at least needs some acknowledgement of what happened. If there is no healing of memories, merely a repression, the untreated collective trauma could well turn into resentment and rekindle cycles of violence once again…..” In no way can these observations be dismissed lightly. It is not like the flippant use of terms like “humanitarian operation”, “liberation” etc.

At the beginning of the incarceration immediately after the war and thereafter, the world was told at various media interviews that land mines were being removed as if the people leaving their homes had mined their own houses before they left, being out of their minds, and whereas, while on their way to the camps from all directions no mines had exploded. The story of de mining was a myth to help contractors on both sides to make money and to stall the process of resettlement. Then we were told that the elusive electricity and water services were being connected to their new homes. What is real is that thousands of pre fabricated homes for the Sri Lankan army personnel are being constructed with Chinese aid in the Tamil homeland with its face being transformed to appear to be traditionally Sinhala Buddhist. The Tamil IDPs, if they are lucky, will get the residue of these. If the IDPs are lucky to return to their home environment they will not be able recognise their former habitat completely transformed to look a Sinhala Buddhist village. Those displaced from the Muttur and Sampur areas in the east a few years ago still remain displaced.

In May 2010, in an interview with Al Jazira TV, President Rajapakse, besides his other blatant lies, stated that by the end of the current year all IDPs would be resettled in their own homes. It is becoming increasingly evident that the government can tell all kinds of lies in regard to Tamil affairs and get away with them, an indictment on the Sri Lankan sense of justice and integrity, emanating from the very top. A month later, Suresh Premachandran, an outspoken Tamil parliamentarian, stated at a televised interview that the provision of dwellings to the displaced Tamils both in the North and the east was negligible with little or no assistance given and absolutely no houses built in the Vanni area and that people including children and the sick were living under trees in some areas. They obviously are not enjoying a prolonged picnic. Premachandran also stated that any progress in regard to resettlement especially in the high security zones in Muttur (east) and Jaffna (north) was at a complete standstill.

New Delhi’s claim that the assistance to the Tamil IDPs is being monitored is an absolute lie. The corrupt Indian polity with their hypocrisy and ruthlessness, intensified by a centre with a weak backbone, loving the Sri Lankan Tamils to death have come forward to provide housing and their maintenance to tens of thousands of displaced Tamils in the north and the east after having helped the Sri Lankan State to massacre tens of thousands of Tamil civilians during the first five months of 2010.

With Chinese influence or rather aggression in the Indian ocean increasing, India not to lose any more time and favour, though far too late, has been desperate to build a buffer against any further Chinese advance and find the helpless Tamils a convenient friend and scapegoat. The other motivation is the appeasement of the Tamil Nadu government so that they could in turn keep their people happy while keeping the corrupt leadership in power. The Tamil people should not should not be bamboozled or deceived any more by Indian machinations. We recommend that they should, however, accept any favour that comes their way but should not be swayed by feelings of sentiment. The Sri Lankan government, on the other hand, claiming that the Tamils are their own citizens , seem to think that the Indians are obligated to help the Tamils because of their cultural affinity and would try to milk every cent out of them. Given the corruption on both sides there is also a lot money to be made in this game. Incidentally, the magnitude of Indian corruption could show its face at the conduct and the success of the Commonwealth games in Delhi which the rest of the world watch with trepidation. It would be recalled that the Indian Foreign Secretary who while being the Indian Ambassador in Sri Lanka formerly was flirting with Sinhala Buddhist chauvinism, has now developed a surprisingly inordinate love for the Tamils.

To digress a little, for the Chinese, with their increasing influence and power in the region, their interest in Sri Lanka is strategic, economic and hegemonic diplomacy. For them the Sinhalese and the Tamils are faceless entities as long as their interests are satisfied. In Myanmar, the military junta is able to sustain themselves because of Chinese assistance and in return China’s strategic interests are fulfilled, while democracy and Aung Sans Suu Kyi despite the overwhelming landslide in their favour can wait for another day, and in Sri Lanka by no stretch of imagination is there any democracy.

The question that has arisen in many Tamil circles is whether the Tamil people should show their backs to the Indians and turn to support the Chinese as the new strategy, with their children learning Chinese (Mandarin) developing to be a world language) to be taught in schools. Furthermore, the plague of Brahminism will no longer haunt the Tamils. They should be pragmatic in turning to the winning side that will bring them more benefits, not wasting their time with India. This was also the view that the late N. Shanmugadasan, a former leader of the Ceylon Communist Party (Peking Wing) and intellectual, advocated in the 1960s and the 1970s as a remedy for the redress of Tamil grievances.

If the Tamils now languishing are to be continued to be used as pawns in the diplomatic games between India and Sri Lanka, it has to be presumed, that they are being considered for a slow and painful final solution to be “finished off’ with Indian complicity as was done in their massacre between January and May 2010.

Do not infringe the rights and freedom of another person or persons.!!!

One Small Step to Freedom

We want to protect all innocent Tamils from our enemies in Sri Lanka. Any Tamil who acts against any Tamil or any Tamil orgnisation for this matter is treated as an innocent party until he or she is informed about the laws of Canada. This is the same law applicable in most western nations. So people in other countries can take this simple suggestion. If you intend cooperating with any forreign agents or governments please consult a criminal lawyer before doing so. Not on only the resident government but any other citizen can institute an action against you in a court of law and I will tell you these courts are very very expensive and are not covered by legal aid. besides LIFE IMPRISONMENT, you will lose also your home, savings and all other assets So when it comes to Sri Lankan government affairs stay out of it. Gothabaya and Kapila are trying to divide the community which are citizens of another country. It is you who will be prosecuted not GR KP.
All electronic transmissions including telephone calls can now be monitored without anyones knowledge. But only draw back is that it cannot be used as an evidence in court of law. In todays advance information age there is nothing private anymore. These are simple advice we want to give our hard working innocent Tamils who may sometimes for some strange and obscure reason help the enemy. Sri Lankan Governement and Singhalese are considered as enemies of Tamils. It is not the penalty that ruins your life it is the court procedure and the expenses. Criminal Lawyers are very very expensive. so our advice is stay out of colloborating with the enemy.

Anyways we thought it will be good idea to give the law as it is written in Canada. It is coverd under PUBLIC ORDER. That is an indication of the mind, force and nature of the law. The intent of the law is to maintain public order

Part 11- Offences against Public Order

Treason (Subversion) and other offences against the Queen's Authority and Person

46. (2) Treason- Every one who commits treason who, in Canada

(a) use force or violence for the prupose of overthrowing the government or Canada or a province;
(b) without lawful authority, communicates or makes available to an agent of state other than Canada, military or scientific information or any sketch, plan, model,article or document of a military or scientific character that he knows or ought to know may be used by the state for a purpose prejudicial to the safety or defense of Canada.
(c) Conspires with any person to commit high treason or to do anything mentioned in paragraph (a);
(d) form an intention to do anything that is high treason or that is mentioned in paragraph (a) and manifest that intention by an overt act; or
(e) conspires with any person to do anything mentioned in paragraph (b) or forms an intention to do anything mentioned in paragraph (b) amd manifests that intention by an overt act.

I hope the law is clear, it is not an act of fear mongering, it is the law every one in Canada has to abide by. More of this law is covered under criminal codes 83, 462, 465 etc.

To Gothabaya and his intelligence service the modus operandi is use some one and then throw them away. That is the nature of narccisitic people. Do the Tamils want to fall for this. I do not think any tamil will risk his good life in Canadas to help an unreasonable enemy.

This is one of the ways in which we are standing up for our inalienable, non negotiable un-bargainable birth right called FREEDOM. What do Tamils know about freedom They never had it. Tamils never had freedom so they must taste the feeling of freedom. You have know is that every right that you think is your right is a legitimate right as long you do not in fringe the rights and freedom of another person or persons.

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind..!!!

|Bas Baskaran

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She
hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always
there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see
the world, I will marry you.'

One day,
someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages
came off, she was able to see everything, including her

He asked
her,'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The
girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The
sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected
that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life
led her to refuse to marry him.

boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her
saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before
they were yours, they were mine.'

This is
how the human brain often works when our status changes.
Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who
was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a

before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't

you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone
who has nothing to eat.

you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone
who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

before you complain about life - Think of someone who went
too early to heaven.

whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who
walks the same distance with their feet.

And when
you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the
unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your

depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on
your face and think: you're alive and still




2012 December 21st at 11:11 am..!!! This is a date that the Mayans predicted..!!!

Sithamparapzillai Kathieravelu

One of the most significant years in numerology is the year 2012
A.D. That is because that is the date that the Mayans predicted
that the world would end.
Even people who do not know a lot about Mayan astrology have heard
this theory that the year 2012 will bring the apocalypse. It is
supposed to end on December 21st at 11:11 am. This is a date that
has always significant to theorists, physicist, astrologers,
historians and numerologists as the year signifies the end of the
thirteen cycle that make up what is known as the Mayan Long Count
The Mayan Calendar contains both components of astrology and
numerology. The people that belonged to this ancient civilization
of Central America were adept pampers and trackers of the heavens.
The massive temples that were built by this early civilization were
not just tombs or places to worship the Gods. They were also built
to be giant observatories of the heavens.
These temples were architecturally designed so that the movements
of the planets, the sun, the moon and the stars could be tracked.
The majestic structures that the ancient Mayans built were not just
places of worship. They were centers of astronomic studies that
also did dual duty as temples of worship. Some temples even had
cut-outs in their stones in the shapes of snakes. As the sun would
raise, these cut out shapes would cast lengthening shadows in the
shape of snakes down the temple steps. From a distance it would
seem that a real snake was slithering down the steps. When the
snake shadow lengthened so that it reached the bottom of the steps
it marked a day. One whole day in the Mayan calendar was called a
Many ancient civilizations in Africa and the Far East developed
calendars based on a 20 unit mathematical system and coincidentally
so did the Mayan civilization.
In essence the Long Count system nested cycles of days based on the
number 20. Every unit of time in the calendar was based somehow
out of that unit of 20.
Twenty days was called a Uinal. 7200 days was called a Katun and
144,000 days was called a Baktun. The Mayan year consisted of 360
days and was called a Tun. This calendar was a little shorter than
ours in terms of year length because it was only 360 days. Those
360 days were in turn divided into units of twenty days.
The reason that ancient Mayan year was a little bit shorter than
our current calendar of 365 years is that it was based on the
astral cycles of Venus. The ancient Mayans knew that whenever this
shining celestial body was close to the earth that it seemed to
bring good times. Of course today we would note this knowing that
the planet Venus is associated in astrology with love and
blessings. The planet Venus also has cycles that are the equivalent
in length to the number twenty.
This Long Count system of measuring time was first put into
practice by the Mayans around 32 B.C. The reason that it was
called The Long Count is because the Mayans, who were quite dark
spiritually, believed that the end of the world must happen. In
fact it was something to look forward to, because life was believed
tobe easier after that.
In essence the Mayan Long Count is the countdown to the eventual
and unavoidable apocalypse that would bring the end of the world.
The high priests and shamans in the Mayan culture figured out that
the Long Count which is supposed to equal 5125.36 days.
This number of days is also known as the Mayan Great Cycle. This
passage of time ends exactly on the winter solstice. Amazingly the
Mayan mathematicians were able to pinpoint the exact day and time
that the world will end in the future and that is on December 21st
2012. Just as a matter of interest they also believed that the
world was conceived on August 13th.
There is actual astrological and astronomical data to back up the
theory of the Mayan Long Count, and there are things happening in
the sky that day that could potentially bring the end of the world!
Astrologically this date is important as this marks the date when
the Sun is going to cross what is astronomically known as the Milky
Way Equator. The Mayans were absolutely incredible mathematicians
and they could predict centuries into the future when it came to
predicting the trajectory of the Sun.
Further here is a lot of imagery representing the Milky Way in
works of art done by the Mayans. The sea of stars of the Milky Way
is essential to the Mayan myth of the Sacred Tree.
In many of these drawings the sun is symbolized as a canoe
that carries Mayan deities across the sky. In many drawings on
temple walls there is a progressive series of images that shows the
end of the world as symbolized by the canoe sinking into the Milky
Way. Astrologically the crossing of the sun over the Milky Way
equator scheduled to happen at exactly 11:11 a.m GMT on December
21st in the year 2012.
This type of astrological event is unheard of as the sun will
technically be in what is known as the "dark rift" of the Milky Way
and oddly will also be in conjunction with the exact center of the
Many visionaries and metaphysicians have noted how important this
date is to the end of the world. One famous analysis called "The
Mayan Prophecies" (authored by Adrian Gilbert and Maurice Cotterill)
have put forth the theory that the sun will reverse its magnetic
field that day. This would be a development that would result in
weather changes and seismic shifts that could cause the end of the
Of course the end of the world has been predicted many times in
history and it is more likely that the Long Count will signify the
end of one era and a new beginning of consciousness. However it is
quite odd that the number 11:11 -- which is apocalyptic in other
religions and cultures -- is the same in this system.
Every major religion, minor religions you've never
heard of, non-religious spiritualists, and even athiests
and agnostics agree in 2012 something will happen.

There are millions of people around the world sensing
this big event is coming. But What will happen?

Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout.

Do you know why a Car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rearview Mirror is so small?
Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. Look Ahead and Move on.

Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.

All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either.

Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!

When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight? "Yes, losing your vision!"

When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

WORRYING does not take away tomorrows' TROUBLES, it takes away Today's PEACE.
