News: BBC Tamil Radio Series Tells the Story of Burma's Tamils
Posted Date: 15/08/2013 (Thursday)
The lives of Burma's (Myanmar's) Tamil minority are in the centre of a 12-part weekly series launching on BBC Tamil radio on Sunday 18 August. "The Tamils Who Stayed Back In The Golden Land" (Thanga Mannil Thangiya Thamizhargal) explores the conditions in which Burma's ethnic Tamils live today and talks about their collective memory, their daily lives and their aspirations for their future in a changing Burma. Burma's ethnic Tamils, whose number is unofficially estimated at half a million, are the descendants of Tamils from the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. They migrated to Burma during the days of the British Empire and worked in finance and trade as well as agriculture. The end of the British rule in Burma in 1948 led to a decline of the community's fortunes. In the 1960s, in the wake of the military rule, many were forced to leave Burma - but many also stayed back.

News: The National Archives has given a voice to historical documents relating to the Road to Partition 1939-47
Posted Date: 15/08/2013 (Thursday)
The British National Archives has recorded the narratives of four Panjabi elders uprooted from their homeland during the Partition of British India in 1947. At least 18 million people were uprooted and one million died in the mass migration that followed. In 2010, Jaswant, Mohammed, Reginald and Tilak Raj met at The National Archives to describe how Partition had shaped their lives. Born into different faith communities in the Panjab, these men are united today by their love of that common homeland, that past shared experience which was precious and which has now been lost.

News: Sri Lanka After War: Tamils in Sri Lanka is a traumatized and divided people with limited influence over their own future.
Posted Date: 14/08/2013 (Wednesday)
Gunnar Sørbø, senior scientist at the Chr Michesen Institute (CMI), Norway, writing in the Norwegian periodical Morgenbladetm, says - It is just over four years ago now, the long war between the Tamil Tigers and the government of Sri Lanka ended in a bloodbath and complete defeat for the Tigers. The leadership was wiped out and thousands of innocent Tamils were killed, pushed inside an ever smaller area and used as human shields as the war evolved in the government army's favor. It was a humanitarian catastrophe, and a UN report concluded that the international community probably had once failed in her mission to save lives.
