News: Hopeful for a better future
Posted Date: 21/08/2016 (Sunday)
65th SLFP convention is to be held on 4th September and party leader Maithree has decided to clean the fascistic rebels, before that. In this column, we have pressed to defend this party of populist liberals, from fascistic intruders. SWRD who started the SLFP entered politics as a liberal politician proposing a federal solution to the nationality problem in 1926. However after forming the SLFP, on the sensitive issue of language, the party originally espoused the use of both Sinhala and Tamil as national languages, but in the mid-1950s it adopted a "Sinhala only" policy. Nevertheless the Bandaranaike–Chelvanayakam Pact was an agreement signed between the Prime Minister and the leader of the main Tamil political party in Lanka S. J. V. Chelvanayakam on July 26, 1957.

News: Editorial Beginning of international war crimes probe?
Posted Date: 19/08/2016 (Friday)
Editorial The Northern Provincial Council (NPC) is making the most of the increasing impotency of the state to run a parallel government of sorts in the northern parts of the country; it is also working overtime to annex the Eastern Province to the North. Chief Minister C. V. Wigneswaran and others of his ilk are all out to gain legitimacy for their political project with the help of foreign powers. Hardly a day passes without a foreign dignitary visiting the North and entertaining appeals from the NPC members and doing a Dixit.

Posted Date: 17/08/2016 (Wednesday)
A political prisoner, an inmate of Anuradhapura Prison, Rasiah Anantharajah was rushed to the Jaffna Teaching Hospital after his health condition was found to be 'unstable'. He was handcuffed to the bed at Ward 19, yesterday. Anantharajah has been involved on a hunger strike at the prison on several occasions. When Ceylon Today contacted Minister of Rehabilitation and Resettlement D.M. Swaminathan, who had intervened and transferred the prisoner to Jaffna from Anuradhapura, he said he was informed by a Tamil politician about Anantharajah's health condition. The prison officials had told him that the inmate was 'mentally deranged'.

News: Foreign aid to country's female education
Posted Date: 16/08/2016 (Tuesday)
In today's fast growing world, most of the nations are fighting to leave a mark of their existence. While some countries like the United States and the United Kingdom have been the front runners for as long as the history books allow us to count on, other countries like Germany and Japan have surprised the world by becoming some of the largest economies in spite of being nearly demolished during the Second World War. The fact of the matter remains, however, that none of these developed countries achieved the status or the right to be called "developed" overnight.

News: Does Vatican disapprove of Cardinal's nod to give Buddhism 'foremost place' in Sri Lanka?
Posted Date: 10/08/2016 (Wednesday)
The Vatican appears to disapprove of Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith’s statement of July 25, that it is right to give to Buddhism the “foremost place” in the Sri Lankan constitution and that it is not right to declare Sri Lanka a secular state. The Vatican Radio’s website carries a story from Colombo dated August 4, in which a group of Sri Lankan Catholics are quoted as saying that the new Sri Lankan constitution should be a secular one and that giving a special constitutional status to Buddhism is a violation of human rights.

News: Challenging Ratnawalli’s Imperial Sinhala Position
Posted Date: 09/08/2016 (Tuesday)
In a recent article I took issue with Robert S. Perinpanayagam for his short sharp comment on one of my essays on the Elephant Pass debacle of the year 2000. Embittered Tamilness has appeared in Colombo Telegraph as well as Thuppahi. Darshanie Ratnawalli recently entered a long comment in CT in ways that seem to support my work. However, her reading confuses the concept of “nation” with “nation state,” while also providing a distilled historical interpretation that overweights the past record in ways that suggest a measure of Sinhala exclusivism that leans towards the chauvinist camp. My presentation of this set of criticisms here is intended to supersede the hurried memo I placed in CT in opposition to her claims.
