தனிப்பாடல் உரை

உனக்கு உதவியன் வீட்டை இருட்டாக்கி (அவன் வாழ்கையை நீ துரோகத்தால் நாசமாக்கி)விட்டு. உன் வீட்டில் விளக்கேற்றி (நீ வாழ்ந்து)என்ன பயன்? இருத்தல் முக்கியமென்றால் நீ மிருகம் மனிடன் அல்ல, நன்றியை   கொன்ற கயவன், குடிலன், கிரதகன். வெள்ளரி பூ உன் அருகே பூக்கும். வேதளம் சேரும்.

மகிழ்ச்சியான ஒரு வரம்.

கண்காணிப்பும் விழிப்புணர்வும் கூடிய அமைதியான மனம் கொண்ட தவ வாழ்க்கை வலிமை மிக்க மகிழ்ச்சியான ஒரு வரம்.
அது மகத்தான கூறுகளை கொண்ட இந்த வளமிக்க பூமி போன்றது. 

ஒப்பிட்டுப்பார்ப்பதோ, கண்டனம் செய்வதோ இல்லாத அத்தகையதோர் மனம் உள்ளபோது மட்டுமே, அளவிட இயலாத கீர்த்தியை வெளிப்படுத்துகிறது.

Modi-Rajapaksas tie to ‘extend’ beyond congratulatory messages.

In his interview in 2017 with Ceylon Today, the newly appointed and former opposition leader Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the ‘Chinak factor’ had distanced them from India. India has been closely watching the political development in Sri Lanka and came out first to greet the newly elected leaders – the Rajpaksas, expecting more in the coming years that last week’s greetings on Twitter, the telephone call and hush-hush visit by Indian Foreign Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar. India knew Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s victory was imminent, and so did the US and China in the backdrop that the power-sharing brothers are more in demand in the region holding the power of a country strategically located on the world map.
The newly elected President is going to India on 29 November to meet Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Modi Government’s engagement with the Rajapaksas had mix reactions in the past; some bitter, some sweet. But the bitterness remains the same undeniably because of China’s strong presence in Sri Lanka more than India. The invite to visit New Delhi came from Indian Foreign Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar who flew in without much ado to meet the President two days after the poll victory. Despite Modi had greeted several elected leaders of Sri Lanka in the past years, there was not much of an outcome for India and things soured mainly during the previous Rajapaksa regime who entertained China for the first time. However, the entire weight was shouldered by Ranil – Maithri Government for the last five years where they ‘managed’ to cope up with the Indian interests but it was less than China’s strategic and ambitious Silk Road plan. The Hambantota Harbour given to the State-owned Chinese company for 99-years for just USD 1.2 billion and the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) taking more loans from China irked the Indians. China’s presence in the Indian Ocean Indians have always maintained that Sri Lanka’s mounting Chinese debts are far worse than their projects in the island. The huge loans Sri Lanka obtained from China has seen as a threat to Indian sovereignty and the Indian Ocean region. The Indian Ocean region and the geopolitical experts say that the Chinese will remain in the region longer than expected with no way out now. It is also noted that Sri Lanka will end up giving more land in return to business unable to pay back loans to the Chinese. But India wants to remain as close as possible where the Chinese are in Sri Lanka. Since Hambantota Harbour was offered to China, India has been asking the now-defunct Mattala Airport that is also in Hambantota but that seems to have not happened. Many officials came from India for discussions with plans to run the airport but that matter has been stalled. But Indian wants to stay close as possible where the Chinese are in Sri Lanka. Since Hambantota Harbour was offered to China, the Indians are now asking for the now-defunct Mattala Airport that is also near Hambantota. Many Indian officials came to discuss plans to run the airport, but the matter was stalled. However to their credit, the Colombo Port’s East Terminal and Jaffna International Airport were given to the Indians. The Indian Airlines commencing operations in Jaffna seems to be some solace for them, but it still does not fit the bill. India has also made sure China does not enter the Northern and Eastern region of Sri Lanka. Geopolitical experts now claim that there is no way out for Sri Lanka from the Chinese but the situation needs to be managed; if not international confrontations will erupt in greater levels putting Sri Lanka in hot water. Mending SL-India ties In 2017, then Opposition Leader Rajapaksa told this writer, “I don’t know why India thinks we are tilted towards China. I need to mend the relationship.” He also said that he wants to meet Modi because he has always been a dear friend but Indian bureaucrats have come in between, crippling ties. The Rajapaksas blamed the Indian intelligence agency – the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) for their defeat in 2015. Conversely last year, former President Maithripala Sirisena was quoted saying that RAW is plotting to kill him and “Modi may not be aware of the plan” – parallel to the line the Rajapaksas had lamented. “I would say my Government did not have the time to establish a rapport with the present Government of India the way we had with the Congress Government that was in power earlier. Shiv Shankar Menon has commented on the understanding we had with his Government,” he told Ceylon Today. He quoted how China came to assist when India rejected the Hambantota port project. He said “During our time, China, Japan, India, and many other countries participated in development projects in this country. The Chinese have a very quick decision-making system which makes it very easy to do business with them.” Indian bureaucracy has a slow and lethargic system like in Sri Lanka. Also, they were known to be bargainers in the region which is why they lost many of the geopolitical games. When the country needed funds there was no time he said adding that he should not be blamed because he always gave first preference to India. Today, the Indians regret snubbing the offer despite intelligently calling that the Hambantota project was not viable and feasible and that they don’t undertake worthless projects. And then the Chinese entered and became the forerunners of development projects in Sri Lanka. In November however nthe Rajapaksa brothers were greeted by Modi. Premier Rajapaksa said that he would work with his Indian counterpart for peace and prosperity for both the countries and the region and that the two countries will continue to work closely to strengthen bilateral ties. But India had more messages to the Rajapaksas. Having seen the voting pattern at the Presidential poll with a polarised victory where the minorities had mostly rejected the Rajapaksas, India came back to remind the promised 13 Amendment as part of the Tamil aspirations and reconciliation process. 13A and the Tamil issue In New Delhi, Official Spokesperson, Shri Raveesh Kumar of the Ministry of External Affairs responded to many questions from the Indian Media on 22 November. One of the questions was: Many reports that there will be effects on India and Sri Lanka relations because the new establishment is closer to China; however, India has taken initiative from its side. The big question here is how India will ensure the protection of rights of Tamils in Sri Lanka? The Spokesperson responded by citing the Indian Foreign Minister’s meeting with the New Sri Lankan President and added that the first point of discussion focused on strengthening bilateral relationships. He also conveyed India’s expectation that GoSL will take forward the process of nation reconciliation to come up with the solution that meets the aspirations of the Tamil community for equality, justice, peace and dignity. The spokesperson then said that the President Rajapaksa reaffirmed that he will be the President for all Sri Lankans irrespective of racial or religious identity; creating no distinction on whether they voted for him or not. The spokesperson further told the Indian Media that the new Sri Lankan President also stated that he is committed to ensuring the development of the Northern and Eastern Provinces and considers India a valued partner towards this endeavour. On the other aspect about how India looking at the relationship, the spokesperson said, “I think it is very clear that India is ready to work closely with the Government of the day in deepening our age-old relationship. You are aware that exchanges of greetings have taken place between the two leaders. Our relationship with Sri Lanka or for that matter with any other country is not dependent on a third country, it stands independently. We enjoy a historical and very close relationship with Sri Lanka and we are looking forward and we will work very closely with the new Sri Lankan Government.” This message to the Rajapaksas from India is nothing new. But emphasising on the Tamil issue to a person who is now President is a test whether he acknowledges whether there is a Tamil problem in the country and that it needs to be addressed to provide equal opportunity to all. Foreign Policy Whether India is keen on the Tamil issue, provided the China factor or simply using the Tamil issue to make geopolitical gains is debatable. However, the new Government will slate out all differences because when President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa was Defence Secretary, India, Pakistan, the U.S. and China had been onboard with him to help eradicate the LTTE. He directly worked with these countries during the War. Pakistan gave him multi-barrel rocket launchers free of charge. Already Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has invited the President for a visit at his earliest convenience. President Rajapaksa’s vision will be neutral as he spelt it out on his foreign policy, however he will have to give priority to all the aforementioned countries and that might top the agenda. There won’t be a mistake if he even goes as far as agreeing with the Millennium Corporation Challenge pact with the U.S. He will have to continue supporting China’s projects in Sri Lanka as much as attending to India’s concerns. He knows clearly that, despite his diplomatic immunity he has to manage China and India in the case there are fresh human rights allegations against his Government and State security. Given that the U.S. pulled out from United Nations Human Rights Commission, U.S. Secretary Mike Pompeo’s Tweet noting that the U.S. applauds the people of Sri Lanka on their democratic election and is ready to work with them and the President to uphold Sri Lanka’s commitment on security sector reform, accountability and respect for human rights, begs the question that something needs to be done in terms of the ethnic issue. How the new President tackles geopolitical issues may be mathematical equation whereas India and U.S. reminding Sri Lanka of domestic issues needs a closer attention because the President in his interview with the writer in 2016 noted that he does not think there is a burning question for the Tamils and it’s “the Tamil politicians who claim so.” – amiesulo@gmail.com (Ceylon Today)
