By S. Makenthiran B.A., FCCA

Sri Lanka or Ceylon as it was endearingly known is the home of three communities, Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims. As a Tamil Canadian, though forced out and living far away from the land of my birth, I wish my country of origin peace, prosperity and justice for all. The three segments of minorities – Northeast (Eelam) Tamils, Upcountry Tamils and Muslims - have all suffered at the hands of the majority Sinhalese.

Bandaranaike, his wife, daughter and other successors to his leadership.Post your comments
