Oh! Dear Water, A Tab to touch the hearts & minds of A / L Students plus their Teachers & a force of our own
Oh! Dear Water!
Our dear government chosen by people of the country, through ‘the budgetary reading - 2017’ gave us some relief by reducing the prices of Gas, dhal, dried Fish potatoes etc. by Rs. 2/= to Rs.25/=
Thank you Dear Government (on behalf of parents of the country)
Now, entire country, without facing any issues can have a whole Meal (indicated below) everyday to maintain ‘Good Health’ and live long or at least until next budget arrives from what ever party / parties / government.
Rice (n / a)
Fried dried fish
Potato curry (for those who refuse to eat dhal)
n / a = not applicable
A (tiny) glass of water, after meal
i do not know whether we can have any desserts in the future , any price reductions of fruits? Curd or Ice Creams?
The same government has given all of us a huge headache by raising the RATES of the water bills. Can People thank their government?
wish you all a waterrific future!
A Tab to touch the hearts of A / L Students plus their Teachers
it is suggested to give a tab to every A / L student and to their teachers. CONGRATULATIONS! students and teachers.
let us not think or take it as a DREAM shown by the minister and the Team (Government) but as something realistic.
let us try to calculate / estimate the total amount need to full fill what is promised by the government by budget 2017.
total number of Students + Total Teachers' population x price of a tab = total amount require to achieve the goal.
what are the sources of money? (from the money allocated for education, billion 90000)
Starting from ? date , month , year?
Did you reduce the prices of internet for your students to use internet facilities to enhance their education , collect additional information etc?
For what particular purpose ( for Education of course but how) the students should use their TABS?
what about their exams?
Do you expect them to use tabs in their exams ?
to be continued ...............
A force of our OWN
According to my own beliefs, in the past, why we failed to have a permanent solution for the issue worldly known as ‘LTTE’ issue is because ‘we didn’t have enough faith towards the forces of our own and because we trusted outside forces without accurately calculating or measuring the strengths of the forces we owned.
And before i move on further, let me repeat indicating that what we needed in the past was a force of our own, what we need presently is a force of our own and in the future too, without any hesitations, same theory should be applied to full fill the security (specifically) requirements of the country .
Alright stating that let us begin to learn or try refreshing our minds, if you have forgotten by now, because we live in the year 2016 that is according to the year calendar dear friends, that is the unfailing truth, our forces, our People are our strengths and those are the only effective FORCES we can rely on.
Why Mr. vignehswaran is requesting for a Peace Keeping Force is a question to me.
2009 to date, i didn't hear you or any other individuals requesting for a peace keeping force. i didn’t hear you or any of the individuals seeking for such assistance in order to maintain peace and harmony of any geographical division in this country?
Especially when we have the most qualified forces in the country to handle any situations accurately though some say this and that about them and think of hanging them till death taking them to a so called international courts of justice.
According to my own awareness there were reasons why the former government and the authorities (forces) didn’t remove the armies from the area totally but yes gradually.
Think of the reasons as to why the former government decided to keep the forces till they feel totally confidence in removing the armies from the area.
Taking any steps without studying a situation is no good.
On the other hand are you (People of Jaffna) trying to prove that you need the armies to base in the area to look after your security need like in the past?
Peace Keeping Force; this isn’t a new set of words for the people of our country. And i am sure specially the people of Jaffna very well aware of the differences between their own country armies and the outside peace Keeping Forces?
Can you list the differences?
But that is a different Peace Keeping Force i was talking about and i am sure that what you meant by ‘peace keeping force’ is a group of security officers specifically formed to address the need or the requirement you specified.
It is not only the duty but also the responsibility of every security force of the country to take care of each and every individual of the country.
And it is their responsibility to take accurate actions and follow necessary procedures to safe guard peace and harmony.
And any idiot can understand that it is also a huge responsibility of the leader of the country . Leading the armies and security forces by giving them freedom to do the job and otherwise liberty to involve in their duties studying the situations accurately and giving necessary support, providing guidance, motivating them adequately is also a responsibility, indescribable of any political leader of the country.
And if you need any outside groups other than the existing security support, local armies then form some groups consists of youth that like and respect peace and harmony and an advisory group consists of peace loving adults and then name it as PEACE KEEPING FORCE of Jaffna Penninsula ( PKFJP).
And kindly remember that you can use the experiences of past when writing your visions and missions of the PKF and try to convince the group members as to how and why it is important to support peace not arrogance.
Also please be causes when seeking from any support outside to country who expect to division you and I, people from their people / neighbours, forcing governments or outside agencies in order to establish two separate governing / admin areas. be aware of the agencies who comes to you, convincing you or saying to you that you are a ‘minority’ and your rights were spoiled or not addressed accurately or humanly.
Please remember almost every individual lives in the world belongs to an ethnic group or to a religious group or to both but every humans comes under one term called 'human beings' and the term minority is a poisonous term use to division humans from humans.
i remember reading the lady chairman of a organization who stands on behalf of the rights of minorities of the world visiting our country few months back.
now i like to say to the chairman with good wills and aims , objectives , first and foremost what you need to do is trying to remove the mentality or attitude of ‘we are a minority’, from the hearts and minds of each and every individual of any group you list as minorities.
when you find a well written set of words called ‘ HUMAN RIGHTS’ there is no need to address their issues separately, naming or calling it ‘ rights of minorities’. i like to say that dear madame it will become a curse or a spell if you continue to use that term. Kindly help or join or support ‘ Human Rights’ as a need of every human being.
i request and suggest first and foremost our friends, our siblings, our brothers and sisters, everyone need to eliminate / delete the term minority from your day to day vocabularies and start thinking and acting as ‘Sri Lankans’ not as anyone else.
According to my personal awareness no ethnic group is treated badly or unfairly or weirdly in this country.
if any individual or groups say so , i believe that what is behind using that term is a political will not something apolitical.
Now the youth of every geographical segment of the country must think of using their talents or do not try to become victims / subjects of arrogant groups who expects you to take guns into your hands instead of books and pens. Shame on you, if you are unable to maintain peace & harmony in the tiny land /peninsula it is truly something that you should think of. Compared with some of the other geographical areas of the country, peninsula is not massive or complex to handle.
i suggest Dear Youth of Penninsula support the Peace Keeping communities / groups / teams that the leaders are trying to form in the future (?) in order to protect peace and harmony of the entire community with a true ambition and a will.
And who doesn’t know that it will help the people of the entire country to live in peace and harmony without worrying about you all the time. Do not step back and do not support any aggressiveness in the area.
Haven’t you learn any lessons from the past?
The university Students of Jaffna has a responsibility and a huge role to play as members of Peace Keeping Force (PKFJP). The arrogant past took away your life from your lives. Do not let it happen again.
i like to ask every singular group who live outside to country, forgetting all your luxuries come settle in the country and join every single family who didn’t think of escaping or think of running away from the situations but faced the situation bravely. Now why you need to sustain as a diaspora anymore what bars you have to come settle in the country. You were officially & governmentally and publicly invited to come settle in the country, hope you can remember it very well.
Mr. Vigneshwaran, sir, perhaps you had some fare reasons to ignore participating the public event organized in the peninsula (Ill?) but let us hope you face no troubles during such invitations. I was so happy to read about your present at the public event organized in southern part of the country as chief guest and that helped to erase misunderstandings from some of the people of the country.
wish you all peace of mind.
Thank you for reading.
