Watch this News…. and you will Understand, How Srilankan Government and Indian Media are trying to cheat the people of World. The objective of SLA is to divert the attention of International Bodies from Civilians being killed by SLA just by spreading this FALSE Prabhakaran’s death news.

If you don’t understand TAMIL, here is the Jist.
The body shown is not prabhakaran’s cos of the following reasons.
1. He doesn’t have big eyebrows, but the dead body has two big.
2. Prabhakaran is already 54 and the dead body looks like 40 years, with soft clean shaven skin.
2. If his body was taken from water only yesterday morning, how can they do a DNA test in 3 hrs, which generally takes 3-4 days
3. Day 1 SLA said, they killed the Tamil leader, when he was fleeing in an ambulance, but now, they are taken this body from deep waters.

Anyways…. He will show BACK that he is ALIVE.

The Real Culprits behind Sri Lankan War
Monday, May 18, 2009, 12:20 AM GMT

Birds have now stopped singing in a land called Vanni. Sun, moon and the stars in the sky have hidden their faces. Angel of death flew over the skies of Vanni and took the lives of more than twenty five thousand innocent Tamil men, women and children in a single day.

Thousands of wounded are still crying out for help. They are bleeding to death on the streets. They have touched neither water nor food for days. Nobody has come to rescue them. Those who fight for the rights of the animals and those who preach about Buddha and Mahatma have no compassion for the dying Tamils.

Chinese weapons, Indian intelligence, Sinhala Armed personals and racist Sri Lankan leaders came together to perform one of the most cruel war that has cost the lives of many thousands innocents.

While thousands of innocent children and women are facing painful and slow death, Sinhala Buddhist extremists are celebrating victory with flags and fire crackers in the south of the country.

War that was started with hidden agendas of local and international forces, went on for months not just with the strength of the weapons but with well organised false propaganda done by the Sri Lankan officials.

This war was orchestrated and staged with lies and deceptions from the beginning till the end.

Sri Lankan leaders are still vomiting out worms of lies
Rulers of Sri Lanka are continuing to vomit out worms of lies to justify their atrocities against innocent lives. They started with “War on Terror” but changed the buzz word to “Humanitarian Operation” in order to deceive the international community. “War on Terror” was an accepted norm during the Bush era but lost it’s validity now. Therefore they had changed the name of the game to “Humanitarian operation”

Why do they lie?
Because they have many hidden agendas behind this dirty war. They want to hide the atrocities that are being committed against innocent civilians. They themselves know, what they are doing is wrong and not acceptable in a civilised world.

Above everything they want to protect India who are orchestrating the war in Sri Lanka. Indian intelligent agents and military experts are working closely with the Sri Lankan forces in the war zone.

How do they manage to lie?
They simply hide the truth. When the truth is hidden what comes out is lie.

Foreign journalists and aid workers are barred from the war zone and IDP camps. Those who try to enter and report about the war, are kicked out of the country if they are critical of the government.

Local journalists are intimidated, tortured and sometime killed. Telling the truth is considered a crime in Sri Lanka.

Phone lines are tapped. Web sites are blocked. Anybody who talk against the government is considered as Terrorist or Terrorist supporter.

In the war front, dead bodies of the civilians are burned to ashes using powerful chemicals. This is to hide the number of innocent civilians that have perished in the war.

Sri Lankan government officials very often organise staged visits to the IDP camps and force the refugees to lie to the foreign diplomats.

What did they lie about?
They lied about the objective of the war, weapons used, number of civilian causalities and military operations.

Although they initially claimed that the objective of the war was to defeat the LTTE, they have in fact killed and wounded several thousands of innocent Tamil civilians with heavy weapons. They used chemical weapons and cluster bombs on innocents, but they continue to deny the usage of such weapons.

Sri Lankan forces have destroyed Schools, hospitals and farm lands and made the whole place into a graveyard for the Tamils. This is also regularly denied by the Sri Lankan authorities.

This war has claimed more than fifty thousands lives just within the last few months but the Sri Lankan government is not going to open their mouth and tell this truth to the world.

Why didn’t the UN intervene?
United Nations, who is supposed to be a guardian for the oppressed people in the world turned out to be a silent spectator of a man made disaster that has taken the lives of many thousands.

There is a conspiracy behind this whole war game. China was initially blocking every attempt that was made by UK and France to discuss the Sri Lankan issue in the Security Council.

Ban Ki-moon’s chief of staff Vijay Nambiar was sent to Sri Lanka to organise a cease fire. He failed to secure a ceasefire and returned back after meeting the Sri Lankan and Indian officials.

Interestingly Vijay Nambiar couldn’t achieve anything constructive in his visit and he had also refused to meet the reporters.

This `unbiased` negotiator, who appears to actually be on the payroll of the Sri Lankan government, though indirectly, something that is obviously known to the United Nations. Vijay Nambiar`s brother (Satish Nambiar) is a paid consultant for the Sri Lankan army, and has been since 2002. Is there any link between the UN and the Sri Lankan army`s paid consultant?

UN has once again proved to the world that it is no longer a trust worthy international body that can protect the vulnerable.

They have all achieved what they wanted
What we are witnessing in Sri Lanka is neither “war on terror” nor a Humanitarian operation. This is simply a racist war against the Tamils conducted with the help of India and China. You wouldn’t shoot at the passengers and bomb the whole bus, if you had to rescue the hostages.

Sinhala extremists are already celebrating and they have also started to intimidate Tamils in the South of the country.

India and China have started to work on their hidden agendas in Sri Lanka.

Tamils all over the world are mourning the death of their loved ones back home.

What Next?
When the rocket scientists designed highly complex derivatives and greedy traders traded these new emperors cloths, many investment banks collapsed. Pension funds lost money. Bankers committed suicide.

The whole financial disaster was caused by greedy and selfish individuals who had short term hidden agendas.

We took action. Greedy bankers and traders were taken to courts. New rules and regulations are now in place to prevent this happening again.

In the same way, the masters of this war in Sri Lanka should be brought to justice.

Sinhala government with racist agendas , China and India with their strategic interests and UN with corrupt officers are the evil ingredients of this dirty war that has cost the lives of many thousands innocent Tamils.

Leaders of Sri Lanka and some responsible officers in the UN, should be questioned in international courts in order to find out if they were responsible for the deaths of innocent Tamils.

If we didn’t, we would end up seeing more of such evil games repeated over and over again.

Hmm.. with a heavy heart… waiting to see something something good happening to the people there.

I’m not a vegetarian by birth, but, vegetarian by choice for the last 8 years. I never had a necessity to write this all along but now, after a pathetic dinner service last night at Hotel Empire and a sad breakfast service at Koshy’s this morning.

We(Rammorrison, Karthik, Ram and I) were in a hurry on our way to Skandagiri and decided to finish our dinner at MG Road zone itself. We kinda got some parking space opposite Hotel Empire and managed to get a table as well. My problem started with looking for a good veg dish from the menu in a hard-core non veg restaurant. Karthik and I being veg, ordered 2 veg appam’s and a curd rice. Instead of serving appam first, they served curd rice (sad) and we had to eat as we were hungry. The non veg food including the chicken kebab were served faster than the veg appam. :(.

In less than 24 hours, an other bad experience for me on the food thing. This morning after a tiring trek at skandagiri, we all headed to Koshy’s for the break fast. Koshy’s play a major role in the Bangalore food circuit for decades together now, but, made be sad with their service this morning. Karthik and I were again made to wait for 25mins, as we ordered veg sandwich, when the vegetable omlettes and double fried eggs with pepper were served faster.

So the thought for the day was simple.
Never go to a Non-Veg restaurant to eat Veg food, if you go, don’t expect a better service on the Veg orders.
