    I think Sri Lankan Tamils prefer greener pastures like Canada and Australia than 3rd world India though... :)

    This land offers nothing to them. They are better off in societies like Canada, UK, Australia etc.

    Any Jew can enter and live in Israel. Similarly any Tamil can come and live in Tamil nadu.

    By the way any northerner living in TN who has not acquired basic conversation and reading skills in Tamil within 1 year should be deported to where they came fromn.

    I agree with the idea..that any Tamil must be able to come and live here. But what has the country/state done for them.. or in other words what special benefit do they get by coming here ? Nothing. Admit it, we have failed them.

    But if they go to Canada or Australia as refugees, they are offered initial money and state support till they are able to stand on their feet as honorable citizens and not as refugees.

    Sri lankan tamils and people from other countries arriving on boats aren't really welcomed in Australia because people see them as queue jumpers and most of them end up at Christmas island or refugee camps in the mainland.The biggest problem is most of the people don't have enough documentation or discard it for obvious reasons.

    The issue of Boat people is the hottest potato in Ozi politics.

    Yes, that can be done on a case by case on humanitarian basis preferably when they don't show terrorist tendencies. LTTE thugs can rot in Sri Lanka.

    SL tamils don't have the same feeling for Indian tamils like Indian tamiks have for SL tamils.

    Hmmm...Maybe the policy has changed now. But there are many Lankan refugees in Australia who were allowed in the past and I was basing my post on that. Also UK and Canada are other places that granted asylum to the Tamils and I stand by what I said ~ that they should choose to go there rather than live as third class citizens here without access to basic amenities because citizenship is not afforded to them.

    And you know this, exactly how ? How many Indian or Lankan Tamils have you interacted with ? Have you gone to their camps, spoke with them in their language, heard their stories...? Anything ?

    Sure some Lankan Tamils have an antipathy towards us because our failure to stand by them when it mattered and some of the Indian tamils also have a antipathy towards them like Subramanian swamy etc. But that in no way transalates into the feelings of the majority on both side. We are people of the same land, same soil.

    And this myth along with another - that of Greater Eelam are BS stories spread by vested interests to justify the inaction of the central govt to stop the massacre and continue the mollycoddling of the sinhalese. Dont expect us, people who know the ground realities, to fall for it.

    Anyway there is saying in Tamil - even if the child disowns the parents, the feelings of the parents will remain the same.


    India many not have a responsibility...but as Tamils, we sure do have a responsibility.

    Yet Bangladeshis come and go freely as if this country is their baap ka maal.

    If we are giving citizenship to Hindus from Pakhanaland, why should Illangai tamils who suffered persecution at the hands of both the Sinhalese and LTTE, be denied the opportunity?
