    Because Tamils don't have a historical homeland in Sri Lanka. But they have a one in Tamilnadu. That's what bothering me.

    Because Sri Lanka don't have ethnic divisions like in India. Sri Lanka is only a historical homeland of Sinhalese.

    They do, They have bee living for more than 100 years. If it werent Sinhalese wont have right over Island too. Maybe only tribes like Vedda would have rights over Island. Considering some genetic studies show that Sinhalese originated from Kalinga area.

    So living more than 100 years gives them right to the land they live on? So within next few years Indians could ask for separate homeland from British or Canadians maybe?

    What makes you think that Veddha's need to have the full right over the island?

    Sorry for mentioning 100 years. New refernce materials predates their existence much much before, which in understandble, because tamils could "walk" into Lanka anytime via Ram Setu feature adam's /bridge, considering in ancient times, that place was very shallow. Tamil Nadu being neighboring of Lanka, would have arrived much earlier in Lanka before Kalinga origin Sinhalese. Some of the Vedda tribes in north Lanka, one of the original Lankan tribes, adopted Tamil culture in ancient times, points to the fact. So if you deny Tamils right over Island, same can be said for Sinhalese. So only abroginals would be orignals owners, isnt it? By that logic, all Pakis would need to be kicked out of Pakistan and thrown into Arabian sea, as their nativity cant be established to Indian subcontinent, by their own account

    The sinhalas who are claiming the Island are migrants from Orissa and Kerala !

    Tamils have a history of thousands of years.

    So are their any Sinhalese in Orissa or Kerala? Like to see them.

    Tamils have a history of thousands years in Tamilnadu. Not in Sri Lanka. The most funny thing is that the so called thousand year old people don't even have a capital city or any kind of ruins to show to the world. Very peculiar.

    Walking into Sri Lanka and going back doesn't count in nation states. What we need is a people who has civilized a certain area for a long period of time to claim it as their own. Unfortunately for Sri Lanka Tamils, they don't have such a civilization.

    So again, if Sinhalese came from India; where are the Sinhalese of India living today?

    Veddha tribes adopted Tamil culture? Are you nuts? They had their own culture. They lived in jungles away from civilizations. How can they acquire Tamil culture?

    As I said before it was only Sinhalese who has created an civilization in the island. Not anyone else. It gives Sinhalese a holy right to the island.

    Besides that your whole aboriginal original owners' hypothesis lacks any logic.

    Are you brain dead? I'm talking about Sri Lanka. Not about Cholas. You Indians seems to lack any kind of brain power lately? Too much cricket maybe the cause.

    Answer directly next time. Or else it is not worth commenting to your post.

    You are overlooking my questions. Please answer them.
