Rajanayagam, Editor, Tamil Times, and Solicitor, England and Wales, believes that these interventions were symbolic and were used by interested groups from the TULF to the LTTE to generate support.

note-7 With pre-1983 funds, Sri Lankan Tamil militants organized a shipment and an aircraft laden with weapons. Both these consignments were seized by the Egyptian and Greek authorities respectively. See Rohan Gunaratna, War and Peace in Sri Lanka, IFS, Colombo, 1990 p 45. Greek authorities seized 267 cases containing 300,000 automatic rifle bullets and 400 automatic rockets. The papers on board the plane that took off from East Berlin in July 1983 provided a Colombo address for the consignee. A firm in Switzerland was listed as the exporter and a firm in Britain as the broker. About the same time, Egyptian authorities seized IVYB with 92 machine guns, 200 half-pound blocks of TNT, 100 plastic caps, 35,000 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition and 3,200 Browning cartridges. The Colombo bound vessel, manned by two Asians, had false end user certificates from Nigeria.

SRI LANKA - HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL HERITAGE SRI LANKA'S HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL HERITAGE covers more than 2,000 years. Known as Lankathe "resplendent land"in the ancient Indian epic Ramayana, the island has
numerous other references that testify to the island's natural beauty and wealth. Islamic folklore maintains that Adam and Eve were offered refuge on the island as solace for their
expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Asian poets, noting the geographical location of the island and lauding its beauty, called it the "pearl upon the brow of India." A troubled nation in
the 1980s, torn apart by communal violence, Sri Lanka has more recently been called India's "fallen tear." Sri Lanka claims a democratic tradition matched by few other developing countries, and since its independence in 1948, successive governments have been freely elected. Sri Lanka's
citizens enjoy a long life expectancy, advanced health standards, and one of the highest literacy rates in the world despite the fact that the country has one of the lowest per capita

youth have usurped their place in history and in Negotiating regional powers withthem has no meaning security concerns of the larger sri Lankan nation run
The political structure of Sri Lanka is based on the concept of the center sharing power with the regions. This article explores the security implications of regional power due to the geopolitics of the Delhi/Tamil Nadu nexus, and also the relevance of regional power vis-a-vis the divided leadership within the Tamil community. To the LTTE, regional power is irrelevant because of their dedication to the creation of a separate state. If this is not an immediate possibility, regional power today would be of meaning only if it holds the promise of a separate state tomorrow. As far as the Tamil leadership in Colombo is concerned, the concept of regional power is irrelevant because this leadership does not represent a region to which power can be assigned. As a concept, regional power cannot be considered in isolation. It has to be considered within the geopolitics of the region. For instance, the powers to be assigned to the regions have a direct bearing on the security of Sri Lanka because of the cross border linkages that exist between the Tamils in Sri Lanka and the Tamils in Tamil Nadu. Many have commented that these linkages are not a constraint, and that they arise from a "minority complex" among the Sinhala People despite their numerical majority in Sri Lanka. A recent assurance was "... fear that the demand for an "Eelam" or next best alternative is a step in the direction of "Enosis" with Tamilnadu is misplaced" (Ranita Hensman, 10/28/98, Island, "Tamil Homeland Concept").

      < BACK TO HISTORY CONTENTS Figure 1. Administrative Divisions of Sri Lanka, 1988 Sri Lanka was not immune to the spirit of the global and monumental change that swept the world in the late 1980s, promising to usher in a new international order in the 1990s. Indeed, at this writing events on the troubled island nation somehow seemed more under control than they had been in the immediate past. Yet Sri Lanka still had to cope with many of the same daunting and unresolved security problems that it faced in 1983, when a vicious separatist war broke out in the northa situation later aggravated by an altogether different but equally debilitating insurrection in the south. Sri Lanka's descent into violence was especially disturbing because for many years the nation was considered a model of democracy in the Third World. A nation with one of the world's lowest per capita incomes, Sri Lanka nevertheless had a nascent but thriving free-market economy that supported one of the most extensive and respected education systems among developing countries. Sadly, in 1990 the recollection of a peaceful and prosperous Sri Lanka seemed a distant memory. Prospects for an enduring peace, however remote, lingered as the new decade began. On February 4, 1990, as Sri Lanka celebrated its forty-second Independence Day, the president, Ranasinghe Premadasa, who had assumed power a little over one year before, once again appealed directly to the island nation's more than 16 million people for an end to the long-standing communally based friction between the majority Sinhalese and the largest ethnic minority group, the Sri Lankan Tamils. He also pleaded for a cessation of the internecine struggle among competing groups within the Tamil community and of the open warfare by Sinhalese extremists against the government. The collective strife on the island nation, according to international human rights groups, had over the previous year alone taken as many as 20,000 lives and over the span of a decade killed thousands more. The economy was crippled, the democratic values of the country threatened, and the national memory scarred.

    By Kumari Jayawardhana
    (Date: Oct 1987) The violent ethnic conflict that has ravaged Sri Lanka for a decade resulted in an agreement between the governments of Sri Lanka and India - the `Indo-Sri Lanka Agreement - to establish peace and normalcy in Sri Lanka' (signed on 29 July 1987) and the Provincial Councils Act (providing for regional autonomy) passed in parliament in November 1987. What has begun as an essentially domestic problem, arising from a minority ethnic group's attempts to overcome acts of discrimination and oppression, acquired over time a regional and an international dimension; it had ultimately to be resolved by the intervention of a regional power with the support of all the major world powers, but with opposition from both Sinhala and Tamil militants in Sri Lanka.
    It is perhaps ironic that one of the most unfortunate ethnic wars of recent times should occur in Sri Lanka, an island reputed to have had a peaceful transition from `model colony' to stable Third World state achieving international praise for its excellent quality of life and democratic institutions. These were factors which made Sri Lanka a `country of concentration' for several aid donors, and after 1977, increased private foregin investment. All these expectations were seriously eroded by years of carnage and destruction when the `emerald isle' of tourists literature turned blood red. The civil war not only killed off thousand of innocent people (Sinhala, Tamil, and Muslim) and brutalized civil society, giving rise to a climate of chauvinist hysteria and intolerance, but also left in its wake little alternative except outside intervention.

Some prefer to call this tropical island the "The island of death". The 18 years of tragic conflict has claimed some 60,000 lives and the war has become a way of life in Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, more and more people have a vested interest in ensuring that it continues. Fortunes continue to be built on the war. The Sinhalese, who outnumber the Tamils five to one, could long ago have introduced conscription to overwhelm the Tigers by sheer weight of numbers. They have chosen not to. While fashionably dressed teens learn to drive their new Alfa Romeos in Colombo, and the smartly dressed young women are sitting around, sipping wine, giggling and watching male dance-strippers in swanky bungalows in posh parts of Colombo , the burden of war sacrifice falls on the poor, uneducated villagers of southern Sri Lanka, who have provided most of the estimated 18,000 troops killed so far. Funding to the Tigers comes partly from the movement's worldwide chain of businesses, including shipping lines, travel agencies, shops and money changers, augmented by clandestine weapons and drugs smuggling. Over 7000,000 Tamil-speaking Sri Lankans are now living abroad and also fund the tigers. Pundits say expatriates give out of a sense of guilt over their affluence and security abroad, a tendency to romanticise a distant conflict, and fear."
