Sri Lanka: The Politics of Tamil Eelam

Vibhuti Singh Shekhawat (Author)
Synopsis This book vividly narrates the events of Sri Lankan ethnic feud between Sinhala majority and Tamil minority and depicts the causes of this prolonged insurgency. Ethnolinguistic differentiation is the crucial causal factor of this conflict which impelled the Tamils to take to arms and demand an independent homeland, the Tamil Eelam. Both communities share the blame equally, one for being obdurately intolerable and the other for reacting with a sense of injured pride. Eventually it became an existential dilemma for both and a no-holds barred campaign of calumny and blame-game ensued which eventually culminated in a bloody strife accounting for a heavy toll of human life and loss of property. With insurgency having finally abated, it is time for both sides to indulge in deep delving to prevent the recurrence of this tragic saga. Hopefully both sides have learnt their bitter lessons and would act cautiously in future. Accommodation and adjustments are the sure recipies of preventing the vivisection of island nations.
