    Why both of you with such a good understanding of human rights and freedom at least once tell that LTTE is to be blamed for most of the suffring Sri Lankans’ had to endure. Along with the TNA why cannot you get LTTE to give up the arms struggle and enter into dialogue to solve our problems. The enormous wealth we destroy for funding the war on both sides can be put to better use for the benefit of innocent citizens of Sri Lanka.

    Young Guruparan, keep the flame burning. You have something inside you that will blossom to benefit the mankind. I admire your sense of calm maturity evenwhile growing up in an environment of nasty hostility. Keep going where your inner mission takes you..
