THANK YOU FOR THE REPORT ON SRI LANKA.
These wretched people are of INDIAN origin and were sent there over a hundred years ago by the British rulers to do work on tea plantations.
Similarly INDIANS were sent to East Africa, Fiji, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia, and so on to help the Empire run smoothly and profitably.
But while you have spoken like a lion in your programme (7 p.m.) for their human rights and DIGNITY there is INDIA, the land of their origin, in deafening SILENCE, cowardly neutrality and safe distance.
We are NOT aware of any stir in that vast sub continent, not even in TAMIL NADU (bigger than Portugal), to protest to Government of Sri Lanka or to send some boats to evacuate them from the war zone.
Decomposing Partitioned India's callous conduct and attitude towards the people of INDIAN origin are despicable and disgusting though at present there is a female Supreme Commander on top. Even she could not "relate" to these wretched Tamil women and girls being raped by Sri Lankan soldiers.
India's useless female President (the choice of Sonia Gandhi) is looking the other way hoping, "the time will pass and all the Tamils will be dead."
Help, support and comfort for these marooned TAMILS was so close at hand, yet so far.
We are not aware of even one Indian ("COOLIE") journalist who may have interviewed the Sri Lankan high commissioner in New Delhi with the passion, courage and concern as you did.
Indians at home and abroad would have felt shame if only they had some dignity left in them after 1,000 years of SLAVERY and SUBMISSION, and SUBMISSION.
You deserve FLOWERS. India’s Parliament, Prime Minister and Supreme Commander deserve SHOES, SHOES & SHOES.
