The Beginning of Sinhala-Buddhist Terrorism
January 14, 2009
This is from a little chat I had with Gayan. Excuse the typos.
gayan: sin-bud terrorisam?
me: it was here a long time since
gayan: aaah..nw only its getting some limelight… cos all the time the light was on the tamil-catholic terrorism??
me: yep. two sides of the same coin
gayan: yes. they get what they sow..
me: not only they. we’re also getting what we deserve
gayan: we are already at the receiving end ney…so wnt make that much of a differecne…
whether we get hammered from praba or gota…I dnt think it will be any bit different…
me: it’s not about praba or gota
to praba we only lost land,
to sinhala-buddhism we’re losing our soul
gayan: naaaaaa…. we lost it in 56… with SWRD…
me: that was the beginning
gayan: and now is where it ends..
me: I wonder whehter it’s already over
gayan: no soul..no conscience, no problems
me: no life
gayan: yes…….. not like we had one anyway
so its a no loss
me: only the budget deficit
gayan: the draconian iranians will keep us afloat for a few years…after that who cares….
me: live for the moment and die another day?
gayan: well…. lets go where the wind blows…get too attached, die a magoot
me: the buddha spoke in similar lines i believe, with a little more prolixity
gayan: aaah…tough times, call for less sublime words
me: my frustration is that I feel completely powerless
gayan: power to do what?
me: No amount of reasoning can stop this Sinhala Terrorism
The more you fight it, the more stonger it becomes
gayan: something born out of unreasoned minds, cant be stopped by reason alone
sometimes things need to run their natural course…. different races learn in different ways….
take the germans…it took them 2 world wars and millions of deaths to understand that they just cant conquer the world…
like wise, let SL take its natural course…. maybe we will take 2000 years, but if it takes that much of time, it MUST take that much of time
me: It’s times like these when I wish that I was born a little later in human civilization
but anyway wut to do no?
u will again have ur chance in another 100 or more years..
