  • POSTS -

    We have attempted to keep a tally of various articles of interest, as well as Sebastian Rasalingam's impassioned articles expressing a virtual lone-voice mainly about the hierarchic caste discrimination within Tamil society itself, and articles by a number of other writers like Thomas Johnpulle. However, as these writers publish in a variety of electronic and printed newspapers, the following list may not be complete, or may not indicate the original source. We also find that Sri Lankan electronic journals "borrow" from each other without indicating the original source!. The articles are merely listed here for ease of access. They indicate an emerging pattern in the expression of dissenting Tamil opinion, perhaps associated with decreasing fear of the LTTE since 2006:
