DBSJeyaraj Goes Intermestic, Credits India For Elimination Of LTTE

Over and Over


How intermeshed we are. As the heading says, that is what DBSJeyaraj, in his brilliant way of writing is doing. Some how I fail to grasp the true meaning of what he is saying. I learn something evertime he write something on Sri Lanka.

But I don’t buy every thing he says either, India may have wanted LTTE gone, but I doubt it was the largest morsel on their plate as DBSJeyaraj wants us to believe. India sure did play a major role, but even DBSJeyaraj not able ponit out exactly what the roles are. It is also understandable, ‘cos I doubt all these governments share everything with him.

What is more interesting than his writing is the comment deluge the articles attract. Perhaps because he is a great journalist and writer, he knows how to write. He can take one on a run with his ability to mix true facts with some not so straight ideas and have all believing, everything.

He does publish most reader comments, I said most because I know he did not publish a few comments I left on his site. They were not abusive comments but I was questioning some of his uttering. Perhaps he thought, I was seeking SEO link seeking blogger. But in that case he only helped me. If that is the case, you can search for DBSJeyaraj or DBS Jeyaraj on Google and you will find on the first results page, usually. So now I turn my comments on DBSJeyaraj‘s Articles to posts like this one.

If it was for another reason, I do not know what it is. Perhaps he did not like my moniker, ‘cos it is not his “Magerata” 🙂 . I leave comments on Groundviews too, some I agree and most I disagree. I am careful not be abusive to the writer nor the commentors. I do not hesitate to write, what I feel, think and infer, in my broken English. It does not mean that I hate another person or disrespect.

So I will continue to read, and comment. If you are interested, you can follow DBS Jeyaraj on Google search above and read his latest post.


General Still At War

In magerata on February 10, 2010 at 1:14 pm

Looks like General SF is still at war. DBS Jeyaraj has posted a nice account of the event of his arrest.  I could not leave a comment though, system refused my comment! But I did comment or pulled a coup d’etat on Indi’s blog. As usual SittngNut had his own way of expressing the arrest of SF.

All are good reads but DBSJ’s article takes you for a walk through of the arrest.

Those like me could say, He should have not protested the arrest as resisting arrest itself is a charge because it is better to fight it over at the courts! (I have no knowledge of Sri Lankan military tribunals) but it is promised that he will be provided with what is necessary to defend himself.

Others can cry foul and talk about the mistreatment of  one of Sri Lanka’s heros. I personally do not know what he did to become a hero. If anyone want to tell me because he won the war, yes he and hundreds thousands of others. And the general is known to mistreat his own subordinates. May be some of those who arrested him from that group. Revenge comes from different directions.

What ever the case, I hope people can talk about this justice / injustice in a civil manner, without pulling out the reserved vocabulary on your opponents. We want to reduce  the tension not increase.

If you are really passionate, get a license and hold a protest rally, peacefully. You want let your ideas and ideals known, not destroy your neighbors house because he hoisted a blue flag. (Don’t come to my house, we have a fierce Chihuahua!)

One thing Lord Buddha preached was that “Everyone has potential to become a Buddha so treat everyone as you would treat a Buddha”. I know most of those in the land wearing saffron robes would not even know that, but you know now.
