Greetings from SIVANANDA ORPHANAGE a charitable organization near Chennai India.This mail comes to you specially pleading for the welfare of 300 orphans with the confidence you will consider our request to host a banner in your site. Your help in this regard will go long way in our efforts to provide upliftment for the orphans in our care. We hope many who log on your site will learn about the humanitarian work we do in this part of the world and offer their support.
Our Institution "SIVANANDA ORPHANAGE" is a non-profit NGO with the primary objective of protecting orphans, destitute women, the physically
handicapped, AIDS-affected children, and the elderly and providing them with shelter, food, and free education. An institution with 50 years of recorded services to thousands of poor orphans, we have helped them to become self-supporting responsible and productive citizens. We not only provide food, education and shelter, but also instill character and morals to help them grow responsibly, learn a means for livelihood and eventually become independent.

Our orphanage currently has free schooling up to x standard. In order to impart technical skills to deserving orphans we wish to start a technical education school like an industrial training institute or a polytechnic.

Subject: Re: sweeping statements are most slanderous

K.S.SivakumaranDear Ms. Ramakrishnan Latha: Greetings. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a response to my observations sent to Pathivugal. Thank you. Let me make two observatios in the first plce:

One: Your Knowledge of contemporary Thamil Liteature is astounding.
Two:  Your style of writibg in English is befitting.

Here are my responses to your criticisms of my piece: If you think that my generaliations on Little Magazines are tantamount to ' worst form of slander ', its o.k. Maybe, I should have explained in detail my premises. Since I wanted only to spotlight what I felt was obvious, I briefly confined myself to the basics. Anyway, I take your findings that mine were 'sweeping statements'

However, I still hold that some of the poets in Thamilnadu have been overated and that includes former Lankan writer Dharuma Civaramoo. It's true some of the latter's poems had memorable lines and yet a few had freshness of seeing things in different lights. But the main point is that his contribution as a short story writer outshines his role as a poet or a ' literay critic'

I think you misunderstood what I said about the 'Little Magazines'. Earlier  literary magazines did contribute to the enrichment of contemporary Thamil literature, but with the quarrel between the two people referred accelerated the ugly scene of attacks bordering on slander. You may disagree. At the sametime  the unwelcome tendency, a few current 'Little Magazines'   were discreet and maintained the standards  Credit, true, should be given to those journals.

I agree with you that if I don't read these magazines, I stand to lose. I shall try to keep abrest with these magazines whih are not readily available in my litle island. Again, there is a misconception on your part in equating my comments to the anarchical tendencies of both writers - Dharma Civaramoo and Venkat Swaminathan  - to  a comparison of both of them as literary figures. I did not compare their relative literary merits. I only referred to their peronal vendetta for each other.

Thank you for enlightening me on Venkat Swaminathan's recent writings, which I learn from you, are a continuum  of his old practice of unfair judgements. In the same breath, we must acknowledge the fact that we cannot totally dismiss the individual psitive contributions of both of them in the field of Thamil writing.

It was refreshing to read an intelligent response from a sensitive reader. I thank you for that.

Incidentally, I have a feeling that I wrote to you sometime back on the suggestion of Pathivugal Editor, Mr.V.N.Giritharan on some matter regarding e-zine, but I wasn't lucky enough to get a reply from you. I wish to contribute in Thamil as well, but unfortunately, I cannot type in Thamil. Hence I write in English only to ' Pathivugal '

With Kind regards

P.S.:  Please read my book in Thamil ( published by Manimekalai Prasuram  of Chennai) titled " India-Ilankai Ilakkiyam -Oru Kannottam" for an article on Dharuma Civaramoo. The same publishers published a book where I express my own interpretation or understanding of 'Literary Criticism'.The title of the book is " Thiranaivu Entra Enna?"

Subject: sweeping statements are most slanderous

Latha Ramakrishnandear Mr.Sivakumaran and the Editor of Pathivukal, Greetings. I happened to read your (Mr.Sivakumaran's) letter expressing concern over slander-campaign in the name of literary criticism. While the concern is shared, some of your observations do not go well with your concern. Such sweeping statements as 'Pramil is not a poet at all'  and that Tamil Little Magazines nurture and thrive on slanderous campaigns are but worst form of slanderous campaign. Over the years and against all odds and with absolutely  no official patronage  the Tamil Little Magazines have been contributing a lot towards the enrichment of Modern Tamil Literature. It is unfair to overlook all those and make them appear to be as harbingers  and storehouses of nothing but slanderous campaigns and personal attacks. Mr.Sivakumaran has the liberty to stop reading Tamil Little Magazines. But, he should know that the loss is more his. And , his comparing Mr.Venkat Swaminathan with poet Pramil is rather unwarranted and unfair, for Poet Pramil was primarily a creative writer. Also, Mr.Sivakumaran makes it appear that of the two Mr.Venkat Swaminathan is better and that of late he has stayed above personal prejudices in his critical evaluations, which is not at all true. To cite an instance, in one of his recent publication - a collection of  critical essays he has chosen to give only his attacks, remarks and observations and not the fitting rejoinders to them that have followed suit. Same way, in one of the recent issues of 'Kaalam', while going ga-ga over Poet Rajamarthandan's 'anthology of Modern Tamil Poems, Mr.
Venkat Swaminathan observes that there are those who ask the poets themselves to send their 'best-poems' and such compilations would prove to be the mixture of dish in the bowl of the beggar. He may have his aversion against those who leave the selection in the hands of the poets themselves while those concerned may believe that the poets know best which is their best, but in his fervour to attack  'this approach' the way he brings in the beggar and his bowl with not the least social concern doesn't speak well on his worthiness as a critic. On the other hand, Poet Pramil's many poems champion the cause of the underprivileged. There is nothing wrong in discussing matters threadbare. And those who indulge in personal attacks will be exposing their own calibre and if required they should be exposed by others. Such strong approaches also have a place in critical evaluation. So, one cannot categorize all such strong-worded literary wranglings as unwanted and unwarranted. Lots to say on this issue. But, i conclude for  the time being with a simple suggestion- why not make the 'English Section' open to all? 

regards/latha ramakrishnan
[Dear Latha Ramakrishnan, thanks for your comments. We have no intention to open an English section to all at the moment. We will only be publishing english entries from those who aren't capable of typing their pieces in Tamil. Howvever we have no objection in starting an English section if any one is able to pose as the editor for this portion of 'Pathivukal'.- editor]

Subject: Literary Criticism or Slanderous Condemnation?

K.S.SivakumaranThank you very much for including my contributions in English in your much patronized website. As a very useful e-zine, it introduces several aspects of contemporary Thamil cultural scene to the world at large. My dear friend, I cannot  type in Thamil even now. If only I could type in Thamil, I can send by e-mail my cotributons in Thamil to your respected website.

In the name of literary criticism a few write in bad taste. This is because they understand the word 'criticism or vimarsanam' as condemnation and slander. It's for this reason, I don't use the word ' vimarsanam' to decribe my pieces. I prefer 'Thiranaivu' instead. And since I write literary columns having in mind the uninitiated, i call myself 'Paththi Eluthaalar'.

Attacking each other in too personal a manner started in Thamilnadu with Venkat Swaminathan and Tharuma Civaramoo in the late 1960s.They were both my friends. One has passed away. I never considered Tharumas civaramu as a literary critic or a poet. But I felt he had some original ideas as an essayist. Venkat Swaminathan was a avery widely read man in English as well, and he had his own way of writing critical notes, but he too gave  a lot of weightage to condemnation than appreciation. However in his latterly pieces, he seems to have got rid of the bent on personal attacks.

The trend initiated then by Venkat Swaminathan and Tharuma Civarmu led to a ugly scene ravishingly follwed by ' little magazines' in Thamilnadu. Since then I stopped reading Thamilnadu 'Little Magazines'.This has resulted in the younger generation in Thamilnadu not knowing me. Lankan Thamil younger generation in their absense of knowledge in English took as models the Thamilnadu Little Magazine 'critics' and started writing in that fashion- viz- condemnation is equal literary criticism.

This is my point of view. There would be many of your readers who would not agree with my observations. I can only salute them for their views and wouldn't argue with them.

What prompted me to write this letter- you may publish it, -if it serves a purpose or ignore it - was my reading the page allocated to your correspondents.

My request: Please do not entertain slanderous material unless critical observations are supported with evidences. ( You have rightly said this already in your editor's note)

Best wishes to all

Subject: Your Recent Editorial Note

Dear Giritharan, Since I want to write to you, I am not sending this to Thilga Bama's Blog.   I am not commenting anything against the arguments of Rajayanahem. 

1.  He has not indicated the replies of Vaigai Selvi first as a preface to his letter, as you have done now.

2. I am surprised you did not comment on his wild words like Hypocrites, Psychos, Paranoid delusions,  Philistines etc.  The whole article  [100%]  is a personal attack, rather than an argumentative write up.  I wonder you call this a counter opinion & people are afraid to hear Rajayahem's point of view.

3. It seems you justify the whole quality of the write up of Rajanayahem.  Your editorial note is incomplete.  Look at the word quality of Thilaga Bama's & Vaigai Selvi's articles.

Dear Giritharan, As we all feel embarrassed,  please remove at once the highly objectionable & vulgar open letter by Mr. Rajanayahem to Vaigai Sevli which is not an article but an eloquent form of harasssment of women in the true sense.  If he is a real man of honour & culture, he must apologize to Vaigai Selvi & Thilaga Bama without defending himself sweetly in his foreign language.   Also please indicate in the front page of its location the reason for its removal.

Subject: su.raa is misunderstood by dalit brothers

R.P.RAJANAYAHEMThis is very unfortunate that our dalit brothers have misunderstood a noble writer. when you read suraa's whole work you can find the noble heart of su.raa. he is a writer of great caliber and as a human being also he is a rare gentle man of the first order. please dont think i am glorifying him.  he is the most eligible writer to get any award. Reading between the lines leads to many confrontations. that is what happened in this remarkable short story "pillai keduthal vilai". this story is against the attitude of feudalistic atrocity and sympathetically defends thayammal. when you read with a pre-conditioned fixation you always  land in  pensiveness and abstraction. actually when i read this touching story, i couldn't even sleep and thayammal's pitiable situation was unforgettable. it recollected in me su.raa's another master piece ' kolongal' . in fact thangakann and sellathurai are identical to some extent to " puliyamarathin kathai " thomodhara aasan and laundry joseph.

I personally feel this misunderstanding  of our dalit brothers should never affect su.raa's creative ecstasy.it is miserable for his life time achievement he has to face these slanderous remarks.

I would like to point out that kalachuvadu has never done any harm at all to periyar, jeeva and neruda . when any body is having organisational delusions, dogma is unavoidable. you can publish this e mail as a rejoinder to aadhavan theetchanya's article.

I would like to quote the mighty lines of mathew arnold. " literature will take over the function of the religion in the future "

I am sending herewith a short story in Tamil for publication in your site. I am working as the Head of I.T. Dept. in a Private Sector Banks in Chennai. One of my favourite hobbies is writing short stories and poems in Tamil. Even though my work at the development centre (we develop software required by our Bank) keep me fully engaged during the day, writing at the end of the day keeps me relaxed. 

I happened to stumble upon your site during my daily browsing at home and I was very much attracted to some of the short stories  of Mr.Giridharan. His flowing style and simple narration  impressed me very much.

I learned from your site that you accept contributions from the readers as well. It gives beginners like me a chance to publish their creations. I declare that the enclosed story has not been published in the web so far.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Hello Pathivukal:  Pathivukal is an elegantly designed and progressive Tamil E-zine.  I usually am able to read it using IE; however, I now use Firefox as my
default.  Unfortunately, I am unable to read it using Firefox. Recently, I removed all TSC fonts because they separate Tamil Unicode glyphys in Firefox.  (I do have TSCu, TAM, and TAB in the font file.)  I am wondering how I would be able to read Pathivukal in Firefox.  (Note:  I am not running Murasu because it produces problems with some of my other SW).  Thank you for your time and consideration about this.  Continue your good work.

Interesting. You are telling us that there is something (may be  'athma' or 'awareness') exist in a living-being and capturing it is beyond our  reach and impossible. Many in the past (including religious scholars) tried to explain  this concept in a number of (boring or scary) ways. Your approach was simple and interesting, if not the best I've came across.

Messrs S.Nadesan QC, Jehan Perera, Dilesh Jayantha, C.Sivanesan and N.Shanmugathasan have offered cogent arguments in favour of comprehensive discretionary powers at regional level to the minorities in Sri Lanka. 

Mr.Nadesan has called for an emulation of the regional self-government evolved in China under the direction of the late Chairman Mao Zedong. An analysis of the Chinese model of autonomy by Mr.Nadesan appeared in Saturday Review (Jaffna) recently. We have nothing to add except to quote an extract from the Report by Peng Zhen on the Revised Chinese Constitution: 

Regional national autonomy within a unified country not only can ensure the lawful rights and interests of the minority nationalities and speed up the economic and cultural development of the areas they inhabit, but also serve to resist aggression and subversion from outside and guarantee the independence and prosperity of the country as a whole (5th National Peoples Congress, 1982, p.102). 

The system of regional autonomy introduced by President Nimmerie in the Sudan has been commended and recommended by Mr.Jehan Perera. His Exploring the Solution to the Communal Problems appeared in Saturday Review and in The Island which subsequently carried a rejoinder to his critic Lieutenant Colonel E.T.Fernando. We, ordinary servicemen, would not dare to trespass into the Sudanese soil for a desperate battle against Mr.Jehan Perera. 

Messrs Dilesh Jayantha and C.Sivanesan have come out with much force in support of the Swiss model of federal system. A short and sweet contribution by the former was published in Sunday Observer by late 1983. Very recently Saturday Review published a detailed article by the latter on the same topic. The Swiss federal system, however, is too popular to be reiterated here. 

Mr.N.Shanmugathasan has repeatedly drawn our attention to the Soviet model of self-government as defined and designed by Stalin. Saturday Review carried a series of articles written by him on this subject. His writings, however, deserve elaboration. 

The present article, while being a sequel to the above analyses of autonomy by our own political analysts, seeks, at first, to bring into focus how Marx, Lenin and Stalin viewed the movements for self-determination. This will be followed by an outline of the regional autonomy as existing in the Soviet Union. Towards the end of the article, a system of regional autonomy will be presented in emulation of the Soviet model with particular reference to the Northern and Eastern Provinces of Sri Lanka. 

No recourse has, however, been made to the Collected or Selected Works of Marx, Lenin and Stalin for gathering the material related to the theme. The author has, instead, opted to rely extensively on a monographic work which speaks volumes for Marxism, Leninism and Stalinism in relation to self-determination (Alfred Cobban, The Nation State and Self-determination, Collins, 1969, p.187-309). 

There are incidentally four references, two general and two specific, to Sri Lanka in the above book: 

i. The same problems of the multi-national State, but of a much more complicated kind, were presented in India and Ceylon (p.156).

ii. The policy of partition was not welcomed by the British State, which was faced with the same issue in many lands - in Canada South Africa, Ireland, Ceylon, India and Palestine (p.163).

iii. Ceylon has a communal problem which has brought about the failure of one constitution (p.237). 

iv. In Ceylon communal hostilities increased with the progress towards self-government and involved the breakdown of the constitution (p.241). 

The present writer has, also, made extensive use of an in-depth study for illustrating the Soviet system of self-government (Boris Topornin, The New Constitution of the USSR, Progress Publishers, 1980, p.148-169). What follows, then, is a synthesis on the Soviet experience in autonomy based entirely on the above and similar publications. In other words the following is an exercise in plagiarism right up to the point where Sri Lanka comes into the scene.

Marx and Engels originally held that Workers have no fatherland and that They must form a Workers International. True to their original stance, they opposed the Irish, Polish, Finnish and Norwegian national movements for self-determination. But they did so only at the beginning. Later, they saw in national movements a step towards the proletarian revolution. 

By 1872 Marx was prepared to admit that special regard must be paid to the institutions, customs and traditions of various lands. In 1875 he emphasized the national setting of the class struggle, and declared Socialism must achieve its victory first of all in particular countries. 

Since self-determination for (1)Ireland, (2)Poland and (3)Finland and Norway meant truncation, respectively, of  (1)British, (2)Russian and (3)Swedish autocratic empires, and elevation of bourgeoisie in the former colonies, Lenin found in self-determination a step towards democracy and revolution. That was why he criticized Rosa Luxembergs condemnation of the separation of Norway from Sweden. Lenin argued, more realistically, that there was a democratic content in the nationalism of every oppressed nation, and that in this respect it should be supported, in spite of its bourgeois character. 

Similarly he saw in the victory of the Servs and Bulgars in the Balkan Wars the destruction of Balkan feudalism and the creation of a more or less free class of peasants, land-owners, which inasmuch as it represented a step forward, was to be applauded. 

Just as Lenin had identified a progressive phenomenon in the process of national self-determination (secession), so did Stalin locate a similar feature in regional self-determination (autonomy). 

According to Stalin A nation is a historically evolved stable community of language, territory, economic life and psychological make-up manifested in a community of culture. He further asserted A nation has the right to arrange its life on the basis of autonomy. It has the right to enter into federal relations with other nations. It has the right to complete secession. Nations are sovereign, and all nations are equal. 

Stalin, however, preferred autonomy to secession. In his view, Regional autonomy does not deal with a fiction deprived of territory. Of course, within autonomous regions there are bound to remain minorities, but what they want is not to be attached artificially to similar minorities elsewhere, but real rights in the localities they inhabit. 

Stalin went on to declare that The Party demands wide regional autonomy, abolition of tutelage from above, the abolition of a  compulsory state language and the determination of the boundaries of self-governing  and autonomous  regions by the local population itself, based on economic  and social conditions, the natural composition of the population and so forth (Mani Velupillai, The Island, Colombo, 1984/08/24).

Editor, Pathivukal, I monitored almost all the Tamil media for an equivalent of TSUNAMI which seems to be bandied about by newsmen.  I listened to Dr.Venkat Ramanan & Wijey Kulathungam (both stayed & worked in Japan) discussing TSUNAMI over the radio this morning. Wijey raised the same question (as I raised to him in an e-mail message previously). Dr.V.R. identified è to be an equivalent of  TSUNAMI. Accordingly one may refer to Ƣè or è in this context. Id, however, prefer Ƣè because Ƣ implies both ocean and depth.  Thats why I described it as a massive tidal wave in my previous message to Pathivukal. A few Tamil media are already using Ƣè. [Ƣè ž ɧ.

I am not interested in the origin of TSUNAMI in this message, nor was I in my previous message. I do agree, however, that TSUNAMI which hit South East Asia  last week was seismic in origin.

Suffering of Children in Sri Lanka

Kids Suffering..Shocking truth you won't find in human rights reports. 
75 000 under age labour in Sri lankan capital, 15 000 
thousand children are sexually abused every year. Hundreds of 
children are killed by the state armed forces. 350 Tamil 
schools closed by Sri Lankan military attacks!
"The security forces are campaigning in schools, to encourage 
15 year old school children to join the army. When I comment

Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar also a traitor, who is 
campaigning in foreign countries saying that LTTE is 
recruiting children to their forces?" asked Opposition Leader
Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe in the parliament. He pointed out 
that the Army has launched a campaign in schools to recruit 
school children into the army while Mr. Olara Otunnu, UN

Subject: Questions of Deepawali By Tharanian, London

Derar sir or Madam: I have had confusion of Deepawali. So prepared to send the questions web of Pathivukal so people could answer my questions. Please publish this on Pathivukal!

Thank you
From R.Tharanian

A Question to People!

What is Deepawali?
Our Srilankan people say that more than 1000 years ago, a monster called Narahasuren who lived in India. He was torturing people by killing and many more. At that situation people in India were praying to God Krishna to destroy or kill this Narahasuren. As this happened Krishna killed Narahasuren with help of Mother of World. So that day was the day that Srilankan people celebrate as Deepawali. Deepam means the light of the lamp. So people light up the Deepam to thank God for the help to kill Narahasuren after the terrible torture. This is called Deepawali by the Srilankan Tamils. 

But Indian people say that Srilankan King called Raavanan ,who killed by the King of India called Ramar, on that day Indian people celebrate as Diwali. 

I am going to ask few questions.

1.Why are there two different reasons for Deepawali?

2.Raavanan was a king of Srilanka. He had spirit from God Siva and he is excellent sweet musician of Veena. He has got brilliant power, he was good hearted man. Why do Indian people call Raavanan a monster who has ten heads? 

3.Raavanan was imagined as ten heads because he had a brilliant knowledge, as the people draw  Raavanan as a ten headed person. Is it True or  False?  Please research and answer the questions for me.

Thank You,
