But i find your views wrong. India US EU desisted from selling arms to Sri Lanka. Pakistan and China immediately supplied arms. Looking at the press reports, India/US/EU always pressed Sri Lankan Govt for a negotiated settlement, but Sri Lankan Govt, over stocked with Chinese arms, ignored all requests and values.After the end of the war, India is various kinds of free aid and material specifically for the Tamil areas so that the displaced people can be rehabilitated quickly. Not talking or engaging Sri Lanka will only worsen the suffering of Tamils more. In fact talks are focussed on rehabilitation of Tamils.I have two question for you. Why are you totally ignoring the roles of Chinese and Pakistanis in the war who instigated and supported it? Why are you complaining about India, who denounced the war and totally stayed away from it?

I wondered why innocent people died when they had done nothing wrong. Then I realised that India helped Sri Lanka kill so many innocent people. Even now, India supports Sri Lanka in the international arena so that Sri Lanka can keep Tamils in concentration camps. We, Jaffna Tamils, always so India as a motherland. We fought against Rajiv Gandhi only because he started the fight first. But instead of killing only the main LTTE, India helped Sri Lanka kill 20000 innocent lives, about 2000 times more than the numbers killed in Mumbai. Then India helped Sri Lanka put all the rest into concentration camps. India then supports Sri Lanka to get IMF loan so they can settle Sinhalease in the north so the population demographics can change. Can you imagine if everyone from UP was settled in your state on purpose to make you a minority in your own state. This is the curse of being Jaffna Tamil. Next time, there is an attack on India, I will not feel sad. Perhaps I won’t be happy to see innocent people die because I have ethos unlike Indians who rejoiced in the internet forums as innocent Tamils died. However, I shall never be sad to see India being attacked by China. India has indeed brought me closer to the Sinhalease. Because unlike Tamils, Sinhalease have always hated and been suspicious of India.

When the nations of SE Asia let go of the past, the past will release them as well”Thanks for your comments. You may be right. But if you look at the bigger picture, it is a cold war between China and India. China wants to slow down the development of SE Asia and India is trying to develop SE Asia faster. It is a cold war between China and India. Peace will return to SE Asia when China stops meddling or when SE Asian countries get wiser. Problem is India is not playing nasty is Chinese are doing.China’s foundations and values are weak and might collapse in next 10 – 30 years. So may be peace will return to SE Asia soon.

X years of inertia just means that one constantly drags one’s feet while trying to fly. This mindset is exemplified by how the gov’ts treat the people. They don’t think they can handle honesty. When the nations of SE Asia let go of the past, the past will release them as well.
