மிக விரைவில் சித்தன் கொட்டில் புதிய வடிவில்!!

Thursday, December 20, 2007

Ich bin zurzeit in Sri Lanka und bin sehr traurig wegen unseren Paras Tod. Bitte sage Mallika, Uma und Santhush meinem herzlichen Beileid. Er ist einen großen Verlust für uns und auch für unseres Land. Ich bin sehr traurig, dass ich nicht bei Paras Kremation dabei sein kann. Sri Lanka ist nicht zu retten. Wie die Leute hier denken, ist es unglaublich. Ich komme am 12. Januar in die Schweiz zurück. Liebe Grüsse an alle und werde ich am 27 ten an Para denken.

A tribute to Prarajasingam

Dear Friends,
It was one of Sri Lankas saddest days. Comrade Pararajasingam died on the 16th of December 2007 - his Birthday.

He leaves behind his wife, his daughter Uma and his Son Shanthush and grandchildren.

He was born on 16th of December 1935 in Nallur Sri Lanka. He was a Student in Jaffna Hindu College. After he completed his A Levels, he studied first Mathematics and later Economic Science at the University of Colombo. In the 60´s he worked in the Fishery Cooperation as chief accountant. At this time he became a trade union activist. He was a leading activist in the CMU (Ceylon Mercantile Union).

He married Malika, a Sighala human rights activist from Colombo in1966 against the protest of many relatives and from 1966 to till his death they were a happy couple, spending their days together.

In the 70´s he was very active in the Human Rights activities and he continued Political Liberation struggle together with Balathambu. He was engaged in the release of JVP members, who were imprisoned after 1971 insurgency.

After the July 1983 violence, he had to leave Sri Lanka. From then on he lived in Stuttgart Germany, but never gave up his political work. He founded first the Tamil Rights Committee and in 1985 started a Tamil Magazine Called “Sinthanai” together with many other democratic Tamils. He was also a founder Member of “Ilakiychanthipu” (Tamil Literary organisation), which was founded in 1988 and he was an activist and founding supporter of the German Tamil Womens Rights Association. He was also a good photographer and his contribution to the 3rd world groups in the late 80´s in Germany was important.

At the beginning of the new Millennium he moved to Berlin. He continued his activities from there, becoming an active member of the International Network of Sri Lankan Diaspora, and this year in April he represented together with other NGO´s the INSD in discussion with German Bundestag (Parlament) Members in Berlin.

I cannot describe the agony. He leaves a great irreplaceable gap in Sri Lankan Human Rights and Political activity arround Tamil and English literature.

He all ways live among us.

We all share the agony with Malika, Uma, Santhush and the rest of the family.
