Pararajasingham (Para)

Dear Friends,

You may have already received the very sad news that our friend and comrade Pararajasingham (Para) has passed away, so suddenly yesterday, 16.12.2007 on his 72 birthday. Our thoughts are with his wife Malika and his children.

For us Para was an extraordinary example and role model of a person who devoted his entire life for the improvement of the lives of those whose have been forced to live under oppression. He devoted his time, knowledge and care for Sri Lankan regardless if they are living in Sri Lanka or abroad, voluntarily or in exile. He never put his personal interest in the centre of his life. A commitment of such kind is very, very rare and we can call ourselves very fortunate, to have been able to learn from him and to work with him.

Para's struggle was directed towards the realization of human and democratic rights for all people in Sri Lanka, regardless of there social class, ethnic or religious background. We mourn the tremendous gap his death will cause in the community of the Sri Lankan Diaspora. We will miss his advise, his humour, his sense for friendship.

His forward looking thinking will guide us in our future work and remembering him will strengthen us in continuing the work for human dignity, self respect and peace.
