TAMIL EELAM : DMK BACK TO RIGHT PATH

Image

Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam founded by Aringnar Anna had always supported the cause of Tamil Eelam, though there may be many slip between the lip and the cup, but such slip never happened when Aringnar Anna was alive. In the editorial of Dravida Naadu weekly on 29th June 1958, Aringnar Anna states that onlookers reported him about “ Tamils being immersed in petrol and burnt in streets of Srilanka while people watched it as if it was fun. In last three weeks in the arson and looting and vandalism at least 800 people were killed in the capital and other Sinhala areas, and 20000 Tamils uprooted from their homes were rushing towards Tamil dominant Northern parts of Srilanka for safety”. After narrating this Anna breaks the suspense. This is not a report from DMK but by Daily Telegraph of London. The reporter who could not file the report from Colombo flew to Chennai to break this news in London. Indian High Commissioner never bothered to visit riot affected areas, neither the Delhi nor its puppets in Chennai expressed concern over massive massacre of Tamils, Anna wrote in 1958. The same response by Union Government towards Tamil massacres continues even today. Anna wrote had such thing happened to Marwari’s or Gujarathis Nehru would have rushed to raise his condemnation. If Nehru, the last democrat in Congress party as Anna used to describe him , had maintained stony silence in 1958 over lively burnt 800 Tamils, it wont surprise historians over the overt and covert support Delhi extends to the Neo-Hitler Rajpakshe the curse on human race who gets warm support of ruling as well as opposition in New Delhi.

I wrote in the official organ of DMK, Namnaadu weekly on 5.2.1978 on Eelam Tamils and Tamil Cowards, which was to pinpoint our Tamils mental paralysis towards atrocities on our kinsmen. The link from our party website given here will record my state of mind in 1978, post emergency India.

On 4 th May 1986, DMK organized the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organization Conference in Madurai. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, N.T.Rama Rao and to our surprise Dr.Subramanian Swamy participated in that conference. Let me quote few lines spoken by Dr.Subramanian Swamy “I would assure our brothers and sisters who are is desperate situation. India always will stand by you. Tamils are not alone or orphans. There are 80 crore Indians behind your back.  Time will come for those who cause grave hardships to Tamil to reap what they sow.”

I must humbly remind Shanmuganathan, the mobile archives of Kalaignar to trace back my letter on SELO formation in Puducherry [Supporters of Eelam Liberation Organization] which I believed triggered the idea of TESO, since it was much before TESO was formed. I don’t expect credit for I am an ordinary DMK sympathizer, who does not deserve credit. Anyhow now when again TESO is revived as per reports in media, it is my duty to place my views on record.

Backing a separate Eelam (homeland) for Sri Lankan Tamils, DMK president M Karunanidhi has reiterated his demand for India’s role in this regard as he sought reviving Tamil Eelam Supporters Organization (TESO).Addressing a public meeting at Kolathur, the constituency of his son and party treasurer MK Stalin last night, he called for a peaceful and democratic struggle to achieve this purpose.

“The Sri Lankan President may reject the idea, but it will be my endeavour,” he said. The DMK patriarch, associated in the 1980s with TESO which went into oblivion later, sought its revival with the help of leaders, including Dravidar Kazhagam president K Veeramani.He reiterated his demand for a referendum for this purpose by the United Nations and India, an issue he has raised repeatedly in the last few days. He had said he was not asking for a military intervention by India like it did in the Iiberation of Bangladesh.”

The tiny splinter of DMK, which is similar to RSS of DMK, our Dravida Peravai mooted the Separate Eelam as inevitable solution in various forums and books which will be available in net proving our consistency towards our support for Tamil Eelam. All my appeals to world leaders to recognize Tamil Eelam Government in Exile, chosen by democratic means, is in books I had donated to Perasiriyar Library and Research Center within the Anna Arivalayam campus, and in Periyar Tidal Archives.

 Indo Eelam Friendship Forum, a net based group exists all these years to say we are consistent in our goal, achievement of Tamil Eelam. I am happy that DMK is back to Anna’s days and Kalaignar regaining his youthful ideological commitment to support Tamil Eelam.

Dr.KANGUEANE of BIO_INFORMATICS GETS AWARD

Dravida Peravai sets new trend

Symposium on Human Genome Project

To hold a symposium on Human Genome project is not in the agendas of action pursued by political parties. On 15.12.2000 in its party auditorium Dravida Peravai invited Dr.Pandjassarame Kangueane of the National University of Singapore to deliver a lecture on this subject.

After 12 years on 8 th April 2012, Global Organization of People of Indian Origin conferred on him Bharath Jyothi awards, and you can see Dr.Kangueane second from left in photograph. Close on the heels of this award, he won Father title from his new born baby, the birth became cause of celebrations in Irulansanthai village near Pondicherry. Dravida Peravai wishes the just born Bio-Informatics scientist to scale greater heights as he grows from childhood to boyhood and then to scholar-hood.

To know about the scientific achievement we are reproducing from THE TIMES OF INDIA report:

Human Genome mapping Complete: Experts

Bethesda( Maryland): The human genome is complete and the human genome project is over, leaders of public consortium of academic centers said on Monday. “We have before us the instruction set that carries each of us from one cell egg through adulthood to grave” Dr.Robert Waterson, a leading genome sequencer said at a news conference here at the National Institute of Health. Their announcement marked the end of a scientific venture that began in October 1990 and was expected to take 15 years. Monday’s finishing date two years ahead of schedule, was timed to coincide with the 50 th anniversary of the discovery of the structure of DNA by Dr.James D.Watson and Dr.Francis Crick. Their article appeared in the April 25, 1953 issue of “Nature”.

Dr.Watson who became the first Director of the Human Genome project at the institute was at a conference here on Monday to celebrate the genome’s completion. He had sought that goal, he said realizing that a family members illness would never be treatable “until we understand the human programme for health and disease. A working draft of the human genome sequence was announced with much fanfare 3 years ago in a White House ceremony. But at that stage the human genome project had completed only 85 percent of the genome and its commercial rival the Celera Corporation using the projects data as well as its own, had attained somewhat more. The project’s draft was not a thing of beauty. It consisted thousands of short segments of DNA, whose order and orientation in the full genome was largely unknown. Three years later, the international consortium of genome sequencing centers has now put all the fragments in order and closed most of the gaps, producing an extensive and highly accurate sequence of the 3.1 billion u units of DNA of the human genome. The data perceived as the foundation of a new era of medicine, will be posted for free on genetic data banks. Celera whose data was available by subscription never intended to carry its draft genome to completion.

The working draft of three years ago contained most human genes and was useful for researchers seeking a specific gene. But up to a year ago biologists said they often had to do considerable extra sequencing work on the DNA regions they were interested in. The completed genome announced on Monday is far more accurate. It can be used out of the box, so to speak, without extra re-sequencing. The genes and other important elements of the genome are now almost in their correct position, a vital requirement for researchers seeking to locate a gene that contributes to disease. Scientists praised the  human genome project for its further 3 years of hard work and for producing a resource of enormous value to research. But several qualified their administration by noting that even if the project is complete, the human genome is not. The parts of the genome still missing are of minor importance, but many biologists would like to see them sequenced before declaring the genome finished. The human genome is packed in 23 pairs of chromosomes, each a giant molecule of DNA. Though DNA’s best known role is to encode the information needed to build specific proteins, the working parts of the living cell, some of the DNA performs structured roles. This included the DNA at the tips of each chromosome/0 and at the center. The tip and center DNA consists of monotonously repeated sequences whose extract order of units is so hard to determine that the consortium’s leaders said from the outset they would not try to do so. ….

On this issue even in 2000 itself Dravida Peravai, the only political party in India which showed interest in developing scientific temper, organized a symposium. The invitation of the symposium is as follows:

FUTURE MEDICINE INFLUENCED BY HUMAN GENOME PROJECT AND COMPUTATIONAL DEVELOPMENTS: SYMPOSIUM

Venue: Anna Arangam- Date:15.12.2000–Welcome Address: Ms.Hemavathy [Vice president Science Forum ] President: N.Nandhivarman [ General Secretary Dravida Peravai ] in the august presence of Dr.S.V.Narayanan  Dean of School of Management, Pondicherry University 

Keynote Address in Tamil

by young scientist of Singapore and son of Pondicherry’s soil

Dr.Pandjassarame Kangueane B.Tech. Ph.D

” The future is full of promise as it is fraught with uncertainty. The industrial society is giving way to one based on knowledge and those without it. We must learn and be part of the knowledge based world. Knowledge is fundamental in Biology, a discipline of extreme complexity. The Human Genome Project and computational developments will change the practice of medicine in future. in his key note address, the young scientist of our soil will outline how HLA (gene) INFORMATICS can be utilized in vaccine design, diagnosis and treatment” All from all walks of life are cordially invited, said the invitation. Dr.Arima Magizhgo delivered the vote of thanks.

Update on 27.12.2012 : Our friendship which lasted 12 years, resulted in me becoming one of the Associate Editors of Govern Good, a net magazine getting Rs 5000 per month for past 6 months for cofee expenses as Dr.Kangeaune would prefer to call. Dr.Kangeaune donated a chair for our party office when symposium was held. I had borrowed Rs 10,000 from him by cheque repayable before I breath my last. My life is open book and since my days are numbered I record everthing that happened in my life..
