Film on Buddha By Vumukthi to be shot in Kolkata

Film on Buddha to be shot in Kolkata - The Times of India: In 1993, Bernardo Bertolucci did it with 'Little Buddha' starring Keanu Reeves and Bridget Fonda. Martin Scorsese touched upon the subject when he made 'Kundun' in 1997. Earlier, of course, there was Conrad Rooks' 1972-film 'Siddhartha' with Shashi Kapoor and Simi Garewal in the lead. Now comes the news that critically acclaimed Sri Lankan director Vimukthi Jayasundara is making an international film on the Buddha. Parts of the film will be shot in Kolkata.

Vimukthi, whose debut feature film 'The Forsaken Land' had won the Camera d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, was in Kolkata recently for the research of his film. Talking to TOI now from Sri Lanka, Vimukthi says, "I was recently in Kolkata and Bodhgaya for the research of my movie. Shooting should begin by the end of this year."

Elusive new bird discovered in China | Business Standard News

Elusive new bird discovered in China | Business Standard News: An international team of researchers has discovered an elusive new bird with a distinctive song in China.

The new bird, the Sichuan bush warbler, shunned the limelight so far by hiding in grassy, scrubby vegetation over the years.

However, its distinctive song eventually gave it away, said one of the researchers Pamela Rasmussen, professor at the Michigan State University.

"The Sichuan bush warbler is exceedingly secretive and difficult to spot as its preferred habitat is dense brush and tea plantations," Rasmussen noted.

Ceylon Today | Armed struggle destroyed TAMILS

Ceylon Today | Armed struggle destroyed TAMILS: After the Indo-Lanka Accord, there was a serious problem that we believed; continuing an armed struggle for a separate State would further destroy our community. It will be instrumental in a greater loss to the Tamil community. Therefore, we decided to stop the armed struggle where as the LTTE continued it. They thought anybody who is not in line with them is their enemy. They tried to hunt us down and we had to operate in the Army controlled area. We were told that protection to everyone of our cadres could not be given. Therefore, we had to carry weapons as an aid for protection. We were in situation to have an understanding with the armed forces. Therefore this does not mean we support every political action taken by the Sri Lankan Government. When we were in Parliament we voted against the emergency. We might have had good rapport with the government but that does not mean we accepted everything they did especially on the Tamil issue.

City Coroner, Who has seen Thousands of Motor Cycle Deaths in Courts against Full Face Helmet Ban

The Island: The retired City Coroner of Colombo, Attorney-at-Law, Edward Ahangama has complained to the Court of Appeal that the IGP and connected respondents, had prohibited the use of full-face helmets for motorcyclists, without considering the recognised international standards recently prescribed for the safety of riders.

Petitioner Ahangama has explained in his petition, that during his tenure of office as the City Coroner, he had conducted about 80,000 inquests into sudden deaths. Among those were a large number of fatal motorcycle accidents. Hence he felt that Sri Lanka should encourage the use of full-face helmets which are internationally recognised as a safety measure to avoid fatal head injuries in motorcycle accidents.

Ceylon Today | Was Thileepan killed to make him a martyr?

Ceylon Today | Was Thileepan killed to make him a martyr?: hileepan was a leading figure of the LTTE in Jaffna.
During the ceasefire, after the Indo – Lanka Peace Accord was signed, he fasted unto death against the Indian Peace Keeping Force's presence in Sri Lanka.

Before he began his fast unto death, Thileepan made this plea:
"I may ask for water during my fast. I may say I will give up the fast. But don't give me water. I begin this fast to protest against the presence of the Indian Army. I will not stop it until the Indian Army quits, or I will die in my effort. Don't allow anyone to prevent me going through with this.".

Indian Coast Guard admits to Poaching by Tamil Nadu Fishermen, Records 36865 such instances

Indians accused by India on Lanka � Colombo Gazette: Quoting statistics, the Coast Guard said during 2014 and up to March 2015, the Sri Lanka Navy had impounded 185 boats and initiated action against 937 crew.

Likewise, it cited 36,865 instances of Indian fishermen poaching in the island nation’s waters, which the Sri Lankan Navy had then reported to the Indian High Commission.

The Indian Coast Guard provided 280 distress alert transmitters, besides giving emergency numbers to the fishermen but received no messages, the reply stated.

The court was hearing a contempt petition filed against the Union Cabinet Secretary and others for not complying with a previous court order in providing security for the fishermen.

Sri Lanka rediscovers itself, Taxis stop Specially When Women Cross Roads !!

Sri Lanka rediscovers itself | Business Line: Ravaged by long years of an ethnic conflict that proved to be among the bloodiest in the world, the nation and its people held on grimly, patiently and often helplessly, living their lives amidst uncertainly, excesses of security and violence.

In Tamil Nadu, of course, emotions run high, often, though not always, rightly so when it comes to the dogged and determined manner in which the Mahinda Rajapaksa government got rid of the LTTE. For there was gross violation of human rights — show me one conflict zone where there isn’t — but then the tiny country bore the brunt of the LTTE’s violent onslaught for far too long.

Too many lives were lost, too many suicide bombings carried out and innumerable peace negotiations failed to leave the Sri Lankan government any option. Remember that daring attack on the Bandarnaike International airport in Colombo in 2001 that destroyed many commercial and military aircraft?
