CHENNAI: Ten years after the civil war in Sri Lanka ended, books on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and its slain chief Velupillai Prabhakaran continue to sell at the Chennai Book Fair.

Many also support Tamil Eelam, a proposed independent state that Tamils in Sri Lanka and the Sri Lankan We Tamils diaspora aspire to create in the north and east of Sri Lanka.

[] [] [] Inspired by the Tamil Eelam flag, the tiger has become a symbol of Tamil nationalism for Tamils in Sri Lanka and the Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora.

India should ensure that the new government in Sri Lanka does not take away the rights of Tamils, which came through the 13th amendment, introduced based on the Indo –Sri Lanka accord in.

He says, "We must admit that the political space for Lankan Tamils issue is diminishing every day. Between anda large population of the State had a huge sympathy for Lankan Tamils.

The 13th Amendment, part of the Indo-Sri Lanka Peace Accord of that promised greater powers to the provinces, was repeatedly raised by Delhi with one eye on the domestic Tamil vote.

After winning plus seats in the Lok Sabha last year, Modi has brought in the Citizenship. After many Sri Lankan Tamils fled to India during the 26 years of civil war between their army and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, the government had taken over their lands and given it.

There was never an armed secessionist movement in the Tamil regions of India, whereas in Sri Lanka the discriminatory regimes and failed political struggles of Tamils led to an armed uprising The Indian administration was incorrectly led to believe that the rise of armed movements in Sri Lanka would lead to rise of secessionist movement in Reviews: 2.

In the s, growing tensions between the Ceylon Tamil and the Sinhalese Buddhist majority in Sri Lanka prompted Tamil militants to undertake a guerrilla war against the central government in hopes of creating a separate Tamil state for themselves in the north and northeast.

The Tamil rebels’ organization, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, continued their insurgency into the 21st century. The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) met with the Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, in Colombo to discuss the concerns of the Tamil people following the recent parliamentary election.

The High Commissioner, Gopal Baglay, congratulated the TNA for securing its place in the parliament again and assured that India is committed to finding a political solution to the Tamil.

The southern belt of India is sentimentally attached to Sri Lankan Tamils. There are more than 22 lakh people in Sri Lanka who speak Tamil. The north and eastern belt of the country closely relate to India.

They seem to miss the semantics of the Sinhala majority who call it the minority ethnic question. Tamils in Sri Lanka have hardly been a uniform or united group in spite of the shared language. ‘Indian Tamils’ living in central and southern Sri Lanka, often inhabited, surrounded and dominated by Sinhala majority areas, were at a geographical distance and separate in origin from the Eelam Tamils of northern and eastern Sri Lanka.

This is a list of Tamils of Sri Lanka by their country of domicile or origin. All communities that speak (or spoke) Tamil and originally came from Sri Lanka are included. Tamils of Sri Lanka today are a trans-national minority and are found across the globe.

"Tamil ethnic identity in Sri Lanka and South India have evolved in dramatically different ways over the decades. This is the first book to fully examine the divergent histories, cultures, and conflicts that have affected the development of Tamil national identity in India and Sri Lanka.
