 Palmyra Fallen: Rajani to War’s End

 

by Rajan Hoole

 

25th Anniversary of the Assassination of Dr. Rajani Thiranagama

 

Let this life of struggle take from us what it will; Would it but rupture the springs, whence flow the lifeblood of human ties, of what avail is the crown of victory?”

 

  from Puthiyathor Ulakam (A Strange New World), p.107, whose principal author, Soosaipillai Nobert disappeared in an LTTE concentration camp circa 1992

 

Come, thine eyes beaming brightness of Truth

heart steeled in firm endeavour…

Fondly revere as scripture

all writings fostering Truth

Fear thou to utter a Lie

 

Oli padaittha kanninai, Subramanya Bharathi’s vision for Free India
