Polls or back to war is the million-dollar question
My Dear Velu,
I thought I must write because
I know you must be sulking in your bunker these days because you
couldn't make it to Paris. Of course Velu, we are now quite used
to the greens jumping up in joy because the peace talks are now
almost certain to begin while at the same time, Satellite is shouting
from the rooftops saying that you chaps were planning something
sinister from the Hilton rooftop.
But of course
what really puzzles me is why you chaps took the trouble to go to
Paris at all. Here you are, happily killing off your political opponents
one by one, setting up new camps despite even the Norwegians crying
foul and ignoring every law in the book in what you call 'your'
areas. And, in the same breath you also talk about your rights and
grievances and demand the impossible to which the Greens squirm
Now, Velu, as it is now, no matter what we agree to it would appear
that you would be getting less than what you already have-which
is why I do not understand why you wish to go through with this
As you know,
Velu, that man Rauff and his brethren in the East are demanding
a small slice of the cake for themselves and judging by what happened
this week, imposing a "solution" wouldn't be an easy task
Then of course,
what everyone forgets when talking about political solutions is
that whatever agreement is reached you would have to go to the polls
and get democratically elected and I'm not sure you are quite capable
of that unless of course you use the tried and tested 'Wayamba'
So, my question
to you is why would you abdicate all the absolute power that you
now enjoy in return for some meaningless political office where
you would require the consent of the people for everything that
you do-at least theoretically though it doesn't always work that
way as we know from our experience in the South?
I do understand
that Uncle Sam and the chaps in Toronto, Paris and London are cracking
the whip but then you were never one to be belittled by these foreigners
messing in your affairs-as no doubt the Indians and the Norwegians
will tell us.
And, now you
have even got rid of Bala who made a fine art of concealing terrorism
in impressive political jargon. Of course, if he is ever in need
of a job I am sure he can get one from Uncle Sam, re-writing what
Bush is doing in Iraq and calling it 'liberation'.
So, Velu, when are you planning to call it a day and resume the
big war? Surely, you are not gullible enough to make the mistake
of agreeing to enter political system again and suffer? Just look
at what happened to Tilvin, Wimal and the sahodarayas-they have
given up the revolution and are still trying to latch on to Satellite's
saree pota but they can't even manage that?
PS-And I know that sometime ago, you were quite keen on a federal
system of government. But now you can't agree to that either, can
you, because someone has promised to send a rather special parcel
to you if you do?
