Paye Pari Buddhamama :10

Darao Pathikbar ---  Tipu's Tomb

Darao pathikbar  tistha kshana-kaal.. ....   Oh dear traveller, wait a few moments for me

You burried me   ......  ...... where would you burry my land?.....  (a line of a poem I found in a newspaper)

As I visited the Southern States in the USA long time ago, I got an opportunity to tour their monuments to the Civil Wars. The courtesy extended to the loosers by the winners was impressive. And perhaps in return, even Democrats during their proceedings, cite Illinois as "Land of Lincoln"! I was so moved that I wrote to several of my friends that the Americans respect their deads ( The opposite is "partisan"!).  It so happened that the Civil War came to an end in Srilanka, and I got a glimpse of the mass burrials of the Tamil Tigers. It is also around Mr. Reagon's (USA) death anniversary and the visit by American Secretary of State. 

 I recalled the tension arising out of  Bangladeshis coming to India en masse.  The police used to believe that they would come as refugee and then join either naxals or the CPIM. I have the same identity, as a class, if I were to migrate to the USA with the Mexicans. Tamil refugees in India earlier, and now after the fall of the LTTE, are no exception. And most law enforcement agencies would like to exterminate each and every rats and roaches associated with terrorism. Iguess jews and Irish revolutionaries faced the same fate.That's how it happened with the Naxals in West Bengal and elsewhere, Khalisthanis in Punjab, LTTE's in Srilanka; it would still happen in Kashmir and elsewhere. Fights among Lodha tribes are very painfull and devastating. People say "Fascists" are worse; they can exterminate each and every individual of the opposition, "the unlike". And of course no one bulits a tomb or dig the rows of graves for criminals and terrorists. I had not seen any for naxals in my district in West Bengal.
