  Resolved Question: If the famous Ranganatha
http://www.sify.com/news/the-god-that-lanka-forgot-imagegallery-features-kehmH6ccacf.html The epics say Lord Ram gifted an idol of Lord Ranganatha to Ravana's brother, Vibhishana, to express his gratitude for helping him win the Lanka war. After the coronation of Ram in Ayodhya, Vibhishana was returning to Sri Lanka and he placed the idol near Trichy. Later, he found he could not move the idol from the spot. Devotees believe that Lord Ranganatha refused to leave the spot, where the famous Lord Ranganathaswamy temple in Srirangam now stands. What if Vibhishana had taken the Ranganatha idol to Sri Lanka and built a temple there? Would it have changed Sri Lanka's history? Would it have prevented the Tamil unrest that the world witnessed centuries later? Chandrika Kumaratunga, former president of the island nation, believed Lord Ranganatha could create peace in Sri Lanka. She wanted to build a Ranganatha temple in Colombo, because, she believed, a Hindu temple would pacify the warring Tamils. She entrusted the work to famous sculptor V Ganapati Sthapati.

  Resolved Question: How is this Ex.President
"Consistent rejection by State the demands of Tamils, led the war for a separate State" http://www.asiantribune.com/news/2011/07/24/consistent-rejection-state-demands-tamils-led-war-separate-state The last two paragraphs are given below. "I shall remember till the end of my days the morning when my 28 year-old son called me, sobbing on the phone to say how ashamed he was to call himself as Sinhalese and a Lankan, after he saw on the UK television a 50 minute documentary called “Killing Fields of Sri Lanka”. My daughter followed suit, saying similar things and expressing shock and horror that our countrymen could indulge in such horrific acts. I was proud of my son and daughter, proud that they cared for the others, proud that they have grown up to be the man and woman their father and mother wanted them to be" Our little nation can boast of a great and noble civilization, a people with rich and diverse skills and excellence in numerous fields. We have not had the good luck of being led by great leaders long enough to lead the way to that greatness we deserve. Could we not strive to leave the past behind, look to the future and to march towards the Stars? "Chandrika Kumaratunga berates Sri Lankan government" http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-14274988 And she strongly criticised an act introduced by her own father as prime minister, which elevated the Sinhala language above others: she said it caused ethnic riots and contributed to the war by excluding minorities. The former president's remarks came as local elections appeared to confirm the country's ethnic divisions, with a Tamil party victorious in the north and the president's party sweeping the board elsewhere.
