Sri Lanka- Book on Victor's Peace- Comments

Paper No. 6533              Dated  12-Jan-2020\

By Prof. Charles Sarvan                                            

What follows is not a review of this collection of thirty-two, very perceptive, essays but a sharing of a few thoughts arising from the book, particularly from its title "Victor's Peace"- by Pararajasingham.

Nepal: Madhesi Politics- In a Mess?

Paper No. 6532                    Dated  11-Jan-2020

By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan.

It has been the curse of the Madhesis that there has been no unity among various political groups.  Individual Political leaders have been more after positions and power and have never been sincere in getting some justice to the Madhesis who are in a majority in most of the southern districts of Nepal.  Recent developments have been no exception.

Bhutan: Sun Kosh Hydro-Power Project- Mega Project with Mega Problems;

Paper No. 6529                    Dated 5-Jan- 2020

By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan

There is no doubt that Bhutan is keen to implement the 2560 MWSun Kosh Mega Project as it will be immensely beneficial to Bhutan’s economy.  I had already referred to this project in paper no. 6489 dated 8th September 2019 and the problems involved in the construction of a big storage dam and consequential problems relating to environment, finance et.

Myanmar- Suu Kyi at The Hague:

Paper No. 6522               Dated 12- Dec-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

It turned out that the State Councilor Suu Kyi did not take any Army Representative in her team to the Hague to defend Myanmar’s case in the ICJ despite speculations to the contrary and the Army’s open desire to be included in the team. Perhaps, she wanted to give the impression that she has acted on her own and  not at the insistence of the Army.

Paper No. 6521                   Dated 10-Dec-2019

By Prof.V. Suryanarayan

Myanmar: Suu Kyi leading the delegation to ICJ- Implications

Paper No. 6518                      Dated 30-Nov-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

It all began with Gambia on behalf of the OIC filed a Law suit at the United Nation’s International Court of Justice (ICJ) accusing Myanmar of breaching the 1948 Un Genocide Convention through a military campaign in Rakhine State. The ICJ with great alacrity took up the issue immediately and fixed December 12th for detailed hearing in the case!

Sri Lanka’s India Equation- Rhetoric and Reality.

Paper No. 6517                             Dated  28-Nov-2019

By Prof. V. Suryanarayan

The victory of Gotabaya Rajapaksa in the Presidential election held on November 16, 2019, with a massive mandate, not unexpected by Sri Lanka watchers in India, opens a new chapter in Sri Lanka’s history and also in Sri Lanka-India relations.
