Tamils in Independent Ceylon

Release of Second Edition

by S. Makenthiran, B.A., FCCA

Tamils in Independent Ceylon cover This book traces the struggle of the Tamils from the time Ceylon became independent to the present time. It starts with the non-violent satyagraha led by the Upcountry Tamil leader Thondaman and then by the Northeast Tamil leader Chelvanayagam. After thirty years of futile non-violent agitation, it culminates in the armed resistance by Tamil militants, and the establishment of a Tamil administration by the LTTE  in liberated areas.
