Balasingham's new book explores theories in Human Liberation

[TamilNet, Saturday, 22 November 2003, 16:31 GMT]
In a recently released book in Tamil, Viduthalai ("Liberation"), Mr. Anton Balasingham, theoretician for Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), explores in depth, theories from ancient philosophers to seek meanings for Human Life, History and Liberation.

Book by Balasingham
In the Preface, Mr. Balasingham states that the book is a compilation of edited and enhanced version of articles that he published in "Velicham (Light)" publication in Jaffna in the early 1990s. These articles were written on request by Head of the LTTE Literary Wing, Puthuvai Ratnathurai, with the objective of inspiring new and revolutionary thought processes in the minds of NorthEast student population, the author adds.

The first chapter details the contribution of late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Mr.M.G.Ramachandran to the TamilEelam struggle, particularly to LTTE's efforts.

The second chapter documents details of the meeting between late Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and LTTE leader Pirapaharan. The secret accord that was agreed between Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and Pirapaharan on 28 July 1987 was of historical significance to Tamil struggle and hence the details have to be documented, Mr Balasingham says at the beginning of this chapter.

The rest of the book draws on thinking of Freud, Marx, Hegel and several other philosophers to attempt to answer basic and fundamental questions in human existence.

The book was released by Fairmax Publishing Ltd, P.O.Box 2454, Mitcham, Surrey CR4 3LJ, England.
