Life in the no firing zone
(By: Gomin Dayasri)
The look on the faces of those coming from the No Fire Zone (NFZ) tells the story. It is a story of children. Aged and haggard, looking well beyond their age it is their stoic nature and the desire to live for the sake of their remaining children that kept them alive.
As they alight from the packed buses to seek lodgings in the camps for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP's) [Click to magnify/shrink] there are no young men among them. Where have all the young men gone? Yes, gone, gone or rather taken to LTTE camps. Now they are coming for the girls. It is for them the parents grieve and show no leniency to the LTTE. They know their children are destined to die; with 3 days basic training they are dispatched to the front to face the war machine of the Sri Lankan Forces. Worse, they are positioned in the first line of defense.
They talk of nothing else but of their lost children. Life is not worth living without the children lost; life must continue for the younger children still with them. They live in that dilemma. More than food and drink they need psychological care having gone through agony and trauma in the NFZ under LTTE rule.
NFZ is the final happy hunting ground for the LTTE in prey of children. In a confined space of 21 square kilometers any child above 12 years is vulnerable and easy picking for the terrorist running desperately short of man power. It's a child ranch with easy access for the bandits. Few girls have been untouched the rest have been hunted and hounded. Usually exempted children of the Mahavira (dead soldiers) and Porali (present soldiers) have been conscripted. They were the firm bedrock of LTTE; the last support column but that too is gone with their children kidnapped. The final bastion of goodwill is lost. There is mayhem in the midst of desperation.
A 77 years old lecturer in English among the IDPs, spoke fondly of LTTE achievements with his eyes glowing with pride He crossed because life was becoming uncomfortable but awaits the return of the LTTE. He is married but childless.
Howling children are carted away from the NFZ like dogs taken to the dog pound. The parents intervening are mercilessly beaten and few have been shot at by impatient cadres. Some artful kids have escaped from the clutches of the LTTE but they have not returned to their parents. Parents know of their fate with LTTE ground area shrinking rapidly there are no sanctuaries for escaped kids to hide. In retaliation angry cadres return to take an elder from the family as a substitute.
They moved from their earlier NFZ as they heard on radio and from leaflets dropped from low flying planes of the newly designated zone. They covered 12 km to reach the new secure area from the old. LTTE did not hamper the movement but watched from a distance.
They live as families in tents purchased at Rs 2500 out of material supplied free previously by the UNICEF and has found its way to the traders. Prices are exorbitant, food sparse and scare. Two panadols cost Rs 250.The desire to eat is absent amidst the turmoil. Being close to the sea it is not necessary to dig deep to strike water; salty and unhealthy but no option. The ladies toilets come to existence with saris wrapped between four poles to provide privacy. Commode was a barrel dug into the soil covered with earth with squatting space useable for two weeks.
They live every second cursing the LTTE but at their mercy seeking space to cross the invisible border not too far to reach. From the desperation on the faces of the cadres they gauge the distance is becoming closer. There is hope within despair.
Each family dug a trench for they knew within the NFZ the LTTE guns are booming. Retaliatory fire was anticipated but has not arrived so far. They had pleaded with the LTTE to take away the artillery pieces from the NFZ but it is of no avail.
Did they tell their tale of woe previously before reaching the NFZ? Yes, to the Tamil boys and girls who came with the NGOs when they operated from Killinochchi. But it made no impact or improvement. Hindsight, they surmise those NGO representatives were LTTE sympathizers. Otherwise they may not have been permitted to enter LTTE territory.
Most are adamant, LTTE will get no vote at a free and fair election from the residents in the NFZ. The TNA are discounted as the running dogs of the LTTE. Sambandan is the hate figure as the outsider from Trincomalee who sold them to the LTTE. They yearn for a new leadership. Ananda Sagaree has support from
