Articles Mahinda Rajapakshe and Terror Free Sri Lanka

Mahinda Rajapakse will be known in history as a president who brought an end to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and its chief Velupillai Prabhakaran.

Soon after the reports of Sri Lankan army’s win over LTTE Sri Lanka's president declared his country "liberated from separatist terror" on Tuesday. The state television broadcasted images of the Tamil Tiger rebel leader's body after it was recovered from the battlefield.

But in his victory address to parliament, President Mahinda Rajapakse appeared to reach out to the minority Tamils, for whom the rebels had said they were trying to carve out a homeland. He also seemed to promise a power-sharing agreement with them.

"Our intention was to save the Tamil people from the cruel grip of the (rebels). We all must now live as equals in this free country," he said, briefly speaking in the Tamil language.

Mahinda Rajapakse was born on 18th November 1945 in Weeraketiya. Moon was placed in Aries rashi and birth Nakshatra was Ashvini. Time of birth is not very certain, hence astrological analysis has been done from natal Moon.

Venus is placed in the 7th house in own sign in the horoscope indicating that his wife will be beautiful. Shiranthi Wickremesinghe, his wife was Miss Sri Lanka in 1978 and also represented Sri Lanka at the Miss World Contest. This justifies our analysis from Moon.

The most important combination that draws my attention is placement of Rahu in the 3rd house from Moon. This placement means that the president is courageous and a tough decision maker.

Mars and Saturn combination in the 4th house indicates the strong resolve to fight militancy. However, this conjunction also indicates that there can be safety concerns for him. Mars and Saturn combination in 4th house does give danger from conveyance.

Aries rashi gives him a strong temperament and qualities of commander in chief. He knows that terror can be countered not by talks but by strong military action. As per numerology also the date of birth 1+8 adds up to 9 which represent Mars.

His date of birth add up to 1+8+1+1+1+9+4+5 = 30 which adds up to 3+0= 3 which represents Jupiter; hence in future he will prove to be a sound administrator as well. In all likelihood he would work for the betterment and honor of the Tamilian immigrants in Sri Lanka.

The challenges before Mahinda Rajapakse will be immense in times to come. The entire world will watch out how the president will win the confidence of Tamilians of Sri Lanka. Because, if he fails to do so, there can be birth of yet another rebel in Sri Lanka.

Military action can stop the menace of rebellion only for sometime. However, it is very important for him to address the issues which saw the rise of Velupillai Prabhakaran and Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). The issues are discrimination with Tamils, lack of education and employment for them and their treatment as inferior citizens.

The Government of India is extending financial support for rehabilitation of Tamils in war affected areas. Hope India and Sri Lanka work together for betterment of Tamilians in Sri Lanka. Mahinda Rajapakse became Member of Parliament at the tender age of 24 years and he has enough experience to understand the main issue behind the Tamil problem.
