The 18th of May 2009 and the battle over meaning
Thrishantha Nanayakkara once said ‘All wars have been fought twice; once in the battlefield and once down the alleys of memory’. This is true. The battle today is about remembrance. It’s not just about commemoration but about meaning. It’s about definitions. It is about post-war language. The National Peace Council (NPC) issued a statement recently with a nice line: ‘No wise country celebrates war victory after a civil war’. Civil war, did they say? Well, Pabalu Wijegoonawardane is not really responding to the NPC but he offers a valid observation:‘ wd’’’ oeka wfma tl isú,A fjda tlla Æ’’’’ Tidud ìka ,d¾vka g .ymq tl ‘fjda Tka fgr¾’ Æ’’’ kvq:a yduqÿrejka f. nvq;a yduqÿrejka f. Æ’’’” (Alright, it seems that ours was a civil war…attacking Osama bin Laden was [part of] ‘the war on terror’… what this means is that things are defined as pleases the definer). Whether the NPC likes it or not, whether the other NPC (Northern Provincial Council) likes it or not, whether those whose outcome preferences did not materialize like it or not, the 18th day of May, 2009 was historical. It was a landmark moment in the history of the country and indeed the history of this century. You can call what preceded a ‘civil war’ and that is up for debate mind you, but it would be hard to deny that what was defeated was terrorism and a terrorist organization.
