The Lichchavi dynasty in ancient India is thought to have ruled the region that is present-day Bihar from its capital Vaishali circa 6 BC.What is most written about the Lichchavis is that their rule was akin to a republic Though the king was the ruler in effect he ruled in consultation with various tiers of local government Even the Buddha was impressed with it and in one story he extolls the virtues of the Lichchavi system saying that no harm would come to a realm where decisions were unanimous consultation was the order of the day and women were honoured By all accounts the ancient Indian kingdom that inspires Wickremesinghe did not have to deal with a 30-year war that ended violently without bringing a reconciliation between the majority Sinhalese-Buddhist and the minority Tamils Share This Article Related Article Only six years ago after the brutal end to the war with the LTTE then Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa had promised to respect all ethnicities but in the same breath declared: “We have removed the word minorities from our vocabulary…No longer are the Tamils Muslims Burghers Malays and any others minorities There are only two peoples in this country One is the people that love this country The other comprises the small groups that have no love for the land of their birth…” As in all South Asian countries identity has determined much in Sri Lanka In her new book Sri Lanka in the Modern Age: A History Nira Wickramasinghe describes how Rajapaksa’s vision of “equal” citizenship sought to create a country based on the foundational myth of the majority Sinhalese “where all other groups — formally known as minorities — are present merely as shadows and not as constitutive elements of a common political culture” Armed with this “new patriotism” as Wickramasinghe describes it to differentiate it from the “constitutional patriotism” that is compatible with universal values and remains above nationalism Rajapaksa’s Sri Lanka delved deep into Sinhala-Buddhist mythology to build an exclusive national imagination that also served to consolidate and justify the rule by one family Wickramasinghe’s book fortunately is not just about Rajapaksa It is a history of Sri Lanka from the perspective of identities in the way that different communities of Sri Lankans defined themselves in relation to the political masters of a given period from the colonial era to the present the bargains they drove and the alliances they made for survival growth and prosperity Kumari Jayawardene’s 2000 classic From Nobodies to Somebodies: The Rise of the Colonial Bourgeoisie in Sri Lanka dealt with how caste groups negotiated power with the Dutch Portuguese and British rulers using it for upward social mobility in the caste hierarchy Wickramsinghe takes that all the way to contemporary times to describe how community identity evolved to identification with territory towards a violent and tragic denouement A professor at Leiden University Netherlands Wickramasinghe says her project was to write a history that was not straitjacketed by a focus on regime and constitutional changes as most histories of her country have been to write a history of peoples and communities “as opposed to a history of the process of state-building” The book moves quickly over events in the colonial and post-colonial times covering themes as varied as furniture and clothing as a marker of identity to the problematic citizenship laws of 1948 that left out the entire population of “Indian Tamils” who were brought to Ceylon by the British to work on first coffee and later tea plantations to the decline of the Left how Tamils began conflating Tamilness with the LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran to the war and the building of the post-conflict state Updated up to last year if there’s a fault with Sri Lanka in the Modern Age it is that it touches ever so lightly on every subject before moving on to another such that there is no stand-out character or events no drama or the ups and downs in the narrative which gives the book a flat feel The real surprise though is that in a project that aims to be a history of peoples there is surprisingly little about the role of women in the economy of southern Sri Lanka — from working in the garment factories to going abroad to work as domestic help and sending back valuable remittances to working as the pluckers in tea gardens Disappointingly the women of the north too get barely a mention despite their role as the “birds of freedom” as the LTTE women’s wing was called But then
