Bharathiraja moved by LTTE's 'sacrifices'



Colombo, Dec. 5 (PTI): Tamil Film Director Bharathiraja, has said he was deeply moved by the "sacrifices" made by Tamil Tiger rebels in Sri Lanka.

Bharathiraja attended the Heroes' Day ceremony in Jaffna last month to honour 17,800 men and women the LTTE has lost in fighting so far.

"When I was in Jaffna in its natural surroundings, what I saw and heard there made me feel very homely. I am fascinated by the people of Jaffna," he was quoted as saying by pro-rebel Tamilnet website. "I witnessed the Heroes' Day events which really melted my heart. The lighting of the torch in memory of the Heroes was a magnificent sight," he said.

"However, I was badly shaken by the scars of war I saw. I became heavy hearted by the thought that this much of wound has been inflicted on this soil which thrives with valour, heroism, militancy and martyrdom", he said.

The director also said the people of Tamil Nadu had made "great achievements" but they were "dwarfed" by those of the LTTE.
