In this article, I can see the disastrous outcomes of not being a multi racial country like singapore. If the sri lankan government had not favoured one race over anothe, none of this would have happened. Young teenager would not have to join dangerous groups to fight for their freedom and everything would have been fine. This article has taught me the importance of being a fair and just country where everyone is given an equal opportunities, this article has also taught me the importance of peace and harmony as an internal conflict can cause the whole nation to be affected in a negative way.

This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. From this article, I can see that the conflict between the Sinhalese and the Tamils in Sri Lanka has not been resolved even after 100 years which is suprising. Over this long period, many innocent lives have been lost, which is heartbreaking. I think that this conflict between the two races can be resolved as long as they are willing to understand each other more and accept one another. I wonder what was the start of all these arguements and why it cannot be solved even after so many years, and how serious is the problem that is worth the sacrifice of so many innocent people.

Darren Cheng's curator insight, July 10, 10:28 AM

After reading this article, I had learnt that the ethnic conflict between the Tamils and Sinhalese in Sri Lanka dates back to over 100 years ago. Because of this rivalry, many innocent lives were killed. It all started of because of unfair treatment to the Tamils. This conflict had caused the economy in Sri Lanka to slow down and affect the lives of the people, hence they have to go through all those difficult situations. I strongly believe that people should have the mindset of equality and fairness. There should be no discrimination or prejudice to towards one another. This to ensure the sustainability of peace and harmony and people will learn to accept one another differences and learn from them. This could also help by understanding and accepting more rather than hating as life is too short to hate. At times, i wonder who started all these hating, discrimination and prejudice.

From this article I can see that no matter how we big or small we are; or what colour we are, we all humans. Why do people still want to differentiate themselves by our colour or by other means? I think people should respect others for who they are. People should not be discriminated in such manner. Who cares what if we are fat or skinnyor anything else? Who are they to judge us? I wonder why are there still these types of prejudice in the world today?

Charmaine Lau Li Fen's curator insight, July 13, 2014 9:09 AM

From this article, I learnt that everyone is that same. Evenif we are white, black gay, fat, emo, athiest. We are all human, therefore we shouldnt have prejudice against anyone.

Prejudice is a preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience. Therefore it is nowhere near factual. We should never ever judge a person without knowing the real truth. Negative Prejudice leads to conflict. Therefore we should stop Negative Prejudice as we are all human and equal.
