A: So, what is the report about?
B: It’s about fighting and killing in Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan army attacked a rebel-controlled area in the northern part of the country and killed a lot of civilians over the weekend. Other countries are trying to stop the Sri Lankan government form killing civilians, but they are determined to defeat the rebels.
A: What do you think?
B: I’m sympathetic to the Tamil Tigers. Every time read news about them, I remember my old co-workers in London. When I was working in a Japanese restaurant called Sakura near Oxford Circus, three of my co-workers were Tamils from Sri Lanka. They taught me have to cook Japanese food. They were tough both mentally and physically, and good natured. One of them, called Naba-san, spoke Japanese very fluently. He had never gone to a language school or studied from a book. He had just picked up phrases and sentences here and there while working in Japanese restaurants. He was amazing and a good chef too.
I don’t keep in touch with them, but I’m sure they’re still in London. So they are safe. Even so, I’m a kind of sad to hear that their people are being killed. It seems that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam is fighting a losing battle.
