Mullivaikkal: 'Here all things scream silently'

"And I my self / am one massive, soundless scream / above the thousand thousand buried here / I am each old man here shot dead / I am every child here shot dead"

- Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko's 'Babi Yar'

Lakshman Warnakulasooriya brings out the collective grief overflowed on the beaches of Mullivaikkal where hundreds and thousands of Tamils were massacred in the final conflagration of Sri Lanka's civil war in May 2009.
