A good story: Tamil militants once, Orissa locals now

P.Sainath, Turning Tamil swords into Oriya ploughshares, Hindu, July 4, 2009.
One is a member of the Malkangiri District Cricket Association and custodian of its cricket kit. Another, a minor contractor in a public works project. A third runs a tiny shop. They’re all pretty rooted in Malkangiri. Not very different from any other small town group. Except that this one consists of a bunch of former Sri Lankan Tamil warriors settled in deep rural Orissa in one of the country’s poorest districts where they’ve been nearly 20 years.

Check out this story! It's worth it.
