I’ve been trying to figure out if this was a joke or not. This is a New Year’s Greeting from the self-proclaimed Prince Of Jaffna, one Remigius Jerry Kanagarajah. He claims a royal line which broke in 1621, which is somewhat dubious as there must a) many descendants and b) few people that give a shit. I don’t think he’s in Jaffna either, but rather speaking from the Netherlands. That said, his website is interesting and I like his hat. The New Year’s message is the usual boiler-plate about everyone working together for peace which, while trite, is nonetheless true. I am not a prince of anything, but I think my great great grandfather was a guesthouse keeper in the deep south, so Happy New Year from me too.
