Colleagues think he is now being held secretly at a military camp.”We appeal to the authorities to take action to locate and Ramachandran and have him released,” the press freedom organisation said. “The fact that the government publicly acknowledges the participation of the security forces in kidnapping and forced disappearance is very worrying, but at the same time gives us hope that Ramachandran is still alive.”Prior to his abduction in the Vadamaradchi area to the north of Jaffna, Ramachandran had written for the Tamil daily Yarl Thinakural about the involvement of a businessman and military officers in sand illegal trafficking. His stories gave such details as the licence numbers of the vehicles involved and the businessman’s connections with certain officers. Following their publication, a judge intervened and ordered the confiscation of a vehicle used in the trafficking. At the same time, Tamil Tigers torched another vehicle used by the traffickers. All this angered the businessman and the soldiers concerned.Ramachandran seems to have been threatened by the Tamil Tigers in the past for having good relations with members of the security forces. The LTTE intelligence services are said to have investigated him in November 2006 after he took photos of a meeting organised in honour of its top leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran. But colleagues said he was no longer under threat from the LTTE at the time of his kidnapping.The circumstances of his disappearance establish beyond any doubt that the army was involved. Accompanied by a friend, he left the school he runs in Karaveddy at around 6 p.m. on 15 February. When they arrived next to the Kalikai Junction military camp, soldiers ordered them to stop for questioning. Ramachandran was taken into the camp while his friend was asked to leave.According to witness, a vehicle containing a military intelligence officer, two members of the EPDP (a pro-government Tamil militia) and an army informer arrived one hour later, and then left a few minutes after that with Ramachandran. His family has had no word of him since then. Several Jaffna-based journalists say he is being held in a military camp in the north of the island.

Are you a shy, quiet person who just kind of co-exists in the office? Are you negative and generally disliked? Are you the unknown new person? Whatever your situation, here are some tips that can make you the one everyone loves to be around when they’re at the office.Lend an ear: You’re probably getting tired of hearing me talk about listening. The truth is, sometimes listening is important because the speaker likes hearing the sound of their own voice, and they need a target. While this may not be super exciting for you, your coworker may just need to get something off their chest. They may not be looking for feedback, just someone who will quietly hear what they have to say. If you can do this successfully, you’ll be popular.Bake stuff: I’m not going to act like this is some genius tip. We love baked goods. That is me, you, and most people with a pulse. All I’m saying is that if you’re looking for a way to become more likeable in your office, baking something tasty definitely won’t hurt your chances.Stop the whispering: Gossiping is always a part of an office culture. While it can be a problem, it also has a purpose. There will always be conversations about the job and the people doing the work, and that can be productive. Just make sure you don’t get a reputation for talking negatively about coworkers behind their backs. Those kinds of things always seem to come back to them, so earn a reputation for not engaging in those types of conversations.Bring joy: Be known as the person who’s always smiling, who tells jokes, and doesn’t try to bring others down. Be that glass-half-full person who constantly tries to turn around office negativity. Your coworkers will like you for being a bright spot during stressful or frustrating times.
