  1. Happy Birthday Sri Lanka. Given your economic situation, it appears that by next year you will be celebrating naked…

  2. Srilanka attacks Indian fishermen till today and did not give Indian Island back but gets free billions from India ? India isn’t making things straight with Srilanka or securing its fishermen life first. So shameful that Indian politicians are weak towards security of its citizens.

  3. It's a result of a long history of India interference to SRI LANKA, INDIA DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR 30 YEARS OF WAR IN SRILANKA, INDIRA GANDHI LET LTTE TERRORIST TO TRAIN IN INDIA AND GAVE FULL SUPPORT. RAJAPAKSHA CAME TO THE POWER THANKS TO THE WAR THAT INDIA BACKED UP.

  4. Now asking expats to donate foreign currency
    For imports of essentials.why cannot the Rajas transfer back the embezzled hard currency stashed abroad in several countries.

  5. No country in the World has a President, PM, and few more Ministers from the same Family. Not even strongmen Putin, Xi and Kim has brothers and family members in the governing body.
    No wonder the country is in ruins.
    Who is to blame?

  6. Karma's Turn. It is working accordingly now.
    It's time for the Sri Lankan as well as the world to feel and taste how is the suffering when you imposed the same to the Sri Lankan Tamil in 2008/2009.
    FEEL THEM

  7. It never ceases to astound me that Buddhist monks like these here and in other countries such as Myanmar would encourage people to strive and desire for a better life when what is needed is detachment from this one. Unless of course, unless these men are suffering from reduced donations from the people during Sri Lanka’s decline. Cynical, I suppose, but I ask for genuine comment.

  8. Very soon there'll be terrible violence. Sri Lanka had a chance to become like Singapore in 1952. Lee Kwan Yew suggested this avenue of National Development to SWRD, but this idea was rejected!
    Sinhalese language and Buddhism were considered to be of utmost importance! And not development.
    But now it seems most Sri Lankans want food!

  9. Forwarded as received.

    Please circulate WIDELY before its too late-

    “Gota, Sarath Weerasekara and the rest in the Defence and Police establishment are planning to send in goons to create a riot and then send in the Law enforcement with the Armed forces support to dislodge and dismantle the protesters at Galle Face on Sunday evening or Monday morning time is yet to be confirmed.”

    Please be aware and ready for such a situation.

  10. Stupidity of leaders who were tricked by the Chinese into 'white elephant' projects and became too greedy for kick-backs and thought the people will pay for it.

  11. India playing cunning game with sri lanka.just their showing to the world that their supporting sri lanka.but what they have done is they capture the sri lankan foreign market share and looting sri lankan valubale assets solwly without knowing to this govt.acctually our people do not know how to capture our market correctly as a result we are unabale to biring the dollers to sri lanka.thats the main reason according to my openion.

  12. This is the culminative result of decades of toxic nationalism and Sinhala-Buddhist chauvinism. Learn your lesson now, and integrate in fair treatment and non-discrimination of your Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Burgher, Tamil, Chinese and Malay people, and don't forget your original inhabitants the Veddas.
