  1. lndians economy is so very smaII even less than china's reserves.

    if lndia's economy somehow ever surpass china's reserve they still need to grow another 6 more times to have the same china "2022" economy. and im not even talking about wealth yet, lndia needs to grow 20+ times to be the same as china right now. india could thank the british for that 200 years and 45 trillion dollar setback.

  2. Wion reported that lndia lost 45 Trillion. Whilst in the last 75 years China gained 120 Trillion

    Wion: At $514 trillion, China overtakes US in terms of amassing the biggest net worth

    Gravitas: How Britain Looted $45 Trillion From India

  3. You are wrong wion
    Srilanka belongs to Nepal
    Whole world belongs to Nepal -KP Sharma oli ,(not related to palki sharma) 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  4. The arrogance and CLUELESSNESS of the government is absolutely DISGUSTING ‼️ It’s absolutely heartbreaking what this FAMILY (Rajapaksa’s) have done to Sri Lanka and it’s people. Every common person in Sri Lanka needs to get out and protest to get this FAMILY business to LEAVE the government! Power to the people of SL! The world is with you ‼️🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  5. Our prayers r with sri Lanka , we hope nd pray tht the economy crisis tht is going on in the country get settled nd the life come backs on the normal track 🙏🇮🇳

  6. First few steps of a many steps process have begun.
    Fight until the very end that no one knows, but only this generation knows.

  7. සුපිරි සුපිරි හුත්තො 😂😂😂 🇱🇰 🇱🇰 🇱🇰

  8. If the electrical blackouts and the supply of fuel can be fixed in a hurry, the current exchange rate will bring tourists by the million.

  9. Fun fact some of my friends were trying to start a billion dollar project in the country partnering up with Japan and Italy and guess what the former finance minister Basil Rajakapsha did. He asked them 10 to 20% of the profits to start the project or else he won't give approval 2 years ago. Because of that they halled the project cause the the foreign investors didn't want their own money going to some individuals pocket when they are doing to it tomimprove hygiene and make a renewable energy city. It's disgusting knowing how many projects refused to work with Srilanka cause of him

  10. Remember, it is going to take another generation to settle all debts with China despite India cautioning numerous times. Rajapakse did not heed India 's call. Serves him and his cabinets right.

  11. Hope everyone remembers when there all suffering through this in every country. Remember Everyone rooted for this crap. Hey but grandma's safe right………….

  12. 1000 tourist would ocupy most locals in town , even 10-20 on a local wich can be much , they did like no money on tourism , no country does .

  13. Rajapaksa ain’t going to give the money that he stolen. I know lot of Sri Lankan who live abroad like Canada . Uk . Australia. USA . I think they should they should stick together & help Sri Lanka at this moment. Sri Lanka must develop industrial it can’t totally depend upon tea , tourism & rubber . Sri Lanka has to upgrade to the next level or seek help from neighbour country india 🇮🇳

  14. India should not finance in any way to prop up this genocide of Tamils regime until a new government is headed by other than this kleptocrats murderers regime . Worst than Marcos regime. Karma has come home to monks .

  15. This is new for people living in Southern part of Srilanka. For North and Eastern part where, Tamils living in Majority were used to it. Since singhala majority is suffering in Colombo, it came on news. Please make a visit on North ( Jaffna ) and East. See the difference.

  16. Sri Lanka is currently owned by a Family and they have invested in unprecedented economic development through Belt and Road ; currently what they are facing is Belting which will open up Road to heaven.

  17. Looks like the Sri Lankan correspondent is being sarcastic when she talks of minor inconveniences to tourists.

  18. Minor inconveniences when tourists pay $1000's to get there???????????? … there is no power or fuel or fresh food. They can go to other places in Asia that will welcome that kind of money with great service. You know, like air conditioning. You need to start to be real instead of sugarcoating it.

  19. SL should develop solar power and not depend on fossil fuels for power generation. Currently solar and wind generates less than three percent of the power of the total. Fossil fuels account for more than forty eight percent. Hydro and bio-mass power generation contributes the rest.

  20. White people are just sucking out of these countries but not willing to pay the same price as they would in west europe. As a west european, they should be ashamed

  21. Dear Sri Lankan people,

    Please do not bother with your political parties. They are all corrupt. Main issue is small countries cannot survive among western lead capitalism and market economy. Your economy will always be under threat whatever you do. This is why certain countries are always on top of the league in economy and politics. I would strongly suggest you to call for a national referendum to join with China or India indefinitely. Sovereignty, Democracy, and Freedom are for text books and media only. These do not exist in real world. We are all slaves to the capitalism and market economy anyway. Therefore, you will need to join with a big stable country like China or India who are much more stable than Sri Lanka. If you join with China or India permanently, eventually your people will have better living standard than struggling with your corrupted politicians. You will have more chance to join with China than India because majority of voters are Buddhist. Have a go. Good luck!

  22. As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. For all these things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, epidemics, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. “Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. And you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. Then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will rise and will deceive many. Because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:3‭-14 MEV

    (Obs: From the beginning of the tribulation to the end, which takes 7 years, and near the end, the gospel will be preached to the whole world, which would be impossible without technology of global communication.)

    “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you know that its desolation has drawn near. Luke 21:20 MEV

    “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place,(…) Matthew 24:15 MEV

    “His armies shall rise up and desecrate the sanctuary fortress. They shall abolish the daily sacrifice and set up the abomination that makes desolate. Daniel 11:31 MEV

    “From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Daniel 12:11 MEV

    (Obs: These events will take place after the construction of the third temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.)

    (…)then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. Let him who is in the field not return to take his clothes. Woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse in those days! Pray that your escape will not be in the winter or on the Sabbath. For then will be great tribulation, such as has not happened since the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be. “Unless those days were shortened, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. Matthew 24:16‭-22 MEV

    There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth. For the powers of heaven will be shaken. Luke 21:25-26 MEV

    (Obs: In the age of technology, men know what is happening on the inhabited earth, no longer are they limited by local information.)

    “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, ‘the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.’ “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. Matthew 24:29‭-31 MEV

    (Obs: This is the sixth seal of the book of Revelation, the signs of the sixth seal match the signs of Matthew 24:29-30, the sixth seal is when the rapture happens; before the great tribulation, before the seven trumpets.)

    When these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28 MEV

    Because you have kept My word of patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon the entire world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture before the time of temptation, which will be the government of the antichrist during the great tribulation.)

    For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:38‭-‬39 MEV

    (Obs: People will not be eating and drinking and marrying during the great tribulation, therefore, rapture will happen before the great tribulation, when people are still distracted.)

    When they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 MEV

    (Obs: Sudden destruction near the rapture.)

    Two will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and the other left. Matthew 24:40‭-41 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    Know this first, that there shall come scoffers in the last days who walk after their own lusts, and say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued as they were since the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3:3‭-4 MEV

    (Obs: Apostasy of the last days, when more and more men are denying God and going after their own sinful desires.)

    But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat. The earth also and the works that are in it will be burned up. 2 Peter 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: The destructions that will happen after the rapture, just as the days of Sodom and Gomorrah; the righteous are rescued and the judgements are poured upon the wicked. "like a thief in the night" means it will happen when you do not expect. "heavens will pass away" means the sky will vanish as a scroll that is being rolled up, which is mentioned in Revelation 6:14.)

    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 MEV

    (Obs: People around the world have been hearing trumpets from the sky in different times, it has been happening for a few years. When the last trumpet sound, the redeemed will be rescued and the great tribulation will begin.)

    He causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one may buy or sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16‭-17 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, no one will be able to buy or sell without a mark from the government/beast of the antichrist, which will take place during the great tribulation, which is at the door.)

    But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Daniel 12:4 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, many will travel to many places and knowledge will be increased.)

    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 MEV

    Behold, the King of kings is coming soon, repent now of all your sins — get away from all sins — and abide in the only Savior and Lord Jesus the Christ (Yeshua the Messiah) with all your heart, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
