Sri Lanka: Sirisena’s reconciliation would fail without punishing the guilty!

Reconciliation is closely and directly linked to repentance by those who have committed sins or crimes- knowingly or otherwise. A fake reconciliation move on the part of any regime that has committed and perpetrated crimes against minorities for whatever reasons cannot ensure peace and stability in that country. The case in point here is Sri Lanka, an island nation in South Asia facing the threat of dangerous level of climatic disorders.

Google Bashing: a synonym for a global boomerang?

Hardly a week goes by without some form of news, branding Google, the search giant, as a law breaker, especially in non-English speaking Europe.
