By Garvin Karunaratne, Ph.D.(Michigan State University)

As colonialism was gradually disbanded in the Forties and Fifties many colonial countries were bequeathed with independence, provided with democratic constitutions for governance and allowed to rule themselves.

Chandrika and Anura – are they Bandaranaikes or Blunderer-naikes?

H. L. D. Mahindapala

When S. W. R. D. Bandaranaike formed the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), he laid the foundations for an alternative to the UNP. He mobilized the grassroots forces and joined hands with the left-wing to score his historic victory in 1956. Electoral statistics prove consistently that it was the centre-left alliance that returned the Bandaranaikes into power time and again. Tragically, his children who climbed to power on his coffin are making all the noises and the moves to get back to the right-wing UNP.Post your comments

Ravi Randeniya from Canada writes that the quest for a Tamil “homeland” is filled with bogus innuendos.

That is the solution we offer, not a dictatorship of the LTTE kind as implied.Post your comments
