S L Gunasekara: Officer (Nationalist) and Gentleman (British)

I cannot quite remember when I first met S L Gunasekara. As I recall,it was a few decades ago at an embassy cocktail party, at a time when heads like me of scientific associations were also invited. He recalled his correct stand at the Thimpu talks which I had dismissed as Indian interference after Indian subversion. I knew the Indian academic scene reasonably well and I explained to him how Mrs B, (once co-fighter with Indira) and her SLFP were being denigrated in Indian circles.

Under no circumstances one has the right to take the life of another, even under the worst provocation, having said that I would like to bring to the attention of a brilliant cartoon posted on the internet on the Paris attack, which had a journalist lying in a pool of blood and an armed terrorist who says pointing to the victim.

 The most astonishing part of this demo, held in Paris, was Israeli prime-minister Netanyahu’s participation in it.
