Japan’s role in Sri Lanka gaining independence

Sri Lanka gained Independence in February 1948, almost effortlessly (without blood letting) when compared to what other countries had to face. There was no mass-based independence struggle, civil disobedience movement or armed rebellion in Sri Lanka unlike that in India, Burma, Kenya, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Indonesia and Vietnam. Sri Lanka failed to produce a single iconic global figure in the pre-independence period that the rest of the colonized world could emulate or look up to as an inspirational figure for their liberation struggles.

Lalin's Column: Waiting for ‘One Shot’ or is it the guillotine

There was a revolutionary fervor, spirit and expectancy in SL when the new President took office in late 2019.It’s gathering momentum furiously. Five years of gross incompetency, mismanagement, fraud, treachery, debauchery and apathy had spread its remorseless wings amongst the 2015 rulers. They had believed that their countrymen who they despised would never wake up to what was happening around them. Their conned and skinflint western supporters (foreign and local) saw their dreams of re colonization turning into a nightmare.
