Sri Lanka- Leading from the Rear

Sri Lanka became independent in 1948.Its politicians interpreted the fact that independence was achieved without shedding blood as a signal honor. It was the blood of the Indians who fought hard and long for their independence that ensured SL too benefitted. Without India, the 150 year British Empire collapsed.
