Q Perera - Reporting from Colombo

[b]Colombo, 25 December, ([/b] The Tsunami disaster could be considered as the worst calamity in the known history of Sri Lanka and it indeed destroyed life, limb and property in unimaginable proportion. It also left behind a legacy of the aftermath that would linger for many more years to come.

While the world which mourned the untold misery that mostly affected Asian Countries, last December 26 they would this year too join the affected Tsunami victims to commemorate the great disaster and would resolve to further assist to overcome the legacy of destruction.

It also affected the country’s economy in a very bad way. It was unfortunate that when the disaster struck the country most of the cabinet ministers have taken wings to other countries and were holidaying, and further despite the worst unprecedented disaster that befell the country some of these ministers were late to arrive in the country.
