SL on auto pilot

SL is on auto pilot. It has been so for nearly 4 years. The ‘good governance’ guru and captain cajoled, enticed and fooled a nonentity to join him in 2015 as co pilot to sail not a fishing boat but the ship of state in 2015. It was a monumental blunder and a Machiavellian stroke. He has to sink with him now.

Where are the leaders?

It is really pathetic to note while Sri Lanka is left leaderless the minority Muslim community too has been an orphan for long with the same terrible shortcoming. They are religiously divided as in politics with various sects and one of them being totally opposed to Islamic principles and opting for violence means to convey their message.

Sri Lanka: A Tragic Lesson in Revenge Politics

My relationship with the island nation of Sri Lanka began over twenty years ago. At that time, it was engaged in a bloody 30-year civil war that eventually claimed the lives of an estimated 80,000 to 100,000 people. A deadly tsunami had devastated the country on Dec. 26, 2004, and on November 19, 2005, Mahinda Rajapaksa was elected to the first term of his presidency. From his predecessor, Chandrika Kumaratunga, a lady of questionable ethics, Mr. Rajapaksa inherited a country in chaos; it was rife with political corruption, racial, cultural, and religious conflicts, as well as poverty and social turmoil. The beleaguered natives were weary of hardship and death, of the seemingly endless war, of being left behind by economic development, and of living in constant fear that a suicide bomber might suddenly appear and blow them to bits.
