An Open Email To Namal Rajapaksa

By V. Kanthaiya

Dear Namal,

I read your blog post on Colombo Telegraph. It was quite saddening to know that they have removed you from your national rugby team captaincy and dropped you out from the team itself.

As a courtesy, let me introduce myself. I am V Kanthaiya, born in 1986, same year you were born. I did my best to find your email address and I couldn’t. I have a strange habit. Suppose I can’t find the address or email address of persons I want to communicate, I send that to Colombo Telegraph (CT). You may think this is utter stupidity, but it really works. Take this recent example. I wanted to send a letter of appreciation to Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka (Dr D J), and could n’t find his address. So I sent it to CT and they published it on their website. I got only a small note from Dr. D J in acceptance of my appreciation. But unexpectedly, I got a lengthy reply from HLD Mahindapala sir (HLD M), a veteran Journalist and a true Sri Lankan patriot settled in Australia. Presently, myself and HLD M are in the process of understanding each other through “constructive criticism”, however HLD M and the Donkey I have found that they have the same views about the motherland, race, religion and caste and became good friends. I believe this is well enough to describe me.

NamalLet me tell you why I try to communicate with you. I know how much painful to be dropped out of team, because I have done sports and I have been a good sports man. Well! I didn’t play rugby. I played one ‘bum’ cricket in Soysapura grounds, during my school days. In fact, I started my sports career with ‘Book Cricket’, later my friends started to say that only girls play book cricket; so we switched one ‘bum’ cricket.

This is the reason I send this Email to you. Don’t worry about being dropped out from the national rugby team. With respect, I invite you to join our one ‘bum’ cricket team in Soysapura. I also request you to bring your other two brothers, because we are running short of team members. I am also compelled to inform you with due respect that we will not be able to accept your father, Mahinda Rajapaksa into our team as there is a general gossip in our area that even if he is clean bowled, he won’t accept it and will try to keep on batting. Therefore our team members are not willing to take him into the team.

Presently our cricket team has only four members, excluding me. Two are from my office. One is named Parthi. This guy is a damn liar. When you meet him first, he will introduce himself as an Assistant Accountant working on Management Reports of projects under construction. Actually he is an Accounts Assistant working on preparing payments to the suppliers. The other one is Ayush. This guy is even worse. He is an expert in lying. He is working on procurements and deals with the suppliers extensively. I will depict you how he usually deals with the supplier calling for a payment long overdue.

Generally the supplier will call Ayush’s land line number. Ayush will not pick up the phone. After some time, the supplier will call Ayush’s mobile phone and this will be Ayush’s reply. “Machang, today I am on leave, staying home. Got severe loose-motion. Gone seven times so far. In fact I have prepared the payment voucher and forwarded it to our manager for approval. Seems it is on his table. Tomorrow is Tuesday. As per our company policy our Director will not sign any cheque on Tuesdays. But don’t worry. Tomorrow, when I go to office, as the first thing, I will take your payment voucher with me and meet our manager and get the approval and then will directly meet the director and tell him, we need to make the payment to this supplier immediately because they have given us awesome discounts, and also it’s long overdue”. The supplier will have no other option, other than calling Ayush the next day.

During this telephone conversation, all the staff in our department would keep silence and there won’t be any background noise. While Ayush talking, Parthi will imitate a baby crying in order to make the supplier believe that Ayush is really at home with his kid.

Hold on! This is not the worst thing these guys do to the supplier. Next day, when the supplier calls, Ayush will deal with him like this. “Extremely sorry Machang! I personally went and talked to the manager and got the payment approved. The problem is getting our director’s signature on the cheque. He has gone for a business trip to Thailand, and will be back, just in two weeks time. So we need to wait till then’.

Generally most of the people find it difficult to deal with Parthi and Ayush. However I believe it won’t be difficult to you as you have excellent experience dealing with Comrade Wimal Weerawansa, Mahindananda Aluthgamage and Udaya Gammanpila.

The other two members of the team are two kids studying in the nearby school. These kids hardly have time to play one bum cricket as they are always busy with their tuition classes. They are very good cricket players with a very bad mouth. Given you miss a catch; they would give their valuable comments about your mother’s chastity. Anyway, I believe you have learnt to live that kind of comments after the presidential election.

These are the general rules of one ‘bum’ cricket.

  1. The game will be played with in the team, not against another team.
  2. Everyone will be given the opportunity to bat, till they get out.
  3. The highest scorer wins the match
  4. Catches with one bounce are accepted. Any catches more than one bounce will not be accepted.
  5. Soysapura ground is a very big ground. However boundaries of ‘our ground’ are the foot path on the north, drainage canal on the east, road on the south and the brown color cow tied to the light post on the west.
  6. You can hit the ball on the leg-side only. No runs for off-side.
  7. No LBW.
  8. Bowling method – You have to stand still and throw the ball with one bounce.
  9. If you miss to hit the ball more than three times, you are out.
  10. Once you get ‘out’, you can’t leave. You have to do the fielding till everyone finishes batting.
  11. If you hit the ball outside the boundary and if it gets lost, you need to give us a new ball.
  12. You should not create any new rule during the game.

Hope you find these rules acceptable. You have a great potential to become a great ‘one bum cricket‘player in the world, because there aren’t many in the world now. I am sure your father will become president again, with the help of comrade Wimal, Udaya Gammanpila and Dinesh Gunawardena. Once he becomes the president again, we need to make the ‘one bum cricket’ our national sport. I like to see you becoming the captain of our national ‘one bum cricket’ team in the future and your brother Yoshitha, the vice captain. I am sure you will take me in to the national ‘one bum cricket team’ at that time. I don’t need much favour. My kind request is to give me the opportunity to bat, because when I was a kid what I was doing in every cricket match is fielding. Nobody gave me the opportunity to bat or bowl.

All our cricket team members are looking to meet you and your brothers this Saturday evening in the Soysapura Grounds.

With lots of excitement,

V Kanthaiya.

P.S – Some people will ask you to join their ‘Book Cricket’ team, but remember only girls play ‘Book Cricket’. Also don’t forget to bring two balls when you come to Soysapura Grounds on this Saturday evening.

    Great response to Namal baby…
    He deserves only such a response for his insensitive whining about his brothers being dropped from the rugby team.
    Him whining about political revenge upon his family (even if there was any revenge) is the biggest joke in post-election Sri Lanka. Does he not remember the false stories his henchmen spread on state TV about Sirisena’s son’s girlfriend’s father being paid in Swiss francs (or something of that sort…), does he not remember the state media alleging Sirisena hijacked a poor mother… I mean is Namal baby in his proper senses?

      Leaving all these, when would the authorities start searching for the assets collected by Namal baby et al during th elast few years.

      My uttermost wish is authorities to investigate them and get them back so that those funds amounting billions should be used for the uplifments of the lives of the poor of the aboslutly poor of the nation. Across the country there are poor ones that have no access even to the most cheap food item of the man – DRINKING water: aLL THESE they could manage if all the unethical properties grabed by Rajajapakshes would be investigated and confiscated soon as they can.

      If they had not paid taxes in compliance with the law prevailing millions should be gotten by asking them according to the law.

        Dont`t worry, the moment he is arrested he will spill the beans.
        He was immature to take up the illegal manner of his brothers being
        appointed, which he should not have.

        I suppose he would have had his Horoscope upated by now. It will
        all come up not just in 100 days but before 100 weeks!

      What a Shame we lost two great Rugby Legends for Sri Lanka, There Goes the Future hope for our International Rugby Ambitions. I wonder how many Foreign Coconut monkey here who have commented here in very negative terms did anything for Sri Lankan sports let alone sri lanka. The Sports of Sri Lankan Rugbt has suffered with this Huge Blow and will never Recover. Instead we will see more Foreign Coconut Sri Lankan Tree Monkey’s supporting other nations. But cannot their own.

        Aney bung! Sri Lanka can survive without Rajapakse boys strutting their talents. First they need to be brought down to earth from their high flying egoistic and hegemonic right to all privilege as President’s sons attitude. They abused the system and made a mockery of values that were held sacred by the common people. His notorious Nil Balkaya members were behind many of the vices and scandals that shook the country to its core. Very soon we shall be privy to all such information as it is being compiled right now.

        You must Kidding Ruwan P, these 3 boys not only set Sri Lanka rugby back 10 years by their antics, but they also ruined the careers of many a soldier, sailor and rugby player by not only forcing themselves into the team, but taking over as Captains. Have you ever watched them play, they are unfit in every sense of the word.

      Dear Namal Rajapaksa,

      RE: An Open Email To Namal Rajapaksa by V. Kanthaiya –

      Did not see your father Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa at the 67th Independence Parade. Was he with the Astrologers or in a temple asking favours from the Gods?

      V. Kanthaiya says: “P.S – Some people will ask you to join their ‘Book Cricket’ team, but remember only girls play ‘Book Cricket’. Also don’t forget to bring two balls when you come to Soysapura Grounds on this Saturday evening.”

      Make sure you picked up the two balls from the past game you played with those with no balls..

    apart from this humour, its a mystery how these guys have take the full control of the game of Rugby in the country which is still a game for the rich kids in Colombo and Kandy.

    We are very lucky that these Rajapaksa sons did not play cricket as just imagine what will happen to Mahela and Sanga? They will be taken out of the team as the focus should be on Rajapaksas and all the media coverage will be on brothers.

    It is a further mystery how come Yo-SHIT-A who happens to left the service of SL Navy still captains the Navy team and Rocket-Hit-A captains the Army team who was never a member of the Tri forces.

    Further there is few ‘foreign’ players imporated from Fiji/Samoa etc from the hard earned money of the Rajapaksas to keep their teams competive enough.

    This reminds me how the sons of Sadham Hussein controlled the sports administration of Iraq when their dad was the dictator as MaRa did for the isle called Sri Lanka.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2003/05/06/international/worldspecial/06TORT.html

    Thos Rajapaksa sons are really lucky to even walk on the streets of Sri Lanka after doing so much damage for the Sri Lankans and crimes against humanity.

      WOW, you have been an elderly person (Matilda ?) should know it better by your exp. If boys are given no access to learn it from the beginning on, they would do whatever they think is right. In that Rajapakshe family, MR has made his unmatured – bottle feeding son a boss leaving even much higher senior politicians away from the active politics of the country. Our nations book worm turn politician- highly educated law professor of the the same bunch had to sit behind Namal though he could have been the GURA above anyone -that is the cutlure introduced by MR. It was like the monkey who started playing with a swode not knwoing the sharpeness of it at all. THere were critics that MR not to have vision/wisdom comparably to his predcessors. As Minister Rajitha Senaratne made it clear – his break away had been kept secret to them even if all high profile intelligence was reported to have worked for MR. How come ? MR was isolated by his men though lived and faced it together. Kapanna bari atha simbinawa – was what I feel looking back – because they did not have any other choice. Rajitha and other ministers who bravely left UPFA should have real guts to face it – they are the real warriors of the country. All others even though they are senior – Dew, Wasidewa et al did not contribute much even today wasidewa behave as if he has lost his genitals fully.

    Hopefully Namal will learn from his mistakes.

    He should regret now how businessmen got close to him to get their work done and to make illegal gains. There are 15-20 cronies who made use of Namal for their personal gain. They became big players in the stock market and the regulator turned a blind eye over the last to years.

    Large road and building contractors made use of Namal to win big projects and we all knoe who thy are.

    Sports administrators used Namal to survive in their jobs. Specially in cricket and rugby.

    Lawyers used Namal to charge crazy fees.

    Namal baby have amazed billions from shady deals starting from Packers Casino and the Krish deal and many others.

    He was the real minister of Sports in the county and did handled that ministry though that moron Aluthgamage was kept as a puppet.

    There was some new item that he will not get the nominations next time from Hambantota as it will be either Nirupama or Chmaal.

    We need a mechanism to find all the loot that Namal has earned and send him to the Welikada for few years.

    This will send a real message for any aspiring politicians and those who want to follow dynastic politics in this county and in the region.

      Namal baby and his nil balakaya are said to have abuse young girls over the years though telling onyl the palatable through their press units. Anyways many of the girls that got raped by them have subsequently been sent out of the country offering them jobs in external affairs. These were though rumouers but worth to focus the attention of investigators. If any lanken had been raped by their mediation – should be brought before the courts. In some European coutnries, rape and drug can lead them to end up in jails for the rest of their lives.

        Documentary proving Catholic Church’s systematic abuse & cover up in USA

        Published on Jul 28, 2013
        The Vatican is being exposed for what it is: The most criminal organization in existence. The crimes that they have managed to commit against humanity for 2000 years via its criminal priests, nuns, and evil religious leaders are now being discovered worldwide, as it is written that any day now, the Catholic Church will go up in flames and be destroyed forever, as it is the mother of all abominations on Earth.

        The Protect Your Children Foundation is documenting and exposing all of its crimes worldwide, alerting entire nations of the dangers that the Catholic Church poses to our children in our communities, as they have been implementing crime schemes of rape, torture, starvation, human experiments, abuse, exploitation and more in its religious institutions, while claiming to ‘help children’. The Vatican has utilized its false appearance of mercy, claiming they are representatives of Christ, when in fact, they do this to gain trust and commit crimes. For more info, [Edited out]

        Thank you for your response. Perhaps we can attempt to change the negativities of the common mindset, a little at a time , bit by bit, by refraining to give in to it. I believe that men and women should be considered as equals. No one is superior, no one is inferior.
