Boys Had A Boys Party

By Arundathie Sangakkara

Now that the Post-Ranil-Partum snotty wailing of the UNP Face bookers is replaced by their “absolute shock” at a Gotabaya comeback as of 6PM yesterday, let’s get back to business, shall we?

The UNPers are a funny lot.

Some have been boycotting elections because “as long as Ranil is the leader, there’s no point”. They have been their worst party enemy, self-propagating the notion Sajith Premadasa along with Kili Maharajah commercially sustained – called “Ranil cannot win”. Since 2000, the UNP has formed two governments under Ranil’s leadership. Many arm chair politically inclined and Facebookers were ranting “Just Go Ranil and Give It To Sajith”. They called Ranil names, invoked his possibly sainted mother and criticized him in raw filth. Then they see one cute little picture of Hema Premadasa with “oh-my god I won, I won!” Miss Universe kind of “disbelieving smile” with her hand on her heart, posing excellently in the arms of an uncomfortable Ranil (who probably lost a few years of his life at this staged drama). And then the UNPers lose it. “Ranil, you are the Great Leader”, “you are the savior” “you are the uniter” “you are the sacrificer” “you are the heart- soul, liver- well not liver- of the UNP” they wail now. 

The UNPers are already missing Ranil. 

Because they see Sajith with that skewed smile armed with all the fabricated “qualifications” with the “aaryava”, mother and sister and they sense the horrendous, intellect diminishing road ahead. 

Remember, Mahinda Rajapaksa, who left the Temple Trees in the early hours of post-Presidential elections in 2015? Remember how a large section of the nation took a collective sad breath in to their lungs and started feeling guilty for voting him out? How they all started missing their Appachchi already?

At the recent UNP meeting to declare Sajith Premadasa the Presidential candidate, Ranil Wickremesinghe delivered his speech in his style. One day we will miss this man. He asked the audience to “raise their hand if they agreed to Sajith Premadasa being the UNP nominee for the Presidential election. They did. With the cute authority of a Montessori teacher Ranil then he told them to put the hand down. Like babies they put their hands down. Then he asked them to raise their hand if they opposed”. No one raised their hand.

Except Ranil. 

I think I saw him raising his hand high up.

In his speech Ranil made some interesting statements.

One was a narration on Ranil’s difficult struggle to establish himself as the leader of a leader-annihilated UNP. This is a view that has been passionately articulated both by Colombo Telegraph editor Uvindu Kurukulasuriya on CT and other media, and, Grusha Andrews on CT.

The second point Ranil raised was an important issue, also passionately raised by the above mentioned journalists on the sore lack of women politicians within the UNP. Ranil in a praise worthy attempt in his redemption speech mentioned that “even if some might become angry I must say, there are no female politicians among the second tier leadership of the UNP”.

Well done Ranil.

Finally. 

Two decades too late, but finally. 

There were some interesting women in the audience. Rosy Senanayake, the only organic woman politician and probably the only woman there who has risen in rank through her work. The other women were all just political ejaculates of their dead (or alive) fathers. Nothing much to write home about, but they were there: Chandrani Bandara (of Chandra Bandara), Hirunika Premachandra (of Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra), Chamindranee Kiriella (the ‘wannabe politician’ daughter of Lakshman Kiriella), Achini Lokubanda (of HM Lokubanda). Lihini Fernando was also seen somewhere. 

Then Akila Viraj Kariyawasam delivered a ten point road map at this convention. He first lamented that the absence of a UNP president that resulted in a lost opportunity to “take political revenge even whilst having a UNP government”. 

Well done, Mr Party Secretary. Great vision. Go ahead and try to form a government so that you can take “political revenge” How democratic. How heartwarming. (Read: Good Lord!).

Akila Viraj Kariyawasam delivered his ten point road map to a UNP victory minutes after Ranil’s speech referring to lack of women politicians within the UNP. But the road map did not contain a single affirmative word in favour of women in politics.  

This speech was followed by more luckless, passionless politicians who spoke with dust in their mouth. One was Navin Dissanayake who, a few weeks ago was sniveling for a strange “Kandyan President”. So Navin betrayed the UNP to roll at the feet of Mahinda Rajapaksa of the down south Giruwapattuwa like a pup because he wanted a “Kandyan” President? Looks like Navin has conveniently forgotten his mommy, once the Presidential candidate of the UNP, who originated from Matara. He then inauspiciously compared 52 year old Sajith to Gamini Dissanayake “dead at the age of 52”. The fate of some pregnant elephants probably just changed. 

Then came Ravi Karunanayake who was demanding to see Sajith Premadasa’s GCE O/L certificate just a month ago. Less said about that cringe worthy, sorry speech, the better. 

At the end of the drama called “Hema Premadasa’s peacock walk with hand on her bosom”, all the coalition party leaders and some well-wishers who have been pre-invited got on stage to congratulate and make a display of support for Sajith Premadasa.

Not a single woman was invited on stage. 

What a party. 

No women. 

None. 

The story of the other parties is not so sunny either. The JVP seem to be making a genuine effort to feature at least two female speakers in their rallies. However even the JVP appears to be recycling two or three faces across geography at their meetings. Even at JVP’s heartwarming meeting in Jaffna no local woman politician spoke. Hang in there and do better, Anura, you are doing better than Ranil and Mahinda in standing up for women in politics.

As for the Pohottuwa, well, there is Shirtanthi Amma (Read: Good Lord, save us from this Jayalalithaa moment) who is not really a politician. Not yet. 

There was, once upon a time one woman, who fulfills the only criterion required to make it in Rajapaksa – Pohottu politics: being a Rajapaksa. That was Nirupama Rajapaksa. Even Nirupama Rajapaksa is nowhere to be seen now. Pohottuwa is in its crude male base. 

So this is our banana republic. Where people are the comics that their leaders are. Emotional, Facebook affected. They forget the dead, the killed, the maimed, the stolen wealth, the Bond Scams, the works. 

Throw a preening ex-first lady on stage for Ranil to awkwardly hold hands with and they weep.

What a UNP. 

What a bunch of politicians. 

What a country. 

But let’s agree, no body throws an exclusive Boys Party like the UNP.

    Meandering write-up which seems to just attack a lot of people without making any sensible point.

    The main point of the article seems to be raising the fact that there is not sufficient representation of women in political parties, but if that is the message, it is lost among unnecessary attacks and diversions.

    In any case, wailing about the lack of women may send the wrong message. All right thinking people want to see active participation of women but that should NOT be through a quota system. It would be more useful for the author to provide an in-depth analysis of just why more women do not take to politics in SL. Instead the author seems to suggest that parties should find whichever women available and put them on stage, just to make it appear gender neutral. THAT IS A PATH TO DISASTER. It has already been proved in SL vis-a-vis the University admission policies which pitted Sinhalese against Tamils. Do not even suggest that road ever again.

      Hard Truth:
      You certainly hit the nail on the head in the matter of “meandering discourses” doing the cause of women more harm than good!
      The fact that women are not permitted their rightful place in ANY of Sri Lanka’s political parties speaks louder than any diatribe about the state of the so-called democracy practiced in this island.

        Emil,

        That explains why the politicians are content with the Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act, that treats Muslim women and girls as chattel owned by men.

        The political parties are treating the non-Muslim women, almost like that, except for a few sprinklings here and there.

      Surely it’s up to women to pit themselves against men and rise up in the political hierarchy.
      They have to feel the passion to represent and work towards it. I agree, Rosy used her Beauty and versatility to achieve where she is. It is-indeed hard work and no easy task. Have to admit UNP is boys club( old boys). Break the glass ceiling girls.

    WOW. Cryptic but hard hitting article, right choice of words which exposes the current state of GOP. There may not be any women representation in Lankan Politics but we have some here in CT who outdo men . They are not only honest but courageous and brave. They are not wishy – washy and beat around the bush like most men (journalist in CT) do. Men may be knowing politicians and their politicians and their politicking (that is what they think) but women are far better in understanding what shit is beneath that person (personality). Without under standing the personality but knowing a person on “face value ” is worth nothing to write or read about.

      “Arundathie
      How come the UNP did not invite you on stage. Probably not enough space. Don’t worry next time.”

      Until recently the front row was occupied by Dutta Gamani’s son Navin Nayakka whose claim to entitlement was rejected by UNP. The son of Navin Nayakka’s father’s political rival has at least for the time being grabbed the opportunity test his claim to rule the country.

      In any case does it matter to the people of this island?

        Dear Native,

        Please don’t tell me you and Emil are both in the Boys Party…
        I do not want to know , mate..

        I know you don’t like Nayakka , because he apparently burnedt down some Library..
        What can poor Nayakka do about his Old man’s shenanigans..

        Besides the UNP’s contender,s old Man massacred tens of thousands of poor Sinhala Buddhist Boys and even their Uncles.
        Now you are hell bent on making him the next Yahapalana President to give the Suckers another dose of the same Dr Ranil’s Yahapalanaya..

        Only thing I like about it this tome is the next UNP President Keselwatta Kid is doing it all from Home .
        And guess what ..
        The Kid is not going to draw even a Penny for his hard work which he reckons will be 24/ 7 a day 365 days times 4 and a half years..
        How cool is that?

        Aren’t you a blessed lot?….

          “I know you don’t like Nayakka , because he apparently burnedt down some Library..”

          Is there anything that is likeable about Navin Nayakka. The man thought he could write letter in English simply because he spent a few years in his master’s land thanks to Mahaweli project, and went on to type letter to descendants of his former colonial masters explaining about the history of LTTE, in other words defending actions of the throat slicing war criminal in London.

          Navin Nayakka should apologise to the people of this island for everything his dad to the people, return the loot, repent for burning down the magnifient building with rare books and olas.

          He should renounce his entitlement to be enthroned and longing to be the president of this island because his dad couldn’t fulfill his own ambition.

          Whom are you supporting a “Dalit” candidate or a war criminal?
          It would not be an easy walk to victory for Gota. People think rethink before they vote besides Young Anura, Hizza and Sivaji are contesting unless UNP/SLPP make a deal with all three of them. It is a question of whether UNP or Gota more is unpopular among the voters.

          Gota’s rhetoric scare a lot of ordinary people.
          And a lot of people also want to make a bonfire of his vanity, the bookshelf full of books behind him, spin doctors choice of making this brute an intellectual giant. It is difficult to sell this new image to the ordinary people, and lot of them are reluctant to buy it.

          If the National Hangman won the elections what job is he going to reward you, a white van franchise which I am sure you are not capable of managing?

    Arundathie, you’ve already said that you will vote for the jvp. Go ahead, go vote for the jvp and keep your damn mouth shut. You come here and spew your half sarcastic cr*p. I don’t know why CT Publishes this garbage.

      Sir, your language is a reflection of your class, education and upbringing. It says who your parents are, their upbringing and level of decency.
      Yes, I will vote for JVP.
      Why should I keep my “dman” mouth shut because of that.
      Don’t behave the way your father probably spoke to your mother asking her to keep her damn mouth shut.
      This sort of misogynistic “crap” of men who think that women should keep their “damn mouths shut” is one of the reasons that educated, honest women are reluctant to enter the brutal male dominated politics of Sri Lanka.
      I’m not the one using abusive language on a person whom I don;t even know in a public forum.
      You sir, can go and “keep your damn mouth shut”.
      You can do better.
      Thank you.

        Dear Arundathie Sangakkara,

        Surely you are aware that Sri Lanka had two female leaders (heads of state); probably the worst two leaders in the history of the island. People say Sri Lanka is “backwards” and “racist” because of “Sinhala-Buddhism”, in fact it is precisely “Sinhala-Buddhism” dating back to Sigiriya days that makes the culture liberal and open. The misogynism you see in the UNP is due to Christian influence; this is a replica from the Victorian era.

        “Yes, I will vote for JVP.”

        Does it matter to me as a voter?

        “Why should I keep my “dman” mouth shut because of that.”

        Does it matter to me as a voter?

        “You sir, can go and “keep your damn mouth shut”.

        Does it matter whether your “Sir” keeps his mouth shut or not as a voter?

        “This sort of misogynistic “crap” of men who think that women should keep their “damn mouths shut” is one of the reasons that educated, honest women are reluctant to enter the brutal male dominated politics of Sri Lanka.”

        As a voter does it matter to me whether women/men keep their mouth shut or not?

        Whether you are a woman or a man you are going to keep your mouth shut if either JVP or SLPP wins the next presidential elections anyway.
        Try open it if the national hangman Gota wins it.

        Please explain to us how education enhances people’s wisdom?
        What education got to do with wisdom which is the most missing/rare resource in this island?

        Bravo Arundathi! The satire in your article is remarkable, for once something entertaining as well as informative to read, rather than the bitter diatribe we see on CT. Do keep writing for CT. And BTW I cannot agree with you more regarding the misogyny in the political sphere, in all parties that is, this was a country who respected women and considered them as equal to men few decades back. What happened I would not know. But the vocabulary of Emil Van der Pooh tan and Basnayake show the depth of the society has sunk to.

        Arundathie, keep on writing to CT so that CT will not become a boys club. Some readers are already uneasy about this “lady”.
        One went as far as “The misogynism you see in the UNP is due to Christian influence”.
        Misogynism has nothing to do with religion it is all to do with the upbringing and attitude.

        Arundathie,

        After reading your second plug for JVP ADK , I thought this needs a response.

        Basnayaka does not sound bad breeding.
        It is most likely from Seethwaka, Kotte or even Jaffna Kingdom .

        Although our half ancestors the Portugese stuffed them up , they still carried on looking after our Holy Places with that cool Basnayaka Nilame Title..

        Anyway you may now stop worrying about our Sisters not getting proper Gigs in Dr Ranil’s boys Club UNP.
        -.
        Dr Ranil’d new nemesis has put a stop to it.
        That fiery brand 6 ft something lassie from Colonnawa has been recruited by Keselwatta Kid as his Running Mate.

        Wellala Gardens my new Home Turf is plastered with Posters of this formidable Duo smiling like they are already there.
        I mean at the top of the Old UNP.-

        Even Keselwatta Sr in his hey day couldn’t do it .
        I mean adorn the juicy high net worth suburbs with UNP Posters that have only Dalit reps’s faces on them..

        I am now starting to feel that the Yahapalanaya has done something for the Dalits , which JVP ADK must be proud of..Ie If ADK is still a Rep of Wijeweera’s Dalits..

        Here you go again. So just because Mr. Bus is presumably a man, and you are presumably a woman, anything that he says against you automatically becomes mysoginist; inspired by how his dad spoke to his mom; and on and on and on.

        What is the big difference between you and some village idiots who start a racial riot just because a Sinhala man is attacked by a Muslim man, never mind the personal issues that led to it?

        Let me be clear, I am not defending Mr. Bus. He used strong words and if you want to respond in kind, that is your right. But pardon me if it occurs to me that Bus would have said exactly the same thing if you were a man. There are hard words exchanged in these forums all the time. By all means, put Bus in his place if you want to, but keep the gender issue out of it.

    Boys had a boys party.
    Absolutely correct. These shaggers are all boys but indecent vulgar boys not people who can be called gentlemen politicians. They are all liked the leader a walking talking disaster by all standards.
    The saddest and funniest part is that citizen silva, perera, banda, gunda, somey, tharindu, bindu etc etc go out and vote these vulgar buggers into power so that they can come on stage and display their vulgarity without shame.
    Wonder !!!!! what hidden vulgar connection exists between them and the gay poofter leader.
    Sri Lanka Oh!!!! Sri Lanka what a lovely country but what queer people.

    Ranil wants the stupid Colombo classes to believe that he gave leadership to a leaderless UNP !

    For what ?

    To be in the opposition ? To nominate outsiders for the Presidency ? To bring down the UNP vote base from 48% to a pathetic 25% ? To be hostage of minorities , NGOs and Colombo racketeers ?

    Every organisation in the world will eventually find a leader. If Ranil was not there, a better, more national oriented and respected leader would have emerged.

    On the contrary, because of Ranil, many talented leaders have left the UNP ( with their voters)

    Ranil is a sick man who introduced a sick culture to the once robust UNP. 80% of the UNP leadership under Ranil (including Sajith, Malik, Ravi, Sagala , Kabir, Mahendran( finance guru) Harsha, are old Royalists ! This alone shows what a reactionary , backward looking scheme overcame this national political organisation supposed to serve a nation of 21 million )

    As Ranil is a deficient man in every way, he tried to justify his position by bluff and cunning manipulation. He introduced a party constitution which made the leader all powerful. He pretended by be a vast man who had to travel overseas almost fortnightly to parley with global leaders .He started attending meetings at Darvos and conferences of world Conservative parties. He talked of high finances and Indian ocean as if he was a sage.On every subject he is the last word ! But everything he touches ends in disaster !

    At the end of the day, the Bond scam showed his true colours. President Sirisena, who Ranil nominated, spits on him. The voters have left the UNP by the millions. Sajith will realize how down Ranil has brought the UNP at this coming elections.

    Ranil still remains the leader of the UNP ! What is this UNP ?

    Ranil is a good judge of character and politics

    He brought Sarath Fonseka and Sirisena as presidential candidates.

    He made Malik S. UNP Chairman.

    He did not pursue legal action against scoundrel Sartha Silva when he was CJ.

    He once made SB Dissanayake the national organiser of the UNP

    He made Dayasiri Jayasekera a top UNP man .

    He made Mahendran the Governor of our Central bank.

    He did not want to go all out against the Rajapkses hoping to put them against Sirisena and divide the SLFP !
    He thought that mediocre joke Dilrukshi Wickramasinghe is a committed anti corruption crusader and also wanted to even make her the UNP Presidential candidate.

    He is a good leader. Ha ha

      Kolla, I join you in the laughter.

      This story about Ranil’s superior political cunning is a myth.

      He has been exactly the opposite of that myth.

      But one thing he has ensured cannot be disputed.

      He has allowed all and sundry to run him down to the gutter, and none of it fazes him. Lets give him his due. That is a great attribute.

      Plato, out of curiosity, if Arundathie does not spare anyone in the political horizon and is able to see the good and bad of people with eyes with balance, what is wrong with that?
      Isn’t it a good thing that she is not taking a side nor white washing anyone.
      Even thought she has written an earlier article that she will vote for JVP, is she not critical even of the JVP’s shortcomings?
      Isn;t that a good thing?
      Why do you think its of bad taste?
      Arundathie has not written an untruth here, has she?

    So far Sajith has failed to obtain the trust of majority community in terms of his priority for National Security. People are worried if Sajith becomes President, he will appoint that useless Ranil as the PM which no sensible Sri Lankan wants to see. Unless this doubt is cleared, Sajith will have a problem to reach the majority community. It is ideal that two days before the election Sajith should declare his PM choice as Champika Ranawaka that could bring some confidence to the Majority community. By declaring at the last minute Sajith can prevent any mess that Ranil could create.

    Thank you Arundathie Sangakkara for the down to earth description in {“Boys Had A Boys Party”}
    There will be the hangover which by the way a German Court recognised a fortnight back as an illness.
    It will be fun to see skeletons walking off the cupboard, some real but most fake.
    The fake skeletons made from recycled toxic plastic overseas.
    .
    Let us look at Arundathie Sangakkara’s first sentence, shall we? {“Now that the Post-Ranil-Partum snotty wailing of the UNP Face bookers is replaced by their “absolute shock” at a Gotabaya comeback as of 6PM yesterday, let’s get back to business, shall we?”}
    At about 6 pm yesterday, the Appeal Court dismissed the petition against SLPP presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s citizenship.
    SLPP Leader and Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa’s response was that not only Gotabaya but the entire country had been exonerated.
    That will be the Rajapaksa family, and ….and….and ……..Gnanasara Thera!
    .
    Gota has not lifted a finger!
    Signs of things to come.

    What political point does Arundathy try to tell about after wasting so many lines? Nothing worth the reading. Is it a kind of mud slinging or washing the mud off? Gender equality or women participation in Sri lankan politics will not happen until the male dominated corrupted trend takes a 360 degree turn. We have fielded many but allowed only 64 women representatives starting from Adeline Molamure in 1931 upto 2015 and some of them fared well including Sirimavo, Chandrika, Vivienne Goonewardene, Ferial Ashraff, Rajamanohary Pulendran, Renuka Herath et al and some of them had earned negative or ‘not-so-good’ popularity including Wimala Wijewardhane (first women cabinet minister) and Geetha K. However, number of women under UNP had been always more than that of SLFP. As the writer expects, more women could be fielded but even the female voters will not vote them into parliament. That is the hard truth.

    This woman Arundathie’s first article appeared on CT, a couple of weeks back about how she had been a supporter of the UNP, but now she has decided to vote the JVP, because she had met the JVP leadership and she was totally convinced of their commitment. She was highly critical of Ranil for not handing power to Sajith. Now that Ranil has allowed Sajith to contest for Presidency, she has changed her tune and is attacking the UNP whole sale. I doubt that, she never was a UNP supporter, but prostituting herself and working for Rajapaksas instead. Her utter crap is not worth reading. If she is looking for customers, it would be best that she goes to Madamulane and parade there.

      Please look up the articles by Arundathie. She has written 4 articles – 2 English and the Sinhala translations of the same. She has never ever written a single line criticising Ranil for not giving over to Sajith.

      Gamini,
      You may be a man who is soliciting prostitutes or may be your mother or wife is one. You seem to know the dymnamics of prosititution of Sri Lanka so well. Usually pimps are very knowledgeable of these things.
      Congratulations to you on you knowledge.
      If your mother or wife is looking for customers for prostitution and if according to you they are available in Medamulana send them there and ear your buck.
      If what I write is not worth reading why have you not only read it , but commented as well?
      I challenge you to show me where I have criticised Ranil for not handing over the power to Sajith.
      If you don’t like what I write, don’t read it. Simple as that. There is no need to call a woman you don’t even know a prostitute just because you disagree with an idea.
      Have a great Sunday.
      Oh, good luck with your ‘business’ ! :)

        Hey Woman! Arundathie Sangakkara,

        What I implied was the Literary sense of the word and not the practical aspect. However you have proved with your rebuttal, that you are no different to the lot Pavithra Wanniarachchi, Geetha Kumarasinghe et al. Judging by them, I believe these two alone fill the void of female participation in abundance and the country could do well without increasing the numbers further. Just because you can put pen to paper to insult others as you do, you must be suffering from an inferiority complex, to have a highly conceited notion that you are some sort of Intellectual. The best is, ask your mother who your real biological father is? As for your reference regards my mother and wife are both dead and gone and I can assure they never even associated characters of your kind.

          Hey Man! Gamini,

          To quote you: ” Just because you can put pen to paper to insult others as you do, you must be suffering from an inferiority complex, to have a highly conceited notion that you are some sort of Intellectual.”.

          You should have taken your own advice before you thought you could get away, calling me a prostitute for holding an opinion.
          You started it.
          What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.
          Next time you feel that inferior, insecure, filthy need to insult a woman by calling her a prostitute, try to recall how you felt when your mother and wife were called the same.
          Next time, don’t call a woman whom you don’t know a “prostitute” just because you don’t have the intellectual tools to rebut her ideas.
          I bless your mother and wife.
          Surely, away from a filthy mouthed individual like you who goes around calling women he does not know “prostitute” ,they are certainly in a better place.
          May they rest in peace.
          Thank you.
          Arundathie Sangakkara

    To be fair, it should be noted that Pohottuwa has Pavithra Wanniarachchi and Geetha Kumarasinghe. Two women who are in no sense “just political ejaculates of their fathers.” On the contrary, they make men ejaculate in sudden verbal outbursts unable to endure their rousing vitriol. They have kept me awake many a sleepless night by their sheer cattiness.

    Boys Party that ejaculates Girls…Nice one Arundathie..
    Poor Rosy took Hirunickers under her Wing in 2015 and incubated her to become the shining star of the Boys Party.

    I have listened to her speeches and feeds to the Colombo Media Scrum and they are absolute gems.
    I don’t know how Arundathie missed to notice that talent, which was in fact in the front, when Akila boy dished out his 10 point Plan of the Boys Party…

    Although not a great fan unlike Mr Shaymon Jayasinghe , I must admit Dr Ranil has been a great Leader for Elite , Anglican and the Vellala inhabitants in Colombo…

    With the least popular Candidate among them getting the nomination, I am intrigued about the outcome if Keselwatta Kid gets rolled by Nandaseana.
    With Muralithran and the Missus joining the Phottuwa, it certainly looks like the Kid has his work cut out on November 16..

    Could it be the watershed in the Boys Party to make it a Heterosexual Mixed Party for the first time in in its History?.
    Will Hirunicka from Kollonnawa be the next Premadasa from Keselwatta?..

    Shyam.

    I see that you are fully armed as a Knight holding a brief for Arundathie[ nice name ].
    It is not a question of being right or wrong; Pl.note I typed that it was sensational; Truth or untruth apart.
    Once a knight always a knight; But for me once a night is enough!

    It is about facts and dosent matter who is willing to present that to the public. For me facts are different from party line, individuals and politicians. If this writer is the one who is willing to provide it , so be it. Most Lankan politics have been influenced by men , just like most other countries including the US. Some women (Srima, CBK came on the back of a sympathy wave, which the party exploited )were thrust into power, out of circumstance and not as choice. So we get the credits for having a women in power, I believe after Israel. But in reality it is just the physical presence and dosent mean equal participation. Today (in fact since independence) most major parties UNP, SLPP (even among Rajapaksas no women, if Shiranee was suggested today, it is to exploit) JVP , SLFP are nothing but “all boys club “. In India they have passed a law , that minimal women representation is mandated to maintain party eligibility. This has improved their participation but still dose not have much say in administration. But they had Sonia, Jeya and Mamtha to show. Where as we Lankans have nothing to show. We had a CJ, who was thrown out overnight. Srima , who,s civic rights taken away soon after her tenure. Just a few ministers with no real powers but to satisfy public perceptions. We have able and efficient women in Medicine, teaching and other essential fields , so why not in politics??? I read the article as lack of women representation and not a political/party view. Better to read articles without shades. Once Grusha wrote with a title “tubes tied ” and readers got fixated with the title any failed to understand the content. My question is there is so much of shit written by men , on a daily basis here in CT. ie, Mahindapala, Rajeewa DJ —-etc, No one seems to have issues reading and digesting, so what may be the problem for readers with Arundathi or Grusha ????

      On behalf of all women, everywhere, thank you. Even if you may disagree with some of my ideas, your just and human decency and your liberal views touch my heart.
