    Sinhalese should understand the contemporary world rather than being as frogs in the well.This race is still haunted by false Mahawansa stories where Tamils are depicted as their villains!

    The above comment that the MAHAWANSA stories are false can come only from an ignorant tamil rascist obviously an economic refugee.
    Its not worth wasting time on such asses.
    The need of the hour is reconcilliation as the unitary character will not change and for the tamils to work out a system of administration in the North within a united country.This type of men only take that distant dream away making the lives of the tamils in Sri Lanka miserable while they lead a good life.

      Mr. Non Racist, you are a good man, but Sinhalese follow Guatama Buddah is jelous of others. Its a survival of the fittest. the major problem lies in Budhism not a Sinhala. if sinhala become Chrtianity, Islam or Hindusm is so much the better but Budhism a fake Filosofy made great Sinhalese become a begger to Middle East world. there is nothing called Singha Le… Lions Milk, its a lies.

      Practicing Non Racist Sinhala Buddhist,(MY FOOT)

      Your belief of the Poppy cock of that Humbug S Mahinda who wrote Mahawansa, where the Sinhala race has been sired by a Lion is no different to the Rod Atkinson type below who believe in God creating Adam who lived up to 900 yrs. In this day and age to see both your type exist is a curse for the Peace loving People of this world and is good cannon fodder for the American Zionist Illuminati to thrive sowing conflict for the arms manufacturers to stay in business.

        Why to look down upon in that way… ? but to each his own!

        It is how they feel about the religion. Capacities are not the same even if one is said to have studied Universities degrees. I have met muslim medical and science graduates that bring all arguments to support their blind views about eating pork. So are some buddhists; they would just stay believing any kind of jathaka kathas; ask how many among them realize the substance of the stories. None have learnt any lesions from them either. If yes, our society should be far from crime friendly to this date – is not that so?

    This man Kodagoda preached abstinence of alcohol and smoking to all for a healthy long life. Strangely the drunkard chimneys are still puffing, while the preacher has gone. There are many who live a moderate life enjoying life with these little vices in good health close to a good innings while others have long gone.

      I like Prof. NK then very much, after all, listening to his good lectures telecasted on the national TV decades ago. I know he was an old mahindian. For his own reasons, he could have had problems with alcohol (nobody is perfect), but all I know is – he is one of the uniquely talented uni lecturers that SRILANKA ever produced. I have no idea about any replace since he is no more there :(
