    Opportune time. Ideal Topic for discussion. An opportunity for all those Arm Chair critics to participate without heaping blame on others. If everyone of us do our bit, there can be a Sri Lankan Spring before the end of ‘Bak’. Leave no room to repent later and cry over spilt milk. Good Luck Sri Lanka.
