How Rajapaksaism Destroyed The SLFP

By Vishwamithra

“The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.” ~Nicco Machiavelli                                        

There was no Machiavellian nuanced statecraft. There was no Dudley Senanayakian transparency and honesty. There was no Jayewardenesque stoicism. There was not even lofty but empty rhetoric of the likes of S W R D Bandaranaike. There was no veiled brilliance of a shrewd leader; only undisguised greed for power and unremarkable exercise of it was visible and this unkind spectacle was being witnessed by a wretched citizenry of a nation tired of waiting for the manifestation of a messiah. The withering values of a community loosely bonded together by the harsh and hostile powers of the British Raj and controlled by the alien Administrative and Financial Regulations (AR & FR) of Westminster rules guarded by the ‘Establishment Code’ of the same civil service, could not withstand the onslaught of an expanding culture that descended upon the unsophisticated majority. It is intellectually dishonest to classify this culture as novel or fresh; it has been there encompassing the collective body of Sri Lankans ever since Independence, yet its development as a dynamic social force was not all that visible and noticeable. Its accelerated alacrity, its concealed state of decay, its eager sense of being identified and categorized as the norm and not an exception and its eventual capture of the collective psyche of the general masses were all conducive to a society that is maddeningly oblivious of and insistent on self-mortification.      

With each passing year since the dawn of the Twenty First Century, Rajapaksaism that was the culture and ideology of the day kept brainwashing the trusting masses on their ideology, strangely estranged from the broadcasted Bandaranaike policies of serving the interests of the ‘common man’. Bandaranaike’s SLFP was a unique political concoction, drawing its strength as well as weakness from the five pillars (Pancha Maha Balavégaya) upon which it was founded. Its core-best was essentially made up of the Sinhalese-Buddhist elite in the backward areas of the country and the enormous appeal it had was translated by this Sinhalese elite as a political party determined to right the wrongs done by the successive colonial rulers, Portuguese, Dutch and the British, unto the majority Sinhalese-Buddhists in the country. This approach adopted by the rank and file of the SLFP paved the way for a new positive awakening amongst the majority on the one hand and an irreversible radicalization of the response by the Sinhalese-Buddhists in the rural regions to the English-speaking Sinhalese in Colombo and other big cities such as Jaffna, Kandy, Galle and Kurunegala.

Consequently, ugly and unquestionable signs of polarization of a nation were showing their obnoxious countenances everywhere. An immeasurable dynamic of national divisions along ethnic streaks began taking over the average mindset of man who, a century ago knew no such visible partisanships whatsoever. The division between the Northern Tamils and Southern Sinhalese remained a subject of discussion, especially among the foreign-educated; various solutions and resolutions proposed and rejected among which were federalism, Tamil homeland, district councils, fifty-fifty demands and devolution of political and administrative powers were discussed and intense debates performed in English language by these very same Pukka Sahibs whose knowledge and empathetic feel were next to nothing.

Into such a vacuum of political thought and action entered a Sinhalese-Buddhist nationalistic streak that was more based on ethnic hatred and social envy. Introduction of Sinhala-stream education is indeed a highly commendable feat. Yet the negligence and oversight of its long-term ill-effects, its drastic measures of disregard of English as a tool of the upper-class of the land coupled with the haste with which the whole policy was put into action deprived the ‘children of the ’56 revolution’ of opportunities that were available to their preceding generations. Unavailability of facilities in the distant schools in Ceylon for English education contributed heavily towards the gulf between the city and rural students in the country to be further widened.

Sri Lanka Freedom Party which began this revolution was not ready to handle this worsening situation and the eventual demise of its founding leader at the hands of a Buddhist Monk personified the cruel irony of his ‘Swabhasha’ policy. Yet, SWRD could never be blamed for financial corruption or nepotism. In the three short years when he ruled the country, there was no identifiable relative of his occupying the seats of power; neither his wife, children, though they were relatively young, or any blood relative of Bandaranaike was dictating to government officials what or what not to do. But his departure spelled another kind of departure from the party, SLFP. When Sirimavo Bandaranaike became the leader of the party, the political dynamic changed, never to go back to a non-nepotism political entity. Various cliques were found to be forming among the relatives of Sirimavo Bandaranaike. There was the Anura-clique, Sunethra-clique, Chandrika-clique, Felix-clique, Mackie Ratwatte-clique etc. Each of these cliques had its loyalties to its specific leader, yet when taken as a whole the collective loyalty was to the Party. Formation and development of a modern political party into one that is essentially and fundamentally a ‘family-oriented’ political body began in earnest. What Mahinda Rajapaksa inherited was this political party.

The rank and file of the SLFP was so fed and nourished ever since the departure of its founder SWRD Bandaranaike in 1959 right up to 2005, on a regular dose of family-bandyism, they never saw a world without family rule. Its party hierarchy may have been reflecting a structure that was manned and womanned by non-family members, yet when in power, that power always revolved around the family and as a result the leadership was never ever available to the so-called ‘common man’ under whose name it came to power. The cliques were different but their collective subservience was to the family-collective. Mahinda Rajapaksa fitted into this convoluted mindset of the party and its rigid physical structure like a well-greased palm into a surgeon’s glove.

The same parade of family members of the ruling leader continued in a more blatant and brazen fashion. Cliques began their gradual formation: Basil-clique, Shiranthi-clique, Gotabhaya-clique, Namal-clique, Chamal-clique, Yoshitha-clique and Rohitha-clique ruled the day. And the rank and file unashamedly accepted this tragi-comic spectacle. The same principle applied and the same principle was enthusiastically propagated. One after another, the loyal clique members paid their puja to their respective masters. But there was a marked difference between this exhibition of loyalty and one displayed before the Rajapaksas stumbled upon the treasures of the SLFP leadership. The Bandaranaikes played the same game with some finesse. The Rajapaksas, in the slang of the common man, were ‘yakkos’.

Maithripala Sirisena is an anomaly. The political party that seemed to have lost her way among the members of this family or that family all of a sudden had to be loyal to its new leader who could boast of no family hegemony. But the Rajapaksas who were expelled from power at the elections could not come to terms with this non-family-dominance of their party. A significant part of the rank and file too seems to have found the new leader ‘unworthy’ of their veneration. The current conflict in the Sri Lanka Freedom Party is essentially that, the absence of room for cliques to be formed and developed so that several, instead of one, route to the leader are available.

The United National Party (UNP) on the other hand, with all its other weaknesses, could stand aloof of this self-destructive mechanism called nepotism. The one and only instance was when D S Senanayake, the founder of the UNP, had the intention of handing the party leadership to his son Dudley. But to the credit of Dudley Senanayake, he in turn did not seek any indulgences in nepotism and nor could any fair-mended person question his qualifications or credentials for the job. Corruption and nepotism were far from Dudley’s mind.

The expulsion of the Rajapaksas at the elections in 2015 did not seem enough for the Rajapaksas. A misplaced and strong sense of ownership, not of the party, but of the country, seems to be their overpowering sentiment; an uncommon sense of avariciousness, accumulation of wealth and other comforts at the expense of the common good of the common man totally consumed them and the unjust and utterly ruthless manner in which they treated the then Commander of the Army and Chief Justice stand out as mindless exercise of mindless power when they held that power.

But the tragedy lies elsewhere. It resides in the fact that there are a sizeable number of gullible morons who still hang on to these brokers of greed and gluttony. Their support for these politicos who are a vile example of power-seekers has buttressed them to form a new party. The challenge before the SLFP leader who also happens to the President of the country, the man who had the daring to oust Mahinda Rajapaksa from power is to cleanse the party he seems to love so much. Or perhaps, it might be too late now.

    Is the author going to write an article on how Ranil W destroyed the UNP?

    Does the author realize that under Ranil the UNP could not even field a candidate at the presidential election the last two presidential elections?

    Does the author realize even with the SLFP split, the UNP under Ranil W could not even muster a simple majority in the last election?

    The author continues to wear green coloured glasses!

      Anyone in politics should declare their assets – should be made compulsory.

      If anyone would not do so – should be brought before the courts so simple.

      But in this god punished island – almost everything is not easy.

      Reason – stupidiy of the people. They let easily abused.

      How come incompetent Malini and Gheeta entered to lanken politics? Murderous unethical Rajapakshe should respond to it let alone today ?

      if none of them have proper income to continue their lives, they should be entitled to some donatiions groups.
      That bitch Gheetha had been running a brothel in Switzerland. She just became a curse to lanka since Rajpakshe let her abuse her mouth for their sake.

          Dayan shoud be the top of all worst men in lanken spotlight.

          He has been fighting for his job for such a long time. I dont know a man with such selfish thoughts as DJ.
          My3 AND RW would never appoint him to clean their toilets, but MR and Premadasa would do.
          DJ has no future – his days of self proclaimation are numbered.

    As you say rightly in conclusion – “it is too late now” An electorate of virtual cattle fed on punnakku is waiting to throw the Gamarala clique out – lock, stock and barrel: self-proclaimed do-goodies Ranil, CBK, Mangala and all. The “known devil” (MR’s own description) waits in the sideline to take over the economically rotting cadaver. Sooner than later Indo-China rivalry will be seen in near-military terms – God forbid. Sri Lanka will be turned out to another Beirut. Our political leaders will take refuge in Beijing, India and where else??? The Sinhalese – political leaders, civil society, the clergy – will have to hold themselves responsible for this enormous tragedy. The saving grace is one does not have to worry about solving the ethnic issue. Because, the Sri Lanka we knew simply would have vanished. The Chinese are, by law, entitled to claim our land for their unpaid loans. Tamils will be given their Separate State in a platter – despite their refusing it.

    Mark my words. I speak in all seriousness.

    Not only Rajapakses; Chandrika, Anura, Sirisena are equally responsible for destroying SLFP.

    Nepotism in Sri Lankan politics was started by UNP. There were several Senanayakes in politics.

      But Rajapkashe is the worst.

      Who else hired srilanken airline flights for their own entourages packing all their kith and kin to Rome ?

      Each head costs 1500 Euro

      200 of kith and kin cost the govt.

      1500 x 200 = 30 00 00 ( three lacks of euros – 510 00000 = 51 million of rupees. )

      There are masses in the country whose roofs are made out of polathu.

      if any of these people would have been helpd with 2 lacks of rupees… how many of them could rise their heads ?

      These men are really abusive people.

    Had President Premadasa not been assassinated he would have changed the course of the politics of this country and made cosmopolitan UNP History…..Fortunately or unfortunately now Rajapakshas have emerged after 25 years and carved out as the next rulers of the Country …they will ensure ,IF get hold of power , non-emergence of any formidable threat to their rule….

    The deeply devided politics that was once with the British nurtured cosmopolitan Elites is now in the hands of the Organics…societal change… It is nothing but the inevitable natural phenomenon that cannot be reversed…

    The Executive Presidency created by the Cosmopolitan Elites 40 years ago to prevent the power being shifted to the organics has failed ..in fact it has made a subservient society with slave mentality
    ..thanks to Pirapaharan…

    It is now bloody dictatorship…

      Lion, if I may remind you;
      HE WAS THE WORST to that time.

      There was an interview broadcasted by BBC, in which the man betrayed the nation ” if JVPrs can kill my men, why not I counter shoot them”. This is good enough tell th eprofile of Ranasinghe Premadasa.
      Those who came such background are entwined with a kind of inborn inferiority complexes.
      That was the case with Rajapakshes.
      How dare the bugger comparen SWRD with his father DA Rajapakshe.
      It is like compareing an ant with an elephant or what ?
      From background and education, SWRD was recognized across the world. DA Rajapakshe was a bone licking dog of them to that time, but alone to give a birth to a man of Mahinda Rajapkshe, he should be an idiot.
      Mahinda Rajapakshe is the most abusive above all in the south asian history, He killed notherners and sourtherners no matter consequecnes would be dangerous.

      It was better to pass the power, to a MULTI criminal in a prison, than to a Rajapakshes.
      Aboslutly no go.

    A majority of Lankans are duped by mausoleum-ism …………. power/popularity derived by paying homage to a deified long dead person who is supposed to have had mythical goodness/love for the country/people ……….

    This is a malady affecting backward societies ………….. General Perón used to cart around the embalmed corpse of his first wife. …… Once General Perón kicked the bucket his second wife used to cart around his corpse. ……….If one thought that we Lankans had a monopoly on …….. a penchant for the macabre.

    That’s why the Rajapkses build a mausoleum to the unremarkable parents (it’s not the parent’s fault; it’s the children who want to wring some value out of it) …………… to deify them and give them mythical qualities they never had, and if known, out of modesty, probably wouldn’t want to have………….. That’s the Rajapakse broods’ tilt ……….. to reach parity with the mausoleum-fied Bandaranayakes.

    Thank God that only mausoleums are forced on us Lankans ………….and not corpses ………….. dunno about ya, but the ghoulish looks of the dead give me the willies ……….

    Of all the places one could have been born …………. why Sri Lanka? ……… That’s the first question to my maker if I ever run into him.

    The problem lies that the man is over greedy in power. If it is not on his hand, but to pass to his son whose knowledge is comparable to that of a street monger about lanken politics.

    No matter anyone would stand against, this man led groups abused the nation Derana and Hiru TV channels for their political surivial. EVn today, derana Chathura Alwis keeps travelling to Korean expatriates in order to collect their sums. This has been set every 2 months or so. Those living out of the country have been targeted to collect more. Most of these people are labour commiunities. Wimal Weerawanse the most abusive mouth piece being used for Rajapakshe propaganda is handling diasphora living in Italy.
    There are also some other men Punchi hewa or other that do rest of work. All these men are like blind folded. May be these men have been promised for their future as is the case with Dayana Jayathilaka who brings articles to CT posts almsot every week. Latter is the worst in lanken political analyses, but the man is today cornered to his 4 walls. He thought My3 WOULD offer him a post, but that did not work. DJ mouth nature cant be reliaable to anyone. He is like lonely wolf … that would never sense the broader picture but own his.
    Anyways, this is typical to lanken politics.
    Most of these men and women are like those who dug soil and left the premises so chaotic in Gamapaha. Looters of all nature abused the country as nothing can help.

    Srilanken Parliament is the mirror image of the society.

    Even if some significant numbers would stand against any kind thugs based politics, democracy of lanken nature would never give them to represent their thoughts.

    These are just so called democracies, that live just by the name of them.

    Hedgemonic styles have infiltrated during the last 10 years as no times in the past.

    Not brain but muscle was given the place by former leader. The kind of leaders should be jailed for the rest of their life.
    Further to wait and festate the wounds of the victimized must not be anyfurther.

    Today, the folks still back the thugs just that they believe, Rajapakshes have been instrumental to eleminate terror.
    That was collectivity succeded LTTE terror elemination. But thugs rallied round to Rajapakshe painted it … MEDIA SHOULD be blamed for all the mess.
    Media men should be beheaded for blantant lies spread across the country.

    So long these thugs would be part of lanken politics, there will be no easy lankens to raise their heads.

      “Today, the folks still back the thugs just that they believe, Rajapakshes have been instrumental to eleminate terror. That was collectivity succeded LTTE terror elemination.”

      When you say collectively did you mean VP, Hindia, USA and 29 other countries?

      “So long these thugs would be part of lanken politics, there will be no easy lankens to raise their heads.”

      More racism, threat and bigotry towards the stupid people will vote for the thugs, crooks, liars, ….. ballot riggers, …..

          Me to Ranjith, I question how could all come that far in terms of letting the buggers to do what they thought was right.

          That is through local media men.

          Media is very important in a country. If media would follow the gospel theory of Hitler, nothing truths go to people.
          People are just ordinary, that make up over 70% in the country. MOST OF THEM would not engage searching for facts, but just what hear are their source of information.
          If information are just hearsay being spread by the idiots of Wimal weeranwas nature, so, they start believing what Wimal weerawanse thought was right.

          WW – is a street monger or the like mentality. Whose education is just upto 8 grade.

          So he has no whatsoever knoweldge on the west.
          He became very proud Mafia king to have offered him foreign trips.
          MAFIA king thought it was his own money… family wealth, but abused fund making up to few hundreds of billionsfrom national treasary.

    Vishwamithra quotes Nicco Macheavalli ~ “The first method of estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men around him”
    Rulers almost always do not tolerate intelligent persons!
    Thank you Vishwamithra for the home truths.
    Party leadership is the route to ownership of the party with right of inheritance and all that..
    Ruling is synonymous with owning. Owner of a relatively poor country will be the richest.
    Lankans are sophisticated learners. They will bridle this tendency.

    Declaration of Assets: There is no doubt that this greedy man robbed the nation and through that action robbed all of us. But the robbing continues even today at all levels of government. How can we stop it?

    There is already an effective mechanism for doing it. But it lies unused and ignored like a bottle of powerful and effective medicine in the cabinet while the patient is dying.

    It is the declaration of assets. With the approach of the LG elections, we hear about this again – that the candidates must declare their assets. How many have done it and what we will happen if they do not do so or if they falsify the declarations? Have all the MP and Ministers elected by the 2015 elections declared their assets? If not who are they and why are they roaming and robbing freely even now without any repercussions?

    We should insist very strongly that this be enforced. if someone is found to refrain from declaring any asset, it should be taken over by the government and sold with the proceeds going to the treasury. We must never forget that this is daylight robbery even from the poorest of the poor of our country

          I think we should try to build up a strong public opinion on this matter. If the existing laws are strictly implemented, or at least the threat of being implemented, there would be an effective barrier against such offenses. But whether that would be effective against offenders having their assets in black money is another matter..

              A really HARD stand: Sama, you say, “It is really hard EDWIN”. I agree and I understand and I sympathize. Not surprisingly, that is exactly what Silvestra also said on many occasions, except that she added a Mr. Title before my name. The Filipinas are highly professional and know how to be respectful, in addition to other things.

              Now that the secrecy has been blown open, I must say that this has been the lament of many. You mentioned the RTI and I am sure that the RTI has been responsible for this encroachment in to my private life. I am not a public figure. I am just a ptutujjana. But I take a hard stand on such things.

              You know what is wrong with you Lanken Tamil refugees living in EU doing menial jobs. It is that you have lost your sense of humour. Not that you had much of that even before you fled. But living with Nazis, the most humourless people I have met, you have lost what little you had.

              But don’t lose hope. Stay with me. You will get it back.

        Sama, your New Year hopes are not going to come true anytime soon. I am quite healthy. The absence was due to pressure of work. So accept the reality of me being alive for another 2 decades at least. IH lived up to 93 and I hope to break that record.

        On the other hand I have a feeling that you are being affected by Alzheimer disease. I work in Saudi Arabia and live in Bahrain. Got it? Don’t forget that. Please write it down and keep it in a safe place. Sama, don’t lose hope. See the movie ‘Still Jane’ about a woman like you , suffering from AZ and how she handles it.

        Best Wishes to you all – friends and enemies equally – Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

      That is very difficult Mr Rodrigo.

      Just talk to your negibour down there, if he would agree with you.. most of lanken in general would not care about declaring their assets. No matter how they have gathered them, is secondary to them.
      I happened to talk to a skolehamine during my last visit paid to lanka, few months ago she was hell bent by the wonders Rajapakshes may have done to the country. Alone high way was a real wonder to her little brain. I thought lankens are kept update through daily news telecasted and broadcasted by local senders. Uganda, and several other afro countries too have got highways even expanding to thousand kms .. by date thanks to Chinese investments.
      Neigoburing india too have got built them recently opening th eeyes of HINDI films intoxicated orginary people. So ours to see it as an spectacular thing is a joke to me.
      Anyways, if media men would update them accordingly nothing woudl have been like – people becoming that stupid to date.
      Everyone is ready to go after kendera baelima, polgaesiima or hakkgediya lewakaema than their own initiatives when achieving things. LATELY, even school going children have been approached by idiotic politicians and were distributed pens and pencils. Can you imagine ? Most of them were accompanies with blessings of yanthra manthra karayas.
      I think time has come we need a leader of Lee quan you nature.
      Else nothing will change to the beneficiance of th emasses.

        Doing Difficult Things: When starting the Moon landing program, John F Kennedy said, We want to go to the Moon not because it is easy, but because it is difficult. It is said that the Americans managed this huge and seemingly impossible task because they were crazy and stupid enough to believe that it could be done.

        So why not try? As a start learn about block chain technology . Google it and read. You guys do not have the same IQ as me – obviously. But what you have seems to be good enough to understand Block Chains.

            Edwin when he was cornered with his pants down for the racist onslaught in this column against Tamils went into hiding exhibiting the same habit he had during LTTE times when he hid under the bed. Analysing the writing of one Percy in this column, the style of writing resembles that of Edwin and hence Edwin the coward who is afraid of Tamil diaspora is now unleashing anti-Tamil rants under the pseudonym of Percy. He is a stooge of Arabs having stooped low to them and hence he cannot support Arabs openly without falling foul of his catholic friends and relations and hence this name change to Percy.

        Dr Rajendran too was a nice person. I miss them all. 93 year old IH sounded as if he was just in his teens. I sometimes felt, he should not be that old.

        Anyways, he was one of the good commenters to this page. Hope he enjoyed himself a lot having been able to add his own thoughts at the of his last days.

        Pissu Edda,

        So you are back – in the CT. How long was the stay in the mental asylum this time? Qatar! Why Qatar? You told us you were in Bahrain.

        How is a looney like you managing to hold on to your job? That explains the IQ level of your Arab employers. Sri Lanka is the right place for you – Parliament notwithstanding. This is where the crooked, the twisted and the brainless politikkas survive. A country where patta horu, who rob the country left, right and centre – are pardoned by Courts with a Rs.1,000 fine On second thoughts, I suspect you have come here to canvass for the crooked – The Family. Or is it, as the saying goes “birds of the same feather flock (or something else) together”

          I think it is better him to be back and stay quarreling with us again.

          Most of the time, his answers started about telling his boastefuls about Silvestra and Dr. KD.

          Every second article added by KD was praised by EDWIN as he thought that shoudl be the way to start the talk on CT

          Anyways, he also added som good points about the topics that were very abstract.

            Oh Yeah, Sama. Thanks for mentioning Silvestra! My perfect housekeeper. Xmas always reminds me of Silvestra – a strong supporter of Rodrigo Duterte. AKD always misspelt that name, which annoyed Silvestra a lot. Perhaps what we need is someone like him (I mean Rodrigo D not AKD) as our Presidante. RD has many plus pints including a more modern approach. But his main advantage is that he is a Rodrigo. Rodrigos always have that kind of creativity, initiative and imagination to try new things. AKD sadly misses all that and can never be our President.

              Naki manamalayas of your nature may have done almost everything to please her is what I feel.
              Now for some time, number of naki manamalayas is said to have grown up in the countr ythan among expatriate communities.
              Yes, Edwin, we respect you so long your tongue would not become racial. This is just a platform where we can exchange a lot not being part of lanken extremist of any nature.
              Alone the picture above says everything how thuggish he should have been. Just to be the leader at the time, collectivity worked on elemination of terror held in the country for 3 decades.
              We are not reborn, any leader came to power did their way to solve the long standing problem, and CFA and other pacts saved the lives of soldiers. If anyone would not utter a single word about that should be suffering from biased amnesia that Rajapakshe Propagandaists have spread through.
              Anyways, by 2005, the LTTE political wing had been paralized to all ends, not having a proper leader, which as we know from EUrope are the truth. Nor had they a leader to replace Balachandram. All in all, the fact that late Mr Kadiragamar and his fearless efforts got LTTEs banned on any rich soils, led us to marginalize them in those soils – which is the truth.
              But lanken biased media, which are the real cause of lanken problems by date, painted the picture in favour of Rajapakshe kith an kin.
              Just imagine, the picture above should not be THE REAL one to represent ones living in a buddhist culture for centureies.
              Power intoxications have made the man so pompous as no other leader lived ion the country, It is like if a class mate was fooled to be the best, … he became ” mama thamayi miniha style”: Lanken artists and selfish people made him a pulligonna and the man who started the oiffice in 2005 became unidentified by end of 2015.

              Tell us , if these are no truths, anyone with a little brain would ever abuse the lanken airline loading all kith and kin, even if they long knew the bankrupsy could cost the state that many billions. What went through the head of balligeputha adminsitration ?

                Each time travell through ME countries I feel, most labour communities work as guest workers to them. But among them the major part should be from Philipines and India.

                Actually we as a nation can produce lot more skilled workers to the world. Why cant we train nurses so that they can work in Europe and america.

                Standard trainings should be provided to them can shape up their future. Lankens in general learn good English in the school. I met few nigerian medical doctors last week. They each of them had experience with lanken teachers who had been their teachers few decades ago. Lanken teachers among the others had earned a good reputation in Nigeria than anywhere else. But the qualitiy of teaching profession was mildered by Premadasa’s stupid appointments made to appease anyone in the begining of 80ties.

                Sama, The picture that you refer to raises a completely different type of emotion in me – admiration. The man has charisma. Sirisena or Ranil has none of that.

                MR looks like a roaring lion in the photo above making the jackals tremble in fear. It is obvious that those cowardly jackals would never cheer MR. It is a good picture expressing what kind of person the subject is. Anyway I am glad that you are not a moderator of CT. You advise me not to be racial. What you mean is that I should not support MR or the Sinhalese and that I should support the Tamils and the Tigers?

                At least try to acknowledge that opinions differ from person to person. As the Malayalees say in their inimitable style, “dafren dafren people have dafren ideas”. That is what makes life so interesting.

                  I hate the bugger I cant see a man become that intoxicated as no others.

                  I respect Mr SIrisena, CBK, Mr RW, and several other men still living in the country as seniors. I respect RW, he is the best among the few we have left. He can represent us better than anyone of YAKKA s nature.

                  I have never been a supporter to lanken party politics, but now I feel we must change our attituudes and do what we can in terms of marginalizing radical men of MR or his calibre.
                  Even Sajith P would have been fine, if he has collected exp… in lanken politics.
                  I dont care about the look, but I respect the politics. I know it is hard Mr Sirisena not being that strong from his apperaeance, but we need to respect him for his sacrifices.
                  In india Singh was a like Mr Sirisena, he was quiet and slow moving guy, did not have a good personality either, but Rajive Gandhi and others had it, but among the few, India produced, Dr SIngh could also face it and master peaceful politics in and out.

                  What I meant is – Rajapkshes = Racists = Extremists… not to support them.

                  What is wrong in that Mr Rodrigo ?

                  Who on the earth leader being defeated further hung on the party in order to pave the way their families ? What has MR been doing ?

                  He is an idiot by everything – to wear over 40 talishments on and out of his body before leaving home – as reliable sources revealed – he is the one who promoted lanken to become fools – going after astrology and sorcery.
                  Please get your facts Mr:
                  Today, almost 90% are after astro than had ever been in the country.

                  It is the trick – BUDDHIST MONK AND ASTRO BELIEVERS put together fool the nation so that abusive politicians can mobilize their abusive politics. More become fools, consequently, voters are stupid.. and meida men work for MR do the job in the aspect of propaganda.

                  Please open your eyes Mr Rodrigo. That can then help masses, since you are guy with some knowledge who can then promote good way of life… living like a supporter to extremists can only paving way for a bad future for our young ones.

                  Rajapkashe = Premadasa

                  Even worst than him. At the time, Peradeniya Uni was closed without further notice, we left the place for escape, I could leave the country for further education, but my mates were burnt down as animals would have roasted. Whose acts were they if not of Premadasa… or JVP facists.

                  And again, Thadjudeen or other innocient also after WAR to be killed or let disappearing should not be neglected, if done by Rajapakshe men. For that matter alone, it is worth hanging him by balls. Or not ? SLanken soils are wet by the tears shed by mothers, bheeshanaya had been the case until 2015.

                  When rascals become leaders, they would pave the way rascals to destroy the nation. That is what we experience today.
                  No matter even lovely ones would have been taken away by force, mediocre would go after MR led groups.

                  Is that fine for a better future ? Young generations should not suffer the way we went through not having proper leaders to help the nation the way lee quan yu did.

                  Let us have a cup of tea when travelling via Bahnarain or Saudi next.

                  There, you can come to know personally. I just added about Nakimanamalayas, since i happened to read lot more about sex abusers in the country today. Most of them are coming from over 55- 70 age groups.

                  I only know uneduated housemaids have been abused by own men in Saudi or other ME countries. This i got to kow from one of our Arab colleague ( Meidcal doc) working in UK. He revealed a lot about lanken diasphora living in ME countries.

                  Anyways, I was notright to attack you above , but still added the hateful word -NAKI MANAMALAYAS- since these topics should be open to many for discussions.. I know not every senior guy would do such harms. But we should introduce proper laws. that i think is the need of the hour.

        Of course you and the other lot like, Sama, Littesomethingortheother, Samuel, Sam et al are just the Avatars of the same single being. This being seems to be in asylum in Germany…. Bo let us not start fighting. Thanks for missing me. and I missed you equally. Instead of fighting, insulting and verbally attacking each other let us see what we can do for Mother Lanka. No that would be very dull. Let us do a little fighting too.

        By the way Qatar is our enemy now. So let us forget about that.

      Lankens in general would not want to continue anything on a regular manner.

      Actually, we must not raise the question if all have submitted it. Those responsible authorities should bring all to the eyes of public, if there are discrepancies.

      I have no doubt, Rajapakshes would not declare anything.

      Like it was the case with Gadafi, shortly before he was found dead in a drain- or killed and thrown to a drain, they had never exposed anything about their own finances.
      Rajapakshes are such shameful buggers, that would not resepct anything.

      They can only leave filthy loads … pleasing the gallery people.

        AZ Sama, do not forget that Gaddafi was revered by many Libyans. Getting him Killed like a dog was one of the worst and unpardonable crimes committed by the Western powers in the recent past – on par with the killing of Patrice Lumumba by the CIA.. Sama, surely, you do not want that to happen to Mara or anybody else. I do not see the point in mentioning this heinous murder when you speak about Mara. Please be more sensible and merciful. What we want is justice, even if comes from a block chain – not another crime to avenge a crime.

        What I suggest is that we do things in a civilized humane manner. Of course having lived half your life among the German Nazis, you may have been infected by the germ of revenge. I can understand that.

          I really dont want jungle law or Rajpapakshe law to work on Rajpakashes. Gone are the days where the lanken citizens faced it. Today we have been introduced civilized world.
          All i WANT is justice … Even today, justice not yet served. I really dont know where you … we in Europe enjoy law and order as written in the books.

          All I want is Thadjudeen parents to feel that the justice is served.
          All I want is Lasantha and his family to feel that the justice served.
          All I want is Gotta to be punished if found guilty for Rathupaswala or Nilpaswala few innocient were killed out upon the trigger of Wadakaya Gota.

          FYI; My genetic composition is XY, please dont call me a woman. SAMA is a typical sinhala name. I know there are enough housemaids in ME countries, you may be round the clock with them as is the case with many men down there. But I am MALE.

          For your note, German nazis are better than Rajapakshes in some contexts.

            Sorry Sama. Are you sure you are not a female? May be your Alzheimer has made you forget of what sex you really are. Anyway, I will consider you to be a male hereafter.

            Regarding the points above I am 100% with you. Those are the things we should never forget. The things we should work for and somehow achieve or die trying.

            Why do you guys spell Lankans as Lankens? And Rajapakshas as Rajapakshes? To a clever detective like me it reveals you and all other Avatars as something that I suspected you to be all along. Tamils masquerading as Sinhalese. I have nothing against Tamils. If you take my best 10 friends, 6 of them are Tamils including numero UNO. What I am against is the masquerade.

            And if that is the case, you loose all credibility, as far as I am concerned. Tamils are my friends but everyone of them has a anti Sinhala agenda. That is their right. But as I said I am against the masquerade.

              Is it right to say, all germans are racial ?

              Is it right to say, all English men are brutal ?

                I did not generalize and say that Tamils masquerade. Let me be specific. Every Tamil that I know of has an Anti Sinhala agenda. That is the generalization I made and I stick with that.

                Perhaps due to your condition (AZ) you have forgotten your roots and genuinely think that you are a Sinhalese. Being in the medical field, surely you know that can happen. But your style of writing, the spelling and the tone of the writing all points to Tamil origins. Not only Tamil but watery Tamil origins. You know what I mean?

                  Besides, I dont mind me being tamils or sinhala, what matters is I know where the failure lies in our people.

                  Now come to attack me for my writing style, while being on the tram or flight or trains only I get the chance to add my thoughts to CT.
                  But i continue to do so, since I am born anti against extremists.

                  My style of writing is to attack extremists or stupid people of your nature, whenever whereever I see them. There, I have practised it for that long on. To tell you, I got to know tamils at my Peradeniya days. Then in Europe. I love them, They love me too. But not everyone. That is also common to any nationality right ? But what I notice is, be them in ME or Europe, tamils have improved their life styles than our people. Ours have always been busy the way you give it. Meaning – attacking the other looking down upon sometimes thinking that our race is above any other races. So primitive. All in all, no point of exchanging with you Mr: get well soon and get back to us.We love you, if you would return clean, non-abusive, non devious minded

                  Pissu Edda,

                  I use the name other commentators call you – quite rightly so. “Every Tamil that I know has an-anti Sinhala Agenda” can only come from a warped mind. It is totally wrong. I agree both communities look at each other with suspicion and dislike now – as opposed to what it was in the pre-1950s. Low level politicians and Buddhist priests are responsible for that. But the worm is turning. Even the once anti-Tamil Madulwewe Sobitha Hamuduruwo changed latterly – just before he unfortunately passed away. Or was he “killed” by the Medamulana mafia?
                  Leaders of both communities are beginning to feel while they quarrelled others, both within and outside the country, took advantage – and the country is going to the dumps. Happily, things are beginning to change.

                  BTW – By all means keep commenting – as you apparently want to. But, man, write sense and think before you go to print. Remember some of us suffer the misfortune of having to read all what you write before concluding at the end most of it is zilch. Have some sympathy for the time and consideration of others, please.

                    As you have called me Pissu Edda I think I have the right to call you what I like. but I will not do so because that will bias you further against me. What I said is that all the Tamils ( (meaning of course Sri Lankan Tamils) that I know (correction – acquainted with) have an anti Sinhala agenda. But that does not mean all Tamils do, because I have been acquainted with roughly only about 50 Tamils. I know that it is not fair or logical to conclude that it applies to all Tamils, even all Sri Lankan Tamils..

                    After coming to the ME, I have come to know many Indian Tamils, who have been excellent people and they have all become our family friends. I like them and trust them much more than the Sinhalese here.

                    Coming back to SL Tamils that I am acquainted with, I must say they too are great people. As I said, the three best and hence most trustworthy friends I had in SL before I came here to ME are Jaffna Tamils. But once they leave Sri Lanka things change. They will claim anything, do anything to get asylum status.

                    Someone once said during the Eelam war period, not all Tamils are suicide bombers – but all suicide bombers happen to be Tamils.

                      Dear Mr. Edwin Rodrigo

                      In response to yours, allow me to make a few brief comments.

                      1. I am pleased you agree with the crux of my comments
                      in response to your earlier comments. BTW, “Tamils do not have an anti-Sinhala agenda” My gut feeling is the mutual Sinhala-Tamil equation is strained – particularly in the 1980-2010 period. But, I suspect, it will improve – more so because for both communities to live in peace and reach economic progress, they will have to engage in much give-and-take. Besides, they will realise, sooner than later their adversorial relationship has only endangered the integrity (physical and otherwise) of the country and its future.

                      2. As to the meaning of the monicker I have chosen your Tamil friends, both SL and India, will be able to help.

                      3. It was the late senior lawyer S.L. Gunasekera – political maverick and pseudo-nationalist – who mischievously and irresponsibly said “all Tigers are Tamils. Therefore, all Tamils are tigers” What a foolish analogy!

                      Compliments of the Season.

                    <bWhat is in a Name? Vananagamudi, I like you. It is not because you sort of registered me under a nick name that I like very much – Pissu Edda – but because you don’t pretend to be a bogus Sinhalese in exile EU like SAMA. Not only is SAMA pretending to be a Radala Sinhala but she pretends to be a man now. She is not quite sure about that and has to look down to convince from time to time. It is the AZ silly!

                    But you don’t have to do that,do you.You are proud to be a Tamil Brahmin and I respect you for that. I am interested in knowing what your name means. I know that the Tamils have the custom of combining dafren dafren parts of their names to make up dafren dafren long names like Littleisimonfromberlin. It could be a disguise. These terrorists have to take a lot of precautions to escape detection. Having a long name is a sure sign of a Nazi or a Tamil. We had a Tamil guy called Thedchanamoorthipakyalingam in our Senior batch. That really makes Littlesomethingfromdresden’s one really little, does it not?

                      Sad to see you seem to have all along been busy with my genetics. I dont need to come to you with aDNA test proving you I am sinhalese.? Why you keep busy with my origin ? Anyways, your repeated comments bother me that much to this date… Just now only I happened to read this comment.
                      I keep busy with my own work and that may be the reason me to have not read this before.
                      I am originally from Galle but I hav enot lived there for the few decades.
                      I dont mind ,me being identified as a tamil, just becuase you racists of funny nature woudl always feel anyone that would bear impartial thoughts should necessarily be tamils. This is very typical to many sinhalese known to me after all if they are in your age group Edwin the most abusive man in CT forum:

                      Your problem should be pathological. We could surely heal you, if a meeting would have been arranged.
                      I MAY BE TRAVELLING TO SL at the end of Feb or little earlier. So during my stopover, we can meet us for a tea in Quatar are you ready Edwin Mahaththaya ?
                      Why you behave so silly ? not going with your age group ? Is that lack of knowledge or genetics ?
                      I also have burgher, muslim and tamil friends, I would not behave the way you have been used to. What is your problem actually ? I have met sinhalese in London, they behaved themselves as if they got to know tamils for the first time, at the time, one of the sinhala speaking tamil spoke to us without accent. At Pera, we had good friends that spoke every good sinhala..

                      Dont let me discuss about this again. All the very best

                      Enjoy your holidays ! Try to be a human than a permament racist.. that can help you and the others too.

                    Thanks. There is a temporary cessation of hostilities between me and the gin band because tomorrow is Xmas. So I thought that I will declare a ceasefire and contemplate about my chat with you all. Your tone changes everything. people like Sama jump the gun and blame me for everything calling me a racist etc.

                    Your last comment could be a starting point for new dialogue. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

                    Vananngamudi,

                    you may be right, late rev. Sobitha Thero should have been killed by Medamulana Mafia…

                    He is the only person I thought could help in the crisis the nation had been fallen into.. .. unfortunately, he passed away that way. .. I think – had he been alive today, he would have raised if the higher criminals would ever habeen punished by prevailing laws in the country.

              Edwin be real,

              I really dont know why I am used to write LANKEN or LANKAN… anyways, these are just tiny things. Even doctoral theses contain more such errors even after repeated proof readings.

              Please try to think bit in a broader manner. It is no easy to implement anything back in our home country. The reason current Duo has failed to succeed as thought prior to get elected – is because people are not knowlegeable enough about goods and bads.
              Here, they should be well trained through awarness programms of Yatharuppa nature, then only their prion filled heads would turn to positive thinking. Ours have been a soceity, even wrongful info would go viral, if they woudl have been added in a lyric manner.
              Latter was made instrumental by Rajapakshe propagandists to brainwash the people. Vehicle they used there was the highly abusive mouth piece of Rajapakshe and Wimal Buruwanse.
              Else, please be real Mr Rodrigo, why should OVER 300 000 voters coming from WP to have voted for stupid men electing them into parliament ?

              I love this particular program -Yatharuppa telecasted by SLTV weekly, there, I got to know many would not want to go out established thinking.

                Spelling Bee: Sama, don’t be so upset about your spelling. Lankan is a Sinhala word converted in to an English style word. You may even call it a Thuppahi word. The problem however is that, all the Avatars also write in the same way. Burampisingho, Loku Burampi, Podi Burampi, Samuel, Sam, Dan, Leela, Leelagemalli, Littleberlin the whole gin band (sorry if I left out any) writes the same way. Mathematically, the probability of so many ‘Sinhalese’ living in EU making the same mistake all the time is so miniscule that it can be considered as practically impossible. For a logical person like me it is bothering.

                Thanks for the tip on Yatharuppa. I will download and see it in the weekend.

                Coming back to your hatred for MR, if my doubts are well founded and you are Tamils then you have good reason to hate MR because the greatest thing he did (together with SF and many others) was to completely eradicate the most brutal terrorism the world ahs ever seen, from SL. Of course as Tamils you will not see it that way. But I do.

                If you call that racism. So be it. I don’t care.

                Necrophilia : You called me a Naki Manamalaya and then apologized. There is no need to apologize. You know, I think I like that.

                Furthermore what you called me is nothing compared to what the Kalaveddah called me – someone suffering from necrophilia. Now, that is really a big insult. Especially because I never said any thing to him here.

                But then I do understand. The Kalaveddah is just an animal. He is much lower on the ladder of evolution compred to humans. It is not expected from a lowly animal like him.

              JUST ATTACK ANYONE AS YOUR TONGUE ALLOWS, that is your typical nature. That is still in the mind sets of CT readers. Please watch out !

              Not for the current comments, they all know how you added your thoughts harming almost everyone, no matter even you yourself would not agree with some of them.

              I looked down and checked, if I am male or female.

              Almost everything to prove I am male is there. I really dont kno why you bother me to be male or female. That is where I have to therapeutize.

              As a sexagenarian, I thought you would bring more wiser comments. ANyways, I love you are back. At least once in a while yours sound fine. That I dont want to miss for any reasons.

              If not today, you will sense it shortyl before your last breath. – I wish for the sake of the masses that have been made permament fools in the country

              Happy holidays to your Mr Rodrigo. I know you are in an open prison where no human rights are held valuble. ANYWAYS, enjoy your holidays.
              Thanks and seasonal greetings from

                Grimm’s Fairy Tales Sama, If you have to check between your legs for that then the problem is between your ears. You are losing brain cells faster than MR is spending Rupees for the next election. Read my lips – It is AZ. AZ is a terribly debilitating disease. Later you will even forget where to look to check your sex. For example, your comment on 21 December may look something like this:

                All I want is just… what’s it … oh yeah, Just Burampi to serve my dinner before 8 AM … instead of breaking my fast.. as who is it? yeah Burana Appu says. As if I have been fasting (Ha! Ha!). I am not a Muslim and even if I were, it is not Ramadhan! Pissu Edda may be fasting, but not Maaa…Maaa…- Saa -Saa – Samavenna, I mean it is me. I really don’t know where you … I mean we in Tamil Nadu enjoy law and – what is that other thing? – Orders of Nazi Party as written in Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Sorry …. Hitler’s Fairy Tales.

      you mean Prabhakaran?

        Sach,
        Pirabhakaran did not sell any part of this island to China or India or USA. He did not rob the public money to build up his family kingdom. Whole of his family sacrificed their lives for the community and the land he loved and lived unlike most of the Rajapakse family ran away from this land. None of Pirabharan’s family involved in rape and murder of any one unlike your boss’s kids did and doing now. I know you are very happy about the murder of that innocent rugby player Wasim?

          Ajith,

          Their was no land that was owned by Prabhakaran to be sold. He was just a military dictator who sent thousands of children to battlefield why his children were having every luxuries of the world in foreign countries. And you still say Prabha was good? Do you know how many Tamil girls got raped in LTTE custody? Do you know how many pedophiles where there in LTTE?

            Shenal,
            If I say you raped all of your sisters, and hundreds of your friends it could be true. Is it your sister or wife raped by LTTE? If so, can you give that evidence? Even your military leaders accept that Pirabakaran is good and there is no accusation about rape by LTTE.
            Sach
            Have you forgotten that Rajapakse lost elections held after the end of war because he robbed the nation.

    This UNP stooge is crying rajapaksa destroyed SLFP. Rajapaksa was the BEST political manipulator SL ever saw and that is why we won the war. Read that Kandaiya fellow’s crying tribute to MR’s achievement.
    There is a reason even DBSJ calls MR, the Medamulana machiavelli

          I like him but his verbal attacks on Nazis and asylum seekers or about his IQ etc are beyond my taste. If anybody would stand against his thoughts, he shoudl be a nazist, or asylum seeker in Germany or UK. oR even a tamil.

          Hope lanken housemaids living in EUROPE may have done good to him cleaning his soul.

            once a wild boar would never change behaving ….

            That we are all know when looking at what he has been adding to this page.

            He is an another sinhala chaunist/extremist/ who should have been coming from Mathugama area, Rodrigos accortng my analyses are lower class buggers, just that may be the reason him to make efforts to be above the others.
            He is said to have just got through his degree at pera, being the last to get the qualification that way.
            The kind of men would not have space than hang on the interllectuals like Prof. KD.
            Please do some study on the archives, bugger attacked even anyone on this chat ais if he is fallen from ALIPUKEN.

              Burampisincho – The Full Option Idiot : Is this wild boar from Lanken Alipiken or Lankan Alipukan? Burana Singho, I show your comment to my Malayalee friend. Using his Malayalee English, which is quite similar to your Thamil English in accent and grammar, he says “this man idiot. There are dafren dafren type of idiots. This man full option idiot. He says he is doing analyses. What analyses, may I ask? Just show only. He says you trying to be above others. With this kind of full option idiot, no need to try. Even a monkey riding a bull can be above this man.

              Then he says, “Namo Siva, is what this guy say true? You really failed? Why lie to us?

              Whether the Malayalee likes it or not, I have the job now. He was trying to get me replaced by some Malayalee. I told him, to replace me you will need 20 Malayalees. He is now searching for 20.

          Because he is a self confessed practicing necrophilia.

            Native,

            Unfortuanately, he is made so. He would attack anyone as his tongues allows. But anyway, let hope he woul dnot become that worse as had been before.

            I like the guy and some thoughts being added by him, but I hate if he would start sinhala race above others.
            I always hate our elders that behaved so. I even called my father ” a Radalaya” and left home unitl entire family had to find me somewhere in Colombo.

            Problem is similar to that of Dayan Jayathilaka. Edwin too seems to be not knowing well what he has been uttering to this page.
            Anyone that would stand against racisms, extremism or those who support them, Edwin would easily attack even brand as ” tamils”. He himself works in his field (toilet Engineering) with tamils and other Hindians.

    If Rajapakse is standing tall and fat to-day it is due to yahapalanaya government in general and Ranil in particular. The promised action against the Rajapakses and their government against corruption as promised by Ranil and Mithripala never saw the light of the day. Instead the Present Government went a few steps further and proved that they are much more capable than the previous government in executing ‘great robberies’. Pot cannot call the kettle black ( Incidentally both are not Electric)

    Writer is bias on that MR line of SLFP politics, whom it concern that been bail out entire country from clutches of Tamil LTTE terrorism killing field in 2009 May 19th that credit should goes to MR-leadership. It was MR initiated just war lunch against Tamil terrorism by National Democratic forces led by MR leadership of SLFP.

    The defeated of Tamil Terrorism by Win of just cause of struggle while that protected and enrich Democracy in 2009 May 19 was great achievement of order of Democracy in only Sri lanka; it has been widely impact governances of democracy to whole South Asian region.

    Do not under-estimated that MR role of Democracy in whole region and wrongfully that misinterpreted values of Democracy of Globally upheld by MR has been played positive role, indeed that MR factor is which undeniable factor which an undermined by writer.

    The People of world that must learn to talk on about truth of history not that make unnecessary allegation against their political ideologies by their own Racial and Ethnic interest background other whom do not that agreed on different interest of classes, religion and racial roots.

    In fact SLFP has most prosper era under MR ruling alliance since 2005 to 2015. The country, nation and People of all Sri Lankan has been enjoy peace and development during MR era was indelible fact in modern political history since 1948.

    Sama, see how ridiculous the stand of the EU gin band is. I just express my personal opinion that MR has charisma. May be I am wrong. But many in SL feel that way. When I say that I do not mean that he is a saint. I agree that he is big time crook, a murderer and many other bad things.

    You guys attack me and say that I am racist, call me a necrophiliac. As I said dafren dafren people have dafren dafren opinions. There is no need to insult, fight or jump and down. Yes I suspect that you are Tamils. Is that an insult? If you think so, then you are the racists.

    Perhaps your reaction comes from the fact that I blew your cover of pretending to be Sinhalese living in EU.

    I have some good news for Sama,sankaraNOlingam,Tamil vedda,mama sinhalaya, and other smelly representatives of a detested,despised, and dejected community.
    Our hero Prabakaran has come out of hibernation. Although those Rajafuckshas say that they destroyed him, we all knew that he was indestructible. He will make an appearance that will send shivers up the spine of spineless Sira and Batalandaya. We Tamils will show that we are not thosai munching cowards. Let this be a warning we are on the warpath F….k the Sinhalyas, F…k them all, the long,the short and the tall.
