    Shanika Somatilaka,

    If the rich countries do not have COVID- 19, Tsunami Hora could have earned a new title Corona-19-Hora, now that he is the PM and his brother the President.

      Dear Amarasiri and Native Vedda,
      .
      I wonder why it is that you have not commented at all on this article:
      .
      https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/challenging-three-cheating-thomian-pharisees-and-not-doing-it-from-behind/
      .
      The Royal-Thomian was played for three days and ended today in the most boring draw. Should they have played the match at all?
      .
      Fahim Knight,
      .
      How sincere and consistent are you?

      .
      About two years ago, you were struggling to defend the reputation of Freemasons.. I cam to your assistance. You went to great lengths to obtain my e-mail address, and then, my telephone numbers. Thereafter I facilitated a 15-minute telephone chat with my Belgian neighbour who is probably the man best versed in Freemasonry in Sri Lanka. The highest rank in Freemasonry in Sri Lanka is District Grandmaster. My friend had been the Grandmaster of the Czech Republic and is a member of several lodges in Sr Lanka. After his conversation with you, he announced to me that you are a fraud because you had been unable to name a single Lodge of which you are a member. He told me that you seemed to have done some Freemasonry in Singapore.

        Dear Sinhala Man,

        Thanks for pointing the link. Amarasiri is selective, and the article was too local, even though it shows the general malaise and corruption in the country . When a tree falls in the woods, only those trees around are affected.

        Were there any monks and prostrating imbeciles involved? Would it have made a difference? Did anybody get the COVID-19 by kissing? Are the alter boys safe? ……….,

          Dear Amarasiri,
          .
          Instead of monks, there are three Anglican clerics. Two priests, but also a Bishop to boot.
          .
          I told the Police that just as much as Gnansara and Ampitiye Sumanaratne are destroying the Dharma, so are those three destroying Christ’s message.
          .
          Choir boys? – you’ve missed the horrendous comments on Jeevan Hoole’s article. It’s the comments that you must look at – not the article itself:
          .
          https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/st-johns-college-new-principal-unity-only-in-diversity/
          .
          Go to about the 16th comment there – by a teacher who has posted his story in five parts. The perpetrating priest is no longer the Principal, but remains a Priest!

          .
          There is a comment by a guy called “Moses Rajendran” possibly a real name, much lower down, which you must not miss, although not so graphic:
          .

          “The Bishop himself is accused of wrong relations with his driver and the church of getting rid of the driver with a huge severance pay. In a court case upcountry involving my church an affidavit says the Bishop spent a night with his driver in the church owned house

          The church needs to issue a statement if we are to be faithful to this church. I remain a member but shaky.”
          .
          I will devote tomorrow to bringing all that to the notice of readers. I’m sure that your shining a light there [let it be a brief excursion only] will answer your critics who say that you atttack only Buddhist monks.

            “Are the alter boys safe? ……….,”‘

            Thanks for your info. Besides the alter boys, looks like even the drivers are not safe. Being a Christian school, the priests had exclusivity, and therefore “protected” from the monks.

            Of course we are NOT talking about the COVID-19 virus, that is very egalitarian,

            Isolation, own immune system, antivirals and finally a vaccine buythe virologists, biologists and the scientists, will save us, not the monks, priests and the Ulama.

            The monks, priests and the Ulama, can give the last rights after the victim is dead, and console the living.

        Hey (Single) sinhala x man.
        What is it with you ?
        Off his head with a sword at everyone sometime and sometimes endless praise ?

        First your disgusting broken record of St.Thomas , who the hell cares about your St Thomas when we have more important issues to deal with?

        First you were full of praise of This chap Fahim Knight and now you have declared him fraud .

        Then your long bedtime stories bombarding the entire forum with your crap of bombastic english .
        You think people have the time to waste reading your crap and commenting ?.
        Why do you beg people to comment ?
        You are such a Sad sack…
        Reading your comments is like bombay looking -Kolkata going.
        You are pathetic and I am sure you are suffering from HPD (Histrionic personality disorder)

      PART TWO

      .
      Leading upto the Presidential Elections,

      we had many interesting chats, initiated from my Dialog phone. You were enthusiastically supporting Nagananda Kodituwakku, and thereafter strategic voting using the system of Preferences. You were going to give your first vote to AKD of the JVP , and thereafter to Sajith. Once the results of the election were known, you suddenly started getting re-obsessed with Constitution-making. After I pointed out the empirical problems inherent in making such changes. We were speaking to each other on the phone, but now I find that my Dialog number has been blocked by you.
      .
      Now I find that you are fawning before the Rajapaksas, and writing only politicaly “safe things” . Please explain yourself. If not you come through as a hypocrite!
      .
      Please contrast with how some regular commenters like Leelagemalli, Desperate Sinhalaya, and Plato, enthusiastically speak of my consistency and sincerity.
      .
      /b>Can the same bes said of you?

        Airing your private laundry in public??? Can see why someone might block even a seemingly nice man like you! Or the block itself is perceived rather than reality; other hiccups or technical glitches are possible.
        Hope you all sort things out and resolve any grievance.

          Dear Peace,
          .
          No, what I said wasn’t as unfounded as what you feel it was. I had taken account of glitches. I’d sent Fahim a number of e-mails about the blocked phones.
          .
          By looking at the way certain sections of my phone are laid out, I can see how easy it is for one to accidentally block another person. I did take that into account, and I discussed it with my Belgian friend who is more amazing a character than you’d ever imagine.
          .
          I hope my restrained and balanced response to you is re-assuring.

          Dear Peace,
          .
          Having posted the response to you, I’ve checked my e-mails. It is far more difficult to check Fahim’s CT comments, but I had made a mental note of certain inconsistencies. I think that I gently drew attention to some veerings by him – again difficult to check.
          .
          This is the problem with so many pseudonyms, and not really knowing what the other guy is about. In Fahim’s case, I had got beyond that – at his earnest request. As a result of your rapping my knuckles, you have, for the time being, acquired a more rounded character. But I may forget this exchange between us. That is how limited a guy may get as he gets as old as I am.
          .
          And so, au revoir, my dear Peace.

          .

            I do feel terrible having posted a knuckle rapping as you referred to it. My sincere apologies for not keeping my nose out of your business. Certainly I can empathize with your reaction to questionable trustworthiness.
            Sending you best wishes and regards!

      Amarasiri,
      BP Mahinda Led groups make every effort to mislead the very same audience again. See not even 1% of 100-day of former govt is achieved by Gotler led current day govt. But black out of local media – make them governing only in favour of them. Self glorifications are in the air… Gota did that… Mahinda did this bla bla.
      .
      But anyone with a bird’s brain would raise the question

      1) As to why the chinese tourists or nationals entering the country are not subjected to undergo QUARATINE treatment while anyone coming from Italy, Korea and Iran or other countries have no other choice but to take part in that step.
      :
      2)And a mask to cover mouth and nose would cost that much,… but yet today there are no such masks readily available for buying of any one who goes to market…?
      They talk high.. even that king ballige putha.. criticise almsot everything to the very same .. stupid audience… that would not be withotu his excreta but…. but they have faield to achieve the least … today. ?

      3) They Gotler believes, today that they are the front runners to have protected own community getting caught by COVID -19 but as you know … there are various factors other than blocking entering the country… paly a role… in this regard…. i think lanken health ministry or other responsible ones did not lot less regarding .. corona pandemic. – this proves everything about BPs that grabed the power by misleading the stupid masses of the nation.

      See, how the current govt acts today ! They just cheat the nation, as if they would do the best in terms of corona-control. but not many among the chinese arrivals, reported to have controlled enough. This is too risky since the chinese are the core issues regarding corona virus.
      Even election commissioner stresses that the election could be held once the people are corona-free. But Rajaakshe try to fish in the muddy water and ignoring the danger of the people being caught by deadly corona pandemic.
      srilankens are mostly born as buddhists as you and I. Many of them today, dont care about anything, but have become just buddhagama followers. We are compelled to believe that srilanken-buddhagama is in compiance with the true teachings of lord buddha. From the misbehaviour of majority of buddhist monks, one would not feel that they are real good buddhists. They have just become followers of the srilanken-buddhagama. Just study the videos being spread by some so called buddhagama-followers regarding day today activities. They dont even use civilized sinhala language when they talk about their fellow people. For some reasons, sinhala people are made to believe that they should be kept above the law prevailing inthe country. Even among corona surveillance process, they behave themselves so violently. Paradoxially, they are reported to work in Italy or Korea. If they would behave the manner they do in Srilanka in such countries, they would have been arrested on the spot. This is so absurd. This has lot do with lanken sinhala race.

      Shanika Somatilaka,

      Looks like, the brother of the Tsunami Hora is now trying to appease imbecile students and imbecile administrators with mean measured IQ 79, as a strategy to contain the COVID-19 virus.

      Is he the President or just a wimp, who gets others to do the killing for him, including COVID—19.

      Pathetic!

      Commenting on the Royal-Thomian cricket encounter, where a First Officer of SriLankan Airlines who was found positive for the virus has attended, President Rajapaksa today said he asked the organisers not to go ahead with the cricket match.

      He said a decision was taken to suspend the big match between the two schools but he allowed it to continue following the requests of the students and the school administration. “They insisted to go ahead with the match,” he said.

      “The result was a virus infected First Officer of SriLankan Airlines attending the cricket encounter. Today, some of the SriLankan Airlines staff members have been asked to undergo the self-quarantine process,” he said.

    Corona is a big distraction from a lot of structural crisis in the Global economy and of course for the US citizen Rajapaksa brothers who are up to their years in corrupt deals a good excuse to distract from regime failures and monumental corruption and their deals with US puppet Bondscam Ranil and co. with elections round the corner..
    As the evidence that Corona is a bio-weapon unleashed first against China’s people and economy to cause de-globalization, sink the rise of Asian economies and make “America great again” mounts, the media hype and unethical WHO is whipping up global hysteria to cover up Trumplands mounting crimes against humanity which everyone knows today as they are clearly exposed.

    The US hybrid war machine with its, CIA and Saudi owned ISIL “terror” narrative to maintain 800 military bases all over the world and sell billions $$$ weaponry and and deep state military, business, intelligence, entertainment industrial complex, that pilot tests the plots and narratives of disaster capitalism is new exposed and US-EU hegemony that has enabled looting of the GLobal South in the name of (fake) development is finished.

    Dear Readers,
    Please advice family and friends not to visit IDH for Corana testing , If you are sure you have not come in contact with anyone who are from High risk countries or if you have not travelled recently .

    I regret to state as this is the first time we are facing such a virus , I found the staff and others in the clinic completely unprepared and seems to not have any experience and the place is in a chaos.

    The male attendent had been very aggressive to people .

    So just visit your usaul GP or Physician consultant if you expeirence any symtoms , they could be a normal flue or chronic sinussitis.

    Its highly risky for a person who have never come in contact with any high risk person or have not visited any high risk countries to visit The IDH Coranavirus Screening clinic.
    The staff are so unprepared and are cluless ., The doctor does not have even basic geography knowledge and zero English and The Tourist are deeply grieved .

    A healthy person is at risk.
    Well experience doctors and nurses are needed desperately at the IDH clinic and it would be good to send a team to Singapore for some short training as they are well organized and this is the 2nd expeirence

    This is need maximum attention right away

      A good reply.
      I agree with you Ajay .I am very upset with this cartoon.
      V.insensitive .
      People are suffering and dying everywhere and I think its improper and not funny at all .
      I pray discreetly in my own way to heal the whole world from this terrible plague and also to prevent it entering our Country .
      We are in no situation to handle it God forbid.
      Already a number of our people( Sri lankans) are suffering from various illnesses.
      It was heart breaking for me to see number of them suffering from kidney illness in a certain gov Hospital priv ward, I really appreciate the noble service the entire staff is doing there , its not easy to be a nightingale , a male attendent or a doctor .its almost divine .. one has to be above human , and almost an Angle of mercy.
      I hope a day will come soon where Sri lankans from all communities will unite and start a medical trust to help people who can not afford .
      One midleage man said he has sold everything , from Car to bike and needs Rs.60, 000 pm only for his oral medicines.
      How much we are neglecting our own people*( it does not matter anymore for me which commuity, they are from, they are Our people Sri Lankans and most of all Humans) .if each of us contribute to a medical trust Rs 1.00 a day we can easily collect atleast Rs.10 million a day.
      Someone please give it a thought .
      Humanity matters above everything else .we need to learn to love and give rather than judge and complaint .

        Fahim Knight ,

        You are talking almost like a priest ! Not really bad but the truth is
        quite nauseous . The whole social fabric is in chaos , misled , torn
        into pieces and sometimes feel like beyond repair ! All we do is
        having helpless hopes based on false beliefs and unreal expectations .
        You say about divine doctors and angel nurses , how many of them ?
        Let’s say generously , ten percent or twenty percent of them ! And the
        rest of eighty percent ? It is truly a wonderful thing to have a free
        health care in the country but what is the use if the service is not fully
        operational with due respect and honour to its masters who are the
        general public ? Judge and complain exist because Love and give is
        not taught and so not learnt ! Just a few generations before Love and
        give or care was in the blood and didn’t need learning but now , all that
        systematically destroyed , maybe never to return !

        Ajay, Fahim, it’s a natural reaction for people to laugh at terrifying events. Jokes often try to to take something frightening and make it seem harmless. They lighten the mood and strengthen people’s ability to cope. There were many jokes circulating during the war, even when Colombo was being bombed from the air.
        .

    A very apt cartoon. Its unbelievable how this man survived to become the president after swindling 80M of money sent for tsunami relief. It is unbelievable how the sangha, the media and the people of this country yet cajole and placate him. Its unbelievable how the Supreme Court ruled that his rights were violated by the police. Its unbelievable that the court ordered the IGP and others to pay him compensation amounting to Rs 100,000 each. It is unbelievable that the government also was ordered to pay him Rs 200,000 as compensation. Its unbelievable that the CJ who sat on the bench later apologized to the people for his corrupt decision to clear Sri Lanka’s Houdini of allegations of misappropriation of Tsunami funds.

        Numerous ethics books & epics in many languages are talking about the purpose of living. The essence of these talks is to organize the earthly life and keep humanities away from “Living by any means”. In other words,” it is a Sharia they all are within themselves.” And the inverse of that also is true; that is, all natural laws based law and order disciplines which are intended to organize human life are religions in their manner of having them implemented. Prejudice! That is all what it is. The justice delivered by of any of the law & order authority is only a demonstration of the status of the recipient. All who have received judgements are a kind of Hindu Brahmins only, who are, by God’s Law, his favorites. Equality of the victim is only hypocrisy. All religions are telling that God bend his justice to favor those all who respects his highness and praise his majesty. Thus Carrot and Cane is what they all (religions and law and order authorities) sow and that all what they harvest and grant to their devotees (rather citizens). But whether is” Buddha right or Christ right of Allah right or Shiva right”, doesn’t matter. The reason for living here is only to embrace death. The true reasons we all are still living here is because we all are looking for easy death, not torturous, feeling no body pain (or by the hope of having to find a way to dodge the death). When the death itself come to us, we all would have exhaust our ways and means of prolong lives or avoiding pain and we die by torturous pain, a life time disappointment.
        That man shut the world out (including UN), while he was staging the genocide on Tamils. That success gave him stamina to plough and bulldoze all three languages Medias and weed the reporters, editors and Cartoonist. But the irony of Westminster based democracy is, still there is somebody to draw and make readers regain their common sense.

      “A very apt cartoon. “

      Isn’t God has made this world with valiant resisters against abusers, left alone imaginative creators?

      There is a story said about how Krishna died after the Mahabharata war. Kandakari cursed Krishna for having killed all Aryans (including her children) in the Hastinapur. “May you Krishna witness the death of your children and your children’s children. And may you die alone in the forest, hunted down like a beast.” She said. But, like Ranil took part in 2018 Coup to overthrow him out of power, Krishna, ( The Lord) was part of the swore on him. He pre planned this way to wipe out Yathavas and then end his drama, by pulling the curtain on him too. Prophets told to people Krishna’s male child would give birth to an iron mace and Krishna & Yathavas will be killed by that iron mace. Yathavas took the iron which the boy gave birth to, and powered and dissolved it in the sea. The waves brought back the power particles to shore and a kind of reed stemmed out of those particles to grow with iron strength and swords like blades (leaves). On the last days of them, all Yathavas went to beach to celebrate a festival; drank too much; fought with each other with the reed blades and wiped them all out. After seeing this, worried by all the Karma he did in his process of cleaning the world, Krishna went and started to meditate under tree. Accidently, without knowing last birth, a Monkey King (Vaali), who was killed by Krishna in his last avatar, threw an arrow which’s tiny tip was made from the leftover of the powdered mace. It fell on hidden Krishna’s leg and he too died. Neither Krishna nor Yathavas could escape from their Karma By powdering an iron mace, which was given to birth to bring an end for all the past sins.

It is unbelievable how the sangha, the media and the people of this country yet cajole and placate him. Its unbelievable how the Supreme Court ruled that his rights were violated by the police. …

      It is unbelievable…….

      It is unbelievable……

      However, it is BELIEVABLE, that the imbeciles, mean IQ 79, prostrates to saffron clad monks, and they have no clue other than claiming that they follow Buddha-Agama, Buddha’s Religion.

      It is believable that they all are morons, who prostate to monks.

      An interesting story how MR, GR, BR and CR father joined SWRD in 1955. Daddy boy use to travel all the way from Hambanthota and come to Colombo to attend the parliamentary secession in the 1950s. He usually stayed at the old MPs boarding house near the old Public Library off Turret road.
      During the lunch breaks Daddy boy never went home or to a “bath kade” near the old Parliament building at Galle-face. Instead he used to go to the subsidised bar at the old Parliament for his usual “liquid lunch”. He usually returns a bit late to the chambers a bit sozzled.
      One day in 1956 he came back from his liquid lunch and noticed SWRD was seated at the opposition benches. Daddy boy in his sozzled status did not know what has happened during his absence. Which was that SWRD crossed over and sat in the opposition benches and subsequently started his own party which was SLFP with his racist mantra “Sangha, Veda, Guru, Govi, and Kamkaru.
      So Daddy boy thought where SWRD was seated was the government benches and went and sat next to him.
      Rest is history!!

    This guy in the cartoon reminds me of the past the one who swindled the 80 M Tsunami money that was donated by the international community for reconstruction work but instead ended up in his bank account. This cartoon character must be hoping that the Corona virus would take a strangle hold in the country so that he can make a fast buck at the expense of the majority Sri Lankan voter who is known to have a low IQ of 79 who will no doubt handover power once again on a platter at the General Elections next month. He is now 80 and knows very well that this could be his last chance to make a fast buck and hoping that the corona virus will not take hold of him before he could enjoy the fruits of being elected Prime Minister once again. Unfortunately the Corona virus has hit the whole world at the same time and the prospect of making more money doesn’t look that good for our future Prime Minister.

    Why talk about Hangbangtota Help Funds? The bloody crooks in the Airport let two infected ones inside and now telling all king Zero Casualty stories. Infected Italians-Lankans are either are friends of the Airport Crooks or took money. Remember, Ex Customs officer, current Slap Party Governor of North, M/s Charles were going after 143 cartoons which came with government approval from America for transhipment? Now the Tamil area quarantine field has become like Rapist Army’s No Fire Zone Killing Field and Tamils are going to face another Mullivaikkal in Batticaloa.

    Have anyone read about the news of students who dodged Corona Viral death, thanking the King? GMOA, Rapist Army and Political crooks are taking just those who went to China for free education into their political game and creating these fake shows. Who are these fake students? How did they get selected for Chinese scholarship? In South Korea less than one percent of the confirmed infected people only faced catastrophe ends by this virus infection. Do you know another Lankawe Weather Matataya PhD, studied in London, says that there was an asteroid fell in china brought these germs. Who are these medical doctors took these non-infected students to the door of death? Where is election commission guy? Why didn’t he stop the letters going to media while the only purpose of writing these letters is to give political advantage to Slap Party? Funny Lankaweyan professionals!

    ‘GR proposes a Covid-19 fund and Modi offers $10m at SAARC Conference’

    There you go Mahinda, always money to be made in this world. But hold on, what about the bastion of democracy and freedom?
    .
    President Trump is attempting to entice a German lab to develop a vaccine exclusively for the US, a German newspaper reported. The newspaper Welt am Sonntag said that Scientists at CureVac, which is working on a vaccine for the novel coronavirus, were offered large sums of money by Trump.

    Helping Hambantota or Helping Re-election, there’s not much difference.

    The Shanika Somatilake bloke suggesting “Sir..shall we start a Helping Corona Fund” is a 2004 X’mas Day boomer.
    The bloke replying “It won’t be easy because rich countries have Corona too..” resembles the founder of the Lankan Culture of Corruption, Nepotism and Impunity. This led to the erosion in Law & Order which in turn led to the formation of SLPP. .

    Anyone is aware of a big match spectator being confirmed with Corona ?
    If its true then , hundreds or more will need to be quarantined
    Our resources ( do we have any ?)
    Down the drain.
    Why couldn’t these guys have not called it off even if the match has begun half way when they got the news ,? if Schools could ve closed why not the match be stopped ?
    If the news is true , bloody hell,
    All these hundreds who went for the match in all their drunken state to the brim would have passed it on to thousands .
    Shows how selfish people in this country are .

    This to translate a thought into words -It’s a well known that the politicians in the major SL parties are in EACH OTHERS POCKETS ie the UNP in the SLFP pocket & viceversa, and BOTH in the Rajapakse party pockets ! The exclusions are perhaps the JVP & Tamil parties. What we the people see is a mirage & a drama played out for the masses- projecting a party in power and a minority in the opposition benches -whilst the fact is that they are BOTH in each other’s pocket for the common benefit to enrich
    themselves! What IF the party system is abolished by Decree , a group of prominent citizens selected and appointed into the two arms of Govt which, I am sure, will satisfy all Citizens regardless of who you are – whether Sinhala,Tamil,Muslim,Burgher etc etc & go back to the yore when we were all so proud to to be
    SRI LANKANS !
    Just a thought – A CRAZY THOUGHT ????????????
