The Curse: Failed & Bankrupt State

By W. Vishnu Gupta

W. Vishnu Gupta

Sri Lanka is a failed state and will remain as such until the People, Media, Judiciary, Politicians, and other State officials act as ostriches with their heads buried in the sand. Furthermore, the country possesses all characteristics of a pariah nation. Increasingly isolated in the international community due to fiscal, economic, social, and justice framework and policies adopted by a few dirtbags holding on to power to rule under a corrupt political machinery. The annual report submitted by the High Commissioner and the Secretary General at Forty-ninth session of the Human Rights Council confirms that “In the last two years, the independence of the judiciary, the Human Rights Commission and other key institutions have been eroded, and democratic space, including for human rights advocacy constricted.” Furthermore, the same report says, “The Sri Lankan state, including successive governments, has consistently failed to prosecute international crimes and serious human rights violations and pursue an effective transitional justice process.Despite the objections and denials made by our Prima-Donnas heading the Government and Foreign Ministry, it is obvious that, HRC has questioned the credibility of the judicial mechanism in the country. Moreover, in addition to the millions living under the poverty line the same report states, since the start of Covid-19 pandemic 500,000 citizens have fallen below the poverty line. The food security of the country is in dire straits, a world bank survey indicates that 44 percent of the households, approximately 9.7 million people are concerned about their daily foods. The scarcity of essential food commodities, never ending queues for rice, gas, cooking oil, gasoline, milk powder and the exorbitant prices of vegetables, meat and eggs proves that majority of Sri Lankans are worried about their food security. Amazingly, 225 charlatans in the legislature have failed to debate this national disaster and arrive at immediate and long-term solutions for the people. The successive governments have failed to fulfill their obligations and duty to ensure that the basic needs (Food/medicine, Clothes and Shelter) of the people are satisfied. The people are sure only about unending misery and untimely deaths, that has been the trend since 1955. Is it “THE CURSE” as some shamans believe?

The Curse

Intolerance of the political leaders of (Ceylon) Sri Lanka since 1955 has been the only CURSE of our state. There is no exception, cumulative effect of Bandaranaikes, JRJ, NMP, PG, PK, SJV, Premadasas, Ranil, Sirisena, Rajapaksas, Wimal, Udaya, Vasu, Hakeem, Rishad, Wigi, Sampanthan, Douglas, Sumanthiran, Rathana, Fonseka, Ranawaka, Dinesh G, and Anura Kumara Dissanayake is the endless curse and it fell on the nation at 3.30 PM March 22nd 1952, with the death of Honorable D.S. Senanayake. Soon after the untimely demise of father of our nation, formally dormant chauvinistic political movements, lead by SWRDB, JRJ, NMP, PG, PK and SJV came into action under different guises, they were wolves in sheep’s clothing. The citizens of the newly independent state at that time were very naïve and made the cardinal mistake of falling into the traps of the chauvinistic political agendas and they were forced to believe in empowering political leadership to redress the grievances. These charlatans duped the nation and advanced warped political theories that were foreign to the gullible masses, their personal schemes to empower the political leaderships, their families and equally vile and corrupt closest circle of friends were well camouflaged.

State vs Political Leadership

It is not a secret that these jingoistic political leaders undermined the noble efforts of Hon. D.S. Senanayake to build the nation by EMPOWERING THE STATE. Chief among them were SWRDB and JRJ and they were preoccupied with EMPOWERING THEMSELVES either by hook or by crook. Sri Lankans until today have not understood what went wrong in the past 72 years. The million-dollar question is why Sri Lanka is a failed and bankrupt state, one of the charlatans (PG)’s son DG vehemently protested in the legislature last week when equally corrupt another MP mentioned Sri Lanka is bankrupt. The entire world knows Sri Lanka is bankrupt and it is increasingly becoming a pariah nation. Unquestionably, Sri Lanka is bankrupt and is a failed state because the people opted or forced to EMPOWER POLITICAL LEADERSHIP by relying on the rhetoric of SWRDB, JRJ, SIRIMA, CHANDRIKA, PREMADASA, MR, Ranil, SIRISENA, GR, and BR. In other words, the bottom line is people have chosen “rule of man” as opposed to rule of law. The constitution developed by Sirima’s government in 1972, JRJ’s concocted constitution in 1978 and subsequent amendments especially the 18th, 19th and 20th were devised to empower the political party, political leadership and hence the “rule of man.” The “rule of man” places responsibilities on one man or woman and the people believe he/she has magical eyes; many brains and he/she is the jack of all trades.

Hence, the answer to the million-dollar question (why Sri Lanka is a failed state and bankrupt) is, the Sri Lankans formerly Ceylonese have failed to “EMPOWER THE STATE”. Hon. D.S. Senanayake wanted to empower the state, but subsequent Charlatan political leaders and their cohorts never wanted to “EMPOWER THE STATE”. It is the undeniable truth, when people choose to empower the state, rule of law will prevail ensuring that power lies in our people. Empowering the state means empowering duly appointed officials that leads to good, corruption free prosperous state under rule of law. However, empowering political leadership leads to dictatorship, corruption, decaying of security, inept judiciary, and declining social values under rule of man.

Despite of his rigid personal characters, Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore did everything to EMPOWER THE STATE, he has categorically rejected the notion of empowering the political leadership. The rule of law prevails in Singapore and because of empowering the state the country is prosperous, corruption free and has become a model society.

In contrary, every major bill passed in the legislature of Sri Lanka are riddled with clauses that undermine the STATE of Sri Lanka. Under the pretext of empowering the state, all political leaders since 1955 starting with SWRDB swindled the masses and enacted various dubious bills and constitutional documents to empower themselves. Objective was to retain power within a chosen circle of families and friends. For instance, laws on Sinhala only, Nationalization of Foreign Companies, Land Reforms, Education Standardization, Ceylon Administrative Service, New constitution of 1972, constitution of 1978, Right to Information Act, 18th ,19th ,20th Constitutional amendments, Sirima-Shasthri pact, and all Presidential Commissions were designed to conceal inefficiency and lack of creativity, veil corruption and thievery and finally to improve electability and to maintain grip on power by a few. All these and other laws passed by the parliament of Sri Lanka has undermined Empowerment of the State but Charlatans in the parliament presented these laws to the people as part and parcel of the democratic instruments. For example, these politicians abolished the independent Ceylon Civil Service that was the backbone of the “STATE” and replaced it with Ceylon Administrative Service (Sri Lanka Administrative Service) which is subject to the influence of the governing political party, today it is under the whims of the President, Prime Minister, or the Minister. They were able to bring quacks and thieves to control the fiscal and monetary management of the state abandoning the trained professionals of the state; N.U .Jayawardene, Nivard Cabraal and Mahendran. Furthermore, unqualified, and untrained friends and family members were appointed to head the foreign missions; Wickrama Weerasooria, Dayan Jayatilake, Udayanga Weeratunga, Amari Wijewardene, Jaliya Wickramasooriya, Milinda Moragoda and many more… and appointment of retired colleagues and friends to the state institutions were meant to undermine the interests of the state but to empower the ruling men and women. 225 men and women currently occupying legislature and those who occupied the same legislature in the past and their masters, many willingly and others unwittingly have been the major force that debunked and obliterated the noble principle of Empowerment of the State.

The STATE is established under rule of law, but the chauvinist political leadership and “rule of man” are established by bigotry, biases, ill gotten money, lies, discrimination, nepotism, intimidation and through corruption. It appears Sri Lankans have been led to believe that empowering Chauvinist Political leadership is better than the Empowerment of the State. Hence the semi-literate and illiterate cohorts and family members were well rewarded leaving the masses in misery, hunger, and despair. They (politicians) were able to enter the legislature and become powerful ministers, enter the law school for night classes, obtain mansions and security contingents, devised and sanctioned a way to earn commissions from development projects and selling of state’s assets, duty free luxury vehicles, retirement perks unheard in the democratic countries, overseas travels, exemptions and immunities not available to the ordinary citizens, state paid medical facilities in Singapore or USA, unconstrained and unlimited availability of food, petrol, cooking gas and electricity and all these loots with no ACCOUNTABILITY for their actions or inactions.

On the other hand, if people empower the STATE, none of the (225 +1) will survive in politics in Sri Lanka, they will not be able to swindle the people and the nation, there will not be any booty for them scrupulously crafted and sanctioned by the legislature. That is the only reason why (225+1) has postponed and rejected the electoral reforms which would allow the first past the post system to elect good men and women as representatives from pre-determined constitutional seats that existed until 1977. Not a single party leader socialist (including the one preaching the virtues of Pol Pot), capitalist, nationalistic, and secessionist chauvinist will agree to revamp the existing electoral system that denies the voters to elect an alternative political leadership to EMPOWER THE STATE. Successive governments and all the politicians without any exception have conspired against the people of Sri Lanka since 1955 to deny every move to EMPOWER THE STATE leading to the predicament witnessed today; A failed and bankrupt country.

    SriLanka is a Failed State Like No Other. In that respect it is unique and should capture the imagination of the rest of the Nation States on this Planet.

      Yes, Desperate time need out of box solutons.
      First, Sri Lanka should send the US citizen Rajapaksa brothers, Basil and Goat, accused by CIA of war crime and who now work for the American Deep State back to Los Angeles. USA.
      Second, Sri Lanka needs to dump the US dollar and De-DOLLARIZE, like El Salvador, rather than devalue the Lankan rupee against the cashing USD – and NOT beggar the people, and enable US to asset strip the country, following “advice” of the IMF Economic Hit Men.
      Lands and Power plants and Agriculture, food and energy security are being sold off to US and Indian Front companies of BlackRock Hedge Fund, like Adanai at the Colombo and Trincommalee Ports.

      Third, Sri Lanka need to look East and needs to stop following the “Experts” and Debt-trap Development “Advice” of the Washington Consensus (IMF, WB and OECD-DAC) and Western Fake Aid Debt trap Donors that have dictated colonial development policies and prevented TRANSFER OF TECHNOLOGY to enable the country to use its massive Ocean and mineral resources.

        Our Great Leader has made his Speech, and, as his habit, takes no responsibility for idiotic decisions. On the other hand, he claims we are now “self-sufficient” in everything he banned. Of course he didn’t talk about the prices.
        Appropriately, this time he is using a background of empty shelves.

          OC who takes responsibility in Lanka ??? not the leaders nor those who elected them. Though it is not perfect, in Western countries,leaders who get elected cannot getaway by blaming Covid or previous governments (though at times it’s obvious) because public will question their election promises / manifesto and the fact person was well aware of the problems when he/she got elected. That is one of the reason, parties are expected to come up with answers how to fix and not blame or give excuses after getting elected. In few cases candidates are questioned and confronted by public and opponents in open debates prior to getting elected. Where as in Lanka all it took was for Rajapaksas to stand in front of dead bodies and promise eternal security and nothing else.

      Chiv,

      We all know it is a failed, dysfunctional and bankrupt state. Thanks for sharing your view years ago. Yet we failed to understand why, where and where the existence of the Nation was threatened. VG has pointed out where and when and who initiated and carried out the sinister plan to undermine our nation. Disempowerment of the state as the reason was rightly identified. We must look for a solution when the cause is identified before it is too late.

        Vipuli, even today many are reluctant to admit we are bankrupt including our good for noting CB governor. In Parliament SLPP goons shout over when ever the word is mentioned, Many articles states we are close to bankruptcy but not yet bankrupt. To me this is as stupid as patient with known heart disease, going to Cardiologist and denying any chest pain and worse, the family members accompanying, too denying it.

    Your article has a cardinal flaw: D S Senanayake started the anti-Tamil racism from the beginning. He disenfranchised the Tamils of the upcountry.

        SJ, most times I disagree with you. But this time I do agree with you quite unfortunately. Majority of the Sinhalese leaders or the general public and the same among the Tamils simply want to co-exist with each other. But unfortunately the racists on both sides are the loud minority who instigate all sorts of hardship in this once beautiful nation always blaming the other. Dr. Karunaratne is a decent man and he cannot survive where the pigs in the parliament roll in their own feces. He will drown and die in their feces. The lankan parliament has become the pen for the hogs to run wild.

      Your comment has a cardinal flaw. The Tamil leaders and the upper caste Tamils helped the Government to disenfranchise the up-country Tamils. Don’t cry crocodile tears for them now as if you ever cared for them. People like you would not even sit at the same table as a tea-plucker.

        Oh my, you are indeed an out-and-out racist. Cannot bear the truth to be told and immediately come here to distort and lie. The only Thamizh leader who voted for this obnoxious law was GG Ponambalam and he and his party were defeated in the next election, because of this. Most Thamizh considered him a traitor and always suspected him of being a Quisling. All other Thamizh voted against this. obnoxious racist bill, that was enacted by the ruling Chingkalla party and voted by a majority of the Chingkalla MPS, other than the left. The vote of one or two Thamizh MPS would not have changed the decision, as the Chingkallams were in the majority and had already planned this, horrible racist decision long before independence but kept it a secret. This was the beginning, making Indian origin estate Thamizxh stateless. After this started the large-scale colonization of Thamizh homeland, starting with Amparai. and Patipallai Aru which was renamed as Gal Oya.

          Which people, you definitely will not sit and eat with them or with a Chingkalla Berewa or a Rodiya. This is why your Mahanayakes from Malwatte and Asgiriya demand only a Kandyan upper-caste Buddhist or failing that a Kandyan upper-caste Christian to be the governor of Central Province and not some low castes and the then SillySena government complied. No Thamizh low or high caste will make such a stupid racist/casteist demand.

      Thiru,
      “The whole lot of Sinhalese leaders were/are racists.”

      It is true that Sinhala leaders disenfranchised the Tamils of the upcountry who were brought to Sinhale, the Land of Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo by colonial rulers as coolies to work in tea plantations. But do not forget that Sinhala leaders and Sinhala Buddhists accommodated Tamils and Muslims from Hindusthan in their country and gave them citizenship with equal rights as with indigenous Sinhalayo. If Sinhala leaders were racists they would not have done that.
      Unfortunately, instead of living peacefully with indigenous Sinhalayo, Tamils who were misled by racist separatist Tamil politicians who wanted to create a separate State for Tamils in Yapanaya resorted to terrorism and massacred Sinhala Buddhists for three decades and ruined the economy of the country.

    In Short, “Spilt Milk”!
    or lost opportunity!!
    In sales jargon ‘Catastrophe’!!!
    When will realisation dawn and the people gain the ‘conviction of the Mind’ to accept the state of Affairs???
    Then and thereafter only, reparations can be effected to reparations with rectitude!!!
    Then will arise the opportunity, to move forward, with chest forward and yearn for recognition as a reputable state in this world!!!
    Are Sri Lankans, made of such ‘stern stuff’ to merit that recognition???
    Certainly convinced they are, as I believe so. Doubt nevertheless leadership material??!!
    Questionable Leadership material be dumped!!
    Not a quality that is providing confidence to achieve the target.
    When that be resolved, hopefully we may see light at end of the tunnel, to head towards an emancipated community, Country/State and Utopia!!!
    Cohesive, Multi-Lingual, Multi-Ethnic, Multi-Cultural, Multi-Religious country, with Tolerance towards all and Malice towards none, in the precepts of Lord Buddha.
    Lets pray, God almighty would bless Lankan to get a leader to empower the people to empower the state and Rule of Law and Order (definitely not “Low and Odour”), enable this country to reach the heights of fame, prominence and splendour in the future, as it did in its glorious past.

      “…as it did in its glorious past.”

      Sinhalayo who are the indigenous people in Sinhale had a glorious past. That was ruined by Dravida invaders from Hindusthan who came from 3rd Century BC, Portuguese, Dutch and British colonizers, Tamil and Muslim terrorists.

    As Mr Gupta has stated, every leader of SL since independence are to be blamed for the lack of progress over the years The incompetence, cronyism & corruption gradually increased with the years but it has been exponential in recent years. It would be interesting to draw up a list of those who can be held directly responsible & publicly named & shamed but the current lot deserve to rounded up & held accountable for crimes against the state, Nuremberg style after the 2nd world war. Will that day ever come or would we knowingly continue to elect yobs & thugs who have blatantly raped the country?

        Regime change mafia told the same story in 2015 to mislead the voters and brought ‘Yahapalana’ Government to power. The outcome was a total disaster; economy was ruined, indebtedness increased, unemployment increased, foreign currency reserves depleted by importing all kinds of rubbish and worst of all Muslims were allowed to carry out terrorist attacks ruining the peace and political stability. Now people in this country are paying the price for the blunders made by ‘Yahapalana’ Government.

    They elected a person that was not even qualified to run a 7 Eleven to run a country because of their racist mindset. Today everyone is suffering and the racist Sinhalese are also complaining like the thief running with the people looking for the thief.

      6.9 million people who elected a racist war criminal, to complete his racist agenda now must be very happy. I hope they have now learned a good lesson, that racism and marginalization of a large section of a country’s population in the name of ethnicity, language, and religion does not work. Germany learned this the hard way in the 194os.

        Not only Thamizh countryside in the Vanni and Jaffna is beautiful, the entire country of ours is beautiful. What is UGLY in our motherland is the sitting (225 +1) in the parliament, their families and their cohorts. 6.9 Million was duped by the person and persons referred by you. The division among our people was the the great plan of the conspirators of the state, including every current and past politicians of Ceylon (Sri Lanka).

      “They elected a person that was not even qualified to run a 7 Eleven to run a country because of their racist mindset.”

      If that was the case how did Gota win the war single-handedly?
      Magulam fame Kamala also claimed to have single- handedly won the war so did Shavendra and 15,000 generals.
      People have forgotten Velupillai Prabaharan who actually won the war for the clan.

        I liked his story. Interesting . Does it have a relationship to the president and his speech? You be the judge.

          .
          U are spot on/ stupid man sitting as the president was once not aware of the total number of the schools in slanka/ this reminded me of sinhala lessons of a primary school. He also had questioned about palm trees just pointing at a kesel plant/ man behaves today like a clown whose election came into being through fake public perception.
          .
          Press men did nt even correct it and treated to the manner they did it with fabricated fairy tales such as ” water snake emerged from Kelaniya river carried fake relics to Kelaniya temple shortly before Nandasena s election “.

      Bert,
      “I don’t know why the Sinhalese are now complaining. They are suffering from a self inflected wound.”

      Indigenous Sinhalayo do not know why Tamils are complaining about war crimes and crimes against humanity? They too are suffering from a self-inflicted wound. That is the war declared by Tamils against the Government of Sri Lanka and Sinhala Nation to create a separate State and promoting terrorism against Sinhala Buddhists.

    Nothing wrong in longing to become a Developed country to comfortably live in ,
    like other similar ones , especially in the West which we fondly embraced and
    followed after colonisation . But to achieve it at any cost , blindly following wrong
    routes is the Curse of all current ills . Sirimavo tried to Force the people into
    learning Prosperity through Austerity which failed thanks to J R J offering his
    tuition ” Mega prosperity through Short Cuts (open your doors and sleep).”
    Up until these two followed Radical steps to force their ways into the system ,
    everything was going in the right direction at least to a certain extent although
    there were some political issues . Limited exports vs Unlimited Imports
    without any regard to regional political climates , I believe , created today’s
    turmoil . What Saudi can afford to do due to its vast Dollar reserve which comes
    from more than 80% of its revenue from exports of oil , can not be afforded by a
    country like ours . Saudis for example import 100 % of its vehicles and pump its
    own oil where as we depend on heavy imports for both and more and on top of
    all these , we are now forced to Import Cheap , unskilled and arrogant and racist
    leaders who don’t understand to speak clearly their mother tongue ! Let alone
    English , does not matter ! If you do not know your mother tongue in a professional
    manner , imagine the rest , like meeting and discussing highly complicated issues
    with foreign dignitaries ! Are we not made fools to sit and watch these follies ?
    Even a family won’t run with a man like this as head man !

      S.J,
      There is something wrong with this opening sentence: “Sri Lanka is a failed state and will remain as such until the People, Media, Judiciary, Politicians, and other State officials act as ostriches with their heads buried in the sand.” Perhaps Mr. VG’s opinions haven’t changed much ?

    Raj-UK,

    Naming the names of those directly responsible for the mayhem, failed state and bankruptcy is not that difficult. VG has named the leaders of the conspiracy against the “state”. Many of them and their families, relatives and friends are still very active. All what we need is a leader who wants to empower the state and not himself or his family and his cohorts.

      “People have forgotten Velupillai Prabaharan who actually won the war for the clan.”

      What did Velupillai Prabaharan actually win for the clan; putting Tamils into the same category as Muslims who became notorious among the international community as barbaric terrorists? Can Tamils in Sri Lanka as well as Tamils in Tamil Nadu be proud of that?

      “If that was the case how did Gota win the war single-handedly?”
      If you have ten times as many men as the enemy, a hundred times as many aircraft, plus tanks , any fool can claim to have won a war.
      But the same fool will have trouble running the country afterwards.
      It was VP who won the war. He forced the Rajapaksas to take huge loans to pay for a war they couldn’t afford. So now we are in deep shit. Perhaps we could sell those MIGS back to Ukraine?

          Eagle,
          If indigenous Sinhalayo had been smart enough to vote for Ranil instead of Mahinda in 2005, they wouldn’t be standing in queue after queue now. They might need to get a visa to go to Nagadipa, but who cares, except some holy idiots.
          Sinhalayo like you still live in the past This is the 21st century.

        “He forced the Rajapaksas to take huge loans to pay for a war they couldn’t afford. “

        Actually India provided nearly $2 Billion to Sri Lanka being GRANT for the conduct of war, that was before May 2009.

        Whatever loans Rajapaksa’s raised after the war I haven’t got a clue as to how they spent.

        The opposition seems to have ignored its responsibility. Even now they should press the clan to demand for accounts of

        Actual annual cost of war/defense between 2004 and 2014.
        All loans/grants received between 2004 and 2014.
        Total number of soldiers died due to war between 1983 and 2014.
        Total number of Tamil Speaking innocent civilians died between 1983 and 2014.
        Total number of LTTE cadres died between 1983 and 2014.
        Total number of JVP cadres died between 1971 and 2014.
        Total number of Sinhala speaking innocent civilians killed by JVP, LTTE and Security forces and their paramilitary thugs.

        How much fees paid to Security consultants, Arms dealers, public relation (PR) consultants, ….. and how they were paid.
        ….
        ….

    Amazingly, 225 charlatans in the legislature

    Most (if not all) of them are likely to be freemasons and/or the seeds of cain (reptilian hybrids).

      Humble, God will not redeem and restore what he did not create. So Cain seeded by fallen Lucifer has a soul which cannot be joined to the Holy Spirit and hence continues to be and do evil only. Jesus said to them, “You are of your father, the devil”

      Humble – long time no see, welcome back.
      .
      Anyways, not fair to treat everyone of them within that 225 as equal.
      :
      Besides, 225 were not automatically emerged in that parliament, had not our ballige puthas kept away from votiing to them.
