The False People In Viyath Maga – Living The Lie Destroys One

By Shyamon Jayasinghe

Shyamon Jayasinghe

Oh My God! What a collection of intellectuals we saw at the Viyath Maga 2nd Annual conference Conference, on March 4th in Boralesgamuwa. The slogan of this movement is “professionals for a better Sri Lanka. “ Or in Sinhala, it is “Piripun Lankawak sandaha” (Towards a fully developed Lanka).

The venue was Rose Garden Hotel Boralesgamuwa. Dayan Jayatilleka has claimed a 2000 crowd of ‘professionals, entrepreneurs and educated people.’ I have seen this hall and in my estimate it cannot accomodate more than a thousand. Of course, some may have seated on the laps of others.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa admits in his speech he formed the front of these awe-inspiring intellectuals. That, somewhat let the cat out of the bag but we will come to that later.

Scrutinising the pics, I and some friends in Sri Lanka didn’t spot any significant numbers of known ‘professionals, entrepreneurs and educated people,” that Dayan Jayatilleka speaks of. I cannot say what Dayan means by ‘educated.’ But there were no noteworthy ‘formally educated’ persons in the audience. Although Dayan doesn’t think that employing the criteria of ‘educated,’ to a specific person raises inherently difficult issues, many would agree with me it does, and that the identification of an educated human animal is wrought with controversy. On the other hand, his confidence in deciding who is educated and who isn’t certainly illustrates Dayan Jayatilleka’s naivety and unsophistication.

The ‘intellectuals’ who graced the front VIP seats included Mahinda Rajapaksa, Dallas Allahapperuma, Vasudeva Nanayakkara, GL Peiris, Udaya Gammanpilla, Nivard Cabraal, former CJ Sarath N Silva, Nalaka Godahewa, Dayan Jayatilleka, Basil Rajapaksa, Bengamuwe Nalaka Thero and Ele Gunawanse Thero.

Gotabaya, in his speech twice addressed a “Janadhipthi Thuma,” and so I looked all around the picture for President Sirisena. In these times-one can never say. Not at all! Gota has forgotten his former strong-man bro has been deposed!

This gives a clue to the psychological condition of the ‘intellectual front’ that is very revealing. These are people living a lie so much so that they have come to believe in the lie.

In a research study, Winnicott (1960) and Rogers (1959) state that we all wear two selves – a false one and a true one. Oftentimes, we put on a false self before others for our protection and to keep conversation free-flowing. For example, for social etiquette purposes, it is common for us to put on a face that, ‘everything is right,’ although actually things may have fallen apart. This kind of behaviour is socially functional as it enables the to and fro of conversation. Politicians and marketers engage in pretences and even then it is acceptable. But only to a point. If one keeps building on this false image too far, without one being aware one is carried away to a psychologically pathological level of make-belief. It continues to be is a self protecting armoury to ward off one’s wrongs; but at great cost to one’s self. The false-self destroys its wearer. Not so much others, unless the wearer is in power or in control over others.

In the context of the intellectual VIPs in the front rows-they aren’t, mercifully, in power. To external observers, however, their true nature is seen in the naked. The false phenomenon becomes a naked one to the many others. The audience and wider public cannot but avoid asking questions about the true self of these posers.

Yes, self-queries simply pop up among observers. Their self-unaware nakedness is so stark that the organisers didn’t bother to create the facade in the first place. Like the fabled emperor who ‘wore,’ clothes. Officially they announced that this is an organisation of intellectuals solely to help form alternative policies. Good. But, then, why these particular former VIPs who belonged to the deposed government? Right in the front? Why let Gota come out and admit that he is among the organisers? The official organisers let this go because they are dangerously afflicted by the pathology of living the lie to such a point of no-return that the lie has become ‘truth,’ to the latter. Why create a facade when the facade is the truth?

In case you have forgotten, take a look at these guys in the front: Almost the whole bunch mentioned above are facing serious charges and are playing for time before going to court again. Gota’s name is tagged to several murders and disappearances. Former Army Commander and now Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka says that Gota ran a special intelligence unit in Colombo for his activities. Many of these men in the special intelligence unit have been the common link in murders and disappearances of dissenting journalists and even the poor young ruggerite, Thajudeen. Gota is also accused of big corruption over the MiG purchase. So much for the organiser of the Viyath Maga. Nalaka Godahewa, a favourite of the Rajapaksas, has also been charged of fraud. Wasn’t he bailed out?

Next, take Gammanpila: He is accused of serious embezzlement of funds belonging to an Australian. The case is now on. Basil stands accused of embezzlement of Divineguma funds meant for distribution to the poor. Cabraal’s politics seriously jeopardised the professionalism a Central bank Governer should display. How he danced like a tail wagging behind Namal when they went to campaign for the Commonwealth Games!

Many other individuals in the front have had questionable reputations. Former Chief justice Sarath N Silva is known as ‘gedera yana gaman,” and he admitted he saved Mahinda Rajapaksa from charges over the misuse of Tsunami funds. He attacked Mahinda then but now has camped with the latter. Isn’t Premanath Dolawatte a lawyer in Namal/Yoshitha’s and their grandma (Menik Aachie’s) defence team?

About Elle Gunawansa, here’s a story published in Colombo Telegraph of 20/02/12: “Sinha Ratnatunga’s ( now the Editor in Chief – Sunday Times) book Politics of Terrorism: The Sri Lankan Experience released in 1988, ascribes to Gunawanse an important role in the events of July 1983. He first appears (p.12) trying to whip up the emotions of the crowd at Borella cemetery. Gunawansa, wanted to harness the anger of the crowd and turn it against the Tamils. Gunawanse played on the alleged mutilated condition of the bodies to incite the crowd, demanding that the bodies be shown – ‘even a little dismembered finger’. That was the beginning of the holocaust.

The monk, who was the leader of the Sinhala Mahajana Peramuna is presented on the evening of the 24th of July asking the Army funeral authorities to show the bodies of the dead soldiers before they are interred. There is an oblique reference to him (p.16) as the monk who had come uninvited to the cemetery, who, that same evening, led a mob down Cotta Road, Borella, with a list in hand. He was subsequently reported being seen at the Cinnamon Gardens Police station, having come in a jeep with a pistol tucked under his robes, demanding curfew passes. The longest reference to Gunawanse’s activities appears on page 32 regarding the events following the late night cabinet meeting on 27th July.

And the former President, who is crying to get back, appointed Elle to the Police Commission! Do men who love their country do such things?

Some other ‘intellectual’ participants do not face court charges but they are reported to have made naive utterances not befitting anyone claiming intellectual achievements. Take the former SLFP Minister, Richard Pathirana’s doctor-son. His name is Ramesh Pathirana. Richard himself had a bad reputation of being nasty to public servants. He used to refer to the latter crudely, like “are geheni ta enna kiyanna…(ask that woman to come here). ” However, one cannot hold sons responsible for the sins of fathers. On Ramesh’s own part, he hasn’t a good record of contributing to intellectual discourse. Dr Chaminda Weerawardhana, writing to the Colombo Telegraph on 23 Feb 16 charges that Ramesh Pathirana,”demonstrates a high level of disrespect for women.” Dr Chaminda refers to a social media update by Ramesh. Ramesh’s ideas become more outlandish because of an image it carries of a young woman, presumably a prostitute, exposing her breasts. The image is utterly derogatory of womenkind. Romesh was referring to the issue of HIV/Aids. Are only women responsible for HIV? Has the germ come from air? What about men- on -men games? One would have expected from an intellectual discussion an analysis that is deep and goes into social roots. Apparently, our intellectual hadn’t the capacity for that. How ‘educated’ people like this can make for a better future for Lanka, only Viyath Maga people can explain.

What is worse, Ramesh uses such silly reasoning such as the following:

“In India people with HIV/Aids amount to 2,200,000

In Sri Lanka it is only 130,000

Therefore, the proposed ETCA with India would not be good for Sri Lanka as it would spread HIV”

Ask a secondary level student from any school and he will tell you this is weird logic.

Then, we have Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka who hasn’t been sure for the last four decades as to what political stand he should take. Dayan joined The Eelam People’s Revolutionary Liberation Front (EPRLF) some decades ago and became a Minister in an EPRLF Northern government. He says he resigned shortly. But can that absolve him for his decision to join in the first place? Then, he flirted with Premadasa and he used to submit ‘political analyses’ to the latter. Premadasa, a practical man, couldn’t digest long-winding theoretical discussions and he gave Dayan’s analyses to his Private Secretary who was clueless. Dayan, next, tried out his presentation of analyses on Ranil Wickremesinghe. Ranil, who is particularly savvy about charlatans and jobseekers, scoffed at the analyses. That began Dayan’s unbending hatred of Ranil. Dayan, next joined Mahinda Rajapaksa. He got a billet as a Diplomat and couldn’t keep it. It is said Gotabaya was responsible for pulling him out. Dayan then wrote against Gotabaya, but now he sees Gota as the future saviour of Lanka.

The problem with Dayan Jayatilleka is his inflated ego. He thinks he is God’s gift to Sri Lanka and that the analyses that come out of his brain are so brilliant that anybody should agree. If he were to honestly take stock of himself he will have to reckon that most of his past analyses have been off the mark. For instance, his prediction of the last Presidential and General elections went haywire. He even forecasted that Anura Kumar Dissanayake will do better than Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Gotabaya himself said some stupid things at the meeting that raises questions about his own intellectual capacity. In the first place, he shouldn’t have stated he was one of the organizers of this Vityath Maga. That’s strategically unwise. He next, stated that his government gave total freedom to public servants to carry out their duties and bring creative ideas. A blatant lie! How was the poor Samurdhi Niladhari tied to a tree by a Minister of his government? How was former CJ Shirani Bandaranayake illegally removed from her post for defying his brother Basil’s Divineguma Bill? In a collective crude act the entire former government of Mahinda Rajapaksa removed the CJ in a bogus impeachment. Actually, Mahinda should lose his cvic rights for this, alone. Our complaint is that the Yahapalanaya government is too soft.

The whole ostensive concept of the Viyath Maga exercise is to ensure educated persons lead in the development of the country. One thing MR, Gota, Basil and the whole shoot didn’t do was to engage educated men and women and listen to them. Dissenting journalists were killed or sent missing in White Vans. That was an age of untruth like the one Trump has started in America. Trump must have learnt it from the Rajapksa Government. MR thought it fit to appoint a gold -necklace -snatcher as one of his Ministers. Gota thought it fit to co-opt Duminda de Silva, now in the place where he should have been long ago, as MP supervising Defence! There you are! That was Viyath Maga.

A particularly outrageous and nasty thing happened at the meeting that gave away the real self of these false people who met to claim that they must lead the nation.This was when two stand-in comedians were employed to hackle Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. Two of our talents artistes-Rohana Beddage and Bandula Wijeweera gave a display of foul and low-bred taste. Being an artist myself, I am shocked and utterly disappointed with these two artistes for the things they said. They suggested that our Prime Minister was a homosexual and that the Honorary degree he recently got from an Australian University was an “anaachaarya upaadiya”( degree for adultery). Bad as that was, the worse was the scene where our VIP intellectuals- Gotabaya, Cabraal, Sarath N Silva, Vasu and others went into fits of laughter-enjoying the tripe that the artistes dished out. Basil showed all his 33 teeth-implanted at state expense- and smiled away.

One can write a whole chronicle about the misrule of the men and women of the last government. It is another chapter in our glorious Mahavamsa!

Viyathmaga should disband and join Gammanpila’s “Pivithuru Hetak.” A leadership vacancy might arise if Gammanpilla goes ‘inside” (athule).

Please do not howl in laughter at this piece pf mine. I haven’t brought in the laughter. The persons behind the Viyath Maga have done it. Their false face, like Basil’s teeth, stands exposed to the audience and this explains the awesome humour they generate. We laughed at “The Emperor Without Clothes.” In like manner, we laugh at Viyathmaga.

        “Dayan Jayatilleka has claimed a 2000 crowd of ‘professionals, entrepreneurs and educated people.”

        “educated people.”

        Ha ha ha That’s a laugh! If people come to listen to Dayan and Gota, it shows their level of “education!” The problem is, SL has too many “educated” people.

        Dayan, as a Harvard summer seminar alumnus, has found his niche now, interpreting the White man’s opinions of Sri Lanka to the National Dress Gang. His own “western educated” gang wont buy his bull.

        Dayan is like a high-jumper who cant reach the bar but nevertheless keeps on trying. In spite of trying to cover up sparse content with wordy-ornamentation poor Dayan cant reach the “intellectual bar” so he keeps on lowering the bar by catering to a differently “educated crowd.”

        Werner Herzog, when asked, what scared him the most, he said “When I look in to the eyes of a chicken, the stupidity I see scares the bejesus out of me.” When I look into Dayan’s deep-set eyes it scares the hell out of me!

        Gota is a professional? That’s a laugh. He is a bloody serial killer! And even not very professional at that! I can name 1000 serial-killers who were better at it than him.

        Never a dull moment in the sunny isle of paradise, eh?

          He has a Masters from Madras University and Honorary Doctorate from Colombo Uni (for killing innocent people thanks to Dr Laksiri Fernando).

          What more qualification or experience do you want from him to stop you from laughing?

          You are being jealous.

        Million dollar question is: Why is Bond scam Ranil Wickramasinghe protecting the Medamulana thieves and war criminals? Why has a single jarapassa financial criminal not been tried and locked up?

        Ranil and MR, Karu and Basil and Gota should all share the same Prison Cell,

        Shimon your hero Ranil is proving to be worse than this lot!

        Ranil has finished off their dirty work by looting the Central Bank and Sri Lankan airlines to find his dirty politicians.

        Ranil should be impeached as has been the Korean President Park,

    “Gotabaya, in his speech twice addressed a “Janadhipthi Thuma,” “
    The above implies that the group still considers Mahinda Rajapakse as “President”. In otherwords this so called educated group are not prepared to accept the people’s voice. They are against to the democracy and people’s voice. They want dictatorship of Mahinda Rajapakse family similar to Satham Hussein/Musolinie. They want a govt to kill innocent civilians, control freedom of speech, put all the money in their pockets, freedom for drug dealers and womanisers.

    Joke is Shyamon Jayasinghe, another anti-Sri lankan joker , writes it and talk nothing about Ranil Wickramsinghe and what the horapalanaya is doing. It looks he does not think about the need of an alternative. Most what you have talked here is bad blood. IS it because you are UNP. ?

    Since the indpenedance Sri lankan govt is full of brain-dead people who are the chosen people. We here from time to time how they screwed up the system and then how JRJ finished it. JRJ set the system for a mafia to gang to loot. so, the quuestionm is which gang of Mafia is good running the country. Mahinda fia rajapkse and the gang is the pinncle of the JRJ politicies.

    Ranil was there, in the govt when JRJ was doing those. and Ranil is continuiong the same program. If-Ranil-CBK-MaIthri group is good why FCID is a politicial organization and nothing recoerved yet. If Ranil is for the country, why Ranil’s first in the 100 day program is Central bank loot. Ranil’s voter base is Tamils and Muslims. CBK’s neighbours in London are Tamils. So, they are making the country a comfortable one for Tamils and muslims. Sinhala people, particularly sinhala buddhists, are discriminated.

    In order to make the western community and Tamils happy how many things Ranil have done. It is simply Ranil who is chasing for the President post and for the Nobel prize at the expense of the country.

    See, how Ranil is appeasing Parliamentarians for nothing. See how still invididual ministers are calling for tenders and they get the commis percentage which is mandatory if the govt buys something. That is also western corrupt system how adopted by every business.

    Thanks Shyamon for this write up.
    I hope and pray this Rajapaksa clan and their henchmen will never again be elected to rule our Land. In my opinion, they are a bunch of hoodlums / criminals / thugs./ gangsters / ruffians who destroyed / pillaged / plundered our Country thinking they have the right to do so just because the war was ended during their tenure in Office (credit should mainly go to FM Sarath Fonseka) . Whatever the shortcomings / deficiencies / failures of this Government (and there are many) or any future government may be , I believe, they will never match / exceed the misdeeds of the Rajapaksa regime between 2009 and 2014. We should be glad and relieved the miracle occurred on 8 January, 2015 and I thank the 6.2 million diligent voters who made this possible. This mob who were ousted are clamouring for recognition and to recapture power. I believe anyone who supports this mob today (after all the exposures), should get his/her head examined! Such people can broadly be categorised as ultra Nationalist Racists who think anyone who holds a different viewpoint is a ‘traitor’. There are many such folk who are safely / happily living in lands beyond Sri Lanka in so called westernised countries. Gota and Basil were also two such people. What hypocrites! They, more than anyone else, should feel / realise what it is like to be a minority group in the country they live. All human beings have been created in the image of God and deserve to be treated as such.

    Good one Shyamon – especially the para on the chameleonic Dayan J, who is still thrashing around trying to find his ‘place’ anywhere he can. A wannabe posturing as an intellectual, as most of his ‘prophesies’ and analyses will display his abject failures in those areas!

    Is the circus going to do its rounds with the criminals disguised as clowns hoping to be the main attraction and distract the voters once more with their lies and bullshit? If those who oppose these gangsters can organize themselves, they should show up at the next meeting and protest like the anti-Trump crowds do in the US to show that there is real resistance to these parasites.

    Even though the Yahapalanayas leave much to be desired, at least there has been an end to the abductions, disappearances, assaults and banning of websites, etc, etc., for which many of us are thankful for.

    The impact and landmark nature of the Viyath Maga annual convention is discernible in the coverage in the country’s top business paper which has a wide corporate readership, the Daily FT ( owned, I might add, by the Wijewardene family, hardly backers of the JO or the Rajapaksas). I quoted the figure of 2000 from one of the two Daily FT reports.

    http://www.ft.lk/article/601558/Mahinda-pricks-Govt.-over-plight-of-public-servants

    http://www.ft.lk/article/602544/ViyathMaga–Professionals-for-a-better-future

    As for the politics of Viyath Maga, if the choice is between the Rajapaksas– especially an MR+GR slate– and Ranil Wickremesinghe, who was described on TV a few days ago by his Oxford educated cousin Prof Rajiva Wijesinha as “a slimy crook” and ” a disgrace to his grandparents”, I think Viyath Maga has indeed made the right choice and I am happy to have done so too, within and outside their company and well before their founding.

    As for myself, my own credentials and capacities and international profile, let me not blow my own trumpet but leave the readers with something that appeared on the site of the ‘Center for 21st Century Global Dynamics’ of the University of California, Santa Barbara, just a few days back.

      DJ says “..let me not blow my own trumpet but..”!!!

      Jeeez, this from a guy who consistently blows his own trumpet – and who knows what, or who else he ‘blows’ in his quest for recognition!

      And to cap it off he quotes from the site of (wait for it!) UC Santa Barbara! Wow, such a well known and distinguished center of learning, no less!!!

      He also wants us to listen to his comrade in arms the hypocritical Rajiva Wijesinghe – Tweedledum to his Tweedledee, who describes “his cousin” RW as “a slimy crook” and ” a disgrace to his grandparents”. Rajiva should know, being of the same genetic stock and being one of the “slimiest” (along with DJ) and repulsive creatures around.

      Dayan, we are all aware of Ranil’s inadequacies, but this is about your idols and you. And given the choice, I, for one, would choose RW over MR, Gota and the other Mafiosi that are desperate to return and rip off the country and its citizens once more.

      Give us a break!

      Hey Dyan,

      “As for myself, my own credentials and capacities and international profile, ……….”

      I searched for two words in that article of yours. The first word was Sri Lanka. The only occurrence was the reference to your being Sri Lankan. The second word was raja. No mention at all.

      In an article where you have discussed many past leaders, and the happenings in a number of countries, why have you not even mentioned your own Raja? Why is there no reference to your country at all?

      I know why. The article wouldn’t have seen the light of day if you had defended either of those two.

      Aren’t you leading a double life my dear?

      DJ,

      So you read SJ’s article after all, although you belittled it in a comment you posted on Sarath Alwis’ thread. Honestly you are a shameless character. You are building hope that Gota will get to contest the Presidency in 2020. Do you know convicts of murder and frauds, are not eligible to contest as they will have no civic rights? See you in 2020, that is if you live that long.

    Agree with Jim softy… this writing joker is merely a puppet of the government. I propose him to look at facts and figures of any International or national source about present Sri Lanka, and compare the same with the period prior to 2015. If you do, then put a write up with these data too; then he would be the most prestigious so called journalist. If you don’t mind, I would say now even the IMF has warned the government to tighten the monetary policies! R u even aware so called shaymon writer? Not your imaginations, fictions and gossips which some one fertilized to entertain your followers, write the truth based on facts and figures in all sectors, not about your personal political view even.

    Mr Shaymon must be the real deal to dis the others who happen to be Pros in Srilanka.

    My Elders tell me there is a Yahapalana Investment Show in Melbourne next week to display the Elite Digs Shangrila and AltAir in particular.

    Also how to have punt in the CSX which Templeton abandoned…

    Apparently a Yahapalana Minister who is an Expert is at hand to give advice.

    This exhibition is aimed at high net worth Oz Lankans who have retired and want a slice of Yahapalana Opportunities to make a buck.

    Wonder whether this domesticated Aussie in his own words will attend to check it out.

    I mean a Pad in AltAir. as a holiday camp.

    Apparently they are going to give free cocktails too.

      “Apparently a Yahapalana Minister who is an Expert is at hand to give advice.”

      Why haven’t Foreign Policy Expert Sajin Vass Gunawardena and the great Mathematical Genius Wimal Sangili Karuppan Weerawansa seen among the mobsters?

      Were you there carrying MR’s b***s?

      Did you see the Royal Astrologer Futurologist Sumanadasa Tilak Abeygunawardena among the mobsters predicting expected changes to scientific thinking and technology?

    First of all it is not the second annual conference but it is the first one. Imagine the first one itself making the UNP supporters shiver with fear. Actually this conference was attended by those who supported yahapalana gang two years back and even those who voted for UNP were there.

    No one is saying the distinguished attendees at the event were any Bodhisattvas with nothing wrong, but they are people who have done remarkably well in their chosen job during the past government. Gotabhaya, Basil did their job for mother lanka. They are not some incompetent stupid baffoons like in Yahapalana government. Educated people, professionals and businessmen like that quality. Already the business community in Sri Lanka has fallen out with the current government due to their policies, inability to make a decision, incompetence and incapability combined with extreme stupidity.

    Sorry to say Shyamon your fan RANIL = Incompetent stupid white a$$ licking fool who has no vision for the country.

    So people like Gota who delivered what is good for the country.

    Look at how economy is going down under yahapalanaya. MR, GR and his lot has proved they are capable and can make SL developed. And yahapalana has proved current UNP lot is useless and should be kicked out.

    Shyamon,
    Great write-up, particularly the low-down on Dr. DJ.
    But sadly, education is a very relative term in this pearl of the Indian Ocean. Yesterday I spotted a still from a film about D.S.Senanayake. We do need factual historical films about recent history, including the Bandaranaike assassination which you wrote about recently. But this picture featured D.S. speaking through a hand-held loudspeaker (Chinese made) in the 1940’s.
    The producer is our supposedly educated Minister of Justice, Wijedasa Rajapakshe.

    If only the deposed filth could point to something they did for poor villagers in nearly ten years in office?
    Saddam and Qaddafi were socialist who provided free health care,education,housing and social security this lot did nothing but plunder for the family and eliminate opponents.Foreign missions in Colombo are obviously aware of the cowardice shown by government in allowing this filth to remain free?
    In what other country? RTI what a sad joke on genuine voters?

    Today’s Daily Mirror:
    “Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has been summoned by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry probing Serious Acts of Fraud over an outstanding due of Rs. 165.2 million to state-owned television for advertising during the 2015 presidential election campaign.
    So, Dayan, these are the Viyuthmaga intellectuals who gathered at your Boralesgamuwa Meeting? Leaders who rob and defraud the country are going to make it a “Piripun Deshaya.” Am I reading you right Dayan?”
    You are nutty!!

    Hey Shyamon and other Ranilistas, let’s cut to the chase.

    Ranil has never ever won a presidential election, and judging by the official SLFP’s stance he isn’t going to be able to abolish the presidency either.

    So, come December 2019 it’ll be a Presidential election, and if its RANIL vs. GOTA who do you think is gonna win?

    Would the CPA like to do a public opinion poll, huh?

      “So, come December 2019 it’ll be a Presidential election, and if its RANIL vs. GOTA who do you think is gonna win? “

      This is wishful thinking on your part. You are still daydreaming.

      First of all Gota, MaRa GoTa, needs to be tried for all the criminal activities, and if found guilty, should be jailed or hanged, as he wanted to do with Sarath Fonseka.

      On January 8th, Mahinda Rajapaksa, by using all the state resources, and putting out multiple cut outs, etc. still could not win the Presidential Election.

      The populace is much more mature now. The so-called “educated” who came for Viyath Maga, are cronies who got favors from MaRa and GoTa, and “educated’ Idiots with IQ’s around 79.

      Do the so -called ” educated” support crooks, and cannot tell right from wrong?

      The Nugegoda Rally, probably attracted around 6,000 and the numbers are dwindling. The IQs of the average person is going up , the support for MaRa and his cronies are going down.

      Was Song, MaRa MaRa, given below sung, by the “educated’ people?

      MaRa MaRa ChaTu MaRa
      MaRa MaRa AmaNa MaRa
      MaRa MaRa HoRa MaRa
      MaRa MaRa DhushaNa MaRa

    If one wants to know what the educated urban middle classes think about RW, MR, GR etc. read this report by a credentialed researcher and scholar.

      “read this report by a credentialed researcher and scholar.”

      What is his IQ and Intelligence?

      Is his IQ as high as that of Wimal Buuwansa , of 2/2=0, fame? Certainly, there are enough of those with sufficiently low IQ’s who consider, your reference to be “a credentialed researcher and scholar”.

      How many chromosomes does he have? 48? Do you know?

    The writer has posed some serious issues that Dr DJ must resolve if he is to save his credibility;
    1. Why did he join the EPRLF? Wasn’t that bad judgment? wasn’t that a traitorous act?
    2. There were no “educated people and entrepreneurs,” described by DJ in the audience. The Rajapakse family is uneducated. All thugs only.None of them can lay claim to any proper formal education. MR’s lawyer thing was a joke. His son Namal’s law pass is a worse joke. Only educated man is GLP but he is a ugath modaya.
    3. DJ’s has been in the habit of presenting analyses to leaders but not a single analysis was right. His analysis at the Presidential and General elections went wrong
    4.DJ lied when he claimed there were over 2000 in the audience

    Old Sapare has got back on he pulpit again!

    He must have got particularly offended by the song routine of the veteran artists Rohana Baddage and Bandula Wijeweera.

    These two artists made fun of the pedophile circuit, obviously making Sapare red.

    G. L. Peiris and Dayan J made the gathering a summit of the learned. Sapare can bark, we don’t care.

    All participants of “Viyath Maga” were robbers (except very few brain-washed professionals such as GLP), most whom were beneficiaries of corrupt Rajapaksha regime. I know how Gota treated professionals who worked under his ministry in contemptuous manner. Once he removed higher management of SLRDC (who were senior engineers) for objecting to his fancy ideas.

    Anae Sumane ( KA Sumanasekera ),

    You say ” This exhibition is aimed at high net worth Oz Lankans who have retired and want a slice of Yahapalana Opportunities to make a buck. “

    Is your Goigama friend HLDM who was married to a Vellala lady from Manipe part of this “high net worth Oz Lankans who have retired ?

    Is your smart patriot Goigama friend DJ has a figure of how many Goigmas attended the Viyathmaga other than the Rajapakses and him ? If he has the 2000 count for the attendees I’m sure the names of them and other breakdowns including their financial standing in SL and overseas he will have ?
