The Grand Gang Bang

By V. Kanthaiya

Note from the Author – In case you don’t know the meaning of the word “Gang Bang”, do not search on the internet. The definition of the word is given below.

Gang Bang means;

1. The successive rape of one person by a group of other people
2. An instance of Violence by involving members of a criminal gang.

I believe that most of the adults in the country have watched the so called ‘adults only movies” screened in the shabby old theatres, at least once in their lifetime. These are not the explicit pornographic adult content which you can download from the internet, these are the Hindi, Tamil, Sinhala or the Malayalam movies rated ‘A” by the censor board, with hardly two or three ‘scenes’ which would typically contain an actress taking a bath with clothes covering her bosom to bottom and some smooching scenes which would remind the viewers a dog sniffing the ground in search of the piece of bone the canine had hidden deep inside sometimes back.

Mahinda Sirisena RanilYet, this society or I would say a segment of society call this movies as erotic and go to these theatres which are infested with lice. The reason why these crowds go to watch the movie is not really for the erotic content ( which any one can watch in the internet itself without your part of the body being eaten by lice), It is for the thrill and the excitement the ‘scene’ would appear in any moment during the movie, which pulls the crowd to the theatres. The theatres will boost up the expectation of the viewer through putting up a poster which would contain the voluptuous legends like Sumana Gomez or Shakeela, so the viewer would have high expectation about the content of the movie. But in reality, most of the times there would not be any ‘scene’ like that, or the ‘scenes’ would not be up to the level of expectation of the viewer. And in fact, even the ‘scenes’ which were depicted on the poster would not be there in the movie.

The present level of the believers of Yahapalanaya, and most of the people who have voted for Yahapalanaya is in a situation, not much different from those who went to the ‘adults only’ movie theatre. They voted for the Yahapalanaya to watch some ‘scenes’ to happen, but nothing has turned up. Yet some die-hard fans say that we should not lose hope since there is still time for the ‘scenes’ to happen.

During the last presidential election, the common opposition has portrayed Mahinda Rajapaksa government as a den of corruption, nepotism and lawlessness and what they had portrayed was true. People did not have much trouble about the characteristics of Mahinda Rajapaksa. There was a consensus among the citizens of this country that he was evil, but the dilemma Majority Sinhalese people had was whether he was a necessary evil who would develop the country or an unnecessary evil. Most of them thought that Yahapalanaya can do the same level of development with no corruption and no nepotism.

The Yahapalanaya started its innings with a no ball, the Central Bank Bond Scam and the government was lucky since most of the Sri Lankans outside Colombo didn’t understand the meaning of the word bond, and what it is used for. On the other hand government investigated its own scandal and gave a clean certificate to itself and the media who was trying to dig into that was called pro tyranny.

The second blunder was taking the first baby Daham Sirisena for day out to New York. It couldn’t have been an issue if it were a Zoo or a children’s park in New York, but unfortunately it was the UN  session and instead of showing the zoo animals to the first baby, President Sirisena was introducing his offspring to the world leaders. This was a shock to the public and the media as President Sirisena citied the Rajapaksa clan’s nepotism as the key reason for his defection in November 2014. Yet the die- hard yahapalanaya fans believed that the Sri Lankan President was setting an example to other world leaders that how a ‘daddy should care for his child’.

The gravest blunder the Yahapalanaya doing is how it prosecutes the tyrants and the corrupt bureaucrats of the previous regime. It had projected Mahinda Rajapaksa, during the election campaign as someone similar to Idi Amin of Uganda. Sirisena and the UNP stalwarts created a massive hype about the level of corruption in the mega projects, the thousands of white van abductions, killing of Lasantha Wickremathunge and unknown number of journalists, killing of parliamentarians Pararajasingham, Raviraj, Maheswaran , killing of activists Lalith & Kugan and the killing of innocent civilians in Weliweriya for demanding clean drinking water, needless to say about the thousands of civilians killed in the humanitarian operation.

Yet the Yahapalanaya is investigating only the Avant Garde & the payment default to the ITN advertising. It seems everyone in the Yahapalanaya, including Champika Ranawaka has forgotten what they have told us during the election campaign about the misdeeds of the Rajapaksa clan.

It is now obvious that Yahapalanaya also tries its best to fool the citizens of Sri Lanka. It has not delivered the promises it has promised. Yet it continues to promise that the promised promises would be delivered. But on another way, the government is quite clever in the way it confuses the people. One can say with confidence that this is not good governance, but he or she cannot say with the same level of confidence that this is bad governance. Such fluid is the level of government activities and the way each minister contradicts with the other, people are left in a constant state of dizziness. So they are left with a conclusion that this is neither good nor bad governance, this is just ugly governance.

What has gone wrong with the Yahapalanaya?

We have changed the government but We have not changed the system.

President Sirisena and Prime Minster Wickremesinghe are busy cutting deals with the former tyrants so that their future as the rulers of this country would be secured. Now there is just a dummy opposition. The pro Rajapaksa faction is doing its best to pressurize the government and get ministerial portfolio. Despite the animosity they spilled on each other the Yahapalanaya politicos and the pro Rajapaksha politicos are in the same boat. Of course, they have spent millions to become parlimentarians (just to serve the country) and they need to recover that cost with some profits. So, despite the verbal abuses in the past, everyone needs to be in the government.

What about the Sri Lankan Citizens?

So far, Sri Lanka has withstood the ‘banging’ by this politicos since there was an opposition and it was done by a single political party at a time. For the first time in the history of the country, both major parties have joined together in the name of the unity government and have started to ‘bang’ the country at once.

The country can be saved only by mounting the pressure on the government by the civil society and the free media. The one biggest advantage we have is the social media, but unlike the other countries, the Sri Lankans scarcely use it as a platform to stage their protest against the misdeeds of the state.

I believe that the time has come to stop dreaming that the Yahapalanya will deliver its promises rather than cutting deals with the dissenting politicos. It’s the time for the Sri Lankan Citizen to act through all the possible yet peaceful method to pressure the government to deliver that they have promised.

    Well said Kanthaiya! Corruption, nepotism endemic in Sri Lanka, and not just among politicians. Unless and until the common folk recognize the evil of such a corrupt system, nothing will change, despite changing of the guard.

    The various perks given t politicians (money to buy cars, houses etc.) should be drastically curtailed. They should be made to earn only a normal salary, commensurate with their academic, and professional experiences. Family dynasties should be made to retire.

    Colombo elites should be assigned to govern the most rural districts with the stipulation that one has to live in the district from which they contest for at least 70% of the time. Only then will we see REAL democracy.

    I have to sadly agree with the author that the prevailing situation is best described by the title of his article “The Grand Gang Bang”. Now the cream of the employees of the state too have gone to the street to demonstrate. WHY? On the surface it appears to be the Car Permit. Many fail to realize that that is the trigger. The underlying cause which is simmering within their minds is the grand deception that they were subjected to in being parties to the “Rainbow Revolution”. With inducements and coaxing we witness the passage of the budget with a two thirds majority. THAT’S EASY. To appease a set of crooks is cheese-cake. But can you fool the public for-ever? Jarapassa had no idea when his sudden end came to his door-step. Watchout! Jarasena and Jarasinghe, Yours would be no better.

    V. Kanthaiya has gone against his vein, on to a non-dramatic topic. ‘We need to pressure the government to deliver what they have promised’.

    I am a bit surprised that Mr. Kanthaiya would readily relinquish his trade mark style and go on to deliver something what most contributors to this site spend their time on. This content is so sterile; so unlike Kanthaiya.

    My faith in Kanthaiya for enjoying a good read stands bruised.

    Mr. Kanthia, you are being very unfair. And impatient. If I did not have some regard for CT, I would not bother to comment but I am an avid reader of CT and your attitude in comparing My3/RW to the previous regime and the achievements upto now is totally unrealistic. My3 has to contend with a bunch of government servants who are corrupt and still unable to properly conduct the affairs of the State in line with the ARs and FA. Also, because as the former Auditor general clearly said, there is a large number of voters in the Provinces outside of the North and East who do not TRUST the diaspora, whose clamor for (final) separation is not lost on them. Be patient. We have seen the Independent Commissions, we saw the Bribery Commissioner shake the Police, the Customs and we will see more action. We will also see some stunners in the next few weeks.

    Of course, the option is something we do not need to think of.

    Who are these three Musketeers banging?

    Mother Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah Aethho, and all the Mootals, Modayas and Fools who voted for them in, and and are being fooled now.

    Can we stone them? Ask the Wahhabi Saudi Arabians, if the Sharia Law allows it.

    Excellent exposition of our current state, Kanthaiya. I’m sure you are echoing what most of us (except those with vested interests) are thinking.

    And CT’s choice of photograph accompanying the post says it all! Just take a look at the expressions on those faces! Rajapakse looks stoned out of his cunning mind, Sirisena looks dazed and spaced out, Ranil looks like he has spotted something ‘interesting’ and their bodyguards or hangers-on look like a bunch of seasoned criminals!

    News: MR and Ranil hold closed-door meeting Through the Grape vine.

    Too many closed Doors. Guess what they will be doing? Playing Marbles?

    Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe held a one-on-one meeting in the Prime Minister’s office in the Parliamentary complex yesterday.

    The closed-door meeting took place during the lunch break of yesterday’s parliamentary debate.

    Mr. Rajapaksa spoke in Parliament immediately after the lunch break, and Mr. Wickremesinghe spoke later in the evening. –

    The Grand Gang Bang

    Is MaRa Part of the Killer Gang?

    Ending months of controversy over the alleged cause of death of Wasim Thajudeen, the verdict of the magisterial inquiry into the case is due on December 10, authoritative legal sources said. The magistrate, considering the JMO report and other evidence presented before the court, will determine whether the rugby player’s death was a murder or the result of a fatal accident.

    Will there be justice. or will there be a cover up?

    Kanthaiya has stirred long forgotten memories of my youthful preoccupation with the voluminous mammary glands of the statuesque Rukmani, and the harmless delights of Jeevarani, Sandya Kumari et al. Yes, and for those fleeting pleasures I suffered long-remembered bites on the back of my poor virgin legs.

    Another thing, Kanthaiya, in those long ago days there was no internet to fill in the ‘erotic’ bits. We had a far more powerful tool, imagination. Instant log-in, instant visuals, AND instant satisfaction.

    Careful, Kanthaiya, you got me all expectant with your use of emotive words like bosom, bottom, smooching, gang bang, sniffing and mounting. It took me some time to latch on to the main show, Yahapalanaya. I am as disappointed as you are. TRUE, the present regime of MS/RW ‘showed’ WE the people, titillating pictures of what is to come, but, just as you said “”” in fact, even the ‘scenes’ which were depicted on the poster would not be there in the movie””””

    WE the people have been fooled by another set of bastards, but this time the UNP and SLFP are banging WE the people, front and back (or as they used to say in old Negombo, ‘frontside and backside, depatheng dunna, sir’.

    This whole ‘Yahapalanaya’ thing is a bloody nightmare, Kanthaiya. A horror film you might say. The worst thing is that the rest of the world are looking at WE the people who voted these buggers in and laughing their sides out. What an almighty frucking mess we have got ourselves into (as our new friend Amden might say).

    Kanthaiya, one last thing! The accompanying picture that CT has added to your article is getting on my wick, well and proper. Yes, it is appropriately pornographic given the cast of pricks on show, but can you or anyone tell me what Uncle is doing with his hands under the table, and a beatific smile on his face?

        O Native Vedda

        You triggered off a surge of happy memories. H&E was indeed divine providence in those dark days of uncertainty. It took me some time to get at copies of Playboy (my older brother hid it well, possibly fully aware of the magnetic attraction it would have to a hungry younger brother). Actually, these magazines amazingly did confirm the ‘imagination’ that, if truth be told, was formed by regular reference to my well-thumbed copy of the Outlines of Zoology by Ekambaranatha Ayyar (Heck, I got a credit in the subject, after all that!).

        Those were the days my friend, I thought they’d never end……….

    Very well explained Kanthaiya.. MS is 47 year veteran SLFP politician, his core is as ugly as MR and most other old politicians.. We may see MS little better than MR initially, but does anybody can predict how ugly MS would become in 3~4 years??
    Young UNP politicians gave us some hope in last November for better future, we don’t see or hear those young politicians any more. Isn’t it sad…. What would be Siri Lanka in 2025, where would be other Asian countries in 2025??

    Kanthaiya must be watching Desi Tube clips, to have come up with this piece…

    But I totally agree mate,

    Yahapalanaya is all Bull.. And the Baiyas won’t buy it..

    Boru Sira is pushing his own barrow with Baby Sira, Chathu Sira, Prince Sira and even Dudley Sira in it now.

    While Batalanda PM is trying to juggle several barrows at the same time.
    an
    Priority one is the Vellala barrow with Samband and Wiggie in it towards Eelaam,

    Malik mudalali is giving him a hand though, for one of the others with Gamages, Galleon’s In Laws,and Arjun and SIL in it .

    But Batalanda has to push another one which is the most important, with our whole Motherland in it, towards US and Cameron camp, to make us high in Income in 2035.

    How cool.

    Batalalanda Ranil chased awy our Chinese friends who got the dosh and are happy to spend it to improve our living standards.

    Chinese are now building the biggest Nuclear Reactor ever in Cameron’s own back yard.

    And Chinese Super Fast Trains run from Budafest to Begrade all the way on chinese funded and built tracks.

    Mr Mugabe is exporting 6 Billion USD worth of goods to Chinese.

    Even Sira was boasting that we are a mid income Nation.just in 5 years after Nanthikadal.

    All that was achieved without a penny fom Pommies or Yankees.

    According to Batalanada, it is going to take twenty years to get to high Income.

    And Batalanda was boasting that he got the GSP back and the permits to send Sardines to EU.

    If that plus the 6.6 Million pounds which Cameron has promised is the foundation investment,Batalanda will have to do a Berkshire’s Buffet type job to make us a rich income Nation.

    Even then the Dalits in the South will be in the bush, like in the time when Batalanad’s ancestors were ruling the roost.

    The common man and the civil society should pursue relentlessly to have good governance in the country.

    Disappointment should not deter us in this noble mission.

    Whether the crime,corruption and nepotism are in the past, present or future,the continuous perusal without any let up will usher in good governance for eternity.
