This Picture Of Mahinda Says Thousand Words

By Shyamon Jayasinghe

…. A world where black magic ruled and dark spirits and planets swayed the lives of men and women.”

Readers, it will excite you to try and read this picture of Mahinda Rajapaksa. Try to gauge the character and mindset of the man who ruled Sri Lanka like a dictator for ten years and is now demanding more ruling time.

Any of you noticed a most valuable piece written on MR’s character by Melbourne’s psychiatrist, Dr Prasad Mohotti, and published in the Colombo Telegraph? If you missed it go to archives and stretch it out. I will borrow some of Prasad’s ideas in getting this article together.

Dr Prasad states that MR suffers from a narcissistic personality disorder. Narcissism means love for oneself and the word originated from the myth about Narcissus getting drowned by contemplation and admiring the reflection of his image in the pool. MR was thrilled to bits so much when the “Maharajaneni,” song was composed and sung in his presence that he gifted the composer and singer. A road was named after the singer. MR was similarly thrilled when the popular actor, Jackson Anthony, announced the results of his personal historical research, namely that Mahinda Rajapaksa hails from a long line to which the Buddha belonged! They say Jackson was amply rewarded.

Being my good pal, I hope he was.

MahindaAsks Dr Prasad, “Why does a narcissist put up a grandeur façade? The psychological explanation is that a grandeur façade is an unconscious mechanism to cover his weak and fragile ego. A person with a weak ego has limited capacity to reflect on him or herself. Their grandeur self-image would not allow them to be self-critical and learn from their mistakes, because such action is unbearable to a fragile ego.”

A more humble man, conscious of his human foibles and limitations and ready to share his achievements with others in the team, would recoil at suggestions like this or metaphorically gone six feet under the earth when they were uttered. In the case of our hero-that was not to be. The hero, as Prasad says, managed to convince the population that it was himself who singlehandedly fought and won the war. Lankan media gave the impression that the war had been virtually fought without an army commander. The public swaying had been so great that when MR dragged and jailed the army commander, Sarath Fonseka, and grabbed his hard-won titles for career bravery there was little and short-lived opposition. The few that waded their way toward the jail in protest were hammered with iron bars and sticks

Dr Prasad cites the Diagnostic Manuel of American Psychiatric Association (DMAPA) and identifies five criteria of narcissistic disorder. A fantasy of grandeur is one. The picture under reference shows MR looking proud with the many gold rings in his fingers. They are shining gold that exudes richness and grandeur.

The demand for excessive admiration is another criteria. MR shows his gold rings as though he wants us to be dumbstruck and admire him for the suggestion of prowess that the rings emanate.

A sense of self-entitlement is another of the DMAPA criteria list. MR displays his gold as though he is entitled to the gold and requiring others to acknowledge that possession. It is the same sense of entitlement that made him organize the ‘bring-back’ rallies and also go before his successor asking for PM candidature. Maitri is wise to disallow that because if MR wins and if he becomes PM his narcissism will lead him to browbeat and overwhelm the humble Maitri. Men imbued with excessive and paranoid narcissism are dangerous team mates.

Take a closer look at the MR image. To me MR looks weirdly mentally possessed here. Another dimension, unmentioned by Dr Prasad, can be read in the MR picture. This is the invasion of his psyche with a belief in the occult or in an extra-terrestrial spirit which he thinks can make him draw anyone under his spell. It is the confidence he has in the power of black magic. MR’s narcissism is thus a black magic- tainted narcissism. Note the weird-shaped, paranormal-looking ring between the forefinger and middle finger. The story is that MR had spent millions to get that mesmerizing device made up by a Hindu black magic man. Was it at state expense? Or off the Divineguma funds?

Did you also note the thick orange-coloured ‘pirith nool’ just inside his cuff? MR wanted all the black magic protection he could get.

This particular dimension of character that is brought out by the picture reveals MR’s worldview. Although a man of the raw earth driven by material desires, MR inhabited a universe where dark spirits ruled and planets swayed the lives of men and women.

He does not believe in a universe entirely operated by natural causes and effects. This is why he listened to his astrologer, Sumane, and launched the Presidential elections.

The point is, once such bizarre beliefs infect your mind they don’t leave you, even if events contradict them. It is very similar to religious beliefs about God and divine salvation. You tend to find a way out to explain an ‘exception.’ Hence, MR will continue to believe in the dark arts. His politics is a chess game with the devil.

The world of David Cameron and the world of Mahinda Rajapaksa are poles apart. Our man has crap in his head.

    Though it is not worth of making a comment to your sub-par article, the callowing manner in displaying your hatred against Mahinda Rajapaksa forced me to add a few lines. First of all, don’t try to promote the trifling gewgaw you read, cos’ other readers are not interested.

    Narcissistic Personal Disorder, my foot! The following are the 3 main characteristics of Narcissistic Personal Disorder:
    (i) Snobbish – Can anybody say that Mahinda Rajapaksa is snobbish? NO. He is the most down-to-earth leader that Sri Lanka ever had. He is an egalitarian and a man of the people.
    (ii) Disdainful – Can anybody say that Mahinda Rajapaksa is disdainful? NO. He is the most humble, admirable and loving leader in Sri Lanka.
    (iii) Patronizing – Can anybody say that Mahinda Rajapaksa has a patronizing attitude? Doesn’t it sound hilarious? He is not only compassionate and kind hearted but he is the most approachable political leader that Sri Lanka ever had. His affable and amiable disposition towards people is heart-warming.

    Now, you and your Melbourne’s psychiatrist, Dr Prasad Mohotti, should go for a comprehensive brain check-up. And don’t forget to tell him to perish his publication in an underwater cave.

    You made a request for us to take a closer look at Mahinda Rajapaksa’s image. I did it very gladly. What did I see? I saw a pair of eyes full of kindness. I saw a charming and genuine smile coming from the bottom of his heart that gave a fascinating glow to his face. I saw an attractive manly moustache. Then, by mistake, I looked at your picture! My gracious heart is preventing me in making a comment. Don’t make this mistake again, Shyamon!

    For god’s sake, stop taking extracts from other people’s jargon which are baseless lies. Mahinda Rajapaksa never claimed or tried to convince people that he fought the war, single-handedly. What a stupid notion? His timely and brave decision to defeat LTTE terrorism militarily, combined with his personal courage, determination and leadership, paved the way to eradicate ruthless terrorism from our soil. He gave due recognition to those who contributed, saluted those who fell and fought, and looked after those who wounded. If it was not for Mahinda Rajapaksa and Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, your Sarath Fonseka would have been another ordinary retired military officer.

    Your downgrading of beliefs in astrology, occult and extra terrestrial spirit is below dignity. First of all, you should remember that you live in a multicultural society. It is fundamental to our belief in accepting and being more open to diverse cultures. While respecting other people’s social and political rights, multicultural society encourages harmony and cross-cultural understanding and beliefs.

    Occultism is rapidly increasing throughout the world. There are thousands of publishers of occult books, magazines and websites. There are many people in the world who believe in extra terrestrial spirit. They believe that fundamental, base structures of geometries are what made up the universe and everything exist and creation is infinite. What is wrong in some people believing in that all being are collections of atoms and that their thoughts have electro magnet fields that carry distinct energy which can affect them and others? There is nothing bizarre in it.

    And astrology. Millions of people in the world believe in astrology. From the beginning of time people were fascinated by stars and they believe that people being a part of the solar system, the energies diffused by planets fall on them and absorb by their body. Western astrology goes as far as 2nd century AD (Ptolemy’s Tetrabiblos) based on Babylonian traditions. Until late 1600s, astrology was a part of the mainstream science. After Isaac Newton’s findings, astronomy evolved into a different field using scientific method. Both astrology and astronomy have common roots.

    Now Shyamon, what is your problem in Mahinda Rajapaksa joining with millions of other people in the world in believing in astrology? What is wrong in Mahinda Rajapaksa wearing gold rings, which is common among the people in Sri Lanka?

    I vehemently denounce you in insulting “pirith noola” as black magic. As Buddhists we believe that sound produce certain energies. When ‘pirith’ is recited repeatedly it turns into a particular frequency and this frequency establishes a contact with the cosmic energy which absorbs into our body and surroundings. Black magic is malicious and it is completely different from the benevolent ‘pirith noola’. Next time, do us a favour and learn to do your homework before publishing trash.

    For your information, 5.8 million people love the song “Maha Rajaneni”. You should practice meditation. It will make it is easy for you to overcome your envy and hatred.

    Your last sentence of David Cameron very correctly shows your mentality in boot-licking the west and denigrating the local.

    Now Shyamon, jump out of the well, it is time. When you jump, make sure to jump backward so that you can see the world around and not just the well.

      Dear Champa,

      Unlike some of the impatient others, I read through your rant and my eyes began to well up at your apparent unconditional love for another human, albeit a tyrant.

      But, halfway through I began to suspect your rant could be straight from Mahinda Rajapakse (MR) press office as noted by the hackneye

      You are assuming that nobody had said MR was snobbish, disdainful or patronising. You are perfectly right but MR is certainly an embezzler, crook, fantasist, evil, liar, delusional and a man wracked with paranoia. His unconditional belief in astrology, black magic, occult and the paranormal is that of a simpleton and should be pitied as his mental state is questionable. However, we should be grateful as otherwise he would be lording over us and thieving for a couple more years.

      Your argument that 5.8 million people voted (or possibly bought) for MR should mean 5.8 million people loved everything about him including a dubious song that was handsomely paid for. I am sure you were also taken in that MR is the great, great (several times great) grandson of Lord Buddha. He deserves worshipping. Remember also that over 50 million perfectly sane, erudite people once voted for Adolph Hitler.

      Your other argument is that because people believed in something in the 2nd century, it must be correct. Don’t forget, not many years ago people believed the earth was flat and was the centre of the universe, and several astronomers were put to death for proclaiming otherwise.

      In times like these it is safer to have an open mind and accept that there are other people better educated than yourself and telling you the truth. There’s no need to go off in a huff just because you love MR. After all, love is blind.

        There is no logic at all in your counter-argument.

        Under astrology, I mentioned the period it began. I didn’t say anything about astrology gets acceptance for the fact that it began in the 2nd Century. Though I can give many examples here, my argument was not about astrology or its conformity to facts. You are completely wrong there. My argument was that MR has every right in believing in astrology. Nobody has a right to lambaste MR for his beliefs. He or anybody else doesn’t need other people’s permission in believing in something.

        1. Frontrunner British magazines & newspapers like Elle, Cosmopolitan, Mirror, Daily Express, Daily Mail, Daily Star, Telegraph, Metro….. etc,… etc, ….. all carry a horoscope page daily, weekly, monthly & yearly basis.
        2. US newspapers like Washington Post, NY Daily News, USA Today, Seattle Times, LA Times, The State, …….etc…….. etc…. all carry a horoscope page same as the British newspapers.
        3. I can give you thousand examples in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, …… China, Philippines, ……. India, ……… to counter attack your argument that people who believe in astrology have a questionable mental state. Or does your pathetic argument only relevant to Sri Lanka ?

        Your unsolicited advice doesn’t applicable to me as I don’t believe in unsubstantiated allegations or hearsay about anybody. The second para of your comment makes me feel sorry for you. The rest mentioned in your comment is dirt-cheap to reply.

            Champa,

            On the subject of Astrology, millions around the world believe it and accept it as doing no harm to anyone. If it had any value every Sinhala marriage would be a happy one as the pair’s compatability is assured by their horoscopes. You have the right to believe in anything, even “Pigs Might Fly”. But, it is a bit dicey when you are the head of a nation and basing your policies on what the stars foretell.

            As already proven, these predictions are useless as otherwise we would not having this conversation and you’d be a happy bunny in the arms of your worthy President Mahinda Rajapakse.

      If you are going to quote technical terms that you do not understand, please make clear exactly what is this frequency that you are talking about? In Kilohertz or Gigahertz? Is it light or sound? Any fool can talk about cosmic energy but has anybody proved it with evidence?

      ” And astrology. Millions of people in the world believe in astrology. From the beginning of time people were fascinated by stars and they believe that people being a part of the solar system, the energies diffused by planets fall on them and absorb by their body.

      Even the Devil can quote the Bible.
      Just because millions of people believe in mumbo-jumbo in this 21st century doesn’t mean that it is true. Kindly watch the how the “Royal Astrologer” Sumanadasa was totally demolished by Sannasgala on ITN. It is still available on youtube.

      And yes, Mahinda does have a manly moustache . That is probably the only good thing you can say about him .

        There is nothing technical about it. It is basic science. It is a technique. I clearly mentioned the word “recited’. Reciting can’t create a light, can it? It can create only a sound.

        Chanting of “Pirith”, a certain utterance of syllables, creates a sound. When you recite something repeatedly it create different levels of vibrations. Everything exist in this universe is reverberating, nothing rests, everything moves, everything vibrates and it is a given scientific fact. That is why I said everything has a particular vibratory frequency. Frequency is the number of cycles per a unit of time measured by Hz. For eg: When you play a guitar, the vibration of its strings sets the air particles in the room, vibrates at the same frequency. This air is called energy in spirituality. Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development. The word ‘pirith’ attached to Buddhism and the technique it uses is basic science. I don’t talk about anything that I don’t know and it applies to what I talked about Mahinda Rajapaksa and everything else.

        About astrology, I talked about Mahinda Rajapaksa’s right in believing in astrology. Please read my reply above for Sylvia. It applies to you too.

        This may be a disappointment to you but I stopped watching ITN, 4 months ago.

          If you bandy technical terms like “frequency” about , then you must provide evidence. If you are talking about sound vibrations, you ought to know that they die down (decay) fast. Otherwise we wouldn’t be able to hear ourselves talk.
          Kindly explain how sound vibrations can inluence this alleged “cosmic energy which flows into our bodies” . I am a technical person, so I need facts, numbers and diagrams if any.
          I too believe Mahinda has every right to believe in astrology if he wants to but he has NO right to use it in governance.
          In the same breath I condemn Ranil for his frequent visits to Indian temples. It is most unbecoming of a man who is highly educated.
          Anyway, this discussion is not about pirith or astrology, but about Mahinda.
          You are obviously an educated person yourself, Champa. What I don’t understand is how someone like you cannot see through this obvious charlatan and poseur Mahinda Rajapaksa.

          The most cherished and admired fact about Buddhism around the world is that it the most logical of all religions. But, you bringing in the paranormal benefits by wearing the “Pirith Noole” is delegating Buddhism to magic and illogical beliefs rampant in all other religions. If you analyse the basics of astrology i.e. the map of your future, I can’t see the point of knowing it (as it is already mapped out) but strangely, if you are capable of altering it, by charm or otherwise, then it makes no sense as you are able to change course and the map is made redundant.

      Where was that kindness and loving kindness when he was abusing General Fonseka for 3-years? May be you go an teach MaRa some manners from what you were preaching here. If you abuse people, then the abuser gets it back 10-fold, as he is experiencing it right now.

      Is n’t it one of his cronies at Tangalla that raped and abused a Russian woman and murdered her partner. This kind hearted leader and head of government, kindly protected the murderer, instead of dispensing fair justice according to the law of the land. How is that for fairness in this crooked thugs heart.

      The man wears ready made pirith nool assemblies bought from cargills, as all other public conning politicians do. Pirith nool are the saatakaya equivalent for political wrists. If any one is insulting pirith nool it is this kind of conmen, who think that they could even con the deities above.

      “Until late 1600s, astrology was a part of the mainstream science”. That is correct. With the advent of Astronomy, which is an evidence-based discipline, Astrlology is relegated to pseudo-science or junk science. No self-respecting university in the world offers to teach or reserach in it.

      So is your theory of harnessing “cosmic energy” through pirith nool. Just wishful thinking without a shed of a proof.

      I would really be worried when a statesman, who needs to take imporatant and rational decisions on behalf of the electorate,depends on these mumbo-jumbo.

    This article only covers his human weakness. I wonder how many commenting against him are not without any weaknesses including the journo of this article. That said, people still admire him for the strength he possesed during the war, like the past presidents he did not cave in or give into international pressure & Oh Boy, pressure they did…
    Yes he has all the right to say he won the war, as the Commander -in– Chief the forces had to follow his orders if half way he had caved in & pulled out the troops like the previous president, the troops would have had to pack their bags and go home… A successful CEO of a company will always speak in the terms of the first person, though it’ s obvious that others too contributed too its success.
    And it’s in the Buddhist & Hindu culture for some at times, to dabble with the occult, nothing new there.

      To Renu

      While your misinterpretation is heartily welcomed, I savagely condemn your immaturity! I have heard this before. It is not new.

      For your information, I have never met Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa, never spoke to him personally, never attended any political rally in my whole life or never written to any newspaper until January 9, 2015. The Congratulatory Card I bought for him was soaked with tears on the 9th. Like many other millions of people in Sri Lanka, I am both sad and angry for the injustices brought to him by back-stabbers, liers, conspirators, vindictive people and avengers.

      I have seen many dead bodies caused by LTTE bombs and grieved for them, though they are not my family or friends. I have seen the destruction caused by LTTE terrorism. I have seen the sacrifices made by the security personnel and grieved for them, though none of my family or friends are among them. I will never forget the fact that I am alive to this day thanks to Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa and I am in debt to him with my life.

      I take it as my duty in doing everything in my power to do justice to him. Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa is my heart and soul. And like other 5.8 million people and more, I don’t stop until I see him in his rightful place again, in accord with right for the leader who brought us life and peace.

        Champs… You are also a victim of Mahinda’s ability to deceive anyone by his unscrupulous speeches. It is sad to see that there are educated fools in Sri Lanka who still do not understand the reality.
        Please do not tell me that you are patriotic Sri Lankan… You are just paying homage to Mahinda … More “Mahinda Patriot” … Well the back stabers, liers, vindictive personalities were born on the mahinda era.. Who made the people suffocated and survive instead of living.. This was a “well sketched robbery” performed at a high scale.. It becomes even easier when majority of the people are gained very limited education (planned well enough to suppress the knowledge of the people so no one could raise against the government ) and educated fools, very ignorant people were around… Before media freedom was not there … Mahinda and the family always intervened which eventually helpless people had to give up rising against corruption … people became blind folded to this dictator’s crimes… And moreover, his hunger to gain power again would clearly exhibit his greed for money( since he thinks Sri Lanka is an easy source of money).
        Well I don’t blame the ministers as people like you would just fill up their pockets.. FYI : Mahinda did nothing for the war … It was all the field marshal’s and dedicated solider who won the war… While Mahinda was pocketing money and gained all the fame of being a war hero… Simple as that..
        Champa I would never want to correct U at all here .. Bcs we need people like you to with was the difference from this new governance….

            Reasonable, however you haven’t met the clan yet nor have you aware of how they ran a fiefdom. Remember Sri Lanka also has other things, racists, bigots, Southern Rednecks, child molesters, rapists, murderers, war criminals, former owners of white vans, thieves, Somawansa, Weerawansa, Dayan, Nalin, former terrorists, ………….

            “Do you have any objection?”

            No objection as long as you avoid all those listed above.

              So what? I never condemn my country for any reason, especially for political gain. Everything you named can be seen in other countries too, (stand for correction if you can name any country without them) that is the truth, including terrorists, EXCEPT Weerawansa, Dayan, Nalin and Somawansa. They are true patriots and one and only to the world. I love them all. Any objections?

              You seem to be not aware that there is a “Little Buddha” living in every Buddhist’s heart. Therefore, we don’t need tattoos.

              Don’t sit and wait cursing the darkness. At least, try to light one candle until you see the Unique Star rising from “Medamulana” sky, bringing life and hope to people again, with its powerful presence and soothing the entire nation with its serene light.

    All this hatred is due to the fact that most of these people have defaulted on their taxes and other payments to government such as lease payments on government land for long periods almost 30 years similar to the Hilton case. Each and everyone of them have done this and now they are happy that he is no longer there to ensure that dues to the government are recovered. This is fear more than hatred. All that was achieved by Mahinda will now go down the drain because the whole system will go back to the way the earlier governments ran the country. Even large loans taken by government supporters in the earlier times from state banks were never recovered and when they are taken to courts the files are lifted from the courts as well as from the state banks. There is no evidence at all.

    TO OLD CODGER. Reference his comment. I tell you that pirith noola is the black magic of popular Buddhism. There can be no sound waves absorbed by dead matter like thread. Nor can dead thread emanate sound waves for good or for bad. Popular Buddhism absorbed local black magic into its fold. Your talk of cosmic forces is plain rubbish.

    Pirith nool ritual is a myth and it is not found in Early Buddhism. Buddha never practiced it as his was a scientific mind. It got mixed up and absorbed when Buddhism got planted in Sri Lanka.

      To Reerie Yaka (not surprised that you are against ‘Pirith’)

      Don’t talk about things that shows your nescient brain, pal. The “Pirith” was first chanted during Lord Buddha’s time in India.

      “Pirith” is the Sinhalese word for “Paritta” in pali, which means protection which is chanted by priests of the Nine Discourses (Suttas).

      About 2,400 years ago, there was a plague called “Ahivattaka” in “Vishala” (now Alahabad). The protracted drought and the famine destroyed many of its inhabitants, first small animals and then humans. The large number of dead bodies rotting in the open air attracted non-human beings too.

      People who suffered from the three fears; famine, pestilence and evil spirits complained to the King who then invited Lord Buddha who was living in “Rajagaha” (Bihar) at the time, to visit “Vishala”. Upon Lord Buddha’s arrival, a rain occurred and cleansed all the impurities. The Lord Buddha then requested Ananda Thero to take a bowl with water, thread and flowers and walk through the city chanting “Pirith” – “Ratana Sutta” which warded off people’s fear.

      The idea of “Pirith Noola” or the Enchanted Thread is to fix the concentrated thoughts of the chantee and the chanter. The action of this melodious and soothing manner in chanting “Pirith” produces a magnetic influence on the minds of people. It is considered that the current of the good wishes (air, positive energy or ‘chi’) flows towards the people and mix in the atmosphere. The first “Pirith” ceremony was performed during the period of King Agbo Sirisangabo, in AD 680, in Ceylon.

        Champa,
        So now it is a magnetic force that is produced by Pirith, is it ?
        So pirith nool has this unique ability to convert sound into magnetism? Wow!
        Well then, tell us exactly how much flux (in Gauss) is produced per strand of Pirith nool? Please make up your mind .
        I am not debating or criticising any religious theories. I am simply against the use of pseudo-scientific terms to support them.
        Also perhaps you are not aware that the Buddha Himself advised people not to believe in astrologers .

          Of course you are right. However, believing in astrology and astrologers are completely different. Worshipping deities also not Buddhism. But people still do that.

          The word pseudo-science doesn’t warrant any explanation.

          I didn’t say “magnetic force”, my dear. I said ‘the melodious and soothing sound created by Pirith produces a magnetic influence – what I meant was the melodious and soothing sound of pirith produces an unusual power of enchanting and captivating influence on the minds of people. The word magnetic has other meanings. When you repeat something at the same pitch for hours, it creates certain vibrations. Nothing rests in this universe. Everything moves, everything vibrates.

          Your curiosity is fascinating. However, taking one or two words here and there and trying to get a meaning doesn’t make any sense.

      You seem to have a problem for sure. I am not bothered at all. You are just one individual while I try to make a voice on behalf of 5.8 million voiceless people and bring justice to our leader.

      As you find it difficult to understand people’s attraction towards Mahinda Rajapaksa, I made a short list. Don’t complain now, you asked for it.

      Mahinda Rajapaksa’s true patriotism, his bravery, the mighty warrior in him, his unique leadership, his confidence, his towering personality, his ability to defeat terrorism within a short period and bringing in much awaited peace and happiness to people, his ability to reawaken nationalism in people, his loyalty for the country, the humanity in him, his immeasurable love for his citizens and the country, especially his love for security personnel and never forgetting the sacrifices they made, his friendliness, his ability to treat everyone equal disregarding race, religion creed, caste or class, bringing political and economic stability to our country, his strength, his determination, his ability to take challenges head on, taking measures to safeguard our heritage, his forceful and powerful drive, his ability to see the big picture, his optimism, his unselfishness, his empathy towards people, his kindness and compassion, having a great mind and a generous heart, taking speedy measures in rebuilding the once war-ravaged country, his far-sightedness, his relentless commitment, having a clear vision, focusing on long term development projects, his ready cooperation and assistance in every field, his ability to embrace new technology, his steadfastness, having no grudge for people who voted against him, his open-mindedness and flexibility, taking timely and appropriate measures to counter-attack false allegations, his tremendous fortitude in admitting mistakes and apologizing to the nation,.. etc…..etc…..

      Our leader Mahinda Rajapaksa is the Father of our Nation and the Country, who brought life, peace and happiness to people. He is the Lion on our National Flag. We are eagerly awaiting to see the dawn of our beautiful country under his leadership again.

      My dear leader, Mahinda Rajapaksa, I love you as much as I love my beautiful country. May you have a long, healthy life to fulfil our fervent wishes in bringing our country back to its former glory and doing justice to our war hero Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapaksa who worked relentlessly and single-mindedly in defeating brutal LTTE terrorism, and rest of the heroic security forces, and also looking after families of our deceased war heroes along with other wounded war heroes and their families and, have a wonderful life with your beautiful wife and three sons!

      I most sincerely thank Colombo Telegraph for the opportunity given to me to voice my opinion.

        Really? When has he admitted to, let alone apologized for any specific mistakes?
        I suppose his large-hearted magnanimity did not apply to people like Sarath Fonseka and Lasantha Wickramatunga.
        And I suppose all these rings on his hands are part of the new technology he espouses?

          To Old Codger

          Yes he did. He admitted his mistakes, apologized and expressed his resolve in not repeating them, at his address after a Bodhi Pooja held at the ancient Habbegamuwa Temple in Moneragala on April 20, 2015. Prior to that at the end of March, 2015 at Abhayaramaya Temple in Narahenpita also he said that the mistakes that led to his defeat should be corrected.(I don’t work for him. I saw all these in newspapers/TV like everybody else.)

          MR’s ability to embrace new technology is related to his “1000 Nenasala telecentre concept” under “e-Library” project. It received “2014 Access to Learning Award” from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

          I can give 1000 reasons to explain why I support Mahinda Rajapaksa whole
          heartedly.

          I don’t understand why you all are against gold rings. Wearing gold rings is very common in Sri Lanka. Silver/Lead/Nickel/Plastic rings are not that/at all popular in Sri Lanka. Titanium, platinum and rhodium rings; everybody can’t afford. In ancient societies, gold has been used in the healing process. In spirituality, it is believed that gold has an energy that emits warm and soothing vibrations to the body which relaxes cells in the blood vessels and helps the growth of new cells which makes healing faster.

            What particualar mistakes did he admit to? Has he ever taken responsibility for Mervyn Silva, Sampath Vidanapathirana and Duminda Silva? Leave alone ego projects like Mihin Air and Mattala Airport(both named after himself). Is this humility?
            Keep on writing to CT, Champa. I like your style, though I cannot agree with all your Ideas. We do need different ideas expressed intelligently. Otherwise it would be like reading the Daily Noise of yore.Do watch ITN now and then. You can see the difference.

              Yes he did! For Silvas. Not directly by name, though. Who is Sampath? I don’t know. MR will never keep a blind eye on people and things any more. Many people abused his good heart.

              How many places/roads/buildings are named after Portuguese, Dutch and the British? Nobody complains. Why not have some empathy for our locals?

              I look at these things little differently. For me, Mihin and Mattala are proudly Sri Lankan and I don’t mind the name “Mahinda”.

              I have made comments to Uditha and Malinda before. And today, Dayan’s.

              Thank you for the encouragement. I am little arrogant sometimes. You all will have to excuse me for that. ITN, I will try.

                Respectable democratic leaders don’t name projects built with PUBLIC money after themselves while they are in power. The Colombo roads named after colonial officials were named usually after they had retired.The De Soysa Maternity hospital was actually paid for by Mr.De Soysa.

    To Champa MR was a warrior. Was it warrior-like behaviour to drag the army commander and put him in jail under false charges and procedure? That was a cowardly act. Was it warrior-like behaviour to unconstitutionally impeach 43rd CJ and later stalk her to bring a framed case of bribery against her? It was a cowardly act against a defenceless woman.MR would soon be brought o justice and will be put into a prison cell with jumpers. Champa can then see the warrior better. MR is a plastic warrior. He defecated when David Cameron marched to Jaffna.Champa must be getting an orgasm when she sees the warrior

If all these are true why did he lose the elections? If he has rebuild the war ravaged country why did the Thamils and Muslims voted against him with both hands? The ratio is 468,9369(27.26%) for Rajapaksa and 1,250,716 (72.73%) for Sirisena? For the information of Champa, Rajapaksa did not rebuild a single home destroyed during the war, did not rehabilitate a single war widow out of 39,000 in the North and 40,000 in the East. This is not bad but the worse thing he did was to allow the army to grab thousands of acres of private lands belonging to Thamil IDPs to build army camps, health resorts, restaurants, swimming pools, pans alas, Buddhist Viharas, golf course, farming, gardening etc etc. It is the tears shed by this hapless people that destroyed him and proved his waterloo. I cannot speak for the Sinhalese in the south but for the Thamils the defeat of Rajapaksa came as god sent gift from heaven! I commend Shyamon for calling a spade a spade!

    Mahinda Rajapakse was always for Mahinda Rajapakse- cum Rajapakse family. Hence, his agenda was personal and never patriotic. A true patriot will focus on the unity of the whole country.The successful outcome of a patriot would be ONE Sri Lankan nation. Right now, Sri Lanka has TWO Nations;or maybe more.MR never had reconciliation and friendship- building as his vision. Personal build was his aim. Hence, we saw him trying to keep himself and his family in power for ever via the 18th Amendment. The picture in my article clearly gives him away. He wanted to conjure an image of a Sai Baba- type divinity. The picture pours out a halo. MR was a true actor and here he acts like a conjurer or magician releasing a spell. CHAMPA is most certainly under that spell.

      For your information, I am not under anybody’s spell. You, yourself attacked MR for believing in those kinds of ‘myths’ such as black magic, occult, casting spells, and now what I am to think? I will have to conclude that contrary to your own words in the article, you also believe in casting spells and that they work! No hard feelings here. I said that for fun!

      As we all know, majority of the politicians are actors. Mahinda Rajapaksa is different from the lot, because he delivered what he promised.

      On reconciliation and friendship building, Mahinda Rajapaksa followed a slow, steady, principled and prudent approach fit for a unitary state, which is long term. He was not for popular and easy, short-term concepts when it come to reconciliation. We all must accept the fact that the subject ‘reconciliation’ is fragile and sensitive. One wrong action can create hostility among the communities as we all witness now.

      I support Mahinda Rajapaksa on principle of the best interests of the country. He made a genuine effort in rebuilding the country as no other leader had done before and tried to bring economic development to the north and the east as a key measure to ease the unrest. He sought another term to complete what he commenced. It is not fair to judge him on the incomplete job and expect swift miracles from him.

      Thank you for your extremely successful article which has received (and continuously receiving) an enormous number of comments. The choice of the title was brilliant. It was the title to which I was attracted to. Otherwise I would have missed it.

        Seriously, what did he promise and what did he deliver?

        “I support Mahinda Rajapaksa on principle of the best interests of the country.”

        Whatever MR delivered they were in the best interest of his family.

        “He sought another term to complete what he commenced.”

          Oh c’mon Veddah, read the last two lines of Shyamon’s comment and accept the truth. He thinks that MR can cast spells and I am under it and that is why I defend him. I wanted to add one or two gibes to my first para. But as I had a hearty belly laugh, I forgot my lines. He shouldn’t have said that. So while accusing Mahinda Rajapaksa for believing in such things, Shyamon Jayasinghe also believes in casting spells!. That’s a monumental blunder.

          Of course, Mahinda Rajapaksa delivered all his promises. He promised to defeat LTTE terrorists and bring in peace and he did. He promised to develop the country, he did. Who thought Sri Lanka would have highways and enormous overhead bridges? Everybody first thought it was a joke. Some people’s eyes stayed in their foreheads for weeks, when they first saw the highway!

          Your last para is not fair. If Mahinda Rajapaksa became a war criminal, it is to save the lives of millions of people like you. Don’t undermine his achievements and sacrifices. It is cheap.

Do you call them ‘intellectuals’? However, I don’t mind them. Without presenting any solid argument and calling me ‘under a spell’ shows weakness.

              When you call Mahinda Rajapaksa, a war criminal and when I explained the reason as to why he got that label, without proving me wrong, you are asking me to go away.

    Hi Champa,
    Majority of intellectuals and unbiased political analysts throughout the world support views expressed by Shyamon Jayasinghe. Majority of the supporters of Mahinda Rajapaskse are Sinhalese extremists including Ravana Balaya, BBS etc. They believe in Sinhalese supremacy only. They do not believe all SriLankans should have equal rights and privileges. For them MR is a real king because through brutality and sheer luck he managed to defeat Tamil Terrorism. It would have been extremely difficult to defeat a terrorist like Prabakaran by a civilized leader like Chandrika or Ranil. Therefore Mahinda Rajapakse should deserve that credit. However after defeating Tamil terrorism, MR never thought of getting the support of all to heal the wounds of the Tamil minority, because he was a Sinhalese extremist and did not have the broad vision of a Statesman. Sinhalese extremists like Champa, do not have a mentality to understand that our country now need a civilized leader who could win the support of all including international community to unite the country and bring real peace and prosperity to all the citizens. There are Tamil extremists who still worship Prabakaran and lives on his memory. They never admit that Proabakaran has done more harm to Tamils than Sinhalese. They are brainwashed by Tamil Tigers. In the same way people like Champa are brainwashed to think in Sinhalese extremist agenda. Champa, please be smart to think rationally, all sides of the story without any bias. Do not blindly worship or admire politicians. They all are a selfish lot. Be open-minded to criticise and condemn bad acts done by anyone irrespective of race, community or religion

      Your judgement of me is wrong. It doesn’t give you any ethical right to label me as an extremist solely based on the fact that I defended MR. In fact I have made many comments denouncing BBS. Everything you stated are your own wrong-footed assumptions. Re: Shyamon Jayasinghe, my comments are not personal.

      I am not surprised that MR’s achievements are undermined. Most of our people are like that. Sadly, he knows that too. We must not cheat ourselves. Six years ago, when we were under the scourge of brutal terrorism, every Sri Lankan’s only wish was a peaceful Sri Lanka. Now after MR brought much awaited peace and happiness to people after 30 years, they criticize the manner in which he brought peace! Some people talk like as if there had never been a war. I am not hesitant to condemn anyone who try to undermine the remarkable achievements of Mahinda Rajapaksa and I stand against any injustices caused to him thereby. Sorry if I sound harsh, but I actually am not.

      For the rest of your comment, thank you. Your advice is very well taken.

    Mahinda’s first job was not to visit the big countries for assistance but to pay visits to dictators. He loved the false grandeur of dictators. He met his old pal Gaddafi and introduced Namal as his “successor.” He next met Mugabe, the Burmese fellow and even the dictator of an unknown country-Belarus! This showed his manic nature. I congratulate the writer and Dr Prasad for their articles.

    Champa, You say: “Yes he did. He admitted his mistakes, apologized and expressed his resolve in not repeating them, blah, blah, blah”

    You are right. But you forget to mention tha he blamed his own close supporters for all his mistakes, saying that his mistajke was to allow them to continue without punishment.

    What kind of leader does that? A true leader admits mistakes done under him and also takes responsibility for things his follwers do.

    MR is a lousy leader. He won the war because he is thug and treated the international community in his thuggish way. That was good. But his mistake was to continue to trat everyone else too, icluding the ‘janathawa’ in the same way. he could not help it. It was all in his character.

    Thank you for loading Apatath Rajek song. I really enjoyed it & finally felt Mahinda is the only leader that we can consider a near king for uniting this country, which ended human sufferring and politico-business click plundering the country using protracted war. I do not know whethe DM adm will post my comment, but hope they do so.

      To Renu

      I don’t need anybody’s introductions. I represent Sri Lanka. My only fervent wish is to see MR back in his rightful place. I am going for it single-mindedly.

      My loving leader Mahinda Rajapaksa, “70 Going ON 50”, will rule this country another 20 years, easily!!!
