Everyone is much hyped about making Galle –a tourist destination. There were plans to build an offshore breakwater connecting Rummassala Hill and the Old Dutch Fort. Unesco seems dead against building the breakwater but Government is insisting that by building the break water which will protect the Galle  bay area will be quite large marina It may be 10 times existing harbour .Everyone is dreaming about building a Manaco” in the south.

Master plan for Gallle harbour is quite specific with details of additional pier area and Yacht parking areas .Existing harbour will become the service centre for the Mega Marina .Sri Lanka Port Authority  has signed an agreement with a Saudi Investor to start a yacht repair and building yard inside the harbour .

Now a Indian company moves in to take over the whole harbour to build a mega  marina   Indian company is also vying to take over Eastern Terminal in Colombo and pushing Sri Lanka to allocate large parcel of land in Trinco  and Hambantota as well .

Though Indians are also pushing the government to allow them to start a ship yard in Hambantota, SLPA is already entertaining Chinese shipping company Cosco and China Harbour Corporation to build a Shipyard to repair very large vessels .

It looks like Indians are eying for Colombo. Galle,Hambnatota  and Trinco  but Chinese are also  pressurising government to allow them to occupy both Colombo and Hambantota

Government is trying to make both countries happy and visit to both countries by leaders have given them hopes .

Two Giants will be fighting to achieve their Goals and tiny Sri Lanka will suffer ?

There are few proverbs in English

When two elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers

Or

If the big two ox fight then the rubble gets the brunt

Or

Maldivian idiom that explains how juniors get affected when elders quarrel or perhaps, when two ministers fight public gets the brunt etc.

Let us be the audience and watch then fighting

    Indian Governor Chandruka, Sirisena the Peon and Ranil the Coolie will fix the Sinhalese for the Indian Empire and Indian colonial parasites.

    What happened to Adanis harbor that is supposed to be bigger than Hambantota and to be built within 400 days in the West coast of India to compete with Hambantota.

  3. Ancient Sinhalaya Says:

    What heritage for Galle now? It’s a mussie town. Baby machines working overtime and have filled the whole
    place with mussie xxxx. It is like any other town in Sri Lanka. Thirty forty years ago those town were Sinhalese.

    Sinhalese
    have one child. Mussie have 10 children. Mussies have mussie only schools. They fill them up to the rafters,
    and then creep into our schools and fill them as well. Richmond, Aloysius used to be Sinhalese schools. They
    are fast disappearing under mussie onslaught. If Sinhalese children can’t go to mussie schools, why mussie
    children can go to our schools? But Sinhala modayas won’t understand those things.

    We give them FREE education, FREE medicine. Mussies think why not breed, breed. That’s their agenda to overwhelm the
    natives. That’s what they did in old iran, afganisthan, pakesthan, bangladesh, maldives, malaysia and
    indonesia. Breed, breed and when the numbers are right start killing natives. They are very lucky, they
    got the ideal place for that. Why? Because Sinhalaya famous for being modayas, already licking the mussies
    backsides for their votes. Modayas don’t know it is short term. Very very short term since as soon as they
    got the numbers right, unbelievers have to die. That’s what the terror book preaches! Sinhala modayas having
    the time of their lives! Sinhala modayas like the crabs dancing in the boiling pot!
