I HAVE A DREAM………Martin Luthe King …………

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.”

Photograph above is extracted from the Web-page of Megapolis .When I see that area being developed by Chinese ,I feel that Mahinda had some vision and a dream,and if it could have been continued  just after his debacle ,we would have been selling plots to investors. Construction Industry, Cement Industry would have been booming by now.

With Nelum tower in the background , development will be a dream for us .They plan to liberalize boat ownership and Sri Lanka upper echelon who has money will buy a Yacht  ( instead of buying a Benz or a BMW) and park in Port City Marina .It is timely that we started the Yacht Repair and Building Yars in Colombo and Galle

We need Marinas and high riseslike in Singapore with good facilities and entertainment to entice  investors  .

People may protest including JVP because they do not like the country to grow .If the country develops they will lose their vote base.

No country can develop without corruption at some level, Even though there are some people in both set ups get some kick back ,we will have a development which will benefit all of us. .
Giving off Mattala Airport and Hambantota is  mere shortsightedness ,and I hope that it will not happen .

I have a dream like Martin Luther King ones said ..

I want to see that whole Sri Lanka will be a Marina –Paradsie

    My only dream is not all that , a big Ellum Gaha erected at Galle Face,one or two big minee maruwaos and Pal Horus hanged publically there to STOP huges bribes.
    After that every othe dream of all Sri Lankans will come ture in 5 years.

    IT IS NEITHER KITH NOR KIN, NOR THE COLOUR OF THE SKIN, BUT THAT WITHIN, THAT MAKETH A MAN

    S.GONSAL !! LET IT BE AS HIGH AS THE CONTROVERSIAL CHRISTMAS TREE, SO THAT IT CAN ENTER THE GUINESS BOOK TOO.

    Come on gents.

    Do you really want to turn SL into another SAUDI?

    Only Saudi and Iran do PUBLIC PROSECUTIONS.

    My dream is a PATRIOTIC VIGILANTE GROUP somewhat like in Philippines. No expensive lawyers who can save ANY criminal. No BS! Crooks ———-> Bust

    Nothing official about it!

    I humbly submit, that before we enable Sri Lankans to buy and moor their Luxury Yachts in the Port City Marina, let us make sure that a Science Stream with skilled science teachers and fully equipped Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology and Media laboratories exists in every RURAL SCHOOL!

    Let us defuse the mad costly competition to TRANSFER from village schools without a science stream to city schools with a science stream. Too many bright students fall by the wayside without the means to get an education that leads to a job, to become a hewer if wood and a drawer of water for a small elite! How will we fulfill the promise of a meritocracy that we spin to our citizens!

    Put our children’s education FIRST, make sure there are SIX science students for ONE Arts student, so we don’t produce tens of thousands of starving Arts graduates to be later shot down in the streets in demonstrations demanding jobs they are not qualified for!

    Give our children an education that leads to rewarding jobs in a modern technological world, not to a fate as dead bodies littering the streets!

    This goal is much more important than a few hundred STINKING RICH Sri Lankans mooring yachts in the Colombo Port Marina, don’t you think?
