    I must add something to this article. It is one of my pastime to meet many foreigners as possible for a drink, tea and even a meal. The business I have is bought and run just have a social gathering with these strangers. I do that almost daily just to escape the hectic busy business life I live.
    A few year sago at a similar social I met a Tamil Nadu high ranking police officer who was on an official invitation and for the first 1 hour he was cautious and apprehensive about meeting a Sinhalese like me.
    First like of his defence on me to know that I came from the Christian background.
    I explained to him that that we Sinhalese are a friendly bunch which some of us are historically linked to people from TN and even to Portugal with every other name has a Portuguese sur name and our Sinhalese language has many Portuguese words and even Indian words.
    At that very moment one of our Portuguese maids turned up and I got her to use the computer to give the Portugese words used in the Sinhalese language like
    Shoes — Sapathu
    Shirt … Kamisa
    Had … Thopi
    Table Mesa
    Liver ….Fekuddu
    Last and the most important word which I used to entice the numerous Spanish and Portugese gils I had was

    Last and the most important word which I used to entice the numerous Spanish and Portuguese girls friends I had was the most important word that got their attention was MARRAGE and the Portuguese and Spanish word is KASADA.
    He was flabbergasted and I too told him that 99% of the Tamils live amicably with us the Sinhalese and our kings had Dravidian Devales for them. At the end of the day he was very pleased and he showed his anger that some Tamils in SL is using the absurd separatist issues to either make money,unfairly seek refuge in the Western countries thus degrading the people of TN.
    He visited Kandy as a guest of my people and saw to himself the peaceful lives of the Tamils who live among the Sinhalese. I am sure they will now take a hard line on them.
    We also must blame our leaders for the sorry situation when like of Gota gives a diplomatic passport to Karuna,KP is given a VIP status and MR as the Prez allows Cameron to go up, north. He might as well allow likes of Cameron to canvass for VP to become the next Prez.
    We must blame our leaders of the past for our sorry situation, when we should be the real miracle of Asia.
    Too busy to correct this.
    Why can’t our two bit roughish leaders do what I could do to promote the island. I am ashamed to be a Sinhalese and we are a failing race….
