With mass media attention spontaneously received on all forms of acts in Sri Lanka a new wave of public gatherings are being organised in all parts of Sri Lanka.   Brother Charles Thomas in his illustrious Kandula take our cultural values, love for mother and father and the need to protect Sri Lanka reciting Magey Ratata Samama Samudu Saranai”.  This program has a very strong following.

Kotuwe Poduhaduruwo will expose the womens dressing habits, tarnish the image of women, not worhy of a Buddhist Monk.  But he has also a very strong following.

Then Kagama Srinandana Thero, trying to be a populist, will pick any thing from Habits of Boys annoying girls going to school to Child Birth. But he has also a very strong following.

Brother Charles Thomas as I understand is still a Roman Catholic, with a diversified knowledge of most religions, especially a deep rooted knowledge of providing analysis of Buddhist Philosophy.

The society need to be watchful.   There are burning issues faced by the nation, not about dressing habits of women, not about boys passing a Line of Attention of girls, but education of younger generation.

I urge the readers to pick wisely what is best for Sri Lanka. Mushrooms could also be poisonous.
