What damage Corona had done to Sri Lankan well-knitted society

In the cities and villages people in Sri Lanka have lived harmoniously helping each other and enjoying good times and share the sorrow 

I have sadly noted that our neighbors do not even talk to each other let alone distancing physically 

People have become selfish like in the Western countries where they do not even know who your Neighbour is 

When a bread van, grocery van or vegetable van comes some people do not call their neighbors and share the information

I am afraid that we will take a long time to revive our close relationship in the society which had been in existence for many centuries, after the cessation of Corona Hostility

    According to a statement by GMOA’s Padeniya, last night, our medics also seem to have realized that this country is blessed with something other than their skills. Why not we make use of this advantage the nature has bestowed on us?.

    This is my proposal although some may think that it is laughable:

    I think it is a gold mine. The bell curve the (the normal curve) the west is relying on will take a couple of months or so to peak and will be still high for many more months to come. SL can offer the safety of our land to wealthy people who can offer a premium (say $ 10 millions per person) for a specific period of time. And I am sure there will be many multimillionaires as well as billionaires who would like to send their loved ones here to stay safe and also spend a holiday. For such a scheme to to work effectively in a safe manner to the citizens, the dedication shown by the armed forces and the medics is absolutely essential. Those coming should be quarantined in a center already established for at least three week before allowing them to enjoy the holiday. However the proceeds should only be directed to pay back our loans and not for anybody to divert to a personal account. If we can implement this, then it will be a part of the silver lining that we yearn for.
