On the eve of erecting Nelson Mandela’s statue one must reflect the true Nelson Mandela. In this connection a Paper written by me long ago would provide useful evidence..

    Dr Karunaratne. I read your article in 2013, and now again, by checking out this link. I totally agree with you.

    But it looks like that this new talk about a Mendela statue in Colombo is old news. The idea was mooted in May this year. Lankaweb carried the following articles about the subject then:

    http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2020/05/15/a-nelson-mandela-statue-in-colombo-no-laughing-matter/

    http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2020/05/21/national-heroes-memorial-statues-and-politicians-unworthy-of-them/

    It could be that the project has been abandoned, as it must.

    (Caution: However, the fact that I have not come across any recent news report about the statue in question coming up in Colombo does not mean that the proposed statue is not at all becoming a reality by some chance.)
