WE ARE IN A RIGHT ROYAL MESS; is there a way out?

Monday, November 7th, 2016

 Gomin Dayasri Courtesy The Daily Mirror No new faces, no innovations, no out of the box thinking, no principles – appeals not to the floating voter; the vote that changes regimes, as did the good governance kids in 2015 – more inclined to be anti establishment- to the old or new outlaws.

Gomin Dayasri Courtesy The Daily Mirror Tagged national compass, zigzags erratically in the hand of President Sirisena. Hold it southward, swivels northbound. President carries no magnetic power in his grasp but gasps to be the elected Prime Minister. Naturally, the mind goes back to a time before and his compass, computer-like adjusts accordingly.

SLFP ON BRINK OF DESTRUCTION; CAN IT BE SAVED?

Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

Gomin Dayasri SLFP is on a path of self-destruction ably assisted unwittingly by its hierarchy.

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

Gomin Dayasri Courtesy The Daily Mirror Friends of Yahapalanaya (good governance) are hard to find and an extinguished breed.

Tale of two govts or Two of the same!

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

Gomin Dayasri Courtesy The Daily Mirror Sadly the government is trying to belittle the Paranagama Report to prevent MR from scoring points… the previous administration’s high officials’ and its few Cabinet Ministers that could read English were lazy to read a lengthy text….

ONE-UPMANSHIP AT CRICKET

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

BY GOMIN DAYASRI India’s refusal to take DRS [Decision Review System] on board is just not cricket. Call it adulterated cricket. ICC has a queer boardroom. If respected journalist Scyld Berry’s [Telegraph-UK] description of the last CEO’s meeting in Singapore, is credible – is ICC Indo-centric after suffering from a bout of Anglo Australian hangovers where […]

REQUIEM: One has to lose – Other has to win

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

By Gomin Dayasri One has to lose – other has to win, to say the obvious. Who’s going to be the fall guy – Ranil or Mahinda – in electing the Lord of the Throne for the Negatives? Picking the loser is less onerous task than the winner. Two defeated old codgers closing on seventy need […]

Election Results: MID-TERM REPORT

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

By GOMIN DAYASRI Candidates made up, with make up, show pretty faces, virtually unrecognizable when met with their harassed appearances.

HERE IS ANOTHER ELECTION RESULT

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

By Gomin Dayasri Here is an election result…UPFA led by Mahinda Rajapakse (MR) singularly as a party, has secured the largest number of members of parliament: yet is unable to form a government, as it cannot muster a majority.

By GOMIN DAYASRI Didn’t waste time of Mahinda Rajapakse [MR] by seeking appointments when he was the President!

Drifting without a leadership?

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

By Gomin Dayasri Happenings around are unenviable: zany events unfold in rapid succession; voters are bewildered, skeptical, disoriented. Worse- democracy is not standing tall, as desired.  Corrupt practices remain alive and made sophisticated. Are we drifting aimlessly without a leadership? Loosing moorings is sailing towards a sunset unknown. Time is insufficient to ponder. Corruption is […]

AFTERMATH OF AN ELECTION

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

By Gomin Dayasri 100 – day government is off to an astonishing start.
